After college at MSU, Paula Groppe married and moved to the Jersey Shore where she lives and is very active with her award winning group of agents, the day to day business of Solid Gold, her friends and her Persian cat “Buddy.” She has one daughter, Diana and one grandchild, Evan with whom she continues to enjoy her lifelong pastimes of horse back riding, snow skiing & traveling.

Paula’s real estate career began as executive secretary before the advent of electronic technology which translates into a real love for capturing the details as well as the general purpose of the business. With continued encouragement, she obtained her real estate license in the late 50’s. Her award winning success in the 60’s resulted in her obtaining her Broker’s license in 1967. This multiple award winner specialized in new construction and eventually became the Broker of Record & President of Century 21 Solid Gold Realty in 1986.

Darlene Sieb

(732) 920-2100 X236 | (732) 267-5476 | darlenesieb@aol.com

Darlene Sieb grew up in North Jersey, graduated from Rutherford Highschool, and went on to business school. She is married and has three children & two grandchildren. She and her husband opened and operated the Copper Hood Restaurant for the 18 years. Customer service was top priority then and it still is.

Darlene switched careers in 1993, at the encouragement of a loyal, steady customer, who happened to be the trainer at Century 21 Solid Gold Realty. He realized that she was a “People Person” and would fit in the office of Solid Gold.

In the beginning, she contacted past restaurant customers to establish a client basis, this grew and grew and she has consistently been a multi-million dollar producer.

Darlene now enjoys being the trainer in the office, helping new agents get started and teaching them that working at Century 21 Solid Gold means The Customer always comes first and that means.. to solve any problems as they come up, and always treat your customers right and they will reward you with referrals to make your business grow.

Darlene and Rich are now “Empty Nesters,” in Brick with only their St. Bernard, Kody.

Having real estate as a full time career gives Darlene the opportunity to help clients find their dream home or sell their present one and move on, yet always being aware that both are major events in their lives and always need the help of a professional agent.
