  • Gene helped me buy a home

      Gene helped us sell our first house and purchase our second. The experience was seamless. Gene helped us feel at ease during a very stressful period in our lives and it was a blessing. While there can be issues that come up during the buying and selling process, Gene handles those issues with the professionalism and care that will exceed expectations. Lastly, Gene guided us through the entire process. From first contact to move in, Gene was there leading us through the entire process.

    • Gene listed and sold my home

        Gene Darden is a first class agent. I have used him numerous times and would recommend him to anyone. He treats his clients as family. Gene goes above and beyond on every transaction.

      • Gene listed and sold my home

          Gene is hard working and diligent to the end. He knows what is important and is an excellent negotiator. I do not have to worry about any detail when I’m working with him. He will always be my go to when I’m in need of a realtor!

        • Gene listed and sold my home

            Gene worked really hard for us and was very easy to work with. Personable and extremely likable guy. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a realtor!

          • Gene listed and sold my home

              Gene was so helpful, knowledgeable, and responsive. My house sold in 4 days! I didn’t have to stress about anything because when there was any issue or problem he took care of it. He made the whole process quick and stress free. I would highly recommend him!!

            • Gene listed and sold my home

                He was so helpful having the repairs done at a fair price, having the home cleaned and donating items for my mother in law who recently had to move to an assisted living facility.

              • Gene listed and sold my home

                  Gene went way above and beyond our expectations. We moved to Wyoming shortly after the house was listed and Gene helped coordinate everything that happened after we moved. There were some “odds and ends“ type projects that took place during the sale process & Gene coordinated every one of them. Gene kept a great communication line with us and we never felt anxious or worried about anything. I would highly recommend Gene Darden to anyone who wanted to list their house , sell quickly, and not have to worry about the processes.

                • "From the first time we met Gene Darden I knew he was the right person to sell our house. He listened to our needs and concerns, presented a plan to sell our house and made us comfortable with him. At the end of the first meeting what hooked me was these words spoken by Gene I would be honored to sell your house for you! He didnt assume that because we called him we were going to automatically choose him and that humility is what sold me on Gene."David Farris (Seller)

                • I wanted to thank you for the great job you did in the listing. It was a long process probably because of the distinctive nature of the property. I felt that we got the best price we could. I think you approached the pricing situation wisely and with experience. I was in particular thankful for your negotiating skill. There were a couple of points where you kept the deal alive through skillful negotiation. We would gladly recommend you to anyone we knew that had a property to list. All the best, John & Katherine
