What people are saying about Darren...

Darren helped me get through not only a very difficult time in my life, but also helped me navigate an extremely competitive and challenging real estate marketplace. 

With his services he provides a vast amount of knowledge, experience, and resources; setting you up with extensive search tools, conducting research and market analysis into your potential purchases, constantly communicating with seller realtors, setting up appointments and meetings, and giving solid, no nonsense advice on the various aspects of real estate that one encounters. 

And on top of all that, Darren brings warmth, empathy, friendliness, compassion and a great deal of understanding to what can be (and was) a very emotional and stressful experience in a person's life. 

Thank you so much Darren for all your hard work and efforts on my behalf, and for all the kindness you displayed throughout this process. I could not have gotten through it without you!

Buying a house can be complicated at the best of times, and during these absolutely crazy market conditions it can very quickly feel impossible and often dis-heartening. 

Our agent, Darren Opsahl, walked us through and gave us a clear understanding of these unusual market conditions. He also helped us find some buying opportunities (where few exist) and negotiated on our behalf with enthusiasm and professionalism. 

We had a seamless house buying experience (during challenging times) with Darren and would 100% recommend him when you are looking to buy or sell your home.

~ David & Tu

We highly recommend working with Darren Opsahl! We felt like we were in great hands every step of the way. 

He was patient and an excellent listener and helped us narrow down our search criteria so that we were able to find our dream home. He never pressured us and offered insightful commentary as we moved through the buying process. He was responsive when we needed it and made sure all are lingering questions were answered. 

We would absolutely work with him again.

~Jess & Olivia

Darren Opsahl is a truly wonderful realtor. What I appreciated most about Darren was his level of preparation. Darren was always more prepared than the agents representing the potential buyers. I found this gave me an advantage. Darren was on-top of all aspects before, during and after the sale of my home. We aligned on the value of my home and were able to achieve this. 

In my life span I have bought or sold real estate on 17 different occasions using seven different real estate agents. I state without hesitation that Darren Opsahl was a superior agent than the others and thus provide a strong recommendation for any individual considering him.

~ Wade Bayne

We had the good fortune to work with Darren when selling our home and purchasing a new one. Darren is an an exceptional Realtor, who took time to listen and understand our needs. Darren found us a beautiful home that suits us perfectly. 

Darren made the journey enjoyable, exiting and such a positive experience. He truly understands the market and researched to provide all the right information to help us make informed decisions. 

We highly recommend Darren for his professionalism and responsiveness. Darren was a pleasure to work with and look forward to future opportunities with him.

~ Jody and Darrel Elliot

I was impressed with Darren’s professionalism, enthusiasm, and knowledge. Darren was very responsive to calls, emails and questions and was easy to work with. He was also very patient and supported me throughout the entire process. 

Once the decision was made to sell my place it all came together very quickly, and we sold within 4 days of my place being put on the market. I highly recommend Darren and would use him again as my Realtor.

~ Amanda Wolchak

Darren Opsahl was an excellent choice of realtor for us. 

We had a great property to sell but met a very unusual time in the market. Darren clearly loves his job and was meticulous in monitoring every detail of our listing, day by day. He backed up his advice and opinions with data. He was strategic with marketing choices and connected us with great people to execute the finishing touches we wanted. While many similar surrounding properties remained on the market - ours SOLD!!

Darren’s enthusiasm for his job and his clients shines through and he has the goods to back up that passion with performance. His attention to detail serves his clients well. He was a pleasure to work with and we happily consider him a friend.

~Christine Alexander & Rob Alliston

We couldn’t be more appreciative of the level of service from Darren. 

Buying a home from a another province and during a pandemic was painless as Darren gave us all the information, advice and guidance we needed to make the right decision when it came to buying our home. We couldn’t be happier! 

From start to finish, he was AMAZING!!! We never had any worries working with Darren. Incredibly detailed-orientated, professional with so much energy and enthusiasm throughout the process. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! A++!!!

~Cam Johnson & Soya Oh, Toronto, Ontario

"Darren was fantastic at uncovering our needs from both a selling and purchasing perspective. A master at understanding the details and how they will impact the sales process, he ensured that we were comfortable and informed every step of the way. 

We've moved multiple times over the years and I can honestly say that Darren was the best realtor that we've ever worked with."

~Daryn & Jennifer Medwid

"Anyone even toying with the idea of a real estate purchase in Vancouver needs to talk to Darren! He helped us find the perfect home, was a consummate professional throughout, dug deep into all the devilish details and kept the boat steady, straight and steaming full speed ahead the entire time. Top it off with him being an all around nice guy and pleasure to deal with made it a top drawer experience indeed. Call Darren!

~ Darren Plested - West Vancouver

"Darren was amazing to work with with! He is very knowledgeable, thorough, and kept us in the loop throughout the whole process. This was our first home purchase and Darren made it a stress free experience! He is passionate about what he does and is very responsive. We sent a million emails and texts and he always got back to us right away. 

