Happy Client Testimonials

Read what some of our clients have to say!

Melanie (Seller)

I was in the middle of handling 3 real estate transactions simultaneously and traveling for work. Derek was the most reliable, resourceful, responsive, of all three or any real estate professionals I'd ever come across.

Nastassia (Buyer)

Derek was an absolutely amazing real estate agent! I am a first time buyer and had plenty of questions and concerns. Derek was always there to answer and help with anything and everything.

Kenny & Michelle (Buyer/Seller)

Derek helped us both sell our place and buy our new place, and he was fantastic with both transactions! He was a perfect blend of being your friend and being your realtor, with being a professional 100% of the time. He is a great negotiator and truly understands how to sell a house! All this combined with his profound knowledge of the housing market and area, and great insight makes for the ultimate realtor. I would recommend him to everyone!

Hideki & Jeanie (Seller)

Derek Hirano is, by far, the best real estate broker I have ever had. I am 76 years old and have bought and sold numerous properties since 1972. Although I only met Derek a short time ago (about a year and a half), when he told me he had only 2 years of experience, I was just flabbergasted at how good he is! His basic qualities (kindness, honest, friendliness, hardworking, punctual, hygiene, cheerfulness…,always smiling, neatness, always clean and well dressed, etc.) plus being a very quick learner, has made him into a real estate salesman that ANYONE would trust and love to be around.


Derek was very personable and friendly. He was incredibly responsive too, and was on top of things the entire way through our home-buying process, giving us updates very quickly and answering all our questions. He gave us good advice on our offer and gave us tips on how to make it stand out, negotiated good terms with the seller, made the inspections and walkthroughs a breeze, and all around instilled confidence during this important purchase.


Derek is a great agent! He is incredibly attentive, accommodating and personable. He genuinely cares for your best interest when renting or buying a home and wants to make sure you do what's best for you and your family, it's not a business transaction for him. Derek never pressured us or pushed us into something we weren't comfortable with. We know when we are ready to buy, we are excited to work with your friend Derek and know we are in good trusting hands.

Richard (Buyer)

Derek is a man of patience, depth of knowledge and compassion. I spent so long in my home search with him - I must surely be one of the pickiest shoppers he has ever worked with. He never lost faith that we would find my dream house and he was right -- we could not be happier.

Mark (Buyer)

I met with Derek to get his opinion on homes in the Hawthorne/Gardena area and to get educated on the home buying process. He was super easy to talk to and honest, using past experiences and data to support his recommendations. Although my interaction with Derek didn't end in a home purchase (an imprudent time for my family), he was a great resource!

Seller - Rancho Palos Verdes, CA

Derek is well experienced and knowledgeable in his work, takes care of everything quickly and sincerely.

Buyer - Torrance, CA

I am a first time homebuyer and Derek helped educate me and guide me throughout the entire process. We had a 30 day escrow and he kept me on track every step of the way.
