"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.

Being a single woman, she helped me look for not only what I wanted but what I needed—keeping my safety and needs in mind. I ended up purchasing my first townhome in an excellent safe location where I could walk my dogs late at night if I wanted to and feel safe. When it was time to expand and work on the next chapter of my life, I knew it was Darlene I wanted to work with again. So I called her up and she put my townhouse on the market. It sold in 4 days way above asking price!! This woman is amazing. Not only is she amazing, but she has dignity. She doesn’t play dirty like some other realtors do. She’s by the book, never crosses the line, and never pushes her clients to go beyond what they are comfortable with. She takes the time to get to know her clients to really see what it is they want and need and finds them the perfect home because she honestly and truly cares. She is genuine and good hearted, and her background in teaching helps in making sure you understand everything. After the townhouse sold, she then took me on my search to purchase my new home now. It was the smoothest transaction and we closed FAST. Now I will soon be moving into my beautiful new home and starting a family soon. I have grown so much since I’ve known Darlene, and she has helped me transition and grow into a future and a home that I am so excited about. I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor. That’s why I went back! And I know if I ever purchase or sell again it’s her I’m going to. She’s the best of the best—both as a realtor and as a person."
