DJ French - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

DJ found things we might have missed and got us a great deal!


Michael Dumblewski

My husband and I were searching for a first home, so you all know how stressful and daunting that can be.

Agents blow up your phone left and right trying to give you the hard sell. Somewhere in the chaos, I stumbled upon DJ very early on in our search and we couldn't be happier we chose him! From the beginning, DJ was much more down to earth than any other agent I'd spoken to. What a relief! We ended up finding the perfect home almost immediately and thanks to his excellent negotiation, we got it for a fantastic price. I would recommend him to any first-time house hunters: he will be there to guide you though every step. Thank you so much for everything, DJ! We will look you up again when we make our next move!

Katherine Ott (Electrical Engineer Co-op/Student)

It's always a pleasure working with DJ.

He understands the process and tries to anticipate any issues before they arrive. Anytime I contact him to ask for something, he either has or has already asked for it.

Toni Sweeney

I had a great experience working with DJ French and his team.

He was on top of everything and we were ready to close almost a week before the scheduled closing. That made the process so pleasant. I would gladly refer him to other home buyers.

Rodney Jolley (President)

I loved working with DJ.

You can always tell a business person's character and professionalism with how they handle the bumps and bruises that inevitably come with our business. He handled everything with grace and respectable sophistication. Our jobs are difficult; patience and pose means so much.

Kimberly Keith (Loan Originator )

Dj and his wife (Kim) did an excellent job on this transaction.

My wife and I were looking at a totally different style property and they knew this would work for us. They handle the whole process beautifully and I would not work with anyone else in the future.


Kim and DJ were super helpful in helping buy and sell in a crazy market.

They helped explain everything during the process which we really appreciated.

Michael Dillon (Director of Marketing )

DJ was a consummate professional and his diligence and quick work allowed us to purchase a home against a cash offer.

Through several real estate transactions, DJ has always communicated well and gone above and beyond to make a deal happen. We could not be happier with the service we received from DJ and Next Door

Robert Hutchinson (Financial Manager - United States Army, PEO STRI)

Darrell (DJ) was one of the best realtors I have worked with.

He was easy to get a hold of and to talk through issues with. He was upfront and honest about the process, had great advice when we needed it and followed through with everything he said he would do with efficiency and thoroughness even under some less than ideal circumstances. We could not have asked for a better experience.

Craig E Roush (Home Owner)

Professional, responsive, and friendly. Would be happy see him on the other end of a deal anytime!

Katie Ballinger (Closing Manager, Realtor)

I love working in partnerships where everyone's primary goal is to have happy clients and a smooth closing!

Everyone play's their part, but when an exceptional team forms the process is seamless for the clients! I truly appreciated working with you and look forward to doing it again!

Meli Trujillo (Escrow Officer)

DJ did an excellent job helping me and my wife sell our house.

It was our first ever time selling a house, and we were worried that it would feel like chore to get it done. However, DJ guided us through the process with ease, and every step of the way ensured we understood what was happening while making it feel effortless. I would not hesitate to ask for DJ's for assistance for any real estate business I have in the future.

DJ was amazing and so helpful with our new home ?

? and our old house ?? that we sold. He stayed on top of all details and provided invaluable direction and information throughout both processes. We would highly recommend him and his wife Kim to all prospective buyers and / or sellers of Real estate. Thanks ?? DJ and Kim

Terry L Krick

Dj did a great job selling my condo.

I had another agent prior to DJ and he could not get it under contract. DJ had it sold and closed in less than 45 days. The transaction was smooth and he handled everything. I have since moved out of state but would use him again if the situation arises.

AJ Monica (VP of Sales)

My wife originally found DJ online while searching for local agents with strong recommendations.

After buying our first home with his help, it's clear why he earned them. He was there through every step of the process, helpful, friendly and always keeping us abreast of what paperwork needed to be done and when it needed to be submitted by. To any prospective first-timers, that last one is an enormous task in and of itself. If and when the time comes to move on from this place, there's no question who we'll be hiring. Thank you for all your help DJ!

Geoff Ott (Resident)

Working with DJ is like working with an Eagle Scout.

He is honest, friendly, helpful, knowledgable and trustworthy. He felt like a part of my family! I have already referred friends and family to him for their home buying needs. I feel so blessed that I happened to meet him by chance, while looking at another property. He made everything easy - never a worry.
