Team reviews

Dean and his team helped us buy our forever home. The home was listed For Sale By Owner which seemed intimidating at first. But having Dean come to the table with us to help us negotiate was amazing. His negotiation skills are spot on. He helped us come up with an offer price and sat with the sellers and explained to them why they should accept our offer. He and his team were there every step of the way, recommending a home inspection company (highly recommend them, too!), helping us navigate the world of home mortgage lenders, and getting us to closing on time! Buying a home can seem like such an ominous process but with this team of experts on our side just one phone call or email away, we are all moved in to our dream home and we couldn't have done it without them. You won't regret working with this team!

Now think about it, your forever home might have a helipad, on the ocean built into a tree that was hand carved :) But if it is not then this is an absolutely beautiful forever home. We were so happy to assist in the process of this gorgeous home purchase. We get jealous sometimes when we see what our clients have from time to time and that home in that condition with that view is jealous worthy. I surely want to be invited to one of those soon to be famous 4th of July parties in the future:) We loved that you were never more than a 5 minute response to any email or text you were ever sent,. That makes the process so much easier when there was an obstacle to overcome . Looking forward to hearing about all the wonderful memories that are sure to come with your new forever home :) You both deserve it!!!!!

Hire this team! Dean and his team helped us sell our home. We listed it Friday, had an open house on Saturday, and had two offers by Monday night. While we'd like to think that our house did all the work, we know that it was really Dean's team. From bringing in a photographer to take great pictures, to helping us price our home right, to bringing in prospective buyers, Dean set us up for success. He and his team were super responsive to my emails and phone calls (a huge advantage!) and really made selling our home easy! And it's not just "what" he and his team do, it's "how" they do it as well. Working with people who aim to deliver such amazing customer service really makes a difference. We would recommend Dean and his team 100 times over!

When I walk up to the door of some homes from the moment I get out of the car I get a feeling how someone takes care of the home. That feeling lets me know how well a home can sell if priced correctly. I had that feeling when we pulled up to your home. Then when we walked in the home that feeling was confirmed. You both had a wonderful home and the way you took care of it made giving you advice on condition useless :) Your home was impeccable and that was obvious to any buyer to walk through the door. You both knew the home you wanted and when you priced it to get multiple offers you surely received multiple offers. You were both trusting one the buy and sell process that we would be able to work them both and being able to sign them both on the original date of closing made us all so happy for you both!!!! I remember when we first spoke that you were considering using another agent. I am so happy that you trusted my team to help you and that you do not regret your decision Thank you

Dean and Zee helped me purchase my dream home. Zee was relentless and was on top of any issues that occurred. She kept me informed of everything that was occuring and provided daily updates. They are both very knowledgeable with the VA process making the purchase painless. I am so impressed with their services that I will be utilizing them as my listing agents for a home that I am getting ready to sell.

My Dear Tony and Brenda, it was such a great experience going trough it together. From the very beginning it was a hard deal. We wasn't able to see it for the longest time and when we were, Brenda was sick so we had to facetime with her the whole time. She absolutely fall in love with it but you already knew that. It was definitely a roll coaster of emotions and when you have 4 sellers that can't agree, it definitely makes it hard. But we DID IT!! I cannot wait to come over and see all the changes. You guys are awesome and congratulations!!!

Dean and his associate Renee Kumar are one of the best real Estate agents I have worked with. They helped in preparing the house for sale and had an open house one day after we signed the contract and the house was sold the next day.

Thank you so very much!!!! If I had sellers like you two more often I would have a few less grey hairs on my head. My team appreciates you both and your willingness to do what sellers need to do to sell a home . We are here for any questions now and in the future. We really appreciate you taking the time out to post your review. That is just another reason we will always appreciate you both!

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!

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

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!

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
