Derrick Rhodes is a lifelong resident of Chicago, Illinois. His passion for real estate stems from his love of the Chicagoland area, combined with “all things sports and food”. Derrick’s interests in international travel also merge well with Chicagoland’s diverse history, traditions, and cultures.
Derrick uses his skill set as a classroom teacher to communicate with his clients on a level that is comfortable and informative. He is aware that time is important to all, but patience gets the job done. While showing a property, he takes time to point out the pros and cons of the property and highlights local attractions, schools, and restaurants. It is important that Derrick’s clients feel that their concerns and interest are heard, and he will work diligently to find the best property that satisfies their needs.
