Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Brandon, MS.
From the first moment we met Delayne, we just fell in love with her. She was so very friendly, helpful and very, very knowledgeable. Immediately, we felt so comfortable and at ease with her; it was as if we had known her all our lives. She was eager to accomodate us and guide us through each step of the process of purchasing our home. My Dad had a saying, "As easy as falling off a greased log backward". That is exactly how Delayne conducted all the events involved in our real estate purchase. It was so easy and non-stressful. Her warm, friendly personality made us feel like part of her family. Everything from the home inspection, including finding people to make the necessary repairs and assuring they were done in a timely and satisfactory manner to making arrangements for the closing could not have gone more smoothly. If we had questions or concerns, she was always there for us; always returned our calls promptly. Then, to top it all off, when we were in the midst of all the chaos that goes along with making a move after having been in the same place for 40 years, she and her husband showed up with a wonderful lunch for everyone. Yes, I would wholeheartedly recommend Delayne McGowan to anyone who is looking for a GREAT real estate agent. Not only is she an excellent realtor who has her clients' best interests at heart, she is also a sweet, kind and generous person.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 in Bayridge, Jackson, MS.
Delayne responded to my inquiry right away and walked me through the entire home-buying process. She was always made me feel that I was a prioriity. Denlayne really made my first home buying experience a breeze.
I highly recommend Delayne. She did an excellent job selling our house and negotiating for us to buy a new house. She was very accommodating to our needs and wants. If we asked her for it she tried to get it done for us. She would respond to our calls and text in a timely fashion and she kept us informed on the process and what was going on with the sell of our home and the purchase of our new home.
Delayne handled the sell of our house extremely quick and extremely well. She was on top of everything which made me feel at ease and very confident in her abilities. She also showed/sold us our new home, which we absolutely love! Delayne was an absolute delight to work with. She made the difficult process of the realty world as easy and as smooth as possible. I will definitely be using Delayne again in the future! Not only is she our realtor, but she has become our friend and will remain a friend to us in the future.
I first called Delayne about one of her residential listings that was beautiful and possibly in my price range. She answered her phone right away, asked me what features I liked about the house and neighborhood, my current price range, and if I had been approved for home purchase. That particular house turned out to not be in my price range. However, Delayne took notes immediately on what type of home I was looking for and asked if I had a realtor. I answered yes and replied I was a first time buyer and felt that my previous realtor was not meeting my needs and adequately providing information for all the questions first time home buyers like myself have. After only a few minutes on the phone, I knew Delayne would be patient, trusting, and very knowledgeable in helping me feel secure and happy in the purchasing process. She was a quick and to the point kind of realtor and did I mention, patient, patient, patient. After eight months, countless walk through, and 3 denied offers, I was starting to feel a bit hopeless and frustrated. Not because of Delayne, but because I had not found "The ONE". And even when I thought I had found "THE ONE", the deal had fallen through. Delayne knew I was picky, nervous, and was not going to be 100 percent satisfied until we found "The ONE" with the words SOLD on the paperwork. Little did I know, the next week, she would spot a, For Sale by Owner that had all the bells and whistles I was honestly looking for. This home was much nicer, updated, and had been well cared for and loved. During the walk through, I said to myself, by GOD this is it! I have officially found, “The ONE”. Delayne stayed positive, worked hard to negotiate the seller to meet my bottom line, and to my surprise and delight she sealed the deal and got it sold. In fact, I was so surprised and in shock that the deal had worked out, when she called to tell me, I was speechless. Finally, I would have a house to call home. My home is beautiful and I could not be happier. I am so relieved that the other offers fell through. Thank you Delayne! You helped make my dreams of becoming a homeowner come true. Great work!
