“My wife and I recently sold our house in Maryland. After interviewing many real estate agents, we met with Darin and immediately knew he was different. This was our first experience selling a house so naturally, we were anxious and confused. Darin was patient when explaining the process and   confident in his ability to get us through. From day one, Darin kept us informed and at ease. He gave us the complete financial picture, down to the $20-$100 level, up front so we wouldn’t be surprised with expenditures later on. We were expecting to wait a few months to show, sell and settle our home. Darin shattered that expectation, selling our house within 6 days of listing. Darin confidently negotiated on our behalf and smoothly handled EVERYTHING, all the way to closing. I can not imagine having an easier time selling a house and there is no way that could have happened without Darin. There is no doubt in my mind that we found the best agent that Maryland has to offer!”

                                                                                                                                  – Ben B

“I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Darin Rich. I am a divorced mom who, after almost 6 years living outside of Maryland, decided to sell the MD house. I would not have been able to handle this, either logistically or emotionally when things didn’t go as hoped, BUT for Darin  Rich’s involvement. So four quick points about my experience with Darin. First and foremost, Darin is a professional. He knows his business, his markets, and has a wealth of experience in this field. Second, he truly has his client’s best interest in mind. You never get the sense that his primary interest is his own financial interest, or to minimize his inconvenience or work burden. Third point. He has a strong work ethic. I can’t say enough about how much I appreciated that trait. He was knowledgeable, responsive, and paid great attention to detail. And, fourth, Darin has integrity. It’s so rare nowadays to work with service providers that operate with a sense of integrity. But Darin truly cares about his clients and about the integrity of his work. I am eternally grateful for his representation and his service. I am in the service provider industry as well (not real estate), and I will strive to incorporate these traits that Darin displayed with me with my own clients. They should feel as reassured that I am representing their interest as I was with Darin representing mine.”

“Darin is great! My wife and I are first time homebuyers and we worked with Darin for a little over a year. He was very attentive, friendly, and helpful through the whole process. He was great at explaining the nuances of each house and helped us make informed decisions when it came time to make an offer.

Over the past year Darin has become a friend whose opinion I value and trust. For anyone that’s reading reviews like I was last year, go with Darin. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!”

“Darin Rich is a realtor who is dedicated to building relationships with his clients. He provided timely and expert knowledge when we were ready to sell our home and downsize after 21 years and he guided us gently and firmly through each step of real estate process. Darin is extremely dedicated to   his work and, most importantly,  he always made us feel like his most important client.

He gave us accurate advice every step of the way, accommodating our wishes and guiding us toward a successful transaction.”

“We entered the seller market with some concerns and with little knowledge of the process. All of our concerns were put to rest as Darin took a great deal of time explaining the process in detail, answering questions and completing some steps for us. Darin followed the sale from beginning to end  with great attention to detail and always taking care to keep us informed and up to date. Because of Darin the sell of our home went without problems and was a positive experience. If you want the security of selling your property, knowing it is being handled by a caring, expert real estate professional I would highly recommend that you contact Darin Rich.”

“Darin went out of his way to help make this sale happen. We were out of state sellers and Darin did a lot of ground work for us because we were not able to do any of the local things to get the condo ready for sale. Drain contacted contractors etc. and monitored them to be sure the last details were complete.”

                                                                                                                                          – Allan R

“I have sold two properties with Darin and both experiences were excellent! Darin went above and beyond to coordinate with renters, with contractors for updates and repairs, and with the title company to ensure the closing process is smooth. Darin would even send me reminders of little things that  I needed to do, which I really appreciated. With all the things to think about while selling a house, Darin was always on top of all the tasks, could answer any question I had no matter how detailed, and he was extremely easy to work with. Thanks Darin!”

                                                                                                                                           – Margaret E

“We just sold our townhouse in record time, thanks to the good advice that Darin provided. I would recommend working with him to anyone who asked. His understanding of the current market conditions was very beneficial.”

“If you read Darin’s overview, he describes himself as passionate, dedicated, genuine, and honest. Throughout the process of selling our home, we found Darin to be all of those things and more. He was very patient and took time to ensure we understood every detail and that we were fully educated  on all aspects of the process. Darin communicates regularly and is responsive when contacted. He makes you feel as though you’re his only client and that all of his time and attention is focused on your needs. Selling a home and moving can be stressful. We found the sale of our home to be the easiest part of our move, thanks to Darin’s efforts and dedication. Don’t look any further. Call Darin now if you have a need!”

“Darin was always on time all the times that we had an appointment to look the houses, very professional and polite. He was always very flexible to work according my schedule.

He walked me through the whole selling process step by step always offering sage advice! He is very approachable and will answer any and every question – if he doesn’t know  the answer he will find it quickly and follow up immediately! He continually gave me updates and fought for me when needed. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Darin Rich!!”

