Absolutely the best realtors you can find. They truly embrace the idea that they are there to represent you and your best interest. They will explain well when you need it and point out things that you would otherwise miss. They actually made house buying fun with their great senses of humor and fun attitudes.
We were first time home buyers and we couldn't have had a better team than Mark and Mickie Newman. We asked a million questions, looked at a ton of houses and sent them tons of emails and they were always happy to help. You can tell they really know their stuff and they were always able to put us at ease when we got nervous about the process. They are very genuine and I felt like we became friends by the end of the process. Highly recommend!
When we decided to move out of state to AZ, my first instinct was to check reviews for a good Realtor in the area. I called and talked with a few Realtors on the phone first before deciding on meeting with Mark in person. From our first phone call, I was instantly at ease with him. He answered the phone right away despite it being past normal business hours. He was very calm, non-pushy and knowledgeable about the area. At our first meeting, he did a tour of Gilbert as we proceeded to see some of the prospective homes. It was a wonderful tour. I almost felt like I was on a historic guided tour of the city. As we coursed through the home buying process, he was always patient and allowed us to come to decisions on our own, never pushing us in one direction or another. I really appreciated his demeanor with us, being more like a trusted consultant than a pushy salesperson. He spent quite a bit of time with us and showed us a lot of homes. When we settled on a new build, we were able to work with his wife, Mickie, who was a pleasure to work with as well. She was a wealth of knowledge as we worked through the new construction process. She was very helpful with things like selecting options, budgeting for landscaping, window coverings and making recommendations on vendors. They are a fantastic team! We are so happy that we were able to work with Mark and Mickie! Moving out of state, there are quite a bit of unknowns. Having them by our side as we made the move really put us at ease, made the process less stressful and more enjoyable! If you are looking to buy or sell a home, I would highly recommend Newman Realty. They were responsive, knowledgeable, kind, hard-working and honest people. You won't be disappointed!
We had the pleasure to work with Mark on the sale of our Gilbert home in July 2018. The process was quick and efficient. Mark was very responsive and knowledgeable. We were very happy with the service and would highly recommend him.
Extra special thank you to Mark on the sale of our condo in Phoenix! He represented us on the purchase 9 years ago and now on the sale. Professional, detailed in every area and helped us through the process. 5-star service, Top Realtor and a great friend! Canadian Snowbirds, Investors, and homeowners Newman Realty will help you with all your Real Estate needs. Thanks Mark & Mickie
We highly recommend Newman Realty!
My husband and I were moving from Seattle to Phoenix. We had one week to find and purchase a home in the six largest city in the US AND we had never been there! I had done my research on the areas prior to arriving and had lost two homes because of lag response time by two different local realtors so I was pretty frustrated by the time I met Mark. Mark came to us through a friend's recommendation and I was so grateful because he was understanding, kind, and very patient with us. Thanks to Mark's quick response and expert negotiating skills we ended up with a beautiful and perfect home. I can't praise these two enough and we are so happy in our new home! Not only are they great realtors but we consider them friends! Thank you, Mark and Mickie!! You guys are the best!
Mark and Mickie are AMAZING. My boyfriend and I were relocating from out of state (California) and Mark dedicated his entire weekend to us to house hunt. He took us around half of Maricopa County one Saturday to look at houses even though he thought some of the areas weren't the best fit for us, but made a point to show us every house we asked for so that we could see for ourselves and decide on the perfect area for us. The next day he took us to all of our favorite houses in the area we had decided was our best fit. We looked at over 20 houses in one weekend and fell in love with the first house on Sunday! Mark gave us a ton of insight on the area which really helped us choose the best location since we were coming from out of town. He literally seems to know everything about the Gilbert/Chandler/Mesa/Tempe area and he answered every single one of our questions in the most objective way possible so that we had all the information we needed to make a decision on the perfect location and home. It's incredible how much expertise he has in the home buying process, the area, home remodeling (from letting us know which pool pump was best to approximately how much a new A/C would be)... literally everything about houses, this man knew. Mickie came with us on Sunday and was such an amazing cheerleader when we decided on the house we loved and got so excited with us when we were envisioning our life in that house. Mark and Mickie felt like old friends by the end of the weekend.
We ended up dealing with a less than ideal seller's agent and Mark made things as painless as possible and we were able to close 30 days after the date we put in the offer.
Mark has been incredible even after closing, checking in to make sure the house is coming along well and offering referrals when I ask him for a recommendation (this guy knows EVERYONE). So far I have used several of his recommendations and they have all been as professional, experienced and competent as Mark. This was my first home purchase and I cannot imagine using any other realtor in AZ in the future.
