When selling I am usually quite anxious and want to know about every viewing and what the reactions were. Derrick and Gord would message me every time and follow up with every realtor in a timely manner, and this made a difference. I never had to reach out to them because they would always beat me to it! They also made a huge effort to communicate with my tenant (I had a tenant while it was for sale) and make sure he was comfortable, which made the viewings smoother. Derrick and Gord are the most transparent and honest realtors we have ever worked with and we will definitely use them again for our next purchase or sale.

Derrick came highly recommended by friends of ours and did not disappoint. From initial consultation to closing date Derrick was friendly, communicative, incredibly helpful, and such a pleasure to work with. In addition to his amazing communication, we particularly appreciated the support with staging our house prior to listing. As we were out of town when our house was listed and then quickly sold, Derrick's flexibility and consistent check-ins were indispensable. Would 100% recommend Derrick to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Calgary area. Thanks so much again Derrick, we are very grateful.

By: James Alexander

Derrick is so great at what he does. His kind and honest nature allowed us to be confident in the purchase of our first home. Derrick's breadth of industry knowledge and strong communication skills allowed us to narrow down our search criteria and realize what we wanted in our house. He took the stress out of an often stressful decision. Your realtor can shape your experience, and we are so grateful for Derrick's guidance. - James and Rebecca

Calgary’s top realtor? Derrick’s positive attitude and professionalism are unparalleled. He is honest, trustworthy, patient, and was always available to answer any questions we had. Derrick went above and beyond to help us find exactly what we were looking for! Absolutely will recommend!

By: Matthew Sande

Derrick helped me navigate the pitfalls of the Calgary real estate market for the first time to find my first home. He offered solid advice and has a comprehensive list of contacts to help with anything along the way, when the time comes to move I hope derrick is still in the business!

By: Amy Park

We have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with Derrick. His professionalism, honesty, trustworthiness, and positive outlook made the entire process smooth and stress-free. Derrick’s ongoing communication with us made us feel at ease and well informed. Selling our condo within 24 hours of listing was the icing on the cake. I would recommend Derrick to anyone looking to buy or sell!

By: Grace-Ann Campbell

I can not say enough good things about Derrick. He found us our dream family home in an absolutely insane market within a couple months! Our family could not be more grateful for the countless hours he put in. His constant check-in's and eye for detail was what made our experience once in a life time. He made the process so simple by giving multiple references for all the steps (people) we needed to go through. 10/10 recommend.

By: Leslie Larson

We were very impressed with the professional way that Derrick handled this sale. The photos of the condo were amazing and I am sure that is a big reason it sold so quickly. I highly recommend Derrick for any real estate you want to sell or buy!

By: Lexy Baker

We really enjoyed working with Derrick. He took the time to help us find the perfect home for our family, gave us solid advice, and was very communicative during the entire process. You’ll be in good hands!

By: Briana Inlow

Derrick was extremely professional and supportive as we prepared to sell our first home for a big move out of Calgary. He took us through all of our options and empowered us to make our own informed decisions. Staging expert Christie Deans went through room by room and gave us a step by step on how to prioritize preparing our home which helped it to feel a less overwhelming, and dare I say it, somewhat more fun task to stage it! The expertise and attention to detail Derrick and Christie provided instilled a lot of trust and confidence during what can be a very stressful process! Highly recommend. Thank you!!

By: Suzanne Devonshire Baker

We enjoyed working with Derrick, very much, and appreciated his positive attitude and his awareness of, and involvement in, the community. He was very responsive to our questions and concerns.

By: Reid Larson

Was recommend by my cousin and was happy I followed his advice. He did a a really good job not only with the listing making the place look amazing, but he also knew his stuff. The House sold fast and we got more than we expected which I guarentee we couldnt have done on our own. This was one of those times that the realtor fully earned his commision.

By: Brad McMillan

We've dealt with Derrick on a couple of real estate transactions and found him to be exactly what you want in a realtor. He is very customer focused, responsive, honest, and helpful.

By: Jeff Scott

Would recommend! Derrick helped us with the purchase of our new home. He knew the neighbourhood very well and was always available. He took the time to understand our needs and present all alternatives and options. During the final negotiation Derrick provided valuable advice to ensure it was fair to everyone. He can be trusted as an advisor to one of the most important decisions we have made!

By: Ian Leew

Derrick is who you want to be your realtor! He is professional, diligent, knowledgeable, prompt and most importantly, he is trustworthy and truly wants the best for you. I guarantee you will like Derrick and be happy with his services. Ask him to take you golfing, I’ve heard if you beat him he will give you a discount!

By: Kent Wigington

Derrick is the kind of realtor that you dream of having on your side. Our home buying process was a bit trickier than usual as we weren’t living in Calgary at the time of our search. Not only did Derrick understand what we were looking for but he also made every effort to accommodate our situation. He was organized, respectful of our time and very professional. Because of Derrick we ended up finding the perfect home in a neighbourhood we love!

