Darby Merriman is a force to be reckoned with! She has had a passion for homes since her childhood days of seeing her aunt and uncle flipping homes before flipping homes was even a thing! We had a chance to sit down and interview this beautiful lady and find out things we never knew!
Valerie: Tell me how you became interested in Real Estate:
Darby: My good friend Chrissy Mallouf gave me the final push, but it was an inevitable career move for me. I’ve been around home remodeling since my days of watching my Aunt restore homes. I’ve always negotiated my own contracts when buying and selling my personal homes. Real Estate came natural to me.
Darby: Henry Cavill, Jax on General Hospital, and Sam Hunt
Valerie: What’s one thing you can’t live without?
Valerie: Any weird habits you want to tell us about?
Darby: I obsessively clean my ears three times a day.
Valerie: I know you are active in your children’s school. Tell me about that!
Darby: I’ve been on the PTA board at Rosemeade Elementary ever since my kids have been there. I have done just about every volunteer job around the school and have been President, VP of community outreach, VP of programs and volunteer coordinator on the board. Next year, I will be Parliamentarian on both the Rosemeade Elementary and Blalack Middle School PTA boards.
Darby: I could live off of wine and a meat and cheese plate.
Valerie: Tell me about your design style.
Darby: I’m into “eclectic farmhouse.” I will literally use anything to decorate. I incorporate my children’s artwork into my design. I can mix leopard print, florals, you name it. I don’t spend a lot of money, I ‘m a bargain hunter!
Darby has a huge heart for her clients and recently worked with a sweet elderly man who had lost his wife and was completely broken hearted. She was able to lend an ear to this sweet man during such a difficult time in his life. For Darby, it isn’t just listing and selling homes, her heart is in every transaction. We are so happy to have her on our team!
