Sharon Nyberg joined Team DeLay in 2017, complementing the team's deep connections within the community and extensive marketing and sales experience. Kevin Laue, Buyer Specialist, joined the team in 2021 rounding out the team with his passion to help people make Central Oregon their home.

Hasson Relocation, ABR

I would highly recommend working with Sharon Nyberg for any real estate needs in Bend. She is very efficient, thorough, responsive and easy to work with. We are out of town buyers and found the process to be smooth and quick, having Sharon to help us. She follows through on everything and keeps in touch constantly. I couldn't ask for a more pleasant experience.

— Amorese Family

Sharon did a great job helping us purchase our home in Bend. She went above and beyond to expedite a quick turnaround. She was knowledgeable about the area. Cant wait to start enjoying our home.

— Cara Stearns Sterbis

Sam was great to work with, very knowledgeable of the greater Bend area and extremely responsive. I cannot state enough how timely he responds to everything, whether it be a question from you, the other agent, title company, etc. He'll also give you his honest opinion. He helped me sell my home in Bend which was vacant at the time it was listed, during the entire close process he would always check on my house to make sure it was safe. Little things like that are why I would overall would highly recommend Sam."

— James E.

Bought our first home with Team DeLay six years ago today. Made the entire experience seamless from end to end, closed on time and made us feel like their first priority the whole way through. Had always heard horror stories about real estate transactions and was a bit nervous jumping in head first but they took care of us and made sure we were satisfied every step of the way. Would place my trust in them again in a heartbeat. A+

— Josh B.

Sam and Team DeLay are simply . . . THE BEST. How many businesses actually DO what they say, WHEN they say (or before!) they're going to do it? Flawless execution of details and timely, proactive communication are the norm in a industry that can be sorely lacking in these areas. And . . . a full price closing in less than 30 days. We'll not hesitate to utilize their services again!

— Michael V.

We recently entrusted Sam Delay to sell our two rental duplexes in Bend and were completely impressed with his excellent service and attention to detail. Sam was an excellent negotiator and stayed in touch with us through a very fast closing period. We would highly recommend Sam to list your next property knowing that he will be attentive to all of your needs.

— Dave & Nancy M.

Thank you Sam and Team Delay for making what can be an overwhelming process much more enjoyable. Sam has been a pleasure to work with and has truly listened and allowed us to come to our decisions understanding as much as we can along the way! We met Sam as we were looking at new construction to purchase and he was the right person to help us get our current house ready and sold quickly. He is professional, hard working and personable. A great combination. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sam, we're just waiting for the chance!!

— Michael & Joni U.

We were on our third home buying adventure when we were fortunate enough to have stumbled upon Sam Delay. He listened to what we wanted, was very professional, but personable as well. We would trust him with any other transactions in the future, and highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home!

— Scott & Chelsea S.

Sam Delay was awesome to work with in the purchase of our first home. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, honest, patient and was quick to provide thorough responses to all of our questions. We have and will continue to recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor. Thanks again Sam!!

— Raul & Shalea Z.

Sam DeLay is personal, professional, negotiates well, is with you through every step, and supports you through every detail. He helped us purchase our first house in Bend, Oregon, and we could not have done it without him.

— Alex & Breezy W.

I had no expectation that my transaction, from inception to completion, would go so smoothly. Surpassing real estate services from Team DeLay!

— David B.

Sam DeLay has become our "family" realtor. He has exhibited nothing less than professionalism combined with compassion; knowledge and patience. He is always willing to help; explain and research whatever is necessary. He keeps us informed each step of the process and all with a smile! We will definitely be recommending him to family and friends.

— Laura T.

Buying a home in Bend seemed like just a dream, until My husband and I were referred to Sam Delay. Sam went above and beyond for us and we gave him a run for his money. Working with us for almost 1 year; he guided us through 4 different home transactions, (3 didn't go through for home inspection complications.)He stayed positive and kept us going the entire time, but was never pushy, like some Realtors can be, he really listened to our wants and needs and and stayed very patient. He treated us like friends, talking with us, never down to us, making us really feel like he was taking the best care he could. He even entertained and made "friends"with our twin 3.5 year olds. Sam has been amazing and has become our family realtor for life. I wouldn't hesitate to refer Sam Delay and his team to anyone. Thank you Sam, you're the best!

