Below you will find testimonials from our wonderful clients, both past and present.
Della Booth is beyond awesome! We were absentee landlords and were devastated after a property mgt firm allowed our house to be destroyed. While we were plotting our next steps a flyer for Time Realty Services/Della Booth arrived in the mail. That’s when our nightmare began to turn around. Della immediately shared reputable contractors who she trusted to make the necessary repairs. She walked us thru what to do and equally important what NOT to do to prepare the property for sale. Once the property hit the market showings were non stop and she kept us abreast every step of the way. A week before we were to close on the sale of the property a setback violation was discovered and a variance would be required. Again Della Booth guided us thru the process and actually attended the zoning boards variance hearing on our behalf. The variance was granted and we closed on the sale 2 days after that. If you want a real estate agent who doesn’t quit despite the challenges I strongly recommend Della Both and Time Realty Services!!
Sam Ringgold, Seller, February 2019
Della is such a wonderful real estate agent. Having worked in the escrow side of real estate myself, it is hard to find really great agents like her. She is very genuine, knowledgeable and patient. She doesn’t push you to make a quick decision and is quick to respond to questions/concerns. We will definitely always use her and recommend her to others.
Amy Mal, January 2019
We found Della Booth and Time Realty through an internet realtor recommendation service and I cannot believe how lucky we were. Our goal was a waterfront home with a pool.
What initially made Della stand out to us, was her involvement in the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce. It let us know that she was directly involved with the community and knew not only the current status but the past and future of this wonderful community.
We started our correspondence two years prior to our retirement, and Della stayed with us and supplied us information on the market conditions as well as homes to view during that full two-year process. When we finally arrived we were extremely well prepared, all because of her communication with us.
Della works her tail off to complete the whole process and she made it a wonderful experience, even when I felt overwhelmed, she brought me back down to earth in a manner that made me even more confident in our choice.
Della is well informed and has her finger on the pulse on the local market. She did everything we needed and more.
She sold us on this area, and we are extremally happy in our purchase.
We now think of Della as our friend and not just our realtor.
If you are looking for a Realtor in this area, you cannot do any better than Della Both at Time Realty.
William and Tina Mulrine, Buyers, August 2018
My fiancée and I were first-time homebuyers with absolutely no knowledge or experience with the process of buying a home. Della had handled her parent’s move a few months previous, so we went to her to help us. We absolutely cannot say enough wonderful things! She was very attentive to listen to our wants and needs, and very patient with all of our many, many questions throughout the process. She always made sure we understood what we were doing and laid out our options very clearly. Very excellent experience with Della and will recommend her to anyone looking for real estate services!
Jody and Kirsten, Buyers, June 2018
I just want to say again, thank you, for all that you have done for us to make this house purchase possible. Both Liz and I have worked our entire professional careers in jobs that are people centered, and we recognize quality work when we see it, and that is exactly what we have witnessed throughout the entire process of both buying and selling a house when you have been our agent. You might want to add to your advertisement, “I don’t work “9” to “5”, I work start to finish, and then some.”
Blan & Liz, Buyers, January 2018
Thank you Della for helping us to find our new place to call home. Deciding to move from Illinois we never could have imagined being able to work with someone so well from so far away. Your knowledge and advice on circumstances was always right on point. You were always quick to respond to any questions we had. Felt like working with a friend and not just a business acquaintance. We highly recommend Della and Time Realty for all the help, knowledge and professionalism we were given.
Mike and Lori, Buyers, September 2017
Mark and I wanted to thank you for all that you did for us during our transition from Charlotte to Punta Gorda. YOu were such a pleasure to work with and we appreciate your patience with us as we looked at so many houses! We believe we have found the perfect home for us and are enjoying it immensely. Thanks again for all of your help.
Mark, Cathy & Kristen Kitchens, Buyers, September 2017
Della listed our home and was outstanding to work with. What a difference it makes choosing the right real estate agent! She has a great work ethic, which in our opinion is hard to find these days. Della exceeded our expectations and kept us informed every step of the way. We will highly recommend Della to all our friends to represent them in their real estate transactions.
Howard and Leslie Gilbert, Sellers, March 2017
I listed my residential lot in Punta Gorda’s Burnt Store Village with Della Booth in June 2015 when the market wasn’t moving very much. Della kept me apprised of real estate trends in the area over the next 18 months and just sold the lot for very near the asking price. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell residential property in the area.
