Darren Pujalet

    • It doesn't get any better than Darren and his amazing team. Darren's handle on the So Bay Market was dead on. He utilized a lot of different factors to sell our house and tapped into out a number of vendors to help with preparation.He created a low stress environment and was always great to interact with.

    • Recently my wife and I noticed that an absentee-owned unit in our condo building recently sold very quickly for a very good price. When it was time for us to move we contacted Darren, the agent for that other unit. That was one of the best decisions we ever made.We were quite impressed with his experience, marketing strategy, and enthusiasm. He, his assistant Amanda, and the rest of his top-notch support team were right on top of everything throughout the whole process. As a result our unit sold for a very good price in a very short time....with a minimum of effort on our part.Needless to say we are quite happy with Darren's performance and would highly recommend him to anyone needing real estate services.

    • Darren exceeded expectations! His actions made the task of selling a 20-year California rental property from my location in Florida much easier and quicker than I could have imagined. His knowledge, expertise and ability to explain each step of the process in layman terms enabled me to fully understand the tradeoffs involved and allowed me to make the best deal for my situation. He patiently guided me throughout, responding quickly to every issue that arose, including some that seemingly almost caused a rethink of the eventual sale. Darren was an extension of me, removing me from having to specifically address each and every issue as they came up. The house sold for what I consider to be a fair and reasonable price within weeks of the end of the last rental lease. I would high recommend Darren, and his Team Manager Amanda, for their professionalism and ability to get the job done.

    • Darren was our listing broker for our second house(condo) in Redondo Beach. We got a lower offer but Darren negotiated well and we got our asking price. They even wanted our high end furniture, but again Darren negotiated and then we did not have to give away our very expensive furniture. Yes, he is very good at negotiating. He is very smart and professional. Oh, his assistant Amanda was super great. Then they helped and moved all our furniture and stuff. I did not have to go to LA and do my moving. What kind of real estate brokers will do that. I can not thank you for Darren and Amanda. He will be my real estate broker for our life!!!!

    • We just closed the deal for our new house through Darren. He is awesome in a number of ways,1. Knowledgeable. He breathes South Bay, down to being able to drive you by memory through any street. Or knowing the exact (invisible) line that separates North Redondo from Hermosa Beach2. Contractor intuition and experience. He has both built houses and sold them, and it shows. He can guide you with thoughtful advice regarding house refurbishments, from who to talk to how much it would likely cost3. Even after closing, he has been devoting hours to helping us out, for example with remodeling4. Genuinely nice and caring. Self-explanatory, but he goes out of his way to be helpful and provide a long-term relationship. When we decide to sell our house and look for our next purchase, Darren's name would be a no-brainerAs good as it comes.

    • If there was a 10 star rating, I would select this for Darren and his team. Darren and his team are thoughtful, diligent and VERY professional. I also really appreciated how Darren spoke of and interacted with his team. Why did we select Darren? We saw some of the properties in our neighborhood sold by Darren and it appeared to us that the properties would have a For Sale sign and within such a short time - the properties were in ESCROW. After meeting Darren, we knew he was the right agent for us, especially for our property that we had raised our children in and there was an emotional attachment with this home. Plus we had mixed emotions about selling. Darren quantified the reasons for selling and the price point with prudent information - but there was never any pressure. When we did pull the trigger to sell - the photos and the overall presentation of our property was above peer - we wanted to buy our property as it looked so good ;-) To add to complications, we were out of the country during the sales process. But Darren and his team made the process an amazing experience for us and within a few days of leaving, we received Darren's call with multiple offers. Highly recommend Darren and his team. All the yelp reviews speaks volumes as to Darren's skills and expertise. So enjoy his Blog too.

    • I have known Darren for several years now and has always been great to work with. He is very knowledgeable about all types of properties and situations. Most of all he is a South Bay native and having grown up in the area is a key asset as he possesses a strong network of friends and colleagues to get the job done with the utmost integrity!

    • Darren is knowledgable, professional, genuine, trustworthy and sets a new standard in customer service. Let me tell you why. The process: My mom (a home buyer looking for a second home in Santa Monica) and I spent the past 2 years looking casually at the Santa Monica and Venice market. Darren reached out via email after an online inquiry my mom put through. She, living in another state, depended fully on me to view properties which, with a busy travel and work schedule made it a very "casual" search. The minute Darren began communication with us, we were impressed with his quick follow-up, knowledge and wonderful people skills. He listened to what my mom was looking (location, budget, amenities) and from day 1, Darren was there to source information, provide insight, expertise and keep us abreast of the latest property listings within our filter of needs/wants. After two years of searching on and off, many, many home visits and open houses (all of which Darren met us for), we found THE home. Darren was patient, available and consistently helpful throughout the entire search. The Sale: Darren and his assistant Amanda were dependable and always on point. He guided and advised us through a complicated sale and ensured we had the best home inspector and resources in weighing the decision. He managed the contract quickly, efficiently and walked us through each step with quick follow-up and honest feedback. Closing on the House: Upon closing on the house, Darren and his team continued to impress us with their professionalism and efficiency. All paperwork was digitally placed on a USB stick with a keychain featuring an image of the new home. Multiple new keys were made and provided. A repairman was contacted with a list of all items needing attention and with Darren's assistance, walked through the new home to go over all outstanding items that had been discussed in conversation. He then followed up with a quote form the repairman and helped to facilitate the conversation thereafter.Darren goes above and beyond to ensure a smooth transition and continues to be a valuable resource in transitioning into the new home (while located in another state). He is someone I absolutely recommend if you are in the market for a new home or in need of an expert, honest real estate professional. I cannot imagine a better person or team.

