Derek Thornton

As a graduate of BCIT and UBC, I was a web developer for over a decade prior to entering the wonderful world of real estate. I started, owned and operated my own company providing web development and hosting services to small and medium sized business, along with a few personal sites to round out the mix.

While this experience provided a well rounded education in general business practices, negotiation techniques, client relations and customer service – which are all qualities that transcend an individual profession – I especially pride myself on my experience negotiating contracts. Throughout my tenure as a web developer, I negotiated the acquisition of multiple companies, employee/sub-contractor agreements and ultimately, the sale of my business. I also managed to secure a deal on CBC’s Dragon’s Den with 2 highly experienced businessmen and negotiate the rights to a patent for another start-up.

I am an outside-the-box type of thinker and love a challenge. What this means for my clients, is that, whether I am helping you sell or buy property, you benefit from me constantly thinking about the best solution for you – and how to achieve it.

On a more personal level, I am a devoted husband (Kim) and father to two wonderful little boys – Jackson and Mason. I have eclectic tastes in music, food and movies. I love to travel, read, ski, and play hockey and, occasionally, you may see me around riding my bike.

I service the Surrey, South Surrey, White Rock, Richmond and Langley areas and specialize in New Construction, Investments, Relocation and Condominiums.
