    My real estate career began in 2007 and since then I have sold properties all over Utah. I enjoy working with prospective buyers and have earned the Accredited Buyers Representative designation, a designation held by relatively few Realtors. I am also a Graduate of the Realtor Institute, and hold the Seniors Real Estate Specialist designation. I specialize in Northern Utah, with most of my business being in Weber County, although I have had clients in Box Elder and Davis Counties as well. My listings ranged from a large ranch property to a one acre recreational site and no property is off limits. I have been active in my community as a volunteer with our local Rodeo and served on the Governor's Sesquicentennial Coordinating Council. I manage our brokerage a Muscular Dystrophy Association golf tournament every year and we have raised nearly $15,000 for the MDA. I have a BS degree in forestry from Southern Illinois University and an MS degree in forest and business management from the same institution. Prior to getting into real estate I had a very successful career managing an Inventory and Monitoring Program with the research branch of the USDA Forest Service.

    Brady gave Dwane 5 stars out of 5
    Dwane is an excellent person! He is easy to talk to, has a great sense of humor, and you can tell he loves his job. We were looking for our first house during the peak of the Market and we put offers on at least 12 houses with Dwane. He was very quick to get our offer ready and submitted. A note about Dwane is he really cares about his clients. He was very honest about what he thought were bad points to any house we looked at and was also knowledgeable about what it would take to do something to a house. We got a great house and we are so glad we had Dwane help us out. He had multiple clients at one time and I never felt like he was too busy for us. Dwane tried his hardest and that's all we could have asked for. Maybe will miss a message or phone call but that was very rare in our experience. We would choose Dwane again and recommend him if you want a good time and a good laugh if house hunting is stressing you out.

    Dwane was extremely helpful and accommodating. We were house searching from another state during COVID and he made himself available whenever we were visiting. He was very knowledgeable in the area and helped us understand the whole house buying process since this was our first house purchase. He was pretty responsive and always responded to us quickly after we reached out. I would definitely recommend him to anyone else searching in the Odgen or surrounding areas.

    Dwane recently helped us find a home in the Ogden area. To say the process was a fun and rewarding would be a bit of a stretch. In fact I have never had more of a difficult time buying a home in my life. And without Dwane'™s help it would have NEVER happened. The market here at the time of this review is chaotic with seller'™s near preying on home buyers like none I have ever seen. Thankfully we had Dwane to guide us through the narrow and craggy passages toward home ownership again. Dwane was very courteous in showing us multiple homes and writing offers that financially would never make sense due to this market. He kept our earnest money safe and was very very careful in taking care of our needs. This market is currently a horror show. I recommend anyone choose Dwane to look after your financial future. We ended up with a lovely home in a wonderful location by sheer will of determination.... and Dwane.

    Dwane was awesome and friendly. I also had the pleasure of meeting his wife. Wonderful woman. Dwane put hundreds of miles on his vehicle while we searched the state for something I liked. I now own a home I plan to retire to.

    Dwayne is a very knowledgeable and professional individual. I would highly recommend utilizing him as your real estate agent. If it was not for him we would not be living in our dream home now. He helped us through the whole process and is very helpful when it comes to all the small details of buying a home.

    Thank you for the outstanding service you provided us Dwane. I especially am grateful for the professionalism and attention to details like home owner warranties and seeing things around the home that we missed. I wholeheartedly recommend retaining Dwane for either buying or selling a home.

    Dwane was beyond amazing! From the first phone call to the settlement table, he made us comfortable and helped us to understand everything. He was excellent with our two young boys as well! I recommend him for anyone who wants an honest realtor!

    I worked with Dwane both as a buyer and as a seller. During this time he was knowledgeable, professional and very responsive to all of my needs. On several occasions he went the extra mile to make the process easier and more beneficial for me. I can not speak more highly of this man

    John gave Dwane 5 stars out of 5
    Dwane was truly professional and always found us houses to look at in the specifications we asked for. He is dedicated in finding the right home and he spent days driving us around or meeting us at any house we wanted to take a look at. Most of the time we saw 3 or more houses a day until we found our new home. He compiles a book with all the houses that you could be interested in and gives you a copy so you can take notes. This way you have time to discuss and compare all the homes you have seen that day/week. We really enjoyed having Dwane as our realtor and highly recommend his services.

    Dwane is an ultra-hard working realtor that always puts his clients' needs first. Each day he had had knowledge of the a new inventory of listings that fit our requirements and was always prepared with a plan to see any/all houses that interested us. Dwane understands the buying/selling processes thoroughly that enabled us to beat out 7 competitive bids to land our dream house quickly in a tough buyer market.

    Cartus Debra gave Dwane 5 stars out of 5
    Our family relocated from out-of-state for a work transfer and had no knowledge of the area. Dwane was completely dedicated to our education of the area and the local market. He was generous with his time and attention to us until we found the home that was right for our family. We trusted him as our advisor and negotiator and he impressed us day after day. We immediately recommended Dwane to a co-worker also relocating from out-of-state. They raved about Dwane and thanked us for the referral. I would definitely recommend him again!

    Richard gave Dwane 5 stars out of 5
    Dwane was our realtor for a relocation to Utah over 2000 miles away from our location. He understood our desires and needs from our first phone conversation and lined up a variety of properties for a very short house hunting trip. Dwane was very accommodating during the search ensuring that we saw even remote properties that were, in retrospect, not what we were looking for. When the location and property that checked all of our requests was found he used his knowledge of the local folks and authorities to clarify some grey areas. He worked tirelessly to bring a very tight deal to a successful closure and helped emmensely with our relocation success.

    Devon gave Dwane 5 stars out of 5
    Dwane completely exceeded our expectations as a realtor. We were first time home buyers who moved from Colorado to Utah and were completely out of our element. Dwane was great about communicating via phone and email before we moved to Utah. We sent him a list of properties we were interested in viewing and once we met Dwane in person, he had organized the listings into a binder with full descriptions of each house. My husband and I found this to be very helpful throughout the entire process. Dwane was always very organized, professional and able to answer the many questions we had. He dedicated two full days of his time to us which ended in us finding our dream home in the perfect area. Dwane and his wife showed us around and took us to dinner. My husband and I really appreciated their hospitality, especially being new to the state. Dwane is an amazing realtor and is experienced in all aspects of his career. He made the entire process a breeze for us. My husband and I truly appreciated Dwane being our realtor.

    We had a flawless experience w/ Dwane Van Hooser, he really went the extra mile for our buying experience, especially because we were out of the area buyers and he would quickly follow up w/ any concerns we had, he has really good knowledge/experience w/ the local area. We highly recommend Dwane for anyone looking to buy/sell. -Matt C.
