Personal Profile

Formally from the construction trade, I spent my first career in construction sales and marketing for a major wholesaler in Southern California. I worked my way up through the ranks to become their leading salesman for the company and eventually got promoted to director of sales and marketing responsibilities. When I left the construction industry after 20 years, I scouted various options and chose Real Estate for several reasons. My back ground in construction and my knowledge and deep sales back ground. As a residential Real Estate agent, I excelled from year one with my focus on providing top block service with focus on military and law enforcement clientele. As I approach my 20th year, it has been my pleasure in providing honest answers, personal care, dedicated service to my clients and members of their family each and every day. Why choose Darrell Keliinoi as your agent? A real estate transaction is a business and a personal relationship with many iatrical parts, but always tethered to the need to provide genuine service and straight forward answers and information. It is the basis of the relationship. I utilize years of experience in support of the client's own unique requirements and circumstances. Some financially based, others are a strategic move, either transfer or business, while others, it may be their first experience. Experience matters: as it allows clients access to proven alternatives, guidance, answers, solutions, supported by my passion for my clients to succeed in support of their personal goals. I do this as much for them as I do it for myself, because it matters! Given the opportunity to discuss facts with, and listen to their needs, the end result is to earn trust, respect and the honor to serve them as in finding and validating a mutually beneficial out come as their Real Estate agent. My promise to you? Provide you an Honest and straight forward approach, backed by integrity to get it right! I look forward to serving you!

As an out-of-state seller I needed Darrell to handle every facet of the sale, and he handled every detail quickly and professionally. He understood my objectives clearly and was able to quickly respond to the Buyer's proposals and assert my position, which resulted in a transaction that yielded proceeds at my highest expectation. I would highly recommend Darrell to family and friends for his knowledge, expertise, and experience.

I would highly recommend Darrell Keliinoi to anyone looking for a realtor. He is extremely knowledgeable and has a long successful track record for a reason. He listens to what your wants are and gives you straight forward, expert feedback to help you make the best decision for you and your family.

We have never written a testimonial before but felt compelled to write one based on our experience with Darrell Keliinoi from CENTURY 21. As part of the NFCU Realty Plus Program, NFCU connects you with a local real estate agent. Darrell reached out to us to find out what are needs were and set up an on-line portal for us to view homes at our leisure. Knowing that this would be our " forever home" we wanted to take our time to find the right house for us. Darrell patiently showed us homes. We never felt pressured to make decision. Once we found our home, the process went smoothly. He kept in constant contact with us and provided full transparency on purchasing our home. He exceeded our expectations from start to finish.

Darrell Keliinoi was a tremendous help during my first home buying experience. He made sure I understood and was comfortable with everything that was going on, which was a huge deal to me. He answerd my calls and texts and even worked around my busy schedule. I would definitely use Darrell again!

There was never a doubt that Darrell would be selling this house for us. He was outstanding at helping find the house, and we were sure that he would do an outstanding job selling.

Exceptional marketing. Top notch

Could not ask for a better person to be able to be our agent.

If I could have had Darrell be our agent/broker for purchasing our new home in Virginia, I would have. That's how good he is. Our broker in Virginia was outstanding, and I would highly recommend him. But, he is not Darrell. Darrell is in a class of his own.

Darrell was really helpful especially for a first time home buyer like myself. He guided me through the details and explained everything in simpler terms. He was also very organized and had all the requirements laid out for me so I would not miss any deadline. Overall, Darrell was a great agent and would definitely recommend to any first time homebuyer.

Darrell was outstanding. He really took time to listen to what we needed and expected out of the sale of our home. Not only did he deliver but he far exceeded our expectations.

Darrell Keliinoi helped sell our house in Escondido, California in August. He came recommended to me, and I'm glad he was the real estate agent who helped us through the selling process.

From my first meeting with Darrell, his substantial experience was obvious. He provided us an approach he uses successfully to obtain the highest sales offer for the current selling market. We followed his advice, and it worked. We sold our house for almost 3% higher than our list price.

