About Darlene

 I am a South Carolina native and 18-year real estate professional, starting my real estate career in Chicago in 2000, returning to SC in 2010. I joined Carolina One Real Estate at that time with their New Homes division, representing builders in various communities in the Charleston metropolitan area. In 2017, I returned to the resale market conducting my business out of the Carolina One Mt Pleasant North office. I represent buyers and sellers on Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palms, Mt Pleasant, Charleston Peninsula, Daniel Island, North Charleston, West Ashley, and Summerville.

I offer my clients an unmatched level of market knowledge, service, and integrity. I work with first-time home buyers to CEOs, to some of the finest builders. My client base is as diverse as the properties I represent. I have extensive experience in new construction communities, single-family homes, townhouses and condominiums.

I have a system for working with buyers starting with the buyer interview, agency disclosure, covering the steps involved in buying a home from your loan approval to the home search using the funnel system, and what goes into constructing the offer. I will negotiate on your behalf, ensuring we get through the hurdles of home inspection, repairs, appraisal and CL 100. 

I make a significant investment in the properties I sell. Before putting a home on the market, I offer a pre-inspection to uncover any issues so they can be addressed. I will work with sellers to optimize the presentation of their home, to identify their target market, to develop a strategic marketing plan, to analytically assess market value, and to prepare customized marketing materials including brochures, floor plans, and photography. 

I offer a comprehensive mix of high-quality print and web-based advertising venues as well as email feedback after each showing. 

I also help clients who are moving out of the area by introducing them to top agents in other cities or states.

Prior to my career in real estate, I graduated from Loyola University Chicago where I taught school and raised my family. Traveling to spend time with my grown kids in Chicago and NYC are my favorite pastimes. I live on Sullivan’s Island with my husband.
