About Darcy
Client satisfaction and happiness drive Darcy Gamble’s success. Focused on your bottom line, Darcy negotiates your win. Darcy is empathetic, and that sensitivity fuels her intensity as your advocate and advisor.

In 2000 Darcy began investing in real estate and rehabilitating older homes in Colorado. Years later she moved to Arizona where she sold high-end homes in North Scottsdale, Carefree and Cave Creek.

Darcy and her husband Greg welcomed a daughter in 2007 and a son in 2008. They live happy full lives together in downtown Menlo Park.

When not working as a Realtor Darcy can be found on the pool deck watching her children play and her husband coach water polo. She loves to read, hike, watch foreign dramas and travel internationally.

Finding a realtor is like online dating. You must go with your gut or get "set-up" via a referral from a friend. Most of Darcy's business is from referrals and repeat clients. She has a way of making you the most important part of the buying and selling process.

"When we finally decided to sell, I began doing my research and spoke with different agents. Darcy immediately stood out as the agent who would look out for our best interest; she made it clear that her role was to advocate for us to the best of her ability. I am glad I listened to my gut because Darcy completely exceeded our expectations.

Selling a house can be stressful, and there are so many unknowns. We were very fortunate to find Darcy. She was not only professional, highly responsive, and a true expert; she listened to our needs and walked us through every step of the process. Her transparent communication, forward-thinking, and ability to strategize are her key strengths. In short, she was always on our side, working hard to ensure a smooth and successful outcome. If you are looking for a trustworthy and reliable real estate professional with an amazing work ethic, Darcy is your agent!

"Darcy did an excellent job selling my house and I recommend her highly! I can't say enough good things about her! Not only did I get top dollar for my house, she made the process very smooth and even enjoyable!

Selling my house seemed overwhelming to me and I wanted a realtor who I could trust. I wanted a realtor who was successful, who was experienced, who knew Menlo Park and who valued me as a client. Darcy was all that and more.

Darcy is super easy to work with. Her rolodex (or electronic equivalent!) is filled with any name you might need - from painters to landscapers to pest inspectors! I thought that the process of selling the house was going to be difficult but she made it painless from my end!

Darcy is truly a professional and I feel very fortunate to have had her as my realtor. Now I feel very fortunate to have her as a friend!

"You will not find a better realtor than Darcy Gamble! We used her for both the selling of our house and buying of a new home in Menlo Park. She was attentive, extremely hard working, organized and truly a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge of the market and connections in the community was invaluable. We were so fortunate to partner with Darcy throughout the process and now consider her a friend." - R.M.

★★★★★
"We have bought and sold many properties over the years, but Darcy is by far the BEST agent we have ever worked with and as a result we will be using her exclusively for all our real estate needs in the future. As a bonus, Darcy has a fabulous large referral network of contractors, suppliers and service providers that we have used extensively! Darcy's passion for helping her clients and knowledge of real estate is second to none in the Bay Area. You will not find a better agent and real estate friend - particularly in the challenging Bay Area market!" - J. Cole

"Ms. Gamble was our realtor for the purchase of our last two homes. In fact, we found Darcy when she was showing a home nearby, and we were so impressed with her professional presentation of that home that we decided to work with her in our search for our first home. My husband and I found that she listened to our needs, was well prepared in our viewings and supported us above and beyond during the purchasing process. Because of this positive experience, we sought her assistance again with our second purchase." - C.M.

"We met Darcy at an open house one day and it was all uphill from there! Darcy is the most professional, empathetic, knowledgeable, and computer savvy realtor that we had ever worked with. She is very generous with her time, funny AND fun to be with. She can show homes and make sense out of everything she shows you even if the client can't. She showed us homes we would never think to visit; she could transform a questionable space while you were looking at it; she knew what was going on in the neighborhoods we visited; she was knowledgeable on politics and renovations in the area; and extremely great on negotiating a solid deal. I love our home.... but would never have given it a second look if not for Darcy. Not only is Darcy a wonderful Realtor, but she became a very good friend." - W.C.

★★★★★
"Most importantly, Darcy is just fabulous to work with -- she's energetic, driven, resourceful and sharp. We trusted her completely, and knew that she was acting as if she was buying the property with us. We intend to recommend her to anyone and everyone looking for a new home in the Bay Area." - A.A. and W.S.

"If you value honesty, integrity and professionalism, Darcy is the realtor you are looking for. We bought our first beautiful house in a very competitive San Carlos market. Before working with Darcy, we were working with other agents who seemed to be more focused on themselves. The importance of having a trustworthy realtor on your side can not be understated.

Darcy was extremely dedicated to our needs. It was obvious from our first meeting that Darcy was willing to put in the time and effort to ensure we had a successful outcome. Darcy is very knowledgeable and a GREAT person to be around, she is up to date with what is going on around the market which was extremely important during the bidding process. Darcy went above and beyond in getting the purchase completed. Even after the house purchase, Darcy is helping us with referrals for contractors.

"We LOVE Darcy! I met her at an open house for one of her sellers in March 2019, nearly a year before we reached out to ask her to become our agent. My husband and I were looking very casually at that time, just to familiarize ourselves with the market. When it came time to seriously start looking, I picked her (I'd met other agents as well during open houses but hadn't really clicked with any of them).

I think in general we were extremely picky and very curious about the entire home buying process. I spent hours on the internet to learn more about the "gotchas," read through countless local news articles to learn more about the neighborhoods we were thinking of buying in, went on tons of reconnaissance missions to assess everything from the number of cars parked permanently on the street to the distance of the electricity poles and street lamps from the homes. We checked crime rates, looked at a flood maps analyzer for the next 100 years (check, the bay is sinking, you don't want to buy a house that's going to literally be underwater in 50 years), researched how much a 5g antennae lowers the value of a property (5%), and more. I know so many weird things I will probably never use again, like the lifespan of reinforced concrete (70-80 years). All that is to say - I'm probably one of the most neurotic buyers out there, and Darcy still impressed me.

You want an agent who will be honest with you, who will pull for you, and who will put your interest firsts. You also want an agent who is likeable, gets along with other agents, and is friendly with the community, because this is the only way you're going to get access to the kind of critical information that leads to a successful negotiation. We've won bids $100k under list price, and $50k under the eventual sales price (we had to break contract). Towards the end of the process, we knew the difference between overpaying, a fair price, and a steal, just with the information Darcy was able to pull out of the other agents, the list price, and local knowledge of the specific neighborhood we were looking in. Which brings me to my next point - you want an agent who is knowledgeable about the specific neighborhoods you're looking to buy in, and about the area you live in in general. Otherwise, you won't know if the sellers will consider your offer an insult or a godsend, among other things.

Darcy has all of these qualities, in addition to having unimpeachable integrity. My husband even gave her a catchphrase that she doesn't know about: "My name is Darcy, and I don't gamble."

We wholeheartedly recommend her, and wish her the best. The saddest part about getting our new house was not being able to hang out on weekends anymore. We hope to stay in our new house for a long time. If she hasn't retired by the time we're ready to sell it, we definitely plan on calling Darcy again for our next chapter :)