If you’re looking to BUY or SELL, Mark & Mickie Newman is your team! Their knowledge of the Real Estate market will get you top dollar for your home, and they’re negotiating skills will find you the best deal when purchasing! So whether you want to Buy, Sell, or Invest in Real Estate call the Newman Team!
I worked with Mark as an out-of-state buyer. Therefore I needed a realtor with local knowledge that could represent me in my absence. I found Mark to be extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and resourceful. I would recommend him highly to anyone needing a realtor in the Gilbert region of Arizona.
I would highly recommend Newman Realty for all of your real estate needs. I built a new construction home with Fulton Homes in Gilbert. As a first time homeowner and traveling back and forth from out of state, I can’t imagine trying to do this on my own. I knew that Mark and Mickie were looking out for my best interest and helped me navigate the process every step of the way. They helped me negotiate the best value and incentives for my purchase, They helped me create a design center budget and went with me on the appointment. They counseled me on what upgrades, lot placement and options would be important to consider for future value & when I do decide to sell the home. They advised me to get a home inspection before I closed to check out the things I could not see roof, attic, plumbing electrical etc. to ensure that anything that needed to be added to the final walkthrough punch list would be addressed. I loved having buyer representation when building a new construction home and would recommend the Newman Team to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Thank you Newman Realty for everything!
If we could give them a million stars we would. As first-time homebuyers, we couldn't have been more nervous and clueless about where to start the home buying process. We read great reviews on Newman Realty, so we figured we'd set up a meeting to see if we wanted to pursue working with them to find our home. Mark was extremely personable, down to earth, and genuinely interested in what we were looking for. We had what seemed like a thousand questions for him, and he had a comforting answer for all of them and then some. After that meeting, we didn't even consider meeting with any other realtor to start the process! Mark mentioned that communication with his clients was one of the most important things to him, and he stuck to that 100% of the time. He is an extremely busy guy, but honestly, he was so communicative and flexible that he made us feel like we were the only clients he was working with. He gave us his honest opinion on things without being pushy or sales-y whatsoever. It was crystal clear that he had nothing but our best interest in mind.
We found our perfect, life-changing first home, and it definitely would not have been possible without the Newmans! We worked with Mickie throughout the process as well, and she is just as fantastic. Not only are they true professionals and extremely knowledgeable about the industry/area, but they are also genuinely WONDERFUL people - which, in our opinion, is just as important. Truly cannot say enough great things about them. We look forward to keeping in touch with them as friends and having them help us with any real estate needs later in life as well :)
We are so thankful to have worked with Newman Realty. We lived in the Gilbert area over 20 years but decided to retire closer to family in the Midwest. We had the opportunity to work with Mark, his knowledge of the business and the Gilbert area was instrumental in a smooth process to sell our home. We could not have scripted a more orderly process. He gave great advice to prepare the house for sale and was available for every question, concern, and need we encountered. Mark was with us every step from listing to closing. Thanks for everything Newman Realty!!!
This review is loooong overdue, but it's a pleasure to write and share with anyone seeking real state services in the Gilbert area.
We were first time homebuyers, moving into AZ from out of state and chose Newman Realty based on the great Yelp reviews.
My wife called Mark, unsure of what questions to ask or where to start and Mark provided everything we needed to make this transition smooth and stress-free (considering moving is not stress-free at all, right?)!
Mark is not only incredibly knowledgeable with the city and the market, but he became a friend/mentor and helped us to go in the right direction for what was the best decision for us now as a family and what makes the most sense for the future. Mark was patient, explained what we needed for AZ and walked us through the buying process with only 2 visits to scout for houses. Not once did he make us feel pressured, hurried or uninformed. Quite the contrary; he made us comfortable, taught us, guided us but gave us space to make decisions and process any information as necessary at our speed.
Mark and his wife Mickey are a top-notch team and we whole-heartedly recommend Newman Realty to anyone needing real estate services. We will absolutely use them when we need to buy again or sell our current home.
I would highly recommend anyone I know to work with Mark during their sale or purchase of a home. He takes pride in providing the best experience and is truly one of the most knowledgeable people I know in the market. He does all the homework for you and is always on top of things. I have had the privilege of working with Mark for about 7 years and he continues to show the highest level of professionalism and experience with every deal!
