Darrena Yehia

Darrena Yehia, a North Carolina native with a huge passion for the Triangle. She is the proud Owner/Broker of Home Sweet Home Raleigh!

She has been a “go-getter” since an early age and has always worked hard to accomplish her goals and dreams. She attended Campbell University where she became the first person in her family to graduate college!

She began a career with Chick-fil-A as a teenager and worked her way up with the company to become an Owner/Operator of her own franchised restaurant by the age 26. During her time with Chick-fil-A she won many prestigious awards for her profitability and maintained consecutive years of sale growth records for her restaurant.

After 15 years of serving in the hospitality industry, Darrena’s entrepreneurial spirit and passion for the community, lead her to a career in real estate. Her humble upbringing helps give her a platform to relate to many people in all different walks of life.

In 2016, she became a licensed REALTOR® and made the decision to go from franchise restaurant owner to real estate entrepreneur with the dream of building a team with the same passion for hospitality and high level of customer-focused service. Her brokerage, Home Sweet Home Raleigh, was officially launched in 2021!

Darrena is very passionate about serving her community. She has volunteered with numerous non-profit organizations, primarily focused on ending homelessness. She is proud to be a board member for the Raleigh Regional Association of REALTORS® Giving Network.

Darrena enjoys spending time with her husband Ramsey and their two fur children Miley & Peyton. They love to head to the coast and enjoy the beach! She is passionate about fitness and a self-proclaimed “foodie”! Her positive outlook and energy is contagious and you can always find her looking for the next great challenge and adventure as she lives her life to the fullest!

Thank you for trusting Home Sweet Home Raleigh for all your real estate needs!

Community Involvement

Darrena knows what it is like to grow up with housing insecurities. Looking back to her childhood, she is grateful for how the generosity of others impacted her quality of life. Home Sweet Home Raleigh is a proud supporter of local non-profits. Together we can help end homelessness! A proceed of all sales are donated to the Realtor Giving Network and help fund local nonprofits throughout the Triangle.

One of my proudest life moments was purchasing my own home which inspired me to go into a career in real estate. Now, I find great joy in helping others achieve their goals of home ownership and housing security.
