Darlene Martinez was recommended to me by my retirement planner. With the prevailing conditions of the real estate market and my then present mortgage, I needed help. At our initial meeting, she respectfully asked about my needs and my wishes. She offered my family and myself several options. She made no promises, but simply prioritized what we had available. I found this very confidence inspiring and it afforded me some peace of mind. There is no replacement for knowledge and experience! She is well spoken and was able to organize the package that included prospective buyers, lenders, and all the other professionals required in the process. The real estate industry has no way to assess a dollar related value to the personal involvement, caring and compassion of its own people. As a client and a person, this is what I received from Darlene. I greatly appreciate the effort. She enjoys helping people. It shows!
