“Deelyn did a fantastic job selling our home. We had lots of competition and Deelyn’s marketing effort resulted in our having many showings. We followed the market and knew several people who had their homes on the market simultaneously with us. They were amazed at the numbers of showings we had. Deelyn was always very direct, sincere and trustworthy.”
