Team reviews

We used Dean and Company for both sides of our real estate transaction. We started with Renee who responded very promptly to an email I sent regarding information on a house we were looking for. I sent emails out to several realtors and Renee responded expediently and immediately set up a time to see the house vs. other realtors who took more time and were much more reluctant to spend the time showing homes since they did not know me personally. Renee had absolutely no problem spending the time yet she did not know me personally. We were so impressed with her that we also used her partner Dean Gonzalez to list our house. Pictures taken by their professional photographer were second to none and we sold the house within 5 weeks. Thank you Renee, Dean and team.

Thank you for the review Mark and Lenore! We always appreciate feedback from our clients on how we're doing. Not only were you both kind and sweet to work with, but you knew what you wanted, and were certain of yourselves the whole way through. That made the process easier and more fun for sure! I know I can speak for anyone on our team when I say going to work everyday is so nice because it really doesn't feel like work. Buying a home is typically the largest purchase anyone will make in their life. We assist clients in this process everyday, our clients only make this purchase decision a few times in their lives, so we understand the impact we can make on such an important life decision. We feel blessed with the opportunity to serve wonderful people like you, and we appreciate you taking the time to compliment us. I look forward to our future transactions, and time together as friends :) Thank you, Renee.

Sold a home in 2015 in Highland Lakes, Norland, FL 33179.

I have no words, to express how thankful and grateful I am for Dean and his team. The process of selling a home at this time can be very difficult and stressful but Dean and Kristen made the process so much easier. The professionalism, insight and kindness I experience with Dean put my mind at ease. From beginning to end of selling my home, I was kept informed and learned some helpful information about this process. If I had a question Dean was there with answer. Even when he was away for a short time I never felt alone. I was going through a difficult time during the time of my closing and I so appreciated the time and patience I received from Dean and Kristen. When I am ready to purchase another home, there is no doubt in my mind who I will be calling. Thanks again, for such a great selling experience.

Laurence we really appreciate those kind words! Kristen has been such an awesome part of our team that we start to wonder what we would ever do without her. We try to let our clients know that it takes more than me to make Dean and Company work......The COMPANY is a major part of it. I am proud to be in business with such great people with the same desire to always serve our clients. Kristen, Renee and Zee , Vikki , Jen, Candice,Eva,Krista, Paul ,Lorenzo.Leslie and so many others to name are what makes us able to do what we can in a professional manor. Selling your home was made possible by you and your relentless assistance and the whole team! We appreciate you trusting us to sell your home and will be here for any real estate needs you have. I am proud to have had the team there when you needed us most. Your words make me proud to be in business with them all. We appreciate clients like you immensely!! Dean

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Longwood, FL.

My wife and I were in the market to purchase a home on a very tight timeline. We had initially gone with another realtor at first but after a horrible experience with them, I switched to Dean and it was a night & day experience. Dean and Zee actually listened to what we wanted and advised us of potential homes based on conditions and expectations. The previous realtor just pushed and pushed to make offers on any houses that we came across and was not looking out for our best interests. Dean and Zee both had insight into the market and area of interests. In the end I was also impressed with how Dean and Zee both worked hard to close our home in record time with our lender in under 3 weeks!! I highly recommend Dean and his team!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Orlando, FL.
Primary point of contact: Zee Anderson

Zee Anderson worked with us and we were very difficult clients. To make matters worse we lived out of state. Zee would look at homes for us and send us videos. She helped us find a home after many many months of our indesiveness!! How she put up with us I'll never know. She was just fabulous. We had a major problem on getting funds wired on settlement day. She worked her majic and the bank was able to do the wire. I would highly recommend Zee and your team in buying a home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $500K in Oviedo, FL.
Primary point of contact: Renee Kumar

My husband and I are not new to home buying. In fact, we just purchased our 10th home. But what we ARE new to is the level of service we received from Dean and Company! I had the pleasure (and good fortune!) of meeting Renee at an open house in Live Oak. I was immediately impressed with her level of professionalism, knowledge of the market, as well as her positive and bubbly personality. I knew I wanted her to be our Realtor! Normally when you are selling a home, it's a anxious time. When you have questions, you want answers quickly. Well, another thing that so impressed me about Renee, was the fact that, after months of prepping the house for sale, listing, selling, and buying, I got her voicemail. Why did that impress me? Because after all those months of calling back and forth, I realized I'd never HEARD her voicemail before! She always answered! That's never happened with any realtor I've worked with before...ever. And when I had a question about anything, if she didn't know the answer, she'd find out and get back to me immediately. If she knew Dean would have the answer, she just had me hold and got him on a three way call right then! Their level of responsiveness is unparallelled. Dean and Renee work as a team, which is great. Dean had fabulous pictures taken of our home, listed it, and it sold....in 24 hours. Dean also was a master and negotiating the finer points of the contract with the buyers realtor. I always felt he was truly in our corner, and concerned about what was best for us. And his knowledge of the industry and it's nuances made me feel very comfortable. While we were looking for our new home, Renee stressed time and time again that we could look at as many homes as we wanted and take as long as we wanted....and she meant it. She'd point things out in a home that we might not have noticed; both good and bad. Homes that we showed an interest in, she'd record on video and send them to us so we could see them again at our leisure. I never once got the feeling that she was trying to "sell" us something. We were never rushed through a home, either. And the one we eventually bought, we went back to see three times. She was just as happy to show it to us the third time as the first. On the new home purchase, we had an issue at walk though....water damage from a rainstorm the night before. We had to actually leave the closing table, meet the sellers at the new house, and negotiate a resolution on the spot! Not something normal by any means! But I'm so glad Dean was there to handle it all, because that situation could have turned bad very quickly! Not only was it resolved via an escrow hold back and addendum to the contract (again, negotiated on the spot), but I haven't had to do anything to get the problem resolved! Most realtors would have been done with you at that point. After all, the home closed. But Renee and Dean have been in constant contact with us, and following up with the sellers' agent and sellers, making sure the water issue is resolved. The only thing I have to do is tell them if a tentative appointment time they've set is ok or not! Renee and Dean have raised the bar on my expectations of what Realtors should be. I am truly grateful for their services.

