A Top Agent of the Luxury Division of Keller Williams Park City

#2 Agent Keller Williams in Utah | #35 Globally

Derrik Carlson #35 agent for Keller Williams WorldwideMy training to become a skilled negotiator and a top Park City real estate agent started in my youth. By the time I was five, I was financing my older brother's lemonade stands, and at six years old, I was trading baseball cards. Interestingly, many of those skills help when negotiating a million-dollar transaction.

I grew up in Wyoming, skiing in Park City, and other resorts in the Rocky Mountains. After high school, I attended college at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, where I earned degrees in business finance and business management. While attending college, I began financing homes nationwide, traveling everywhere from Alaska to Tennessee.

After graduating from Westminster College in Salt Lake, I had the opportunity to manage a condo development on the island of Roatan, Honduras. Soon after that, the mortgage meltdown struck the global economy. I returned to Utah, trying to figure out my next step in life; I began buying as many investment properties as possible. I taught myself how to remodel homes, and by the age of 26, I owned nine investment properties but was bored with nothing to do but collect rents once a month. It was time to expand on my real estate abilities.

That's when Holly, the young lady I just married after two years of dating, thought it would be best for me to help others buy and sell real estate in the Park City area. So I joined the Park City Board of Realtors, and although it took a few more years than I expected, I became a Top 5 Realtor in closed sales volume for Keller Williams in the State of Utah. 

In the beginning, I grew quickly because of the laser focus on providing elite customer service, market knowledge, negotiation, and marketing.   Still, today I try to keep a Keep it Simple business plan when representing luxury home or condo buyers in Park City and Deer Valley.

The areas where I sell the most properties are all along the Wasatch back, but most are near the ski resort or a luxury golf course nearby. As a group, we focus on real estate in Park City, Utah.

I've found my niche in helping clients buy and sell luxury resort real estate. We use technology to help clients quickly and efficiently understand the Park City area real estate market and market listings like a machine. 

My average client is anything but average. They typically earn their own money or take their family business to new heights and are within five to ten years of retirement. There is a good chance they went to college to become a doctor, attorney, or live in the finance world, but somewhere along the way, they either became a CEO or CEO. My clients understand the value of a dollar, but typically they are entering a new season of their life where it is time to start enjoying the fruits of the years of hard work. 100% I can say that I honestly do work with excellent people!

Our Real Estate Business Runs on Three Philosophies

    · Whatever property our clients purchase, we will sell in the future. We want to ensure home buyers get the best property that suits their needs and that it will be comparatively easy for them to sell in the future.  
    · If we focus on the long-term relationship and clients' well-being, the business will continue to grow.
    · Treat people the way you want to be treated.

Your personal information is confidential, and we will never sell it to an outside party. Suppose you are considering selling your Park City property. In that case, I'd suggest you limit the number of seller's agents you speak with and try to hold back on items that could hurt you if that agent finds a buyer for your home if you list the property with a different agent.

I say to be selective about who you talk to because we work in a small town; an agent can circle back with a genuine buyer anytime throughout the home buying process, and the agent will know your motivation for selling. Although this may not happen too often, I've seen it happen multiple times. A Broker unable to list the property may even be speaking with another Realtor in their office who happens to be writing an offer on your home.

You may not want to list with an agent that states they have multiple buyers for your home, and it doesn't even have to hit the multiple listing service. When the listing agent represents the seller and the buyer, it truthfully means there is no representation for the buyer or seller, and it's a comfortable spot for a conflict of interest to arise.

A good listing agent will typically refer the buyer to the buyer's agent, representing the buyer under an exclusive buyer agency. You want your home to hit the Park City MLS because many potential buyers could push up the sales price.

If you choose to interview one or more of the Top Park City Real Estate Brokers, please get in touch with me so I can discuss how we operate differently than most. For example, besides being an advocate for you, I do not participate in Dual Agency, where the listing agent is neutral in the transaction and only a facilitator - my goal is to help meet your objectives and exceed your expectations.

We are so confident in our listing service that we offer a 1 Day Listing Guarantee. That is precisely what it sounds like! You cancel your listing agreement after 24 hours on the market without a long-term binding contract if you don't believe we have your best interest at heart. 

I've been offering this Guarantee since 2015 and have never had anyone cancel their listing because they were upset with their seller representation. We have sold every home we've listed since. I don't know another Park City Top Realtor offering any satisfaction-guaranteed program.

We have listened to our clients and worked together to build our real estate business to the top tier of real estate professionals. We use an extraordinary amount of cutting-edge technology that allows us to attract the buyer who is most likely to participate in a real estate transaction of a property in your price range.
