Derek was an integral part of our pricing strategy keeping us grounded and giving us solid advice on offer scenarios in order to get the best value. Being a buyers agent in a sellers market is no easy task. Derek handled it with professionalism and grit. We highly recommend him!”

Dedrick Hall

Buyer from Beverly Hills

Derek listed my home and followed through during this whole Covid 19 ordeal. He is responsive, always responding very quickly to my texts, e-mails and phone calls. Derek is very courteous, and professional, he walked me through the entire process. Overall, I am more than happy with the price I got and the time it took to sell my home. If I ever need a realtor again, my first call will be to Derek.
