For Darren Winston, real estate is not a career, it’s a lifestyle. As such, he is always primed to lend his clients an open ear and firmly believes in educating his clients to ensure they make the right decisions to achieve their investment goals. Darren serves his clients with an honest and attentive approach to real estate. Since entering the industry in 2003, he’s emerged as a leader and disruptor, regarded for his highly effective negotiation tactics, the successful facilitation of hundreds of multi-million-dollar transactions and a consistent rank within the top 1% of agents nationally.
As a former business analyst and marketing executive in new media companies in Seattle, Los Angeles and New York City, Darren offers an unyielding understanding of financial and communication strategies. These fundamentals, together with a background in International Business and Psychology at Ithaca College, form the base of Darren’s successful position as a real estate advisor in the world’s most sought after properties. Darren’s global business perspective led him to align with the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand, where he opens the door to over 1,000 offices around the world—a paramount benefit to his 40% international clientele.
When not in the office, Darren may be found spending time with his family at their home in Clyde Hill, teeing off at the golf course, playing a round of tennis, or lending his time and resources to Habitat for Humanity and the local PTA. A second-generation Seattle real estate agent, Darren is also passionate about imparting his father’s life lessons to his children and community: never quit, you can do anything, and practice makes perfect.
