More about Darrell Steele

Having the right real estate agent means having an agent who is committed to helping you buy or sell your home with the highest level of expertise in your local market. This also means helping you understanding each and every step of the buying or selling process. This commitment level has helped me build a remarkable track record of delivering results. I started my career in real estate as a ‘part time’ Agent in the fall of 2007 and by the fall of 2008 (at the start of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression) I had dedicated my entire professional life to being the best Realtor® I could be. Over the last 14 years, I have worked my way up from a Broker to a Managing Broker and I specialize in assisting buyers & sellers. Having lived and traveled around western WA, I am very familiar with most cities, towns, and neighborhoods. Before real estate I was in the ...

Darrell Steele

  • Darrell helped me buy a home

      This was my first home buying experience and Darrell made it as easy as he could. I never felt like I was bothering him or asking too many questions...even when I was! I would recommend him for anyone looking for a friendly, personable realtor.

    • He was so good at helping me and my wife, that we will use him everytime. I've used him twice now and everytime he has saved us money and made us money. He's a former contractor so he knew what to look for when the inspection came. He also could give you ballpark estimates on repairs or any upgrade to your home, so you knew what you were looking at in the future. We moved out of the area and we still contact him for advice on real estate matters and he is always willing to help.

      - Tad & Annette, Snohomish
    • We were put into contact with Darrell Steele via the mlsonline website (which we used extensively in gathering preliminary information). What Darrell helped us with was in learning what was important to us, and then finding houses just slightly outside what we had been searching. It was amazing! In the first group of houses he sent to us, we found our dream home!Darrell was as responsive as we needed him to be without being at all overbearing or pushy. His goal wasn't to sell a house, it was to help us find what we were looking for. I highly recommend Darrell to anyone on the house hunt! And good luck!

      - Kathleen, Marysville
    • Darrell is very patient. He also shared his knowledge of many aspects of home buying and ownership that enabled us to avoid problems and obtain a very satisfactory new home.

      - Dave & Josie, Snohomish
    • Darrell was so great with us! We were first time home buyers & he was so patient with our endless questions & constant want to look at homes. He went above & beyond getting us into our amazing home! We would recommend him to anyone!!!

      - Alicia, Lynnwood
    • We hired Darrell to sell our condo and to find us a single family home to fit our expanding family. Not only did Darrell negotiate the sale of our condo at full asking price, he was also able to find a move in ready home and he was also able to negotiate more than we thought we would get from the sellers. I have since recommended Darrell to other friends who are actively looking to buy.

      - Ron & Erin, Lynnwood
    • I can honestly say that without Darrell's help, we would not be in a home right now, or rather in the home we wanted. My wife and I worked with Darrell on the purchase of our first home, after working with another agent who didn't produce. Darrell by comparison was fast, responsive and worked aggressively on our behalf in what was and is a very competitive market.We had everything working against us... a tight price-range, a short time-frame, a specific area, a specific style home, a lack of inventory, and the most competitive market imaginable. Darrell really took the time to understand our situation and requirements, and went to work for us passionately. I was extremely impressed with his overall knowledge, of the process, the different areas, negotiating and tactics. It was in fact his tactics that made it possible for us to buy this home I'm sitting in right now.Darrell managed to get us in to see this home within hours of it being listed. By being first we were able to make an offer that same night, ahead of the crowds that followed the next day. It if weren't for Darrell's speed, we would likely have lost the opportunity. In this market being first counts!If you're buying or selling, and need someone to represent your interests and work hard on your behalf, Darrell should be your first choice! He's certainly ours!

      - Michael & Mandy, North Bend
    • Darrell Steele is really nice and so easy to work with! Darrell showed us many homes and helped us find the right one for us. He has been in this industry for many years and it shows. Highly recommended.

      - Joe, Auburn
    • Darrell is a great agent. I like him a lot. I am a Chinese, stay in China in most of my time, couldn't come to see in person at once when I found new house came over on the market . Darrell helped me to see each house which I interested in, one by one. I think he had looked houses for me more than 20 houses, it was last almost one year. he was very thoughtful and very patient, took a lot of photos of the house details email me, really work hard! finally I bought a house without see in person! he is an agent you can trust!

      - Weiran, Marysville
    • It took us almost one year to find a house and Darrell never gave up on us. Anytime we wanted to see a house he made himself available for us. We knew we could trust him and that he would be upfront and honest with us at all times. He was always pleasant and cheerfull and willing to help. When it comes time to sell our current house we are calling Darrell! Now he helped us sell this house! He's fantastic!