We were selling a 47 year-old house that our family had owned since it was new. The inspection by the buyer turned up numerous items on the buyers list that had to be either corrected or certified in working order. One of the most valued areas of Darrell's knowledge was his help through this phase. Darrell provided contacts for the tradesmen (electrician, plumber, etc.), and coordinated the timing of their help from start to finish. This was a huge relief for me as I work full-time and didn't have the time for the effort required. Another benefit -- everyone he recommended was very reasonable priced for their services.

I will use Darrell again and recommend him and Century 21 Award to others. Darrell kept us updated almost daily through the sale process. There weren't many days during the sale process that I didn't hear from him with an update or recommendations from him on things that needed attention or consideration. Darrell is friendly but straight forward on what needs to happen and when. His high level of professionalism and experience earned our trust. When you use him in the future, you will also realize there isn't anyone better in the residential buying/selling process in San Diego County. You will also be satisfied and glad you used him!

We found Darrell through the USAA Real Estate Advantage program. At the time, we had started working with another realty team that we'd been referred to by friends. However, they were not a good fit. Darrell was patient, understood my family's timeline, and worked with us to find a home that matched our family's needs. Patience and commitment to our family's considerations played the largest role in our decision to go with Darrell. We are happy that we did.

Working to purchase our home in Southern California from Hawaii made it impossible to get out to the home prior to putting in an offer. Darrell did an outstanding job of getting to the properties on our short list and providing critical feedback on each one so that we knew what we were getting into before putting in an offer. He also took time from his day to work with our inspectors and contractors to ensure that the property was ready for my family to occupy after closing. We couldn't be happier with the service he provided.

I would recommend Darrell to anyone. This is our 4th home that my family purchased, and Darrell ranks among the top of realtors that we've worked with over the years. We're very pleased that we had the opportunity to purchase our family's home with him this year.

Darrell Keliinoi was referred to us by Navy Federal CU when my husband and I needed the most help. Darrell took the time to sit down with us, even after hours, to answer all our questions with great expertise and patience. He never hesitated to meet us, must of the time face to face, to help us, and treated us as a family.

We thank him for being concerned over the situation we were facing with the death of our Father. Darrell lead us throw all of the details with the sell of our house and made the Trust paperwork easy to follow. He knew the market and estimated the time it would take to sell our house accurately.

I was assigned Darrell Keliinoi as my agent by chance, and I was incredibly lucky! I lived 8 hours from the city where I was hoping to purchase a home, which made my situation more difficult than others. Darrell was exceptionally helpful through the entire process, despite the fact that I was never there to tour a potential home myself. He viewed every house I asked him to, providing me so much detail about the home and the neighborhood that I felt like I had toured it myself. In the end, we found the perfect place and Darrell walked me through the offer/contract portion, giving me a full explanation of every portion and answering every question I had.

As a first time homebuyer and someone purchasing a home long distance, I could not have asked for a better agent. I highly recommend Darrell and will definitely be using him again for my next purchase.

Darrell was fantastic. I called him one afternoon to see a home and he was "Johnny on the spot". As a first time homebuyer, I had not clue what I was doing and Darrell really helped guide me through the process. He let me know which steps I had completed, and next steps that were going to happen. Darrell gave me frequent updates and truly made this experience bearable.

My wife and I had been trying to buy our first home in Valley Center rather unsuccessfully. I consider myself a bit of an expert after first working with 3 other agents, but that was until the day that Darrell Keliinoi took over. Once he got involved, we got the house we wanted at the price we wanted. We even got us a new roof and septic system. My only regret is not working with him earlier. We found the right house, and Darrell is the right agent. I trust him completely, and if I ever sell my house I'm going to sell it with Darrell. My wife and I would feel great recommending Darrell to our closest friends, and family. 10/10

Darrell is a wonderful agent and willing to work with us, even when we were on travel in Asia. We are very pleased with the purchase! He was able to work a fairly smooth transaction although both buyers and sellers were out of town.

Other than the small hiccup of the EMD confusion and communication, everything Darrell and the escrow team did to make this purchase happen was supurb!

