"Darcy impressed us from the first phone contact. Her professionalism and customer focused styles were evident all the way through escrow…care and detail were unbelievable…she exceeded my expectations…I will recommend Darcy to anyone who is buying or selling in the area."
-A. O’Brien Silveira
"The painting, staging, and other actions you recommended were so important in getting the price what we did…To me and to everyone with whom I shared my experience, including other realtors, the interest and offers you generated were extraordinary. I think your integrity and reputation in the realtor community played no small part in these results. I know that I certainly appreciate working with someone whose honesty and counsel I can rely on, especially in one of the biggest financial transactions of my life."
"I want to thank you so much for your superior professional help…Your knowledge and experience in real estate marketing, home construction and in general real estate procedures and practices made the experience of selling my parent’s home a pleasant, educational and profitable one…and most importantly you were always available whenever we needed you"
-M. Gulley Pacheco
"Darcy is one of the best real estate agents I have ever worked with – this was the third transaction we did with her and every time she has exceeded our expectations…She was so helpful in staging and attending to every detail – she is amazing! I also value the outstanding reputation Darcy has in the marketplace – she is respected by other agents, which has big value for sellers – they call her back and produce clients."
"Her personal guidance and attention to detail made the process seem painless…Darcy maintained an unflagging cheerfulness tempered by her realistic approach to home sales"
"…She was very thorough and straightforward as we walked through the house with her assessment of what my family should consider when preparing the house to be listed for sale. I was extremely impressed with her professional, yet caring nature, and her desire to take on the challenge…As we completed the sales process, Darcy was never ending in her pursuit of excellence and assistance until the last bit of work was completed. I cannot express my thanks enough to her and know that from the initial referral, it was truly a blessing to have had the opportunity to work with Darcy. I hope that future clients looking for a well-qualified agent with integrity will come to know Darcy as I have."
"In all of my dealings with Darcy, she has been punctual, thorough, pleasant and patient. ..extremely knowledgeable…and I have never felt that she just wants to make a sale so she can collect her commission."
"At each step of this process you have been there to provide both a profound professional understanding of the decisions I have faced as well as thoughtful guidance as to what the impact of those decisions might be on my life and the sale of my home. At the same time you have carefully listened to my goals, desires, concerns, and needs and worked with me to address each and every one. Obviously your many years of experience working in the Oakland real estate market are a tremendous asset to your clients, but I believe that there is much more to what you offer than just experience. The combination of your professionalism, your ethics, and your gracious and thoughtful personal commitment to providing exemplary services has resulted in an experience for me which simply could not have been better."
