I have been a licensed broker since 1993 and since that have completed 1800+ transactions. I work with both buyers and sellers as well as investors and builders. I believe the most important job a real estate broker can do is to listen first and then guide the client accordingly. Teamwork makes the dream work and I have an amazing support staff to deliver incredible client care at each step of the transaction. The buying or selling of a home is one of the most important decisions that we make and we treat the process with the importance it deserves. I look forward to helping you open the next door in your life. At your service - Derek

    • Derek listed and sold my home

        It’s Mr. Oie’s practice to not order signs until the weekday the house goes on the market. It took three workdays to get the sign so it wasn’t installed until two full days after we went live! He knew a week prior the date our house was going on the market. He also didn’t install a lockbox until after someone wanted to come see our house. His assistant called and I told her I wouldn’t be home since that is the preferred way to show a house. She wanted to know how they were to get in. Isn’t that realtor 101? Why was she asking me? Our listing didn’t go online until 4:30PM the day we went on the market after I called to find out where it was. I had emailed Mr. Oie a diagram of the layout of our house that I wanted to go online four days prior and it wasn’t on our listing until I asked his assistant about it. His office posted a listing on their facebook page for another house in my city but didn’t post mine until I asked. We had a barn that was not permitted and not to code. When I first interviewed him he said he would anonymously call city hall and ask questions about what would happen if it were reported, was it grandfathered in, and more so he would have all the answers to any questions a prospective buyer would have. He didn’t make an anonymous call. He sent an email to city hall with his letterhead saying he represented a client who wanted to buy said property. He sent the email after our house went on the market and AFTER I asked if he had done it yet. He had told city hall he wasn’t sure if it was permitted when I told him it wasn’t. City hall wouldn’t respond unless he gave them my address. Once he brought up the barn there would be no way to go back and do it anonymously as the person there would connect the dots and know something was fishy! All they had to do was find his listings in our city and narrow it down! He brought me to tears for the second time since I hired him. He always had a lame excuse for his actions and lied about trying to call me on more than one occasion. His emails were often cryptic and hard to understand. One email contained something that was never explained to me. It was something about Redfin wanted an offer deadline to send to 91 homebuyers who were tracking my listing. It was dated 40 hours after our listing was posted. There weren’t even 91 hits on the listing and we still didn’t have a sign! We were receiving emails to sign documents. Not once did he call us or give us heads up about what we were signing. The agent for the house we were buying always sent me an email telling me what to expect and to call her when I received the signature requests so she could go through the documents with me so I could understand what I was signing. I was on my own with Oie unless I called or emailed with questions. Three weeks before escrow was to close I called Terminex to do an inspection. Mr. Oie’s office had told me in an email that it was the buyer’s responsibility to get the inspection but I read the contract and knew it was our responsibility. There was $22,000 of work that needed to be done a week before escrow closed! Mr. Oie’s office wasn’t even planning to get an inspection until a week later! As it was, we barely got all the work done. Escrow would have been delayed even more had I left it up to his office! We never got a “sold” sign. I finally took down the “for sale” sign because people were stopping to look at our house. During the appraisal the inspector said we had to put up smoke alarms and a few other things and he would have to return to take photos to finish the appraisal. I let Mr. Oie’s office know. I was told by the buyer’s agent that the appraisal had come through. Keep reading to see that Mr. Oie’s office fell down on that task as well. A week before escrow was to close I sent an email asking if everything was going smoothly and if we were closing on time. I had been getting updates regularly from my realtor for the house we were buying, but hadn’t gotten anything from him unless I asked. He never answered that email. Escrow was supposed to close the following Monday. On Saturday, two days before closing, I emailed Mr. Oie asking if we were closing on time. It was then he finally let me know there would be a delay and it would probably not close until Tuesday! We had four trucks scheduled to leave our house with our belongings on Monday! We couldn’t do a darn thing about it over the weekend and it would have cost us a fortune to delay them anyway! We sent the trucks on their way and hung around until Tuesday. Tuesday afternoon, fifteen minutes before we were leaving, the appraisal inspector popped in to get the photos of the smoke alarms and such so escrow could close!! Had we not been there a longer delay would have taken place! Why didn’t Mr. Oie keep track of what was left to be done??? It got worse than that! We arrived at our house in Arizona, which couldn’t close escrow until our other house closed escrow, on Tuesday night. Escrow still hadn’t closed. We had a rental truck that had to be unloaded and returned and we couldn’t sleep in our RV because it was packed with boxes that had to be unloaded. We couldn’t stay in a motel because we had three cats, two dogs, two rabbits, and an iguana. We unloaded everything into the yard and slept in the RV. It turns out the buyer’s lender needed clarification on an IRS form. Why didn’t Oie know that?? Escrow closed and funded on Wednesday BUT it took a full work day to fund our house we were buying. Thursday was a HOLIDAY! We couldn’t get into our new home until Friday! I totally blame Mr. Oie for not keeping an eye on what needed to be done, not answering my questions promptly, not answering other questions at all, causing me to have to send multiple 2nd Request emails, and for causing us grief between the day escrow was supposed to close and the day it actually closed. We had moved to Arizona in the middle of summer and our RV air conditioner could not keep up with the heat. We and the animals were all dying in the heat. I was rubbing them down with ice water to keep everyone alive! Mr. Oie sent me one last email saying he was going to contact the buyer’s lender, the one that messed up, and insist they pay our additional expenses. I don’t believe he ever did that because he never answered any of my questions asking if they would. As a matter of fact, he never even let me know our escrow had closed. My other realtor let me know. I got 95% of my information from her and not from Mr. Oie.
