Denise is an Interior Designer and has a unique set of skills to assist both buyers and sellers. She enjoys history and in her spare time loves gardening, hiking, and antique shopping. Having lived in several small towns, and a current resident of Baldwin City, Denise loves the sense of pride and community that can be found in a small town. 

If you check Denise’s listings page and don’t see anything, it’s because houses are selling fast. There will be more coming soon.

About Denise


I am eager to meet you and help you along your real estate journey.  

I began my career by earning a degree in Interior Design and worked in the housing industry for several years, specializing in kitchen and bath design. I utilized those skills to assist builders and homeowners alike. After some life changes and the recession, I had an 8-year stint as the Bioengineering Program Coordinator at The University of Kansas. The project management and customer service skills cultivated during that time are invaluable now that I have returned to my love of houses and chosen a career as a Realtor.

I grew up in Kansas City, but I have lived in rural communities most of my life, including Edgerton, Ottawa, and now Baldwin City. My family even owned and managed a small farm for a while. 

My life outside of work is centered around my family. As a mother of three, much of my time is spent cheering them on in life and on the field. I’ve been a foster parent, an education advocate, served on an elementary site council and an after-school program advisory board, and helped lead a boy scout troop. 

Service to my customers has been the focus of my entire career. My goal is to listen to your needs and focus my efforts on meeting them with integrity, honesty, and fortitude. 

In 2022, the Lawrence Board of Realtors recognized me as a Rising Star. That same year, I earned my designation as an American Warrior Real Estate Professional.

I look forward to working with you!

We recently purchased some land to build on. The process was crazy and filled with many learning adventures as we found our way around Douglas and Jefferson County looking for the perfect piece of land for us. Denise stuck with us through all the challenges and over the long haul to ensure that we ended up with the property that fit us best. Many thanks to Denise for all her hard work and efforts.

Denise made our first-time seller process so easy! She is very personable and communicates very well every step of the way. She is very knowledgeable about the areas she serves and helped us find the perfect listing price for our home. If we didn’t move to a different state after selling our home, we would use Denise again for any realty needs!
