We were very pleased with all Jennifer did for us while we were looking for a house. Jennifer presented us with several options and we never felt pressured by her while we made our decisions. After we presented a contract on a house, she kept us well informed of what was happening and prepared us for what we could expect. It was a pleasure working with her.

My husband and I highly recommend Jenna LaFermine as a realtor. She was very professional and supportive in taking us through the whole process of selling our home and purchasing our new home. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to pricing homes and we were able to obtain top dollar for our home in a challenging real estate market. She was also very responsive to any questions we might have. You will be in really good hands with Jenna as your realtor.

Jenna is an absolutely amazing realtor. She stays on top of EVERY aspect of your sale and/or purchase. My wife and I were guided every step of the way by a true professional. I’ve had friends and neighbors asked me who we used to help us look for and buy our new house and sell our former house. I’m confident they will use her when it becomes their time to make the decision. She’s the best!!! Thank you so much, Jenna!!!

Our selling agent, Jenna LaFermine, was amazing during the entire sales process. Jenna is super professional, knowledgeable, easy to work with, and always had our best interest in mind. Selling your home can be a stressful experience and Jenna was always available to answer any question or concern that we had. We cannot thank her enough for her efforts in selling our home. She truly went above and beyond!

Jenna was professional and hard working! From start to finish she was exceptional. Every step of the way she kept us informed and helped guide us with every move we needed to make. Closing in less than a month, is major ROCKSTAR status if you ask me! Jenna, you are amazing and Jason and I can’t thank you enough from the bottom of our hearts.

Shalini Sawhney is the epitome of a professional. Not only is she super knowledgeable in the current real estate market, but the way she connected with us when we put our first house on the market, she immediately puts me at ease. It's critical an agent who truly cares was there to help us navigate the many decisions that had to be made. She was positive, patient, and reassuring the entire time, and in the end there is no doubt she was the reason the home was sold! I am so glad Shalini made this process smooth and seamless!

Edna was amazing to work with.  I looked for well over a year, looking for just the right property.  She was patient and brought me a number of options throughout the process, including the one that was the one I was looking for.  She was so helpful throughout the process and made it a seamless process from start to finish.  Thanks so much Edna!

We had a great experience working with our agent and friend Shalini Sawhney. Selling the house was an overwhelming task ahead of us in the midst of a new job and move. But, she made the process seamless. She first met with us and gave a detailed overview of the process. She guided us through every step of the process to make sure we got the best price. We highly recommend Shalini Sawhney.

Shalini is the best. I would recommend her to others who are looking for a home.

Our realtor, Shalini Sawhney, was great. We spoke to her from Florida prior to our house hunting trip and related what we were looking for. Upon our arrival, she had several houses fitting our stated needs to show us. One of them was perfect, exactly what we were looking for, and we made an offer which was accepted. She went on to assist us in each additional step up to and through closing. Additionally, as we were new to the area, Shalini helped us find needed doctors and other service providers. She was the complete deal. We would gladly work with her again if the situation should arise.

Shalini Sawhney was our selling agent from Burns & Ellis Realtors. She was AMAZING - excellent communication skills and attention to details; kind and professional. She walked us through everything from start to end. We had a wonderful, simple process with her guiding us and I have been recommending her to everyone since then. If you like to be "in the know" -- give Shalini a call!!

I just wanted to let everyone know what a wonderful experience we have had working with Shalini Sawhney. She was so enthusiastic in helping us buy a beautiful lot, that we had already missed out on the first time. As soon as she found out it was up for sale again, she immediately advised us to try again. There were multiple offers, but she persisted knowing we had already tried before. I feel her persistence and care really helped us to get our dream lot. We didn't give it a second thought to call her when we listed our house for sale. This has already been an excellent experience and we have no doubt she will do everything she can to get us our best offer.

Shalini S., my agent, is an exceptional individual, that went the extra mile to do whatever it takes to complete my home purchasing experience. She is very knowledgeable in the real estate market, very kind hearted, tentative, and a pleasure to work with. She does not pressure you in any way. She gives you all the time to make informed decisions. She drafted my contract while on her vacation. I closed within 30 days from start to finish. If you are ever in need of a professional real estate agent, Shalini S. is highly recommended.

