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 Vice 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. 


Savannah's Personal Background

Born in Suffern, NY but raised in Northern Virginia. I have lived in Northern New Jersey for 7 years now! Although I was not born here, I like to get out and explore the areas so I am well versed! I love travel, spending time with family, playing sports, and outdoor activities! I have passion for helping others, and working with kids as well.

I currently work at Barnstable Academy but I am excited to guide my clients through every step of the home-buying process! I love searching for different homes, viewing the homes, but what I am most excited for is to the smile on my clients face when we find them their dream house! I love working with people and talking to them, and I promise I will be very committed and dedicated to helping you find your perfect home for you!


Meet Darcie And Vera!


"Vera is attentive to your requests, she stays in the perimeters of your financial boundaries, forwards new inventory. Helpful in information regarding properties and area. A delight to work with!!"

  -Leslie, Buyer in West Milford, Client

"I recently worked with Darcie Hunter from this office. Darcie helped rent my Ringwood home. She was extremely knowledgeable and so easy to get along with that we've even continued our friendship. Darcie had my best interests at heart throughout the process, was always readily available, helped rent my home quickly, got me the best price possible and even referred me to a NY agent who's been equally amazing with helping me find a new home. Darcie is very authentic, knows what she's doing and is a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend her for all your Realtor needs!"

  -Daniela N, Client

"Darcie Hunter is the best! My experience with her was simply outstanding. She was super knowledgeable, responsive, and proactive which is what every buyer/seller needs (especially first time home buyers like myself!). She has a gift of making every client feel like they are her only client. I can't imagine not having her as my agent. We worked together for a year before I found the right home in this exceedingly competitive sellers' market. She possesses the perfect balance of expert advice, encouragement, empathy, and humor. Darcie will GET IT DONE and I highly recommend her!"

  -Jennifer M., Client

"The Skylands Real Estate Team recently sold our home and we were extremely happy with the services that Vera Lewandoski and Darcie Hunter provided. They were professional and collegial from our first meeting, and made themselves available through every part of the process. Selling a home involves many details and a hefty amount of stress, but Vera and Darcie were always encouraging, positive, upbeat, and ready to help with whatever needed to be taken care of. “We’re a full service realtor!” Vera would declare with a smile as she helped us navigate our house sale alongside moving to our new home, reassuring us that all was well in hand and everything would get done. We highly recommend this incredible team and could not imagine having done this with anyone else."
