Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Southeast Crossing, Aurora, CO.

Derek was by far the best Realtor I have worked with. He was very knowledgeable about the area, super responsive and was even available to us while on vacation! His staff are very helpful and wonderful to work with. We felt that we could trust him immediately, he has a lot of knowledge about how a home will re-sell and isn't afraid to let you know if it's not a good investment. We are so thankful to have worked with Derek and would recommend him to anyone buying or selling!  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Southeast Crossing, Aurora, CO.

Derek and his team were on the ball from the first moment that I contacted them. I needed to close on a house QUICKLY and he made it happen by immediately getting me set up on their house-looking database and getting me out looking at houses that weekend. I always felt like I was their sole client and Derek's personal history as both a realtor and an investor helped to find a home that my family would love and also be a good investment. Most importantly, I believe that Derek is incredibly helpful in at he tells you when something is outside his expertise. He'll give you his opinion, but immediately follows it by telling you that it may be outside his body of knowledge. ANY realtor can know a lot about real estate, but they can sure get you into trouble when they start speaking with authority about things that are outside their expertise. Derek is not one of those realtors and his humility allows him to be confident in what he does know (and he knows a lot!), but also humble enough to say what he doesn't know. Besides, he's just a cool guy who anyone would want to be their friend, so it makes the whole process personable and comfortable! I'm glad to be able to write a review for him and to move into our new home!  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Centennial, CO.

Derek did a great job for us in selling our home. Derek gave us excellent advice as we prepared to list our home. Once on the market, Derek developed an effective marketing plan and strategy which helped us to sell our home with multiple offers on the first day. I highly recommend Derek to buy or sell a home!  More Less
