California Riding Magazine • June, 2014

Meet Dawn Aaris

I was born in the Blue Grass state of Kentucky. Horses and the calling to be a horsewoman started at the age of 3. I remember riding double with my dad on the back of a horse "in the good old days." So, that is the reason my passion for horses, equestrian property and the equine community have a large influence on my personal and professional life.

I began buying homes personally in 1974 along the coast in Del Mar and Solana Beach. I have always had a passion for real estate, so when a friend suggested I do it professionally, all the lights went on for me and I knew I had found my niche in doing something that I love!

I started my professional career in real estate in 2000. Prior to that I spent many years riding my horse on the back trails of North County San Diego, seeing the homes and land from a different perspective.

Within 90 days I became Rookie of the Year and made my way up through the ranks to the top 2% Nationwide. I am also proud of receiving six out of the last seven years as San Diego Magazine's Five Star Real Estate Agent status representing the top 1% of licensed agents in the San Diego area. This is a survey evaluation reflecting "Best in Client Satisfaction."

I have had the position of Director of Training & Education along with Mentoring, which provided me with the opportunity to share my skills and knowledge with new agents teaching contracts and negotiations.

I have also had the opportunity to assist in teaching some Mastermind classes, which revolved around Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich. Desire is the burning key to success and abundance.

My business is 100% based on personal endorsements and repeat clients. My #1 goal is to serve others to the highest of my abilities.

My certifications and recognitions include:

  • REALTOR® certification
  • GRI® Graduate, REALTOR® Institute
  • ABR - Accredited Buyer Representative
  • Platinum ClubTop Agent Award
  • e-Pro
