Denise is a consummate real estate professional, and we recommend her whole-heartedly. She knows the business backwards and forwards, and she brings that experience and expertise to every conversation. She has a strong command of every aspect of the real estate transaction, from mortgages to negotiations to disclosures. In addition to her technical expertise, Denise understands the emotions that come into play with the sale of one's home. Denise made us feel like we were respected and valued every step of the way. When we got a little weepy thinking about selling our home of 21 years, where we raised our children, Denise slowed down to encourage us to process those feelings. She never let her eye leave the ball, but she understood the human dimension of real estate that ultimately let us feel so positive about the sale. Hopefully we are not moving again, but if we were, we would hire Denise in a heartbeat.
With today's high housing prices, I sometimes think Realtors are over-compensated under the traditional commission structure. This is not one of those times! You earned every penny. Thank you for your efficiency, compassion, and patience in navigating a challenging landscape of conflicting goals and emotional needs. I am very grateful for your assistance—and especially so far—for keeping me in the loop. I felt informed, which is exactly how I wanted it.
Denise Warner has been my Realtor on two different transactions – one in Arlington three years ago and one in DC in 2020. Both experiences went so much better than expected, and it was all due to the steady, organized and thoughtful approach Denise brings. Nothing fell through the cracks. Nothing! She answered every question of mine with kindness and patience. When I had qualms about whether I was doing the right thing, she met me where I was and let me work through it. She did not try to talk me out of or into anything. When I needed a trusted advisor on real estate, Denise was right there, giving great direction. She is completely stuck with me as a client for life!
Denise worked as if she was selling her own home. She actively promoted the property through promotional materials (print and digital), open houses and advertising. Denise constantly communicated throughout the sales process and provided realistic advice.
Denise, thank you so much for your amazing experience and commitment that brought us to a new home we love and selling our old home for more than we thought we would! You were always available and fought tooth and nail for us … you made us feel like we were your only clients, and that’s a tough experience to find these days!
Denise, I want to thank you for a great job on the sale of our house. Your personal effort and professionalism are sincerely appreciated. It was this effort that sold this house in essentially a month …. Please feel free to contact me if you ever need a reference.
Denise, I will never be able to thank you enough – you have been unbelievably tolerant and kind beyond words. You are a rare bird in today’s world – please know that I do not for one minute take that for granted! With enormous gratitude.
