Why Retire to Delaware

Delaware has been recognized as one of the top states in the nation for retirement and Sussex County leads the way in attracting new homeowners to the state. Known for our beautiful beaches, tax-free shopping and slower pace of living, it is easy to understand why so many desire to call Delaware home. Our beaches are only a few hours from major cities such as Washington DC, Northern VA, Philadelphia, Annapolis and Baltimore.  For many new residents in Delaware, this means that loved ones, doctors, and other professionals are just a short distance from their new Delaware home.

What can we offer?

Simply put, our goal is to educate, negotiate and facilitate. We are happy to educate you on the areas at the beach, as well as the communities they have and match them with your needs. We then negotiate as your agent to find you the right home at the right price. Finally, we facilitate the process to make the buying experience here at the beach as easy as possible.

Why Work with an Agent?

It is a common myth that you can save money by not using a realtor, particularly in new build communities. Time and time again we have proven that this is not true. In most cases, on-site sales agents represent the builder, as well as the builder/seller’s interest. By using a designated buyer’s agent, you have now paired yourself with someone who is knowledgeable of the area and ready to advocate on your behalf.

Overwhelmed? So Many Communities, which one is the right one for you?

Our agents are knowledgeable of the areas, the communities and the amenities/lifestyles that they have to offer. Allow us to find what area we think may offer the most benefits to your needs and then begin to narrow down the home search. This can save a great amount of time and effort and may even put you onto an area you might not have expected! Each town and community has something special to offer.
