Born in North Vancouver, Derek studied at UBC with a background in Biology and later on went to BCIT and graduated from their Real Estate Marketing Management program. Surrounded by Real Estate while growing up, Derek’s passion evolved watching how his parents’ hard work and dedication allowed him endless opportunities in life.

Derek joined Rennie in 2005 and was one of the original licensees at Rennie & Associates Realty. Year after year, Derek has been one of the top agents in the company earning the distinguished “Rennie Leaders” designation at the company. He has been involved with major projects in Vancouver working with some of the biggest Developers including: Woodwards, One Park Lane, the Village at False Creek, Crossroads, Richards Living, Maynards Block, Mandarin Residences, Wall Centre Central Park, and Strathcona Village. With the knowledge gained in these large scale developments, Derek has the ability to quickly assess his client’s needs and wants finding their perfect dream home. As well, his expertise in marketing exposure and negotiations helps maximize the sale of your home. He also has a Rental Property Management license providing a more vast knowledge for investor clients and how the Residential Tenancy Act affects their sale and purchase.

When not working, Derek loves the West Coast lifestyle and spending time with his friends and family. You will often see him at the dog park or walking the seawall with his dog Lola in South East False Creek where he resides.
 

Susan grew up in the quiet suburbia of North Delta before moving Yaletown after years of commuting to Vancouver while studying for her Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing at UBC. She knew city living was meant for her the moment she experienced the dynamic buzz of living Downtown.

Her first taste of Real Estate which has also been the driving force behind her career, was helping out with the launch of the Yaletown Park development in 2004. The excitement and anticipation of helping a client find the perfect home even in such a frenzied environment left Susan wanting more. Since then, Susan has worked in the Rennie Marketing Systems head office through many of the different departments to gain a full spectrum of knowledge to support her development of unique marketing strategies for each individual client. Susan decided to become a full time licensed Realtor in 2006 because of the desire to be on the front line and interact with clients directly. Since joining the sales force, Susan has learned the insides and out of strata development from the front line by selling various high profile developments in Vancouver such as Woodwards, Wall Centre False Creek, and Wall Central Central Park. Her devotion to the industry and her clients has led to a successful career milestones such as earning the Real Estate of Greater Vancouver’s Medallion Club status and Rennie & Associates Realty’s distinguished Rennie Leaders distinction.

Outside of real estate, Susan spends any free time exploring the endless selection of culinary gems throughout Vancouver when she’s not travelling to different corners of the world taking in what different cultures have to offer.
