Derick is originally from Monona, a small town in northeast Iowa just 20 minutes away from the Mississippi River. Nine years ago, he moved to the Iowa City area to fulfill his dream of graduating from the University of Iowa as a Hawkeye. His wife, Katie, is an Iowa City native and nurse at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Together they have built a wonderful life with their children, Nyle and Peyton, and are proud to call the Iowa City area their home.
Before transitioning to real estate, Derick enjoyed working in the Gazette’s Sports Department, compiling statistics for area teams. His love for competition and numbers, coupled with a desire to help others, led Derick to change careers and become a real estate specialist. Whether you are a first-time home buyer or searching for a forever dream home, or even it’s your 1st, 5th or 50th home purchase, let Derick’s passion help you have a “winning” real estate experience.
