Since joining the company in 2017, Elsman and Brunelle have been instrumental in the re- branding, growth and expansion of Lila Delman Real Estate, most recently exemplified by the firm’s record breaking 2019, with over $560,000,000 in total sales volume. Additionally, the duo is attributed with Lila Delman’s continued leadership in marketing and ever-expanding suite of client services.“Over the course of the last year and a half, Ryan and Brandyn have assumed many leadership responsibilities at Lila Delman Real Estate,” commented John Hodnett, President/Broker-Owner of Lila Delman. “In light of Melanie Delman’s passing, the two have provided leadership, strength, and dedication that have helped pave the way for a professional and progressive company going forward. It has become evident to Pam and I that both are key to the continued success and expansion of the firm.”


“One would be hard-pressed to match the talent and work ethic of Ryan and Brandyn in the real estate industry,” added Pamela Delman-Hodnett, Owner of Lila Delman. “Their intelligence, kindness, and strength proudly continue my mother Lila’s legacy, ensuring that the best is yet to come.”


Former New York City residents turned Rhode Islanders, Elsman and Brunelle moved to Newport in 2017, where they currently reside. Prior to joining Lila Delman, Ryan worked in operations and strategy for a team of real estate brokers out of Compass’s flagship office while Brandyn served as right hand to the principle of a high-end residential design firm. The two are energized about the year ahead and look forward to continuing to make a significant impact on Rhode Island’s real estate industry as a whole.
