A Little About Our Realtor...
As a Realtor®, Darren has a unique combination of 30+ years of corporate experience combined with nearly 20 years of real estate investing/development and 10 years of small business ownership experience. Throughout his career, Darren has always offered clients a white-glove level of service which is the primary reason Darren has so many satisfied clients and professional contacts which he would be happy to provide as references.
Darren and his family are life-long residents of Union County (Westfield, Cranford & Mountainside) where his son is High School competing in various sports. In addition, Darren and his family are lovers of the Jersey Shore and they can often be spotted in Lavallette and up and down the Barnegat Barrier Island.
In addition to helping his clients buy and sell primary and vacation homes, he is also eager to discuss real estate investing with clients as a way to diversify wealth and generate passive income. Darren is active in Union, Morris, Somerset, Ocean and Monmouth Counties and a member of both Garden State MLS and Monmouth-Ocean MLS.
Real Estate is a Technology Game!
As you know, real estate has turned into a technology business and the Realtor® with the most tools and technology skills will have the most success for you! Knowing this, wouldn't you want to partner with a Realtor® who spent the a significant part of his career in IT (information technology)? Darren has over 35 years in technology and was an early adopter of the Internet as it started to get commercialized in the early 1990's. Darren leverages social media, custom websites, email marketing, search engine optimization and, now, artificial intelligence with solutions like homebot.ai to best serve his clients. Don't settle for second best when it comes to the technical part of the business. Choose an agent who knows how to get things done!
