That means we will go out of our way to be sure you are happy with our service – every day and every time we work with you.
This is what some of our past clients have to say about us.
"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. "
