THE CRANFILLS!! My very first sale in 1999 and 20 years later they reached out again to sell their Palm Palace home in Emerald Shores with me. The most fun large family ever from Kentucky who became great long time friends. The most beach loving family you'd ever meet!  

They write: " Denise, Can't thank you enough for your help and support with the Palm Palace. We are all very very blessed to have had you as our Realtor for both the purchase and the sale of this awesome property. More importantly, we are grateful for the dear, dear friend you have become to us. We'll be back! Godspeed Windy & Bob.

Now that warms my heart - such a great testimonial and a great family I too am blessed to have met!
THE GROSSMANN's, a beautiful kind family from Alabama purchased their perfect beach condo at Waterscape with me. I found them a great location on the top floor with a dynamite view. Savvy rental property investors, they purchase a 2nd large Destin beach townhome for their portfolio. After several years of enjoying Waterscape, they fell in love with a new condo and I was able to get them in on the 1st opportunity preconstruction phase and they purchased a fantastic penthouse at the NEW Blu luxury condo.  We transitioned their Waterscape from a wonderful second home to a great rental property. 

They write: "Thank you for all you do for us, we so appreciate you." 

Many years of a mutually beneficial relationship with a great family and still going strong!  A success story!
THE WOOD family from Tennessee had not only been frequent vacationing guests at Waterscape, but also had several family members who had purchased in the resort as well. The family referred me and we stayed in touch with updates until we found the perfect condo.

The Woods write "We just adore you and we thank you helping us with our purchase- We love it here!" 

 The Woods did an absolutely remarkable job transforming a plain jane condo into a masterful rental beauty that not only they'll enjoy but their lucky guests too! A first class transaction all the way around. 
THE OBSTBAUM's from Florida!!  What can I say when customers you meet by happenstance riding their bikes stop in to talk real estate results in 3 purchases over the years (2 at Waterscape) and a superb friendship that takes you to far flung parts of the globe and fancy restaurants in the  Rockies. Real estate is more than buying and selling, its all about creating relationships based on trust, loyalty, knowledge and confidence in the process. I couldn't be happier with this business relationship that spilled over into a beautiful fun friendship! A success story!
THE BURKETT'S from Alabama!!  Another wonderful business relationship that became more than just getting a good deal on a condo! What started as looking for a beach getaway resulted in a purchase, a sale and another purchase - each transaction better than the previous. 

The Burkett's write: "I highly recommend Denise to handle your real estate needs, as either a buyer or a seller. Denise sold us our first Waterscape condo several years ago and has since helped us buy another unit and sold one for us too. She has been selling Waterscape since preconstruction and is the most knowledgeable agent of property values and trends anywhere around.  As a Waterscape owner herself, she has a vested interest in keeping property values up and promoting great things we have going on at Waterscape. Denise is wonderful at maintaining contact during the buying and selling process which meant a great deal to us. She is well known among real estate agents and has numerous contacts for locating buyers. Most of all, Denise is trustworthy and goes above and beyond for her clients." 

Through the many years of deals, the Burketts from Alabama have become great friends whom I've traveled thousands of miles and seen many awesome places with. Here we are in the Mediterranean checking out the caves on one of the beautiful islands of the Ionian Sea. It's more than real's real relationships and this is one I treasure for sure! A success story!
THE WISEMAN's from Washington State were frequent vacationers to the area for dozens of years. A referral to me from an old friend and a quick interview and we were off to find the perfect 2nd home to transition one day to a permanent residence.

The Wiseman's write: " In our search process you sent us "Best email ever!!! You've managed to put into one email all the things I've been googling and keying into excel without nearly as much detail as you have! 

When its market research you need, that's where I excel as your Realtor. I do my homework to make it a seamless and easy to understand process for my customers.  A 2020 success story. 
THE MIRE's from Louisiana.  After keeping in touch for several years with Waterscape market updates, I was able to help the Mire's realize their dream and trade up after their Al condo sale and a successful 1031 tax deferred exchange. Dreams do come true at Waterscape!

The Mire's write: "Denise was a pleasure to work with! She is very knowledgeable of her market area and all the little details you like to know before making a decision like this. I would highly recommend Denise for any of your real estate needs in the area. She also understands the people involved. It seemed that she was able to anticipate what we needed to know before we even asked."  

I always appreciate kind comments like these and I look forward to continuing to build and share my market knowledge in an an ongoing real estate relationship for years to come. A success story. 
THE TEPE's from Oklahoma!  When you know it, you know it. Thats the way it was when they saw this amazing view from the 20th floor of their Destin beach condo. It gave them chills from the sheer beauty of the sparkling emerald waters of the Gulf! Oklahoma may be OK, but the Tepe's are more than OK to me! They're such a delight to get together with and we enjoy visiting when they're in Destin! I was so happy to help them find their perfect place on the beach! A success story. 
THE HUNTERS are local Santa Rosa Beach/Destin friends from way back when I was a client of theirs as they were my personal fitness trainers in the 1990's. 20+ years and 3 kids later with a thriving fitness business, I was able to assist in their latest home purchase closer to their work and with enough space to accommodate  their beautiful family. Always a pleasure to help good friends with a smooth transaction.  2019 success story!
THE ELLIOTT'S from New Jersey. No stranger to real estate investing, the Elliotts partnered up with me to sell 112 units at Waterscape over 10 years. 

The Elliotts write "I highly recommned Denise. She knows the property inside and out. She's sold around 112 of our original units and has ALWAYS gotten the best price. A true joy to work with and if we ever decide to buy and sell more units, we would use her without a doubt! 

That is a beautiful treasured testimony that represents years of successful selling and buying! With a shared love of global travel and real estate, I value our relationship tremendously.  A success story. 
THE LANCASTER family from Georgia and Alabama contacted me for a purchase at Waterscape. We found their first 2br unit then a few years later, this savvy investor family did a smart 1031 tax deferred exchange and moved up with a 2nd purchase of a larger 3 bedroom mega producing rental. Since then, they have gone on to purchase 2 additional resort properties with me as their Realtor and real estate advisor. I love this loyal family, their kindness to one another and others makes them a joy to assist always!!  A success story!
THE SARINOGLU Family from Arkansas were so pleased with Waterscape and their first purchase they got a 2nd unit just above the first! They are among the dozens of happy satisfied owners with multiple units. I was very happy to assist this busy doctor in finding and closing a smooth transaction for the 2nd time at Waterscape. A success story!
THE CONNELL family from Alabama (center) are no strangers to Waterscape. This picture is from closing day 2019 of their 4th unit purchase in the resort as they build their vacation rental empire. Not only does Ms.Connell know how to pick them, she is a human dynamo at renting her units via her own rental site and now she helps other owners fill their gaps with her overflow. She's a committed loyal owner of this fine family resort and I was happy to assist her in her latest purchase.  A 2019 summer success story.
 THE GOADS: Everyone appreciates a stress-free transaction.  Sometimes things and situations are not perfect. It's important to stay organized and communicate all issues through to resolution. My seller appreciated my continuous communication when she wrote:   "Denise: Thank you for all your hard work. on getting my condo sold. I want you to know how much I appreciate all the work you put into this sale and keeping it low stress. It was really great and I wanted to say thanks! --Pam Goad, seller 419 Holiday Surf & Racquet Club, 590 Gulfshore Dr. Destin, FL 32541
