Reviews

I never thought that I'd be able to afford an architectural house on a great piece of land but thanks to Darren Winston, I now live in my dream home. Buying a new house is stressful and complicated and Darren is like an expert chess player who knows the many surprises that come up during the process of selling and buying a house (he did both for my wife and I). The end result is that in his hands, you end up exceeding your expectations all whilst receiving great care and attention. Firstly, Darren listens. I cannot stress how important this is-- Darren does not take you to view a house telling you what is great about it, he takes you to a house to hear what YOU think about it. He listens carefully and starts to get an idea of what things are important for you. After getting to know my wife and I, he'd take us to view a house that looked great in pictures but before even telling him, he'd start to say why it was not right for us. He was ALWAYS spot on. When selling our house, Darren found an excellent photographer, brought flowers and was on site to make sure the composition of each photograph was perfect. He sold our house within 3 days of being on the market-- above our asking price. Going through escrow had its challenges but Darren was always on top of each curve ball from banks, inspectors or the buyer and what could have ended in tears was handled with aplomb by Darren. He's one cool negotiator. When we found our new house, my heart began to soar because I could hardly believe that my wife and I could possibly live in our dream house. But finding your dream house and owning your dream house are a world apart. Suffice to say that Darren remained calm throughout the whole process and always guided us in the right direction. The chances of us getting that house under normal circumstance were small but Darren bridged that gap and became the captain of our team and through team work, we bought our dream house. It should be said that during the months we spent together, Darren would show up to morning meetings with coffee, croissants and a smile. He learned we liked wine and came to an evening meeting with a lovely bottle. When he found out that my wife was pregnant, he bought us great gifts (which we still use). If I'm painting an overly adoring picture of Darren, I apologize for coming on so strong but I honestly loved having him as our real estate agent and in fact would recommend him to ANYONE... no matter what budget, architectural taste, temperament, etc. Darren is that good.

We bought and sold our house with Darren. All I can say is he is the most caring wonderful Realtor I have ever met. Even when times were bad he stuck with us and went that extra mile... When I ever need a Realtor I will always go to him.

I picked Darren to be our real estate agent because he was the only one to promptly return my phone call AND set up a face-to-face coffee meeting, not just a "Ok, I'll send some listings your way". That pretty much sums up who he is as a person and a real estate agent: straight-forward, efficient, diligent, a great communicator and very importantly, easy-going. Our working relationship has been stress-free and I never felt like I was being pushed into anything. Darren not only accompanied me but offered his dead honest opinion on every property we saw (and we saw pretty much every 2 bedroom in West LA and surrounding areas). I really appreciated his patience, timeliness, respectfulness and knowledge about real estate. The fact that he really loves what he does shows every time I talk to him. We've successfully purchased a home. Thank you, Darren =)

We bought our first home with Darren, and could not be happier. After a very scary experience with our first real estate agent, we interviewed several replacements. Darren stood out as a consummate professional. Very attentive and truly driven to work with us to find the perfect home. He never pressured us to work outside of our comfort zone, always showing us homes that were in our budget. Darren also could not have been more patient with us. We probably dragged him to 75 homes. Our picky-ness and stubbornness never seemed to get on his nerves. Even when we found our current home, and it turned out to be a challenging short sale, he did not flinch. After a 4 month escrow, we now have the perfect first home. There would be no reason to ever use anyone else for a real estate transaction in the future. We are completely happy with how smoothly Darren handled everything for us. We've been recommending him to all of our friends as well.
