Words cannot not express my gratitude and appreciation regarding Darlene

"I wanted to share my wonderful and blessed experience that I had with my phenomenal realtor Darlene Burnside. I reached out to Darlene through email about selling my home and she graciously accepted to assist. My lost to sell my property wasn’t the traditional and timing crucial to my sell. We started the process in February 2017 and finally closed in November 2017. Darlene marketed my property immediately and we received several offers. My bank (Chase) was horrible and we faced tons of challenges. However, Darlene was thorough, patience and never gave up and we sold this property with a success. I don’t know how many realtors that would have been this diligent, patience, prayerful, however, Darlene demonstrated all. Words cannot not express my gratitude and appreciation regarding Darlene. If I had the authority to honor her with the Realtor Award of 2017, I would definitely recommend/honor her because she not only performed her role she exceeded beyond her services/role.

My kudos can continue, however, I will end by stating that Darlene worked my sell with superior service, the equator system was a tool that tracked and transmitted proper documentation for my sell but her knowledge aided with the process and she was persistent. Darlene had the opportunity to walk away but she continued to have faith in selling my property. I will never forget Darlene, I am thankful for her and if I ever decide to move back to GA she has my business. I will definitely share my story and refer her to everyone because Darlene impeccable service should be known to all. She responded to my request with no hesitation and despite I never met her until closing, we connect as if we were family.

May God continue to bless Darlene, her family and career. Darlene your work ethics, honesty and hard work to focus on the customer is something I value. You will continue to rise Darlene!

Forever grateful,

Best Home Buying Experience! Prompt Response Time! Tech Savvy!

"We were introduced to Darlene by a family member. My wife and I relocated from MI to GA. A lot of our communication was done over the phone and through text messaging which we certainly appreciated with our busy schedules.

Darlene was very helpful. She was very prompt in returning calls or text messages. In fact, we would get a response in less than 15 minutes which made us feel like we were her only clients. She answered all of our questions and concerned and never tried to pressure us into buying. If she did not know the answer to our question she would find out and get back to us right away. She totally understood what we were looking for and delivered on our wants and needs with our brand new home.

If you are looking to purchase or sell your home, Darlene would be the person to work with.

Thank you Darlene for all of your help and patience with during the process of one of the biggest transaction our family has ever made.

Through Referrals - Solved My Real Estate Needs!

"Darlene and I have been friends for many years but when I needed to sell my home in Ontario and to buy in Nova Scotia she was there to help me. She found agents at both ends of the process for me and was there at the end of the phone every step of the way. If I had questions she found the answers. She even came to visit me after I moved to see how things went. I would totally recommend Darlene for any of your home selling or buying needs. Thank you Darlene. You made the process less stressful."

Smooth Closing and Great Attention To Detail

"So pleased to have had the privilege of working with such a great agent. When Darlene listed my condo everything was handled in a very professional manner. She made sure I was up to date on any showings, changes needed, etc. on a constant basis. The closing went smoothly thanks to her meticulous attention to details. Darlene is the Gold Standard for Realtors!"

Great Land Sale!

"Darlene helped me sell land. Though not in the most popular area, she still continued searching and located the perfect buyer looking for a heavily wooded lot to build. Negotiation was simple and quickly completed. During the final signing, she answered all my questions and made the process really easy and simple. Though locating a buyer took some time, Darlene was at my side keeping me updated, even if inquiries had not come in that entire week. Thanks so much for the kindness and wisdom. She will always represent me if I ever need assistance buying or selling property."

Great Advice!

"My brother and I contacted Darlene Burnside to help with the sale of our late Mother's home. After months of clearing out furniture and household goods, we were ready to sell. Darlene came in and gave us some really good sound advice on how to prepare the house for sale. Her suggestions and comments were very much on-point and after taking her advice, we finally placed the home on the market . After one week on the market, we had three prospects. We sold the home and closed in less than three weeks. We attribute this speed in closing the deal to Darlene's attention to detail, both regarding the home and its updates and doing the right kind of market research to find the right pricing. In addition, she seemed to have a wealth of contacts to pull in the right buyer for the property. Her determination and professionalism can't be matched. We would definitely recommend Darlene for anyone serious about making a home sale or buying a home. She knows the market, is honest, and committed to the end result."

First Time Homebuyers

"Darlene helped us greatly in finding our perfect first house.
Darlene understood our preferences and concerns as first time buyers and was able to accommodate to the likeness of the entire family. She showed us houses that matched our criteria and was patient and understanding until we found the right house.
As first time home buyers we were not aware of the market trends.
However Darlene helped us navigate through the good and the bad; all while being honest and sincere.
We are grateful to have had Darlene’s knowledge and expertise in finding our home."

Contract in Three Days!

"Darlene was very friendly, helpful, and attentive.
She had a contract on our home in 3 days. The buyer took "forever" with his end but Darlene stayed on top of the situation up to the end.
Darlene help us with the very frustrating parts of selling the home and waiting for the buyer end. She made the process as painless as possible.
I highly recommend Darlene, I would use her again if needed. Mr. & Mrs. North

Great Experience- Very Knowledgeable and Thorough

"Typically testimonials aren't my thing, but after working with Darlene Burnside I would be remiss if I did not rave about the outstanding experience I had with her in obtaining my first home! I was introduced to Darlene back in 2013 when I was ready but somewhat apprehensive about the home ownership process, and boy I couldn’t have received a better gift! Darlene has truly been a blessing to me. I had some obstacles during my search for a home and even wanted to give up at times, but Darlene would always tell me “ that’s ok, we’ll find something you love, it just wasn’t meant to be”. She was right by my side during the entire process, answering any questions I had and making sure I understood any confusing language. I love that she was NEVER pushy or tried to make me settle for a home I really didn’t like. She would always tell me make sure I get what I really want, but would give her input if she saw any major issues that could potentially cost me more money in the long run. I truly appreciate how responsive Darlene was and I am so thankful that she always put my needs and well-being first. I would like to say to Darlene that this has been a great experience because of you . You are more than my realtor, you are now my family! Thank you and God bless!"
