Get To Know Me

Darren's passion for travel and exploring culture has led me all over the world. Upon earning a degree in business from Indiana University, he has lived in Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Spain, and California. He is finally back home in Chicago! Darren currently lives in Uptown with his wife Naoka, son Lui, and our little Shih-Tzu RumChan.

Before working in real estate, Darren owned and operated a successful biomedical engineering company. Transferring his skills to real estate has been a very natural fit for him. He enjoys wearing different hats throughout the day and appreciates the diverse experiences that real estate has to offer. Darren prides himself in providing first-time homebuyers with the starting point experience.

Darren went above and beyond. I know it sounds cheesy, but he really was awesome during the entire process. I never felt pressured or uncomfortable anytime I needed anything. Will be referring him in the near future!

Simply put, Darren is an incredible real estate agent. I feel lucky that my husband and I serendipitously met him. He is patient, a great listener, and honest. But he's a great negotiator too, and a huge plus to have on your side of a deal. I highly recommend Darren.

Darren was awesome in this process, especially fielding all of my questions as a first-time home buyer. He was patient and knowledgeable and took me to every property I asked about. We ran into some minor bumps in the road (none that were his fault) and he helped me manage those with ease.

Darren was the perfect agent for this first-time homebuyer who didn't know much about the whole process. Literally took less than 2 months for me to get my new place straight from showing. Would be very willing to work with him again when I purchase more property in the future. I would also highly refer him to any friends or family looking to purchase homes soon.

When it comes to customer service, Darren has got that on point. He made the whole process so much easier and less stressful by communicating with you like you are a friend and a customer at the same time. He made sure that everything was taken care of and was also very responsive whether it be by text or phone call. Thank you very much Darren for everything you did. I hope we cross paths again.

We had a wonderful experience working with Darren. Our home search lasted about 6 months and Darren has been patient and professional throughout. Our situation was somewhat unique and Darren helped us navigate through it all until we closed on the home of our choice. I can't say enough great things about Darren: knowledgeable, always available to answer our questions, and overall fun and pleasant to work...
