"First of all, I agree with everything every other reviewer has already written.  Maxine and Michelle are an incredible team who will help you sell the home you love, or find you your dream home.  I have never seen two people work so seamlessly together, always thinking several steps ahead, looking out for you, and working tirelessly to make your dreams come true.  They really cared about us, and it showed in their patience, persistence, and the after-hours phone calls they returned when we were worried. From the moment we called them to say that we wanted to sell our home, to the happy moment after only 6 days on the market that they read us multiple offers, their experience showed.  They have the most unbelievable behind the scenes team of skilled professionals who will make the home you love show brighter than you ever thought possible, they will market your home to bring in the most potential buyers, and they will help you sell quickly at your dream price.  In the end, you will feel so very smart for having chosen them as your realtors.

Thank you Maxine and Michelle for making our dreams come true." -Bill & Nancy Koenig

“Jane and I would like to thank you and your staff for your excellent representation during the selling of our home. I realize we asked a great deal and you came through in every way with flying colors.

Thanks also for making our life considerably easier during this extraordinarily stressful time of not only selling a home but having just two weeks to relocate to San Diego with our 3 year old and newborn daughters. We left the entire preparation and display of our home in your hands and everything to the last detail was handled with knowledge and professionalism I have rarely witnessed. Your guidance and suggestions at every step of the process proved to be right on target. We hoped that the sale of our home would attract multiple offers but the results obtained by you and your staff surpassed all expectations. My only wish is that you were in San Diego to help us buy a home.

I have and will continue to unhesitatingly recommend the services of Dumas & Company and would be honored to serve as a reference for future clients.”

“I have been recommending Maxine Dumas Group to my probate and conservatorship clients for many years.  In working with her, she exhibits optimism, attention to detail, and knowledge that is difficult to find in her profession. She brings to her job mature judgment and a wealth of experience. Not only that, she is fun to work with.

Maxine Dumas is the type of real estate broker that the Public Guardian can be assured to obtain the maximum value out of any residential or commercial property she lists. She has an excellent team who backs her up, and is extremely responsive to telephone calls. I can recommend her without reservation to your office.”

“I want to recommend Maxine Dumas to you with great confidence, as she is a realtor of the highest caliber. Maxine has consistently shown a high level of professionalism, a unique insight during negotiations and a superb attention to detail.

Maxine and I have worked closely on a number of probate sales and her expertise is truly impressive. Her realm of knowledge pertinent to probate sales has been complete and her performance throughout each transaction has been precise and accurate. I have also been impressed by her perseverance when faced with adversity, as it has become clear that the current market is filled with turbulence. She is articulate, intelligent and tough, yet people like her and trust her. I recommend Maxine to you and your clients, as I know that it would be difficult to find a better realtor.”

You were not only a true friend, but cared about me and my mom’s personal welfare in doing what the best was for us under the circumstances the past 6 years.

“No problem was too difficult. The staging and publication was exceptional; and I liked the offers!  Searching for a realtor is not an easy job, yet it is most important when the time comes to sell your home. We had lived in our home for 60 Years, and thought of it as one of our family. When the time came to move I certainly felt as if I was losing a friend, and then I found Maxine and Michelle. They understood my feelings, and did everything possible to make the transaction painless. From describing how they would present the house on the internet, to arranging the exterior and gardens, to coordinating donations and disposing of 60 years of junk, to staging my house (I almost did not want to sell after they staged it), to analyzing the market for establishing  the selling price, and finally to recommend the offers —they were good. The ‘they’ are Maxine and Michelle; when you commission Dumas to sell your home, you get a ‘twofer’; two brains are twice as good as one, and they are a great team, handling any problems in a most efficient manner. -Fred Offenbach
