Without reservation, I recommend Dean Wartelle to anyone needing a real estate agent in the Palm Desert/Rancho Mirage area. Throughout a lengthy search process, Dean assisted us in a calm, reasoned and knowledgeable manner, always working with professionalism and in our best interests. Thanks Dean!

My spouse and I closed on a property in Palm Desert on 2/3/23 with Dean as our agent.  We were out of town buyers and Dean helped in every aspect of our purchase from selection of property, escrow, home inspections and general information about the community and HOA rules and benefits. The purchase also involved a 1031 exchange and timing issues were involved but he negotiated with the seller and we got it done.  Dean excelled in all aspects of the purchase process and we would highly recommend him.  Pretty nice guy too :) Thanks Dean.

Dean Wartelle was our sellers` agent for the sale of our condo in Monterey Country Club.  He was very competent and also very knowledgeable about the market.  He is a very kind and helpful agent.  We are not computer people and he was most helpful with all the hoops we had to jump through!  We gladly recommend him to anyone who might be interested in a good real estate broker.

John & Gail S.


On behalf of my two sisters and I, we want to say thank you.  I selected you from three realtors I interviewed.  Your knowledge of the real estate market, listening skills, disclosure on the entire sales process and expectations, made our experience easy and seamless.  I would HIGHLY recommend your expertise to anyone selling their property!  Thank you.

Dean - Thank you for your professionalism, knowledge and courtesy. Your integrity and honesty made me feel very comfortable, that I chose the right realtor for me. You made the sale of my condominium in Monterey Country Club an easy process. Your communication with phone calls and e-mails were excellent. Once we put my condo on the market it was sold in a couple of days. I highly recommend Dean Wartelle as your Realtor.

I`ve known Dean socially for a number of years and when it came time to sell my home I knew he was the right person for the job.  Dean is a consummate professional who knows the Monterey Country Club and desert real estate markets very well.  Combining this knowledge with his superior marketing & customer service skills resulted in a quick sale and overall excellent experience.

Many thanks to Dean Wartelle for representing me in the sale of my Condo. He made everything go well and was in contact with me throughout the whole process. His integrity and wonderful personality made me feel at ease. He handled every aspect of the sale, beginning to end. Should anyone ask, I would refer Dean and his team at Bennion Deville.

My family and I retained Dean to sell my condominium in Palm Desert. Dean was incredibly professional and courteous from the very beginning. He is obviously very knowledgeable about all aspects of the selling and buying process. He was in constant communication with us from Day 1 and was so easy to work with. I really feel he went above and beyond in helping us navigate the process of selling the condo. He set up an open house for us right after obtaining the listing and had a buyer for it almost immediately. We wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a terrific real estate agent.

If you are buying or selling your home, I highly recommend Dean Wartelle and his team at Bennion Deville Homes.  I could not be happier with the quick and efficient service he and his team provided on the recent sale of my property.

Rich S.


Under tight time constraints, you completed two transactions in three weeks.  Even though both had hiccups, you solved the problems and we traded units during extreme market conditions.  In the hottest buying fever, you found the condo we were looking for and we purchased it before it got on the market.  You guys made it happen, thanks.

Gene & Debbie G.


Working with Dean and his team was a pleasure! From start to finish the whole process was smooth and efficient. I would definitely recommend for anyone in Monterey Country Club or the Palm Desert area!

Debby R.


Dean was great to work with for the purchase and sale of two different properties. He was very attentive to our needs and answered any and all of our questions in a timely manner. He kept us abreast of the different timelines and requirements that needed to be fulfilled and did so in a manner that was proactive instead of reactive. I highly recommend Dean and his crew for a seamless approach to any of your real estate needs.

Chris & Amber M.


Thank you both so much for representing us on the sale of our home.  I feel you went above and beyond to make it happen. After 4 months on the market with another agent we listed with you and we sold in a week and a half.  I would surely recommend you two for the great service you gave.  Thanks again!

Tom & Carole K.


Dean Wartelle and his team were incredible to work with from the beginning to the end of our condo sale.  Professional, knowledgeable, thorough, efficient, proactive, responsive, "over-the-top" service are just some of the accolades that come to mind to describe Dean and team.  This is the team you want to make a potentially overwhelming transaction smooth and seamless!  Thank you, Dean and Team, for your expertise and excellence!

Wally & Claudia G.


