Thanks to my real estate agent, John Repoza, my home at 41 Merton Road in Newport, RI, sold in just 9 days. He covered every aspect of the sale with grace and style. John knew what questions to ask and guided me every inch of the way in preparing the house for sale. The photos of each apartment were beautifully displayed. All of the people at Lila Delman's Narragansett and Newport offices were gracious, helpful, and very professional. I am very impressed with John's level of commitment to his work and his follow through on every detail. Thank you, John, for a job well done. I am a very satisfied customer.Meredith Sabins; Newport, RI
I have been in the real estate industry as an Attorney, Broker and Consultant for over 30 years. During that time I have worked with hundreds of real estate agents in almost every region of the country. I recently purchased a home that was represented by John Repoza and he was the epitome of what a real estate professional should be. From day one, John was involved, completely on top of things and most of all, he was both accessible and honest. John also keeps you informed every step of the way. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest rating, I would give John a 12. He's a true professional in every way.John Alexandrov; Portsmouth, RI
Our experience with Lila Delman was wonderful. We were very lucky to work directly with John Repoza. I would highly recommend John to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home in South County. His knowledge of the market, and thoughtful approach, made our experience wonderful. Thank you, John!Kelly Rizzo; South County, RI
Selling your home can be a difficult decision aside from making sure that you choose the right professional to work with. We met with three different agents/agencies prior to selecting John Repoza with Lila Delman. We sold our home in 10 months for 95% of the original listing price. We were patient and so was John, we appreciated his honesty and commitment in this endeavor.Lori & Jim Dufficy; South Kingstown, RI
Last summer our house was listed with another real estate group for 90 days without any offers. We withdrew the listing and relisted the property with the help of John Reposa. John offered sound advice as to where our dollars were best spent in order receive the best return on investment. He also created a beautiful and professional virtual tour of the home and in as little as a month, we had a signed purchase and sales agreement for a fair price. Thank you, John.Katherine F.; South Kingstown, RI
Working with John was a pleasure from start to finish. We benefited greatly from his solid knowledge of Rhode Island and the different markets, and his advice helped us to home in on exactly what we were looking for. John ensured that the purchasing process ran smoothly, checked in with us frequently, and provided us with amazing contacts that were just as genuine and helpful as himself. We could not have asked for a better purchasing experience. Thank you, John!Kristy & Ted; Newport, RI
Listed with another broker, our house sat on the market with scarce activity and no offers for about six months. When we switched our listing to John, we got four offers in the first two weeks and ended up getting two competing offers a few weeks after that. Needless to say, the house sold, sold fast, and sold well.John was knowledgable, professional, effective, and efficient. He was crucial in making the sale happen and knew exactly how to market the house.The inevitable blips that occured on the road to the closing where handled efficiently, with class and aplomb.It is hard write a more positive review of our first-rate experience.John is a true professional whose sales record speaks for itself.S. E. Lavinio-Colonna; Newport, RI
John Repoza always responded rapidly to questions and developments in the process. With over 20 years of experience, his advice was extremely helpful in our decision making. He always remained positive and thoughtful and was very adept at offering advice or frank assessments when we asked or when he felt it was necessary. We always felt he has our best interests in mind.John & Nuri Pentangelo; Portsmouth, RI
John Repoza is a class act. He helped navigate me through the processes of purchasing my first home. He came highly recommended to me, and I in turn recommend him enthusiastically to anyone considering purchasing a home in Rhode Island. He is a master of his trade and combines an easy disposition with fast results.Paul Russo; Newport, RI
John was responsible for selling my house, but actually, he was so much more than just the listing agent. He provided insightful guidance as to what I could (and should) do to increase the desirability of the property. He handled so many of the details surrounding the entire process. This is the second time I've engaged in John's services. I was very happy with the price we set and the house was under contract within four days. Thank you John and thank you Lila Delman Real Estate.Jim Hagen; Newport, RI

The result was a comfortable, smooth sale.Jud Monroe; Wakefield, RI
Good morning; Just a moment to thank you for your excellent job in handling Janet's recent sale of her mother's home. Your professional approach and knowledgable insight concerning matters both large and small allowed the sale to proceed quickly and successfully to its conclusion. On behalf of both Janet and myself, thank you for a job well done!Richard & Janet T.
I worked with John several years ago to buy a house. I was pressed for time, and had many issues that demanded my attention outside of looking for a house. John took the time to understand what I was looking for, prescreened the houses on the market at the time so that I only looked at houses John was sure I would have some interest in, and took care of as much of the paperwork as possible so that it was a very easy for me to buy a new house.Robert K.
