My Team of Professionals

Most agents promise above average results, to sell your property faster and for more money. No matter how dedicated, the average agent is not much more than that, average. Most operate a one-person show, breaking their backs to deliver the best service they can for their clients. Most agents can't work any harder than they already do, no matter how dedicated, leaving their promise to you unfulfilled.

"I know, because I used to operate this way as well."

I discovered that, in spite of my good intentions, my clients suffered. There are many facets to a real estate transaction and to expect one person to efficiently handle them all is unrealistic. Though you might be appreciative and even sympathetic to your agent's hard work, the quality of your home sale or search suffers as a result of your agent trying to handle everything themselves. You have a right to feel cheated.

I built a team of eight professionals to ensure every step of your transaction is smooth and efficient. With my qualified staff, I can greatly enhance the quality of service I deliver to my clients. This is how other professionals operate and your real estate agent should be no different.

In addition, to my qualified team, I've implemented cutting edge technology to dramatically improve the speed and efficiency of every part of the service we provide.

We don't expect you to worry about the fine-details; what you should care about, however, is this; as a result of the team's specialized knowledge, our client's homes sell for more money and in less time!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $825K in Santa Monica, CA.

I loved working with Denise, her knowledge was almost endless. She was very wise, professional, patient, and always available. I spent 4 months looking for a new home. During that time she helped me get familiar with the market in Santa Monica and help me position myself, so that I was competive enough to get the home I dreamed of! Not only is Denise a real pro, her team is fabulous and offer insight that I didn't even know RE agents had. I have a background in tax accounting, so it was epsically important to me to have an agent with technical expertise.

Lastly, Denise's husband, Randy is a general contractor and could point out what's really going on with each place and the work needed. Between Denise and Randy, they told me what they thought each place was worth, how much work was needed and personally wanted me to buy a house that I loved. They were't just trying to sell me something for a quick commission. In fact, we almost closed on a place that I wasn't 100% sure on. She supported me when I changed my mind on the last day before closing, which lead me to my dream place days later. I will absolutely be using/recommending them in the future.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Playa Del Rey, Playa Del Rey, CA.

I really cannot say enough about Denise, and her whole team at Denise Fast Realty. It really is hard to summarize Denise. If I had to choose one word, it'd be "wise". Denise just has an heir of wisdom about her. Her experience shows through. She is very detail oriented, very hands on, and she cares. You are not just another number to her, she won't brush you aside if some bigger client comes in. She makes herself available to you, and if she's not immediately available she makes sure anyone of the excellent members of her team does get back to you ASAP. Given her long history in realty she gives great advice, and has many contacts. Need a contractor you can trust? Denise will hook you up. She takes her reputation very seriously and she won't recommend someone who will make her look bad. Our purchase was a bumpy road due to the seller and his realtor, but Denise stayed on top of things, was never afraid to back us up, and was always there to hold our hands when we needed it. She is definitely the person you want in your corner. I can never really express how pleased my wife and I are that we came across Denise. She's the best.  More Less
