Dennis GreeneDennis is an old-fashioned pencil/paper kind of guy that happens to have the modern technology know how to help you feel confident in listing your home. Dennis joined Tristate Partners as a licensed Realtor in 2017 wanting to do what he loves most, meet and help people.
Dennis started off in the sales world as a door to door salesman often aggravating people at dinnertime to minimal success. In a short period of time, he learned how to manage barking dogs, suspicious stink eyes, and vociferous children to great success, all while still aggravating people at dinnertime. His sales experience ranges from Mom and Pop to corporate business to business accounts.
After several years in the real estate industry, Dennis excitedly joined the team to take on a task that few dare to do, door to door representation. His enjoyment of meeting new people in the gorgeous neighborhoods of the tri-state lead him to the door of the real estate industry. He is now giving you his expertise, as well as that of the Tristate Partners team, in the sale of your home.
Dennis’s favorite thing in the world is spending time curled up on the couch with his son, watching a movie. His time spent residing in Park Hills gave him the opportunity to overlook the Cincy skyline at leisure, solidifying his affinity for this area. Now nestled safely in the comfort and convenience of his hometown, Edgewood, Dennis is happy to claim resplendent Kentucky as his lifelong home.
Dennis’s passions include enjoying the sunshine as much as nature allows as well as scenic motorcycle rides. His other passions are listening to music, attending sporting events, movies, and comedy shows.
