Darlene feels it is a privilege and an honor when a client chooses her to be their representative.
When people think of a “house” they think of siding, nails, roof, walkways, colonials, cape cods etc. This is a visual situation. However, when people are selling their “home” this is an emotional situation for many memories have been made along the way. When someone is buying a home they are thinking on an emotional level as well.
The whole process is also a “financial” decision for a home is typically one of the largest investments most people make.
This is why Darlene takes her career so very seriously.
