Client Testimonials

The first offer was given to us by Dave Denton within 18 hours of house listing. Offer was accepted within 24 hours. Dave Denton informed us that three additional offers came in the next 24 hours. Total of 4 offers and only three showings.

Dave Denton knew the market and kept us in the loop at every step leading up to the listing and through the closing. Dave contacted us a couple weeks after the closing to see if we had any further questions or concerns.

Dave's recommendations for fixing minor problems in the house and also removing extra furniture and clutter assisted greatly in making the house attractive to potential buyers. Arthur & Diane M.

Now that we have settled down from travels and the closing, I would like to express our appreciation for all your help through this process. It certainly made the process easier with the guidance of dear trusted friends. Cleo and I are already planning for the next steps and we are both looking forward to the next phase of our lives in Columbia.

Dave and Carolyn are great! They helped us through the whole process even when things weren't part of their job. We had to move before the house was under contract. They always make sure the house was in good condition to show. The house went under contract in less than 2 months, even though it was a down season in real estate. When the house went under contract , because we were not there, they helps us fulfill a lot of the buyer requirements. Our Sale was super smooth, thanks to Dave and Carolyn. C.J & Keren M.

They met with me to sign papers, offers, and negotiations at convenient times for me.

They are amazing people and I would highly recommend anyone in the Columbia area to use them to either buy or sell their property. Thank you Dentons! L. Barnett

As first time buyers, we had lots of questions and felt very unprepared for the whole thing. The Denton's made the process so much easier to get through thanks to their patience and experience.

Dave and Carolyn Denton went above and beyond what I ever expected! I needed to get the Condo sold while living in Oregon. They regulararly called to inform me the status. They also brought my mother hot meals, brought groceries to her, ran errands, and took her to the doctor while she lived in the Condo until it sold. I am eternally grateful that they were representing my mother and I in all areas of the listing process. Through all of this, we have built a life long relationship. Good grief- Dave even loaned me his truck to use for a day as I moved my mom's furniture out. Carolyn also listed all the furniture we needed to give away online for us. Dave and Carolyn also personally got us a motel room the night before closing so we would have a place to stay. These two are a blessing from God!!! Who would have ever expected this kind of caring and love from a realtor...... Thumbs up to the Dentons! Ann C. & Frank D.

The Dentons are the best real estate agents we have ever worked with. They have our total endorsement, and we unhesitatingly recommend them to our friends. They helped us find a house to buy, and sold our other house quickly in a down market. They went above and beyond the call of duty more than once. The Dentons take excellent care of their clients. Ralph & Laura P.

Dave and Carolyn Denton are remarkable realtors; I've dealt with them before and was delighted to find them available again through Century 21. They work harder than any other realtor I've ever had. They know their business and have excellent contacts to get done any of the many little and big things needed to prepare a house for sale. I'll call on them again should I need a realtor in the Columbia area. Jill R.

Dave and Carolyn Denton are great to work with. I've dealt with many other realtors in the past and found that the Denton's are the most professional, dedicated, responsive and enjoyable couple I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Our condo sale was quick and the steps to closing painless. Garry & Ruth Ann S.

Dave & Carolyn were great and we will not hesitate to recommend them to others for either buying or selling a home. If by chance we need to sell our home in the future we will definitely use Dave & Carolyn again. Dan & Jenna

Dave and Carolyn were so refreshing to work with! I have had bad to mediocre experiences with real estate agents in the past, and was a little apprehensive when moving to Columbia. They worked tirelessly to ensure I was aware of properties meeting my requirements, but beyond that they really were able to understand my unique desires. Dave and Carolyn's knowledge of the market and keen insight were invaluable. It is so refreshing to experience what a quality Realtor can do for you. I could not more highly recommend Dave and Carolyn and will not hesitate to work with them in the future. Bart F.

Dave and Carolyn, Thanks for helping us four times now through buying our first home, selling it profitably, finding a rental to get us by, and now helping us to buy such a great home and property at a great price. Your advice has proven itself each time. One final inspection remains, the bass inspection. See you soon for the fish fry. Brent and Melissa Myers

We could not ask for better guidance and representation than provided by the Dentons. From the lengthy search process to our final negotiations, we were treated professionally and with great courtesy. The Dentons went out of their way to be helpful and did far more than really required. We give our highest recommendation for their work. Jeff & Laura P

We could not have asked for anything more than the service we got from Dave and Carolyn Denton. They went above and beyond and made what could have been a nerve wracking experience an exciting and enjoyable one instead.--Mike & Beth B

Dave was most helpful in many ways. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Columbia market and found us a buyer with special needs and came up with a great plan for financing that was of help to us and the buyer. He and Carolyn are easy to work with, easy to access, and are very hard workers. I would be happy to use them again and recommend them to friends without hesitation or reservation. Roger & Donna H

Dave Denton was wonderful. Detail oriented, clear, helpful. He offered great referrals for other services in Columbia. He has even gone above and beyond AFTER the sale, helping us resolve other issues. I can't say enough positive things about Dave and our dealing with him.--Jeffi and Terry A.

I would use them again in a heartbeat and recommend them to any of my friends. Connor E.

