Dereck has been in the mortgage industry for 25+ years and has been consistently recognized as a top producer, thanks to his “Customer First” approach to doing business.

Dereck has been in the Reno area for more than 45 years and is a proud graduate of the University of Nevada. Dereck, his wife Desiree, and their four children love calling Northern Nevada their home.

I’ve worked with Dereck for over a decade, through both purchases and refinances, and have always found him to be incredibly helpful. Dereck is always quick to respond, pays attention to detail, and provides options along with all of the pluses and minuses to make the best decision for each transaction. I strongly recommend Dereck.

I recently refinanced my home with Dereck and Synergy Home Mortgage. Dereck and his staff were attentive to my needs and efficient in providing me the necessary documentation and information. I recommend Dereck and Synergy Home Mortgage and refer them to my friends.

Dereck was a lifesaver for me! When I bought my house he not only provided exceptional service, but he also found a rural grant that made it financially possible for me to become a homeowner. I recently refinanced and not only did he make the process painless and efficient, he found the best new loan for me at an interest rate that fit my budget. I can't recommend Dereck and his team enough, I would entrust any and all future loans to them.
