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 & 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

TYLER & THERESA CHORNEY,

As first time home buyers there was a lot of things that we didn't know. Dean took us through everything one step at a time. He helped us find the perfect home. He was there to answer all of our questions and went above and beyond to make sure it was done right.

If you're buying or selling a home you need the best real estate agent in town and Dean is definitely it.

Give him a call. You won't ever regret it.

CHRISTINA & EDWARD MARK,

Without reservation I would recommend Dean Birks as a Real Estate Agent. I found him to be knowledgeable and patient. He always has time to look at one more house. He also offers a lot of information and tools via his Web site that are extremely helpful with all your moving and non moving / relocation questions.

RON BAKER,

Moving is an exciting life event, but it can be a very stressful, as well. There are so many details to consider. Among the most important of changes, and one containing potential for so many things to go wrong, is the acquisition of a new home. When looking for a new home in Prince George it was extremely important to me that my realtor would listen to what I wanted and work diligently to find just the right house for me, and that they would know their business well enough to get the job done with the least amount of stress for me.
Dean Birks was a knowledgeable, hardworking realtor that handled all the bumps along the road of home buying with the utmost professionalism and an ever-present positive attitude. His years of experience in the realty business in Prince George combined with his knowledge of and love for this community make him a realtor I would recommend to anyone shopping for real estate in the Prince George area.

-Lynn McCracken, new resident to Prince George.

LYNN MCCRAKEN,

When it was time to sell our home I interviewed several agents before I decided on Dean. He was so well organized, and efficient but mostly he belived in the house and what we could sell it for, and he was the agent that came in with the highest price. Within days he had a realtor tour through the house and an open house booked. We never did get to the open house as it was sold in about 10 days. Our sale had some tense moments but Dean kept the deal together and made it happen. The other thing I liked was when ever I had a question, I could always reach him, and he would get right back to me with a quick response.

I would strongly recommend Dean Birks to anyone selling or buying. Thanks Dean.

KEVIN & ALLISON MCCRAY,

“Dean provided expert assistance in the sale of our home in PG. The unique point is that it was done from a distance. We reside in Fort Nelson and our home was in PG. The process was seamless. Dean assessed our home, bench-marked it against other similar homes and ended up achieving a much better result than a competitor realtor had discussed with us. Our home sold quickly and painlessly. We would definitely recommend Dean’s services to our friends and family.”

JACK STEVENSON,

Having lived more than thirty years in Prince George, we have had the opportunity to see local realtors navigating a variety of markets. When it was time to relocate, we were able to consider a “blue ribbon” shortlist of realtors to sell our home. Dean Birks was selected and he more than lived up to our hopes and expectations. A consummate professional, Dean Birks can astutely sense the underlying value in a property and then realize that value through effective marketing. Dean proved to be the right choice for us. We can heartily recommend him to others who wish to sell.

Judy and Kerry Firth

JUDY & KERRY FIRTH,

Relocating from Calgary to Prince George was a big step for us, as we knew very little about Prince George prior to moving. We were very lucky to have Dean as our Real Estate Agent as he made the home buying process as simple as possible. From the beginning he made sure that he knew what we were looking for, and asked us questions so he would know our likes and dislikes. When we came to Prince George to purchase a home, Dean had everything well organized and gave us honest opinions on some of our choices. In the end we found a wonderful home in a great neighborhood and we look forward to working with Dean in the future.

Thanks again Dean!

GREG PETERS,

Thank you, Dean for making our first home purchase enjoyable. You always listened and gave great advice. You acted in our best interest and closed the deal we wanted. Even after the deal was firm, you continued to serve us. The contacts you refereed to us were second to none and spoke very highly of you. Dean, we appreciate the way you looked after us and always made sure we were completely satisfied. We will recommend you to everyone.

DOUG AND HOLLY MCALEER,

We would highly recommend Dean Birks as a real estate agent, He has been our real estate agent on more than one occasion and every time has given us his undivided attention, every detail looked after, every request taken care of. With Dean it is like you are his only customer and I know he is very busy. We do a lot of real estate business and we will be using Dean Birks again and again.

Thanks for your friendly and efficient service Dean

Sincerely
Randy and Val Kazemir

RANDY & VAL KAZEMIR,

Thanks Dean for the great service you provided for us with our real estate purchase in Prince George. As we are from out of town purchasing an investment property, your professionalism and hospitable nature was much appreciated. The door-to-door service from the airport, tour of Prince George and all of the properties we viewed was a fantastic introduction to the area. You made our purchase a breeze! Two thumbs up!!!

