An alumna of The University of Texas, Dawna began her business and real estate career in Austin. Her extensive real estate background began with being a commercial and residential real estate appraiser.

In 1994, Dawna joined Amelia Bullock Realtors where she established herself as a broker associate with a strong reputation as a relocation specialist for both buyers and sellers. She became known as a reliable and resourceful professional with valuable contacts throughout Austin's business and financial communities. Her relocation experience led her to be a preferred broker for several high-tech companies, including an international group who moved their corporate headquarters to Austin from the West Coast. In 2014, Amelia Bullock Realtors sold to Kuper Sotheby's International Realty and this is now where you will find Dawna continuing to help past and current clients with all aspects of real estate.

Client Testimonials

Dawna did an outstanding job in the search for our Austin home. Dawna knew the market comprehensively, was on top of trends, and was aware of listings that had yet to hit MLS. She was insightful, thorough, fair, and loyal. Dawna was always willing to go the extra mile for us, cheerfully, through the entire process all the way through the close date. I would recommend Dawna to anyone looking for a home in Austin.
- Tom and Barbara V.
We enjoyed working with Dawna in our relocation to Austin. She worked hard to find areas and homes that met our needs. Dawna organized our house-hunting weekend to be very efficient - allowing us to see many homes in a short period of time. As a result, we found the house and neighborhood that met our needs and desires. She assisted with the inspections and guided us smoothly through the house-buying process. We found the perfect home for our growing family and would recommend Dawna to others knowing she would work hard to provide the same results for them as well.

“When I mentioned to Barbara Wallace that my wife and I were thinking of buying in the West Austin area, she suggested we meet with Dawna Cekuta. From the moment we met, Dawna was an absolute delight to work with. She is smart, highly professional and knows the market as well as anyone. Her guidance, understanding and expertise would prove invaluable as we worked our way through an extensive search for our new home. Dawna is well respected and well connected. In our case, those connections would prove critical, providing access to several properties that were not publicly listed. In fact, while we were in the middle of negotiations on one home, Dawna received a late evening phone call informing her that the house my wife and I really wanted, was about to be available. Dawna worked with us late into the night, discussing options, valuations, and strategies, as she worked to prepare an offer, which was accepted the very next morning. Dawna’s experience as an appraiser and in-depth knowledge of Austin neighborhoods gives her a unique perspective and a deep understanding of value. That understanding made it possible for us to move very quickly and confidently when the right opportunity presented itself. If you are considering the Austin market, we highly recommend Dawna Cekuta. She is honest, fair and a highly skilled negotiator. You simply will not find a more knowledgeable and thorough real estate professional.”

“Dawna has been a great partner to my wife and I over the course of the last 10 years. During that time she helped us buy and sell our first home in Austin - and sold it in 1 week! She was instrumental in helping us upgrade into a bigger home in Austin as we settled in and our family grew. After we moved to Arizona, she helped us sell our home in Austin as well! In addition to being a great realtor, she has become a trusted friend and advisor.We rented our home in Austin for 2 years during the challenging real estate market of 2010-2012. Dawna was kind enough to introduce us to property managers, recommend handymen, and generally just do what friends and neighbors do. Her going above and beyond has been greatly appreciated over the years.We have and will continue to recommend Dawna to our friends and family, and she has over the years helped a few of them as well! She is an extraordinarily helpful partner through what can be a challenging and emotional time of selling or buying a home.”

“My wife Linda and I moved to Austin from Chicago in 2004 and really knew nothing about the housing market nor the desirable places to live. My employer, Dell Inc., put us in contact with Dawna Cekuta. Dawna had been tapped by Dell as a preferred supplier of services for executive relocations to the Austin area.Thus, the relationship began. Dawna provided us personalized service that resulted in us finding a perfect home in the perfect area. She demonstrated exceptional listening skills by adjusting the types of homes and areas she exposed us to based on feedback we provided her after showings. This allowed her and us to narrow our search such that we were very quickly only seeing great properties, allowing us to just choose our favorite. Our friends and family raved about the final selection and we were most happy. We moved away from Austin for a few years, but there was no doubt in our minds whom we would call when we returned...Dawna knew us and was more a friend to us than our realtor! She again proved herself as someone special when she found us our current home, where we intend to retire. Our daughter and son-in-law moved from Chicago to Austin, and of course, Dawna was chosen to be their realtor to find them a property they just love. When it comes to personalized professional service in Austin’s real estate market, Dawna Cekuta is whom we recommend...she’s the best!”
