"I can not recommend DJ highly enough. He is professional, knowledgeable, and protects his clients throughout the sale process. He is transparent and shows interest in satisfying concerns of all parties, rather than rushing the process to make a quick sale. DJ's passion and integrity become very apparent at the first meeting, as he takes time to listen and cultivate a relationship with you. Schedule a meeting with him, you'll see what I mean."
- T.J. Austin
"DJ had a good understanding of the local housing market, the quality of homes in relation to potential selling price, and an ability to use a wide array of resources to advertise our home. We were very pleased with his attention to detail and participation in every aspect of our desired direction and outcome."
- JoAnna A.

"Was very prompt in responding to text and email. Was always willing to reach out to the seller or whoever was needed if the processes came to a slow point. Very professional and knowledgeable."
"I cannot express enough how amazing DJ is! He is attentive and professional. I could call him for the most simple question at 10pm and he would have an immediate answer for me. We are first time home buyers and couldn't imagine going through this process with anyone other than DJ. He tirelessly worked with the other realtor to get us the best deal and the information we needed to lower our home owners insurance. DJ walked us through every piece of information and allowed us to enter the house multiple times (maybe even too many times). He even found a nail with the bottom of his foot in our new backyard for us, taking one for the team. We will definitely recommend him to any of our friends/family that will be needing a realtor and if we ever need one in the future we wouldn't choose anyone else. Thank you for playing such an important role in our first-time home buying experience DJ! You really are the best!"
"We worked with DJ for a year and a half to find a home in MT. He is honest, hardworking, dedicated and so easy to work with. He returned our calls, answered our questions, and was very interested in finding us just the right property. He took so much time with us, driving around, looking at different properties and we never felt like he was in a rush. We highly recommend DJ and know that he will make your home buying pursuit enjoyable and successful!"
- Jullie M.

- Douglas W.
"Seriously: Call DJ.
My wife and I contacted DJ before moving to Missoula and long before we were actually ready to buy a house. DJ knew this, and he provided amazing service from day one. He recommended that we see a lot of houses and get very familiar with the market before buying, even though that certainly meant more work for him. He worked at all hours and across great distances to get us in to look at homes and provide further information on homes that were just coming onto the market. Missoula is a tough market for a buyer, but DJ helped us get in quickly and go the extra mile to make our offers as competitive as possible. Thanks to DJ, we had multiple offers accepted on competitive houses, and then ended up in the house that we wanted. Patrick B.
DJ successfully balances being personable and professional, and he never hesitated to explain complicated things to us in ways that we could understand. His additional knowledge of city planning and the full details of the Missoula housing market added to his ability to give us all the information we felt we needed to make big decisions about a home purchase. In the end, it was crystal clear that DJ's top priorities were to make us happy and get us into the house we wanted. DJ got us into a "for sale by owner" that required a lot of extra work on his end, and he never showed the slightest concern about it. I would recommend DJ to anyone looking for a good realtor in this tough market. I honestly can't say enough about him."
- Patrick B.
"Do not let his youthful looks deceive you, DJ Smith is wise beyond his years. As my first home buying experience, I walked into this with ZERO knowledge of how this process worked. From day 1 DJ's guidance and expertise put to bed any apprehension that I walked in the door with. He was attentive, listened and acted upon what we asked of him and most important of all always had our best interest ahead of anything else. I can’t wait to call on DJ again when purchasing my multi-million dollar dream home!! Great person, great real estate agent you can’t go wrong!"
- Mike H.
"DJ was quick to respond to our house hunting needs, honest, and knowledgeable about the market. He went out of his way to show us houses, speak with other realtor's and sellers, and find information to help inform our decisions. We recommend DJ!"
"Dj was very professional and I would recommend him to anybody that was interested in property or purchasing a house. He is very responsive and worked hard to answer all of the questions I had. This was my first time purchasing property and he made it a walk in the park."
- Brain B
"If you want a realtor, great, there are plenty out there. They're not hard to find. If you want a realtor that shows you houses, looks at ads with you and creates lists of potential dream homes, great, those realtors are out there too. However, if you want a realtor that becomes a part of your family, a realtor that gets in the ring and fights in your corner harder than anybody has ever fought for you before, then you call Derek Smith. You will not find one more caring, one more patient, and one more knowledgeable than him. I suggest to you home-buying/shopping friends that you sit down with him and see for yourself what Sold with DJ Smith can and will do for you."
- Preston P.
"DJ worked hard to get us our asking price. When the final signing came we knew exactly what we had and what to expect. Not only a great go getter, but now through it all a standing invite to visit anytime. Thanks DJ!"
"DJ is a very detail oriented and honest agent. He helped us with every need we had and made even the stressful process of buying and selling a house easy. When we needed advice or strategy suggestions, he gave us his honest advice - not just what we wanted to hear. I will have no problem referring any of my friends, family or total strangers to him if they need a home sold or bought."
- Terry T.
"We were put in contact with DJ when relocating to Montana. The whole process of selling our previous home and closing on the new home took about 4 months. We started looking for a new home around the holidays, and DJ was extremely accommodating when we decided to come up to scout out homes on short notice (twice!) Throughout the entire process, DJ was quick to respond to all questions, and was proactive everywhere he could be to make the process as easy for us as possible. He has vast knowledge not just regarding real estate in the area, but with regard to all facets of life in Western Montana. Working with DJ, the entire experience was as quick, painless, and stress free as relocating and purchasing a new home could be. He is truly someone who enjoys what he does, and makes certain that his buyers understand every detail, and get the best deal possible. He looks out for his buyers with the eyes of a hawk! We would ABSOLUTELY recommend DJ to anyone looking to buy a home."
- Steven B.
"DJ is one of the hardest working realtors I have ever seen. He is always available at the drop of a hat and is never too busy to answer any and all questions. He has a extensive knowledge of the local market including school districts, traffic, taxes , resale value and other key factors needed when looking to buy a home. DJ really makes you feel as if he is part of your team looking out for your interests and not just a commission. We Very highly recommend him!"
- Cord B.
"From day one, DJ was a major instrument to our home buying process. He gave us strong support throughout this anxious, frustrating, and highly emotional experience. He was patient , and explained so much of the mystery of home buying to us. Twice sometimes ! His help in our search for the right home was a very enjoyable and memorable experience. I was sometimes uncertain that any of this was going to work, so DJ`s hard work and perseverance in our search exceeded my expectations. He was always up for it even though I sometimes felt doubtful about success. Thanks DJ for being so courteous, respectful and tolerant of us. I will always be grateful. And we will be glad to refer you to any of our friends or acquaintances too."
"DJ helped us buy our first home. He was able to work around two very busy schedules and was able to accommodate for all our wants and needs. DJ loves what he is doing and it shows in his work. He is engaged, on time and extremely proactive. DJ will get you into the home you love. I will highly recommend him to everyone I know who is looking to buy or sell."
- Taylor B.
"DJ is an enthusiastic young realtor who really has the best interest of his clients in mind. He is intelligent and extremely motivated. DJ will go above and beyond to help you find the home you need. We as first time home buyers had limited time with two busy work schedules and he was able to make accommodations so we could buy a home. From meeting at 7 AM to a late night Sunday phone call, DJ was always receptive to our many questions and concerns. He will work hard to get you in the home you love."
"DJ was great to work with! He was friendly and professional. Also very helpful and answered any questions we had. He also had to do some digging to find information on the home that we needed for our FHA loan and he did so quickly so we were able to close a few days early! I would definitely recommend working with DJ if you are in the market to buy or sell your home."
