Darlene Dipo, winner of the 2018 Windermere Meraki Award, is a celebrated realtor with a history of accomplishment throughout the state Utah. Darlene has 40 years of experience as a realtor and broker, and championed her vocation in a time when it was mostly a male-dominated profession.

Throughout her career, she has been known to her clients to work with honesty, grace, a helpful spirit, and a professional demeanor.
Darlene is a seasoned fighter in more than one way. As a two-time cancer survivor, Darlene understands that life is to be enjoyed, relationships strengthened and that the right home can help foster those things.
