I set myself and my team impeccable standards and require complete commitment and dedication." Darren Wildash was the sales powerhouse behind Lanchester Wildash Estate Agents, Manly and leads his entire team by example. Since commencing his real estate career in 1990, Darren has developed a wealth of experience and an extraordinary depth of knowledge about the property market with a particular emphasis on the local area. Darren has forged an exceptional reputation for credibility and integrity together with one for the delivery of outstanding results.
Darren is highly respected and widely recognised as a leading performer in the Manly Warringah area and is a role model and mentor for many career minded real estate professionals. He is consistently amongst the Top 10 achievers in the group. According to Darren, "Having lived locally all my life is a critical factor behind my success." I also have close connections with a variety of sporting and social clubs in the area and have dealings with several generations of the same family. It is not unusual for me to regularly see my clients in the street or at social functions. "I have built a valuable reputation over many years in the area and need to perform at the highest level to ensure that my reputation is never tarnished. Importantly, I need to have a team around me that aspires to the same levels of service and settles for nothing less than the highest standards."
For Darren, the business of real estate is much more than dealing with property. Darren realises that for most people buying or selling real estate can be a significant event in their lives and is often highly charged with emotion. "Strong interpersonal skills are the key to any successful relationship, particularly when you are dealing with people's homes. Sound, honest communication and the ability to reason calmly and logically are certainly an important aspect of our success. It is also vital that we are flexible and cater to the individual needs of all our clients. Of course, good old fashioned hard work is imperative to survive in such a cut throat world," says Darren.
