About The Team

In the early summer of 2016, two real estate agents, Derek Andrews and Tom Struckhoff met by working on the same deal together. They hit it off and learned that each of them had special skills in different areas of real estate. Then it dawned them – what if they formed a team that would allow their clients to receive expert service no matter what the situation might be?

The rest is history. They gathered up all of their resources to put together one of the most comprehensive and helpful real estate services in the industry. Terra Firma Realty continues to provide outstanding service to its clients before, during, and after the sale. Derek and Tom always go the extra mile for their clients – ready to provide solutions both real estate, and non-real estate related.

  • Great team, great attitude.

    He is THE real estate expert for Hollywood, WeHo and the Valley. Just handed me keys to my condo with a super view. Great team, great attitude. Very helpful in all details. Helped me through a difficult escrow process that involved some changes and a post inspection period price drop. Very good negotiator. Helped me post-sale get a home warranty. Found me a diamond in the rough and a good deal. Showed me a similar unit with a lot of renovation that gave me insight into future possibilities. And he's funny!
