Find your home...
and so much more!
I'm Derek, your Monmouth County real estate expert.
This area is my home. I’ve owned a house here since 1997. It’s where my wife and I were married, where our children were born, and where they are growing up… a little too quickly. I’m proud to be your local real estate expert with almost fourteen years of experience representing my clients in the purchase and sale of property. I’m committed to your success in reaching your goals, and I will be there with you every step of the way with the integrity and professionalism that you deserve.
I am proud of my reputation as a full-service Realtor. From listing your property on the MLS for the ideal price, to making sure it’s seen in the best possible light and aggressively marketed, to guiding you through the intricacies of negotiations and the successful close of escrow.
Home buying and selling can be a stressful experience, and I make sure to always maintain open lines of communication, aid you in setting realistic expectations, efficiently managing all transaction details and ensuring the necessary paperwork is thorough and complete.
Real Experience Matters
I have been doing this a long time and stay attuned to the pulse of the current market. I have experience in negotiating not just the best price, but also the contract terms important to my clients. And I know how to successfully navigate through any issues that may arise along the way.
When you need me, I’ll be there. You can text, call or e-mail me whenever you have a question or concern and rest assured that I will answer. I can also offer expert professional referrals for whatever services you may need.
Why Monmouth County?
Simply put… There’s truly no other place like it. It’s all here. From our wonderful parks, historic sites and beautiful Jersey Shore beaches and boardwalks, to our vibrant downtowns with their fantastic shopping, dining and entertainment options. This area is famous for its music, arts, and cultural scenes. Plus, we’re just a short ride to either New York City or Philadelphia, making the county a popular retreat for daily commuters. We have lovely, friendly neighborhoods supported by great schools. And we have sprawling farms, ranches, and scenic orchards throughout, making Monmouth County a wonderful example of why this is the Garden State.
