Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Pittsburgh, PA.
Denise was more than helpful through the process of finding my first home! She was able to get me viewing appointments very quickly on the houses I was interested in. She was very cognizant of my price point and the characteristics I wanted in a house. She is very knowledgable in the industry and was able to point out things about homes that I wouldn't have noticed had she not been there. She was very quick on getting all the paperwork back and forth on my offer and submitted to my lender. Buying a home could have been a really stressful experience, but with Denise it felt super easy thanks to her hard work. I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a house to work with Denise!

Denise is not only extremely educated in the local real estate field, but she also possesses the ability to calm the nerves and smooth out the rough edges of the stressful buying and selling process. She worked with us closely on finding the right new home for us, plus she offered design input to maximize the "sell-ability" of our previous home (which sold in 2 weeks, by the way). We called on several local realtors for assistance selling our home, but needed to look no further once Denise came on the scene because of her vast expertise.
Denise was great to work with! When we first started working with her, she asked the right questions to figure out what my wife and I were looking for. We looked at 7 homes before we found one that suited us. We never felt pushed to put an offer in on a house that we didn't like and she was honest with her own personal opinion.
The house that we chose was a foreclosure that had just come on the market. Her experience and knowledge of how foreclosed homes were bought/sold was a big advantage. She was able to explain the bidding process with multiple bids and give a timeline for when the when the winning offer would be chosen.
Once our offer was selected, she provided good contacts for contractors and closing agents who also have experience working with foreclosed homes. We had a good experience with Denise and would definitely use her again in the future.

Thank you for doing the Zillow review. I greatly appreciate it.

Denise is a great relator! Always there for you and understanding. I purchased my first home at the age of 19 and with so many questions, she seemed to have all the answers which was always reassuring. I wouldn't have wanted my home buying process to be with anyone else. The whole team is great. I cannot thank her enough for everything she did the past few months to help me into my first home!

We have worked with Denise to purchase two rental properties. She is thorough and extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market. She is definitely our realtor of choice and will not hesitate to contact her when we are ready to purchase our next rental property. We would highly recommend Denise for all your buy/sell real estate needs.
I'm a first time home buyer, and Denise made the process so simple for me! She's extremely knowledgeable and helped to guide me in the right direction to find the perfect house. Denise was honest with opinion on the various homes we visited, which was very helpful to me, since I was knew to the home buying process. I would definitely recommend her to friends/family, and will contact her in the future if I find myself looking to buy or sell again!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Delmont, PA.
After working with another agent for months, with no success my husband and I came across Denise at an open house. We very quickly realized that she has the passion, drive and intensity that our previous agent lacked. Denise has a great ability to understand exactly what her clients are looking for. She was able to find us a perfect home , with in a specific budget, in a very competitive and small area. In fact, Denise kept us in mind when our house came on the market even after we had told her that we were giving up the house hunt for a couple months. (I was 6 month pregnant and didn't want to move so close to the baby arriving). She knew that our house was exactly what we were looking for and didn't let my doubts about the time frame interfere. We were able to see the house with it being on the market for less than 12 hours!! Her whole team was very flexible and helpful in showing the house for a second time, as I loved the house so much we put in an offer without my husband seeing it. Again a testament to how well Denise is able to understand EXACTLY what her clients want and need in a home. Needless to say we were able to very quickly go through the first time home buying experience to be in our home well within our needed timeline. I can not express my gratitude for her not giving up on our house hunt. We couldn't be more pleased with our new home and the experience we had with Denise and her team. As our family grows I highly look forward to the day when Denise helps us find our next home. I would highly recommend Denise to anyone that is searching for a new home.
