      Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $800K in Cambrian Park, San Jose, CA.
      I usually do not write reviews. However, If I do not write about Darren, I'm doing an injustice to myself and others. Darren helped me in buying my first house. He is very knowledgeable of the markets, construction, negotiation and most of all understood our needs as the buyer. Buying home in this seller's market is extremely difficult due to low inventory causing multiple offers. Darren never pushed me to go beyond my limit or what the house was really worth. I was willing to offer more than Darren recommended on two other homes and he shared with me the reasons it was not a good purchase. He was right! I was looking for a house that needed some work to be done and found out investors were looking for the same thing. Darren never pushed me to offer a higher price than I was willing to go. I offered on several homes lower than Darren recommended and lost every time. All he used to say was "I will find you the right property". and we found one that was perfect and Darren was able to negotiate against multiple offers and win without going over what we were willing to pay. I can certainly say that I got the best deal for my house because of Darren's negotiating skills, I have the emails to prove it. Darren was meticulous on pointing out every detail of the property that would need repairs. I really admire the patience that he has as we asked lots of questions being first time buyers. During the closing process we were kept informed on timelines and commitments. One month after closing the property, Darren is still helping me with questions and referrals. commitment, dedication to his work, honesty and integrity are best qualities you will find in him. Without any doubt, I'll go to Darren for all of my real estate needs.

      Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 in Scotts Valley, CA.
      I've used Darren twice, and referred multiple people to him. He's always done a great job.

      Darren is an excellent realtor, and makes the selling and buying process seem like a breeze. He takes the stress out of the process.

      Darren is also one of very few realtors that really understand how to do a short sale. It's far from a simple process, and Darren has the patience and professional know-how to successfully close a short sale.  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Cambrian Park, San Jose, CA.
      We (My wife and I) were able to find a home in 3 weeks at a good price with the help of Darren. Darren was able to substantially reduce the purchase price during the inspection period with his strong negotiation skills.

      Darren helped us to close on time by working closely with the lender and the listing agent by providing all the necessary documents in advance.

      We were looking for either a completely updated house or which needs a good amount of TLC.So we wanted a realtor who has some construction knowledge as well and we could not have asked for more, a relator with general contractor license. So whenever we were seeing a house it felt like we have a good contractor with us to point out even the minor issues.

      Our first two offers were not accepted, If we would have accepted Darren’s recommendation we would have got the first house but we were low balling since we were just starting the house hunt. Although Darren knew this he did not even hesitate to put in an offer with a low offer price.

      After giving us the listing info, he will proceed only if we were comfortable with the house and price and never pushed us into giving an offer. He maintained a true professional attitude throughout the home purchasing process and he is still following up with tenants and the seller to ensure a smooth transition, after closing service shows his commitment towards the service that he provides. Darren has definitely earned my trust gratitude and my recommendation to others for his knowledge of the real estate market, negotiation skills and his general contractor perspective.

      We will hire only Darren for all our future real estate needs
