Living out of town and having to deal with my fathers estate was daunting to say the least.  Dean went above and beyond in taking care of every detail possible for me, and did it with the utmost professionalism, compassion and expertise. He went above and beyond his call of duty.   I can not say enough about Dean and have, and will continue to highly recommend him to anyone!   Thank you for making a very difficult time so easy.

 Thank you, Dean.

MORNA HO,

Most families have a family Dr., we seem to have a family realtor.  Dean has sold 3 properties for our family, the last sale was our rental property this summer.  Dean was easy to work with and tech savvy so we were able to complete the required paper work from California to get the property on the market a day after our tenants gave their notice.  We were very satisfied with Dean’s service including the selling price.

Thank you

ROD DUNCAN,

When I was considering selling my house I “interviewed” several realtors. I was impressed by the detail as Dean went in to explaining the various legal terms and what my options were should various situations occur during the selling process. No other realtor took the time to do this. Dean was readily available to answer any questions I had during the process and always very professional. I highly recommend him.

SUE MCALLISTER,

I was introduced to Dean Birks through my son, who had accessed Dean for real estate services to help him purchase his present home several years ago. Dean recently provided invaluable assistance to me in the purchase of a house in the city of Prince George. Dean was very helpful to both of us. Dean is very knowledgeable about the real estate market. He is hard working and he was always available to help with any problems or questions that arose during the transactions.

I found working with Dean easy.  There was no pressure to buy and I felt I could take my time to look for a house that really met my family's needs.  He was professional yet approachable and knowledgeable about the Prince George Area.  It was a good experience.

We had the good fortune to meet Dean when we decided to sell our home.  Dean took us through the process with the utmost professionalism and understanding.  He was very knowledgeable and forthright about what we needed to do in preparation to sell.  The house sold in a matter of days!!  Ray and I hoped the house would be purchased by a family as we had almost 30 years of raising a family and making wonderful memories.  We were so happy when Dean confirmed a family would be making their own memories.

Was a pleasure dealing with you Dean – best of wishes to you

Anne and Ray

RAY & ANNE BELIVEAU,

My wife and I both sold and bought a house through Dean the summer of 2017. We liked dealing with him because he was straight forward and there were no false expectations. He was clear on what we needed to do to sell are house and was easy and flexible in dealing with the purchase of our new home. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to sell or buy a home and want it done in a straight forward and efficient manner, no hype just common sense and hard work.

Thanks

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Dean. He was very professional and kept us informed every step of the way. Within days of looking for a new home, we had a deal! We would definitely want him on our team the next time we are buying or selling property.

James & Kathryn Moss

JAMES & KATHRYN MOSS,

Dean was very helpful to us in assessing our house as we prepared to sell it, and then in showing us other houses that met the criteria we were interested in. His website was very useful in showing what was available in the various area we had specified.

His manner is friendly and professional, and it was a pleasure to deal with him. We never felt pressured in any way,  and he made himself readily available when we needed him.

We have recommended him to friends who are also looking for a new home, and would do so to anyone who is in need of a good realtor.

We mean every word!

SHERRY SETHEN,

From the moment we met with Dean and listed our home until the closing of the sale of our house we felt we were in the hands of a true professional. The initial meeting when we set the price was very informative. Throughout the sale Dean kept us very well informed and always responded to our questions in a very timely fashion. Dean absolutely knows real estate and the Prince George market and we were very happy we made the decision to hire Dean!

Thanks Kevin & Karen Schmit

KEVIN & KAREN SCHMIT,

Hi Dean
Just wanted to tell you once again how happy we were to have you look after the sale of our home.  I think this is the 3rd time around for us and every time you have given us first class service. Another job well done. We couldn't have asked for more.
Thank you

John & Brenda

John Scott-Wade & Brenda Jones,

We would like to thank Dean Birks for his outstanding work on finding us a new home. Dean provided us with all the information that we needed, allowed us to think things over for each house, and was a great help when his opinion and knowledge was needed. House-hunting can be very stressful at times but with Dean's guidance the process was very productive but relaxing. I remember my wife commenting to her friends in shock that we finally found an agent that even Dave enjoyed working with.(I can be pretty cynical at times). Dean's street smarts and years of experience in the business was also valuable in the assistance he gave us above and beyond his regular duties in regard to our old location and helping us look up needed information and stipulations in the land title and other paperwork. Thanks Dean for your help and assistance in setting us up with the perfect house for us. You are a true professional.

