Hello! I'd like to start off by saying Thank you. You've taken the time to look into who I am, and what I can do to help you.
My name is Derek Weatherhead, and as you know I am a Realtor in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. Born and raised not far from here, in Kamloops, I decided to develop roots and call Kelowna home. In May of 2010, I started with Royal LePage Kelowna on a journey to become one of the top agents in the Okanagan Valley. When I'm not helping people with their real estate needs or studying and researching real estate for my own interest, you can find me on the golf course, at one of our amazing beaches, or enjoying Big White!
All through high school I worked as a carpenter in my uncle's manufacuting shop. After graduating high school, I completed a carpentry apprenticeship and achieved a journeyman status in carpentry. My first work experience was in finishing carpentry, installing baseboard, casing, and doors, in Penticton BC. Then on to framing and building foundations on homes in Sun Peaks, Calgary, and Vernon. Finally I finished my apprenticeship with Sawchuk Developments, a commercial construction contractor here in Kelowna BC. It was building homes and large commercial buildings that made me fall in love with real estate. One residential contractor I was working for was absent quite often. Leaving me to work and communicate with both the trades and clients. I was organizing construction sites, and helping trades get what they required. Communicating with the clients and trades to help their dreams come true was my favorite part. I found my place, working with people and their homes. As the education continued I began to understand the different areas of real estate and development. It intrigued me to learn more and push to understand more of the sales and financial aspects of real estate.
Since 2010 I've worked hard to study and be a student as we as a teacher on all areas of real estate. Focusing on both find the best possible practices to help clients purchase real estate, and find the most creative and effective listing and marketing programs to sell properties faster and for more money. I have closed transactions in all price ranges and all property types. From small homes with first time home buyers, all the way up to luxury homes on our beautiful Okanagan lakefront.
My goal is to provide the best possible real estate experience, guidance and education. Helping you to make the best possible decisions when dealing with your real estate. Building my network of clients, friends and business associates focused on Real Estate. As well as partnering and investing in real estate here in the Okanagan.
Thank you for taking the few minutes to read my profile. I look forward to connecting with you! Feel free to reach out anytime.
