Derek prides himself on tackling even the most difficult and complex real estate transactions. His compassion, integrity and straightforward attitude allow him to swim through the murky waters of the real estate market and sooth his clients concerns. It is also his strong belief that although the sale or purchase of a home is a serious and stressful process, he believes that keeping your sense of humor is of utmost priority.A decade long career in various high end building trades have given him a solid background in construction techniques and standards that assist him in judging the value of any home. This insight allows his buyers and sellers to have a deeper level of confidence when confronted with obstacles during the real estate transaction.Derek has been mentored by an industry-leading agent and is always looking for his next challenge. Viewing education as the single greatest advantage to separate himself from other REALTOR®s, Derek seeks coursework in order to continually enhance his skill sets and feed his passion for the industry while exceeding his client's expectations.Passionate about sports, politics and art, Derek can be seen with his wife, Alanna, exploring Philadelphia, speaking with neighbors as a member of the community association board, and getting up early on the weekend to watch English futbol in the spring and American football in the fall with his dog Oscar.…And remember every home needs a John…actually two full and one half Johns.
Derek worked quickly and was in constant communication about what was available. After about a week of searching for rentals, he then had to switch gears after our decision to purchase a home instead of continuing to rent. Derek handled the new task at hand with enthusiasm and a very high degree of professionalism. He is personable and amazing to work with, and from the moment we met, we knew we were in good hands. Through the stress of negotiation, home inspection and receiving a lower than expected appraisal value, Derek was right there with us and we are thankful to have had him on our side. We look forward now to our closing in just a few weeks and would definitely recommend him, without a second thought, to other prospective buyers or renters.
