Dawn is that very unusual thing - a totally honest estate agent. She worked with us for 18 months, telling us frankly that the houses we asked her about wouldn't suit us and what was wrong with them. She only suggested houses that were completely in line with our list of requirements. As we were living close on 800 km away her help was essential. When she found a house that perfectly matched our requirements she visited it on our behalf and told us with complete honesty what would need to be done to get it up to scratch. She followed the progress of the house and told us the instant that the price was reduced to what she thought was the correct value. Without her help we would never have found this house and we have spent the last 3 months happily sorting it out.
It should also be said that Dawn has a group of people who are equally excellent at their jobs. Through her we have benefited from excellent financial and practical advice. She recommended the removal company who brought us here in a smooth and professional manner.
Through Dawn we met the team of artisans who have worked on our house and made such massive changes in a very short time.
Dawn has such integrity and kindness that she made what could have been a dreadful process into a smooth transition. I cannot recommend her services too highly.
In September 2018 we went to Javea for a weekend and we visited multiple houses with Dawn. From the very beginning it was very nice to work with Dawn. She is very organized and communicates in a nice way (quick in responding) and has a thorough knowledge of the area and the housing market.
We had done a lot of research on the areas and houses we wanted to visit. In that weekend we found our dream villa. Dawn assisted / advised us with all our requests / questions from the very early stage until the date we signed the official documents and got the keys of our villa. She helped us finding the right people in the area for all sorts of work and she has a great network of useful people, shops, etc.
We would highly recommend Dawn. She is a role model and has excellent communication & organization skills. The whole buying process has been really nice for us.
Our first trip to Javea was in early February, to meet a local agent who sadly showed us properties all above our budget, despite our being quite firm about that issue before our arrival. We found a house we liked, and put in a hesitant offer, but then we received at the ninth hour, a phone call from a friend of a friend, living in Javea, who said 'don’t do anything at all until you have met our friend Dawn Nott. She is an independent agent and will tell you the truth about all the properties you like, not just for a commission'. So we decided against the first house, returned to Javea and met the lovely Dawn, who from the first moment, proved to be the best person we could possibly have chosen to help us find a new home. Kindness and patience should be Dawn’s middle names. Having been told by the first agent that we would never find any property in our budget range, Dawn found scores of them and so we had a far more successful second trip, and were able to make a decision without any pressure from her, just good advice. Dawn’s strength is her vast knowledge of the area and the tradesmen who would be able to help us settle in, plus her generosity of spirit in giving us time and time again, all the information we needed about all manner of things. I have several friends who are contemplating a move to Javea and I will give them all Dawn’s contact details. I would never want them to deal with anyone else but this lovely lady who really is a gift to future Javea homeowners.

I had been to Javea a few times and fell in love with this beautiful part of Spain. I met some nice people here, they bought an apartment in Javea. They told me that Dawn Nott helped them so very good. I decided to meet her and see some houses.
When I met her for me it was so positive that she was so relaxed and calm. Never trying to push me in any way. She helped me with all my questions and when we went to see a property she let me look around on my own. She was always there if I needed her.
Finally yesterday, also with the help of Robban Jansson from Villa Jansson, and Becky, I bought my own little dream villa in Benitachell.
The nice thing is that Dawn also lives in Benitachell so I think that she and I will see each other on regular basis.
If you decide to buy a property you could not be in better hands !!!
We are delighted to have found Dawn Nott of Javea Casas, who helped us to find our home in Javea within a very short time. Dawn rightfully claims to be a "home finder” and we fully endorse that. She was truly professional, diligent, hardworking and she was keen to listen to our criteria, matching us with the prospective seller, unlike other agents who were only pushing for a sale. We were very lucky, through her hard work and contacts she was able to secure a perfect villa within our budget and she helped us through the Spanish buying system. She was present with us throughout the process, including legal, banking and the Spanish NIE process. We wish her every success in her endeavours.

Please accept our genuine sincere thanks for all your help and invaluable knowledge during our search and eventual purchase of our family holiday home in Javea. Both Amy and myself agree that we could not have succeeded in not only finding our beautiful home, but also being guided through the complete process, without your patience and expertise. Many thanks once again Dawn, from Chris, Amy & family.Chris Smith.
Dawn was a godsend for us. We were fortunate enough to meet her at the very beginning of our house search. She patiently explained all the procedures and practices you need to know when buying a house in Spain. She took us round to visit tens of houses, saving us the trouble of having to make appointments and find the houses in Javea. She helped us save a time, which was extremely precious as we did not have much. She knows all there is to know about locations, utilities and services of all types, official requirements and things to do and places to discover. She is such a lovely person that she will make you feel comfortable even in stressful situations. In short, she is the person you need to know if you want to buy a house and settle down in Javea. Thank you again, Dawn!

We would like to say a enormous thank you to Julie at Javea Casas for all her help and advice which enabled us to find our perfect dream home, here in Javea. The whole process was smooth and easy, we had never bought an overseas property before and every step of the way from viewing properties, introducing us to solicitors and a bank manager, getting our NIE numbers, Julie was at the end of the phone or email answering our questions. As we sit here in our beautiful garden with the Montgo mountain in the background, we feel like we are living a dream. THANK YOU.
Robert and Tina Costelloe.
