Anne was so helpful every step of the way! As a first time home buyer, we didn't know anything but with Anne by our side we felt confident throughout the entire process. Her knowledge of the area, approachable demeanor, and responsiveness made buying our first home a piece of cake! We were more than satisfied with her guidance and help throughout the journey! Would definitely recommend if you are looking to buy a home :)Katie; Middletown, RI
Anne did an unbelievable job servicing my fiancé and I. As first time home buyers, the process from start to finish could not have gone smoother. Anne was there to answer any questions we had, day or night, weekday or weekend, and was also there to celebrate our tremendous victory when it was all said and done. Thanks to Anne's thorough assistance from the get-go, as well as her continuing education throughout the entire process, my fiancé and I could not be more confident that we made a terrific purchase, and we owe a great deal of our sense of relief and excitement to Anne's support.Matt; Middletown, RI
Although we entered the selling journey knowing we had a daunting task to downsize/purge our stuff and to professionally stage the house to show perspective buyers, Anne was so encouraging and inspired us to do what we needed to do to make our home presentable.....and it worked! A professional photographer first took excellent photos, and the house went on the market in early January. We soon had several showings and the first offer. Although this offer fell through, Anne continued to work hard for us, and the next offer went well. We texted often, because Anne kept us apprised of all the sale details every step of the way. We are very satisfied with the price we received. Anne was very professional, gave us great advice, and did everything we asked of her in a timely manner and always with a positive attitude. We would highly recommend her without any reservations to anyone who wants to sell their home in a timely manner and at a good price.Bob & Judy Gessler; Portsmouth, RI
We had a great experience with Lila Delman Real Estate, especially Anne Burns. From beginning to end, Anne was extremely helpful and professional in answering our questions and always responded to our emails and phone calls quickly. She always made herself available if we needed to discuss anything with her. She really seemed like she cared about her clients. We highly recommend Lila Delman and especially Anne! Anne even got us our first housewarming gift—an American flag for the house, which we thought was really nice.Grace & Henry; New York, NY & Newport, RI
Anne is very professional and knows her business well. Most important, she is patient and gets us answers to all our questions. We never felt pressured when working with Anne. I highly recommend her for your professional real estate needs.Shawn & Linda G.; Newport, RI
We worked with Anne Northup Burns on a purchase of our new home in Newport last summer. We met her when she stepped up and agreed to arrange some last minute showings that I requested off the web site CHAT actually.We knew immediately that she was the right agent for us. She is a lifelong resident of the area, seems to know everyone, and has her pulse on the market. She was quick to give us her most honest opinion on location, value, and condition of the homes, and she also did her research on the small details.If we walked into a house that we were not interested in, she would not waste any time, thanking the seller, and moved right on. A home we were interested in looked like it had a water line in the basement that wasn’t disclosed and the selling agent denied, and Anne looked up construction records verifying a flood in the home that had been remedied several years ago. Something the selling agent should have known. When we started to get serious about a purchase she had good instincts about timing and value, and we simply felt like she had our best interests in mind the entire way through the negotiations. Not to mention she is easygoing, fun, always went out of her way to meet us on our schedule even if the timing was tight.I trust her, and would highly recommend her to anyone, and in fact would definitely use her without hesitation again. We hope to see her around Newport this summer actually!RJ & Cathy S.; Simsbury, CT & Newport, RI
Anne was absolutely incredible to work with. She was tenacious and a true advocate, quickly identifying potential issues and helping to mitigate them as they arose. She was always responsive and went above and beyond what we would expect. It was beyond helpful to have someone who knew the area so well, has relationships established with others in the industry to recommend, and has deep expertise on the purchasing process. She actually changed our perception of the value of a realtor because she worked so hard for us at every turn. We would highly recommend her and her firm.Henry and Claudia Henderson