I’ve had the opportunity to have some close friends use Mark’s services and myself as well. He helped my friends find the perfect home that they absolutely love and made the process enjoyable. Mickie helped my wife and I️ into a new home. Her input and advice helped us greatly navigate the new build process. Completely impressed with their team and how they conduct business. He has many years experience and operates with the utmost integrity. He also is completely immersed in the community and really cares about Gilbert. It helps to have a realtor who really understands the community that people are moving to. Highly recommend them!
Mark Newman of Newman Realty is the ultimate professional realtor. He knows the business and the community, and I felt he always had my best interests at heart. I had great assurance that we were finding the right home for my family because of his patience and expertise. I highly recommend Mark and his team!!
My husband and I bought our home with the help from Mark and Mickie. We looked at multiple homes and found the perfect home for us without settling for something that wasn't right. Mark and Mickie paid close attention to all the details of homes and ensured we found the home that had everything we wanted. Mark and Mickie helped us navigate the buying process and were there for us until we got our keys. We highly recommend to anyone!
If we could give Newman Realty a 10-star review we would. Mark and Mickie are consummate professionals. Their knowledge, insight, partnership, support and keen ability to hyper-focus on our goals resulted in our dream coming true. We love our new home and can't express our gratitude enough. Thank you Newman Realty for your kindness and professionalism - you are the best!
We are extremely happy with the service we received from Mark and his team at Newman Realty. We moved here from out of state, knowing nothing about the area. Mark took a thorough inventory of our wish list - which was pretty long. After only two days of touring houses, we found our perfect home. He walked us through some rough patches with the seller and lending company. On the close of escrow day, he went to the extra trouble of finding out which mailbox was ours so we wouldn't have to try our key in the whole mailbox stand. You will be in good hands with Mark, Mickie, and Katie. They are simply the best.
We found Mark on yelp and based on the reviews we expected a lot from him and he delivered!! Walked us through the entire process and since we don’t know anyone here he has been so helpful in recommending great folks to help us along the way. He was invaluable to us and I am certain we would not have our wonderful house without his guidance. What I really appreciated was Marks willingness to let us set the pace..never any pressure and most of all offered advice any time we asked. I would highly recommend Mark and Mickie and I will never use anyone but Newman Realty for any real estate needs!
We are brand new to Arizona and we don't know anyone here. We started our home search about 2 months after moving here. I found Mark on Yelp and read the reviews. This prompted a meeting where Mark explained his house hunting philosophy and his commitment to making sure we were happy with the house we chose. I was immediately impressed with Marks knowledge and straightforwardness. Since we knew no one we relied on him for everything. He was so thorough in his recommendations but more important to me was that he explained his reasoning behind everything. It was really nice to be given the information behind his thoughts. We dragged Mark around for what felt like every house for sale in Gilbert. Mark never rushed us and continued to tell us when it's 'the one' you'll know. We nearly made an offer on 2 other houses and somehow Mark knew he wasn't seeing the response most people have when finding the right house. The house we decided on was the last of the 5 houses we saw that afternoon. We walked in, looked around and we just knew. It had been on the market for less than a day and already had an offer. Mark was critical in helping us with a strategy to get this house. He helped us with an amazing guy for an appraisal, a wonderful mortgage broker, and the sellers accepted our offer. Mark was amazing throughout the entire process. Most importantly he advocated for us at every turn. I really felt like we were more important to him than the money. That doesn't happen much these days. He was so understanding of our fears and helped me calm down when I was really stressing during the process. When I bought my last house I didn't use a realtor and in hindsight based on this experience, not having a great realtor was a huge mistake. I won't ever buy or sell a home in Arizona without Mark. We're customers for life and I would recommend Mark to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home. We just closed on our house 2 days ago. Mark and Mickie exceeded every expectation we had. BEST REALTOR EVER!!!
Mickie and Mark were both great! They never made us feel rushed through the process it ran as smooth as possible. For first time home buyers, they explained how everything was going to run. They didn't mind meeting us anywhere at any time. I would definitely recommend the Newman Realty to family/friends. If you go with them they won't treat you as clients they will treat you like family.
Mark is fantastic! He is extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the Gilbert area. Even though my wife and I were moving all the way from Michigan, he was very accommodating and attentive. He even slugged it out house hunting in record-breaking heat and we ended up with the house of our dreams. You couldn't ask for a better real estate agent!
My Wife and I decided to finally get out of New York, after visiting Arizona for several years we decided that we would make it our home. Yes, we know its hot but it sure beats shoveling 36" of snow, frequent gray skies and high taxes.
