My wife and I were first-time home sellers. We sold a home we bought 5 years ago since we moved out of state. Derek Gilbert walked us through the process every step of the way. We had multiple offers on our home within a few days of listing and went under contract well above list price within 4 days! I strongly recommend Derek and his team. We will definitely be using him to purchase a home when we move back to the Denver metro area.

Great results. His team approach really helped with our tight time frame. Put me in touch also with a lender who could work quickly. I'd recommend Derek to my friends most definately.

I would highly recommend Derek to our family and friends. He made selling our house one of the most painless experiences ever and was able to negotiate more money for our house than we ever imagined. When we asked him to check on something for us, he did so professionally, quickly and pleasantly. Derek possesses that intangible quality that make people great at what they do.

Derek Gilbert and his team of professionals helped my family and I through the process of buying a new home. A colleague of mine highly recommended Derek after he helped him look for and secure a new home. I am happy he did! While still living in England we were able to start searching for a home using Derek's exclusive online service. Through this service we narrowed the selection of hundreds of homes to a desirable list. Once we arrived in the USA, Derek was ready to show us the homes on the list. He is very personable and friendly. His guidance and up to the minute updates made this a stress free and pleasant experience. He answered all our questions to our satisfaction. He was there at closing and was very instrumental in explaining the wording and purpose of some of the documents I was signing. I highly recommend The Gilbert Team! Less ... More

Derek and his staff are the Best!! I've dealt with realtors in the past and none can stand up next to Derek and his staff when it comes to honesty, dedication, knowledge and expertise. While working in Alaska, Derek put my condo in Colorado on the market and had it sold in two days. He made it a stress free experience as he and his staff kept me updated of any changes through the process. I strongly recommend Derek to anyone looking to buy or sell their home in Colorado.

We had to sell our house at short notice due to a job relocation. Derek and his team sold our house in 2 days, for above list price. Him and his team know their stuff. If you want to sell you house call him, listen to his advice and do what your told. It's well worth it.

Derek was GREAT! I have purchased 4 homes in the past 15 years and Derek was by far the most dedicated and personable. He really makes you feel comfortable with the process and makes the experience enjoyable and as stress free as possible. He was great on follow up and checking in every so often to make sure we were kept in the loop. His staff was also great and very friendly. I would recommend his services to anybody looking to buy or sell a home in the Denver metro area. Very driven and good natured! Less ... More

Almost 2 years ago my wife and I married. Each of us had our own residence and it was time for us to buy our dream house to start our new family. Derek Gilbert, and his team, helped us sell both of our houses and helped us buy a our new home. Derek navigated us through all three transactions. His team was patient and helped us through a few pit-falls that occurred during this process. He was both honest and firm with us when he needed to be, like when explaining the crazy ?sellers market? that we were unprepared for. Derek helped us get top dollar on our two sales, and secured a home for a great price that we will love living in for the next 20 plus years. Thank you Derek, and your incredibly talented team. We will recommend you to friends and family. Less ... More

Your review helps others decide on the right agent for them. Please tell others why you recommend this agent. We selected Derek as our listing broker after interviewing several agents. He impressed us with his knowledge of the local market and proven marketing strategies. His efforts provided quick results and we were able to sell our home, for above asking price in less than one week. Derek and his team are true professionals and all aspects of our experience were excellent.

We live in California and were ready to sell our him in Colorado when the market rebounded. Even though we were a thousand miles away the process was as simple as if we were in town. Derek and his team were ready as soon as we decided to sell and helped us find contractors to address issues. His team was also available to answer questions and put us at ease. We were referred to Derek through the Dave Ramsey ELP program and I can say that this team personifies the integrity this program espouses.

Derek had my house under contract the day after it was listed. He kept me informed of what was going on every step of the way and called me back in a very timely manner if I left I message for him. I recommend him to all my friends in the Denver area. I've bought and sold several homes in my life and have never found a realtor as honest, skillful and responsive as Derek.

Derek was truly a remarkable find. I have such limited knowledge when it comes to real estate. He guided me through the process, dealt with a demanding buyer and fulfilled all my expectations. I can't say enough about the expertise of Derek and his staff. I sold my home in 3 days for full asking price. We will always highly recommend Derek and his team.

