I can’t recommend Dawn and her team enough. If you are looking for a true professional who understands the market, is in touch with buyers, and will offer great advice- look no further. Dawn made the difficult process of selling our family home enjoyable and far less stressful than it could have been. I really valued the communication- updates after every showing, feedback from buyer agents and broker opens. Her insights allowed us to navigate the market and have a very successful sale. I would never work with anyone else!

Dawn Baltar is a Real Estate Rock Star! We had the great pleasure to work with Dawn in the last half of 2019. We had been trying to sell a house in Fair Oaks, with the challenges of a sluggish market and a moderately challenging location. After an unsuccessful listing with another agent, we switched over to Dawn and her team. While the market was still challenging the differences were remarkable. First, we worked with Dawn on some affordable aesthetic changes that gave the house a more modern feel. She also helped us to understand more clearly what types of things we needed to put in our disclosures. Dawn then priced the house in line with the market. But the biggest difference was in activity. Dawn is relentless; she will not rest until your house is sold. Through open houses, and her savvy use of social media, we had constant and continual showings. Dawn would always follow up with the buyer’s agents after any showing to get feedback, and thereafter if there was still potential interest. When we eventually did receive an offer on the house, Dawn circled back with an earlier prospective buyer who had shown interest, and she was able to drive a much more solid offer scenario with a competing offer. Dawn and her team are great to work with. They are super pleasant and very professional (and there is always someone on her team present for any showing). She also has a “guy/gal” for anything you might need. Strengths: • Super responsive; excellent communication • Knows the market • Relentless pursuit of activity/showings for your home • Experienced and knowledgeable Realtor with sage advice • Strong negotiation skills • She and her team are great people and enjoyable to work with

I had an outstanding experience purchasing my home through the Baltar Group. Dawn is an amazing realtor, and even with the long distance between us at the time, she communicated and shared information with me consistently. When I changed my mind during the process, as to what type of home I wanted, she quickly shifted gears to find me my forever home. I am very grateful for her assistance and extremely happy in my new home.

Dawn was AMAZING!! She was professional, organized and always looking out for our best interest! I feel so blessed to have had her part of our moving experience! I would definitely refer Dawn to my family and friends! THANK YOU DAWN!

Prior to working with Dawn and Manny our house was on the market for 60 days. When Dawn took the listing we had multiple offers within days. Our pictures were incredible. They are a fabulous team.


I purchased my home with the Cazares Baltar team in May 2015 in Folsom, CA. It was a very competitive environment at that time and they were very professional, knowledgeable, ethical and handled this transaction with a high level of competence. I would HIGHLY recommend using them for all your real estate needs!

Dawn and Manny are fantastic realtors! They sold my home for me and made it a great experience! I would highly recommend them to anyone needing to sell or buy a home!

Thanks, Carrie

Dawn & Manny represented the sellers of the home my wife and I bought as our first home purchase. As a licensed mortgage originator and real estate agent in CA, I can tell you that their level of professionalism is second to none. It was obvious that they have been through numerous real estate transactions as they were able to communicate effectively and anticipate every step of the negotiation, while at the same time making both the sellers and us, the buyers, feel completely at ease. They surround themselves with an outstanding network of professionals in the industry that allow them to offer the full package. Thank you Dawn & Manny for making our real estate transaction as smooth as it could possibly be! You can’t go wrong when selling or buying with the Cazares-Baltar Team!


Manny and Dawn were the selling agents for our Hillcrest home in Folsom, Ca that closed in January, 2017. They are extremely professional and provided excellent service. They provided quality brochures featuring professional photography, marketed our home locally and in the Bay Area and Northern California using digital and printed materials. Their wealth of knowledge, their contacts within the industry and their resourcefulness made all of the difference. When issues arose with the buyer about needed repairs, Manny and Dawn were there to represent us and sought and obtained the best result for us. With their help we not only sold our high end home, we were able to get the price we wanted. We highly recommend them.

This is a great team! I’d recommend them to anyone. My family has used Manny for around 20 years, and his service has only gotten better! We looked at a lot of houses and finally got a “long shot” sent to us by Dawn and it turned out to be perfect! They had such a client base, we never even listed our house!

Matt and Hillary

They did exactly what they said they would do, sale our home..the best ever.
I will refer them to all of our friends..we couldn’t be happier with their service an friendship that we developed.

Dawn and Manny are the best. When we purchased our home the last thing you need to be concerned with are the details and with Dawn and Manny you don’t have to deal with the added stress of the details. They hold your hand every step of the way.
The only mistake you can make when choosing  a broker is not using Dawn and Manny!!!!

Manny and Dawn were fantastic in the sale of our home. We could tell they had a TON of experience in the industry. They took care of the little details and respected our schedule during open houses and showings. They navigated us through a tough negotiation process and were creative about making   sure everyone walked away happy
Adam & Gabby


Absolutely the best buying experience and I used to be a property investor. The process was smooth and pleasant. They actually listen to your needs so there is no wasting time and energy. Thanks again for all your hard work!

Thanks again,

Both Dawn and Manny went above and beyond your “typical” agent’s job with our home listing and sale. They worked diligently throughout the entire process and their communication skills were excellent. They always kept us informed of any changes or updates and were always patient with the many questions we had during the process.

I highly recommend Cazares & Baltar to anyone requiring an agent with the sale of their home. I am sure they are just as great with their buyers, too!