I looked on yelp and found Mark of Newman Realty. Based on the reviews we decided to take a chance, and are we ever glad we did. He was awesome. Took the time to explain the local real estate market as well as provided priceless details on the area. Due to a limited travel schedule, we saw 18 houses in two days. Mark was very polite, patient, and determined to find us the right home.
Once we found our home he was involved in every stage of the transaction and provided guidance the entire way. If you are looking for a professional realtor that is knowledgeable, easy to work with and gets the job done, Newman Realty is the place to call. Take it from a skeptical New Yorker, Newman Realty is a safe bet for sure.
Mark, we can't say it enough, Thank You!!!!!! We consider you our first friend in Az
Mark and Mickie both have the patience of angels!! We were rather picky looking for our second house, and we saw A LOT of houses. Both Mark and Mickie would always tell us honestly what they liked and didn't like with houses when we asked their opinions, they never seemed like they were trying to sway us unless the house had a major issue, and they were a pleasure to work with throughout every house we visited.
The went above and beyond for us on multiple occasions and went out of their way to help us on move-in day. We had a nasty surprise waiting for Mark the day we got our keys. There was a slight leak with our fridge (old water filter, easily fixed) and he had Mickie come to the house with towels even before he told us about the issue. He knew we were stressed about moving and knew we wouldn't have towels with us yet, so they went above and beyond to help solve the problem before we even knew it was a problem. To me, this truly shows the kind of people Mark and Mickie both are!
I would HIGHLY recommend both Mark and Mickie for all of your house needs!
Very knowledgeable, honest and professional. They know the Gilbert/Queen Creek/San Tan area very well. Mark and Mickie Newman operate a very professional organization and they will serve you well. I have recommended many clients to them.
I found Mark here on Yelp, and we couldn't be more thankful that we did! Mark brought us multiple offers and sold our Gilbert home quickly and at an excellent price! His professionalism is unmatched, as well as his responsiveness If you're looking for a real estate team that has a CAN DO attitude, NEWMAN REALTY is the place to go!
I can't say enough good things about Mark and the level of service he provided to me and my husband! Mark was recommended to us and upon reaching out to him, I knew I would enjoy working with him. He was quick, professional, knowledgeable AND was able to accommodate a last minute request from us. We wanted to fly out to AZ for a day and on that day, see as many houses as we could. With just a few days notice, he was able to make time for us. He was even generous enough to pick us up at our hotel and drive us around from house to house, which in my opinion, really proved that he was someone who goes above and beyond for the people he works with!
Once we found the house we liked, Mark made it very easy for a young couple like us to understand every step of the house buying process. We were able to call, text, and email him and ALWAYS received a timely response. No matter how many times we bugged him!
All in all, we couldn't be happier with Mark. Before connecting with him, our main concern was finding someone who put OUR best interests first and that wouldn't take advantage of us. Mark not only put our best interests first but also was genuine and it was obvious he TRULY cared about making us happy. For us, that meant the world. I would recommend him time and time again!
I had 3 different agents before finding Mark and was very discouraged by my experience with the other agents. I couldn't be happier with his work! He was honest, extremely helpful, very available, plus no big ego, which was refreshing. I had looked at over 50 houses when I found Mark. We were able to find the right one pretty quickly and he made the process painless and easy to understand as a first-time buyer. He gave great advice and negotiated well.
Some friends of ours referred my fiancée and me to Mark and we are both so thankful that we found him! As first-time homebuyers, we were very serious about finding a realtor who had our best interests at heart and now that we have closed on our dream home I can say that Mark’s services are truly invaluable.
I received a very professional and friendly reply from Mark Newman within hours of my initial email and he suggested that we meet for coffee to talk about our real estate needs. I had initially thought that this meeting would last 20 min or so, but between getting to know one another and talking about houses it lasted well over an hour (and it went by very quickly because my fiancée and I had the best time). Based on Mark’s recommendations, we learned quite a bit and (thankfully) ruled out some areas of the city/housing developments that we were previously considering (Mark revealed information to us that the salespeople at the new developments did not; in one case, there was an approx. $10,000 tax we would not have known about until after purchasing the home unless we really read the fine print). During this meeting, we were instantly impressed by Mark’s high level of expertise, passion, and genuine interest in helping us to achieve our dreams.
It was a very easy choice to select Newman Realty for our home search, and less than a week later while browsing Newman Realty’s web portal I discovered a great house that had been just been listed (less than an hour old) and it happened to be right in our price range and right where we wanted to live (Gilbert). I called Mark (who, as always, made the time to make an appointment work) and toured the house with my fiancée. Even though this was the first home we looked at, we knew 100% that it was exactly what we want. Mark agreed and moved quickly to assist us in filling out the paperwork and we put an offer in. The next day, I Mark called and I learned that my offer was nearly accepted but my loan officer was not returning calls; if Mark hadn’t been proactive, we would have lost the house but we were able to close the deal.
