“Dean is one of the most honest, caring and hard working persons I have ever worked with in real estate.  He helped me buy my home here on Whidbey Island and he was so patient, thorough and attentive to all of my needs, wants and assisting in finding the home that I loved.  I would highly recommend Dean for all of your real estate needs.”
“I had the privilege of working with Dean Workman from Dalton Realty in 2010-2011.  He was a wonderful agent and was very considerate, knowledgeable, punctual, and always available to show me a property.  He made me feel like I was his only client at the time although I know that he had others.  I had worked with two other agents before settling on Dean; he wasn't at all pushy and expressed the desire that I find the home that was perfect for me, however long it took.  It took nearly a year, but I finally did find it and am so very happy .”
"Have known Dean for several years and have found him very knowledgeable and responsive.  My wife and I came to Whidbey Island in February of '12 to build a home (we thought) and he showed us several properties as options. By the end of the weekend, and in the manner of HGTV's House Hunters, we bought Home #3.  It was a bank owned property, and Dean made sure we understood the occasional delays and worked the issues with a sometimes balky listing agent.  His insight, advice and referrals to both Lenders and Remodeling Contractors were invaluable as well.  We are very grateful for his representation."
Dear Mr. Workman:
I just want to thank you again for representing me in my land sale on Whidbey Island.  Your assistance was greatly appreciated.
I do not believe anybody walks into the complexity of a real property transaction with excitement.  You were an excellent guide through the proccess.  Both your knowledge in the area and your ability to translate that expertise for my understanding were exemplary.  You were both punctual when I had questions and kept me updated on your own accord.  You listened and worked with me to achieve my goals, rather than tryihg simply to implement your plans.  I came to see you as a partner in the process.
Thanks again for sharing your talents and knowedge with me.
I just wanted to send my gratitude for the efforts and professionalism you provided to make possible the sale of my stepmom's properties on Whidbey Island.  You were very fundamental in providing guidance, support, suggestions, and at times physical help, while I was her Power of Attorney and trying to sell her properties on the island to finance her care in an assisted living facility.
After her passing, and I was appointed the personal representative of her estate, you were able to find a buyer for a final piece of undeveloped property which had been on the market with other agents for several years, due to its wetlands classification.  The timely sale of this limited-use property allowed for the conclusion of the probate procedure without any delays.
Always positive, listened to my suggestions and often offered yours, without any pressure, kept me informed on a weekly basis, and calmed me down when I was ready to do something irrational just to get things over and done.  I was fortunate to have you as my agent. Having to sell the family property and see the end of a family era on the island was difficult, but our friendship and working relationship made such a difference.  Thank you, and best wishes for you and yours in the future.
