Darin Provost - Client Testimonials

Darin was exactly what we were looking for in an agent. The home we wanted was a short-sale, and closing on it involved serious time pressure, coordinating multiple agencies, and no small amount of creativity on his part. Darin put getting us what we wanted 1st, and his commission a distant second. At no time did we doubt that he had the skills and experience to make it happen. Adding to that, he is a great guy with an engaging personality. We left the whole experience feeling like we had made a new friend. I have not hesitated to recommend his services to anyone looking for an agent. - Shaw

Darin was a pleasure to work with in every respect--we were lucky to have found him! - West

Darin was always prompt, quick to find answers to our questions about homes he found and helped us tour them with with good knowledge of the positive and negative attributes of each home. He was amazing at showing us ways to compare and rule out situations that would not be to our advantage. we would highly recommend him to assist in your search for a home that is perfect for you, as he did for us. - Jeanne

A friend referred me to Darin to sell my home. I owe her!  Darin knew the market, priced and marketed it effectively, and sold it fast, making it easy to get my money (always the key things). I listed it the Monday before Thanksgiving, and moved out February 18th!  Almost more importantly to me as I was selling my family home of many years, he helped me prepare and stage my home. He knew exactly which things needed to be touched up, fixed, painted, cleared and ready to show in two weeks.  Darin even helped me retouch the woodwork (with his special, secret method), making my home look like new. I wish I'd known his secret earlier so I could have enjoyed it while I lived there!  Darin is personable, friendly, knowledgeable, supportive. And very effective.  Oh - and after he did such a great job on my residence, I had him sell my rental. He took great pictures, helped me market it appropriately, and sell it fast - completing the sale easily after I'd moved out of town and across the country! - Judy

Darin helped me purchase my first home in Portland. At that time it was a seller's market and he watched out for me to make sure I got what I needed. Later when I was getting ready to purchase another home, there was no question about who I wanted to represent me. Darin is a professional expert when it comes to real estate. I highly recommend him. When I get ready to buy another home, Darin will be my realtor! - Jim

Having bought and sold real estate in Alaska, Oregon, California, and Nevada over the last 27 years, I have dealt with many agents and brokers, but Darin has been the best of all. From the first day I spoke to Darin he was professional, knowledgeable, helpful, and his advice helped me greatly. Darin tells the truth and his opinions are sound. He was always there when I needed him. But the best thing about Darin is that he became a friend. - Jeff

Darin helped us negotiate the purchase of our first rental home. His expertise and knowledge of investment properties was extremely valuable to us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home. - Jen

You won't find a more knowledgeable, responsive, or helpful realtor than Darin Provost. He really knows his stuff and, on top of that, he's friendly and has a great sense of humor. Seriously, the whole package. - Alisa

He went beyond the routine to make me feel secure in the way I was proceeding. - Dave

Sure and prompt sales in a good market are common; Darin's combination of professionalism, affability, and strong work ethic promptly sold my property in a challenging, soft market at a return I was quite pleased with. Moreover, too many brokers and companies expend more energy promoting themselves as much or more than the properties they sell . . . not the case with Darin – he marketed my property with a comprehensive and detailed knowledge, assuring potential buyers their questions were answered clear and certain. - Phil

Our realtor Darin was an angel in a very sad time as we were in need of speed to find and move our daughter. Well, he helped in so many ways, was so kind. He is on the ball at every turn --thinks of things only he would know of. We felt very blessed to know this young man and to have his help. If and when we sell that property he will be the man for us. I would be happy to spread the word for him, he will treat you as if you were his family. - Lynda

We worked with several Realtors before meeting Darin and he was hands down the BEST! We live out-of-state and purchased a property in Oregon. Darin led us smoothly through the transaction and we were able to close in less than 30 days. Darin is very knowledgeable, he has great communication skills and most of all he is honest and reliable. We'll definitely use him again for future purchases and we would refer him to anyone without hesitation. - Joyce

I have never had a real estate agent work as hard as Darin did to find the perfect house for me. Not only did I get a "Larry house", I found Darin to be a very honest person with a great deal of passion for his work… and after a few trips to Starbucks with him I discovered Darin also had a passion for Breve Latte's that matched my own! - Larry

Darin helped me sell a home after the economy dipped in 2009, which wasn't an easy task. I got a good price for it and he made the process very simple, taking care of all of the small details and doing so very efficiently. If you want a qualified broker you can trust, Darin is it. - Mike

Darin knew exactly when to put our condo on the market in a very tough time for condo sales. His pricing advice was exactly right, not to much and not too little. The condo sold for full price in three days with three offers. We were thrilled. He also helped us find and buy another home. The seller's realtor was very difficult to deal with and Darin handled it very professionally. His negotiating skills saved us $5000 on the purchase. He protected our interests throughout the purchase process. We couldn't be happier. - Susan

When I decided to downsize, Darin helped me to accomplish what seemed impossible in a slow market; my house was sold and I was in an adorable new home in under three months! - Julie

He also helped me buy a home.  This was a short sale and Darin did a very good job taking me through the very complicated and lengthy process. - Deborah
