My passion for homes started many years ago growing up in Arcadia – surrounded by gracious houses, spacious lawns, and a welcoming neighborhood community. 

After graduating from Cal Poly, I started a career in fashion working for St. John Knits as an account manager—managing accounts with sales in excess of $100 million for Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and St. John Specialty boutiques. Upon relocating to Pasadena, I continued my career working for the exclusive showroom Fragments, as the top Salesperson generating business through building relationships with industry buyers, and implementing strategic marketing plans and budgets. These experiences have translated extremely well to my Real Estate practice.

The San Gabriel valley is where my husband and I grew up and we wanted to raise our two children here surrounded by its rich heritage, culture, art museums and mountains. Raising my two daughters became my top priority and once they started grammar school, I decided to pursue a career that would allow me to indulge in my love of architectural homes and helping people realize their dreams. 

I am a member of The Friends of Foothill Family Services, Urban Compass Guild, St. Philips the Apostle Church, and on the Parent board at my children's school and a member of the Pasadena Foothills Association of Realtors.

Reviews

I just want to thank Rene for being the most attentive and kind agent. There is not a week that goes by that I do not think about how amazing she is for having found the perfect home for my son, our dog and me! I knew Rene from Pasadena, but had relocated to the East Coast. I had to move home to Pasadena on very short notice. I phoned Rene to let her know my details. Even though I had had bad luck looking myself, she reassured me that she would find something. “It will all work out.” She said. When I got back on a Sunday, Rene went to her morning meeting at the office on Monday to tell them my story and my needs. Tuesday, my landlord approached her agent, who happened to work in Rene’s office, wanting to list her home for lease. Rene figured it all out!!! This was the perfect match! We now live just five blocks from my son’s school! We have a lovely home with friendly neighbors. I know that when the time is right, I will be asking Rene for help with finding my next new home. She is an incredible person who will put her whole heart into finding the right home for you. It was a pleasure working together with Rene. It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking for a palace or a studio apartment, Rene treats you with the best care.

Buying a house in the SoCal market is not at all like buying a house in other places we have moved- it’s so competitive. We felt very lucky to have found Rene to guide us through the process. We will definitely work with Rene for any future real estate needs. Rene paid attention to the details of our specifics. My wife wanted a pool and I wanted a workshop. We finally got both!

Working with Rene to sell our house and purchase our new home was seamless. Rene worked tirelessly, was creative and went above and beyond to sell our home in Altadena. Purchasing our new home in Pasadena during the same time period was fun and exciting because everything moved along smoothly. Rene was professional and kept us informed every step of the way. If there was ever a bump in the road, Rene brought her expterese and positive can do attitude to get the job done.

I would highly recommend Rene Dolan to anyone who needs a kind, considerate, and professional Realtor. She helped us find the perfect house and was with us every step of the way. I could not imagine using anyone else as my realtor.
