What Clients Have Said About Me

ABOVE AND BEYOND! Denis was recommended to us by friends who had just moved to Fort Mill and thank goodness he was! We began the home search process out of state and Denis was always available by phone and email- almost immediately. We had done our research online- looking at homes, school districts and specific neighborhoods. No matter how much research we did, there was no substitute for Denis’ knowledge. After making recommendations on specific neighborhoods, Denis still look us to the areas that he felt would be less desirable to us so we could see first hand and make our own educated decision. His understanding of the market and attention to our needs allowed us to quickly narrow our search from dozens of homes to the final three. In the end we found the perfect home for us based on the neighborhood, schools, commute and amenities in the area. Though we knew we had to make a quick decision based on our relocation time frame, he did not pressure us, and even encouraged us to take a step back to make the right decision. When we made our offer, he negotiated on our behalf and had the builder include upgrades we never would have thought possible.Above and beyond is the exact description for Denis and his services. His continuous personal touch, prior to, during and after our home purchase was incredible. From rescheduling his vacation, driving me to the airport, coordinating movers and offering daycare, Denis is top notch! We felt like we had to be his only clients and weeks later we still talk a daily basis.

– Bratt & Stacy Lindahl

I recently relocated from Ohio to North Carolina.
Denis Arnautovic is the representation of the difference between ordinary and extraordinary. His professionalism, knowledge, engagement and customer focus made my relocation process much easier.
His knowledge of the area around Charlotte made me feel comfortable with the options I was presented. His market analysis gave support when came the time to make a decision on our house and his negotiation skills put us on an excellent position.
He was always ahead of the game responding immediately to any question or concern during the process making regular follow ups to ensure that everything was on time and done correctly.
His continuous personal touch after the deal was closed indicates his attitude toward his clients.
I went through other relocation processes during my career. The majority of the times the process was completed as expected. But Denis over delivered. Flawlessly. His passion is clear. I would recommend him without any remark. Excellent choice.

– Claudio & Alessandra Rossella

“I am very impressed with his service. In fact I was expecting to sell my home at a cheaper price and Denis recommend that I increase my asking price as he showed comparable prices in the neighborhood. With his service recommendations and advertisement this home was under contract in five days, for a price higher than what I was expecting. Closing this deal fast having no stress, easy to work with, great communication just overall amazing experience!”

– GM Homes INC

His level of service, attention and care are the best I’ve ever seen. In the short time we’ve known him he’s already become a trusted advisor and friend. id recommend him in a heartbeat (and will certainly use him again if my 5th relocation comes around!)”

– JC Procter & Gamble

“This is the first review I have every written for anything that wasn’t required for work or school. However, I felt that I should tell everyone how great of an experience it was working with Denis. As a first time home buyer, you will hear many negative or lack luster experiences about how Real Estate Agents aren’t worth their price from individuals who went through the home-buying process with an agent. After working with Denis, I was very impressed with his professional integrity, knowledge, experience, interpersonal skills and hard work. Denis help insure that my experience was stress free with making the biggest investment of my life.”

I would recommend Denis to all of my friends and family.”

“Denis did a wonderful job helping me secure an office in uptown. He was always available and went out of his way to scout potential locations for me, always cognizant of my budget. He brokered a great deal and even introduced himself to the security in the building so that they would be expecting me when I moved in. He is very knowledgeable with Charlotte and all of its surrounding areas, and has that special talent of making you feel like you are his only client, with 100% of his attention. No matter what your real estate needs are, Denis is the only one I would recommend!”

We enjoyed our time looking for our next home and I would not hesitate to recommend Denis to anyone looking for a home in the Charlotte area.”

You will feel like he is a friend more then a Realtor. Will use him again for all real estate needs!”

– Chris Taylor

“Denis went above and beyond to look out for my best interest. An agent stated their clients house would sell quickly as they made an offer on my home with this contingency to close my deal. Denis drove out to the neighborhood and noticed numerous homes for sale and the potential for a quick sale was slim. Denis number one priority is his client.”

– Chuck Taylor

“Denis helped us with our Commercial Real Estate search and lease negotiations for our new office space in the Ballantyne area. He was very knowledgeable about South Charlotte area that we were targeting and was very diligent and responsive in helping us find spaces that may fit our needs, especially considering that we changed our minds on size, location, lease-term, etc. on multiple occasions. He very quickly readjusted the search criteria and lined-up showings with each change we threw at him and made us feel like we were his only client. The whole process went very smoothly and we would gladly work with Denis again, as well as refer him to other companies.”

– William & Marissa Lemen

Denis went over and above his work as my agent. Denis went out to scout neighborhoods to find the perfect home I was looking for and matched the home I wanted to find. He also used his knowledge and negotiation skills to lower the price and costs with my home purchase. Fantastic work! I would refer him to anyone. Thanks again!

– Paul & Heather Jennissen

I could not be happier than I was with Denis. It’s true that Denis was able to sell my home in a timely fashion at the price I wanted but that’s not the main reason I can recommend him. I never worried…. I never wanted for information…. I never had to chase him down for anything. Peace of mind is worth so much when you’re looking to sell or buy a home. That’s what I got more out of from Denis. You should hire him. Period.

– Tommy Ballard

Thanks to Denis, not only did the whole ordeal go very smoothly , he made sure we were satisfied with and enjoyed every aspect of the whole home buying process ! I can surely say Denis went above and beyond to make sure we found our dream home! He was very patient and helpful at every step . He still continues to help and guide even after the completion of the process . To us he is more like family than a realtor . Thank you Denis for everything.

