Darrin is not only a consummate real estate professional who can answer any real estate question or challenge we throw at him, he is also a terrific person who goes out of his way to make sure you are taken care of as a client.
To whom it may concern, I wish to commend you the person of Darrin Stumpf. My experience working with Mr. Stumpf through the multitude of steps involved with the finalization of my new residence in the Greenwood neighborhood bears merit– it reflects a remarkable effort. After he and I saw far past a dozen potential places to occupy, we landed at the door of my final choice just hours after it had listed. He made the offer immediately, then set into motion our task of closing in 3 weeks to accommodate my schedule. When the litany of problems arose from the buyer’s side he negotiated an advantageous rental contract that allowed me to rent the place while the seller cleaned up his unrecorded liens. That move saved me a bunch of extra work and expense, plus the stress of moving my boxes twice! After relating my harrowing adventure to a friend that had lots of real estate buying and selling experience, he expressed to me how the type of deal I entered into could only be pulled off equitably by a bonafide real estate expert, there were several ways for the buyer to get stung in the transaction, but when I showed him how Darrin structured it and got signatures everywhere necessary, he exclaimed that Darrin is a sharp detailed genius, and wow about how many extra steps he made to deliver the deal. How lucky I am for his expertise, tenacity, and professionalism, and for that of his team. From knocking doors to the final escrow paper re-creation due to the seller’s liens, Darrin transformed a rather stressful situation into a pleasurable experience. I will say this too–This is a man to trust to move mountains in order to find you the best possible fit for your own situation, then to pleasantly work whatever hours necessary to complete the transaction– and all with a smile. Thank You Darrin! Dustin L.
Darrin helped us with the purchase of a vacation home earlier this year, and was incredibly patient as we explored some different options. Additionally, his experience was critical given some of the complexities of our particular transaction. With Darrin’s help, we ended up with the right house at a good price.
Darrin Stumpf was invaluable in helping me to find two well-located, multi family rentals that “pencil.” Darrin’s knowledge, high energy level, resourcefulness and careful attention to detail is impressive. I was faced with the difficult task of relocation rental property. The transaction was a complex one involving two 1031 exchanges. Darrin responded with enthusiasm and was very effective. I had many detailed questions which Darrin responded to in a effective manner. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Darrin Stumpf. I will call on him for future real estate investment needs. Thank you, Darrin!
To Whom It May Concern, I am writing to share my real estate experience with Darrin Stumpf. In August 2003, my husband and I sold our small (very small) home in Fremont, and purchased a new home in Greenwood. Darrin was our selling and buying agent. We couldn’t have been more pleased with our experience! This was our first sale and purchase, but Darrin was very patient with us. I was even driving myself crazy with questions, but he never even batted an eye! He explained how things work, and really walked us through it all. I really feel that he went above and beyond the call of duty. We sold our home in less than two weeks, which shocked us, only because the house is so small (about 600 square feet), we thought for sure it would be a tough sell. Not for Darrin! The marketing he put together was amazing and obviously successful. We fell in love with our new home right away. Darrin was great with communicating with the then current owners for us. We got the house for an amazing price, and have been very happy there for more than a year now. Darrin works very hard for his clients and always goes that extra mile. He is efficient and we felt so comfortable working with him. We highly recommend Darrin Stumpf as a real estate sales associate. Neil and I plan on trading up again within five years, and it’s safe to say who we will call!
It is not an exaggeration to say that Darrin has been a life line to me. I had the good fortune of finding Darrin after trying to sell my home for 2 years following a very difficult divorce. Darrin definitely goes the extra mile and takes the time to talk things out and offer support and encouragement. I so appreciated that and it is a rarity I have found. I also so appreciate Darrin’s honesty – I was very leery about the whole real estate industry after what I had gone through and it was relieving and comforting to know that there are still honest, caring realtors. Darrin is the best.
At a time in my life when I didn’t know if I was coming or going, Darrin definitely went the extra mile for me. He was not only professional, but caring – and I greatly appreciated that.
Darrin has assisted me with several real estate transactions. He is always a professional, and he is an agent who actually listens to my needs and desires. As a new resident to the Seattle area, he was a great source of knowledge regarding the different neighborhoods in this great city. I would not hesitate to hire Darrin again when it is time to sell my property and purchase another. I highly recommend him to anyone.
Darrin came to me in an unusual way. I was trying to sell my condo near greenlake as I was being relocated to Oregon for work. My current realtors marketing plan was to continuously lower the price or turn the unit back into the bank. My mom called his John L Scott office and asked for the best agent. They recommened Darrin. Frustrated I decided to rent out my unit but if I decided to sell I would call him. A year later I called and he listed the unit and began marketing it as well. I came back to Seattle the first weekend it was on the market and joked with him about selling it the first day it was on the market and I would take him out on the town. I had just finished playing golf with my dad and he asked what I would take for it. Not 30 seconds later I got a call from Darrin saying we had an offer coming in. The offer was for more than we were asking and we had it closed in 30 Days. If I was to ever buy or sell a house in Washington again I would certainly use Darrin and I encourage everyone else to do so as well. Simply, Darrin looks out for you and gets the job done.
Darrin was wonderful to work with. He was very patient with this first time home buyer and always available to answer any questions I had. He understood exactly what we were looking for and made everything as painless as possible. I would use him again, without hesitation, for any of my realty needs.” Eric S.
“Darrin was my former landlord. I knew from that experience that he knew real estate. Years after I was a tenant of his, I called him up and asked for what was essentially impossible criteria for a condo. Just days after I asked him for what should have been impossible, he came back to me with exactly what I was looking for. Then, as my financing fell through, he recommended me to a sharp mortgage broker while he worked hard to ensure my offer went through. I cannot recommend him enough. Had it not been for his hard work and sharp skills, I would not have been able to own the condo of my dreams at a price I could afford.
