Dean Linnell with The Linnell Group at The Whistler Real Estate Company explains his philosophy on Whistler resort real estate sales and why he and his team have become the #1 digital real estate marketing team over the past 18 years in Whistler and Pemberton, BC.
My name is Dean Linnell and I sell real estate in Whistler. I came into the business of selling real estate a long time ago. I've been a realtor in Whistler since 1998 and I've experienced a lot of Market changes.
Since high school I always knew I was going to sell real estate and when I moved to Whistler I fell in love with the place and knew, right then and there, that I wanted to make a career out of selling real estate here.
The most important lessons I've learned in being in this business over the years is not only the value of hard work but also being honest. So, with the combination of those two things, you really can't go wrong.
Being in this area, as long as we have, obviously helps our business in a lot of different ways. I'm fortunate that within this community we've been able to establish ourselves; it gives us experience, it allows us to specialize in this particular area and in this business, you put your reputation on the line every time you meet with a client.
So, we've done that and I believe we've been tested and it's proven that we're here and we're going to be here for a long time taking care of a lot of families in this area.
'Dean and I have worked together over 15 years. There's a lot of different agents in a town like Whistler but we've chosen to work with Dean Linnell because we get excellent service and the results we're always looking for.'
The process in helping any client sell their home, first and foremost and the most important thing is I want to find out the 'why?'. Why is it that you're selling? Why is it that you want to sell your home in Whistler? I want to make sure that that 'why' comes true.
Whether or not you're selling a $150,000 condo or a $2m or $3m plus luxury home, to me you're not going to be treated any differently, you're going to be treated as that million-dollar client, regardless.
My goal is not to just list your property in the Whistler Listing Service or the MLS (Multiple Listings Service) and sit back and wait. My goal is to truly put my years of marketing knowledge to work and get your property in front of a flood of buyers.
I don't want to be here to waste your time. I want to make sure that your property gets sold.
We enjoy working with our friends and our clients and we'd like to continue those relationships; it's more than just a contract. I want to make sure that you're taken care of.