– Sai Lakshmi

Denis is an amazing professional to work with … we are first time home buyers and to say the least came with a ton of “wants” around what we wanted in our prospective new house. Denis was very patient through the entire process and guided us in a way where we never felt rushed and more importantly saw him as a partner who was personally invested in ensuring that we landed the right place. Thank You Denis for everything ..

– Amit Thummalla

Our house sold in three days. We owe that to Denny. He is very knowledgable on the correct value of a home. He gave great advice on getting our home sale ready and took care of all the hard work. He is always just a phone call away. If he doesn’t know the answers, he will not stop till he gets it for you. His determination is inspiring!

– James & Katie Moser

Great guy,easy to work with, always ready to answer all the questions and he was always available when ever I needed him. Hi just make my life easier in all the buying the house process, I would highly recommend him.

– Renato Pipic

The process of picking and buying a house can be pretty overwhelming. Denis made the experience go seamlessly! His professionalism and knowledge is so impressive. If he didn’t already know the answer to a question of mine, he would have a thorough answer in an extremely timely manner. I felt so comfortable knowing that Denis was on my team, he fully had my trust and I knew I could call on him for anything. I would, and will, recommend Denis to any person in need of a realtor!

– Tiffany Tolbert

I will never go through another realtor again after working with Denis. From the first step of the process until even after closing, Denis has made a stressful time actually nearly stress free. He truly fights for his clients best interest! His negotiating skills are stupendous and his customer service is beyond, beyond, beyond anything I ever expected in a realtor, or any service professional for that matter. He never made me feel bad for asking questions or asking for further information and was extremely timely in responding in all forms of communication whether it be text, email, phone or even in person. He handled all aspects of the process. Whenever I would ask about something I needed to do, Denis responded “I will handle it.” And he did!!
One example of his exceptional customer service is in something so minor as to buy and put in weather stripping on a door after we closed. My husband and I went to lunch to celebrate the closing and Denis…. he went to the hardware store. When we got back to the house, the weather stripping was done, new locks and keys were sitting on the counter along with a nice housewarming gift, and Denis had already texted welcoming us home.
We had an issue with the house the day after closing and when I told Denis, he jumped right in and handled that too so we could focus on moving.
His contacts in this area are extremely helpful whether you want to get a fence estimate, tree estimate, movers…. you name it and he will provide you his contacts in a pressure free manner. Use them or don’t, Denis does not care. He just wants to help make this exciting time in life as stress free as possible.
The best part is… wonderful of a realtor he is….he is just as amazing of a person! I will recommend him to anyone!

– Dr. Michelle Evans

I have purchased 7 houses over the last 16 hears due to job transfers. Hands down, Denis was the best realtor I have ever worked with. His knowledge of the area including schools, businesses, shopping etc. were extremely helpful. His background has also taught him to have a keen eye for good vs bad construction. He was unbelievably proactive throughout the buying process and prompt to answer any question we had. He took great care of us throughout the process and has been extremely helpful after the purchase leading us to needed services going forward for our home. Will definitely work with Denis in the future!

– Matt Gordon

To say that our experience with Deni was incredible is a complete understatement. From the beginning he was thorough, kind, funny, knowledgeable, and incredibly welcoming. His knowledge of the greater Charlotte area is unsurpassed! Deni was able to help us find a home that fit all our needs and was in our budget with such ease. He truly has made us feel like family and has taken care of everything we have needed from financing, contractors, restaurants, relocation advice, and just an ear when we had questions. When he says he will give you the white glove treatment he truly means it! We would never dream of suggesting anyone but Deni for all your realtor needs!

– Joshua & Danielle Mather

Denis was fantastic! We originally put our house on the market “for sale by owner” and met Denis when he viewed our home for a prospective buyer. During that viewing Denis never asked or made a pitch to list our home. He instead provided us with a lot of great information on things we could do to improve our listing, agencies and agents that were good, and also current market information. Denis was professional, honest, knowledgeable, and insightful. We felt very comfortable right from that first interaction with Denis and after another month trying to sell our own home we decided to go with him for our listing agent. Denis continued to exceed all our expectations and went above and beyond to get our home sold. Denis is proactive when it comes to a selling agent. He is not one to list your home and wait for phone to ring. He updated us on a regular basis on how our home was doing on the market and advising us on what if anything we needed to do. My wife and I would both highly recommend Denis to anyone looking for an agent, whether to buy or sell.

– Rick Vanderploeg

Denis Arnautovic is the best Realtor we have ever known . Denis listened to our needs and showed us only the homes he would live in himself. Denis is very professional and provided us with “the White Glove” treatment. He was able to provide us with recommendations for movers, AC service companies, Mortgage lenders, Handy Man, etc. Denis has great knowledge about the Carolina market and gave us great advice on making a home purchase that will have the best resale value. Denis has a network of associates that value his experience and knowledge of the market. I am not a trusting person, but I trust Denis Arnautovich 100%. He is a good, honest hard working man who treated us like we were his only clients. I fully recommend Denis to anyone moving to the Charlotte area. You will glad you chose Denis.

– Frank & Sarah Arcenaux

Where the Magic Happens!!! When you can interpret and forecast the customer’s needs, beyond what the customer even needs, that is the Gift of Denis Arnautovic!!! We are from out of state, relocation, to SC and Denis spent hours with us going over things we hadn’t even considered, location, economics, community, and culture. Wow!!! Denis is amazing, he fought for the price of our home, needed repairs, and credits for the Closing. He even helped with our Power of Attorney paperwork, so that my husband could close on my behalf. Denis took care of every detail big and small. I also want to say, if you call or reach…he ALWAYS answers you, no matter what. Denis has guided us on necessary home repairs and items that still have shelf life, fix later. He is so knowledgeable and we will be friends, long after this purchase!!!!
