Darren and Joe are attentive, responsive, proactive and extremely well-versed in all facets of realty. They have been instrumental partners post-sale and take great ownership over helping us achieve our goals for our home. We're incredibly grateful for having Darren and Joe as partners and helping us navigate the hurdles of our first home purchase. Can't recommend these two rock stars enough.
Couldnât be better. Excellent realtor in every sense, helped to sell a home that was a rental home had to sell with the tenant., a rent control transaction. A difficult situation Sold within two weeks. Helped purchase a property, this was a 1031 transaction, everything went smoothly, I highly recommend joe and Darren
A long overdue praise for Darren and Joe. Making the decision to list my LA home for sale and hopefully make my dream come true of buying a home and living full time in Palm Springs was made possible by the amazing team of Darren Hubert and Joe Cloninger. I was very worried about selling a 1910 home in LA as it was " as is" yet Darren during our first meeting explained that all house's are " sold as is' which put me at ease. Although my home had lots of character and fun stuff to look at, it needed lots of work. Darren and his ( amazing and talented ) wife Andrea as well as a contractor ( here I believe the phrase " you need to spend money to make money" is appropriate yet I only spent about 7K to MUCH improve the home) got to work IMMEDIATELY .. no time wasted. The end result was a one time open house with multiple offers and in the end I more than doubled my original investment !!!! Darren and Joe were a referral from one of dearest friends and her husband who bought a home ( of their dreams) in LA thanks to this amazing team. No words can express my gratitude in what Darren, Joe and Andrea did to help me accomplish my dream except Thank you, Thank you, Thank you !!!
I found this agent at a Open House. It was the property we were looking for, so we asked if he could represent us too as a buyer. He agreed to the double ending and we communicated at the open house for details on how to proceed on the offer. Big mistake! This agent had lack of knowledge and experience that cost me this house. Very unethical, rude, and talks down to you, especially if you are a Veteran who is wanting to use his VA loan. Late with replies and never followed up.
Working with Darren and Joe was amazing. I would highly recommend them to friends. They went above and beyond helping my partner and I find a place by looking for homes that could be a good fit. Darren also helped steer us away from places that would not be good for a family with a young baby.
We ended up going with a fixer upper and Darren helped draw up plans for the remodel. Totally amazing.
He also expertly guided us through the process of making an offer, which is quite an art in a market like LA. This is where his experience and relationships really pay off.
Lastly, Darren knows construction and a great deal about home maintenance with is a big plus.
Darren helped my husband and me buy our first place (a condo) in 2004. Thirteen years and two kids later, we went back to Darren to sell our condo and buy a house. Iâve heard that all real estate transactions have at least a snag or two, but ours ended up being extremely complicated (through no fault of ours or his!). Regardless, Darrenâs knowledge, experience tenacity, and the professional local connections heâs built got us through it all and into our dream home. We recommend him wholeheartedly!!!
darren has been an invaluable help in planning and executing my move from portland, or. to altadena, ca. during the over a year of planning for my move, darren has provided advice and guidance which included researching the portland market and locating a realtor to sell my three houses in portland. within one week of moving to altadena, darren located and negotiated the purchase of a house that fulfilled all of my conditions and hopes for a new life in l.a. after buying the house darren was tireless in arranging the many upgrades and renovations i needed to make the house my own.
darren has a seemingly endless knowledge of resources and requirements for carrying out every detail of buying and improving a property for a new owner. i have every confidence in the support darren offered before, during and after my move.
working with darren is also a most pleasant experience; he is personable, friendly and respectful. i am grateful to darren for being instrumental in my being successfully settled in altadena.
thank you darren for your friendship and patience!
I had Darren list and sell a house and was very satisfied with his services and his professionalism. He was always willing to help with any questions during the process of the transaction.
I highly recommend him and will definitely use his services again.
Went above and beyond our every expectation. Darren and Joe helped us prep our house for listing and were so fast we even got to list early. Less than two weeks after meeting them for the first time we had a set of amazing offers to choose from! At the same time they helped us find an purchase our new home and even helped us with contractors to make it our own. They made it as painless as possible and should we need realtor services again we wouldn't go anywhere else. Can't recommend enough!
Darren and his partner Joe were unbelievably good. I've bought and sold all kinds of condos, houses and buildings and this was the best experience I've ever had. They were ON IT. We hardly had to lift a finger. In fact, we didn't. Once we listed with them, we never even had to go the house again. They cleaned it up, had their guys fix everything, had it staged, beautified it better than it ever was, even painted the garage and front doors a matching cool color. We wound up getting $80,000 more than we asked! I can't recommend them more. They make me want to buy and sell another house just to work with them again!
