Keller Williams Realty
2295 Iron Point Rd. #160
Folsom, CA 95630
As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

He has helped me and others gain a deeper understanding of a successful realtor. "
-Joel Stieber, Client
"I met Derek Sandoval when I was joining the KW team in Roseville, CA two years ago when he was the Assistant Team Leader. Right from the start, he impressed me. He is very quick-witted, highly intelligent, hard working and easy to get along with...what I probably appreciate most about Derek is his sense of humor. He is very disarming, which makes you want to talk with him and be a part of what he is doing because you know it is going to be great. He was always so encouraging and whenever I spoke with him, I knew I was gaining more knowledge every time. People respect Derek because he does what he says he is going to do. I respect him because I know I can trust him with anything business-related, but also personally, which I feel separates him from most. He truly cares about your business and you as a person. If you ever have the chance to talk with him, you will find that he tends to ask questions versus talk at you. I have always been a fan since I first met Derek. "
-Rob Ditter, Client
"I can't say enough positive things about Derek. Since the first time I met him he's always brought value to me; he's a true leader and industry professional.

I look forward in what comes in the future."