Sue C, Seller, Feb 2017
Della, It was just about a year ago when someone passed along your name to us. Little did we know then that you would be the perfect person to help us find a place to call home in Punta Gorda. We were comfortable with you from our first conversation. You have provided us with so much more than a Realtor service. You have served as a tour guide, a sounding board a “google go to”, and a friend. Thank you for all of your help and support along the way in this journey of ours. We appreciate you!
Will and Deb, Buyers, Jan 2017
Della, We can’t thank your enough for helping us to sell our home. Even though we did not actually meet until the closing we felt like we were always working with a friend. We appreciate your knowledge and expertise while you guided us through the selling process. Thanks so much for all you did!
Ken & Robin H, Sellers, Oct 2016
Della—-know it has taken a while for me to send –been crazy BUT just want to thank for all your help, knowledge and hard work/many hours to make our “deal” to get done. I know it was not easy—between the sellers and the buyer (ME!), we drove you crazy and you put in many hours to make it work. I am not “around the corner” but you met with everyone that was needed and made it happen. Thanks and hope to see you soon. If ANYONE questions your efforts and knowledge, TELL them to call me. You even impressed our friends that met you at the house before we flew down and they KNOW real estate agents in FL. Thanks again—
Dean B, Buyer, Sept 2016
What a delight it was to have Della as my realtor ! From beginning to end, she took care of everything imaginable…and more. The best !
Carol A, Buyer, Atlanta, GA, April 2016
Della, It was a pleasure having you represent me in the selling of my home in Punta Gorda. When I needed a general contractor to make repairs, you had the name of one. When my carpets needed cleaning, you had the name of a carpet cleaning company. And when my house needed a final cleaning, you were right there with the name of a reputable cleaning person. Your frequent phone calls and emails kept me up to date on the selling of my home. Being a long distance seller this was important to me. I especially like receiving the feedback after each showing. Anyone who has you as their agent is truly in good hands!
Barbara Andrews, Seller, Glastonbury, CT, April 2016
Della, Thank you so much for walking me through buying a home and selling a home. I felt like I was doing this with an old friend. You made a stressful time painless.
I highly recommend you to all I know and don’t know. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Karen P, Buyer and Seller, Port Charlotte, FL, April 2016
Della Booth was professional from start to finish. Moreover, she is a pleasure to work with. She was always quick to respond to my calls and emails regardless of the day or time, and kept me informed throughout the entire sales process. Her advice was very valuable and I always knew she was looking after my best interests. Della was referred to me by a friend who had just experienced a pleasant and successful house sale with her as his agent. I can add to the accolades for Della and would highly recommend her as your agent.
Diane Gervais, Seller, Ottawa, Ontario, April 2016
Della, I want to thank you for all the effort and help that you put into the sale of my house. It was a real pleasure dealing with you! You pointed out all the little things I could do to make improvements to the place and helped me stage it to look comfortable and appealing to the eye. You are very knowledgeable and skilled as a Realtor and at the top of your trade. I would gladly recommend you to anyone who is looking for the best realtor around. You were great!!
Thank you Dave Philibotte, Port Charlotte, FL Seller February 2016
We recently sold our home in less than 40 days with the help of Della! She was professional and informative throughout the entire process. She had special touches such as a professional photographer taking the photos of the house including aerial views which looked great on the MLS listing. She was available at all hours of the day and responded to our emails, calls and texts promptly. She was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommended her.
Thanks again Della! You’re awesome!
Dan and Belinda Latham, Punta Gorda, FL, Sellers December 2015
Tanise became my real estate agent in August and I found her to be very professional, helpful and accommodating. My wife and I were looking for a condo for retirement purposes and Tanise gave us multiple options to choose from according to our needs. In a few, short months -we made our purchase. We are very happy with the location of our condo and its specifications. Tanise took her time and was a joy to work with!
Mike and Becky Daubenmire, Buyers, Lancaster, Ohio October 2015
We highly recommended using the services of Della Booth. We just purchased a lot in Punta Gorda from California. Going into the search and purchase we thought the process was going to be difficult given the distance but Della made the process very easy. She was quick to respond to our questions, provided valuable information and made the process a pleasant one. We are as pleased with choice of realtors as we are with our property choice.
Tom and Jana M. Yuba City, CA, Buyer, October 2015
I wish to express my appreciation for the professionalism shown by Ms. Della Booth during my recent use of her and Time-Realty services to sell my land.Considering the transaction was a long distance for me, I reside in an Northeastern state; I was extremely pleased in the efficient manner the transaction progressed.I was lucky to have Ms. Booth recommended to me, and based on my experience, I would highly recommend her expertise
Paul Penerian, Seller, September 2015
My husband and I recently purchased a condo in Punta Gorda. We chose to work with Della Booth from Time Realty. We previously worked with her on a vacation rental and we were very pleased with how smooth that went. Buying was totally different, what a scary venture, but Della was excellent in calming our nerves and leading us through all the steps to ownership. We enjoyed working with her for many reasons; her professionalism, her promptness in returning emails, texts and/or phone calls (even when she was out of town on business), her knowledge and her genuine kindness. She was a pleasure to work with.
