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.

Professionalism

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.

Integrity

The basis for Burns and Ellis’s success over almost 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.

Testimonials

Long before and from the day our "For Sale" sign went up Tom and Terry worked diligently towards changing that to "Sold". They were hands-on realtors, helping us stage our home, informing us on the realities of the market and keeping in close contact about buyer interest. They did a superb job at managing the long distance sale. We recommend them for their personal, forthright and experienced means of business.
