From the first day over 10 years ago when Derek TRANSITIONED into the REAL ESTATE business from his corporate business, his DREAM had always been to open his own BOUTIQUE LIKE ADVERTISING REAL ESTATE FIRM. A firm where strategic individuals or 'PARTNERS' with strong strategic business backgrounds would COLLABORATE to better each other and their clients. In the last 10 years, the SUCCESS has become an AMAZING REALITY, as clients have witnessed the CREATIVITY behind Derek's successful STRATEGIC MARKETING APPROACH. A true CORPORATE APPROACH to real estate or like Derek likes to call it, 'FROM BOARDROOMS TO LIVING ROOMS'. This APPROACH is what DIFFERENTIATES him while STRIVING to have the best client service platform in the business. In Real Estate, Derek felt there was a GAP when it came to truly MARKETING A HOME. Driving AWARENESS of a home through the right strategic advertising channels – not simply relying on MLS and waiting for the phone to ring. Defining the TARGET MARKET, creating a STRATEGIC MARKETING PLAN SPECIFICALLY FOR YOUR HOME and going after BUYERS instead of waiting for buyers to call on properties. THAT HAS BEEN THE POINT of his brand over the past 10 years which has now TRANSITIONED him into opening his new FIRM, THE PARTNERS REAL ESTATE.
DEREK OPENS PERSONAL OFFICE 2017
Having opened his OWN PERSONAL OFFICE LOCATION in 2017, Derek wanted to be UNIQUE with his approach and felt that DIFFERENTIATING with a personal office would headline his out of the box thinking while giving his clients a great place to come and discuss everything there is to discuss about REAL ESTATE. His 2017 DECISION LAUNCHED him into a STRENGTH POSITION as since then he has quickly become known as an INDUSTRY LEADER. Derek's INCREDIBLE 2020 sales performance and his RECORD TRENDING 2021 results have created the PERFECT TIMING to launch THE PARTNERS REAL ESTATE. Derek's RECENT SALES before launching THE PARTNERS include a close to $20 million waterfront, an incredible sale in the BP's at almost $8 million with NO VIEW, an almost $3.850.000 sale for a 4200 square foot house in Edgemont Village and a new listing in Lower Lonsdale at $6.5 million --definitely exciting times for launching THE PARTNERS REAL ESTATE here in June 2021.
TOP AGENT - INCREDIBLE 10 YEARS
The DREAM of starting his own firm was IGNITED when after 10 solid years of hard work, creativity and a genuine love for the business, Derek had his BEST SALES PERFORMANCE YEAR selling more than $191 MILLION in 2020. After this accomplishment, Derek felt it was the perfect time to now launch in June 2021 what he had always been envisioning and delivering for his 10 years in the real estate business. His vision of Real Estate Marketing began when he entered the Real Estate business in 2011 and the DREAM has now become a reality with his new firm, THE PARTNERS REAL ESTATE. Derek's philosophy of 'Corporate Boardrooms to Living Rooms' has been his platform in the business from the beginning and Derek is excited to continue making an impact in the Real Estate Market, with the DREAM of establishing himself and THE PARTNERS as one of, if not 'the' top performing Real Estate Firm on the entire West Coast delivering an INNOVATIVE COLLABORATIVE APPROACH. He is also very grateful to all his colleagues at Angell Hasman & Associates for the 10 years he was there and continuously looks forward to working with them in the marketplace.
BOUTIQUE. CREATIVITY. INNOVATION. SUCCESS
A creative thinking BOUTIQUE FIRM, collaborating together with an emphasis on delivering results day in and day out, 6am often until the late hours. Derek and his Partners have been delivering results with collaboration with overwhelming success. The growth of many more agents is not the idea. BOUTIQUE, versatile, LOCAL WITH MARKETING INNOVATION, INTERNATIONAL REACH, CREATIVELY DRIVEN with UNBELIEVABLE RESOURCES to achieve successful results for every client. Clients that own a $583,000 condo or clients that own a $23 million dollar WATERFRONT. The approach and effort is exactly the same! His record leading sales approach last year was truly recognized in the industry with his almost $30 million sale above Mulgrave School in West Vancouver seen in the photo here. For YEARS this property was trying to be sold and it was Derek and his team that lead this 21 lot land development to the finish line in one of the toughest markets at the time in early March 2020.
