"Denise was a great help in selling a difficult estate property for us in New Canaan. Being professional, honest, knowledgeable and most helpful throughout the entire process. Her attention to detail was fantastic. With her quick response I felt that Denise treated our sale as if she was taking care of her own property. I have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone.

"Denise is one of the best, if not best Real Estate Broker we have worked with. She assisted us in selling two residential properties in New Canaan, and operated well above any expectations we had in advance. She is savvy, very experienced, and an expert negotiator. Based on her extremely timely communication and professionalism, and her broad network, we were able to sell our properties in record time, at above-expected selling prices. Highly recommend contacting Denise for any real estate objective."

"Denise Gannalo has been a top realtor in New Canaan for many years. We met her in the 1990s and she has listed and sold two homes and helped us find our last home. One home of 25 years sold in a day for more than we thought possible. She was also the listing agent and selling agent for our last home. She understands the market and guides her clients on the sell and buy side. She is a total professional and commands the respect of an extensive network in the New Canaan community. Thank you, Denise! JoAnn & Peter Keller"

"As a first time home seller Denise made selling our home a smooth process. She was with us every step of the way. I appreciated her honesty up front - ours was not an easy house to sell. She went above and beyond to get the house on the market quickly and was spot on with pricing. Her years of experience in New Canaan shined through the entire process. I could not have done it with out her. Thank you Denise! Pamela Ragusa

"When I recently decided to purchase of condo in Stamford, selecting Denise Gannalo was an easy decision, as I knew Denise has extensive experience in the local real estate marketplace, and is consistently a top performer at Raveis. Denise exceeded my expectations by guiding me though the many decisions to successfully close on a property, such as selecting appropriate properties for consideration, submitting a competitive bid and hiring various professionals (e.g. attorney, inspector, banker, etc.) necessary to complete the process. Denise was instrumental in ensuring the process went smoothly and we closed on time. I was so pleased that I recommended Denise to a close friend, who through Denise?s help, was able to quickly find a tenant for a rental property. I highly recommend Denise Gannalo!"
