Derek Recognized in REALTOR Magazine’s 30 Under 30

I am thrilled to get back into writing on a regular basis…and even more excited to jumpstart my writing with a GIGANTIC thank you to everyone who played a role in a honor I recently received. I was selected to be featured among thirty young real estate professionals in REALTOR Magazine, the official publication of the National Association of REALTORS. For the last fifteen years, REALTOR Magazine’s 30 Under 30 feature has annually highlighted young professionals from all over the nation who have demonstrated success in their careers. This diverse group of over 400 REALTORS have varied backgrounds

After receiving hundreds of applications every year, REALTOR Magazine announces a list of fifty finalists and opens the competition up for a public vote, with the top vote recipient receiving an automatic entry into the 30 Under 30. Over the course of a week and with a limitation of voting once per day, nearly 34,000 votes were cast this year for the “Web Choice Award”. I was proud and humbled to have so many colleagues, friends, and family come out and support me through voting and sharing. In the end, the process was as rewarding as the honor itself.

Since being selected as one of REALTOR Magazine’s 30 Under 30, the outpour of support has continued. I had the opportunity to meet several of my “classmates” and past honorees during the REALTORS Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo in Washington DC earlier this week. After having a chance to meet other honorees and reading the profiles of others, I am ecstatic to be chosen among such a dynamic group of creative and skilled professionals. Thank you again to everyone who voted, took the time to read the article, and supported the growth I have had over the course of my career.
