|Colleen was all you could ask for and more in a good realtor. Her expertise in the field, patience, and professional communication made the buying process so much easier. From day one to closing day, Colleen was always readily available to provide valuable insight and helpful explanations at any time. Whether it was helping facilitate with lenders or recommending an excellent home inspector, she and her team came through with the utmost professionalism and personal touches. I would highly recommend the Dowd Group and Colleen in particular for any and all real estate needs in the area. Navigating this market and accomplishing your goals are guaranteed to be easier with her on your team.|
|When my father was ready to sell his home of 52 years, we were happy to have found Connor Dowd and the Dowd Team / Keller Williams Coastal. Connor took the time to listen and understand the needs of my father, and acknowledged the emotions that surround leaving a home after 52 years. Connor and his team showed empathy, understanding and patience throughout the whole process. Connor provided his expertise in helping us understand market conditions, price setting, offer management and closing procedures. He was very attentive and responsive to our questions and took the time to ensure we felt confident with every step of the process. Meg, Dowd Team Manager, was an invaluable source of support throughout the process, providing lightning fast follow up. She did a wonderful job supporting us through all the details and ensured we had everything needed during the sale process. I highly recommend Connor, Meg and the whole Dowd Team.|
|I worked with Kelsey and she was fantastic! Super responsive, had great recommendations, and was very easy to work with. I put in numerous bids, some hours after the listing, and she was on top of it all. She made communicating with the seller simple and I could rely on her to represent me during the home buying process. Can't recommend enough!|
|In today’s real estate environment, with an under supply of homes and an over supply of realtors, it is hard to find one as such high quality as Ellen! Ellen had the patience to work with us as first time home buyers looking for a forever home in a difficult buyers market. She worked with us for over TWO YEARS trying to find a home, encouraging us to have patience, yet always be ready for a fitting home to show up. She never pressured us to make any moves we were not comfortable with, and encouraged us to feel okay with backing out of properties that didn’t fit our needs. If you’re looking for a “turnkey realtor” who will just show up to the house, turn the key and wait to get paid - go elsewhere! If you’re looking for a realtor who will listen and understand your ever evolving needs and educate you along the way, Ellen and the Dowd Team are the way to go!|
|Connor was great! He was confident, knowledgeable, and professional. He provided clear guidance and really ran a smooth process. Our house had an offer in 5 days and closed in a little over a month. There was always clarity. We were very pleased!|
|We loved working with the Dowd team. Their care and attentiveness made buying our first home much less stressful. Ellen in particular went above and beyond for us answering all of our questions in great detail, and at all hours! Our closing was also quick and smooth. We would work with the Dowd team again and we recommend them to buyers of all experience levels!|
|Colleen Hagarty was such a wonderful person to work with when we were buying our home. She was quick to respond to any of our questions and set up showings for us in a very timely manner. Colleen helped us with lender and attorney recommendations. We were also happy to negotiate with the seller thanks to her recommendations as well. She was very helpful and made buying a home an easy process! Even after the purchase was done she’s gone above and beyond!|

|“Connor Dowd allowed my wife and I to sell our house and purchase a new one within 2 months! He was always available for us to see perspective homes. He was fair , honest, and readily available. I recommended him to a close friend who was looking to sell as well. All in all a great choice for a realtor.”|
|Connor Dowd is an excellent realtor. Connor guided me through a very difficult transaction with professionalism and honesty. He works hard for his clients and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking at buying or selling a home.|

|Connor helped us find a Newport condo that is beyond our expectations! Connor represented us every step of the way. He paid attention to every detail of the transaction and was a pleasure to work with. Connor is an absolute professional! I highly recommend him.|
|Connor Dowd is a consummate real estate professional. With Connor's assistance, my family has purchased two homes in Rhode Island. On both occasions, Mr. Dowd represented us exceptionally well. His knowledge, experience, work ethic, dedication to clients, and familiarity with the local market, are all superior. In addition, Mr. Dowd is a fine gentleman with a graceful manner and a charming disposition. Have you sent Connor a message? You can expect a prompt answer from a tireless worker blessed with a profound commitment to excellence.|
|Connor Dowd helped me find a home near my family so I could see my grandchildren on a regular basis. As a senior citizen, I was a bit nervous about the challenge of searching for the right home. I am not a technologically savvy person, and I don't have the patience and energy that I had earlier in my life. But Mr. Dowd took care of everything for me! Connor made sure I was entirely satisfied with my purchase; he meticulously pursued every aspect of my case and he worked tirelessly to advance my interests. I was delighted by his dependable, responsive nature, and his focused attention to specificity and detail. What a charming young man! Do you need a real estate agent who will represent you well?

