Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in Brentwood, CA.
We highly recommend Julie and Darrell Hanson to all buyers and sellers out there. They were our Realtor(s) for selling our home and purchasing a new one home in early 2014. One of the great things about this team is there is always someone available when you need them! They were on top of things from start to finish.
Selling our home; their initial presentation to sell our home was detailed, accurate and extremely helpful in making us feel confident we were priced well for the market at that time. They were patient, understanding and supportive in regards to our wants/needs. They were not at any time “pushy sales people”. The pictures/video taken of our home was professional, beautifully done and fast! They sold our home quickly (2 times – due to financing issues of the buyer) and were able to get us exactly want we needed to purchase the home we wanted.
Purchasing our new home; Julie and Darrell took us to view many properties. They were patient and understanding when we wanted to see a property again and again. Julie said to us many times, “It’s process, it takes time”. When a new home was listed that met our criteria one of them was always available to take us the same day. That is what made the difference for us – getting there fast! If we had waited our dream home would not have been available!
Selling a home and buying a home at the same time, with the goal being to close within days of each other is stressful. In our case if anything went wrong with one transaction, both transactions could fall through. As with any real estate transaction, there were challenges; Julie and Darrell stepped up, protected our interests, and worked tirelessly into the night to ensure both transactions had a successful close. We cannot thank them enough! Darrell and Julie have integrity, commitment, and great hearts.
We recommended Julie and Darrell Hanson if you are buying or selling. It truly is a process and having Realtor(s) on your side makes all the difference in the world!
If realtors were reviewed on a 1 to 10 number system, Darrell Hanson would get a 12 from us!
My husband and I decided to sell our last house and purchase a new home because we wanted to put our child in a better school district. As a mother, my child's education is my first concern. I researched the school districts on the internet. I read hundreds of reviews, city ratings, community ratings, test scores, etc. I went on several walkthroughs. I cut our search down to two different school districts in two different cities.
My husband and I started working with realtors to find a home near the schools we wanted our child to attend. We worked with three different realtors before we met Darrell.
The day we met Darrell Hanson we knew we had found the realtor that was going to help us find our new home. Darrell was able to answer ALL of my questions on the local school district. He told us about the different schools in the area, which ones were better than others. He told us about the sports that were offered in the different age groups. He told us about extra kid activities that were offered by the community. Plus, he had kids that attended the schools!! He is also a baseball coach for one of the local high schools!! He was able to educate us on the schools, community, and everything they had to offer our child. To be honest, the previous realtors were barely able to tell me the names of the schools. Finding Darrell felt almost like finding gold to my husband and I.
Darrell helped us find a home near the schools we selected! He lead us through the purchasing process. He told us to call him at anytime with any questions, and we did! He made himself available every single time! I could not have been more happy with Darrell Hanson's work ethic, professional demeanor, mensch. He even provided his contacts for our home & pest inspection. He showed up at our move in day and brought pizza & soda pop!! When we told him we were having problems getting our chemicals for our pool right, he put us in contact with his pool guy, who made our pool crystal clear!!
We are going to recommend Darrell Hanson to friends and family!! If anyone reading this review is looking for a realtor in the Contra Costa or Alameda counties, Darrell Hanson is by far one of the BEST!!!
Helped me rent a Single Family home in Discovery Bay, CA.
Re: Darrell and Julie Hanson - Intero Real Estate:
Talk about Professional!
Living out of state has made it a bigger challenge to move back home to California.
Several months ago (and on many other occasions), we visited California to search for a home. While we were there the last time, literally that week, the market took off.
With the California market once again on the upswing, our needs were not given priority.
On several trips out to search for a home, every agent we contacted did not take us seriously, because we'd decided to rent first, to get a feel for the area.
We were snubbed, laughed at, ignored, treated with derision ... I could go on, but that is being negative.
We were lucky to find Darrell and Julie. They treated us from day one like the most important client, even though the commission would be miniscule compared to a sale in our area.
I say our area because they took our information, emailed us many properties to sort through and were gracious enough to invest some time with us on our last trip out to help us find the perfect home in the perfect location.
We've bought many properties in our life's travels and we will buy more. Guess who will reap the commission when we purchase our next home? Darrell and Julie Hanson.
We've already recommended them to several acquaintances. You cannot do better than Darrell and Julie.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Discovery Bay, CA.
My wife and I had been looking for a home in the Discovery Bay/Brentwood area for about six weeks prior to finding Darrell and Julie. In those six weeks, we worked with two other realtors, neither of whom served our interests, nor had the knowledge, patience, or responsiveness of Darrell and Julie.
In the end, we decided to make an offer on a short sale. Darrell and Julie helped us navigate through the short sale's incredibly tedious and arduous process, ultimately resulting in our purchase of an amazing home.
Working with Darrell and Julie couldn't have been any better.
I have had the opportunity to work with both Darrell and Julie Hanson throughout the past six years and my experiences with them have been outstanding. They are not only friendly and professional; Darrell and Julie are on top of the real estate process.
As a landlord to a rental property, I am comforted to know that the Hanson Team will provide excellent service and professionalism when the time comes for my wife and I to find new renters for our rental property. I highly recommend the Hanson Team.
I first meet Julie about 5 years ago when I was looking for a rental in Brentwood. Upon my first phone call to her, we had went out that same day to look at a few properties. It ended up that I was living in one of those houses that next month. When it came time for us to purchase, I definately wanted to work with Julie again. This is when I meet Darrell. After looking at probably 20-30 houses, we are now happily living in Discovery Bay. Throughout the entire process, they showed great patience with me as I am very picky at what I wanted. It was actually Darrell's recommendation to look in Discovery Bay and we just love it out here. I would definitely recommend Darrell and Julie to any of my friends or family.
Professional , friendly , right to the point, very active, super patient with clients, clear explanations of all the confusions you might have.
I had a very wonderful experience(buying my first house) with Darrel and Julie. I will definatley choose them again to help me to find my second house pretty soon.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Brentwood, CA.
They are very easy to communicate with and did their best to understand who I am & what I was looking for in a house/property. Darrell is very patient even when someone is sending mixed signals. I especially appreciated how thorough he was when acessing a properties pro's & con's !
