As a seasoned military specialist hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana, I dedicated 25 years of my career to the US Army, experiencing diverse cultures and locations across the United States and beyond. After retiring from active duty, my family and I chose to call Northwest Florida our permanent home.
During my military service, I provided critical guidance to service members and their families on topics such as career advancement, goal-setting, and relocation. This experience naturally transitioned into a technical recruiting role in Ft. Walton Beach, where I supported a military contract. While I enjoyed the fast-paced nature and relationship-building aspects of recruiting, I found myself increasingly drawn to employee relations and human resources, leveraging the skills I honed during my military career.
My passion for helping employees relocate smoothly by assisting with home and apartment searches, providing area-specific information, and facilitating contacts sparked my interest in real estate.

We just wanted to thank you again, Derik. I’m so glad I picked you. Even though it was stressful at times, you really helped to make things easygoing. Do you drink at all? Whiskey or bourbon?
