What is wrong with:

=DCount("[ExpiredID]","tblExpiredListings","DiffAgentDateRelisted BETWEEN #" & [Forms]![frmExpiredListingReportDateRange]![txtStartDate] & "# AND #" & [Forms]![frmExpiredListingReportDateRange]![txtEndDate] & "#" & " AND [ListingAgent] = '" John Doe "'")

Your're missing some ampersands.  If you always want it to be John Doe, why not:

=DCount("[ExpiredID]","tblExpiredListings","DiffAgentDateRelisted BETWEEN #" & [Forms]![frmExpiredListingReportDateRange]![txtStartDate] & "# AND #" & [Forms]![frmExpiredListingReportDateRange]![txtEndDate] & "#" & " AND [ListingAgent] = 'John Doe'")

you can combine your literals -- you also have an extra quote mark and spaces'
=DCount("[ExpiredID]","tblExpiredListings","DiffAgentDateRelisted BETWEEN #" & [Forms]![frmExpiredListingReportDateRange].[txtStartDate] & "# AND #" & [Forms]![frmExpiredListingReportDateRange].[txtEndDate] & "# AND [ListingAgent] = 'John Doe'")

Open in new window

 I like to use . instead of ! when referring to controls.

Try this.

=DCount("[ExpiredID]","tblExpiredListings","DiffAgentDateRelisted BETWEEN #" & [Forms]![frmExpiredListingReportDateRange]![txtStartDate] & "# AND #" & [Forms]![frmExpiredListingReportDateRange]![txtEndDate] & "# AND [ListingAgent] = 'John Doe '")
