I had the pleasure of working with Derek both at Paragon Financial Mortgage and at GenEquity Mortgage, Inc.. He is a knowledgeable and passionate leader that inspires his people to stretch their capabilities and achieve remarkable results in both favorable and challenging financial circumstances. In particular, I find Derek to have unshakable ethics and a clear recognition of the proper way to conduct business. Furthermore, I am grateful to him for the unlimited amount of time he invested in helping me obtain an understanding of the mortgage industry.
