Here is what Darren's clients have to say about him:


  • Darren is one of the best realtors you can find. He was extremely responsive and knowledgeable for any buyer. Since we were searching for our first home, it was crucial for us to have Darren by our side to guide us through every step. Darren listened to all of our concerns and always kept our best interest at heart. He also always did his best to work with our schedule to show us viewings within a timely manner. Most importantly, he was very prepared to get us the best contract on our house. I really appreciated that Darren could be a resource for literally anything: curtains, utilities, security, etc. He is necessary for a first-time home owner or for anyone in search of a talented agent. Lastly, Darren takes the effort and time to establish a relationship of trust and reliability. He will truly go above and beyond to make sure you are happy with your purchase. I couldn't recommend him enough and I will certainly be using him for all my future real estate transactions!


  • I couldn't have asked for a better house hunting experience with Darren as my realtor. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the current real estate market, and was able to negotiate for an excellent deal on my first house. I would recommend him to anyone that is in need of an outstanding realtor.


  • Darren was very professional and provided much needed advice throughout the process. He sold the property much more quickly and for a much higher asking price than what we thought was possible.


  • Darren is the best. He patiently walked me through the search and buying process. I am sure I drove him crazy, but he was so patient and kind. I highly recommend him!


  • Darren made the home buying process a BREEZE!! We can't sing his praises enough! My fiancé and I are both first time home buyers in addition to myself being new to Houston. We're also amidst planning for a wedding in March and me starting a new job. Going into purchasing a home, to be honest was dreading the process and the massive list of to-dos, but with Darren he takes it one step at a time and breaks down every step! Even just looking for a home, my fiancé was quite particular and also having first time buyer nerves and he was so patient and always had the time to talk us down! Even after the close of our home, Darren is still coming over prior to move in to help us with pre-move in contractors! Will gladly have Darren be our realtor for life in Houston if he'll have us. Fantastic realtor!


  • Darren is the epitome of a true people person. He is tenacious in his pursuit of perfection and is highly recommended by me. I won't fail to use him with every transaction I have.


  • It was a pleasure working with Darren. He went out above and beyond to make sure everything went well. Thank you Darren and we would definitely be using your services again in the future.


  • I've known many realtors. I've bought and sold a house before this, to decidedly mixed results. My mother was a realtor and I spent much of my childhood listening to people discuss houses, the market, etc. Darren is by far the best real estate agent you could ever hope for. Honest, knowledgeable, and always straight with you, he'll listen as much as he'll explain and make sure 1) you have the experience you need and 2) you get the best property for all the right reasons. I'd recommend Darren to anyone even remotely thinking about buying a property. He won't push you into it if you're not ready, but either way, you'll get all the information you need to make a decision each step of the way. And you'll have a good time going through the process each step of the way. He prepares you for everything so that there are no surprises. I'd call Darren immediately!


  • Darren is not only an honest and genuine person, but he¿s a diligent and hardworking realtor that placed our needs first. I can't speak higher of this realtor both personally and professionally.


  • Darren was incredible working with our family and finding what we needed. Having a large family, it wasn't easy finding the size we needed and also fitting it within our budget. Darren tirelessly searched and searched for us until he found the perfect match. Even when we were discouraged, disappointed and about ready to give up, Darren continued to encourage and support us and never once shared in our negativity. If it were not for his tenacity and perseverance, we would not be living in our new home... and it is PERFECT!!!! Thank you, Darren, for being so dedicated to your profession and always providing an extraordinary level of customer service. Any one who uses you as their Realtor have truly found a treasure!


  • Darren is outstanding. It's not easy moving across the country on short notice, but he made every step he was in charge of easy and comfortable. He made moving from NY to Houston a clear, straightforward process and used good humor and kindness the entire time - even when we had trouble deciding on a house at the last minute. Anyone would be lucky to work with Darren as a realtor.


  • Darren was a blessing to have found in helping find our new home in Houston. Being 12 hours away in a different state made things difficult, however, Darren went out of his way to make sure we not only found a place, but we found a place perfect for myself and my wife. Even when we found the "perfect" home at one point, he was incredibly professional in explaining some details and things involved with the property that he felt may not be the best fit. We are glad we listened as we found a great home to start our family in. Darren is friendly, punctual, honest, professional, and passionate about helping those around him find what they are looking for. He also showed up on move in day to bring us water and ensure that we were happy. Darren is an incredible realtor, and I am proud to consider him a true friend, and confident that he can and will provide the utmost in service to others.


  • Darren was very confident in his knowledge of the housing market we were searching in so it gave us some reassurance that our pricing was in the market. Most of all Darren was candid about his opinion. He would tell us in a very professional way what he liked and didn't like about our choices. That is hard to find even from a friend. You may ignore his opinion but he gives you a real one, not a fake one. I would highly recommend Darren Upp as your realtor. He handled all of the negotiations and all of the paperwork and we had no problems. Very smooth transaction.


  • Darren was an incredible resource to me as a first-time homebuyer and gave me all the information I wanted and needed throughout the entire process. I would recommend him without reservations to my friends.


  • We are so lucky to have found Darren during our home search process! My fiancé and I were having lots of problems finding the perfect place for us, as lots of realtors are hard to get in contact with. From the first house we met Darren at, he was informative, patient, and Helpful. Furthermore, after signing the lease on our house and discovering a few major issues, Darren stayed involved and has been helping us to resolve all the issues. He truly does care about his clients and goes above and beyond to make sure the houses we find become homes. I'd highly recommend him to anyone!


  • Darren Upp is the most professional realtor I have met. He answered all our questions in a timely matter. He was always on top of the houses that would come up in the area we wanted! I recommend Darren Upp as a realtor with a 5 (out of 5) star rating!


  • Darren made the home buying process incredibly simplistic and seamless. This is my first time purchasing a home but Darren took the time and did his due diligence. During our first meeting he described the entire process, we came to a mutual understanding on expectations and communication styles which I truly appreciate. He really took away much of the "worry" for me because I trusted his professional expertise and experience. I'm a busy working professional and was able to receive timely communication in a method that worked best for me.


  • Darren was very accommodating and understanding. Aside from being a true professional, he's a joy to work with and offers a nice personal touch.

He was knowledgeable about what he was doing, confident and friendly. I would definitely recommend Darren to anyone looking for a property who cares about quality and attentiveness. Moving is never fun or easy but


  • Darren made it something I hardly had to worry about. If i had a question or concern i would text him and he would immediately reply. He probably has no idea but these little things really helped me alot during this strenuous time when things can go either way at any moment. He took the time to make everything quick and smooth as he possibly could. Thank you Darren for your efforts that do not go unnoticed. Keep up the amazing work!!

  • I can't possibly express how pleased I am with the service we received with Darren. I highly recommend him.


  • This realtor is very thorough and did a good job at explaining to me from start to finish and was very helpful in making the sale smooth sailing and if I had questions/issues, made it a point to resolve whatever issues with the buyer.


  • Mr. Upp was always friendly and professional. Made my wife and I feel early on that he was someone on whom we could rely. When we felt like we were in a jam, he reassured us and provided us with the information needed to make a good decision. Looking forward to working with Darren in the future.


  • He is a great Realtor and a great man.
