After a long and successful career in sales and online marketing, Hillary Dean brought her enthusiastic personality and considerable skill set to the real estate field. Her prior sales and technological experience blends seamlessly with her emphasis on delivering personal client service that goes beyond expectation; she knows that the creation of a long-term relationship is far more valuable than any single transaction. She is intelligent and articulate yet refreshingly candid, a consummate communicator, and absolutely dedicated to exceeding your expectations of a Real Estate professional.
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which Hillary possesses.
That said, she has found that the key to providing the very best service is to always put her clients first. This means keeping herself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs. This "client first" philosophy has always been the hallmark of her approach. In addition, her knowledge of the latest technologies enables her to do everything much more efficiently, which helps her to extend the range of services she provides to her clients.
Hillary is a life-long resident of the Dallas community and currently resides in Fairview with her Husband (Scott), Son (Cooper) Dogs (Max and Bernie) and Cat (Bogart) and has been involved with Preservation Dallas, The Dallas Woman’s Forum, The North Texas Crime Commission and The Dallas Builders Association.
Information for Buyers
I'm glad that more people are becoming curious about this market! It's an exciting and rewarding situation, with interesting old homes in good condition, new luxury developments, plucky condos downtown, and well-planned family residences with lasting financial and utilitarian appeal.
Searching for a home
Despite (and perhaps because of) the great selections in homes in this area, buyers are having a difficult time zeroing in on the home or property that is uniquely appropriate for their needs.
Just remember: Browsing the listings for months is one way to search out the deals, but weighing the investment potential of each property can be difficult, and many homes for sale are never listed publicly.
The Home Buying Process
As you begin to think about buying a home, you're probably acutely aware that this is likely to be your greatest investment ever (short of children or a good marriage), and you might be wondering if there's anything you really need to know as you go into this process. This is where your real estate professionals come in. With the help of a trained agent, you can come out on top of a closing that might otherwise have pushed your retirement ahead a decade! This happens all the time to buyers, who are left reflecting on the relatively small commission that would have brought a Realtor into the bargain to help them.
If you'd like to know about the home buying process, we'd love to tell you all about it. Contact me!

New homes for sale hit the market daily. As your representative, I'll be in regular contact with sellers and other real estate agents to ensure you see all the newest listings right away, whether or not they're made public. Often, my clients can put in offers with little or no competition and walk away with an impressive deal on the property of their choice. I will also make sure you see only the properties that meet your needs and investment preferences, so that you don't spend time on listings that aren't of interest. As you compare the best deals, I'll provide you with important information about the home, its neighborhood, zoning issues, utilities, and nearby plans for development.
Many real estate transactions include an extensive negotiating process, and as your buyer's Agency it will be my job to represent you here and get the best deal possible. I'll also attend property inspections, make sure any and all agreed-on repair work is carried out, and handle paperwork related to the sale. I can also help set up the financing for your investment, and work directly with a broker to provide you with a seamless service package.
Working with a dedicated agent on your next home purchase will save you time, and add professional assurance to every step of the process. With the guarantee of a solid investment, the decision could also make you more wealthy when it's time to sell. To get in touch with me today, please contact me whenever you'd like.
Information for Sellers
Getting the most for your home or property means doing more than putting a "For Sale" sign out front. In a competitive market where new homes for sale are added daily, your listing needs to be seen in a variety of places in order to stand out. And sometimes the right buyer is waiting out of state, or even in another country. To ensure sure your home gets noticed and sells without a hitch for full market value, consider working with a top professional. It could mean the difference between no sale, and the payoff you've been waiting for.
Five Reasons to Sell your home with a REALTOR®
- Sell with a custom marketing plan.
- Get your home listed and talked about everywhere, not just in the local paper and on your street.
- Attract buyers via the Internet.
- Have all the paperwork taken care of for you.
- Negotiate with the help of a real estate professional.
As your Seller's Agent, I'll quickly put together a custom marketing plan with an effective price. A well-priced home will often generate competing offers and drive up the final sale value. My market analysis takes into account the most actively searched prices, and home values throughout your area, including expired listings, and properties still on the market. In marketing your home, I also develop a listing that emphasizes its unique and sellable aspects. I then put your home in front of thousands of buyers, establishing it on the local MLS as well as broader ones, new listings sheets, and Realtor publications. My network of professional real estate contacts and buyers throughout the nation will also have the opportunity to check out your listing. In addition, I'll use the Internet, and this professionally optimized website, to make your listing highly visible. With more than 80 per cent of buyers checking the web first when looking for a home, that's a part of your marketing strategy you can't afford to miss.
Without the help of a Realtor, marketing your home can be time consuming and difficult. Advertising in the media is often expensive, and many buyers are reluctant to consider homes listed "For Sale by Owner."
When I list your home, I do so at no additional cost. When you start to get offers, I can represent you during the emotionally charged negotiating process and ensure you get the best price, with favorable closing terms that are clearly spelled out. As your professional aid, I also take care of all paperwork related to the sale.
For most of us, our home is our biggest investment. When it's time to sell, get the value you deserve with the help of a professional Realtor. If you'd like to get in touch about your next home sale today, please contact me whenever you'd like.
