Rita was always available and always reassured me when the sales process became stressful. She provided great recommendations for work that needed to be done on my home before it was listed. Always followed up on the work or met the contractors at the house to get the work done. And of course her assistant Joe, was always a pleasure to work with.

I met Rita at a open house near the home I was going to sell. She was very helpful in answering all my question. She offered to come by and look at the house I was going to sell.

Rita was available at all times of the day and night, by email, phone and text. From the moment we met her and viewed our first home to receiving the keys in hand, Rita was wonderfully warm and polite, exceedingly patient with our children and understanding of our needs and schedules. Not only did she listen to what we were looking for in a home, but she made the effort to get to know us and assist us in selecting the perfect home for our family. Simply the best. We have worked with realtors in Cambria, California, Davis and Sacramento and Rita made our dreams come true. Thank you!!! Every aspect of the home buying experience went smoothly and more efficiently because of Rita's efforts. Her attention to detail, caring attitude and endless patience for my husband's and I's questions. Rita made our first home purchase enjoyable and much less stressful than I thought could be possible. Excellent experience.

I am writing a letter of recommendation for Rita Delgado: an amazing, dynamic, and thorough professional with excellent people skills. The best way for me to express Rita’s competency and professionalism is through the story of my most recent house sale. I have bought and sold several properties over the years. When I decided to sell my last home, I felt I needed someone with a lot of experience, savvy, and integrity. This house was previously owned by a handy man that added a living room and converted garage, potentially unpermitted. As a result, I asked a close personal friend and realtor who she would recommend. The answer was Perry Georgallis, an extremely experienced realtor. What I didn’t know was that his business partner Rita was part of the package. As we discussed listing the home, I connected with Rita immediately. Her first suggestion was a full house cleaning and detailing. Rita, as always, had a top professional to recommend for the work. The house sparkled! After this, Rita became my go to person. Then she suggested some minor repairs to help justify the high price I had set for the property; and to sell quickly. Throughout this process Rita was always available for support and reassurance. She set aggressive time tables and always met or exceeded these. We received three full price offers within four days!! The offer we ended up accepting was made by a very persistent bargaining individual. This person wanted a new roof at double fair market price, a new electrical sub panel and lots of little things. This process went back and forth with the buyer continually identifying new issues and sitting on counter offers for about a week. I was frustrated. So I called Rita. She said, don’t worry, we will work this out or take one of the backup offers. I was relieved. She made me feel like everything was in control. During this process, something magical happened. We moved from a position of continually attempting to please our potential buyer to negotiating a credit, which he gladly accepted after Rita explained the reality of the market to his realtor and provided competing bids for the roof and electrical work. I was amazed! Escrow closed shortly thereafter. I have no doubts you will be exceptionally pleased if you hire Rita Delgado she delivers professionalism with tact and integrity!