Thanks again,
Dave & Joan

DAVE & JOAN HARRIS,

I have dealt with a number of realtors over the years but none who are nearly as good as Dean. I recently wanted to sell my condo and buy another place. Dean uses modern technology to show you by email a constantly updated personalized list of places that fit your needs and your pocketbook. I found him to be very knowledgeable about what the market would bear for my old place. He is very quick to respond to questions as matters progress. When it came time to make offers, he knew exactly how to express them so as to protect his client. Again, he uses technology so that you can sign documents electronically, speeding up the process and cutting out unnecessary trips to his office or to your place by him. His efficiency was such that I could do all the paperwork while I was out of the country! The service that he gives explains why Dean is top in sales! If I am ever needing a residential realtor again, you can be sure that it will be Dean Birks.

CHARLIE FLETCHER,

Dean Birks was recommended by several acquaintances when I decided to move from Prince George. Dean was extremely knowledgeable and professional in all aspects of listing and selling my home. He explained the appropriate listing price and kept me apprised of the current market situation. I am happy with my experience and would recommend Dean Birks to anyone considering buying or selling their home.

VICKI BARTELL,

Dean Birks is a realtor you can depend on and trust when working with real estate in the Prince George area.

I have hired Dean a couple of times as my realtor and I he handled the sale of my house and the paperwork while I was sitting

hundreds of miles away.

If I need a realtor in the future around the Prince George area I would hire him again.

DARSHAN SINGH,

"Dean was recommended to me by one of my colleagues, and I am so glad that I got him to help me with my search for a property.  He is very friendly and personable, as well as knowledgeable.  What I like most is that he is always readily available by phone or text.  He also helped me with things that were above and beyond what I would have expected.  I would definitely recommend Dean to anybody looking for a realtor and I will be using him again whenever I am looking for real estate."

DR. RANDY DUMONT,

“Dean was absolutely amazing for me during my home buying process, He was the type of person to always give his honest opinions and this saved me making the wrong decision quite a few times! I would highly recommend Dean and his experience  to anyone looking to find a realtor in Prince George!

MATTHEW EMKE,

Dean was very helpful while we sold our house. He gave us advice regarding updates before the sale, price and while offers were pending. We had almost 40 viewings, so Dean really promoted our house. Dean is available, knowledgeable, and effective. I would definitively refer a friend to his service. Cheers, Dean!

JEFF & JUDY CLOSE,

Dean gets the job done, honest and straight forward. He answers all your questions quickly.  Before you list he explains all the ins and outs, and answers even the stupid questions. He gets our recommendation.

SUSAN SANDS,
Dean provided us with the very best service; polite, courteous, truthful, pleasant . My primary concern with any real estate professional was their promise to always keep in constant contact.
Dean delivered.
SHIRLEY SAMBAD,

We had started our journey new to the role of Seller instead of Buyer. With a quick call to Dean Birks we were off to an excellent start. Dean looks at a number of market based factors and then presents his professional opinion of your home and it's value. He adds in extra value by sharing his many years of Real Estate experience to help the process along. Since day one of the listing Dean keeps in contact and works with your own agendas to insure you are always kept informed on the progress. I would highly recommend Dean Birks to anyone looking to list or buy!

Thomas & Sasha

THOMAS SANDVOSS,

Given that I had not lived in Prince George for nearly 20 years, I had to ask a few people for suggestions when it came time to find a realtor to sell our recreational property. Dean\'s name kept coming up, and I can now see why. We were very happy with the service he provided, especially given that the entire process had to be done long distance and with multiple parties. This was also not a particularly easy listing, as the property had been in our family since the late 1950s and was quite unique in the region. Dean\'s listing, however, attracted the attention that this property deserved and we got exactly the price we were expecting.

As a Municipal Planner, I work with a lot of realtors on a daily basis. Realtors like Dean are successful because they take the time to understand their client\'s needs and address their concerns. The process of buying or selling real estate can be nerve-wracking. It is important to have a professional like Dean working with you and for you to ensure that all the details are taken care of.

Thank you.

MATTHEW BALDWIN,

We recently sold our house and our Realtor was Dean Birks. We were very
pleased with his service. Our house was well advertised with excellent pictures and detailed descriptions. Our house sold very quickly which we felt was due to the hard work put in by Dean.

