My passion for travel and exploring culture has led me all over the world. Upon earning a degree in business from Indiana University, I have lived in Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Spain, and California. I am finally back home in Chicago! I currently live in Uptown with my wife Naoka, son Lui, and our little Shih-Tzu RumChan. On the weekend, we enjoy picnicking at the beach, camping, and skateboarding at the new facility in Grant Park!

Prior to working with StartingPoint Realty, I owned and operated a successful biomedical engineering company. Transferring my skills to real estate has been a very natural fit for me. I enjoy wearing different hats throughout the day and appreciate the diverse experiences that real estate has to offer. I pride myself in providing first time home buyers the StartingPoint experience and treat every client as a new member of the SPR family.

“Darren was great to work with and answered all of my questions as a first-time buyer. We hit a couple of snags (none that were his fault) and he walked me through each time. I felt like he was truly on my team and really could not have asked for a better real estate agent going through this process. He even fielded phone calls from my mom from across the country!” 

Hi, do you have any questions that I can answer for you?
