While in his twenties, Derek travelled the world and developed his business acumen in his position with an international textile manufacturing company. After six years, Derek wanted more time on terra firma and he turned his attention to the family business ---- He worked hands-on in construction projects and then became involved in property ownership, renovation, and management .
Derek decided to become a real estate broker when a key agent retired. From that point on, Derek quickly realized that being a real estate broker was something that suited his character and temperament perfectly. He had found his niche and the work that he loved.
In his first years, he earned Gold Club awards from Remax Quebec for increasing his sales each and every year. He is a Remax Platinum broker for 2016 & 2017.
With a great mind for business, Derek , with his business partner, Frandy Cherestal , opened the very first Remax boutique agency in downtown Montreal. They have since expanded to include a team of successful brokers.
