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.

Adam and Heather Boyko

BETTY MCCRAY,

Thank you for your professionalism, and for selling my home so quickly! :

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

ILONA BRECKON,

Hi Dean

Thanks for all your work in selling our house so quickly!

Dean was extremely professional & explained the process of listing our house very well. He was always quick to respond to our texts or e-mails and answer all of our questions. He guided us well in pricing our house & dealing with the offers we received. Ultimately our house sold very quickly. We were very happy with Dean's services & would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional realtor.

Leeann & Byron Poppleton

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

BILL & JOAN HOOD,

Real Estate Review - It has been a pleasure to work with Dean. He made himself available around our schedule, making the buying process easier. We just wanted to say thank you for getting us into our new home before Christmas and we look forward to dealing with Dean in the future

PATRICIA & COLIN FOLK,

We are pleased to recommend Dean Birks as a realtor. Dean is knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with. He offered helpful advice and was able to sell our property in a timely manner in a tough market. Dean always kept us up to date, and answered any calls, emails and questions right away.

T and L Small.

Thanks Dean and have a Merry Christmas.

TERRY & LESLIE SMALL,

I have bought and sold quite a few properties with different realtors in the past few years, but my experience in while working with Dean far surpasses my previous experiences.

His experience in marketing my home through internet exposure, local print advertising, and above all listening to my opinions helped sell where others failed.

One of the things I appreciate most about Dean was his patience with me while looking for a new home. We looked at so many, yet I never felt like I was wasting his time.

I have and will recommend Dean to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

Cheers, Lorrie Parker

LORRIE PARKER,

I want to express my satisfaction and gratitude for the services provided to my wife and I by Dean Birks as our real estate agent. He was recommended to me by a competing agency from Regina as they did not have an office in Prince George. We had a very short amount of time to find a house and make an offer to purchase which required us to arrived on a Friday and visit homes for the next 4 days including the weekend. Dean went above and beyond in finding suitable homes based on our wish list. He was very much at our beck and call day and night during this time since we were pressed for time. His in-depth knowledge of Prince George's housing market and the city in general was invaluable to us as we had never been here before and knew little about the city and surrounding area. Our final purchase was a new home with a great deal of follow up required to ensure it was complete before our arrival in a few weeks. Dean had to make a lot of phone calls and visits on our behalf while we returned to Regina to pack up our old home and make the move. His knowledge of housing construction and applicable regulations was impressive and a big help to us coming from a completely different part of the country with different rules and challenges.

There is no question that I would recommend his services to anyone seeking an agent and can only hope that his will still be "in the business" when it is time for my next house sale.

David Doncaster

DAVID DONCASTER,

As we are fairly new to Canada we were really lucky to meet Dean Birks. He guided us through the whole process of finding and buying a new home. At any time we felt very well looked after. Dean recommended us the right projects and gave us the feeling of making the right decision.

Thanks a lot for your great support!

Silke and Peter van Wylick

SILKE & PETER VAN WYLICK,

“I had called another Realtor one day and this person didn’t get back to me. When I called Dean Birks the following day, he got back to us within the hour and he made available right away an opportunity for us to look at 1st house we wanted to look at before we purchased the 2nd house we looked at. Dean helped us with the paperwork and made everything we required ready in a prompt manner. Tracy and myself appreciate your work and we will for sure use you again. Thank-you.”

Mark Shaw

MARK SHAW,

We would recommend Dean to anyone selling or buying real estate. He is very knowledgeable, gave us great service and became more of a friend than a realtor to us! Keep up the great work Dean!

