A real estate professional’s reputation is based not only on their track record of sales and achievements, but on an even more important factor: how well their clients feel they have been treated, assisted, and the service they’ve received. Darlene’s clients have left numerous reviews on Google, Zillow, Realtor.com and Yelp – here is just a small sample of what they have had to say about working with her.

No one does real estate better! Darlene is tireless, dedicated, professional. She is accessible day and night and is backed up by a talented team. Her knowledge of Santa Fe and the surrounding area is boundless. Darlene’s contacts and resources helped to make the sale and subsequent purchase of our homes possible. There is a reason Darlene is ranked #1 in Santa Fe: she deserves it!”  – Janice R.

Darlene is the kind of real estate agent that every prospective buyer hopes for. In the beginning, she guided us through some rather tricky negotiations, which ended in the purchase of our perfect Santa Fe home. But even after the closing papers were signed, she has continued to help us with the move-in process, recommending trades people to get the place up and running smoothly. We couldn’t have done it all without her.”  – Elizabeth O.

Darlene is terrific. Moreover, she has assembled a wonderful team who takes care of all the details surrounding the sale of your existing home or the purchase of your new home. They just did both for me and I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcomes.”  – Judge Houser

Darlene impressed us with her absolute command of the Santa Fe market. Her real estate team streamlined and double checked every transaction and got us to closing in 28 days. She is a powerhouse who commands respect because of her virtuosic competence but also enjoys the affection of everyone who knows her. We’re grateful, of course, but more than that – we’re deeply impressed! Why would anyone go with another broker when they could have Darlene?” – Wendy B.

I used Darlene Streit to sell my house in Santa Fe. I am impressed—with her knowledge of the Santa Fe real estate market, with the skills of her staff, with her strength as a negotiator, with her round-the-clock availability, and with the overall calm professionalism of Darlene and her staff. I was told that Darlene is the best real estate broker in Santa Fe. Based on my experience, I am confident that is true.”  – Michael S.

We found Darlene to be very professional. Answered all our questions with knowledge about selling in this present market at our price range. She took every opportunity to publicize the house in the various medias to reach possible buyers and other brokers. Darlene is a very hard worker and strives to do her best with what is available. We felt she understood our concerns throughout the time of trying to sell the house and at the sale.”  – Arlena M

Darlene and her team were fantastic to work with from beginning the property search to the final moments of closing on my dream home! I was buying/moving from out of state, but Darlene and her team made the entire process so smooth it didn’t matter if I was next door or around the world. The team’s knowledge of the area was critical for someone buying from outside the state and I felt like I truly had an advocate looking out for my best interest every step of the way. I highly recommend Darlene for anyone considering investing in a home in the Santa Fe area.”  – Diana G.

Besides being an absolutely extraordinary warm and generous person, Darlene gets it done! Her team is about perfection and they were on every detail [and there were a lot of them] of my home sale. Darlene and her team are the rare combination of impeccable efficiency, precision and authentic concern and care that are so rare in any field, but particularly in Real Estate. I will be forever grateful for the service and high degree of skill and experience Darlene brought to my sale.” – Justin H.

Darlene, I am writing to thank you for your excellent service as my buyer broker for my recent purchase of a house. From the beginning of this relationship, through the closing, and after, your responsiveness, professionalism, and courtesies were beyond my expectations. During the two decades that I have known you, I have been impressed by your intelligence, your creativity and your drive. Now, after this experience, I have an even greater appreciation for your abilities. I remember remarking to you how pleased I was with the progression of the contract phases prior to closing and you modestly responded that half of your job was showing up on time and doing what you said you would do. That may be so, but you and your able assistant delivered on the other half as well. I now understand how you have become one of the top producing real estate agents in Santa Fe. I also understand how your friends become clients and how your clients become friends. I wish you the best of luck and continued success as you proceed on this career.  – Arthur A. Fields, Atty.

The relocation process and the search for a new house can be one of the most stressful endeavors a family or individual can face. Darlene’s comprehensive grasp of the Santa Fe market makes the selection process smooth and easy. As a retired attorney, I especially appreciated her professional and organized approach to achieve the client’s requirements and dreams. All Emails and phone messages are returned promptly, appointments are punctual and best of all she is a good listener. Darlene’s knowledge of the construction industry, local contractors, architects and designers further “smoothed out” the transition. When everything was said and done, I was glad that I had Darlene on my side.  – Bruce Geller, Atty.

Darlene has helped me or a close relative of mine to successfully complete at least 10 real estate transactions in the last seven years. She came highly recommended to me, and I highly recommend her. When it comes to real estate she is high energy, extremely focused, and totally dedicated. Darlene IS Santa Fe real estate.  – Lisa F.

Darlene, I would like to take a moment to express our sincere appreciation for the recently completed transactions on the successful closing of both the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our current home. As a result of your efforts, we were able to complete both within 3 days of each other. Over the course of many years, (as a corporate gypsy) we have experienced the purchase and sale of numerous homes from east coast to west coast and in between. Your effort, thoroughness and follow through, from listing to closing were exemplary. You and your demonstrated the highest level of professionalism!! Thanks, again.  – J & H
