For years, I have been helping clients buy and sell residential and investment properties in Sonoma, Santa Clara, Marin, and San Francisco.
I joined Compass for their outstanding reputation in real estate in The Bay Area and nationwide. I understand that assisting clients with their residential transactions is essential to their personal and business portfolio and I aim to exceed their expectations every deal. My personal creed is integrity, and fiduciary care, at the highest level of competence.
I have owned and sold several businesses and I am a leader in business development, understanding the current market, and strategic negotiations. These rare skills are highly valuable when helping clients with pricing, purchasing, negotiating terms of sale, and acquisitions.
Personally, I am passionate about art, architecture, design, and love going to see dance and theater. My husband and I split our time between Marin and San Francisco. I have a passion for gardening, and being out in nature hiking. I grew up in Rhode Island but always knew I would live in Northern California. I support several nonprofits and part of my commission goes to giving back to our underserved communities in The Bay Area!

★★★★★" As first-time home buyers, we really had no idea how much time and energy was required to tour houses, write offers, secure financing and ultimately end up in our own home. Darcy walked us through every step in the process and made sure that we were well informed and comfortable with each step before moving on to the next. She devoted her time to us (we literally toured houses every weekend for 3 months) and was always reachable by phone, text, and email at any time - she even worked for us and stayed up until 3:00 a.m. while on personal vacation in Ireland just to make sure our offer was the first one submitted for a highly desirable home. She constantly went above and beyond for us, and always had our best interests at heart.
While the process was not always smooth, Darcy never let us get discouraged and ultimately helped us find our perfect home that checked all the boxes and then some. We highly recommend Darcy not only for her high degree of professionalism and extensive real estate knowledge but also for her energy, her tireless work ethic, and her positive can-do attitude.
Darcy is a fantastic agent! Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or looking to upgrade, Darcy will give you all of her energy to ensure that you are protected, confident and excited about your next home purchase! "

★★★★★" I highly recommend Darcy Elman as your Realtor, she's fast with preparing your home for sale. She knows reliable Gardeners, painters and contractors that are ready to stage your home. Darcy paid a lot of attention to having an open house every weekend. Darcy is professional and knowledgeable and always available for communication. Darcy saw what needed to be upgraded at her first look at the house, so it would be appealing to the buyer."

★★★★★" I want to thank Darcy Elman for her wonderful real estate services in selling our project. She took the necessary time to fully listen and understand the appeal of the project and was able to bring out these points through her marketing. Her incredible creativity brought a definite special presentation during the open houses and events. Her expert knowledge of the luxury market really helped as well. She knows how to target her efforts to bring out the right potential buyers. She demonstrated to be very dependable, friendly and hardworking. I was delighted to have her a part of the transaction. She treated the listing with the highest priority and it showed with results. I would highly recommend Darcy and look forward to future transactions with her."

★★★★★" Darcy was such a pleasure to work with. Searching with an infant nearly an hour away from your home can be difficult. But Darcy was efficient. We started our journey with her by looking at 6 homes in one day. This first-day exploration, which was no joke, allowed us to scope out neighborhoods and price per square feet. But Darcy didn’t dawdle. If it was clearly not our style we were in and out, she wasn’t trying to convince us otherwise. After the initial day, Darcy pre-screened properties as we narrowed our search so we didn’t waste our time crossing the bridge.
Once we found our new home Darcy was realistic and insightful during negotiations. She put us first throughout and protected us through the process. She checked in frequently and walked us through the process.
Not only is Darcy a great realtor she is also well connected. She saved our deal by connecting us with a new mortgage broker who was able to pull off a very quick deal.
I highly recommend Darcy for your real estate needs. Not only is she a great realtor she a great person and fun to be around. "
