The owners of the Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby's International Realty in Rehoboth Beach recognized local real estate agent Nancy Capps with it's "MVP Award" for 2014 during a brief ceremony at the firm's Rehoboth Avenue office in early November.

Capps, a licensed agent since 2013 but who boasts more than 25 years in the industry, was honored for her commitment to the Oldfather team and for becoming known around the office as the consummate team player.

"From our first meeting with Nancy, we just found her to be a delightful person. She lives a life filled with optimism, gratitude and kindness – always with a focus on the positive and never an ill word," says Dustin Oldfather, the group's chief executive. "We are so fortunate to have her as a part of our real estate family. Because of her tenacity, dedication and infectious personality she is having an amazing impact in our lives and on her clients."

Originally from a small town in Virginia, Capps also spent a number of years as a licensed Emergency Medical Technician, in addition to being a licensed Realtor.

Her experience includes more than two decades in new home construction and five years working for a major real estate firm in North Carolina, before moving to coastal Delaware and eventually coming to work for the Oldfather Group in 2013.

She said she is humbled by the recognition but remains committed to being a team player and doing whatever is necessary to help the Oldfather Group maintain its ranking as one of the top real estate firms in Sussex County.

"I just do what I do, it's not really something I think about," says Capps, who specializes in residential real estate along the Delaware coast. "I didn't really think I was doing anything all that special, but it was nice to be recognized. I was surprised by it, but very grateful."

Headquartered in Rehoboth Beach, the Oldfather Group specializes in real estate sales throughout coastal Delaware, including Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island.