“Working with Darin to sell our property while being across country was wonderful. He was very professional, hard working and always accessible (even with the time zone difference). Darin always had our best interest in mind and made sure that the process went easily and smoothly. He was our eyes and ears throughout the process and we couldn’t have asked for anyone better.”

                                                                                                                                                         – Bnafsha S

“Darin helped us sell our home and look for/purchase a new home. He was involved in the whole process of helping us to make our current home ready to sell with his expertise of the current buyers’ needs. He was able to negotiate with buyers’ agents to get us the best possible deal. We had a  wonderful experience both selling and buying our homes. Darin knows what to look for in terms of contractors, lenders, and inspectors to help make a sound purchase for our family. Darin is personable with other agents and buyers. We cannot recommend him enough to all our family and friends. If you want a professional, knowledgeable, and friendly agent, Darin is your agent!”

– Julie M

**********

“Darin goes above and beyond to help out before, during and after the sale. He is very knowledgeable on real estate issues and gives honest and valuable opinions on housing and neighborhoods. He listens to what you want as a buyer and really goes the extra mile to help you find a house that you can  call home. Very lucky to have found him and definitely recommend him to anyone needing an agent to work with whether buying or selling. Darin is honest and hard working and really cares about his clients. We had a problem a few years after the purchase of our home with the extra lot included in the sale. The listing/selling agent said it wasn’t her problem and would not help but Darin as the buying agent went above and beyond and helped us settle the issue quickly. Because of this we are deeply indebted to him and will gladly use his services again should the need arise.”

“Mr. Rich is the consummate professional in all aspects of the real estate business. His attention to detail, timely follow-up to resolve issues and forward-thinking to anticipate potential problems is impressive. Our sale went smoothly and he was able to negotiate a very good deal for us. I  would highly recommend Mr. Rich to anyone wishing to see their home.”

– Andrew A

“Very positive! The sale of my dad’s house was done long distance, and Darin did a super job, up to and including coming over to clean the house after the people who were hired to clean did a poor job. My dad had used him for the sale of a rental unit a few years earlier. Darin offered great advice  and had a lot of contacts for getting needed work done. Darin was persuasive in getting me to spend $50,000 in a remodel of the house. Had I not done the remodel, the house might have sold for $250,000. Instead, with the remodel, it sold for $345,000. Pretty good return on the money. I don’t have any more property for him to sell for me, but if I did, Darin would be the guy. Very pleased with him.”

“Darin is extremely professional, personable and responsive. I have very much enjoyed working with him and look forward to doing so in the future as well.”

“Darin was great!! He was very professional and responsive during the whole process. He didn’t put any pressure on me to purchase a property. It was about finding the right house for me. After finding the right property Darin was able to negotiate closing costs and seller help for fixes noted in  the inspection. Every time we visited the property he would point out the important details and explain everything he was looking or checking for. He has a wealth of knowledge and that’s helpful to a first time townhome buyer like myself. He made the process very smooth and comfortable. I will definitely use again.”

“Darin is the type of guy who calls you after the sale just to say hello. My wife and I met Darin years ago and when it was time to sell our house we interviewed him. He was nice and very down to earth so we hired him. He told us what to do to get our house ready for sale and together we agreed on a  price. 6 days later the house had a very strong offer on it $2000 above asking price. Then our search for our new house began. Half way through we had a falling out with our banker and Darin really stepped up. In days we had a new banker and were told what to do to fix the problem. Now very behind with only 5 weeks to closing on our house Darin showed us the house we wanted. He never showed us houses we could not afford and was very mindful of the things we needed. the house was exactly what we asked for. Now the offer, he showed us ways to write the contract to insure we would get it. He also worked out things with our new owners so we would not have to live in a hotel and everything worked out. I am very grateful to Darin for all his work on getting us this house. I have already recommended him to several people.”

“Darin provided guidance to us throughout the selling process and was always available to take our calls. I would highly recommend him! When our buyer was having some financing issues, Darin helped us understand and helped facilitate getting the issues resolved quickly.”

– Johnathan C

**********

“Always a professional. Answered all my questions with patience. Available when needed. Kept me in the loop on the progress of the sale. Stayed in constant contact with me through texts and emails. Established timelines and dates so there was no guesswork to the process. Never left me  guessing or wondering what the next step was.”

– Gerald F

**********

“I had the best experience with Darin selling my house. He gave me great recommendations about the pricing and what I need to do to get the best price for the house. He has sold my house in 2 weeks at the asking price. Darin has a very effective marketing system. He works very hard for his  clients and keep clients informed about the potential buyers and the market place in your area. You will be very pleased if you hire him!”

