I am Denise Lessert. Married to Dan Mertz and I have 4 beautiful children. I have lived in MN for 10 years and am from Louisiana. I graduated with a Masters Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling and worked as a care coordinator in the rehabilitation industry for 9 years before leaving that career to get into sales.
My husband and I own a fundraising sales business where we contract with national fundraising companies and help schools across MN raise money to help create better learning environments, etc for students. I should say up until May 2018 I worked as a fundraising sales rep, now my husband/partner handles the business.
In May 2018 I became a real estate agent. I currently have my license held by RE/MAX Results. I thoroughly enjoy being a real estate agent. I specialize mainly in helping buyers find homes, however I have held many listings in my first year. Statistics show that the average agent has approximately 6 transactions per year, so I feel having helped buy/sell 15 in my first year was a great achievement.
I have become the expert on my team with buyers that are relocating to MN. Offering alternative ways to show houses to buyers that are not living here yet has been a great asset to my business. Nothing is more rewarding then seeing new home buyers find their dream home!
