Mike von Dehn (He/Him/His)
Professional Licensed Realtor, Guelph

I am a Guelph based Realtor born and raised in this city. I have been a Real Estate agent for 10 years and have consistently been a top producer at my brokerage. I am honest, trustworthy, easygoing and bring a vast knowledge of the Real Estate world to every client that I work with.

Lindsey Glavaz (She/Her/Hers)
Licensed Real Estate Assistant

Besides my love for homes, I became a realtor because making a difference in people’s lives is what makes me happiest. When you are helping someone buy or sell their home; they are trusting you to be their “person”. It’s a responsibility I take seriously and pride myself for always going above and beyond for clients. 

I specialize in the Guelph (and surrounding area) real estate market and am very knowledgeable of the community, acquired from personal and professional experience. This allows me to have the information clients need to make the right decisions when it comes to buying or selling real estate. 

On a more personal note, supporting my local community is important to me. There are so many incredible organizations, small businesses, and places to explore in Guelph! I am also a mother of two children, have a slight obsession with plants, and always enjoy a cup of hot coffee paired with a good conversation.

Micky Shepherd (He/Him/His)
Supporting Real Estate Agent

When I became a realtor a few years back, I realized I had found a career that combined my background in philosophy and carpentry/contracting with my love of helping people.

Whereas studying philosophy taught me critical analysis (among any number of other things), building my carpentry/contracting business brought that critical analysis to bear on concrete, tangible problems.  In short I’m a people person who loves a good challenge and knows houses through and through.

Raman Subherwal (He/Him/His)
Supporting Real Estate Agent

With over 18 years dedicated to customer service and a Degree in Computer Information Systems & Design, I’m here to bring my unique blend of technical expertise and earnest ambition to your real estate journey. My diverse background in luxury automotive retail and information technology adds a new perspective to the scene.

Born and raised in the UK, I made the leap across the pond to Canada in 2019, but Guelph already felt like a second home. I had been a frequent visitor for at least a decade before that. Originally from a quaint town in Kent, England, my wife’s roots in Guelph run deep — this is where she spent her high school years.

As a dad of two, I get the family vibe. And as a Guelph local, this city has my heart. From cozy family homes to urban gems.

As a realtor, my passion lies in connecting with people and making genuine relationships. I am all about building real connections. I believe that this is what makes me a good fit for the von Dehn Homes team.

Additionally, I admire the group’s compassionate energy and their commitment to sustainability. I am tech savvy and like to use my skills to improve efficiency and reduce waste of resources. I like to incorporate this ideal into my everyday life as well as in business.

Beyond real estate, my family and I are passionate vegetarian foodies who love exploring local eateries and experimenting with new flavors. We’re always on the hunt for the perfect culinary experience.

When I’m not helping you find your dream home, you’ll likely find me exploring new destinations. Traveling has been a passion for years, and I particularly enjoy long hikes to soak in the beauty of each new place I visit.

Gabrielle Smith (She/Her/Hers)
Administrative Assistant

I joined the von Dehn Homes team in January of 2022 as their Administrative Assistant. Working with people who truly care for their clients and their profession is so inspiring and fun! We try not to take things too seriously and see and treat clients as people. It’s exactly how I would want to be treated if I was buying or selling my home. I love getting to know all of our clients and working closely with them. I also get the opportunity to get my creative juices flowing with managing Mike’s Social Media, Website and coming soon, von Dehn Homes Blog!

 A little bit about me; we moved from a small town to Guelph 7 years ago. It was one of the best decisions we have made, we love it here! When I’m not at the rink, the track or the lacrosse field with our 2 kids (which is almost always), I’m out walking or out on a local patio with my best girlfriends.

Mike is a wonderful realtor. As first time home buyers, Mike was very patient and responsive with all of our questions and concerns. I will definitely be recommending Mike to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Mike supported us on our house hunt and house sale. He knew when we found 'the one' that we had to act quickly given the current market and he walked us through the process professionally and confidently. When it came time to sell our home, it was a very stressful time personally for us and he was so supportive by checking up on us and offering help where he could with home staging, making recommendations - you name it. There are many reasons Mike has such a solid reputation in his field - he's not only the best real estate agent, he's an all-around good human.

My partner and I found a recommendation for Mike randomly on an online real estate forum and we couldn't be happier that we did! Mike is kind, knowledgable, patient, and hard working. Being a first-time home buyer is scary enough, and in the current market, even scarier. Mike walked us through every step of the process, never pressured us to make any decisions we weren't comfortable with, and helped us purchase our dream home within a couple months of starting our search. Whether it was giving us video tours of houses we couldn't make it to see in person, helping us make well-informed offers, or simply being a text message or phone call away to answer any and all of our questions, big or small, we couldn't have asked for a better partner in our home buying journey. Thanks Mike!

I 100% recommend Mike von Dehn. I'll be totally candid: Prior to meeting Mike, my experiences with real estate agents have ranged from at best, fine, to at worst, nightmarish. Mike was the first agent I've encountered who truly brought value to our relationship and left me feeling like I netted out much better than I would have if I had chosen a more DIY route. Three things I appreciated about Mike: 1) I reached out to Mike due to common interests and values around sustainability that I gleaned from his social media feed. His compassion in this realm and centering of the interests of others really translated to his real estate practice. Unlike previous real estate transactions, I felt like I was more than simply a means to a commission; he really did put my interests first. 2) Mike kept me in the loop from beginning to end. He shared all his strategy, thought processes, recommendations, etc., all the while emphasizing that I was in the driver's seat when it came to decision-making. It really did feel like a team effort. With other agents, I've often felt like I wasn't a part of the process and was left questioning how much value they truly brought to the table if they weren't being transparent in their work. 3) Most importantly, I'm certain I did much better in the sale of my home with Mike than I would have if I had gone it alone or with another agent. With increasing housing prices, commissions growing in proportion, and the availability of online alternatives, it's hard not to contemplate a DIY approach. In fact, I was originally going to go this route but I'm glad I connected with Mike. He and his photographer colleague really made my place shine. Their work attracted several good offers and the one I ultimately accepted left me confident that reaching out to Mike had been the right decision. I fully recommend Mike von Dehn and will be contacting him again if I ever decide to get back into the market in Guelph or the surrounding area. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.

My husband AJ and I have worked with Mike on several occasions, and we have nothing but great things to say about him. He was extremely responsive to our questions and desire to view homes at a moment's notice. He was competitive and worked hard to get us our asking prices and more, and was extremely patient while we worked to find our dream home together. He even helped us move in! We couldn't have asked for a better realtor, who we are also happy to call a friend.

Mike was our agent for the sale of our home and the purchase of our new one. His calm, considered, professional, and friendly approach helped us through the inevitable stresses of the process. I can't image a person more suited to the important role he played in our lives.

Big big thank you Mike Von Dehn! When I started my search for my next home, Mike was my first and only phone call. We had the opportunity to work together 6 years ago when I moved to Guelph and I knew he was the only person I wanted to work with again! Mike's friendly demeanour and advice based approach is extremely helpful, whether you are a first time buyer, upsizing or an investor. I am ecstatic with both my purchase and sale. There was a lot of hard work put in by all of us; Mike's advice, planning a great strategy, supported by his strong understanding of current real estate market conditions took us over the top! Inevitably when I'm ready to move on again, I will only connect back with you. Thank you so much for everything!

We worked with Mike to buy our first house and he was great from start to finish. He knows the market and takes the time to educate you and make sure you feel comfortable with everything. He was patient (definitely not pushy) and is a great person in general which was really important to us for such a big purchase. We're grateful that he was recommended to us!
