“I have never seen someone work so hard and so diligently with the sale of a home. Darren is a very kind, honest, and caring person. We really appreciate all of his hard work and his challenging efforts on this sale. We know it was not easy. He is such a professional and just gets the job done!” – Kathy and Russell Nakaoka

“Darren is an excellent agent. He took over our listing from a prior agent. He quickly understood our goals, and provided candid, competent advice to get our house sold. At first open house, we had 5 offers — 4 over asking. With our previous agent, we had none. Darren is confident, knows the South Bay market, and works hard for his clients. We could not have been more pleased with our decision to hire Darren.” – John Vogt

“Darren is knowledgeable and up-to-date on the ever changing South Bay market. He not only sold my home at top dollar, but helped me score a premium property, in a highly desirable area, for a great price. You are in good handswith Darren.” – Tracey Larrabee

“Darren did a great job for us. He guided us through the process of selling our home. Darren’s projections proved to be accurate. The people he recommended for help with home preparation and renovation were first rate. From start to finish, Darren and his associates were proactive, prepared, and easy to work with. We highly recommend him.” – David and Sandy Reiser

“Darren is a delight to work with! He really takes the time to get to know his client’s needs.

Darren is a person of extraordinary character and integrity. Someone you can really trust. He set such a high standard of professionalism and personal attention that it will be hard in the future to work with anyone else. Thank you Darren!” – Geri

“Darren Pujalet is extremely professional! He was quick to access what we were looking for in a home and in a neighborhood. I don’t think there is any other realtor out there who can focus on your family like he does. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to live in the South Bay!” – Jeff and Caroline Cook

“As a business and multiple home owner in the South Bay, I have seldom seen a real estate agent work so tenaciously and effectively in selling homes as I experienced recently with Darren Pujalet.” – Allen Sanford

“Darren did a great job of getting multiple offers very quickly after our property was listed.” – Suni Keeling

“We would like to thank Darren for his counsel and guidance as our Real Estate Agent. Darren brought the professionalism of a realtor; in addition, Darren brought his understanding of a person who was living the process of selling real estate in a down real estate market many times over. We do not think we could have sold our home without Darren and his expertise.” –Willie Drinks

“This wasn’t the first house I’ve sold or the first house I’ve bought… and Darren Pujalet wasn’t even the first agent I used. But he was the best. Period! With Darren you won’t get an agent that will tell you anything to get your listing or sell you any house just to get a commission. You won’t get his “assistant”. You won’t get his voicemail. And you definitely won’t get disappointed. What you will get is a truly likable, thoroughly professional individual that will restore your faith in the real estate business. I cannot recommend him highly enough.” – Roger Lockwood

“As a first time home buyer, I needed extra time and more careful explanations. Darren led me through it all as he wanted to make sure I bought the home that was right for me. He connected me to other trustworthy, competent people in the process and managed communications for me that would have been overwhelming without him. I have already recommended him to my friends and associates.” – Ione Soyangco

“I highly recommend Darren as a real estate agent. When selling our property, Darren thoroughly researched the market to keep us informed and recommend the best possible listing price, all the while making sure we remained competitive. Within a week, he had earned multiple offers for us to review and we went into escrow almost immediately. His attention to detail continued throughout the whole process and we always felt that we had a strong representative in our corner helping us extrapolate the most value from our property. As first time home sellers we were overwhelmed with the paper work. When forms came our way, he made sure we felt comfortable. If he did not have the answer to one of our questions, he immediately found someone that did. He illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and real estate documentation. The escrow process was smooth and we closed in a timely manner. In the end, our property sold for a substantial amount higher than any other property in our complex (Fusion on Aviation) had sold for in 2 years!” – Michael Rucker

“I had known Darren for many years outside of Real Estate prior to hiring him as my agent. I always respected his professionalism and hard work, but now I was able to experience it first hand as he helped me through the sale of my home. If you are considering Darren, I can simply say YES. He is honest, follows through on all his promises and really works hard so that all parties will come together to work within the buyers and sellers best interests…not just the agents’. He cares and it will show when you work with him.”- Tony Drockton

“We were not new to the entire process of home buying but this was our first short sale purchase. Boy! What a process! Through it all, Darren was very steady, kept us fully informed, provided advice as necessary (without pressure) and displayed a deep sense of commitment to our satisfaction. Post sale, Darren continued his communication with us, making sure we were ok and asked that we do not hesitate to call if needed. He is indeed a true professional with excellent customer service, and we can’t wait to recommend his service to our friends and colleagues! We are very much impressed with his conduct from start to finish.” – Loveth and George Akpenyi

“We moved to the South Bay from Australia with little knowledge of the market. Darren began working with us even before we arrived, and his local knowledge helped us immensely in understanding the market and process. Also, his local contacts for mortgage, inspections, and other services made our purchase both smoother and much less expensive. He is very attentive, available, and patient, and he knows his business. I would use him again.” –Jerry Joye

“Darren has been by our side through various transactions for the past 3+ years; leasing our properties, selecting excellent tenants for us, and also selling our properties in Redondo Beach and Palos Verdes, CA. His knowledge and expertise has been a great resource for us and we could not have done this without him. I would absolutely recommend Darren to anyone in need of a real estate expert.” – Michele Drinks

“Darren helped us find a great home! At the time we were looking to purchase, the market was very competitive. He identified a property for us before the initial open house, which was instrumental preparing a timely competitive offer. He worked closely with the selling broker to get our offer accepted. Once we were in escrow, Darren communicated with us daily and was very helpful navigating the home inspection and escrow process. He also referred us to several qualified consultants, including our lender, who was able to get us the most competitive loan available in the market. I would highly recommend Darren if you are in the South Bay market to purchase a home. He is always friendly, accessible, and happy to help.” – Eric and Vivian Lezak

“Darren sold my duplex, and it was actually a pleasant experience. He was responsive to all my needs and requests. He was especially adroit in being very respectful and courteous to my tenants’ needs and picky schedules. No detail was too small, and that is very important when selling income property. To be a professional, 3 items are required: competence, consideration, and convenience. Darren possesses all three factors and is a true professional. It is easy to see why he is very successful at whatever endeavor he is involved in. I will absolutely use him for my real estate needs in the future.” – John Buch

“I contacted Darren after my loan modification fell through and my property was facing foreclosure. I chose him over a dozen other real estate agents. His attention to detail was apparent and I could tell that he was someone that would give me the excellent service that I required…given the grim position I was in. We decided to do a short sale and Darren was on top of everything. With two different banks, I guarantee it wasn’t easy. Darren is a consummate professional who genuinely cares about his clients. If you want the job done right, he’s your guy.” – Marie Westphal
