"Derek is extremely knowledgeable, personable and reliable. He is so easy to work with and was there to answer at least 1,000 questions. His understanding of the luxury market is unsurpassed. I would give Derek my highest recommendation and feel at ease referring him anyone looking to buy or sell in the Denver metro area. A true professional!"
"Derek is a calming force in an otherwise challenging market, consistently communicating with his clients to keep them apprised from start to finish. As a lender, it is so refreshing to see how dedicated Derek is to his clients, how patient he is throughout the process, and how remarkable he is in his communications to all parties involved in the process. Derek is a TRUE professional."
"Derek Thomas is an outstanding realtor. Both his communication and follow up on every phase of our home sale and subsequent home purchase were outstanding. His willingness to go out of his way was above and beyond what we would normally expect from any realtor. This is our eighth home sale and with past home sales/purchases we have never ever had even close to the outstanding service we received from Derek."
Derek attended Metro State University for his bachelor's degree in business management and also attended the Graduate Realtor Institute. He served on South Metro Denver Real Estate Association (SMDRA board for six years.
Professional, knowledgeable, and personable, Derek has served South-East Denver (Parker, Franktown, Castle Rock, and Lonetree) for almost two decades now. Derek became a licensed realtor in 2004, starting in new home sales and marketing for two local custom home builders before transitioning into resale residential real estate.
From 2006 to 2008, Derek worked as a commercial broker specializing in land and multifamily, but he soon missed the personal element of residential sales. He became one of Denver's top 1% of realtors by the age of 30 and has remained consistently in the top-producing bracket ever since.
Since then, Derek has defined his approach by his aggressive negotiation tactics and white-glove concierge service. He primarily works with single-family luxury and ranch property buyers and sellers. Most of his business comes from his former client's glowing recommendations and referrals.
Derek understands that real estate transactions are usually significant and life-altering, so he takes his responsibility to be a trusted representative seriously and considers it a privilege to work closely with his clients to ensure a seamless and financially advantageous transaction.
Growing up playing competitive ice hockey, Derek found his passion for endurance mountain and road biking as an adolescent. He enjoys off-road expeditions with his family, including camping and fly-fishing.
Derek is married to his high school sweetheart, Diamond. They have two daughters between them, Dior and Dakari. Their daughters ride horses competitively and are active in the Douglas County 4H program.
