Dee was an absolutely amazing realtor. Not only did she get out house sold in 7 hours, she walked us through the process from beginning to end. Likewise, she accommodated us on any request we made from her. I'd user her again without hesitation!

If you are looking for a wonderful experience selling/buying a house and excellent results, call Deanna Bennett. Dee is amazing! We love her! Dee is always available, extremely knowledgable about the market, and confident. She also brings a great network of realtors from her company along with her. The whole company toured our home prior to listing it so that they all had 1st hand experience with it to share with their clients. Of all the realtors we interviewed, Dee was the only one willing to have open houses, update our pictures as seasons changed, and she recommended the highest asking price of all of them. The decision to work with Dee was easy. Dee got us an accepted offer of 97% of our asking price within 4 to 6 weeks of listing our home. We lowered the price slightly once because we were relocating across the country very soon and wanted the house to move. The decision to lower the price was ours. Dee was confident with the original list price from the beginning. Dee also made everything from the accepted offer leading up to closing very easy as well. She managed everything for us locally so we could relax and get settled 1100 miles away. We would definitely work with Dee again and again and again if we could. Less ... More

Dee is a great agent to work with. She is very knowledgeable about the Duluth market. She'll listen to your needs and preferences and will tell you what areas or condition of a house that one should pay attention to, not like some agents who just push you to buy a house. Highly recommended.

There's a reason Dee's name is on most of the for-sale signs in town...she is the best! We used her as both a buyer's agent and seller's agent and she was wonderful in both roles. She is in tune to what you want as a buyer, and as a seller does a great job marketing your property to maximize sale price (and sell quickly!). Dee would be my first and only recommendation to someone looking for a real estate professional.

I would recommend Deanna in a heartbeat to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is very knowledgeable and dedicated to her profession. She is available whenever you need her and even worked on our sale and purchase while on vacation. She does a great job keeping everyone involved in the sale/purchase on the ball, she calls and checks in with the lenders on both sides as well as keeping other agents moving the process along. Again, I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Deanna is the market leader!! We have bought a property and sold a property with Deanna and both experiences were great. She makes herself aware of your current situation and does her absolute best to make everything work out. If anyone is looking for a realtor she is the best.

Deanna was a great realtor for us. She listened to our concerns and the urgency of our move. We priced our house accordingly, bringing in 4 offers in 2.5 days, 3 of which were above asking. She was honest, knowledgeable of the area and just a great person. Would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.

Interviewed the best realtors in area before selecting Deanna. Deanna is absolutely dedicated to doing the best for her clients and is tenacious in pursuing prospective buyers. Deanna listens and follows through with wishes of her client while also providing her recommendations and thoughts on how to proceed. It is obvious through her recommendations and actions that she isn't in it for the quick sale but is actually looking out for her clients best financial interests as well. She is very responsive and available at all hours. You can not go wrong in selecting Deanna and her team to represent your interests. Less ... More

Deanna was the greatest person to work with. She was very attentive to my needs and always had a smile on her face. I moved from out of state and she worked very hard to find a house that fit what I was looking for. I will always refer people to Deanna and will definitely work with her again.

My wife and I chose to meet with Dee after hearing great things about her from some of our friends and coworkers. We are so glad we chose to heed their advice for our first home buying experience. Dee was so good at explaining the entire process in a way that didn?t overwhelm or intimidate us. Additionally, she was excellent at listening to our wants/needs and observing our reactions during showings, so she could find listings that fit our personalities and lifestyle. About one month into our search, we fell in love with a rural riverfront property, but three main things almost turned us away from our dream house/property. To oversimplify, there was very little information on the property?s well (drilled prior to unique well numbers), the sellers were very firm, and the mortgage lender?s flood certification company tried requiring us to get flood insurance. First, Dee was able to use her network of connections to put us in contact with a well drilling company that was very knowledgeable on wells installed in the vicinity of the property and within the same timeframe the well would have been drilled. Second, her help during negotiations with the difficult sellers was invaluable in coaxing them enough in our direction that we felt comfortable with such a huge investment. Lastly, Dee did an amazing amount of research, hired out an elevation study at her own expense, and was instrumental in ensuring all the necessary paperwork was filed which resulted in us securing a Letter of Map Amendment from FEMA which removed the house from the floodplain and eliminated the need to purchase flood insurance. Even after having to wait for a response from FEMA, we were able to preserve our rate lock. In other words, her dedication to serving our best interests will probably end up saving us thousands of dollars long-term. In conclusion, Dee is someone you want in your corner when making one of the largest investments you?ll ever make. Her friendly nature will put you at ease, her knowledge and connections will help answer all your questions, and her experience and dedication will get you the best results possible in the shortest amount of time possible. You will not regret working with her. Less ... More

I have worked with Ms. Bennett several times, both as Buyer and Seller and found her to be honest, reliable, responsive and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her for any residential real estate transaction in the Duluth Superior area. Not only have I used Deanna personally but I have recommended her to my family and friends and I have never heard a negative report back from any of them.

We felt confident working with Deanna because she was so knowledgeable in all aspects of buying and selling houses. We first worked with Deanna in buying a house and then we worked again with her when we needed to sell a home. I would recommend Deanna to everyone. She was always available to us and always returned our phone calls.

We've sold and or bought a dozen homes all across the country during the past 20 years. In most cases I've been so frustrated with our Realtor at the end of the process that I couldn't see straight. Dee was the exception. She was fantastic to work with. She was patient and responsive even when we weren't sure exactly what type of house, what location in Duluth or even what price range we were really looking for. She showed us dozens of homes, and when we finally decided on one she made the deal happen. I can't say enough good things about her. We'll definitely use her again when it comes time to sell the home she just helped us buy. Less ... More

Dee was more than just a realtor. She was a friend through the whole process. Dee wouldn't have let us settle for anything less than the perfect home.
