Natalie, Max, & Maddox S.

This is to recognize and sincerely thank Darrel Hoh. He has truly changed our lives. Once we began our housing search, it seemed hopeless to ever find a home in this market. We loved so many of the homes we saw and made so many offers. Darrel was always up front and honest with us regarding our offers and the reality of finding a home with a very small down payment and FHA loan. Even with our circumstances, he would not give up on us and was constantly supportive and extremely helpful. Less than a week later, Darrel called us and said he realized that we are no longer interested in moving, but had an opportunity we couldn’t pass up. A couple he has known for a several years were selling their home and wanted a family to move in who would take care of the home and stay long term. We were hesitant because we felt it was unlikely to find a house at this point. As soon as I entered the home I knew it was the one where we would raise our family. We have been here about a month and love everything about the house. I recommend Darrell to anyone who is looking for a home in the bay area. Not only is he extremely kind, honest and compassionate. He truly cares about all of his clients and wants to help each family he works with to the perfect home. He is extremely detailed and knowledgeable about the housing market. He explains everything in great detail in a way the client can understand. We couldn’t be happier in our new home. People cross our paths in life for a reason and we are so glad to have crossed paths with Darrell and the Burts. Thank you for everything.

There are no words that can truly express how thankful I am to have worked with Darrell during my first time home buying experience, but I can try. My family and I met Darrell at an open house that we stumbled upon. Darrell is extremely personable and made an effort to get to know each member of my family, without being overly aggressive. From the beginning until the very end of the process, Darrell was extremely flexible and understanding of my limited availability as a high school teacher. Darrell constantly made himself available to communicate with through various platforms, such as in person, over the phone, through text, and email. Further, Darrell was able to take out a lot of the stress from a stressful life event by being transparent and a step ahead for every step of the way. Darrell is extremely knowledgeable and resourceful while still being able to explain and break things down in a way that I could easily understand. I know that my family and I were not the easiest clients to work with, because of credit scores, account histories, and such, but Darrell was willing to make any sacrifices that he could to get me and my family into my new house in a timely manner. I truly do not think that the transaction would have been possible without the hard work from Darrell. Even my lender stated that Darrell was critical to the success of purchasing the house. Even after the close of escrow, Darrell assured me that he will be my realtor for life because of the way he continues to check on me and my family even after the close of escrow.

Hiring Darrell Hoh to be our realtor was the best decision we made in the entire home-buying process! As first-time homebuyers, we had a lot of questions, including how to pick a good realtor. Throughout the entire process, Darrel was patient, friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely responsive. He helped us figure out what mattered to us in a house. Proposed several houses to check out, and was completely supportive even when we changed our budget and geographic range. He also referred us to reputable mortgage brokers, shared perspective on inspection and disclosure reports, and explained both the norms and trends of the local real estate market. When the time came to place an offer, he walked us through the daunting paperwork and gave great advice on building an offer packet that would be comfortable to us and compelling to the seller. When our first offer was declined, he helped us stay motivated and assured us that an even better fit for us was out there. Yet no matter where on the emotional roller-coaster we were, Darrell was our stable rock, no question or concern was too small or silly, and he was always available. We have no doubt that working with Darrell Hoh made our search for the right house much faster, easier, and more successful. We strongly encourage you to start your home-buying process with the same great first decision that we did and hire Darrell as your realtor. It is no exaggeration to say that Darrell didn’t just help us buy a house; he’s one of the main reasons we now have a home.

My son and daughter-in-law used Darrell Hoh as their realtor when they purchased their first home in the East Bay and they highly recommend him. Having him as the realtor for my mother's property was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Darrel is very pleasant, positive, knowledgeable, understanding, and compassionate. He is very high energy and gets things done quickly and efficiently. He is really unbelievable. Within a few days I had an asking purchase price for the house, a quote for various levels of improvements, along with a recommendation for which option would yield the best value in selling the house. As soon as I decided on which improvements to make Scott had his team start on the work. All I had to do was move anything we wanted to keep/give/donate. It was done in record time. Darrell listed the house on one day and presented us with 12 offers (all over asking price). Darrell is adept in handling all aspects of real estate from start to finish. There is nothing that Darrell does not know or do. To say that Darrell is fantastic is an understatement. He is simply phenomenal. If you want the very best, choose Darrell as your realtor. You could not be in better hands.

We were ready to purchase a home, we set up an appointment with him to go over our price range, area and type of house we had hoped to buy in this crazy housing market. We had lots of questions. Darrell was patient, responsive and took the time to walk us through the process. That continued throughout the entire house-hunting journey. He never pushed his opinions unless we asked for his input. He would give us honest feedback on the realities of looking and buying a home in the Bay Area. He also worked well with our mortgage broker Marjo Diehl at Rpm Mortgage (also highly recommend her, too). We made a few offers and finally landed on our dream house with three bedrooms in the neighborhood we wanted. I trust Darrell. I always joked he felt like part of the family because we would talk so often and at all hours. Finding the right house in this market isn't easy but it is possible. Darrell won't let you down.

I could not have found a better agent than Darrell. Darrell inspired in me confidence and calm. He immediately made me feel at ease as he offered expertise, advice and professionalism. But what struck me the most about Darrell was his honesty. He gave me the facts both good and bad. I appreciated his candor, his quiet confidence and his deep dedication to his clients, day in and day out. You can count on Darrell to always be thinking 2 step ahead. Darrell assisted me in succesfully selling our home and also in purchasing my new condo in Jack London square. You could not hope for a better agent, a more professional ally or more competent real estate expert than Darrell. Not only was he a fantastic agent but he's become a wonderful friend. I would use Darrell again and again as my agent and cannot recommend him enough.

Matt & Jennifer

Going above and beyond we were very happy with Darrell as our realtor in the selling of our home. We felt he gave us 100% of his time, attention and knowledge both at the beginning and end of the sale. We truly appreciated his thorough understanding of Bay Area real estate as well as the way he took time to explain everything to us. One of the things that most impressed us was the fact that he was willing to help us out and council us prior to us even deciding to retain his services. It was this type of “above and beyond” approach and hard work that really set Darrell apart from the other agents that we interviewed. Darrell was an excellent advocate for us in what was undoubtedly one of the most important financial transactions we have ever had, and we would recommend him without reservation.

Buyer

I recently purchased a house in El Sobrante with the help of Darrell. I worked with Darrell over a period of several months looking for the right house after he was recommended to me by the financial agent I was working with. My experience of him was that he was very knowledgeable, experienced and professional. When I did find the house I was to buy, he was very good at making recommendations as far as inspections, keeping escrow on track and even managed to get escrow closed a few days early. In making suggestions as to the purchase price we might offer and negotiating issues around the pest inspection and appraisal value I believe he saved me at least ten thousand of dollars off what I might have paid otherwise. I highly recommend him for anyone who needs a good real estate agent.

From the moment I contacted Darrell to the final signature at escrow. I was confident I could not have found a better realtor. I realized that selling a property is a process that requires patience, precision, reliability and a great deal of caution. Darell had all the qualities of a realtor I could work with. In addition, I was out of the country during the sale process which added another factor to the equation. Darrell made the process easier than I ever expected and inspired confidence during the journey. He was punctual, flexible, and very knowledgeable of his work. He was also caring, kind, respectful, and a great human being. I certainly would recommend Darrell Hoh to any friend or anyone interested in selling or buying a property.