I’ve used a couple realtors in the local area and if you are looking for the best realtor that knows the market and will make the buying/selling process as easy as possible, Jenna LeFermine is the realtor for you! She was always on top of getting feedback and keeping the process going!
Jennifer was very helpful throughout my home buying process. I’m new to Delaware so her knowledge of the local market and Delaware-specific nuances was invaluable. I love my new home! Highly recommend.
Wow! Maggie was an incredible agent. $22,000 over listing in 3 days. She and/or her team gave me advice at any given moment. Maggie knew I had an emotional attachment because of my longevity with my dad since he built the home. I couldn't have asked for a better buyer who I know will love this space as much as I have. Thanks so much Haass Group!
I recently was assisted by Holly Messina with the sale of my property. It was by the most stress free experiences I’ve had. She kept me informed, and up to date every step of the way. She was knowledgeable, and able to quickly direct me with the next step of the process. I would definitely recommend Holly for any further purchase or sale of property!
Jenna was extremely professional, but very down to earth and easy to work with. I have been in my home for 25 years and was very concerned that I was making the best decision for me. She gave me all the information I needed to make a decision to sell, and to sell at the right time at the right price. I needed to have some minor repairs done, and she had skilled tradesmen contacts to get that done quickly and for very reasonable rates. She was always there when I had any question or anxiety. She completely understands the current crazy real estate market. I am extremely satisfied and will do business with her in the future.
Edna and I had been in contact for the past three years as my husband and I were considering moving from Nevada to the Smyrna/Dover area. Once when I was visiting in the area, she took time out of her schedule to show me some homes for sale in a community I was interested in, even though she knew we weren’t ready to buy at the time. She showed me a few of the homes so I could see the differences in the models. She stayed in email contact with me after I returned to Nevada and sent available listings to give me an idea of price ranges. We started our serious home search within three days of relocating to Delaware. The following day, after having looked at four other homes, she found “the one.” She was so sure this was the home for us that she toured the house herself first before even contacting us. That was it! I really enjoyed working with Edna because she was always friendly, caring, and made time for her clients. A big thanks to Edna for making our relocation easier!
We cannot recommend Jenna highly enough! With her extensive expertise of the surrounding area, she helped us set a competitive price for the sale of our house and was with us every step of the way. We would not have been able to sell our house as quickly as we did without her. Her excellent negotiating skills and deep knowledge of the process were key to our success and truly set us at ease. Her quick communication and regular check-ins, updating us on each step of the process were so helpful!
Jenna was an absolute dream! She quickly grew from agent to a friend to now someone we consider family. We all know selling a house can be stressful and emotional, but somehow Jenna made it as easy as possible, and at times even fun! She held our best interests in mind, navigated the whole process with a sense of calm, professionalism, and compassion that words can’t begin to express. Beyond serving as our agent and friend, Jenna’s reputation in the field added to the ease and success. Spanning from the buyer’s agents to lending officers, Jenna’s relationships allowed her to bring to us a full explanation of next steps, solutions to any “hiccups” that arose, and a detailed explanation every step of the way. Because of Jenna, our dreams came true getting into our new home near family. We’re excited for this next chapter, and excited to have made a friend for life in Jenna.
Terry was amazing. She listened, was accommodating, professional, and honest. She definitely had our best interests at heart and gave us great advice. We had a buyer for our home within two weeks, and the entire process was a breeze. We are so thankful we chose her to be our agent!
About seven months ago we had the pleasure of working with Edna Givens for the sale of my brother's home in Dover. She did an outstanding job! She was very thorough and professional, and gave us updates almost daily. She found a buyer immediately, and we were able to go to settlement in about three weeks after listing the home. I would not hesitate to call Edna for any real estate question or sale. She is very knowledgeable and friendly.
It has been such a pleasure to have worked with Mrs Edna Givens as our realtor in selling our home. She was very thorough, gave us several tips for readying our home for a quick sale, and was able to find a buyer and get us to settlement in a matter of weeks. We put our complete trust in her hands, and weren't disappointed. It was a pleasant experience.
Highly recommend Edna as your Realtor. She made the process of buying super smooth and easy. If we had any questions, she knew the answer or would find out and get right back to us. Three words we would use to describe her are knowledgeable, professional, and trustworthy. She will definitely have our business again.
Jenna LaFermine with the Haass Group is a phenomenal agent. Her service after the sale is commendable. My siblings and I faced the daunting and emotional task of selling our fathers house, our childhood home. Jenna made herself available anytime and helped us immensely through the process. Even after closing she continued to keep us updated on communications with utility installers and the attorneys office. Jenna made the process from listing to closing easy and then some. If you are selling or buying, I highly recommend Jenna and the Haass Group. Pure professionalism!
Our realtor, Jennifer Gallagher, was absolutely wonderful! She was always available and had answers to all of my questions. She made my first home buying experience so easy and went above and beyond every step of the way. I would not have found the perfect home if it wasn’t for Jennifer! I would recommend her to anyone searching for a home in this crazy market and especially a first time buyer!
Jenna LaFermine is amazing! We built a house in Dover in 2004 and we decided to put it on the market and move to Middletown. Needless to say we had a lot of anxiety. Jenna made the whole process so much easier- relieved a lot of that anxiousness. She's extremely knowledgable, intelligent, communicative and kind. She was a dream to work with- always at our beck and call. We ended up with a contract on our house ( for more than the asking price) in less than a week after putting it on the market! We cannot thank you enough Jenna! If you are thinking about buying or selling- put it in her hands!
From the moment we first made contact, I had a good feeling about Maggie Haass. She came across as being bright, articulate, energetic, and very personable. I asked Maggie to work with my sister, brother, and me to sell our recently deceased mother's house. I was already aware of the fact that the sale of a property with more than one owner could be a daunting task for any real estate agent to manage, especially when the sellers were hoping to sell as quickly as possible. When the listing went "live," Maggie had showings scheduled within the first few hours. We had several serious buyers look at the house, and offers were made within days. My siblings and I were pleasantly surprised with the first formal offer we were asked to consider. We accepted the offer, but, unfortunately, the buyer backed out of our signed agreement. Fortunately, being one of the most positive people I've met in my 73 years of life, Maggie was fabulous when it came to helping us deal with the disappointment of the lost sale. She had us back in the seller saddle and believing that the house WAS going to be sold in no time flat. And, within a week or so, we accepted a second offer and quickly closed on the sale. In retrospect, I believe that Maggie Haass is an exceptionally talented real estate agent. She was very knowledgeable, professional, genuinely caring, and a great problem solver. Maggie kept us fully informed of everything that was happening every step of the way. It never seemed to matter the day or time of day, Maggie was always available to answer our questions and keep our spirits up. In closing, I can honestly say that Maggie Haass is one of the finest professionals with whom I have had contact in quite some time. Anyone who is looking for a top-notch real estate agent should give serious consideration to contacting Maggie. I believe that the Burns and Ellis agency is very fortunate to have her as a member of their team.
Shalini Sawhney made this complex process easy with her guidance and attention to detail. She is a great match. I recommend her 100%!