-Tatiana A

“We’ve known Darin Rich for about 4 years and have found him to be of the utmost in character, knowledge and professionalism. He has a wonderful sense of humor and is a gentleman of the highest degree. He’s very knowledgeable regarding all types of technology and the internet. He’s just a  wonderful guy in every way. I would not hesitate to recommend to recommend him as a realtor for a moment as he has made our experience in buying and selling properties a pleasurable experience.”

– Barry H

**********

“Despite living on the other side of the country, Darin worked with me seamlessly to sell my townhouse. When it didn’t sell during an abbreviated period in the quieter fall season, Darin was so committed to customer service that he even took on managing my property as a rental until the busier  spring season. Lo and behold, after placing the house on the market in the spring, we got a fair offer within two days. Darin’s honesty when I needed to hear it and ability to listen to my concerns made this transaction a pleasure.”

– Richard E

**********

“In this line of emotional and very personal business, you need someone who will time and time again be there representing you your family and your new investment. Darin doubles up with all of that and makes sure you get your dream house and passes on lots of knowledge when purchasing your 1st or in  our case 2nd home. Darin also knows a large number of hand selected profecionals to work on your financial side and others like home inspectors, etc. the process couldn’t be more family oriented yet very precise when handling your biggest purchase ! Thanks Darin!”

– Paris and Grace

**********

“It has been a true pleasure to work with Darin Rich. He has been as knowledgeable and helpful as anyone I have ever known. Most of our communication has been by telephone, email or text as I live in a different city from the house that was being sold. It is hard for me to believe that Darin and I  have seen each other face to face only once. I recommend Darin Rich very highly.”

– Ingrid B

**********

“Darin has helped our family to both buy a home and sell a home. I interviewed 4 Real Estate Professionals. Darin was by far the most responsive to all requests for information and opinions. He gave us very practical information about what repairs to make, when to put the house on the market and  how much our asking price should be. We had many interested buyers look at the house and we sold it for more than the asking price. I highly recommend Darin as a Real Estate Professional. I would recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.”

– Nancy B

**********

“Darin is fantastic to work with. He is extremely accommodating, knowledgeable, and patient. I was a first time home buyer and Darin was very thorough with his explanations of the process and eliminated all fears of my first home purchase. He will approach every step with a smile and always makes  you the first priority. He has your back all the way until you have that dream house’s key in your hand. Simple put…he is the best, I talk about him all the time and recommend him everyone in the market!! You definitely will have a top notch experience!!”

– Liz T

**********

“Darin was great! When we were looking he got us into places right away and helped us make the right offer. We were buying a house on short sale and he really worked for us to get it done in a timely fashion. He was there at each step and made sure everything was perfect. When we buy or sell again we will definitely go with Darin!”

– Michelle S

**********

“Meeting Darin Rich was one of the greatest things that had happened in my journey, buying my first house. Darin is a very professional, very detail oriented, experienced and mindful realtor. He used his experience/ knowledge and exerted 100% effort making this process less stressful and more  enjoyable. Any time he observed a potential problem he quickly communicated it to me with transparency. He always provided viable alternatives to deal with whatever problem came across. Darin always had time to listen and answer questions/concerns, time to come and show properties which I greatly appreciated. I always felt strongly supported by him. When it comes to negotiations, he was on my side all the way. He is a great human being and I was so lucky to have him as my agent. I strongly recommended him as you realtor, you won’t regret!”

– Ruty P

**********

“Darin is an amazing real estate agent! He is extremely hardworking and puts his clients needs above any commission or fees. When looking at homes, Darin selected homes that were in the area and price range that I was looking at, rather than waste time going for a “big sale.” If I needed any  additional information from another agent or specifics on a property, Darin was able to get it to me very quickly and had great insight on the local market and what to look for within a home. During the negotiation and closing process, it was Darin’s expertise that enabled us to get the number we were looking for and was there every step of the way. I felt like Darin was representing our needs as buyers, and not his agency or even the sellers needs (which has happened to me on a few occasions.) Darin is an exceptional realtor on all levels!”

– Curtis F

**********

“Darin knows his clients. He understood our needs and was always responsive. He took our concerns to heart and was always there to explain everything along the way. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any real estate transaction.”

– Travis F

**********

“Darin was everything a seller could ask for in a real estate agent. He provided wise advice, and did so in such a way that he made me want to follow that advice (yes, it is possible that someone on earth might know something I don’t know). He kept me informed of events in the process, and he  managed it over the phone, over two time zones, without waking me up even once. He managed my meltdowns with grace and kindness, understanding that I was selling a house that had been in the family over 60 years. If you need strength, wisdom and caring in your real estate agent, please contact Darin Rich immediately.”
