"We’ve known Darlene Brinkerhoff for 22 years and have always been impressed by her personal integrity and her professional dedication to her clients, so when it was time to sell our beloved home, we didn’t need to think twice about hiring her as our Realtor. A resident of this area, Darlene understands the market well and cares deeply about our neighborhood. She takes pride in serving her clients, always putting their needs and interests first, and she was with us every step of the way. She took the time to meet with each member of our family to listen to our questions and concerns. She advised us thoughtfully on how to prepare our home to sell. She recommended – and stayed in touch with - an excellent contractor to remodel our bathrooms. She even went shopping with us for new fixtures and hardware to update our home. We’re glad we trusted her keen insights and intuition. Even when one of us was out of town, she went out of her way to keep us informed and comfortable throughout the process. She made two of the most potentially stressful things – remodeling and selling one’s home – virtually painless, something we never could have imagined possible. Thanks to Darlene, our efforts paid off. Barely a week after listing our home, we sold it for significantly more than our asking price. She went on to help us buy our dream home soon after that in a transaction that was as memorable as it was smooth and professional. Darlene sets the gold standard for excellence in real estate. We look forward to working with her again and are pleased to recommend her to anyone thinking of selling or buying a home."
