Denise has sold 2 homes for me and does an awesome job.  Got one more for her to sell in Linville Falls.  If you ever need someone that is honest and caring and will get you the best prices then Denise is the one!!  Thank you again Denise, Katie Purgason

"Denise was so phenomenal!"  We were buying a place out of state which made us very nervous but I have to say Denise made it seem like we were next door to her throughtout the whole process!  Very knowledgeable and on top of anything that we requested no matter how small.  When we buy again we will hands down use Denise!"

Denise helped us all the way through the process from getting our home ready to list to closing.  She was patient and helpful explaining the process to us and we trusted her completely.

"I gave her 5 stars for all categories and wrote the following:  My wife and I reside in Raleigh and were looking for a home within a 20 minutes commute of App State.  We reached out to Denise to be our buyer's agent and she did a phenomenal job throughout the entire process.  She contacted us frequently regardiing new homes to the market within our price rance and she reponds wirtually within minutes when we send her emails and texts with questions, no matter how minor they may be.  She knows a tremendous amount about the area and the overall process behind buying a home.  Because we were remote (living in Raleigh) and could not be in the area every day, Denise went above and beyond for us.  She helped us find several professionals in the area and obtained quotes for us.  Additionally, she was at our prospective home representing us for the general inspection, as well as general contractor evaluation and insect inspection.  She completed the deal by ensuring that all of our needs for the home were completely met.  I would recommend Denise 100% and fully intend to utilize her skills should I need to buy or sell a home in the future.

"My husband and I bought and sold a number of homes over the years....and I must say, Denise Weinkle was one of the BEST Realtors we've ever worked with.  Dense is not only knowledgeable in helping you buy/sell a house, she was also extremely helpful.  We are out of town owners and she connected us with local contacts to fix and/or update which allowed our house to be market ready.  We had a complicated sale and Denise was incredibly responsive and made use feel like she was always on our side.  I can promise you, you won't be disappointed with Denise, she is a standout!"

"Would highly recommend Denise!  She worked with us for a long time to find the right home.  She was extremely knowledgeable in all areas.  She was also extremely quick to respond to emails and questions.  Overall Denise was wonderful to work with!"

"I would highly recommend Denise!  She is extremely knowledgeable with real estate in the local and offered many helpful suggestions during the buying process.  Denise is very professional, punctual with our appointments and represented us very well.  If you want quality results, call Denise."

My husband and I are very grateful to Denise for everything she did to help us make our new home in the mountains a reality.  She was a great help through every step of the process.  From taking us around to seeing houses all over Watauga County, through the negotiations, numerous inspections and all the way to closing.  Denise went above and beyond our expectations.  We couldn't have made it through this without her excellent guidance and expertise both in real estate as well as her knowledge of this unique area!  We would highly recommend Denise to our family and friends!!

"Denise was very good to work with.  As we are from out of town, Denise worked on Memorial Day weekend and several other weekends.  She showed us numerous homes and found us the perfect vacation home.  She was very diligent working with the other Realtor and owner getting us a good price on our new home.  I would high recommend Denise if you are looking for a Realtor who is on your side."

"Denise was amazing!!!  I had three weeks to find a home and move to the area.  She meet my husband and I on a holiday weekend and took us all over Boone and the surrounding areas.  She did everything she could so that we could close early, she was always available and easy to contact.  Our baby even adored her.  We cannot say enough nice things about this woman.  She is amazing!!

I wanted to write a review of my experience while we sold our house in Jefferson, NC.  My husband Frank and I were very impressed with our REALTOR, Denise Weinkle.  It took only a few months to find a buyer and this was not our first attempt to sell the house.  We had the house on the market a coule of years ago for an extended length of time before we gave up.  We think that Denise's knowledge and client base made the difference.  She was organized, always kept us informed and had an understanding of what houses like ours were selling for.  Our house was shown much more often than it had been shown when we had it on the market before.  Denise kept us informed about the feedback that she got from the buyers and so we knew what the problem areas were and addressed them.  I'm so thankful for Denise for making this sale go so smoothly.

Hayes, Jan 2018 


"With Denise working with me I sold my house in Mill Ridge after owning since 1982 As an absent owner renting it for many years she was most helpful during the sale process.. Her quick response when we first discussed my desire to sell led to a contract offer in just a matter of days and closing before the end of 2017 Denise is very up front with response to any questions I had.. Thank you Denise for your kindness and quick action when it was needed.."

"Denise is a very competent realtor. She is responsive and always answered or returned our calls. She was a calming force in a turbulent sale. Also Denise's expertise helped guide us to a successful closing which is the goal of course. We would highly recommend her or use her again as our realtor.

