Ratings & Reviews

I had the pleasure of working with Derick when purchasing my first home this summer. From the start, he was a huge help. Being a first time home buyer, I did not know what to expect or what I really wanted/needed in a home. Derick was beyond patient and helpful and was always there to walk me through next steps. Derick is responsive, professional, smart, caring, and patient. By the end of the process, I felt like I was working with a family member. Even after the sale, Derick kept in touch to make sure everything was going well. That shows his character and what an amazing guy and realtor he is. I highly recommend Derick if you're looking for someone to help guide you through the process, address your concerns, and help you seal the deal in this very competitive housing market.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Seminary Hill, Alexandria, VA.

Derick did an exemplary job helping me find my first place. I was nervous about finding a good realtor; little did I know I would find the best! Working with Derick was a pleasure and made my first time home buying process painless. I especially appreciate his patience with my shifting parameters and no-pressure demeanor. Needless to say I will be singing Derick's praises to everyone I know who's thinking about house hunting!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in Alexandria, VA.

Derick is very professional and was a great asset in our home selling process. He is very responsive and made himself available during every step along the way. He provided an honest assessment of our house, and because of his knowledge of the local market he was accurate with his assessment. I would recommend Derick to anyone.

Sold a home in 2014 in Ballston-Virginia Square, Arlington, VA 22201.

I used Mr. Hammond for the sale of my condo in south Arlington and the purchase of my new condo in Crystal City. He is knowledgeable of the local market and realistic in his assessments. Most impressive was his rapid responses to any emails, phone calls, or texts. Derick was on top of the process, and he took care of many details in the background, so the process was much less stressful for me as a client. I recommended him to two friends, due to his professional service.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2014 in Landmark-Van Dom, Alexandria, VA.

Derick helped me find and purchase a condo earlier this year. While the process was not without its glitches, specifically the seller's agent failing to comply with agreed-upon repairs, Derick was very helpful every step of the way in getting through the final negotiations and closing the deal. I would highly recommend him and would certainly use him as my first choice of realtor in this area in the future.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Potomac West, Alexandria, VA.

Derick helped us sell our home in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, VA, and he helped us buy a new home nearby.

We had an great offer on our house within one week of listing it, thanks to Derick.

Here are the things we appreciated when working with Derick:

-Derick is an excellent listener and really paid attention to our wishlists and concerns. His memory is amazing.

-We always felt like Derick's #1 client. There was constant communication throughout the process.

-Derick had an extensive knowledge of the area and comparable listings.

-Derick easily handled logistics (appointments, creating contracts, etc.) and is detail-oriented.

-Derick worked within tight requirements for helping us find a new house and never tried to show us a house or neighborhood we didn't specify.

-Derick even showed up on moving day to help out!

We would definitely work with Derick again and would recommend him to others.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $250K in North Ridge-Rosemont, Alexandria, VA.

Derick is a consummate professional. I am a first time homeowner and Derick helped me find my first home. I was really focused on staying in my city which I was afraid would be out of my price range. He helped me focus in on exact neighborhoods where I would be able to find a home in my city within my budget. Most notably he helped me dwindle down the list of must haves in order to get exactly what I wanted and needed in my first home. He was not afraid to share his professional opinion to keep me focused on my priorities. Also he was an excellent adviser relating to what was a good offer, what I needed to negotiate for, and what issues were important or not important in my home inspection. Ultimately Derick added value to my home buying process more than just providing listings. He helped me find the perfect home for me and that is priceless.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Forest Hills, Washington, DC.

Derick has been my agent through five (5) real estate transactions. He is always responsive. He usually answers the phone on the first call and he returns messages very quickly. He is patient and handled my indecisiveness very well. I can't think of any criticisms. He is very familiar with the DC metro area and knows the market and the sale/purchase process extremely well. I would recommend him to anyone.

Bought a Other home in 2013 in Alexandria, VA.

This was my first time buying a house, and Derick was very helpful with the whole process. He responded promptly to all of my emails, and explained everything that I needed to have done. He was always available to meet up and look at houses if I asked him to. I will definitely be using Derick for any future purchases.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Alexandria, VA.

Derick is one of the most pleasant people I've ever worked with in any capacity! My fiance and I were a bit nervous when we started our first-time real estate search, but Derick helped us through every step of the way. He really *listened* to us throughout the whole process, and ultimately found and coached us through purchasing our home in Alexandria. Derick is super honest, very realistic, and he also has a great sense of humor. We've already recommended Derick as a realtor to a friend of ours looking to purchase a home in DC. We feel so lucky to have worked with Derick. Our home buying experience was stress-free, easy, and fun...and it was all because of Derick's amazing expertise, helpfulness, and demeanor!