When I expressed to my friends who live in Monterey Country Club that I was interested in buying a home there, they suggested I contact Dean Wartelle as my Realtor.  I`m so glad I took their advice.  I flew in and had one weekend to see some houses.  Dean was very gracious to show me so many places in 122 degree heat. I made a decision and over the next few weeks Dean handled everything making it a very smooth transition. I felt very confident having him take care of my interests.  Thanks Dean.  I really appreciated your knowledge and professionalism.

Maureen R.


Working with Dean Wartelle and his team was a great experience!  Dean was fantastic to work with; he is professional, friendly and trustworthy.  He made the selling process easy for us to navigate and he was always available to answer any questions that we had.  Dean helped us sell our Palm Desert property quickly because of his knowledge of the market, hard work, integrity and good advice!

Paul & Mary Anne F.


Thanks to Dean and the team at Bennion Deville we had a wonderfully easy house sale.  He helped us price it right - multiple offers and under contract within a week.  The transaction was very smooth as Dean marshalled the sale through the escrow process.  I think the buyers are happy with their new home, and we are certainly very happy sellers.

Scott & Margi M.


Dean, it is with great appreciation that Roberta and I thank you for the outstanding representation that you performed during our purchase at Monterey Country Club.  Your suggestions, availability, and knowledge enabled the transaction to be completed in a timely manner.  Thanks again to Team Monterey for a job well done.

Allan & Roberta N.


Dean and the Monterey team just sold my home for me at Monterey Country Club. I have sold 2 other homes before, and was apprehensive of going through the process again. What a refreshing experience. Dean was easy to communicate with and truly listened to my concerns and opinions, before contributing his own expertise and guidance. This made it easy and comfortable to make the decisions together. My house sold in two weeks and I was thrilled with the outcome. Thank you, so very, very much.

Working with Dean to sell our condo was a great experience.  His negotiating skills, attention to detail, and efficiency helped throughout the entire process – from the listing through the close of escrow.  We would have him represent us again and recommend him to others.

Steve & Josette H.


Joan, Dean & Michele made buying my home so easy, I bought a second one from them.  I refer all my friends to them.

Robert C.


We are pleased to recommend Dean Wartelle/Joan Marshall/Michele Rodi to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. We have used these three individuals three different times to both buy and sell our property. We found all three to be extremely attentive to our needs, almost as if we were their only clients. We always felt we could call them at any time to answer any questions or concerns we had. The WMR group is a professional group that cares very much for the people they serve, and they deliver on everything they commit too. We appreciated their constant calmness, solid good work and dedication to get the job done from start to finish!!

Rod and Marianne B.


Our family decided to combine households and we needed to buy bigger and sell two homes.  Our experience with Dean, Michele, and Joan was great!  The process started in September 2017 and ended in January 2018.  One home bought and two sold!!!

Jan and Al T., Mary B.


Michele, Joan & Dean made our dream come true. We were purchasing a home quite a distance away and were totally unfamiliar with the area & real estate professionals. We were looking for agents that we could trust with everything, and who would make sure everyone involved in the transaction were trustworthy and would deliver on time.  They did just that!! They are so connected to the best people in the area which made the transaction a smooth & pleasurable experience.  The day of the close we had the keys and were in our new home by noon!  We highly recommend this very hardworking and knowledgeable Team to anyone looking for honest and dependable realtors.  We still live part of the year out of town and they have always helped us out when we are not there. They are true lifesavers!!

Tom & Lori C.


We originally bought our first home in 2008 from Joan, Michele and Dean. Then 9 years later was time to upgrade. Once again Joan, Michelle and Dean worked with us thru the purchase of a new home and sale of our existing home. They are all extremely professional and personal. A dynamite team of 3, all with expertise to help you thru what could be quite a stressful time. Thank you for all your help!

Bryan and Lori N.


Lynne and I would like to thank you for helping us find our new home here at Monterey Country Club. Your knowledge of the community and the available homes were extremely helpful and kept our job at a minimum. Your understanding of our budget helped us get more house than we thought we could afford. Our buying experience was seamless and would recommend you and your company.  Thanks Again.

Bill & Lynne L.


Thank you so much for listing & selling our home in such a short time & for top dollar.  You guys are the greatest.

Allen & Kathy S.


My family and I worked with Dean to purchase our 2nd home and really can’t say enough good things about him.  Dean was always responsive, very available, knowledgeable, personable and extremely patient with our many questions we asked.  He gave us excellent advice, explained every step and kept us on track along the way.  We couldn’t have been more satisfied with the process thanks to Dean.  We highly recommend him for anyone looking to buy a new home.