Bill and Vina Baillie

BILL & VINA BAILLIE,

If you are selling and want to get results in a timely and painless manner, Dean Birks is the real estate professional to use. I had two rental properties in Prince George I needed to sell while I am living in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory.. There was no problem dealing with him remotely and the properties sold much faster than I expected. I have dealt with many realtors over the years, but none as good as Dean. I had one of the two properties up for sale twice in the past with a different realtor and it failed to sell both times. This time, it sold within 30 days.

Dean also went the extra mile by arranging such things as removing a vehicle abandoned by a renter and other items which would be very difficult for me to deal with.

Thanks again.
Lee Nunn

LEE NUNN,

We know several realtors and while they are all good, Dean was our first and only choice. Working with Dean is simple and easy. He is very professional, thorough and thoughtful. That made the difficult choice of moving a little easier knowing we were in good hands. We have total confidence in Dean's advice and ability. We highly recommend his services.

Chuck Walls and Shari Green

SHARI GREEN & CHUCK WALLS,

During our listing and then sale, Dean was easy to get a hold of and his willingness to stay up to date with technology makes it easy to sign a deal or update an offer from out of town.

I was extremely happy with my experience using Dean to sell my home. At a very difficult time in my life, and needing to sell a high-end home, Dean made me feel calm, and gave me confidence that he could sell my home quickly.
He thoroughly explained his marketing plan, was very professional, and prompt in responding to my questions and concerns.
Dean truly made selling my home a “stress-less” experience, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing a real estate agent.

Thank you - Ilona Breckon

BYRON & LEANN POPPLETON,

Two years ago we were tring to sell our house, so i picked a real estate firm to help us, well 1 year later not even a showing did they have for us. I was also looking for a place to buy in Quesnel as that's were work took us. The realtor helping us there said to me if you wana sell your house fast, stress free and a fair price call Dean Birks. So I did and the house was sold in less than 22 days we were so happy. Dean is so easy to talk with and he makes sure you, the seller understands all you need to know about the sale.. Thank you Dean you ARE very good at what you do AND WE ARE VERY HAPPY.

Rick Campioni

RICK CAMPIONI,

As a first time home buyer Dean was a precious guide along the process allowing me to explore options that I wanted, but advising on the value and issues of the home. It was like having a trusted family member sell you a house both supporting and providing a honest expert opinion. With any of my future real estate needs he would be my first call.

Cheers,
Teal Sluggett

TEAL SLUGGETT,

Client Review - We would recommend Dean Birks to anyone who is looking for a special real estate agent. Dean was of great assistance to us when we purchased our new home this year. We always got an immediate reply to our emails and texts. And when we were 'in the dark' as to who to contact about financing and lawyers, Dean was able to guide us in the right direction.

Thank you Dean
R and A Loro

RICCARDO LORO,

"Time was of the essence when we needed a new home for our growing family. Dean was thorough in finding a comfortable and safe place for our baby on the way. His ability to recognize our needs was professional, yet the experience for us first-time buyers was casual and pleasant. He was able to find us the perfect place at the right price - and just in the nick of time! Our baby was born a month after we settled in. We will definitely ask for his expertise in our future real estate needs.

Thank you so much for being so accommodating.
Megan Allen"

MEGAN ALLEN,

Dean helped us sell our home in June. He was most efficient, friendly, and professional. He gave us excellent advice on our asking price, answered all our questions, and always got back to us promptly by phone, text, or email. Our house was shown several times in the 10 days it took to sell. We couldn't have been more satisfied with Dean's services, and we highly recommend him.

Beth and Grant Smith

BETH & GRANT SMITH,

Dean was our real estate agent and we found him excellent to deal with. He was well informed on the market and gave us great advice. When people had viewed the house, he emailed us a feed back on the viewing, keeping us in the loop.

Thanks again Dean.

BOB & DIANE MONAHAN,

"We would have no qualms about referring Dean Birks to any of our friends and neighbours. He is honest, punctual, available for appointments, listens to your views on what you think your property is worth, and is efficient with all up-to-date technologies to assist in greater exposure."

Thanks
Ivan and Pauline Jones

IVAN & PAULINE JONES,

During the three months we worked with Dean Birks to sell our home and purchase another, Dean was very professional and committed. Dean worked with us to keep our home sale moving forward and was dedicated to helping us find a new home. Dean showed us several homes before we found the one that was right for us and was prepared to see the deal through. We can recommend Dean Birks without reservation as a skilled realtor who worked with us to help us reach our goal.

Bill & Joan Hood
