"Working with Darrell Burns was unlike any other home purchase I’ve experienced

- Vernan Crawford

"Darrell is a great broker to work with. He’s incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and has integrity. He made our purchase fun and our luxury home in Newport coast was a cash offer and Darrell was able to close the entire transaction in a 3 day period. Since then I have referred to him to 3 other clients."

- Matthew Abramsky

"I've just finished refinancing my home with Darrell, for the 2nd time in the span of a year...and Darrell was the one who got me into this home in the first place! We were working with a really tight schedule, too

- Aileen Santos-Redman

"I can’t say enough good things about working with Darrell Burns on personal real estate transactions. I have worked with Darrel since 2014 on a number of transactions, including buying and selling a condo and detached home in Orange County as well as refinancing two mortgages. Darrell’s professionalism and enthusiasm for his work are on display 24/7. As there are always challenges and obstacles with any transaction, Darrell zeroes in on them and dispatches them quickly and efficiently, and always with a smile. He also has a knack for identifying a client’s greatest concern and doing everything he can to mitigate it to always create win/win situations. I highly recommend Darrell."