Gerald and Liz Letcher

GERALD AND LIZ LETCHE,

"Having purchased investment properties in the past I have gone through a number of real estate agents and have never walked away feeling happy with the experience until I met Dean Birks. Dean listened to my needs and was able to find me two investment properties that work perfect for me. I appreciated that he was never too busy to answer my questions or fix any situations that arose and he has a rare quality of knowing exactly what he is selling"

Thanks
Tracy Taylor

TRACY TAYLOR,

Dean you have done a fantastic job with all the Home Sales and Purchases in my 12 years living in PG.
I guess like the times Lily and I have had to sell and leave it was from Economy Swings and market changes and not always really what we may have wanted to do at the time. Anyway you are a great Realtor that has kept your Integrity for all of our time working together and that is something that will be a life long mention when anyone we know asks if we know a reliable and hard working Realtor when needing to buy or sell a home in your area.

Thanks & Cheers

JAMES & LILY ASTLEY,

Once again Dean Birks has shown his colors and performed as a true professional in his trade. As an investor from out of town Dean listens to your comments and puts the details into action. He works diligently to get results and keeps you informed of the progress. Dean is the pro you want working on your team to get things done be it buying or selling.

Thanks again Dean for a making things happen for me.

Bob and Dianne Killman

BOB AND DIANNE KILLMAN,

Dean is the BEST!!! He is so patient and helped us out with all our questions and concerns...We've been looking for a home since September for we were relocating here....Never to busy to show us homes at the last minute and gave us superior advice. We recommend his service to a family member and their house had an accepted offer within a day...we will continue to use Dean and refer him to all our family & friends!

Thanks Dean so much for making our transition to wonderful Prince George a great experience.

Chris & Christine Leclerc

CHRISTINE LECLERC,

Our first experience buying a home was with Dean and from the moment we met him we seen how much knowledge he had and we trusted him with this experience right away. We trusted he wouldn't sell us a home that was not a right fit for us or that it was an unsafe buy. We had looked at some homes that he was very honest about and pointed out issues in them and the reason not to buy for good reason. I cannot express how happy I am with our home choice and we are so happy with the outcome. It was comfortable and it was relaxing knowing that we could trust that he knew what he was doing.

Rena and Gerald.

RENA & GERALD WHITECOTTON,

When we set out to buy our home we chose Dean Birks as our realtor. Dean was very helpful at finding houses that suited our needs, and even though the process was long he always remained helpful. I would recommend Dean to anyone looking to buy a home even my best-friend, and I did just that. When you start looking to buy a house you want someone like Dean Birks, he knows the housing market and will find you what you want.

Merry Christmas Dean!

DUSTIN & AMBER GAGNON,

Dean Birks was very attentive to my requirements for a home and provided all the available options on the market in order to narrow my focus and decide on what listings I wished to view. During the viewings, he provided the pros and cons of the property to assist with my decisions, when required. This was very valuable to me as I was new to the area. He also negotiated the best price possible. His assistance as a real estate agent was invaluable in acquiring the best home for me within my timetable and budget.

Thanks again,
Judith

JUDITH JOHNSON,

When we explored the ability to sell our home we interviewed realtors to see what our home was worth and how long it should take to sell. Dean came to us with the most thought out plan of sale of all realtors we interviewed; he utilized his good working relationships with other realtors from other firms and exposed our home to his targeted plan of sale. This proved very effective as we received and accepted an offer of sale in only 2 days. We highly recommend Dean for his professional business manner and his shared market experience that lead to the successful sale of our home.

BOB & VIVIAN WILLIAMS,

I looked at numerous houses over the course of 3 weeks. Dean was patient, non-biased, and informative. When I had questions, he had answers (or he knew who to call to get the answers). He quickly learned what I was looking for, and took me into houses that would fit me and my family while avoiding houses he knew I wouldn't like. I love my home Dean, thanks for helping me find it!

James and Lisa MacDonald

JAMES & LISA MACDONALD,

Choosing the right realtor can be a nerve racking experience. After interviewing a few realtors, we found Dean's energy and candid ways to be the right fit for us to entrust him with the sale of our house. Prince George Real estate is obviously more than just a job for Dean!
Thanks again,
The Chorneys
