Many years ago on our second visit to Turkey we decided that we would like to
own a villa. We initially looked in another area and viewed numerous properties
and met more estate agents than we care to remember. Not only were we shown
properties that were totally unsuitable for us but we also quickly learnt that
unlike UK estate agents Turkish agents are much more involved in the property
transaction and therefore it is absolutely essential that not only do you get on
well with them but you must find someone you explicitly trust.
When we first come to Dalyan we fell in love with it so our search for a property
began again. We started by visiting all the estate agents sadly only to rediscover
that the vast majority were at best not competent.
Thankfully, just as we had almost given up hope, all changed by visiting Delta
and meeting Ozgur who was a complete breath of fresh air. From the very
beginning Ozgur explained in plain English the whole buying process, costs
involved and most importantly outlined the pitfalls as well as the benefits of
buying in Dalyan /Turkey. Nothing was hidden and if we had only met him
before we would have saved ourselves a lot of time.
When we decided on our beautiful villa Ozgur handled everything for us from
the obtaining of Tax numbers, visiting the notary, obtaining a translator etc
nothing was too much trouble.
To our absolutely amazement after our purchase had been completed and with
no obligation on his behalf Ozgur provided an after Sales service second to
none. This merely reinforced what we had already discovered that he truly cares
about his clients and will go out of his way to aid in any way he can, a truly
exceptional person. If you are looking for an estate agent who knows the market,
is totally honest, trustworthy and an excellent communicator you will find all of
these attributes in Ozgur together with many more.

We purchased our villa in 2012 through Delta Estates and it can only be said that Ozgur
Karaca's knowledge and expertise were unbeatable. He supported us every step of the way
through the initial negotiation, the legal process, money transfer, arranging the changeover of
utilities, even our home insurance, in order to reach a successful conclusion. In fact, nothing
was too much trouble for him, even helping us to buy furniture and fittings for our new home
and guiding us through setting up a Turkish bank account.
We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Ozgur and Delta Estates to any
prospective purchaser or seller of a property. We know you will be dealt with expertly,
honestly and with good humour.
First class service from a first class guy!
Ozgur from Dalyan Delta Emlak did a fantastic job for us getting the Living Licence for our new property . This was not a simple process and his extensive knowledge of the bureaucratic processes and contacts in Local Government Departments made the job so much easier. Payments to obtain the different permissions were kept to a minimum which no doubt would have cost us much more had we tried to do it ourselves. He also sold our previous villa for us and expedited the sale very quickly so we could move to our new villa without delay:

When we decided to buy a property in Dalyan we contacted several estate
agents in the area. We opted for Delta Real Estate after much deliberation and we
couldn't have made a better choice. We were guided through the process of buying
a property in Turkey, everything was clearly explained , the buying process, costs
and legal matters were exactly as we were told. All our questions and worries were
addressed and answered in a very professional manner and we found everthing went
very smoothly from the beginning to end of obtaining the property that we decided
The other very important thing is that we now have a beautiful property, in a lovely
area, that we relax in and enjoy every time we visit . We have been happy that we
decided to do business with Delta Real Estate and can thoroughly recommend their
services to anyone wishing to buy a dream property in Tukey.
I first met Ozgur 2007 He had a house in the same complex as me and my
late husband Ozgur always said any problems he was there to help, this even
included when we were Back in England, he would keep an eye on on our
property and if any repairs. Or problems he Would deal with the many times
paying for them from his own pocket trusting us until we returned. This was on
a personal level and showing the type of person he is.
He is the kindest most honest person I have met.He has amazing integrity
honesty,and a great sense of fairness. He recently helped me through a very
difficult inheritance case, he has taken me through all the very difficult stages,
many unknown to himself. I have trusted him with Power of Attorny when
necessary and he has never let me down. He has an amazing view on life and a
brilliant brain I am very lucky to have known him
I am delighted to write this reference for Ozgur at Delta Real Estate. I contacted
several estate agents four years ago ( 2008 ) and arranged to see a number of
properties. Ozgur was one of the estate agents. I was immediately impressed
by his honesty and efficiently and the way he explained about the zoning and legal
requirements. Thanks to his advice I was better prepared, when I met other estate
In the end it became a choice between a property Delta Real Estate was marketing
and one with another estate agent. Given that the price and property were similar,
I decided to purchase my property from Delta Real Estate. It was a good decision
and one Ive never regretted. Ozgur is a decent and honest man and can be
trusted to look after the requirements of the purchaser. He made a complicated
system appear relatively simple and walked me through all the paperwork and legal
Since then, Ozgur has sorted out several issues, such as pool fees, council tax and
more. He even keeps an eye on my property while Im away ensuring, all is well
I cant recommend Ozgur and the staff at Delta Real Estate too highly. They value
their reputation and will always offer the highest quality service. You will find they go
well beyond just selling the property and will do all they can do to ensure that moving
into your new home, is as simple as possible.
For me, buying this house was a major investment and it became a relatively stress
free task thanks, to the help and support I received from Ozgur at Delta Real Estate.
I have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend both Ozgur and Delata Real Estate,
should you be looking to purchase a property in the Dalyan area. You will find him
both honest, helpful and someone who is a pleasure to work with.

