Born and bred at Riversdale Beach, community-minded Adrian Denniston – or Adrian to those who know him – thrives on the pleasure that comes with living and working in a close-knit beach community.

With 14 years’ experience in real estate, Adrians focus lies in Riversdale beach, where he has enjoyed a fantastic level of success and garnered an unrivalled reputation for achieving premium results for locals and holiday-makers alike, whether they be selling up or seeking their dream getaway property.

Local through and through, Adrian prides himself on the relationships he holds within the community, some built through childhood, others fostered through his career in property. After attending the local school and boarding school in Masterton , Adrian was in a shearing gang before moving on to managing his family farm, that lead into a career in real estate, allowing him to combine his love for the community with his excellent sales skills and desire to provide an optimum service. He is passionate about all the village has to offer, including the lifestyle and relaxed attitude that comes from being at the beach, and is an active supporter of local groups, clubs, and new initiatives.

Describing himself as honest, straight to the point and reliable, when he’s not selling property or immersing himself in village happenings, you could find Adrian spending time with his wife and family, riding his motorbike or socialising around the beach with the fantastic community that expands on weekends and holidays.

If you are considering selling your Riversdale beach property, or are interested in purchasing a slice of paradise, contact Adrian, a true advocate for the community.

“I have known Adrian ‘AJ’ Denniston for over 12 years and have personally brought and sold property utilising his services as a property sales person at Riversdale Beach, and have also experienced his hugely impressive skillset as a sales associate in my role as lawyer to a number of his vendor and purchaser clients over that period.

In my mind Adrian is a standout among all the real estate sales people I have ever dealt with and I don’t attribute that accolade to him lightly, as I have dealt with many excellent sales professionals over the years.

He is always extremely professional , skilful and thorough throughout the sale and purchase process. He works in a small tight-knit community at Riverdale Beach where confidentiality, integrity and sensitivity is especially critical.

Adrian always, in my experience, meets the high standards required in those areas. He is tenacious and determined in getting the best results for his clients so both vendor and purchaser can experience a win/ win .

He takes a holistic approach and focusses, in my experience, on the best outcome for his clients as people - not just the business or financial outcome - a rare quality in the property industry.
On top of his real estate skillset Adrian has an encyclopaedic knowledge of all the key service providers and community organisations you will need as a property owner in Riversdale Beach or the wider Wairarapa – a hugely valuable resource to people new to the area!

I highly recommend Adrian – you won’t find anyone better”
