Derek is the owner and founding broker of the Legacy Mortgage Group with 8 offices throughout Texas. Derek started Legacy in 2001 with a strong desire to serve clients and ensure they had a superior loan experience. He is currently aligning with an Ohio based real estate company that is building a presence in the Detroit Metro area.
The Legacy Mortgage Group will touch down in South East Michigan, in the second half of 2016.
Derek is a 1990 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, Derek served his country honorably during the First Gulf War as an Infantry Lieutenant and Airborne Ranger. There and at West Point, he learned how to lead an organization, much how he leads his Legacy employees now. Business leadership and business success is simple really, if you apply the Golden Rule to your employees and your clients. Too often, though, that classic principle is violated, whether it is a small business or a giant corporation.
Derek is married and is a proud father of 3. While hard work, integrity, and service to his clients are hallmarks of Derek’s success, he is quick to credit his success to his Lord & Savior Jesus Christ, the source of his significance and motivation to serve others.
