Client Reviews

Dean has been a phenomenal realtor for my wife Katie and I.  We have been working with Dean for over a year in buying and selling various properties. He’s easy to get in contact with, and is always available when we’ve called-even on weekends or when he is out of town.  He knew that we are both very busy people. He quickly learned our tastes and filtered properties down to ones that would fit our needs the best, making the most out of our time.

We have used other realtors in the past, and have found Dean to be superior to anybody else we have worked with.

I would highly recommend Dean to anyone looking for an exceptional experience when it comes to buying or selling properties.

"When your dealing with a real estate agent, Dean is an exemplary of what a real estate professional should stand for.  Along with his professionalism and years of experience, which lends to a smooth transition from selling your home to buying a new one, his interpersonal skills speak volumes! He's not just a realtor, he's truly a people guy! Thanks Dean for your unmatched service you have provided to me and my family!"

Leah Zavaglia


We are thrilled with the service received from Dean, both in purchasing a home five years ago in a city we had never visited, and in which we knew no one, and more recently selling it with him. He listened to our needs, and only took us to homes that were close to our criteria; in location, and required features. It was important to me that we used a realtor who was a long time resident of Prince George and could honestly guide us in the pros and cons of lifestyle, location, and local building materials/methods used. I would not hesitate to recommend Dean in buying and selling a home. He kept us confident and encouraged when the selling process unexpectedly took a lot longer than anticipated. It was easy to trust his knowledge. He was never pushy and always answered questions and calls promptly.


Dean was an amazing realtor! My partner and I were first time buyers with a lot of questions and anxiety involving the purchase of our first home. We had specific requirements for what we were looking for and he catered to those very well. Dean was very professional and despite being a very popular realtor in town, he always made us feel like a priority throughout our search for a home. He worked round the clock to help us get our perfect place! We would definitely recommend him to anyone buying or selling in Prince George.


I have had the privileged of utilizing the professional services of Dean Birks with the sale of 3 residences and the purchase of 1. Dean's knowledge and demeanor has always managed to reduce my stress and allowed me to focus on the important issues. Dean started out as a very good realtor who I now consider a friend. If you want your purchase or sale to be completed by a professional effective realtor with an abundance of local knowledge and contacts, I suggest you choose Dean Birks.


What better person to find the pulse of the real estate market in the Prince George Area, then a 2nd generation real estate professional that will respond to your many phone calls, emails, providing listings, touring the city to areas you have in mind, providing useful feedback, and there to the end as one reaches closure on the ultimate property deal. We have used the professional services of Dean Birks for over 30 years when it came to purchasing various lots thru out the City of Prince George.  I would recommend you give Dean a call.



We found Dean to be very knowledgeable about the real estate market in Prince George.  He is very calm, relaxed and always available when you try to contact him about something.  We were fairly stressed when we sold our home and his attitude was always confident and calming to our frayed nerves.  My husband and myself would definitely recommend Dean to anyone who is either looking to buy in Prince George or sell their home.

Thanks again Dean, you are awesome!  Have a great day,

Shelley and Bert Ettinger


"When we decided to relocate from Winnipeg to Prince George, we needed a Realtor that really knew the market and was going to look out for our best interests.  Being from out of province, we really didn't know what the market was like in PG.  Dean immediately presented himself as a no-nonsense professional. In all correspondence, Dean was attentive, prompt, and cut to the chase. He respected our needs, understood the challenges we faced with our relocation, and helped us put together and execute a strategy that really worked out. Dean is direct, to the point, yet at all times courteous and professional. Dean landed us in the right house, and all with a quick closing and possession date. Dean referred us the right local professionals to help with the close, knew exactly what to do, and was very accommodating with our travel schedule when doing the house hunting. If you are looking for a no-nonsense professional to get you into the new house that you need, we highly recommend Dean. We feel we wouldn't be in this property without him, and are very thankful that we decided to use him when we moved to PG. Thanks so much Dean for everything you have done for us. Your good work really helped ease the stress with our relocation. Chris and Holly".

In 2012 my wife and I moved to Prince George from Regina Saskatchewan. Dean Birks was recommended to us by another agent and he was instrumental in assisting us with purchasing a new home that was only partially completed. Due to my work commitments we were not able to remain in Prince George to oversee the completion of the home including the installation of a heating system and appliances. Dean ensured that the changes we requested were completed by the builders so our home was ready when we arrived months later.
Once again we used Dean's services to assist us with selling our Prince George home in 2018 after I took another position in Saskatchewan. His understanding of the market trends and use of multi media marketing methods brought an impressive number of potential buyers to our home. Dean made sure that the process was not overly disturbing to our day to day lives and he was able to find us the right buyer at the right time. We were please with the selling price of our home and very happy with Dean's ability to get documents prepared and signed in a timely manner. This included our ability to accept an offer to purchase over my smart phone while visiting friends at the lake?
Overall, Mr. Birks has provided us with a level of service that we are unlikely to see again but would certainly recommend to anyone wanting to either buy or sell a home in the Prince George area.
David and Diana Doncaster.

