Chris & Jenna were the consummate professionals. Everything they said they would do, they did.
They were so professional and yet very approachable. They were really enthusiastic, helpful and listened to what we wanted. We were really pleased with the follow up meetings every week as they provided us with some really good information. I think that Chris and Jenna work really well as a team.

We had a slow start trying to sell our house privately and then with another agent, receiving no offers. After 3 months we decided to ask Chris and his team to sell our house for us. 2 weeks later we had a sold sticker on our advertising board! If only we had listed with Chris in the first place! Team Nielsen were professional, determined and excellent communicators throughout the sale. They kept us and the buyer informed along the way making for an easy handover on settlement day. We highly recommend Chris and his team for a hassle free sale.
Phillip Moore - Primrose Hill Lane, Regents Park
He got the job done when I couldn't & took all the worry off my shoulders. Got a fair price considering all factors, kept us in the loop regularly. Great service considering it's only our second sale experience.
Friendly, approachable, reliable. Fantastic result.
David Kneller - Sevenoaks Drive, Burnside
We have already passed on the names of Chris and Jenna, we were totally happy with their services, they went the extra mile, beyond what we had ever experienced with other agents [and we had no complaints about our other agents].
Trish Burston - Blighs Road, Strowan
Chris sold my property for me while I was living in Australia. I needed someone I could trust and an agent that could take sole ownership of the sale and Chris did exactly that, while keeping me up to date on the things I needed to know. Through Chris's impeccable property management the home was ready to sell when I needed it sold. We came to a great result and if I'm ever buying or selling I'll be sure to call Chris.
Steven De Villiers - Martbern Crescent, Bishopdale
We built a brand new home in Rolleston and then our circumstances changed- we had a really short time to sell the house before we moved back to the UK, Chris sold our house in 5 short weeks. We could not be happier with the service we received. A friendly, reliable and dedicated guy. Thanks Chris!! Tim & Ollie.
Ollie and Tim McStay - Andesite Drive, Rolleston
Chris recently sold our first home. We had already purchased and needed a reasonably quick sale right on Christmas time. And things couldn't have gone any smoother. We went into a multi offer the day after our first open home. Not only did Chris deliver great results, he kept us fully informed the whole way and was a dream to work with. If you have a property to sell, save yourself time and contact Chris Nielsen first!
Emily and Andrew Malcolm - Willryan Ave, New Brighton
Our townhouse failed to sell with a previous agent, even with an extension to the 90 day contract. Consequently we thought that this property might be difficult to sell. However Team Nielsen took it on and in less than a month we were in a multi offer situation with a good price being negotiated. Chris and Jenna were unfailingly pleasant, professional and approachable. They are excellent communicators and kept in touch with us regularly throughout the process. We can highly recommend them.

I listed my home with Chris Nielsen and Ray White Burnside as I felt the staff and agents had the 'caring' attitude that is often hard to come by. Chris kept me informed with all the details of the sale of my home and I really appreciated the respect he showed throughout the open home process. From start to finish I was impressed and very satisifed with Chris Nielsen and the teams organised approach.
