"It was great to have Denise by our side.   She helped us to improve our goals and achieve more than we had imagined (respecting our budget).  In everything we could (and could not) think about our plan, Denise gave us assistance proactively (selection of the best areas, flood zones, power stations, proximity to busy roads, inspections, utilities, surveys, documents, etc.).    She has a lot of experience, she knows everyone everywhere.   She is technically perfect and, this is really important to us, she shines captivating kindness.   Well, this is a brief record of our experience with Denise.   We strongly recommend her."....... Mauro, Cranford/ January 2019

"Denise helped us with a complicated sale of an older house that needed upgrades to bring it up to ready for listing and sale.  She is a stickler for details and then once we followed her on her advice, the house was listed and then quickly sold over our asking price.   She did a really great web listing and helped promote it to local realtors.  She was very involved and hands on.   She's very detailed oriented and we highly recommend her." ..... Ken, Morristown/ Dec 2018

"Denise is a consummate professional and trusted advisor when it comes to finding you your next dream home.   She is flexible and takes the time to understand your family's requirements and then will search and provide you listings that truly work for you.   She did an awesome job and found us our home after a lot of hard work!!   I would recommend her to anyone!"..... Ravi, Scotch Plains/ December 2018

"Denise Maran was my realtor for the sale of my home.   I was very pleased with her professionalism, attention to detail and knowledge in all the aspects of my real estate transaction.  Her warm & pleasant nature is also a big plus!  I would highly recommend her in any future real estate matters."...jplough, Westfield/December 2017

"Denise Maran is a very knowledgeable and patient realtor. She is very thorough with explaining the homebuying process and keeps everything organized. She is also very responsive to all forms of communication. Highly recommended."...... Mariza, Colonia/September 2017

"Denise is amazing! She is very detail-oriented and proactive -- as well as compassionate and understanding. She kept us informed every micro step of the way. She is easy-going and comfortable to work with. She has only our best interests in mind. In terms of the selling process, she told us what to expect and when to expect it. Her stager is extremely talented, creative, and resourceful. After a thorough and careful analysis of recent sales, Denise recommended an asking price that turned out to be spot on. We had one offer the first day and multiple offers over asking on the following two days. Denise was also diligent, resourceful, and proactive in helping us find a place to rent. Everything went smoothly and without a hitch. We highly recommend Denise Maran, she is a true master!"......Tom & Bonnie, Westfield/June 2017

"We had such a wonderful experience utilizing Denise for our real estate transaction!! Denise's easy going attitude, pleasant demeanor and professionalism, made working with her a pleasure. We found her to be extremely knowledgeable in all facets of the transaction, she knows the market very  well!! Denise was very prompt in getting us information as well as quickly getting back to us with any questions we may have had. We would highly recommend utilizing Denise.".....Linda & George, Cranford/ May 2017

"Denise helped us sell our home of 26 years. Although this was an emotionally difficult experience, Denise's expertise made the process seamless. She is a knowledgable client advocate who is not afraid to go the extra mile. She treated us like family, fighting for us every step of the way. We found  our dream home and for this we are so grateful. Denise Maran, an amazing realtor!!"....MaryAnne, Westfield/Mountainside/ 2017

"Denise Maran is a true professional and is always on top of every detail. She guided me at every step and did the research to help my purchase run smoothly. She is compassionate and truly cares about her clients. I am so grateful for all she did. I highly recommend her. She really looks out for her clients and wants the best for you"..... Carla, Shark River Hills/May 2017

"Denise is an excellent agent and we highly recommend her! We were so glad to have her assistance with our home purchase. Denise is smart, hard working, and simply a kind person who wants to help others. Denise was very responsive to all of our questions and gave us thoughtful advice. She also  took a lot of initiative in terms of planning our closing and other details. The sellers of the house we bought rented back to us after the closing; long after Denise received her commission, she continued to be a great help and resource for us. Denise is the cream of the crop!"....Ronit, Westfield/May 2017

"I had the pleasure of working with Denise on the property that we recently acquired.  It took us a while until we settled on something that we really liked.  Prior to finding this property, we went through a number of potential finds, for which Denise never pressured us on pulling a trigger.  She came out and showed us a number of properties (sometimes even on a very short notice) without hesitation.  I highly respect her due diligence especially when it comes to finding details on the property.  Once I was interested in a property, her follow up email would include (but not limited to) listing details, Flood map (which was very important to us), Comps in the area, and other necessary information about the property.  My previous experiences with "average" realtors started with a page of listing detail which pretty much ended there unless I requested more information, but lucky for us Denise was our agent.  To summarize it all, I would say that she goes above and beyond her responsibilities as a realtor and I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a great realtor." ...... Dakshesh, Colonia/April 2017

"We could not have been happier with Denise. After a brief phone conversation she immediately knew exactly what kind of house we were looking for. In fact we put in an offer on the very first house we saw. We did not get that house but she immediately started the search back up again and found us the house we ended up purchasing. She never tried to show us houses outside our budget and was very upfront about the quality of the houses we were looking at."......Justin & Alice, Cranford/April 2017

