On Patrol...

As I cruise up the coast of Rhode Island on a boat, I can appreciate the perspective this opportuity provides and the gorgeous real estate we have in Narragansett and the surrounding towns. Normally this would signal to me a plethora of real estate opportunites - if that were what I was looking for. But I am not cruising the Bay to shore up business. I am on Patrol.

Since 2008 I have been volunteering with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary; as part of its boat crew patrol I help keep watch over Rhode Island waters for boats in distress. It's a way to get involved with an organization whose sole purpose is to do good. You get to put on a uniform. You get to help people.

It's a huge satisfaction just knowing that I could do something that could potentially save a life. My experience as a leader in South County real estate has prepared me for the fast pace of the Coast Guard.

Everything I've learned in the business world, I've used to help the Auxiliary- As a former Staff Officer I kept members on the same page and organized events. Volunteering with the Coast Guard makes me a little more confident, and it shows my contribution to my community.

And when it comes to my real estate business, my Coast Guard experience helps me stand out to my clients, not to mention the awesome metaphore that Denelle Realtors is "like the Coast Guard." To find out how you may have to watch one of our videos on the subject.

I will be volunteering at the annual Johnny Cake Festival in West Kingston Saturday and Sunday, October 19th and 20th from 10-5 each day on behalf of the RI Breast Cancer Coalition. The Festival has chosen the RI Breast Cancer Coalition as one of the charities they will be supporting through the sale of johnny cakes over the two day event We are so pleased to be the recipient of these donations and to be able to spread the word about what the RI Breast Cancer Coalition does for men and women in Rhode Island who have been affected by this disease.

I am a 21 year survivor of the disease and have been involved with the organization for many years. The RI Breast Cancer Coalition is an all volunteer organization and a 501c3 non-profit. RIBCC organized in 1992 and has provided resources, education and support to over 20K women and men since. They provide prescription assistance, wigs, prostheses, lymphedema sleeves, and advocate for women on issues like employment, finances, treatment costs. Our mission is to ensure that every woman in RI has access to quality health care, most especially mammography screening and treatment if cancer is diagnosed regardless of her ability to pay. Visit our web site for more information about the organization.

Stop by the festival and say hello and support your community!

A note from the Founder

A Letter to the Agents of Denelle: We are all so lucky to live in South County and are able to earn a living by being of service to our friends and neighbors. The scarecrows, home tours and farmers' markets all add so much to our quality of life. We are all able to walk our dogs on the beach and enjoy friendships with our fellow neighbors. What a beautiful time of year to enjoy a fall sail on the bay or some apple picking. It makes us all realize how much our wonderful state has to offer. So keep up the great work and let's all be grateful for all that we have... Ron Denelle

Yesterday I was lucky enough to attended the Ribbon-Cutting ceremony of the Anna Fascitelli Fitness and Wellness Center at the University of Rhode Island. My intention today was to write a long winded blog about what the new Fitness and Wellness Center is and will mean to the Students of URI but no one said it better than Paul Knott '14 from the URI Student Senate. I am personally proud to be a 1987 Graduate of this great University. Enjoy the video below.

Also Speaking were Thomas R. Dougan, VP for Student Affairs

Michael Fascitelli '78 -

And Peter Miniati, III '85 Treasurer and VP and Trust Officer for the Washington Trust Company

So Much To Do...

So here we are in beautiful South County in the middle of summer and the fun doesn't stop. Maybe you were at The Balloon Festival last week end at URI, or you may be limbering up for The Blessing of The Fleet Run on Friday next. This is the start of a weekend of entertainment and activities in Narragansett & surrounds.
Did I mention the amazing beaches, miles of golden sands, beaches where you can surf in Matunuck, soak up the sun in South Kingstown or stroll to local restaurants in Narragansett. There are about six weeks to Labor Day so get down here & get out and enjoy South County in the sun.

Imagine having a flexible career with $100K earning potential that you can train for and get into in only a matter of months. Real estate agents enjoy these benefits and more. No wonder becoming a real estate agent is such a popular choice with career changers.

Real estate agents help people with buying, selling, or leasing homes, buildings, and land. Residential real estate agents specialize in working with homeowners, while commercial real estate agents deal with office space and buildings.

Agents help their clients set selling prices, make offers, and negotiate terms. Real estate agents are paid a fee which is usually a percentage of the sale price of each transaction. The more transactions the more money!

