Derek was a terrific realtor and we would not hesitate to use his services again. He knew the area well and was not only able to give us information on available houses but also neighborhoods, dry cleaners, restaurants - everything! Very personable, upfront and honest - couldn't ask for more!

Derek is the consummate real estate broker. He has assisted me in my search for existing properties that could be combined, an arduous task involving disparate ownership. With his energy and willingness to pound the pavement, when a roadblock does arise, he looks for ways around it. Language barrier with existing owner? He'll procure translation services. Unknown ownership? He'll search the land records himself. But beyond his technical skills as a broker, he's also extremely friendly (which I believe is an asset in any negotiation) and knowledgeable about the local markets (which is helpful to any buyer or seller).
Derek was very active and proficient as our Real Estate Broker since our first meeting to the closing of our recently purchased Condo in Westchester. He stayed diligent and always kept on course to meet our needs and answered the many questions we had as first time buyers. He made our first home purchase a real good transparent experience with his support and great attention.

My fiance and I were searching for our first home together in the Westchester area and were referred to Derek through a friend. Derek was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and really helped point us in the right direction for a forever home that would work for us. He was extremely patient with our many (and I mean MANY) questions. I would definitely recommend Derek to anyone looking for a new home.

Derek was super friendly, helpful, professional, and efficient. I recommend him highly. He helped us find movers and made sure all the details of our rental were attended to. You're in good hands!

Derek recently helped us buy our dream house in Larchmont. We cannot say enough positive things about him. He was extremely knowledgeable with an in-depth understanding of the local market. He was extremely patient with us and helped us sort through a number of options so that we could find the perfect home. He has also gone the extra mile by using his rolodex to introduce us to broad range of fantastic contractors to help us with renovations. If you’re looking for a personable, high integrity, low pressure broker with incredible drive and work ethic in the Westchester region then Derek is your best option
