Personal Profile

As a proud lifelong resident of the Tampa Bay area, I am passionate about the local real estate market and truly believe the area has something to offer for everyone. My real estate career began in 1996 as a residential appraiser covering Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco Counties. Having completed thousands of real estate appraisals over the years gives me a tremendous advantage over other agents in our area. While most realtors make a "best guess" at the value of a home via a CMA (comparative market analysis), my expertise and experience allow me to deliver the most accurate value of the home you're trying to sell or put an offer on to buy. In 2011 I transitioned to being a full-time Realtor believing my extensive knowledge of the local real estate market could benefit both buyers and sellers. In 2013 I joined Century 21 Executive Team where I quickly became one of its top producers. I am fanatical about my level of customer service, consistently winning Century 21's Quality Service Award while going above & beyond to ensure my clients' real estate needs are met.In addition to my real estate and appraisal experience, I have a solid educational background having earned a BS degree in Finance from the University of South Florida. I believe that my unique skillset allows me to offer my clients distinct advantages and unmatched attention to detail when listing their homes for sale or representing them while buying a home in today's challenging real estate market!

Deric was able to help me as a first time homebuyer feel confident in my decision to purchase a home. He helped me to navigate all of the steps throughout the process and helped me to undertand all of the terminoligy along the way. I was able to balance all of my options regarding house decisions with his help and his quick responses allowed me to move the process forward in a timely manner.

As a real estate agent, Deric Raymond was highly recommended to me by my son, another of Deric's success stories.

As a transplant from Ohio to Florida, I was not aware of the real estate market of the North Tampa area and its offerings. Deric carefully listened to my wants, needs and expectations as was evident to the homes on the market we visited. He not only listened to my words, but watched my reactions to the areas and homes to help determine what I was really looking for and what I would be happy with. He continued to encourage when it appeared I was disappointed with not finding the right home. Deric presented himself as a true professional, strong knowledge of the large surrounding area, aware of the homes on the market and frequently offered his time to fit my schedule. He not only took time to show the homes, he explained the surrounding areas and their offerings. Once I had made a decision fo purchase, Deric continued to walk me through the purchasing steps: what to expect, attended meetings, making calls and providing constant guidance through the process. Although I have moved into my new home, Deric continues to offer his welcomed expertise as I complete the final steps of my purchase to my satisfaction. I would highly recommend Deric Raymond to anyone who is desiring to purchase a home.

Deric took the time to connect with our family. He invested his time in us and we felt that. We've used other realtors before and didn't have a positive experience so it's been a great change to be working with someone who knows their stuff and delivers.

Deric is a professional through and through and his appraisal background was a major plus with the purchase of this home.

I was referred by a great friend who has worked with him for many years and I am looking forward to referring him to my friends so they benefit from the experience we have had.

Thanks Deric for all your hard work!

Deric Raymond was not just a Realtor, he was a epitome of customer service.

He assisted us every step of the way, and in a lot of cases did things for us so we wouldn't have to worry about it ourselves.

He was quick and responsive in regards to anything we needed or any questions we had.

He had great knowledge of all aspects of the process, including processes on the mortgage brokers and underwriters side of the deal.

He looked out for our best interest in ways we didn't even consider.

He gets things done, even when he has to get other people going and make sure they do their jobs as well.

We consider ourselves lucky that we found Deric, he was a referral from a business associate that spoke very highly of him, and we have zero regrets using him.

We hope to see more of him in the future.

Deric was absolutely outstanding and a pleasure to work with. The amount of knowledge he has about the Tampa Bay market is incredible; it was a tremendous asset to us to have him on our side, and he worked very hard to get us into a home we absolutely love. Deric's level of care from start to finish was seriously impressive - he is highly customer-focused, and stayed in constant contact with us throughout the process, never leaving us feeling out of the loop. No details escape him, and he was also incredibly kind and patient with us as we toured multiple homes and conducted inspections. Deric's impeccable professionalism and great personality put us at ease through the process, and his help was absolutely vital to us getting a great deal on our new home. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone seeking a new home in the Tampa Bay area. Thank you so much!

Deric was my son and daughter in laws agent. I accompanied them on a few property viewings and met Deric. I found him friendly,knowledgeable and trustworthy .

Deric understood that this would be first time we used technology to view and esign paperwork. Helped us tremendously and even handled some inspections while we were out of town.

He excelled in all aspects of an agent ! Listened to our needs, sent us to appropriate properties. Once we decided, kept in contact with us and did everything to make purchase go smoothly.

Excellent overall experience! Also , Deric followed up with us and got info from seller on resetting his nest thermostat and other WIFI enabled appliances. Sent us info on home warranty, utility providers and removal of stuff left behind by seller.

He did what he said he would do and was accessible at all times and always responded in a timely manner.

