Dena Prasher has moved many times for reasons both personal and professional, and has a firsthand understanding that regardless of the reason, a move is not only a financial commitment but an emotional process as well. Dena is a project-oriented problem solver who partners with her clients to help them navigate the buying-selling-moving process as smoothly as possible. “When I make a change in my own life,” she says, “I refer to that next phase as my ‘next.’ I never tire of helping my clients with their own ‘next.’”
Enthusiastic and determined, Dena’s positive attitude and obvious sense of commitment to her clients and profession make her the Realtor of choice for a growing clientele. “I really work hard to understand people and what motivates them. My clients know that I have their best interests at heart and that they have my unswerving loyalty,” she says. “And having a good sense of humor helps me to diffuse things when challenges arise.”
Prior to her career in residential real estate sales, Dena was an account supervisor for international advertising firm GSD&M where she headed a team that focused on branding and rebranding endeavors, product launches, major advertising initiatives, consumer research, and media planning. Dena also applied her skills, both as a volunteer and professionally, to fundraising efforts for local non-profits, serving as development director for Bo’s Place and as a general consultant and event manager.
A seventh-generation Texan, Dena grew up in Dallas. She took her junior year of college abroad at the Paris Institute of Political Science. Dena graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in communications. After living in Austin and starting her family, she moved to Houston in 2001 and jokes that she was “greeted by Tropical Storm Allison and her 12 million mosquito friends.”
Notwithstanding her demanding work schedule, Dena serves as a sustaining advisor of The Junior League of Houston and is a member of the Heart of Texas Chapter of National Charity League. She is an avid runner and serves on the board of the Memorial Park Conservancy. “I am very proud and excited about Memorial Park Conservancy as we are working on a master plan for the park that will make this city treasure an even more enjoyable and accessible resource for Houstonians,” Dena says.
Dena is the mother of two daughters; the elder is a freshman at the University of Texas at Austin and the younger is a sophomore at Episcopal High School.
