"When we set out to select someone to help us sell our property we talked to a number of different Realtors, both from conventional brokerages and discount brokerages such as 1% Realty. Derek impressed us with his knowledge of the industry, his approach to strategy and his enthusiasm.
We never one regretted choosing Derek as our listing Realtor. He worked tirelessly to secure the best possible deal he could, as well as helping us with some aspects of our next purchase, which was above and beyond anything he was expected to do as our listing Realtor. We found his ethics and honesty above reproach, and his affable personality a pleasure to deal with.
When we were interviewing other prospective Realtors we were warned by more than one that “you get what you pay for” with discount brokerages. While this might be true with some, these people have obviously never met Derek. He worked as hard or harder than any Real Estate agent we have worked with to date, saving us tens of thousands of dollars in the process. He is eager to work for his advertised commission and there is never any doubt about who he is truly working for.”
"Derek has been a pleasure to work with. He is an excellent realtor, the best we've ever had and we've had many. We found him very thorough, always checking in on us and answering any questions quickly. We felt he had our backs, trusted him completely. Derek is kind, honest, respectful and professional, gets the job done! Our house sold in one weekend, 103,000 over asking! Derek looks after his clients extremely well! Thank you so very much Derek!!"
