extensive professional career as a Contract Negotiator in Facilities and Records Management with Shell Oil.  She transitioned to the real estate industry with Coldwell Banker Pennington-Chen in 1996 and quickly became one of the company’s top producers by her second year.  That success led to a broader role where she mentored new Sales Agents through a custom, six-week training course she designed.  Ultimately, she was promoted to Sales Manager of her office, routinely achieving the Premier Office designation with Coldwell Banker.
Dianna also served as Sales Manager for Perry Homes in the Houston market, closing over $22M in a three-year period while receiving numerous awards.  Most recently, Dianna directed the education and training divisions of Stewart Title in San Antonio and routinely coached Sales

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.

Adopt-A-Pet, CBHarper & New Braunfels Humane Society Team Up

On Saturday, May 20th the office at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper Realtors in New Braunfels, Texas teamed up with their local New Braunfels Humane Society for their  Adopt-a-Dog day. “ This is the second time we have done this with their organization, and it’s a wonderful feeling to help the local dogs that are often abandoned or surrendered,” says Julie Gezella, VP for the New Braunfels office.

The event was well promoted, with all the newest in Coldwell Banker “Somebody to Love” promotional materials. Not to mention the fabulous heart-tugging commercial that is now airing!

Raffle tickets for a customized dog house were selling for $5.00 each.  “Our friends at Coventry/Wilshire Homes graciously donated this amazing dog house for BOTH years we’ve done this. To have a miniature little house with all the decked out high-end building amenities was pretty awesome!” says Gezella.

There was an auction with dog related items, as well as a donation jar for money and drop off station for food and dog items to help the Humane Society.

Seven dogs were delivered to the New Braunfels parking Lot (the Humane Society had a great week prior, adopting out several dogs already!!), one went home that day, one needed to do paperwork on Monday, and one needed a home visit to the prospective adoptee’s ranch to see how “Sandy” handled the horses he had.

“Main thing is the awareness that often people don’t know about. ADOPT don’t SHOP.  I personally have adopted THREE dogs from the New Braunfels Humane Society,” Gezella states. “ Once Coldwell Banker rolled out their 2015-2016 Promotion and challenged us to promote the adoption of 20,000 dogs, I just knew I had to be part of that. “

Over $800 was raised through raffle tickets and auction items, all benefiting New Braunfels Humane Society.

How can you resist those faces?! Such wonderful news to hear that seven dogs found their fur-ever homes.

Kerry Dike, Back-to-Back #1 Individual Sales Agent 2015-2016

As the famous Shrek once said, “Onions have layers.” Much like the almighty onion Kerry Dike also has layers, except she doesn’t stink and won’t make you cry (on purpose).

Kerry Dike has been a Sales Agent with Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® since September 2006. On her eleven year journey with Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® Kerry is often described as extremely hard-working, energetic and a creative problem-solver. Well known for her sense of humor, Kerry is able to meet any challenge with optimism and determination. Evidence of her success has been the achievement of #1 Sales Agent in the company for 2015 and 2016. Kerry’s multi-million dollar production ranks heftily at approximately 12 million dollars.

Outside of being a full-time REALTOR® Kerry is involved in a Planning and Zoning Committee for the City of Shavano Park. The Planning and Zoning Commission consists of nine members appointed by City Council, one of which is Kerry. They recommend boundaries of zoning districts, appropriate regulations, as well as preparation for public hearings and reports to City Council.

When asked about her goals Kerry says, “It’s about everyday, working to be a better REALTOR® than I was the day before. I want to show my children that life is about work ethic and how hard you’re willing to work to get what you want. For me, D’Ann remains the Gold Standard in every way. Period. I’m proud to be a part of that legacy.”

The most positive impact on Kerry’s success has been her family. They have taught her that in the right shoes, you can go anywhere — except if you’re in heels… and it’s muddy or if you’re on one of those gravel paths. Regardless, Kerry says she makes family choices and support non-negotiable in business.

Going forward her Kerry’s goal for 2017 is to be the best real estate consultant she can be. She does offer some advice for those looking to break into the real estate industry, “Luck doesn’t exist in real estate. When you are prepared for success, you will then recognize opportunities as they happen.”

… also, “Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away, and you have their shoes.”

Mason’s Mighty Superheroes

Cindy Enloe, REALTOR® brought us this heroic story of courage, triumph and love.

Meet Mason Martinez. Mason was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia on June 21st 2016 just one month after moving to Texas from Tampa, Florida. He was looking forward to trying out for the local swim team, the Hammerheads and making new friends at his school. This seven year old superhero was met with the kryptonite of blood cancer. His summer dreams were dashed as he battled for his life while his bone marrow was occupied by 93% and his blood by 50%.

Since then, Mason has spent over 35 nights in the hospital enduring two bone marrow sampling procedures, hundreds of doses of chemotherapy and over 15 outpatient lumbar punctures to test his brain and spinal fluid for any “kryptonite”.

Through his struggles his family and community in the Heights at Stone Oak/Hardy Oak Elementary area has loved and supported him. On July 28th, Mason “Ace” Martinez reached full remission! To help support Mason and his family a Superhero Race has been organized.
