My name is Delphine Mulligan and I've been a real estate broker in the Los Angeles South Bay since 2003, helping buyers, sellers, and real estate investors accomplish their real estate goals.
Ex-REO Asset Manager, I have supervised the sale of hundreds of foreclosed properties throughout the United States. Today, I am an independent real estate broker, investor, and rehabber.
I was born in France in a real estate family. My father was an owner operator of a Century 21 agency in Paris and my mother a real estate developer.
After graduating from Paris law school, I did my internship in a US law firm, then obtained my MBA from the University of Dallas. I moved to Los Angeles to work in a start-up on a H1B visa. I was Operations Manager there for six years, in the import-export industry.
I obtained my California broker license in 2003, in the midst of the real estate boom. As the real estate market started to heat up in 2005, I advised my clients to stay away from adjustable rate loans that I found too risky. Most of my clients were able to keep their homes as a result.
A year before the sub-prime crisis, my husband passed away and I became a single mom with a 2-year old boy.
Soon after, foreclosures started to flood the market. Sensing a new opportunity there, I joined an asset management company. My role as an asset manager was to liquidate these foreclosed homes as fast as possible and for the highest profit.
Today, the Los Angeles market is again at an all time high. We have surpassed the peak of 2007 and most people are priced out of the South Bay. Foreign investors have been buying a lot since 2010, paying cash and contributing to steady price increases. Many locals whose salaries haven’t gone up in years are either relocating to other states, or sharing a home with their parents or roommates...
But the market is still going strong due to the attractiveness of sunny California, the influx of foreign investors, and the historically low interest rates.
What is Cool Digs? Simply the idea that real estate can be fun, exciting, and rewarding, if you follow the two golden rules:
1. Have a clear vision of what you value most in terms of lifestyle or business objectives.
2. Search for added value, meaning: approach real estate like an investment.
Trained in law, business, and as a life coach, I approach each transaction with its legal, financial, and human ramifications in mind.
I have a proven track record of getting the best deal for my clients, being readily available, explaining, clarifying, sharing information, anticipating, being proactive, diligent, efficient, creative, communicating promptly and effectively to ease the transaction process, helping clients understand market trends and property valuation, negotiating actively on their behalf, and giving back to them by covering some of their closing costs.
Sellers can expect an accurate property valuation, a strong Zillow presence, open houses, and a discounted commission structure. My goal is for you to NET more.
With buyers, I will be targeting precisely the homes that match your criteria, finding the best properties for your given budget, and giving you access to a highly professional team of bankers and loan brokers to procure financing. At the end of the transaction, I will rebate 20% of my commission to you, through escrow.
To investors, I will bring value by informing a smart business decision, understanding the investor's mindset, and providing access to the most affordable and ethical private financing available today.
If you are ready to sell or buy, I look forward to working with you. I want to earn your business by working hard for you, and showing you how real estate can benefit you.
To discuss your real estate goals, please call me at (310) 318-4784 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to speaking with you.
