    1. Derek
    2. was the only real estate agent that was able to help my parents sell their
    3. home. They had it on the market for YEARS. Other agents came into my parents'
    4. home judged it, devalued it & made them feel like they didn't have a chance
    5. at selling it for the price they were originally asking for. Enter Derek. From
    6. the moment he entered their home, he was respectful, helpful and most
    7. importantly - PRO ACTIVE. He was upfront with my parents, helped them work
    8. towards achieving their goal. In the end, Derek not only sold my parents' home
    9. but helped them move items out of the home, kept in constant contact to make
    10. sure everything went smoothly all the while he himself was going through a very
    11. tough personal time. Our family has gained not just a great real estate agent;
    12. we've gained a friend for life. You want someone to sell your house while
    13. respecting your home and your family, putting in long hours to make your
    14. expectations happen? Choose Derek as your agent. I promise you, you will not be
    15. disappointed.  Seller Virginia F.
    16. Derek
    17. worked tirelessly to help us find a house that we would enjoy in our
    18. retirement. He was very professional and knowledgeable and was able to answer
    19. all of our questions. He always made time to look at houses with us and never
    20. seemed discouraged when we decided that it was not the house for us. He spent
    21. hours going door to door, in the area that we desired, to see if there were any
    22. prospective sellers. This was definitely above and beyond a real estate
    23. agent's duties. We were so lucky to have had Derek as our real estate agent
    24. and would definitely refer him to any of our friends and family. Thank you
    25. Derek for all your hard work. You don't know how happy and excited we are to
    26. take possession of our new home. Buyers Robin and Rita.
    27. Derek
    28. is a true professional. From the first time we spoke on the phone to the
    29. completion of sale we were provided with more information on our first phone
    30. call than we received in our entire first time buying a home. We looked at
    31. properties WE wanted to see to find out more of what we need. Once he knew
    32. enough about what we needed, he helped us find what would suit our needs best.
    33. Derek was the light at the end of the tunnel for us after our first time home
    34. buying experience. We cannot express enough gratitude to Derek for what he has
    35. done for us, and recommend him to everyone that wants an honest and Loyal
    36. Realtor that works for YOU.  Buyers Thomas and Sherri S.
    37. My
    38. husband and I stumbled upon our dream home and within a few hours had made an
    39. offer that was accepted, conditional on the sale of our home. We wanted to list
    40. immediately with a tight closing date. Derek had sold the home across the
    41. street and took the time to introduce himself to the neighbourhood so he was
    42. our first thought when choosing an agent. Derek demonstrated professionalism
    43. and commitment right from the word go. Within one day he had our home looking
    44. picture perfect and within three days we received multiple offers allowing us
    45. to accept an offer well above asking and within our time frame. I credit our
    46. success to Derek's marketing skills and tenacity. He takes such pride in his
    47. work that you feel he is in it with you. His customer service and attention
    48. to detail is exceptional and I would recommend Derek enthusiastically to
    49. friends and family.  Sellers Allison R. and Allan A.
    50. We liked Derek as soon as we met him. He was very approachable and made us feel
    51. comfortable by letting us know he was willing to help us whenever we were ready
    52. to start looking. This made us feel like we were in control and could set our
    53. own pace for the whole process. He was extremely knowledgeable and was always
    54. available and willing to answer any questions that we had. He understood
    55. exactly what we were looking for and found us the perfect house. We couldn't be
    56. happier!! Buyers Kirby and Adam P.
