Professional Summary

Specialising in commercial and industrial property since 2005, Dean’s local knowledge gives him an exclusive insight to one of New Zealand’s most tightly-held property markets and allows him to advocate on behalf of local and national clients for commercial and industrial properties of any size.

Following his studies at the University of Otago, Dean worked with an international property advisory company, before joining the Colliers International team as a shareholder in 2009. Dean has also become an associate director of Colliers International in 2014.

Having grown up locally, his familiarity with the region has enabled him to cultivate strong connections throughout the Otago and Southland regions that facilitate his ability to meet his clients’ respective needs. His areas of specialisation include sales and leasing of commercial, industrial and retail property, as well as developmental land sales.

As a broker, he is results driven, with a track record to back it up, while the dynamism and enthusiasm he brings to his role have seen him quickly rise to become a leader in the regions property market. An avid outdoorsman, in his spare time Dean is a regular skier and mountain-biker, and is also involved in senior rugby.
