Testimonials

Darlene made it happen! From the original market evaluation on through listing, multiple open houses and showings and eventually on through closing, Darlene was on top of it all. The many issues involving septic system failure with required design of a new system was a huge roadblock that she stayed on top of and was able to pilot us to closing in an efficient manner. I can't overstate how grateful I am for her personal oversight and for helping me navigate these new waters. Congrats to Darlene and many thanks for her advice and counsel. I am glad to recommend her to anyone needing real estate assistance. Ken Galle, Executor - Estate of Barbara K Galle

I submitted an A+ review of Darlene in an earlier email.

- Denise Vitagliano

I have purchased two homes and sold three with Darlene’s help and guidance. You can ask her any question. Most of them she can respond ASAP. If not, she will make calls and get the answer right away. I don’t know how I could have gotten through these moves without her. I especially appreciated her expertise while house hunting. She impartiality pointed out the positive and negative aspects of the homes I viewed. She often could spot features I would overlook. I don’t plan on moving again but if I need to I, Darlene will be the first person I will call.

Darlene was AMAZING!!! She pulled off such a difficult request and had 13 homes for us to look at over 3 days. She put serious effort and care in ever listing recommended and what not. Her knowledge of the area we were looking out was a HUGE asset. Once we decided on a home she worked so, so hard for us. We had difficult sellers and holy moly Darlene's candor and care were freaking awesome. I would ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND Darlene to friends & family as well as people I don't know. Her communication was top notch too.