Denise Weinkle was the best real estae agent we have ever worked with, and that is saying a lot since we have bought and sold over 16 homes in our lifetime.  She is a great negotiator, very responsive to our every need and is extremly knowledgeable about  the area, market and proper pricing.  A friend and a professional all in one.

We used Denise to buy our house and although we ended up buying a "for sale by owner" home, she was encouraging, knowledgeable, and patient with us. She is caring, experienced and your best option! I encourage you to work with Denise to sell your current home and to buy your next. She cares about, what you care about and get the results you want!

This was our second time working with Denise. We enjoyed her so much with our first home purchase; it was no question that we would ask her to be our agent with listing our home and purchasing a new one. Denise is efficient, thorough, and extremely professional to work with. She responds to all questions and concerns immediately and helps walk you through the process so that it is as easy as possible. Denise is knowledgeable of the High Country and helped us find the perfect home in the perfect location. I highly recommend using Denise for buying a new home or selling your current home.

Since we had a great experience with our ReMax Realtor in Houston, we chose to use the same company for purchasing our new home in Boone and this is how we found Denise. We appreciated the fact that she is very communicative; it never took her long to respond to our many questions and concerns. Since we live in Houston, we needed someone who could liaison on our behalf and Denise proved to be that person. She remained patient with us through the entire process which, at times, became stressful. We also relied on Denise to assist us with many of the details which probably were not in her scope as a realtor, for which she worked above and beyond our expectations and we are grateful for that. We highly recommend Denise to anyone who is looking for a Realtor; she's knowledgeable, reliable and easy to work with.

Denise was well aware of the area, willing to work with us until we found what we wanted. She was also very easy to get a hold of throughout the entire process, start to finish. Thank you Denise!

Denise Weinkle has been a pleasure too work with. She has sold two houses for us. If we are ever in the market to buy in the High Country area again, she will be the first person we will contact. She is courteous, professional and friendly. We could not have asked for a better agent.

Jennings 6/2016

Denise was very professional from beginning to end! She was very patient with my husband and I through the process of selling our home on Sugar. When other agents could care less about customer service (and there are many!!), Denise and Barbara Thomas went above and beyond. I recommend them highly!

O”Neill 6/2016



Scott and I just want to let you know that we appreciate all your work and energy in getting our house sold.  We very much appreciate all your successful efforts.

You always returned our phone calls and was always courteous, patient and professional with us.

We are very glad to have known you and wish you the best in the future.

Denise is very professional in every way.  We could not have been happier with her.  We went through our selling process from out of state and Denise was always there for us to handle situations that came up throughout the transaction.  She is always pleasant, very knowledgeable and clearly has her customer’s best interest at heart.  Because Denise is truly an honest and trustworthy person, we feel fortunate that we worked with her.  She comes highly recommended!!

Floyd 2/2016


Denise is wonderful to work with. She has the patience and knowledge to get you through what can be a very stressful event, with ease. Since I was the seller of a vacation/rental property and lived several hours away, I relied heavily on Denise to assist me with a lot of details outside the normal duties of a realtor. Denise worked above and beyond my expectations and I really appreciated her hard work and quick responsiveness. I would highly recommend Denise to anyone who needs a professional that is reliable, easy to work with, and motivated.

Breece 02/16


From the first conversation over the phone, Denise was extremely professional and knowledgeable. All our contact was over the phone/or email until closing and not one minute did I feel Denise wasn't giving me her all. She knew who I could contact for cleaning/packing/and everything in between. She immediately had the house in shape for a web presentation. My mother & I were extremely pleased with the care and attention she gave us. Denise walked us through every aspect of the sale which was swift and carefree. I would definitely recommend her to sell another home for anyone who is in need of this service.

Lori B.  August 2015


Denise is an excellent realtor, very knowledgeable of the area, did a great job of listening to what we wanted and found homes for us that fit our needs and our budget. Denise went above and beyond with handling various appointments for us since we were relocating across the country. If you are looking for a realtor, Denise is an excellent choice.


The Hutchin’s  08/2015


Denise is a highly professional, motivated agent. She stuck with us for well over a year as we tried to find the 'perfect' house. She has much patience and her calm demeanor is well appreciated. We highly recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling. We give her an A+!

The Kirks’ 8/2015


Denise is a highly professional realtor. She was easy to work with and never felt pressured like other professionals I worked with. She went over and beyond her professional duties and made the process very easy.

G. Roy 7/2015


After looking for property for almost a year in Watauga and Avery counties,  we realized that a lot of people, including real estate agents, were on "mountain time", that is, no sense of urgency.  Then we found Denise Weinkle.

