Dawn Pier’s career in real estate began in 2012, when ex pat friends and neighbors began asking her for assistance with Spanish translation. Since then she’s become a dedicated senior advisor at Engel & Völkers Snell Real Estate and an Engel & Völkers’ Onyx Elite Advisor, ranking in the top five for Gross Commission Income and second for Number of Sales (Sides) in 2020. She was also nominated among five other of her EVSRE colleagues for the Excellence in Service award in 2020 and carries the distinction of holding the Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) designation under the National Association of Realtors® and has been an active member of the National Association of Realtors (AMPI) since 2014.
Dawn’s journey from eastern Canada to Baja California Sur began in 2001, when she visited the East Cape and Los Cabos for the first time. Invited to return to the tiny off-grid village of Cabo Pulmo to head up a conservation project to protect the coral reef in Cabo Pulmo National Park (CPNP), Dawn moved to Baja in 2002 to found a community organization, Amigos para la Conservacion de Cabo Pulmo, A.C. (Friends for the Conservation of Cabo Pulmo) and follow her dream to learn to surf. Thanks to their combined efforts, in 2012 the park was declared the most successful marine park in the world, when scientists discovered fish abundance had increased 463% since 2003. After nearly two decades living here, Dawn’s an expert on the East Cape, but she is also knowledgeable about key developments in San Jose del Cabo, where our headquarters is located, in particular Palmilla, Querencia, and Puerto Los Cabos.
In her previous life, Dawn worked as a research scientist and did field work at military radar stations spanning the Canadian arctic where she studied the uptake of contaminants by plants. She holds a Masters degree in Science (Biology) from one of Canada’s top universities, Queen’s University in Kingston Ontario.
