“Derek handled three transactions for our family in the past 18 months and we couldn’t be more grateful for his skill and expertise!

About a year and a half ago, we met Derek while in search of our first home in South Pasadena. He patiently guided us through the first-time home buying process and helped us purchase a home that (against all odds in this market) was below market price. Derek never pushed us to make offers beyond our comfort level and had great market insight. As the red hot market evolved over the past year, we made a decision to sell our home and upgrade. Derek represented us in the sale, which resulted in an outcome that far exceeded our expectations and never would have expected.

He brought in excellent talent to stage, photograph and market the property and had great recommendations for painters and handy people for fixing up/making improvements to sell the property. Derek held several open houses and took endless phone calls from us to help navigate the process.

At the same time, Derek helped us purchase our second South Pasadena home, which we hope will be our “forever” home. He recommended a contractor, inspectors and other experts to check out the property and helped us make sure the property was structurally sound. With Derek’s guidance, we were able to make a winning bid on home that we love, and, even in the current environment, we don’t believe we overpaid. In short, Derek has been our South Pasadena real estate guru. He has incredibly deep knowledge of this market. We can’t imagine another agent that would have worked as tirelessly on our behalf or enabled us to secure three results that far exceeded our expectations.”

Derek holds undergraduate degrees from Purdue University, The Indiana University School of Music, and a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) from Vanderbilt University. He also used to work for The Walt Disney Company managing digital marketing.
