Derek Peterson

REALTOR®

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.

I had initially met Derek when he had helped us find a rental property two years ago. He was great to work with during that process and I knew that he was the one to call when it was time to buy our first house. You can tell he really understands his clients and their needs. I never felt that my time was wasted or like I was being pressured one way or another. He is so personable and the utmost professional without being pretentious. Buying your first home can be stressful and challenging and during the process for us he took on the roles of sage, mentor, cheerleader, therapist (ha!), and coach. He was great about sharing expertise, insight or observations about properties that we had missed and helped to point out different things to consider. He went above and beyond throughout the process and was always attentive and available for us. I felt 100% confident in the way he represented us and had our best interests in mind. But what was really great about working with Derek was that along with having integrity and being amazing at what he does he is just plain fun to work with! Early in the process at a moment when I was feeling a bit discouraged I remember him saying that the right property would fall into place for us and as I sit in our own new home (that I absolutely love!), I can absolutely say he was right and we couldn't have done it without him! Thank you, Derek!

This is the second time we've worked with Derek (he helped us find a house rental in 2015), and we can't say enough good things about him! He exemplified professionalism, was exceedingly patient with us during our first time as home buyers and was just plain nice and great to work with.

Derek is amazing! He is very detail oriented and his clients always come first. Derek found my wife and I our first home before our first child arrives and the whole experience couldn't have been more perfect. He will always be our realtor!

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 successful.career, 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 is one of the most hard-working, genuine people I know. He is extremely responsive and always has your best interests in mind. He is very resourceful and very prompt in finding out anything he did not know the answer to. In addition, he was always looking for ways to make my listing more attractive. Thanks, Derek!!

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.

Derek provided me with several local options within the particular criteria that I requested. He listened and provided immediate information and was super friendly. I would not hesitate to work with Derek again in the future.
