Spend five minutes with Linda Darer and you’re sure to find that your life is enriched. Her care, dedication and zestfulness is immediate and infectious. It is this effervescent nurturing and gentle demeanor that makes her such a perfect fit as a licensed Real Estate Salesperson. 

Mrs. Darer brings her extensive experience of working with both buyers and sellers to each client interaction. Over her many years of service Linda has cultivated long lasting and deeply trusting relationships with her clients. As a resident of Westchester since 1979 with deep ties to the community and the neighbors in it, she has unparalleled knowledge of Rye, Harrison/Purchase, Rye Brook, Port Chester and White Plains. Her clients’ listings have included some of the most lovely properties throughout lower Westchester County with some of the most compelling stories - something that she relishes most.

Linda’s philosophy is a simple one: “Family, trust and value are the core of my business. As a native New Yorker, I am committed to providing exceptional service on behalf of my clients, and for me that means always being honest. I don’t sugar-coat anything. If it’s going to work, it’s going to work. I will always offer my honest, informed opinion - it’s what my clients deserve: a person who is forever in their corner, who will work tirelessly on behalf of them and their family— which, if I do my job just right, I like to think includes me, once the immediate needs are met.” 

Mrs. Darer attended the University of Buffalo and obtained a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work from Hunter College. She met her husband while working as a psychiatric social worker at Metropolitan Hospital. A native of Venezuela, he was an intern at the time. 

A true citizen of the planet, and in keeping with a love of wanderlust, her social work career included a private practice in Caracas where she lived for one year before moving to Rye. She also has a large contingent of family in Toronto, Ontario — adding to her diverse cultural fabric. 

It is this background in social work that ultimately lay the ground work for her career in real estate: leveraging her ability to listen, understand, problem solve, provide insight, and ultimately solutions. She has been a full time agent since 1986 and takes pride in being available...

It is this background in social work that ultimately lay the ground work for her career in real estate: leveraging her ability to listen, understand, problem solve, provide insight, and ultimately solutions. She has been a full time agent since 1986 and takes pride in being available and enthusiastic about meeting client needs. She always takes the time to answer questions, familiarize you with the market, and guide you through the closing process. One of her great joys is bringing buyers and sellers to the closing table while making the experience a rewarding one. Her love for helping people, combined with her penchant for organization translate perfectly into the client experience. 

Since making the move from the hectic pace of city living to the tranquil environs of Westchester County, she has raised two children and has become a local expert in not only the schools, services, and marketplace of Westchester, but the lifestyle as well. “I love to work with people relocating because it means I get to share my love of this remarkable area. Every time I get to introduce someone to these enchanting towns, it’s like I’m doing it for the first time. And because I believe so passionately in Westchester, I have assembled an expansive network to contribute to local businesses and provide my clients with recommendations to help them live their best life - from attorneys to caterers, babysitters to pet sitters.” 

Linda has had the benefit of watching clients evolve over the years and while technology has changed, and market demands might fluctuate, her commitment and the way she conducts business is largely unwavering. It is this consistency that has led both buyers and sellers to return to work with her over and over again. 

Her proven track record of success has led to training and development for her fellow agents as well. She is a frequent guest and facilitator of Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty’s training center, The Imagine Lab® .

Linda enjoys cooking, entertaining and volunteering, serving as a member of the Women’s Council of Realtors (Westchester Chapter), as well as My Sisters’ Place in Westchester. She formerly served as a board member for her synagogue (Temple Israel Center) and on the boards of The Rumsey Hall School in Washington, CT and The Solomon Schechter School of Westchester. She is also a former alumni/parent interviewer for The George Washington University.

When she’s not immersed in real estate, she can be found exploring all things local and appreciating her surroundings - especially the solicitude of Westchester’s shoreline and beaches.

Testimonials

Linda sold me my first house in 2011 and I've worked with her ever since. She is honest,well informed, and hard working. You can always trust that she has your best interest at heart.

KM

Linda has been of invaluable help in our search for houses in Rye. Her knowledge is extensive, but what made her special to us was her caring approach. Linda's approach goes well over and beyond her duties and she takes care of every aspect and detail. We could not do without Linda!

Christian and Chrystele

“Linda Darer is an experienced realtor, and she did a fabulous job in helping us find our new dream home as well as selling our previous home. We worked with Linda for well over a year searching for the perfect next home in the Rye Brook/Purchase area. She got to know what we were looking for and was patient and honest every step of the way as we continued to evaluate our options, ensuring that the home we ultimately bought would be the right one for our family- at the right price! When it came time to list our home, Linda made sure we staged our home properly, and prepared effective promotional materials. As a result, we quickly received two offers. She helped us navigate through the process, dealt with any buyer issues that arose, and was a true advocate for us. Her years of experience as a realtor were evident, and she is a pleasure to be around. We have recommended Linda to family members and friends (all of whom had successful transactions), and we highly recommend Linda Darer to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”

NC & MC Rye Brook, NY

"We say with a great pleasure that LINDA DARER is a highly attentive Real Estate Agent for any situation buying or selling. She is HONEST and her advice always works. Linda has treated us almost as if we were her only customers and that makes her to be our first choice to buy or to sell. We are pleased to recommend her because she always comes out with a deal that is good for us and makes the seller or the buyer happy."

MG & AG

"Thank you for handling the sale of our townhouse...this past spring. Your professionalism and experience in helping us stage and competitively price our home greatly contributed to its quick sale. Three days after your open house we had three good offers that led to a quick close. I only wish we had listed with you sooner rather than trying to sell it on our own. Success in the current real estate market is not easily attained by the amateur and definitely demands tried and true pros like you. We will heartily recommend you and your firm to any of our friends and family looking for a quick sale at a fair price."

EH & JH

"Working with Linda Darer was a pleasure. We found her to be honest, friendly and very professional. Her extensive local Real Estate experience and contacts with the community was most helpful in our home search. We were thrilled with our home and the process of buying it was made seamless because of Linda. I wouldn't think of using anyone else when we move again."

MBL & JL

"Linda was a joy to work with. She took her time to intimately understand what my blended family's needs were and found us the perfect house without adding any pressure. I would highly recommend her to anyone!"

SS & GC

"Thank you, Linda, for finding us our dream home! Your ability to narrow down the search to THE house that checks all our wish list boxes, the frequent updates, quick responses and your very pleasant, flexible and friendly way of working was truly enjoyable!"

LO & MO

"Linda is an absolute pleasure to work with. She does her homework to make sure her clients have all the information needed to make an informed decision. Linda has made the process of buying a home totally seamless, which is not an easy feat. She is smart, diligent, and personable and we would recommend Linda to anyone looking for a fantastic real estate broker. We appreciate her so very much!"
