We had the good fortune of connecting with Derek Boles and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Derek, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
Our business has a direct effect on our community. Real estate is a wealth vehicle for families, unfortunately everyone isnt taking advantage of it. With education and guidance, we are able to help change the wealth trajectory for families for generations.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We are a real estate brokerage that works primarily on the residential side of the business. We specialize in first-time homeowner relations and all that it entails. Many of our clients are teachers, nurses, & tradesman. We educate our clients on the proper steps, down payment assistance, first-time homeowner benefits, and how to spot a good investments. We are known for our consistent branding & our constant growth. We also place more value on production and less value on anything to the contrary. We know that real estate is not a popularity contest, but rather a vehicle to help families.

We are most proud of the success stories here at Legacy. Agents have transitioned to full time, have retired early, have grown to team leaders, and have maintained their business for years now. Many of us are parents and our children are thrilled to see us in action. They are our LEGACY, it means a great deal to us. What sets us apart if we use a team approach for our clients. You will interact with more than one of us over the course of your transaction, you will never be left alone or wondering where we are. We offer layers of support to our clientele, you get 2,3,4,5 for the price of 1.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We would probably do breakfast at snooze. Then hang out at the city centre, woodlands, or memorial area for the day. Happy hour we would probably roll down to the midtown/grey area and have a few drinks. For dinner we are heading to Mastros or Graces. Or daytime destinations during the visit would be Bonfire Wings, some backyard patio time with friends, and no houston trip is complete without a visit to 5015/Breakfast Club/or Turkey Leg Hut.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Coming from an athletic background, I’ve had the honor to play under some amazing men in my time on the planet. Johnson, Gurnell, Rodriguez, & Harrison to name a few. In addition there have been many “step in fathers” along the way that played a huge role in my development as a youth. Mr. Price, Pastor George, B.Allen, and others…..these men went out of their way to pour into me. Much respect to them. Professionally I credit individuals like Jeff Wallace for helping bring me along when I was rough around the edges, hopefully I am making you all proud today. And then there are the people we admire from afar, the people like Jay Morrison, Mav Carter, Magic Johnson, Eric Thomas, Damon John or my all time favorite……Master P. The examples that we can read about and study are just as encouraging as anything else. It gives someone like myself something to continue to strive for.
