" Mr. Harms exceeded my families expectations of a realtor. My family has gone through a few recent home sales and Mr. Harms easily stands out as the top realtor we've worked with. Mr. Harms is very detail oriented and delivers what you want, and more. For instance, not only did he have the place staged beautifully but his marketing was on point and really captured the full glamour of our unique property... almost made us not want to sell :). We had a buyer within one week of listing and the escrow process went smoothly. He's a professional in his field and I imagine many more pleasant experiences for his future clients. Thanks a ton, Derek " - Joe S.

" Derek was one of the most responsive, capable and agreeable agents we have ever worked with. He was always on top of everything we needed and kept everything moving, answering all our questions and watching to see that things were completed. " - Edward and Jodell A.

" I couldn't recommend Derek more. Derek is a true professional who makes you feel like you are the center of his world even though he may have other clients. He's very courteous and patient. He helped us get our home ready, arranged for beautiful photos, and help a very popular open house. All of which resulted in us selling our home above market price in only 1 week. " - Eric T.

" Derek came highly recommended from a colleague. This was my first home purchase, and he was a huge help throughout the entire process. Derek was patient with me during my search, and offered good advice as I narrowed down my options. We put together an offer that got accepted among multiple other offers, some with a higher price. Derek kept up communication between myself and the seller/listing agent to make sure everything went smoothly, and we closed on time with a 30-day escrow. Would definitely work with again. " - Tom G.

" Don't look anywhere else. Derek is a true professional in every aspect. My wife and I flew into San Diego 3 times and met with Derek. Derek asked all the right questions, selected a group of homes to look at, offered assistance in all comps and was a true superstar!! Derek coached me on my offer and I got the home of my dreams and saved me $10K to $20K!!! (I was going to offer more!!!) Derek provided "DocuSign", allowing me to sign all documents on line while out of state! Derek is the BEST " - Peter U.

" Derek, Thank you for guiding me through the complex process of buying a home! From the very beginning you helped point out things that I would have never thought of and you were always available for me with all my questions and concerns. You even saved me a few bucks that I thought I was going to be spending! Thanks again for sharing your knowledge, expertise and making this HUGE life decision and easier one! Happy Homeowner, " - Matt D.
