I came across Dada when I was in the market to buy my first house a couple of years ago.

She only showed me houses that were within my budget, she successfully helped negotiate the price down, and she is so knowledgeable. I trusted her completely and didn't second guess any advice or suggestions she would give me. She made the home buying process so smooth; as a first time homebuyer there were a lot of things I was unaware of but Dada was there for me every step of the way. A special bonus is that her husband is a lender. This made the home buying process even smoother. She knew exactly what my buying limit was, and we were able to communicate with the lender with various items quickly because of this connection. I was able to secure a very competitive rate through her husband! Dada truly cares about her clients. A few months after I bought my house, she sent a tin of cookies during Christmas time along with a card. It's attention to detail like this that you don't see often anymore, and it truly means a lot. Dada was so great that I contacted her again when I sold my house a few months ago. Being a single homeowner, I had a smaller house. But with how Dada treated me you would have thought my house was worth 10 times as much as it was. I have no doubt she would treat her clients with the same attention to detail and services offered whether their house is selling for 100k or 1 million. I was just as pleased with the selling end of things as I was with buying through Dada. I will absolutely continue to use her services as long as she is in real estate!One last point, my parents had listed their house and were having trouble selling it. The house sat on the market for 7 months when I encouraged them to reach out to Dada for assistance. Within a month of Dada taking over, my parents had multiple offers and they were able to sell their house. Dada is the best out there!


I can't say enough about Dada McGlynn.

When we were trying to sell our previous home by owner (which we've done before), she brought potential buyers and never made us feel inadequate. She showed our home with enthusiasm and nearly had it sold before an injury to one of our children led us to postpone the sale. She put us in touch with a great mortgage person that was top-notch in handling all details once we were ready to move. The respect and professionalism Dada showed made her the clear person to call. She knows her stuff and is so personable. We purposely didn't rely on our realtor friends as we have several and didn't want to offend anyone. Although she began outside of our circle, Dada quickly became a trusted friend. We will definitely call her again!


Dada was amazing!

She guided us through the selling of our beloved home. The process was flawless. We sold the house on the first day for more than we were asking! I would highly recommend her!

Dada took the time to plan and show me 5 neighborhoods on one Saturday afternoon.

She made my first home buying experience easy and stress free. Dad lays out what is expected so that you are ready for this huge accomplishment.


In the process of working with Dada McGlynn as a realtor, I have found her to be exceptionally helpful.

She showed me numerous office suites meeting my needs when we began, and she was very helpful with banking contacts for the mortgage, and in furnishing and painting the office suite I bought. She has also been instrumental in helping direct prospective clients who have rented office space in the office suite I purchased. I wholeheartedly recommend Dada McGlynn as a realtor.


Dada was an absolute dream to work with in the recent purchase of our home.

As first time buyers, navigating the local market was confusing and intimidating, but Dada made everything easy and helped us with all aspects of the home buying process from her direct real estate duties to helping us secure financing, appraisals, inspections, and other services. Dada is professional, incredibly dedicated to her work, and exceptional at making buyers feel comfortable and knowledgeable. She is compassionate and kind, and was fierce for us when or first potential lender strung us along and ultimately didn't work out. When this happened, she was able to find us a new lender and close on our home in less than 3 weeks, all so we wouldn't end up homeless in the new year. We already know if we ever sell this house who we will go to for help--Dada is really all we could have hoped for in our real estate agent!!


Dada is a real pro.

Her pricing of our home was right on the money, and we had two full-price offers on the first day of showing. She guided us expertly through the closing process. My only regret is I can’t take her with me to stage my new home.


Dada and her team were truly helpful in the entire buying experience.

Dada was very responsive, answering all our queries and ensuring the process ran smoothly by facilitating the conversation between all involved parties and making sure all tasks were completed in a timely manner. She made time for us, to be present in person or over the phone, whenever we requested. She was highly involved throughout the whole process, offering her extensive knowledge and helping negotiate deals. We were impressed by her excellent work ethic and commitment to help her clients. Highly recommend!

Dada is very easy to work with when I was selling my mother's estate home.

She is knowledgeable, personal, has the best interest of the client, and her recommendations are spot on. She responds to inquiries immediately and worked very well with the buyer's agent. We had a little delay in closing because of probate court, but Dada managed it perfectly and professionally. I am thankful for our pastors recommending Dada to us and I fully recommend her to anyone who is need of buying or selling a home. You will not be disappointed! She goes above and beyond!


Dada McGlynn is an excellent realtor and we loved working with her.

She has an optimistic, can-do attitude and helped me relax about the sale of our home. When the buyers requested a radon test and it came back higher than allowed for, she quickly connected us with a company that specializes in radon mitigation and we were able to install a system very quickly. She was always "Johnny on the spot" and would come by if I needed her to look at something in the house or I needed her advice about something related to the sale. She is very friendly and was always responsive and super helpful. We were very impressed with her knowledge and expertise and would gladly recommend her and her team to anyone who needs a realtor.


Dada has been a tremendous help in my first home purchase.

I felt very comfortable working with her throughout the process. I was impressed with how much she truly cared in making sure my first home purchase was the one that I really wanted. She is very informative, up-to-date, and honest. I would work with her again and highly recommend her.

Very helpful in a long distance purchase we were 15 hour drive away keep us informed on each step of the process and dealing.

Helped make sure all little things were taken care of and dealt with . Would definatly use her again for another purchase or sale.


Dada was my realtor three times in GNV, Fl - 1 as buyer & 2 as seller.

Although these transactions were more complex (a short sale rental and a bank foreclosed property), Dada impressively handled all the challenges involved (not to mention an uncooperative tenant). She made each transaction easy and smooth sailing for us, ironing all details, changes and working with us to achieve what we wanted. She's truly a friend and a professional advocate whichever side of the spectrum you may be.

