She is a joy to work with in person, over the phone, and with internet searches. She listened to what we wanted and found us our perfect home. She is a true professional.
She knew we just had to wait for the right buyer. She never wavered in her confidence even when we did. Each time some odd thing happened (parent of buyers stalking the home, buyers coming for second showing just to see the decor they wanted for the home they were going to purchase - not ours!), she confirmed these were not typical and that everything would work out in the end. She was right. It all did. Her patience and calm led to our patience and calm. Her professional demeanor led to trust. Her ethical standards are beyond question. We won't hesitate to both recommend Denise as well as call her immediately if we ever need to go through this process again.
She was very professional while at the same time very warm and caring. Rarely have I worked with anyone who I have enjoyed so much. I would highly recommend Denise to anyone who wants a knowledgable, observant, caring agent. She delivers!! Anne Conrad
Staging is so important for images on the internet and showings! I was open to her ideas and she did not disappoint! I removed area rugs (painful, because they were coordinated and good quality) as well as a lot of furniture. Denise then added some of her own accents (knowing what Buyers today are looking for. ). Bottom line: She created a beautiful aura of peace and tranquility, inviting to my Buyers.
It took a while but she did it. She kind and very helpful. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor. I could not fil out excellent negotiator. - rate would be 5 Additionally, was responsive rate - 5
I had lived in the same house for 40 years and needed to downsize to a condo. She patiently walked me through the steps to take to get my home ready to sell. She was always there if I felt overwhelmed. Following her suggestions, my home sold in 3 days for more than asking price. You cannot go wrong with Denise at your side.
She was succinct, insightful, and professional at every phase of the sale of our house, resulting in the desired result; an offer on the fifth day of listing and a contract signed on the sixth. I've already referred people to her, and will do so again if called upon.
Not only did she listen to us and provide meaningful feedback and advice, she was always responsive to our calls and emails. We were extremely impressed with her understanding of the market and savvy marketing plan--especially how she pro-actively pre-marketed our home, before it was listed. In fact, thanks to Denise, we had a contract in hand, two days before our house was actually on the market!
She has a warm and friendly personality that invites confidence in her ability to be of help in any way she can. I would heartily recommend her without reservation to anyone wanting to buy a home.
She walked with us through the whole process and kept us informed. We would definitely recommend her to others.
We are so glad we had her as a realtor. She really helped us find the home that was just the right fit for our family. And she was always so willing to help and support us along the way! Thank you, Denise!
She’s helped my on both the buy and sell side, and has gone above and beyond to exceed expectations with integrity, expertise, and professionalism.
She is a true professional who made an intimidating process smooth and successful. We appreciated her hand-holding and quick accessibility since we had not made a move in 20 years.
We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a new home.
She was very thoughtful, insightful, and coordinated many, many tours for us until we found our dream house. She went above and beyond and we are grateful we worked with her!
We are extremely pleased with her service and would highly recommend her!
Her knowledge and expertise helped us prepare our house for putting on the market. Then it sold in less than a week and over the asking price!
It was clear that she truly cared about us and worked hard to help us. We would most definitely recommend Denise and would love to work with her again.
She really spent a lot of effort in getting our house out in the public eye and it finally sold. We were so grateful for her relentless attention to detail.
Her availability is excellent and we appreciate her responsiveness to our questions. Advocating on our behalf, especially with a difficult buyer, was critical in helping us to focus our thoughts and move the sale forward to "clear to close".
She helped us through this confusing process of both selling a house and buying a house simultaneously. The house sold exceptionally quick, and we were able to find the right house. Our realtor was an expert of our geographical area of interest.
She made our process with both properties sail smoothly! Her extensive knowledge of our neighborhood gave us an edge with pricing and showing. Her advice at every step of the way with preparing our house for sale, and then negotiating the many paper signing and loan details was a lifesaver. When we had a question, Denise was immediately available for consultation. The last days of closing and finances and fees would have been bewildering without her calm assurance and guidance. We have recommended Denise to several of our friends and family. A family friend recently had Denise help them sell near us and are thrilled also with her help.
