A year ago I began the arduous process of selling our family home we had owned for 52 years. I interveiwed several agents and immediately felt that Darrell Belisle of SoCal Life Realtors would do a great job. Darrell was personable and enjoyable to talk to but also had a long history of experience. He told us stories which convinced us of his sales mastery. He listened deeply and, while wisely guiding us, also gave us the respect to make final decisions on price and terms. During the six month listing, he had professional pictures and video taken, held several open houses, promoted to his extensive list and distributed flyers locally. We could count on him to answer our questions as they came up and give us valuable feedback. Sometimes he had to navigate through our own conflicts and feelings, which he did calmly and sensitively, while still helping us keep our eye on the ball. Then we received three offers in one week. That's when Darrell really displayed his negotiating skills. We ended up selling our home above the asking price. We were thrilled. Darrell is not only a great realtor, but he's also someone I now consider a friend. I would highly recommend Darrell to anyone who wants to buy or sell real estate. I look forward to working with him again.
Darrell Belisle, He is the best of the best out there! We are extremely happy with everything he did for us, he found exactly what we were looking for, he made sure we got what we deserved. When we had questions he answered them even when he was away on vacation with his family. Our son is soon to purchase his own home and of course we will be using Darrell and his team. Thank you for everything.
Darrell represented me when purchasing my condo in Brentwood. He was insanely responsive both over phone/text and over email. We were in contact as needed and at a minimum every few days. He gave great advice and made sure all our bases were covered throughout the process. He even followed up many times after the purchase was complete to see if I had any questions on the condo (for example if I had any questions on parking, storage, or how anything in the condo worked) - that was really great. I highly recommend Darrell.
Selling your house can be a nightmare but Darrell made it so easy. He was always on top of everything. His professionalism, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. We will use Darrell again.
Darrell did an extraordinary job in selling our condo and helping us find the perfect new home within about 6 weeks during the holidays! He is extremely savvy when it comes to the Orange County housing market, and he's an excellent communicator. I've used many realtors in the past, but I've never experienced the quality of service I received from Darrell and his business partner, Taryn. I would give them 10 stars if I could, and I would not hesitate to use Darrell and Taryn again in the future. They are kind, thoughtful, and responsive, on top of being truly amazing real estate agents. I feel lucky that I found one of the absolute best in the business to handle our sale and purchase.
Darrell is one of the best. This was the second purchase that Darrell has helped us with. He is proactive in finding just the right house. We live far from HB, and Darrell went and previewed many homes after asking us a ton of questions about what we like, and don't like. He found our new home in just a few days. Negotiating was thorough, and skillful. He made sure we got the deal that we wanted, and the right terms. Having Darrell really made it happen fast. Now we are ready to list our previous home and Darrell is the only one I would recommend. Thanks for everything Darrell!!
Darrell was an excellent realtor. He was very strategic about selling my home and I received multiple full price offers within 5 days, accepting a full price, all cash offer. He listened to what I said and we were able to work very collaboratively to price the house and decide what needed to be done to the house to maximize the sales price. He negotiated extremely well with a difficult agent and new owner, and for me it was an easy sale with Darrell also talking with painter, landscaper, and handling other things to help me.
Our friends recommended Darrell and we are sincerely grateful that they found him. Darrell sold our condo 24 hours after the first open house (multiple offers and sold above asking price). He knows what he is doing. He then helped us find and buy a single family home. Since Darrell is a contractor, he could give accurate estimates on how much it would cost to fix/upgrade things in the houses we were touring. He answers emails within minutes, and seem to have his phone handy at all times and stays on top of things. Happy to give Darrell our highest possible recommendation.
I really liked every aspect of how Darrell helped us buy our first home. It was more frustrating than I expected (that is the market), and his people skills really helped keep us from getting to frustrated. I also found Darrell's knowledge from being a contractor to be very helpful. He sees things we didn't see so many times. But he also thought of other possibilities and cost to make a house better that I don't think most can provide. I feel really lucky that someone referred him to us and we have already done the same.
Darrell helped us find and buy our first home. From the first meeting, Darrell's proactive approach and no-pressure style really impressed us and put us at ease. He was very patient as we looked at many houses, trying to make up our minds. He also quickly got a feel for what we were looking for and offered great suggestions. Overall, we highly recommend Darrell and SoCal Life Realtors!
Darrell was our realtor and we had a wonderful experience! With his expertise, patience and knowledge, we were able to purchase our first home. He was professional and never lost patience after looking at quite a few homes. Although buying a home is considered one of the most stressful events, with him it was a small task. I would definitely recommend Darrell and SoCal Life Realtors for any potential buyers or sellers! He is wonderful!!
Darrell was excellent from the beginning and throughout the entire process of selling a house for us. He was both respectful of the tenants and accommodating to the potential buyers during the process. He was responsive, kept me well informed and handled everything very smoothly. We were very happy with his service and highly recommend him. We will use Darrell and SoCal Life Realtors exclusively for all our real estate needs!
Darrell is a seasoned realtor who helped me find a home in a short period of time. He also represented me on the sale of a home. He knew how to deal with other realtors, to leverage and put us on top of multiple offer homes that I was interested in. Because of Darrell's understanding of current market conditions, I am a home owner! Thanks Darrell, I will reccomend you to all my friends!
Darrell was handed the task of selling my parents house which had it's own unique set of problems to complicate a sale. He was forthright with me as the seller, and in turn very honest with potential buyers. His advice and guidance allowed me to sell the house in a timely manner at a fair price which satisfied not only myself but the buyer as well. This was a complicated sale which required an uncomplicated approach. I found that attribute in Darrell who worked tirelessly until the sale was closed. He later worked patiently with my daughter to purchase a home. After carefully and thoughtfully talking to her about what she desired in a home he painstakingly worked with her until she found exactly what she desired. I've worked with many realtors through my years, but Darrell is the most ethical and thoughtful professional I have encountered.
In a competitive real estate market without a lot of quality properties available, Darrell was able to direct me to the best available property on the market, and guided me precisely to what I needed to do to make the transaction happen. No games, no drawn out process! Job well done!
