What They’re Saying...
We were most fortunate to have Kendra Toppa as our realtor for our recent home sale. Throughout the entire process, she was straightforward, honest, friendly and professional. She responded very quickly to our calls and handled all issues in a fair and practical way. We could not have been more pleased with her service and recommended her highly!Judi & Randall Rosenthal; Portsmouth, RI
My husband and I have been buying and selling homes for literally thirty years. Our home purchases have ranged from Connecticut all the way to Maine. Yet in all of that time, we have never had a real estate agent give us the time, attention, patience and help that we received from Kendra Toppa. We are thrilled with our new home and I can honestly say that we would not have found this home, if it had not been for Kendra. She has also handled selling our previous home. Within 60 days we received multiple offers for the home we were selling. I give her the highest possible recommendation for anyone looking to buy a home or sell their home. She has been nothing short of amazing!Amy Yasko; Middletown, RI
Thank you for your outstanding professionalism throughout the entire process of selling my home.I have nothing but the most positive words for my experience and you can be sure that I will pass that along by word of mouth.Fay; Portsmouth, RI
Kendra sold our home in 7 days. She exceeded our expectations and made the process smooth and worked as a great advocate on our behalf. I would highly recommend Kendra in this aggressive market to sell your home. She's great!Katie & Michael Potter; Middletown, RI
My experience with Lila Delman was more than what I hoped for. My agent, Kendra Toppa, went above and beyond in customer service, attention to detail, and professionalism with a warm, engaging, personal touch.Deborah
We chose Lila Delman based on that agency's reputation for access to a broader range of prospects, extending beyond the local to a regional and international clientèle, and its reputation for handling high quality properties, which is what we were selling. While that didn't work out - our buyer was local and delivered by another agency - we were pleased with the package of photos and features that Lila Delman produced for their website. Our broker was Kendra Toppa, from Newport, and she was exceptional: attentive, a good communicator, persistent, dependable, and detail-oriented. She dealt with the inevitable complications that can come with the sale of a house, preventing them from turning into roadblocks. Kendra was an excellent navigator and kept us informed and well-advised right up to, and including, the closing.Ed & Pat O'Connell; Portsmouth, RI
Lila Delman did a fantastic job of marketing our home. After seeing the photos online, we fell in love with our home again! After only three months from listing the property, we had a check in hand at the closing. Pricing the home realistically from the beginning was the key to being on the market for a short time.Tom Burnham; MIddletown, RI
