The Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby's International Realty, based in Rehoboth Beach, was selected recently for a special project overseen by the nation's top real estate coaching team, one of only 75 real estate offices nationwide picked for this exclusive honor.

Headed by Dustin and Mariya Oldfather since 2004, the small, tight-knit group of real estate professionals was chosen by Tom Ferry Coaching because of its "record production for Ocean Atlantic Sotheby's International Realty" over the last several years.

"For a boutique type real estate company in the nation's second smallest state to be chosen for a program of this magnitude is obviously a big thrill for us, as well as a huge honor," says Dustin Oldfather, the group's chief executive officer. "We're excited to work with Tom Ferry and Carl Rizzuto so we can continue improving to better serve our clients. Consumers in Delaware deserve a better real estate experience, and this is part of how we will meet that higher standard."

With more than a quarter-century of experience in the real estate industry, Ferry has influenced hundreds of thousands of real estate professionals through his coaching programs. He was also named the top real estate educator in the country by Swanepoel Power 200 and is the best-selling author of "Life! By Design."

The Swanepoel Power 200 is the most comprehensive list of influential CEOs, thought leaders and senior executives in the residential real estate brokerage business. It analyzes more than 1,000 individuals in the industry and ranks them based on various criteria including their personal influence, their tenure in the industry and the organization's significance and contribution to the industry.


"Training with a team of this caliber is only going to help us and our team members moving forward and we're excited to be traveling on this exciting path," says Dustin Oldfather. "We have our whole team involved and it's created a level of excitement around the office that is truly fun to watch."

The Oldfather Group has quickly established itself as one of the top real estate firms in Sussex County, helping more than 150 clients either buy or sell a home in the last calendar year.

According to broker metrics, a leading analytical tool for brokers, agents and Multiple Listing Services, the firm is number two in the county in terms of "buyer represented sales" and number three in Sussex County in total overall transactions.

With it's main offices in the heart of Rehoboth Beach, and satellite locations in Lewes and Bethany Beach, the Oldfather Group specializes in real estate sales throughout coastal Delaware.
