Denise Pilkington

 Broker in Charge  
11183 US Highway 70 Bus W, Clayton, NC 27520

Denise relocated to North Carolina from Alabama in 1978 after graduating from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) with a degree in Office Management. She worked as a paralegal for 22 years before becoming a REALTOR in 2004. It’s not surprising that she took this career turn as her father was a Builder/Developer and her mother had been a Real Estate Broker as well so she really grew up around Real Estate.

As a long time Johnston County resident, Denise works with Buyers and Sellers throughout Johnston County, and the Triangle area. She loves working with First Time Home Buyers as they go through the exciting process of accomplishing their goal of buying that first home. She also specializes in working with Seniors to meet their needs of moving close to their children, downsizing, etc. Says Denise, “I try to stay in tune with my clients’ needs and wants and am always very responsive to their questions and concerns”.

Denise also holds several real estate designations including the SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist) designation specializing in meeting the unique Real Estate needs of Seniors, ABR (Accredited Buyer's Representative) and GREEN (Energy Efficiency and Sustainablility).  She strongly promotes and encourages homes featuring Universal Design.  She feels that homes should be built so that all owners will have accessibility throughout their lives and be able to stay in their homes longer.

Some special honors Denise has received:

2018 Coldwell Banker Advantage International Diamond Society
2016,2017 Coldwell Banker Advantage International Diamond Society
2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 Johnston County Top Producer Council
2013 President's Award
2011 Johnston County Realtor of the Year


In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, reading and traveling. She is also a proud and active supporter of Susan G. Komen Foundation, Easter Seals and the Methodist Home for Children

We already knew Denise and that is why we chose her. We were not disappointed in any form. She is very professional and always was looking out for our best interest. Hope we never have to sell another house but if we do I hope she can help us again.

Denise was the perfect agent for us in purchasing our recent home. She was proactive in communication and was very clearly on our side in all negotiations. There were times she even went out of the way to accommodate our available times for meeting. So grateful for her and would work with her again in a heartbeat!

Denise is a professional in every way. She advised us as the market improved and sold our home in a very short time and got the price we posted. She also helped us in finding the right person in our new location to buy our new home. This was the second time I have used Denise in Selling and buying a new home.
