We contacted Denise after a different agent failed to sell our dad's house. She was very helpful and had a much more realistic assessment of what we needed to do to get it sold. Very easy to work with, even though none of our family was resident in the area.

Glad we could provide a high level of service and knowledge to get your Dad's home sold! The technology we use is great to help our distant clients as well as local! Thank you a million for the wonderful review and hope to be able to help more just like you!
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!
