Personal Profile

Being a real estate agent involves much more than just buying and selling one of life's most important investments. It's the people inside the houses and properties that matter most. My guiding principles include a commitment to providing personal service that exceeds expectations while maintaining a dedication to the highest professional standards. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and minor in Psychology from Nebraska Wesleyan University. I have been licensed since 2001 and obtained my Associate Broker license in 2012. I hold the GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute) designation and the CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) designation. Prior to joining Century 21 Realty Team, I worked for over 5 years with a global relocation company so I am very familiar with folks who are relocating and know the challenges they face. I am a member of the Columbus Board of Realtors, Nebraska Association of Realtors and the National Realtors Association. I served on the Columbus Board of Realtors for 10 years, including serving as President.

    Denise is amazing! She effectively communicated every step of the process. I'm blown away at how Denise is able to site numbers off the top of her head. She defineltly knows the Columbus market.
  • Buyer review
    Denise took over for us when my original broker was sick. She was amazing! She kept up communication throughout the entire process and put everything into terms that I can understand. I've already recommended her to friends and coworkers that are in the market!
  • Seller review
    Denise was a delight to work with. I feel she appropriately appraised our property and advised us of the pitfalls we might encounter when selling an older property. She moved quickly once we had agreed to let her represent us with this sale. The marketing material and virtual tour of our property was impressive. She assisted us in evaluating multiple offers, choosing the one that would allow us to conclude the sale quickly and the offer was over asking price. The closing occurred in less than 45 days. All in all a great experience.
  • Seller review
    Denise Thelen made the process of selling my house easy and seamless. I highly recommend her for any real estate needs in the future.
  • Seller review
    I am so thankful we chose Denise to buy our new home and sell our old. She listened to all of our needs and wishes and helped us find an amazing new home. She gave us excellent ideas on how to make our old home more appealing to potential buyers and we are so grateful! It sold in less than 48 hours! She kept us informed every step of the way for both houses and made buying and selling with Century21 effortless. We will be forever grateful for all of her time and hardwork at making our dreams a reality when finding our forever home! I can't recommend her enough! If you want someone who works tirelessly to make your families wishes and needs a reality, who knows exactly what needs to be done, and someone who will go above and beyond, look to Denise. You will not be disappointed!
  • Buyer review
    Denise made the process easy to understand by taking the time to explain the ins and outs of the purchase. My process had several bumps in the road, but Denise made it possible! She was a dream to work with. She was quick and thorough with the questions I asked. She is no nonsense in her delivery of information, but with kindness and tactfulness.
