Very pleased with the process of selling our house. It was fast and we highly recommend our realtor Jenna La Fermine for any future home buyers or sellers. She is a professional person with integrity, respecting all the rules and regulations, and a very hard-working kind person.
This was my first time buying a house and Jenna LaFermine helped me through the entire process. She was a blessing helping me with all my questions and could always point me in the right direction. I would highly recommend Jenna, especially for first-time homebuyers!
I want to share that we had a positive experience with Jenna in selling our home in Middletown. Jenna was very professional and responded to all questions and concerns. I would highly recommend Jenna for all your real estate needs.
We want to share our experience working with Shalini as our realtor not just selling our house also helping us to buy our new home. We are very thankful to her for finding us a very beautiful home. Her knowledge of real estate and her patience kept us informed throughout the whole process and each and every step she was with us. Thank you so much, Shalini once again for everything your hard work paid off by putting smiles on our faces.
We had an excellent experience with Ms.Sawhney. She went above and beyond in finding a nice home for us. She is professional and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Ms.Sawhney if you are looking for a realtor.
I’ve known Jenna for a number of years professionally and when it came time to sell my townhouse, she was the ideal choice of agent. She was always able to guide me through the process and was both aggressive and patient. Her suggestion of which of multiple offers to choose was spot on & professional. I can’t imagine a better outcome thanks to Jenna!
After dealing with the "big name" realtors, I happened to come across Burns & Ellis Realtors. Shalini was our agent and she took care of us from start to finish. She was even able to connect us with a lender who got us a lower APR and a higher approval amount. If you are in the market for a home, do yourself a favor & call Shalini at Burns & Ellis.
Shalini Sawhney recently helped us find and land a home in this crazy competitive market. Communication is key with any real estate transaction but especially when every property ends up with multiple offers. Shalini's response time was ALWAYS immediate. She makes you feel like you are her only client. We had to take quick action on a listing that was only hours old, and she made sure we got the house we wanted. Couldn't be more satisfied with her! Thank you so much, Shalini!
Edna Givens did a wonderful job of selling my mother's home. She took care of everything that came up and went above and beyond to make sure the house sold. Edna is professional and personable and I appreciate all her hard work.
There are no words to describe just how amazing of an experience I had working with Shalini Sawhney at Burns & Ellis Realtors. Buying a home or selling a home can be an intimidating process for those of us that don't do it regularly. Shalini instantly made me feel comfortable and at ease. She went to great lengths to make sure that I understood every step of this process and that we worked together hand in hand. She wasn't just coming in and telling me what to do and expecting me to trust her. She explained why we were doing everything we were doing in a way that made it easy for me. She went several extra steps beyond when it came to making sure my home was ready for sale when it came to securing the right contractors and deciding the right price point. Shalini handled the unexpected things that came up with the utmost professionalism and confidence. I can't say enough about how she made a potentially difficult and intense process just seem so easy. She doesn't only care about selling your home - she actually sincerely cares about you. Shalini is truly worth every single one of these five golden stars. Thank you so much, Shalini!
Jenna Lafermine was our realtor and I can say the process was smooth thanks to her professionalism, knowledge, and her consistency in following up on all issues. She always made us feel important and that we were never a bother. Thanks to aiding us in finding a home that had to deal with special family issues, my 87 yr mother is even happy with our new home. She comes highly recommended Saying thank you, Jenna doesn't cover it.
I was apprehensive about moving, but my wife really wanted to get a larger home so we can entertain more and have space for the kids to come visit. Edna was my SIL's realtor when they bought their home 3 years ago and I remembered how much they appreciated her hard work in finding them the perfect home. So with that in mind I made the call to Edna. With how crazy the housing market, she explained exactly what we could expect. Not only did she sell our house, she helped find us the perfect home as well. Through the whole process, Edna was very informative and never hesitated to answer any questions we had about the process. After looking at countless houses she was patient with us and wanted to make sure we found the house that "we" wanted and not just to sell us the next available house. I cannot recommend Edna enough for someone who is looking to buy or sell a home. You would be hard pressed to find a better realtor. Thanks Edna..truly appreciate all you did for us.
Our agent was Shalini Sawhney and she was very knowledgeable and helpful. She assisted us in making decisions on repairs that would help in the sale of our house. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a house and I’ve already referred her to a few of my friends
We loved working with Maggie Haass. She listened to what we were looking for in a home, and she was extremely patient with us. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to work with!
Maggie Haass did a fantastic job selling my home. She was completely professional, friendly, and always communicated with me about the ins and outs of the sale. I would highly recommend her!!
