Always quick to respond to emails and texts, and was there for us every step of the way. He has been very knowledgeable and professional and we couldn’t have asked for a better agent to work with.”

5 Star Yelp Review - Derek Essary

“Derek was a huge asset in the sale of our rental home. Derek professionally staged our property, facilitated the 1031 Exchange Program and sold the property in 3 days at substantially over list price. Derek is a true honest, hardworking professional that excels in networking, marketing and negotiations.”

– Lori V.

5 Star Zillow Review - Derek Essary

“We love Derek! He is honest, diligent, hard-working, and knowledgeable… He was highly responsive and communicative throughout the process and always kept us up to date. He drove lots of interest in the house and ultimately got us multiple offers and sold it for well above the listing price!”

– Drew M.



The Derek Difference

Don’t put your property in the hands of an obsolete agent who is just going to list it on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and wait for activity. You need a Realtor who has fresh ideas and can apply modern marketing techniques to bring in top dollar on your property. 


Derek’s years of Silicon Valley internet marketing experience allows him to market your property in creative ways which differentiate it from other homes. When it comes to marketing, the details are important. My marketing includes 3D tours, professional photography, drone footage, custom property websites, and much more.
