Derek Gilbert's Reviews & Ratings

Derek Gilbert

    • "My husband and I were nervous about selling our home, worrying about how to price it, and how long it may sit on the market. We interviewed 6 of the Denver area's top real estate agents before deciding on Derek Gilbert. We were impressed by his professionalism and ideas about home selling and buying. We were a little hesitant to go with him because he wanted to price our home $50,000 higher than any of the other agents had proposed, but he had done his research and we decide to trust him. Less than a week after listing our home we were under contract for $10,000 under asking price, which was right where Derek had said we would end up. We were thrilled with the timing and the value we got for our home. Derek and everyone on his team was friendly, professional, and provided us with excellent service. They were always available for questions or showings. It was obvious to us that they put their all into every part of selling and buying experience. "

    • Derek was by far the best Realtor I have worked with. He was very knowledgeable about the area, super responsive and was even available to us while on vacation! His staff are very helpful and wonderful to work with. We felt that we could trust him immediately, he has a lot of knowledge about how a home will re-sell and isn't afraid to let you know if it's not a good investment. We are so thankful to have worked with Derek and would recommend him to anyone buying or selling!

    • Derek, from day one exhibited the professionalism and enthusiasm it takes to realize a sale in these tough economic times takes a true professional. His no nonsense step by step approach provides the information needed to provide expertise and knowledge that stands above the rest. Derek is a forward thinker, always on the cutting edge of the real estate industry. I've known Derek for many years, his work ethic and integrity continues to impress me year after year, he has never wavered. I would highly recommend Derek for all of your professional real estate needs

    • I just want to say a few words concerning my experience with the sale of my house with Derek Gilbert. I interviewed Derek over the phone, and chose him over several other agents, due to the scope of his network, and his plans to market the house. I live out of state, yet I never felt as if my interests werent taken care of. I had several problems with the house, and Derek arranged all of the work to be done at a very reasonable price, and offered good tips on making my house stand out. In the end, through his marketing, the house sold quickly, and all of this by phone and fax. I couldn't have asked more. I would easily recommend Derek to anyone.

    • "I interviewed many realtors when needing to place my home on the market after a divorce and Derek was the only one who was honest with me about the situation my ex-husband and I found ourselves in with our home. We owed much more than the home was worth and neither he nor I could afford to keep the house on our own. Derek is very knowledgeable and explained the entire process to me. Once the decision was made to go through with the short sale after exhausting all other options, he worked around the clock to get the house sold. He and his assistant were a great help and stuck through the long process every step of the way. I would highly recommend Derek and his team to assist with your short sale needs."
