      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $575K in Willow Glen, San Jose, CA.
      Derek helped me to sell my condo several years ago and I respected and trusted him so much with that transaction that I didn't hesitate to call him again when my wife and I decided to buy a house last year. Derek really knows his stuff, and we really enjoyed working with him. Our offer was accepted over several others because of his expertise. He handled some difficult interactions with the seller's agent with grace and professionalism. I would recommend him to anyone.  MoreLess

      Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2013 in Santa Clara, CA.
      If you are thinking of moving or need to purchase a home in this area, we would highly recommend Derek Miller of Realty World. He was recommended to us by our former neighbor, who by the way, had asked me at the time they were moving if I could recommend a realtor. At the time, I had no connection to any realtor as we had lived in our home since 1985 so I could not give them any name. We knew they sold their home at a price much higher than what they had hoped, so when my husband and I found out we needed to move, I contacted my neighbor to see if she would recommend her realtor. She told me about Derek and said if she needed a realtor again, she would surely call him! That was a good sign, so I contacted Derek and during our first conversation, I explained our situation and he was more than happy to answer any questions I had and was willing to meet with us at our convenience.

      He was very thorough, very knowledgeable, and had a plethora of information for us when it came to preparing our home for sale. He had GREAT suggestions for us while doing a first walk through in our home, both inside and outside. Some ideas I would have never thought of. I had joked with him that if I went through with all his ideas, I would never want to sell our home! We signed papers and had told him that there was a very small chance that we would not have to sell and he was fine with that.

      To make a long story short, we may not have to sell after all. We called Derek right away when we found out, and as he had promised, it was not a problem and he was very kind and STILL was willing to make recommendations to us about what to do to fix up our home to make it look better, both inside and out! A true professional; if there is anyone who either needs to sell their home or if you or someone you know needs to buy a home, Derek Miller is the person to call. I will guarantee he will work hard for you and I can tell you for certain he will give you excellent ideas to prepare your home, working within your budget, to get you the most for your home. In the future, if we do have to move, we will surely call Derek to sell our home for us! We know we would be in great hands!

      (By the way, we are still working on some of the suggestions Derek gave us – for instance, we painted our dark wood-paneled room to a cheery off-white color and every morning when I walk into the room I smile! I wish we had painted it years ago!) THANK YOU DEREK! I'm sorry we couldn't use you this time, but we will for sure if we have to move!

      Also, the choices provided of what I could choose for "Service provided" was not sufficient for what we needed. We never actually listed our home (we signed papers but haven't officially listed it yet;) and yet Derek did provide service - we connected and because of our situation, we did not need his service at this time - but if we do need his service, we will be contacting him!

      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Blossom Valley, San Jose, CA.
      This review is long overdue! Derek Miller helped me and my husband get the place we are living in now, in 2012. It's a small house with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths at a great location and in a nice and friendly neighborhood. This is the perfect house for just the two of us.

      Derek has worked in the real estate business for so many years. He's very experienced and knowledgeable about buying and selling your home. He's also very responsive, dedicated and reliable. He's not the type of person who would tell you what you want to hear but rather, will tell you as he sees it. So much so that, at one point I thought he was kind of confrontational and critical of my decisions. But then I thought it over and realized that my expectations were unrealistic and changed my way of thinking about and looking at other houses. Not very long afterward, we found this property with a lot of potential and decided to put in an offer.

      On the day to fill out the paperwork for the offer, we had a late start and Derek was at our place until about 9:00 pm. After everything was completed, he then had to go back to his office that night to fax all the documents to the listing agent since that was the last day for any offers to be in. Against all odds and multiple offers, ours was accepted ... the very next day! We could not be happier. Once our offer was accepted, Derek worked very hard to make sure everything was done as scheduled prior to closing, following up closely with the listing agent and at the same time keeping us informed throughout the whole process. The property was closed as planned and everything went smoothly in the end.

      Derek just bought our son his own house last month, as well -- a nice and quiet place in a beautiful and secluded area. We are very happy and pleased with the service Derek has provided and highly recommend him to anyone who wants to buy or sell their home.
