Elliot was greatcatvshowing me 4 completely different communities so that I could choose the one I thought would be best for me. He was great at letting me run the discussion with sales reps but did pipe in if he thought I might have forgotten to ask about an important piece of information that I would want to know.

We had a pleasant experience working with Elliot Welan. We knew nothing about the area but Elliot showed us various options and lifestyles. He did not try to influence us in any way but simply gave us information on several communities. He answered our questions in a very informative manner and guided us through the process in a professional manner. We would certainly recommend Elliot if you you are looking for a retirement community in Delaware.

Active Adults Realty was a pleasure to work with. Elliott Welan was our real estate agent. He took us to see both resale properties and new construction. We are from NJ and knew very little about the Lewes area. My wife and I truly felt that both Elliott and Kathy (owner) cared about us. We were directed to communities in Lewes where they believed we would fit in. I never felt pressured to “buy now” and never felt like we were just a commission to the company. I would absolutely recommend working with Active Adults Realty.
