Culture of Happiness
I believe in empowering our teammates, which means inspiring them to thrive and be their best. A happy team makes me happy.
- Jamie, Director of Sales
At Schell Brothers, we put happiness first. Pretty innovative, right? And completely awesome! We believe that focusing on the happiness of our employees and homeowners before anything else makes us the best possible versions of ourselves, and that much better at what we do. Our culture of happiness and gratitude permeates everything - it’s what keeps us smiling and coming to work each day. Our WHY is happiness. What’s yours?
Designing new floorplans makes me feel like I’m really contributing to the growth of Schell Brothers and giving homeowners numerous options for their dream homes - both make me happy.
- Leon, CAD Draftsperson

Community Service Paying it forward, every day.
We roll up our collective sleeves every year to build the magical Schellville Christmas Village free to families in the community. We not only sponsor Lewes in Bloom; we "dig" in by helping to plant beautiful flowers in Gateway Garden. Schell enjoys a great partnership with the Lewes Historical Society and has donated to Grass Roots Rescue, a local nonprofit working to save at-risk animals in shelters and the community. Our Kudos for Cause campaign partners with non-profits to raise important funds one kudos at a time.
Real Estate Agents and Trade Partners We love building and collaborating with our partners.
Throwing parties is one of our favorite ways to truly connect with people and show our appreciation. We regularly host celebrations to honor homeowners, real estate agents, employees, and trade partners.
Firefly 2023 Work hard. Play hard. Smile often.
For the average Joe, the idea of spending a long weekend camping with your co-workers is the stuff nightmares are made of, and cringe-worthy at best; but when you’re a Schell employee and a weekend of camping means lounging in the drop-zone of an army of RV’s and 4 days of VIP passes to the Firefly Music Festival, you get really excited.
