I've worked with realtors before; all were competent enough and fulfilled their part of the bargain. But Del is in another league; he went far, far beyond his job description in order to ease things for me. When my Pasadena house went on the market, I was in the midst of a logistically complicated move, and expected to have to fly back and forth between Pasadena and my new city in order to manage the sale of the Pasadena house. Del made it possible for me to avoid that entirely, taking on many tasks that should have been my responsibility. He arranged for house cleaning, repairs, everything. My neighbors reported that in my absence he was stopping by to water, sweep, and check for mail. And Del did all of this in the calmest, sweetest way -- always brushing off thanks with "That's my job."
But while Del's personality is laid-back, when it comes to the transaction he is sharp, detail-oriented, always ten steps ahead in terms of what needs to be done next. He priced the house with great care, which resulted in 17 offers above asking, and was an extremely deft negotiator. To sum up: Del is experienced, skilled, kind, and completely trustworthy. I was privileged to work with him".

"Incredible agent! Del handled both our sale and subsequent purchase and he kept the train on the tracks, and me out of the track lights. We always felt supported, especially when our first buyer started playing games. Del took control of the situation and represented us flawlessly. He was calm when we were not and did an excellent job advising us and walking us through a very difficult process. Highly recommend!"
"First and foremost let me say that it is a pleasure to write this review for Del. I am so grateful to him and his unwavering efforts towards finding the most perfect home for me and my husband. If any of my family or friends ever wanted to buy or sell their home I would be more than happy to share my secret weapon, Del Lile! He is not only personable and a blast to check out homes with but this guy really knows his stuff. I have never known or heard of a a Realtor that was more willing to really go the extra mile to insure the satisfaction of their clients. We couldn't have asked for a better partner in process of purchasing our very first home and if we were to ever move, Del would be my first call."
"He is very patient and was always good about communication. Hard to find a reason not to go with this guy. Very honest and professional. Will use him again in the future!"
"Pro that helped us when we moved from Illinois to California. Helpful, responsive, knowledgeable. Great to work with. First helped us to rent a home and then helped us to purchase a home. Great local knowledge which was especially helpful to "out-of-towners".
"Del professionally marketed and sold our historic home. Due to his expertise with high-end, historic homes, he was able to attract a large number of buyers who competed as we selected through multiple offers, resulting in selling $50K over our initial price. He has assisted us with additional investment property identification, and seems to always put our interests first!"
