Dean is trustworthy, professional and knowledgeable. He guided us through the process of selling our home in a way that gave us a low-stress experience due to his years of expertise. His warmth as a person made every meeting pleasant and I think was also an advantage in negotiating. I highly recommend him.

Helped me buy and sell homes

I had the pleasure of working with Valerie Girouard of HomeSmart Professionals. My husband and I just purchased our first home and Valerie guided us every step of the way. I had many questions and each one was addressed promptly whenever needed, day or night. She went above and beyond for us. Now we are in a beautiful home because of her hard work. I highly recommend her and the deTonnancourt team!

Helped me buy home

This was our fourth transaction with Dean which says a lot right there. Dean is someone we trust and respect very much. During this home search we thought we had found the home we wanted to make ours. Thankfully Dean gently and professionally brought to light items about the home we over looked because we were so "smitten" with remodeled interior. He had the honesty and integrity to walk a away from a quick sale because he knew that was not our "forever" home. Dean found our "forever" home, a home that I never imagined we would find in our price range. We wake up to a lake view every morning, our kids kayak and fish every weekend and our home has become the place for family holidays ( to be determined if that is good or bad yet hahahaha). Dean is a true professional and his staff is just amazing.

Dean and his team have extensive knowledge of the market. It was so easy working with them. They are friendly and always helpful. They kept us informed of the process and helped us expedite the selling process. They helped us stage our home correctly to increase its appeal to buyers and they helped us determine the best course of action for accepting and negotiating offers.You will not find a more knowledgeable or harder working group of people in the industry. I would highly recommend Home Smart Professionals to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

We were referred to Dean by good friends of ours and we couldn't be happier with the recommendation. From the moment we first contacted Dean, we could tell that him and his team were exactly what we were looking for and would be there through it all to assist us in the sale of our home. From advice on pricing for a quick sell, navigating through the hurdles of a government relocation to providing us with the most wonderful, personable stagers and professional photographer around, we owe it to Dean and his group that we received multiple offers on our home within days of listing. Through their professionalism and honest, genuine excitement about working with us, they made a stressful move so much easier on us and we would highly recommend Dean and his team to anyone!

Dean and his team were fantastic. Valerie Girouard was our main point of contact on this transaction and was MORE than professional. Very personable and cared very much for us throughout the entire process as the sale of our home was a very emotional affair. We would highly recommend Dean and his team for all our real estate needs.

Helped me buy and sell homes

Dean and his team were great in helping us sell our home and buy a new one. The marketing of our old home was tremendous and lead to a quick sale. They worked quickly to find us a new home, which we love, and was able to negotiate the price down quite a bit.
