Denny is not just a sales agent, he has a Broker’s License which is the highest level of achievement in the industry.
Denny studied Business Administration at Texas State University. After spending 15 years in banking and owning a small business, one of his clients who was a real estate broker inspired him to get his real estate license due to his love of looking at homes and his knowledge of the Austin area. Denny earned his real estate license in 1992 and broker’s license in 2006. He managed his own brokerage for 13 years before joining Dochen REALTORS®. He joined the team because of Carol Dochen’s reputation in the industry and a desire to be with a smaller brokerage that offered more of a family atmosphere and one-on-one interactions.

Denny is amazing. We have been using him since we bought his house when we moved to Austin in 1998. We feel so lucky that he was the owner/agent and continued to use him as we sold and bought homes over the years. Denny is very professional, detail oriented, will take care of you from the beginning to the end of your transaction. He looks out for your best interest. Your price range does not matter, Denny will provide the same level of service for all his clients. Our family members also used Denny when buying their homes. Denny is the best!
Denny has been our realtor on 3 of our houses and 3 friends homes. Nowadays there are so many part time or incapable realtors. Denny is a true professional, who really cares about you and what you want. What I have come to see the need of a realtor is someone who knows the market, pricing and most importantly who is able to negotiate (i mean really negotiate, not just hand someone your offer). Denny has proven to me to be one of the best I have ever used. He has built a relationship of trust with me and my friends who used him.
Denny helped me to fix up and sell my home. He put a huge amount of effort and expertise into getting the property into great shape with the budget we had to work with. His knowledge of the neighborhood and his marketing plan produced multiple strong offers as soon as the house hit the market. Closing was easy because Denny had taken care to prepare and he knows how to negotiate a deal. I couldn't be happier with the whole experience and I recommend you get in touch with Denny Holt when you're ready to sell your home.
I have done business with Denny for several years and have had great experiences with him on each occasion. He is someone you can count on to treat you with respect. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
