In quoting my daughter, Darnell is iconic and a blessing! In April 2019, my husband and daughter worked with Darnell to find our home in Covington. They basically had a week and Darnell was nothing short of a miracle worker and Godsend! Before they even went down, Darnell took time to look at every house we were interested in and gave us thorough pros and cons for each property. She listened to everything we like and dislike about houses and made sure to show us listings that met what we wanted. She took time to spend time with our 16 year old daughter to listen to her needs and wants in a house. Most realtors wouldn’t make the time but Darnell did and really made our daughter feel like she was a huge part of the process when it came time to decide on a house. One that Darnell found on their second to the last day and it is the perfect house! I would highly recommend Darnell to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Mandeville/Covington area!!
We interviewed several realtors and used Darnell to help us buy our home. Going into a market that we were unfamiliar with was daunting but she made the process easy. We were extremely happy with her level of professionalism, knowledge of local market, and negotiating skills. Would recommend using her for all your real estate transactions.
“THE BEST realtor I have had the pleasure of working with. She did extensive research prior to showing us many houses. She paid extra special attention to what we were looking for and didn't waste our time showing us properties that didn't meet our qualifications. She also made recommendations based on her many years of experience that were not in her best interest of making a quick commission. I highly recommend Darnell!”
Darnell Carter was knowledgeable of the market, easy to work with and thorough in her approach to getting our home sold. As a result, our home sold in just one day! Her follow up and feedback throughout the entire process made the sale of our home run smoothly. Her assistance was much appreciated.
"Thank you so much for seeing this go through and helping us make it happen. We could not have done it without you. If anyone needs a fantastic agent Ashley Hesni Ploue is amazing. Explained everything to me, extremely patient with me, and gave me so much support plus her super fantastic negotiating skills."
