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.
A Top Producer For 2016! Burns and Ellis has consistently recognized me as a Top Producer for listing and sales volume. Since its induction,I have been seleted as a Delaware Five Star Real Estate Agent in the Delaware Today, which consist of a select group representing less than 2% of real estate agents in the area.
I started my career in Real Estate in 1988 in the Baltimore/DC/Annapolis area and relocated with my husband to Dover in 1993 and have been a full time Realtor in Dover ever since! My goal is to offer the highest level of real estate expertise with exceptional customer service. While the real estate market has changed and become more complex over the years, one thing remains the same: my commitment to understanding each of my clients’ unique needs and tailoring a process of exceptional real estate services to meet those needs. I pride myself on delivering services based on integrity, enhanced by expertise and efficiency. Utilizing my knowledge, negotiation skills, and careful attention to detail, I strive to smoothly guide my buyers and sellers through the complexities of the sales process. Whether you are looking to purchase or sell, I will redefine your real estate experience!
I take pride in constantly focusing on positive results whether you are listing or buying, moving across town or into or out of the area. I am honored to support our Dover Air Force Base military serviceman and personnel in the relocation into our great City, or helping with a transfer out of the area to a new Base. We in Dover are proud of our partnership with DAFB.
I am a past member of the Professional Standard Committe of Kent County Association of Realtors, Membership Committee of The Chamber of Commerce, the Arbitration Committee, Scholarship Committee, and the Social Committee for The Kent County Association of Realtors. I am an active member of the March of Dimes, Heart Association and fundraising for children and adults living with neuromuscular diseases.
My husband and I love the quality of life that Delaware has to offer. We moved 13 times to the extreme west coast, east coast, north and south and states in between. We loved everywhere we lived and enjoyed all the different places we lived with our children and experienced the wonders of what each place offered. When I am not working, and that is rare, I love spending time with my family, traveling, gardening and enjoying our great beaches.
