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!

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.

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.

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.

MARK AND KRISTINE PEDERSON,

Dean was a great help to my husband and I buying our first home. He went above and beyond when we had some issues when we first moved in, things that he didn’t have to take care of, but he did. I would recommend Dean Birks to anyone buying or selling a home.

Thanks Nicola Lewis

NICOLA LEWIS,

We would certainly recommend Dean for any Real Estate needs. He continued to work for us even after our contract had expired and we had given up for the season. We found him very helpful, always prompt with responses to our questions no matter how inconsequential.
Thank you Dean for making our sale so stress free.

L & M Neil

LLOYD & MARILYN NEIL,

Looking for an excellent real estate agent? Look no further than Dean Birks. I want to let everybody know about the skills and natural abilities that Dean Birks brings to real estate transactions.
He has been an excellent manager in the customer service industry, with a great reputation for showing he cares not only for his customers but also for the employees that work for him. His real estate abilities include being honest when we presented him with questions regarding best approach in negotiating prices, both for the sale and purchase of our homes. He gave us vital information on what was comparable on the market at that time and what he thought the purchaser would be willing to go up and than what the seller might be willing to go down to in pricing. We have had a number of agents and Dean Birks is one we wouldn't hesitate to recommend to all our friends.

Sincerely,
Angela Wiebe

ANGELA WIEBE,

Hi Dean,
I just wanted to email you and say what a great job you did for us. I always enjoy working with you. Your enthusiasm and positive energy is great during the very stressful process of selling our home. I hope to work with you again in the future.
Thanks again.

LILLIAN ASTLEY,

Dean Birks served our family very, very well. Twenty years ago we purchased our first home with Dean's help and it was a fantastic and professional experience. This year we are moving to the Lower Mainland after 20 years of living in Prince George. Dean helped us sell our home in just 3 weeks. He is well connected, professional and full of integrity. We recommend him as a phenomenal real estate agent in Prince George.

The Goertzens

GERRY & DEBBIE GOERTZEN,

Dean was extremely helpful for us as first time home buyers, he helped us to understand some of the nuances of finding a good home. We appreciated his work!
Thanks again Dean!

RYAN & DARCI JAMES,

It was a real pleasure working with Dean on the sale of our home. We were tight on time and Dean made things happen fast and smooth. He sold our house in 5 days for a good price. I think what impressed me the most was that Dean was always available to answer questions and was quick to reply to any emails. He also has great connections to assist in financial and legal end of things. Dean Birks comes highly recommended with our family. Thank you Dean.

Merry Christmas
Patricia

PATRICIA GRATTAN,

In the spring of 2010 my husband and I contacted Dean Birks regarding bank foreclosures. Dean was very informative about the pluses and downfalls about buying a property through foreclosure. With that information we were able to decide that we were not comfortable with the procedure and would prefer to look for property using MLS listings. Dean knew what kind of property we had in mind, contacting us regularly with new listings. We found Dean to be readily available and quickly set up viewings for us. When we found a property the negotiations went smoothly and the sale was completed with ease. We highly recommend Dean Birks as a real estate agent.

Peggie and David Rusnell

PEGGIE & DAVID RUSNELL,

Working with you to sell our home was excellent. The amount of coverage you made available online regarding our listing was key to the number of showings we got immediately upon listing and made for a quick sale. You’ve definitely taken real estate transactions into the 21rst century with all the tools you make available for the electronic transfer of documents and information. This is a must in today’s market and a definite advantage in marketing our house. You were always very responsive to our requests and questions which made it a pleasure to work with you. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know that is looking at listing or purchasing real estate.

KEVIN & KIM STEWART,

Dean, you did an amazing job selling our home and finding us a new one. We are so happy with how fast everything went through and what we ended up with. We think you are a very reliable and honest realtor, who is very good at what he does. I will absolutely recommend you. Thanks again!!

Sarina and Rob

ROB & SARINA LONSDALE,

I would highly recommend Dean to my friends, family, colleagues, and others.
My initial decision to list my house with Dean was based on his professional presentation, knowledge of the area given his long term residency in PG, positive reputation, and impressive and very user friendly website & advertising. Listing with Dean was a great decision! He was accessible, provided sound advice based on market conditions, and did a great job of marketing and selling my home. Thanks Dean!

All the best Desne Hall.

