Derek helped us successfully navigate the San Francisco real estate market 15 years ago as we made our first home purchase. He patiently and expertly answered all our questions, gave us steady advice on if and how much we might want to pay, and connected us to a strong network of inspectors, architects, engineers, and even painters, plumbers, electricians, and more! Over the years, Derek and then Natalie also provided invaluable guidance during our several house fixes and remodels so that if/when we sold (which we did through them) we’d be able to maximize our renovation investments. Derek and Natalie, thank you so much for educating and guiding us, your precision professionalism, and most of all, your friendship over all these years!!
