Dean Lueck - Testimonials

Dean is one of the if not the best realtor I have worked with.

He went out of his way to show us everything that was possible. He is always professional. I would not hesitate to work with Dean again.

Stephen Selka

Dean Lueck is the best agent I have ever worked with in my 30 years of purchasing residential property.

His professionalism, attention to detail, and commitment to his customers is the best in the industry.

Paul Knox

Dean is professional, knowledgeable, and patient.

He always have YOUR need and interest in mind, never pushes you but offers his well-informed opinions (This is the best we like about working with Dean, as we had agents before who would push you for a deal, for his or her own interest). His thorough knowledge of the market and negotiation skills also come handy when it comes to negotiating the best deal for you, selling or buying. We've both purchased and sold properties through Dean, and we are very pleased with the result, each and every time.

Weili and Jerry

We really appreciated all the hard work Dean and Kristen put in to selling our house.

We would not have been able to have such a successful transaction without them.

Vivek Reddy /Jaanvi Parkhani

Dean is very professional and efficient, and I am happy that he helped to sell my house quickly.

Jinglin Wang

Dean was an absolute pleasure to work with.

I have never had a better real estate experience in all my years. He was so knowledgeable about the area/ market and truly understood what we were looking for and guided us right to it. In fact I'd venture to say that he knew what we were looking for even more than we did! Words can't describe how great an experience it was working with Dean. I will be highly recommending Dean to all my friends and colleagues.

Gordon and Dineen Tucker

Dean is THE BEST!

No other real estate agent could come close to his abilities. Hopefully you are paying him a lot of money because he is the reason I used his Broker and have referred my friends as well.


Dean and his First Team colleagues including Laura were highly professional - good listeners, highly knowledgeable, diligent, insightful, responsive and professional

Steve Johnson and Mary Johnson Revocable Trust

Dean always does his homework and comes to every meeting with a comprehensive and enlightening perspective.

While Dean is also a good listener, he is straightforward with presenting reality. Reality based upon well-studied analyses.

Chuck and Meghan Ware

Over the years, Dean has helped my family and I buy 4 homes and sell 2 homes.

Although I've worked with many other realtors in the past, I now stick with Dean because he is the absolute best I have ever known. Honestly, I think he's one of the very best in the country. Dean has the unusual ability to be highly professional, yet completely down-to-earth. And everything he does is top notch. His marketing reach is vast, and incorporates some of the best media ever used. He has connections everywhere, and they are the "right" connections for getting deals made. As the best "deal maker" anywhere, Dean has sold my homes quickly, and in both instances at full price. But on the buying side, he was always able to negotiate to the price we needed to pay. I really don't know how he does it! Dean is a tireless worker, and I'm always able to reach him 7 days a week and at any hour. Even when I e-mail him, he gets right back to me. There is no way that I would want work with any other real estate person, ever. He's that good.

Dale Quarto

Dean is extremely seasoned and skilled in all facets of real estate marketing and related financial transactions.

He has a strong feel for home appraisals and what a home will probably sell for, thus taking the anxiety out of trying to determine sell/buy prices. He is also very helpful with all the deliverables a buyer/seller must do to make the sales contract terms and financial transaction go smooth and have a successful escrow close. We give him the highest possible marks, and will only recommend him to family, friends and acquaintences. Don't waste time with other realtors that have far less experience and cause problems/gaps in the real estate sales process.

Ray Prince

Dean went above and beyond in every aspect of helping me purchase my condo.

He is truely professional and a skilled Real Estate Agent. 


Thank you so much for all your help and advice as we purchased our first house!

You must have shown us over 50 homes and probably never thought we would find the one but we did!  We love our home and couldn't be happier.  Also, thank you so much for your amazing house warming gift!  Thanks again for everything.

Stephanie and Ryan Higgins

I have moved 11 times in my life.

Five of them using realty agents. Dean was, by far, the most prepared, responsive, caring and courteous. He listened, found the type of home I wanted and got me a great deal by standing up for me, as his client throughout the process. Great, Great Agent! 


Dean is the best realtor we've worked with in Socal.

He's proactive and thorough in his analysis. We've bought multiple investment properties with Dean and will work with him again in the future.

Yun Liu

Dean's track record speaks for itself.

He has excelled even in challenging years due to his unique ability to get things done when others fail. He has meticulously handled 10 real estate transactions for my family over the years. He is the best real estate agent I have ever encountered. Highly recommend him.

Susan Price Knox

We bought our home in Newport Beach 3 years ago.

Dean represented the seller, We were not working with a realtor so Dean handled both ends of the transaction with honesty and integrity. Dean did an excellent job and we would recommend him to anyone. Larry Sears

Larry Sears

Dean guided my wife and I through the process of purchasing our second home.

