About Me

I grew up in a Midwest farming community where I developed a strong work ethic and the deep belief that your word is your bond. A few years after getting married my husband and I visited Charlotte for a short vacation and we loved it so much we ended up staying for life.


I obtained both my North and South Carolina broker licenses in 2000 and spent a number of years in new home sales. The process of helping buyers go from raw land to the closing table gave me a unique knowledge that is a benefit to every client I work with. It enables me to identify and avoid potentially costly mistakes, whether you are building a new home or buying or selling an existing home.


Relocating with a job, moving to be near grandchildren, upgrading to accommodate a growing family, downsizing for retirement...whatever the reason for your move, it can be complicated and stressful. Over the past twenty years I have helped hundreds of people through the process. With extensive market knowledge, savvy negotiation skills, realistic expectations, and the desire to truly listen to what people say and work hard to help them achieve their goals, I can help you too. Having fun along the way and creating lifelong friendships is just an added bonus.


When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my husband, our two children, and our sweet dog Esky. I love cold weather, trips to the mountains, and a strong cup of coffee.

Denise was ready and excited for me from the start. She was clear on what I needed to do to prepare to buy and what the steps would look like as we moved forward. She always checked in and contacted me back for all of my weird questions in a timely fashion. I felt like Denise fought for my best interests the entire time and that made me feel very secure throughout the process.

‐ Laura, Charlotte

Denise was fantastic to work with during our home buying process. She has a great, friendly personality, she knows her stuff really well and always kept our best interests as her priority while searching for our home. She was also very patient with us as we toured quite a few homes trying to find the best all-around for us before finding the right one. I can’t recommend... Read More

In a nightmare sale situation, Denise kept us going, with her intelligence, her genuine goodwill, her presence of mind and her strong common sense. We were so fortunate she was our agent.

‐ Hamed & Aditi

As I was preparing to place my house on the market and purchase new construction, I was interested that Denise had vast experience in both. From our first meeting, I was very confident that I had found my realtor. Denise's expertise proved to be invaluable dealing with the many twists and turns, and frustrations of a new construction purchase. She was with me through every... Read More

Denise helped me buy my first home. It was a stressful and scary time, but Denise stayed completely professional and patient. I closed on the home of my dreams and that would not have been possible without Denise to walk me through every step.

‐ Sue

I want to thank you for your expertise in preparing me for this journey. As an absentee owner, having never lived in Charlotte, selling my property was a new experience. You walked me through the process of showing the property, of pricing the property and and negotiating the best deal possible. A seller's price has to be based in market realities not unrealistic...

As with any real estate market, Charlotte's moves up and down seasonally and is influenced by the overall economic outlook. The micro-markets may perform differently, so, individual zip codes, neighborhoods or even streets may buck the overall trend. Your trusted real estate advisor can help you figure out how your home fits into the marketplace.