Wow Karen, such a sweet review! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and Norm. I knew I wanted you as a client the moment I met you as well, we clicked right from the start. You were very easy to work with and so considerate and appreciative of everything. We had fun trying to find your perfect home, and it was definitely worth the effort I know you agree! Myself and my team strive for excellence..we all love a great customer service experience, and I want my clients to feel I couldn't have done more to make their experience top notch. I surely want to be your agent for life, and I'm glad you feel the team provided the same level of service as well. Congrats to you on your lovely new home, I can't wait to see the finished product! Thank you again for the awesome review!! Thank you, Renee.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Orlando, FL.

Dean is the guy you want. He's got a marketing budget, connections, and likes to move quickly. I think I may of gotten a less than stellar communication rhythm since he was on his only vacation he takes annually, but I can't complain: -My house got asking price -He located a buyer by advertising online, so I got a point shaved off the commission -The house was under contract within three weeks of it going on the market If you're selling a house, I don't think you can beat that...I can handle him not keeping me in the loop for a few days while he's in Hawaii--this was business, and business well done. Highly recommend.

Thank you for that wonderful review Dan. There was another client closing that time I was on vacation. He has been working with me on multiple properties for about 5 years and when I told him I was on vacation he said "is this the first time you ever took a vacation in the 5 years I know you" :) Yes being 6 hours in a different time zone has its dilemmas. I am so happy the professional pictures we took attracted the right buyer for your home :) Selling your home to an out of state buyer had its own complications as well. Thank you so much for being a stand up man and assisting with the AC problem that happened after closing, I will say that Karma will be good for you for being so honest and ethical even after closing. It was a pleasure working with you and look forward to assisting you again when a need comes up. Not sure I will be in Hawaii for that one though :) Thank you again for letting us assist you with selling your home.

Primary point of contact: Zee Anderson

I was in the market for my first home and contacted Zee Anderson, who I had been referred to by my sister. Zee helped her buy a home a couple months before. Zee did an outstanding job finding me the perfect home. Zee was very knowledgeable, constantly on top of new listings and getting me into every door to see a home that could have been the one. Zee and her team got me to the closing table in no time and I couldn't be more grateful for it. If you are in need of any assistance on buying or selling a home I would look no further then Zee and the rest of the team they have. Thank you Zee!

Primary point of contact: Zampeta Anderson

I worked mainly with Zampeta (Zee) Anderson who I chose as my realtor after I tagged along with a friend to meet with her and Zee to check out a house. Zee has such great energy, is a very positive person and actually cares about people that I knew immediately she would be a good match for me in finding a home. I have had realtors in the past but Zee goes above and beyond even to the point of contacting me while she was on vacation in Hawaii. She is also open and honest and a great advisor, not wanting to sell a bad home to anyone. I would recommend Zee to anyone searching for a home. I can assure you that you will get the best experience and all your questions will be answered in a timely fashion. Thank you, Zee. I appreciate you and all you did to help us buy our home.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $75K in Engelwood Park, Orlando, FL.

Dean was very prompt on the first call at looking and comparing comps to discuss potential sale price. We met the same day at the unit to do a walk through. The unit was listed 3 days later. He is straight forward and convinced me to list at an aggressive price which given the available units for sale and the superior condition of my unit could attract quick interest and a quick sale ... we had an all cash offer at asking price 2-3 days after listing. Hi and his staff were very prompt and professional through the entire process. Highly recommended!

Response from Dean on 07/16/2015

Ardit, Thank you for those kind words. We strive as a team to work as quickly and efficiently to be able to respond to our clients needs. The fact that you had the home in great shape was so very helpful in selling your unit ahead of the 5 other properties that are sitting on the market. The fact that some of them took phone photos of their listings did not help their clients sell them . Even though this was a small condo unit the professional photos we had arranged and paid for made your unit tower over all the other units for sale. If I tell you how many responses we had on that unit you would be surprised. All the attention and all the showings made for a full price cash offer closing in just a matter of weeks. My team and I look forward to assisting our clients in the area of real estate and we were so happy to have been of service to you. Reach out to us for any of your future real estate questions :) Thank you Dean

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Oviedo, FL.

Dean and his team all work together so response time is excellent. They are all very professional and were able bring in multiple offers as well as open houses every weekend. Dean was able to set me up with handy men and a landscaper that were at my house within days and charged very reasonable prices. I was having a hard time getting someone to come to my house that could do all the little things I needed done before listing. He also brought in a professional photographer that really made my house look good. And he paid for it as well as advertising on multiple sites. He is now working on selling my Dad's house and we already have an offer in hand.
