My firms have tens of millions of dollars in annual revenues, with one of them being nationally and internationally recognized twice by Inc. Magazine. My business has been people. Recognizing talents, strengths, weaknesses, and abilities, to create business and client success is my specialty. So much so, that my business, my employees, and my income depends on "getting that right". Darrell makes the top of my list. I recognize qualities in Darrell that I look for in my businesses and value in friends. He is rock solid. Darrell is quick in assessing opportunities and situations. He is wise, connected, smart, quick-witted, and quick to offer help and share experiences that aids in making business decisions. He is business-savvy in the real estate industry, and combined with his deep integrity, he quickly becomes a trusted resource. He steps up to the plate to get things done. Those traits and his large body of professional and industry experiences afford Darrell a great perspective and toolkit for handling situations, scenarios, and transactions of all sizes and urgency. I simply cannot say enough in my recommendation of Darrell. - Linda C.
Darrell, Thanks so much for the AWESOME customer service during the transactions of selling our house & purchasing our new home. You took the time to make sure that we knew all the details of both sides; selling & purchasing. You were always looking out for our best interest and making sure that those on the other side of the transaction were also treated fairly. You are a fabulous negotiator, exceptionally organized & always going above & beyond to make sure that the process was as low stress as possible... All while keeping the tight selling/buying process timeline on track. We never thought that putting an offer in on a house, putting ours on the market (in that order), closing on both properties & moving within 40 days (between Thanksgiving & Christmas no less) would be possible. But here we are in our new home that we love. Thanks again so much Darrell DeWard, you are the best of the best in the real estate world and beyond. - Steve W.
I had never dabbled in real estate before and had decided to try my hand at a little real estate investment. I met with Darrell DeWard and was very impressed by his knowledge and the time and care he was willing to invest in me as a newbie. At the time, I decided to buy one of his properties in Grand Rapids that was already occupied by a lease to own buyer. However, within a few months, the resident came upon hard times and gave notice. Because I was so new at this, I turned to Darrell for help and he was always there to assist and actually helped me find another lease to own resident. About a year into that situation, I was preparing to move out of state and I realized I could not handle this real estate property from that great distance. In addition, I was facing some difficult personal issues at the time and once again turned to Darrell to see if he might help. His compassion for my situation was such that he agreed to buy back the property from me in order to help me out of this tough situation that was no fault of his own. As evidenced by my story, Darrell is a man of integrity and caring. I would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to get involved in real estate investment or coaching. He is a good man and his knowledge of real estate is phenomenal. But beyond that, his investment in people is what he prizes most and that is a rare find in our day. I know God will bless him for this and I believe that you will be blessed through him. - Sheila H
We just sold our fifth home thanks to Darrell's assistance. Darrell was beyond helpful in so many ways during the process but the part that impressed me the most about dealing with him was the time that he spent up front in listing our house. He truly understands the importance or marketing a home and spent countless hours preparing the listing before it went live (no "cookie cutter" approach as so many agents take). The results, he sold it within a week for just a few thousand under our asking price. Thank you for helping me and my family through this process Darrell. - Kevin F
Darrell did a great job representing us as sellers. He was able to avoid some potential problems before they even arose with the mortgage process. He helped our home so quickly and for the price we wanted. I would definitely recommend using him, he has a lot of experience in the Grand Rapids area and is an extreme professional! - Stone H
Working with Darrell has been an absolute pleasure. I consider myself very lucky to have met and worked with him. I can say this confidently because he has helped me accomplish in a few months what I was unable to accomplish on my own in 4 years! Darrell is the real deal, and has an impeccable amount of character and integrity. Thank you Darrell for everything you have done for me. - Aman S.
Overall, investing in real estate has been my dream since I was 18 years old and Darrell has made that dream a reality. -Jeff M.
I must also add that Darrell has always been a pleasure to work with at all times and in all circumstances. Larry R.

I want to officially thank you for all of our business dealings over the years. In this time I have always had 100% faith in your word, and your actions have always coincided with this.

