Derek started in Real Estate at a young age, attending Open Houses with his father who’s been an agent for over 30 years. Now, Derek, mom, and dad are all licensed agents in California with a wealth of knowledge and experience. In the past 5 years, Derek has become one of the top agents in the area, highly regarded by his past and current clients and respected by other Realtors in the area. As a buyers agent he’s able to get his offers accepted at a higher rate than other agents. When working with sellers, he offers hyper-targeted marketing techniques to his clients to help them reach their goals by attracting the right buyers.

The Real Estate business can be volatile with shifting markets, new gimmicks, and ever-changing technology. Because of this, Derek is constantly focused on the future and how to provide the best services and the most value to his clients. So much of real estate is done behind the scenes and Derek uses systems, technology and data to give his clients the highest chances of success.

Prior to Real Estate, Derek received a B.A. in History and M.S. In Sports Business. He has used those entrepreneurial skills to start several businesses, including a social media marketing and design business which allows him to deliver exceptional marketing, social media, and video tools to his clients. Derek worked at the Rose Bowl during it’s renovation, as Cam Newton’s NFL Player promoter for the United Way and spent all of his 20s working at Foothill Horizons Summer Camp and was even the Director for 6 summers. He currently lives in East Bay with his wife, Jen, daughter Emerson, and their Goldendoodle, Nana.
