Dean handles every detail. He was one step ahead of any of my questions. He was able to give me contact information for my move, gas and electric, painter, handyman, electrician, etc. He has all of these contact people. He is a one stop man and I recommend him highly.
Dean Provence is a particularly helpful and knowledgeable expert who looks out for the little guy and doesn't sleep until he finds you the perfect home. We've bought two homes (one in 2003, one in 2007) in Seaside through Dean and sold one in the depth of the housing crisis (2007). During the crisis, he and his real estate partner, who is his mother, worked tirelessly and helped us sell our home for a profit in just two months. Each transaction was relatively painless because of his expertise. Dean definitely helped us open the door to a new life and is an all-around great guy.
We found Dean (and his Mother) a terrific team! We survived 1 1/2 years of searching, after letting our other realtor go, they made it happen! We surveyed multiple houses, and they zeroed in on our needs.
Dean is simply off the scale. We could give all the standard "nice guy" stories, but it's simpler just to note these facts. (1) As Dean took us through the first few houses, he somehow noted exactly the features that attracted us. Those features: plenty of off-street parking, gas stove, walking distance to stores, no pet odors. When a house exactly matching these came on the market, he got us to it quickly. (2) Dean pulled all the right strings on a complicated short sale. This purchase involved an under-water mortgage and also an under-water second mortgage. We have no idea how he pulled the deal together. (3) Dean helped us with complications relating to valuation history, seller sensitivities, and bank appraisals. It is quite remarkable that our final purchase price was $45K below our initial offer. (Realtor fees are proportion to the selling price, which means that Dean put our interests ahead of his own.) (4) Dean guided this deal to a quick conclusion at the end of the year. The timing had no consequence for us or for Dean, but it had big tax implications for the seller. This was a nice act of decency for the under-water seller. Our experiences in selling our previous home in another state made us appreciate exactly what Dean had done.
Dean went above and beyond in helping me to research and purchase a property that I was interested in. It is rare anymore to have someone respond in a timely and friendly manner to begin with, and then to excel beyond that and go the extra mile that I didn't even know existed was amazing. No half-hearted inattentive service with him. I would recommend Dean to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.

Dean has been the best professional I have dealt with since I began my air quality business on the Bay over 10 years ago. He has very high values and is as honest a person I know.
Dean is so easy to work with! This was the first house I ever bought and he walked me through every step. He always returned my calls and emails promptly. Believe me, I had a lot! He had excellent advise and suggestions about areas I knew nothing about. He always made me feel like he had my best interests in mind. I love my house and my neighborhood. Thank you Dean.
