We were referred to Burns and Ellis from out of state through a colleague of mine who has extensive experience in real estate. Our agent, Jenna, was involved and almost always available (at some pretty extreme hours due to the nature of our schedule). When we made it out to Delaware to finally get into some homes, Jenna was waiting with over 10 houses to see on just day one and made herself extremely available in our 5 day trip to get into what felt like around 40 homes. If all the agents at Burns and Ellis show that much flexibility and commitment, you’re going to be in safe hands. They’re local, they know the area like locals and give you the inside track to knowing the area like a pro. HIGHLY recommend.

Maggie was absolutely fantastic! After a rocky start with another realtor, working with Maggie was a complete 180 and I was able to find and secure a home within 2 months of working with her! Something the other realtor I worked with couldn't do in 8+ months. Would definitely recommend her to anyone!
Kristen Karnbach
Amazing realtor option. Jenna LaFermine is very kind and helpful, especially since this is my first time buying a house. It was a very professional experience, along with all the necessary assistance that made the house buying process a lot easier.

I just sold my home in Dover, DE and had the pleasure to work with Jenna LaFermine. She kept on top of everything. Made everything easy and stress free.

Edna assisted my family and I in purchasing our home. Three years later, she assisted us in selling the same home. Edna did a fantastic job at getting it all done. She's very quick, efficient, and very professional. My family and I have been very satisfied with her work and I highly recommend Edna Givens. If you need someone to get the job done quickly and proficiently, she will definitely make this whole entire process a very pleasant one.
Thank you so very much for your time, and care through it all, Edna!

Amazing! Amazing is the best word we could use to describe Jenna!
From the moment we decided to use her as a realtor, she went ABOVE and BEYOND to help us find our home. Oddly enough we were blessed to have found and close on our home within a month. Jenna walked us through every step and was extremely supportive during this stressful time. I recommend anyone searching for their next home (or selling) to contact Jenna! She will do all in her power to help you achieve your goal.
Thanks Jenna!

We had an AMAZING experience with Jenna. She is SO SWEET and found us our PERFECT HOME!!!! Thank YOU!

We worked with Shalini Sawhney at Burns & Ellis Realtors and she was awesome!! She worked with my fiance and I while I was deployed and helped us find the right house in this wildly changing market. She had the best customer service we could have asked for, was always responsive throughout the day, and most importantly was patient with us in our unique circumstance. Would highly recommend Shalini to anyone looking for property in the Delaware area no matter the circumstance or what type of home you're looking for. She'll take the time to get to know you to find the best fit for you!!

There aren't enough great things to say about our realtor, Shalini Sawhney. She was friendly, patient, welcoming, honest, and gave great advice during our home buying experience. She always made us feel like her only priority with quick responses and detailed information at a moments notice. She was especially helpful with our situation as a military family searching for property with the sole purchaser communicating from afar. We would definitely use Shalini again for buying or selling property!
Kaylyn Chandler
I wanted to take the time to thank Shalini Sawhney on my house selling experience. She was more than a realtor; she became family. She had my best interest in making my dream come to fruition of moving back home to Virginia. I am a retired Senior Master Sergeant and after being gone since 1983, I decided to move back closer around family. This young lady made this stressful time so smooth for me and less of a headache. If any of my military family is selling or buying a house, please don’t hesitate to give her a call. In this period of time when professionalism and customer service has taken a back seat, she is in the forefront of exemplifying what it should be always. I promise you she will walk you through everything, every step of the way, chronologically up to date you go to closing. She is definitely a good wing person!!!!

Jenna LaFermine was an excellent realtor to work with. Her compassion, communication, and professionalism made my selling experience very positive! I would recommend Jenna to anyone in need of support navigating the buying/selling process.
Kelly Campbell
Edna is such an awesome realtor. She worked with us even when we didn't step up to the plate. She gave us some good pointers to help our house sell. She is a go-getter and has such a friendly personality. She definitely is the one to sell our house. Thank you for all of your help!
Violet & Stephen Marynowicz
I would like to thank Edna Givens for helping with the sale of my house. She kept me informed of all the dates and times needed; everything went easy. Thank you again. I would recommend her to anybody.

Maggie Haass! She is a ROCKSTAR! We spoke for the first time on a Saturday evening, saw a few homes on Monday, she called that night with a heads up on a home that was about to hit the market and we toured it on Tuesday and had an offer in by Tuesday night! We were thrown into the home buying market unexpectedly and Maggie was reassuring throughout the process. She is genuine, sincere, conscientious and kind. I really don't think you'll find anyone better! Thanks Maggie!
Andrea Balcena
Just recently sold my house in Dover, DE with the assistance of Jenna LaFermine.

