Testimonial from Yann P.
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.

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!
"I highly recommend Dori Mckearn for all of your real estate needs. Besides being the nicest realtor I've ever worked with, she encompasses every attribute you would want in the finest of Realtors. Dori is highly skilled, attentive to her buyers and sellers, thorough and extremely informative. You couldn't want for anything more. It was my pleasure to work with such a wonderful realtor and such a lovely human being."
" Definitely received 5-star service. Dori makes sure that you are buying the right house for your needs and at the right price. She is not just a realtor, but became a friend during the process. I have bought and sold many homes and Dori is by far the most professional agent. You will not regret the purchase of your house and you will not regret choosing Dori to help you! Highly recommended! "
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 very dedicated, has tremendous work ethic and always goes above and beyond the call of duty. Both she and her team are extremely effective in business, sales and marketing. Upon being selected she immediately rolled up her sleeves and got busy. We first worked together to develop a solid pricing and marketing strategy. She then provided excellent interior design and home staging suggestions and then personally carried out a world class photo shoot which she promptly utilized in our MLS listing, a customized video and a personalized single property website. 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.
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 Dori’s help I really don’t 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 Dori’s 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 she’s 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.
“I am a retired business executive. I chose to work with Dori because I liked the quality of her approach to marketing and concluded that she’d work hard and persistently on our behalf. My impressions were confirmed. She worked closely with us, kept me well informed, and indeed sold our property…the first realtor sold condo in our complexes in almost 2 years. After the closing she stuck with me to facilitate several post-sale related housekeeping matters. I would highly recommend Dori to anyone seeking a top quality listing or buyer’s agent.”
“I am a banking executive with over 35 years’ experience in residential lending. I decided to purchase a second home and Dori was the seller’s agent. She was instrumental in assisting with the negotiations which were not easy. I trust Dori and have no reservations in recommending her highly. Carmen V.
Dori is very knowledgeably and affable person who I’ve grown to admire. She’s 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 didn’t have any. Dori is a star. Shirley L.
“Dori understands how complicated and emotional it can all be to even decide whether to purchase or sell a home, and then to actually get it all accomplished. Ours was particularly complicated because our family members entered the whole thing with what were sometimes quite significant differences in our perspectives and goals. Dori was very patient with us, first as we worked through the decision to actually buy and sell, then to help us find our new home, and finally to sell our previous property. In the end, I can honestly say that my family really benefited from the process of discussing and arriving at common ground. We are now in our new place and we absolutely love it here!
After the closings there were several matters and details that needed attention but which, unfortunately, coincided with an unexpected health issue and family loss. Dori immediately stepped in to attend to those things, including overseeing our move and guiding our contractors, always working in close cooperation with us to carry out our wishes. This added service was really invaluable at that time.” Vivian C.
Dori is great! So diligent in selling my Condo. As a first-time seller, I really appreciate and trust her knowledge and guidance through the process. She also helped us find a fantastic rental in Jupiter Farms. We need some property for our dogs. Dori's patience and she listens, and that's been immensely helpful. Thank you, Dori!
“Dori’s approach to selling a home is very front loaded. We first spent a good deal of time working closely to determine the right price. After that we agreed on a plan to present our home in the best possible way. Here Dori’s assistance was extremely helpful. She gave us interior design suggestions and personally conducted a simple but very effective staging of the home.
We were individually interviewed to gather our thoughts and experiences on what living here was actually like, so as to capture the total appeal and benefits of not just the property but of the community and total lifestyle. Dori then captured these things with excellent photography. The entire package ended up being beautifully represented in our MLS listing.
We had an accepted offer in a little over 24 hours. Dori is very genuine and highly competent and I have already recommended her to others.” Michael K.
“When I was thinking about downsizing and relocating to Southeastern Florida I contacted Dori. She showed me a variety of options from existing waterfront condos to new home developments. Her knowledge of the area, interior design, and new home construction were huge assets to my search.” Joe G.
"Being a nurse, I have the tendency of looking at people and their needs in a rather different manner. I have been working with Dori for quite some time and I have seen her display the same sentiments! Dori is the woman I met via telephone, who with a courteous voice slowly and gingerly began to educate me with such insightful knowledge in purchasing a home. She is a profound contribution to all who have had the privilege of purchasing their "FIRST" home with Dori! She has the gentle yet tenacious manner of getting the job done in the minimum of time and energy. She additionally brightens the world and making life easier for so many in sharing her valuable knowledge with those having the honor of working with her. Thank you, Dori for your lavishly unselfish energy in all the knowledge you have shared with us. May you be blessed in all your endeavors. Dori's mindfulness has rewarded her with the admiration of many, many people. My Dear Friend Dori - Thank you! Rosemary" Rosemary C.

As the former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of American Residential Properties, Inc. (NYSE: ARPI) I have spent several decades in real estate investment and finance. In only seven years we grew ARPI to over 9,000 homes in twelve states. I have known the McKearn’s for many years and have had the opportunity to personally review and observe the approach Dori takes in representing her real estate buyers, sellers and investors. She is clearly at the cutting edge of her industry and profession. I give her my strongest endorsement and highest recommendation.
Stephen G. Schmitz, Former Chairman & CEO American Residential Properties, Inc.,
I am an engineer by education, have been a businessman domestically and internationally for over 25 years, and am currently a real estate investor. Naturally, I have met many people in my line of work. Recently, I worked closely with Dori and found her very personable and, most importantly, very professional. I would highly recommend her. Ricardo V.
I found myself operating under a very tight timeline and feeling extremely pressured to find the right home without having to compromise. Dori immediately got busy. She stuck with me every step of the way, promptly responded to my many calls and e-mails and always helped me stay focused on the result I was looking for. I ended up in a place I just love! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dori to anyone looking for an agent who’s easy to work with and totally results-focused. Angel P.
As the Owner and Creative Director of ADX Creative, I worked with Dori and her team for over 10 years. During that time I found them to be among the best and most effective marketing professionals I have ever partnered with. They brought passion and a unique insight to the industry that carried through all aspects of their operations. I highly recommend them as business associates and greatly respect them as individuals.
Eric Clappier, Owner/Creative Director
Selling and closing on a house tends to have issues here and there. But Dori helped us through the extremely difficult process of closing on our late father’s estate. Dori, with endless class and expertise, smoothed every numerous issue and sold the place for a great price. She saved us time, money, and major headaches! Thank you Dori for everything!
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 aunt’s 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.
