After receiving an associate’s degree from the American Institute of Paralegal Studies, Teresa C. Dempsey became involved with lending services in real estate. Beginning her career as a new home sales consultant, she advanced to the role of a sales manager and the vice president of sales and marketing. She eventually developed and came to helm a successful sales team, which she led to their biggest year in the history of their business. Following the devastation of the economic recession, Ms. Dempsey and her husband established Dempsey Group Realty. She later earned a real estate broker’s license in order to handle home loans. Presently, she excels as a loan officer and president of BNI, Power Professionals of Queen Creek.
As a dedicated loan officer with expertise in residential lending, Ms. Dempsey maintains responsibility for increasing mortgage loan portfolios, completing mortgage loan processing and closing, and many other aspects on the lending process. She employs communication, follow-up, marketing and networking strategies in her business to provide personalized service to clients.

Outside of her professional life, Ms. Dempsey is the first vice president for the Desert Cancer Foundation of Arizona (DCFA).

Ms. Dempsey is honored to lead a successful group of business professionals in weekly networking. Their BNI chapter has generated over $2.3 million in closed business in the past year. She felt very strongly about positivity and in these difficult times, there were so many stressful things happening in so many different segments of society such as in health, socializing and economics, and it was easy for people to be discouraged with today’s events. Ms. Dempsey wants people to know that we have to make a strong effort to promote positivity and support one another because it was the only way to get through this together.
