Founder | Broker
A Bay Area native and a third-generation Italian American raised in a family of builders and architects, Darcey Arena truly has real estate in her blood. Her three decades of industry experience and deep knowledge of the diverse cities and communities that make up Silicon Valley enable her to successfully match buyers with the home that fits their individual needs. Darcey is known for her keen negotiating tactics, unmatched dedication to her clients, and above all, her personable demeanor—which have resulted in long-term customer relationships and a business built almost exclusively on referrals.
Previously, Darcey worked as an events coordinator for Apple, where she honed her marketing skills and learned to juggle multiple deadlines and different personalities. But her true passion has always been real estate and architecture, and she loves sharing her knowledge of a home’s unique craftsmanship and character with her clients. Darcey has spent time working towards her Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®) designation, as she has a passion for working with seniors to ensure their individual needs are being met.
Currently residing in Willow Glen, Darcey has three amazing children. Christian, 23, is a recent graduate of CSU Los Angeles, and he’s following in his mother’s footsteps with a job in commercial real estate. Nataly, 20, is a junior at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, majoring in agricultural business. And Julian, 14, is a freshman at Willow Glen High School who’s trekking through distance learning while sneaking in a video game here and there.
When she’s not practicing real estate, Darcey enjoys traveling, visiting museums and galleries, and collecting art—namely modern and pop art pieces. She will do just about anything to hear live music and loves spontaneous times with friends and family.