Your attention to detail and planning are just a few examples of why doing business with you is a pleasure. - Scott M.
It is also fairly obvious that Darrell has a passion for helping others and a drive to succeed. I believe him to be honest, hardworking, and someone you can do business with comfortably. I was pleased to work with Darrell and wish him much more success in the future. -Steve P.
I personally and professionally think very highly of Darrell and would confidently recommend his services. Professionally, he is very accomplished. I am confident that Darrell would place his client's welfare first. He does business fairly and with a high degree of integrity. Robert P.
I have come to greatly respect not only his incredible expertise in the area of real estate, but also his impeccable character. Darrell is a man of integrity. Couple that with a savvy business sense and you have a winning combination. Darrell has been there to answer questions and meet whatever my needs since the completion of my home buying transaction. I would not for one second hesitate to recommend him to anyone. You are in good hands... with Darrell, what you see is what you get and what you will get is a smart, honest deal. -Sheila H.
I was extremely nervous and uneducated about the process but your knowledge and expertise helped make the process from signing the purchase agreement through the closing very smooth. I look forward to working with you in the future! - Wes P.
I would certainly recommend Darrell to anyone who is looking for an honest real estate professional that they can trust with the purchase or sale of their home. He does what is right for the client and works quickly. He is competent and knowledgeable about about real estate transactions and how to best structure them to help the client. I have also had the opportunity to get to know him personally. Character and integrity run all the way through his life- he doesn't change when he is in front of a client verus when he is at home with his family. He is consistent. - Reg L.
I have known Darrell for several years and have found him to be a very forthright and honest person. I am more than pleased with his work ethics- what he says and what he does IS what he says and what he does. Darrell is a people person... he has that quality and ability to bring a satisfactory conclusion to his many transactions. Gerald H.
He looked at a property that was, in my opinion, a trainwreck; and saw a vision... and created a true win-win for everyone. Darrell is extremely detail-oriented, which is important to me. He handles himself professionally. He is someone that I can trust to follow through with details. -Jeff L.
You established credibility with me and everything happened exactly the way you said. In order for things to work, it required I put my complete trust and faith in you. My experience was more than positive. Every commitment was met, and beat all time-frames involved. You under-committed and over-delivered. -Jason L.
In today's business world, you have to be extra careful of whom you choose to ally yourself with. People for the most part are solely out for themselves and what they can attain not thinking that their outcome can duly affect people around them. Now, Darrell is a person I can truly call dependable, moral, ethical, hard-working, driven, honest, and one of the most important characteristics is he is a person of his word. He is an asset to me as well as others. In whatever capacity, Darrell gives it his ALL. -Robert B.
In the many closings I have conducted for Darrell, I have not had a time when the parties involved were unhappy with his performance. In fact, most of the time, there was another deal being put together during the closing. I have had nothing but good experiences with Darrell and would not hesitate to refer business to him. -Ken F.
I have become friends with Darrell after initially becoming business associates. I have found him to be of utmost character, very sincere, genuine and compassionate. Those are very rare traits in today’s business world. His knowledge and experience, with regards to real estate investing , is without question. He’s wise beyond his years and it’s that humble persona of his that really makes an impact with me. The man walks the talk which is another reason why I really enjoy his friendship. When I’m going through some difficulties, Darrell is there to lend an ear and offer some advice. He makes the time to hear me out regardless how busy his schedule is that’s pretty priceless in my book. I’ve found that anything Darrell says I can take him at his word knowing his word is gold and he stands behind what he says. He definitely stands apart from anyone else I’ve previously ever done any business with and that makes him pretty special to be able to call him a trusted friend, as well as a trusted business associate. -Glenn C.
I have known Darrell for many years as both a business associate and friend. He has exemplified nothing but the highest level of professionalism and integrity. It is crucial to surround yourself with honest and truthful business sources. I would recommend Darrell as one of those sources. Because of the dollar amounts involved, one bad decision can be disastrous to anyone. Having the proper influence to minimize the chances of this happening to you is vital! Darrell will look out for your interest and give you an honest opinion whatever the circumstances are. -James E.