We came to Turkey ın June 2004 to buy a property and spoke with many estate agents. Little by little we came to realıse that you do not always get the full story or the agent has only a basic knowledge of the legal issues. By the time we met Ozgur (who was working at an English Estate Agents working in Dalyan at the time), we had a basic understanding of the process and what we needed to look for. Our biggest challenge was the language barrier and the legalities of ownership and the complicated processes involved in registering foreign title. Ozgur was a godsend, not only dıd he give us the tıme of day to explain all the ins and outs of paperwork, including a full translation of the Tapu (Title Document), he also explained things like town planning, regıonal structures and gave us a full run down of every good and bad thing that could happen, with realistic time frames and where all the hidden costs can come from. He has a great knowledge of the town and the surroundıng areas and speaks perfect English and is a great teacher of Turkish too, making everything seem effortless.
We ended up buying a lovely traditıonal Turkish house in the old part of Dalyan town, very close to the centre. İt was on a large block nearly 1,300m2 with another building at the back of the block which had two self contained single bedroom apartments.
Everything went through smoothly and in August we had our names and photos on a new Tapu making us the proud owners of a Holiday home abroad (ın fact three homes). It was purchased as a short term investment and the property is bigger then our needs, but we saw ıts investment potential due to its closeness to town and the size of the block. We now have it up for sale (despite loving it) and eventually we aim to sell it and downsize. We shall stay in Dalyan though as it is a lovely town full of beauty and character, somthing that gets destroyed in the larger tourist towns. We shall sell our house through Dalyan Delta Emlak and will definitely use Ozgur’s services in procuring a new home in Dalyan.

We first met Ozgur in May 2005 when we started our search for property in Dalyan.
From the early stages of meeting with Ozgur we knew that he was different from many of the other Property Agents we had met in Dalyan and that he was the guy we should work with.
Firstly, Ozgur took time to make sure he understood our needs and what would best suit them. This meant that neither of us wasted our time seeing properties and land either not suitable or out of our price range. This was a marked contrast from several other property agents we had met. Over a three month period Ozgur showed us many places, plots of land and houses, and was always objective in his assessment of what we saw and made sure we thoroughly consider the pros and cons. He was not just trying to ‘sell’ to us what was in his portfolio at the time.
Once we decided upon a piece of land, Ozgur then guided us through the complex land purchase process and was always on hand to provide help and support despite having a heavy work schedule.
The next challenge we faced was to select a builder and Ozgur again played a critical role in this equally complex process. He helped us select a builder from a shortlist of four and again played the role of objective advisor, helping us make the best decision for our needs.
Ozgur stayed very closely involved throughout the our house building project, despite his job being officially done.
He helped us enormously with the building project and we appreciate that we really could not have done it as successfully without his expert guidance and support.
We highly respect Ozgur and his team at Dalyan Delta, not only for the top quality service they provided to us, but for providing services of an equally high and consistent standard to many other customers. They have a deservedly solid reputation.
On a final note we consistently found Ozgur to be professional, friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the local market conditions and rules and regulations especially concerning foreign purchasers in Turkey. He keeps himself abreast of the issues and is not afraid to share bad news.
We have no hesitation in recommending Ozgur and his team at Dalyan Delta to anyone looking to purchase land or property, and or seeking investment advice in Dalyan and the surrounding areas.

What can I say, Ozgur made our live easy when purchasing our property. He showed us the property which was for sale and we fell in love with it. From hereonin it was easy, Ozgur took over for us, our part was a pleasure from beginning to end.
We were informed every step of the way and Ozgur explained everything so we knew exactly what was appertaining at any one time.
There is little more that I can say, apart from, you have selected a fantastic Agent in Ozgur.
If you would like to speak to me, I will be happy to answer your questions

Having been to Turkey many times over the last 15 years, it had always been a dream to buy a house here - and particularly in Dalyan, which is like a haven for us from the hustle and bustle of living in London. Having started seriously looking, we felt that fate led us to meeting Özgur on a Sunday night, the day before we were due to go home. He explained the somewhat bewildering Turkish property purchasing system in a way that no-one else had and we knew that he would be entirely honest with us. Özgur was always careful to tell us when we had options and gave us enough information to make an informed decision which we felt comfortable with. In fact, he went beyond just telling it like it is and guided us personally through the whole process to a successful conclusion, which means we own a wonderful villa in a lovely part of Dalyan. We have become good friends with Özgur and his family, and now when we visit Dalyan it's because we love our house, the town and the friends we have made here.
We also bought a plot of land through Özgur, and trust his advice completely, including about the right time to sell based on his extensive understandiing of the local property market. It helps that Özgur spent many years in the UK, so he understands the British system and the differences between that and the Turkish process. He can explain things which, at times, seem quite mystifying. He has also given us the knowledge and confidence to manage our house here, which is fantastic.
I would highly recommend Özgur and his great team at Delta Real Estate for those who want the best professional advice and a completely honest opinion on the best options.

My wife and I purchased a plot of land in Dalyan in September 2006 with the help of Ozgur and the team at Delta Dalyan. Ozgur was recommend to me by a friend and he certainly lived up to the recommendation. The service provided was efficient and professional and he guided us smoothly through the whole buying process, which was potentially complicated by the fact that the owner was living in Germany. We were provided with accurate and thorough information at every step of the process and we were kept informed at all times.
With the purchase complete, Ozgur has now taken on the roll of project manager for us, keeping an eye on the work that is going on and helping us sort out some of the inevitable issues that arise.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Ozgur & Delta Dalyan to anyone thinking about purchasing property in the Dalyan/Dalaman area.
