Quick Biography: Derrik was born in Durango, Colorado, and grew up in a tiny town south of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Choosing the road less taken, Derrik attended Westminster College in Salt Lake City, where he earned degrees in finance and management. While attending college at Westminster, Derrik, unknowingly at the time, met the beautiful woman that eventually would become the love of his life and his wife. Between meeting Holly and the wedding day, there would be adventure and education within the real estate industry that would help shape Derrik into the real estate advisor he is today.
While in college Derrik began working with an Inc. 500 mortgage bank to fully understand the lending and mortgage industry. Although he was based out of Salt Lake City Derrik helped homeowners and investors purchase and refinance properties from Alaska to South Carolina. In late 2006, Derrik purchased his first investment property before informing his family that he would accept a position with Altura Investments to maintain and manage the day-to-day operations of an 85-unit development on the Island of Roatan in Honduras.
Approximately twelve months later, he returned to the mountains of Utah and started a lending company that provided short-term bridge loans for homebuilders or business ventures. Meanwhile, Derrik kept a pulse on the real estate markets and started purchasing and rehabbing additional investments for long-term rental. Somewhere between purchasing his ninth investment property and marrying Holly, he decided it was time to change directions and use his knowledge and skill to help others buy and sell property in Park City, the Deer Valley® Resort area, Midway, and Heber, Utah.
In February 2012, Derrik joined Keller Williams Park City; he has continued to grow his knowledge of the Real Estate industry to serve his clients best to become the 35th ranked agent for Keller Williams' 180,000+ agents.
He holds the designation of Certified Negotiation Expert, is a member in good standing with the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, and is a Premier Zillow Agent. Derrik is committed to providing exceptional service to help clients reach their Real Estate goals.

|Our experience working with Derrik was second to none. Derrik does the right thing for his clients, even when it is not in his best interest. He was professional, knowledgeable, helpful, caring, and truly had our best interest in mind though out the entire process. We highly recommend Derrik to anyone looking for an exceptional real estate agent.|
|Best realtor in Park City. Did a great job negotiating for us!|
|J. Conway - Deer Valley|
|It started when I did a google search for Park City Utah properties, saw a house I liked and it was an ad listed by Derrik. He contacted me by email, I told him what I was looking for and that I'd be in Park City 6 months from then to look at properties. During that six months he sent me a number of houses that fit my criteria and when we arrived we met him, liked him immediately and started looking at houses. It took us three more trips to find the perfect house, but find the perfect house we did! Derrik is friendly, patent, funny and knows Park City real estate. It was a fun, easy, delightful experience. Derrik is the best!|
|M. Matthews - Park City|
|Living in New Jersey and trying to purchase property in Park City presents logistical challenges. Once the property is found, the real “fun” begins—mortgage, inspections, engineers, and of course deadlines. Our purchase would not (could not) have happened without Derrik. We bought a house and made a friend.|
|We had high expectations for Derrik Carlson as he came highly recommended. However, we never expected to list our home and close in ten days! When we told Derrik we called him because we heard he was the best realtor around. He humbly remarked, “Well sometimes you get lucky.” Derrik is very professional and personal. He came over within the hour of the first day we called him. He took excellent pictures of the home. During the selling and closing experience, he stayed on top of all the transactions and paperwork keeping us informed daily. We had a positive experience with Derrik Carlson as a Real Estate broker.|
|Susan Warden - 2018 Update: 2 Transactions with Derrik|
|Derrik has helped us sell and buy a home. He is dependable, trustworthy, professional and knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend him for any real estate needs and will not hesitate to hire him again in the future.|
|Taylor Carter - 2018 Update: 2 Transactions with Derrik|
|Derrik has been amazing to work with now after having him help us purchase and sell our home. He is a great listener, quick to respond to messages, and is up to date with technology making paperwork easy to sign electronically. Derrik is knowledgeable and we are confident that he is getting us the best price on either side of the buying/selling experience. Derrik is so easy to work with that I will miss interacting with him until our next house hunt.|
|Luxury Buyer (name not disclosed) $4,000,000+|
|Derrik was knowledgeable about the market and full service throughout the whole process.|
|Luke - 2018 Update: 4 Transactions with Derrik|
|We recently used Derrik Carlson to sell our home that we have lived in for the last couple years. Derrik helped us purchase this home in 2013 and we were thrilled with it these last two years. After careful consideration and scouring the market, Derrik helped us make the right choice to build. We could not have been happier with his commitment along the way to keep us informed and happy with our transaction. Two years later we just recently sold this home and again Derrik came through for us. He was able to help us prepare the house to best be listed, and he did not leave out even the slightest detail. This translated into us getting top dollar for the sale of the home. When our first buyer fell through, Derrik immediately had a backup in the works and we were back under contract the next day. Two of the best qualities we found that differentiated Derrik from the others were his attention to detail and his response time. We never felt left in the dark, and we always knew Derrik would respond to our calls and e-mails on time. The closing (and purchase) on this home was painless and we will continue to use Derrik's services for each home decision we make!|
|Ashley Mullaney - 2018 Update: 2 Time Client|
|I’ve worked with Derrik as both a seller and a buyer and would strongly recommend him. As a seller living in a different country we relied heavily on Derrik to manage the entire sales process. He is vigilant with communication and his level of personal service, professionalism and knowledge of the market is unparalleled. As a buyer I felt Derrik truly cared about our home purchase. We were in the market for a unique home and limited with time so I appreciated his availability with our busy schedule and willingness to show us houses in very different styles and locations. We found our dream home and Derrik was there every step along the way during closing and happily answered all my questions along the way. Derrik knows Utah real estate, the home buying process and I’d wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone thinking about buying or selling.|
