Derek planted roots on the islands in 1995 and lived on Kauai before moving to east Hawaii. He loves meeting people and believes that a real estate sale is not just a transaction, but rather an opportunity to build lasting relationships. Enjoying life, helping others and appreciating nature are top on his list when asked what are your interests. Derek, in the company of his Japanese wife, can be found riding in a vintage VW sedan, surfing, hiking or just out enjoying the natural environment that the island has to offer. Derek was a commercial landscaper for 15 years and offers his plant expertise to new homeowners. Proud to be part of the Salt Water Realty ohana.
