“We consider it a privilege to have been selected as the brokerage to represent the seller of this significant property,” commented John Hodnett, President/Broker-Owner of Lila Delman Real Estate in the press release. “Lori had the home under agreement in just over 4 months, an achievement in and of itself as days on market at this price point are typically much longer.
