Email – Mr. & Mrs. Brent D. Pavell

Dee Dee has been the biggest help we could hope for. I am active duty in the military, and Dee Dee has an understanding of that lifestyle. In our case, we found a house we wanted to bid on, but were unable to get to the area and walk through the house. Dee Dee was kind enough to record a walk through to give us an idea of the house. She also was knowledgeable enough to know we had found a good one and it wouldn’t be long before it sold. She was right and our first bid was accepted. Dee Dee made sure we got our requested inspections, was willing to set up our utilities, and helped us find our way around this new location. She went above and beyond without ever actually meeting us. If you’re looking to buy or sell, she knows the people, knows the area, and will go the extra mile to welcome you home. Thank you Dee Dee. Mr. & Mrs. B. D. Pavell.

Dalia Cortez is truly an amazing women. I am looking for my first home and looking for a home is very stressful at any age, I am younger and I told her that I am looking because I do want to buy a house within the next year and did not want to jump into things, with her knowing that she has helped me so much and gave me the knowledge that I need so that I when I do find my first dream home I’m ready, I definitely will be going through Dalia Cortez for my first home.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dee Dee Cortez for all her work in selling our home. This was the first time for my wife and I to sell a home and of course we had tons of questions. Dee Dee patiently walked us through the process, carefully explaining how selling a home work and what to expect. She stayed in contact with us throughout the process and giving us updates with any news. After only a few weeks we received an offer and even though it was a holiday, Dee Dee called us right away to let us know the good news. Again, she helped us throughout the process making sure that everything was on schedule and moving smoothly. Lastly at closing, she was right there helping to answer all our final questions. I highly recommend Dee Dee Cortez to buy or sell your property. You’ll be lucky to work with her. Thanks Dee Dee, Norbert & Desere Rivera.

When my wife and I were looking to buy a house in Calallen or Tuloso area, we checked lots of possible realtor options. In the end, we went with DEE DEE because of the reviews on Zillow, and we have to say we were totally glad we did!! Our realtor was DEE DEE Cortez, and she was absolutely wonderful! We were first time home buyers and didn’t know anything about how it worked, but DEE DEE was really great at walking us through the process, and by the end we felt really comfortable with what to look, and what steps were involved. She was also super responsive whenever we had questions, walked with us through a bunch of homes, and gave us great advice the whole time. With her help, we managed to close on a beautiful house that we love, and could not have been happier with our experiences with DEE DEE. We would use DEE DEE again in a heartbeat!

Future Buyers: As a first time buyer I really had no clue of where to start and what the important questions i needed answered before putting in a offer or deciding if a home was a good fit for me or not. At first I went with an agent I had never researched but I “thought” we had a connection. Before anything decide whether or not the agent has the best interest at heart for you whether its as a seller or a buyer. My first agent kept telling me I was going to lose the house and I needed to put an offer over asking with every home I had a glimpse interest in. I quickly realized I was going no where with her and found DEE DEE Cortez after calling into her office to ask for a home. I met her at a home I was interested in and not only did she explain the home buying process crystal clear but she also pointed out things in the home that were good and bad. DEE DEE really knows what she’s doing and she is not PUSHY in anyway on buying the first home right away. When buying a home you want the realtor to be persistent and reachable. She would let me know if she was going to be unreachable for a couple of hours but she always found a way to communicate with me. I did see about 4 to 5 homes with DEE DEE and with every single one she gave me her honest opinion on my chances of getting the home in this high demand market and although it wasn’t always the best news to hear at least I wouldn’t get my hopes up on a house that was going to go past my price range. I actually only had to write 1 offers and was accepted because of DEE DEE’s excellent work. She knows how to make your offer competitive and that’s something that is key in the home buying process. She helped me though the whole process from beginning to end and even after the home closed. DEE DEE is a excellent real estate agent in short words. I recommend her to EVERYONE!

DEE DEE was my agent. I bought a new construction property. She was very patient throughout the process. She took the time to explain the buying procedure for new construction homes. She gave me the valuable suggestions while negotiating with builder. I think that definitely gave me better a deal. Not only this, but DEE DEE had been a good adviser in terms of suggesting me from where to buy the appliances etc. I know that DEE DEE is very honest and isn’t pushy. She gives her honest opinions and enables buyers to make the independent decisions. I believe that’s very important to me as a buyer. I would highly recommend DEE DEE as an agent. I’m planning to buy next home in few years and I would definitely hire DEE DEE as our agent.

Mr. & Mrs. Tracy Wagner

It was a pleasure to work with Dalia “DeeDee” Cortez. She made sure that we found the perfect property. We were looking in a new area, which required many long drives and long hours. She always made time for each trip without delays or scheduling conflict. Even when we hit a rough patch, and wanted to give up, DeeDee was very encouraging and stayed with us every step of the way. She was very professional; keeping us posted with daily emails or a phone call and was very prompt in returning our calls and getting information for us. We always felt comfortable with all of her advice. She was very knowledgeable about the area, the process, and the paper work. We never had to worry about questions because she always had the answer

Mr. & Mrs. Roger Garcia

Our experience with DEE DEE was great! She listened to our wants and needs for our first home; She was very prompt with finding listings that matched our criteria. DEE DEE was also amazing when negotiating the sales price for our first home. She was able to get our house twenty percent under the asking price. She remained professional in spite of discourteous attitude by the seller’s realtor. We plan on using DEE DEE for our next property purchase.

On behalf of my family, I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge a job well done by DEE DEE Cortez. We recently bought a home in Royal Creek Estates and Mrs. Cortez was our sales agent. We were impressed with the honesty and integrity in which Mrs. Cortez conducted herself throughout the sales process. She had our best interest at heart, and was there for us twenty-four hours a day to answer any questions we may have had. Her knowledge of real estate and the real estate process involved, made each step of the transaction that much easier. Her patience and demeanor were greatly appreciated. We were 100% satisfied in our deal. We wanted to take a moment to single out a noteworthy individual. In the future we would not hesitate to use DEE DEE Cortez again for any of our real estate needs.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ResponsivenessDee Dee did a great job of educating and keeping my wife and I informed throughout the whole home-buying process. She answered any and all questions about contracts and negotiations. She also did a walkthrough with us to help us find any small or big issues that needed attention prior to our moving-in by the builder. We felt confident in her expertise and feel like we really got a great deal on our home. It was our first time buying a house. She really did a wonderful job simplifying the complicated process of purchasing a home. We would absolutely recommend Dee Dee to anyone looking for help in the home-buying or selling process. She will do her best to make sure that you're taken care of and you do want her on your side
