  • Kats & Associates: helped me buy a home

      Derek was extremely helpful and readily available 24/7 during my entire process as a first time home buyer. He was very friendly and professional and answered all of my questions, big or small. Derek made sure I was always informed and up to date on what was going on with everything, every step of the way. He also put me in contact with other outstanding professionals who were able to help me with other aspects of my home buying experience/process (insurance broker, mortgage lender, etc.). You can tell that he goes above and beyond to make his clients his #1 priority, as he was always readily available and quick to get back with me anytime I contacted him via phone/text/email. I highly recommend Derek to anyone and everyone, he is extremely knowledgeable and a great guy!

    • Derek had a superb knowledge of the local market. He got our house sold for the price we needed, despite multiple similar homes in the neighborhood being on the market simultaneously. He also recommended a local builder that built a quality home at a reasonable price. He's the number one Realtor in Lincoln for a reason, and I highly recommend him.

    • Derek will always be someone I strongly recommend to others who may be buying or selling a home. He was very professional, easy to get a hold of at all times, always responded to my inquiries (no matter how big or small), and he definitely knows his stuff when it comes to buying and selling a home.

    • Derek has perfected the seller experience. He came with a clear plan, executed upon it, and generally made the experience a breeze. Additionally, he prepared us for the experience, provided great guidance on what to expect with minimal disturbance to our daily life. Can I give him a 150% grade because he went way above and beyond

    • Derek was a joy to work with and was very knowledgeable about the sort of things that as a first time home buyer, I might have entirely missed. I appreciated his honesty and responsiveness to our needs. Derek and his assistant were very patient with us during our home-buying process and willing to help out at less-than-ideal times of the day. I gladly endorse Derek