"Novice or not - buying a house is an immensely daunting and stressful process. Finding the right realtor is so crucial, and we were so lucky to have Denise Maran in our corner through it all. Denise's approach made our relationship less transactional and more personal. She was with us 100% of the way, from beginning to closing and continuing to reach out after we moved in. Juggling multiple clients and projects, we never saw Denise's work lapse. She worked tirelessly with us, and treated us with priority. Always available through numerous communication channels, her lightning quick responses helped us move forward as fast as we could. Denise's patience and perseverance helped us maintain sanity through this roller coaster of a process. Never once did she push a listing just to close the sale. She goes above and beyond to make sure all the pieces fit right. Her honest, candid opinions and invaluable counsel steered us in the right direction many times, helping us navigate the home buying process at every turn. If you are looking for a realtor, a friend, and a true partner - Denise is the best!"........ Casey & Eugene, Cranford / December 2016


"Denise was great to work with. She is very knowledgable about the area and market. Super accommodating and easy to work with. We would recommend her to anyone."..... Matt & Nicole, Cranford / July 2016.

"I highly recommend Denise to anyone looking to sell their home. With her personal knowledge of the market in Cranford, we got multiple offers on our home within the first few days it was on the market. She will do a walk through of your house and give you honest feedback about what needs to be done to the house prior to putting it on the market. Her attention to detail in this regard is impeccable. In our case, we were selling our home to relocate across the country. Denise has experience with the corporate relocation process and all of the extra paper work that goes along with it. She coordinated everything between the relocation agent, the relocation company's attorney and the buyer's agent. You will be in good hands with Denise whether your are doing a traditional sale or a relocation!" ...... Clint/Chloe, Cranford / August 2016

"Listing my home with Denise was a fabulous experience.  She recommended some improvements that I could make before the listing and open house. She marketed my home online using several sites. After the contract was signed, Denise guided me through the process right up to the closing. She answered all of my emails and texts immediately and was always patient with my questions. I would recommend her to anyone who is planning to list their home."......Lynn, Westfield /June 2016

"Extremely patient and responsive. I'm a relocation customer which means I have very tight timeline. Denise responds to all my calls right away. She had prepared contract for me Saturday evening, very late but she professionally prepared all documents and sent them out. Very nice realtor. Recommend  to everyone."...... Shuwen, Clark / April 2016

"We have worked with Denise many times purchasing properties and have consistently been extremely pleased. She is very professional, kind and caring. It is just a pleasure working with her. She is so very thorough and leaves no stone unturned. During the process she will keep you well informed and will help you keep track of whatever needs to be done on the part of the seller/purchaser. She is easily accessible to answer any and all questions you may have. Her customer service and attention to detail are impressive."   .......Kathy & Rich,Westfield / 2016

"Denise is a very professional and knowledgeable realtor and person. I was recommended to her from a very close friend and she was everything I was told and more. My home search lasted for close to 7 months, mainly due to my relatively low purchase budget. Denise was very understanding and found a way to make things work for me. My case was a bit of a nuance on the number of contracts, offers, but at the end of the day, I found the home I liked and wanted the most - and at a very good price! She was instrumental in everything, from beginning to end - a very detailed and proactive worker. I would truly highly recommend her as a realtor especially for first time home buyers (like myself). She will go above and beyond for her clients and has wonderful soft skills that makes the buying experience that much easier and enjoyable." .........
Gianfranco, Roselle Park / January 2016

"Denise was very patient with the long search that my home purchase turned into.  She was very knowlegeable  of the area as well as the nuances of the market.  While she was out of the country on vacation she was working on my purchase by phone and email.  She is dedicated to the client and was an excellent choice." ....... Tom, Kenilworth/ August 2015

"Denise was the first person we met when we walked into the Berkshire Hathaway office. We had only a few days left during our visit from the west coast to find a home and she literally dropped everything to help us. In just three short days, we came to know each other very well and we quickly felt  that she truly had our best interest at heart. Denise aims to please her clients, and to find not just a house, but a home. We are grateful for her guidance and support during the entire home buying process." .....Kate, Mountainside / Dec 2014

"It was a pleasure working with you.   Thank you for all of the things you did that were over and above what a typical agent probably would do to facilitate the sale of a property.  I cannot imagine how I would have made it to this point without your extra efforts."   " I am very happy with the outcome.   I can without reservation recommend Ms. Maran for those looking to buy or sell a residential property in the Westfield real estate market".......Stan P, Westfield / August 2014

"Denise was wonderful!  Since she lived in the area we were looking, she was very knowledgeable about the town and the different neighborhoods. She was willing to show us homes on the weekends which was very helpful with our schedules.  Not only was she patient and able to help us with all of our questions, she also gave us great recommendations for inspectors and other contacts that were needed for the home buying process.  We loved working with Denise and will certainly call her again if we ever need a realtor!" .....   Carmen & Mark, Cranford / October 2014

"Denise Maran came to our rescue when we had trouble with another realtor providing the work and assistance needed in purchasing our new home.  Ms. Maran dropped everything to meet with me on a Sunday morning and worked with us throughout the process of obtaining our first home.  She was diligent, very responsive to emails and phone calls, assisted with questions/concerns that we had with our local municipality, and even pushed on our behalf to ensure that the home we purchased was up to our standards even at the closing table!  I am deeply thankful to have worked with Ms. Maran. She stepped in and did a phenomenal job.  We will not hesitate to reach out to her again when the time comes for our next purchase." ....   Althea, Roselle Park / October 2013
