Team reviews

I met Dean a few years ago in regards to a rental property. I was very impressed with his professionalism, so six years later I decided to call him to assist me in buying home. He sent Renee Kumar from his team to assist me. Renee is great! She was very responsive with any questions or concerns I had. When I found a house that I really liked, she got a showing for me the next day which happend to be Easter. And it is good thing she got us in that day because that Monday there were a lot of inquiries on the house. Well I ended up getting my offer in first, thanks to Renee's quick action, and I got the house. Renee is very personable, knowledgable and very honest. There were a couple of times we would walk in a house and she would quickly say, you don't want this house because of x,y,z I really appreciated that. She wasn't looking for a quick sale, she wanted to make sure that I get what I wanted. My expereince with Deans team these past few months have been nothing but positive. I highly recommend this team for selling or buying a home. If I decide to sell and/or buy again, I will be calling Dean and Company!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this wonderful review Shante! I thoroughly enjoyed working with you and your boys from the start. You were very responsive yourself, and you were so open to any and all advice, which I truly appreciate from my clients. It was fun home shopping with you, and finding you a home that you and your boys would love...you let me know when they want to get into real estate with all of their obvious skills! Again, I really appreciate the review, and I love that you have the home you've wanted for a long time now. No doubt I have a rewarding job, and much of that is due to clients like yourself so thank you! I look forward to seeing you soon!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Lake Terrace, Orlando, FL.

We had a very positive experience with Dean. He evaluated the property and told us the things we needed to do to get the property ready for sale. He was very responsive in providing us expert repair and cleaning crew who made the repairs quickly. Dean took pictures of all work done and sent it to us as soon as work was completed. the house was listed on Friday and we had a offer on Monday! this was very impressive. the closing process went very smoothly. Dean is very professional and easy to work with. I would recommend him to my family and friends for sure. Thanks Dean for your help in selling our house.

Thank you both for writing such a nice review of your impressions of us helping to sell your home. I love the fact that you both asked what was needed to get the home in shape to sell and then 2 days later everything was done from your side and then our guys here finished up and your home was Professional photography ready. You were both able to be reached quickly and electronically signed just as quickly. I love that Renee and I were referred to you from family that we have been also able to assist in buying homes. We are here to assist you with any needs you and your family have in the future and will always offer you the excellent service you deserve. Thank you so much for trusting us in selling your home!!!!!! I look forward to working with great sellers like you all the time :)

Dear Zee, It's a pleasure to write this review to thank you for all your hard work in finding me a property. Thanks, in your case, certainly is not enough! I hope this review explains my belief that you are an exemplary Realtor. From the time of our first meeting, you were honest and direct. You explained to me how the process would unfold so I wouldn't be surprised, and you recommended things that I could do to help with buying. When it came to setting an asking price and later when we adjusted that price, you always listened to my thoughts. In those discussions it quickly became obvious that you knew your market and the players in local real estate. You communicated frequently and effectively with me, and your clients. To your credit I was never blindsided or in the dark at any time. You were proactive and kept me looking ahead of the present. Your numerous tours were comprehensive and beneficial in making things happens. Other agents, started to focus more on quick easy sales but you did not. It was during these difficult times when I needed your best, and that was what I’ve got. By this time we had grown accustomed to your sense of humor, high energy level, and great work ethic, but now you amazed me with your flexibility, creativity, and persistence in making the sale. It is no exaggeration that closing and selling is a stressful endeavor both emotionally and fiscally. You provided that support and confidence I needed to know things would work out. Through it all you were a Realtor who was clearly a partner and a friend. For all of these reasons this is why I can unconditionally recommend you to my friends and acquaintances. It is without hesitation we would seek you out with any future real estate needs.

My Dear Nathalie, Thank you so much for this wonderful review! It was so great to get to know you and guide you through your new investment property. You are such a beautiful young smart lady and looking forward to see you growing your investments and our friendship. From the very beginning you were very understanding and made it easy by always listening to my advice. I love speaking about our today's market with you and most of all I love how everything I said to you, you made the right decisions for your future. I always say that my clients are either my friends or will become my friends by the end of the transaction and we have definitely done that. You a house and I gained a friend. Cheers! Zee

Dean and his team did a tremendous job in pricing and selling our home. Their open house advertising and online marketing strategies seemed to be very effective and I would recommend them to anyone selling a home in Central Florida area.

Zach and Josi Thank you for taking the time to write this review :) I told you we would open house your home until it sold. Yes there were a lot of open house we did ,and we appreciated you and the family taking time away from the home to allow that. It was beneficial because one of the people that came to the home made a lower offer but with the multiple offers we were able to make the other offer raise their price. That and being under contract in less than 40 days was able to help you get your new home in your new home state:) We were happy to help and happy to know that you both electronically signed documents very quickly without delay. Glad we were able to help and your family move to your new state with wonderful new memories and leaving the message and the wine for the buyers was a touch of class they really appreciated. Call us with any questions now and in the future.Thank you Dean

It was a pleasure working with Dean Gonzalez. He is pro-active, professional and very knowledgeable! At our closing, he and his company made sure that everything ran smoothly. Not only is Dean our Realtor, but he has become part of our family. We trust him completely.

