Realtor / Owner
8010 Highway 55
Rockford, MN 55373
Hello, my name is Derrick Monroe and I am the CEO of The Derrick Monroe Group of Realtors. This page is simply to introduce myself to you and let you know a few things about myself. I was born and raised in Minnesota and a 1990 graduate of Orono High School. I moved to Rockford MN in 1990 where I also started my first business, an Auto Repair Shop. I found great success for many years in that business and was lucky enough to build many relationships with local people that have helped my real estate career today.
In 1999, I sold my business and started my real estate schooling at Pro Source Real Estate School in St. Paul, Minnesota where I successfully graduated in 2000. While in school, I worked with a close friend building homes which has been a great asset to my real estate career having provided me with the inside knowledge of how homes are constructed. As of today, I have helped in the complete construction of multiple properties. Since then I have been working full time with a great team of agents and continually taking more classes to stay up to date with all the latest tools.
I am married to Anne Monroe who enjoys her Minneapolis Wedding Floral business and we have a wonderful daughter and four naughty dogs whom I love very much (if you’re a dog lover…you know how they can be). In my off time I enjoy riding motorcycles, snowmobiling, working out / weight lifting and working in the shop restoring cars and construction work.
