What started as a typical couple and our struggle to gain control of and manage our finances, is now a thriving team committed to partnering with you on the journey of growing wealth, wisdom and worth through investing in real estate and yourself for life exponential.
We, Ken and Yetta Dekker, have had the honour of serving clients for over 33 years helping over 3117 families create an accumulated wealth of over 357,000,000 dollars. We have been married beyond 40 years and have the privilege of working alongside our adult children, as well as many amazing team members. We are international speakers, authors, mentors, real estate investors, founders of Solid Rock Realty, Dekker Team and Double Dekker LIFE.
“I am one of four siblings and our mother is in advanced stages of Altzheimer’s and our father is in the early stages of Dementia. As you can imagine, this requires a delicate touch and professional discretion. It also requires an open communication style capable of informing and guiding four separate adults (we four siblings) living in different countries and different cities. Yetta was the perfect choice. We four siblings are very pleased with Yetta’s representation of our parents’ interests. We would highly recommend Yetta as an agent.”
“As a first time homebuyer I had the pleasure of working with Leah Dixon. She was very knowledgeable and helpful for people like me who don’t know much about the home buying experience. She answered my many many questions in a very timely fashion. Thanks Leah!”
“The one thing that stood out the most for me about the Dekker team was their relationships that they build. Their strategy in Real Estate is like nothing I have come across before. They build deep meaningful connections with their clients but also other real estate agents, lenders and brokers. We have experienced more deals and more success because of the relationships they build and we are blessed to be one of those success stories as well.”

“Leah and Ken were an absolute pleasure to work with! Sold our home in 6 days, high above our asking price. We were thrilled with our experience with the Dekker Team!”
“We engaged Ken and Yetta Dekker as our buyers’ broker, and we were very pleased with their wonderful help, backed by their exceptional real estate experience.
We had been talking casually with Yetta for some time about purchasing a multi-family home and had been watching their Wednesday podcasts. Based upon these insights, we knew that we were faced with a challenge to purchase a property in what was clearly a sellers’ market.
Yetta provided us with her undivided attention on a Zoom call, where she skillfully explored our aspirations and navigated the complexities of our unique situation. She recognized that we would benefit from the services of a mortgage broker and recommended a seasoned professional.
We found an exciting property which had a short window of time to receive offers. Yetta promptly arranged for us to view this out-of-town location. Ken and Yetta’s personal experience with investing provided us invaluable insights as we explored this multi-plex and gave us the confidence to make an offer.
Yetta’s superlative negotiating skills resulted in our offer being accepted over nine others.
Throughout this process, we have felt Yetta’s focused attention and support. We highly recommend the Dekker Team for their caring and consummate service.”

“I worked with Leah Dixon buying my first home and was really impressed with the service I received! She took the time to explain everything to me, was flexible and accommodating and was great at follow up. I highly recommend the Dekker Team!”
“Our relationship with the Dekker Team over the past year could be described as a family affair!! Here we are, 5 separate real estate transactions later, and most grateful for the 30+ years of experience the Dekker Team leveraged to guide all of us through an unpredictable and volatile time for real estate. The things the Martin clan liked most about our respective experiences with the Dekker Team were 1) We were supported by a small team of people who in turn support each other. 2) They are genuinely nice people, who know how to communicate and negotiate on your behalf. Other realtors respond well to them. 3) The team’s experience and attention to detail is obvious. They are part of a network that stays current with what’s going on in the market and they adjust the sell/buy strategies proposed to clients accordingly. 4) Making decisions based on actual data is part of my DNA. They helped me source, extract and interpret the sales data correctly. 5) Their extended team, including photographers, home inspectors and real estate lawyers also provide the same high quality of service. Thank you Dekker Team for all that you have done for our family!”

“We met Ken at a financial fitness seminar that he was facilitating. Our pre-marital counselor required us to take it because we were so not on the same page with our financial beliefs. As a matter of fact, not in the same book or even in the same library. I, Roz, had had two bankruptcies and Sean was in debt 40K. We were renting and I did not desire to own ever again and Sean wanted to own and invest but it only seemed like a dream based on our current situation. After the seminar, we made immediate changes in our spending habits and read the Wealth Formula by Ken Dekker. A year later we bought our first home together and two years later we bought our first of many investment properties with the Dekker Team. With their wise counsel and our continued learning, we have been able to take our net equity from minus 40K to just under a million dollars positive equity in approximately 5 years. What an exhilarating ride it has been.”

“We found the Dekker Team, and notably Yetta and Ken Dekker, to be at the “top of their game”. They showed remarkable expertise and knowledge of the real estate market in Ottawa, guiding us through their winning and proficient marketing strategy. The selection of an appropriate list price, professional pictures and videos, along with practical staging tips, provided the perfect conditions for generating a high level of interest in our property. After one week, 31 showings and multiple offers, Yetta skillfully negotiated an amazing purchase agreement. Throughout this very rapid and painless process, we were quite impressed with their modern communication tools, which allowed us to approve and sign documents necessary for listing and selling our home with the click of a mouse. These applications proved to be extremely efficient, especially in these COVID times. We have absolutely no reservations in recommending the Dekker Team, of Solid Rock Realty, to anyone contemplating buying or selling a home in the Ottawa area.”
