Dean helped us both sell our townhouse and purchase our new home. He was great through the entire process, and took the time to understand our timing constraints and financial goals from both a selling and buying perspective. He took on all communication with our buyers and the seller of our new house and managed all negotiations very well. When it came to inspection items needing fixing on our new home, Dean took it upon himself to make sure everything got done on time and was done well. Thank you Dean for all of your help!

Dean is competent and assisted in a variety of aspects of the sale. He provided qualified contractors, cleaning services and an assessment of the property needs. Dean was respectful of our (the sellers) goals. He was an excellent sounding board for assessing the market. Finally, he was a very good liaison between the prospective buyers and myself. Best yet, everyone was very happy with the sales process and end results.

“If you’re like most people you have a busy life and want to keep it simple when it comes to selling real estate. Two things really matter in this quest; You need a real estate agent that maximizes your net proceeds while handling all the small things that are out of your comfort zone. Dean was amazing throughout the entire process as he worked with this end in mind. He delivered on every single commitment he made to me with a profound level of professionalism. In the end, his efforts found highly motivated and qualified buyers that were able to close in near record time.
The following list includes the specific actions Dean took to make my sale a success;
1. I was going to complete a $30k remodel. Dean advised during the walk-through that a deep cleaning, small repairs, and high quality staging was all that was needed. I took his advice. This saved me at least $25k and in the end allowed the new owners to pick the finishings of their choice.
2. I was working full time. The repairs and cleaning, though small, just needed to be done. I negotiated a price with Dean, we made a deal, and everything was done in less than two weeks and I did not lift a finger. Amazing!
3. Staging is a must when selling a nice home. Dean has working relationships with key staging companies and helped coordinate the staging in record time at a very competitive price. It was the best staging work I’ve ever seen and was critical to the overall marketing of the home.
This is the forth home I’ve sold in the area over the last five years. After the smooth sale of this home, Dean has won my business for life.”

“I had an excellent experience with Dean. He explained in lengthy detail the process, the costs, what he would list the price for etc… This was all before I signed on to have him be my listing agent. I feel he went above and beyond for a customer such as myself that hadn’t yet agreed to work with him. He was by far the best of all the real estate agents that I contacted. There was a sense of greed amongst some real estate agents but, not with Dean. His focus was helping me within my parameters and my best interests. I can’t stress enough how easy Dean was to work with. He had suggestions and ideas and explained them thoroughly along with all costs as well as listened to my ideas and thoughts. There was no gray area or surprises. Dean was exactly what we needed. Straightforward, communicative and honest.”

“Dean was always available to answer any questions that we had. He answered all of our question and went out of his way to assist us. I would highly recommend him for anyone who needs any assistance with a real estate issue.”
– Charlene Brey
“Dean purchased a home from me that was in a bit of disrepair. Dean was honest and upfront about what he wanted to do and followed thru on every point. He helped make a very stressful situation much easier and less painful to deal with. I would highly recommend Dean for a buy or sell real estate transaction.”
– Rhonda Nelsen
“Jacobsen Homes (via Jacobsen Holdings) gave my family the answers we were looking for, I never thought real estate could be that easy. Dean is one of the few investors that does exactly what he says he is going to do.”
– Stephanie Pedersen
“Dean contacted me with an offer to purchase my father’s home. He was easy to work with and his offer was a good fair offer which made us want to work with him. He set up escrow, shared the details on the process and followed through on all of his commitments. He even offered to close a few days late if we needed a little extra time to exit the home. Based on my experience I would be happy to work with Dean again and can recommend him.”
– Mrs. Murphy
“It seems like there are so many investors out there trying to make you the worst deals possible. Prior to speaking with Mr. Jacobsen, I had shopped my house around to a handful of other investors. Each one of them tried to give me an offer that only worked for them. After I called Dean, he met with me the very next day, he listened to me, actually “heard” what I was saying, then gave me a fair offer and explained why the offer was what it was. I only wish I would have called him first!”
– Sharon Hodgins
“Dean was one of the most honest and fair dealing persons we have met in the real estate industry in a long time. He did not try to take advantage, and wanted everyone to come out a winner in this transaction. Dean will be around long term since he knows the value of a good name, which comes from treating people fairly.”
– Frazier, Jensen Law Office
“Dean helped me buy a house. It was my first time buying a house and Dean was incredibly helpful. He guided me through the process, answered all my questions, recommended me to quality people for my different needs, responded to all my requests within an hour, if not even under a few minutes, was always available for me. He also proved his knowledge of the market during the negotiation process, knowing exactly what to do or not. The whole process went smoothly and I couldn’t be more happy with his service. I would recommend Dean to anyone and I would gladly do business with him again.”
– Charles Handfield
“Dean was excellent when I purchased my new home. As a new home owner, he helped me tremendously in this time consuming process. He was quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had, whether it was email, or via the phone. He does his job well and I certainly recommend him.”
– Armando Velasquez
“I had a great experience with Dean. I bought a house that he totally remodeled. My step father remodels homes for a living, and pointed out several places where Dean went the extra mile to make sure the home was built to last. I love my house. There was one incident with plumbing that occured soon after we purchased the house. Dean was very willing to work with the plumber, and in the end he paid for the plumbing service. I would recommend to anyone to buy a home from him. Thanks.”
– Cam Bailey
“My fiance and I bought a home(our first!) from Dean in Fall, 2013. Dean was very responsive to all our requests and made the home buying process as stress-free as possible. Dean was very flexible in terms of scheduling times to meet, and the negotiation process. We like the work he did on the house, and are enjoying settling into our new home.”
