Darrena Yehia

Darrena Yehia, a native of North Carolina, is deeply passionate about the Triangle area. As the proud Owner/Broker of Home Sweet Home Raleigh, she brings an unwavering dedication to her community and clients.

From an early age, Darrena has been a “go-getter,” relentlessly pursuing her dreams. She made history in her family by becoming the first person to graduate from college, earning her degree from Campbell University.

Darrena’s journey led her to a successful career with Chick-fil-A, where she ascended to become one of the youngest franchise operators in the organization at just 26 years old. Throughout her tenure, she garnered numerous awards for profitability and maintained consecutive years of sales growth records.

After 15 years in hospitality and foodservice, Darrena embarked on a new path, transitioning her entrepreneurial spirit to the real estate industry in 2016. Recognizing her passion for listings and an innate knack for design and staging houses, she became a licensed REALTOR®, dedicated to helping sellers showcase their properties to their fullest potential.

After years of honing her skills and building relationships in the real estate market, Darrena realized her dream of launching her own brokerage. In 2021, Home Sweet Home Raleigh was launched, a testament to her unwavering commitment to providing top-notch service and fostering meaningful connections with her clients.

Darrena’s humble upbringing serves as a foundation for her genuine connections with people from all walks of life. She is deeply passionate about serving her community and is proud to serve as a board member for the Raleigh Regional Association of REALTORS® Giving Network, contributing to initiatives focused on ending homelessness.

In addition to her professional endeavors, Darrena finds immense joy in her roles as a wife and mother. She and her husband Ramsey welcomed their first child into the world in May 2023, adding immeasurable joy to their lives. On the weekends, they love to head to the coast and enjoy fun in the sun as a family along with their two dogs, Miley & Peyton. Darrena 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 entrusting Home Sweet Home Raleigh for all your real estate needs. Darrena looks forward to the opportunity to serve you and your family, guiding you on your journey to finding your dream home in the Triangle area.

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.
