Fiona was an incredible agent to work with both on the buy and the sell side. She thoughtfully guided us through the house hunting process by curating showings around our needs and priorities. She was able to help us understand the market and the process as it unfolded. She found us our forever home and we are forever grateful. And then, she turned around and helped us sell our first house! What could have been a stressful process was made easier by her advice and guidance regarding what exactly needed to be done to have the best outcome. We’ll always be thankful for Fiona’s expertise, patience, and gentle guidance and we couldn’t be happier with the sale of our former home and the purchase of our new home.
Fiona’s knowledge of the market and her proven strategies made selling our home and buying a new one seamless. She consistently went above and beyond to ensure our concerns were addressed and our needs met! With her energy and decisiveness Fiona was an invaluable resource throughout the process. Without a doubt, we would highly recommend Fiona!
What truly sets Fiona apart is her comprehensive knowledge of the real estate market. Her strategic approach to pricing and marketing my property showcased her expertise, resulting in a quick and lucrative sale. I wholeheartedly recommend Fiona to anyone seeking a broker who brings not only expertise but also a genuine sense of care and friendship to the table. Fiona, thank you for your unwavering commitment and for being the rock that steadied me throughout this process.
We had a lot of choices for a real estate broker to help with the sale of our home. We are delighted that we chose Fiona. From the first day through our closing, Fiona responded quickly to our every question with thoughtful answers. She was patient. And her advice was spot on —from recommending subcontractors to resolving the buyer’s questions. There were a few thorny issues, but Fiona’s approach was thoughtful, diplomatic, and sensitive. She has our enthusiastic endorsement!
From the initial meeting until closing, Fiona was there to walk us through the process and guide us every step of the way. Her professionalism and expertise in staging and prepping our home made the process easier—from the small details to the big decisions. Simply put, Fiona is a rock star when it comes to selling one’s home. We thank her and strongly recommend her.
Moving can be stressful as you tie up the past with plans for the future! And having a supportive expert. Knowledgeable in all areas of the real estate market is essential. There is no one better than Fiona Dogan whose experience, knowledge and access to the market is unparalleled! Trust me when I say, you are with the best!
Selling our home was of great emotional and financial importance to us and finding the right realtor was critical. We were struck by Fiona’s professionalism and elegant demeanor, her passion for luxury real estate and knowledge of the Westchester real estate market, and her holistic view of marketing the property with social media, drone video, staging, photography and brochures to tell the story not just of the home itself but the gated island community. After hearing her strategic and confident approach to pricing the property, we knew that Fiona would do a terrific job in selling our home. Fiona exceeded our heightened expectations in every way. She connected us with an estate sale specialist to create an online auction for valued belongings; oversaw a statuary cleaning and power-washing process that made the gardens and walkways shine; created incredible, beautiful videos of the house and neighborhood; dug through bylaws for the neighborhood homeowners association to find rules around development; and kept us informed on market feedback after numerous showings. She even forwarded us the mail—one of a hundred examples of Fiona going out of her way to help us at every turn. We HIGHLY recommend Fiona Dogan — she is one of the most talented, hard-working, and effective professionals we have ever worked with in any industry or field.
We want to personally congratulate Fiona on an amazing job selling our home. When we decided to move back to Spain, we listed our house with her. Within 62 hours of putting the house on the market, we had an offer, much higher than the asking price, and a contract in place! She showed what can get done through her hard work, experience, and wise decisions. To prepare our home for the market, Fiona had given us a detailed list about what to do. We totally followed her recommendations because we trusted her. Then, she was able to facilitate the process quickly because of her extensive network. She knew everyone who could help. There is always a bit of risk involved when hiring a realtor to sell your house, especially when you don’t have experience or knowledge of the market. But we had heard good things about Fiona. She skyrocketed past our expectations and blew us away! Success is never accidental. As we say in Spanish, “Dios nos bendijo con la ayuda de Fiona.” Thank you, Fiona. You were excellent!
