Denise brings 40+ years of professional experience to the Team, more so she brings compassion and an unwavering work ethic, driven by her dedication to helping others.

  • We had the pleasure of working with the dynamic team of Denise Hayes and Rose Gibbs. From the moment we began working with these ladies, we felt a personal connection. Since we were not completely familiar with the area, we truly needed their expertise and familiarity of Southport and vicinity. They both worked tirelessly, late into the evening, and always were very responsive to our multiple emails, texts, and phone calls. Their teamwork was exceptional. They worked seamlessly together and kept the process moving flawlessly. These two ladies always made us feel comfortable, and it was obvious that they truly enjoy their work. We highly recommend Denise and Rose to everyone.

  • Rose & Denise have provided great service. From initial contact to continuous follow up. As a Realtor myself for 20 years in the MD-DC-VA areas, I am impressed with their service.

  • I have really enjoyed working with Rose on my house hunting adventure. She will definitely go above and beyond to help navigate this market on steroids. After a frustrating encounter with another realtor, I switched to Rose. She is professional, knowledgeable, and takes a lot of the stress out of home buying. I will be moving into my new house in a few weeks and Rose has helped me every step of the way. I give my highest recommendation to “Rosie the Realtor.”

  • Denise is a genuine, caring, compassionate, and kind person. She has a genuine interest in each individual she works with, and she wants to do the very best she can for you. She is extremely knowledgeable in the real estate. She is a problem solver…a great negotiator…and very creative. She will work with you and for you with guidance and assistance from the minute you meet her until the completion of the real estate transaction and beyond – she goes that extra mile. She is honest, loyal, and trustworthy. I highly recommend Denise Hayes for all of your real estate needs. She is a wonderful person, Realtor, and now a friend.

  • We connected with Rose almost immediately when we first met. She gave us all the information we needed and more on our 1st tour of St James. Now we are about to close a deal on a house at St James. Can’t wait to be Rose’s neighbor. She gets 10 stars from us.
