She understands the complexities of the real estate market and with her intelligence and innovation will always ensure the absolute best result. Denay is by far the best realtor I've worked with and I am really looking forward to working with her in the future."

Denay did a great job in assisting me in the purchase of my first home. She took the time to understand my preferences, and coupled with her extensive knowledge of the San Diego area, was able to ensure that all properties considered were a perfect match for my needs. Unlike some previous real estate agents that I had dealt with, Denay exhibited an enormous amount of patience, an irreplaceable quality. Denay also took the time to answer any and all questions I had regarding (but not limited to) the bidding process, escrow, and the massive amount of paperwork that came our way. I unquestionably recommend Denay to all home buyers.
I certainly hope to have the opportunity to work with Denay again in the future.

Denay was recommended to me by a friend at work. Years ago, I bought a condo in Michigan and really liked my realtor. I was having trouble finding someone to live up to my high expectations, but I was about to redefine my idea of a good realtor. Don't get me wrong, my previous experience was wonderful and I felt very easy because my realtor was experienced with first time home buyers, but there really wasn't much work involved in the condo buying process in Michigan - at least, not compared with buying a detached home in California. Denay was basically awesome.
My boyfriend and I called her our "real estate angel" because she was so much fun to work with, knew her business so well, and went out of her way to look out for our best interests. I know, that kind of sounds like a line, but it's completely true!! Her negotiating skills were excellent and we landed a place for much less than we had planned to spend, mainly due to her good advice and the fact that she really did put our needs first. I was amazed at how much time she devoted to us and her encouraging attitude throughout the whole process. I honestly don't think I could find a better realtor to work with if I tried - which I won't. We will definitely work with Denay again. I can't not praise her highly enough.

Thank you for helping me to explore-to-locate a home in La Jolla in the $2.5 million price arena. My experience with you was memorable because you were patient, knowledgeable, informative and gracious in our tour of homes.
It was very helpful to me in that you assessed the features that I wanted in the home and property before we began our adventure. You followed up with questions to me for clarity and direction, rather than assuming. With the Feng Shui aspect that I hesitated to share, you encouraged me to articulate all that I would like to have in my dream home without judgment, and then researched and presented close matches for us to visit. Your follow-up was impressively consistent, detailed and precise. You made me feel very comfortable in our pursuit of my home and its "requirements," as well as, secure with the privacy of my shared information. I want you to know how valuable that was to me. This kind of intelligent personalized approach is one I wish I could see in more businesses and is a mark of true individual leadership in you and what you do. You know how to achieve excellent rapport with people.
Too often, sellers' representative's do not know how to really actively listen and give plenty of silence and space for someone like me, a buyer, to think things over. You were not always interjecting your thoughts, but chose constructive items and proffered them for my consideration at a pace that was good for me. Your good listening skills, and empathy that matched, were exemplary of someone I would want to help me find something as precious as a new home. I will be back in touch with you as soon as the transfer assignment and other life issues settle out.
I very much appreciated your informed alternative options regarding building, architects, contractors, designers and property. Your comparative analysis and number crunching, as well as yearly projections, made me see considerable more valuable ways to achieve what I want.
While we were looking in the La Jolla area, as I specified certain streets and areas, you were positive and open in your approach. This, and all the other qualities that you demonstrated in our purchasing relationship, have given me the momentum to recommend you to others I know who will be looking for homes soon near Scripps Institution of Oceanography. I give you my highest recommendation. Anyone who does not realize your qualities and service would certainly be missing out on a great opportunity.
Again - thank you! You will hear more from me in the future, Denay.

Being in a new country has been a difficult transition. But you helped me to get through the hard things. It was an idea which you transformed into reality. You are a very nice person, very motivated, always on the move, who takes the time to understand what the customer wants. The home I bought was the first home on the list, if you remember. I frequently tell my friends how easy it was to make such a big step, as buying a home, and this is just because you made it seem so easy. There was a huge effort from you, staying on top of those people who I came in contact with, such as the financing institution I used. In a couple of words , it was fast, it was exactly what I wanted, and I want to thank you very much. It was a big help.

I met Denay in early 2005 when she was working with a close friend. I observed her working very hard to both sell my friend's property and find a new home within a limited price range. I was impressed with the hard work.
In the summer of 2005, Denay helped me to sell a rental duplex in El Cajon. We established a price range that was both reasonable and optimistic. At this time, the market had just turned and prices had more than stabilized. Most buyers had an, "I'll wait and get a better price attitude". Denay's energy was the best thing going for me. She repeatedly advertised and showed the property and at the same time helped a nervous and anxious client (me) get through the process. We got an acceptable offer, went to escrow, and almost closed on time. At every point, Denay was pushing to accommodate my schedule and business requirements.
I was very pleased by my experience with Denay, and recommend her to my friends and business associates.

I sold the home for this couple in Spring Valley and shortly after helped them and their daughter/son-in-law purchase a home in Lakeside. We were able to find a home in the right price range and with enough space so they could all live comfortably in the same home.
"We came in contact with Denay Trinidad in August, 2004 when we were looking for a home to purchase. We had certain requirements, as we were purchasing a home that was large enough for my husband and me as well as our daughter and son-in-law. We had a certain price range as well as certain specifics that were needed for 2 families to live together.
Denay Trinidad was easy to talk to and a very hard worker. After learning of all of our specifics, she went to work for us and found us "our home". Denay has integrity that you don't always find in real estate. We would have no trouble recommending, (which we have) to others as well as using her in the future."

This is from a client of mine. I sold her condo in 2004 and helped her buy another home in 2005. When she had to sell her home in 2006, this is what she wrote to me:
"I really wish I had listed with you for my sale, I'm not entirely unhappy with my realtor, but disappointed based on her reputation in this area. I'm currently negotiating a short sale on my property after the first offer 92 days in, but I do understand that that is the norm in today's market, just the support during the process compared to yours was very different. That's why I'm referring you to my friends!
Thanks again for everything,"
