Skylands Real Estate Team
Darcie's Personal Background
I was born and raised on Long Island. My parents moved to NJ about 25 years ago and I fell in love with the natural beauty of Northern NJ. My husband's career has taken us around the world and back- Louisiana, Texas, Korea, Qatar, Australia, and China have all been home to our family. What does this mean to you? I have personally experienced moving and business relocation more times than most people. I am well versed with every step of the process and can lend an experienced ear (or shoulder to cry on!). I have been selected by our company to be a Relocation Team Agent, NFCU Affinity and I am a participating agent with AARP® Real Estate Benefits from Realogy. I am also a Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®).
I have 3 active children who go the local schools and participate in sports and activities through the schools and community programs. I am the sitting President of the Ringwood Educational Foundation (REF) and am active in the schools' PTOs and various community organizations.
My technology skills and social media savvy help sellers to position their properties in a crowded marketplace. In today's digital world, a high level of understanding is important to best market homes. I was also a published magazine writer and online copy editor, with a high level of attention to detail. I am also an experienced residential landlord and am well versed in real estate investing.
Vera's Personal Background
As a realtor since 1999, I have guided my clients through buyers' markets, seller's markets, low inventory, multiple offer situations, short sales and bank-owned properties, making their dream of homeownership a reality. The process can be smooth, but at times it can be a roller coaster. My main goal is to guide you through the process from beginning to end with honesty.
I grew up in Hillsdale, a tried and true Bergen County, Jersey girl. I moved to Ringwood in 1983, raised three children here and still enjoy the community, state parks and lakes that surround us. As a long time Erskine Lake resident, I consider myself an expert on the Ringwood lake lifestyle. "We live where you vacation!"
My experience and education give me an unparalleled edge when compared to less experienced, part-time agents. I am a full-time agent, with your needs as my #1 priority. I have earned the E-Pro®, Accredited Buyer's Representative® (ABR) and Pricing Strategy Advisor® designations, to further enhance my service to you.

Shelley's Personal Background
I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Vermont, but became a New Jersey transplant in 1994. After experiencing the Jersey Shore for many years, I fell in love with the lake areas of Northern NJ in 2010. I have lived in both Sussex and Passaic Counties so they are both familiar and close to my heart.
Becoming a real estate agent was a natural progression for me after working for 10+ years in commercial construction and 25+ years in the service industry. I have a unique point of view when it comes to finding the right fit and being able to assist buyers with questions or concerns while looking at properties.
Just like I love working with my retail commercial clients in construction, I love working with buyers to help them find exactly what they need. As a new homeowner myself, I have recently been through the entire process and can help first-time home buyers navigate the current market and provide a sympathetic ear.