She helped us find our home then, so when we made the decision to move, we contacted her because she had done a great job for us. Denise was honest about what to expect with the market and price and even helped us to stage our home to appeal to more buyers. She was always available if we had questions and made sure to keep us updated on any feedback we had from showings. We highly recommend Denise for buying or selling in the Glen Ellyn/Wheaton area. If we decide to buy in the area again, she will definitely be the person we reach out to help us with our search!
Denise was always available to answer questions, talk through scenarios or give her much appreciated expert advice. More than anything, my husband and I appreciate that Denise genuinely cared about us as people, rather than just parts of a transaction. We have been privileged to have Denise as our partner and advocate.
She is such a wonderful person and took a personal interest in us. She was quick to respond and take care of any issues in all of our interactions. We highly recommend her as a knowledgeable and friendly agent.
She walked with us through every step--from staging to closing--alleviating our many anxieties along the way. Because of her careful research, attention to detail, and skillful negotiating, Denise sold our house in one day for a higher asking price than expected. She was an invaluable resource, a calming presence, and a trusted ally.
She guides sellers through the entire process, step by step, and assists in alleviating a lot of stress! Denise sold my home in just a few days, and now I am happily in my new home.
We had many road blocks but she kept fighting for us. Her knowledge of the industry and her determination got our deal done. She kept us calm when we got frustrated. We are very grateful for her and all her hard work and many hours.
She is professional, thorough and follows through with everything she says she will do.
We were pleased with the whole experience of working with her and would recommend her to anyone.
Her staging advice was particularly great, and really made our house shine.
I thought she did an exceptional job of educating and guiding me through the whole selling process...including the staging, pricing, listing, negotiating and closing. She was positive and encouraging, handling unexpected issues calmly and professionally, taking the stress out of the whole process. She was great. Clearly she was very experienced and knowledgeable about the market and the business. Denise communicated easily and clearly. She was very personable and thoughtful, going out of her way to make herself available by text or phone. I will be recommending her without reservation to friends who are looking for an excellent realtor!
Her knowledge, experience and strategic thinking amplified our listing. She was able to sell in 3 days at a price higher than we'd thought possible. :D
She did everything we expected and more in a difficult market. 5 Stars!
She did a very good job of finding houses to look at and helped point out things in the house that were and weren't up to par. What helped a lot was that she was very good at filtering out houses that she knew were not the quality she knew we were looking for. This led to a quicker house-finding process. She is also very knowledgeable in all the steps needed to find/buy a house, so whenever we had questions we would just ask her and she knew exactly what we should do. When negotiating, we felt very comfortable in her knowledge of what to ask for. We didn't have any problems and were able to find a house within 2 weeks and close after that within 30-45 days. Thanks Denise!
She had a plan to get it to market, and get it sold at a great price. Every step of the way we knew she was working on our behalf. We are so thankful for the with she put in to make our sale go smoothly!
She clearly knows the market, and did a great job helping manage the process once the Buyer became engaged. I would highly recommend her and refer friends to Denise.
Now we have a wonderful home, so nice as if it were built just for us! She helped us get our condo 12 years ago and now this wonderful house. Thank you so much.
She researched carefully and was great with communication, always quick to respond.
She explained everything up front and answered all of our questions. It was a great experience thanks to her.
She was able to tell us about the neighborhoods of the houses we viewed, pointed out things we may have overlooked in the process, kept everything moving leading up to closing, recommended great service providers for other things we needed, and was all around a pleasure to work with. We'd highly recommend her to others.
She was encouraging every step of the way. Denise even put her vacation on hold to ensure our home closed successfully. She went the extra mile and we are both grateful.
We were relocating from the City, and knew nothing about the market or the area. Denise provided invaluable information about the towns and neighborhoods we searched in. Furthermore, her observations and knowledge of resale potential really helped us navigate our decision. Her thoroughness was helpful to both my husband (a previous homeowner) and myself (a first time home buyer). Finally, Denise is an excellent negotiator. She helped us accomplish our goals, and we ended up with a house that far exceeded our expectations.
