Ratings & Reviews

Derek saved our family years of turmoil by negotiating an elegant and masterful solution with a tenant refusing to vacate. Derek met only once with our tenant; he engineered a kind and creative resolution that resolved our 5+ year headache within 2 weeks. If we ever have another legal problem, there is no one else we would trust to handle it as well. Thank you Derek!

Did not respond to my inquiry in Dexter Corner, New Durham, NH 03855.

Ok so I called Derek and asked him about a house I saw for sale on Zillow. I told him I'm in the military and would be using a VA loan that I was already approved for. I then asked him if he could send some more info and pictures of the place to by email like most do. He told me he is not the one who lists the house but just sells the place for the ones that are in fact selling the place. Now I'm lost I told him and he then told me he will not help me and if I had an issue to call zillow and make them aware if the issue. He was rude, did not want to help, raised his voice to talk over me, I just don't understand his attitude. If you want someone to help you buy a house that's in it just for the money and does not care about the buyers needs, then this guy with an aful mouth is for you. I have never been so disrespected in all my life. I'm sorry for ever calling this guy!  More Less

Unfortunately, this defamatory review was inappropriately posted to my profile. This was neither a client nor a customer of mine. The person who wrote the review, who is notably anonymous, was livid that they had reached an exclusive buyers agent rather than the listing agent for the property they were inquiring about. They could not understand why Zillow would post my profile next to someone else's listing and they were under the impression that I in some way controlled its placement (not Zillow). I treated this person with a greater level of respect than I received from them and offered to assist them with their inquiry. Unfortunately, people like this do exist out there and Zillow does not appear to have the ability to control the review process. The other reviews on my site were written by people that I have worked with (clients) and are reflective of my level of service and my professionalism.

Bought a home in 2011 in Northwood Center, Northwood, NH 03261.

Derek provided tremendous customer service and his knowledge of all matters relating to real estate and the communities throughout the region was simply outstanding. His legal expertise is most notable. His style is honest and you will know that he is 100% genuine and sincere in his desire to assist you in the best way possible. From the moment I made contact with Derek he remained engaged and insightful; I'm quite certain we would not have had such a smooth transition when we moved to New Hampshire from out of state if it wasn't for Derek. In fact, Derek checks in with us still to this day and we feel as though he is an important part of our extended family here in NH. Thank you Derek for your knowledge, for your attention to detail, and for simply being there both during and well after normal working hours (including weekends). You're the best!  More Less
