Below, you'll find information that will help you get to know me better. References from past clients.
I consider the satisfaction of my clients to be my greatest achievement, and take pride in my high volume of repeat business and referrals.
You were amazing Dean and thank you so much for selling my home. I will refer you to everyone I know.
Thank you - Katlyn
After un-successfully using other realtors we called on Dean to help us out. We will definately recommend your services to anyone who will listen. You really did make it a stress free time experience selling our investment property. Your calm but determined dispostion was welcome.
Christine and Peter Newall
Dean is very professional, approachable, and knowledgeable. From the first day we met him he worked diligently to find us a home that suited us perfectly! When it came to selling our house he was equally outstanding! I recommend him to all of my friends!
Doug & Jennifer Scott
We go with Dean Birks as a realtor because he is as professional as it gets! There is no substitute for experience, he knows what he is doing period.
Dan & Renee Pineau
After an extensive search to find the best realtor in the industry, we came across Dean Birks and we were thoroughly impressed. Dean’s honest no nonsense approach, dedication to his clients, knowledge of the real estate market and expertise speaks volumes. Thanks to Dean, our house sold in less than a week! Thank you Dean for keeping our minds at ease throughout the whole process and for the exceptional customer service provided to our family.
If your searching for an exemplary real estate agent, we definitely recommend you give Dean a call.
Brad and Danielle Butterwick
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!"
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".
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
I was introduced to Dean Birks through my son, who had accessed Dean for real estate services to help him purchase his present home several years ago. Dean recently provided invaluable assistance to me in the purchase of a house in the city of Prince George. Dean was very helpful to both of us. Dean is very knowledgeable about the real estate market. He is hard working and he was always available to help with any problems or questions that arose during the transactions.
I found working with Dean easy. There was no pressure to buy and I felt I could take my time to look for a house that really met my family's needs. He was professional yet approachable and knowledgeable about the Prince George Area. It was a good experience.
We had the good fortune to meet Dean when we decided to sell our home. Dean took us through the process with the utmost professionalism and understanding. He was very knowledgeable and forthright about what we needed to do in preparation to sell. The house sold in a matter of days!! Ray and I hoped the house would be purchased by a family as we had almost 30 years of raising a family and making wonderful memories. We were so happy when Dean confirmed a family would be making their own memories.
Was a pleasure dealing with you Dean – best of wishes to you
Anne and Ray
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."
“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.
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.
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!"
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.
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
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.
John & Brenda
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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
"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.
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
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.
"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."
Ivan and 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
Dean is a very professional and accurate appraisal of my home and it sold within $1500 of his suggested listing price. "Job well done."
“Dean Birks had two offers on the table for our home within two weeks of listing. From start to finish, Dean was an exemplary professional who got the job done with ease and clarity. A true joy to work it.”
Alex Ng, DBA and Franzi Ng, EdD
Client Review - I had some property, and with aging life changes a recommendation was to list with Dean Birks. He kept me apprised of current market conditions on a regular basis, was professional in all of our meetings ,emails, and phone conversations.
In future real estate dealings I would recommend Dean to my families and friends, knowing they would have a positive outcome in all real estate transactions.
“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
We found Dean very pleasurable to deal with the sale and purchase of our new home in Prince George. Always available to answer any questions and concerns. If your looking for a realtor that knows Prince George real estate call Dean.
Thanks again Deaner.
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
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.
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
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.
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
“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.”
My husband and I were both very impressed with the professional and courteous service we received from Dean Birks. He made our house-hunting experience easy and we would highly recommend him to any one looking for a Realtor.
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
"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"
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
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.
We want to thank you so much for helping us with the sale of our home. Your professionalizm and expertise was beyond our expectations. We always felt you were there with our best interests in mind. We have - and will continue to recommend your excellent services. It was truly a pleasure to get to know you and thank you again for your excellent service.
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
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.
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!
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.
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.
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
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
“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.”
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
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!
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.
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
Randy and 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!!!
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.
Bruce and Kathy Kidd
My husband and I were debating on moving to Prince George and Dean Birks made our decision easy. He was very knowledgeable about the city and each residential area that it really made us feel comfortable. With Dean’s help we have a beautiful house in an area we love!
We’re very happy with the over and above service we received from Dean on the purchase of our new home. Dean was very eager on researching and providing us with available properties, taking time to show us difference properties, he made our deal happen. It was a pleasure to deal with such a efficient, diligent and sincerely nice person… we couldn’t say enough good about him.
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!
Blah, blah, blah, ya he's good. Just wished he had more hair and moved to Kamloops.!
PS - I would hire Dean anytime.
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
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.
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.
"My wife and I were very impressed with Dean when
he sold all of our investment properties and settled us into our new
Mia and 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
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.
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
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!
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
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.
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
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!
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
Prince George BC
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
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.
Real Estate Review - Thanks Dean for your help finding us our home. We liked that you always were available, no pressure to buy, very flexible hours for meetings/showing homes. Your knowledge about the Prince George real estate market and you had good insight into court-ordered sales, asbestos, structural /load bearing input, mold remediation, wood foundations, lawyer and bank processes.
Thanks again Dean!
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
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
“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 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.
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
Dean Birks knows his business and the Prince George market really well. He is professional, approachable and provides great advice. He made our relocation as smooth as possible from start to finish.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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!!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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
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.
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)
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.
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.
From the McClures
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.
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
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.
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.

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.
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.
'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'
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.
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.
