From Gig Harbor to Seattle, your trusted Real Estate Advisors!


Sue Darnell & Christina Fitzer (co-founders of Dwell Home Team) are a full-service team with over 40 years of experience. We are a package deal, 2 committed agents for your home and financial goals.  





This was our 5th transaction ( 3 purchases and two sales)with the Fernandes-Darnell team. As to be expected the process was seamless and over before we knew it. The house was staged, pictures and videos taken over a weekend and the house listed on Monday. We accepted a full price offer on Tuesday  and before we knew it we were on the road to our new home with the best snacks ever from Sue and Christina. -M.Perkins, Gig Harbor

Fantastic team! From buying our first home to getting ready to sell the same home 6 years later, they have helped us every step of the way! We are now pending sale after only one day on the market! I highly recommend Sue & Christina for all of your real estate needs!

Christina Fernandes has been extremely helpful in our first home purchase! She was quick to show us houses that she thought we may be interested in and was very diligent. Once we found the house of our dreams, Christina worked tirelessly facing multiple competing offers ( even cash offers) to help us secure our first home! I would strongly recommend Christina Fernandes with any of your real estate needs!


Christina and Sue did a wonderful job showing us properties. My husband and I are from out of town, and are looking to potentially retire in Washington. We were very forthcoming in letting them know we were not quite ready to move. Nevertheless, Christina and Sue went out of their way to show us the area, provide local insight, and even drive and extra 20 minutes to show us a remote property. We will, without a doubt, use them if we move here and can’t thank them enough for such a great experience!

Christina was FANTASTIC!! End to end this was a wonderful experience. As first time home sellers, we were very nervous to start the process. From the get go, Christina walked us through every step of the way. She had her team come out and take amazing photos of our house and then she ran with the  marketing. She got our home listed all over social media and all of the real estate sites. We put our house on the market on a Friday afternoon and by Monday evening we have 7 offers (all WAY OVER asking price). We cannot stress enough how great this experience was and we HIGHLY recommend Christina for all of your real estate needs. – Listing Sold in Edmonds, E.Olivier

We loved everything about working with Sue and Christina! They were able to sell our home for more than we could’ve imagined. They know the local market, were very responsive throughout the entire process and staged our home beautifully. They’ve made life long customers out of us!

I absolutely cannot say enough good things about Sue & Christina Fernandes Darnell! My recent home-buying experience was a dream come true- no hiccups, easy as all get-out & dare I say FUN, & I attribute it all to Sue & Christina! Their knowledge & experience showed through in so many ways; they answered every question I could think of, scheduled appointments around my busy work schedule & went above & beyond to make this the easiest & stress-free home purchase I have ever undertaken. If you need to list property, or are looking to buy, I encourage you to let Sue & Christina take care of things. You will NOT regret it! 🙂

Christina showed us many homes and helped us learn what we were looking for. When the home of our dreams came on the market she sent us the listing within minutes of it being posted. With such a competitive market she was able to advise us in a smart offer (within our comfort zone) and get us the house. Despite stronger offers being put on the table. We just got our keys yesterday and pulled up to a house with an adorable welcome mat and a very thoughtful welcome basket. Christina managed to make us already feel at home!