TAMI BALLARD,

I thought I would write you a note to let you know how pleased we were with our recent sale. Sometimes getting a realtor to handle rental properties can be a real hassle. We found you to be professional and prompt from the first day we met. We especially appreciated the fact that when we met, you did not take calls on your cell phone, we had 100% of your attention. You took care of dealing with our tenants and booking all appointments. The property was sold quickly and for almost full price. What more could a customer ask for. Thank You Dean for a job well done, you were worth every penny of that commission cheque.

Thanks
Wendy & Jeff Hinton

WENDY & JEFF HINTON,

We have had the pleasure of dealing with Dean for our real estate investments. Although the homes are not for our personal use, Dean treated us with the same personal and friendly service that he gives all his clients. He always knows what we are looking for and contacts us continually with his newest finds that might be of interest to us. He is the most energetic and honest realtor we have had the pleasure of dealing with and do not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Whether it be for property investments or buying your dream home, we know that Dean Birks will go that extra mile for you as he does for us. Thanks Dean!

JOHN METCALFE,

We just sold our home and upgraded to another. We would like to thank you Dean for all your help. Your patience, flexible hours, & professionalism is fantastic. Your website is the best!! The "client updates" tab was very helpful for the move. We tell everyone we know that you went way above and beyond when the financing fell through for the purchasers of our old home and came up with another buyer.

We do and will recommend you to anyone looking for a realtor in Prince George Real Estate market. We would definitely call you if/when we are ready to do business again.

Thanks so much – you made a very difficult time very easy!!

Jay & Melanie Robbestad

JAY & MELANIE ROBBESTAD,

Both my wife and I are happy to recommend Dean Birks as a realtor in Prince George. Our experience with him has been a very positive one. In addition to his thorough knowledge of real estate in the area, he is level-headed and calm in his analysis which is especially useful in a fluctuating market. While selling our home, he was always responsive to our needs and highly professional in his work. Our house sold very close to the price at which we listed it (and which Dean recommended). Dean was equally knowledgeable and professional when it came to assisting us to find a new house with exactly the features, price and location we were looking for.

PETER EWART,

Rob and I really do appreciate everything you have done for us. We both feel you went over and above to try and get us top dollar and make a sale (it is unfortunate that everyone else had the bright idea to sell at the same time we did!). You were creative and original. You are very professional, very available and understanding of your clients needs and anxieties during what can be very emotionally trying times for people. We are both very happy to have had you as our realtor and to have gotten to know you both on a professional level as well as you and your family on a personnel level (hope they are all well, give them our best!). We would not hesitate to use Dean as our realtor in any future dealings we have or as we are now outside of the PG area, to contact Dean for a referral of a realtor that has the same work ethics and morals as he. Thanks again Dean for everything you have done for our family.

ROB & LEANNE THOMPSON,

"My wife and I were very impressed with Dean when
he sold all of our investment properties and settled us into our new
home".

Mia and Richard Laube

MIA & RICHARD LAUBE,

My wife and I recently put our house on the market so I wanted to deal with a person I considered a professional in the real estate business so that's why we called Dean.
It was the day after we listed our house he was already showing it and it did not take long for it to be sold. We then had to purchase a house and Dean helped us with that as well and I loved the fact he always made time to accommodate us to look at properties which helped us buy a house quickly which we needed to do. I would definitely recommend Dean for your real estate needs and I would also mention everyone at Royal Lepage very helpful when we called for anything.
Thanks again Dean much appreciated.

Brent & Gayleen Stone

BRENT STONE,

Dean came to us highly recommended, which was extremely important as this was the first home that we were selling. He explained the entire process in a way that made us feel very comfortable with the proceedings. He kept us informed during the entire time our house was listed, and it sold very quickly! He also recommended a Royal LePage realtor in the area we were relocating to, and she proved to be an excellent resource as well. We would highly recommend Dean to anyone who is in the process of buying or selling a home, especially those who are new to the experience.

Thanks
Dennis & Sharon M

DENNIS & SHARON M,

Dean Birks was very insightful assistance by providing suitable options from which I purchase the best home for my needs.
Later when I had to leave Prince George, Dean Birks provided an accurate assessment of my home which assisted me to arrive at a competitive sale price for my home and it sold in less than 5 days.
Throughout both processes, Dean Birks provided accurate information and analysis of the real estate market which led to a successful purchase and sale of my home.

All the best
Judith Johnson

JUDITH JOHNSON,

Having never sold a property before, Dean helped guide me through the process, which was surprisingly painless, and I learned a lot. I highly recommend his services as he makes it easy, efficient, thorough, and I felt he had my best interests in mind through out the sale. Thank you for the great service Dean!