You made what everybody said was so hard, easy... looked out for us at each step -- we got lucky, really lucky.Barb & Eduardo; Middletown, RI
Considering the state of the housing market when we first decided to sell our house, my husband and I knew that selling it would be a challenge. After hearing from a couple of agencies in the area, we decided to go with an agency that focuses on quality homes in South County, Lila Delman. By the luck of the draw (and I do mean luck, or maybe even very lucky!) it was John Repoza who answered the phone the day that I called. Not only was the house advertised in all of the local real estate books, multiple listings, and newspapers, it was also promoted nationally and internationally. Through John’s contacts, he was also able to get the Providence Journal to use it as its House of the Week with a front page spread in its Homes Section. Following the House of the Week, he had an Open House where over 50 couples showed up to see it. He was also instrumental in having it included as a home listed in the London Times as one of 10 Affordable Vacation Homes IN THE WORLD!John was professional in all of his dealings with both us and potential buyers. He worked always on our behalf, at all times looking out for our best interests. At the same time, he would make suggestions, but abide by our decisions, even if they differed from his. We thank John for his patience with our impatience, and for getting the job done. We definitely would recommend him to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home.Jack & Anni Rawcliffe; South County, RI
John is incredible! He helped use buy our first home 12 years ago and just sold it for us, one week on the market! Amazing! John is kind, knowledgeable, and genuine. He makes the whole process so stress free. I would highly recommend him to any one looking for a realtor. He really is the best!Nancy & Mike Carr
John is a remarkable agent, and I've worked with a number of them. This is no sideline or afterthought - he is a serious student of the profession, of opportunities on the horizon and challenges in the way. Most agents are content to be on time, gloss the rough edges and advise a quick sale. That's not John Repoza. He put my interests on top, and worked hard to achieve them - on time, under budget and with significant seller concessions.Stefan Tornquist; New York, NY
John has in depth knowledge of the market in Rhode Island and specifically the area we were interested in. He provided informed and professional guidance both while we were searching for our house and straight through to closing. His help didn't stop at closing - we have made through John contacts with local professionals for both our immediate needs at the house and for our long range plans. Excellent, excellent, excellent.Dr. Mark & Dr. Susan Sigman; South Kingstown, RI
John helped us buy our first home, and provided a level of knowledge and experience that made the experience very comfortable. He also saved us a ton of money at the closing, leveraging some small issues into a cash credit!Peter Alerie; Bristol, RI
After my mother passing away, my father decided to move into an independent living facility nearby and sell the family home. Once he was settled in his new apartment, we listed the house with John Repoza at Lila Delman. John was excellent at keeping us informed of all and any activity related to showing the house, and since it was no longer occupied, ensured that it was left in proper order after every showing. We received two offers and eventually settled on one, which John worked with us through the negotiations. The bottom line is we sold the house is less time than we had anticipated while at the same time ultimately getting the price we wanted for it.Lou Chrostowski; Kingston, RI
John is a great Broker who really knows his business. He is always willing to share his expertise with others, and anyone who deals with him on a business level is getting the best possible attention and service. Honest, ethical, compassionate, and a truly great person is what immediately comes to mind.Michael; Newport, RI
I worked with John a few years ago. He is professional, very hard working, very helpful with clients and is a wonderful source of knowledge in all aspects of real estate.Josie; Newport, RI
As first-time buyers, we had little experience to go on. Thank you for your patience while we learned... we're still amazed at how quick and effortless it all seemed... from finding our house to closing in only two weeks (at a very good price). By the way, we had been discouraged about being able to finance the house by every bank we spoke with. It was impossible until you showed us how.JP and KZ; Newport, RI
John Repoza was sharp, on the ball, called me back, took care of business... he was great.Meredith; Newport, RI
Whenever someone asks us to recommend a real estate agent, my wife and I get these giant smiles and go on and on about how awesome John is, and then we'll start laughing because we sound like a paid commercial. John is not only an extremely competent agent, but he has those extra qualities that make him a great one. He's a very nice man, fiercely loyal, tough, and smart. You can't go wrong with John - he's the best!Mike; Newport, RI
I highly recommend John Repoza. I chose him as my realtor last spring because I trusted him as a neighbor who knows and loves my neighborhood as much as I do. His enthusiasm is catching; his knowledge and experience, flawless. He sold my house in no time. Thank you, John!Ursula VonFluegge; Charlestown, RI
