I was asked to join a LeTip group that was starting up in downtown Sacramento, by a lender friend of mine in 1994. I was President the 2nd year and moved to Monterey in 1997, after my Father passed away, and my Mom wanted me to join her in the Real Estate business there. I let LeTip International know I had moved and would be interested in starting a chapter as the only chapter in Monterey already had a realtor. In 2000, LeTip international contacted me with an opportunity to start a chapter with a lender and financial person. We started meeting and LeTip of Carmel, CA became a chartered chapter in May of 2000. There are still two other founding members Richard Westbrook, Chiropractor, and Lois Carwin, Property Management, and many who have been there over 10 years.
Top Agent Dean Provence – of Shankle Real Estate in California’s scenic Monterey Peninsula – is quickly closing in on forty years in the real estate industry. A consum- mate professional, Dean brings to the table a host of exceptional qualities that have endeared him to the legions of buyers and sellers he has worked with over the years. “My mother got her real estate license back in 1974,” replies Dean, when asked how he ended up in the business of selling homes. “She hoped that we’d work together someday, so I got my own license in 1982. I started my career in Sacramento, where I was Assistant Manager of a fifty-person office for many years.” After his dad passed away in 1997, Dean relocated his family to Monterey, where he finally joined forces with his mother until her retirement in 2009.
Dean’s plans for the future are fairly simple: to continue growing his business, while simultaneously enhancing and refining the already-amazing customer service that has been his longtime calling card.