His expertise in the industry, local market, and strong relationships allowed for a seamless home buying experience. He was constantly checking in and over-communicating with us which was greatly appreciative. We'd highly recommend Dean as realtor to work with if considering purchasing or selling a property.

Garrett Cathey

Dean provided absolutely outstanding customer care.

I will use Dean to buy and sell every home in my family's future, without question. For buying our current home, he keyed in quickly to understand what we were looking for, was easy-going and provided us with great insight into pricing, details of homes in the area and more. For selling our last home, we sold during the economic downturn but ended up with over a dozen offers above asking price and market value after only being on the market for a few days. Can't say enough great things about Dean!

Mike Rudolph

Dean is a professional on the current market data and handles every part of the transaction with excellent skill and knowledge.

Dean has incredible follow up and is a pleasure to deal with on every level. On to the next transaction with Dean!

Marcia Howell is /Trustee

Dean Lueck is the finest real estate agent I have ever worked with.

His upbeat professionalism was inspiring to watch. Always going the extra mile with an optimistic "can do" attitude. Results oriented with the highest ethical standards, I would recommend him to any friend without reservation.

Mark Ellis

Dean Lueck was a fantastic real estate agent for my wife and me!

We purchased our first home in 2012. Since we were first-time buyers, Dean walked us through the steps of the home-buying process, he made suggestions when/where appropriate, and he helped us close the deal at a fair price. A year after the sale, Dean maintained his commitment to our family: he gave great advice regarding home warranty problem we were having, and he also provided us with a valuation of our home. Dean was a true professional, and we couldn't have been happier with his service.

Ben Hughes

Dean is the best agent I ever had.

He helped us buying our first home. He is very knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy, patient, and friendly. He works hard and acts promptly. He has an exceptional skills to communicate with other agents and work out the best deal for you. I also worked with other agents to buy homes in other areas. But Dean is definitely the best!

Wenkai Qin

Dean is absolutely amazing and has represented us in buying our first home 5 years ago and now our second.

There were multiple offers on our house and he helped us to craft the winning the offer. He is truely a one stop shop and referred us to his loan officer, floor guy, painter, handy man, etc and made sure they all took good care of us. Everyone he refers has been top notch. If a home needs it...Dean will know someone, which really comes in handy. I trusted all of his advice (and I called him in a panic on mulitple occassions, as buying a home can be very emotional and sometimes scary, and he always listened and worked through my concerns with me). I highly recommend Dean for anything Real Estate related. Good service is hard to find these days and Dean has far exceeded my expectations on both occassions!

Nicki Lange

Dean was outstanding overall, very knowledgeable of the local real estate market, quickly addressed our questions and concerns, and provided great customer service.

We would love to work with Dean again for any real estate transactions in the future.

Ashton Keyvanfar

Dean is an all around amazing person.

He is fair, honest, kind, hardworking, giving, polite, very knowledgeable, trustworthy, conversationally skilled and so on. Not a bad thing to say about him!

Collin Macdonald

Dean Lueck did an amazing job selling the house.

He brought an offer that was $100,000 greater than any prior home sold in the neighborhood. Also, he obtained a selling price that was over $100,000 greater than what other agents predicted they could get. He worked hard to prepare the house for showing and to stage the house to get the top dollar. He negotiated the best price and optimal conditions for the sell. The house was in escrow within a week, and escrow closed with no problems. He was extremely responsive and worked very hard. Without reservations, I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Pemberton Family Trust


Knowledgeable about market trends. Professional and friendly. Dean always answered our calls and questions, and helped us with a house search that spanned 4 years. We have complete confidence in Dean. He is the only realtor for us.

Tim and Livia Morse

Dean Lueck is the finest real estate agent I have ever worked with.

His upbeat professionalism was inspiring to watch. Always going the extra mile with an optimistic "can do" attitude. Results oriented with highest ethical standards ,I would recommend him to any friend without reservation.

Mark Ellis

Dean is a wealth of information and has many resources on the real estate market.

We were able to locate an excellent property for our needs and able to close within a short escrow. We highly recommend him. Thanks again Dean!

Reg & Marcia Howell

We are happy to provide the highest recommendation for Dean Lueck.

