Rhode Island Real Estate firm introduces David Carty to their Narragansett Office

By Marina Hare

Lila Delman Real Estate International is pleased to welcome the former owner and principal broker at Carty Realty, David J. Carty, to their office in Narragansett, Rhode Island.

David is a second generation real estate professional since 2001 and has recently joined the Lila Delman Real Estate International Narragansett office dealing with both sales and rental listings. David worked alongside his mother, Marguerite R. Carty, who founded Carty Realty 45 years ago. After his mother’s passing, David found that he was wearing “too many hats” in the office and needed to redirect his focus back to selling real estate. When asked why he chose Lila Delman Real Estate International, the broker associate says “it was key to provide my clients with the highest and best services available and with the supreme marketing and exposure that Lila Delman Real Estate International offers, I felt I could confidently sell homes at ease.” David has transitioned smoothly into the office by delegating many of his rental clients to the strong rental department in Narragansett.

Under his guidance, Carty Realty surpassed 100 million dollars in sales. Having grown up in the Bonnet Shore Community of Narragansett, Rhode Island, his reputation for professionalism is well-known throughout the area. David is proud to share his sale of “Sand Castle by the Sea” in Narragansett for $6 million in July of 2004 and is looking forward to expanding his luxury sales portfolio.

David has a degree in Human Resource Management from Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island and is an avid basketball player on many local teams. David, his wife Meghan, and their two children, Logan and Addison reside in the Pier area of Narragansett. In his spare time, David can be found tee-ing off at Shelter Harbor Golf Club in Westerly, RI since 2006 or coaching local youth sports.


Carty Realty LLC has been servicing the South County Area since it was established in 1969 by Marguerite R. Carty who was often referred to as the ‘Queen of Bonnet’. Carty Realty LLC was a member of Kent/Washington Board of Realtors, National Association of Realtors, and MLS. After working for many years in a fast-paced position in Providence, RI, Marguerite was “tired of referring her clients to local brokers and thought it was time to get her Brokerage license and set-up Carty Realty in our home,” says David. Carty Realty located to Boston Neck Road 10 years after the company started.


Lila Delman founded the company’s original office in Narragansett over 50 years ago. Since then, Lila Delman Real Estate International has grown to include 6 strategically located offices, over 100 associates, a marketing department that creatively uses online social media, and an award winning website. Utilizing international marketing partners such as Christie’s International Real Estate, Mayfair International Realty and Luxury Portfolio, the firm is consistently a frontrunner in the luxury market.
