An authentic and caring realtor

    My name is Dori McKearn and if you're thinking about listing your home, I'd like to ask that you consider talking with me.

    Most of us understand that in listing your home the goal is to sell quickly, at the best price with the least amount of inconvenience. However not everyone fully appreciates how much the likelihood of that actually happening is so directly related to selecting the right real estate agent.

    In simplest terms, the most effective agents know exactly WHAT accomplishes those goals, and, most importantly, HOW to actually achieve them. These are the capacities that represent the real and most relevant value your agent delivers.

    The very best sales results occur the closer one gets to what's called a "WOW factor." This involves the combined appeal of the property, how effectively it's presented and its price. When this approach is well executed your home stands out as the best available offering and thus sells quickly at or near the price you've established.

    In selecting me you'll essentially be getting four professionals for the price of one. In addition to being an effective real estate agent, I'm a seasoned interior designer and photographer, with a strong business and marketing background, including extensive use of modern sales technologies. I have a career long history of producing in the top 1-3% of my peers and if selected will give the sale of your home my undivided time and attention.

    My services include everything you might expect from a highly effective Real Estate agent, including free consultation regarding the best pricing strategies; preparing the home for optimal presentation, and the overall marketing and sale of the property. These services include an extensive and superior Comprehensive Market Analysis (CMA) which results in heightened confidence in your overall pricing strategy. This process might also include referral or guidance on pre-sale repairs, minor interior design changes, staging, downsizing, organizing, de-cluttering, packing, moving and cleaning.

    Whatever your needs I will walk with you from to start to finish.

    My Client Testimonials

    How would I grade Dori McKearn? I would give her an A-PLUS! She is a lovely, intelligent, conscientious, soft-spoken friend who became my realtor when I was ready to sell my condo & move to a senior residence in the Palm Beach Gardens area. I knew Dori would cover all bases & do her best to sell my condo on Singer Island. I also knew as a friend that she would help me with the psychological repercussions of this big change in my lifestyle. There were days when I felt sad & overwhelmed, wondering if I had made the right decision. Dori took me under her wing & gave me excellent advice. She wanted to make my condo attractive to buyers who wanted to live on the ocean, enjoy a fantastic view & buy a well-maintained unit where everything "worked"! She advised me to paint my walls a neutral color, organize my closets, store away personal items and all clutter, purchase new screens & remove personal items. It looked like a lovely hotel suite by the time the first showing arrived! I said to myself, "Why am I leaving?" As far as her professional qualities, I would recommend Dori in a minute! She handled every form, every legal question, & all the background Information necessary, from our first conversation to the final day of closing. I have a big smile on my face as I realize how much Dori helped me move onto this new rung on the ladder of my life. I have moved within this last week to my new residence & I feel very relaxed, very satisfied & very happy! Ann M.
    When my aunt became ill and could no longer live alone, I needed help selling her home and finding her an assisted living facility. Living in New Jersey and being unable to leave my mother alone, it was crucial that I find a realtor I could trust. Dori was absolutely perfect. She made this process quick and easy. Not only did she sell my aunts place quickly, she helped find trustworthy people to pack up, take furniture to sell on consignment, and move things into the assisted living facility. Dori communicated with me throughout the entire process. She stays in touch to see how my aunt is doing. Not only is Dori a terrific realtor, she is a compassionate, caring person who did something very difficult to do - she earned my trust and respect. I highly recommend her. Donna S.
    Definitely a 5-star service and that's because we can't go even higher! Dori is a very professional real estate agent, making sure that you are buying the right house for your needs and at the right price. Not only she is your realtor, but she will also become your friend. In my case, French  citizen relocating to Florida from Indiana, I didn't know the Palm Beach area at all when I moved in and it was my first home-purchase in the US so I needed some guidance. Dori was perfect in that role, with a lot of experience with international buyers/sellers. She is also very patient!! We visited 47 different houses in a 6-months period before making the selection. She will listen carefully to your wish list, adjust herself if you change your mind, work around your schedule for visits (including week-end). I have been living in my new house for 7 months now and it is the perfect fit for me. You will not regret the purchase of your house and you will not regret choosing Dori to help you! Highly recommended! Yann P.
    I am originally from Austria but have lived in the U.S. for almost 60 years. I was recently widowed and have no relatives in Florida to assist me with the sale of my home and with the associated move. For many reasons, the whole undertaking seemed overwhelming, and without Doris help I really dont know if I could have done it. We received multiple offers and ended up selling for over 99% of the list price in just over a month. At every step she worked with me not only as a consultant but as a friend and confident. In addition to overseeing the listing, she helped me with all aspects of preparing the home and numerous details associated with the move. This included special care, such as finding a handyman and mover, closing out accounts and even selling some of my furniture. I tell people, I love my realtor! I was so impressed with Doris service that I plan on working with her to sell properties I still have in the Czech Republic. Kathy V.
    Dori helped us with the sale of land we had in New York which for reasons entirely unrelated to her had become really miserable. She was always there for us. I fact I talked with her so often I probably became a nuisance. She was a tremendous asset guiding us through the process, assisting us in finding answers and serving as a liaison between us and the New York agent and other related professionals. She was my angel. If I needed a Real Estate agent Dori would be my first choice, because shes the best Thank you Dori Aldo L.
    I recognized early on that Dori was one of those people willing to be patient and understanding with me as we went through a complicated process that sometimes I had trouble understanding and describing. I moved from my home into an assisted living facility after being referred by a Sales Marketing Director whom had recommended Dori. For an elderly person, working with somebody who was kind and understanding really helped. The only regret I have about closing is that I will not be able to talk with her anymore.   George P.
    Dori is very knowledgeably and affable person who Ive grown to admire. Shes very caring always returns calls and goes out of her way to be helpful. Our transaction was quite difficult and she consistently lifted us when we were down and gave us hope when we didnt have any. Dori is a star. Shirley L.

    I first worked closely with Dori in my role as a real estate investor. I was very impressed with her, so when it came time to list my own home I immediately chose her and was sure I had made the right choice.... Dori is a delightful lady who is easy and enjoyable to work with, dependable and honest. I recommend Dori highly and confidently to both sellers and buyers and also to real estate investors. Ana M.
