About Derrick

My mortgage career began in 2006 after a successful career in the customer service sector at AOL/Time Warner. As a Fortune 500 Top Sales Manager, I learned the necessary ingredients to achieve results. I now head up The Polder Group at CrossCountry Mortgage along with our Tucson branch at Broadway.

I'm devoted to helping my clients reach their goals by providing best-in-class products, terms, and client experience. This commitment to service resulted in recognition as a leader in the industry. The Polder Group has helped thousands of families, funding over a billion dollars toward homeownership here in Tucson. Our track record has cast us consistently among the top loan officers in Arizona, and nationally in the top 1% of my peers.

Coming from a military family, I was born in Athens, Greece, and raised in Tucson. I consider Arizona one of the most beautiful places in the world. I enjoy spending quality time with friends and family when not at work, often participating in sports and traveling.

My love for meeting new people, building friendships, and a passion for seeing Tucson grow have led me to support other ventures outside of real estate. These ventures include being an angel investor and fundraiser for Prep & Pastry and the affiliated restaurants, Commoner & Co., and Flora's Market Run. It has been an honor to support local organizations such as Tucson's Boys and Girls Clubs and the University of Arizona Wildcat Club. I'm an active board member for Tu Nidito, a volunteer and active member of Empower Coalition, Inc., and Honorary Commander of Davis Monthan Air Force Base.
