Why We Sell More Houses
Burns and Ellis is among Delaware’s largest and oldest privately owned real estate agencies, providing unparalleled commitment to and involvement in the communities we serve. For our clients that means a uniquely personal engagement with our agents; and agents trained by a business large enough to provide cutting edge training and support.
Many Agents, One Team
Co-Owner Tom Burns is not only a lifelong real estate professional, his intimate knowledge of the region comes from serving it as a Realtor® and guiding it with volunteer service on public boards and committees. Wife Terry Burns shares his lifetime experience as a professional Realtor®, and ensures that our hand-picked staff of agents embrace the values, standards and practices that consistently result in the highest percentage of home sales in central Kent County.
Every member of our team is a skilled professional, practiced at successfully matching buyers and sellers. At Burns and Ellis we recognize the life-shaping impact of the transactions we facilitate and do our best to make it a positive experience for both parties.
The basis for Burns and Ellis’s success for over half a century is integrity. You do not succeed long-term in this business without a commitment to honesty and service. Our customers ask us to shepherd them through what for many will be the biggest financial transaction of their lives. That is a responsibility we recognize and honor with candor and professional skill. As Realtors Tom and Terry are held to a higher standard, one which they require of their agents.