Edna, I wish to thank you for assisting with getting the property at 25 Kent Ave to settlement. As a for sale by owner, it was a pleasure working with you when you called with an interested client. With you taking the pressure off and dealing with the paperwork and all else needed to get to settlement, it was a much less stressful experience. Thanks again. If I decide of a need of a realtor in Delaware I will call.
I am so grateful and appreciative to Edna for an outstanding job on signing a contract for my home in 24 hours. It didn't even make it to the listing for the following week. Edna was very personal and comforting during my time of grieving. She called as well as spent time with me. I highly recommend her if you are seeking someone that cares about their customers.
Edna was a joy to work with, and the process from beginning to end was professional and surprisingly painless. She took care of everything. Most important to me is that she kept her line of communication open to us. If she couldn’t answer our call, she’d call back in short order. Edna made AND listened to our ideas and suggestions, therefore, completing the successful sale of our parents’  property “together” (even though she did all of the work)!
Edna was recommended to us by my best friend, a local real estate paralegal. We ended up buying the first house Edna showed us, but there were a lot of title and repair issues with the house. Edna was on top of everything, always available to answer texts and phone calls, and made sure to advocate for us as buyers the entire time. She will get it done no matter what!
We had several issues with selling our house, and every time I thought I had to pick up the phone, Jenna LaFermine said she would take care of it. She was honest, forthright, and efficient, with a smile. We were able to wrap up everything in a couple of weeks. I can heartily recommend Burns and Ellis.
Maggie Haass was my realtor in the sale of my home of 32 years. She didn’t just list my house, she knew exactly how to improve it to give the market exactly what it wanted. She literally held my hand through the whole process and handled everything for me. What should have been a very stressful time for me became stress-free. I had a signed contract within 4 days of listing it. I cannot say enough about Maggie. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking of selling their home or looking for a home to purchase. She is simply the best.
Tracy Surguy, with Burns and Ellis Realtors in Dover, sold my house. This is the second house Tracy has sold for me, and I couldn't be happier. She was extremely professional, helped me identify things that needed to be addressed before the house was marketed and took wonderful exterior and interior photos to market the house. She, with some help from Tom Burns, guided me every step of the way. I highly recommend Burns and Ellis Realtors for your real estate needs.
My agent (Terry Burns) was very professional, kept me well informed, and managed all the details making for a smooth closing. Could not have asked for more.
Shalini is the best! She sold my late mom's house, & helped me buy my condominium. I was a first-time buyer & seller, & she basically held my hand through the entire process. She's sweet, she's smart, she's honest, & she deserves a million gold stars!
Shalini Sawhney is one of the best out there! She is extremely professional and well versed in her profession. Shalini helped guide us through the selling and buying process, and always provided valuable insight when we needed to make decisions! Her demeanor is highly professional, but also very warm and welcoming! She responds to any emails/texts/messages in an incredibly timely manner and always has her clients best interest at heart!
When it came time to purchase a new home, we knew exactly who to call – Becky Curry at Burns and Ellis. We were lucky to know Becky from previous business, so we knew what to expect. Becky is very professional, responsive and treats you like family from the first minute. Becky took the time to find out exactly what type of home we were looking to purchase. Becky made sure the process was painless and even helped us when we got a little nervous. During our entire home buying process, everyone at Burns and Ellis was extremely helpful and always friendly. Due to Becky’s knowledge, patience, and dedication, we were able to purchase our dream home. Thanks, Becky, for being such an amazing realtor!
I can't say enough about Becky Curry / Burns & Ellis and my awesome experience with selling my home in Magnolia. It ended up being a long process and she was the perfect person to have on my side. She knew the market, the process, and was always available for guidance. Highly recommend!!
It was my personal pleasure to have you and Tom to sell our property. Blindfolded, I can use your service for our future real estate deal or refer anyone to you looking for the best service in the industry. All best wishes.
Selling our first home with Edna was an easy and painless experience. She guided us through the process with a great level of expertise that reflects her experience as a real estate agent. Through her efforts, we quickly had multiple showings and offers. She helped us understand the parameters of the various offers so we could make the best decision. She was always just a phone call away for any of our questions and responded to us ASAP. She made selling our home a pleasure.
Heidi Lutman was our relator and she was absolutely amazing. She was very knowledgeable and so much fun to work with. My husband and I were first time home buyers and we came from California. We didn’t know much about basements etc. she really helped educate and guide us every step of the way. She was available when we had questions. Provided us with a great selection of houses when we started looking. She helped us find the perfect home. I would definitely recommend Heidi and Burns & Ellis Relators.
