The Dean Group founders Patrick and Sheri met at the University of Illinois – Champaign-Urbana in 1996. He was studying economics. She was studying mathematics and computer science. The college sweethearts married and headed to Boston in 2001 for a life-changing adventure: a new city, new jobs and their first-ever home.
Patrick and Sheri completed a full renovation of their historic Boston home in less than a year. Knee deep in demo, they realized their passion for real estate and working together on large-scale projects. After eight years on the east coast working in Finance and Operations – all while renovating homes and advising friends and family on property purchases – they returned to Chicago to pursue their love of everything real estate.
In 2016, they launched the The Dean Group to offer their expertise to homebuyers and sellers in Chicago and the northwest suburbs. The Deans have now teamed up with Compass to provide relevant, knowledgeable and professional realtor services to their clients. For almost two decades, they’ve bought and sold homes for themselves, and counseled family and friends on the sale, purchase and renovation of homes. Now, they’d like to help you.
Patrick resides in Palatine with his wife, Sheri, and three kids. He earned a bachelor degree in Economics from the University of Illinois – Champaign-Urbana.
Prior to real estate, Patrick spent 18 years in the financial industry
