"Darlene was the perfect Realtor for us. My elderly mother needed to sell her Townhouse in Elmhurst and both of her sons lived in the Southeast. Darlene went above and beyond to communicate with us each step of the way. She also built a friendly relationship with my mother and reassured her throughout the process. Darlene was professional in her marketing and personal in her approach. I am glad we listed the property with her."     Dr. Ron Shade, Elmhurst

"Darlene is a great person to work with. She was very kind and easy to get along with. Darlene knows her real estate and was very flexible in her availability to meet. She asked us what we were looking for and was able to show us houses that were exactly what we wanted. She helped make the purchase of our first home very enjoyable."- Matt and Tina, Lombard
