Things went great! Peter Shade did a great job and we recommend him to any person that is looking for a Realtor to sell their home. We are pleased with the outcome. Also, we want to thank Mr. Burns because he is the one that suggested that we use Mr. Shade.

Shalini and Maggie are terrific and huge assets to B&E. They did a superb job working with a sound but tired house. When I needed to speak with them, they were there. I'm sure we three will remain friends for a lifetime! Thank you!

Hooray for September 30! In addition to being some longtime friends’ birthdays, it is the day that, after 12 years, we are homeless (well, no mortgage, at least!). Heidi Lutman took such good care of us in selling our home, despite us being clear across the country. Thank you for braving the ups and downs with us!

She even hugged the new homeowner today, as I would have done, had I been there! Kellie Miller Mondo, there is a wonderful new gal in 3 East Darby who will complete the neighborhood just perfectly. The house will still and always be full of love!

Shalini,

Hope your Friday is going as planned, and looking forward to a great weekend!

We had hands down the smoothest home selling experience, and for a newbie selling home for the first time, we totally lucked out having Shalini working alongside us. Shalini is positive, energetic and a consummate professional. She took the time to explain how the process works and set realistic expectation from the beginning. She is communicative, providing us meaningful updates and followups but was always very respectful of our wishes. We sold the house to someone that loves the house as much as we did, and the transaction couldn’t be easier. Thank you Shalini!

Thank you again Shalini, honestly I punch myself thinking just how easy you made this! You are a top agent in my mind!"

Bob and I would like to thank you for helping us sell our house. As a long time friend from “the old neighborhood”, you were our first and only choice of real estate agent when we needed to sell our house. We both agree that you, Tom and your team where a great choice.

Months before we put the house on the market, you walked us through the process of selling and preparing our house. Our initial meeting eased our worries.

Our house sold after only 8 days on the market. Not only is that amazing, it also proves you are very knowledgeable, professional and respected in our community.

Again, thank you and your team for making what can be a difficult process very easy.
Bob and Kathie Enright
Our association with Burns and Ellis Realty began 50 years ago, and we would never ever consider any other real estate company in the Dover/Kent County area. Terry and Tom know all and more there is to know about the Delaware Real Estate business. And, they make sure their agents are kept abreast of the most current changes, and are always available to assist their agents when necessary. When you contact them, they go the extra mile and represent you 100%.

Tom & Terry helped us sell our house in Dover in one of the toughest climates in the great housing crash. We had to do everything long distance from North Carolina. Thanks to their diligence and dedication our house sold and we were able to move on. We will never forget you both, thank you.

Could pretty much 'sum-up' Maggie with a single word...FANTASTIC!!! We were selling my deceased mother's home and Maggie told us which of many offers was the best and why. She also knew the market value of the property. She was always there for us. Knows her 'stuff' and has a great personality.

Terry & Tom,
Maggie did a wonderful job helping me find my first home for my family and I. She worked with us night and day until we found just the right home. Once we found it she was quick, aggressive, and dedicated to make sure we got it! I would highly recommend her if you are looking to buy a home.

Dear Terry & Tom,
I just wanted to convey to you the superb job that Becky Curry did on the selling of my home. She was delightful to work with, efficient in handling all aspects of the sale and charming everyone in the process. You should be proud to have her as one of your agents. Sincerely,
Barb A
Dear Tom & Terry,

Dear Becky,
Becky, Thank you so much for all your help with our move to Delaware. You really made us feel relaxed and welcomed on our journey.

Dear Sandy,
Thank you so much for the All Seasons gift certificate and for finding just the right house for our family! Craig told me you were a special lady. You are so kind - thank you! Love,

Dear Becky,
Steve and I would like to thank you for all that you did to get us in our home! We greatly appreciate all your hard work and time spent to get everything done so we could move in. Thank you again,
Steve, Kathi & Kayla
Dear Tom,
I enjoyed working with you. I also think everything went smoothly, even though the timing issues came up at the end. Have a happy New Year. Please feel free to use me as a reference- I found you to be reliable, insightful, professional, and timely. Best Regards

Thanks for the kind remarks. A number of our friends questioned us why, in this sellers' market, we did not sell our home without a realtor? Your professionalism proved that we made two correct decisions. First the decision to list with a realtor and second, and most important to list with you. Your assessment of the value was correct, you immediately brought a buyer, which enabled us to focus on our new home, and you helped us resolve the "water" problem to the satisfaction of both parties. Please feel free to give our names as very satisfied clients.

