Derrik Carlson - Real Estate Agent Resume

Derrik Carlson ExperienceDerrik 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, earning degrees in finance and management.

While attending college at Westminster, Derrik, unknowingly at the time, met the beautiful woman who eventually would become the love of his life and his wife.   Between meeting Holly and the wedding day, adventure and education within the real estate industry 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 in Salt Lake City, Derrik helped homeowners and investors purchase and refinance properties from Alaska to South Carolina.

At 23, Derrik purchased his first investment property before informing his family that he would accept a position with Altura 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.  Meanwhile, Derrik kept a pulse on the real estate markets and started purchasing and rehabbing additional investment properties for long-term rentals.

Between purchasing his ninth investment property and marrying Holly, he decided it was time to change directions and applied his knowledge and skill to help others buy and sell property luxury real estate in Park City and the Deer Valley® Resort area.

Derrik holds the designation of Certified Negotiation Expert.  He is a member in good standing with the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing and is a certified Resort & Second Home Real Estate advisor.  Derrik is committed to providing exceptional service to help clients reach their Real Estate dreams and goals.
