Reviews From Happy Home Sellers
Darrena and her team at Home Sweet Home are incredible to work with. Not only do they know the market and what it takes to buy/sell a home in this competitive Raleigh market as well as anyone, but they also make the experience as low-stress and enjoyable as possible. Darrena is unbelievably organized, responsive, and helpful without being forceful; she will never pressure you to do anything you aren’t 100% comfortable with. Even though it feels like Darrena is always “hustling” ... Read More
Darrena is the absolute best! She was timely, friendly, and all around awesome during the selling process. This was the first time I was selling a home (my first home) and she made everything super easy. She is super knowledgeable and always made herself available, day or night. 10/10 highly recommend!!
Darrena was fantastic!! I was a bit in a panic as I had my home listed with another agency and I was getting pretty rough feedback from prospective buyers.

Our son and his wife referred Darrena to us after she found them the home of their dreams. She is friendly, professional and confident. Within two days of listing our home it sold at full asking price. If you’re in need of an agent, we highly recommend Darrena. She will work hard for you!
Darrena helped my wife and I sell our home over asking price and put us in a new home under the asking price. We made money and saved money! Winning! A few set backs by the mortgage company but Darrena got us back on track for a successful closing.
Darrena made sure everything in the home selling process are on check and she followed up all the items in timely manner. I chose Darrena after interviewing couple of other relators out there as I found her as very flexible to work with and she always acted in a professional manner with no pressure anytime during the process. And she does have all the tools and tech to help you to support the selling process unlike some other realtors out there. Thank you Darrena for your five star service!

Home Seller FAQs
Below you will find some of the most frequently asked questions a home seller may have. Reponses are provided by the North Carolina Real Estate Commission.
I want to sell my property. What do I need to know about working with real estate agents?
If you own real estate and want to sell it, you may want to “list” your property for sale with a real estate firm. If so, you will sign a written “listing agreement” authorizing the firm and its agents to represent you as your “listing” agent in your dealings with buyers. The real estate firm must enter into a written listing agreement with you before it is allowed to begin marketing or showing your property to prospective buyers or taking any other steps to help you sell your property. The listing firm may ask you to allow agents from other firms to show your property to their buyer-clients.
What are a listing agent’s duties to a seller?
The listing firm and its agents must: promote your best interests, be loyal to you, follow your lawful instructions, provide you with all material facts that could influence your decisions, use reasonable skill, care and diligence, and account for all monies they handle for you. Once you have signed the listing agreement, the firm and its agents may not give any confidential information about you to prospective buyers or their agents during the agency relationship without your permission. But until you sign the listing agreement, you should avoid telling the listing agent anything you would not want a buyer to know.
What services might a listing agent provide?
To help you sell your property, a listing firm and its agents will offer to perform a number of services for you. These may include: helping you price your property, advertising and marketing your property, giving you all required property disclosure forms for you to complete, negotiating for you the best possible price and terms, reviewing all written offers with you and otherwise promoting your interests.
What is “Due Diligence”?
“Due Diligence” is the buyer’s opportunity to engage in a process of further investigation of the property and the transaction as described in the Offer to Purchase form within a period of time agreed to by the seller and buyer.
What is the “Due Diligence” Fee?
The fee, if any, is negotiated and paid by the buyer to the seller for the right to conduct “Due Diligence”. The amount of the fee may be influenced by matter such as the market for the property, number of days on the market, personal circumstances of buyer and seller, and the length of the “Due Diligence” period.
If the buyer is not satisfied with the seller’s response, or lack thereof, to repair requests, what can the buyer do?
The buyer can terminate the contract or agree to move forward without the repairs. ***NOTE*** Due Diligence checks on are non-refundable