    • I have worked with Darren Pujalet on numerous transactions from the viewpoint of a lender, for many years. His communication is clear, and he knows how to manage a transaction. Most importantly, from a homebuyers perspective, I have seen him bring street level knowledge to a buyer to help them get a home they desire. This kind of value added local knowledge is something a lot of realtors proclaim, but not all of them have. For Darren real estate is a full time job, and then some. He is always working or always on call. Real estate is 24x7, and so is Darren. He also brings a lot of technology and efficiency to each transaction, and most importantly, knowing times are always changing, he is always looking to change with them. I would never hesitate to recommend Darren to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate anywhere in the South Bay LA area.

      - Brian M Yelp
    • Darren is a delight to work with! He was my agent for both the sale of my property and the purchase of a new home. He really took the time to market my property in the best possible way. He also made great efforts to ensure that I got to see the best properties that met my requirements. Darren went to great lengths to represent my interests in both transactions. Darren is a person of extraordinary character and integrity and someone that you can really trust. He set such a high standard of professionalism and gave me such personal attention, that it would be hard to work with anyone else in the future.

      - Geri C Yelp
    • I have known Darren for many years personally outside of Real Estate prior to hiring him as my agent. I always respected his professionalism and hard work and now I have experienced it first hand while he helped me through the sale of my home. He is honest, follows through on all his promises and works extremely hard to get the job done. He cares and it really shows when you work with him. I have recently also referred him to close friends and he found them the perfect home. They were also very satisfied and so I will confidently refer Darren to anyone that needs help in finding a property and wants the best.

      - Tony D Yelp
    • I hired Darren to sell our North Redondo Beach condo. I met Darren when he sold a similar unit in our building a few years ago. Since then, Darren stayed in touch me to make sure I was up to date with what was going on in the market. Working in commercial real estate I was appreciative of his follow up. During the process of selling, from the first open house to the day that we closed, Darren was on top of everything. He was able to bring us multiple offers and we ended up selling for a great price. Overall we were very happy with both Darren and Amanda and highly recommend them!

      - Brian E Yelp
    • Darren and Amanda were extremely helpful and instrumental in pulling off our home purchase in Hermosa Beach. We contacted Darren while living in Singapore. He was proactive in finding us the perfect home, negotiating with the other agent, and dealing with a particularly difficult seller. Darren and Amanda were extremely professional; standing strong on our behalf and remaining very personable. They helped make this purchase much easier than it could have been. Darren communicated with three different contacts (in our family) that were located in two different time zones, and was still able to keep us in the loop while facilitating a smooth transaction. He helped pull everything together and low and behold...we have an amazing house that we love. Darren is still treating us like family even after our purchase is over and done with.

      - James C Yelp
    • I began my property search about 4 months ago when I started working with the Pujalet Team. I was looking everywhere from San Pedro to Redondo Beach to Torrance. After a few conversations, they helped me focus on the areas that meet my needs. I found a great place in Torrance and I'm currently in escrow. The team has been amazing to work with. They were very helpful in negotiating the price and have communicated with me consistently through out the process. I have already recommended them to several of my other friends.

      - Desi S Yelp
    • We had a wonderful experience buying a home with Darren! A friend of ours recently worked with him to purchase in Rancho Palos Verdes, so we knew going in that he was someone we could trust. What we found in working with Darren was that he was also great at communicating, very responsive & prompt, and extremely knowledgeable on the entire South Bay marketplace. We found it very reassuring working with a local agent who really knows the area and can advise and steer you on different neighborhoods. Once we started looking at houses, Darren (and Amanda) were great at setting up appointments, being flexible and focusing on what we wanted. Also, they were both so friendly and nice to our girls as we looked at houses. I liked that he wasn't afraid to give his honest opinion, and I never felt pressured. After we found the place for us, Darren led us through the whole bewildering buying process and was in constant contact. We did almost all the paperwork electronically, which was great. We also found that Darren was a great negotiator after the offer was accepted, when we had some issues going through closing. Another thing I should mention is that he has a great professional network, so we got lots of references for doing work on the house after we closed. All in all, working with Darren was a great experience. He runs such a professional operation that I won't hesitate to recommend him to friends and coworkers moving into the area.

    • I cannot thank Darren and Amanda enough for all the work they did to get us into our dream home in Torrance. Darren was referred to me through two different sets of friends and I think we owe them all a favor because it was a great recommendation. From the second you talk to Darren it felt like talking with a friend you've known for years. As first time home buyers, my wife and I didn't really know what to expect. Little did we know that actually finding the home was the easy part...what came after was the hard work, and this is where we were blessed to have Darren on our side. Throughout the whole process Darren was patient, informative, and a constant source of advice and guidance. He never pushed us and consistently went out of his way to help us coordinate everything from the inspection to estimates from contractors to advice on renovations. Darren knows the market very well, and it's clear he is a well experienced realtor. I'd be lying if I said the process of buying a home was easy, but having Darren on our side sure made everything go much smoother. We would definitely recommend Darren and his team for anyone looking for a home in Torrance, the South Bay, or anywhere else.

    • Darren Pujalet and Amanda Neely are the best team we could ask for in selling our Hollywood Riviera home. Moving on from a home that had been in our family for 60 years was a huge event for us, and they went above and beyond to successfully sell the home quickly and for a great price. From the beginning they made the whole process as smooth as possible. We so appreciate their support and honest advice which was available 24/7. They are solid, and have the confidence that comes from years of experience. Highly recommended!

      - Laurie C Yelp
    • I worked with Darren and team on a single family home rental in the South Bay and they made things quick and easy. He found a 2-year tenant, was dialed into the market, and knew exactly what would make the place attractive to a tenant. I would highly recommend Darren for any real estate needs.
