Meet Darlene Streit

Top-producing Santa Fe realtor Darlene Streit epitomizes hard work, integrity, diligence, and dependability. Having lived in Santa Fe for more than three decades, Darlene is innately attuned to the housing market and has worked steadily to develop a top-notch, enviable network of contacts.

Before she relocated to Santa Fe, Darlene resided in places like India, Nepal, Italy, and Tibet. She attended high school in Switzerland, studied at Rome's most acclaimed fine art school Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma, and interned at Sotheby's Art Auction House in both New York and London. Darlene’s worldly experience gives her a competitive edge in the business.

When it comes to marketing, Darlene is light years ahead of the game. Through her suite of marketing initiatives, she invests more than a $350,000 annually into developing sophisticated channels and strategies, to make her clients' properties stand out. This investment is above and beyond the extensive marketing that Sotheby's International Realty also does to promote her clients' listings.

Additionally, Darlene has a state-of-the-art website, making it simple to get assistance with residential and commercial real estate. The easy-to-use interface includes specialized articles on Santa Fe and real estate, tips, custom search tools, market data, and more.

With a professional staff of dedicated real estate specialists to assist with everything from paperwork to inspections, Darlene is able to give personal, one-on-one attention to each client, practically 24/7. Darlene is fully committed to her clients and only hires professional staff who share her core values for extraordinary client service. You'll never have to worry about communicating with Darlene, as she and her staff are always quick to respond. Detail-oriented, courteous, and professional are just a few words frequently used to describe them.

This extremely successful business strategy ensures that every detail is taken care of for you, so that the entire buying or selling experience is as effortless as possible. Darlene knows your time is valuable, and these concierge services make the process one of ease and efficiency for you. It's another example of how Darlene creates more value for you.

Darlene has a proven track record for intuiting the perfect house for each client once she learns of their wants and needs for their dream home. What Darlene does best is genuinely listen to her clients. It might seem like a simple task, but not every agent understands how critical it is to clearly and deeply understand a client’s desires and the reasoning behind them. By understanding these specifics and forging genuine relationships with her clients, Darlene helps substantially narrow the search and save her clients' time, making the process efficient and rewarding.

Darlene’s combination of in-depth real estate knowledge, industry-wide connections, and dedicated staff gives her clients a unique advantage. Darlene will be there to support you before a home even hits the market until long after the transaction is finalized. Her proficiency and guidance take the work out of it for you, streamlining the process so it’s both easy and efficient.

In addition to her well-earned local and national reputation and impressive portfolio, Darlene has received several notable accolades. She has been ranked the No. 1 Santa Fe and New Mexico broker since 2010 by the Santa Fe Association of Realtors, is ranked the No. 22 agent in the entire country by RealTrends, and is the No. 2 individual broker nationwide at Sotheby's International Realty.

Within the luxury market—one of several areas in which she specializes—Darlene is the No. 1 broker in volume sold for homes over $1 million, and a member of Who's Who in Luxury Real Estate.
