In 2020 we lost our mom and in 2021 we lost our dad. Needless to say our grief was overwhelming. Along with my sister and brother, we began the long and painful process of closing out our parents affairs including deciding what to do with their townhome. We initially attempted to sell it ourselves, thinking it would surely sell easily. As weeks passed with no luck we decided we needed help. Denel's response was immediate and positive. Before we knew it, we had a purchase agreement and a quick and smooth closing. Denel and her team helped us navigate through the process and took every worry off of our shoulders. We could not have gotten better service from a better team.
I could not be more happy with Denel. She sold my house when other agents couldn’t. The home had some features that made it a challenge. However, after Denel’s amazing staging and efforts the home was sold in no time. I highly recommend Denel!
Denel is not just “another realtor”, she becomes a friend that will guide you through the journey until you are safe and happy. We cannot thank her enough for not just helping us to find a house but making sure that we are finding a good house and giving us the gift of a lifelong friendship.
Denel is not only the world’s best Realtor but has also become a lifelong family friend. Denel helped us purchase our home in Rochester when we moved there 5.5 years ago and just recently helped us sell that same home. She is very efficient and professional. Once the multiple offers came in she helped us sort through them and made sure our best interests were at the forefront. When our moving company failed us, she helped us book new movers and even stopped over IN PERSON to make sure things were going smoothly. Denel will go above and beyond every single time. If you are in, or moving to, the Rochester area and need a Realtor, Denel is the answer!
We have both bought and sold homes with Denel's assistance. All of our experiences working with her were outstanding. Denel thoroughly understands the Rochester market and has years of experience with all aspects of the buying and selling process. She is an effective communicator and her cheerful and friendly personality makes her a pleasure to work with. In short if you need a realtor in Rochester - stop looking and call Denel!
I had the pleasure working with Denel on the sale of my parents home. She was very knowledgeable about the market, how to stage the home, great with discussing offers and easy to talk to. I never felt pressured in any way and was given all the info prior to making a decision. Selling can be a stressful and difficult time but I felt so at ease with Denel and her team.
Denel Ihde-Sparks was incredible to work with. She is highly skilled, professional and dedicated. She managed this sale when I was overseas on a work assignment. She staged my home beautifully and stayed in close communication with me through the process. I felt reassured and knew that she was representing my interests as the highest possible level. Ace Browning was also incredibly supportive and professional throughout the process. I can highly recommend this team!
Denel and her team are amazing to work with! They really know the Rochester market, give great feedback for first time home buyers on what to be looking for and will never pressure you to make a decision on a property. I highly recommend working with their team!
Nicole and the team were professional, personable and responsive. They were a delight to work with. They knew the area and also kept our preferences in mind throughout. We found a perfect house with their help and would work with them again.
With the task of selling our parents home of 50+ years we assumed it would be a laborious job. Denel assured us the home was in great shape and will sell in a snap at a good price. She gathered the nearby market sales statistics to help us determine a price. And just like that.. it was sold!
We were so pleased with Denel and her team. And even more pleased that they did all the work.
Kaitlin is not only a great realtor, but she is an amazing person! She helped us get into our new home and was so helpful throughout the entire process. She was always very quick to respond to texts and calls if we had questions. I can’t thank her enough!
Denel and Nicole did a fabulous job. They always put our needs first. We would highly recommend them to anyone who wishes to sell their home quickly and for a great price! Thank you for all that you do making the transition stress free!
Denel has sold two homes for us in the past 4 years. She is our go-to choice in realtors without question.