      - Wendy & Dennis, Lake Stevens
    • Darrell Steele helped us buy our first house. Darrell is very respectful, honest and always answered my phone calls. He always updated the process of the loan. I recommend him to anyone who wants to buy a house. Darrell also gave me an idea of how to increase my credit. I hope this helps your needs.

      - AJ, Auburn
    • The home buying process with Darrell was awesome. He was easy to get a hold of, acted and responded quickly, and was always respectful in his interactions. I appreciate that he always spoke through the processes we were going through and kept us informed. We quickly recommended Darrell to my parents, who were selling their house, and we will certainly use him again ourselves.

      - Charles & Sonja, Lake Forrest Park
    • He is dedicated, hard working and very knowledgeable. He assisted me with the purchase of my home and did a great job. He was available when I wanted to see property and had helpful information at our meetings.

      - Dawn, Woodinville
    • We had a great experience with Darrell. We needed to find a house in 3 days and he took us around to tons of houses and we were able to find and put an offer on the house we wanted on the 3rd day. He was always pleasant and willing to work with our schedule.

      - Nathan & Telisha, Snohomish
    • We got in contact with Darrell when he was originally working as an agent independently with the MLS. We requested a contact through their website and he responded. At that point we had just begun the process of exploring buying a home. Little did we know that Darrell was so good, we would have an offer down within the month. He handled the negotiation, setting up tours of places we suggested and he suggested, and since we bought the home 5+ years ago, has stayed in touch consistently as a friend. This man is the IDEAL for a real estate agent. He also used to build custom homes and because of this has real experience for walking through a site in progress and noting the good and bad work being done by the builder. Since we bought our home, we've recommended Darrell several times and he has helped 3 other friends buy their new home as well. CAN'T RECOMMEND ENOUGH!!!!

      - Adam & Kassandra, Bothell
    • Darrell was patient, thorough, and responsive. I was selective and waited for the perfect place - for 2 years. Darrell never pushed and found the perfect home for me.

      - Wilma, Lake Forrest Park
    • Darrell Steele is a wonderful real estate agent. He has been a wonderful person to work with and was always responsive and professional. He looks out for his clients and provides excellent service. I always look forward to hearing from him and will hopefully have an opportunity to work with him in the future.

      - Kerri, Snohomish
    • We had almost two weeks together, we looked at more than 20 houses during that time . He always understood our thoughts in time and updated our direction day by day , let us approach our goal easily . He was nice and friendly . He served us as much as he could do , including helping us to setup our utility service account after buying a house . He also gave us useful advice about our homeowner insurance . He is reliable for me . I will surely recommend him to my friends if they have real estate needs .

      - David, Marysville
    • My wife and I relocated to Seattle and had a difficult time deciding on an area to make what we hope will be our last real estate purchase. We relocated many times during our careers and were experienced home buyers but finding the last home was not easy for us. We met Darrell during our search and were impressed with his knowledge of the business, the area markets and his work ethic. He was willing to go absolutely anywhere to help expose us to all areas for our consideration. We found him to be smart, hard working, patient and a pleasure to work with. When we finally found the perfect home, he proved to be an excellent negotiator. I recommend Darrell without reservation to anyone needing a Realtor in the greater Seattle area.

      - Paul & Kathy, Silverdale
    • Darrell sold my dad's house when he passed in 2010 and did a great job marketing the property. I have worked with Darrell over the past 7 years and always find him to be helpful, knowledgeable and hardworking.

      - Tom, Bellevue
    • Darrell worked with us to find the right place. He is a generous person giving of himself in the process to make sure your search and eventual purchase go well. He will go the extra mile for you.His negotiation skills are excellent and we found that any situations we ran into were resolved in our favor or with acceptable compromise by both parties.A background in the building industry has provided a valuable insight and has prevented us from making decisions we would have certainly regretted if we had ignored him.His attentiveness to detail is critical. All in all we would highly recommend Darrell to anyone who is looking for a professional in the industry who will listen and respond accordingly.

