Absolutely love working with her!

She makes sure she reviews everything with you before just handing you the paperwork to sign. I highly recommend her!


Christy Willkins is an excellent sales person with knowledge and know how to accomplish the job at hand, She is most efficient and handles things in a professional manner.

She is tops and I would have again in a heartbeat


Christy helped me purchase my home in Dover, she stayed with me when others might have given up.

Should say that I believe that she knew what I wanted and where I wanted to live. After many houses she found the one, and I am very happy..


Prior to selling my home, Christy served as my property manager for the past two years.

As a property manager, Christy was OUTSTANDING and she treated my house like her home. Her service was exceptional and was always very thorough, quick, and professional. Furthermore, she was always very upfront and honest with me and I respected that very much. When I was ready to sell, she was once again an exceptional realtor. This was my first time selling a home and Christy made it easy. I cannot recommend her enough and if there was an option for even more stars, she would definitely deserve that. If you are a seller, or a buyer, you will definitely not be disappointed in Christy and her top-notch service!



! 5 Stars They are a great team and definitely make buying a house much less stressful. Very friendly and detail conscious Thank you for finding the perfect home for me :)

My husband & I were lucky to meet Shirley at an open house and we immediately connected with her.

In addition to the open house, she showed us another home that day which was more to our liking but not quite the "right one". She was very attuned to our wants, wishes and needs and within a week she found it! She helped us and guided us through every aspect of a confusing time but kept it all on track and we were very happy with the results. (we love our home!) Next part of this experience was selling our "old house"! We did something I swore I wouldn't do and that was buy a house without selling the first one! In the uncertain real estate world, I was very nervous we had jumped the gun and would be paying two mortgages for the rest of our lives! However, once again Shirley came to our rescue and led us through it all. Recommendations were suggested to improve a few things and once attended to the house went on the market. We could not believe it yet very pleased when we received a call (with 4 days) that we had a buyer! Again, Shirley's advice helped us through to the end with very happy results. Over all, Shirley was very knowledgeable and very professional. we highly recommend her and her services.

It was a great pleasure having Christy as both my Rental Agent and Realtor when I sold my rental property in 2018.

She is professional, friendly, competent, nice and just an excellent professional. I would highly recommend her and I would definitely use her services again.


Christy handled the entire transaction in a professional friendly way going out of her way several times to settle a question or situation.

She is very fair and honest and I would readily deal with her in the future and recommend her to anyone.


Christy was the perfect choice in a Realtor!

Knowledge, prompt and positive, she helped us close on our first home. We originally came into contact while looking to rent, and she opened our eyes to buying possibilities. We highly recommend!

I would highly recommend Christy Wilkins at ERA Harrington Realty if you are looking for an experienced professional property manager within the local area.

Early 2018 I purchased a rental property in the town of Harrington DE and was in the need of a dependable local property manager. Christy was highly recommended to me by a few close friends and since utilizing her services she has undoubtedly stood up to her great reputation over the past year. She is very responsive, professional, understanding, and accommodating with any tasks at hand. Simply put, she gets things done when needed, and turnaround time is never an issue. Overall Christy has exceeded my expectations and I am fortunate to have such a superb property manager!


We highly recommend Christy Wilkins professional knowledgeable extremely caring every time we contacted her with a problem or questions she responded right away We had several problems with the bank we used for our mortgage and Christy helped us navigate our way through it all.

We told her what we were looking for in a home and a town and she found us exactly what we wanted. We are now in our dream home thanks to Christy. And she is such a nice person too!!


Very helpful and thorough.

Went out of her way on her day off to work with my schedule. Very prompt responses to all communication. Absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or rent a home!


Fernando helped us find the perfect home for our growing family.

As first time homebuyers, my husband and I were pleased with the assistance we received from beginning to end. He made the process easy. Fernando is very professional and personable.


While in Florida, she helped restore my house to renting condition.

She's been responsive to birth Mrs and the renters when things have gone wrong in the house. Her contractors are sick and responsive as well. She can manage my house as lunch as she'd like to.


Christy was phenomenal during the entire process of buying our first home.

Her knowledge of the area and of how the system works showed in looking at potential houses, negotiating a price, and being our guide through what to do next. Her responsiveness and awareness was superb; she could make you feel like the only client in the world. If I were to do this all again, I would choose her without a doubt





Christy recently became our property manager for a new property in Milford.

She impressed me from the beginning with her energy, her knowledge and expertise. Before even signing a contract she was giving me connections and information that I might need for the impending rental. After making the decision to go with Christy as our manager, she had an excellent tenant in not time at all, one that perfectly met our criteria and our needs. Could not have been more pleased with our decision to use Christy vs the other managers I interviewed.


Krysti was wonderful throughout the whole process of selling our home, which can be stressful at times.

From the start, she was helpful, positive, and motivated. She was never pushy or impatient, so we never felt uncomfortable with our decisions. We are very happy with how everything turned out and how quickly and efficiently she made it all happen. We recommend her highly, she is a Pearl in a large Sea of Oysters.


From the get go, Christy has been a pleasure to work with.

A wonderfully pleasant personality and extremely professional and knowledgeable. Persistent and successful in her efforts on my behalf.


Christy was very attentive from the beginning of our home buying process up until closing.

She was very informative and helpful. Christy is a go getter and got us showings almost immediately after we sent her a home we liked. We look forward to working with her, again, in the future!! Highly recommended.


