Very experienced and professional
"Darrell Done is very experienced and professional throughout the whole selling process. What separates him from other agents is he is thorough and he has a fine touch. He prepped us well, which led to finding a buyer at the first open house. We sold our place in a week! What is really impressive is Darrell continues to help us after a year...we called his office after we moved to our new house for recommendations for contractors and his assistant got back to us the same morning. Darrell is great!"
Supportive, diligent and knowledgeable

Darrell was supportive, diligent and knowledgeable throughout this process. He was discreet, confident and never lost his sense of humor.1 can't recommend him highly enough:'

I absolutely give Darrell my highest recommendation!"

We can't recommend Darrell highly enough. In the almost two years that it took us to find and buy our first home Darrell never lost patience or commitment. During our search, he was always available to look at potential houses with us and seek information and updates from the sellers' realtors. In his dealings with us and the sellers he was always professional and unfailingly punctual. Indeed, it happened so often that during open houses when we mentioned that he was our agent the seller's agent would say that we were in good hands. That was a testament to the length of Darrell's experience and to how well regarded he is by his peers. He has extensive knowledge of the Pasadena, Altadena, San Marino, Eagle Rock, Mount Washington areas and the environs; a keen eye for house details and histories; and familiarity with city codes and regulations. All that experience and attention to detail proved invaluable when we finally were in escrow. Again, Darrell always kept his cool and his advise was always spot on during that stressful process. In addition to all that, Darrell is always interesting and pleasant company.
We are new to the California housing market, and didn't really anticipate buying a house right now, we just loved the house. Darrell not only handled all of a Realtor's normal duties, he cleared all hurdles for us, handled all communications, told us what to anticipate and when to anticipate it, how to stay a step ahead in the process, plus providing us with resources for everything and anything we might need for the new house - from electrical to plumbing to antique cabinet hardware. Darrell is a treasure, he's a consummate professional and a really nice man. He took care of everything for us, immediately, he even answered my landscape questions and he was prepared to catch our exuberant little dog when she wandered onto the roof, really, I'm not making this up. Darrell is a great guy who makes the process easy.
I can't say enough positive things about Darrell. He has worked with my family for years. He recently helped my brother buy a property in Highland Park, patiently working with him over the course of two years to find the right property in a very competitive market. I also just worked with Darrell to buy a home in Pasadena. Darrell listened to what I wanted, and quickly found me just what I was looking for. He is kind and consistent. He regularly checks in without being pushy. He Offers his opinions and is highly knowledgeable of the marketplace without being a know it all. He cares very much about his clients and is extremely loyal when it comes to fairly getting them the property they want. He is honest and trustworthy. He is simply the best!
As an agent, Darrell is exceptional! We had been searching for a home to buy for years and worked with a couple of different agents with no success. Along came Darrell and everything changed for the better. Not only did he help us realize our goal of owning a single family home, but he made the process as stress-free and as educational as he could for us. He is very generous with his time and knowledge and always made us feel like we were his only clients. Not once did he answer a phone call or text while he was with us at showings or inspections. We never felt so special! Even after closing, he continued to make us feel this way. I did not know how to work our sprinkler system at the new home and he spent 30 minutes teaching me how to operate it. He is an excellent agent, but he is also a great person!
Darrell's marketing skills are superb. He was very helpful and thoughtful in his advice and guidance through the deal making and closing thicket. He listens to you. There is no better agent to have on your side.
Darrell was a pleasure to work with. He is extrememly knowledgable about the area and was very patient with me as I figured out exactly what I was looking for. I connected with Darrell through a recommendation from some friends who worked with him as the selling agent for the house they bought. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who is looking to purchase a home in the Pasadena area.
Darrell Done had been recommended to us by a friend and we respected this persons opinion. We called Darrell when we decided to sell our home and the entire process went more smoothly than we had ever imagined. Darrell was above all, totally professional, patient and knowledgeable. We were most impressed with his vision when he created an exceptional video of our home set to music, along
with a floor plan and a very detailed and interesting history of our unique home. We would recommend Darrell Done to anyone who would like selling or buying a home to be a very pleasant experience.
Darrell was absolutely terrific. He was patient, professional, and responsible. Unlike several real estate agents we have worked with in the past, he immediately returned phone calls, emails, and provided answers to all of our questions. He knows what is out there, does his research on the neighborhoods, and even knew about all the school systems in the area. We were picky buyers, and it took us almost a year and a half to buy a home, but Darrell never failed to show us every house we were interested in seeing, every single time, for a year and a half. His dedication to helping us find a home has earned him a special place in our hearts always!
Darrell Done is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and experienced. He is somebody you can trust without reservation to handle one of the most important transactions you will ever make. My husband and I used Darrell when we sold our house in Pasadena, and again when we later bought a house in La Canada. He was patient and helpful throughout the process, and he added invaluable insight with both buying and selling.
When we put our home up for sale, we couldn't have asked for better advertising, guidance with home staging, or open house hosting. He brought in over a hundred people at our open house, and we sold the house quickly and with no problems. In our search for a new home, Darrell showed us many, many houses and was cheerful and willing to seek answers to all of our questions. We always felt that he wanted us to find the home of our dreams, not the home that would bring in the quickest/biggest commission. He was also quick to resolve any potential issues in the purchase of our new house -- he made sure our needs were met and that the house was sold to us in the condition we expected. You won't find a more trustworthy real estate agent than Darrell Done.
