Derek Sankey

Broker/ Owner
License #:
MA9036306 & RI15291

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.

About Derek
Derek Sankey began selling real estate in Southeastern Massachusetts and Northern Rhode Island in 1999. He quickly grew his career by helping friends and family buy and sell their homes. Derek then moved into investment properties, commercial and all aspects of residential sales including rentals with great success. In 2002 he opened Sankey Real Estate which he now oversees the day to day operation of the company along with his continued dedication to helping sellers and buyers with all of their real estate needs. He has reputation of being a closer, very straightforward, honest, fair, hard working and diligent.

Derek expanded his knowledge in 2005 when he started working REO’s, Foreclosures, Short Sales and HUD properties. This experience has provided him with the ability to negotiate through some of the most difficult sales. He ran a 5 agent elite team that oversaw multiple properties at once. This required strong communication and management skills to coordinate all of the tasks required with REO’s. Local sellers and buyers have now utilized his knowledge to assist them in selling and buying their properties.

Derek also invests in real estate properties to flip and hold. The types of properties he’s invested in are single family, multifamily and vacation properties. He owns multiple properties now with his invest group throughout New England. The properties he’s owned have been in New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island and Massachusetts giving him further experience to pass along to his customers and clients.

Derek grew up in the North Attleboro and Mansfield. He graduated from North Attleboro High School in 1988. He has lived in the area his whole life which has been an asset to his real estate career for knowing the area well. When not selling real estate, he enjoys spending time with his wife Kerri and his four children. He also enjoys time in their Maine home and the outdoors. Golf, hiking, skiing, snowmobiling and cars are of other interest to Derek.


"My boyfriend and I had the best experience with Derek Sankey. We are first time home buyers and Derek made the process as stress free as possible. He took us under his wing. Always responds within 24 hours, great communication , if he didn't have the answer at hand he always had one for us by the end of the day. He's very honest and upfront and great at what he does. I highly recommend Sankey Reality!"

"Mary Nelson sold my condo and was fantastic with this difficult sale. We had multiple offers on day one, and she was clear and communicative throughout - settling with a best and final amid a flurry of communication on our deadline day.. And that's where the fun started, as we were trying to close within 30 days, and the property management company is head shakingly impossible with paperwork and professionalism. Mary was a dogged warrior, going above and beyond any call of duty to get the required certifications from the ridiculously incompetent company and their reps. Which really leaves unsaid every other thing she did - arranging electricians quickly, going back and forth about minor changes in the final agreement (which was delayed a few days due to buyer issues) I highly recommend Mary Nelson and would gladly work with her again. Great Job."