Thanks so much Manny and Dawn!!


Manny and Dawn exceeded all our expectations. They marketed our home expertly and we were thrilled with the way it was listed. Showings were done by appointment over (no open house, thank goodness!) and were bunched together to generate interest. We ended up with two offers over asking. We were so pleased with the deal Manny negotiated! I have to say, however, what impressed me most was Manny’s handling of the process after the deal was accepted. My husband and I are busy people and Manny ensured that we both understood everything that was happening with inspections, etc. and that nothing fell through the cracks. Manny and Dawn were just exceptionally professional, responsive and thorough. I recommend this team without hesitation.


Dawn Balter is top notch. Her ability to negotiate with all types of personalities is definitely her strong point and why you should hire her as your Realtor. She has her clients best interest at heart and supports you every step of the way. I could not have survived the process of selling my house without her experience, compassion, and integrity.

Her partner, Manny, is a great compliment to Dawn. His ability to stage my home and help me prep it for sale, definitely helped me get top dollar. Their partnership is invaluable and professional every step of the way. Hire them today to sell your home or help you find the perfect new one for you.


Outstanding professional service – good marketing. Very organized and professional at each point of the transaction. I would highly recommend Dawn and Manny


This is the second time I have had Dawn Baltar as my Realtor, the first time was to buy the house we were living in and the second as the agent team to sell my house. In both cases, Dawn was extremely professional, experienced, knew exactly what needed to be done and kept us in the loop the entire time. In selling my home, Dawn and Manny, worked with us smoothly on helping us prepare our home for sale, provided detailed professional estimates on what our house would sell for and worked with us on the entire process from beginning to end.

This was a very time sensitive deal, we purchased another home out of state on a 45 day escrow and I worked with Dawn and Manny to sell my home on a 30 day escrow. It was pretty intense for a while, but the house was priced right, we sold it in 2 days and completed the sale with 6 days to spare.

They worked closely with all Realtors, escrow offices, inspectors and handled the negotiations very well. Dawn and Manny did an outstanding job and made the entire process as smooth as possible. I highly recommend the Cazares and Baltar Team, they are straight forward, honest, extremely knowledgeable and are always in constant communications with their clients. Dawn it was a pleasure to work with you again!


Dawn and Manny did a phenomenal job! Not only were they knowledgeable in all aspects of selling our home, but they understand the emotional process in selling a home and made the process go seamlessly and as painlessly as possible. They are so attentive to each persons situation and really tailor their service to your needs. I cannot speak highly enough of the service and expertise that I received.


If you want to find the perfect home, one that is made just for you..you should hire Dawn Baltar as your realtor. I had an outstanding experience and found the absolute perfect home for me. Dawn spent time getting to know me and what I wanted , then spent time sifting through many homes in the area to narrow the search to that perfect home…yes, home. She handled every detail of the transaction professionally and I could not be more delighted. I would highly recommend her expertise to anyone looking for a new place to call home!

Carole Merchant

Both were extremely knowledgeable regarding the greater Folsom area and recent activity. They set the selling price which we felt was slightly aggressive and we were successful in getting the number.

An early challenge was a neighbor listed and sold their house at a substantially lower /sq. ft. price about a week before ours went up. Dawn was adamant that they left money on the table and convinced us that our selling price was appropriate. Next to the actual sell itself Carol and I were pleased with the constant updates provided and responses to our questions as we moved along.

I should mention that we were out of town during the height of the process but never felt we were out of touch. Highly recommend them especially for anyone in the Folsom or El dorado Hills communities.


Dawn Baltar and Manny Cazares are the most incredible realtors!

My husband and I found the perfect house shortly before Christmas and were in the position of having to sell our existing home very quickly. I contacted Dawn and explained our situation. Within hours action was taking place, our house was put on the market and sold in a matter of a few weeks.

Dawn and Manny worked tirelessly and smoothly to assure an on time sell of our home. Communication with both of them was amazing, and there was never a time we felt left out of the process. They treated my husband and I as if our home was the only one they were selling. Their knowledge of real estate and the market is extremely current which enabled them to sell our home fast.

Dawn and Manny are really good down to earth people who always have their clients best interest in mind. If ever my husband and I have a need to sell or purchase another home Dawn and Manny will be called for another wonderful experience!

Katy Lynch

Manny and Dawn are my Dream Team. As an out of town Seller of a number of properties, I needed (and received) turnkey service, including guidance on pricing, attendance at inspections, management of repairs and frequent communication that minimized my stress. Their knowledge, experience and professionalism are invaluable and I can’t recommend them highly enough!

Paula Berggrenn

I recently had the opportunity to sell my house with the assistance of Dawn and Manny. They were always ready with advice, assistance, and understanding throughout the entire process. The depth and quality of their resources was truly amazing. I especially appreciate their willingness to be available when repairs or inspections needed to be done and thereby making it possible for me not to miss work.

I am very confident that I had the best team available to get the job done. I truly felt they had my best interest in mind. I would definitely use them again and have already recommended them to my friends.

Kristi Cooper

Manny and Dawn were very professional and articulate throughout the process of selling our home.  They are very knowledgeable and were dedicated to meeting our needs and the marketing and presentation of our home that they provided was outstanding.

We would highly recommend Manny and Dawn to anyone looking for a team to work with for their real estate needs, they provided the highest quality of service, commitment and integrity and it was a pleasure working with them.