Thanks again!
Vaunda

VAUNDA DUMONT,

I recently listed my duplex in Prince George with Dean Birks and after a couple of discussions, I felt very comfortable and assured that Dean would do everything possible to sell my property. He viewed the property and provided me with some comparables and a plan to sell the property, which was sold in two weeks. After my experience with Dean, I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to purchase or sell a property in the Prince George area.

Rick & Cheryl

RICK & CHERYL OAKES,

We were extremely pleased with Dean Birks as our chosen realtor for selling out property. He is very professional, personable and will go the extra mile to sell your property.

WILF AND MARLENE NELSON,

If you're looking for a great realtor we highly recommend Dean Birks, He helped us sell our old house and then spent many hours helping us find another one that suited our needs. Dean was always easy to get a hold of, very professional in all our dealings and helped make the whole process a lot easier. His use of the web pages and electronic media was a real help as we were away much of the time. Thanks Dean

Stan and Bertha Utz

STAN & BERTHA UTZ,

I would highly recommend using Dean Birks again if I was looking at purchasing or selling my home.

As a long-time resident, I found him very informative about Prince George and the surrounding area. Whatever your needs, residential or commercial, there isn’t a doubt in my mind that Dean can help you find what you need.
He’s a realtor who won’t pressure you to finalize the deal and is accessible 24/7 to answer any of your questions or concerns.

Let’s face it, we live in a world where time is money…. Feeling comfortable to step back and assess a situation is priceless!

Marina Meldrum

MARINA MELDRUM,

My wife and I have used Dean exclusively for all of our real estate dealings over the last 21 years, Deans professionalism and drive are second to none and whether its buying or selling our home(s) or looking for our recreational property he has never let us down. Even when we were not listing we could call Dean for advice and he would eagerly share his outlook on current and future market conditions assisting us in deciding what’s best for us, At times his advice would not benefit him! In short we have received unrivalled service from Dean right up until our needs have been met and he has earned our
loyalty.

Darren & Lisa Johnson

DARREN & LISA JOHNSON,

Our property was situated in the North of Prince George, a challenge for Dean and us to find the right buyer who appreciates life in a lovely valley and rural setting. Dean provided us with the best possible service to market our property, and he went above and beyond to close this sale.

Again, thank you so much for all your hard work.

Silke and Peter

SILKE AND PETER VAN WYLICK,

I would recommend Dean and I will work with him in the future. He did a great job of showing us the type of house we want to see in the appropriate price range.
Thanks Dean

DEAN BERGEN,

Dean was recommended by a co-worker to sell an older home that had been on the market for over a year. He was very efficient, friendly, and professional. He provided valuable advice on an asking price, answered all our questions, and was prompt in getting back to us by phone, text, or email. Our house was sold within a month. We were very satisfied and highly recommend him.

Thanks Dean,
Bruce and Lenora Fillion

BRUCE AND LENORA FILLION,

I used Dean Birks as my realtor several times - He has been always very open and honest with me. I value his professionalism and non pushy approach. Oh and also he loves chicken wings.

ARMENIO SARDINHA,

Client Review - After 33 years in Prince George my wife and I retired to Cranbrook to be closer to family.
We spent a great deal of time renovating our house and deciding on the best realtor to take us through the process of listing, showing and selling our home.
Dean Birks was knowledgeable about the real estate values in our neighbourhood. We were able to communicate effortlessly and quickly with Dean through his access to all forms of technology.
Dean was able to find the perfect buyer to fit with our timeline and selling price.
Now that we look back on our selling experience we realize that Dean with his contacts and professionalism made the entire process seem effortless.
We have great memories of the time and people we got to know in Prince George and now can add Dean Birks to those we were fortunate enough to get to know.

Jim/Maria Stinson

JIM & MARIA STINSON,

My experience couldn't have been better… When Dean told me buying a house was easier than buying a car, I didn't buy in at first… But all his hard work, dedication and his professionalism proved that it really was easier than buying a car! Dean is very knowledgeable in the real estate industry. As a first time home buyer, he couldn't have made the entire process any easier. He took care of arranging viewings promptly and ensured that I wasn't going to end up with something I didn't want in the end. I would refer anyone looking to buy a home to Dean anytime and won’t hesitate to contact him when I am ready to sell!

JAMES GAGNON,

Deans a very knowledgeable Realtor of both the community and properties. His low keyed no pressure approach takes the stress out of property purchase. Dean would rather not sell a house to you than sell you one that's wrong for you. We have used Dean twice and feel he is the "go to" guy.

