Testimonials

The sale of Lennons Hotel & Plaza Brisbane in 2012 represented one of the fund's more challenging divestments. Dean Humphries' strong understanding of the market and his ability to strategically align the correct buyers to this asset, enabled us to achieve a highly satisfactory outcome for our shareholders.

I found Dean to be a highly professional and motivated individual who worked hard to ensure our desired outcomes were met in a timely manner

Abacus Property Group

Dean Humphries and his hotel team have an exceptional knowledge of the New Zealand and South Pacific hospitality markets, having assisted our group in a range of advisory and acquisition roles. Their client focused attitude and dedication to the many tasks we have entrusted them with sets them above others in this sector of the industry.

Dean has taken an active interest in our portfolio and has in a number of cases gone well beyond his mandated requirements to ensure we make the right decisions based on the core objectives of our group business. He is a trusted advisor to our family and group.

One example was when we inspected a hotel in Christchurch in the night of the 7.1 magnitude earthquake. Dean made sure we were all safely out of the building and then found us safe shelter until we were able to travel back to Auckland.
