      Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Blossom Valley, San Jose, CA.
      Derek helped us purchase our home in this crazy housing market of 2014. The home we purchased had multiple offers and Derek helped us navigate the process and help us get the home we really wanted. Derek is great to walk through homes with and has an attention to detail that in unsurpassed. I would use Derek again.  MoreLess

      Bought a home in 2013.
      Derek helped us find and buy our first home in the US and came recommended from a colleague of mine. I interviewed by phone several other possible agents, but Derek was a initially and throughout the process the most genuine and patient buyers agent I could hope for given our very specific/uncommon requirements and my many (many) questions as a first time buyer here. We had many long phone conversations and revisited some properties multiple times, and Derek was quite patient with our indecision and lack of local knowledge especially regarding the offer/closing process. We had a tight schedule and quickly narrowed down a specific area and type of property we would want to buy (after several months previously looking around multiple areas and open houses). Perhaps we were a little lucky with the property owner of the house we were interested in as he was keen to shift it as it had been on the market a while, however the fact is we only worked with Derek about 2&1/2 months from initial contact to closing, and met our goal of moving in before the new year - quite an achievement I think considering we'd only been in the US since May. Derek was able to answer questions that were probably not even his job to answer, and was able to suggest multiple contractor options for renovations/updates (including his son which we did use for the water heater replacement job, which turned out fine after some initial miss-communications). Overall very happy we worked with Derek and would recommend him.  MoreLess

      Bought a home in 2014.
      Being first time buyers we were looking for a realtor who is committed, trust worthy, easy to reach out to, quick to respond and experienced. Derek was all this and much more. Since we were in a sellers market with multiple offers, we were very cautious about choosing the terms and contingencies while placing an offer. Derek's extensive knowledge about the property condition and the time he spent with us going over the disclosures helped us a lot while making those decisions. He has a very pleasing personality and helped us in anyway he could. We have a small baby and often reached late to our meetings but he totally accomodated with us and respected our time. We had worked with few Realtors before him but none devoted the kind of time he did . He works meticulously and was never pushy in any situation and gave us ample time to make decisions. We finally got our dream home after 7 months of search. Home buying is an exciting, scary and stressful time for anyone. We would happily recommend Derek to anyone looking to buy.  MoreLess