Not only did she proverbially 'cross her t's and dot her i's,' the information she provided for us was invaluable in making a sage decision. You would have thought we were purchasing a half million dollar piece of property, but in reality, we bought a 4 acre, undeveloped property.

She has all the ingredients for the quintessential realtor:  attention to detail, availability, by sharing valuable local contact information,  which was and will continue to be a great benefit for us.  She presented the facts on many properties from a neutral perspective, thus not swaying our decisions. Overall, we couldn't have made a better choice in a realtor.

Denise did a really good job as our Realtor during our search for a cabin in the High Country. She has extensive knowledge of the area and the market. She was very patient as we searched for the perfect cabin. If you are looking for a Realtor that is willing to go the extra mile to make sure you get what you are looking for, call Denise. Highly recommended.

Meinhardt 3/2014



Denise is AWESOME!

My husband and I were first time buyers and Denise helped us navigate through all the murky waters of Real Estate.  She was available when we needed for visiting homes, inspections on our new property and if we just had questions (of which there were many)! Her honesty and expertise are truly amazing, and a genuine interest for her clients put her far above the expectation of what you might get with a REALTOR.   I would recommend Denise to anyone looking to buy or sell!!!

Kiri de la Cerda 3/2014


Denise represented us on the sale of our home and actually helped us get under contract 3 times.  Due to circumstances beyond our control, the first 2 contracts fell through, but we stuck with Denise and successfully got a third buyer.  I would recommend Denise as a REALTOR who is responsive, shares all feedback (positive and negative), and helped us through a difficult process.

Johnson 2/2014


Russ and I just wanted to thank you for your help in selling our home in Mill Ridge. You were so helpful in guiding us through the process and making this experience so much less stressful. We will recommend you to anyone we know who is planning to sell their property in that area as we know you will give them good and fair advice.


Joyce Yale 12/2013


The real estate service Denise recently provided my husband and I during a 2nd home search was excellent. She was friendly, courteous and professional and gave us great advice as our Buyer’s Agent. She patiently scheduled multiple and repeat showings and quickly researched and provided all the additional detailed information on the homes we were most interested in. She was even willing to show us property on her wedding anniversary because it was convenient for our weekend schedule! We were always kept informed on new or changed listings that met our requirements and Denise was available to us at any time. She helped us dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s in the paperwork to satisfy the most demanding of Buyers and kept the house hunt brief and productive. We successfully made an offer on a great home that suits all our needs and desires at a price we were willing to pay and we couldn’t be happier. We would highly recommend working with Denise to anyone interested in buying or selling property in the area. We hope to buy additional rental property in the area in the future and certainly intend to call on Denise!

Dear Denise, Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did all the way from showing us the house-up to the closing - within 2 weeks! You took us through al the steps with a lot of care and at the same time very professionally and very thoroughly. We can not thank you enough for your hard work, your awareness to details, your knowledge and experience. Your care and hard work exceeded all expectations and were over and beyond your duty! With all our gratitude,

"After enduring three love to talk but unable to listen real estate agents, I found a real estate human being willing to listen and comprehend my needs. Denise Weinkle was very cognizant of what my goals were to attain. Denise went the extra step to cover all the bases and it paid off, I'm a happy camper. If you want to relax and have the comfort, you will not have to look any further for your needs in the real estate field. Call Denise or go by and visit and discover my hidden gem of my secret."


Great job helping Helen and I sell our condo in Banner Elk. You worked very hard, and we appreciate your efforts. We will keep you in mind if we or any of our friends are interested in Real Estate in your area in the future.

Thanks again,


"If it wasn't for Denise's ability to cope with the challenges of closing while we were overseas we wouldn't be living in our dream house. She alleviated all the stress of the buying process with her constant communication and reassuring attitude. Not only did we make a great business contact but a friend for life!"

Scott & Christine

"My daughter referred me to Denise Weinkle while I was house hunting in the Boone area. Denise's experience and professional advice was greatly appreciated throughout the buying process. She made me feel comfortable through each step of the way. I would refer Denise to anyone new to the area, as her personality and local knowledge is a great asset to any potential buyer."


Denise is a great REALTOR, was responsive to all our needs and most importantly, listened to us. Truly, my husband and I were picky and a hard sell, yet she found the perfect house for us. For at least three years, she located & forwarded properties and kept us abreast of current market area trends.

Snow on the incline, rain or shine, she made herself available to show us everything in Watauga and neighboring counties. She has extended herself both professionally and personally and she has become a wonderful friend and neighbor. She fought for us especially with the little things in buying our home. I would not hesitate if we were to buy another home, to list with Denise. She is a "realtor's" realtor and the best professional out there!
