DENISE'S PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE began while attending Virginia Tech when she innocently accepted a job as a Sales Assistant for a new home builder with the intent of returning to finish her degree. After only a few months of learning home sales, site plans and blueprints, she was hooked! In just over a year her superior ability, ambition and tenacity earned her a well-deserved promotion to Sales Manager. Quickly establishing herself as a stand-out salesperson, Denise received the honor and responsibility of managing multiple communities across Howard and Anne Arundel counties. During her fifteen-year career with Trinity Homes, Denise was personally involved in over 350 successful settlements selling an average of $12 million per year.
Denise uses her mastery of the new homes' marketing process to enhance her current career in residential real estate. In marketing your home for sale, she uses her skills in research, marketing, staging and negotiation. These skills have allowed her to excel as a Listing Agent. Her focus has always been to get the most for your property while saving you time, money and energy.
She has an extensive knowledge of the communities in Howard county and the surrounding counties and would be an excellent partner in your home search.
Denise is an Accredited Staging Professional, ASP, and is currently working on her Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) and her Associate Broker's license.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE... In 1985, Denise relocated with her family to Maryland from Cape Cod, Massachusetts. After graduating from Bowie Senior High in 1989, she moved to Howard County in 1993 where she still resides. While successfully honing her skills as a New Home Sales Manager, Denise earned her degree in Business Finance with a minor in Marketing at University of Maryland University College. Denise recalls “Juggling work and school taught me time management skills from a young age and they have come in handy ever since.” On December 31, 1999, Denise married her true love, Robert Garner. Yes, it's true…they had a Y2K wedding! It was a spectacular event born out of Denise and Robert's optimistic belief that the future was bright. Since then, Denise and Robert have been blessed with four children and spend most of their personal time with them. In her spare time, when that exists, Denise loves to travel, lift weights, practice yoga and scrapbook. Jamaica and Walt Disney World are among her top destinations.

"Denise provided professional expertise but with a warm and friendly approach to selling our home. I must say we were somewhat concerned that our sales price may have been too high for the neighborhood. Denise did her homework and we had a contract for the full amount within 2 days of going on the market. She also gave us great advice on how to de-clutter and stage our home to make it more appealing. What else can I say except that Denise didn't just hit a home run, she hit a grand slam. Thank you so much. "

"Denise has helped us with three sales/purchases. I describe the experience with her as the difference between eating soda bread (other realtors) and enjoying a vacation in an Italian pastry shop (her). She is sharp and responsive. Most of all she asks probing questions and has the courage to tell us what we need to hear, not what we want to hear. She is always always in our corner. I will not willingly go to any other realtor."
-Cliff Britton, Client
"Denise isn't just someone that gets the job done, she goes above and beyond what is required. She saw the things that we needed to do in order to get the most return for our home. She has many years of excellent experience which give her the edge in her profession. We were so impressed with her professionalism, sincerity, and integrity. We trusted her 100% and we are so thankful that we did. We highly recommend her for both selling and buying a home. "
-Lisa and Bob Morrow , Client
"We moved to California in May this year and had to sell our house in Maryland. We followed a few suggestions from Denise to get the house ready for the market. After completion of those improvements Rob and Denise worked diligently with different buyers and offers, and got the house sold within 2 weeks. They continued to give us updates about the selling progress until the closing. The communication was excellent throughout the entire process despite that we were in different states. We would highly recommend Rob and Denise to our family and friends for any Real Estate needs in the future."
-Kam and Karla AuYeung, Client
"I was simply delighted with Denise's service throughout the home sale process. Being out of the country most of the time, I could never have managed what needed to be done without her expert guidance and assistance. Denise is by far the best Realtor I have worked with in the past 20 years."
-Sally Hobbs, Client
"We have known Denise since she sold us our first house in 1999! We were lucky enough to have her and Rob assist us with our new home build and sale of that first home several years ago. They are knowledgeable, professional and get the job done."
