Chris Sullivan was awesome!

Very responsive throughout our selling process. Our house was uniquely difficult to market, but he stuck through and made it happen. Very responsive, always thinking of new ideas for improving the marketability of our property. We will definitely be utilizing him for our new home purchase, when the time comes. We could not have been more pleased with his work as an agent!

We really appreciated Chris' honest feedback on properties or areas.

We never felt like he was just trying to sell us a house, he really wanted us to find the right house for our family. Any questions we sent his way were answered quickly and he never made us feel like the novices we are, it was our first time buying a home. Chris was helpful even beyond the process and met us at the house in order to get contractors bids before we officially closed.

Working with Chris was great!

From the moment we met him, we felt he was very attentive and honest. It was our second home purchase and we knew Chris had our best interest in mind. Chris gave us honest feedback based on our needs on every house we saw and answered questions at any time of the day. If you are looking for a realtor that will do his best to make himself available to you at a moment's notice and negotiate on your terms, Chris Sullivan will not let you down. If you are looking for a house in the Glendale/La Crescenta/Burbank area, this is your realtor.

Carlos and Siroun

Chris is a hard worker, knows the process from both the seller and buyer perspectives, and was always available to answer any questions that we had.

His advice resulted in us selling our home for well over asking price.

I would like to take this opportunity to highlight the extraordinary lengths Mr.

Sullivan went to on my behalf and express my complete satisfaction with him as my real estate agent. I am an out of state homeowner with a property in the San Fernando Valley. I have rented the house out for the past 12 years through a property management company. Last June I was notified that my tenant was moving out and decided to sell the house instead of renting it out again. I have not been back to California since 2009 and had no idea who to call about putting my property on the market. I spoke with a real estate neighbor of mine in Oregon and she said she would make inquiries for me. Soon after, she suggested I contact Chris Sullivan. My first contact with Chris was very positive so I contracted with Dilbeck to represent me. On June 30, I was advised that the tenant had vacated the premises and on that same day Chris was at the property doing a visual inspection. The very next day, Chris got the keys from the property manager and was back at the property doing an inside evaluation. The following day Chris had a cleanup team on site for estimates and bought new door locks and installed them himself. Within a week both the inside and outside were being cleaned and the painter ready to begin. During the next two weeks, professional photographs were taken for the listing, including drone shots, the gas meter was brought up to code, and Chris got plants for the front yard curb appeal. When the inspector found that a Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Detector in the house was not compliant with the Los Angeles 9A/Certificate of Compliance, Chris bought and installed one (saving me $63). Of course there was a flood of paperwork for me to sign and Chris spent over two hours on the phone with me, going over each page and making the process as painless as possible. During one of these phone calls, Chris was suffering from a bad head cold, yet he spent an hour and 15 minutes going through documents until I was satisfied. Really quite impressive. 18 days after first getting the keys, Chris was already scheduling showings and less than a week after that he had 14 offers in hand. Chris answered every email and returned every phone call and text as soon as I sent them. Several times when I called he was at the property taking care of some loose end. When unexpected issues came up, he was right there with solutions. He even went to bat for me with the property management company, contacting them via email several times on my behalf, trying to get part of the tenant's security deposit to cover the a portion of the cleanup costs. In the end, he saved me $1400. He was also in contact with my 1031 company, my escrow company, and my real estate agent in Oregon, clarifying anything that I had concerns about. With updates on the progress of the sale every step of the way, we closed exactly when Chris said we would when escrow opened. All of this accomplished, from start to finish, in 7 weeks and I never moved from my armchair in Oregon. And, I should mention, the house sold for $60,000 over the asking price. Even my real estate agent here in Oregon was thoroughly impressed with the dedication shown time and time again by Chris Sullivan. This is a freely given and unsolicited review of my real estate experience with Chris Sullivan and Dilbeck Realty. I cannot recommend Mr. Sullivan highly enough and could not have wished for a better outcome on the sale of my property in California.

We went with Ralph.

..He knew we were planning to start the sales process. He reached out without being too aggressive. He seemed so well-connected with this neighborhood. And was known to a few friends who recommended him. We were pleased he was representing us. Sadly, he passed away early in the process. We were lost for a day and very concerned about moving forward until we received a call from Chris who is part of Ralph’s group(and a relative). The buyer’s realtor was very nice and as helpful as she ethically could be with us and she spoke very highly of Chris Sullivan which made us more accepting of him taking over. He did an incredible job. He showed great respect for Ralph as did Sandi. With Chris, it was a seamless transition from our end. No doubt uncharted territory for Chris. So, after 1 full day of great concern about what lies ahead...He stepped in and brilliantly guided us all the way. Like Ralph, Chris's comfort with and knowledge of the area was very reassuring...especially in the circumstances he and we were unexpectedly facing. He updated us constantly (which we encouraged!). For a variety of reasons this home sale is more important than any previous home transaction. Chris Sullivan has done an outstanding job! We would've gladly recommended Ralph Suarez and we will gladly recommend Chris and hopefully he or Dilbeck will reach out to us for that very reason!

After doing an internet search that narrowed down my list to 8 candidates, I called Chris to start the screening process.

He graciously spent 45 minutes answering all my questions and giving me feedback that I hadn't even considered as a new home buyer. I was convinced he would be our realtor form that moment forward. He was informative and genuine from the very outset. He was on top of everything and would stay in constant communication and would give frequent updates on what was going on. He was NEVER too busy to answer questions! Chris was a total professional. Service does not get any better than what Chris provided. I could not be more pleased with the experience I had with Chris! It was a true blessing to be able to have called Chris our Realtor! He has made a client for life as I would never choose to go with another Realtor as long as he is in the business. He truly is in the businessmen to help and serve others. Thank you for everything Chris! You made it happen!

Chris was on top of everything.

He was able to not only anticipate any issues, but was proactive in finding solutions to those issues. Chris is true pro in and out. He never made us feel anxious about a decision and was able to walk us through every question we had. Chris made us feel at ease about every aspect of selling our home. His knowledge of the area, real estate and overall demeanor made selling our home a rather stress free experience.

I grew up in La Canada and know Chris Sullivan through playing baseball in the local youth leagues and high school.

We both graduated from LCHS. When I found out he was with Dilbeck, we decided without hesitation to have him represent the sale. We considered no other agents. It was reassuring that we listed with Dilbeck as I know the amount of local LCF history behind the company and that was also important to me.

Best realtor EVER!

! I had been looking for homes in the La Crescenta, Sunland, Tujunga area for a few months with another realtor. After getting frustrated I went into an open house in La Crescenta just to look for myself at homes in the area. Chris Sullivan was showing the house with an associate. The house, sad to say was out of my price range. However I did meet Chris who seemed very knowledgable, informative and friendly about what was available in the area. The thing I liked immediately is that the friendliness was not fake and was very far from pushy. Chris did all the leg work to find me a great house. He did not waste my time looking at a bunch of homes that were not close to what I would want to buy. Plus he seemed to really research properties and had a good idea of how to negotiate each property. I felt he was really on my side and recommended what he thought was good and maybe not so good as we looked at various homes. We put in a few offers but ended up finding a house on the north side of Sunland against the hills. In short I got a great deal! A great house in a great quiet secluded location. Even after the purchase Chris has made himself available to answer questions and offer advice. Thanks Chris!

I really cannot say enough great things about what a pleasure it was to work with Chris.

I was going through the most difficult time of my life and was surely over-emotional on more than one occasion, but Chris was there to talk me off the ledge and walk me through everything with compassion, respect, and a funny story to make me smile. I am grateful to have had him with me on this Journey.
