About Us

We at Maggio Shields Real Estate pride ourselves as a small boutique brokerage providing a comprehensive approach to your buying experience.  We will happily offer guidance on Sussex County, and help you find exactly what you are looking for in our 1,196 square miles of happiness.  We make buying real estate by the sea an exciting endeavor, almost a treasure hunt, and with our proven track record it won’t take long before you find your p(l)ot of gold.  

Be assured we are smart, savvy, and seasoned Delaware Realtors who carry a large portfolio of new construction, resales, and luxury properties including beachfront properties for sale.  Our realty office is staffed 7 days a week so that we are always available for any questions you may have about your property sale or new home purchase.  Our agents work together as a team through each stage of the buying and selling process, thereby providing you the best expertise whether it’s contracts, finance, marketing, or settlement that’s being handled.

Our experienced realty agents will:

  • Develop a marketing program for your property
  • Provide worldwide exposure utilising internet marketing
  • Complete a competitive market analysis of your property
  • Review the finance options best suited to your particular situation
  • Install professional real estate brokerage signage at property
  • Submit all offers, provide negotiation assistance, and estimate net sales proceeds prior to acceptance

Our estate agents still get a charge each time one of our clients buys a home in the area that we love so much.  Even my 11 minute commute to the office over our Indian River Bridge is envied by my clients from the Beltway and Turnpikes, and our Delaware beaches are classified as having some of the most beautiful seaside properties in the U.S.  

Generations of families have enjoyed our quaint, small town charm so characteristic of Delaware's coastline attractions; and fallen for our slower, calmer way of life... and lower taxes! Everything is close-by when you are the second smallest state at 100 miles long and just 30 miles wide.  Our Beach resorts provide ample walking and biking trails that make vacation visits convenient and affordable with Delaware's tax-free shopping, dining, & entertainment. 

When buying in Delaware, you are not just purchasing a house by the beach, or as an investment property, you are buying into an entire lifestyle that existed prior to the first settlements and 28 Colonist in 1631.  

Call us today and let us assist you in finding your new residence along the Delaware coast or inland Bays.