Throughout the next several weeks, Mark guided us through the home buying process in a very proactive and patient way, which was fantastic considering the fact that I called him several times without warning with questions that he always took the time to answer.
All in all, we ended up closing more than a week early and we recommend Mark Newman Realty 100%; five stars on Yelp! isn’t nearly fair enough (we give him fifty stars). If you are looking for a realtor who will put your interests and well-being above all else AND who will make the home buying process both fun and not stressful, this is your man.
We came to find Mark and Newman Realty as a recommendation from friends and were nervous to look for our very first house. Mark was kind enough to meet us for a consultation and talk us through the basics as well as work with us on schedule (my fiancé is a pilot), explain the process and help us with our endless questions. We didn't have time constraints on looking but he listened diligently to our wish list and worked hard to find us what we wanted. Within a week of meeting with him, listings came flowing into our inbox, he answered ALL of our ridiculous questions and helped us to narrow our search. We finally found a house we loved, on a Thursday afternoon, the day the listing became available and Mark rearranged his schedule to make us, wait for it, THE FIRST people to see the house. We were ecstatic to see the house and knew within moments that it was our dream home. Mark was so helpful and patient as we walked through the house, helping us look in every nook and cranny, showing us doors we were too excited to see, etc.
While it was probably not ideal that we fell in love with the first house in case we never got to see what else was out there, Mark was supportive and helped us get everything promptly sent in and well... we were accepted!
Mark was supportive, responsive and diligent. He answered emails, phone calls, connected all the dots and worked hard to make sure we got the best house ever (I'm biased). He did his part to ensure that everything on our end was easy as could be and the day I picked up the keys, I even conned him into helping me program the sprinkler system!
There is something to be said for working with someone who cares more about the people they are working with than just "doing business" -- I would recommend Mark and his team to anyone looking for a realtor who actually listens to what you're looking for and cares! Thank you to Mark for helping us find our dream home - I should have written this 2 weeks ago but we have been too busy doing work on the house!
I wish there were 10 stars in that rating! Newman Realty is the rock star of realty firms. I closed on my new home today and just now walked away with the keys. Mark Newman and Frank Golda are the ultimate professionals. They showed me over 50 homes, answered every single question I had, and always had my best interests in mind. When I would apologize for asking to see just a few more houses, they would just smile and say "that's what we do!" They were so accommodating and made this process fun! Can't say enough about these guys! They will not steer you wrong and will help you get exactly what you want. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!
My husband and I live in the northeast so trying to find a home in the Phoenix area was a daunting task from such a great distance. We were referred to Newman Realty and could not be happier! They were extremely helpful and have kept in constant contact with us. Mickie Newman has been wonderful throughout this process and has been more than a realtor as she has actually become a friend. We decided to build a home and with keeping our budget in mind, Mickie did all of the legwork for us by visiting new home communities before we would come to visit. This saved us so much time on our visits. When a builder tells you how fortunate you are to have Mickie representing you, you know you made the right choice.
We bought and sold our house through Mark in the last two years. It was our very first home purchase and home sale and Mark was there to help every step of the way.
With our home purchase, he helped us negotiate a great deal and close very quickly.
Two years later it was time to sell and Mark helped us coordinate tons of showings while we still lived in the house. We accepted an offer after just 3 weeks. That buyer's financing fell through just days before my husband and I moved out of the country! But we were confident leaving our house in Mark's hands. Sure enough, we were able to accept another offer one week later and he helped us close on the sale while we were abroad.
Mark and his wife are friendly, attentive and really just great people. I'd recommend Newman Realty to anyone!
The beautiful home I raised my children in closed today and I am excited to begin a new journey. I spent six hours in the design center yesterday creating an amazing home to spend the second half of my life in!
I have to give a big shout out to my realtor for the absolutely smooth transition. I have known Mark Newman of Newman Realty almost seven years and his ethics and standard of commitment to his customers has not wavered.
Mark is knowledgeable and was always available to answer a question. He walks you through the process, keeps you informed and provides excellent representation.
I highly recommend Mark and the Newman team for the sale or purchase of your next home. His beautiful wife Mickie L. Newman is representing me in the in the purchase of my new home. Stay tuned.....!!
