"Recently we listed our business with Dennis and within four months it had the SOLD SIGN on it.

So quick we were in shock especially in this economic climate we would like to express our thanks for the professional and efficient manner Dennis went about selling our business. Nothing was any trouble, all our questions we bombarded him with were dealt with efficiently and quickly which is what you want when selling.

We would have no hesitation in listing with Bayleys and having Dennis as our agent again.

Good luck Dennis for the future and thank you."

Michelle & Kevin Sowman


"We have had the most positive experience having Dennis Christian represent us as an agent in the sale of our property. From our first meeting his up-beat manner and enthusiasm appealed to us, and our confidence in his efforts on our behalf continued during the marketing period and every communication throughout. This culminated in a fantastic result which exceeded our expectations. The ease and speed with which he handled the sale process gives us complete confidence in recommending Dennis and Bayleys to any prospective vendors of any type of property in Nelson/Tasman."

"Real estate transactions are amongst the most important and stressful periods in our lives. Crucial in the process is the choice of an agent who has integrity, expertise, and enthusiasm in serving the best interests of the client.

In Dennis Christian you will not find a more committed and dedicated professional. A man who has the ability to blend an empathetic personal approach with an intuitive, attentive and highly professional service. I recommend him without reservation."
