Darlene Street is an Outstanding Realtor! She is conscientious, persistent and easy to work with in every way. We appreciate her expertise, complete knowledge of all Santa Fe properties and her untiring energy in helping us find the right home for our family. She is absolutely "The Best"!
Darlene worked diligently to help us find what we thought was the perfect home at a great price we could afford.
She expertly conducted the negotiations. During the due diligence process, thank God, Darlene uncovered an issue even the inspectors missed. The result was the deal fell through.
Even though we didn't get that house, next time we come to Sanat Fe we will definitely work with Darlene to locate a better home. Her inquisitiveness and persistence saved us from a very bad experience.
Darlene is amazing. She is a strong negotiator and knows the market well. We purchased a home in Santa Fe over 5 years ago and although we currently live out of state and rent the property, Darlene is always responsive when we need assistance and guidance.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Santa Fe, NM.
We contacted Darlene in 2012 while on an assignment abroad anticipating a return to the States. Having come up w/ a list of about 40 properties to look at, Darlene helped facilitate all of the logistics for my wife to visit Santa Fe and view those properties. After spending 3 days w/ Darlene, we made an offer on 2 homes; one of which that was accepted after some negotiation. Not being from NM, our knowledge of service providers was fairly limited and Darlene was and has been our go-to person to get recommendations. This is just a small example of how helpful she was and continues to be.
Darlene is the most professional Real Estate Broker I have ever worked with. Her knowledge vast, her expertise unmatched, and her commitment to finding you the perfect place for YOU is amazing. She gets it; she will be frank and honest and tell you like it is. Most importantly, she is on your team, supporting and fighting for you with finess and grace. You may find many other agents in Santa Fe, but you will find none better than Darlene (and her team.) She is number 1 in Santa Fe for a reason - actually a whole lot of reasons...
Showed home in 2012 in Pojoaque, Santa Fe, NM 87506.
Up front I will say that I have never met her. But I met her partner at a house showing and was very impressed. I discussed with her the problem of low ball appraisals, and was surprised by the intelligence and aggressiveness of the well planned steps they take to protect the interests of their clients.
I'd suggest that buyers and sellers use them if you don't want a nasty surprise at the closing. If ever refinance again, I may ask their advice.
