More about Derek Scheidt
When asked, "why did you get into REAL ESTATE," my answer always goes back to my purpose in life... I wanted to leave people better off than when I met them. I had been in multiple service industry positions when I was presented with the opportunity to get my real estate license. I was trying to sell my home and had a poor experience with the agent. I kept providing ideas to the agent who listed it on what she could do to market the property to attract more buyers. She suggested, “why don’t you get your license”… so I did.
I will never forget hearing from the real estate course instructor that real estate is about the RELATIONSHIP not the transaction. That hit right to the core of who I am. My business is based upon relationships and focuses on the follow service standards:
Signature Service - every client is treated with white glove treatment.
Provide utmost respect and dignity - I am always respectful and guard our client's privacy with utmost care.
Empathetic and Willing to Lend an Ear - I take the time to listen and hear what our client's need and then work to help bring about a successful resolution.
Strong negotiation skills - I negotiate in such a way as to get to the closing table with as little risk to their financial position as possible.

Areas of Expertise
I love to help write chapters in the stories of people's home buying experience... whether it is working with the first time home buyer who is embarking on their journey, or if it is someone who never thought they would own again after a financial hardship, or if it is a couple who are downsizing, my goal is to help meet them right where they are.