We would recommend her to anyone!
Along with several open houses and advertising, she created a high quality multi-paged booklet with excellent photos by a professional photographer and a list of features in each room that buyers might not notice. She understood and kept ahead of all details throughout the listing, negotiating, and closing process. She was a pleasure to work with both professionally and personally.
She was communicative and responsive when asked questions
Our house is sold within 2 weeks ( it would be much faster if our house is in a better location) .
Her knowledge of the local market is exceptional, and we were able to get an offer in just two days despite the situation with the coronavirus. She kept in close touch with us at every step, made amazing suggestions about staging, and offered encouragement and confidence whenever issues arose. We know she is highly respected in the western suburbs, and she deserves every bit of the praise she gets!
She was very thorough and clear in explaining the process to us. She also gave us many suggestions on getting the house set up for a sale. We followed most of her suggestions as they matched our thoughts exactly. We received a lot of interest in the house and sold quickly for the full asking price so we feel that we were priced correctly. Post offer process also went smoothly using the Denise's suggestions and guidance.
I had hoped to sell to just the right family and not a construction company, and we held out and did just that. Denise was pleasant to work with and shared our values which was important to us. Thank you.
As problems were found with the structure of an addition, she continued to seek ways to make the purchase of my house appealing to a developer. She remained optimistic and encouraging despite setbacks.
During our first meeting she spent time telling me all the things she recommended we do to our home before listing it. Her approach is to do only what is necessary to sell and not spend money that you won't get back. By the time we were ready to sell the fixes and updates had been made. When I had questions about when to list, what paint color to use, what size clock to buy for the wall, she was always available and quickly responded. Denise is also a professional home stager. You get her staging expertise along with her excellent realtor skills for the reasonable listing fee. I know that her suggestions made us thousands of dollars in the long run. She provides specific details such as colors of sofa pillows, what items to place on surfaces, what to put inside jars, etc... Our house looked amazing when the photographer came in. Denise even came an hour early to help us with finishing touches. Her photographer was phenomenal. She advised us to price our home competitively and we had an offer above the asking price the very next day. We had about 50 visitors over the course of a few days and even got a backup offer. Denise was a great negotiator throughout the contract process. The entire staff at the law office she works with is brilliant. The inspection, appraisal, and closing process went smoothly. We closed on time. We couldn't have been more pleased.
Easy and fun to work with. Met all expectations.
She has an exceptional knowledge of the market in the DuPage area. Denise was always available and responsive to calls, and excellent in anticipating needs with great attention to details.
She quickly understood which factors and features were most important to us by listening to our reactions to various houses. Her insights, tailored to our needs, proved invaluable as we evaluated dozens of homes. When the first house we negotiated to purchase flooded, she expertly helped us navigate the difficult decision to move on. When another house negotiation fell through, twice, she helped us stay steady and focused on seeking a better fit. When she learned about the house we eventually bought (before it was officially on the market) she instantly recognized the fit, and made it possible for us to be one of the first to see it. Through it all, Denise remained poised, tenacious and gracious, making us feel like we were her highest priority every day.
She has an exceptional knowledge of the market and listed our house $35k above what we expected. We had two offers within the first four days. Denise is thorough, smart and has the highest level of integrity. LIke great realtors, she had a number of other listings on the market at the same time as ours, but her service was like we were her only client. She was always there when we needed her. This is a 6-star realtor - - on a 5-star scale.
Selling and moving are high stress events, but she sought to make the process as painless as possible. Her expertise and professionalism was a joy to observe and, in the end, our home sold for top dollar, far higher than we dreamed was possible. On top of all of this, Denise is a delightful person and we loved every opportunity to interact with this ray of sunshine. We recommend her highly!
Her professionalism and consideration of all parties involved made this the best real estate transaction I have ever experienced.
