We contacted Dean and within a few days he had a buyer who made an offer. Dean kept us informed of various events as the time to closing approached. He returned all of our calls and was very professional throughout this whole process. We'd use him again without question.
Selling a home was a new and scary experience for our family. Dean was very good in answering our questions and dealing with our concerns in an honest and upfront way. He was very straightforward and gave us honest opinions and educated, experienced information to help us make good decisions and navigate a new challenge. Part of our choice in working with Dean was his experience, not only in residential settings, but more importantly, rural residences and environs. We also appreciate his accessibility and his willingness to stay in close contact and to keep us as informed as possible. We will use Dean again if the need arises.
You did a great job for us selling our land and made the process very painless. If we ever sell our house or one of our friends is looking for a Realtor, you will be the first person we call!
We looked on our own for over a year and then we met Dean and found a wonderful place within a month. He knew a lot about the Kansas habitat, which was interesting as well as helpful. He had no problem trudging through the woods with us and checking out the lay of the land, which was important to us. Dean looked out for us during the negotiations, making sure the issues we had with the property and home were addressed. He did an all around great job for us and we felt he always had our best interest at heart.
Our list of "wants" was not an easy list to accomplish with our budget, but Dean was up to the challenge! We figured we'd have to settle for a house on a small 5-10 acre plot that also had both a barn and a shop were probably mere pipe-dreams. But Dean came through and helped us purchase a beautiful 21 acre farm, with a well-kept house, barn, shop, a few outbuildings and even a pond! It was a dream come true and is absolutely perfect for our family! He took the time to answer all of our questions and kept us informed through the whole process. Everything went so smoothly that we were even able to close early. As long as Dean is a Realtor, we will never use another one!! Thank you for all your help, Dean!
After Dean showed us several properties, we quickly realized the extent of his knowledge and professionalism. His approach involved absolutely no pressure and his advice was sound and based on relevant facts in the market place. We purchased a property after several months and about a year and a half later decided to sell it because it no longer fit our plans. We went back to Dean and he successfully marketed it. Since then, our son used Dean to find a rural property and we worked with him again to purchase 80 acres in eastern Kansas for an investment. When we resell this property, we plan to give Dean an exclusive contract to market the property. We highly recommend Dean for anyone seeking to buy or sell rural property in Kansas.
He did an excellent job in marketing our farm via both the print media and the internet. Through these two media he communicated the economic value and the true beauty of our land. His knowledge, communication skills, and love of farm land, wildlife, and nature came through in the presentation of our land. Dean keeps up-to-date on land values/recent sales and has outstanding negotiation skills. He is that rare real estate agent that works very hard, is totally ethical, and always available to this clients on a moments notice. Dean Goodell - Realtor is a total package that allowed us to realize the sales target for our land.
We can never thank him enough for finding such a "unique property" for us and look forward to many years of birdwatching, prairie walking and discussion of conservation issues with Dean.
We were first time home and property buyers. Will be forever grateful for Dean helping us navigate the buying process his knowledge and expertise helped tremendously with our stress and knowing he had our best interest from day one. Thank You Dean, we love our home and property. We are extremely grateful for your honesty, humbleness and patience.
In the intervening time we've come to know that Dean is not only a wildlife aficionado but also a conservationist and Realtor par excellence. We owe Alan an abiding debt for that referral. The right superlatives don't exist to describe Dean's diligence and patience in leading us to a very 'unique property'.
We chose Dean as our real estate agent to sell our property near Lawrence. My wife had used Dean 8 years ago when she bought this property and was very happy with his service. Needless to say Dean went above and beyond for us during the Selling and closing process. He was always quick to answer the phone, text, and email. He made it so easy to get our home sold even though we were out of state. If we move back to Kansas or Missouri we will use him again. Life Long Happy Customers.
(apx $1 million) Never dreamed it would sell so fast and for so close to asking price. You really went above and beyond to help us out. As women with little farm knowledge, you made it simple. Took care of everything. We would recommend you to everyone. Nice to know there are still good, honest people. With today's Internet marketing it's more important than ever that a Realtor be a good photographer and take photos to show a property at it's best. The pictures Dean put online may just be the reason our farm Sold so fast!
