In early 2021 The Hadley Group welcomed our newest member, although she has felt like a part of the group for much longer! Brian’s wife, Casey obtained her Real Estate License through The Delaware School of Real Estate & we are thrilled to have her! Like the rest of us, Casey was born and raised in Delaware, having grown up in Hockessin, she is a Dickinson High School & Wilmington University Graduate. Casey worked as a product training specialist for a local company before taking a brief hiatus to raise for their girls, Charlie & Darby. She comes to us with a wealth of knowledge of both people and real estate (after years of having a partner in the business!) She is excited to grow her own business and assist buyers and sellers in accomplishing their real estate dreams!

Casey & Brian reside in Newark with their two daughters & their 16-year-old dachshund, Bean.
