Dela was such a pleasure to work with. She kept us up to date with new listings and was very knowledgeable about each property we looked at. She remained patient with us as it took about 3 months for us to find our home. She was very helpful in setting us up with mortgage brokers and worked diligently with us as we searched for creative financing. I certainly recommend Dela! She's not only our agent, she's now a family friend. Brandiby The Yisreal Family
My brother lives in the Orlando area, and I wanted to buy a home near him to establish residency and to expand my business. The problem was, I run 3 different businesses, and I have VERY limited time to commit to searching, comparing, selecting, negotiating, and closing on the purchase of a home. Oh, and did I mention that I live in NORTH CAROLINA, some 700 miles away! Not to worry, my brother tells me, he has just the Professional to call: Dela Armstrong. I could not have been more impressed. In this market, where you hear the nightmare stories of short sales that do not close for months or do not close at all, Dela educated me, navigated all the pitfalls, and enabled me to close on time and on budget. The best part, it was no hassle and NO SURPRISES, which is something I greatly respect. With her help, from identifying the property through closing, I was able to buy the house that was perfect for me, and I did it "long-distance" without losing a day's work. I was totally (positively) surprised, I thought there was no way someone could handle my transaction as efficiently as Dela did. She made it so easy for me, I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. If she can do what she did for me from 700 miles away, I can only imagine how great the experience would be for someone local. THANK YOU DELA, YOUR THE BEST!by Dominick B North Carolina/Oviedo,Florida
Dela, Just a word of thanks for all you have done for Donna, Nate and myself in the purchase of our retirement home. Your patience and professional advice was invaluable to us. I could not have found a better representative in all of Florida. If I can do anything at all to help you with recommendations or references please let me know. You’re the best! Thank you for everything, Sincerely, Dr. Paul MacDonaldby Dr. Paul MacDonald
Regardless if you are looking for your first home or your tenth, having Dela Armstrong on your side when entering into today’s dynamic and rapidly changing housing market is an absolute necessity! Dela helped guide us through all of the various intricacies of the process from beginning to end, and all while showing an incredible amount of knowledge, patience and diligence in helping us find a home that was right for our family. From our very first meeting, Dela made it clear that she was not just a realtor, she was OUR realtor and there was never any doubt that she would always have our back and our best interests at heart. This is a crazy market and during our often-challenging home search that involved many ups and downs, Dela was the epitome of professionalism and optimism. She was an irresistible and positive force of nature that kept the whole process moving forward, even when things didn’t go our way. I can’t thank Dela enough for the help she provided as we navigated our way through the intricacies of finance acquisition, neighborhood and home selection, offer submission, inspections, evaluations, appraisals, negotiations and finally closing. In recommending someone to you as your real estate agent, it would be impossible for me to provide a stronger recommendation than the one I am offering you now on behalf of Dela Armstrong.by Brian Hayes & Teresa Tsai
We have thoroughly enjoyed working with you on the purchase of our new home. You were highly professional and ethical at all times during this complex transaction. We especially appreciated how you guided us through a detailed cost comparison of building a new home versus buying an existing home. Your knowledge of what builder upgrades would be needed was key to our making an informed decision about buying our home. Also your knowledge and experience in the Winter Garden real estate market made it very easy for us to pick the right neighborhood for our home. You have responded quickly to all our texts, emails and phone calls (even when you were on vacation). We had lots of questions and you took the time to carefully explain things in language that we could understand. You have also provided us with several key contacts in Winter Garden that will make our move here seamless. We were 100% satisfied with your support during our home purchase and will be recommending you to anyone needing a Realtor in the Winter Garden area.by Doug Bartow
Dear Dela, I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all that you did in order to sell my Mother’s home. You were so very helpful, knowledgeable and available anytime to answer my many questions and ease my many worries and concerns. It certainly was a learning process and you were there to guide me every step of the way. My sisters and I are forever grateful for your guidance and support with regard to this real estate transaction. I could not have done it without the help from such a professional Realtor like yourself. I would highly recommend you to anyone considering selling or buying their home and I am happy to call you my Realtor for life! I wish you the best and continued success in all that you do. Sincerely, Marleneby Marlene
Sold a Condo home in 2018 in Airport North, Orlando, FL. From the start, Dela was able to recommend local contractors to make repairs, in contact with us and helping throughout the entire process. After the repairs were complete, we were tempted to rent the property. I spoke to Dela about this and what separates her from most real-estate agents is she cares about what is best for your situation and not what would benefit her the most. Once we decided to list, we received a cash offer within 2 days of listing we accepted. Highly Recommended Dela to anyone in need of professional real estate advice.by Greg H.