Darrell took the time to listen to what was important to us in a home and then guided us through the pros and cons of the areas we were looking at. His exceptional knowledge of the market in San Diego gave us incredible confidence when putting in offers and looking at homes. There was never any pressure and he truly was the expert adviser in our corner. It's clear he prides himself on providing excellent service and he always got back to us quickly when we had questions. I can't say enough good things or recommend him highly enough. This was our first home purchase and he made it as painless as possible. Thanks again Darrell.

Darrell made us fill like family. Any question we had through out our process in buying our first home he made as a priority. He was a great person to ask any question, he not only gave a very informative answer but provided it in a timely manner. I would absolutely recommend him to any family member knowing they will be in good hands.

Having decided to sell our home of 24 years and move to an independent living facility, we selected a Darrell Keliinoi from two recommended agents by relocation assistance company. We are both physically challenged and all the extra care and assistance provided by Darrell was extremely helpful and well beyond expectations!

We were provided with detailed weekly market updates as promised and due to our ability to rely on Darrell's professional recommendations (never aggressively provided!) the sale was completed in a timely and stress-free manner.

I hope we will have the opportunity to proudly recommend a Darrell Keliinoi to others so they may have a similar top-notch experience!

Few things missed if any at all and with him came the complete package that made everything smooth!

Darrell was wonderful and worked hard for us while we were still living in Japan. He had excellent knowledge of the area and was able to answer our questions. By the time we arrived he had sent us so many listings that fit our criteria that we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted and neighborhoods/school districts we wanted to live in. Once we arrived he worked on our schedule and helped us quickly find a beautiful house and didn't waste our time showing us things we would never consider. He was invaluable in helping us find the right house very quickly.

Darrell was incredible with the complexities of our purchase. My wife and I were both going through intensive training to become sub-specialty surgeons across the country in Baltimore. Darrell was totally comfortable with our odd hours, and having our mothers come out to view houses in lieu of us due to our inability to leave training to come to the west coast before our move. Darrell was upfront and honest about his impressions of the houses we were interested in, and gave us solid advice regarding offering price, etc. He really is an excellent agent, and I trust him implicitly.

Darrell Keliinoi is an outstanding professional. He went routinely above and beyond to ensure all my questions were answered and to make the purchase of my new home a reality.

He always represented my equities during all discussions and transactions. He even worked with the lender to ensure time lines were met.

Having Darrell Keliinoi assist our contractor and be our broker was a perfect situation for us! He was absolutely great to work with.

ATTENTION ALL MILITARY MEMBERS! I am a SMSgt with the Air Force and order you all to use Darrell Keliinoi for all of your real estate needs. This man understands and appreciates military personnel. He also is not afraid to role up his sleeves and assist a family when PCS moving across the country to a new place of residency. You can absolutely trust him with every single aspect of your purchase. I would go so far to say, tell him what you want, what you don't want, how much or how little you want to spend and let him lose. He will work until you are satisfied! I selected a house in one day and closed 21 days later!!! Who does that?! Darrell is a man of outstanding integrity, a straight shooter, and will not waste your time with nonsense. These are qualities men and women in uniform can appreciate like no others. I no longer view Darrell as my real estate agent, I would now refer to him as a friend of my family and trust him with my military family, as well. He has my highest recommnedation!

Sincerely,

SMSgt David Solis

Darrell went beyond the call of duty for us. From being the only Realtor willing to "beat the street" to inspect homes prior to my arrival to ensure that the limited time I had was used well. His local knowledge was unrivaled. We were able to filter homes and wisely use time through his expertise. When we selected homes, he quickly had comparable homes, accurately priced and analyzed the current market. This allowed us to get a reasonable offer in quickly in a challenging environment. In spite of some challenges, Darrell was the consummate professional and pulled together all parties and had the home closed on time. He worked tirelessly with the bank and and didn't leave us as buyers at the close of sale. We appreciate his hospitality and eagerness to remain part of our family and we will recommend him to anyone looking for a home in PQ or Poway without any reservation. We will use him again!
