Born and raised in northern New Jersey, his academic aspirations led him to James Madison University and The Maryland Institute, College of Art, achieving both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in art history and education. He has since lived in Atlanta for over a decade, teaching at the middle school and university levels, before returning to complete an MBA at Ashridge/Hult International Business School here in Cambridge, MA and London this past fall.
Thrilled to be back in New England and a part of the bustling real-estate business, he relishes in making the dream of home ownership a delightful reality. Attention to detail and empirical customer service are both his passion and top priorities. His mantra is a quote by Goethe – “Dream no small dreams”.
In his free time, Darby enjoys sports, reading New Yorker magazine, and running along the Charles River. He is currently learning Italian and cooking all kinds of pasta after spending time in Florence this past year.
Boston’s gay and lesbian neighborhoods are scattered throughout the city and are accessible via the “T,” a local nickname for the MBTA subway. Southwest of the city, in Jamaica Plain, you will find young lesbian families mixing with gay students from nearby Northeastern and Emerson College. Gay men tend to live in the South End, an upscale, Brownstone-lined neighborhood a few blocks from Boston Common.
Just across the Charles River and accessible by the red-line “T,” Somerville is home to Bohemian artists, young families, and Harvard, M.I.T. and Tufts students. While not in Boston proper, Somerville has a large LGBT population, as well as some of the best retro eateries and vintage shops. In Davis Square, the coffee shop Diesel — complete with gas-station decor — is a favorite haunt for Tufts students and locals.
