Derek Peterson


Derek moved to Austin in 2012 after a 10-year career in the music business. Having worked for Capitol Records, Live Nation, and Ticketmaster, he was prepped and ready for a new adventure. With a background in negotiating record deals, publishing deals, and touring contracts while also having a passion for serving people, Real Estate proved itself to be the right balance of business and customer service for him. Derek is extremely patient and loyal, he operates with the highest level of honesty and integrity at all times. He has a history of fighting for his clients while keeping deals together through closing. He strikes the perfect balance of friendly and fierce. 

Derek has two beautiful daughters and loves spending as much time as possible with them. When he’s not working or with his kids he’s doing something active like running the lake, playing volleyball at Zilker, weightlifting or shooting hoops. Derek spends a lot of time getting to know the city and the communities around it. He serves in his church and is part of multiple groups that engage the community every week.

Being tech savvy and having a heart for people, Derek is constantly finding ways to efficiently raise the bar for customer service. No task is too tall for him and he is focused on providing the best experience possible for his clients.

Derek was great. He really looked after my interests, handled lots of site visits (inspection, follow-up inspection, meetings with service workers) that I could not attend. I was completely confident in Derek’s abilities to represent me and to deal directly with the inspector. Derek has a very bright future in real estate, and if I have future real estate needs, I will call him back.

Short version, Derek did, in my opinion, a wonderful job and I would be more than happy to and will recommend him to my friends. I am 65 years old and was an old fart first-time buyer. I was fortunate enough to meet Derek when we just called out of the blue upon seeing the home I eventually purchased on the website. Derek responded to my late afternoon request to view the house literally within 30 minutes and arranged for our initial viewing the next day. He also arranged for a second viewing the following day while juggling family obligations involving a birthday party for his son. And this was Thanksgiving weekend. Throughout the entire process he has been very understanding and patient with a first-time buyer and has clearly been on top of things from the first. I appreciate his earnest straightforward approach and sincere desire to serve his client's interests. I strongly suspect that he will have a long and very, and I can sincerely recommend him to friends and family alike. He's a good guy who knows his business, and his honest, sincere and straightforward approach will serve him very well in the future.

Derek Peterson was a dream to work with! Being new to Austin, I was really nervous about the process and immediately knew I was in good hands. He was extremely responsive, willing to go the extra mile, was attentive to our needs in finding a rental, fun to work with, knew exactly what to do in each situation and negotiated everything perfectly. We ended up with our ideal home, location, and price! When it comes time to buy - I will definitely call on him.

Derek was great. He showed me a ton of houses (Austin: Circle C, Shady Hollow, and Lakeway, as well as, Dripping Springs, Driftwood, and Buda). He knows his stuff and we very cool to work with. I eventually chose to rent one of the houses he showed me. We will definitely call him when we're ready to buy.
