Denise Chapartéguy Senior Sales Associate CRS, CDPE, HAFA
Denise has lived and worked in Sonoma County since 1985. She has raised her family here, and loves the quality of life and opportunities afforded in the wine country. With a background in the family hotel business and customer service, Denise had a great foundation to launch her real estate career from. She views real estate as a “lifestyle” not a “business”—she loves the interaction with both peers and clients alike and being part of the journey to find her clients that perfect house, or facilitate a difficult or stressful transaction.
Denise has a strong network of professionals as part of PRONET to collaborate with and stay ahead of market inventory. In addition, she has several key certifications: “CRS” (Certified Residential Specialist), “CDPE” (Certified Distress Properties Expert) and “HAFA” (Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives). Denise believes in staying educated and learning new tools and technology to continually grow and meet her client’s needs.
Denise services all of Sonoma County with particular insight and experience on the corridor—Santa Rosa, Petaluma, Rohnert Park, Cotati, Windsor and Cloverdale. She incorporates her love of photography, nature and food into her career by meeting new people and participating in the community in a variety of venues. Denise is a committed professional to the industry and consumer with a passion for life and real estate.
She is caring and warm hearted and a tough negotiator.
"Denise Chaparteguy is a true professional. 18+ years ago when I was a new agent she amazed me with her outstanding knowledge and was kind and helpful and always had time for me. Her clients were devoted to her and it seemed she always had thank you cards on her desk for the 9 years we worked together. Since then we have kept in touch and done business together at other companies. She is caring and warm hearted and a tough negotiator. She knows the market inside out and is one of the best agents in the county, besides being a great person. I love to run into her and it seems like we never have enough time to catch up! I highly recommend Denise for both listings and buyers as she is great at transitions for those who need to sell before they buy, which can be complex and should only be handled by a top agent such as Denise. She also has the knowledge to handle complicated situations with grace. She will present you with all of your options and has her client's best interest at heart, I appreciate her integrity. You can get a sense of this just by meeting with her and discussing your real estate situation. She is tough, kind, and detail oriented. I have known her for 18+ years and as a fellow Realtor and top producer I can endorse her."

we now have a great Realtor and a friend that we trust.
"As complete strangers to the wine country real estate market, we had the good fortune of being introduced to Denise. Her experience and guidance was invaluable in helping us narrow our focus and find the right home in the right community. We made several trips from Texas and Denise was always there to help us in person on our house hunting expeditions and by phone or e-mail when we were at home. The long-distance home searching and buying process was far less stressful because we knew in Denise we had a true professional who knew our preferences and needs, and the skills required for a successful negotiation and purchase of a home. Most importantly, we now have a great Realtor and a friend that we trust."

Having Denise on my side was the best thing that could have happened for me.
"Giving up my home was not an easy decision. Denise guided me through the entire short sale process, however. She took the lead and took care of each step along the way. When there were challenges, she knew exactly how to handle them. Having Denise on my side was the best thing that could have happened for me."

Denise Chapartéguy is an incredible realtor.
"Denise Chapartéguy is an incredible realtor. She assisted us with two house purchases and one house sale in Windsor. When we were exploring the possibility of moving to Sonoma County, Denise gave us the grand tour with visits to homes in many different towns and neighborhoods that she thought would be a good match for us. We zeroed in on Windsor. After moving to Windsor, a house better suited to our needs came on the market. With Denise's help and expertise on short sales, we purchased it. Denise quickly sold the first house. Denise is great to work with. She’s professional, has great follow up, and a great sense of humor."
~ Randy & Julie Neff
We absolutely LOVE working with Denise!
"Denise has been our Realtor for about 12 years now helping us buy and sell whenever the need arose. We have even called her just for an opinion when we couldn't decide what to do. If she didn't know the answer (which was rare) she always knew someone who did. She has always been attentive to our needs and we never once felt like she was pushing us in a direction designed to maximize her profit. We absolutely LOVE working with Denise!"
~ Ross and Rebecca Sigari