5 stars! Dean was referred to us a number of years ago by a close personal friend. He helped them find their house in Laguna Beach and they were so excited about Dean both professionally and personally that they quickly offered his name as someone that we might wish to contact when we began the search for our new house in Orange County. Dean is not just a real estate agent, he is a business man. He is a consummate professional with a very in-depth knowledge of the southern California real-estate market. We were always impressed with how Dean did his homework before each one of our visits so that the time we spent with him was as productive as possible. But the thing that I am most impressed about is his Dean’s integrity. Dean was able to find us a property that through his connections, he knew was about to come on the market. This house had the view and location that we wanted but it would require an extensive remodel to satisfy our needs. The total project cost three times what the initial house sold for. Dean could have easily tried to steer us away from that house to another opportunity where he could have received his commission off of a house that reflected the total amount that we ultimately spent instead of a smaller commission off of the house that we actually bought and tore down. This speaks to the fact that Dean truly has his client’s best interest at heart and is looking for what is the best deal for them and not necessarily for him. Because of our trust in him, we continue to consult with Dean on various real-estate matters and we have unconditionally recommended him to our friends and acquaintances that are looking for property in Orange County. Do not hesitate to put your trust in Dean Lueck. You will not be disappointed. Mike and Jana McGuire

Mike and Jana McGuire

Hi Dean, Thank you for doing such a great job on everything related to buying Manera Ventosa and for following-through on every promise.

I was at the house this weekend and everything looks beautiful. You went the extra mile in taking care of these things for me and I really appreciate it. Thanks again Dean. You are terrific!!


Dear Dean: Thanks so much for taking me around to all the beautiful homes!

I think I could be really happy in the San Clemente/Dana Point area. You did a terrific job organizing everything and  I just replied to a customer survey saying you are wonderful! Here's what I said: I am very, very happy with the service I am being provided. Dean Lueck is a terrific representative for First Team... I'd give him the highest possible ratings?an A+ overall. He is personable, knowledgeable and extremely well organized. He listens to everything the client says and tailors his recommendations to fit the client's priorities. I hope I end up buying my home from him!!

Barbara Carlson

Dean helped us find our first home.

He was remarkably patient and showed us many houses until we came across one which we really liked. He helped seal the deal even when everyone else was enjoying an Easter holiday, as properties were getting sold very quickly and time was very crucial. We really appreciate his meticulousness, and patience with which he walked us through the entire home buying process, and made our first home buying experience a truly pleasant one. We were very fortunate to have you as our agent. And I have been recommending all my friends in the housing market to work with Dean. Even today I call him up, he is always helpful in finding good contractors, handyman, whatever ... Thank you Dean for all your help. You are awesome!!

Vivek Jambhekar

Dean is without qualification the most exceptional, professional and invaluable realtor I've ever had the pleasure of working with, and I've purchased at least half a dozen homes over the years.

His attention to detail is amazing, from having all the relevant information on each prospective home at his fingertips, to having the perfect home of my choice professionally cleaned before I moved in. His amiable, easy-going attitude put no pressure on me to buy or even view a home that wouldn't be right for me. I would--and have--recommend Dean to anyone looking for the perfect home-buying experience! These are real words from a real client! Thanks again, Dean!

Jeffry Johnson


My husband and I wanted to downsize as we approached retirement.

Dean Lueck did phenominal work for us in selling our house. He went above and beyond what we ever expected. He gave us advice on presenting the home for sale to its best advantage. More importantly, he was very generous with his time in discussing the best way to sell our house, information on comps, the market at the time and pricing, services that he and his team would provide (and they did - and terrific pictures of the house!) and he kept us up-to-date on every showing, which he personally arranged and did. He put in so much time and effort to get us the best possible contract. Besides all that, Dean is wonderful to work with. He is a really nice and genuine guy. We cannot say enough about him.

Gerry S.

We are very happy with Dean Lueck.

He is the best Real Estate Broker that we have ever dealt with. We will highly recommend him to everyone. 


Dean was nothing short of exceptional!

! Not only did he help us find a great house in a prime location at a great price but also helped us list our home at the right time at a great price! In fact because of Dean and the way he presented our home, through staging, videos and flyers we sold it in less than 24 hours! We are 100% satisfied with Dean's services and would use him again in a heartbeat. Sincerely, Dorothy & Bill Seles

William & Dorothy Seles

Dean was a pleasure to work with and we were on the same page throughout the whole process.

He was focused on our needs and reliable.

Ming Huang Molly Tsoupin Chen

He feels like family.

I can trust him and I let him decide for me when I was buying my houses or leasing one of them. He always makes what’s better for me at the end. Keep it up Dean. Looking forward my next house purchase with you..

Tamer Mohammed Ali Ghada Hosny Miniesy

Dean was recommended by a mutual friend 4 years ago and we have sold/purchased two homes using his services.

He is by (by far) the best and most professional realtor that we have ever experienced. He personally organized all sales activities including touch-ups, brochures, staging and showings. He also tirelessly showed us properties in an area where we hoped to reside, and was always available to answer questions and give unbiased advice. We are now happily living in the home of our dreams in CDM. We were so pleased with Dean's approach that we recommended him to our daughter and son-in-law for their home purchase when they relocated from Dallas. I will use Dean again for our next real estate transaction and would highly recommend his services. Dennis

Dennis Stajic

Dean and the team did an exceptional job, in representing me and appreciate I all the attention to detail, the work and getting the home ready as well.