Dear Dela: I would like to thank you for taking care of Tim and me with the purchase of our beautiful Longwood home. You were awesome in so many ways - Professional, persistent, knowledgeable, communicative and trustworthy. I remember finding the home online and it must have been your sight because while surfing the internet, I believe I added my name to view the home and immediately you called. That surprised me that you called so quickly. The property was taken off the market in December and I was very upset because I wanted to be right down the street from my grandbabies. You kept working in the background and did not give up! 2 months later, low and behold, you called to tell me it was going back on the market for a period of only 5 days. In that time the Sellers were going to accumulate offers and were only to accept one bid. You were able to structure our offer so it was the one chosen out of three. You dealt with the title company, lender and Seller are to assist us in getting cleared the open building permits and make sure that we closed on time. On top of it all, it is a short-sale, with all your knowledge of short-sales, we couldn’t have done it without you. There were so many moving parts and you kept them together so the transaction went smoothly and happened on time. I would gladly recommend your services to anyone looking for a home! We not only appreciated your dedication to completing our sale, but getting to know you, we feel like we’ve made a new friend. Thank you, thank you, and thank you! We love the home and the location. You helped us buy the perfect home for ourselves and our family! Sincerely, Pat Loftinby Pat Loftin
I recently worked with Dela Armstrong to sell my condo as a short sale. I knew very little about the process when I started, and Dela helped me to get through each step. She also explained everything along the way so that I had a better understanding of the entire course of action. She and her team covered all the bases: I could contact Dela or her office by phone call, email or text message, so it was always easy to reach someone. And when I had legal questions, I had access to the lawyer that works in conjunction with the real estate team. The whole process from listing to closing was completed in only 41/2 months! I would highly recommend Dela to anyone who is considering a short sale.by Donna Johnson
Earlier this spring my wife and I purchased another home that we knew we could develop into our “Dream Home”. The sale moved rapidly and we were quickly deep into our renovation plans. The home was taking shape and we knew that the timing was right for us to put our home of 11 years up for sale. We felt that the selection of the right real estate agent would be the single most critical decision in the selling process. I wanted someone with a proven track record and that was intimately familiar with the community where we lived. The individual had to be detail oriented, a good communicator and familiar with the market trends. We did our homework and spoke to friends whom had recently sold their homes. We interviewed several top candidates and ultimately found everything that we were looking for in Dela Armstrong. We found Dela to knowledgeable of our market, she came prepared to our meetings, she was detail oriented and kept my wife and I abreast of her progress. Also very important to me, she impressed me with her energy and motivation that kshe brought. We always felt that our home would show well but we challenged Dela to find us prospective buyers that would recognize the value of the property over and above the current comparable appraisals. Dela delivered! Within approximately one week of listing with Dela we had two strong offers very close to our asking price. With Dela guiding us along we accepted what we felt was the stronger offer and quickly signed a contract! I would strongly recommend Dela Armstrong whether you are looking to purchase or preparing to sell your home. Dela Delivers! Sincerely,by John R. Tuhela
My Short Sale Experience: I am a single mother of two children and have limited resources available to me and I accomplished the American Dream and purchased my very own home. I was elated until I started having difficulty keeping up with the mortgage when my rate adjusted. When my home went into foreclosure I tried multiple avenues to keep it. When the mortgage company would not work with me to create a successful solution, I used bankruptcy to keep the foreclosure at bay. After a couple of years, it became too difficult to keep up with the bankruptcy payments. I thought I would have to let the house go back to the bank. That's when Dela told me about Short Sales. She explained to me how, with the bank's permission, we could sell the house for less than my loan and still have the loan satisfied. There was no reason not to try, so we went to work right away. She helped me organize and spruce up my house to make it appealing to buyers. She even spent an afternoon helping me pull weeds! We soon had it ready to go on the market, and the inquiries started almost immediately. Dela called me each time someone wanted to look at the house to find the most convenient time for me and to give me time to straighten things up. She was always very considerate of my time and feelings. Dela was very helpful in preparing me for each step of the process. She was very aware that this, more so than a regular house sale, is a very emotional process. By keeping me informed and prepared she made the process easier. Luckily a buyer was found very quickly. They held on while we went through the 6-month waiting.. period of bank approval. While the whole thing could have fallen apart at any time, it continued to move forward. In the end the closing went smoothly. I attribute the ease of the process to Dela and the people she brought on board to help with the short sale negotiations with the bank. I could never have done this on my own. I would not have known where to start and I am very thankful to her and her team for pulling me through a very difficult time in my life. I would highly recommend Dela to anyone in a similar position as I was in. Her professionalism and knowledge of the market and of the inner workings of short sales make her a great asset to have on your side. Thank you Dela! I appreciate you and all that you do.by Kim Oropeza Orlando, Florida