From the moment we called Shirley from the posted for sale sign on a place that intrigued us, we were impressed with her efficiency and expertise.

She made this sale happen, and checked in on each step of the process.

We met Christy to begin our home search.

She set us up with an effective and efficient search based on our guidelines. She helped us navigate any situations, all the way to the closing table.

Professionalism, timely, thorough.

A pleasure to have someone who understands what type of property you are looking for and assists in obtaining various options based on your desires, wants and goals. Highly recommend Christy for your future purchase and will look to have her represent in the future.


I was associated with the couple beginning late 2018.

The team was referred to me. Mr. Ruiz compiled numerous homes for me to view. He was very professional in every sense of the word. Great communicators, friendly and approachable. Very knowledge of his job.



Wilkins is the best at what she does by far! I spent almost two months searching for a place to rent and in one day all my worries were resolved with the assistance of Mrs. Wilkins. I went to open house, met with her at the office, and within hours later, I was signing my lease. She shows passion in what she does. Even better, she gives opportunity to those who work hard accomplishing their dreams. Thank Mrs. Wilkins for working with me.

Christy has a good understanding of the local rental market.

She understands the DE State laws that govern landlords and renters along with tenant/landlord contracts. She always makes sure that I am in compliance with State laws. I have two properties that she manages and I have been very satisfied with my tenant performance. She handles clients with respect and courtesy


Christy knows the DE Rental Laws & keeps me aware of such and makes sure we are in compliance with such.

She focused on the profile of tenant I desired for a new project of mine and she located a good match.


Christy was instrumental in me buying my first property.

She was the guiding hand right from the beginning of the process till i signed on the dotted line and after. She is very knowledgeable about the local area and the real estate market. She made it very reassuring in dealing with the seller's agent as well as the bank and the attorneys. I will certainly reach out to her for any future property related issues i may have in this region.


We are using Christy as our property manager for our rental house.

she helped us prepare the house for viewing, listed the property and and found us a great renter in a week. Very professional and helpful, great to work with.

This was my second experience with Christy.

My first was a rental contract for an apartment. After we signed the rental agreement my wife had 2 strokes which made it impossible for us to move into the apartment. Christy worked with us to terminate the contract. When we decided to sell our home we called Christy. She worked with our children to get the house ready for sale. We had a signed contract for the sale within 3 days of the listing and made settlement in six weeks. We were unable to travel for the settlement and she made sure that we had all the legal documents signed via email. Thank you Christy for making this difficult time a lot easier. Dave and Ellen


Christy helped me sell my home after moving out of state.

She was attentive and very straight forward with me about the process. I appreciate that she was realistic while listening to my needs. She was great to work with and would use her again.

Me and my wife were looking for a house seriously in Dover, Delaware for the last 1 year.

Not very happy with our realtor, we were looking for someone who could help us. Luckily, my wife found Fernando Ruiz in Facebook. Our home search intensified after that.


Fernando and Shirley Ruiz are experts in the real estate field.

From the first day we met them, we knew they would be a good fit and would well represent us and have our best interest at heart. Their presentation was excellent and instilled a high level of professionalism and comfort which made our decision to list with them an easy one. Fernando and Shirley immediately went to work, took beautiful photographs and listed our home. They will honestly tell you what it takes to sell your home. We received a lot of showing requests due to the quality of their work. They guided us through the sale of our home step by step. They openly communicated everything during the process and were available for any questions we had. They made contact with a contractor for work to be done in our home. Due to their responsiveness, we were able to have the estimate completed and the work done in less than one week. We would like to take the opportunity to personally thank Fernando and Shirley for their efforts in the sale of our home. They are a great couple to work with and we highly recommend them for anyone one in the market to sell or purchase a home.


I have used Christy to locate tenants for and to manage 4 different rental properties over the past several years.

She is very pleasant, responds almost immediately, is very knowledgeable about the local rental market, and works hard. I would recommend her to anyone. I only gave Christy 4 stars on negotiating because I have not seen her negotiate with a tenant, but she gets good results!


Christy was recommended by a former client and she was a pleasure to work with.

We live in Florida and had to rely on her and our kids to look at properties. She worked around their schedules and ensured we were up to date. She is very knowledgeable about the area and quickly adjusted as she learned our preferences. She has a great attitude and is passionate about her work


I've worked with Christy for several years now.

She may not always tell you what you want to hear but this level of honesty is why she is so successful. I would definitely recommend her as I can state from first hand experience that she will apply herself to get you everything you need and within budget


Our experience with Christy was amazing!

Not only did she sell our house in a week, but she was also very kind, professional and attentive. I would definitly recommend her to anyone!!


Christy manages our rental property as we are out of state, she handles everything for us and only contacts us if their is an issue.

She is always on top of things

Ruiz is a very kind and knowledgeable realtor. He was very informative with the information he gave us. He constantly stayed in touch with updated homes. If you have a chance to use him I definitely would advise it.


Christy is great to work with.

She is professional, competent, curious, and personable. I rest easy knowing she is working for my interest. I've needed unforeseen repairs and since I do not live in the area her recommendations save me a ton of stress and leg work


Christy took the time to evaluate my needs and provide me with a list of homes that fit my criteria.

She was very patient and an absolute joy to work with. She was a blessing from the very start.


No question is to small, no concern is too insignificant.

Our experience from start too finish was one of a kind, in our efforts to sell our home and to find and purchase our new home. It was exceptional.

Perla Lancaster