By: Sandy Henry

Derrick Newman was our Realtor on a recent home purchase, he was fantastic! He was always available for any questions or concerns no matter how big or small. He showed me many properties and was always was kind, had lots patience and was professional in guiding me in the right direction and timing when buying our home. I wouldn’t hesitate to call on Derrick again for any future real estate adventures!

By: Kyla Lawson

Derrick is the best! He helped us find our dream house and made the negotiation and smooth and stressless process!

By: Alex Cotoara

It was a pleasure to work with Derrick. He was very responsive every step of the way and we could trust him.

By: Real LeBlanc

I've had the pleasure of working with Derek more than once. He is very hard working and has integrity. Highly recommend.

By: Andrew Choi

Fantastic realtor. Very knowledgeable, friendly, responsive. Would highly recommend.

By: Meghanne U.

Gord is exceptional not only as a realtor, but as a person with kids of his own who truly understands how equally frightening and exciting this process can be for a first time homeowner. He was absolutely diligent when it came to searching within my price range, answering all of my questions (and there were many) and ensuring I felt comfortable at each stage of the process. His kindness and genuine interest in seeing me end up in a place that I would be safe and happy in was clearly reflected in his actions and the way he conducted his business throughout the entire process. I love my new place, and when it is time for me to upgrade from a condo to a house, I will certainly call Gord again!

By: Lynn and Joanne F

We were uncertain about the buy/sell process and had some reservations. Gord described the entire process and the various steps required. Both he and Derrick were truly knowledgeable regarding the price to set on our house as well as what we should do to make the house more appealing for to prospective buyers. Within three days of the sign going up, our house was sold, and we began to look for a more suitable home. Gord and Derrick showed us numerous properties and we finally decided on a lovely bungalow in Rocky Ridge. They guided us through the buying process, helped us to negotiate a fair price that we felt extremely comfortable with. They recommended home inspectors and lawyers to help us through the final stages of the sale and purchase. Following our experience with the Newman & Deans Team, we have no hesitations in recommending them to other prospective clients. We are very pleased with the results that they were able to achieve for us.

By: Marcin and Heather P.

They were accommodating, timely, and professional. They were very effective in keeping us on track with our priorities for a house and offering helpful feedback on prospective properties. We are in love with our new home in Patterson and highly recommend this "Realty Dream Team"!

By: Caitlin U. and Kevan M.

As neither of us had been through the home-buying process, we were both very anxious and unsure of what to expect. Gord and Derrick invited us to their office for a Buyer's Presentation. They described the entire home buying process in a way that we could both understand. Topics included their roles, home search, market analysis, offers, negotiation, home inspection, role of lawyer, etc. They covered all items that we were unsure of. At the end of the presentation, Gord asked us if we had any questions or concerns. Our answer was, "Not anymore"! We started our property search with Gord and Derrick and eventually found a home in Braeside that checked all the boxes, although it was priced just a bit over our budget. They helped us to negotiate a price with the seller that was right on the mark. We would highly recommend the "Newman & Deans Team".

By: Kyla L. and Dan R.

I will be the first one to admit that I was skeptical about the value of using a realtor (apologies to realtor friends!). But after selling our condo in a tough condo market and then looking for a new place when our requirements were very specific - I have a whole new appreciation for how much a great realtor can do. Gord's knowledge of construction & renovations and his ability to see what’s possible in a house in combination with Derrick's knowledge of the market and holding us to our requirements made the whole process fun and efficient. Dan and I highly recommend using Derrick & Gord for anyone thinking about buying or selling in Calgary. Full disclosure, Derrick is also a good friend of ours. But he is the kind of person that once you work with him, he will become your friend too.

By: Kent and Tanis W.

They took extra time to understand our exact needs and worked within our budget to find us the perfect home. Knowledgeable, understanding, hard working, professional, patient. These are the words I would use to describe both Derrick and Gord during the time we worked worth them. Overall, we had an amazing experience and would 100% recommend them to anyone looking for representation. Thank you so much guys, we truly love our new home!

By: Vanessa Henandez-Munoz (Red Dot Services)

My interactions with Gord and his whole team have been so fun, positive and pleasant due to their friendly, easy-going personalities and attention to detail. The properties I've photographed for Gord and Derrick have been ready each time and we've been able to develop a cohesive working relationship, open to each other's ideas! I always look forward to photographing their listings! I have no doubt that anyone fortunate enough to work with them, is in the best of care! Thank you so much from myself and team Red Dot!!

By: Janet and Adam M

Not only did they help us get into our new home, but we're very helpful in selling our home - even in a pandemic. Gord was quick to do multiple open houses before the pandemic to really get people in the house and when the pandemic hit, they did everything they could to help - 360 virtual tour, helping make sure showings were safe and following up on feedback of those showings to get the house sold. They also have team that they work with (lawyer, photographer) to help make the process less painful. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking at buying or selling a house

By: David and Leslie W.

