About Derek Thornton

I first earned my licensed to sell real estate after the birth of our second son in 2013.  Right from the outset, this career has been an exhilarating ride. From helping first-time buyers get into the market, aiding in the sale of properties that cherish decades of memories, and assisting clients in making the pivotal decision between selling or renovating, these experiences have penned amazing chapters in my real estate career. And while it's incredibly rewarding to help people achieve their real estate goals, it's the stories that resonate with me - everyone is different, and every story is one-of-a-kind.

In February 2022, my family embarked on a global adventure that was truly life-changing. We had the privilege of visiting twenty-one countries (spanning five continents), with memorable experiences like observing tigers in the jungles of India and paragliding the skies of South Africa. Exploring diverse cultures, admiring natural wonders, and tasting local cuisines from Croatia to Cambodia has unquestionably created lasting memories for all of us.

This nearly 2-year hiatus was no small task – it took 4 years of saving and planning. However, it's an opportunity for which I'm incredibly grateful. It was a rewarding experience that recharged my passion for this business and allowed me to reflect on the importance of home and family.

Now that I've returned, I'm excited to help you take the next steps in your own life.  Give me a call and let's schedule a coffee together.  Always happy to chat about life, travel and real estate.
