About Derek J Kats

Derek J Kats is an active Realtor and current co-owner of Lincoln’s Keller Williams Lincoln Franchise.

Derek started his Realtor career in early 2010 and by 2011 had already become the #1 Buyer's Agent Realtor in Lincoln. Throughout the years, Derek has ranked in the Top-10 Realtors overall for sales in Lincoln, while recently achieving the honor of being named as Lincoln’s #1 Residential Realtor in 2016 for Sales Transactions Closed.

In 2014, Derek decided to detour from the corporate backed brokerages where he got his start, and put his own brokerage building skills to work by founding Real Estate Avenues: The Brokerage, LLC. He formed The Brokerage in attempts to break away from the traditional corporate-structured paper-based brokerages while offering a more professional, tech-savvy experience than a typical upstart brokerage could provide. In just a few short years, REA: The Brokerage had become the fastest growing brokerage in Lincoln with over 200% sales growth in 2016. With nearly overnight success REA drew the attention of numerous large brokerages both local and national, but only one shared the same culture, systems, and technology… Keller Williams Realty.

In early 2017, REA: The Brokerage merged with Keller Williams Lincoln to form the 4th largest Brokerage in Lincoln. Since the merger, Derek has taken a training and coaching role with KW, but is still active in sales working with both Buyers and Sellers.

Reviews of Derek J Kats

Normal default

"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! "

Testimonials added by Derek J Kats

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 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

ctrofholz

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