Mark recently helped me buy my home in Chandler, AZ (closed July 2016). I was planning to work directly with the listing agent, but I'm so glad I decided to work with Mark instead. He was gracious and professional through the whole process, going above and beyond by being available on short notice, always getting back to me quickly, and making amazing recommendations on a home inspector and title agency. Being in the real estate industry (though out of state) and having worked with many agents before, I can say with certainty that Mark is one of the best. I look forward to working with him again in the future and would highly recommend his services to anyone thinking of buying in the Phoenix-Gilbert-Chandler area.
I have just closed on the sale of a home listed by Mark and his professionalism showed every step of the way. One of my biggest pet peeves is real estate agents that don't bother to hire professional photographers when listing a home. My listing was well written and the photos were of very good quality.
This sale had a few "bumps in the road" and Mark handled everything like a true pro and went above and beyond to make sure the sale went through. He always made sure I was kept up to date every step of the way.
I honestly cannot say enough good things about Mark. Best real estate agent I have ever used.
How to you buy a house when you do not know what you are even looking for? You work with Newman Realty! I decided to move to the Phoenix area from out of state and needed to find a realtor with local knowledge of Gilbert who understood my needs and could help me solidify what exactly I was looking for. Working with Mark Newman was extremely easy. Mark helped identify my needs based on my loose ideas and allowed me to focus the search down to a few key areas. When looking at homes, Mark was able to point out things I might not have normally thought or regarding long-term living in a home. The whole staff at Newman Realty helped me ensure that I bought the home is one I would love. With Newman Realty you won't just get a Realtor for your house, you'll get a partner who will go those extra steps to help you get your own dream home.
Newman Realty is the best! My husband and I have bought/sold 9 properties in 40 years. Mark is one of the most knowledgeable and dependable realtors we have ever worked with. He always responds in a timely manner. He knows more about Gilbert than anyone I know. Patient, available, and reliable!
We will continue to work with Mark.
Terry & Cat
I had a fantastic experience with Mark and would recommend him to anyone. He's extremely knowledgeable about the Gilbert area which was my main reason for going with him, supported by all the great reviews here on Yelp.
He never made me feel like a pest when I'd text him listings I wanted to see. And he's about as responsive as you can get. He'll tell you that he's more likely to talk you out of a house than into one. I definitely found that to be true. When I finally found the place I knew I wanted, there were complications, but he managed to work everything out. I can't thank him enough.
Do yourself a favor and give Mark a call.
As a first time home buyer making the decision to purchase was a huge decision, an extremely scary, nerve-racking decision. We never expected to feel so comfortable in the process. Mark and Mickie made us feel like family. We were 100% confident that our best interest was their number one priority. They were extremely understanding of what we were looking for and we never felt pressured to settle for anything less. The Newman realty crew made us feel comfortable during the entire process; little did we know finding the home was the easy part. The 30-45 days to follow were the most unsettling, and Mark went above and beyond to keep in constant contact. I was reassured 100% of the way. I could not be more pleased with my home buying experience. Wonderful, kind, & caring people.
Mark recently helped my husband and I buy our first home. He was helpful, knowledgeable, and hands-on. Through the entire process, we felt like we had someone who really cared about our needs on our side. As a result, our home buying process was very smooth and pleasant. We really couldn't ask for a better realtor than Mark. We will be working with him for any of our future needs and recommend him highly.
We are confident with our decision in choosing Mark as our realtor. This was our first home and he was extremely patient in walking us through every step of the way. We had some issues at first with the mortgage process itself but he was patient through that as well. When we were having issues with the first mortgage company, he recommended a great company who I wish we had gone through from the beginning. We bid on a home we really wanted and when things started to look down, he fought to make sure we got the home we wanted. We love our new home! Thank you, Mark and team!
Mark was an exceptional realtor for me and my family. He was very helpful, attentive, thorough and was always there to answer questions along the way. He was able to get a quick turnaround on my house, and we couldn't recommend him more!
From the initial email with Mark, I knew he was going to be great. When we met with him, he exceeded our expectations to sell our home and we knew immediately that he was the one to do so. Mark is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market and very professional. We had to move quickly due to a career change so having to think about moving across the country is stressful enough! We didn't worry about a thing with Mark. He sold our house in less than three weeks! We completely trusted him with everything. Mickie at Newman Realty was wonderful too! They go above and beyond. We couldn't be happier. Do not hesitate to contact them for your real estate needs!
