Team Derrick Coates Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Our experience with Agent Derrick Coates excellent, he found the right house for us after taking the time to find out what we wanted even though we did not always know what we wanted.

Bob Barkell

My family and I had the privilege of working with Derrick and his team in purchasing a house.

Derrick was amazing! This is the 2nd time we have purchased a house and we definitely didn't have someone as well-versed in the business the first time around. We started out looking for an existing house. The first thing I could tell was that Derrick was on our side and working in our best interest. It wasn't about the sale. He pointed out potential future issues in the houses we looked at and let us know some of the potential future costs that it could run us. Especially if you're purchasing a fixer upper that's great information to have! We specifically wanted a move-in ready/turnkey. We eventually opted for a custom build with a local builder and it went incredibly smooth! Derrick negotiated on our behalf and went to bat when I had questions or concerns. I always felt comfortable knowing that we were in great hands with Derrick and his team. April was also amazing! Anytime I had questions about the process or the paperwork I knew I could call (and I did) and she, too, had the expertise to answer them. I also found the electronic paperwork that was emailed to me very convenient with my work schedule. Derrick and his team are kind, patient, and will be truthful about the house you're looking at. Very professional and definitely make it known that they're on your team.

Great realtor.

Made the process very easy. Has knowledge of the sierra vista and surroundings area. Answered our questions was available to talk. We had to get some items fixed prior to closing, he got a contractor out there to make it happen so we could close on time. Hands down one of the best in the area. Our process was so easy, our neighbor is using him to sell her house. I can not express in words how satisfied we are with him, his team and the process.

Derrick was good!

He helped me find my first home. He understood the type of property I was looking for. Over the course of 3 months we analyzed and placed bids on multiple properties until we finally landed a great deal. If you are interested in real estate investing in Sierra Vista Derrick is your realtor! I was able to do the transaction remotely from California thanks to Derrick and his team.

As a Military Member it’s very stressful continuously moving to serve your country.

From my experience with Derricks Coates and the DC Team (exp Realty) I was tremendously satisfied with the support provided in trying to find my first home. I recommend this realty #1 overall within the Sierra Vista area due to Derrick Coates providing overachieving expectations


Our "interview" with Derrick occurred during a home showing.

We knew immediately he was our guy. He is personable, candid, responsive, and reliable, even offering timely and relevant insights to his clients. Despite our naivety, his explanations, solicited or not, proved thorough, ensuring we were well informed and equipped to make decisions throughout the selling and buying experience. He expertly managed all aspects of our transactions and brilliantly represented our interests in all negotiations. His involvement relieved us from the everyday stress of selling and buying our homes so we could focus on more important demands. When issues arose, his demeanor, level-headedness, and sensible approach were a welcomed assurance that geminated in resolving concerns quickly. Undoubtedly, Derrick is a professional closer.

Jeff and Laura Bonde

We lived out of town,so we needed him to go look at a house for us.

As a first time buyer, Derrick was extremely helpful.

He explained everything to me in a friendly, respectful, and professional manner. He found the perfect house for me and I fully believe he knew what I was looking for despite being unsure myself. I just moved in yesterday and can't be happier. Thanks Derrick!

Derrick is an amazing realtor.

He's very knowledgeable of the regional market, as well as the market overall. He went out of his way to help our family with necessary repairs before listing and/or after inspection. He's built a great team around him, especially April at the office. Their customer service and attention to detail is incredible.

Sonya Siefering

Huge thank you to Derrick and his team!

He was extremely knowledgeable about the local housing market. He listened to our requests for what we wanted in a property and was able to help us to later buy our brand new home. Derrick was always responsive to showing us houses we wanted to see whether it was during the day, night, or on the weekends. He walked us through the process of home buying from offer to closing and always made sure we understood the next steps. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for property in southern Arizona.

Justin M.

Very happy with the services rendered and the HONESTY!

Derrick knows our home preferences and even accompanied us to a house to view that was quite a distance. He is responsive to our questions and has set up interviews with builders. He gives us the good, the bad, and ugly when we visit a property. And an extra plus is his great sense of humor.

Vickie Bell

Derrick Coates is my go-to Realtor in Arizona.

I teach and coach Business to some of the best Real Estate entrepreneurs in the western region. Let me tell you something; Derrick is as good as it gets. He has a passion for the customer and a wise leader's emotional intelligence, making everyone's job easy. He sold my house as the market was tanking, and nobody could pull off the deal he put together. His service is impeccably designed and thought out. If you are looking for that big-time pro in a small town Derrick is your guy. If the market has you scared, listen to Derrick! Thanks for all the value you brought to our property!

"Sold our home in one day. (Same one that he helped us purchase 14-years ago). He worked hard to research and obtain the highest possible list price that fit the current market. Sold it for $10K over asking and $90K more than we had had hoped to get. He also helped calm our nerves a few times while we waited for the buyer to finally sell their home.We found Derrick to be the same caring, honest, and knowledgeable professional that helped us purchase the home 14-years ago."

"Derrick was excellent! He helped us buy our home and sell 4 years later. As first time homebuyers, he and April made the experience as stress free as possible. He was knowledgeable, responsive, and answered all of our questions. He was very responsive. As a person, Derrick is very down to earth, approachable, and happy to give advice about home selling, buying, preparing, market advice, etc. Working with him was a breeze!"

"Derrick was awesome in trying to help locate property in Arizona while we were living in another state. He was very receptive to questions, coordinated finding a lender that would work with us in another state, and escorted family members in the Arizona area to look at properties on our behalf. While we opted for another option, would definitely use Derrick Coates if we resume looking for housing in Sierra Vista, Arizona. Based on my contact with Derrick, I highly recommend him and his team. I did not rate the negotiation skills only because we did not get to that level in this process."
