Dennis Schipper

Financial Adviser (Property)

Hi, I’m Dennis. As a financial adviser, I’m the initial step for clients wanting to buy their first investment property. 

I love to meet people and help them understand how the investment process works. I thrive on working with people to improve their lives, and the Opes principle of thinking long-term matches my own values. 

I’m pretty keen on sports and enjoying this beautiful country, on weekends you’ll usually find me at the gym, out fishing, or trying not to wipe out on my longboard!

    Our settlement at 6/22 Rutherford Street Woolston went very smoothly

    Our settlement at 6/22 Rutherford Street Woolston went very smoothly, a big thank you to Vivienne for her highly organised work. We had tenants moved in straight away, rent is at $675 per week instead of the old appraisal of $620. It’s a great purchase, thank you Dennis for your recommendation.

    I whole heartedly believe in what Opes provide

    The thing about Opes Partners is that they really are your 'partners' and truly want to help everyone work towards the best possible outcome regardless of situation. As first time investors we, like so many others, were simply astounded by the information, support, team of people and affiliated companies that Opes provide. They put your mind at ease and help guide you through the 10 year plan and process making it exciting and unbelievably easy for what seems a huge step the first time. Unfortunately for us, we were flying high on equity and the low interest rates (early 2022) when we decided to jump on board but did not make some important decisions when required to reduce our debt levels or spending when the economy ran into some issues (late 2022 to 2023). Despite the bank declining the rest of our mortgage 12 months after providing the deposit and the fact we were contractually obligated to complete our purchase, Dennis (our property partner) & Andrew ( Managing Partner) were very understanding of our situation and quick to jump to our aid....once again working as a partnership between us, Opes, the developer, brokers, lawyers and accountants to ensure the best possible outcome for all involved. Although a bitter sweet moment for us at the time, we will forever be indebted to Opes for the way were were treated and helped out of a potentially dire situation. I whole heartedly believe in what Opes provide and once the market recovers, and with our lessons learned, we will touch base again to re-start our 10 year plan!
