In August of 2014 we came down to Florida to look for a new winter home. We had already picked something out in another community, but on the recommendation of a friend, decided to look at Delaire. As soon as we saw the building and renovating that was going on at Delaire, we knew that we had to give Delaire serious consideration. Suzanne and Steven Block invited us to dinner and for a round of golf.. We saw how friendly everyone was that first night. Delaire had everything we were looking forno tee times for golf, a new fitness centre, and a new clubhouse. Suzanne showed us a beautiful, fully renovated home on the golf course and we were sold! They were there for us throughout the processfrom buying the house, to dealing with our builder, to including us in events and introducing us to new people. They are professionals in every way and go beyond what you expect from your real estate agent. And they were right. Delaire is a wonderful community.

We recently bought and sold homes long distance through Suzanne Block. No stress, no concerns. She is the most skillful and professional Realtor I have encountered with a wealth of knowledge. I have and will continue to recommend Suzanne whenever asked for a recommendation for a GREAT Realtor!

Suzanne Block is an extremely knowledgeable professional who we met when we wanted to look at property in Delaire Country Club. I consider us very fortunate to have met her since she is familiar with all the available property in Delaire and is an invaluable source of information about the club and the surrounding area. She was always available to us when we needed her and her expertise gave us guidance and confidence in our decision-making. We responded to her and her calm manner and patience. I would be happy, in fact, I would strongly encourage, anyone who is a potential buyer for a home in Delaire, to contact Suzanne. She is personable and fun along with all of her professionalism!

Sometimes you just have to get lucky. And so it was when we met Suzanne Block and Larry Lidov (Lang Realty).
They listened rather than talked and soon understood who we were and which communities would best fit our needs and personalities. Before long, we settled on Delaire C.C., which is small yet provides an active social life along with golf.
After that, it was easy. Suzanne and Larry continued to listen while we shared our likes and dislikes about each property shown. They guided us rather than sold us making the final decision come more quickly than we expected.
It was after we were in contract, that Suzanne and Larry went into overdrive. As we were 1500 miles north and could not run to Florida at a moment’s notice, they observed the inspection and reviewed the results with us. We determined that certain repairs needed to be done before move-in day; Suzanne and Larry helped arrange for contractors. To top things off they went back to the house after the final walk through was completed just to make sure nothing had changed. It hadn’t and we have been happy homeowners in Delaire for two months.
We cannot thank Suzanne and Larry enough for their guidance and over-the-top service.

Debbie and I wanted to drop you a quick note to Thank You once again for everything you and your team did to help us purchase our new home here in Delaire.
You did an outstanding job from the start, showing us many homes in Delray including communities outside of Delaire. Your attention to detail and great advise during and in the negotiation process assured us we got everything we wanted, as well as making sure all items included were correct and accounted for. The closing went without a hitch all thanks to you!
The “Delaire Family” is everything you said it would be. We have been welcomed by warm friendly people, with a great country club offering something for everyone. The food is just fantastic as advertised! As you know, we love living here year round now and we look forward to many happy years to come.
Thanks once again for everything! You’re the best! If there is ever anything we can do for you, never hesitate to ask!

Several years ago Claire Abrams was the selling agent on a house I bought in Delaire Country Club. When I first met Claire and Delaire, I was looking at many golfing communities in South Palm Beach County, and was not sure where I wanted to live. Initially Claire showed me many homes of varying sizes, views, and dcor at Delaire, and a few at Bocaire. I was not sure if Delaire was the place for me, so I continued to look.
But I never forgot about the community at Delaire, and the enthusiasm that Claire showed for the life style, people and amenities here, and eventually came back to look at Delaire again several months later. If it weren’t for Claire, I probably would have just forgotten about Delaire, but this tiny energetic lady was unforgettable.
When I came back, I probably looked at 10 homes in the same day, and when we finished, Claire was ready to show me 10 more, if I wanted. I eventually narrowed it down to two, which I had my architect look at, because I was planning extensive renovations. With only one of them available after a couple of weeks, I made an offer, through my (buyer’s) realtor, which after some negotiation on Claire’s part with the sellers, was accepted. Interestingly during the inspection, we found toxic mold throughout the house, so I made the decision to tear it down and rebuild, or not buy it. Claire then had the very tough job of making her sellers understand that the purchase price would have to drop substantially, which she accomplished with dexterity. She may be diminutive, but when necessary Claire is as tough as required.
I would have expected that Claire’s job as selling agent would have ended with closing, which it did. But Claire’s efforts did not. After my house was built, Claire made every effort to get me involved in the community, to meet people, and to enjoy the activities that Delaire offered. Claire is one of those unique individuals who fits into any group, but stands out by making everyone feel comfortable and included. Today I am proud to call Claire my friend. I am also proud to say that if I ever chose to sell my home the first phone call I would make is to Claire. In fact I did make that phone call once. My brother and sister-in-law used Claire as their buying agent when they bought a house right up the street from me in Delaire.
It’s hard to understand the impact that one person can make on a community, but Claire is Delaire in many ways. She is responsible for bringing many of us into the community. She continued to keep Delaire growing and evolving during a difficult downturn in the national economy, avoiding as deep a slump as occurred in other nearby communities. She is as sharp and as witty as ever. And Claire is beloved by her Delaire.
I would be pleased to discuss this with you at your convenience.