A few months ago we decided to sell our $500K home in Chandler and buy-up into a fully custom home in an upscale local community. A big deal --
After several very bad experiences with realtors over the past 20 years, I was really going to do my homework this time and NOT use a friend of a friend, etc. After days of searching and triple checking reviews on Yelp, Zillow, etc. Mark made it to the top of my "call" list.
After interviewing the cream of the crop, Mark was our guy -- one conversation on the phone and I knew he was the one. And OMG did he EXCEED our expectations.
- always got back to us in minutes - every time!
- was brutally honest about properties...he discouraged us from some homes due to issues with them...he sincerely wanted us to be delighted with our new home and repeatedly said that we should take our time and wait for the "right" home.
- his knowledge of real estate contract law was extremely helpful
- his negotiations skills were excellent when we wanted to get the new home price down
- perhaps best of all, he sold our home in 30 days - and this was due to some majorly aggressive marketing - beautiful color packets for open houses, refreshments, balloons, signs everywhere...and he gave us candid direction on how to best stage our home - huge difference!
He even cleaned the pool when a storm came through the night before.
- I could go on and on...but best of all, he and Mickie are truly wonderful people.
As a side note, he also sold my friend's son's home in 30 days last month!
We just relocated our family from Southern California to Gilbert AZ. Needing a realtor, did some research and came upon Mark Newman's website. Really liked his principle of being an advocate for the community and his clients. Once contacting him and communicating our requirements he quickly started the process of lining up property for us to view. As the trip from CA to AZ is fairly long, he maximized our visits and utilized virtual channels (photos, specs, email, etc) to make things easier and efficient.
Mark is very knowledgeable of the Gilbert/Phoenix area and the end to end process of real estate transactions. He advised us throughout the process, making sure our best interest in mind and being very transparent. His calm, professional, and honest approach worked well for both my wife and myself.
I would highly recommend Mark for any of your real estate needs.
We were first time home buyers on RedFin and they matched us with Mark Newman.
We were understandably wary of finding an agent on a website but all the fears and worry went away once we started the actual process of putting in an offer on a house. Unfortunately, our first offer did not follow through but he remained patient with us.
A few tours and houses later we found the one and he was on top of everything. From start to finish he was always in contact with us, always reassuring us of what is going on.
They say like a good neighbor, State Farm is there. In the realty world, that good neighbor is Mark Newman! Our deal almost went south (not on our end) and he saved the day literally.
We absolutely loved working with him and would recommend him to anyone who's looking to purchase or sell their home. We would definitely use him again in the future!
Thanks a million again Mark we are so happy to have our first time (home buying experience) be with you. :)
Mark was superb. I contacted him while living abroad and he was proactive in availing his services during my impending trip to Phoenix area. When my family and I arrived, there was a very narrow window of dates that we would be available to look at houses. Mark took the time and showed us places all over town. He did this even though he lived 70 miles from where I was staying and even made an extra trip out to the house I had chosen to let me in to look around again.
Mark was trustworthy, responsive and communicative. He was extremely knowledgeable of the East Valley (I am sure other areas too). If we need find ourselves needing real estate in the future, he will be our “go to” person. We can honestly say that, of all the realtors we have ever engaged in various regions of the country, that Mark is the cream of the crop.

We just closed on our first home and are so happy to have worked with Mark! What could have become a very frustrating and discouraging experience was actually enjoyable and pleasant due to Mark’s professionalism and down-to-earth personality. It was greatly apparent that Mark wanted us to buy a house we loved rather than rushing us through the process. We visited MANY properties, and he never put pressure on us to submit an offer; rather, he always encouraged us to keep looking until we found a good fit. Mark was also very prompt in responding to our calls and emails. His knowledge, sense of humor, and superior customer service left us extremely pleased with our home-buying experience. I would recommend working with Mark in a heartbeat!
Mark was thorough and patient with us and our needs for specific types of space- not only for a home, but for a home based business as well. He made the home buying process fun and easy despite a difficult market. He was always positive and encouraging. He kept his opinions to a minimum until asked, always looking for possibilities. He never pushed for a sale, his goal was to help us find the perfect property for our needs.
I enjoyed working with Mark. There was never any pressure to buy but helpful advice on things to consider and extremely helpful in the follow through of the complete process up and including the signing and closing. Also follow up to see if everything was going fine and to let him know if he could be of any further help. The best experience I have had purchasing or selling a home.

I would recommend Mark Newman to anyone buying or selling a home. He is proactive, available and extremely hard working and knowledgeable. He has helped us buy 2 homes and sell our last home in the last 3 years and will always go the extra mile. If I could give him a grade it would be an A plus!
