Hello! Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to introduce myself. I’m Derek Ingalls, a licensed Realtor with Coldwell Banker Elite serving Fredericksburg, Virginia and the surrounding counties. My family includes, my wonderful wife of over 30 years, two daughters (both school teachers), one son who is currently enlisted in the Armed Forces and two adorable grandsons. As our family developed over the years, we moved a few times and had homes built to best suit our lives. Whether it was living close to town to keep our children easily involved in their current activities or living in the country on acreage to ride four wheelers and enjoy nature. Outside of real estate, my wife and I enjoy going antiquing and visiting small towns. We often run across items that we remember our grandparents having in their homes growing up as well as toys that I used to have as a child. I am always searching for vintage automotive displays from service stations, parts stores and dealerships. I also enjoy comedy, I am an avid sports fan, dog person, but most special to me is making my grandchildren laugh. After many years of management in production environments, a fellow real estate agent drew me into the business. Their love for what they did and the satisfaction they felt by guiding others into perhaps the biggest purchase of their life had me hooked to become an agent. The next chapter in my life has been the personal fulfillment I receive by helping people find the ideal place to write their own story. Give me a call if you are ready for your next chapter to begin, I’d love to help.
