Darren Winston has been a top-producing real estate agent in Los Angeles for over sixteen years achieving acclamations for being in the top 1% in the country. Prior to working with Sotheby’s International Realty in Beverly Hills, he ranked among the top 5% of all John Aaroe agents throughout Los Angeles and previously worked with Coldwell Banker Previews International.
With years of experience selling luxury homes in one of the most sought-after real estate markets in the world, Darren has acquired a precise knowledge of some of the most high-end neighborhoods in Los Angeles including Hollywood Hills, Sunset Strip, Los Feliz, Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Bel-Air and West Hollywood. He has been privileged to represent a large and diverse group of buyers and sellers both domestically and internationally – many of whom he has developed close bonds with and has represented in numerous transactions.
For Darren, agent-client relationships are a priority. It was a lesson he learned early on from his father, a long-time Seattle realtor. As a child, he often spent his Sundays alongside his dad sitting open houses. It was there, while watching his father interact attentively with clients, where he learned the intrinsic value of trust and communication in business. Following in his father’s footsteps, Darren always keeps his clients’ best interest at heart, making sure each and every one of them walks away with a memorable experience and a successful sale. Whether it is listing their property or finding their dream home, Darren relies on his dependable local market knowledge and expertise and his proven negotiating skills to produce the best results.
Before starting his career in real estate, Darren worked as a business analyst and marketing executive for new media companies in Seattle and New York City. It was then that he gained a vast understanding of financial and marketing strategies. Darren graduated from Ithaca College with a major in International Business and a minor in Marketing and Psychology. Those years of study shaped his global perspective of business and he went on to implement those lessons into his job as a realtor, which resulted in him successfully attaining a 40% international clientele.
Combining the invaluable lessons he inherited from his father, his unparalleled real estate knowledge, his strong interpersonal talent and networking skills, his marketing savvy and his love for Los Angeles, Darren has successfully negotiated hundreds of multi-million dollar transactions throughout his career and continues to be a leading-name in the industry and a force to be reckoned with.
Now a father himself, he instills the same values passed onto him from his father to his young children. Married for nearly 20 years, he and his wife are avid travelers who enjoy attending film festivals such as Cannes and Sundance. Darren loves to hit the golf course and tennis court, many times with his clients, and as a proud long-time Los Angeles resident with in-depth knowledge of the city, he has great insight on the best unknown restaurants in town and the best schools in every neighborhood.
