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

Cindy Pundt, Your Hometown REALTOR®

Without the professional guidance and experience of a licensed REALTOR®, buying and selling a home many times means tangling with unnecessary complications and roadblocks.The term ‘REALTOR®’ is a registered, collective membership mark, with identifies real estate professionals who are members of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and adhere to its strict Code of Ethics. The NAR outlines the many benefits of working with a professional REALTOR® to handle all of your real estate needs.

Among our team of over 425 licensed REALTORS® is a lady by the name of Cindy Pundt. Born and raised in the Texas Hill Country, Cindy has lived in Texas her whole life. Her interest in real estate blossomed when she purchased her first home. Over the years she has honed her skills and expanded knowledge of the Texas real estate industry.

Recently, Cindy received a glowing recommendation from a client:

“During a period of less than one year, Cindy Pundt listed my two homes at { removed for privacy } in Converse, TX.  My wife and I were pleased that both were sold in less than 2 weeks – one in 2016 and the other in 2017.  Cindy Pundt was more than instrumental in getting each home ready to be put on the market and kept the exterior in compliance with HOA rules.  I believe that her efforts were well beyond any assistance that I received in buying and selling several homes during the last 40 years.  I want to recognize her excellent customer service and superb interpersonal skills.

The first home was sold during my retirement from the U.S. military.  It had been rented for two years and need exterior and interior repairs and general maintenance.  What made her efforts more extraordinary is that she coordinated services with me while I resettled in Montana.

We waited to sell the second home after another renter left.  Unfortunately, that renter left the home in terrible shape and we were not aware of the extent of other issues as we were in Montana.  All the carpet needed to be removed and it had been replaced only 2 years before.  A more serious concern was that the renter had not disclosed the extent of water damage from leaking PEX water lines.  Ms. Pundt recommended that the developer be contacted since she knew that other homeowners’ in the area had their water lines completely replaced by the developer.  I contacted DR Horton and they agreed to replace the water lines and provide a warranty.  The Ms. Pundt obtained three quotes each for completely repainting the interior and another for the carpet.  At the same time, the roof needed to be replaced due to hail damage during April 2016.

Ms. Pundt was wonderful throughout both prelisting and listing efforts on each home.  We thank her for all her assistance and reassurance about being able to sell the two properties.  We would highly recommend her to other clients.”

Thomas and Irene Mihara

Needless to say, she takes pride in delivering excellent customer service to every client she serves. This and all of the reviews clients have left for Cindy can be viewed here on Cindy’s professional profile page. If you are interested in getting the home buying or selling process started, give Cindy a call at (210) 483-6147 or email her cpundt@cbharper.com.

How to Deal With Unsightly City Trash Cans

We’ve all been there. Maybe it’s that one neighbor who moves their trash cans in front of your house? Or perhaps you are a real estate agent trying to guide the homeowner so that it photographs well.

Either way, large obtrusive items like city trash cans can cause quite the eyesore.

Our professional photographers do their best to ensure such things are minimized in photos to best compliment the home while remaining true to its representation. Naturally, the on-staff designers could not resist adding their bit of flair to combat the view of a, particularly overwhelming view.

The original…

And who can blame them? What is more interesting — a meeting of trash cans OR…

The most interesting man in the view.

Now THAT’S interesting.

Not quite your style? Well, what’s more stylish than an entire marching band??

We admit this isn’t our most convincing Photoshop work.

But how about THIS:

That is enough to dispell any doubt of the myth of Loch Ness.

Or maybe you’re a fan of the American Classic:

What is more American than the good ‘ole legend of Bigfoot?

No? Maybe you are more of a hero fan…

Chuck Norris a.k.a. Walker the Texas Ranger, the subject of endless memes and a legend in his own right.

Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without the other legend…

Bruce Lee. Arguably the most famous martial arts master.

 

 

Or folks could just move trash cans. (No, not our folks – your folks.)

 

It’s ok we really do understand.

CBHarper’s Summer Blood Drive 2017

Throughout the year, for many consecutive years, we host Blood Drives for the South Texas Blood and Tissue Center. Sometimes we have a face for our cause to donate life-saving blood.
Such is the case with Noami Hennesey.

Noami was born with an autoimmune disease called thalassemia, a condition quite common in her native China. Thalassemia is a blood disorder in which the body does not create enough red blood cells or enough of the oxygen-carrying protein called hemoglobin. The only treatment for thalassemia is blood transfusions, which Noami will receive for the rest of her life.

In China, blood donors are rare and there are extreme shortages of blood available for patients. Noami, who grew up in an orphanage, would receive blood transfusions just twice a year. The result was that she always was exhausted and frequently in pain. Fortunately, she was adopted at the age of 10 by a family from Helotes, and now she is able to receive lifesaving transfusions on a regular basis, approximately 35 to 50 units of red blood cells in a typical year.

Noami is thankful for the number of donors in the United States who have been a part of her progress. Many children with thalassemia from the area in China where Naomi is from do not live past the age of 14, but she has already beaten that with her recent 15th birthday — and a normal life.

The CBHarper Summer Blood Drive was a tremendous success and proud supporter of Noami and other like her who depend on life-saving donations. We exceeded our goal of 10 pints of blood and collected 16 pints of blood, which means we saved 48 lives!
We also had 2 donors who donated Double Red Cells which counts for 4 pints of blood.

Special thanks to everyone who donated blood and who helped to make our Summer Blood Drive such a huge success.

 

 

We wanted to offer an outlet for those that still wanted to give but perhaps ran out of time. There is a location very close just off Northwest Military and Loop 1604 where donors can drop by – you can even schedule an appointment online here.

Car Wash Benefiting Boys & Girls Club of Bandera

July 22nd, Bandera, TX —  It was a hot, hot Texas Summer weekend out in Bandera, Texas. That did not stop Amy Thibodeaux and Stacey Cox from CB Stagecoach in hosting a Car Wash / Bake Sale. All proceeds benefited the Boys & Girls Club of Bandera.

The mission of Boy & Girls Clubs of Bandera County is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need them most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens. They depend on donations and support from the community to continue doing great work with Bandera’s youth.

Many cars showed up to get that sparkle and shine car wash. Many visitors enjoyed treats from the Bake Sale to snack on. The club had a great time despite the heat and packed it up just before the hottest part of the day at 2pm.

Interested in getting involved or giving back?

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Bandera County is located at 715 Maple St., Bandera, TX 78003.
