Derek is the consummate professional in the real estate world. We trust him completely, which is a huge compliment coming from my wife :)
Derek’s expertise was especially helpful when we ran into roadblocks and challenges in the process of purchasing our home. He mediated masterfully, and negotiated the best terms possible for us.
I give my highest recommendation for Derek, and have full confidence you will experience the best from him. He knows the real estate market and business, and he understands how to work effectively with people to work out what is most beneficial to you. Most of all, I appreciate his counsel and advice - he is wise and practical.

Clients
Derek was very attentive to what we wanted in a home and found exactly that. He has helped us in many ways. He has always been present through the stages of our home buying experience and has advised us well. He has made this experience for two senior citizens much more enjoyable than we thought it would be. We have appreciated his professionalism and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor. In fact we have recommended him to one friend who is considering making a move to the Wasatch Front.

Derek is the best Realtor in the Salt Lake area! Even though we have a few friends and acquaintances who are realtors and of course, wanted our business, we still decided to use Derek for the second time since he did a great job when we had to sell our house years ago during the recession. This time we were ready to buy the perfect home and Derek was very patient with us. He never rushed us to buy a home in this crazy sellers market and he respected our time and helped us to make the right decision at the right time even though it took us about a year to find the perfect house. He’s very knowledgeable about the market, house location, and he will do everything he can to get you the best deal on a house since he has excellent negotiating skills when dealing with sellers and even with the bank. We definitely recommend Derek to our family and friends, and when the time comes we will definitely use Derek again as our Realtor when we have to sell and/or buy a house in the future. We want to thank Derek for everything he did for us and for all the hard work he put in to getting us our dream home this year.

Seller
Derek was a fantastic advocate for our LLC when it came time to sell our property. Our property was a bit dated and needed a little tlc to get it ready to sell. Derek guided us on the best price to list the property for after researching similar properties in the area. He clearly has a grasp and feel for what the market will bring.
Derek was also attuned to what we wanted in a buyer,considering how special this property was to our family.
I would highly recommend Derek and his team @ Next Home for any of your real estate transactions.

Sincerely,
William Burns

We have used Derek for several properties. He works very hard to make sure that we get the most out of a sell possible. He also found the home that we currently live in. We were able to get it at below market value because of Derek's negotiating skills. We have recommended him to several friends and family and he has done a phenomenal job for them as well. My husband and I highly recommend Derek Seal.

Derek was incredible. He negotiated well on our behalf and also sold our house so fast. He really handled everything and made this so painless. I would recommend him as truly a phenomenal realtor.

In addition, before selling our home, he managed it as a rental and that was a dream process. He was identified amazing tenants, handled all needed repairs as they came up.

Derek, thank you for everything!

He/they took care of all the details big and small with getting my house prepared to sell.
He was responsible, accountable, and did a great job. I would definitely use him and his team again and would absolutely recommend his services to anyone who asked.

Derek has done an incredible job as both a property manager and realtor. Initially I had him manage my house in UT as a rental property while I took a job out of state. With very little effort on my part he found tenants at a great rate and only took a very reasonable fee for managing the property. He was very communicative and always confirmed any necessary repairs on the property with me before proceeding. When I decided to sell the house once again Derek made the process practically pain free. We worked to determine a price that was fair and I even thought might have been a little high. He then proceeded to find buyers and sold the house at asking price. I have been thoroughly impressed with Derek's abilities to negotiate, facilitate, and most importantly sell! I would work with him again in a heartbeat.

I enthusiastically recommend Derek Seal to anyone having property management needs or buying or selling a home. Derek is honest and conscientious in his work. He is extremely knowledgeable about homes, the market, and all the little details that I was grateful that he was aware of and that he dealt with for me! Derek managed the rental of my house for a year; then when I was ready, he helped me get my house sold and he is now helping me find just the right place to buy. Selling and buying is a huge stress, so it has been a relief to have him there and to rightfully be able to place such confidence in his service. I admire and am grateful to have such an excellent person working to help me.

Son of the seller
Derek helped us several years ago in the sale of my mother-in-law's home and did such an outstanding job, we jumped to use him again with the sale of my parent's home. Derek's performance was better than ever in his preparation before the initial visit, the communication throughout the process, and helping get past any hurdles that arose. He is tops in understanding the market and how to price for sale. And we knew up front what to expect as the final settlement - in both experiences he was pretty close. I can truly say from start to finish I knew he was working for us.

I almost wish my friends would sell their homes so we could recommend Derek as their agent.

Derek worked with us for over 6 months until we found our home. I was very impressed with him throughout this process. He really had our best interest at heart, helping us avoid pitfalls and mistakes with our purchase. He made himself available to answer questions and was very flexible in arranging showings. I would recommend working with Derek if you need an experienced agent to guide you through the process.

Derek is by far the most competent real estate agent we have ever known and had the pleasure of working with. He really is an expert and knows his trade inside and out. There was never a question he couldn't answer. We are so grateful for his talent and hard work in helping us not only purchase a house, but a home equipped with all of life's necessities and dreams. He is very thoughtful and made sure we had everything, even down to the tiniest of details that never crossed our minds. Purchasing a home can be a stressful process; but with Derek's help, we were able to get everything we wanted and then some. It was such a delight to work with Derek and his easy-going personality. We always felt like we were his priority and never had to worry about a thing because we knew we were in good hands. He was always on top of things and got the job done with finesse. Thank you Derek for all of your hard work in helping us purchase our dream home.

Derek Seal has been fantastic and truly professional throughout my entire home buying transaction.
He is incredibly knowledgeable of the local real estate landscape and gave me the impression of making every decision in my best interest. He went the extra mile on every step of the process, followed through on every action, offered helpful insights and was always available when I had a question.
I would not hesitate to use him as a real estate agent in the future and highly recommend Derek.

Thanks for making the process easy.

We've had very positive experiences with agents during 6 purchase/sell transactions in the past. Derek has been the best partner to work with during this, our 7th. Derek strikes a valuable balance of time and quality service in his efforts, as well as a combination of just getting things done and doing as the customer needs/wants. We, as well as many family and friends, are pleasantly surprised at the speed and accuracy of all details and the entire process! It is a pleasure to recommend Derek to all. Thanks, again, Derek!
