Savvy negotiations and innovative marketing strategies join uncompromising integrity as the emblem of Derek’s service. Derek is well respected within the industry, not only for his high ethical standards but for conducting his business honestly and morally while doing absolutely everything in his power to ensure his clients’ success.

A Los Angeles native and long-time San Diegan, Derek thoroughly understands what California living is all about. Having graduated from Sonoma State University while playing on the World Series baseball team, Derek implemented the humility and selflessness learned from years of athletics into his real estate practice.

In depth local market knowledge and innovative marketing techniques aside, Derek also possesses an advanced set of negotiating skills demonstrated by a designation associated with less than 1% of Realtors nationwide — Master Certified Negotiation Expert®.





For most, the purchasing of a home will be the largest investment made in their lifetime. Derek, being an active real estate investor himself, can view the market from an analytical perspective to ultimately solidify his clients’ bottom line.

From selling multi-million dollar estates to helping a first-time home buyer find a place to call home, Derek translates his white glove service to all his clients. He truly encompasses what it means to be a Realtor and help people find their place in the world.

When he’s not practicing real estate you’ll most likely find Derek enjoying one of the fine outdoor activities this special city has to offer its residents: hiking, golfing, biking, beach volleyball, wine tasting, attending a local sporting event, running, or fishing.

Enjoy the feeling of professionalism, quality and success with Derek Harms.
