RED COLLECTIVE: Agent Dara Shain

Contact Dara



Dara Shain comes to RED with more than 15 years of advertising sales and marketing experience.  While at the Independent Weekly Newspaper she was a loyal asset to her clients, helping to build brand identity, create effective campaigns and develop solid relationships. During these years she learned the value of community and the imperative for social justice. A lover of people and stories, Dara’s clients and friends appreciate her honesty, eagle eye and her keen attention to detail. Dara’s work is rooted in sound research and creating thoughtful connections. She listens well and is committed to helping people meet their needs. Match-making and house hunting have always ranked high as pastimes, so the transition into real estate feels like a natural fit.

Dara has a degree in Communications from UNC Chapel Hill. She lives with her husband and daughter and enjoys calling South Durham home.
