Project Description

Dawn Whalen, Owner/Managing Broker

Dawn Whalen became a licensed Realtor in 2006, and obtained her Broker’s license in 2013. Her background includes owning a photography business, where she captured nearly 300 weddings in six years, as well as a multitude of family and senior photos. Prior to her professional photography business, she spent 15 years in the medical field, starting as an assistant to the physicians during patient visits, then a surgery scheduler and finally coordinating coding and billing.

She is passionate about her real estate career, helping people make their next move and making the process as stress free as possible. She prides herself in learning as much as she can about the industry, and takes more continuing education than is required by the state of Indiana and MIBOR. She earned the GRI, Graduate, REALTOR Institute designation, which is considered three years of “grad school” for Realtors. Dawn also earned the CDPE, (Certified Distressed Property Expert) designation, which educated her on helping consumers with short sales.

When she’s not working with client, Dawn enjoys spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She and her husband love to travel, whether it be a cruise or traveling across the country to meet up with family and see a concert. In her spare time, she enjoys reading and, weather permitting, spending time outside.

You can reach Dawn at or 317-459-5182.

Homes for Heroes

What is Homes for Heroes®?

Shortly after 9/11, Homes for Heroes, Inc. was established as a way to give back and say “Thank you” to local heroes for all they do. We provide Hero Rewards®, which is an easy way for heroes to save on a home, and on every day home-related purchases. Our heroes’ jobs are to help others. Ours is, too. With gratitude, we honor the selfless service of true heroes— firefighters, EMS, law enforcement, military (active, reserves and veterans), healthcare professionals, and teachers —by giving back. When a hero buys, sells or refinances a home with Homes for Heroes, they make it possible for us to help more heroes and hero organizations. That’s just like our heroes. Always helping.

Who qualifies as a Hero?

Current and former firefighters, EMS, law enforcement, military (active, reserves and veterans), healthcare professionals and teachers qualify to receive Hero Rewards.