      - Bob & Sally, Seattle
    • I contacted Darrell Steele to assist me in the sale of my house after a handful of not-so-helpful encounters with other realtors and I was very happy that I did. I met Darrell and decided to hire him due to his professionalism and extensive knowledge of the realty world. Darrell listed my house, had an open house the first two weekends and I accepted a very nice offer only after 3 weeks on the market. I would strongly suggest Darrell to anyone looking to buy/sell property

      - Shawn & Cara, Snohomish
    • Darrell helped us find a condominium for our daughter in the Seattle area. This was no easy task, as she lives in Seattle but her father and I are in California. So, the process involved considerable research and communication between all of us. We inadvertently made the process even more complicated by pursuing two different properties only to decide neither would do after making the initial offer on each. Darrell was phenomenally patient with us, and so helpful to our daughter, finding several suitable properties to show her within her price range. Ultimately he found the perfect condo for her, and successfully negotiated the purchase for us. Every step of the way he was extremely professional and genuinely kind. He was truly a pleasure to work with, and we would happily recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Seattle area.

      - Shari & Dan, Seattle
    • Full disclosure, I wrote a review years ago, after Darrell Steele helped my daughter buy her first home. It's been five years since she bought that place, and three since the review, and while I could figure out what account I used and edit that review, it makes more sense to do a new review since this is an entirely different home purchase. Through an unexpected turn of events I and my husband found ourselves suddenly relocating to the Seattle area in January of this year (2017). While we knew the area somewhat as our daughters live here, we had a lot to learn about the various neighborhoods, home prices, and purchasing in a brutally tight seller-driven market. While we were in a reasonably good position as buyers (having sold our SoCal home, with money in hand and a loan lined up), if we hadn't had a top notch realtor we would probably be regretting our move today. Our prior experience with Darrell Steele had been a condo purchase with our daughter, a fraction of the value of what we were now considering, and in a much more buyer-friendly market. The purchase this time around was considerably more challenging. It involved monitoring the real estate listings daily, even hourly, trying to find, tour and bid on a series of desirable houses before they were each snapped up by other buyers, because the market is seriously that tough in Seattle right now. Darrell is both a top notch negotiator, and a realist. He let us know what to expect and guided us on how to best play the bidding war game. His background as a contractor gives him exceptional insight into the condition of any dwelling you might be considering, a major plus for new homebuyers. It saved us from unpleasant surprises, and reassured us as we considered the real value of potential homes (tough to do in a market where the list price is only a starting point) Darrell ultimately secured a solid contract and a great deal on the home we finally purchased. Throughout the entire process he not only put up with our countless (and often extensive) calls and texts, he responded to each one quickly and thoroughly. Thanks to his expertise we closed escrow in 21 days, and there were no unpleasant surprises in the contract we signed or in the home we bought. I've met and dealt with more than my share of realtors over the past year, between selling our home in California and buying our home in Washington. None, and I do mean none, has held my respect the way Darrell has. I unhesitatingly recommend him if you are looking for a realtor who is both a seasoned pro, and who will really be looking out for your interests with thoroughness and patience throughout the entire process.

      - Shari & Dan, Kent
    • My wife and I met Darrell as a listing agent showing his client's house to us. He was different from all the other agents we had met. By the end of the showing, we knew we had found the agent we wanted to work with. The house he showed almost worked for us, but just wasn't the one.

      - Daniel & Sarah, Kent
    • Darrell was responsive and accommodating with our schedules. We were nervous as first time home buyers and he took time to educate us along the way. He was very knowledgeable! Will absolutely work with him again.

      - Jolynn & Chuck, Kent
    • My wife and I were looking to purchase a home in the Skagit Valley. Darrell helped us identify our needs and took the time to help us find exactly what we were looking for. He made arrangements for us to visit several properties in the Skagit Valley and was very patient with us as we sought that just right house. Once we found that place Darrell guided us through the purchasing process, including price negotiations, the home inspection, repair requests and closing, all with great expertise. I highly recommend Darrell!

      - Brian & Sue, Anacortes
    • I am a type A person with high expectations, and tons of questions. We recently closed on our second deal with Darrel and I couldnt be more impressed with his knowledge, professionalism, and sense of urgency. He provides so many extra things other agents dont. He is totally the best in the biz.

