In our search for a new home, we fortuitously found Edward Dean and engaged him as our realtor. He proved to be the best decision we could have made. His constantly positive attitude, honest opinions, patience, and diligence makes him an ideal agent.
We worked with Edward for over 9 months and saw 40-50 properties. Throughout the process, he clearly explained all the important and relevant details and what to expect without overloading us with superfluous information. We were so well supported by Edward and never once felt pressure to commit to a home; he offered gentle guidance and didn’t hesitate to point out potential problems that we had overlooked in our newness to the process. He was a quick study when it came to finding properties that checked all our boxes and seamlessly adapted as our wished evolved. It was clear from day one that Edward’s only priority was to help us find a well-constructed home that would make us happy. It didn’t matter how long it took or how many properties he would have to visit to make it happen. He once told us, “I’m in it for the long game, my hope is to be your realtor for life.” For us, he certainly earned that privilege.
Most impressively, once we found a house we loved, he walked us through the complicated last steps, dealt with many inspectors and contractors, recommended strategies to expedite the process, and pushed all parties to a successful close in record time. His communication and anticipation of potential snags helped us feel comfortable and prevented any holdups.
If you are considering purchasing or selling a home or condo, please talk to Edward and Jennifer Dean.
Edward and his team are incredible!
We were really fortunate to meet him and his wife. He is one of the most hardworking and responsive people we’ve ever met.
Our property in mission valley needed to be sold asap and we had some glitches with renovations that we’ve done there. Of course, Edward provided several immediate options how to resolve all the issues and it worked! We sold the property at the price it was listed for and within several weeks.
He provided us with a huge selection of properties that suited our needs and was also very patient in showing us every single one. And once we found our place he secured it and bargained the price for us.
Bottom line Edward is likely one of the best realtors out there: professional, patient, smart. Don’t look further!
I had the good fortune of meeting Edward at an open house before I had moved to San Diego. I worked with him for the better part of a year seeing approximately 100 different homes before settling on a house that met all of my pretty demanding list.
I have worked with several real estate agents in the past 10 years, and I can honestly say that Edward is one of hardest working agents and hardest working people I have met. He has meticulous attention to detail and is extraordinarily patient. He was up to the task of taking me out for hours at a time on at least 20 different occasions. House hunting is not always the most fun task, but throughout I always had a very pleasant experience because of Edward’s patient demeanor. Even when we were looking at our 90th home, never did I feel any pressure. He was able to not only deal with me (I can be very particular and demanding) but also my entire family on several occasions.
Once we decided on a property is when Edward’s experience as a lawyer and his meticulous attention was really an asset. We were dealing with new construction and he was able to navigate our negotiations with our home builder with ease. He was available at all hours throughout the escrow process and always went above and beyond in order to make the process smooth and stress free. Despite my work schedule being unpredictable, Edward made every effort to accommodate my requests for inspections and appointments with various parties.
Edward was truly an asset in dealing with the lender, the escrow company, and the seller. Nowadays with many discount real estate brokers, I very glad to have Edward as my buyer’s agent. He worked tirelessly for me to ensure that I got my dream home as close to perfect as possible. Not only is he a great real estate agent, he is an all around good guy and now a trusted friend. I cannot recommend him more highly.
