Dean Bright is an excellent real estate professional. He is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and is well respected by lending institutions, other real estate professionals, and all who you are likely to come into contact with when buying or selling a home. Dean stays ahead of the process, advising clients regarding what to expect moving through the process and he does so in a timely way, responding immediately when needs arise or things change. His direct communication is always on target and his advice solid. I would not hesitate to recommend Dean to anyone anticipating buying or selling a home–he’s a consummate professional.

Dean did a great job from start to finish with the sale of our home. His advice about market value was accurate. He assisted us by preparing a punch list of items that needed attention before listing and was attentive throughout the process. I would highly recommend Dean to assist you in your  next real estate transaction.

Having been in the real estate brokerage business for close to 40 years, I have had the pleasure of working with many agents through the years. Dean Bright is indeed that… a “bright” spot of competency, professionalism, and integrity. He is a joy to work with and his maturity and great character come through on a daily basis as I watch him work with both customers and clients. I am delighted to have him as an integral part of our Re/Max family.

Tami and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of your efforts and the tremendous job that you did marketing and selling our home. Your high level of service and attention to detail were the only reasons that we were able to get our home sold. Please be assured that Tami and I will take every opportunity to recommend you to anyone that we know who is in the market to sell their existing home or purchase a new home in the area. We are typically very cautious about making these types of recommendations, however, your professional approach, honesty, follow up and responsiveness give us complete confidence that anyone would be well served to select you as their real estate agent. Please don’t hesitate to use us as personal references whenever the occasion may present itself.

Dean’s attention to detail and knowledge of the area is remarkable! He remembered us from a single phone conversation we had had a year ago when calling about the property around Athens. We never felt pressured and he was excellent about keeping us informed throughout the process. This is the largest single purchase we have ever made and we felt we could trust Dean with all aspects of the deal. He was instrumental in his advice, counsel and suggestions. He is competent in many types of real estate business from land purchases to finding tenants. Further he provided us with excellent contacts for contractors and servicemen to help us in our kitchen remodel. We have already recommended him to both friends and family. We do not consider him just a real estate agent; he is our agent.

Meghan and Markus

Thank you very much for helping me to sell now two homes and to help me purchase two homes. Each experience has been great! Your knowledge of the market and attention to detail made me 100% confident in the decisions that I made. Your work with the inspector, pest control company, lender, and attorney made each day of closing much less stressful. I will refer my friends to you. Of course, if I move again you will be the agent that I call.


Dean Bright is a trustworthy Realtor. He proved himself to be diligent over all aspects of the selling of our home. He was easily accessible to answer questions and provided information promptly. We would highly recommend him to anyone, and in fact, we already have. We will seek out his service again if need be as, again, our experience with Dean has been a “bright” one without a doubt.

Dean is an honest real estate agent who helped us get our house inspected and ready for sale. We were able to sell our house for the asking price with little hassle following Dean’s advice. I often recommend Dean to anyone buying or selling a house in the area.

We had a home that we needed to sell. We called Dean because of his high ratings which at the time seemed a little hard to believe. After meeting him and seeing him in action, we completely understand. Throughout the process, Dean was professional, extremely helpful, and got the job done. Not only did he sell our home and fast but gave us some great tips and ideas for our new home that we had already purchased. Dean became our agent but also our friend. We couldn’t have been more pleased. If you need assistance selling your home, don’t waste your time looking anywhere else. Dean is the real deal!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about my agent, Dean Bright. Dean is a consummate professional. Dean was extremely honest and straight forward with me on all dealings concerning every house that we looked into. Dean always kept my best interest at hand and the concerns for my eleven year old son as well. My situation was even more complicated than the average client as well. I was and still am deployed with the United States Army, during the purchase of my home. Dean had to jump through even more extra hoops and red tape, for me. Even though our time difference is six hours apart, Dean every day kept in contact with me and made sure all my concerns and questions were addressed. I have heard plenty of horror stories about realtors just trying to push out home sells, without even caring about their clients overall well being. Dean was the exact opposite. Dean Bright is trust worthy, honest, and respectable. Dean helped me with the purchase of my first home, and the beginning of a major, monumental part of my life. Through thousands of miles over seas, Dean held my hand every step of the way. Dean made what could have been a stressful time and situation, an ease and a breeze! Thank God for Dean Bright!

Dean is impeccably polite, immensely ethical, and highly knowledgeable. He responded to absolutely every text, call, or email in a very timely fashion. He is directive and gives excellent advice when you need him to; but he also backs off to give you plenty of “space” for independent decision-making, without any kind of pressure at all. A joy to work with.


As first time homebuyers, Dean was the perfect agent. He went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable at every step of the buying process, and he took great care to educate us on all the little nuances of real estate that we could never have learned on our own. We always felt that Dean had our best interests at heart, and this was reinforced constantly throughout the entire process. As an example, we had a property that we were ready to make an offer on. We looked at the house on a Friday afternoon and emailed Dean in the early evening telling him that we wanted to make an offer. By early Saturday morning, he had a full report and negotiating strategy, and he had found out from the seller’s agent about some serious water damage that the seller was apparently unwilling to fix. We were willing to deal with this for the right price, but there was another buyer coming in with a higher offer. Even though it would’ve gotten him a higher commission (and weeks sooner), Dean advised us against increasing our offer because the likely cost to repair the cause of the water damage plus the purchase price would’ve meant that we were paying more than the home was worth (and thus we would be unlikely to recoup the total cost). We took his advice, and we are very glad we did! Even though it took a few more weeks, we ended up finding a home we loved even more. Dean is the consummate real estate professional, and he would be the first person I would recommend for anyone looking to buy a home.

Dean Bright was an outstanding agent in every respect in helping us find and purchase our home. He was extremely knowledgeable and straightforward in helping us navigate the negotiation and inspection process. He listened carefully to what we were looking for and he has a great, no-nonsense style. He guided us as far as the right questions to ask and what to expect. We were very pleased with his efforts, communications, reliability and professionalism. I am very glad we chose to work with Dean. He was an excellent buyer’s agent for us. I would highly recommend that you speak with Dean if you need a real estate agent.