I recently listed and sold my longtime home in Rye with Fiona. She handled the entire transaction — from consulting on market conditions and timing and recommending a pricing strategy, to staging and showing the home, qualifying a buyer, and managing the pre-closing details. She did so with the utmost professionalism, effectiveness and enthusiasm. Fiona showed sensitivity and judgement in approaching my move out of our family home after the passing of my wife. This was an emotionally complicated transition, with more at stake than the simple sale of a home. She showed enormous sensitivity to our family situation and came to the potential listing with a high information, low pressure manner. She and her team moved very quickly after listing to exploit a small market window, successfully clearing and beautifully staging the home inside of a week. She showed it intensively for one weekend and landed an above-ask offer immediately. As a financial professional, I appreciated her high transparency, high-integrity behavior. Fiona gets my highest rating. I would highly recommend her for anyone considering a high-value real estate transaction.
When we saw a photo of her fixing a window and watering flowers at her clients’ homes on social media, we were so impressed with her attention to detail. We never considered hiring anyone but Fiona. She saw through our clutter and possessions we’d accumulated over the years, and could tell our home was a great space with good bones. She recommended organizers that we could hire and days later she came to help with the cleanup. It was so helpful to have her take point because it was an emotional process for us. Fiona is very dedicated to her job and her team is fantastic. They communicated so well and that made it seamless for us. We would 100% recommend Fiona to others.
What was important to us was having someone who we felt was looking out for our best interests. We felt she’d be honest with us and push back when needed. We liked her approach — she came armed with hard data, which helped us set realistic parameters that would allow us to reach our goals. Her connections saved us time. Fiona went above and beyond, exceeding our expectations. We absolutely achieved our real estate goals.
Fiona took the time to build a relationship, she was there to help us through every step of the way even with things like home staging and vendor selections. She helped us to a great area and a wonderful home. Fiona has been in 90% of the homes in Rye, and her knowledge about the local market was a huge advantage. She’s a great negotiator. I highly recommend working with Fiona.
We interviewed a lot of realtors but Fiona was the best fit for us. She had a great track record in terms of sale prices. She was professional. We liked what she had to say about how she would prep our home. She contacted painters and electricians and tile installers, arranged for work crews and met them at our home to let them in and ensure work was completed. Plus, we liked her! She listens. She’s personable. It was like having a family member give you good advice. We never would have gotten the price we wanted if not for Fiona.
When you have lived in a house for a long time, you no longer have a critical eye. Fiona provided us with a four-page list of how to prepare our home. We trusted and followed her recommendations and when we put it on the market, we had three bids in the first week. What’s great about working with Fiona? She is a pro. I don’t know any other brokers who are that hands-on.
Fiona gives you an accurate lay-of-the land. She works with clients in a way that’s comfortable, yet customized, down to her communication style. We had good information from her and were able to make the best decision for us. Fiona feels like your smart best friend who gives you the best advice and gets it done. She’s charming, a straight shooter, and she’s always accessible. The experience with Fiona left us with a good feeling.
I listed my home with Fiona because she approaches real estate with a real business acumen. It’s not a hobby for her — it’s her profession. Fiona is so knowledgeable and confident in her approach. When the offers came in, she guided me through the review of each potential renter’s financials. I knew I had an expert at my side. Things went a lot faster with Fiona at the helm.
Fiona understood our situation and took time to get to know what we were looking for. She guided us through the whole process and had an amazing team to stage the house beautifully! By the time we put the house in the market in October, it was HGTV-ready. Fiona handled everything. When one offer fell through, she calmly went back to all offers and negotiated a great deal. I highly recommend working with Fiona.
I really appreciate how Fiona took what could have been a complicated and emotionally challenging situation, and made it seem so effortless. She was always calm, thorough, professional and yet very easy and pleasant to work with. Fiona always made herself reachable and available so we never felt we couldn’t get immediate responses to our queries. Well done!!
Fiona was very thorough and particular in every aspect, from how to best prepare the house for the market, to staging the house for photos, and advertising and marketing the sale in the best possible way. We are extremely pleased with the guidance and the professionalism offered to us every step of the way and can highly recommend Fiona’s services to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Rye area.
We met Fiona as we were considering selling our home in Rye. She was extremely thorough in her evaluation of our options and in drafting a marketing plan—which turned out to be very effective, as the house sold more quickly than anticipated! We highly recommend working with Fiona Dogan for all your real estate needs.