      - Katin & Kevin, Everett
    • As a first time homebuyer, I was nervous about the process and unsure if I was making the right choices at times. Buying a home is a huge financial commitment, and it's not a decision you can just undo. I chose Darrell as my real estate broker because of his experience and proven track record, and I was not disappointed. Darrell helped me navigate the process and was very helpful from the get-go. When I first met him, I wasn't yet committed to going home searching since I wanted to take some extra time to save up for a larger down payment. Darrell was patient with me and explained the process from beginning to end. He always made himself available for contact and responded promptly to any questions I had. When I was finally ready to go touring homes, his past work experience as a contractor proved very helpful, as he could spot issues with homes quickly that were not immediately obvious to me, and he was very helpful during the home inspection on the home I ended up selecting as well. He was always on-time for appointments and was very effective at communicating any questions or concerns I had with the seller. My overall impression of Darrell was that he was very professional, effective, and was able to move quickly to help me find a home I am really happy with. If you're looking to buy a home, this is definitely the guy for the job!

      - Augustin, Seattle
    • Darrell consistently kept us up informed. It was obvious that he was sincere during all our interactions. Darrell consistently offered advice, guidance and knowledge without delay and usualy was able to give us pertinent 'head-ups' regarding what to expect during the process. I am not sure how our experience could have been more stress-free and comfortable!! We definitely did not buy a very expensive home, but we felt like we were his best client!!

      - Amanda & Bobby, Marysville
    • As a first time home buyer Darrell made my experience one to remember. He was quick to help me put together an offer and got me the house that I wanted. He kept me posted throughout the entire process with the builder to get the things needed to be fix in house in time for closing. I would recommend anyone looking to buy a house to work with Darrell.

      - Duong, Kenmore
    • We turned to Darrell when our deal fell thru with another well known company and that was a horrible feeling and experience. Darrell picked up the ball got us back up and running in no time. We were able to sell our home quickly which we didn't think was going to happen due to the market shift. We are so very grateful. He is very thorough very responsive highly knowledgeable and has a great feel for the market. The best thing yet about Darrell tho is his personal connection with us. He is a friend not just an agent. Connect with him he's a gift in this industry.

      - Terry & Christie, Everett
    • Just sold our first home, of almost 30 years. Darrell was very helpful throughout the process, and probably most impressive was how quickly he would respond and check things out.

      - Bob & Joanna, Everett
    • We found Darrell through a different local listing site about 4 years before purchasing our home. Darrell was very patient with us, and helped us through every step of the process to prepare buying a home. He has an extensive network of trusted lenders, credit repair people, and a surprising knowledge of the Puget Sound. Darrell answered every call from us, despite being on vacation while we were looking. I could not recommended his services any higher.

      - Curtis & Kathrine, Puyallup
    • Darrell was so easy to work with both when I bought a home and eventually sold that home. He is straight forward, very knowledgeable about the complicated real estate process and went above and beyond for me when I was living out of state and selling my house in Washington.

      - Holly, Edmonds
    • Darrell was such a breath of fresh air in comparison to other agents I had dealt with in the past. We was knowledgeable, very responsive to texts and calls, and his easy going manner made stressful situations easier to deal with. Highly recommend.

      - Glenn & Julie, Bothell
    • My wife and I spent the better part of two intense days, with Darrell, looking in the area in and around Spanaway. We looked at about 18 homes and Darrell gave his honest opinion of each home. Having been a builder, he is more knowledgeable than many realtors and I personally found that to be a huge asset. Darrell also handled the sale of our other home, and without going into detail, the buyer was difficult to deal with, putting Darrell and ourselves to the test. We consider Darrell to be a friend and we think that's the best recommendation one can give to anyone.

      - Keith & Bunny, Seattle
    • He was very responsive and willing to work with our work schedules in order to coordinate visiting houses. Always had suggestions and things to think about while looking at the homes. Highly recommend.

      - Abi & Mike, Everett
    • Darrell Steele has been wonderful to work with! He is very responsive, always there to help, and never too busy to answer any questions you might have during the process. Thanks for making this such a great experience for us Darrell!

      - Betty, Shoreline
    • I would highly recommend Darrell Steele to anyone buying or selling a home. Darrell was professional, hard working and handled all of our concerns promptly. His attention to detail and knowledge of the real estate market made our purchase and sale go smoothly.

      - Ian & Jenifer, Everett
    • This gentleman was a God Send back a couple years ago. We were looking for locations and places in Woodinville area online and found one that we took great interest in. So he was kind enough to show the place to our daughter and husband as we were out of state at that time. He did an excellent job with information and our daughter felt we would be happy with this find. He carried us thru the steps of purchasing and we came up just before closing and he showed us the home we had invested our money in and we were pleased with it. He is professional, kind and very open to suggestions and works well for and with the buyer as far as we concerned. He gets my recommendation when I hear of someone in the market for an agent.