The two of you were awesome to work with and you kept me updated every step of the way. You were so proactive that nothing was able to go wrong. We knew from the moment you came into the open house that you were awesome people and were going to be awesome clients! So happy that your son likes the room we brainstormed at the open house and seeing all you have done with the home since is quite incredible. We couldn't be happier to now be able to call you both friends. The fact that you two ( the buyers) and the sellers and us have gone out a couple of times since then speaks volumes about all of you being great people!

Primary point of contact: Renee Kumar

Dean and his colleagues, especially Renee Kumar, are dedicated professionals who went the extra many, many miles to ensure that our short sale home purchase was a success. Our situation was unique: we live in China! As a result, paperwork required by the mortgage company (such as confirmations of employment status and normal "American-style" bank documents) were hard to obtain. Dean and his crew came up with creative ways to satisfy these requirements, and we got the house! Personable, humorous, confident and focused. Highly recommended.

Thank you for the wonderful review Mitch! Yes, this one was a tough short sale to say the least. It's nice to say not only did we get through it, you now have a gorgeous new home and it appraised for $30,000 above the price we were able to get the home for, which of course is awesome news!!! Your family was so patient with the short sale process, and we appreciate that you did your part and jumped through hoops over there in China as well to make this transaction happen. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and your family, and we look forward to seeing you again when you are back in town! All the best, Renee

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $400K in Orlando, FL.

Dean and his team combined forces with Alex Torres to create a formidable unit. They constantly went the extra mile to help me sell my home. I would not hesitate to recommend Dean and Alex to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. They were responsive and helpful with any questions that I had during the process. I think they produced a buyer that most other agents would not have found. Thank you! Eric

Response from Dean on 04/25/2015

Eric it was our pleasure to help Alex help you sell this gorgeous lake front home. Tenant occupied properties can be a little more difficult to sell but with Alex and you having a great relationship with the tenant getting your home sold was that much easier. When the offer came in you were decisive and with a cash offer that is very important. Sometimes Real Estate teams join forces and it means the sum is greater than all parts. That was the case with Alex and I helping to sell your home. Thank you for taking the time to write a review about us and your real estate experience with us! Glad we were able to put your home in your rear view mirror:)

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Orlando, FL.

I first started working with Dean Gonzalez and company when my wife and I began looking for a new home in Orlando. His associate Renee helped us. She was very knowledgeable, courteous, and accommodating. After a few weeks of looking I received a job offer to move out of state and connected with Renee to see if her company also sold houses. She put me in contact with Dean and the process began. Dean was well versed in the market, very informative, and open about the entire process. When our house listed it was on the market for a few days before an offer came in. Dean was open about the entire process and aided us every step of the way. We never had to reach out to him because he was always in contact with us. At the end of closing he contacted us to tell us that he appreciated our business. I would highly recommend this group for your home sale as well as if you are trying to find a home to buy. Renee is the best.

Clyde you and Sara were as great to work with as Renee told me you would be. Sitting down with Sara and you by way of Facetime was a great way for us to see each and getting a face to face :) From that moment of speaking to you both and you both knowing all the things we spoke about to get you the most money in the quickest time and doing it was great. Some sellers might not listen to all the advice that agents might give them but you two both did! Not to mention the fact that we sent you a document and not even 10 minutes later it was electronically in my inbox :) We are blessed to work in Real Estate and appreciate all our clients. We especially appreciate those that are selling for the first time and trust us to handle that for them. Clients like you are so very much appreciated and we look forward to being here as a source for any of your future real estate questions or needs. We wish you the best luck in your new state with wonderful memories to follow:)

Im a first time buyer, and he really had my best interest in mind. Made sure i got the type of house i wanted instead of settling. Suggested i hold out a bit longer, and i got a house almost twice as large as the one i almost settled for. And we kept in the budget.

My Husband and I where looking for a condo in Orlando for our Daughter Sabrina which will be attending UF Pharmacy school in the fall. Not knowing the area I called several realtors and had no response until I called Dean Gonzalez which not only answered my call but also set up and appointment with Zee at that time. I went to orlando to meet with her and she already had great locations for us to see. I not only felt very comfortable with her but she really understood all my concerns with my 22 yrs old living alone for the first time and the importans of the location and her safety she really knew exactly what I wanted and I did not have to go up to orlando all the time she was so sweet she took vidoe of the condos we wanted to see. After great consideration we finally found the perfect location and was able to close in less then a month. I would recommend Zee to anyone looking to buy or list a home . Her and her team was very knowledgeable at what they do and will help you with anything that you need.

Gilda,I definitely appreciate this review. I am so glad we were able to find something nice in a safe neighborhood for your daughter. It took us a bit of time but that's the only way to do it when we had so many concerns and you wasn't familiar with the area. I believe now you know this whole area and plus ;).
