Boldly independent since 1983.

We started Dexter to chart our own real estate course. Much like the Lower Mainland, we’ve thrived over the past four decades, using our independence to build a brokerage like none other.

Locally owned and managed, Dexter proudly maintains an independent position within a real estate landscape laden with massive franchises. By remaining an agile craft in a sea of ocean liners, we’re able to respond intelligently to the slightest change market winds. We use our independence as a creative pathway—a freedom through which we can develop better, more locally-sensitive strategies and programs. Moreover, the benefit to 40 years of taking the long view is that we don’t just accurately interpret market cycles, we anticipate them.


Dexter is always here to deliver. Whether you’re searching for an oceanfront mansion or a first condo, your success is our agents’ top priority. Dexter has a wide range of agents specializing in the numerous regions of Greater Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, all of whom maintain an unwavering standard of excellence and knowledge.

Together, they hold a remarkable wealth of insight in order to provide you with the guidance you need for your next commercial property investment opportunity.

A history of daring to be different

For nearly four decades we’ve built a brokerage in defiance of industry norms. Not because we sought to be rebellious, rather, because we felt the difference was essential for the benefit of our agents and their clients.

When now President David Peerless and a select group of forward-thinking agents purchased Dexter in 1998, they did so knowing it was the start of something much larger. From our earliest days as a boutique brokerage, Dexter Realty earned a reputation for charting its own real estate course. Having grown to be one of the largest independent brokerages in the Lower Mainland, we never lost sight of the importance of a personalized real estate experience.

In an industry dominated by massive national franchises, Dexter’s edge is our personal, hands-on support with the complementary business model to ensure its viability.

Our Management Team

True leadership means leading both our agents and our industry.

The collective experience of David Peerless, Kevin Skipworth and Tony Iaonnou—owners and managing brokers of Dexter Realty—is extensive. Their industry-wide experience and open, authentic leadership style continues to attract, inspire and support a team of highly regarded agents and expert support staff.

Dave Peerless


As President of a thriving Lower Mainland brokerage, David Peerless sees it as his responsibility to foster the highest level of trust amongst the Dexter team. To that end, he strives to be constantly aware of his people, of their lives, so he can better support them.

Tony Ioannou

Partner and Managing Broker

For Tony, life is too short to do something he doesn’t love. And he loves real estate. Moreover, he’s committed to fostering that love in others through education—training new agents and ensuring Dexter’s agents are the best of the best.

Kevin Skipworth

Partner and Managing Broker

From getting guests a glass of water to guiding Dexter into the social media age, Kevin always stays one-step ahead. He’s dedicated to mentoring every one of his people, earning their confidence and shining a spotlight on all their successes.

“When our agents succeed our clients get the best possible care, and that’s our biggest priority.”

Working Together

Dexter holds the idea of family very dear and always strives to foster a strong community amongst our agents and staff. Dexter prides itself on the dedication our agents have to both their work and to each other. Management is always a phone call away and we encourage our agents to work together in order to learn and grow. With the idea of collaboration at the helm, we feel this creates growth for new and exciting opportunities - amongst our realtors at every turn.  This is what makes our agents great, and our family greater.

Community Involvement

Dexter has invested countless hours into making the world a better place. It is home to a strong community of cyclists and each year we participate in a long distance ride with the Ride2Survive in order to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. We are also proud of the initiatives amongst many of our individual agents. These contributions range from holiday care boxes for transition homes under W.I.N.G.S (Women in Need of Gaining Strength), the Realtors Care Blanket Drive, and participation in the annual Movember Campaign for Men’s Health Awareness. Community outreach has been a keystone piece of Dexter’s history and will continue to be a steadfast piece of our company in the future.
