Having worked in The Victoria Police force and since moving into the real estate industry, Derek’s commitment to serving the community has never faltered and remains his number one passion.
Derek has lived locally for the past 8 years, during this time he has developed exceptional knowledge of the market and is excited by the great potential of Knox and its surrounds. Being fluent in Mandarin enables him to overcome the language barrier often found, particularly with the influx of international buyers eager to enter Melbourne’s eastern suburbs.
During what is typically a stressful period for buyers and sellers alike, Derek is able to build an atmosphere of trust and calmness through his affable nature, integrity and transparent communication. A meticulous detail-orientated approach allows Derek’s clients to obtain a very clear understanding of the entire sales process and his commitment to providing a personal ‘hands-on’ service to clients through every stage of the sales campaign provides Derek with a competitive edge.
Outside the office, Derek enjoys the spending time with his family exploring good restaurants, playing basketball and catching up with friends. A proud father to two and husband to wife Yan, family stands at the heart of Derek’s world and from whichever perspective you look at it, whether it be as a vendor, buyer, family member or colleague, Derek is a pleasure to deal with and works tirelessly for those around him.