Dear Prospective Homeowners: It is our immense pleasure to recommend Dela Armstrong as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. Dela helped my family to purchase two houses and we were comfortable in both of them. The first newly built home was purchased in 2012 and the second home was purchased recently. Dela had an initial meeting with us and took diligent notes regarding our specific needs in a single family home as well as our budgetary limitations. She is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale in the best school districts. She did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs. A master with the contract negotiations, Dela came up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well. Throughout this home buying process, she also managed to sell our townhouse for an excellent price, especially in the current market situation. She knows Orange county Florida like the back of her hand. There is nothing that escapes Dela's attention when it comes to property for sale in this area. We found Dela to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging personality. Dela was honest about some minor changes that we needed to make in our townhouse to attract buyers quickly, and her advice worked like a charm. My wife and I are pleased to recommend Dela Armstrong to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again she will be our first choice in real estate agents. Regards, Hamid Elkheirby Hamid Elkheir
July 2018 We had the wonderful opportunity to work with Dela Armstrong, PA, a Broker Assoicate with RE/MAX ASSURED. Dela not only sold our home but also found us the most lovely of homes to purchase. The experience was the BEST WE HAVE EVER HAD over our years of buying and selling many homes. Dela guided us with precision and detail on exactly what to do in order to get our home sold. We followed her instruction which netted us not one, but two offers within a matter of our home being on the market less than 24 hours. We were so thrilled! Dela was able to find us the perfect home within a very short time frame and she and her team coordinated a back to back closing that went seamlessly. Thrilled again! Dela works with an outstanding team of specialists, including Shaunna Wooten, who will help you and guide you through the mortgage process. We would highly highly recommend Dela Armstrong PA and her Team for all of your real estate needs and will gladly use her services again. Thank you Dela…you’re the best!by Debbi and David Pariser
I have sold 2 homes with Dela now and was so pleased with both outcomes. My latest- sold a townhome near Lake Nona area. From the start, Dela advised me on what changes to make to the home. Then she recommended fantastic contractors to do the work. Once the repairs were complete, we were considering leasing the unit out. I spoke with Dela about this and you know what separates her from most real-estate agents- SHE CARES ABOUT WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU AND YOUR SITUATION & NOT WHAT WOULD BENEFIT HER MOST. We decided to list after reflecting on the pros and cons and once we did, she was able to secure a record sold price per sq ft with a cash offer within 48 hours of the property being listed. We accepted and are happy in our new home. Dela is the best and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking the advice of a true real estate professional that cares about your needs. Thanks Dela…you’re the best!by Jason G.
My husband and I were blessed to have Dela be our realtor while purchasing our first home. We had no idea what we were doing, so the first time we met, Dela clearly and patiently explained every step of the home buying process. We instantly felt like we had made the right decision. She is very knowledgable and clearly has tons of experience. One of the best parts of having Dela is that she genuinely cares about her clients. She took care of us like we were family and stayed in constant contact, even when she went on vacation. She was always just a text or phone call away. Hiring Dela as our realtor ended up being one of the best decisions of the entire process.by Courtney
I worked with Dela Armstrong, a realtor from Remax. From the outset, Dela’s response to my long-distance request was prompt and professional. We toured a number of properties and it was she who found the property that I eventually purchased. She was patient with me and thorough as I made my decision; I actually had made several offers and had the properties inspected with took up a lot of extra time. She had excellent attention to detail and follow-up, making checklists and timetables for me. She also gave me recommendations for professionals to work with including, inspectors, financing and insurance. (Additionally, since I was new to the area, she gave me helpful suggestions of vendors and businesses for personal help). The purchase of a new house can be a stressful experience but with Dela’s professional expertise the process went smoothly with a minimum of stress. I would highly recommend Dela Armstrong to anyone looking to purchase or sell a property.by Debra Lake Mary, Fl
