Mr. & Mrs. Buchanan
When we first worked with Dori relocating from the UK to the US, we recognized early her dedication to helping families. Her passion and commitment to service is why we chose to work with her again on our new home purchase. It was a pleasure having Dori as our agent.
Lindsey & Kevin Brock
Dori has been an absolute pleasure to work with! We were referred via friends who have used Dori for both a home sale and purchase. We had begun our home search with a local Realtor who was familiar with our desired neighborhood and that turned into a waste of 6 months. After switching to Dori, we realized what a Realtor was supposed to do. She was eager to help us in finding our first home. We were (and still are!) totally green and didn’t know the first thing about finding a home. We had a pretty specific wish list that was difficult to fulfill, but Dori was always optimistic that our home would be out there. She never made us feel as though we needed to come up with more money or sacrifice on the important things. She was always very upfront about her thoughts on a property and we felt very comfortable that she was looking out for our best interests. We never felt pressured to make a decision. The most impressive thing about Dori is her communication skills and her speed.
The MacDonald Family
In the age of over promises and under delivery, Dori proved to be a dependable professional. She did exactly what she promised and more. Thank you Dori for helping us find a home quickly when relocating back to Huntington Beach. You are passionate about your work and committed to helping families.
The Kokot Family
We felt totally secure in trusting Dori with the sell of our home. She maintained her integrity throughout the entire process. And thank you so much Dori for helping us to find our new home. You can count on us referring our family and friends to you.

Dori has been great to work with over the years. Before helping us with the purchase of our current home in Huntington Beach, Dori assisted us with a temporary rental while we relocated back to Huntington Beach. She is a hard-working professional who enjoys helping families.
Dori Kay is the most committed agent I have ever dealt with...she went above and beyond to help me list and sell a property in California while we lived out of state. She is a very devoted person to her profession. I and my wife highly recommend her when it comes to trying to buy or sell your property.
Dori helped me find my apartment in Huntington Beach when I first moved to California from the UK. I remember that Dori worked on some paperwork for me late in to the night on a weekend, to make sure it was ready and I got the apartment I wanted.
She later helped me buy a new home in Rancho Santa Margarita for my new wife Nikki and I …a place to call home. If you are looking to rent, buy or sell a home, I would recommend Dori’s services. She is a hard-working, knowledgeable professional that is passionate about helping families.
My agent Dori prepared me for what to expect as a first-time home buyer with a low-down payment, looking for a home in a seller's market with low inventory. But to my surprise, we were able find and close escrow on a great 2 bedroom/2 bath condo in my preferred complex, after only submitting two offers. My first offer was accepted as the back up offer, so I credit my success in Dori's expertise to details, expedience, communication, and negotiation skills. I would not hesitate to recommend Dori's professional services to anyone looking to buy a home.
I'm pretty handy when it comes to home maintenance and such, but as a single woman selling my first home after some fourteen years of occupancy, I had concerns repair items showing up in a buyer's inspection. I also wanted to sell my home quickly with the fewest surprises and delays, but still sell at fair market price.
After reviewing my property and listening to my needs, Dori suggested a seller's pre-inspection for big ticket items, and listing the property with a 1-year Home Warranty (which she paid for). She also gave me a list of things to do to show my home at it's best, and helped me stage it. I was ecstatic to be presented with written offers above asking price by the first two buyer prospects that viewed the property. One of the buyer's came from her "coming soon" sign and submitted an offer before hitting the MLS.
Dori's pre-marketing expertise and negotiation skills got my home sold above asking before hitting the MLS, and closed within 30 days. I highly recommend Dori's services.
