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 as well as 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 be accepting a position with Altrua 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 home builders or business ventures. All the while, Derrik kept a pulse on the real estate markets and started purchasing and rehabbing additional investment 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 best serve his clients. He holds the designation of Certified Negotiation Expert, he 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 each client reach their Real Estate goals.

Testimonials for Derrik Carlson
Best realtor in Park City. Did a great job negotiating for us!
J. Conway - Deer Valley11/08/2018
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 City11/07/2018
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.

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 Derrik08/15/2018
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.

Derrik was knowledgeable about the market and full service throughout the whole process.
Luke - 2018 Update: 4 Transactions with Derrik11/29/2016
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 Client11/05/2015
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 Client01/07/2014
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.