Working with Deric was great. He is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of real estate. His experience in appraisals was quite valuable as well, as he was able to negotiate a price drop of over $20,000. His attentiveness to questions and concerns as well as his attention to detail are beyond phenomenal. He is prompt and precise and definitely on the ball. This is my second transaction with him and again, made it all effortless and easy. Deric is just an all around good guy who truly looked out for my best interest.

Deric Raymond came highly recommended by trusted friends. Both had purchased their homes in the same county where I wanted to buy. Upon being recommended to Deric and meeting with him, I found that all the accolades I had heard earlier regarding Deric were immediately obvious. I should add that everyone--from inspectors to loan officers to title agents-- independently and voluntarily spoke highly of Deric.

As a first time home buyer, I had first expected many trials and much stress would be the norm for the purchasing experience. I consider myself fortunate and very grateful to have had worked with Deric. He made the whole process smooth.

Deric Raymond is both personable and professional. His enthusiasm for his work and his concern for his client are always evident. He is knowledgable, dedicated, and trustworthy. It has been a very successful and pleasant experience working with Deric. I wouldn't hesitate recommending him to friends and family or working with him again.

Deric is someone we knew and trusted. Knowledge of the local residential real estate market, appraisal and sales background were key contributors in confidently selecting Deric as our realtor,

We had a time constraint for the sale of the home. Deric worked diligently to meet our desired results for a sale by a relatively short deadline.

Deric was always available for any questions we had throughout the process.

Deric Raymond went above and beyond to meet our needs when it came to finding a new home. He hopped off an airplane after a cross-country red-eye flight and drove an hour to ferry us around to houses all day for our first day of showings, then came back again the next weekend to help us choose between our final two options.

Once we'd picked a home, Deric gave us a fair assessment of what the home was worth, then advised us on a strategy for the offer/counteroffer phase. His skills as an appraiser are invaluable, as he could tell us what potential issues the houses we looked at had and how that would factor into the home's value.

After the offer was accepted, Deric made sure all of our questions were answered, and was incredibly diligent in making sure everything at the inspection and final walkthrough went smoothly.

He's smart, personable, detail-oriented, and completely on top of things. I'm sure Deric had other clients while he was working with us, but we always felt we were his main focus throughout the process.

I hope to never have to buy another house, but if I do, Deric will be the guy I call to not only sell this one -- but to find my next one as well.

I was in the military for 26 years and have dealt with numerous real estate agents in the past. I have bought and sold at least 6 houses in the last 15 years and Deric Raymond was by far the best I have ever had. He was always willing to be a part of the purchase design and inspection of my new home. There were times when I told him he didn't need to attend the trivial builders meetings but he made it a point to be there. He was an absolute professional in all of his dealings. His knowledge about the market and area greatly benefitted us in our final selection. He was also able to provide us some valuable tips for homesrptead exemptions that will allow us to save more money in the future. Not only have I found a good agent but I truly consider him a very good friend.

I met Deric in 2015 when he helped me find the perfect home. I was a first time home buyer and didn't know what to expect, but he made the entire process so easy and stress free. When it came to a time that I needed to move, I knew without a doubt to contact him. He gathered all the necessary information for me on my options for renting or selling the property. I ended up deciding on selling and Deric helped me figure out how to best stage my home for potential buyers and hired a professional photographer who took some beautiful shots of my place. Within two days of listing we had fantastic offer. I couldn't be happier with the ease of the sale, not to mention I made a pretty nice profit on it. I feel like that has a lot to do with the professionalism of Deric.

To be honest, I'm a pretty detailed person with big items such as this, and there isn't much I miss, but Deric really impressed me. His ability to navigate when to place my house on the market was genius. With our other home being builit we needed the timing to be perfect so we could close on one, and then close on the other and have a smooth transition. Deric nailed it! From catching items that I missed in preperation and contract to being able to handle showing times around us having 4 large dogs as home. I would recommend Deric to any home owner who truely wants to be able to rely on their realtor and have faith that the right things are being done. Thanks again! Deric!

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Deric Raymond on one of those jump & run referrals on a weekend that only agents understand. He was referred by a friend on a whim while I was vacationing in Florida. His quick preparation & response was amazing(throughout the process too), appreciated & endeared me to his ability & trustworthiness to handle a transaction for me while I lived 1000 miles away. He coordinated & navigated me through the process by educating & diffusing any anxieties I may have had through negotiations & inspections. Deric prepared me for any expectations of Florida & local condo laws to proceed to closing without any unsatisfied issues to prevent a smooth closing. I was extremely pleased that I entrusted him to handle things on my behalf. Sorry it took me so long to actually sit down & communicate have grateful I am to Deric Raymond. I am also a real estate Broker so I know what it takes to go beyond someone's expectations. He is definitely an asset to any real estate transaction. Thank you.

Deric did everything he could and then some to make my home purchase smooth and successful.