— Jeremy & Sarah M

My husband first met Sam DeLay months before I did. That's because I didn't want to move. Finally, I was coerced into meeting Sam and I too fell quickly into a trusting relationship with this man who never pressured, always listened, showed so much patience and acceptance. He would spend hours showing information on points of view. So accessible--amazingly accessible. Kind and positive at every turn. It's such an important relationship on so many emotional fronts and he is a calming influence. He is just the right amount of technical and personal combined. He knows the details are important and he understands the dance between managing different parties. He's extremely fair and reasonable. You always feel like he has your back and acting on your behalf. I trusted Sam at every move and when you have that, you can accept when the news isn't always what you want. There are so many balls in the air on a buy or sell, and he never drops a ball. Watching Sam work, makes me have a whole lot of respect for what good realtors do. What I appreciate about him as much as anything is he is so positive, highest integrity, and always leaves me feeling happier after talking to him. What a blessing and a gift to have had Sam handle our home selection.

— Doug & Julie W.

Moe is the consummate professional and a great person to have in your corner when going into the home-buying "battle"! She guides and advises in a subtle but effective way. Her responsiveness could not be more timely and on the rare occasion she doesn't know the answer to a question or challenge, she is able to tap into her resources and follow up very quickly. Her patience through our process and the variety of strategies we pursued was incredible; we never felt pressured or as if she just wanted to close the deal and move on. Once it was time to close the deal, she went to great lengths to ensure it closed on time, despite the challenges that inevitably pop up. When buying in a competitive and crazy market, Moe keeps her cool and gives a confidence that you’re in good hands!

— Justin & Christina S.

Selling your home or buying a new home is one of the most stressful events people can go through. When you are doing both at the same time, it is doubly so. We were very fortunate to have Maureen (Moe) Kohal of Team Delay at Hasson Company Realtors to help us navigate this process. With every hurdle that came up, Moe was able to help us get over them in a calming and reassuring manner. With her experience and knowledge of the process, she was able to promptly answer any questions we had and solve any problems that arose. I honestly don’t think I would have made it through this process without her. If you are planning on selling your home or buying a new one, I would highly recommend Maureen and Team Delay.

— Maralee & Clinton P.

My experience with Maureen has been an absolute pleasure! From the the very beginning she helped me to hon in on what my needs were by really listening to what I was saying and truly hearing where I was struggling. Not only is Maureen patient, she is very personable, professional and always made me feel like I was never on my own during this very important decision and purchase. I would happily work with her again and recommend her to anyone looking for an honest, extremely knowledgable and truly friendly real estate agent! I'm so happy to say I'm in a house that is the perfect location for me, perfect floor plan & style and I am surrounded by amazing neighbors. I really love my home and I have Maureen to thank for her guidance!

— Julie T.

Relocating to Bend, OR from Colorado after retiring from 47 years in sales, I had the pleasure of working with Maureen to find and purchase a new home. I have always viewed the sales process as first, establishing a relationship of mutual trust and respect with your client, and second, making sure your clients interests remain the top priority, regardless of whether or not that results in a sale. I am happy to say that this is exactly the way that Maureen Kohal worked with us. She is a professional with whom I would not hesitate to work with again!

— Will & kris R.

In a profession where many talk instead of listen, Maureen is refreshingly different. She is not there to SELL you a house but, rather, to find you a home that matches your desired lifestyle.

— Stephen S.

I worked with Moe on the purchase of our new home in Bend. She was professional, proactive and responsive to my schedule. She negotiated a great deal for us and had a wealth of contacts to help me with all the items as we transition to our new life in Bend. Highly recommend team DeLay!

— Chrissy C.

I just wanted you to know how much we appreciated your help in purchasing our home. I have been here for about a week after giving my two weeks notice at work. Didn’t think our trip to Bend in August would involve purchasing a home but I guess that was part of the grand plan. We were very pleased with you, Tim, Mark and Sabrina. You all went out of your way. With a very short notice you were able to make arrangements for us to see homes while we were here on vacation. You also kept us informed about the progress of the sale. We never felt out of the loop. The financial team was on top of everything and helped us to get a timely closing. Great teamwork from everyone! We would highly recommend you and your team to anyone buying or selling.

