Dustin helped me find and close on the exact house I was looking for. He was very knowledgeable and helpful through every step. Any time I had a question he was there to answer, very timely with his responses. Great experience and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home
Dustin is superb...and once you've worked with him you'll feel the same I'm certain! Here's why we think he's so great! He landed our business orginally for being the QUICKEST and then MOST RESPONSIVE realtor to work with as we began the relocation process to North Idaho. In 2013 we arrived on a Friday and after a long weekend had a signed around offer by Monday morning. We had landed the perfect place! We then asked his help in 2016 to purchase land behind ours for our daughter's family. The land was not for sale and involved skillful negotiatons because another neighbor was using the land and wanted it when they found out we did! Dustin handled the deal beautifully! In 2019 we asked for the same exact help to purchase more neighboring land for family THAT AGAIN involved another active bidding neighbor. He navigated all the negotiations to perfection and we are 3 for 3 AND feel very blessed! We feel so grateful to have had such a skillful realtor in our life! Dustin literally helped us make our dreams, and those of our family come true! Give him a call today, and see how great he is for yourself!
We started looking for properties in Montana approximately 2-3 years ago and met Dustin about halfway into the process...very fortunate for us.
Dustin was patient with us all along the way and took the time to truly get to know what we were looking for. His knowledge of the areas in Montana was extensive, which really helped us to narrow the right areas for us. His response rate was extremely impressive - from answering our (sometimes!) duplicate questions to conducting conference calls when my husband was traveling. His process knowledge and negotiation skills got us our dream property/home.
What someone needs and wants in their realtor is knowledge, patience, integrity and the motivation to get the best ‘numbers’, whether representing buyers or sellers. Dustin did all this and more for us.
We have bought and sold a fair amount of homes in our lifetime and can truly say Dustin made this acquisition the best experience we’ve had.
Thank you, Dustin!
Dustin was our 1st choice and exceeded our expectations. He fought hard for us and even jumped in with some labor and elbow grease to make sure everything went as smooth as possible.
I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for an honest, dedicated and hardworking individual.

Dustin takes the time to help you find the house that's right for you. He knows the area and has many resources to help with the whole process. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor to help my family and myself to find the perfect home.
Dustin was the perfect agent to assist with my out of state purchase. I had no idea what area was ideal, the weather, or shopping etc ; and he helped me to understand the pros and cons of each area BASED ON MY WANTS/NEEDS.
I needed someone I COULD TRUST! Anyone can sell a home, but I needed someone to represent me and protect my best interests. It was clear he wanted me to have the home of my dreams as much as I did. Not only is Dustin and excellent realtor, he respects your opinions, listens to your concerns. He isn't trying to just close a deal, he is an active participant in finding the right home.
Once we found the home, that's where Dustin's expertise as an appraiser really came through. He knows what the market will bear, what the cost to build is, and how to negotiate. The most important part of buying a home is the negotiation. He advised me on each counter offer i perused. He Obtained the feedback needed to know where I stood with the sellers, and where I should go from there.
Several negotiations later, I not only had the home of my dreams- below the asking and appraised price, but the designer furnishings as well. Dustin handled the scheduling and inspections to ensure it was done on time, and I was getting a solid home.
I would highly recommend Dustin to anyone who wants their home buying experience to be professional, trustworthy and at the best price. You wont be disappointed!
Dustin has been our Real Estate Agent over the past few years. He is truly the best! Dustin is professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and makes sure his clients needs are met. He has helped our family find the perfect place to call home.
Dustin goes above and beyond! Not only does he care about the sale, he makes sure your house looks good and is in quality shape when it goes on the market. He gave excellent advice when it comes to buyer negotiation. I can’t say enough about Dustin and his job as a realtor. He pays attention to details and really makes it a stress free situation. He was excellent!
We have sold 2 houses and bought one with Dustin. We will use hine to purchase our next home. Dustin is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He works hard for his clients and has a great ability to break everything down so you know what is going on and what to expect. I would recommend him and do recommend him every chance I get. I have family members and other friends that are real estate agents but still choose Dustin hands down.
If you need a realtor I definitely recommend Dustin.
I thought I couldn't buy a non-USDA home and honestly didn't trust realtors but Dustin was able to prove me wrong on both fronts and after about a month we closed on a home in a non-USDA location I really wanted with an affordable payment I didn't think possible for that area.
Dustin was patient with this first time home buyer, knows his stuff and took the extra time to walk through it. Also knows a lot about homes (coming from a former insurance claims adjuster) - where deal breaking issues could be and what were simple remedies. Dustin's a great negotiator and he will work every angle to get the best price he can for you.
Like I said, if you need a realtor definitely go with Dustin.
