Denise Wolfe brings to Urban Nest extensive experience in sales and management. She finds all aspects of real estate fascinating, from the architecture and landscaping, to neighborhood layouts, to how each sale brings new experience and knowledge - but is mostly drawn to how it enables her to forge solid connections with people. She loves Portland for the same reasons she loves real estate - every person here is unique, and we celebrate it! Her strong work ethic, ability to read between the lines, attentiveness to her clients' needs, and capacity to thrive under pressure ensures that she can deliver, every time.
A perfect Portland Saturday for Denise would be a muddy walk in Forest Park with her husband and Border Collie mix, Loki, followed by a stroll through one of our many Farmers Markets - fresh produce brings her great joy! If she has the chance she'll be in her kitchen all day, cooking up something warm and spicy...or she might head down to Radar on Mississippi and treat herself to some tasty small plates and cocktails. She's a natural hostess, and lives for the opportunity to feed her friends (and drink beautiful wines with them, as well). Denise has always dreamed of opening her own restaurant, and someday, still might!
Her superpower: Turning yesterday's leftovers into yet another delicious meal.
Superpower she wishes she had: Teleportation - take her to Spain!
Her favorite moment/s in real estate: Her first listing had a beautiful garden on a double lot that her client spent many years cultivating. She decided that a garden map explaining each specific plant would be the best way to showcase the property, and that's exactly what drew the new owner to the home. Denise believes that there's a great deal of fate involved in real estate - every deal is unique, everything always appears to happen for a reason, and everything always seems to work out exactly as it should.
Favorite Portland neighborhood, and why? Denise had previously lived in Sellwood for seven years, so she will always have a place in her heart for that lovely little neighborhood – there’s an old charm and quaintness to it that is truly unique. She bought a fixer in the Sabin neighborhood in 2014 and loves it! When she's not working on her house, she is enjoying the proximity to the Alberta Arts district, and exploring all the hidden stairways in the Alameda neighborhood.
