Denise was an amazing real estate agent. We lucked out when we found her at an open house in a neighborhood where we were renting. At the time we met her, we were working with our bank to secure a preapproval. Because Denise was proactive, responsive, continually provided us valuable information about the ever changing market and she had kids our same age; we decided to call her as soon as we received our preapproval. I never regretted it!! We quickly found and made an offer on a home that I was shocked she found for us (i.e. our price range and extremely specific area). The drama that unfolded next was completely unforeseen by us; including issues with our bank and VA loan -- which promoted the sellers to want to back out of the deal, etc.... The hurdles and roadblocks never stopped. All the while, I had Denise in my corner; rooting us on! Telling us not to worry and keeping the deal going. Occasionally, I would just call her to cry and get a peptalk. She was always there for me and my neurosis! I honestly feel as though she single-handedly secured this house for us by making sure the sellers didn't pull out of what became a difficult transaction. She never wavered or thought we wouldn't get it. And we did get our home!!!! I was so skeptical, but Denise never had a doubt. We truly lucked out having her as our agent!!

Home Sale & Purchase
It is our pleasure to recommend Denise Perkins as your real estate agent. Last year she was our agent for the sale of our home of over 25 years and the purchase of our present home. We made a series of crucial decisions in the process and the most important one was the choice of Denise as our realtor.
Our house was put up for sale in the most difficult market in decades. Before listing, Denise researched our area thoroughly. With Denise's expertise and advice we staged and marketed our house for optimum value and price. As a result of Denise's diligence, creativity, and knowledge we received a great offer on our home within days of listing. She was there for us during the negotiation process and helped us get the deal closed within thirty days.
At all times, we knew we had the best! A generous, compassionate, proactive, honest, and knowledgeable realtor. After the transactions closed we knew that we could not have done this without her.
Very truly yours,
Gary and Cynthia Levell

My experience working with Denise was extremely positive . While I thought I had done a lot of the upfront work online in narrowing my search, her expertise at ferreting out details saved time and money and ultimately resulted in a purchase that I'm completely happy with.
At the beginning of the process she was able to delve into my short list to prioritze the features I was looking for. She was flexible in working around my work schedule and organized our viewings to make the best use of available time.
While I don't envision moving again in the next few years, I'd look forward to an opportunity to work with Denise again.

Denise is an incredibly responsive, accommodating and patient realtor. She always made herself available to us on short notice and was very generous with her time. During a period of low-inventory and high-demand, she was able to find us a home that met all of our "must-haves".
We were particularly impressed with Denise's first-hand knowledge of Seattle neighborhoods given that our buying criteria had as much to do with specific characteristics of the neighborhood as with the features of a home. And based on our stated criteria, she was able to introduce us to some new neighborhoods of which we had previously been unaware.
What we most appreciated about Denise is that she is not a high-pressure realtor.
She armed us with the information we needed to make informed decisions about the inventory we were viewing, and gave us good insight into what would give us the edge in such a competitive market.
To top it off, Denise has a fun, relaxed manner, which made house hunting enjoyable. It is a bonus that she is surrounded by a terrific team of realtors who work in a collegial manner. We could not be happier with the outcome!
