"I highly recommend Darbi if you are looking to buy or sell a home. She was very patient showing us homes last year when we were looking. When it came time to sell my old home, she gave us a few recommendations on what to update to help it sell (nothing major). My home sold to the first couple that looked at it! What a relief not to have to keep showing it. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again but hope that we are now in our forever home :-) Thanks Darbi