John and Deborah Marcucci, Buyer, September 2015
I chose Della from a list of agents supplied by a commercial agent finder, followed up with my own internet checks, so was not at all surprised to find her capable and informative, as other reviewers have stated. What I can add is this: After the closing she treated us to lunch, over which we discussed things I hoped to have done in the two days before heading back north. One thing, if time permitted, was to have the carpet cleaned. Della recommended a reliable carpet cleaner and even offered to drive to the house to let him in, in the event that we couldn’t get it scheduled prior to my departure. That is indeed service “from start to finish” – and even a little beyond. Thank you, Della.
Anne Scrivner, Buyer, August 2015
We have used many, many realtors in our married life….having moved over 10 times, and Della’s service at TIME Realty was by far and away, the best we have EVER encountered! When she says “she doesn’t work 9 to 5, she works until the job is done” is no understatement. Her knowledge of the local real estate market is exemplary and her diligence in getting the job done is top notch. Plus, she is one of the most honest people we have ever met in business. If you want a fantastic realtor, who knows her stuff inside and out…….get the best, get Della! We’re sure glad we did! Thanks for all your hard work, Della, it was a pleasure working with you!
Bob & Gaileen Conover, Sellers, August 2015
Della Booth, with Time Realty, has been an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the purchasing process of our property. Her attention to detail and due diligence throughout the search and final selection exceeded our expectations. Time Realty has that “Special Something” that sets them apart from the rest. We highly recommend Della and her team to anyone looking to purchase real estate.
John & Donna Abbate, Investment Buyer, May 2015
Della Booth was an excellent agent. We worked well together and found a condo that I liked within a short time.
Mae Nelson, Home Buyer , May 2015
We love our new neighborhood and home! After a phone call from a very professional and pleasant Della, we were set up with a portal to receive homes to pick and choose from, which showed her what we wanted. Meeting with this lovely lady, was very warm and friendly. She found us our home in one day. Her experience in real estate helped us through the purchase, guided us with the process and made the purchase simple. I highly recommend Della for purchasing a home in Florida!
Susan Stearns, Home Buyer, August 2014
Della helped my husband and I figure out what was most important to us for our next home. We didn’t exactly have similar requirements on some aspects and Della very quickly found a property that was the perfect compromise! She’s easy to work with and if she doesn’t have the answer to question, she quickly finds it.
Jennifer Newman Home Buyer June 2014
We cannot say enough about how pleased we were with our experience. Thirteen showings, three contracts and a great sale all in three weeks time. Could not have asked for more.
Sharon, Home Seller June 2014
This is a letter of commendation/endorsement for Ms. Della Booth who has recently helped us with the sale of our house in Port Charlotte, FL. Della was recommended to us by a friend and she did an excellent job. The sale was made a bit more complicated as we live overseas and were not present for any of the process. Della lived up to her
Motto of working start to finish and often corresponded with us on weekends as well as during the working week. Our house was on the market for only eleven days and we had a buyer who met our price requirements. Della is very active in Punta Gorda civil affairs and really knows the territory. We can without reservation recommend her for any real estate transactions, and we will certainly ask her to be our agent should, in the future, we be looking to buy or sell a house in this area of Florida.
H. Blan Palmer & Liz Dunham, Sellers June 2014
Thank you so much for listing our property and so patiently guiding us through the process of pricing and selling. You have always been available anytime we had a question or concern and you are very knowledgeable about Charlotte County. Your efficiency with the paperwork and with the closing agent have been very much appreciated. I am so glad the sell went through and that it is a happy ending for all parties. Thanks again for all your time and guidance.
