Pepper Pike, Ohio

"I highly recommend Darlene to ANYONE purchasing a home or looking for a rental. During our relocation process, Darlene listened intently to our wants and needs. Her response time was incredibly fast and she acted swiftly to secure a rental home in a competitive market so we could take our time looking for a home to purchase. When we finally found the home we wanted to purchase, she once again acted very quickly to negotiate and secure the deal. She is smart, classy, knowledgeable, and fun! She also thinks outside of the box to help her clients envision the potential of the properties. We have purchase other homes in other areas so we were not new to the process, and we were highly impressed with Darlene and the service she provided. She’s definitely a top-notch agent and we can’t recommend her enough."

As a first time home buyer, I was very nervous going into the process. I was across the country for work during most of the home buying process, but Darlene was always incredibly accessible and accommodating (even across time zones). There were times when I wouldn't even be able to say for sure when I would be in town, but Darlene would manage to pull things together for me at the last second when I gave her a late answer. The company that I chose to use for my mortgage was a huge pain to work with and was causing communication issues between all of the parties involved, and Darlene went out of her way to reign them in and drag them kicking and screaming all the way to the closing date (which due to some miracles on Darlene's end we managed to meet, despite the lender doing their best to mess it up). I cannot recommend Darlene highly enough. If you're looking for someone that is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about what they do, and someone that will go the extra mile to fight for you and get your deal done, look no further. I can't imagine buying my next home without Darlene's services.

My husband and I were moving back to Ohio from another state and with a newborn so we had a lot on our plate and only a couple of weeks to find a home and as first time home buyers we did not know what to expect. Darlene made the entire process easy and fun. Countless days we would contact her way past office hours even on Saturday nights with homes we wanted to see and she was always quick to respond and never got annoyed even when I had no idea what type of house I was looking for. Ultimately Darlene sent me us a link for a house she thought would be perfect for us and we ended up putting an offer on that house the next day after seeing it and falling in love! We only had a short time to close on the house and move in unless we wanted to move in with family so Darlene worked over time and even on weekends to help us close in a month, even moving up the closing date a week early when we asked. I never want to move because I am in love with this home but if we ever have to move again we will always choose Darlene

Darlene is an unbelievably fantastic realtor. For a profession that is sometimes criticized for its ability to add real value, Darlene adds real value at every turn in the process. She listens, but she also hears what you mean. She is one of the most effective communicators that we have met and, although we were certainly difficult, she never lost patience with us. She encouraged us and was a consummate resource. The unqualified recommendation is a rare thing. We give Darlene Kearney our complete recommendation and anyone who has her as a realtor should consider themselves fortunate. Nothing but good things to say - she even saved us $400 at the closing by noting an error in the HUD. Unbelievably good. Ed & Holly

We listed our home with Darlene and had a very aggressive timeline due to the fact that we were relocating to another state. Darlene worked tremendously hard to hit that deadline, and we ended up exceeding it. Not only was Darlene a top notch business women, she really helped us to navigate the waters of relocation as well. I would recommend Darlene to any seller or buyer!

Mark & Colleen

Darlene was a fabulous real estate professional. She really gives the "personal touch" to her clients. She helped us with every step of the process--with *great* advice about how to sell our home and helpful answers to our questions. Her negotiation abilities are a primary factor in what secured the sale of our home. Her recommendations for other professionals (lawyer, mortgage professional, inspector, etc) were spot on. We would highly recommend her to anyone!

Darlene is the most professional realtor I have ever worked with and we have worked with many. She is extremely well versed in her area and very honest. Darlene goes out of her way to make sure that her customers are well informed to make the best decision possible. Gentry

Buying a home in and of itself is a very stressful and exciting time. Having the right Realtor to help you navigate and guide you through the journey to your perfect home makes all the difference. My husband and I worked with Darlene on the purchase of our home. Darlene was patient, flexible, and used her many connections to find our perfect home. She ensured she identified the best inspection team to make our home buying process as easy as possible. I would recommend her to my closest friend. Adriana & Emanuel

Darlene did a great job in helping us sell my fathers home. She is very knowledgeable and kept us up to date on the progress and even helped touch up the paint in February because the appraiser required it.


Darlene is a very professional agent that I have met. She goes above and beyond my expectation. She is hard working. I would definitely recommend Darlene to all my relatives and friends.
Thanks, Darlene!

Sold our house & helped us build a new home

Once we decided to put our house on the market we knew right away that Darlene would be our agent. Darlene was absolutely wonderful to work with. With her connections and experience she sold our house in 4 days!! She guided us through the entire process which went smooth with no problems. Not only did she assist us with selling our house she was by our side while we were building our new house. She was with us when we negotiated with the builder guiding us to make sure we were getting what we always dreamed about. She would drive by our new home to make sure the builder was on schedule and check in with us to make sure everything was going smooth. Darlene took the fear out of selling and buying a new home. We would highly recommend Darlene to all. She did a terrific job and we will always be grateful for her hard work and most of all friendship! Erin & Mike

Sold house

Darlene was an amazing realtor. I was very emotional in selling my home but she made it special and helped me not just thru the transactions with ease but also helped me emotionally to cope with it. She jumped above and beyond what she needed to do without asking anything in return. She made me feel safe thruout this process. I will always recommend her. Stephanie


Darlene was a tremendous help in selling our house that allowed us to move into our current home. Her knowledge of the marketplace, trends and conditions were invaluable to us. What helped us most was the personal time that Darlene took with us to go from room to room to give us her advice on how best to stage and present the room to make it more appealing to buyers. All in all Darlene was an absolute gem! I strongly recommend her to anyone considering selling their home.


Darlene was extremely patient and responsive to all of our requests. She worked hard to get the house sold, and was very creative in problem resolution.
