What Our Clients Say
"Darrell helped my brothers and I sell our family home. He was professional, understanding and gave us great advice in a tricky situation. I will always be grateful to him for working so hard for us under difficult circumstances. In the end, things couldn't have worked out better for us. Much appreciation to Darrell, a kind and skilled realtor!"
"Darrell's marketing skills are superb. He was very helpful and thoughtful in his advice and guidance through the deal making and closing thicket. He listens to you. There is no better agent to have on your side."
"Darrell was the consummate professional, going well beyond our expectations. We sold our house from afar, as we had already moved. Darrell worked with contractors to ensure our upgrades were done appropriately. He worked with the city to ensure permits were obtained. He talked with us in the evenings and on the weekends. He made sure we did not sell too early, and we ended up getting a much better offer. He explained the process in detail, and we were comfortable with his advice every step of the way."
"We bought our house using Darrell and used his services again 4 years later when we sold our house. We moved out of state and Darrell did EVERYTHING for us. From recommending us to a stagger, our open house, taking care of the termite inspection, an electrcian to do some work, heck he even trimmed up some of the bushes himself to make the curb appeal that much nicer. He had our house listed and sold in under 2 weeks. We have already recommended Darrell to a few friends who are interested in buying homes in the SGV. If I were still in the area We would be using Darrell to buy our new home. I couldn't recommend him enough. He was such a pleasure to work with."
"I have had the pleasure of working with Darrell as my agent both for personal property and when my company did a 1031 exchange. I relied heavily on his knowledge and expertise and appreciated his patience with all parties involved in each transaction. Darrell has made the process of every sale and or exchange a pleasant one and I am exceeding grateful to have found someone in the real estate industry with his level of integrity and work ethic. Thank you, Darrell."
"We interviewed several real estate agents prior to putting our home on the market, and Darrell's professionalism, eye for detail, and good humor (always vital during a home sale or purchase) easily won us over. His advice on preparing the house for sale, setting the right market price, and then being there to manage everything on the ground as we completed our move to the United Kingdoms was invaluable. I can't imagine this being an easier process, thanks to Darrell."
"We have worked with Darrell Done on several projects and just recently completed a purchase transaction with him. Darrell's knowledge and expertise is second to none. Darrell is well informed about property valuations, recent comparable transactions and local market conditions. Darrell and his transaction team are extremely efficient and responsive managing the purchase and sale transaction process from offer, negotiation and inspections all the way through closing. His fabulous reputation is well earned and perhaps even understated. Darrell Done is among the best of the best in his industry."
"Darrell Done was an absolute pleasure to work with when my husband and I were selling our home! Besides being a consummate professional, he is so warm and personable and completely put our minds at ease during the entire process. His knowledge and experience in the real estate industry is incredible and this allowed us to trust him completely to sell our home for top dollar. It sold in just a few days, with multiple offers, and well over asking price! Each and every step was seamless, from the marketing, open houses and private showings, all the way through to the close of escrow. I highly recommend Darrell for all of your real estate needs! He is the very best!!"