Dean listened to our dreams, and helped us locate the farmland that would allow us to begin building our ideal farm. He was open to new and different ideas, and paid close attention to what we were looking for. He has continued to keep us informed of other properties that might interest us, without making us feel pressured or obligated. We have recommended Dean to family members also looking for their dream property, and would heartily recommend him to anyone wishing to buy or sell property. His professionalism combined with commitment and friendliness is a rare commodity in today's world.
Dean promptly responded and started searching for us. Since we knew nothing about purchasing land, Dean helped us through all the steps, keeping our best interests at heart. He was patient with our many questions and very knowledgeable. After we closed on the land he said to call anytime with any concerns or questions on taking care of the property. Dean will be the first person we call if we decide to buy or sell land again, and will highly recommend him to our family and friends.
We were not a large client just some folks looking for a home but Dean was always on the job for us. I honestly felt like we were his only clients. He listened to our needs and delivered. Consummately patient. He was encouraging, made hard choices and disappointments bearable and brought a level of joy to our experience that I am convinced we simply would not have found elsewhere. It is obvious Dean is doing something he loves to do and has a God given gift for it. Thanks Dean. We love our new house!
Tracts of native grass are difficult to find, as they rarely come up for sale. Dean, who has extensive knowledge of prairie and of native plants, recently found 80 lovely acres for us to purchase. Dean has previously acted as our agent in finding land farther South in Kansas, and he has continued to advise and assist us for years after the sale. He is a man of great integrity and adheres to strict ethical principles. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have found Dean.
Dean was thorough, knowledgeable, persistent and great to work with. He was very flexible with his schedule to accommodate requests I made to go look at property. Dean was willing to contact other Realtors to get important information prior to looking at property. He knows his industry well and does a great job helping a buyer locate a piece of property. I would highly recommend Dean Goodell if you are looking to buy a piece of property.
In 2 weeks, Dean found us the home and land of our dreams! We were so pleased with his warm, friendly, caring approach to our home purchase. When my mother wanted to move closer, I referred her to him instantly. Dean was able to find her the perfect new home of her dreams! If we ever move again, Dean will be the first person we will call!
With Dean’s creative marketing, he kept it competitive during the sale and professional for all that showed interest in purchasing the properties. Dean keeps up on the value of land and had the properties priced right for a fair conclusion for all. By working closely and communicating effectively with the local Title companies, when the day of Closing arrived, the process was free of any snags and concluded without drama. Our Family was able to move on knowing all were treated fairly, everybody had an equal chance for the purchase, and the transactions were crisp, clean and professionally handled. We have full confidence in Dean and his knowledge and professionalism.
Dean showed us many properties in many counties and was very patient until we found just the right place, We listed our home in town with Dean and helped us find the right person for our home. He always had our best interest at heart, always pointing out things we should be aware of when buying property and selling a house. While we hope this is our last move, if circumstances change and we need a Realtor we will definitely contact Dean. Thank you for all of your guidance to help us find the perfect spot for us and our horses.
Dean is very hard working and researched many properties as a buyers agent. Dean quickly understood what we were looking for and kept us busy by presenting properties that he knew we would be interested in until we found the one that was just right. As a sellers agent, Dean has presented our house well and has generated considerable interest in our home even in these difficult times.
Our first meeting and conversation was to have a market analysis done on the land to determine a price to list it. He was accurate and honest with his comps and we ended up selling right in the middle of his analysis. It just happened to be the exact number I always felt it was worth. Since our first meeting to the closing Dean was patience and precise with the entire transaction. Very knowledgeable with the area in general and especially in regard to real estate.
We reached out to Dean and he showed us the property. The moment we saw it we knew this property had been prepared for us. We were able to communicate remotely and Dean was always very responsive to keep the purchase moving forward. We are so ready to start our dream and we are thankful to Dean for all he did to make the transaction smooth and easy. Could not have gone any better! We family members who have since listed property with Dean to sell and once again his responsiveness and efficiency is greatly appreciated.
He was always readily available to answer any questions and provide continual updates on potential buyers as well as marketing/advertising materials. The materials such as the video and photo footage provided were of great quality and assisted with the advertising and sale of the property. There are a lot of Realtors out there, but his honesty, trustworthiness and patience during the process sets him apart from others. He will make the process simple and stress free and will ensure you receive an offer that fits what your property deserves!
Dean was very patient with me and with his experience was able to sell the land at the price that I wanted. I am very grateful for Dean's help and pray for his continuous success