Buying or selling a home is a vulnerable process and we needed someone we could trust to help us make the right decisions. Dustin is very trustworthy and puts his clients needs first. He is man of integrity . His background and experience make him an incredibly well rounded realtor with all the right knowledge to help u make the right choice for your family. I would choose Dustin time and time again for all my real estate needs.
We could not have been more pleased with Dustin and his help with finding and buying our house! We had a short window of time to look and he went above and beyond to show us everything available. We were actually willing to let him pick a potential home if we had to leave before finding the best house! Turns out the last house he showed us prior to our departure was the one! We easily highly recommend him to anyone coming to the area looking to buy a home!!
We connected with our buyers' agent, Dustin Baertsch, through our selling agents in Bothell, WA. They didn't know him, but were impressed by the information that their research revealed. Their guidance paid off for us.
Dustin's handling of our home search was impressive. He didn't assume to know what we wanted, but rather, he asked good questions. Then, he built a solid idea of what we wanted, There were no false starts or wasted house tours. He never rushed us. Instead, he made us feel that we were his only clients.
When we got close to a decision, Dustin didn't push us to make a decision. Instead, he gave us as much information as we needed to make our own decision.
After the first offer was made, he guided us through the process all the way to closing. He stayed in touch with us and made thoughtful suggestions throughout.
At the title company's office for the closing, Dustin made cogent and helpful observations. Then, outside the range of his job, he further assisted us at the County Assessor's office as well as at the Department of Motor Vehicles for our license plates and driver's licenses.
On top of all that, he never missed an opportunity to give us good information about living, eating and driving in Coeur d'Alene. All in all, his performance outstanding. We recommend Dustin unequivocally.
Dustin has helped myself and my family members buy and sell multiple properties over the years. He is knowledgeable, responsive, personable, and professional. You can tell that he cares about his clients and it shows in his everyday commitment to his craft. He listens carefully and works with you to accomplish your goals. I value his opinion and insight when it comes to understanding the local real estate market. He is always willing to help and is a great problem solver. I highly recommend Dustin to anyone looking for a trusted real estate professional.
I would highly recommended using Dustin as your realtor. This is the second time we have worked together through the home buying/selling process as we were very pleased with him the first time around. Its very obvious he cares about the relationships being built with the families he works with. It felt much more like working with a friend than a business contact. We live in a culture where patience has disappeared, pushiness is the norm, and everyone wants to speak instead of listen. Working with Dustin both times was refreshing as he is the polar opposite of these in that he carefully listened to our desires through the entire duration, never pushed us on timing, and was very patient while we took time to process our options. Our most recent transaction was complicated in that we were selling two homes, buying another, and building new on same lot. There were a lot of moving pieces and research to coordinate on his end that were done in a timely and thorough manner. We are now in our forever home so have no plans to move again, but if we ever did, Dustin would be our first call again.
Dustin worked with us for two years to find the right home. He's a hard worker and gets the job done. Dustin is the only realitor I will use. I trust him fully.
Looking for a new home while living out-of-state can be difficult going it alone. Dustin kept me up to date by sending new listing information to me and I appreciated his great knowledge of the area. After my offer was accepted on a new home under construction, Dustin kept me informed of the progress with photo updates, as I was still living out of state. He negotiated with the builder and I am very happy with the outcome. Throughout the process, I always felt Dustin was looking out for my best interests.
If you want a realtor who cares about you, who communicates promptly and thoroughly, who either knows the answer or finds one quickly and above all, can be trusted, then you need Dustin. He has handled multiple transactions for us and we have been extremely pleased with all of them.
Dustin does his homework and is exceptionally knowledgeable about real estate. Dustin is very low pressure and was highly responsive to our many questions. He also knows about the building process, building codes, appraisals, lending, and property management. He did so many things to add value (i.e. money in our pocket) to the transaction. Dustin was willing to roll up his sleeves and do the hard work. He found all the answers we needed to buy a wonderful property. You will be thrilled with your smart decision to work with Dustin
It was a great experience to work with Dustin.
He was professional and comfortable during negotiations. Dustin helped us get the best price for the house.
Dustin worked with me for several months through the research, discovery process and eventually purchase of a lot to build on. Throughout my time working with him, he was extremely professional, personable and patient. Always happy to answer questions or promptly gather additional information. I was always confident he had our best interest in mind and it felt like a friend helping us through the buying process. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a Real Estate Professional.
Dustin Baertsch is a diligent realtor. Dustin has sold homes for me and helped me buy homes. Dustin works his butt off going the extra mile in EVERY aspect of a home purchase or sale. He is detail oriented and his patience is beyond compare...I am a difficult customer to say the least! He always answered my calls and gave an answer or found the answer no matter how trivial the question. Dustin is devoted to his job and always presented himself professionally with an endearing smile. Thank you, Dustin...you have truly been a blessing to my family and I.
Dustin has been a great help during our purchase of a condo. We are from out of state and he was very knowledgeable in the Idaho market. We could not have done it without him!!
