About Me

There is nothing more enjoyable than being able to go home after a hard day of work. The dream of homeownership is something that we, as Americans, strive for every day. Owning a home further exemplifies the saying, "Hard work pays off." It's a place where memories are made and will last a lifetime. I take pride in working day in and day out to make your dreams of owning a home become your reality. 

As a United States Marine Corps veteran, I take pride in the discipline, structure, and core values that I have learned from my time in service. A lot of what I learned has translated into my everyday life and has helped me provide the best possible service to everyone I work with. 

I look forward to working for you and with you towards your dream of homeownership! "The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned." -Maya Angelou

Derek was exceptionally helpful with my home purchase. I came into the process knowing absolutely nothing and Derek was able to clarify any questions I had. As I transitioned from the military, there was a lot of assistance I needed in both time and money. Derek was able to help me boost my credit, close on my home, and put no money down all within the span of a few months. There’s no scenario where I think this could have happened without Derek. If anyone is interested in purchasing a home in PA, MD, or VA, I highly recommend speaking with Derek about your situation/needs; especially if you’re current or prior military!

Derek was awesome and I highly recommend him as your mortgage advisor!! He was so knowledgeable about the information, very responsive, and hard working. Derek was very willing to go through information for each house that I looked at until I found my dream home. You can tell he cares about each of his clients and it was a pleasure working with him!

Derek was super helpful- we were first time buyers and knew NOTHING- he walked us through every step of the process, and was super patient as we navigated new jobs, applying for the MD mortgage program, and helped us pick a plan that made the most sense for us. He answered all of our questions super quickly, even the late night texts!

Derek was wonderful to work with! His team was fast and when my offer was accepted I was able to close on my house in 16 days! Very good at answer questions and knowledgeable about the industry. It was my first time buying a home and I still am able to ask him questions about my mortgage!
