Delaware Home Builder – Schell Brothers Dominates Regal Awards

By Schell Brothers, in All Communities

On Friday, May 7th, the Delaware Association of Homebuilders held the 18th annual Regal Awards ceremony to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of its builder and associate partners.  Billed as the “Black and White Gala”, the elegant event honored the best Delaware home builders for achievements in marketing, advertising, architectural design, interior merchandising, project management, and sales.

The Schell Brothers family of companies – which also includes Echelon Custom Homes, Echelon Interiors, Zero Energy, and Renew-Energy Smart Renovations – walked away with 30 awards, representing nearly one-half of the 65 prizes handed out to builders during the evening.   The scope of honors presented to Schell Brothers spoke volumes about the company, a small homebuilder in Sussex County Delaware, as the gracious group received recognition in nearly every category.  Seven awards went to the Schell Brothers/Echelon in-house marketing team, including best image campaign and best websites for both a production and custom builder.  Echelon Interiors walked away with three honors for model merchandising in new Delaware homes, ranging from condominiums to single family residences.  Several individual team members were recognized for outstanding performance in categories that included selections coordination, sales, and project management for Delaware new construction.  The grand finale of the evening was the announcement of the outstanding residential communities in Delaware, grouped by price range.  Schell Brothers took home three grand finale awards for Breakwater in Lewes, Independence in Millsboro, and Heritage Creek in Milton.  Independence received honors as the best active adult community in Delaware.

When asked to comment on receiving the unprecedented number of awards, Chris Schell, owner of Schell Brothers, was quick to give credit where it was due, “I couldn’t be more proud of our company than I am right now,” Schell said.  “This night really shed light on how far we’ve come as a company and how much we have accomplished together.  It’s been an awesome journey and this is just the beginning.  If we can achieve this kind of success in the worst real estate market in history . . . just think what we can do during the recovery.  This team is capable of extraordinary things.”

Schell Brothers is located at 55 Cascade Lane, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Twin brothers Chris and Preston Schell have set the standard for home building excellence and responsible land use in Coastal Delaware.