He is the best! Fantastic and made the entire process easy! I will be referring all my colleagues and friends to Mark. What a wonderful experience. He is professional and uses newest technology during photos and videos for the property. 10/10 rating!
We have known and worked with Mark for years. He was great with this transaction. Stayed in touch with us all the way. Gave us both sides of issues so we could make informed decisions. Great agent.
Mark Newman is a true professional; he not only met our expectations but far exceeded them. He took command and helped us when others were not willing or were not capable.
Mark is the consummate professional and adds significant insight into the local real estate environment. He does take the time to ensure all issues are handled and deal with in the best way possible.
Mark is an outstanding real estate agent – the best I have ever worked with. He is professional, knowledgeable and very proactive. I always felt that he had everything under control and worked closely with my mortgage company and title agency through the entire home purchase process.
I was a first time buyer and Mark walked me through the whole process. He is a very good listener and was proactive during the entire process.
Moved to Arizona from California and Mark was extremely helpful. He has been there for my husband and I every step of the way. From the very beginning, he sent us a list of builders to look at that fit our needs. He really listens to what you have to say and doesn't try to show you things you won't be interested in. He keeps on top of the construction better than I do and if any problems occur he is in your corner trying to get things resolved as quickly and smoothly as possible. I've already referred my brother and father to him and should I ever choose to move again I will be seeking out his help.
Working with Mark, we just closed on a house this week. I've bought and sold a few houses and have worked with some good Realtors in the past but Mark is by far the best agent I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Through the entire process Mark was very attentive to our needs and kept us informed on the status of everything every step of the way. Mark definitely knows his business and really helped us in our home buying decision. He never made us feel rushed and there was never any pressure to make a purchase decision. If I could give him a 6 star rating I would.
Mark is simply a wonderful, caring, honest and true person. We definitely recommend him to anyone we know who is looking to sell or buy a home!
If you are looking for an exceptional Realtor who will go the extra mile to find you the perfect home, look no further! Mark's honesty and expertise in the industry gives every client he works with an added advantage when purchasing a home. Thank you Mark for being AWESOME!!
Mark is a great communicator and listens intently to his customers.
Working with Mark Newman takes the hassle and concern out of purchasing a home. He is knowledgeable, experienced and really goes above and beyond to ensure his customers are taken care of. You can tell he really loves what he does. There is no one else I would recommend!

Mark was great at walking us through the process of purchasing a home in Queen Creek. He kept in touch with us and explained each process that was going to take place. Every time we sent him an email, he was quick to answer. He was very patient as we looked at properties. If I was going to buy or sell another house I would definitely call him.
We did some internet searching trying to find a Realtor who was especially familiar with the Gilbert / Chandler / Queen Creek area. We interacted with several realtors who claimed they knew the area but did not. One realtor was too lazy to get out of the car and sent us in to look at a house alone. Another realtor played on his iPad while we were looking at a house, and acted inconvenienced when asked a question. Yet another said "I am just a 'key access' person, I don't answer questions", and another said they would schedule an appointment for us, and never did.
So when I called Mark, I wasn't sure what to expect. I told him the type of property we were interested in, and in what area we were looking at. The property had just received an offer but was vacant so he offered to meet me there in 30 minutes so I could see if it was the type of property that would work for us. He identified that there were similar ones in the area that might come on the market.
He had been through the property before with another client and offered insights of the pro's and con's from the other clients perspective. This was very helpful information as you only get a short time in a home and the more information, the better.
We saw a second home that he had also seen previously. Again he shared useful information. We decided to make an offer, and Mark provided the comps, potential insight on appraisal considerations, and guidance on statistics related to market price.
Once we made the offer, Mark continued to be there for us. He answered our emails and phone calls promptly and gave us detailed updates on what to expect, and what had occurred. He was there for us at the inspection, and available to us at closing. (We switched our closing time due to our schedule at the last minute and he had a commitment).
Mark was trustworthy, responsive and communicative. He was extremely knowledgeable of the East Valley ( I am sure other areas too). If we find ourselves needing real estate in the future, he will be our "go to" person. We can honestly say that of all the realtors we have ever engaged in various regions of the country, that Mark is the cream of the crop.
Mark helped me buy my house about a year ago. He was so knowledgeable and did such a fantastic job of building relationships with the seller and the other realtor. During the process, we hit a few bumps along the way. It's clear to me that Mark's expertise in building those relationships keep those bumps from turning into hills or mountains. I would heartily recommend Mark - very knowledgeable, very service-oriented and a great guy!