— Bob & Leona

Working with Sam Delay has been a dream. From shopping around for a home, to the final purchase, Sam has been there for us all the way. When we were searching for a home, Sam really honed in on what we were looking for. He had great advice on what we might be interested in and what we should stay away from. When we we decided on a home, he helped us figure out the right offer that was accepted very quickly. During the closing process, my wife and I were very busy with work, kids, and were on a 2 week family vacation. Sam made the whole process smooth and seamless. And I love that he uses Docusign! I wouldn't think twice about using Sam again and you shouldn't think twice about bringing him on as your new real estate agent.

— Kesten M.

We didn't get to experience a full transaction with Sam, but if we did, we know he would've carried us through smoothly. With out a doubt, he had our best interest in mind at all times. He's very patient and very knowledgeable, which is very comforting as a buyer. Would definitely be repeat clients if we go back to Bend.

— Shannon A.

We worked with Edie to purchase our new home in Bend. We were shopping from out of state, and getting here to look at houses was a challenge. On more than one occasion, Edie showed us prospective houses via Face Time on her iPad. When we were able to make it to town to shop, Edie had a list with a wide variety of houses to pick from. All of them offered something that we were looking for. In the end, we ended up with a beautiful house a short distance from where we both work. Edie made the process SO simple. She took care of everything for us. Our transaction went flawlessly. She was a joy to work with and helped make our relocation as simple as it could be. I highly recommend Edie and her team for your real estate needs.

— David & Amy

We highly recommend Edie DeLay and Team DeLay for your home sale. The team provided outstanding service by communicating with us throughly and in a timely manner. They utilized emails, text messages and docu-sign communications. The Listing documents were excellent, with amazing photo's and descriptions depicting the highlights of our property. Our home was evaluated accurately and listed at a price congruent with comps in our area. Edie and her team went out of their way to provide service, for example, dropping off booties. We especially appreciate their giving expert advice, both on how to appeal to buyers and leading us through the selling decisions. We had two offers on our house in approximately 24 days. I appreciate the professionalism and expertise this team used. After you have the opportunity to work with them, you know that you have hired the best real estate team in the business.

— Wendy & Gary

I recently sold my home in Eagle Crest with Edie’s help. My husband had died and this was my first time selling a home by myself. I originally contacted her more than a year prior to listing my home with her. She was extremely patient as it took that long for me mentally and physically to prepare for moving and downsizing. Edie coached me through this process every step of my journey from the paperwork involved with listing my home to the signing of the papers at closing. Edie made this process far less intimidating than I had anticipated. I highly recommend her as a Real Estate agent. Thank you, Edie, for your expertise, advice and assistance; and for being available when I needed you.

— Carol S

I just want to tell you, You are awesome! We have thoroughly enjoyed working with you. You are so diligent, honest and sincere. We couldn’t have picked a better Realtor!

— Sarah M.

Loved working with Sam and Team DeLay in the purchase of our home - very knowledgeable, competent, quick, and super responsive throughout the whole process, from the first meeting all the way through to getting the keys. Couldn't be happier. Highly recommended!

— Andrew S.

Sam worked super hard for me from start to finish on my home purchase. He offered me tons of guidance and support along the way. As long as I'm in Central Oregon, I'll be working with him any time I get the opportunity. Best experience I've ever had with a realtor! Thanks Sam!

— Josh Garner

Sam and Team Delay have been awesome!!! They have been so easy to work with and have made our first home buying experience so easy. They have helped every step of the way and have always been easy to reach to with any questions or concerns we've had. I would HIGHLY recommend them!

— Jodi N.

We could not have worked with a better real estate agent than Sam DeLay. He was a true professional and was invaluable in leading us through the home purchase process from the very beginning to the conclusion. He communicated with us at every step to keep us informed and was diligent in handling all of the paperwork and addendum's. He obviously knows his craft and we would utilize his services again if we were to sell a home or purchase another one in the future. Our hats off to Sam and team Delay.

— Jim and Barb H.

Maureen and Team DeLay are amazing to work with. They came in and worked their magic with the staging and the proper pricing and after 8 months on the market with another broker, Maureen sold our home in one day! We actually had multiple offers on the property. They are all very professional, easy to work with and truly care about you and your home. We would highly recommend Maureen and Team DeLay to anyone selling or buying a home!

— Paige T.

