My clients are “forever.” I started my career with Dunbar Builders, showcasing condominiums in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Realization set in that real estate was my calling to work with the public making their wishes come true. I call myself a ‘Doctor of Real Estate’ with 39 plus years of knowledge, experience and my optimistic attitude. I give it all back to my clients. I moved to Arizona in 1993 to build my new foundation of success. Working in the Adult Communities is my specialty in the North West Valley of Phoenix, AZ, as well as the single family homes in the surrounding areas.

I also was a Broker Owner of two offices; one in Illinois and one in Arizona. That led me to my final destination, “Long Realty West Valley”, with their fine reputation as being #1 in our area, as well as #1 with their winning website presence.

One of my many favorite memories is when my client was not able to get approved for his loan because he was short $5,000 of annual income. I called and spoke to his employer informing him that his employee did not know I was calling. The end result was my client received his $5000 annual salary increase plus the home of his dreams.

Bridge and cooking are my two additional pleasures. My friends call me the energizer bunny. I just keep going and going. That is because I enjoy what I do!

I have won numerous awards and have written articles about being on top. My finest award was when I received a plaque in 1987 stating that I ranked in the 1% of All Sales Associates in the United States (I still have that plaque!)

It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a $100,000 or $1,000,000 home. My services to you are the same.

Darlene Jaffee listed our home and also sold us the home we purchased. She was very professional when ever we talked or were in the office. She kept us abreast every step of the way with the selling of our home and the purchase of another...we called her the 'energy bunny'....she was so energetic and up on every detail...double duty. She explained everything and on top of things anticipating the next move...She is AWESOME. Thanks!

During the past year I have had to deal with the deaths of my mother-in-law, my father and my husband, handling their funeral arrangements and personal business. I am now tasked with caring for my mother who has dementia and I did not have the energy needed to get my property ready for ‘sale’. Without the kindness, ambition and professional courtesies extended to me by my realtor, Darlene Jaffee I could not have followed through with this sale. She was my voice of reason throughout this process. I am very thankful for her help.
