Dean has been active as a commercial realtor since 1980, initially working in office leasing. In the mid 1980’s Dean developed a relationship with TD Bank, who had him focus most of his attention on completing acquisitions for new branches, sales of closed branches, and office and retail leasing. Through this experience Dean realized his strength as an extension of his clients' real estate divisions as their "Man in the Field" but off payroll.
Clients such as the Ontario Lottery Corporation, UNICEF, The University of Toronto, Loblaws and The City of Toronto have taken advantage of Dean's services over the course of his career. Dean's strength has been his ability to locate off market properties for the above clients and in addition for many private investment companies.
Dean is the author of The Q™ Investment Report for Lennard, regarded as the best written report on the Toronto commercial real estate market by his peers.
Dean is a graduate of Concordia University, has been physically active all of his life which has kept Toronto orthopedic surgeons and physiotherapists gainfully employed. Dean has two daughters that are the apples of his eyes and is blessed to know they share Dean's same sense of humour.