Working with Fiona has been such a positive experience. She’s organized, intuitive, patient and supportive. She provided us with sound advice about purchasing our first home and about the different communities in Westchester. When showing us homes, she always listened to our needs. Fiona also provided an education about the schools in the area and also allowed us to explore all that was available so that we could find the best fit for us. Always done with kindness, practicality and a sense of humor.
Working with Fiona was a pleasure throughout the process. Making the leap from an apartment in Manhattan to a house for the first time was stressful and confusing in many ways, but Fiona made my wife and I feel at ease through every step of the way. She was patient with us and very accessible—providing advice and guidance not just as a realtor but as an advocate for the vision we had for our new life.
When Fiona Dogan first visited our house she instinctively understood its architecture and character and knew where it would find its best niche in the market. She then put all of her energy, talent and extensive resources to work for us. We have come to think of Fiona as “The House Whisperer”. We recommend her as an ultimate professional without hesitation or qualification.
We immediately felt confident in Fiona’s professional and honest approach to real estate. Fiona’s effective guidance and genuine care smoothed the path to purchasing for us. Her international sensitivity and thorough experience were reassuring and particularly helpful for us as first-time buyers in the United States. Her advice extended to helping find reliable, well-priced professionals for our newly purchased home, and sharing local knowledge to make us feel welcome and at home in Rye.
Fiona and her team of stagers, painters, landscapers, and various tradesmen took over the entire process of actually making our home look its best for sale. Fiona was there at every step of the way, overseeing the entire process and making sure that everything was done properly. Her hard work paid off and our house sold in less than 48 hours, with multiple offers and for over the asking price. We could not have wished for better service, and we are very happy that we followed her advice.”
Fiona patiently showed us a wide variety of homes in our price range, from historical homes with loads of charm and character, to new construction options, and many others in-between. When we finally made our decision, she worked with us through each and every step of the process as we moved toward closing on our home. Because of Fiona, our family’s transition into the Rye community has been seamless. We could not have found a better ambassador for this community.
As first-time house buyers, we had myriad questions and worries, but no question was too small for Fiona. She answered every question with her professional expertise and cheerful outlook. Even after purchasing the home, we have loved getting her emails and tips on all the events in the city and joining the newcomers groups. I really feel like I have quickly developed roots in my new town.
We could not have been happier with Fiona as our realtor! She is very knowledgeable about the real estate in Rye and gave us insights into the culture and the community of Rye. We also were impressed with how responsive she was with emails, meetings and showings. We always felt that we were in the most capable hands with Fiona. We would recommend Fiona as a realtor in a heartbeat!
After many years of considering leaving Manhattan, we were fortunate enough to be referred to Fiona. Her vast knowledge of Rye and surrounding areas assisted us enormously in making the decision to purchase and build our home in Rye. While the house was being built, Fiona consistently informed us of recent developments on our house and in the area. Since moving in, Fiona has come by to see us in our new home, and emailed us notable events happening in Rye. We highly recommend Fiona to anyone looking to purchase a home.
Fiona was instrumental in guiding us to find a great home in Rye. We have worked with a number of realtors in the past and no one provided the quality of care and services that Fiona did. That everything went so smoothly is due to her guidance and help both as a professional and a friend. We are truly grateful that we met you!
From the first day we met, she saw all of the great things about our house and was able to share them with buyers and realtors. Fiona worked hard to ensure we were always aware of our rights as sellers and that we were not doing anything to put ourselves at risk. And her constant communication put us at ease during what could have been a nerve wracking process. Working with Fiona was positively refreshing.
Fiona knew the market and asked us just the right questions to match our needs and wants with the perfect house. We always felt like she always gave us 100% of her time and energy, and was tireless in her efforts to convey any questions and concerns to the owner which led to a prompt closing. A very stressful time was eased by Fiona’s upbeat personality and professionalism. We would definitely recommend Fiona!
She helped us buy our new home and sell our old home all in a matter of a few months. She was very professional, knowledgeable, helpful and patient. In both situations we felt she did more than the average agent would have done — she cared for our our dog during showings! We would strongly recommend Fiona Dogan as a great agent to work with.
A friend recommended Fiona as a realtor and we began working with her to buy a house in Rye. She was readily available at all times and was comprehensive and detailed in the information she provided and the guidance she gave us.

She is highly knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate and we would not hesitate to recommend her further.
