This is my second, and technically third, review for Denise Lucchesi! Subsequent to buying a property through a 1033 Exchange, we needed to sell some land and purchase another property through a 1031/1033 combination. We had already identified the buyer for the land, but knew that a professional needed to be involved to manage the details. Of course we called Denise as she had handled our previous purchase perfectly.

The timing for the sale of the land had to coordinate with the purchase of another property through very strict guidelines. Denise was able to work with our buyer (through dual agency) to address the timing and details of the sale while she helped us shop for a replacement property. Of course, true to form, my husband and I found the replacement property on the first day. LOL! Made an offer, were accepted, did some inspections, then revised the offer...all with Denise's expert guidance. We closed on the land sale and 5 days later closed on the new house...perfect timing and all within the guidelines we needed to follow.

We will be working with Denise again. She's the best! (Still don't think she ever sleeps.)

Denise was a pleasure to work with! She was professional but warm, answered all of our questions as first-time home buyers thoroughly and kindly, and introduced us to a number of folks in her extensive network for things like inspections, repairs, etc. We're so grateful to have worked with her to purchase our home and would (and do!) recommend her to anyone.

Denise Lucchesi is like a real estate counselor. She guided me to find the home that was perfect for me. Also, she steered me away from settling on the wrong place. Denise is also like a real estate educator. She taught me about how to select, negotiate, and finance a home. She is the real deal too. She is not pretentious or superficial. Instead, she is a good and kind person who answers to a genuine calling of helping people find their dream homes. I only had $350,000 to buy a home and she supported my buyer's journey from beginning to end, as if I was buying a 2-million-dollar home. She was great to have on my side during negotiations, and she fought for my interests and paid close attention to detail on all documents. I see why she is voted the best realtor in Petaluma year after year.

After working with Denise for more that a year, we can truly say that it was worth the wait! From the start, Denise provided a calm and reassuring demeanor which allowed us to approach buying our first home without feeling pressured. As first-time homebuyers, the experience was overwhelming, and we would not have been able to navigate the myriad of decisions without Denise. She was with us every step of the way and provided expertise both in understanding the market as well as negotiating with the seller's agent and eventually helping us craft a strong offer. Denise was patient, understanding and nurturing throughout the process making everything eventually work out. We highly recommend Denise for her professionalism and ability to work with challenging situations all in an effort to get homebuyers to the finish line. Thank you, Denise for helping us move into our dream home!

Denise is an amazing realtor and I have recommended her to friends and family. She is professional and her experience really shows in her demeanor. I would use her again if the need arises. She made our sale process easy and stress free. I really appreciated her calming affect.

Denise Lucchesi was a professional in selling my house.  She was extremely knowledgeable about the local factors in determining an asking price, which was met and exceeded with final sale price. She seemed to understand the demographics the buyers for my particular property, and we got a large amount of people during the open houses.   She was personable and clear in her communication, and followed through on her promises.

I selected three brokers based on Yelp reviews.  I interviewed them all at the house I wanted to sell and asked the same questions.  I had the best rapport and confidence with Denise.  Every question I asked she answered that sounded truthful and reasonable.  She priced the property far higher than the others and it sold for more than that.

You won't find a more professional, personable, responsive, effective realtor than Denise Lucchesi. When working with a professional, a hallmark is their ability to answer the questions you won't KNOW to ask! Denise not only sold our home in Petaluma for the best possible price to the best possible buyer, she also helped us negotiate the purchase of new our home out of state by providing tips and information we never would have known to ask about. And at a time of inordinate stress, Denise is calm, cool and collected every step of the way!!

Hello Everyone, My family and I have been living in Petaluma for decades and were lucky enough to have Denise Lucceshi administer 3 real estate transactions for us in the last 6 years: Two sales and one purchase. The last one was 2 days ago.  Every transaction was smooth and met or exceeded our expectations

Her communication skills were excellent, interpersonal skills on the spot, trustworthy beyond question, had solutions to problems and provided the highest level of integrity and advice during each step of the process. Her exemplary social skills and kindness really helped with the stress especially with our 83 year old family member.
We value her representation and have recommended her many times to family, friends and associates.  We will gladly call Denise again for our next real estate transaction.  
Thanks Denise!!

Denise was very professional. She did a superb job in guiding me through the process of selling the home; from staging, to clean up, to paper work. She commands a responsive and attentive group of professionals who did great work in tight timeframes; from painters, to stagers, yard maintenance and clean up. she was very attentive to details and communicated well with the key players in the transaction. she completed tasks timely and the transaction closed smoothly.  i would gladly work with Denise in future transactions.

We just sold our rental property with Denise! What a stress free experience this was...She is extremely professional, quick to respond to all of our questions, and in short time found us a buyer, even during the pandemic! We would not hesitate to recommend her, or use her services again in the future. Thank you Denise for all your work!

Denise was such an amazing find! All the yelp reviews were correct. She's an expert of the area and really understands the process to get you in a home. Her extended network of partners (finance, inspections, etc.) are also great. We recently relocated from Chicago to the East Bay, but were looking for more space somewhere in Sonoma County. We purchased our dream home and Denise made the process so smooth. Thank you again Denise!