We can't thank you enough for all of your hard work. What we thought was impossible, you made possible! We could not have realized our dream if it had not been for you! Thanks for believing in us, and working with us! We love our house and feel so blessed and fortunate that you were a part of it! Thanks Again,
Linda and Ryan Scott & Max too
Maggie did an exquisite job helping me to find a home. She found many options for me to look at and for each house she had my "house checklist" in mind 100% of the time. Maggie was extremely thorough and answered all of my questions. She was very open and flexible meeting me at various times that were easiest for me. She was patient with me when I asked to see places more than once and she was happy to provide me with everything I needed. Maggie was also very informative and explained to me multiple options that I had in regards to buying my new home. There was so much that I didn't know and she truly was so helpful in teaching me! She helped me make a sound & responsible choice when buying my home and made sure that I thought it over (which I truly appreciate because I would've picked a house that was too much for me to pay for). Maggie was always had what I wanted and NEEDED in her mind. Buying a house is supposedly such a stressful adventure, but I felt that Maggie kept me at ease the entire time. She is, by far, one of the best professionals I have ever had the privilege of working with and I highly recommend her for any realtor needs! I am beyond impressed with Maggie's expertise and professionalism!

Dear Terry and Tom,
Ray and I want to thank you for all the hard work and sleepless nights you put in to helping us sell our house. We sincerely appreciate your dedication to customer service and all you did to make this look effortless. It is easy to see why you have been In business for nearly 50 years. Thank you!
Kim & Ray Book
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.

Twenty years later and in a much different market, we once again reached out to Edna. Only this time it was for our son's first house. On a very tight budget and willing to make our own improvements, we thought that "short sales" would be our only option. How wrong we were. Edna was able to breakdown the pro's and especially the con's of short sales. Our search was now more focused. She graciously showed us any home we found worthy and was able to provide needed local information. When we fell in love with the house our son purchased, Edna as before, was non stop. Gathering and organizing all the needed signatures, tax info, utility cost, and even trusted contractors and inspectors was much appreciated. Our son and his girlfriend are all moved in and they are very happy with their home purchase and Edna. It goes without saying that you always remember your first home. We also remembered our first realtor, and are honored she helped our son. Thank you Edna!
David & Terri Ford
Maggie helped us find our perfect house!! She was very knowledgeable regarding the community. If there was a question she didn't know the answer, she quickly found out the answer! Very detailed and a pleasure to work with! Kept us up to date negotiations, construction completion, and any outstanding concerns! I would recommend Maggie to a friend or colleague! She made the process so smooth and flawless.

Dear Peter,
Thank you for everything you have done for us. Under your care, we were able to purchase our dream home. Our whole family is thrilled and can't wait to start our lives in Dover.

Your integrity and work ethic was superior. Your attention towards us felt like we were a part of your family. Your help and guidance has made us feel very safe in our transition. You are easily one of the best agents we have ever worked with.

We definitely hope to work with you again in the future. And even more so, we hope to stay life long friends with you.

Thank you again!

Ellen,
This note is to express my heartfelt appreciation for all of your helpfulness with helping my parents find a home in Delaware. My siblings and I are so thankful for all that you have done to help with their happiness. They have loved working with you and truly count you as a wonderful new friend. I hope to meet you soon.

Terry,
Sherrill and I want to express our heartfelt thanks to you, Tom and the entire team at Burns and Ellis Realtors for helping us through the sale and then purchase of our old and new homes. Back-to-back closings on the same day at the last minute. Wow, it still has us shaking our heads as to how you all pulled that one off!

Who would have thought we’d call you on a Friday in May to list our house and then sell it the next day. Leaving us to scramble for a new home which you folks helped us find within just two weeks! Absolutely crazy but you pulled it off with a lot of hard work, dedication and dogged determination!

You pointed us to Cathy Pettee at Supreme Lending for the financial part of the deal and we cannot tell you how easy she made it for us to understand, in layman’s terms, what the transaction would require through the process, and then at the day of closing. She was a true “miracle worker” who kept us informed every step of the way. Please extend our thanks to Cathy for all her hard work!

It’s often said if you want the best go with the best. With Burns and Ellis we knew from day one we were in the best of hands and no other realtor in the area would provide the service and commitment to making sure we were satisfied one-hundred percent at the closing of both homes. You proved over and over again we made the right choice!

We thank you again and wish you and your team nothing but “Sold” signs in the future!
Tom and Sherrill
Terry - thank you so very much for all you hard work - you are simply the BEST!! Deb and I were reflecting on the many real estate transactions we’ve been a part of and we both agreed that you and Tom are by far the best in the business. We’ve had some very good agents but none them hold a candle to you and Tom. I know there is a lot ahead to deal with but I am truly grateful that we will be working through things with you two.
Have a wonderful evening and look forward to seeing you soon.
Diana