Tampa Lighthouse for the Blind
Della Booth is a top-notch realtor! We’ve always wanted to move to Florida and her professionalism, expertise, and guidance were instrumental in making that dream a reality! We found Della online while living in Michigan and she helped us secure a rental property sight unseen. It was the perfect home for us while we learned the area, and in less than a year we were unlocking the door to our dream home! Della truly does “work start to finish” as her website says. She kept us updated on everything that was happening and kept us on track throughout the home buying process. Della was able to refer us to many skilled and trustworthy professionals in the area. She is very knowledgeable and we would gladly recommend her for all your real estate needs. Della loves what she does and it shows. -Aaron and Nicole S., Buyers May 2014
After spending our careers in law enforcement in Pennsylvania, my wife and I wanted to retire to the Gulf coast of Florida. After choosing the Punta Gorda area, but not having any recommendations for a realtor, we started searching the internet, and chose Della Booth of TIME Realty Services. We didn’t know it then, but soon found out that we had made what we feel was the best decision ever, choosing Della. From the beginning, Della worked tirelessly to find us the perfect condo, working days, nights, and weekends, showing us condos, answering our questions and phone calls, which were numerous, and just making this whole ‘looking for a retirement’ condo a pleasant process. Della definitely made our retirement dream come true. We would recommend and encourage anyone to choose Della Booth/TIME Realty for their real estate needs. -John and Pam Barber, Buyer April 2014
The consummate professional, Della Booth truly worked “from start to finish” as her motto states. She was accessible at all hours and responded immediately to our questions. Her market analysis and suggestions for staging our property were spot on. Della’s professionalism resulted in a quick and seamless sale! -Ed and Linda Bailey, Sellers, October 2013
Della, I would like to thank you for all your help in finding a home. When we first started looking in your area we knew nothing and found you on the internet.From the start your honesty and straightforward attitude put us at ease and made us trust that you were acting in our best interest. The private tours of Punta Gorda,Cape Coral and Port Charlotte, was quite helpful in getting to know that area in a short amount of time. Your patience, understanding and willingness to answer any and all question made our home buying experience a breeze. Even when we asked to look at 20 homes in 3 days. Since we could only look on weekends flying down from Washington DC. You did not flinch and came totally prepare on all the homes
You were there to guide us through the Pitfalls i.e. flood insurance, the new FEMA rules, along with State, county and community laws and regulations. Lastly even after we closed. You are still helping us, finding contractors, changing over utilities and even showing us some of the best restaurants in the area.
Thank you again you made this whole experience easy and we will definitely recommend you to everyone searching for a home. -Earl and Suna West, Buyers, November 2013
Della was wonderful to work with. Buying a home in Florida while living in Massachusetts is not easy. Della answered my many questions in a timely manner with knowledge and expertise. She is so kind and pleasant that I am thrilled to have found her. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in the area.She rearranged her schedule to accommodate my coming to Florida from Massachusetts to look at properties. She showed 15-20 homes to me in one day. She is awesome. She helped to negotiate thousands of dollars less than the original asking price and saved us closing costs by explaining how to buy with cash. Carol Godinho, Buyer, July 2013
Working with Della has been a pleasure from the start. I needed to find the perfect condo for my parents, preferably close to my home. Della was quick to determine exactly what was important both to my parents and to me. Asking the right questions, Della was able to guide us and provide us with many units to consider that met our criteria and were within my price range. The whole process was seamless and stress free! I highly recommend Della to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, professional and friendly realtor. -Marjorie Benson, Buyer July 2013
The professionalism and the responsive nature you possess are exemplary. We would recommend your services to anyone who would like to speak with us. – Brent Sedgewick, Seller July 2013

She was professional with a personal touch. My husband and I live in NY and could not travel down to Florida. Della arranged everything for us. She was professional with a personal touch. She made herself available above and beyond business hours. Our closing went off with no surprises and made our experience stress free. I would not hesitate to use her services again. – Larry & Elizabeth B.
Della is very professional. Living in Germany, I thought it would be difficult buying a house in Florida. From the beginning I only had contact with Della using email. I quickly recognized that Della is very professional. She is not only interested in selling houses but also in having 100% content customers. I would every time buy a house with her. – Dr. T and Family, Germany
She does what she says shes going to do and on your time schedule

Most important….she does what she says shes going to do and on your time schedule. My husband and I have recommended her highly to our neighbors and friends. – Lynn and Tom M, Sellers March 2012
Della Booth is an exceptional Realtor! As first time buyers in 2009 she looked out for our best interests through each step of the process. We had a lot of questions, and she had all the answers. We got a great deal in a tough market, thanks to Della. Three years later we needed to sell our house quickly due to a job change and move to another state. We called Della. She swooped in and begin to work immediately. She helped clean, arrange furniture, and gave simple easy-to-follow instructions to get our home ready for showings. We moved just after listing, confident that Della would take care of things and keep us updated. Our expectations were exceeded! Our house sold very quickly- on the market less than a month!–We even made a profit! Della handled it all keeping us informed of everything. We were able to finalize the transaction from 1200 miles away, and thanks to her, it was seamless. We can´t thank Della enough for all of her help. – David and Rebecca F., Sellers
