Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2014 in Ocean Isle Beach, NC.
Darren Bouley was professional and quick to respond to helping us list our property for sale. He presented a strong analysis of the current market and how our property could be sold within a reasonable time frame of under 60 days. He did a great job in helping us stage and price the home so that we were successful in numerous showings and he was always prompt with feedback information from the other realtors that brought their clients to review our property. He made our house looked impressive and competitive with the marketing photographs and websites that he chose for advertising. We were fortunate to be under contract within 40 days and Darren navigated us thru the the home inspection with professional assistance for repairs by a trusted contractor and resource people he depends on for prompt service.
I would highly make a positive reccommendation for Darren Bouley for any real estate listing or sales agent since he was very well informed and knowledgeable with the market area location he specializes.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Carolina Shores, NC.
Darren was the consummate professional during a grueling closing on a bank-owned property. He was willing to show me multiple options, help find vendors to quote repairs that the house needed, and was a pit bull about keeping the seller's team on track. I'd recommend him highly.
We began working with Darren very serendipitously in the Sunset Beach area and are so grateful we did. He is very knowledgable about properties in the area and the entire purchasing process; he recommended and facilitated our securing a lender, attorney, inspector, and anyone else we needed as part of the closing process. Our initial experience with Darren lasted only 5 days from meeting him, seeing properties, negotiating the right price and having our offer accepted. In those 5 days we felt like we were his only customer and his advice proved to be invaluable. In that short time we knew we could trust Darren to advocate in our best interest. We would wholeheartedly recommend Darren. On a personal note, Darren has a 'cagey' and 'witty' sense of humor and we found ourselves chuckling long after our meetings.
Darren is very responsive to your needs. He listens and takes the time to know your wants and desires as it relates to the home or condo you want to purchase. He points out those areas that don't meet your personal standards, yet gives you alternative solutions. He is engaging and straight forward. When you first meet him you are in a professional relationship, like you should be, however, by the end of your closing, you feel that you have made a new friend. I would highly recommend Darren Bouley as your next real estate professional. He is top notch in my book.
We cannot overstate how pleased we are with are new home. Nor can we adequately express how pleased we were with the knowledge and efforts of Darren Bouley, as he walked us through the home buying process. He was easily accessible and willing to meet with us at our convenience. We have completed twelve home purchases in the past 47 years and easiest and smoothest of them all because his knowledge of the process. We are pleased to recommend him to anyone considering a move or a relocation to this beautiful area of Brunswick County in Southeast North Carolina.
Darren is a patient agent who looks to do the best for his clients, His goal is to first find the location where the client will be happy then find the perfect house. This process can take between a few months to a couple of years. During this time Darren is quick to respond to questions and issues as they arise.
Darren also does a great job in highlighting other professionals that are needed. From Building inspectors to surveyors to attorneys, He is able to put a team together that allows an efficient process.
We highly recommend Darren for all of your real estate needs.

Darren Bouley is truly a professional. He is hardworking, very knowledgeable and diligent. Once we closed he went out of his way to make us welcome to the community. Over the years he has introduced us to some of our now best friends!
I would recommend Darren in a heartbeat!
Darren was our boots on the ground performing a multitude of tasks in regard to the home sale that we would have been unable to do being located in New York! He answered all our inquiries promptly and he was a gold mine of knowledge about the area that the home is located in NC. I would recommend Darren in an instant to anyone interested in Brunswick County, NC and the surrounding area both in NC and SC!
My husband and I contacted Darren when we began our search for property in the Brunswick area. From the very beginning, he was informative and helpful. He frequently sent us information on the area, patiently answered all our questions, and always responded to our calls. He is very knowledgeable of the area, listened to our needs, and made buying property an enjoyable experience. Darren has been like a friend from the beginning and we hope will remain a friend in the future.
Darren, is one of the most caring passoinate people we have ever met. By me just sending him an email he quickly connected and went over and beyond to assist us in our needs without pressure. Not ever meeting us in person and for him to go out of his way is very not heard of anymore.. I would recommend him for his passion and honestly to everyone that needs assistance in purchasing any property, his knowledge is outstanding. With the short time we were with him we consider him a friend for life.
