I have known Dean Benigno his entire real estate career and have marveled at his very high integrity in both sales and leadership in his trade. Qualities like his only come from a person that is genuine, knowledgeable, compassionate and driven to exceed client expectations. Dean is widely known and very highly regarded in his industry and by his peers. He is a true professional in every sense of the word. Realty Executives is lucky and proud to have him associated with our brokerage!
-Dominic Scapaticci, President & Designated Broker, Realty Executives Phoenix
Dean’s clients are the beneficiaries of his trustworthiness, his ability to read the market and his results-oriented marketing skills. Add to this mix Dean’s ambition and his use of state-of-the-art technology tools and you have a REALTOR who creates astonishing service and results for his clients.
- John Foltz, Past President , Realty Executives-Phoenix
Dean is a reliable real estate professional who tailors his approach and works well with his clients. Dean helped me find a beautiful home in a wonderful area of North Scottsdale and I hired him again to sell it when that was necessary. He handled everything with great care and competency. I am still in touch with Dean as we have developed a close relationship although I am not currently in the market for a new home in Arizona. He knows that should I be, his is the only number I need to have.
-Georgia S. Mouzakis Tavlarios
Dean,We would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for your great real estate service and a job well done. We truly appreciate your expertise and persistence through the sale of our two homes this year. Seeing what an excellent and expeditious job you did with our first transaction made you a very easy choice to handle our second property, too. We will, of course, continue to recommend you to those who are in search of a true real estate expert.
- Brian and Kristin Powell, Scottsdale residents
I don't know of anyone moving right now, but will surely let you know when I do! I have completed all of the renovations on my home at La Vida. I am very pleased at how things turned out!! The McKenzie's would be amazed. If you are ever in the neighborhood, please feel free to stop by and see the changes. It was great to work with you and I will keep my eyes out for people needing your help in the future!!
-Rollie Wells, North Scottsdale resident
-Rebecca Tsosie, Kierland resident
Dean Benigno is one of those people that you look to when you need the answer to a very difficult question concerning anything to do with real estate. He has a tremendous breadth of knowledge that is invaluable to anyone looking to make an educated decision about any type of real estate transaction. I have had the pleasure of working with Dean on multiple occasions and find him to be extremely reliable, very organized and most of all very attentive to my needs.
-Brian Ford, past client
I have had the privilege to work for and with Dean for 14 years now. I know Dean personally and professionally. What a great human being. His desire to help people get the best that they can in their real estate dealings is second to none. If you are looking for an agent to sell or buy your next home with, Dean is your man. But if you aren't willing to listen to Dean's vast experience and knowledge of the luxury real estate market, then don't hire him. I have seen Dean negotiate, protect and help his clients attain the best possible price for their situation for the market at that time. If you want an agent who will shoot you straight, who will negotiate the very best of terms for you, in a real estate market that is clearly broken and that mandates a true technician to navigate through all of its nuances so that you know you are always getting the very best done for you, then Dean is your agent of choice. If not, I encourage you to call someone else and experience mediocrity.

Elaine and I want to express our sincere gratitude for the superb job that you performed for us during a very difficult market condition, i.e., selling our North Scottsdale golf community property during a down market for a profit!
I cannot give you enough compliments on your marketing strategies; (1) the planning prior to introducing the property to the market, (2) a first class virtual tour web site that had over 2500 hits in approx 60 days, (3) wonderful backup material in terms of brochure mail outs and (4) very sound advice when offers came forward as to which ones to react to and which ones not to react to. In this case we did get our price in a down market and we cannot thank you enough fo your very professional effort on our behalf. Best of luck to you always!
-Ben & Elaine Heikkinen, former Terravita resident
"I highly recommend Dean Benigno to anyone looking to buy or sell luxury real estate. He works hard, works smart and has very high personal and professional standards. Dean is truly one of the country's top luxury golf REALTORS.