Our family (including my father before me) had considered listing our home several times over several years prior to this listing.  Each time Denise made herself available and was helpful in providing information to help us decide whether or not it was the right time to sell the home.  This meant that she spent many hours with us doing work that never resulted in compensation for her.  As such, when the time came to list the home for sale, Denise was the natural person to help us; because she was already our trusted real estate adviser.

Denise's estimate of the home's value was dead on accurate.  She sold the home for the value we wanted in 7 days, during a power outage and a wild fire.  She delivered way beyond expectation.

Denise is a perfect example of a professional.  She was never intrusive or pushy; but she was always immediately available when we needed her.  Her directions and advice were clear and easy to follow and she was reliable, calm, and accessible whenever a difficulty arose.

Denise is literally the best agent in Sonoma County--LITERALLY! (Don't believe me? Look up the numbers. After a few bad experiences with other agents, that's what I decided to do...and that's how I found Denise). No one closes more deals in Sonoma County than Denise, and after working with her, I now know why!

This was our first home purchase and Denise worked tirelessly, seemingly night and day, to orchestrate what seemed like an impossible close... in just 30 days (during the coronavirus crisis nonetheless!)!

Denise is clearly well respected in the community and she has some serious clout among North Bay real estate professionals. When Denise requests something, people listen--other agents, lenders, contractors, inspectors--they all know who Denise Lucchesi is, and they all know she doesn't mess around! Although she's incredibly kind, caring and considerate, Denise clearly knows how to get things done, and she does so with a smile, and in a manner that makes others want to work with her. She's incredibly gifted at choosing the right words, and handling delicate situations (and people), flawlessly.

If you want to ensure you're taken seriously in your next real estate transaction, whether you're buying or selling, you'd be wise (and lucky) to have Denise on your side! I cannot make a stronger recommendation, and I am not an easy customer to satisfy (just ask the other agents who came before).

What an honor it was to work with such a talented individual. Truly a master at her craft!

Thanks Denise!

I was very naive about this process when I first decided to buy in Petaluma.  A friend recommended Denise Lucchesi and I'm so glad he did!  Denise knows Sonoma County and Petaluma very well.  She had a lot of valuable insight into the area and condo complex I was buying into.  She's helpful, friendly and relaxed about what can be an anxious process, especially since I don't live in the area.  She was available whenever I needed, she handled inspections, repair requests, etc. quickly and efficiently, and negotiated a great price without drama or delay.  Even with the sale final, Denise is still answering questions and helping me along.
I'm thrilled with the end result and I would recommend Denise without the slightest reservation - this is definitely a process that is helped by having a competent professional.  Lucky me to have stumbled upon the best realtor in Petaluma.  :)

We recently had the pleasure of working with Denise on the purchase of our first home in Petaluma. As one can imagine, this can be a somewhat intimidating and stressful process with a lot of unknowns for first time home buyers. Denise was AMAZING and eliminated all those fears.  It couldn't have been a smoother process! She took the time to understand our situation, listened to our needs and what we were ideally looking for and absolutely delivered. If you're looking for a realtor who is professional, trustworthy, respected in the industry, and always has your best interest in mind look no further than Denise! Thank you so much for all your help and for helping us find our home to raise our family in!

Denise is the BEST! She went over and above for me. There were a lot of things I just didn't understand about the process and if it weren't for Denise, who knows what could have happened. She made selling my house understandable and I was able to get it done quickly and successfully. Don't even bother looking for someone else!I'm thrilled with the end result and I would recommend Denise without the slightest reservation - this is definitely a process that is helped by having a competent professional.  Lucky me to have stumbled upon the best realtor in Petaluma.  :)

In our forty years as real estate investors, we were thrilled with our first transaction with Denise.  Denise is energetic, responsive, and readily supplies suggestions and contacts to make the sale more efficient.  She kept track of all the players and the timeframes, and acted immediately, as needed, to keep things moving.  She was low key, but creative.  We enjoy working with Denise and going forward, she's our realtor!

I worked with Denise Lucchesi to search for my first home. I have known Denise for a long time. We had looked for properties back in 2012-2013 but unfortunately nothing worked out at the time. I recently decided I was ready to pull the trigger in buying my home, and Denise picked up right where we left off. Denise is highly experienced in Sonoma county real estate. She was excellent about advising me how the process of home buying works, every step of the way. She was thorough, professional, prompt, and paid attention to detail. Denise always made herself available to answer questions and quiet my anxiety about the process, even in weird off hours. She definitely made this process as painless as possible on my end, and it's very evident she takes pride in her work. I am extremely thankful for her help in closing on my first home, and will absolutely work with her in the future for further real estate needs.

Denise was our realtor in 2012. She helped us find our house in Petaluma. We were moving from the east coast and had limited time to look. She knew that and made herself available to us for 10 days. After living there for 5 years she then helped us sell our home for our next move. Denise is very knowledgeable and thorough and we couldn't have asked for a better realtor.