She was amazing and incredible to work with! I lack a lot of knowledge in just housing/real estate stuff in general and I let her know that from the beginning. From there, she basically held my hand the whole way and took the time to openly communicate to me anything that was going on. Super appreciative of her and I'd recommend her to anyone!
Marvin Amposta
We would publicly like to thank Burns and Ellis Realtors, and especially Shalini Sawhney for their expert and professional assistance in selling our home. We had a short notice job offer with a short time to sell. The first house viewings began on the first day of listing and received three offers far above asking price by the second day. Shalini kept the entire home sale process under control at all times and provided rare insights into preparing, listing, showing and completing the sale. Shalini went above and beyond, our expectations and masterfully attended to every detail. We would not have had such a successful home sale closing on our own, without her knowledgeable and dedicated guidance. Shalini is a superstar in the world of realty and we are grateful for everything she did for us.
Terry Glaum
Edna Givens is a great realtor and all around great person. That's twice she's worked wonders for me; when we bought and again when we sold. What a great lady.
Melvin R. Jensen
Maggie and Jenna were wonderful. They embraced what we were looking for and helped us find it, even though it took several months. We look forward to working with them again in the future. Wouldn't think of working with anyone else!
Marilyn Smith
Thank you Edna for taking care of our housing needs. From when we first arrived in Dover, you were the only agent who really listened to our needs. You found us our home and remained a good friend. When we wanted to do home improvements, you guided us on what would bring value. And as our time in Dover came to a close, you sold our home. Thank you again.
Gregg Springer
Maggie Haass sold my late mother's property, quickly and painlessly. I live in another state and she managed all of the details that I could not be there to arrange. I would recommend Ms. Haass for anyone's real estate transaction.
Carl McKinney
I enjoyed working with Maggie Haass during the process of selling my home. She was very professional and knowledgeable from start to finish. I would highly recommend her!
Robert Hayes
Edna was absolutely amazing to work with when purchasing our first home. We were walking into this process with little knowledge on buying a home and she made this process a breeze. Edna walked us through this process step by step, answering all of my questions in a timely manner. She is very knowledgeable in her work and went above and beyond with every aspect of this task. She made this progress quick, efficient, and she was very professional. We would hands down highly recommend Edna to anyone who is in the process of purchasing a home.
Karley Womax
The best real estate agent in Dover. There are not enough words to describe the excellent care we received from Jenna. My husband and I lived in Dover for 52 years and the decision to move was overwhelming for us. I contacted Jenna on selling the house and from the first meeting till the settlement day she was with us every step of the way. We needed minor repairs and one major repair. Jenna was there, she knew who to get that was reasonable and good. I had anxiety attacks and Jenna would talk me off the bridge. She took the time to talk to us about the move. She was the greatest. But more importantly, she knew we needed to sell quickly but she priced our house for both getting the best buck for the bang and attracting buyers. We sold to the first person who looked at the house. And it was listed for I think only three days. She was with us every way from the point to the end. That to me is excellent service and above the normal call of service. She had to also resolve issues for the sellers real estate agent so we could move forward. She is by far the best.
Cathy Gregory
Jenna LaFermine's expert knowledge of the market forces in Dover, Delaware was the prime reason why we were able to sell our house quickly and at a price point that was fair for both buyer and seller.
Jenna was more than a sales person, her expertise in marketing, her words of encouragement, and her many suggestions made getting the house ready for sale most helpful. I am certain that it was her untiring assistance and encouragement that made the entire process work as well as it did.
Frank Gregory
Dear Edna Givens,

Thanks again for your enthusiasm, optimism, and encouragement in the listing and sale of my Marydel, Kent County, Delaware property. From the moment I walked into the Burns and Ellis Route 13 Offices and met you, to the transactions for settlement, you were a gem. I don't imagine a more suitable pairing of Seller and Agent than my experience with you. I wish you continued success and to all your future clients I would say, "You chose well!"
Carl J. Solberg
Shalini Sawhney was very friendly and helpful. I was a first-time seller and she made the process so easy. Shalini was very considerate and always made sure I was updated on the process. I would give her a 5-star rating. I plan to refer others who are looking for a realtor.
Gail Henderson
We are so pleased that Edna was able to market and sell our house at the asking price under difficult circumstances. We are very thankful to her for all of her help!
Paul and Eleanor Lawless
I was referred to Shalini Sawhney through my listing realtor for the home I sold in another state. When my partner and I met Shalini for the first time We instantly knew it was a great match. Shalini was welcoming and very responsive to our needs. She has the perfect personality for her job. She is upbeat, positive, and attentive. The experience of finding a home in an unfamiliar town was made much easier with her guidance and extensive knowledge of the area. We ended up exactly where we should be for our lifestyle and that is due to her outstanding professional capabilities as a realtor. We are thankful for her help and very much look forward to settling into our new home. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Richard Keller
We had a great experience with Jenna LaFermine. We contacted her about listing our home for sale and after she viewed it, immediately told us she had the perfect buyers. She is definitely very in tune with her clients! A very attractive offer sheet followed five days after the first showing. SOLD. Jenna knows the area well and her experience in rental properties was valuable too. She kept us updated on the progress toward closing and was very proactive in shepherding the closing process. Bottom line- closed on schedule. Great job, Jenna!
Scott Erikson
Jenna was amazing !! If I could give more stars I would. Jenna was there for every little detail in this process and even when I wanted to give up she was faithful and loyal. I am more than happy with my house and I feel secure working with them again. I never felt like I was pressured or even overbearing to Jenna. This place is definitely worth its 5 stars. They employ great people!
