Dean helped us get our Dream Home! My husband and I were looking to purchase our first home in Monterey in the middle of the 2020 pandemic. We knew this would not be an easy task due to Covid, but luckily our Realtor Dean Provence made the entire process a breeze! Dean's extensive knowledge of the Monterey Peninsula housing market helped us narrow down the right home for us. When we found our dream home, there were multiple offers and I truly believe if it weren't for Dean's lightning speed response time and skilled negotiation tactics, we might have missed out! Since we were first-time homebuyers, we really appreciated how Dean helped us navigate the whole home buying process with patience and understanding. He was always available if we had questions and took time out of his schedule to attend our home inspection and walked us through all the necessary steps of purchasing a home. If yo…

We have just purchased our first home! And we could not have been happier to have Dean Provence as our realtor. Not only is Dean a friendly, professional, knowledgeable person, he also provided us with much-needed and appreciated insight and support. It was a bonus that he came highly recommended by two trusted friends. We found the home-buying process quite overwhelming and an emotional roller coaster at times, but Dean was always there to answer our questions, put things in perspective, and generally get us through it all! Can’t say we would want to go through this again anytime soon but Shankle Realty, and in particular Dean Provence, would be our choice. We highly recommend Dean to guide you through the home-buying process!

Dean was very important in this process. His knowledge of the market made the listing price realistic. His internet presentation was fantastic. Of the seven offers in five days, he allowed four of them to increase their bid over a three-day period if they wanted. Keeping the funds safe from hackers was reassuring because he knew all of the backup people he was dealing with. I highly recommend him.

Shari D.

You surpassed my expectations. You helped organize all of the repairs needed to the property before the sale and made sure everything was done properly. You even made recommendations on paint color and trim options. The house sold for more than the appraisal price so I couldn't be happier. If we ever have another house to sell or one we need to buy, I'll be giving you a call.

Joshua K.

We engaged Dean to represent us in selling our home that had been in the family for forty years. Dean presented multiple offers and adeptly handled the negotiations. Very responsive, he sought our input at every step of the way, providing guidance when necessary, listening when appropriate.