Derrick and Gord did a great job providing us with various options on the criteria we requested. We arranged a day to come to Calgary and view 7 different sites at which time we made an offer on a great property in Killarney. Their thoroughness and professional manner made this experience truly enjoyable and we are extremely pleased with purchase we made. I would recommend Gord and Derrick to any potential clients who are looking to buy or sell property in Calgary.

By: Lennin L. and Paula A.

Even though the locations we were interested in were in rural locations outside the Calgary region, they did everything possible to find just what we were looking for on a beautiful Clearwater County location with a view of the Rockies. "Newman and Deans" were always on our side and worked hard to make our purchase as simple and successful as possible. They answered all our questions, provided great advice and found the property that met our needs. We highly recommend them!

By: Joe and Camille B

Not only did they help find our dream home but were very professional and thoughtful throughout the whole experience. In fact, we continue to keep in touch even after the sale completion! Great team and we would highly recommend them to anyone.

By: Jason and Nicole E.

Throughout the entire process, both individuals acted with a high level of professionalism and ensured all our interactions were timely and efficient. We also never felt pressured into making decisions we weren't comfortable with and appreciated the transparency that both offered. Their combined experience and knowledge proved to be exactly what we needed to sell our home. Big thanks for all the help along the way!

By: Sharon S. - Stapley Holdings Inc

The condo is in East Village of Calgary and the market was quite soft. Despite that, “Newman & Deans” were able to secure a buyer. We found Gord and Derrick to be professional, courteous, and friendly in guiding us through the process. We would recommend them for all residential real estate transactions.

By: Marcus and Daniela

Buying or selling property can be a stressful and tedious process, made easier by good, genuine support from an experienced and trusted realtor. Gord and his "Newman and Deans" teammates, Mark Edmunds and Derrick Newman, were quick to understand our needs and wants, transparent with pros and cons, and just the right amount of resolve to provide space but act when needed (which can be a pain point with potentially competing interests). A great experience and an even better outcome for us. Thank you, “Newman and Deans” Team!

By: Doug H.

As I was not very familiar with the communities, locations of amenities, etc. in Calgary, I needed to trust in someone to guide me in the right direction and ensure that I found the right property in a timely fashion. Additionally, I was not able to be in Calgary to view any properties until just a few weeks prior to requiring possession. Gord was very helpful in focussing in on my needs. He viewed properties and sent photos, etc. When I finally arrived in Calgary, I was pleased that Gord had found the property that “checked all the boxes” plus a beautiful mountain view to boot!

By: Lindsay and Jon S.

He was extremely thorough, flexible, focused, easy to work with and really made us feel like a priority. We have worked with a few other Realtors in the past, and never felt as taken care of as we did with Gord. We would definitely work with him again in the future and highly recommend to anyone in the market for a new home!

By: Jon and Andi G.

He was extremely knowledgeable on advising us on which areas to concentrate on to make our home in Cranston show the best. He had great communication skills and answered all our questions. We had a showing within 2 hours of hitting the market, 13 showings the next day with multiple offers and we accepted an offer well over list price within 24 hours. To say that he went the extra mile would be an understatement and we can't thank him enough. Highly recommended!

By: Heather and Mike R.

Not only is he personable, but he is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in this field. As first-time home buyers, we had tons of questions. He was very responsive and offered great advice. Thanks so much Gord! We are so excited to settle into our new home.

By: Jeremy R.

He helped me find and purchase my first home in an unbelievably competitive market here in Calgary. I honestly don't think I would have succeeded in finding the perfect home as quickly as I did without Gord's dedication, sound advice, and diligent communication. Thanks Gord!

By: Derek and Terri M

Gord worked hard for us within unreasonable timelines and at unreasonable hours (on his vacation) to ensure we not only received a reasonable offer for our Auburn Bay home but that we were able to secure the purchase a great quality home in Willow Park as well. Gord brought it all together and we couldn't have done it without him. Thanks again!

By: Paula A. and Lennin L

Gord and Derrick helped us to find the right home. Gord was transparent, upfront, and was able to find us a house that fit right in our price range! He was extremely communicative and easy to reach to answer any of our questions at all times. Thank you so much for your help and support. We will 100% recommend them to our close friends and family.

By: Wayne L.

He gave so much time to helping me find the right place. He showed a variety of properties to help me make the right decision about what I really needed. Gord often called just to check on how I was feeling about the experience as it took a long time to find the right place. Gord always listened to my feedback after a viewing, and ensured the next location reflected my thoughts. When I had questions about the cost of renovations or repairs, Gord did the extra phone calls to find the answers to save me time and make it more convenient. Gord is knowledgeable, patient, a great listener and very intuitive. I highly recommend calling Gord for buying or selling a home

By: Hilary Fox

Derrick helped us find our perfect house in a tough and changing market. More important than anything, he was a great listener, patient and helped us answer our countless number of questions quickly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Derrick to everyone I know.
