Local Business Spotlight : Candy Painted Treats

The Delia Group is dedicated to serving the Metro Detroit community and we will be featuring some of our favorite community members and local business owners to spread the love!
This month we are so happy to introduce you to Jennifer Filas, owner of Candy Painted Treats, a home based bakery making hand dipped pretzels, strawberries & cookies, as well as cakes and all sorts of other treats! 

From Jennifer:
I started the business 2 years ago but I've been baking my whole life. It started when I was kid with my grandma. She taught me everything I know. She made everything from roast to peanut brittle, all from scratch, all delicious! I got the idea from an episode of SHARK TANK. The contestant dipped pretzels in chocolate rolled them in peanuts, put a bow on the box and got a huge deal. The light bulb went off for me! "I can do that!" After work I went to the store and that was the day I figured out what I was supposed to do with the rest of my life.

Kit + Kathy Got Married

Kit + Kathy Got Married
A Delia Group Love Story

On Saturday, June 23 2018 one of our Agents, Kit Kymla, married one of our ISA's, Kathy Reid, and our hearts are so full of excitement about this! Kit wrote a little bit about their story below.

In November of 2014 I was loving my job, my coworkers and my life. I had recently moved from Marina Del Rey California to my home town in the Metro Detroit area to be closer to family and long time friends. The City was in a Renaissance and I embraced it with both arms. Much like every other single 30 something, I was on the "dating sites" and meetup.com. I wasn't looking for anything serious, just someone to couple up with at game night and an adventure buddy who likes week day bowling as much as I do. 

My first date with Kathy was bowling, the second was Glow Golf and the third was Thanksgiving dinner at my fathers house in Novi. Kathy was finishing school at U of M and her family was in Texas. Due to a heavy final proje ...

Top 5 Spring Gardening Tips!

By Heather O'Kronley

Time to get out the blower and yard bags, for us city people, and get all the flower beds ready for the season. It’s much easier to clear unwanted weeds and left-over leaves from Fall before your current plants begin to bloom. It will also aide with the weeding throughout the summer! Weeds are easier to pull in the wet Spring soil ??

Trim Trees, shrubs, and bushes missed in Winter

With this step you must check the plants to make sure you aren’t tri ...
