Steve Dean

Steve Dean



Steve spent the first twenty-five years of his professional career listening to consumers and mastering the art of selling in the advertising and marketing world—a skill that blends very well with the world of real estate. He attended Montclair State University where he majored in Broadcasting and Journalism. This led him to the world of advertising, where his innate talent and understanding of “what makes people tick” helped him quickly move up the ladder. His last corporate advertising job was Global Creative Director for Jim Beam brands. And along the way, he’s also helped develop a handful of iconic Texas liquor brands including Cinco Vodka and Republic Tequila.

Steve’s approach to his life and career can be summed up in the words of the great Maya Angelou: “At the end of the day, people won’t remember what you said or did, but they will remember how you made them feel.” Working with Steve is easy - he strongly believes in the power of personal connection and will first and foremost make his clients feel right at home. He listens, pays attention, and gets to know what clients need, want and prefer (and sometimes even more importantly, what they don’t like). He also makes it a point to anticipate his clients’ needs along the way, and never fails to splash in a dash of humor to shake things up.

Those who know Steve would likely describe him as an extrovert and a natural “connector.” Whether he’s prepping a home for sale or helping clients find the home of their dreams, Steve does so with intuition, passion, and a healthy dose of authenticity. He has set the bar very high and aims to become known as the most responsive realtor in Austin, vowing to work with his clients at any time of day or night. When it comes to the search for a new home, Steve truly does whatever it takes to ensure the happiness of his clients, whether that means showing them two houses or 200, he’ll just keep searching for the perfect match until they’ve “found their happy place.”

Steve has an undeniable passion for Austin and its diverse range of offerings. From food to music to culture, Steve believes Austin is a city that truly does have it all. He enjoys giving back whenever possible and helps enhance the greater Austin community through his involvement with Mobile Loaves and Fishes through his local church. Steve also enjoys spending time entertaining—cooking (barbecue brisket is his specialty), mixing up cocktails for friends, keeping busy with home improvement projects, and showing off his impressive tequila collection—with plenty of samples, of course.

Steve is a proud Austin homeowner and lives with his wife and two children Ryan and Ava, and their furry little dog, Oprah.

Steve was awesome at helping us negotiate through the Austin market and helped us all the way through the purchase process. He was very attentive to details and always offered great perspective and ideas to help. We are very thankful Steve was our agent and would be happy to connect him with anyone else we know that needs an agent.

5 Stars! If you want to buy or sell real estate in Austin, TX, call Steve Dean first. Steve is a professional, an expert marketer, and a great negotiator. When I expressed concerns, he listened. Steve handled every aspect of the listing and the closing process exactly how I expected, and there were no surprises on our end. He communicated daily, but was respectful of my time and truly handled the entire process with class. Not to mention, Steve is also a very genuine and down to earth guy who will shoot you straight, and he worked hard to get my deal to the closing table. The real estate market in Austin is hard to navigate. Trust is everything, and it's essential to have someone you can trust representing you. Steve Dean is the top in his class of Realtors in Austin and will always put your best interests first.

Steve is a fantastic Realtor! His background and success in marketing and negotiation shine through. His greatest strength, though, lies in helping to keep everyone on the same page even thru very stressful situations. You can really tell who you are working with when the going gets tough (not when all is well), Steve saves the day every time!

Steve has been a pleasure to work with. I think Steve's best qualities are his diligence, responsiveness, and attention to detail. As first time home buyers, he did a great job both listening to our needs and giving us guidance about everything from what makes a home a good value, to how to find a good loan officer and home inspector. After buying the house, Steve has sent a lot of helpful suggestions for upkeep, along with a few personal touches that have built a strong relationship. I highly recommend Steve as a real estate agent in Austin!

Steve Dean is extremely knowledgeable, patient and offers multiple unique perspectives on how to get what you want out of your particular real estate needs. Also, he has the proper social skills to win over any real estate agent that’s playing hardball on the other end of the real estate transaction. Steve will go out of his way to smooth-out as much of the stressful turbulence that’s often associated with buying or selling a home.

Steve Dean knows his way around Austin, and he knows his way around the real estate process, as well. We recently asked him to list our home and help us find a new one. Steve jumped right in and pulled it all off in record time. We now live in a house we never would have found or purchased without Steve's help; is it possible to give this man five stars?

Shelly J.

We absolutely loved working with Steve Dean. He really listened to our needs and paid very close attention to every detail of the process. We looked at many homes with him, but then he found a particular house that was not even on our radar screen at all, and we fell in love; it's our new home, thanks to Steve. He also put us on The Dean's List! If you want a savvy Austin agent who gets it done quickly and efficiently, call Steve first.

Jacob H.

Can't recommend Steve Dean highly enough, so many agents never returned our calls/texts/emails. Steve answered every one and kept us in the loop during the entire process. We love our new home, and we are confident Steve Dean can help you find the perfect Austin home as well.

Katherine R.

Selling your home and buying a new one is the most stressful process you can imagine, but Steve handled every detail and actually made the process fun if that's possible! We would recommend Steve Dean to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Lorraine B.

We found Steve through a recommendation from a friend and now we'd like to return the favor by recommending Steve to the world. It was so fantastic to work with such a professional, and he is so knowledgeable to boot! Steve will definitely take good care of you and your family the same way he did ours.

Ellen M.

If you want to find and buy your new Austin home quickly and painlessly, you need to call Steve.

Joyce L.

Steve has the patience of a SAINT to work with us since we are the pickiest family on the planet, but we found the perfect home. It's even better than we thought! We thank Steve for helping us every step of the way.

Grace W.

We've worked with other agents before, but their names were quickly forgotten when we started working with Steve. He went above and beyond the standard level of service. We'll work with him again and again.

David S.

If you like smart Realtors that respond quickly and get the job done right, you'll love working with Steve Dean. We want to start buying more rental properties, and we know we'll do it all with Steve. We're sold.