Dustin is great! He knows what he's doing and he's very personable. Funny, kind, knowledgeable and well organized are just a few of the traits to describe Dustin. Sometimes it didn't even feel like I was looking at a house with an agent, it felt like a friend checking it out with me. 10 out of 10 would recommend Dustin Baertsch.
My son had worked with Dustin in the past on purchasing some investment property. He seemed to be very knowledgeable and know the territory. I went with Dustin as my realtor in purchasing a home in the CDA area. It was kind of difficult because I was working out of town and everything worth anything was going in a day or so. Dustin was extremely helpful in finding what I was looking for. He went over and above!! He was always a text or phone call away. I didn't have to wait days to hear back from him. He put me in contact with an amazing mortgage company, inspector and gave me names of painters to contact. If I ever purchase another piece of real estate I will definitely chose Dustin to help me with it.
My wife and I were both very impressed with Dustin. We received the attention and responsiveness one would hope to receive when dealing with a transaction of this magnitude. I always felt he had our best interest at heart and still do weeks after closing. I also did not feel like we were just another transaction to get closed and paid for. No regrets whatsoever and will gladly do business with again.
This spring Dustin listed and sold my home and as stressful as the process can be, he made it go as smooth and stress free as possible.
Dustin is very knowledgeable of the market and the housing industry. He helped with what the inspector may want fixed so it could be taken care of ahead of time. Did a great job with photos and the presentation of the home.
Currently working with us on a new construction home and is on top of any concerns we have.
Dustin did a great job! We moved here from out of state and Dustin was one of our biggest assets and making sure our move went smoothly. He was so knowledgeable about the area. We made a list of properties, (while we are out of state via the internet), and when we got to town Dustin had open availability to show us the properties on our list. Five stars all the way!
I would recommend Dustin to anyone. He was great to work with and very helpful. HE FOUND A BUYER IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS. I found this very unprecedented. He worked open houses in a very personable way and did an excellent job describing hidden assets to the property.
Since it was my first house, Dustin guided me very well through the whole process. He had no problem working around my difficult schedule. I gave him my requirements for my house and he provided me with multiple listings that matched my criteria. I will recommend Dustin to everyone buying a home.
Dustin was always very professional and provided a realistic prospective. He was very responsive when contacted with questions, and would always go out of his way to help.
Dustin Baertsch helped me find a home during a very active market. He was diligent in finding me a home within my price range which was difficult because it was a range so many others were looking in as well. He kept me updated daily on the newest listings and was always quick to respond to my questions. He scheduled viewings usually within the same day of a new listing, which was so important in this market. His knowledge of his profession was a comfort to know I could rely on his honesty and sincerity.
I appreciate how hard he worked for me. I have a nice home thanks to Dustin.
Dustin has represented us in 3 home purchases. The last one being an investment property. He always answers my questions in a timely manner, and streamlines the buying process so we didn't have to worry about anything.
i was quite lucky to find Dustin on Zillow,
we were very much on the same page, he listened to my needs, educated me on several occasions and i appreciated his techniques. His no pressure approach was perfect for my style of doing business. His knowledge of the area and current trends along with patience secured me a property im quite happy with .
Besides being my agent we are now friends.
Id highly recommend him for any real estate needs,
sincerely, Charles Jones
Although we didn't end up buying a home from Dustin, it wasn't because of his lack of effort. Dustin spent several days searching every corner of the county, trying to locate the right home we were looking for. He was great in pointing out both positive and negative aspects that we may have overlooked, as well as giving us a great feel for the area. We like his sense of humor, as he makes you feel very much at ease. We HIGHLY recommend him.
Dustin is a great guy. He helped us sell my monther in laws's house after she pasted and got us a price that others said wasn't possible. He then worked very hard to help us purchase our first house. He was flexible with his schedule. Dustin kept us grounded when we saw houses we really liked but may not have been able to afford and would then show us a great alternate more in our price range. We will only ever use him for our real estate needs. I recommend him any and every time I hear someone is looking to buy or sell a house. You can't go wrong with Dustin!
Dustin was referred to us by two of his clients whom we have known for 40 plus years. In our own 53 years we have dealt with many realtors in residential, business and recreational properties. Dustin is our favorite and will be recommended . He works very hard to meet our needs in our current new town with hard work, knowledge and intelligence. He helped us find suppliers for things such as AC that the builder of our new house would not provide. He was diligent in working with the builder to get the paperwork with the title company and the clean up crew to meet the schedule of the moving company who came early. Some tense times but Dustin handled it all with grace and diplomacy.
When it comes time to list our lake property, Dustin Baertsch will be our first call.
