Darcy Elman
Pacific Union Real Estate

I have been buying and selling homes personally in the north and south bay for 15 years. I join The Atherton Brokerage as a result of Broker Roberta DiPrete’s outstanding reputation as a realtor and lawyer for the past 30 years. Roberta and I grew up in Rhode Island and bring years of experience as business owners. I understand that assisting clients in buying and selling their homes is one of their larger financial transactions and I aim to manage it with exceptional integrity and fiduciary care.  Although deals are personal in nature I treat each sale or purchase as a business deal with great attention to detail so clients are represented professionally.  I have owned and sold several businesses and I am a leader in business development, and strategic negotiations. Skills, which are highly valuable when helping clients with pricing or purchasing residential property. I enjoy the entire process of assisting clients, and together we will achieve your goals. I hold a BA degree in dance from University of Maryland, and have studied visual art, and design, as a hobby, for years.  I owned Laser Charge North A laser printer, and repair business, which was an auxiliary of Laser Charge San Francisco, owned by my brother. I assisted the sale of both businesses in 1995. In 2010 I opened Blue Iris Studio, Palo Alto.  Blue Iris offered Pilates, Yoga to the Silicon Valley community. I closed Blue Iris when my husband and I moved back to the North Bay in 2016. I have always followed my dreams when it comes to my personal or professional life.  As a homeowner it has been my passion to work on interior design with top designers as well as on my own. I currently live in Novato with my husband and I have a son who attends college in LA. License #02036062
