dawn_stoneREALTOR®, Closing Coordinator 

Dawn Stone

Owning my own business was never my intention when I decided to go to school to get my real estate license. I had no plan of what I was going to do with my real estate license but I knew I had to have it if I was going to ever pursue a career in real estate. I was contacted by a local woman who had a property management company, and she asked me if I would consider purchasing her business. I prayed about it, knew it was what God wanted me to do, and took that leap of faith!
I love helping people get to the next point in their life. We are all in different seasons of life, and where you live is one of the biggest decisions that most people can make. It is important that you feel at home wherever you are. I am grateful that God has given me the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. He uses A New Dawn Realty to help the people we come into contact with.

I have 2 awesome children. My son, Phillip, is my partner at A New Dawn Realty. My daughter, Heather is a nurse, and we are great friends. My son married a wonderful girl, Casey. They have two children, Savanna and Carter, who are the loves of my life.

I so enjoy doing anything that is outside. It is hard for me to stay inside on pretty days. I love my church family at Ellisboro Baptist Church. I am blessed to be surrounded with many good friends.

My mission for A New Dawn Realty is to help people get home.

Phillip Stone

I received my NC real estate license in March of 2003 and worked as my mother’s licensed assistant for roughly four years. In 2007, we made the decision that I needed to be an independent broker under the firm’s umbrella. Armed with all the knowledge and experience I gained during those previous four years, I flourished in my new adventure. Since that time, I have had the opportunity to complete more than 300 real estate transactions. I have learned valuable skill sets and tools from my experience with guiding many clients through the exciting and interesting world of real estate.

I am very blessed to have a wonderful family. My wife and I met through our jobs in real estate. We have two children, Savannah and Carter. They are the lights in our life.

Kris Cayton

I am a North Carolina native. My wife, Tauri, and I moved around a bit before eventually purchasing my childhood home in Madison. We are the proud parents of two wonderful children.

I grew up in the real estate business and officially become a Realtor® in 2004. My parents were involved with real estate transactions throughout the entire state of NC. One of my earliest memories is of riding with my dad to Oak Island so that he could complete repairs on a rental house and returning home that evening so that he could be at work the next day. This experience gave me an appreciation for hard work.

I did not initially plan to pursue a career in real estate. One day I received a catalog for Guilford County Technical college. I noticed that a real estate class was being offered at night, and I thought that this might be a way to gain some additional knowledge that would help my parents with their own real estate endeavors. Little did I know how much I would eventually end up enjoying the real estate world!

I spent several years driving a commercial vehicle during the day, while showing and selling real estate in the evening. In July of 2016, I finally took a leap of faith and started my full-time, real estate career. I discovered how much I love helping families fulfill their dreams of home ownership.

In my free time, I enjoy attending softball games with my daughter Abby and 4-H shooting sports tournaments with my oldest daughter Chloe. We attend Ellisboro Baptist Church in Madison.

I have been a REALTOR for 17 years, assisting buyers and sellers in the Piedmont Triad. Real Estate is both fascinating and fulfilling in many different area’s most importantly in helping people and families. I view every property and situation as being as unique as the clients that I serve, you will never be treated as a number, and your expectations will always be vital and foremost in all of our endeavors.

Janet Sullivan

I received my NC real estate license in November of 2017 while working as the office manager for A New Dawn Realty during 2016.
I have recently moved back from living in Shallotte for the past 17 years and am delighted to be back in my hometown and working with friends and what I consider “family.” I love being a part of such a smart, successful and supportive group.
I’ve always enjoyed helping people and now I have an opportunity to guide and help them in achieving their goals through the challenging but rewarding world of real estate.

In my free time, I enjoy listening to music and singing occasionally, watching my favorite shows and movies, and also love flowers and nature.
I am blessed with a beautiful family and love visiting my friends at the beach when I can.

Brooklyn Lawson

On March 2019 it was my pleasure to join A New Dawn Realty as a REALTOR®. I was born and raised in Stokesdale, NC and attended Northwest Guilford High School and then Sandhills Community College in Southern Pines, NC. I have spent a good part of my life in the surrounding area. When I moved back from college I worked for my family’s business’ Treeline Landscaping and Nursery, Inc. for 10 years and Spring Garden Storage for 4 years as the office manager. Before joining A New Dawn Realty I spent several years in the mortgage industry.

I have two children: my son, Brooks is in middle school and my daughter, Braelyn is in elementary school. My life consist of sports (my kids) and going to the beach. 

I have always loved some part of Real Estate from the structural design to the interior design.

Working with people and helping my client’s find a forever home is an amazing thing and I love it!!

Candy Priddy

I have always had a love for old houses, and my family encouraged me to pursue my love of houses by getting my real estate license. I reached my goal in 2019 and became a licensed real estate broker. I became part of the team at A New Dawn Realty in 2020, and I am so thankful for the opportunity to serve in the community that I have always called home. The path to home ownership can be challenging, and I am excited to help guide my clients through the journey. I will do my best to help them find that special place that they can call home. 

God has blessed me with a wonderful family. My husband and I have three children. We began our journey as grandparents in December of 2019, with the birth of our grandson. We are looking forward to many more in the future. 

Christy Locklear

In June 2020 I made the decision to join the team at A New Dawn Realty! I have been licensed since September 2019, but my love and passion for real estate began long before that. I have always followed the market, been the go to friend to tell you what to do to get your home ready to sell and dreamed of the day that I could follow my dream and become an agent! 

My heart has always been to help others and to make things pretty. I have been a nurse since I was 19 years old and helped my husband with his landscaping business for the past 6 years. 

I am married to my high school sweetheart and the love of my life, Paul. Together we have 2 boys: Jordon is in college at GTCC and will soon be at UNCW……go Seahawks! Brendon attends high school at Bethany Community School. We also have 2 of the cutest Boxer dogs ever: Presley and Gracelyn……if you can’t tell by their names I am obsessed with ELVIS! 

Building relationships while helping my clients achieve their real estate dreams is what it is all about!
