BIOGRAPHY - DENISE CONNOR
Don’t let Denise Connor’s pint-size appearance fool you. She has the energy of a teenager, and the heart of a giant. She overcomes obstacles and takes them in stride. Her entrepreneurial tendencies were apparent early in her career, when she prevailed in the fashion industry, both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. She became a successful model (where standards favored individuals of much ‘taller’ proportions) as well as a hairstylist and make-up artist. Since her retirement from the industry, she spends time educating and mentoring other young models and stylists.
It was Denise’s entrepreneurial spirit and social connections that made her destined for real estate. She travels in entertainment circles and keeps up on the latest trends of the ever-growing city of Nashville, Tennessee (Music City, USA). She utilizes her flair for style & fashion to work with selective clientele who are seeking upscale homes which reflect Nashville’s eclectic & artistic lifestyle. And this is what has given her the title of ‘Your Uptown Agent’.
After retiring from the fashion industry, Denise and her husband, Mike, relocated from Las Vegas to Nashville for a change of scenery. Mike is an IT consultant and wanted to take advantage of the city’s growth, and Denise has always had a passion for real estate and architecture. Plus, her past experience would translate seamlessly to Nashville’s fashion-forward and trendy character. So not being one to sit idle, Denise began to visit model homes as a ‘hobby’, and during one of those visits was approached with the opportunity to become a hostess. A hostess shows the model homes and answers questions about the home and neighborhood, but does not engage in sales conversation. After a few months, clients were asking to work with her, so with the blessing of the builder, Denise decided to get her real estate license.
Denise is an exceptional listener and works closely with clients regarding their selective needs, as well as step by step details of their transaction. This is where her mentoring heart really shines through. She’s great at working with creatives who are seeking an active lifestyle in the upscale areas of the city.
Today, Denise enjoys a full time real estate career and loves showing her clients all that the Nashville lifestyle has to offer. She loves using her creative skills to help her clients decorate or stage their homes, and even enjoys showing them nightlife, shopping and other outdoor activities. Behind that pint-size appearance, her bubbly personality shines brightly enough to make all her clients feel like ‘stars’.