I know John both as a friend and as a real estate professional. I hired John as our buyers' agent to find us our primary residence on the East Side of Providence, mainly because of his knowledge of real estate and because we can trust him. John is personable, honest and disciplined He knows real estate. I highly recommend him for any transaction involving real estate. He also is a great fisherman.Bob Bozikowski
John did a wonderful job helping me and my husband find and purchase our new house, as well as sell the old one despite a not-so-great market. He helped make the transactions smooth, swift and successful. We're both very grateful!Christina Johnston
John is a thorough broker who is very alert and keenly aware of the changing marketplace. He helped us find our first house, now happily our home for over 10 years.Trixie B. Wadson
I have personally used John for a real estate transaction and he was nothing short of amazing! Tireless and devoted to the client, we are friends to this day... thank you again John!Brian Ernest
John is a fantastic agent who walked me through my first house purchase thoughtfully and patiently. He coordinated the numerous steps expertly, making the intimidating process a relatively painless and easy one for me. I highly recommend John Repoza as a housing agent.Wei Ying Wong
John was great as he guided us through being first time home buyers in a high demand market. We have now been in the house for 11 years and it is still perfect. He helped us find the perfect house. He has also kept in touch through the years to ensure we are still happy clients. I would recommend John to anyone looking for a real estate agent.Kevin F.
John is an honest, intelligent, and diligent real estate broker. He has handled matters on behalf of buyers I have represented, as well as sold real estate for estates I have handled. His services are exceptional in all respects, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a top-notch real estate broker.Richard D.
John is a results-oriented real estate expert in the Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts markets. In a very tough market and driven by very specific purchase criteria, John was diligent in showing several properties and provided expert advice over several months. When it came time to place an offer and negotiate a closing deal, John was nothing less than superb. He is trustworthy, honest and has the utmost in integrity. I highly recommend him if you are in the market or plan on selling a house in this area.Paul M.
My husband and I were first time home buyers, and John was our realtor. He was FABULOUS. He took the time to understand what we were looking for, presented us with options, led us through the process, and got us settled in the perfect home for us (and our miscellaneous critters!). I was VERY nervous at this big venture, but John made it SO EASY. He explained every step before we got to it so we knew what to expect. I would hire him again in a second and highly recommend him to anyone.Kristen C.
John and I recently completed a transaction together where John represented a first time home buyer. He successfully negotiated an excellent purchase price for this buyer and handled any and all issues with the property that came along. The result was a smooth, on-time closing with all parties completely satisfied. John is a pro and I would recommend his services and knowledge of the real estate market to anyone.John M.
I have known John for more than 30 years. He is an extremely experienced real estate professional who has the depth of knowledge that only comes from surviving and prospering in every kind of market. He zealously represents his clients with honesty and a passion for meeting their needs and surpassing their expectations.Stephen K.
My law firm engaged John to sell estate property. In each instance, he was able to find willing buyers who were able to complete the transaction in a timely manner. Marketing property subject to Probate is often frustrating. With John, it was a pleasure. Not only did I enjoy working with him, but my clients did as well.Karen A.
I asked John to be my broker when it was time to sell my house in 2004. He went far beyond what was required and became not only a salesman for me, but an advocate and mentor. He handled the sale from start to finish with integrity and expertise. Whenever I had a question, an anxious moment, or just needed someone to hold my hand through the daunting paperwork and many of the decisions that had to be made, John was right there to make the experience as stress-free as was possible. When the first prospect actually made an offer I couldn't refuse, I knew my luck had much to do with John's demeanor as an agent and his professionalism mixed with his easy going personality. John's knowledge of RI and his willing to do research with anything he is not familiar with was an added bonus. If you are ready to sell or buy a home, John is your man.Miriam G.
John Repoza is a real-estate Samurai! He's absolutely the person you want on your side - he's a no-nonsense, clear business partner who will represent you as a seller or a buyer (he's helped me with both). I've met few people with the integrity that John has. John helped me sell two houses, and buy one house. I was nothing but impressed by his approach, knowledge, responsiveness, wisdom, and his absolute integrity. I highly and without reservation recommend John Repoza.Eric P.
John is a great real estate broker. He is dedicated to his customers and drives for results for them. After the transaction, he will always remember his past clients and is in contact with them. That is something which I have found to be very rare. A transaction with John is one which you can rest assured that the details are covered.Bill C.
