I moved to the Triangle 4 years ago with my husband, son (he was actually away at school) and our fur babies. We have two chihuahuas, Pixel and Milo and one oversized cat, Rotten. Having lived in a few different states, I fell in love with the Raleigh area. It offers the best of all worlds. Great culture, things to do, amazing landscapes to enjoy and the people are great.

    After years in customer support, technical sales and in the gaming industry, I wanted to get back into what I fell in love with years before, real estate. My childhood was spent around building homes with my dad. I have always had a toe in this field and absolutely love the aspect of helping someone find their dream home. I don't believe in forever homes but I do believe in dream homes for a moment in your life you're in. Nowadays, life happens at a much more fluid pace and having someone that understands that and thrives in that mentality I feel is an asset to my clients.

    As a newish resident to Raleigh, I offer the ability to look at the area as someone new would do. I have explored the area both as a new resident myself but also as an agent. I have discovered areas that offer something unique to everyone.

    Adviser and advocate are better words to describe what I do. For my home buyers, I am an adviser, I take the time to listen to what you are looking for, truly understand the journey you are on and uncover the true needs for you and your family in your new house. I love working with new home buyers, the excitement and satisfaction of helping someone realize their dream of owning a home is amazing. I am available and involved in every step to make the process as stress-free for you as possible.

    If you are selling a home I am an advocate. Creatively and tenaciously market your home to get you the best deal and sell your home as quickly as possible to ensure that. I have the ability to think outside the norm and apply that to get the most eyes on your property and get it sold. Selling a home can be an emotional time and it is important to understand that and make this process for you, easy and have you looking forward to the next step in life for you. As part of the Better Homes and Gardens Brand, I have access to tools and marketing opportunities that others do not in this field. I will talk plainly and frankly with you throughout the process. I value communication, honesty, and reliability. These are things I value in people I work with and things I do for you.


    I am an avid music lover and photographer. I love to take photos of landscapes, architecture and just capturing life moments. My husband and I are also HUGE board game players. During my downtime, you can either catch me at one of the great music venues around the Triangle or having game nights with our friends and playing games like Catan, Revolution or a whole closet full of others.

    My Client Testimonials

    "To start things off, when we first contacted Sharla Dennis we originally had a time frame of 6 months to a year for our relocation from the Houston area to Raleigh. The initial conversation was very easy going and she was not pushy at all or throwing a contract in our faces to sign. She took the time to listen to our very specific needs with no expectations and just let her bright personality shine through. Little did I know that stars would align to allow us to make our relocation sooner than expected and we knew Sharla was who we wanted. Buying a home from halfway across the country is no small deal but we felt very comfortable in Sharla's hands and we ended up with an agent who was super attentive to our wants from the floor plans, the area/location that fit our lifestyle, the zoning laws for our specific needs, everything. At one point we thought we might build custom on a lot and she recorded videos and took pictures of the various lots we thought might work. Sharla's laser focus was on understanding and taking care of our needs. Then it happened... She found us the home that checked all the boxes. It is rather nerve racking to put an offer on a home site unseen but Sharla took many photos for us and even brought along a general contractor to begin looking at some of the work we were going to require. She took care of initiating contact with the HOA on some of my requirements. With Sharla, we had no uneasiness putting the offer in. From there it was the race to get all the other stuff done... Inspections, survey, dealing with the lender, choosing a closing attorney and Sharla was brilliant through all of it. She was a bulldog when we needed her to be to get us to closing and a comfort when our stress was getting high. Her recommendations for inspector and closing g attorney were fantastic. Sharla always kept in touch and made sure we knew what was next and stayed on the game plan until we closed. I can't stress enough how awesome Sharla Dennis did for us to make our dream come true. I would recommend her to absolutely anybody " Josh & Megan McCown
    "I had the opportunity to work with Sharla for over a year in the Apartment Management Industry. In that time she became a favorite of not only the staff but the residents she assisted. Her work ethic, reliability and adaptability even in the most stressful situation made her a pleasure to work with. I would confidently recommend her to anyone who is trying to find or sell a home. " Sincerely, TJ Kinsey
