About Derek Thistle

Top 1% Calgary Realtor® (CREB stats)

Hey - Thank you for stopping by. I'm Derek, a former Police Officer here in Calgary for 16 years! I was built to serve the community; and after you hear my story, you'll quickly understand why I chose to serve the community in a different role, in a far more positive way! I am very fortunate to have helped over 200 families buy/sell real estate in YYC and surrounding communities in my first 3 years in real estate! Why? Police Core Values: HONESTY, INTEGRITY and TRANSPARENCY.

With years of real estate service in the Calgary area, I can assure you that you are in good hands with me. I am committed to listening to my clients, focusing on their needs, and using keen negotiating skills to ensure a successful transaction.

My intimate knowledge of the Calgary region, and my experiences in patrolling our city as a cop, gives me skillsets that other Realtors can't offer.  Safety and security are non negotiables; I will never let you buy next to a "bad guy".

Client Testimonials

What they say

I pride myself in taking great care of my clients, making sure they understand and are confident in the buying or selling process. I enjoy the challenge of catering to each clients specific needs with their real estate decisions. Read below for some comments from just a few of my recent clients.


Dealing with Derek and his team is a breeze. They’re meticulous but fun yet very professional bunch. They came in and help us with pricing our home with comparable units, then setting up everything with photographers and videos and drones…the whole works! Then a day and a half later, we got ourselves competing offers! Now, we’re homeless 😉. Thank you again Derek for helping my family out. We really appreciated it.

Rosanne Adonis

Derek has been so great to work with throughout our selling experience. Whenever we had questions or concerns, he was always more then willing to hear us out and add his advice when needed and listen to our input. We recommend our family to him as well and we both sold through Derek. Not only did he sell our homes quick and one well over ask, he was so generous to us for our referral, and even treated us all to a lovely dinner. We will continue to recommend Derek to all of our friends and family for his generosity and overall great experience! Thank you Derek, you’re killing it ❤️.

Nicole Robinson

I HIGHLY recommend working with Derek!! He's professional, always on top of things and made our first home purchase a breeze! If you're thinking of buying in the Calgary area there's no other agent I could recommend more then Derek Thistle. 🙌🏻

Stephani Hart

Derek was awesome! Very knowledgeable about what he's doing, and available whenever he was needed. Working with him felt like working with a friend vs a client/customer relationship. If you want someone who will work hard for you, Derek is the realtor to go to!

Alvin Singh

Derek was absolutely fantastic. I was buying my first condo and it was just for myself and had no idea where to start. He walked me through the whole thing and was available to answer all my questions and ensured they weren’t silly. He went to bat for me in a very competitive market and listened to what I was looking for and delivered. He’s a fantastic realtor but even better person. I’d recommend him to anyone and everyone. Thanks again Derek, this won’t be our last deal together :)

Kaitlynn Proteau

Derek and his team had been a pleasure to work with! He was there every step of the way to ensure we are happy with the house we were buying and he excelled in maintaining communication with us at all times. This included me messaging him after work hours - and im guilty of this and I should had known better not to do this - but he always made sure he got back to us and answered all of our questions. Having that assurance that someone was looking out for us in today's market was a huge relief. Would highly recommend!!
