My wife and I recently relocated and purchased a home in Nevada City. We were fortunate to have Darlene as our real estate agent. Darlene made the experience of purchasing a home pleasant and educational. We not only laughed together, but she listened to what we were looking for in our future home and worked tirelessly to deliver what we had envisioned. She also took care of the endless minutia during the escrow period in an efficient, prompt and professional manner. My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend Darlene as your real estate agent.
Darlene is warm, knowledgeable and detail oriented. She guided us through the selling process giving us great advice. Communicating and following through every step of the way. She truly knows the real estate market and how to keep her clients informed throughout the process!

We would like to take this opportunity to share our truly lovely experience with our real estate agent Darlene Martin through a life changing decision to move clear across the country at the point of our retirement. She was to become our tireless researcher, videographer, sometimes spirit guide and friend throughout the process of finding “just the right house!”
Her eagerness to go the extra mile for us, was evident every day. As we settle in, she continues to check in with us to follow up on anything we might need. It is with sincerity and gratitude that we highly recommend Darlene Martin for anyone trying to find a home in Nevada County. She is extremely thorough and most of all thoughtful! We consider ourselves fortunate to have met her and will always work with her if the occasion arises in the future.

My husband and I met Darlene about a year ago while we were strolling in downtown Nevada City. We had been thinking of buying a home in Nevada County. We happened to walk by her office looking at homes for sale in the window. We struck up a conversation with Darlene and away we went on our journey to find the right property. Darlene is a very pleasant, positive, organized, hard working agent. She listened to our needs and helped us achieve our dreams. We are very happy with our agent Darlene Martin and couldn’t have had a better experience!
