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!”

– 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.

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

– Chuck Taylor

– 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!
