Dean, you got us through one of the most difficult times ever for our family and for me personally. We can out of it whole and generally content with the results. Our unhappiness lies in having to leave our only home of 35 years. The timing couldn't have been better as I had vowed, as a single mother, to hang on to the home until the last of the four children left. As you know, my youngest, Christina, married September 21 and passed the BAR a week later. There surely is a God!
Our good fortune was having your expert guidance and support in listing, marketing and negotiating the sale of our home at 113 S. Kensington in LaGrange's historical district. This is tricky business, to be sure. Even more so when your home is 130 years old and overdue for renovation. Letting go of the place that has so defined us, and is iterwoven in so many memories., still is challenging. But, it's time for another young family to breathe new life into its charming oak carved walls and make it their own.
You taught us many valuable lessons about how to go about this complicated and vexing process. You were spot on when it came to strategizing how to best market and negotiate the sale of our home in these tricky times. In the end, we both learned from each other and engaged in great teamwork. We don't know how you do this kind of work every day; it is so incredibly stressful. We we're glad you do!
David and I, and my children will all need homes in the near future. We can't think of anyone we'd rather have represent our interests and guide our steps than you. We're truly grateful fo all you have done to help us achieve our goals and objectives, keep our sanity, and not lose faith or heart.
Also, than you for the lovely glass cutting board with the listing photo of our wonderful Victorian. When I opened the unexpected package, I burst into tears. It is a heartfelt remembrance of our home and your kindness. Thank you for being so thoughtful and such an exemplary professional.
We wish you, your family and your colleagues all the best.

Dean provided services to us in the summer of 2011 with the sale of our home, and the acquisition of a home, locally. Dean's team was very professional, organized and efficient. Dean and his team kept us well informed in the sale process and in the purchase process. With his strong knowledge of our local market, Dean helped us price our home for sale in line with the market. This allowed us to sell our home very quickly at a very fair price. This allowed us to acquire a residence locally at a great value (with many thanks to Dean and his strong negotiation skills), and to acquire a residence out of state.
We have recommended, and continue to recommend, Dean to our friends.

Dean helped our family identify the areas of our parent's home that needed updating; helped us find someone who would do the work at a reasonable price; and then marketed the home to its fullest advantage through open houses, photos on line, and the like. He was able to find us a buyer within 21 days of listing and because he knew the market and the area we sold the property for more than we were asking! Professional, knowledgeable about real estate in the area, an expert in the profession as a whole, personable, and the person I would want to sell my home.

Dean has been instrumental in all of our family's real estate transactions, providing top notch service and expert advice at every stage of the process. In our most recent move, he was the mastermind behind our purchase and renovation strategy. Under his direction, we were able to purchase an older home, execute a total renovation and large addition, and end up with a home exceeding all our expectations. Without his advice I expect we could have spent 15% more and still not have all of the features we sought. We can't thank Dean enough and would recommend him at every opportunity.

Dean was great! It was our first time purchasing a home. We told him what we were looking for and he found us an amazing home and negotiated a GREAT deal! He was very helpful in explaining everything to us, always willing to work with our schedule, and walked us through the whole process!

Dean Rouso and his team at Prime Property Partners were very helpful in the sale of my last property and the acquisition of my new home. They truly went the extra mile to get the best deal for me on both ends of the transaction and would be my first choice if I find myself back in the real estate market as well as getting my highest recommendation to any friend of mine looking to buy or sell a home.
