DeLille HOME was established in 2021 by Mary Powell DeLille as an evolution of Carol Young & Associates. With the retirement of Carol Young, previously Mary Powell’s partner and mother, DeLille HOME was born with the addition of team member Alison Kelly. Together, the team has over 18 years of real estate experience.

Our team’s number one goal is to give you, our clients, the best real estate experience through an easy-to-navigate process from start to finish. And we thrive to provide an unparalleled experience.

We prioritize the value and care we put into each of our clients through personalized and tailored support; our clients are the most important people to us, never just a number or transaction. This commitment to excellence has earned us recognition across Allen Tate’s network of REALTORS®.

Your DeLille HOME REALTOR® is connected in Triad communities and is able to put you on the inside track to more buyers, sellers, and properties.

“HOME is where the heart is, HOME is where we live. For each of us, our HOME looks different, but we all feel the same comfort when we step inside.” – Mary Powell

Meet Mary Powell

Mary Powell was born and raised in High Point…yes, she’s a local, and proud to call it home!

She began her real estate career in 1996 after graduating from College of Charleston with a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Arts. She is a graduate of the Realtor’s Institute. 

Whether old or new, buying or selling, she has the knowledge and tools to help clients sell or locate their dream home, negotiate an offer to purchase, and assist them through the complicated process of closing.

Her renovation, remodeling, and preservation experience allow her to find homes that really work for her client’s needs. With each project she’s learned how homes are constructed, the mechanics that make up a home, and proficiencies in the city building code. Her passion for historic homes earned her the Carraway Award of Merit awarded by Preservation North Carolina.

Through volunteering, she has given back to High Point through leadership roles in multiple non-profits around the community. Living in High Point since birth and renovating homes since 1996, her database of contacts is one you can trust to help you sell or find your next home.

Alison Kelly


Meet Alison

For almost her whole life, more than 30 years, Alison has called High Point home. She grew up in the Davidson County section of High Point and attended Hasty Elementary, Ledford Middle, and Ledford High School (Go Panthers!).

She didn’t always appreciate the small-town vibe and moved to Wilmington, NC. There she attended UNCW and obtained a BA in Communication Studies. At the end of those four years, she was ready to go back to her roots and was able to convince my college sweetheart, now husband, to leave his hometown of Raleigh and join her in High Point. Their family now lives just over the Davidson County Line in Shadow Valley with their two precious children Mary Claire (4) and Baker (2) and a small pack of pets (Winnie, Ella, Bean, and Sprinkles).

In the years after college, she worked in Advertising Sales and then Insurance Sales. She loved the challenges of working in the sales world but felt like something was missing. She and her husband bought their first home and boy was it a fixer-upper. After that very eye-opening experience, she became fascinated with Real Estate. Getting her Real Estate License felt like a natural choice. She enrolled in Superior School of Real Estate in August of 2015 and began her career at Allen Tate in December of 2015 and never looked back.

When Mary Powell asked me to join Delille Home, it felt like the perfect fit and I’m excited to see all that is in store for us. I am truly passionate about helping my clients reach their goals, whether you’re a first time home buyer, a family who needs to expand or downsize, or an investor buying your next project, I enjoy being a guide through the process.

High Point is her home base but over the last five years, Alison has explored and sold homes from East Bend to Burlington and everywhere in between. There will always be challenges but she prides herself on making each transaction as pleasant and smooth as possible.

The Real Estate market is dynamic and it’s important to stay informed. There is more to that than reading market stats and running reports. Being involved in this community helps give her an edge on things that are happening that could also impact the market. She stays connected not only because it’s my job but also because she cares. This is her way of making a difference in people’s lives, selling homes in her hometown.

    “My brother and I chose Mary Powell DeLille to handle the sale of our mother’s townhome. Throughout the different steps involved, she kept both of us informed. Her professional knowledge of what needed to be done and how to handle it made the whole selling process easy for us. She responded promptly to any questions we had. I would certainly call on her again and recommend her for any real estate needs.”

    – Emily Fagan

    “Alison is fantastic and she is so patient! I was picky and didn’t really know exactly what I wanted. It changed based on what I saw and what I chose to like that day! She was so patient and we saw so many houses. She encouraged me when the house “actually” met my needs and pointed things out that I was missing when the home didn’t. Almost a year later, I have probably worn her out but we found the right home for us and she was awesome through the entire process!”

    – Elizabeth Walter

    “Mary Powell DeLille is very knowledgeable, helpful, friendly, and hard working. She answered calls within a very short period of time, and handled a difficult real estate deal with professionalism. I am very happy that we chose her to work with us!”

    – Peggy Robbins

    “Allison Kelly is a professional Realtor and truly a wonderful person. Allison takes the time to get to know you and listen to what type of home you are looking for and makes herself available for appointments based on your schedule. I have already recommended a friend/co-worker to Allison and she has already found the home she was looking for and will be closing in the next two weeks. I would never hesitate to send anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell to Allison Kelly because I know she will do an excellent job.”

    – Kimberly August

    “Mary Powell is absolutely phenomenal! She helped us relocate our entire family from Boston. She was there for us every step of the way and took the time to teach us about all of the surrounding areas. We could not have had such a seamless transition without her by our side. She is extremely knowledgeable and we leaned on her extensively throughout the entire home buying process. We are so happy to have worked with Mary Powell and we would recommend her to everyone we know.”

    – Lori Hubbard

    “This was an overwhelming task for me, however Alison was extremely supportive and encouraging and made the whole process seem much less daunting. She kept me informed, and helped guide me. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. She wants to see her clients happy and in the home that’s right for them.”
