Happiness Makes a Difference

To ensure that we have the happiest homeowners around, everything we do is associated with the principles of the Schell Brothers Difference. Two questions you’ll hear asked most among our team are: “What would our customers want?” and “How can we make our customers even happier?”

While some Delaware home builders focus on maximizing profits using cheaper materials, our philosophy is the opposite.

We are constantly searching for ways to provide buyers of new homes in Delaware with better materials and higher construction quality while maintaining attractive home prices. Schell Brothers homeowners consistently tell us that our homes provide a custom feel when compared with other Delaware houses for sale. When it’s time to choose a Delaware home builder, we know that you will also be happy to work with our team.
