Denise was great to work with. From her initial presentation through closing she did an outstanding job. In addition to all the expected responsibilities she took the time to help us find high quality reasonably priced vendors to help us get the house ready for sale. She went above and beyond as the staging, showings and closing all occurred after we moved. We trusted her completely to represent our best interest throughout the process and she did not disappoint. Her attention to detail and service were unmatched and I would not hesitate to engage her again! If you are looking for an agent who will support you from beginning to end and go above and beyond then you should hire Denise!

We were very fortunate to have Denise as our realtor when we sold our home last year. She knows the market, is extremely professional, very patient, and we highly recommend her.

Denise provided us with an amazing first home buying experience. Even though we were extremely indecisive, she pushed through and helped us find our dream home. It is worth noting that Denise was willing and able to go outside of her normal NJ jurisdiction's to help us find a home. We are very pleased with the guidance and professionalism we received from Denise.

Denise was outstanding in advising and assisting us in preparation for putting our home of 30 years on the market. She invited colleagues to tour the property and confer together on the best asking price. She consulted with us in creating a website to market our property, and she connected us with a professional stager, who made a significant difference in the overall presentation. Our home sold in three days at our asking price, and Denise helped moderate and negotiate questions from the buyer and their attorney. She was present for the walk-throughs, including the final day of our move, in order to say goodbye and wish us well. We could not have been more pleased and grateful for her professionalism and her friendship in helping us through this transition.

Top shelf professional. On time, responsive and a true partner from listing, through negotiation and final sale. Consistently goes above and beyond to provide sound advice and get the best deal for her clients. We strongly recommend Denise.

Denise is simply the best! I looked, prior to purchasing, for more than two years and Denise never rushed me or tried to push me into anything that wasn't right - her patience is unmatched. When we finally did find the right house, she made the process extremely smooth, was always available to answer questions or explain things to me, and was always extremely reassuring. When issues did arise, she went above and beyond to resolve them and we were blown away by her commitment and proactivity! We could not recommend Denise enough!

Denise is awesome - listens and understands what you are looking for and then shows you those types of homes. She spent a couple weekends showing up around. Would definitely recommend her.

Denise was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very knowledgeable and honest about the entire process, and went above and beyond our expectations. She will definitely be the only call I make when it's time to buy my next home.

Professional, expert, always available, transparent and kind. From our first meeting through transactions with multiple layers, Denise was terrific. Even after our buying and selling process we still turn to Denise for local advice. We loved working with Denise.

We have had a fifteen+ year relationship with Denise through three homes. First when she found us our starter home (then selling it), to buying and selling our 2nd home and now finding our forever home. In each instance, she has proved to be a true professional - providing great counsel and experience on our purchases while executing efficiently with great marketing/pricing on our sales. We could not recommend Denise more!
