Real Estate Consultant

Florida-Alabama Gulf Coast

HomeSmart Sunshine Realty


What do you get when you combine 25 years tech experience with a passion for the Florida and Alabama Gulf Coast? You get a knowledgeable, savvy, and energetic real estate consultant like Dean Foster!

Dean’s career began in the tech industry with Texas Instruments, which eventually led to creating his own tech company. However, after a successful 25 year career, it was time to start a new chapter. So, in 1998, Dean’s new role as a real estate consultant began. In his first year in business, Dean was selected by his fellow agents for the “Rising Star” award. For a little over two decades, Dean has worked as a licensed professional helping people just like you sell their home or investment property…and helping residents relocate and fall in love with Escambia & Santa Rosa County in Florida. If you are interested in living in LA (lower Alabama) along the coast of Orange Beach or Gulf Shores in Baldwin County, Dean is now licensed, as well, in Alabama.

What Dean really loves about his job: meeting new people and forming lasting relationships. In fact, some of his best friends are clients who stayed in touch. And being in real estate allows him to participate more in his beloved community. He currently serves as a board member for Pensacola ACE (Arts, Culture, & Entertainment).

Dean still adds a flair for technology in his real estate work. Being an FAA Certified Drone Pilot, he creates high quality HD property videos for all his listings, incorporating drone footage that he records himself. Once a techie, always a techie…

If you are being called to the Gulf Coast or are needing to sell your current home or investment property, contact Dean Foster today, and you will be guaranteed a consultant who will lead, guide and protect you while you are making your real estate decisions.

After having used Dean Foster to buy and sell real estate, I can truly say that he is one of the most professional, knowledgeable and hardest working real estate agents who does not leave anything to chance. He crosses every 'T' and dots every 'I'. He processes a unique business savvy and ability to see things that other people do not which gives him a competitive edge to consistently outperform his competitors.

Dean is very professional, very knowledgeable, and goes above and beyond in helping his clients. He sold my house in less than 2 weeks on the market. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the market of selling and/or buying real estate.

Dean was a fantastic realtor! This was our first home sale and I felt like he advised and represented our best interest. He really stepped in and took out all the stress and handled everything as we worked with contractors. There is no way we could have done it without is protectiveness. The closing was well coordinated and his expertise with dealing with the buyers and the contractors was worth every penny.

Purchasing a home is one of the most important decisions you’ll make, and the right advice and guidance is paramount. Experience and expertise matter and they can make a significant difference in making sure that you not only find the right house, but that you also pay the best price.

I not only have a thorough understanding of the marketplace but I also have access to many properties that are off-market 

and an awareness of properties that are about to be listed. Most importantly, I’m keenly aware of the nuances that determine value and I am discerning as to construction quality, materials, and craftsmanship.   I will listen to your needs and find you the perfect home and I will make sure that you make an educated and informed decision. Once you choose a property I will represent your interest vociferously throughout the purchase process, negotiating the best possible purchase price, managing and advocating for you during inspections, escrow, title, and closing. I will also advise you on how to make the house even better, including furniture and design, and possibly remodel ideas and augmentations where beneficial.


Choosing the correct real estate agent to sell your home is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. It can be the difference between your home sitting on the market for months or selling quickly, for hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars more. Your home is a very personal, important, and valuable asset, and it can be an emotional and complicated endeavor to sell it, especially in today’s challenging marketplace.

Numerous questions and concerns will need to be addressed, and the advice and consultation that you receive can make a tremendous difference in the results. Marketing and advertising, remodeling and/or upgrading, photography, internet exposure, staging, design, floor-plan measurements, videography, timing and presentation, inspections, pre-market exposure, agent outreach and relationships, open houses, pricing, and dozens more nuances and subtleties all make up the difference between failure and a successful sale.
