"We met Darlene a few years back while naively scouring Open Houses to decide whether we were ready to take the plunge into home ownership. We were immediately impressed with her knowledge and expertise. She took us under her wing and educated us on where the right place would be to look for a home, what qualities make for good resale value, where to get the best bang for our buck! She made a really scary decision and time in our lives easy because we felt like we were working with someone who truly cared about us and had our best interests at heart. Our dog even adored her. She helped our little family of 3 (which of course included our four-legged son) find the absolutely perfect house. She was able to get us a price we were comfortable with and helped us navigate the complex world of escrows, mortgages, home inspection, and even more terms that we had absolutely no clue what they meant. She worked around our schedule and made it completely convenient for us eliminating a lot of stress. This house she helped us find and purchase has now become a home we cherish where our little family of 3 has expanded. Darlene is a wonderful, knowledgeable agent who brings something extremely special to the entire home ownership process. We were truly blessed to have worked with her."
