Derek was the best. We were relocating from Colorado. He gave us great insights into the neighborhoods that we were looking at and the appropriate valuations for those neighborhoods. He was exceptional at helping us negotiate the purchase and handling all of the closing details while we were still in Colorado. We highly recommend Derek.

Working with Derek made the process of selling our house a breeze! We had tried for two months to sell our home by owner. During that time we had eight showings and realtors who tried to push us around a bit. We have known Derek for quite some time, and we knew we wanted to take advantage of his expertise if/when we decided to use a realtor.
After we decided to officially list on the MLS, Derek had us listed within a day of giving him notice! We were immediately impressed with his professional agility. Derek's strategies got us 12 showings within the first three days of listing, produced three offers over asking price within three days of listing, and we were under contract within five days. He used his wisdom from years of experience to help us negotiate the things that were important to us, on top of setting a record for the sell price for our type of home in our community. His guidance during the rest of the process made everything so smooth! We highly recommend Derek Seal.

Derek is an authority in the industry; he knows real estate inside and out. His experience, education, and smarts are all part of his expert-level abilities. He just knows how to do it. He guided me through every step as I checked out my renters, prepared the property to list, and sold the house. Every step of the selling process was efficient and smooth. He is professional, responsive to my texts and calls, and his fees are reasonable.

Director of Product Management - Adobe Analytics
Derek Seal is simply outstanding! My wife and I met Derek nearly 13 years ago and he has helped us sell two homes and purchase two rentals properties; his property management company has also provide us with exceptional property management for these properties over the past 8 years.
Despite the 2018 Great Recession and the more recent 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, Derek has been a rich source of data and insight in a market and economy faced with so much uncertainty - helping us better account for both macroeconomic factors as well as local real estate trends - that have been crucial elements of our savvy home and investment property decisions. Unlike other real estate agents, Derek really cares about the long term happiness and financial success of his clients. Derek Seal continues to be an incredible partner for us in our home buying/selling and investment rental property decisions.

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.

Home buyer
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!

Derek and team were a great help selling my property during a very difficult time personally.
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.

Sr IT Engineer
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.

Professor
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.
