Chris Dean - Testimonials

  • I was thrilled and very impressed with Chris's efficiency. (2016)


    Last Sunday in Louis Hayes park I lost my rings. A set of 3, I found 2, but could not find the other. With evening approaching we left the park. On Monday I asked around to my co-workers if they had any ideas as to what I should do about my dilemma. Chris Dean was referred to me by Ken as a person that searched for lost belongings. Tuesday,

    I searched Facebook, befriended him and messaged Mr. Dean explaining that I lost a ring in Louis Hayes park and was curious if he could

    Chris was immediately responsive, and began to ask questions about where, when, how. Very impressed by his thoroughness, I had great confidence he could find it that day. However, because of the misplaced location,

    Chris said he would have to get permission from the parks. I sure am glad he knows what he is doing. Chris and his wife met my family down at Louis Hayes on Tuesday to show him the area where I suspected the ring to be.

    To my horror THE GRASS HAD BEEN MOWED! What if the lawn mower had chewed it up so bad, it was no longer wearable? I was worried, but Chris was reassuring and hopeful. Next day, Chris text me a picture of my lost ring! How exciting! I met Chris after work and put my ring back where it belonged. I was thrilled and very impressed with Chris's efficiency. I cannot give enough thank you's for doing a great job.