|Amy Francis - 2018 Update: 3 Time Client|
|My husband and I began working with Derrik last summer immediately after getting an outstanding referral from some friends who went through him as well. Being new to the area, we greatly appreciated his knowledge with each surrounding town helping us pin point where we would like to settle down and fit in best. Derrik is a compassionate relator who does an exceptional job at appropriately following up in phone calls and emails, while also giving us time to discuss each home and make a decision on our own terms. He respected our budget throughout the entire process and was very honest about a potential home being a smart investment or not (which was much appreciated being first time home owners!). Without hesitation, I highly recommend Derrik Carlson as a realtor and am confident anyone would feel at ease with him just as we did after our first meeting together.|
|I am in the lending profession, so I meet and work with Real Estate Professionals every day. Many make promises that do not come into fruition, often times due to them saying whatever they can to earn business. I decided to give Derrik my business because he was upfront and extremely honest. He was able to negotiate a great price for our property, and we are extremely grateful. The transaction and the process was very smooth and we are confident that out of all the agents I know, I picked the best one. I would recommend him for anything, and as a lender I am going to always forward him my clients. I know 110% he will take care of them.|
|It was truly a pleasure to do business with Derrik. We first listed out home to sell with another agent an had a terrible experience, which did not result in a sale. After meeting Derrik we re-listed our home for sale. From the beginning, it was very clear Derrik was committed to selling our property. He took a lot of time to professionally advertise and show the home. Due to his "go-get-'em" attitude we had an offer within 3 weeks! I am confident that without Derrik's skill and attitude we would not have received such a good offer in that short of time. Since our selling experience was so good, we used Derrik's services to find and purchase a new home. Derrik was very patient showing us properties and gave us the impression he really wanted us to find the best home for us. We never felt pressured or rushed during the home search process; in fact, Derrik drove over and hour routinely to show us homes in our desired area. Once we made an offer, Derrik was a skilled negotiator and secured us the best deal possible. My wife and I highly recommend Derrik Carlson whether you are buying or selling a home!|
|I have worked with Derrik recently on the sale of my property in Park City, Utah and wanted to let people know my experience. Derrik was a pleasure to work with. He made it an easy transition of selling my house. He also helped get the house ready for showings since I now live in Delaware and was not able to be out there to do it myself. Derrik did a wonderful job and paid close attention to details. He was really looking out for my best interest and to get me the best deal. I would highly recommend Derrik to anyone buying or selling a house.|
|Easy, smooth, friendly and helpful. No sale is a pleasure, but ours was as simple and strait forward as I have ever had. I would without reservation use Derrik again.|
|Local knowledge: 5 Stars Process expertise: 5 Stars Responsiveness: 5 Stars Negotiation skills: 5 Stars He was professional and got us our prefect home. He listened to my concerns and addressed them immediately. I felt that he was more helpful than other Realtors that I have worked with in the past. I would love to work with Derrik again.|
|We found Derrik through his website and he was the only realtor who followed up after seeing we were interested in a home in the area. When we arrived in Utah Derrik took evening after evening getting us acquainted with the area. He was extremely respectful of our budget and never once made a recommendation of something we couldn't afford. He was intent on getting us the best value for our money. Derrik was patient with us through months of showings in which we just couldn't make up our minds. There was never any pushing to buy a house that was perfect for us just to speed things along. Finally, Derrik suggested that for what we were looking for we could probably build and stay in budget. He found us an incredible location and a great builder. The entire building process was frightening but Derrik walked through it every step of the way and helped us find a reliable company to finance with. We have recommended Derrik to our close friends and they have relayed to us this same confidence in his abilities and respect for their needs. Buying/building a home is a somewhat daunting task but with Derrik there to guide us through each step we felt 100% confidence in our decision...A+|
|We loved working with Derrik! He sold our house for us in Midway and was always available to us. He was always prompt to call back and meet us and answer questions whenever needed. We highly recommend working with Derrik!|
|When we first met with Derrik he asked us what we expected from him as our real estate agent. We told him that we valued responsiveness and honesty, and we told him what our wants and needs were for a vacation home. Derrik always responded to our phone calls, e-mails and text messages within 24 hours. Late one evening around midnight, we scanned and e-mailed some documents to him that were not time-sensitive, but he immediately sent us an e-mail stating that he had received the documents. Unlike many real estate agents, Derrik did not try to sell us a home that was out of our price range. Instead, he steered us towards properties that met our desires for a vacation home. Derrik recommended a property to us that we would have never considered initially because we were a little close-minded on our wants and needs, but that property ultimately met all of our goals, and we ended up buying that property. Throughout the process, Derrik was conscious of what an important decision this was for us, and he ultimately wanted us to be happy with our purchase in the end. We appreciated his honesty and work ethic in trying to find us a home that fit our needs. We are very happy with our home-buying experience with him, and we love our little slice of heaven in Deer Valley. We absolutely recommend Derrik to anyone desiring to purchase a home in the Park City area.|
|Colby Family - 2018 Update: 2 Transactions with Derrik|
|Derrik is such an amazing guy! Very personable. He genuinely cared what we wanted and found us exactly that! When we first met up with Derrik at a house he brought me a journal to write what I liked and disliked in each home we looked at and a coffee cup for my husband. I loved that he wanted to make it a good experience!|