Dada was amazing.

A true professional, a go getter and miracle worker. She worked with us and found solutions to issues we were confronted with with grace and a positive outlook. She’s result oriented and listened to our needs as well as gave caring advice. Goes above and beyond every step of the way. I will recommend and would even do business with her again if she ever wanted to do some work in Washington State! Thank you.

I have Known Dada McGlynn for over 10 years.

She helped me buy my first home in Gainesville and later to sell it and buy my second/forever home (family increased and needed more room). She is proactive, experienced, very knowledgeable, always available to answer questions, understands the market, and always looking for the best option for you (especially when you introduce a budget you don't want to exceed). Her negotiations skills are very impressive. She is our to go realtor here in Gainesville.


This is the second time we have hired Dada to buy a home.

Both times involved building a home. Her knowledge and experience was a huge help through the process. She was able to help us customize a building plan that met our needs and budget.She also advised us how we could minimize our initial property taxes, helping us save more money during the first year. Buying and building a home is typically a stressful time. Dada was always there to help us through it. If we ever have to sell/buy a home again, we would definitely hire her again.

My wife and I have used Dada to buy two houses and sell one house.

Dada is hands down the best realtor we have ever worked with. When we thought it was going to be impossible to find a house last year, Dada made it happen.


I'm excited to write this review as today we closed on our new house with assistance from the one and only Dada.

What can I say about this incredible human being - she is extremely knowledgeable, respectful and patient. Dada provided excellent communication, expertise, wisdom and guidance along every step of our home search and purchase process. She was always responsive to our changing needs, likes and dislikes. Moreover, when it came to finding our house, she gave us the correct guidance to stick out from other buyers and win out the offer battle. I know exactly who to look to whenever we consider buying again or when a family member or friend is ready to find their home!


As buyers from another state, we were unfamiliar with the Gainesville housing market.

We found a house through the seller's agent and Dada was recommended to us. She immediately reached out to us as did her assistant, Jon. We had agreed to a 30-day close and were in constant contact with both Dada and Jon during that month-long escrow period. Our purchase was part of a Reverse 1031 Exchange which involved much more than a traditional purchase. Dada put us in touch with an experienced Escrow Agent who handled the Close with ease. In addition, she made herself available to help us with the inspections of the home including meeting with the pest control people, managing contractors who were performing repairs and putting us in touch with an insurance agent. It became obvious very quickly that these various service people respect Dada and her team and we benefitted greatly from those relationships. I cannot believe how fortunate we were to find Dada McGlynn and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone needing an experienced and well-respected professional. Well done, Dada!


Dada has been a wonderful source of knowledge and expertise.

The whole process of owning the house was less stressful because of her. She was quick to respond to all my questions and concerns. Highly recommend getting her service if you plan to buy a house :-)


Excellent work by Dada and Terri.

Both were spectacular! Never had better real estate agents.. Terri did lots of research finding neighboring bike lanes/trails which was an important criteria for our search. She also tracked down the Declarations and other condo papers that seemingly did not exist. Both were jut great.

James Borchert

She was very professional and friendly.

She had great ideas on how to set up the house for the professional pictures. She also got us what we were asking for compared to two other realtors. I would use her again when selling or buying a house.


The whole buying process with Dada was stress free and very straightforward.

As travel nurses on an out of state assignment, we were remotely communicating with her and any property that we were interested in she'd waste no time and dart to it, advising us to possibly make an offer to have the best chance in this crazy quick market. She has all the right knowlege, skills, experience, and the passion to get you your dream home. She is such a pleasant person to work with, she was recommended by our friends and we will recommend her to anyone looking for a home. Give her a holler and you won't regret one bit.



McGlynn is state of the art when it comes to the use of technology to sell a home. Customer service is a priority and she has staff that help fulfill that obligation. She's easy to work with, responsive, personable, patient, knowledgeable and efficient. I'd "hire" her again in a heartbeat and have already referred potential customers to her. Five star all the way.


From moment I emailed her to express my interest in the house to the day of closing, Dada was there every step of the way!

She was outstanding - very knowledgeable, personable, thorough, and honest. Introduced me to the best team that took care of my finances/title and even recommended a great handyman. She is attentive to detail and caught typo in closing contract. I would definitely recommend her to anyone that wants a caring person to help them find a house - she’s simply the best realtor in Gainesville! Thank you Dada for making my 1st house purchase such a pleasant experience!

Marjan Rabbani

Dada was a great help to me in selling my home.

My home had some challenges both in the marketing and in the sale and we definitely had to navigate some issues and even had a contract fall through. But through it all, I never felt like Dada didn't have my back and in the end, I got my house sold. I would definitely recommend Dada to anyone wanting to sell their home.


Dada was very helpful in finding us are dream home.

She is vey knowledgeable with real estate market. Responds to your calls and questions immediately or as soon as she can. I will surely recommend her to help you find your dream home as well!


Dada is very easy to deal with and made sure the homebuying experience goes on smoothly.

She is very flexible and always try to accomodate any requests that we have.


Dada and her staff were exceptionally helpful in the whole buying experience.

She provided names of reliable businesses that could help ready the property for our eventual move in. Above all, she was always cheerful and professional in every part of our interactions. I have moved nearly a dozen times in my adult life; Dada and the Sunshine Team rank as the best I have encountered.


We put our house on the market and a did not budge for 6 solid months.

The day that Dada Mcglyn became our realtor, within 24 hours she had a buyer. My wife and I have never seen such diligence and expeditious marketing for a house to be sold like we experienced with Dada. Truly Unbelievable!!