DESNE HALL,

Real Estate Review - I just wanted to say I think you did a tremendous job at selling my home. You are very good at what you do and I will recommend you to anyone that needs a realtor. Thanks again Dean!!

SARINA SAARIKKO,

Dean's work is excellent... he took his time and helped me purchase an excellent investment property. My purchase was easy and Dean was great to deal with.
I can't say enough good things about how great it was to work with him.
I would recommend anyone working in the Prince George area to call Dean over any other.

KELLY PARKS,

For the past 5 years I had been dreaming of getting back into a house of my own. Through inquiries I ended up with a referral to Dean Birks.
I had been avoiding taking the plunge in actually contacting a Realator as I was unsure of myself and knowledge I had in pursuing and purchasing a home. I took a deep breath and contacted Dean. I have to say it was the best thing I did toward getting my own home back into my life! He took charge by talking with me in debt about what I was looking for in a home as well as preferred locations. He put that all together and set me up on his website link to properties that meet my criteria. It only took a few weeks and I had viewed the property I wanted! Dean explained and walked me through all that needed to be done and BANG, accepted offer.
It didn't end there. Dean kept with me by giving me referrals/options to home inspectors and lawyers. It all went so smoothly that from the time I contacted Dean until my possesion date was less than 2 months! I was thrilled!
Oh, no... It still did not end there. After we were moved and settled in Dean had contacted me by phone to check in to ask if we were doing ok and if we needed anything to feel free to contact him. Awesome job Dean and all those extras you threw in were very appreciated.
I will recommend Dean Birks to everyone I know that is looking to go into the scarey process of purchasing a home. He made it easy!

Thanks again Dean..... GREAT JOB!

Phyllis Thomas

PHYLLIS THOMAS,

Dean you are by far the best of many realtors we have worked with. You were unbelievably patient, low-pressure, no BS and went above and beyond the call of duty. Furthermore, you were fun to work with and you got our house sold! We will recommend you to everyone. Thanks for all your hard work.

Regards,
Ranjadh & Ninder Toor

RANJADH & NINDER TOOR,

I would say Dean Birks is one of the best agents in Prince George, just recently I referred some friends to him and he listed and sold there house in 3 days at a good price. I also decided to list my rental property with Dean and within a week it was sold. I was down south when the sale occurred and Dean did everything over the phone & email. So anybody who wants there home sold, I suggest calling Dean Birks.

Thanx Dean

SAR SANDHU,

We had a few realtors we were going to choose from and after we talked to Dean we knew we would hire him. He was very pleasant,  knowledgeable and always managed to get done what had to be done to achieve good results.  Dean said he would sell our house and he did. It was nice talking with him as he was always upbeat and ready to listen and help when needed.  Dean is a great realtor and a great guy.

Thks Doug Strang

DOUG STRANG,

I have had previous experiences with realtors where I was greatly dis-satisfied. When looking for a realtor it's extremely important that you know they are going to work for you and that they are going to work hard. I met Dean at a time when I needed to sell a house that a previous realtor had been unable to generate interest in. Dean's proactive approach and great tools, such as his website, found a buyer for my house at a price I was very pleased with. I have since trusted Dean with another house purchase & sale and have been extremely pleased again. I will continue to buy & sell through Dean until I work my way towards my dream house because I know that he produces results and he works with my interests at heart.

Bernadette Corrigan

BERNADETTE CORRIGAN,

Being a first time buyer, Dean made the transition into my new home very stress free and easy for my family and I, always eager to help and quick to act on requests, truly a pleasure working with Dean. (easier than buying a car)
Yvonne

YVONNE MOSDELL,

Selling a property can frequently be a nail biting experience. The realtor makes all the difference between a property sitting on the market or selling. Dean listed three properties for me this year and no matter how busy he was, he always had time to discuss my listings and to actively promote them.

Dean Birks is the one realtor in Prince George that I would highly recommend. In my experience with Dean, he has always been professional, reliable and just simply does a great job.

Thanks Dean!

Sandra Jackson

SANDRA JACKSON,

Our story started in the lower mainland of BC and we wanted to sell our home there and move to Prince George. We decided to interview several real estate companies and also different agents. We interviewed the discount and the higher end companies.

When we interviewed the Royal LePage Agent down there, we were impressed with her presentation, her diligence, and with the methods. She had our home sold with in a month and for the amount we had asked for. Our home we were told was in show room condition, and she provided a stager to help create this environment. We followed all the recommendations and it paid off.

