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!
Jamie Goyal
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.
Linda Robinson
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.
Linda Robinson
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!
Cheryl Anderson
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!
Breanna Hollifield
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%!
John Lahaniatis
Shalini Sawhney was very professional and helpful in ever aspect of purchasing a home for my parents. She went above and beyond with any request we asked of her. She was always available to answer questions.

I would highly recommend Shalini for your new home adventure. She’s the best.
Valerie Van Pelt
Jenna is so great that we’ve used her not once but twice for both buying and selling. She always keeps your best interest in mind and will go above and beyond for you as her client. HIGHLY recommend Jenna for any real estate services you need!
Amanda White
Our agent, Jennifer Gallagher, was extremely helpful as we searched for our new home in Dover. She was knowledgeable and patient with us throughout the process. We definitely recommend Jennifer.
Patrick Collins
Shalini Sawhney is absolutely fantastic. She listened to us, spent time getting to know us, and after much work on her part…found us our dream home. We are forever grateful to her. She’s ethical, smart, and a lovely person. Don’t hesitate to work with her.
Janell Upton
Shalini is AMAZING. We were in a rough situation, our house being left a mess by “renters” we had to evict. The once beautiful house was in rough shape and we were across the country (military life). Shalini was referred to us by a friend and she is a miracle worker. She had contractors fix things up, she managed all of that economically, quickly, and efficiently. Other realtors wanted us to put in 40k more than she did and wanted to tamale months more to prep the house before selling (for much less than 40k more). Shalini knew the market well, identified what was needed, and really gave us much needed relief in our rough predicament. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fantastic (and far far beyond competent) realtor. If all people had her work ethic, reliability, and knowledge, the world would be a much better place.
Caitlin Justiniano
David and I would like to convey our gratitude to Burns & Ellis Realtors, Terry and Tom Burns, and Shalini Sawhney for their professionalism and compassion in handling the sale of our home. It was very hard for us; we lived there 27 years, and loved it dearly. Thank you.
David & Diane Partridge
My wife and I had a home in a neighborhood we loved for 16 years. We decided to sell the home and put our trust and into Jenna LeFermine from Burns & Ellis. From the first moment Jenna provided us outstanding guidance that allowed us to get our home on the market at a price we were happy with. She always was available no matter the time of day to answer questions or give us advice on all details of the real estate process. Our house sold very quickly and after closing settlement we reflected on what an amazing experience we had with Jenna and how well she represented Burns and Ellis. Jenna is our first choice in real estate and would highly recommend her to anybody that was interested in selling or buying a home.
Samuel Stiles
Jenna LaFermine was absolutely wonderful to work with. She helped our family through the difficult task of selling a parent’s home and made everything as easy as possible. She was always available and instantly responded to any questions we had. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Barbara W.
Jenna LaFermine was so so awesome! As first time home buyers, we asked her to find us a home in a town that seemed over our budget, and she ended up getting us one in that town for UNDER asking price! She went above & beyond our expectations and we cannot thank her enough!! It was a joy working with her - her knowledge, guidance, and willingness to always be there for us made this process easier. Not to mention the help from her team on The Haass Group as well! We would highly recommend Burns & Ellis Realtors, Jenna, and The Haass Group!!
Sierra L. & Connor E.

Sonya Gupta
I had the greatest experience ever selling my house thanks to the professionalism of Shalini Sawhney. Her smooth personality working with someone like me a former 27 year Air Force veteran, and a high octane individual was kept even keeled. She was always very flexible and had a come from behind the desk work ethic’s. I absolutely loved working with her totally. I would recommend any of my military colleagues or all individuals to seek her first to buy or sell a house or property. In a world that is so automated driven, it’s nice to work with a wonder professional!
Michael Jackson
A little over 14 years ago I found the perfect home with a Burns and Ellis realtor. The experience was wonderful. Recently an opportunity arose to find another home. I reached out to Jenna LaFermine, with Burns and Ellis to help me in this endeavor. I knew that I was in good hands with her, not only because she's passionate about what she does, but she also knows the market well. She cares about her clients, is patient and provides valuable input regarding the whole home buying/selling process. Additionally, she and her team at Burns and Ellis have contacts for every service you may need.... From home inspectors to painters. I am beyond thrilled with the home we found and am grateful for everything Jenna did!
Dorothy Cheatham

Shalini's dedication, enthusiasm, and vast knowledge and expertise of the real estate market in central Delaware truly makes her exceptional in this field! I highly recommend Shalini Sawhney without any hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell a home - you will not regret it!
