    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $250K in Chelsea, AL.
    Derek Young was a pleasure to work with through our home buying and selling process. He was very knowledgeable, very attentive, organized, friendly, hardworking and always answered our calls. He was always open with his schedule to fit our needs. We feel very lucky to have had him through it all. He not only gave us helpful advice to make sure our home was ready for a quick sale, but he also always gave us the pros and cons for each home we saw. Some things were big deals that we never would have even noticed without him. He looked out for us as if the home was one he was buying himself! Derek comes with our highest recommendation possible! We are TRULY grateful for his hardwork in helping us find our perfect home!!!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $225K in Birmingham, AL.
    Derek is the type of Realtor that knows how to be personable, like you went to college together, while being the kind of professional you would trust to do exactly what you need him to. I have previously held a real estate license and have run into some real scum in the business, but working with Derek has been a refreshing experience; He knew when to acquiesce, but also knew when something I suggested may not have been in my best interest and informed me of that in a very professional manner. He was always available when I needed him and communicated effectively, even after closing and move-in. I would, highly, recommend Derek and his team.

    I highly recommend Derek Young to help you find your dream home. I was very pleased with his professionalism, his knowledge of the area, and his overall willingness to go above and beyond in trying to find our next home. I know that if we are ever in the market again for buying or selling a home, I will not hesitate to call Derek. Thanks Derek for all of your help.

    Bought a home in 2015 in Eagle Ridge, Pinson, AL 35126.
    Derek did a very good job finding a home that suited our budget and the area we wanted to live in. We had a lot of problems with the realtor who was the listing agent, (Derek was not) as well as the bank, but Derek negotiated all of the issues for us. Derek is not only a real estate agent, but an advocate for his clients when things do not work the way they should when buying a home. Derek always answered his phone and was extremely responsive to all of my questions and calls.

    If you are going to use a real estate agent, use Derek. The other agents we spoke to acted like they were doing us a favor by showing us homes, Derek did not act this way and was professional. Derek went out of his way multiple times to work around our schedules. Truly an awesome real estate agent.

    I never felt alone through this whole experience. He was there with me the entire way. Even when the going got rough he never gave up. I am completely happy with my new home thanks to Derick. I would definitely use him again and would recommend him highly to others.

    Derek was so helpful! This was our first time buying a home and he made it very pleasant and gave his honest opinion without being pushy about it. He went above and beyond any expectations I had and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a house.

    I am in the market to purchase another home. Derek has been informative about the Hoover, Alabama area (Ross Bridge) and schools that I am in interested in seeing for my next home. He explained and demonstrated his professional knowledge of the Birmingham real estate market to me. He has communicated and updated me with new information about new listings that is coming on the market in the Hoover area (Ross Bridge). I would recommend Derek for all real estate needs.
