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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!"
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
I was selling my house. I asked my lawyer if he could recommend someone. He gave me Shalini's name. The best recommendation ever. I liked her the moment I met her. I could tell right away she was smart and on the ball. She did everything she said she would do. She always got back to me right away when I would call or text her. She helped me through every step of the process. I have sold and bought a few houses in my life and she was truly the best realtor I ever had. She is very knowledgeable about her profession and knew the answers to all my questions. Amazing! It’s hard to find anyone these days who is excellent at their job and a pleasure to be around. Shalini made everything stress-free and painless. I can’t say enough good things about her. When you meet her you will understand how great she is. I will wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone selling or buying a house in this area. Thank You, Shalini. You are Awesome!

You will not be disappointed. We thank Edna for taking the journey with us as our realtor in both the sale of our old home and the purchase of our forever home. We were extremely pleased with her knowledge of the real estate markets and her diligent efforts in working with us for the sale and purchase every step of the way. From strategic negotiations to recommending a trustworthy financial institution, Edna was professional. She made what could have been a daunting task, a pleasant experience.
Best in State! Shalini is an amazing person, knowledgeable, cordial, great professional demeanor. Took me through everything to know about buying a home. Kept up with me on everything, So much more than I mentioned . I don't usually write reviews. I have had 3 houses and never met a person that is so very enthused about her job! Amazing young lady with a great attitude, what more can I say, words are not enough. In my situation, Shalini helped me get through some tough times, to much to explain. Its simple, she has a direction of go forward and she's genuine! Down to earth. Bravo! Shalini. Also, as a disabled person she understood and offered to help me get to where I need to be in this beautiful home. Bravo Shalini!
Edna Givens came through in the sale of my home in Fox Hall. I was looking to sell quickly and that wasn't happening until Edna became involved. She went above and beyond with some difficult obstacles to work around. Her patience, understanding and knowledge made the process so much easier. If you are looking for someone to help you sell your property, I highly recommend Edna, you will not be disappointed.
When we were ready to buy our first home together, we contacted Edna Givens right away. While working with her on the sale of a previous home we got to know and see just how dependable and trustworthy she was. We had a lot of things on our wish list. Edna took us to see several homes and we put an offer on one that did not get accepted, we were extremely disappointed. The next day Edna presented a home that we skipped over several times while looking, she said "just trust me, I think you will like it". Edna knew what we wanted better than we did! We fell in love with the space, the proprietary and the view. Edna has become family to us. If you are looking for a realtor with experience and dedication, put her in charge of your next home purchase, you will not be disappointed.
When my mother wanted to relocate from Long Island to Delaware, the first thing my wife did was call Edna Givens. We knew this was going to be a difficult task working between two states and buying and selling a home at the same time. Edna was able to put us in touch with an excellent realtor on Long Island for the sale of that house and she went to work right away to find the perfect home for my mother. Edna took on extra duties with the purchase of the new home that I do not believe any other realtor would do. My mother calls her new home her "safe haven" she absolutely loves it! My wife and I are relieved that my mother is happy, safe and content in her new home. Transitioning from a place she has lived her entire life, taking on a new life after the passing of my father has not been easy, but Edna was able to take one of those burdens and find her the perfect home. If you are looking to relocate and want someone that will go out of her way to assist you, please do not hesitate to call Edna Givens.
Get your Realtor based on a good recommendation. This was worth it when I worked with Shalini Sawhney. She was a dedicated person, always available when you needed to reach her, she would get you the best deal, transparent and very friendly. I truly felt that she worked for me not for the sellers. Buying a house is always a stressful process but getting the right realtor will make that process very smooth cause you do not end up making your biggest financial mistake of your life.
What a great team effort! From the first meeting, we knew this group had the right stuff to help us sell our house. The job they did on the listing and the virtual tour had our house sold in 2 DAYS!! We highly recommend this agency to get maximum results.
Maggie is first class! She has a bunch of resources to help you get any work you need on your home completed before the sale. She’s always responsive and professional. I’d highly recommend her.
I am convinced that fate brought Shalini Sawhney my way! In times when customer service is virtually nonexistent, I found in Shalini the MOST amazing service humanly possible. She is one of a kind! If I had a question, it was answered virtually immediately. From the very first meeting, her professionalism shined through. Selling and moving are no doubt one of THE most stressful things imaginable, but Shalini made it easier than I could have imagined. Five stars are not enough!
Being a first-time home-buyer - we did not have any experience with anything and needed a lot of guidance. Shalini Sawhney was our awesome realtor from Burns and Ellis, who helped us to navigate every step of the process. Her patience, punctuality, and accessibility would inspire confidence and trust in any buyer, not to mention her warm and affable demeanor that puts everyone at ease right away. I am grateful that she was recommended to us by other friends as our realtor. I will wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a house in this area.
We were referred to Shalini Sawhney for relocation to Delaware. Shalini has been very professional, knowledgeable, and extremely well versed in the real estate market. She has worked diligently, expertly, and cheerfully as she guided us through the process of buying our new home. Shalini's knowledge of area resources is par excellence! Shalini consistently identified and helped us to connect with local resources we needed to complete the purchase of our new home. We highly and completely recommend Shalini Sawhney for all of your resource needs.
Buying a home had always been a dream of mine, and 2021 had thrown every obstacle at me but I was so grateful to finally fulfill my main priority! Working with Jenna was by far my favorite part of the process. Jenna made me feel like her main priority even though she balanced multiple clients, in the same boat as me! She fulfilled every part of what I wanted! I absolutely love my house! Burns and Ellis rocks! Maggie and Jenna are amazing! If you take one thing from this review, contact Jenna today! You won’t be disappointed!
My wife and I worked with Jenna LaFermine. We were recommended to her by our former realtor and we are grateful she connected us to Jenna. We were limited in our time to search for the right home and Jenna began the process the same day we spoke to her. She was prompt, organized, and diligent with us throughout the entire process. When we were losing hope of finding something, she continued to be positive and encouraging. She was incredibly patient through the entire process as viewed many properties. Once we found the right one, she continued to accompany us closely until our settlement. The entire process was seamless and smooth. We are forever grateful for meeting her. She is a great asset to the Burns & Ellis team!
Maggie Haass from Burns & Ellis was absolutely incredible during the process of selling our rental property. She took care of every detail of preparing for the sale, crossing all of the t's and dotting all the i's to make it happen. We knew we were in good hands! When we're ready to sell again we will be working with Maggie for absolute certainty!!
Edna was absolutely wonderful in helping to sell our rental property. She facilitated all the necessary repairs in a very timely manner which was very much appreciated since we ended up welcoming our daughter the same week we settled. She took that weight off of our shoulders and everything moved right along! She explained everything as we went along and made it a stress-free process for us! We shared many laughs together! We would highly recommend Edna to anyone looking to buy or rent.
