About Derek

As a seasoned mortgage professional, it is extremely important to me that I leave a lasting impression on my community. My mindset is that every day is an opportunity to grow—not only in my career, but also in my own development. It has always been my honor to be a stepping stone in others’ lives on the road to accomplishing their goals, and my career has enabled me to do that in a big way. With twenty plus years of experience, I have had the opportunity to work with an array of clients, including first-time homebuyers, high net-worth individuals and local heroes such as: our beloved veterans, police, firefighters, teachers and medical workers. Being that no one transaction is the same, the exposure to such a vast assortment of scenarios has given me a level of expertise that allows me to handle any situation.

In such a dynamic industry, an open and creative mind will generally succeed; so personally, I believe that my duty is to always keep an adaptive perspective. With one of the most unique real estate markets in the country, this same mindset has been the foundation of how my team and I have been able to fulfill a desperate need for conventional condo mortgage options in Las Vegas; and despite a volatile real estate collapse in 2008, we have re-established traditional financing options for over 100 condominium projects—ranging from $70,000 to $3 million—throughout the region. So whether you’re planning to purchase a single family home, condo, primary residence or investment, these wins—the difficult ones—are the scores that count, and setting ourselves apart in a world where most are intimidated is something in which I continue to pursue daily, understanding that it will give my clients more opportunity, less stress and most importantly, trust in their mortgage advisor to always have their backs.
