“ I just purchased an apartment in Berlin and the service from Darrell and team has been excellent! I can really recommend them. I am a South African and this is my first purchase in Berlin. I had very little knowledge of the Berlin property market and they really made the process simple and easy. I am considering buying more properties through them in future. ”

“I am really enjoying doing business with Tim and Darrell. Tim and his team have made a great job of acting on my behalf in the completion process of a new build apartment, making sure all the final works are carried out to a high standard. The apartment has been furnished to a very high spec which will make it attractive to short term tenants.

“ I don't believe I have ever worked with anyone as professional as Darrell and his associates. Living in the United States I obviously had some concerns in purchasing a flat in Berlin. However those all went away after talking with and then meeting Darrell and everyone that works with him. He can be trusted folks and is a genuine nice and honest man. I am halfway through my transaction and believe that everything will continue to fall into place as expected. I would reccommend Darrell and Buy-Berlin to anyone who asks me. ”

“ Darrell Smith made my decision to invest in a Berlin property an easy one. Although I was a first time property buyer and do not speak German, Darrell not only advised me on excellent and viable properties to invest in, but also ‘held my hand’ throughout the entire buying process in an uncomplicated and stress free way and for this knowledge and expertise I am very grateful to him. I would definitely recommend his services to all my friends and colleagues or anyone interested in acquiring a property in Germany. ”

“ I first worked with Buy Berlin in 2007. Darrell assisted me with finding an excellent property perfectly suited to my needs. Since then he has provided expert guidance and insight whenever required. Most recently he and Tim have coordinated a full renovation of my property to a high standard, and it is currently marketed to short term rentals. I look forward to continued business with the Buy Berlin team - they have my full and sincere recommendation. ”

“ I never thought buying an appartment could be an easy process, let alone the language barrier! With Darrell I felt confident from the beginning as he was extremelly dilligent in explaining the process and suggesting the right people to help locally with all the additional stuff (loans, notary, contract review, etc..) in English. He definitelly knows the market and how to make the process an easy one. Highly recommended. ”