Derek and his team were excellent to work with in both selling and buying a home. Much has changed (for the worse) since the last time we were in the RE market 8 years ago, and Derek helped us get through it with a minimum of hair pulling and tears. He had an excellent strategy using internet and alternative marketing channels to create demand leading up to our one and only open house. We had three offers slightly over list, and the house was sold within three days! Derek's team were available and responsive to our many questions. Derek is an excellent agent to work with--straightforward, honest, knows the market and the technology, AND he is cheerful and enthusiastic. Great to have that energy going for you when dealing with the details of the transactions. Highly Recommended! Less ... More

We had an excellent experience with Derek Gilbert and his team. We knew it was going to be a difficult transaction from the start; the seller was unresponsive and selling realtor was nearly impossible to reach. But Derek and his team stuck with us to get through the frustrating times and now we live in our dream home!

Derek Gilbert is Top Shelf. Great Realtor, Person, Professional, and his team did a great job for our family. We purchased a house and sold a house using Derek Gilbert's Team in August of 2013. He was consistently patient as we viewed multiple homes before he found our dream home. After we found our dream home we put our house up on the market. Due to Derek's Game Plan we had 5 offers in the 7 days our home was on the market. Every offer was over list or at list price. He found us our dream home and sold our existing house for more than list. What more can you ask of an agent. Great Work Derek Gilbert Team. Grateful Clients, Matt and Sara Nawrocki and family.

I interview 5 top Realtors and chose Derek because of his outstanding marketing practices and wide exposure for the home. The professional staging that is included when he lists a home sealed the deal. The photography and video of the home was also special and made our home look even more beautiful and shiny. It was a great experience from start to finish. I am now using Derek to help us find a new home. I highly recommend Derek to anyone looking to buy or sell. He takes time to find out about you and what you want and it's nice to work with an honest christian dedicated to the community and his family. Less ... More

Derek and his assistant, Shannon, were impressively responsive throughout the entire process of selling our home, including the time during which we thought we might not sell it. Throughout inevitable glitches, Derek and Shannon came through every time and made us feel like they were working for us (which they were, but not every agent remembers that!). I totally recommend their services wholeheartedly, and I would absolutely use them again for my next home purchase or sale. Oh, and the listing process is second to none - photos, video, professional staging advice all included in their services. Our house sold for $15k above asking price because it looked amazing.

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 and his team were on the ball from the first moment that I contacted them. I needed to close on a house QUICKLY and he made it happen by immediately getting me set up on their house-looking database and getting me out looking at houses that weekend. I always felt like I was their sole client and Derek's personal history as both a realtor and an investor helped to find a home that my family would love and also be a good investment. Most importantly, I believe that Derek is incredibly helpful in at he tells you when something is outside his expertise. He'll give you his opinion, but immediately follows it by telling you that it may be outside his body of knowledge. ANY realtor can know a lot about real estate, but they can sure get you into trouble when they start speaking with authority about things that are outside their expertise. Derek is not one of those realtors and his humility allows him to be confident in what he does know (and he knows a lot!), but also humble enough to say what he doesn't know. Besides, he's just a cool guy who anyone would want to be their friend, so it makes the whole process personable and comfortable! I'm glad to be able to write a review for him and to move into our new home! Less ... More

Derek did a great job for us in selling our home. Derek gave us excellent advice as we prepared to list our home. Once on the market, Derek developed an effective marketing plan and strategy which helped us to sell our home with multiple offers on the first day. I highly recommend Derek to buy or sell a home!

My experience with Derek was a great one. Between Derek and Kya (his assistant), my husband and I were able to find our home within two months of the expiration of our apartment lease. Derek explained the process of buying a house and gave us the tools to do our research, which in the end, allowed our process to go smoothly and without any issues. Kya was helpful, patience, and wonderful to work with. She understood what we were looking for and actually found the house that we got. It was in a different area, but had everything we were looking for, plus several bonuses. I would differently recommend Derek to anyone who is looking for a house. Derek and Kya make a great team and I was very satisfied with my experience. Less ... More