-Curtis Baldwin, Finest Golf Property magazine
"We've bought three houses with Dean as our REALTOR- two in Terravita and our current home at Desert Mountain. He has a very complete knowledge of what's happening in the market, and a good sense of what he thinks will happen in the future, especially in North Scottsdale. "Dean had the keen ability to note the parameters of what we were looking for and then every listing that came on the market that met those parameters- price, number of bedrooms, location, etc.- would be e-mailed to us. That way, we could easily preview Arizona homes from our other residence in Colorado. He's thorough and persistent, but no pushy. He gives you the inofrmation you need but understands that you're the one who's going to make the decision . I nver ever felt like I was being led somewhere I didn't want to go.
We've been through three closings and Dean has made all transactions as hassle-free as possible. His assistant, Ginger, is wonderful, and everybody from the title companies he uses to the home inspectors and workmen he chooses are extremely professional. Dean has such an extensive knowledge of the communities in the area- the amenities, the price range, the inventory- he can pinpoint exactly what you're looking for and lead you right to it. There's no question we would use him again."
- John and Kay Nelson, Desert Mountain residents
I just wanted to thank you so much for everything you have done for Realty Executives Relocation Services. Doing relocation can be quite a challenge and nyou have stepped up and proved to me that you are committed to the transferees and have a remarkable understanding of their needs. You are responsive, knowledgeable, efficient and very pleasant to deal with. Your integrity and hard work are second only to your azazing knowledge of the housing market. I would highly recommend you without hesitation.
-Jenny Khan, Relocation Director, Realty Executives Relocation Services
Dean is just phenomenal! I have known him for about five years. His business follow through, attention to detail, integrity and marketing expertise rank him way above other REALTORS I have used in the past. I love working with him and appreciate his gentle, genuine personality. I’ve referred many people to Dean and I’ve watched him sell their homes quickly. Referring him to my friends and neighbors is the highest compliment I can give him.
- Maureen Webb, DC Ranch resident
Dean works very hard for his clients. The thing I like most about working with Dean is that he will give you straight answers…he is extremely ethical and trustworthy.
-Bruce Barth, long time Desert Mountain resident
Now that the dust from our move is beginning to settle I wanted to thank you again for your dedication in helping us find the right neighborhood/home mix. We think DC Ranch will keep us happy forever! Thank you again for everything Dean.
-Carol & Marty Reid
Our thanks to you for such a stellar job in marketing and selling our Scottsdale home- by far the most enjoyable real estate transaction ever! Our thanks, not only for your thoughtful champagne & chocolate basket, but for your professional, knowledgeable and thorough representation throughout the recent listing and sale of our house. You are truly one professional we will readily refer to our friends.
-Jay & Lin Lash, former North Scottsdale residents
Now that it's about a month since settling into this new home, we want to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help, both in selling our home at Remuda Drive and finding this new place for us.
Your work was outstanding in personal and professional ways. We have had a number of other dealings over the past decade and have always found you making all the time necessary, along with your devotion to getting it all done properly for your client's benefit.
We have recommended you, of course, to other family members and friends in moving to Arizona or making some changes in Scottsdale, and you have always provided vital information and guidance quickly under these usual "hurry-up" circumstances.
We shall continue to recommend you, pointing out your knowledge, and personal, "hands on" approach--whether it is getting the last information, driving repeatedly to various locations, visiting newly discovered places, or staying on top of different or changing situations.
-Ed and Sandy Cooperstein, long-time Scottsdale residents
Our Sincere thanks to you for all of your help in locating and finalizing the property "investment" we are making. Thank you for expediting, coordinating and managing many of the details. Thank you for never-tiring of answering our questions and for your willingness to help us research all the fine points that needed consideration. Thanks again for your professionalism & friendship!
-Kathryn & Jeff Cornella, North Scottsdale residents
Ralph and I would like to thank you for the excellent service you provided on the recent purchase we made in Terravita.
