Top Agent Dean Provence – of Shankle Real Estate in California’s scenic Monterey Peninsula – is quickly closing in on forty years in the real estate industry. A consummate professional, Dean brings to the table a host of exceptional qualities that have endeared him to the legions of buyers and sellers he has worked with over the years. Dean’s enduring focus on providing the very best in customer service has translated into a remarkable reputation as a trusted, knowledgeable and honest advocate for anyone wise enough to choose to work with him.

“My mother got her real estate license back in 1974,” replies Dean, when asked how he ended up in the business of selling homes. “She hoped that we’d work together someday, so I got my own license in 1982, and I started my career in Sacramento, where I was Assistant Manager of a fifty-person office for many years.” After his dad passed away in 1997, Dean relocated his family to Monterey, where he finally joined forces with his mother until her retirement in 2009.

An expert in all aspects of real estate – including short sales, foreclosures, first time home buyers, conventional sales and real estate investments – the lion’s share of Dean’s business is based upon repeat and referred clients, perhaps the most accurate measure of excellence in customer service in the highly-competitive real estate industry. When asked how he manages to inspire such impressive loyalty, Dean points first to his willingness to go above and beyond for his customers. “My dad was a contractor,” he says, “and I inherited all of his tools. So when things come up, little things not worth calling a contractor or handyman for, I’ll head over to the home and take care of it, whether that’s changing light bulbs, installing smoke alarms; whatever it takes to make the house presentable and get it sold, I’ll do it.” Dean is also a one-stop referral source for his top-notch network of trades, professionals and entertainment.

Other factors certainly come into play when assessing Dean’s long success story, among them his stellar business acumen and fierce negotiating skills, and his thorough and thoughtful approach to marketing. “I’ve hired a team that creates one-page websites for each listing,” he says, “and they help me with social media exposure for them as well.” Of course, professional photography is utilized exclusively, ensuring each property is always shown in its best light.

Another major reason for Dean’s phenomenal success is the appreciation he demonstrates for his clients. “My major core value is family,” he explains, “which is why I treat my clients like family.” That appreciation is clearly reciprocated, as is made clear by the large number of glowing testimonials he has received on, on which site he holds a perfect, five-star overall rating. “Dean is an experienced, professional and savvy realtor who has continued to stay in touch after the sale and provide us with local data and trends. He knows the market, the process of buying and selling, current regulations, is responsive, and has very good negotiating skills. He found us the perfect home for our budget at the time,” reads just one.

Dean is also an ardent philanthropist, who gives back to his community in a wide variety of ways, including his support of the Monterey County Association of Realtors and other charities and civic events.

Dean’s plans for the future are fairly simple: to continue growing his business, while simultaneously enhancing and refining the already-amazing customer service that has been his longtime calling card.
