DBT40 Honoree: Ivy-lyn Sia
Position: Realtor and Property Manager
Employer: Welcome Home Realty
Home is where the heart is, and Ivy-Lyn Sia strives to match clients with properties that they will absolutely fall in love with.
As a realtor with Welcome Home Realty and a property manager of nearly 300 rentals throughout Delaware, Sia helps buyers, sellers, landlords, tenants and investors in residential, commercial and land transactions. Sia earned her real estate license in 2017, and the American Institute of Real Estate Agents awarded her as one of the 10 Best Real Estate Agents in Delaware within her first year of being licensed. Shortly after, she earned the Million Dollar Club recognition from the New Castle County Board of Realtors.
Before this year, Sia was always busy and on the go but the pandemic has taught her to slow down and balance her time better between her work and personal life. In addition to working as a realtor, Sia is a full-time mom to her 6-year-old daughter and a coach at Ignite Fitness Kickboxing, where she was asked to teach just three months after joining the studio.
Sia was recently chosen to participate in Dancing With The Delaware Stars to raise money for Mom’s House Inc. and the Greater Dover Boys and Girls Club. She also volunteers with the American Heart Association, the Delaware Adolescent Program Inc., the Suicide and Violence Education Program, and the Interfaith Homeless Shelter.
Sia enjoys traveling, learning about other cultures, trying different foods, and collecting Starbucks mugs from the places she visits. She has traveled to Mexico, Germany and France, but her favorite place to visit will always be the Phillipines, where she lived until moving to Delaware when she was 7 years old.