Your extensive knowledge of the area made our search easy. We particularly appreciated the way you listened to what our needs were and did not waste our time showing us properties which were not within our budget or location requirements. We will feel very comfortable referring others to you for their real estate needs.
-Ralph and Ann Whitley, former Terravita residents
We would like to take this opportunity to express our complete satisfaction with the real estate services provided by Mr. Dean Benigno. Mr.Benigno is to be commended for the outstanding service he provided in the sale of our last two homes.
A sincere thank you to you, Dean. We will certainly recommend you, without reservation, to anyone whose main objective is to have the best in the industry. You richly deserve you designation of 'Executive Club Member' for Realty Executives.
-Eugene and Catherine Kelch, former Terravita residents
We want to thank you for coming to our home to present us with your expertise. You were the most professional and most impressive REALTOR of all. My friend told me you were the best and I agree! Due to the fact that we are friends of the Lyon family and I hold my license with Russ Lyon I felt obligated to give them the first chance to market our home. Thank you for your valuable time spent with us. We greatly appreciate it!
-Sandra and Steve Finn, North Scottsdale residents
We just wanted to express our thanks for the excellent service Dean Benigno, provided in the purchase of our home in North Scottsdale. We have never dealt with a real estate agent that worked harder or was as knowledgeable about market conditions and real estate practices as Dean.
We found Dean through his excellent, award winning web site. After Dean’s web site came up on many different search engines time and time again, it became apparent to us that Dean was a major player in the Northeast Valley real estate market. Since we were not forced to purchase right away, we didn’t want to deal with an agent that was going to strong-arm us into writing an offer on the first home we were shown. Instead, we wanted an agent who understood what type of property we were looking for and would respond quickly if such a property appeared on the market. After talking with Dean, we felt very comfortable that he met these high expectations.
Dean found out about our new home the day it was being listed by another agent from another office. I believe we were the first buyers to see the house! It was EXACTLY what we had asked him to look for. The rest is history---for any future clients, this could not have been an easier sale.
From the beginning of the negotiating process until the close of escrow, Dean took the time to explain every aspect of the purchase in great detail. We always felt that Dean had our best interests in mind. Having Dean as our Realtor gave us an experienced and networked professional. We would strongly recommend him to our family and friends.
-Gary & Suzanne Mueller, former Terravita residents
Thank you for the fabulous gift basket, it was very thoughtful of you. We appreciate the work you did for us very much and would recommend you in a heartbeat.
-Sandy, Sandy & Phyllis, North Scottsdale residents
Thanks fo all your good work on the sale of our home in Terravita and the purchase (and sale) of our home home in Tesoro (at Grayhawk). You were patient with us when we were indecisive and professional throughout. Our sincere thanks.
-Donna and Vic Gates, former Terravita & Grayhawk residents
Just a quickie note to again mention how cohesive, smooth, professional and wonderful today's walk came off. So many new faces, so many heart warming and gut wrenching stories were shared. It blew me away. Thank you for putting yourself on the line again as 4 years of this event truly paid off. Hope you can relax and return to some of your life's normalcies.
-Wally Simon, Volunteer, Phoenix Walk for PKD
You are the best! I hope you know how much we all appreciate what you do on a daily basis for the PKD community. Your spirit is a big part of what inspired us to give our all. This was the best walk that I have ever participated in and there have been many. It was so well organized, the whole event was very impressive. Kudos to all involved as you truly make a difference in the lives of all affected by PKD, and to those who don't. Love and best wishes,
-Sue and Brooke Swift, Phoenix Walk for PKD Volunteers
Thank you for the wonderful after Walk party. Your house is lovely, and let's face it, your friends are great. Thank you, too, for your commitment to finding a cure for PKD. You managed to maintain an amazingly poised presence throughout the Walk planning process and the Walk event. You didn't even sweat in the heat yesterday, dammit. One final comment; you are incredibly and kindly politic. You manage ruffled feathers and butting egos with grace, effectiveness and caring. Well done!