Joel Graves

Dear Dean, Again, we thank you for locating and securing the purchase of our very special home in Aliso Viejo.

You worked with us over many months and steered us into a more desirable home than we could imagine, a single family home at an affordable price. You were patient through the Bank Owned and Short Sale properties; you taught us how to strike quickly for the property that we now own, a Standard Sale offered by the owner. Your purchasing skill gave us an advantage over others seeking the same property. We are really enjoying this home, the neighborhood, and the neighbors.

Marjorie and Gregg Page

Dear Cameron, I would like to take an opportunity to recognize the outstanding service of one of your real estate professionals, Dean Lueck.

Dean represented me as a seller's agent for the sale of my townhome in Huntington Beach. In years past, Dean has also shown homes to me as a prosepective buyer. In both capacities, Dean has continually shown an incredible amount of professionalism, diligence, and expertise in an ever changing real estate climate. Dean truly embodies the old adage that people don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care. Dean asks prudent questions, remains engaged throughtout the entire process, and always follows through on his commitments. He has always shown me that he truly puts my best interests first and even though his income is derived from commissions, he has never pushed me into making a decision simply so he can close a sale. Dean portrays an amazing amount of patience and has an incredible ability to manage not only people's expectations, but also their emotions in a difficult real estate climate. What truly sets Dean apart is that he understands the importance of educationg his clients and ensuring they understant what is happening throughout the process. Dean has always taken a step further by explaining the why" of thingss, which for me was crucial in developing a trusting professional relationship with him. Dean is truly an asset to your organization and I look forward to both working with him again, as well as recommending him to my closest family and friends.

Mathew Dawson

We received the most professional experience in selling our home.

Within a short time where pictures and a video was done and getting to know Dean Lueck, First Team launched its campaign and our home was under contract in 12 days. We sold our home and closed escrow in 30 days with an all cash offer and our home sold more per square foot than ever sold before in Crystal Cove. First Team is hands down the best in the business. What an experience. Thank you First Team.

Wesley & Galen Hoaglund

As a Real Estate agent in another state for almost 20 years.

I know a great agent when I see one. I am more than happy about Dean Lueck. Dean is an exceptional agent and a supreme professional - I'll recommend Dean to anyone.

Jon Rosen

Dean is super helpful in finding my dream house for me.

He is an expert in the real estate business and gives me lots of useful tips. He is not pushy and he understands what the client really need. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent.


Dean was a fantastic partner in selling our house.

He was a great advisor, willing to roll up his sleeves and do whatever was needed to make the sale of our home go smoothly. He was solution-focused and a joy to work with. I highly recommend him.


We had an extremely positive experience working with Dean Lueck.

We were impressed with the amount of professionalism he showed and Dean was very knowledgeable of the various markets we were looking in. We must of seen over 200 homes with him over a span of 10 months and each time, every tour was well thought out accompanied by a detailed booklet of each listing so we could take notes and have an idea of where and what we were seeing (not provided by other agents we had previously encountered). Dean was able to figure out what we were looking for based on the first 3 homes we saw. He was able to guide us through the whole process no matter how many ups or downs we faced.The most important thing was Dean's patience through the whole process. We owe Dean all the credit for his efforts otherwise we may not have gotten the home we love.

Luluaa Navsariwala

We were new home buyers in Southern Orange County when we met Dean.

I could only be in Southern Orange County on the weekends. Dean would put together a selected group of homes to visit based on our expressed needs. Dean did an excellent job in selecting homes to review, one of which we ultimately purchased. Dean and his Team worked with us all the way through closing. We have been owners for now five years and love our choice. Dean has continued to send us a personal note each year since.

Joel and Helen Paget

Dean is a great realtor and person to deal with.

He was our broker for two houses. He is professional, caring, funny, and nice. I recommended him to all of our friends in South Orange County. It is rare to deal with a broker like Dean in your life. I don't trust people easy but he was able to gain my trust with his attitude and professionalism.

Dr. Mohamed Hegab

Dedicated, experienced, and strong negotiator.

Alex Huynh

We've had a wonderful experience with Dean as our real estate agent.

Dean is incredibly hard working, knowledgeable, and detail oriented. He truly understood what we were looking for, and most importantly, Always listed to us and respected our needs. Over the years, Dean has been our agent on 3 real estate transactions, including the purchase of our current home. We love our home in South OC and truly owe it to Dean for introducing us to this wonderful community.
