    As a licensed REALTOR for two decades and a Floridian since 1979, one might guess that a love for real estate and the First Coast are a huge part of who I am, and that couldn't be more accurate. My husband, Bill, myself, and our two dogs, Bella and Journey, take full advantage of all that Jacksonville has to offer its residents both personally and professionally. I'm proud to live, play and work in Clay County,
    but I happily serve clients throughout the First Coast.

    My Client Testimonials

    Dena has so many years of experience and education in sales, marketing, & business. She is knowledgeable, professional, honest, reliable, and always willing to go above and beyond. We were relocating from our home in NY to FL. When we spoke with Dena, she was genuinely interested to know more about us so she could find the right neighborhood for us to look at. We did not want to move into a residential area but more of a community. She knew exactly what we were talking about. Dena took the initiative to help us find a home and prepare us to understand what our wants and needs were and most importantly, the difference. Dena showed us 3 communities that she thought would be a good fit for us and she was right on all of them! We purchased a new home, and Dena was there with us to offer suggestions at the home furnishing store which we greatly appreciated her valuable input. She made this stressful transition so much easier because of her care, knowledge, and friendly disposition. - Denise Mannoia
    When my daughter wanted to sell her house, I went to Dena for consultation. My daughter could sell her house for cash or have Dena list it in the housing market. Dena did a full housing assessment and advised my daughter to "take the money and run!" Dena gave up earning a commission to do what was best for my daughter and her family. Dena is a true professional with total integrity and truthfulness. I recommend her for any housing need, buy, sell and even rentals! When I decide to sell my house, Dena is going to make it happen! - Pamela Burr
    Dena is as professional as they come. I always enjoy working with her on a transaction. Unlike so many in this business, her goal is not how quickly can she get to the closing table, but instead, what is needed to make the transaction as smooth as possible for the customer. Part of that is how to correctly perform any needed repairs and provide as much information as possible. So glad to know Dena and hope to work many more transactions with her in the future. - Beth Wilson Clark
    My husband and I met Dena many years ago when we were looking for a home in the Jacksonville area. Since then, we have bought a home, sold a home, and become friends with Dena. Dena's attention to detail, professionalism and genuine concern for her clients separate her from others. Over the years we have moved more times than I care to count, and she remains our favorite real estate professional of all time! - April Martinez Brooks
    Dena was absolutely wonderful when my brothers & I needed to sell our parents' home. She used her extensive knowledge & experience to guide us & went above & beyond throughout the whole process & made sure we got the best deal.
