What They’re Saying...
I have had a long term working relationship with Gladys Barbosa, Lila Delman Real Estate, in both the purchase and sale of properties in Warwick, Wakefield and Narragansett, Rhode Island. She is an outstanding real estate professional who is friendly, gregarious, intelligent, and always my go-to person, when I am considering a real estate transaction. Gladys is extremely knowledgeable about the Rhode Island real estate market and, thus, always capable of steering me towards a successful outcome. In two real estate transactions this year, she cleverly positioned me in a way that I was the highest bidder on a short sale property by providing me with an option that I did not know was even available to me. In addition, when selling my home in order to purchase the short sale, she was able to give me simple suggestions for inexpensive staging and improvements that led to a quick sale. I was a very happy seller and buyer, within a very short period of time! If you are considering any type of real estate transaction, I would highly recommend that you work with Gladys Barbosa.Judy Haurspak; Boston, MA
We wanted to send a quick note to tell you how wonderful Gladys Barbosa was to work with while we were looking for condos in Newport. Right from the start, she was energetic, followed up quickly on any questions we had, and was a pleasure to work with. We chose a townhouse that we loved almost immediately and put a bid on it, but for some reason (many reasons) the sale did not come together easily. We settled on a purchase price right away, but there were multiple problems with condo docs, the sellers travelling, the inspection, etc. Gladys pulled off this sale almost singlehandedly; I am sure without someone of her caliber, we or the sellers would have walked away from the deal-and we really loved this place. She spent a lot of time on her own searching documents, meeting with the sellers lawyer, being present for inspections - really advocating for us all the way. We were also very impressed with her knowledge base about real estate - my husband is a business/real estate lawyer in MA, so he really appreciated how knowledgeable she is. She has a lovely personality, both with us and all of the people we had to deal with, even when things got a little contentious. We are very newly into our townhouse, and love it just as much as we thought we would! I could go on and on, but will stop here - we just wanted you to know what a wonderful experience it was working with Gladys. I have already given her name to two of our friends who are thinking of looking in Newport for vacation homes.Judy & Barry Scheer; Newport, RI
What a great job you did guiding me through the sale of my dear house. You gave me time and patience when I needed it and gentle nudging when I needed that. Everything went so smoothly that there was little stress and no regrets – thanks to you. You are just so good at what you do! Much gratitude.Jude
We owe you a tremendous belated but no less heartfelt THANK YOU!!! While it was a busy summer moving in...we just kept marveling over and over again at how much we love our new home and how wonderful you were in making it all happen for us. Never having sold a house before, and with very little experience in purchasing one - you, from the moment we met put us at ease and made us feel comfortable with every aspect of buying and selling from start to finish. Not only did you do a tremendous job for us professionally, we also enjoyed you tremendously personally. We will recommend you to everyone we know who ever plans to buy or sell a house. We hope the folks at Lila Delman know how amazing you are and what an asset you are to their company.Bridget & Sean; Narragansett, RI
It is with highest regard that we write this letter on behalf of our home buying experience with Gladys Barbosa. We first met Gladys when were were viewing a home in the neighborhood of our dreams in South Kingstown. While that home wasn’t right for us, Gladys had a clear understanding of what we were looking for and we felt a connection with her. She continued to show us homes and, sure enough, she was able to help us find and secure our dream home in that same neighborhood! We are so grateful that we met Gladys that initial day and we are equally grateful for the support and enthusiasm she provided us during our home hunting and buying experience. Gladys went above and beyond; she was with us every step of the way. Whether it was being there for the home inspection or responding to our calls and emails; her responsiveness was a welcome and calming influence. Gladys' knowledge allowed us to secure our dream home and her emotional support made the process unforgettable. She demonstrates a calm professionalism that is easily rivaled by her kindness. She truly cares about her clients and this shows in her actions. We hold Gladys in highest regard and are happy to now call her a friend. She is, without a doubt, an exceptional realtor and an amazing person.Andrea & Jayson Spas; South Kingstown, RI
Gladys and Janet are a remarkable team! I sold a modest beach house in Narragansett and yet they treated me as if I were the seller of a huge oceanfront mansion. I live out of state, so selling a home in that case can be even more difficult. Gladys and Janet helped with all sorts of things--from finding painters, carpet stretchers and handymen--to rearranging some furniture! Not only were they efficient and professional, but genuinely caring and kind. I would recommend them highly to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Rhode Island.Anne Carroll Decker, Ph.D.; West Hartford, CT
I am so sorry for the lateness of this letter. I would like to thank you for all that you did for my mother and me; without you two, I can only imagine the harder times that we would be suffering through right now. You two worked with us through the hardest times we have ever gone through and helped get us our house sold in what seemed like impossible times in the housing market. You were dedicated to us as our Realtors, and I will never forget how much you helped us. You pulled off a miracle, but I know it was more hard work and dedication than it was simple luck. I will never forget what you did for us, and there are no other Realtors on this planet I would recommend over either of you. Thank you and I wish you the greatest success and more.Alexander Fanning; Narragansett, RI
