Darin is a lifelong native of California and has lived in San Diego for over 20 years. For the last 3 years he, his wife Jennifer, son Brady, and daughter Emmerson have enjoyed their new home in Encinitas. The family is in agreement that they live in the best city in the world.
After a highly successful career in the corporate sales world, Darin and Jennifer started their own real estate appraisal company in 2000 and grew their business by 400% over the next 8 years.
In 2010, Darin took his proven and impeccable sales record into the residential segment of the industry. Since then, his knowledge, expertise and commitment to customer service have enabled him to deliver top level results to his clients.
After quickly establishing himself as a pivotal player in the industry, Darin was awarded the prestigious honor of Rookie of the Year at a rapidly growing Keller Williams office in Del Mar, which had more than 200 agents at the time. Darin spent the past 5 years learning from the best and honing his skills as a top negotiator with a 100% close rate for his buyers and sellers.
Jennifer continues to operate the appraisal business and holds the highest residential appraiser credentials. The old adage, "Behind Every Great Man is a Better Woman" could not be more true. Jennifer is a tremendous resource to Darin and his clients and has often helped them save thousands of dollars on both the purchase and selling side of the transaction. Imagine having a valuation tool at your fingertips that is far more accurate than those available online or by agents. Having Jennifer in Darin's corner is a true game changer, a benefit he passes directly along to his clients.
2014 was Darin's breakout year. He once again hit all of his goals and shattered previous records. He independently grew his business by over 200% and was a Top 20 performer month after month. Darin ended the year ranked 17th in an office of 325 agents placing him in the top 5%! Many of the top producers at the office work in teams, but Darin accomplished this all himself. Based on this outstanding performance, he was heavily recruited by the world renowned and high-end global firm of Pacific Sotheby's International Realty. Darin decided to join their elite company and bring their prestigious branding and sophisticated sales resources to his growing clientele.
Darin understands that this is a business built on solid relationships, hard work, and integrity, all of which he clearly possesses. He realizes that people do business with people they like and trust, not because of the company they are with. With that said, Sotheby's offers an array of marketing tools and advertising vehicles that will further enhance Darin's listings. Some of these well-known publications include Dream Homes, Premier, San Diego Home and Gardens, Reside and the Robb Report, as well as the Union Tribune and Wall Street Journal weekly real estate section inserts. Utilizing these incredible resources will help to produce the most money for Darin's clients in the shortest amount of time.
Darin's passion for helping people extends well beyond his work life as he is highly involved in his children's sports and school programs and supports several charitable organizations through both direct philanthropic contributions and the gift of his time. In addition to his real estate career, Darin enjoys playing golf, surfing, snowboarding, working on his big yellow 1968 Bronco and traveling the world. Darin's biggest joys in life come from spending time at home with his wife of 15 years, two wonderful children and a pair of high energy Labradors.
Darin makes himself readily available 24/7, and is always willing to answer questions and assist buyers and sellers throughout all of San Diego County.
