Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Traverse City, MI.
I have engaged Dean in two transactions over the years and also engaged him for help when we didn't end up with a transaction. Dean was always willing to help even when he suspected that a sale wasn't likely. Dean was especially helpful when we sold our home after we had moved out of the area. He helped with suggestions on how to prepare the house for sale and also helped arrange contractors. You can't go wrong with Dean. His calm, professional demeanor helped us manage through these important real estate transactions.

Dean is very honest and hard working. He was never to busy to talk or meet with you. He never gave the impression he was wasting his time and was very flexible when it came to showing houses. We moved from down state and he was very easy to work with.
Sold a home in 2013 in Cherry Bend, Garfield Township, MI 49684.
We decided to downsize from our house to a condo and we wanted to be moved before winter. Dean sold our house 8 days after listing! He found a condo for us that is everything we wanted! The whole process from listing to closing on the house and the condo purchase was completed within 6 weeks! Dean is the consummate professional! He is honest, efficient, available, patient, personable, a great negotiator and just an all around great real estate agent. We would highly recommend him to anyone!

I've known Dean for a lot of years and he was the first agent we called when we were ready to sell our house. He's an honest, caring and reliable person. He did an excellent job!
Dean showed up at our first meeting with all the local comps on the market that were recently sold or currently for sale. There were several that were a great help in determining what our listing price should be.
He had some great suggestions on what to do and not to do in preparing or house for sale., and was open to what we thought needed to happen as well.
We were given his cell phone number in case we needed to talk to him, and he always got back to us the same day if we sent him a text or left a VM.
When we finally had an offer from a prospective buyer; Dean was right there with suggestions and guidance on making a counter offer. He came with counter offers already prepared and was able to explain to us why his logic behind them. He truly understood our situation, why we were selling, and what our expectations were.
In the end, our house sold with satisfaction of all our expectations!

We have worked with Dean Baker over a period of 10 years. He has helped us both as a buyer and seller. He was always professional, prompt in answering questions. He also has the patience to work with you until the purchase or sale is complete. We appreciated the fact that he does not pressure even though we were clients that took our time to find the right place for us.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Lake Ann, MI.
My family moved from Wisconsin to the Traverse City area. We started working with Dean from Wisconsin. He listened attentively to what we wanted in a home. From this information Dean compiled a list of homes that we would visit. It only took one day to find a house that we could call home. Dean is highly professional and very personable. He is a man of integrity. So, I highly recommend Dean as a real estate agent that will work hard for you and that you can trust.
We had been considering buying for 4 years and we would call Dean periodically with questions, he was so patient! We finally took a "leap of faith" and of course, our dream home was a "problem child". We were so thankful Dean was our agent! It really pays to have an agent that is dedicated to you and has the knowledge and professionalism to complete the sale! We highly recommend Dean Baker Real Estate Professional!!
