Top Performing Local Realtor


Born and raised in Gilroy, Derek Essary became involved in the South Bay community at a young age through family members in real estate. Now a third-generation agent himself, Derek attributes his family’s enduring passion and success to one core belief, passed down through generations: Working with a client is a long-term commitment.

Derek isn’t here to make a quick buck and run — he offers his clients the highest level of service and invests in their real estate success for years to come. This outlook has helped him become one of the top-producing real estate agents in South County.

Unique marketing, advanced negotiation, and unparalleled customer service: That’s #TheDerekDifference.

Contact Derek


Derek Essary gave me helpful, professional advice and suggestions that had my family’s home sold days after it was put onto the market. I’ve sold two other homes in the past using other realtors and never had the attention to details, guidance to find quality repair services, nor constant updates on the progress of repairs, paperwork needing my attention and his hands-on work inside my home. I can’t say enough about how he made a stressful situation move smoothly and quickly. Derek is a wonderful realtor and I’d like to think of him as my friend now, too.
