The Team

Denise Dres

Where do you call home?

We have two dream homes; a beautiful home in Orange County and a home in Idyllwild with a gorgeous view. However, when people hear me talk they always ask “Are you from the Midwest?” I grew up in Chicago and that will always be home.

Kids or pets?

Maverick, a Shepard/Huskie mix that we rescued.  He is very regal, smart and loves to hike, especially in Idyllwild. He is 78lbs of pure snuggle dog.

Things you like to do?

Horseback riding – dressage and jumping, hiking, mountain biking, road trips, just being with my husband, spending time with family and the grand kids, and entertaining friends.

Favorite type of music?

Top Hits, Jazz, Rock & Roll

Favorite foods?

Italian anything, a good Rib eye steak, Chocolate…Chocolate…Chocolate

Favorite movies?

There are too many to mention, but they include Robert De Niro, Harrison Ford, Michael Cain, Meryl Streep, Sammual Jackson, Hilary Swank, Al Pacino, Helen Mirren, Tom Hanks, John Malkovich or Morgan Freeman.

What should we know about you?

My passion for this business started back in 1990 as Director of Marketing and Sales for a software company, at that time I was on the client side in the trenches at the trade shows. After the company was bought, I sought employment at an Exhibit House to utilize my management, sales and marketing and trade show experience to help other companies market through trade shows. I thought what could be more satisfying… and now I know. As an Owner working with the team of people we’ve assembled, brainstorming new ideas with clients and prospects of all different industries, and seeing the look on their faces when their vision becomes reality… it doesn’t get any better.
