Denese Berardesco


License Number: 0686093

My family relocated to McKinney, Texas from New Jersey in 2016. We also relocated to New Jersey (where we lived for five years) from California in 2011. I understand the challenges first--hand involved in cross-country relocations and the importance of establishing the family in the community. We were attracted to Collin County because of the school districts, sports, outdoor activities and entertainment options with a close proximity to Dallas. My prior real estate experience in Southern California and New Jersey has provided me a broad knowledge of other markets. I have also managed rental properties for the past ten years and understand how to effectively find quality tenants for a profitable return on investment. Previously, my success as a District Sales Manager was due to quality customer service, effective business negotiations, strong communication and quick understanding of new markets. My dedication and strong work ethics earned me consistent accolades including “District Sales Manager” of the year. Working for Biggs Realty has been a great fit for me. I am pleased to work for a company whose commitment to customer satisfaction (clients, customers and agents) far exceeds expectations. Biggs Realty has vision and thrives on innovation to support agents by streamlining processes to improve our quality of life with family. I look forward to helping you navigate through any future real estate needs (buying, selling, investments or rentals) utilizing my established work history, real estate background and Biggs’ Realty commitment to innovation and customer services.
