Denise M. Lewis, Broker/Owner

A Message from our Broker

Let me use this opportunity to introduce our brokerage and provide insight to our mission and vision. Employing a Front Porch approach, transparency in operations, we choose to build a community of Back-Yard Friends with our clients, affiliates, local businesses and others we meet along the way.  As a first effort in transparency, I share with you our mission and vision below. I look forward to our journey.

Our Mission & Vision

Brook-Owen Real Estate is a brokerage and team of professionals who are innovative and proactive, keeping up with the new trends in the ever changing and evolving real estate market. Through continued training, education with integrity, creativity and compassion, we will continue to pour into our clients and our community to bring unity, build relationships and give back.

In keeping in line with our vision, Brook-Owen Real Estate will continue to evaluate the real estate market as well as individual client needs by maximizing training and education and adjusting to real estate trends, while maintaining our deep rooted core values.

We want our family of agents and employees to join forces with Main Street and local business, to bring awareness and excitement to the area. When we pour into our community, we all reap the benefits.

We want to use our expertise and experience to educate and engage people in unique ways. We want to be the GO-TO Brokerage.

Not only are we made in Carroll County, we have been groomed and primed by Carroll County values and traditions… and we want to give back. They say it takes a village, this is no different. We are called to participate and participate we will.

Meet the team!
