Derek Tovar: Marketing Director

REALTOR® at RE/MAX At The Coast

The Real Experience of Real Estate Derek has been a graphic designer for 10+ years working mostly in Real Estate. He started his career with one of the top agencies in Chicago specializing in print campaigns for luxury style properties throughout the city. Needing a change of scenery, he took a vacation to San Diego. After spending a week and falling in love with the city, he packed up his life and just moved! Derek wanted to expand his graphic design career, so he went back to school and got a degree in Visual Communications, graduating top of his class. He began working with a real estate marketing firm in Rancho Bernardo, helping to develop their signature marketing brand with print and web. After, he moved to a larger firm focusing directly on print marketing campaigns and moved his way up to the top design department working solely with new clients and special projects. An opportunity presented itself to become the Director of Marketing at one of his client’s real estate brokerages, and he jumped on it. Now he runs the department at RE/MAX At The Coast and helps all of the agents’ businesses thrive with his clever, unique, and beautiful marketing pieces. With a real-world approach, out-of-the-box thinking, experience, and understanding of what it takes to market real estate. Derek is the perfect fit here at the brokerage. Realizing real estate marketing was a passion, he decided to get his license and become an agent. Now with the experience of both marketing and selling, Derek has become a seasoned well rounded real estate agent.


"Derek, you were most helpful, responsive, and actively involved in the process, constantly following up on our questions and requests. Your friendly and positive approach encouraged and supported us as we went through the negotiations. If in the future, we are in need of an agent for further purchases, we will definitely contact you and refer you to our friends. You are a 5 star agent!"

Sheryl and Michael Durkin

"Derek is our Realtor. He helped us negotiate with the price we can afford. It took us 2 months to close escrow and he was patiently guiding us through the process from start to finish. Our loan was not the easiest one to close. There were so many road bumps along the way. We almost want to give up but knowing we have Derek on our side, his presence just gave us strength to move on.... and we did it!!! We love Derek because we found a great Realtor to represent us, negotiate for us, very sincere, honest, and professional......ALL IN ONE! Without Derek, we will not be living in our "DREAM" home now. He makes things happen. We will forever be grateful Derek! You are the best! We highly recommend you to our friends and families!"
