Delia Sutton, REALTOR — Going the Extra Mile

Born and raised in Panama, Delia came to the United State to attend college. She is the proud mother of three successful professionals and the grandmother of seven. She proudly became an American citizen and truly understands, believes in the American Dream of homeownership. In addition, she has a great respect for the military servicemen and women. Her granddaughter, son, and son-in-law are members of the United States Army.

Licensed in 1978, Delia has extensive knowledge of the real estate industry. She has built long-term relationships with families, many of her clients come back again and again for their home buying or selling needs. She’s not just their REALTOR®, she is their friend.

D’Ann Harper, Broker / Owner of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® received a letter directly from one of Delia’s clients sharing their truly wonderful experience.

Dear Ms. Harper:

My husband and I had the good fortune to work with Delia Sutton, a realtor with your firm, for a small real estate purchase in San Antonio in the last month. All had to be done electronically because we are, in fact, on a working assignment in Japan. Ms. Sutton’s professionalism in handling both our time differences and some rather frustrating obstacles thrown our way by the bank despite our good credit was spectacular. She answered our concerns outside of normal business hours, provided information, reassurance, and guidance in the purchasing process down to the handing off of the keys. Without her steadfast support, I doubt that this would have resulted in the successful completion of the purchase. We are extremely grateful to her.

Frankly, I have never before encountered a professional like Ms. Sutton who is so clearly willing to go the extra mile even when the remunerative payoff is not that great. We hope to be making other real estate purchases in the coming years and will definitely be seeking Ms. Sutton’s services and referring others to her. If she represents the “norm” at Coldwell Bank, all the better for you and your clients.

Feel free to share this testimonial on any public media site and do give Ms. Sutton the praise and/or award she deserves for having made us such satisfied customers.

Best regards,

Jo Anne Bowman and Gary Ullrich

Well done Delia! If you are looking for an agent who will do her best to satisfy your real estate needs, please reach out to Delia Sutton, REALTOR®. She enjoys working with people and helping them with one of the most exciting and important major decision in their lives — buying or selling a home.