When we relocated to Prince George we again chose a Royal LePage Agent and again we were not disappointed.

We picked Dean Birks as our representative. I put him through a lot, because originally I was considering property with a renovation to keep the price down and develop the property the way we wanted it to look. But later decided against that.

To our surprise Dean found a home in a great neighborhood with all the newly renovated features and landscape development we were looking for, and we purchased the home for under the appraised price. The location of the home and property was exactly what we were aiming for. The transition was smooth.

Thanks Dean!

From the McClures

ROLANDA AND BRUCE MCCLURE,

Real Estate Review - We recently sold our home and purchased another. John was just recovering from major surgery and we were going through a very stressful time. Dean looked after both transactions and gave us his personal attention each and every time we called. We felt that he was doing a whole lot more than just selling us a house. This is the second time we have had Dean for our Realtor and he just keeps getting better.
I would recommend him to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling. He is a very professional, kind, courteous individual and provided excellent service.

Thanks Dean
John & Brenda

JOHN & BRENDA,

We would like to thank Dean Birks for the wonderful, dedicated service we received while working to purchase our recreational property. Dean worked late into the night and very early in the morning (on a weekend!) to make our deal go through and we cannot thank him enough. To Dean we were not just "the next sale"; he treated us with great care and respect, even after our sale was finished.

Thank you, Dean. We recommend you to everyone and you will definitely be our realtor the next time we buy or sell property!

Quin & Heather McGowan

QUIN & HEATHER MCGOWAN,

In Prince George Real Estate Dean Birks has proven to me that he is the exceptional type of person you want on your real estate team. His professionalism goes beyond anything you would expect and then some. As I began our relationship in real estate matters he has proven to be my left arm and assisting me with details that I could not attend to because I am an out of town investor. I would not hesitate to recommend Dean to anyone seeking a leader in his profession.
Thanks again Dean for all your help and going beyond and outside the box.
Ed Stonehouse

ED STONEHOUSE,

We want to say Thank you so much to Dean Birks for being the best realtor one would have to deal with. Dean definitely made our house buying experience one to remember. Dean was always there to answer all our questions and made all the time in the world for us. We recommend Dean to anyone who wants an easy selling or buying of your house. He also made us feel welcomed when we moved into our new house. Thank you once again Dean. You're the best realtor we have met, and come highly recommended.

Thanks
Vic and Kris Lewington

VIC & KRIS LEWINGTON,

Dean,
We appreciate you patience, professionalism and kindness. You helped us find a home and we are very happy and satisfied.
You are the best realtor by far.

DR. WILLIAM OSEI,

Kim and I would like to thank Dean for his patience, as he always made himself available to show us homes. He was on top of things and called us immediately if he thought the property matched our needs. His knowledge of computers and the internet is also fantastic, which I believe really gives him the edge in marketing of his listings. Above all his integrity is what sets him apart from other realtors. I have traded many properties and dealt with many realtors before hooking up with Dean, and know the importance of having someone take pride in doing things right, not just right now.

SHANDY STOWE,

'My fiance and I decided about 6 months ago to purchase our first
home, which sounds easier than it was. We were completely clueless.
After hearing about Dean's website, we ended up contacting Dean to assist us with our affairs. Dean was perfect. He seemed to possess a competitive edge and a well established business sense which eased the stress of being a first time buyer and allowd us to find our home within a week. Thank you Dean'

JESSE PRISEMAN,

When it comes to the Prince George Real Estate market Dean has been a great agent to work with; I have purchased several investment properties using his service. The way Dean does business is sound and ethical; I really appreciated the professionalism Dean showed during my transactions. I will continue to use Dean’s services in the future, and would recommend him to anyone in the market for a personal residence or an investment property.

CHARLES NUNDAL,

We were very happy with the service you gave us to help buy the home we were renting. Even though you were the seller's realtor you did not hesitate to answer any of our questions we threw at you. You always returned phone calls promptly and we were very comfortable knowing everything was turning out. Thank you for the great service.

Carol and Roy Slater

CAROL & ROY SLATER,

Thanks to Dean for finding us the perfect investment property. He wasted no time in locating exactly what we were looking for and his advice was invaluable. Looking forward to doing business with him again in the very near future.
