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!

Sold a home in 2013.
My wife and I have used several real estate brokers to sell homes in other states over the past 14 years (RI, MA), but we have never felt more confident and pleased with the level of service that Derick provided in the recent sale of our Alexandria, VA townhouse. Derick was always on time for our meetings, his consultation on setting the appropriate sales price was 'Dead on', he came by to insure our house prep was the best it could be, he negotiated collaboratively with the buyers agent. Derick was meticulously dressed, incredibly professional and at the end of the day, we received multiple bids and sold our townhouse in FIVE DAYS! - with an Offer Above the Asking Price. We can only say this - if you want THE BEST! in this field, Derick Hammond is 'Second to None'! You will be very pleased with his work. Unquestionably, we will use him again if/when we do another real estate transaction. If we could give a 6th Star in each Category, Derick would most certainly deserve a 6th Start across the Board. He's FANTASTIC! Keith Brailsford, Alexandria, VA

Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Petworth, Washington, DC.
We worked with Derick for two months to find a home in the District. We were new to the area and hadn't ever experienced such a fierce seller's market. He was knowledgeable, patient and quickly discerned what we wanted in a home. While he was always willing to show us our own suggestions, he ended up knowing what was a good fit for our family probably better than we did.

He handled negotiations with sellers and realtors professionally, and always worked around our schedules.

And to top it all off, he's just a lovely guy and pleasant to be around; I've already recommended him. While we hope to be in our new home for quite a while (we love it), we wouldn't hesitate to use Derick as our agent again.

Bought a home in 2012.
Derick was very helpful and flexible in working with our schedule. He was very professional and listened to our needs and what we were looking for! We couldn't be happier with the service he gave us. He represented us well and we are thrilled with our new home!

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $375K in Shaw, Washington, DC.
Mr. Hammond is willing to go the extra mile when assiting with a home purchase. He is always reachable and thinks outside of the box when negotiating with a seller. I was able to make an eduacated offer on my purchase based on his knowledge of the market and location. The seller eventually lowered their price and offered other concessions. I owe the success of our negotiations to Mr. Hammond.

Sold a Condo home in 2000 in Dupont Circle, Washington, DC.
I am one of Derick's returning customers. He has been my agent during two real estate purchases and one real estate sale. Throughout all transactions I was very satisfied with his communication, dedication and energy. He knows the District and surrounding areas extremely well. I have recommended him to several friends and will continue to recommend him.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Downtown, Washington, DC.
Now that all the paperwork is done, and we have the keys in hand for our condo, I wanted to let you know how lucky we were to find you and have you on our team. We were impressed from the start. When showing us property you were always on time and had a key to let us in. I know this is a low bar to impress, but you would be surprised how rare a trait it is! And that was only a first impression. You continued to impress us with your knowledge of the property, the neighborhoods and your uncanny ability to find a parking place in DC. You found us the exact property we were looking for and didn’t seem to mind showing us every property in the District that met our requirements; sometimes the same property more than once. Thank you for the care you took to follow up on all aspects of that critical time between the sales contract and settlement. A lesser agent might have dropped the ball. We look forward to working with you again. Look for some referrals too!
