Personal Profile

Thank you for visiting my page!

I am Dennis Maakestad, a Realtor with Century 21 Elsner Realty in DeKalb, IL. I've been a Realtor in DeKalb County since 1980 and hope I can put my years of experience to work for you!!

A bit of my history: I grew up in Dixon, IL and then came to DeKalb to attend NIU. After graduating from NIU with a business degree in 1973, I knew in my heart that I really wanted to teach so I returned to NIU and did some graduate work in education along with my student teaching. In 1974 I earned my teaching certification from the state of Illinois and was hired to teach in the middle grades at Kings, IL. I loved teaching, but felt a need to supplement my income and have a good job for the summer months so I took real estate classes and became licensed as a Realtor in 1980. Since 1980, I've worked with hundreds of buyers and sellers. I've also invested in income properties in DeKalb and Sycamore and found that to be another way to supplement my income. Both teaching and real estate have been very rewarding careers and I feel I did both well for many years. I retired from teaching in 2007 and am now devoted to real estate full time. For many years I've been active in the DeKalb community with my church and the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity. I've worked locally and also traveled in the U.S. and around the world to help build Habitat homes.

I am proud to be a member of the Century 21 Elsner team. We are among the most successful real estate companies in DeKalb County. In 2008, my first full time year in real estate, I was the Number 2 agent in our Century 21 Elsner company of over thirty agents. In the years since then I've consistently been a top producer, being #1 in 2013. I have been a multi million dollar producer for many years. I have many happy clients to thank for that success! Over the years I have built a client base of satisfied customers who provide me with referrals and call-backs each year. Whether you're looking to sell or to buy real estate, I hope I'll be able to add you as another satisfied client this year.

With Century 21 I belong to a network of over 140,000 professionals who take pride in what they do and specialize in providing a variety of superior real estate services to local communities around the world. Understanding your personal goals and needs is at the heart of my dedication to you. I look forward to discussing your real estate needs with you.

Dennis understood our needs and help us find the perfect property. We saw multiple properties around the area which helped us settle on the townhouse we selected. It was a good value and perfectly located for my daughter who will be attending graduate school at NIU.

We enjoyed working with Dennis in the sale of our home and purchase of another. He was excellent in every way in helping us with decisions, suggestions and we would definitely recommend him to anyone needing a very knowledgeable agent to work with. He has many years experience and very good in his profession. Thank you Dennis for everything and the best to you in your future sales endeavors.

Being a first time home buyer is quite a frightening experience. Start to finish Dennis Maakestad was top notch in helping me along the way. He was very knowledgeable when it came to looking at the actually home, and even more so when it came time for closing. Even through some bumps with the finance company we both made it out alive.

Dennis's attention to detail for my wants and needs in a home were never overlooked. He was professional and understanding of my concerns and worked diligently with me and the selling agent to make sure the sale went through as smoothly as possible. Other buyers/sellers would be lucky to be represented by Mr. Maakestad, because I know they will not be pushed into something they do not want and will always get the full disclosure, regardless. 5.0

Dennis was more than we could have asked for in a realtor. He went above the call and really made us feel at home in our new town. He made the selling process so easy. He was on top of all that needed to be completed. I have made recommendations to use him as a realtor and would continue to do so if I know anyone moving to the DeKalb area. 5.0
