A realtor with outstanding professionalism and integrity, Dylan Cadman brings to the table an impressive ability to anticipate customer needs and an enthusiasm to see them through. Raised to understand the value of a hard day’s work, Dylan has quickly risen through the ranks of every company where he’s worked and every industry he’s entered during his career, from the start of his sales journey at his father’s marina to the accomplished realtor he is today.
The combination of an outgoing personality, attention to detail, and respect for the client’s interests sent Dylan’s sales career on a vertical trajectory that just keeps climbing. His move to Calgary in 2009 was the result of a significant promotion to become the Western Canada Sales Manager for one of North America’s largest construction industry rental companies. While with Integrity Worldwide, Dylan has consistently outperformed his quota targets by an average of 20 per cent. He achieved sales of $500,000 in the first three months of the company’s re-launch in Calgary.
Dylan honed his negotiating skills and business acumen during his time with Integrity and on the sales floor at the family business, Mark’s Motorsports, in Brantford, Ontario. In both positions, he regularly developed and delivered presentations, negotiated pricing and wrote detailed contracts for clients. Customer relations and industry knowledge drove his success as it continues to do in his role as a Sotheby’s Realtor.
Dylan brings a keen knowledge of the home building industry and commercial market to his realty partnership with his wife, Shannon. His analytical mindset and business acumen, combined with her love of design and commitment to functionality, came together to create a formidable, customer-focused team that works tirelessly to achieve the best outcome for their clients.
The couple’s decision to join Sotheby’s was driven by a desire to represent the company’s commitment to providing luxury service to its clients, with individualized and detailed marketing plans for each home. Dylan says the Sotheby’s philosophy and reputation for unparalleled service is a value they share in their quest to match clients with their dream homes or help sellers achieve the sale that suits their needs.
“Our top priority is always the client,” he says. “We focus on providing the best service possible with personal attention, superior negotiation skills and marketing expertise. Being attuned to the desired community, demographics and amenities has helped drive our success. In the end, it is a great feeling knowing our personal support has helped guide our clients through their purchase or sale.”
With proven negotiating skills and a long list of satisfied customers, Shannon Cadman is a realtor you want on your side. Whether you’re selling your home or looking to buy, Shannon offers her clients acute attention to detail and a track record of sound business acumen gained through years in international sales and client relations.
In the early stages of her professional life, Shannon rose from sales representative to marketing coordinator at Race Wear Manufacturing, a multinational manufacturer of flame resistant suits for race car drivers. Before long, she landed the position of General Manager at the company’s office in South Carolina.
In this international business role, Shannon managed relationships with investors in order to secure working capital, developed a network of distributors in the United States, and negotiated sponsorship arrangements with racers, track managers and race series. She spearheaded the securement of a distributor in Australia and successfully negotiated the Live Nation account, which included televised monster jam events.
When opportunity summoned her husband Dylan to Calgary, Shannon turned her passion for fitness into a new career as general manager at one of Calgary’s oldest fitness facilities, the YWCA’s Fitness on 5th. Taking on the multi-faceted responsibility of managing the facility’s staff and setting and achieving sales targets all while adhering to the organization’s budget. In her role, she designed a corporate wellness program to help promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle for those leading busy professional lives. As well as encouraging clients and staff to strive for their best, Shannon also became a competitor in national level fitness events.
Since 2013, Shannon has been bringing this energy, passion, and strategic mindset to the world of real estate, earning awards such as Gold Top Sales and Rookie of the Year. Beyond these measures of success, Shannon has gained the respect and gratitude of countless clients. Her testimonials speak to both her commitment to securing a satisfying transaction as well as her eye towards functionality and fit with her client’s needs. She utilizes her extensive knowledge of the Calgary market to offer a variety of suitable options and brings that strength to the negotiating table.
“For me, it’s about being a good listener,” she says. “I take in everything, getting to know my client’s needs and necessities in order to help them reach the next phase in their lives. It’s exciting for me to help someone find the place they will call home.”
Originally from Ontario, Shannon has been calling Calgary home for close to a decade, taking full advantage of the opportunities it provides to spend time in the mountains. When she isn’t exploring Alberta’s backyard, she loves to broaden her experience of the world through travel. It all gives her an even greater appreciation of having a place to call home, especially now as she and Dylan enjoy raising their young daughter.
