A native Angeleno, Denise Stephenson brings her extensive knowledge of the area to The Jermayne Shannon Group. Growing up in View Park-Windsor Hills, Denise attended parochial school and Palisades High School in Pacific Palisades. She enrolled at the University of Southern California before entering a law enforcement profession. Denise retired from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in 2017 at the rank of Lieutenant after over 30 years in law enforcement. Her tenure as an officer equipped her with integrity, a particular code of ethics, and an unwavering moral character. Additionally, she developed excellent listening skills and a keen eye for details. She views these traits as essential in the development of her relationships with both clients and team members. In 1994, Denise moved to the Altadena area after being drawn to its verdant landscape and friendly community. As a first-time home buyer, she sought to learn as much about the process as possible. The experience sparked her interest in becoming a real estate agent, and in 2006, she obtained her real estate license and began working at Prudential in Sierra Madre. Her clients regard her as one who upholds the fiduciary responsibility she has been entrusted to provide. A long-time resident of the Altadena Country Club area, she loves that her neighbors are genuine and care about one another. A mother of two daughters, Denise spends her time at home with her fiancé and two grandchildren when she’s not outdoors in the sunshine—enjoying boat rides on the lake, or horseback riding in the mountains. Denise nurtures her relationships and values them above all.