My wife and I have used Dean to buy and sell a couple of different houses now. We've always found Dean to be very professional and easy to work with. He has excellent knowledge of the market and trends in real estate. He has been very accurate in pricing of our purchases and houses we have sold. It is no surprise that he is one of the top realtors in PG year after year. I would recommend Dean to all family, friends, or anyone looking for a realtor.

Sukh and Mutto Toor


“Start the Car!” and have Dean Birks help you with your real estate needs.

We have called upon Dean on five different occasions over the last thirty plus years for our real estate listings, viewings, questions, opinions, and general knowledge ideas relating to the real estate market in and around the Prince George and Area.  We are not bashful to refer family and friends with their questions or concerns, to check Dean out.

Even if Dean is out of town, he has support people to cover the most immediate needs and then Dean does return our calls once he returns, to see if there is anything else he can do for us.

Dean’s your real estate person, give him a call.

Hilda & Johan


Dean was our realtor when we listed our principal residence, in Prince George, 6 years ago. He had it sold within one week! We had no hesitation in using his services, this past fall, when we wanted to sell our cabin. He is knowledgeable, professional and keeps you up-to-date with the goings on of your property. Your questions and messages are responded to promptly. We highly recommend Dean as your realtor. While it did take longer than a week, our cabin sold, and at a fair price. Thanks, Dean!


Thank you Dean for the excellent service from you in the selling of my home and purchasing my condo. I always felt I could call you, and you kept me up to date on what was happening. I have already recommended you to a friend and would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else. You were kind , patient and knowledgeable.

Pat Sawchuk

Pat Sawchuk,

The process of selecting and purchasing a home within tight timelines in a community we were not familiar with was an arduous undertaking.  On recommendation from a colleague, we contacted Dean and the stress was immediately diminished.  Dean explained the local market, listened to our needs and expectations and set us up with the ability to monitor market activity until we arrived in Prince George to begin viewing homes.  He treated us with the utmost respect, offering appropriate input, suggestions and community insight, enabling us to make well informed decisions.  Dean dedicated as much time to us as was necessary to ensure we were successful in purchasing the right home within our allotted time frame.  It truly was a pleasure having Dean as our Realtor.  He clearly exemplifies professionalism of the industry and sincerely cares about his clients.

Brock and Rhonda Linaker

Brock and Rhonda Linaker,

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.

William Crawford


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.

Niki Robichaud


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


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.


Kevin & Crystal Martin


"I was pleased to have had Dean's assistance on the estate sale of my mother's house.  Dean's practical advice and positive outlook made the whole sale process relatively stress free and contributed significantly to a very successful result."

Regards, John


“Dean provided valuable real estate services when selling property for me.  It was a difficult time for me and Dean handled it in a professional and helpful manor.  His advice and recommendations on the aspects of selling and what was necessary made the transaction seamless.  Thank you for everything.”



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


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!

Muriel and Keith


Dean was very thorough in explaining how everything worked in an easy to understand manner. He let me have time to think when I needed it and was available quickly when we got the ball rolling. Dean was always happy to help via email or text and recommended excellent people for mortgage broker and home inspector. I felt like I could trust Dean to work in my best interest at all times because he was transparent every step of the way. I am very happy that I chose Dean Birks as my real estate agent.

Joseph Jeffery


We were very happy with the service we received from Dean. He was efficient, straightforward and friendly. He did a great job selling our house.

Margaret Dunlop


Dean was recommended to us by our local realtor, to sell our rental property in the Prince George market. We found Dean to be very responsive to our inquiries, and concerns. The property sold quickly, and Dean provided valuable advice along the way. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dean as a realtor.

Regards - Naomi and Kelly Kosolofski


"Dean Birks sold us our first home and was absolutely excellent! He was very patient with us and offered excellent advice along the way. Always professional and organized, and he always takes his phone. We will definitely be calling Dean to sell our home in the future!"

Thanks again,

Julie Sorensen


I have used Dean in my last 3 purchases and would recommend him if you are looking for a knowledgeable Realtor. I have always found him to provide great service and valuable insight.


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


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


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.


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.


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.


"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."


“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!


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!


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.

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.

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


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.


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


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


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


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


Dean Birks was very helpful in helping me sell my home and purchasing my condo. His very relaxed personality was a joy to see and made everything very easy and uncomplicated. I would recommend him to anyone.

thanks Dean
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


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.
