Thank You for visiting The Phoenix Group

REALTORS® with eXp Realty

Hello, my name is Aaron Layton. I’m a residential specialist licensed in the state of Delaware. I’m also a professional REALTOR® with The Phoenix Group, powered by eXp Realty in Dover, DE. I operate alongside my partner Allison and together, we’re an unbeatable team. I’m very proud of them individually for their accomplishments and the good work they do. Working with them has been the high point of my life. Together provide an excellent service to all of our clients, even more so than we could individually. I wouldn’t want it any other way.

When we work each day, we focus only on delivering the absolute best service to our clients, individually and collectively. We share this sense of mission, and it comes out as we find ourselves always going the extra mile. In the end, this strengthens our bond and reinforces our brand promise to the community, if you will. I have no doubt that whatever our clients are going through, there’s nothing we can’t face and solve together. Therefore, we always invite everyone to communicate with us during a free consultation to find out about their reasons for selling or buying. Whichever our client needs, we’re experts at home valuation, marketing, and negotiation.

We consider our team of agents to also include the other real estate professionals we rely on to get every job done on time and under budget. This includes home inspections specialists, landscapers, contractors, home cleaners, mortgage brokers, and title companies. Let us know how we can help you reach your real estate goals. Remember, the call is free, there’s no obligation, and the information we provide will prove we can deliver on our promise to deliver the best deal and the best experience. Call today!

More Reason to Choose The Phoenix Group and eXp Realty as Your Real Estate Professionals!

When we work with buyers, we like to chat casually to understand the human being on the other side of the table. We think about their vision for a happy home, or for an investment, or whatever pertains to them. Whatever pressures are working on them at the moment, whether out of inspiration or desperation, we’re sensitive to the whole person. As a result, work with them to address their emotional concerns. It’s important to reassure someone to build interpersonal trust, beyond that of business credentials. When we make it clear that someone who can help cares too, that’s a powerful message.

This is the message we convey to all of our clients. Real estate is a very private and personal business because we walk through people’s lives in their homes, with their families, and deal with their fears and insecurities. So naturally, this tasks us with living up to the responsibility of the commitments we make. So whether big or small, we meet everyone at their own comfort level, to assure them not only of our desire to help, but we show a plan that can’t fail. For me, it’s all the more reason to work with a team of smart, enthusiastic professionals who care about our clients as much as I do.

Before we search the MLS to show a list of properties that meet their specific living standards, we address the issue of affordability. We’re always happy to prequalify someone for financing or down payment assistance as needed to address that concern first. Then, we cover terms for repayment and invite them to openly reveal their confidence in repayment. The last thing either of us wants is to see them file for bankruptcy a year later because of wanting to believe something that unfortunately just isn’t true. Let us show you how we can help you make the right decision to choose the right place to call home!

If You are Planning to Sell, Make Sure You Have the Right Real Estate Agent!

When we work with sellers, we’re prepared to go all the way to put together the best deal for you by also making a good deal for your end buyer. This is a crucial step in a winning strategy for you because we focus on delivering the right home to the right buyer, ensuring that they can get the funding to purchase. When you consider a real estate deal this way, you become aware that your money is actually coming from someone else’s bank loan.

That means your home has to be inspected by a bank in order to sell unless, of course, your buyer has cash. Of course, you don’t want this because this gives them too much advantage at negotiation, which drives the price down. Unless you own a distressed property that no bank will finance, we recommend

doing critical repairs that fit within your home’s projected sale budget. That way we have the advantage of using the MLS to market to the biggest pool of qualified buyers.

Once your home is showroom ready, I’ll take some pictures and update your MLS listing. I’ll effectively target anyone who has demonstrated a motivation to buy a similar house in your market, regardless of where they are in the world. Of these people, we look for those with a LOC (letter of credit) from their banks. Then, by driving as much competition over your home, and wowing them on the walk-through, We’ll negotiate every offer to the top of your asking price. We’ll do the same for you. Call us today to find out how we can sell your home quickly for top dollar!


Aaron was very patient and responsive to questions.
He showed us any property we asked to view.
He walked us through the home purchase process.
I would recommend him to any friend or family member.


Aaron was very patient and knowledgeable. He was a pleasure to work with. I never had to wait for any response from him. He always answered my questions promptly!!! He has a great knowledge of what is available and what fits my needs. I changed my mind on what type and price of the house I wanted and Aaron took it in stride and always sent me what I was looking for. A Plus!!! I would recommend him any time.

Aaron was fantastic to work with. We knew we were moving but not sure when. When we finally were able to move to the local area, he gave us tips and was very knowledgeable. We were able to buy a home within a week of moving to the area because of him.
