Affiliate broker Darnes earns GRI designation


Crye-Leike Real Estate Services affiliate broker Donna Darnes has earned the Graduate Realtor Institute designation. Darnes works out of Crye-Leike’s Ooltewah office.

“Real estate is my passion, and learning more to help my clients achieve better success in the real estate endeavors makes (the effort to earn the GRI designation) worthwhile,” Darnes says. “I strive to give my clients 110 percent of the most competent and dedicated services and deliver outstanding results.”

With the GRI designation, Darnes “stands out among her peers as a real estate professional that can render broader and more effective services and elevate the standards of the real estate industry,” says Tennessee Association of Realtors officials. Administered by the TAR, Darnes’ new designation will indicate to the public that she has fulfilled the stringent requirements and completed a variety of real estate courses.

Darnes serves as a chairperson for the local Realtor association’s grievance committee.

She’s a lifetime member of Crye-Leike’s Multi-Million Dollar Club and a member of the National Association of Realtors, TAR and Greater Chattanooga Realtors.

Darnes is a resident of Harrison and is in her 12th year working in the real estate industry. She’s licensed in both Tennessee and Georgia and serves buyers and sellers in Hamilton County and Catoosa and Walker Counties in Georgia.

In addition to Darnes’ recent designation, she is a Certified Residential Specialist and has earned an associates degree.

She is also recognized as a LeadingRE Relocation Specialist, has earned the At Home With Diversity certification and is e-PRO certified.