Dave and Carolyn are long time acquaintances and members of my church. They took good care of me. I am a widow and had lived in the same house for 37 years and had very little knowledge concerning real estate transactions and they were very helpful. As they usually came to my house, the only connection I had to the office was the persons who called concerning showings. As you probably know, they had a signed contract for me (selling my old house) in 19 days. Quite a feat in this current market.--Barbara H

Dave and Carolyn Denton were my agents as a buyer. I am not from Columbia and they were my eyes and ears. Through this hunt for a condo for my college student sons, I feel we became friends.When I am ready to sell the condo, I will once again use Dave and Carolyn Denton. Mary A.

Both Dave and Carolyn were simply the best! I could tell my best interests were in the forefront of their minds. They both also took time to provide explanations, and as a first time home buyer this meant a great deal to me. Dave and Carolyn also went over and above their duties at various stages in the process. Cynthia J.

.As a couple I worked with Carolyn more. Dave certainly helped with many structural questions. I feel as if both went above and beyond their duties.--Charles & Barbara O.

I am so happy I chose my agent and will recommend to anyone. Thanks Dave and Carolyn.--Evelyn K.

My fiancee and I were first time home buyers. Dave and Carolyn were very helpful explaining the process of how things worked.When we first started looking for a home we had the mindset of a real estate agent worrying about themselves, just getting the commission and moving on. That statement could not be more untrue with these two. I can count on several occasions where we had a question about something and had a reply within minutes, day or night. Dave and Carolyn went above and far beyond our expectations while purchasing our new home. Cody & Ashten H.

"I will never be able to say Thank You enough for all that you have done for us. When I got home last night and saw the new Welcome mat..... I was at a loss for words. I LOVE it and I LOVE our new home. The boys slept like little logs last night - each in their own room for the first time ever. Mike and I are going to be so happy there - please feel free to stop by and visit ANY TIME! Again - thanks for everything and I'm sure we'll be seeing you in the future." Beth B.

"We so appreciate all you two did to get Ibbie's house sold. One less worry for us. It is so nice to have that taken care of. Our deepest gratitude to both of you". J.R. & Linda (This after another agent failed to sell the house. The Thank You note was accompanied by a bonus check for $1,000)

"Dave and Carolyn were extremely helpful. This being our first home purchase, I don't think we could have done it without them. They answered any questions we had and explained every step in the process. They worked around our work schedule to ensure we saw every house that fitted our needs. Not only are Dave and Carolyn great Realtors, they are great people! I would recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home. Thank you!"

Dustin C.

"As a first time home buyer, I didn't know quite what it would be like except for what I saw on tv shows. Dave and Carolyn were there every step of the way-explaining things, taking care of issues that came up, and just be helpful. I would recommend them to any first home buyer because of their experience and knowledge about the business." Theresa Y.

"The Denton Team were very professional and really went beyond the call of duty working late hours and extra long weekends to make sure we found our home and kept the paperwork moving. Can't remember the last time I had such a great experience." David & Vivian

"Dave and Carolyn make a great team. They showed me what I wanted to see and worked with me until I found the right home. Not to mention, they are just really nice people and working with them was a pleasure." Nancy

"Dave and Carolyn were a great team to work with. Several deal breaker problems occurred will approaching deadlines and they went out of their way to get the other agents to resolve the issue while keeping us informed in the process. Thanks to them, we have our dream house!" Charley & Robin

"The experience couldn't have been better. I felt the Denton's listened to me and understood what I needed and wanted when selling my home and buying another. They went the extra mile to support me." Lynn

"I wanted to thank Dave and Carolyn Denton!!! They went way out of their way helping me find this house, and make closing as easy as possible. I am extremely satisfied with the services I got.

"We have worked with Dave ans Carolyn Denton in buying/selling 3 houses over an 18 year period and been extremely pleased with them in each situation. Dave and Carolyn listened to our wants, answered questions thoroughly and in a timely manner and stay abreast of the changes in the real estate business. We were impressed with how they anticipated oour needs in any situation and responded quickly and efficiently." Jim & Gwen

"Dave and Carolyn, Thanks so much for all your help and support over the past few months. We absolutely love the new place and can't imagine being anywhere else. We're pretty sure Hemingway (the cat) likes it here as well. Owning this condo is so much more financially and personally appealing than renting, and having been through the home-buying process once with people we trust will really help us in the future when the Army makes us sell, move, and buy in a hurry. We couldn't have hoped for more in our first home, and can't imagine working through the process with anyone else." Joel & Jennifer

"Please accept this gift as my 'Thank You!' for all the work you did on my behalf in selling my home. I really appreciate your efforts!" Sharon Marionfeld

"Thank you again for making the home-buying experience not only bearable, but enjoyable! We look forward to working with you again in the future." Pam & James

"I wanted to thank you for helping us find this house. I just completed the survey, you got all 10s and good comments. We always had great and fun times while riding with you. You guys are aces in my book. Thank you!!!" A.U.

Dave and Carolyn Denton are great agents. We've known them for years & used them in the past. It is their honor, ethics & honesty which lead us back to them and lead us to refer them to multiple friends. Howard & Sharon
