Derek Parker, Senior Sales Associate
Derek Parker grew up in Manalapan, moving to the island with his family when he was two years old. Manalapan provided a safe, coastal lifestyle that he cherished growing up.

His deep knowledge of the local community offers a unique experience for individuals and families looking for homes in the area. With each home, there is an opportunity for buyers to create the lifetime of memories that he experienced.
During school, Derek excelled in the classroom and in athletics. Manalapan became a central meeting point for lacrosse practices and team meet-ups. Outside of work, Derek has more than five years of experience training in Mixed Martial Arts and kickboxing. He also enjoys spending time with his dog, Jordan, at the local Lantana dog park.