Dustin was extremely detail oriented and always looking out for our best interests. Dustin was our "eyes and ears" while we were still living in California, and was very helpful in scouting out homes for us to look at when we finally flew up here with just a short amount of time in which to locate and purchase a home.....to the extent of measuring rooms for us, checking out available lots to potentially build on, and giving us feedback on the areas the homes/lots were in. He truly helped ease our stress level throughout the entire process. We would highly recommend him to act as your realtor!
We used Dustin to buy our current home, he was outstanding and help us the entire way. We drove so many miles in Post Falls that I thought he'd give up on us, but he stuck with us and helped us find just what we wanted!
Dustin was wonderful. Found us a great house in a great neighborhood and was there through out the whole process. Highly recommended him. Great guy. Even helped find us a lender when ours fell through.
Dustin helped us sell my parents' home recently. My father had passed and my mother has advanced dementia and could not take care of such a matter for herself. Dustin went above and beyond to assist us in this endeavor. We did not live in the area and were having to make this work over a long distance association, but he made it so pleasant! There were other realtors in the area who were somewhat mindful of the circumstances surrounding this sale that were trying to "lowball" the asking price and bully us into getting less than the value of this home. Dustin was so loyal to us and had a good repertoire of honest people in the construction industry who he referred us to for things that needed to be fixed in the house before the sale. We would highly recommend Dustin to you as someone to have on your side either with the sale or the purchase of a home!!! He is THE best!
As out-of-state buyers, we expected our "hunt" for our new dream home to be a challenge, but Dustin stepped out of his way in helping us make this purchase extremely smooth and painless. The process started by him mapping out a day-long tour to view 12 different properties over a 200-mile long route. We were able to visit and view every single home, including the one we eventually bought. Once we made our pick, Dustin was able to successfully negotiate the purchase price and various other terms and conditions. He handled the inspections on our behalf and was available via phone, text or e-mail 24/7. Overall, we had an excellent experience and highly recommend Dustin as a top realtor who is able to represent his clients in any aspects.

We bought a home via the internet thru Dustin. Dustin was very professional & very helpful. We lived 1500 miles away and Dustin was our "eyes & ears" with our purchase. Dustin was always very professional & willing to do what ever we asked of him. He researched every aspect of our purchase for us & did a excellent job preparing us for our move! Dustin is hard working & very knowledgeable at his job!!!
Dustin was a very low pressure, but highly knowledgeable realtor. He was genuine about keeping within our primary price range and upfront with options that we would be looking at within that range. We never felt pushed to purchase a home that wasn't the perfect fit and we spent many evenings viewing various homes in the area. He was able to direct us toward the option of building, which we had never weighed heavily but ended up being the best decision we could have made. Very pleased with his overall availability and demeanor.
We met Dustin when we were looking to purchase a home for our daughter and her children. We were so impressed with his response to our need, we hope to use him again if we need a real estate agent in the future.
Dustin was quick to respond each time we called him, knew exactly what we had in mind and in a matter of weeks we were in the closing process.
He is a true professional and a delightful young man to be with!
Dustin was the hero of our home selling and buying experience this year! I happened upon him as a realtor and chose him pretty without any really knowledge of him. From the beginning, he was so in tune with our family and our needs. We needed to sell a house and close on our new one in the same week. He helped us find good home inspectors, mortgage professionals and a fantastic Title Company. Each and every person that he recommended was responsive and professional. We ran into SEVERAL hiccups during our buying/selling process that were due to the buyers/sellers. Dustin helped us navigate through all of those issues and ultimately pulled off a bit of a miracle. In addition to all of that, he was so fun to work with. Great person that I would recommend highly.
Dustin was very helpful. He took the time to communicate with me by email for several months before i ever even showed up in the state to purchase a home. He always checked in to see how things were progressing before my move. That was very much appreciated. He has also checked back in after the sale to see how things are going. He is very willing to do what it takes to find what you want. He was very patient with me as we made many trips to look at homes before i found the one i wanted. I would recommend Dustin to anyone looking to buy or sell a home , property or a business!!!!!!!!!!!
Dustin is a great realtor who really knows the area and the market. He helped me with two purchases and I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a real estate agent.
Dustin was our realtor when searching for/purchasing 2 very different properties in 2 bery different areas within an hour outside of his "home base". Hence the only reason I rated him 4 and not 5 stars for local knowledge-he did an amazing job finding out as much local info as possible, however, and was willing to travel as much and as quickly as need be to get us what we needed, when we needed it. Dustin was always available, even late and on weekends. His contractor-based knowledge and eye for detail clued us in on a lot of things we would have missed, and he often negotiated discounts we didn't know we were entitled to. We felt taken care of at every step, even far after closing, with Dustin as our realtor.
Dustin showed us several commercial buildings and was very knowledgeable, helpful, and didn't make us feel like we were wasting his time. I would use him again and I would recommend him anytime to anyone shopping for a home or commercial. Thanks for helping us search. Marla Hedman
