Darlene, I am writing to thank you for your excellent service as my buyer broker for my recent purchase of a house. From the beginning of this relationship, through the closing, and after, your responsiveness, professionalism, and courtesies were beyond my expectations. During the two decades that I have known you, I have been impressed by your intelligence, your creativity and your drive. Now, after this experience, I have an even greater appreciation for your abilities. I remember remarking to you how pleased I was with the progression of the contract phases prior to closing and you modestly responded that half of your job was showing up on time and doing what you said you would do. That may be so, but you and your able assistant delivered on the other half as well. I now understand how you have become one of the top producing real estate agents in Santa Fe. I also understand how your friends become clients and how your clients become friends. I wish you the best of luck and continued success as you proceed on this career.

The relocation process and the search for a new house can be one of the most stressful endeavors a family or individual can face. Darlene’s comprehensive grasp of the Santa Fe market makes the selection process smooth and easy. As a retired attorney, I especially appreciated her professional and organized approach to achieve the client’s requirements and dreams. All Emails and phone messages are returned promptly, appointments are punctual and best of all she is a good listener. Darlene’s knowledge of the construction industry, local contractors, architects and designers further “smoothed out” the transition. When everything was said and done, I was glad that I had Darlene on my side.

Darlene, I would like to take a moment to express our sincere appreciation for the recently completed transactions on the successful closing of both the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our current home. As a result of your efforts, we were able to complete both within 3 days of each other. Over the course of many years, (as a corporate gypsy) we have experienced the purchase and sale of numerous homes from east coast to west coast and in between. Your effort, thoroughness and follow through, from listing to closing were exemplary. You and your team demonstrated the highest level of professionalism!! Thanks, again.
