William W Dilks Sr 
REALTOR®   Residential Specialist

 

 

 

Each morning, I start the day with a smile on my face and ask, “Who can I help today?” 

 

Every transaction and situation presents unique challenges. I relish applying the problem-solving skills I acquired during my 30 years in the computer software industry. Making the varied and complex accessible to all is a crucial skill when assisting real estate clients.

 

My real estate career began near Atlantic City, NJ and continued after I moved to Delaware. I thoroughly enjoy being immersed in real estate and pursuing knowledge, so adding appraisal education to my arsenal in early 2019 was a natural fit. And I continue to pursue knowledge through experience, education, and by just  doing… the best teachers of all.

 

Staging your home for sale is critical, and requires a detailed yet artistic eye. And with my buyers, I’ll help you envision homes through your eyes, your expectations. My experience maintaining my homes can help guide you as a buyer or seller. 

 

Activities over the years that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed include coaching Little League, umpiring baseball for girls and boys aged 9 - 18, and as a Cub Scout den leader.  In 2018 I ran for DE State Representative for my district (I did not unseat the incumbent).  I’m also treasurer of my neighborhood civic association. Through all of this I found that the cliché really is true – you get back so much more than you give!  That’s why I donate, in my clients’ names, 5% of my commissions to the charity of their choice.  Giving back goes hand-in-hand with gratitude.  

 

Jazz organ is my first love and passion, being drawn to a Count Basie-styled approach at a young age. This path led me to the prestigious Berklee College of Music, and to later getting my degree in music.  I traveled the country performing on cruise ships, in clubs, casinos, and in concerts on my own, with bands, and for Hammond Organ Company based out of Chicago.  Now I’m fortunate to perform jazz around the Delaware Valley with some world-class musicians from time to time.  During the final weekend of Wilmington's own Clifford Brown Jazz Festival, I'm proud to lead the official "after-fest" jazz jams.

 

My favorite is my family, all of whom I’m so very proud. I’m passionate about my music, working out/lifting, golf, being out on the water, the beach, and fresh seafood. Yet, I still love a great steak with a great wine… Chateauneuf-du-Pape is a favorite.

Home Sweet Home

My house is perfect...private in the back in a great location, with 3br 2ba.  I couldn't ask for anything more.

 

My baby - Hammond B3

Built in 1959 by Hammond Organ Company, Chicago, IL.  60 years old in 2019.  And still going strong!  I've had "baby" since 1971.  ...an incredible instrument.

Jazz Organ

By choice, I perform jazz with trios and quartets around the Delaware Valley a dozen or so times per year.   


I consider myself fortunate to be able to work with the regions' best players, along with occasion
ally jamming with other world-renown musicians.  I'm lucky indeed!