DANIEL & RHONDA BUDD,

I have much to be thankful for in my dealings with Dean Birks. He is a pleasure to work with. Always polite and accommodating to my work shifts and never pushy. It seemed whenever I phoned with questions I always got a call back within a reasonable length of time. He had good advice and was knowledgeable on the properties I was looking at. Dean made the whole search and purchase process painless. Thanks again, Dean!

Dianne Richier

DIANNE RICHIER,

Client Review - As a first time home buyer I was very eager and excited to begin the searching process! After looking at various homes online I realized that there was no way that I could do this alone and needed to find someone who could help me through this huge step in my life. After researching potential real estate agents I came across Dean Birks. After meeting him I knew immediately that I wanted him to be my real estate agent as he was easy to talk to, was very knowledgeable, honest, and most importantly I knew he was on my side. Dean was very patient and me feel at ease when making one of the biggest decisions of my life. I would highly recommend Dean Birks to anyone looking for a real estate agent!

Thanks again,

Vanessa

VANESSA MOHNS,

Hi Dean:
Just wanted to Thank-you for the amazing way you handled not only the sale of the house but the way all my concerns were dealt with immediately. I've never sold a house before so I had a lot of questions and used your sound job knowledge. Once again Thanks.

RENA LANGLAIS,

Dean helped us at a very difficult time in the quick and efficient handling of my fathers estate. Having to take care of things on our behalf as we live on Vancouver Island, Dean showed exemplary professionalism and compassion in all his communications and dealings with us. I could not give a higher recommendation to any person!!

Thank you Dean

CLARA HYDE,

To whom it may concern

I found Dean Birks possessed expertise as a Realtor & had excellent knowledge of the current market trends. During the period of listing my house for sale, Dean kept me informed of the interest of potential buyers. He maintained a positive attitude towards the sale and guided me in making decision or adjustments to prices. These were backed with sound information.
Dean was professional and courteous at all times. His expertise as a realtor was of great value towards the sale of my house. It was a pleasant and satisfactory business experience.

I would recommend Dean as a Realtor in Prince George without hesitation.

Barb Sandberg

BARB SANDBERG,

Thanks again Dean!
Dave & Karla Crawford

DAVE & KARLA CRAWFORD,

Dean Birks provided excellent relocation real estate services to us when we moved to Prince George a couple of years ago. This included familiarizing us with the various areas of the community and different aspects of the housing market, services, schools and the many things that were important to us as a family.

When we recently needed to relocate to another city again for employment reasons, we did not hesitate to engage Dean to provide professional assistance with selling our home. He gave us solid advice and support in a timely way, and he helped set us up with another great professional realtor in our new location too.

Moving to and from cities can be an overwhelming activity. Dean helped make our transitions as smooth and efficient as possible and we greatly appreciated as well as enjoyed working with him.

Thanks, Mark and Kristine Pederson

MARK AND KRISTINE PEDERSON,

Dean Birks was the listing agent for a property we wished to view. We were so taken with how he handled the viewing that we requested Dean show all homes of interest over the next few months. We are very impressed with Dean’s exceptional ability to rapidly analyze then comment on each home’s qualities.

Dean always provided immediate response to our queries and was unrelenting in his efforts to obtain all relevant information about properties of interest. Dean was also very helpful in guiding us through the negotiation process in the purchase of our new home.

We certainly will strongly recommend Dean Birks to anyone wishing to purchase or sell their property in Prince George.

C & C Frost

COLIN FROST,

“Dean Birks is that rarity in a realtor; one who listens to what your “must have” list is while still using his knowledge and expertise to guide you in the right direction. He will show you anything that you want to see while still keeping his eyes open for your perfect solution. He puts his clients first. I will use him again whether buying or selling my next property.”

Thanks
Sherry

SHERRY SETHEN,

Thanks for the exceptional service in our recent purchase of the property on Ness Lake. On our first night we found a minor issue that at the time seemed a lot more extensive. At 11:00 PM on a Friday night going into a long weekend you promptly dropped all you were doing called the inspector and drove 40 kilometers to deal with the issue and set our minds at ease. From the beginning of our search until after we moved in the service and the assistance you have provided has been remarkable.

Thanks Again
The Grants

BRUCE GRANT,

Working with you has been a pleasure; you treated us as sellers with honesty, prompt service and respect. I feel you are knowledgeable about the current market in Prince George; you not only helped us price our home right but sold it in less than a month. So when others ask about who I would recommend I will say "If you want your house to sell quickly, at a fair price and painless as possible, don't call another agent, talk with Dean Birks!" His knowledge of Prince George real estate is great.
Thanks once again Dean.

Simone & David Allwood

SIMONE & DAVID ALLWOOD,