We highly recommend Darren, you will be in good hands with him!"

~Vicky Binstead

"This was a learning experience as this was my first time purchasing a townhouse. Let me tell you, this guy knows his stuff!!! 
Darren made it easy, quick and fun. Very knowledgeable and his experience speaks for itself. If you want someone to explain every last detail to you, he’s your man!!! Easy to work with, always replies to your phone call, text or e-mail in a very timely manner. Professionalism comes to mind. Great job and thank you for the help along the way!!! 

Cheers :) Kevin Potvin

"We really did have an amazing experience with Darren. He spent a ton of time helping us find our home and he provided expert advise when it came to making the deal. He was always professional and his follow up and response time was impressive. Best of all, Darren still found a way to make the entire experience exciting and fun, despite the stress which can accompany buying a home. 

We really enjoyed working with Darren and would highly recommend him." 

~Jason and Tina Gray

"Darren helped me and my wife buy our first home in Burnaby this year (after approximately 3 month active search) and it's been nearly a month since we moved in to our new home. If there was a ten star, I will give him 10 out 10 stars as his guidance and support in finding and securing a home has been excellent. 

He was very approachable, excellent communicator, strategic negotiator and had a great sense of humour which was really needed as a house searching can be very stressful and time consuming. He has great knowledge in the metro Vancouver area extending to White Rock and Langley.  We really appreciated his local history and expertise as we only recently relocated to Vancouver from overseas. 

He is also very quick at responding to our queries via text message, call or email (even while he was on his vacation). 

I would definitely recommend him to my friends, family members and colleagues if they are looking forward to selling or buying a new home. 

Darren is a go-to guy in Vancouver! 

Thanks again for being a partner for our journey to find a home in Vancouver!!"

~Steve An & Victoria Lee  

"Darren is an incredible realtor who cares immensely, is knowledgeable, thorough and hardworking. He may be family, but we wouldn’t have chosen anyone else to sell our home and help us buy our new place. Thanks so much DO!"

~Jennifer Opsahl

"We had a wonderful experience with Darren at Darren Opsahl Real Estate. We sold and purchased with Darren and it was a flawless process. He is highly organized and knowledgable in his field. He was on top of everything and we felt supported throughout the whole process. We have a little one, so moving can be stressful and tiring. Darren understood our needs and really helped us along the way. 

We would recommend Darren to anyone who is looking for a professional, organized and pleasant selling and/or purchasing experience. He found us the perfect home!"

~Ashley Yost & Josh Sukow

"I recently worked together with Darren on the purchase of a townhome in the Cloverdale area. It sure didn’t take long for me to figure out that I made the right choice to partner with him! 

Darren demonstrated expert knowledge of the real estate process, he knew the local area and was keenly aware of the ever changing market and its implications. He was patient, addressing all my concerns and questions, however minor, as he so obviously respected the significance of the issues to me. I very much felt like I was his first priority! 

Darren, demonstrated tenacity and was meticulous to all details of the entire process. It is without question he is great at his job! 

I highly recommend Darren as a realtor and most definitely will use him for any future real estate business that I get involved in."

~Bruce Reid


I can’t thank you enough for the time and effort you made in selling my home and helping me find my new wonderful townhome. Your professionalism, easy communication style and hard work was so helpful for me, especially because of my limited experience. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling or buying a property. 

Please feel free to use me as a reference should the occasion arise. 

Thank you again and I look forward to having you over to see my new place once I’ve settle in."

~Sincerely, Laura Fraser

"It took me 12 months to come to the decision that it was the right time to sell my home, but when it came to choosing my realtor I had no difficulty at all. I could not have made a better decision than to go with Darren Opsahl. 

Darren put a lot of effort and thought into promoting my listing. He spent hours answering my questions, discussing comparable listings and explaining everything he would do to get my house sold as quickly as possible for the price it was worth. I was so impressed with the photos he had taken and the promotion material he distributed around the area. 

Darren made himself available to me whenever I had questions, and worked tirelessly throughout the entire process. I have bought and sold 5 houses over the years prior to working with Darren, and the effort he put into the sale of my home was head and shoulders above every prior realtor I have worked with. 

Darren's hard work and professionalism paid off and my house sold quickly in a market that rapidly slowing down. I was so impressed that I immediately recommended him to a friend who also decided to have Darren sell her home. He did a fabulous job for her also and I know he is the first realtor she recommends to anyone looking to sell or buy. 

With great confidence I can say that you will not find a more thorough, hard working, professional and friendly realtor than Darren. He truly enjoys his work and cares about the families that he helps through the process. I have never before used the same realtor twice in a row, but Darren is now my only choice of realtor in the future. 

Thank you Darren, for all you did."
