Derek and Ashton have handled our recent home sale, and we could not have been more happy. This was actually the 3rd time we engaged their services (one home purchase, two sales). Both Ashton and Derek are highly professional, ethical, skilled and efficient in every aspect of the home buying or selling process. Everything they do is top notch and a level above most everything else I have seen in this business. On top of that, Ashton and Derek are a pleasure to deal with and very responsive to any request. Also, their extensive experience has come through for us on several occasions: No matter what problem may arise, Ashton and Derek have seen it all and always have a solution. We've been very grateful to have this team work for us, and can highly and whole-heartedly recommend them!
Ashton was very instrumental in preparing my home for photos and open house in order to reach my final goal. He assisted in making this process as painless as possible. We staged with existing furniture as the home was still being occupied and expense and time were a consideration. He also assisted me in finding a means for me to remove debris and put my home in the most professional light for presentation.
This father /son team went above and beyond in accommodating me in my particularly difficult circumstance and were sensitive to my situation.
Ashton was extremely professional and was readily available to respond to phone calls or messages in a timely manner. They are down to earth good neighbors that you can trust.
I appreciate all that they have done and would recommend them to family and friends.
I recently bought a home working with Ashton and team. Throughout the process Ashton explained the various steps, things to look for and worked with me to make a competitive offer on the house. In addition Ashton was very responsive in showing me various homes, methodical in completing the paperwork and also navigating the steps through the offer acceptance and loan paperwork.
As a first time home buyer in California his experience and knowledge helped me get through what is usually a very stressful decision. I would highly recommend him.
The Miller Team is well-equipped to get you the best deal on a home. Whether you are buying or selling, they will get the job done with professionalism, low stress, and dollars in your pocket. I bought with them, and this father (Derek) and son (Ashton) team is a dynamic duo! They got me the house I wanted for a small price in a multiple offer situation. Their negotiation skills are unparalleled. They have a plan and believe me, you want them on your side in a real estate negotiation. They know the Santa Clara area well and if they don't know your area they will get to know it so they can do the best job they can for you too! Utilize the Miller Team's expertise and you are sure to get top dollar if you are selling and pay as little as possible for the home you want when buying. I couldn't give a higher recommendation.
I would like to recommend "The Miller Team," who are comprised of Derek Miller, a seasoned agent of 40 years, and Ashton Miller, Derek's son, who proved he is as knowledgable and professional as his father and mentor. I met Derek several years ago when he was canvassing the area. He advised me he had been working the area for years, and he informed me of many items specific to the area and features of my condo community. When I decided to sell, I called Derek because he was impressive and personable. I then met his son, Ashton, who was equally impressive. This team not only advised me how to make my home more marketable, they also came up with a sure fire pricing strategy to generate more interest from prospective buyers. Ashton even moved furnishings around to make my home look like a model! I really liked how the team consistently looked after my best interests, so I would receive the best proceeds possible. Concluding, I am VERY happy with the proceeds and excellent service. I HIGHLY recommend "The Miller Team."
Ashton was instrumental in helping me buy a house in a hot seller's market. He's knowledge of the property and the area is unmatched.
He established a great relationship with the sellers, which turned out to be critical in final price negotiation.
He was very responsive during the whole process, I can always count on him being there whenever I had questions or needs.
Even after the sale closed, he is always eager to help me settle into my new home. I highly recommend Ashton!

If ever there was a seller who needed some hand holding it was me. Derek and Ashton did everything from helping with tenants who needed to vacate prior to the sale to working with my Home Owners Association and finding and working with the best and most reasonable contractors. Derek is a genius at marketing, that was the first thing that I noticed, he had a plan from day one. I had my doubts because I fought him on staging and painting, but he was right about EVERYTHING and my home sold for a shocking amount over asking price. Derek and Ashton were generous with their time, answered even the most ridiculous questions that I had, kept me from panicking through the process, even went shopping for countertops with me. You could not ask for more from an agent. My home closed less than a month from the day of the open house because Derek created so much on line buzz that people were waiting in line to see the house- that's what I mean by MARKETING GENIUS. I had 5 good offers within 3 days of the open house. There are many agents out there, but none that will guide you through the process and spend the amount of time and resources that Derek and Ashton will to make your home stand out. I so appreciate their good work that I had to review them so others won't miss out on the best realtors in town.
Derek and Ashton, both long-term residents and realtors of Santa Clara helped us locate and secure a property in the crazy SF market. Although they were initially unfamiliar with the many nuances of buying in the City, I believe their years of experience in contract negotiations and understanding how offers are interpreted by sellers ultimately led to us paying less for the property than we had hoped.
Twelve years ago, Derek Miller was the listing agent for the home we purchased. We found him very polite, astute, and professional with our concerns at all parts of the negotiation, as well as after. So it was easy for us to make a mental note that we would like to have Mr. Miller as our agent if we ever put our home for sale in the future.
We have just finished closing and have not been let down by our decision. We were under contract in less than five days for over our asking price. Derek has fantastic marketing tools at his disposal, and he keeps you well aware (texts, e-mails, phone calls and more) of how he is positioning your property in the marketplace. With his experience, he was able to cut off trouble with our HOA, a mistake by a county assessor, and the fools who installed a solar system for our HOA, but put a lien for the $100K system against only our county parcel.
All of those professionals suggested and used by Derek Miller, to include the contractor he suggested for light work, his home inspector, termite inspector, and the title company, were all top-notch and helpful beyond their fees.
Derek Miller will always be our Realtor and who we suggest to friends and family.

Derek was extremely helpful in getting our property ready for sale. Both he and Ashton did a wonderful successful and professional open house on both a Sat. and Sunday and were able to secure us two offers within a few days of the open house. Both Derek and Ashton worked to get us the best possible deal and we are extremely pleased with the outcome. There are a few other condos in our complex that have been on the market for a long time but we feel it is due to Derek and Ashton's professionalism and diligence that we were able to sell in such a short amount of time. We feel that the whole transaction was handled in an excellent, professional way and we couldn't have asked for a better experience.
