Tell Us Your Story

Gord helped us with the sale and purchase of our homes.

Gord worked hard for us within unreasonable timelines and at unreasonable hours (on his vacation) to ensure we received not only a reasonable offer for our sale, but purchased a great quality home as well. Gord brought it all together and we couldn't have done it without him. Thanks again!

Derek & Terri M.

I was fortunate enough to connect with Gord and Derrick through my husband, Paul the Mortgage Broker!

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!!

Working with Derrick and Gord was a joy because they were always communicating with us throughout the sale process of our condo.

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.

This was my fourth time using a realtor, and I have to say Gord was absolutely excellent in every way.

He was extremely knowledgeable on which areas to concentrate on to make our house show the best. He had great communication skills and answered all of our questions. We had a showing within 2 hours of hitting the market, 13 showings the next day with multiple offers and had accepted an offer 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!

On Friday we took possession of our new house in Elbow Park!

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.

We recently listed a downtown condo with Newman & Deans at CIR Realty.

The condo is located in the 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. Sharon S.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Gord Deans on the purchase of my first condo.

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 home owner. 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!

I'd like to express just how amazing of an experience it was going through the home-buying process with Gord.

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!

It was a pleasure working with Gord to buy our first home as a family.

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.

Heather & Mike R.

We were looking for a condo in Calgary to accommodate my son’s living requirements while he attends University of Calgary.

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.

David and Leslie W.

We hired the Newman & Deans Team to help us find a home in the incredibly challenging Calgary real estate market.

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!

Kent & Tanis W.

We recently worked with Gord on the purchase of our new house.

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!

Lindsay and Jon S.

Gord Deans and Derrick Newman went above and beyond to help us in our search for a new acreage property.

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!

Lennin L. and Paula A.

I was looking to purchase a condo in Calgary with some very specific criteria.

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!

We had the absolute pleasure in working with Gord Deans and Derrick Newman while selling our home.

Throughout the entire process, both individuals acted with a high level of professionalism and ensured all of 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 in order to sell our home. Big thanks for all of the help along the way!

First and foremost, Gord is a fantastic person.

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!

Marcus & Daniela

The team of Derrick Newman & Gord Deans provided us with a tremendous home buying experience.

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.

Joe & Camille B.

Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness The Team of Newman & Deans were fabulous!

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.

Janet and Adam M.

We could not have been happier with the service we received from Gord and Derrick.

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"!

Marcin and Heather P.

We were referred to Gord and Derrick by our Mortgage Specialist after deciding to become first-time homeowners.

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".

As “empty-nesters” when we decided to down-size we contacted Gord and Derrick from CIR Realty.

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. Lynn and Joanne F.
