Darcy Elman
Zephyr 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

Joann's Customer Review (Attorney - Family Law)

I worked together with Joann when I needed an Independent Contractor Agreement for my consulting business.

Joann is very uncomplicated to work with, she is straight-forward and immediately understood what I aimed for. Beside that she took the time to fully understand what I needed, and used her broad legal knowledge and experience to reflect my needs in the document.

Joann's aim is to help her clients whatever they might face, she's passionate and sympathetic and it was a pleasure to work with her.
