Meet the Scott Farnan Team


Scott Farnan, REALTOR®

Hello and thank you for taking the time to learn about the Scott Farnan Team at Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, Fox & Roach Realtors®.

My name is Scott Farnan, a life-long Delawarean and full-time real estate agent.  In 2018, after more than 12 years as a solo agent I started the Scott Farnan Team. My team and I are dedicated to our clients and have a passion for real estate, including the knowledge of Delaware and its neighboring areas that are required to deliver the results a client wants.


With the experience my team has developed and the indelible backing of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, Fox & Roach Realtors®, the Nation's leading REALTOR®, my team and I will guide you through the tough decisions, aim to reduce your levels of stress, and always be there to answer your questions.

To me there is no greater feeling than assisting a client with the purchase of a new home or helping someone achieve their financial goals with the sale of their property or purchase of an investment property. 

Scott is also the current New Castle County Board of Realtors President.
