A chat with Denise Chapline, Realtor

Posted on: November 27, 2017

What is your favorite on-the-go lunch choice?

The Chestnut Hill Market at the Fareway is the best choice around. I can select sushi, pizza, Mediterranean, Korean, or just a plain cheese steak for lunch and enjoy any of these in the beautiful outdoor terrace embellished with fountains and fabulous flowers. Quick, easy, delicious, and lovely.

What does your perfect weekend look like?

My perfect weekend would start out with a movie and dinner in Ambler on Friday night, a walk through Morris Arboretum during the day on Saturday, down time on Saturday night, and spending time with my kids and 3 grandchildren on Sunday. I also enjoy watching Penn State and Eagles football games.

Where is your favorite place to vacation?

We have friends with a house in Brigantine, NJ who we love to visit. Brigantine allows you to drive onto the beach so you can take all of your stuff with you in the car without dragging everything in your arms. It’s the best. We go down for long weekends and veg on the beach all day. We like to travel and have also been to Italy and Costa Rica. My favorite vacation spot to date has been South Africa, especially the game reserves.

What is your favorite dessert?

Bassett peanut butter ice cream. They sell it at Bredenbeck’s in Chestnut Hill which is right up the street from our office. Very dangerous!!

Tea or coffee?

Definitely coffee, 2-3 cups per day.

What is your favorite season of the year?

I like Summer best of all the seasons because I don’t have to wear shoes and I get to go to the shore.

What is your favorite part of being a realtor?

My favorite part of being a realtor is helping people reach their goals. So satisfying! Getting up each day and having something new to look forward to doing. No day is the same as the day before.

Where are you working today / where are your appointments?

All over! I spent the morning in West Philly, quick stop in Mt Airy, the afternoon in Port Richmond, and happy home to my fam in South Kensington.

What is your favorite on-the-go lunch choice?

Reading terminal all the way. So many great stalls to choose from! Some days a piece of cheese from Downtown Cheese and a baguette from Metropolitan OR Four Seasons Juice Bar (next to Market Blooms) and a pretzel from Miller’s twist.

Do you have a favorite new local restaurant or business that you are really excited about?

PlayArts at Front and Thompson opened in September and it is a wonderful business! It is a beautifully rehabbed old municipal pool building turned into a spectacular play space complete with sensory, art, music, and dance classes. From infants on up, it is a great addition to the neighborhood.

What is your favorite part of being a realtor?

Helping people take the next step in their lives. In my experience, physically moving is usually a manifestation of change in life, and it isn’t always young people starting fresh or growing into a “dream home”(though that is really fun!). Sometimes it’s because of death, divorce, retirement, or downsizing. A house can come to symbolize so many very personal things for people; a loved one that resided in it, a relationship that may not have worked out, a space that whole generations of a family have been raised in… It isn’t always an easy thing to do, but it is extremely rewarding. The purchase or sale of real estate is a very empowering experience.