|Connor was the consummate professional from the first moment we met with him, and he presented himself and his plan for our sale to us, up to closing. We felt like we were his only client throughout the process. When presented with challenges and "curve balls" he calmly and confidently suggested new plans of action that would overcome the problem and continue to move toward the ultimate goal...sale and closing. He knows the Newport market very well and was always spot on with his suggestions and recommendations for us. We found his positive, upbeat, and personable approach to be very comforting throughout the process. We could not be more happy with his service to us and he has earned our strongest possible recommendation. If you plan to sell your house on Aquidneck Island, Conor Dowd should be your agent!!|
|Connor was absolutely great to work with. Extremely knowledgeable on the process and local players. His bidding strategy helped us with the property without over paying. We were very pleased with Connor's work and would use him again.|
|Connor and his team attended all showings, and to my surprise, he was also present at the closing. Having been involved in many real estate closings where the agent only came o the closing briefly to pick up their commission check, I was pleasantly surprised to see Connor at the closing table when I arrived. Connor was actively present for the duration of the closing to answer any questions that arose. In today’s real estate market having an agent who is well networked and understands the local market is essential. Connor’s knowledge of Newport County real estate is unmatched. As a local small business owner my reputation is extremely important and I am typically reluctant to refer other professionals to my clients. I am so confident in Connor Dowd and his skill set as a real estate professions, I referred him to my brother and now Connor has another raving fan!|
|Connor knows the Newport real estate market better than anyone else that I have worked with. His advice is professional, fact based and practical and helped me realize the best possible transaction for my home.|
|I got your text and I wanted to let you know I really appreciated your assistance through the entire process. As I am sure you know owning a mortgage company I have quite a few realtor relationships, but I can say with 100% conviction after working together that I have none that can hold a candle to you. You were aggressive when you needed to be, professional at all times, kept things loose with your sense of humor, and provided a level of service I can honestly say blew me away. From attending the home inspection from start to finish, coordinating showings at the drop of a hat, preparing the contract on a Saturday night, and being present for my entire closing was above and beyond what I expected when I chose to work with you. It was a true pleasure and I wanted you to know I couldn’t have been happier with my choice to have you represent me.|

|We were very impressed and happy to have worked with Connor to find a home in Middletown. We were living out of town and under budget and timing constraints. Over a period of eight months, Connor helped us with his vast network and personal experience to research and then visit many houses until we found the perfect home. He was always available, sensitive to our desires and a true professional. Without hesitation, we give him our highest recommendation!|
|Connor helped us sell our house under less than ideal circumstances. When things seemed impossible, Connor stepped in and handled things efficiently and effectively! He is a true professional.|
|It has been my pleasure to have known Connor Dowd of Keller Williams realty of Newport since 2008. I met Connor when I was searching for a second home in Newport. Connor strives to understand his client's desires and to meet their expectations. Our search resulted in my purchase of a home in Newport in 2009 that met all of my criteria but, more importantly, all of my wife's criteria. We plan on enjoying this home for many years to come. I highly recommend Connor and "The Dowd Team".|
|If you are looking for a no-nonsense, honest real estate professional, look no further. My family and I hired Connor Dowd to sell our mother’s home in September. It was sold by the end of December. In this economy, that’s not an easy task. Connor worked toward a successfully business partnership every step of the way. He listened to us and to what we needed. He suggested a price that drew attention to the home, yet didn’t sell us short. He offered suggestions in the way of making the home more marketable. He even coordinated a person to come clean the yard during the fall. Perhaps what I most appreciated about Connor is that he was direct, up front, and honest...Another strength of Mr. Dowd’s is communication. He kept in constant communication on the interest in the house. If you call him, he will call you back that very same day. This was crucial to me, as I coordinated this transaction out of state. Connor is very accessible to his clients. He made us feel like selling our home was top priority. What more can you ask for in a real estate agent?!|
|As with all closings, things got so hectic at the wire that we never really had time to tell you how great we thought you were and how impressed we were with your service. You are a credit to your firm and If i can ever help you in any way please do not hesitate to let me know. Thanks again for the great service.|
|I want to thank you for all your help with the sale of my sister’s home...but it was a great relief for me to have you take on this task. I felt that you approached the sale no differently than if you were selling a $400K home....from start to finish it took 11 weeks! In today’s market I think that’s damn good! It was a pleasure working with you and I will most definitely refer your name to anyone I know looking to buy or sell.|
|Every e-mail we sent to you was answered within hours. You were honest with us about our properties. While the other realtors held our properties with little effort, less skill, and no results for months, you sold the first property in one day, and the other in several weeks. You were unfailingly kind and considerate as well. Throughout the sales, you were efficient, organized and enthusiastic. Our properties weren’t the biggest sales you’ve had, but you acted like they were. there isn’t any more a person could ask of a realtor.|
Everything I Touch, Turns To SOLD!
