We had our home on the market with another agent for a little over a year and had no hope of selling our place. We touched base with Derrick and our house sold within months! We were amazed at how quickly things turned for the better. He is a good negotiator and really looks out for the benefits of his clients.

I bought my home 3 years ago with Derrick and i have to say he really took the time to learn my criteria quickly and wouldn't show me anything that he knew i wouldn't like. He made the process of purchasing my 1st home was painless and worry free! thanks DJ I will be calling you soon for my next home!

I can’t stop thanking my realtor Derrick Jackson for all of his hard work and time he has spent working towards getting my home sold in such a tough seller’s market. With some many tasks I had to dealing with and the pressure that I was under he make it happen in an unrealistic time frame and I'm so grateful to him for all of his hard work and dedication. His honesty is what I respected the most. We all know that this is currently a buyers’ market and not a seller’s market. If you want someone that is willing to tell you the truth about the real estate market today and what you need to sale your home I can truly recommend Mr. Derrick Jackson II.
Derrick is AWESOME!!! Being new to purchasing a home, I had a lot of questions and was pretty overwhelmed by the entire process. I didn’t even know where to start. I tried using some other agents, but they were extremely pushy and it seemed like all they wanted was the sell. Before meeting Derrick, I had a bad taste in my mouth from past experiences, but he changed that right away. He immediately made me feel comfortable. He took his time with me and answered every question I had. He proved to be extremely knowledgeable agent as he showed me some ways I could potentially cut cost that would save me thousands of dollars other agents I worked with never told me about. He always made himself available to me. When looking for houses, I began getting impatient and he’d always remind me, “You’ll know the moment you walk through the front door if it’s supposed to be your home or not, and we will not settle until you have that feeling.” I haven’t had that feeling yet but I hope to soon. My entire experience has been great with Derrick. If you’re looking for a great agent, I highly recommend Derrick.

This agent helped me buy a house. He recommended an inspector who did not know anything.
I often wondered if he was working for the buyer or the seller. Do not work with him - he will force you into a house - to ensure he makes the commission on the sale. Very forceful and does not care about your needs. Has not followed up with me, nor cares about me after the deal went through. Did not even show up to the closing, and missed some of the finer details on his end.
Once contract was in place - said that it was up to the lawyers and the bank - and he had nothing do and did not care about the buyer.
Stay away - find a better one. Make sure to interview and get reference checks first.
