Client Recommendations

Let’s put it this way: I’ve been Realtor myself for many years plus I’m a pretty picky person, who always find something to complaint about. So Derek and his team had a pretty hard task to make us happy while selling our house. You know what? They did! Knowing this business inside out I still had no reason to complain about anything, either it’s a road sign, website presence, arranging showings, communication or anything else. Honestly, I was a little bit afraid, that being one of the top Realtors in Canada, Derek might put some pressure on us, especially because initially our asking price was a little bit high. But it wasn’t a case, there was absolutely no pressure, just helpful information, which helped us to make a right decision and led to the sale of our house. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Derek to my countless friends, even they are as picky as I am!

Derek sold our home for full asking price, $30,000 more than other agents said it would sell for, in less than a week. While Derek’s marketing plan was key to attracting prospective buyers, it was his powerful and persuasive negotiating skills that sold our home for full asking price. He made it happen!

We had previously listed our property with two other Realtors, and after careful consideration and interviews we hired Derek. Once we made the decision,we knew we were in good hands as the marketing plan from the start was vastly different, even doing a professionally edited UAV video. With the use of Derek’s in-house marketing professionals it was refreshing and definitely not the standard. As a business owner that has owned multiple car franchise dealerships, I know what it takes to get results and build a business. Even when we thought the deal was done, Derek could have easily had us sign the final conditions, but he went back and saved us another $750. This took effort and time, and not many people go to bat for clients like Derek did, without the need for personal gain. Choosing a Realtor is hard, finding one that cares about your outcome no matter the work involved is even harder. This is why I highly recommend Derek, as he will look after you.

After making the tough decision to sell my home, next came the search to find and hire an established real estate professional who would not only be an advocate in negotiating and navigating all parts of a sales transaction on my behalf but to also supply the creativity and wisdom of handling the distinctive marketing and networking tools necessary to find the right buyer. The result of my search and interviews of the top realtors at RE/MAX led me to Derek Gillette and his creative group. Knowing and understanding that the decision to list my home was not an easy one, Derek not only provided me with professional business experience but he also demonstrated conscious intention and true patience in guiding me through my many decisions, questions and concerns during the entire process from listing to sale. He was able to sell my home $60,000 above the other Realtors recommended price and delivered all that was promised and more. I cannot recommend Derek and his team of professionals enough.

My husband and I started working with Connie and the Derek Gillette Team while still living a long distance from our new desired location. Searching for a home out-of-town adds additional stressors to house hunting, which we didn’t appreciate until faced with the where’s, why’s and what if’s of purchasing our new permanent residence. Connie Hentschel assisted us every step of the way, with her professional but comfortable way that put us at ease. There was still stress to be sure but Connie made it much better with her support, sense of humour and positive approach. We’ll always appreciate her for that. When we sell – it’ll be Connie we call.

Connie, you have been the perfect real estate agent. You offered advise when we asked but allowed us, always, to form our own opinions about the properties we saw. You learned, from our reactions, what we wanted and found the perfect home for us. We are enormously grateful to you and very thankful that we found you. I don’t believe that our move to Vancouver Island could have been as joyful without your presence. Derek Gillette Realty and you in particular have made our move so much easier.
Ken Roberts
Derek Gillette is head and shoulders above any agent we have dealt with through our experience in three countries. His tack, wisdom, and good communication combine with his expert knowledge of the current market and are bolstered by his infectious enthusiasm. His methods of presentation far exceed the norm yet at no added expense, and he closes the sale with excellent negotiation skills. Derek is unique and we could recommend more highly.