Real estate agents receive satisfaction from finding the perfect new home for their clients, or helping owners sell a home with little hassle and for a great price. If you love people and are rewarded by helping them, you have discovered a career that will allow you to turn your passion into a real way to make a living.

If you like to socialize, working as a real estate agent may not feel like real "work" to you. Much of the career involves meeting people, chatting, and building relationships. Real estate is not a 9-5 job. You'll have the flexibility to set a work schedule that works for you.

You can become a real estate agent right now. You don't need a college degree to buy and sell real estate, and the training for your license is readily available.

There has never been a better time to become a real estate agent. There is always money to be made in real estate, whether the real estate market is hot, cold, or steady. With rising household incomes, low interest rates, and affluent baby boomers looking for an alternative to the stock market, the real estate market experienced unprecedented growth in the past few years. The market is now shifting to a more balanced one, so people who have been waiting to buy are now ready to reenter the market.

A career with Denelle Realtors involves a supportive atmosphere where Team Work is emphasized and integrity is required.

Bypass the traffic

Just viewed a great home with buyers on Indian lake in South County. Wow is all I can say, what a choice you can drive ten minutes to the great beaches in Narragansett, South Kingstown or go a little further. OR you can walk 5 minutes to your own lake.
With the temperature at 95 by 10am it's the perfect way of avoiding the traffic on I95 to get to South County because you are already here. Ice cream is on me!!

The Striper Bass are out there! Even in the rain...

I've been catching small striper bass in Narrow River which lies between Narraganset and South Kinstown. I usually fish with a friend or my son pictured here on Father's Day with a 24 inch striper we pulled in just off the seawall in the Pier. We also caught a small but strong bluefish and both are safely back in the Ocean. Of course you all know we have had a serious amount of rain lately. I thought it would be wise to run the engine and charge the battery so the bilge pump would keep going. I took the boat out of the river mouth and buzzed along the beach on a glorious break in the weather. My experience has been that the fishing is usually not that good after heavy rains. I have no statistics to back this up of course but it has been my experience over the years. But what the heck, why not drop a line in the water while I charge the battery right? I was trolling an umbrella rig along the seawall relaxing and enjoying the view not really expecting anything to happen. It is quite peaceful out there watching the hustle and bustle of the seawall activity from that perspective. All of a sudden I heard the familiar (or not that familiar) clicking noise of the reel and heard the line being peeled away. I thought "oh no the rig has snagged the bottom" so I put the boat in neutral and grabbed the rod from the rod holder. I quickly realized it was not the bottom because of the bouncing of the rod. I thought maybe it was several small fish (bass or blues) which does happen periodically with the umbrella rigs. Or maybe? Maybe it was a big striper...which immediately got my heart pumping faster. It was at this moment I realized I was alone and neglected to prepare the net. If the event had been filmed it would have made for a good comedy. After some time I got the fish to the side of the boat. I held it there with one hand and unbungied the net from the side of the boat and then tried to extend the handle. I was eventually successful (as you can see) but was laughing at myself while nervously trying not to lose the fish. I filet the 36 inch striper and gave it to friends and family who reported that it was a delicious fish. Some were lucky enough to cook it only an hour after I pulled it out of the water. This is a nice way to get your seafood...

Culture and Background...

Background & Culture 

          Ronald Denelle founded R. D. Denelle & Company in 1968. Prior to that year Ron attended R.I. public schools, served in the 3rd Infantry, (Presidential Honor Guard), at Arlington Cemetery in V.A., and the White House under President Eisenhower. He Graduated U.R.I. in 1960 thanks to the G.I. bill, and worked for U.S. Steel Corporation in sales management for eight years in Pittsburgh, Boston and Cleveland. He founded our firm in the summer of 1968 after bringing his family home to South County from Cleveland, Ohio.  

          As a matter of background and culture, R.D. Denelle & Company, Inc. Realtors is much like the U.S. Coast Guard.  From his background as a former Presidential Honor Guard, to his work with U.S. Steel, Ron Denelle has instilled a sense of responsibility and readiness that truly links DENELLE to the United States Coast Guard’s motto “Semper Paratus,” which means Always Ready 

          Since 1968, Ron has insured that “readiness to real estate” is rooted in having limited specialized crew on board, representing limited interests. “Like” the Coast Guard we guide our clients safely between the buoys for smooth and trouble free sailing/transactions.
