Broker/Owner, Bailey Real Estate Advisors, LLC

Dennis began his Leadership and Management Career in 1980 when he entered the United States Air Force, and retired after 20 years.

Dennis is what some brokers in Commercial Real Estate call a "Unicorn", because  a broker usually concentrates on EITHER Residential, or Commercial, not both.  Dennis has proven expertise in both through Experience and Education.  Check out his resume' below.

In 1996, he began his Real Estate Career in San Antonio, Texas.  Dennis was his office's Rookie of the Year in 1997, and Top Producer in 1998 and 1999. He returned to his home-town of Shelby NC in 2000.  

Dennis began his Commercial Real Estate Career and Education in 2001, and hasn't stopped even after achieving the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) Designation, as well as Graduate REALTOR Institute (GRI), Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Short-Sale Foreclosure Resource (SFR), and previously the Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designations.   

Dennis has Managed a Coldwell Banker office and a Realty Executives Franchise, prior to opening Bailey Real Estate Advisors, LLC.  

He has completed over 1,000 transactions, and focuses his commercial efforts on Net-Leased Absolute Net (NNN) Properties, and loves to make his clients more money than they believe is possible.   

Dennis still enjoys Residential Real Estate, because it is just another type of investment that he advises clients about.   Call Dennis so he can  help you reach your goals, with Reliable Investments and Incredible Results!