After purchasing a new home in The Bridges development here in Bend, we decided it made sense to use Team Delay (The Bridges on-site realtor) to sell our existing home. As it turns out, it was the right decision. They were on top of everything from start to finish with impeccable attention to every detail on the construction of our new home, and coordinating the closing of both properties. And best of all, they sold our existing home within ten days of going to market at a great price. Thank you Team Delay for a great job. We are so happy in our new Pahlisch home.

— Cy Smith

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Moe (Maureen) and Team DeLay! We spoke with several real estate agents before choosing Moe, and our transaction would not have been nearly as seamless if we had chosen another agent. As first time homebuyers, Moe was endlessly patient in explaining the process, guiding us in choosing the right home (without pushing) and assisting us in reviewing the inspection. She even following up after we purchased the home with great recommendations on vendors to assist with painting, carpet cleaning, etc. A big benefit of working with Team DeLay is that they truly work as a team. Moe, Sam and Edie were all in the loop with the details of our transaction, and we felt just as confident in speaking with Sam or Edie on the (rare!) occasion that Moe was unavailable. In that same vein, when we looked at a home to purchase that was listed by Edie, we had no concerns about this putting us at a detriment. We were completely confident that all involved would use discretion in protecting our interests as well as their seller's. You cannot go wrong with choosing Team DeLay.

— Casie & Kevin

I couldn't recommend anyone higher than Team DeLay with The Hasson Company. Working with Sam has been easy, painless, and enjoyable throughout every phase of the home buying process. You absolutely feel you're a number one priority at all times, regardless of the amount you are spending. The great part is all of Team DeLay is working with you towards the same goal, and you will be taken care of by Edie, Sam or Maureen any day of the week at any time. If you are looking to purchase a home, there is absolutely no other way to go.

— Brandon

Finding a house can be a very stressful time. But with a good realtor that can all change. My wife and I were just searching for our first home and we were looking for an upbeat, enthusiastic, and passionate realtor to help us. We definitely hit the jackpot when we met Sam DeLay. Sam was there whenever we needed him and was working round the clock on getting us exactly what we were looking for. We had our ups and downs with finding a home because of the market here in Bend, but Sam never quit working and was always available for us. Sam's selfless attitude and diligence was very admirable and helpful. Now that we have found our first home, thanks to Sam, we have not only met a great realtor but a great friend as well. I give Sam DeLay the highest recommendation not only as a realtor but as a person as well. Thanks for everything Sam and we look forward to seeing you soon. Thanks for helping make our dreams come true.

— AJ & Meredith

We want to let you know what an outstanding agent Sam DeLay is. We have worked with several agents in the past buying and selling homes. Sam is by far the best agent we have come across. Sam is efficient, dedicated, true to his word, ethical, and honest. He fulfilled every request promptly and was always honest. He is an agent who truly knows his client and has their best interest at heart. Sam even took time out of his vacation to keep us up to date and informed. He is very professional and a person others can count on. Sam is the agent we will recommend to others and use in the future to sell and buy our homes.

— Mike & Shawna

Dear "DeLay Hasson" Team, You have an amazing real estate agent named Moe Kohal. After our first initial encounter with Moe, we had a gut feeling she was the right one for the job. It was not an easy task. She immediately and eagerly began her search for the perfect house. She listened to our needs, visions, and differing opinions; and managed to find a match! We requested a home with privacy, on a large lot and at an affordable price. Moe knew the homes fitting our criteria would be snatched quickly in today's market. Her attention to the search was immeasurable. Our numerous phone conversations, Emails, and texts, created an atmosphere of "we must be her only clients" (and I'm sure we weren't)! I remember Emailing Moe early one Sunday morning. I apologized when I realized the day and time (I'm an early bird). She responded immediately and stated it was no problem, she had been up and at her computer for a few hours already. Now that's dedication! After finding the ideal house in a prime location, Moe worked with the home owners' agent and managed to negotiate a deal to satisfy all parties. Moe successfully tackled "Docusigning" and skillfully handled our lack of knowledge in the area. Since Mr. Burgin was frequently away, this was a vital link toward closing. (She also helped place the Hasson App. on my phone, Nice tool!) Moe's personable perseverance and knowledge in her field, makes her a top number one real estate agent. Mr. Burgin just last week, highly recommended her to a friend down South, who is considering relocating to Bend. Proof that we would not hesitate further referrals. Thank you for providing an agent with a heart for her clients and a talent for the business.

