When you excel at what you do and reach the top of your field, people want to know: How did you attain such a high level of success?

For Darlene, it has been persistence, hard work, and a gift for intuiting her clients’ needs – along with providing solutions for her clients at every step along the way.

Darlene has been the #1 sales broker in Santa Fe and the state of New Mexico since 2010, based on sales volume according to the Santa Fe Association of Realtors MLS (SFAR). In 2022 she was named the #1 Individual Broker nationwide within all of Sotheby’s International Realty. Darlene has also earned the impressive achievement of being the #1 Individual Broker in the entire history of Santa Fe Real Estate by sales volume, according to the SFAR MLS.

There are many reasons Darlene has attracted so many buyers and sellers over the years, and not only because of these noteworthy accomplishments. It’s more than simply her first class service and attention to the smallest detail. Or her superb staff of industry professionals serving her clients’ needs with efficiency and excellence.

Darlene has risen to the top of her field for the most important reason: she truly listens to her clients and facilitates solutions with exceptional ease, personal care, and unrivaled success.

What makes Darlene’s achievements in the field of real estate even more impressive, is that virtually every other broker in the top 0.5 percent nationwide is from a major metropolitan area – cities such as Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco or Miami. In comparison, Santa Fe has just over 80,000 residents.

Darlene’s innovative and savvy marketing solutions combine cutting edge technology with best-in-class customer service. She has invested millions of dollars in sophisticated, relevant, and targeted marketing efforts to advertise and showcase her clients’ properties. And this is above and beyond what her clients receive in exposure from Sotheby’s International Realty’s marketing. Combined with her depth of experience, her extensive knowledge of the Santa Fe area, and her swift responsiveness to her clients, it’s not surprising she leads the field in sales.

“I enjoy helping my clients find that perfect home in Santa Fe… giving each of them the information and knowledge to make an informed decision, so that they truly know they have something special in the Land of Enchantment. My clients really appreciate my willingness to listen, to communicate and that I respond quickly.”

Nurturing a large network of industry and professional contacts in every aspect of real estate, Darlene knows that her success is about listening to her clients, understanding their needs, and working toward achieving their goals with integrity. Real estate is her passion and she believes in clear, open and honest communication, both with her clients and the party across the table.

Our property sat on the market for months under another company without offers, underpriced and neglected. Very frustrated, we called Darlene who quickly worked her magic! She had the home expertly staged, photographed and re-priced. The property had several offers, well above asking and sold in 3 days. Darlene is sharp as a tack, understands the market, has a tight team and absolutely saved our day!

– Leisa F.

When we decided to put our property on the market, we interviewed several agents, as many people do. From the outset, Darlene conveyed an air of confidence and capability that was heads above the others. Her responsiveness is unbelievable, reachable virtually anytime you call. There is absolutely no question in my mind that her insights and guidance made the sale of our property possible. We would hire her again in a heartbeat.

– Dale L.

Darlene did an outstanding job selling my house. The photos and videos were excellent and were posted on a Wednesday along with the listing, and by Sunday I had three offers all over the asking price. I have owned 11 homes over the past 50 years and Darlene and her team provided me with the best experience I ever had. I highly recommend her.

– Jim A.

We’ve worked with Darlene over the past several months as we bought a new home and sold an existing one — a nerve-wracking experience in the current market. Our confidence never wavered, though, as “Team Darlene” had everything covered. Communication was fast and accurate; professionalism carried us day after day. We recommend Darlene Streit whole-heartedly!

– Roxanne D.

In the span of 8 months we sold our home and warehouse property and bought a new home with Darlene. The process was effortless with each of the 3 projects! Darlene replies immediately, even on evenings and weekends. If there was a question that required immediate answers, Darlene or a member of her team texted or called. It’s very difficult to find a realtor that provides services at the level and quality of Darlene and her team.

– Shane R.

We hired Darlene to sell our home and the experience was stellar. From the first meeting, Darlene and her team were incredibly attentive and professional. Darlene was available anytime we had any questions or concerns and her team made sure every aspect of the transaction when smoothly and seamlessly. This has been the best service experience I have had in a very long while. Thanks so much to everyone at Team Darlene Streit!

–  Kate W.

Without a doubt, Darlene is the VERY BEST REAL ESTATE AGENT we’ve ever worked with. Her knowledge, professionalism, intelligence, and presence is superlative. And perhaps most importantly, she’s an excellent communicator and kept us informed of every detail of our selling process. Thank You, Darlene!”

– Bill S.

I was extremely pleased with the way Darlene handled my house sale. She found a buyer within hours of my listing with her. The listing price they suggested was accepted by the buyers. Darlene and her staff were

highly efficient, and to top it all off, the entire team was so pleasant and would immediately respond. I cannot praise them enough for their work. Not one thing went wrong!

–  Steven F.

Darlene and her team are by far the most professional and service oriented real estate team we’ve ever worked with throughout a lifetime of buying and selling homes. Darlene and her team were amazing through every step of the process. They were completely on top of the schedule of tasks and the service was stellar – everyone on the team was friendly, happy to help and never minded our questions. We highly recommend this group.

–  Julie S.

Selling our house through Darlene was a great experience. We were immediately reassured that she ‘got’ our house and that she would find the right buyer for it — and that’s what happened. She was absolutely on-it 24/7 and highly professional. The turnaround time on emails and texts was often a mere seconds, and she and her staff led us through the sale and each of its requirements in a friendly and co-operative way. It really was a terrific experience.

–  Margaret M.

Excellent! There isn’t a superlative radiant enough to describe our experience with Darlene and her staff. Every aspect of selling with her was superb. Communication was wonderful: we were always informed and our questions were always addressed immediately. We are so glad we put our trust in Darlene and everyone connected with her.

–  Mary Ellen D.

Succinctly stated, Darlene is the consummate professional. She has an unmatched depth of knowledge of the real estate market and a keen sense of its direction. She is a brilliant marketer and is always on point with her analysis. Among her many strengths were her consistently quick response to texts, calls, and/or emails and her well coordinated professional ancillary team. It is without hesitation that I unconditionally recommend her.

– Dr. Frank S.

Darlene and her team are amazing, they helped me through a difficult time where I needed to sell my home because of health issues. They were always available to me, kept me informed, always had a great attitude. They made a hard situation for me seamless and easy.

– Angela J.

Darlene Streit is a force of nature in the world of real estate! She was pleasant, professional, remarkably responsive, and totally results-driven. She’s very gifted at what she does and it was an absolute delight to work with such an organized, high-energy broker. Since results speak for themselves, here are mine: she managed the staging and sale of my home and sold it within a week. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
