As a lifetime resident of the peninsula, it would only make sense that Denise’s expertise resides in her backyard. Specializing in both new construction and existing homes in Hillsborough, Burlingame and San Mateo, Denise celebrates over 25 years in real estate sales. Initially with Fox & Carskadon, and later as a principal of Castilleja Fine Homes, Inc. a luxury home development company, Denise Laugesen understands what professionalism, integrity, commitment and ‘within budget’ truly mean.

Her real estate experience, business success and banking background has placed her on all sides of a property transaction which means a more comprehensive, strategic approach for her clients whether they are buying, selling or investing. Her charismatic personality and positive attitude in any market is refreshing.
The professional relationships she has cultivated over the years with construction and remodeling contractors; interior and exterior designers; everyday maintenance craftsman; and highly-specialized artisans has evolved into a more than hearty contact list. This list is like a virtual concierge service that past clients have found to be an extremely helpful, valuable, and money saving benefit of choosing Denise as their real estate consultant.
