“I made my entrance into the Real Estate world after realizing that I could make a difference in the lives of others through working my hardest for them. With over fifteen years of sales experience behind me, I know the importance customers place on ethical practices and integrity of sales individuals. More than not, my past successes were based on my relationship with the customer, not directly on the product I was selling. And it wasn’t always selling them the product that earned me their respect; it was giving the right advice. My career in real estate sales actually started in high-tech sales over ten years ago. In that environment, you learn quickly what it means to work hard for the client and have a realistic goal in mind. Combining those skills and my personal commitment to developing trusted client relationships has proven invaluable in Real Estate. I get tremendous personal satisfaction in helping others achieve their goals and as I look back on my career path, I would have to say that because of the catered type of service that real estate provides for the consumer, adding the web site “DarryllWhaley.com” seemed like the right solution to give back to my clients while at the same time, providing a personal touch that speaks to every individual. I look forward to many years ahead in the community both as a Realtor and a servant.”

Philanthropy and Community Service
Darryll wrote the book entitled “Breaking Barriers” first published in 2000 and then again in 2004. Breaking Barriers was written with the purpose of reaching struggling young-adults. The book reveals the true-life story of a young man who faced adversity throughout growing up. The books main emphasis is around the change that is possible when self-reliance is shed and a true brokenness of ones self enters the heart. Only then can there be a change. The book has served as a good platform for helping families who have a strong willed adolescent, or a child who has strayed from the nest.” If you are interested in receiving a copy, just ask Darryll.
