Featured Michigan Agent: Denise Bellore

Denise Bellore, associate broker at Keller Williams Paint Creek, has experienced firsthand the ebbs and flows of the real estate market. She has proven herself alongside the ever-changing trends in the economy, the housing market and even advancements in technology. While these events have caused some real estate agents to leave the business, it is in spite of it, that Denise is at the top of her game. 

Denise leads the Denise Bellore Group with the vision of collaboration, mentoring and encouragement for growth and education. “We are heavy on learning and helping each other to reach personal goals,” Denise said. “We respect each other and take real approaches to life and work. We are strong in more ways than the numbers.”

The bottom line for Denise is that it’s never too late to find success in real estate. “It’s never too late to give generously and live generously,” Denise said. “I always say, ‘it’ll all work out,’ and somehow it always does — especially with an open mind and a positive attitude. You’ve got to have faith in the business, faith in the wins and faith in the losses.”