— Suzanne and Jeff B.

As the executor of a family members estate, I was tasked with getting his home sold after his passing. Maureen and Team DeLay were there to help me navigate the whole process. Maureen is detail oriented, very easy to work with and knows how to get things done. She made every aspect of the sale easy for me and we had an offer three days after listing. I can't recommend Maureen Kohal and Team DeLay more highly!

— Dan Leonardo

As a builder that has been both large and small in scale; we recognize the importance of a leading real estate expert and team. Weathering down turns and gearing up for more active markets takes adaptation, perseverance, hard work, experience and most importantly; integrity. The DeLay team provides that and more for Pahlisch Homes.

— Dan Pahlisch

The real estate world can be awfully intimidating for a first-time home buyer. Working with Edie gave me the knowledge and confidence to navigate through what can often be a very stressful time. Her professionalism and honesty made communication easy and comfortable, despite the fact I’m located out of state. Edie was referred to me and I would love to pass on the referral/recommendation to anyone out there looking for a stellar broker.

— Jesika K.

Thank you for selling our home and taking care of the thousand pounds, it seemed, of paperwork. Appreciated the professional manner in which the business was carefully done.

— Henry M.

Edie and Sam, Kevin and I just want to thank you both for being so great to work with. You both made a complicated process much easier and seamless. Thank you for the "welcome home" gifts for all of us :) That was very sweet of you both to think of all of us. We are very excited to move into our new home and we thank you for being so integral in making that happen

— Kevin & Cherstin C.

We have enjoyed working with both of you, thank you for being so knowledgeable and for keeping us well informed and updated.

— Cherstin C.

This has gone so smoothly! Edie and Sam Delay are the BEST!

— Leslie M

Thanks for all your work and patience in this buying process. We really appreciate all the work you've done for us and will highly recommend you to our friends. We are really excited about our new house - it seems like a quality place.

— Randy & Linda M.

Edie has deftly handled all of our real estate needs in the Bend area. She knows the Bend area intimately. She brings a wonderful energy to all of our meetings and communications. She speaks her mind about what she thinks is best for the client – and her opinions are highly valued. I recommend her whole-heartedly.

— TD

Our motivation to purchase a home coupled with the low inventory of houses in our price range made for a lengthy search. Edie's professional yet compassionate demeanor helped ease our frustrations. When our bid finally met with success Edie's work on our behalf did not end. She leveraged her community connections in our favor, networking with our team (listing realtor, lender and title company), always keeping us in the loop. If you're looking to purchase a home but don't know where to begin, my husband and I would highly recommend Edie DeLay. She'll go the distance with you from start to finish.

— Joyce

Edie represented me in the sale of my home in Oregon. She was trustworthy and effective in getting me top dollar considering the time.

— Sharon N.

Edie was knowledgeable of the area and the various neighborhoods, quickly gained an understanding of our preferences, and more than once steered us away from properties that would not fit our needs. We were very impressed with her knowledge and credibility and would be pleased to work with her on future property searches.

— Mark W.

You were awesome, Edie! I am so grateful for your patience, how you walked me through the sales process and helped create a peace of mind with the selling of my house.

— Beth B.

Thank you so much for all you did to help us find an amazing house in Bend! We love our new home and we are having a great time settling in.

— Ryan A.

I just want to thank you so much for your hard work and holding our handing during all of this. I realize we're not your only clients, but you made us feel that way.

— Nancy B.

Just want you to know much we appreciate all of your hard work and follow through. It really puts our minds at ease. Thank you.

— Ron D.

My husband and I have known Edie for a little over a year now and have worked with her on several different options of finding a home for us. Through countless meetings, emails and phone calls, no request was ever a bother for Edie. She has always been willing to go the extra mile for us, never knowing where things would eventually end up. A year later, due to a separate failed sale, we were unable to purchase the home that she found for us. However, we feel like we found a not only a superior real estate professional, but a friend and someone that we would not hesitate to refer any of our friends or family to. We have done a lot of business in real estate over the past 10 years and Edie is a breath of fresh air. She is ethical, hard working and honest. She's become a friend to us and we are grateful that we had the chance to meet her and hope to work with her again sometime in the future. Anyone looking to buy or sell a home should consider working with Edie. You can't go wrong!

— Matt & Becky M, Bend
