One Year at Bayside and Announcing a New Phase

By Josh Hay, in Bayside

Bayside Year in Review

It’s been a year since Schell Brothers released our first section in Bayside, and with the new Magnolia Crossing section opening up towards the Point this October 1st, it gets me thinking about how far we’ve come in just the past 12 months.

In that short time, we’ve sold 36 homes, and it doesn’t look like we’re going to slow down anytime soon. The momentum has carried us right into the new section of home sites in Magnolia Crossing. The homesites in this new phase are incredible, with some overlooking the golf course, conservation areas, and Bayside’s iconic magnolia tree. They’ll be available to purchase on a first come, first serve basis starting October 1st. Give us a call to learn how to reserve a home site today.

If that isn’t enough to get you excited, on October 11th, we’re hosting the grand opening of our highly anticipated Sanibel Model, the first of its kind to be built! I’ve been watching this home progress through construction, and let me tell you, our design team has taken this home to the next level.

The views are incredible and actually this home was designed specifically for Bayside to capture the water and golf course views in this community. I could go on and on about how amazing the Sanibel is, but you should really see it for yourself so be sure to visit us during our grand opening event.

By Guest, in Independence

Indy's Annual Arts and Crafts Fair

Come on out to the Independence Clubhouse this Saturday, September 13 from 9am until 2 pm for our annual Arts & Crafts Show.

Even bigger than last year, this year’s show at Independence will include artists and crafters selling everything from jewelry, pottery, fused glass, stained glass, photography, greeting cards, garden stakes, knitted, crocheted, embroidered and quilted items, and so much more! This is a great time to start your holiday shopping or to check off items from your gift list with handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces.

The event is entirely indoors and will take place rain or shine. Enjoy food, refreshments, and baked goods for sale at the show. Be sure to visit the Schell team at the Whimbrel model. This is your chance to walk through the beautifully decorated model and find out why the Whimbrel is quickly becoming the most popular floor plan at Independence. We hope to see you at the Arts and Craft Fair.

4th Annual Help Our Kids RadioThon

By Stephanie Kichline, in All Communities

4th Annual RadioThon

For the last three years our team at Schell Brothers has sponsored and participated in the Help Our Kids RadioThon hosted by Delmarva Broadcasting to benefit the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Children’s Hospital located in Wilmington, Delaware.

At Schell Brothers, we’re always looking for ways to give back to our community. Participating in this annual radiothon for the last three years has been just one way that we as team have been able to do just that. Whether it’s through donating money, or sending our team members up to answer phones for a few hours, it has been an honor to be an active participant in such an amazing event.

After an emotionally exhausting and incredibly exciting two days, we’re happy to announce that with the help of people across Delaware, Maryland, and even Pennsylvania, we were able to raise over a quarter of a million dollars! The money raised will be used towards the hospital’s expansion, which will provide a more comfortable space for the children and their families. Donations will also help in purchasing any necessary equipment that the kids may need while they are at the hospital being treated.

I speak for everyone here at Schell Brothers when I say how proud we are of our community. With your help we to raised $54,742 more than we did last year, making this year’s total $257,753. Thank you to everyone who donated or volunteered during the event!

If you didn’t get a chance to donate during the RadioThon, and you would still like to, visit our page at and click on the “Make a Donation” link. Remember, you don’t need superpowers to be a hero.


Experience Bayfront with Real Life Stories [Video]

By Grace Reardon, in Bayfront at Rehoboth

Bayfront Ammenity

As the Heiser’s prepare themselves for their routine morning stroll, Max waits patiently at the door for his favorite part of the day, his morning swim in the bay. And while most pups take their strolls on sidewalks along busy streets, Max excitedly walks the wooded roads throughout Bayfront at Rehoboth.

Jackie and Kevin Hesier are very well known amongst the Schell Sales team, not only for their infectious personalities and smiles (we love smiles), but mostly because they have visited all of our communities at one point or another while completing their “Schell Tour”. When they pulled into Bayfront, Jackie and Kevin say it was the “wow-factor” of the community that assured them that their search for their perfect home would soon be over. This was the community for them.

So what Bayfront experience created the Heiser’s “Wow Factor” moment? We may be a little biased, but it could be our pristine ½ acre homesites with phenomenal views or our established amenities, offering coastal luxury living. Because we are nestled alongside the Rehoboth Bay, our community offers a unique feel that is yet to be rivaled in our area.

It is uncommon to find a new community with tall mature trees and ½ acre homesites, which have been carefully carved out of unscathed land, gently hugging the wetlands that ebb and flow around our community to create views that are uninhibited by nothing but pure natural beauty. Although you feel like you’re in a secluded enclave of homes, you still have a Lewes address and are situated just minutes from the conveniences and attractions of Route 1.

The combination of Bayfront’s coastal resort feel, established amenities and convenient location offers the best of both worlds by combining elements of your primary home lifestyle with your vacation home feel.

Sawgrass North 1-2-3!

By Adam Pettengell, in Sawgrass North

Sawgrass North

As of Labor Day, we have been selling homes in Sawgrass North for 115 days! The official unveiling of Phase 3 is here, and to date, the community has recorded a total of 24 sales.

That means we’ve added a new set of homeowners every 5 days. All of this amazing progress without even being onsite! Our brand new Kingfisher model is nearing completion, and we couldn’t be more excited about our new home. The release of Phase 3 means that we’re adding wooded homesites, homesites that can accommodate basements, and homesites that are situated close to a pond.

With the continued success at Sawgrass North, our incentives have dropped and will undoubtedly drop further as the community continues to grow; that being said, it’s still a great time to be a pioneer of Sawgrass North, and this is your opportunity to take advantage of this amazing location at an incredible value. Remember, this is Rehoboth real estate, and it is the best piece of dirt and timber in the county.

Jordan and I are ready, are you? If so, contact us, and let’s make it happen.  There is nothing more special than having a 19971 zip code, trust me.
