I can't recommend Darren enough to anyone looking for a home. I wasn't looking for a very big property and had a very tight budget but from the moment I met him he went out of his way to make me feel like his most important client. He was very patient.... answering all of my questions... getting back to me quickly... and took me to an endless number of properties hoping to find me the perfect place. Once we found it and started negotiations I always felt that he was on my side... not just looking to make a commission. I couldn't be happier. He also went above and beyond to help me find the right people to turn my new house into a home. As he said from the beginning.... he's my realtor for life.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $675K in Costa Mesa, CA.

Darren was the agent on a short sale property we purchased and turned out to be such a smooth transaction that we used Darren to sell another property we owned in the same complex which sold within a week. We used Darren again on another purchase which again was successful and currently our best income property. We recently decided to sell some income property in Orange County and even though Darren lives in San Diego he has representatives throughout So. Cal. and he sold our Orange County property in 5 days. We are currently in escrow on a replacement property which should close in another week or so. Darren has the perfect temperment for this business and we highly recommend him to everyone!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in Bay Ho, San Diego, CA.

This was the first time I ever sold a house. Darren was responsive even to the smallest concern or question I had. He is personable and professional. We interviewed several agents before deciding on Darren. Unlike the other agents he did not depend fluff; he really knew his stuff. He provided us with hard data about his recent sales to back up his claims. He was the best agent for selling our home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in Bay Ho, San Diego, CA.

From the initial contact to the close of a home that had what we wanted was less than 30 days. Darren Iba was able to use his knowledge of the market, area, and individuals to help us negotiate easily. He was able to explain what needed to be done and was available for questions. I think all calls or texts were returned within 2 hours and usually about 10-15 minutes. I would recommend this realtor and indeed have done so already.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $525K in Northwest, Chula Vista, CA.

Another recent successful sale working with Darren Iba!!! I have worked with Darren 8 years both selling my properties and purchasing. I recommend him to family and friends because I know they will be treated with the same professionalism and respect which he has always shown me. This most recent sale which closed first week of March was especially difficult due to the circumstances of the buyer, without going into the details Darren guided both the first time very timid buyer and helped me be patient with this buyer and the result was an excellent purchase and sale. Darren has excellent contacts in the financing world who work so well with him because they know he will do an excellent job every time. So wonderful of Darren to also share his knowledge of the real estate market with all of his clients. I won't work with another agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $400K in Santee, CA.

I highly recommend Darren Iba. He presented his marketing strategy and I thought it was exccellent. His suggestion for a listing price was right on the money. In the end, we received far more for our property than I imagined possible. Furthermore, we had some exciting negotiations with the buyers. Darren advised me honestly and we got what we wanted. I am so pleased. The stress of selling a property was something that I truly did not want to face. That is why I was so surprised with how easy it was, thanks to Darren and his team!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Allied Gardens, San Diego, CA.

Darren Iba is the best Real Estate Agent we have every worked with. We live out of town and the house we sold needed a lot of work to get to the point to sell, Darren assisted us in finding the right people to fix it up in a timely fashion.

This guy handled everything for us to eliminate additional trips to San Diego, I am very impressed with his ethics and commitment to selling our house.

I encourage anyone that is in the need of a Real Estate Agent to consider Darren Iba.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2011 in La Mesa, CA.

I had nothing but a pleasant, non-stressful experience from the first phone call to the last documents signed when I worked with Darren. He took care of everything and always made sure I knew EXACTLY what was going on. A short-sale is difficult, but Darren powered through it and made it look effortless. Even though we had a couple buyers back out at inopportune times, which made us start over, and the bank was relentlessly uncooperative, Darren was calm and kept pressing forward without slowing down. He didn't hide anything or keep things from me that he thought I might not understand. He told me everything that was going on and explained anything I asked. Even though he had other projects going that were far less work and would be much more profitable, he treated me like his number one client. I truly don't believe my house would have sold without Darren and his negotiating skills. Darren will be the ONLY person I will ever hire again.

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Black Mountain Ranch, San Diego, CA.

Darren was very professional and a pleasure to work with. Even though the nature of our sales transaction was stressful, he kept us updated throughout the process. I would definitely recommend Darren to anyone looking to sell their home. He will get the job done!
