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.

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.

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.

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 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.

I so enjoyed working with DJ and his wife Kim. Being a seller from out of state, we needed to depend on them for everything during the transaction and they went above and beyond. I would highly recommend them.

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.

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.

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.

I wanted to reach out and give you a big THANK YOU! It has been a pleasure working with you and NextHome, with not only the purchase of our new home but the sale of our other home. You have proven to be a superior realty expert. Shelly and I have nothing but praise and gratefulness for you and NextHome. We have bought and sold a few homes in the past 25 years but, I have to admit that the process this time has been nothing but pleasant. Thank you, very much. I will be recommending your expertise to everyone that I know. Shelly and I look forward to seeing you around town.

DJ was great to work with. He helped us buy and sell our homes. He was on top of everything and we received full price with multiple offer's. He even reminded us about our first mortgage payment coming up. Looking for an agent that isn't just about the sale but also about relationships then DJ French is the realtor for you.

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!

My wife and I have recently sold our home. DJ from NextHome Neighborhood Realty, was our realtor who was recommended to us via word of mouth. DJ was always professional, gave us the right amount of guidance and insight so that we had all the information needed to make the right decision(s). He kept us on the "straight and narrow" regarding selling our home , but was never pushy or intrusive and worked around our somewhat limited schedule. Our home sold in about a month and a half and was pretty uneventful, which is what you want - uneventful means less stress! I would recommend DJ French to anyone looking for a realtor.

DJ was a great help with helping my husband and I in finding a beautiful house. He was very informative, and always kept us updated with any news, or issues to do with the house. He was a great help with keeping on top of any issues, that needed to be fixed, etc. I would recommend him to anyone who needs help wanting to buy a house.

DJ made the process of selling my mother's home far easier than I ever imagined. He was very patient, helpful and understanding with me during this very difficult time. He walked me through everything and always kept me informed of anything that was going on no matter how big or how small the issue and I appreciated that so much!! I was given a weekly automatic update each Monday as well and that was very comforting. He was very accessible and let me know that if I had ANY questions or concerns to reach out to him at ANY time. At our closing - the buyers Realtor made a comment that I had a very good Realtor representing and handling our transaction and was a pleasure to work with - I couldn't agree more!! If I hear of anyone looking to buy or sell I will definitely give them DJ's contact information. I can't thank him enough for taking care of this for me!!
