A Proud History

Local Legacy... International Reach Since 1964

55 years ago, Lila Delman was not afraid to do things differently. Raising a family and running her own real estate company since 1964, Lila lived and loved history, teaching her children about architecture with the buildings around their Narragansett home.

As real estate developers began tearing down the Gilded Age mansions, Lila took preservation efforts into her own hands— dragging a stone Pelican statue from the demolished Dunemere Estate, and saving a series of antique chandeliers. Her unique vision set her apart and put a dream in motion.That aspiration, the company she built and the artifacts she saved became part of the legacy that thrives to this day.

For the last two decades, owners John Hodnett, Pamela Delman-Hodnett, and the late Melanie Delman have transformed their third-generation family business into the first name in Rhode Island luxury real estate with an unparalleled network. Shaped by its home in the smallest state in the country, Lila Delman Real Estate remains independently owned and independently minded, with a diverse team of local experts who are committed to their customers, their community, and its history. With offices along the beaches of Narragansett, Newport, Jamestown, Watch Hill, Little Compton and Block Island to Providence’s South Main Street, Lila Delman Real Estate has Rhode Island covered, from the Coast to the Capital.

Since 1964
