Sold a home in 2013.
Ok, I don’t normally write reviews.....who has time to do this!!?! but I hope that someone reads this and decides to choose Adam Linder as their realtor.

I was having a conversation with a co-worker the other day and we were talking about our opinions on the best realtor in the beach area. Many names were thrown around, there are so many good ones...... and we actually both landed on Adam from the Oldfather group. The ironic thing is he is fairly new to the business here but he's like some kind of an anomaly. He is sharp as a tack, responsive, has a level of work ethic that is unreal. Oh and he is really funny and overall just a pleasure to be around.

I have heard the same praises about him from co-workers. Working for a builder....It's common for me to hear clients say that realtors "push their own resales" and pick and choose what they want to hear from their clients...basically showing what they want to sell instead of what the clients actually need. This goes against everything we have all been taught in the industry. “Selling” is about asking questions and understanding needs and actually caring. Those of us who love what we do take this seriously. Adam gets it. The great thing about this review is that so many ppl love Adam, when he reads this he will have absolutely no idea who wrote it. Lol

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Lewes, DE.
After no activity on the sale of our house we switched realtors and went to the Oldfather Group. What a great decision. Their professionalism and marketing approach, were instrumental in bringing in a wide range of potential purchasers which culminated in the sale of our house. From great pictures which showed our house beautifully to multiple linkages to web sites, the sales campaign was thorough and fantastic. The Oldfather Group is the best and are highly recommended.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Lewes, DE.
My wife and I recently had a wonderful experience with the team of Mariya Oldfather and Nancy Capps. We live in PA and had little knowledge of the current home market in the Lewes/Rehoboth DE area. After describing our interests to Mariya, she showed us a well-selected set of properties, answered our many questions, effectively described the home market and guided us through the process. Mariya is a good listener and responded quickly to our requests, many of them via email and texting since we were out of town. Nancy helped guide us through the steps leading up to an uneventful close. We recommend this team with the assurance that they will provide you with a valuable and supportive home-buying experience!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Bethany Beach, DE.
We worked with Mariya Oldfather and the team at Sotheby's Ocean Atlantic. Mariya is very knowledgeable and was a pleasure to work with. She and her team were very responsive, replying to emails/texts and phone calls immediately. The team was very familiar with properties throughout Rehobeth, Lewes, Dewey Beach and Bethany.

Bought a home in 2013.
Mariya and Dusten are very professional, responsive, cordial and timely. The couple were dual agents as we found our new home on zillow. We would certainly recommend and use them again.

Sold a home in 2013.
I am a big fan of Dave Ramsey as I listen to his show most every day.When we decided to sell our house, I wanted to check out Dave's ELP in the Bethany Beach Delaware area.We had a contract on our house within 3 months of employing the Oldfather Group.Settlement was to be in another 3 months or so.They were everything you would want in a real estate sales team.They would return phone calls asap.We relied on texting info back and forth alot of the time and they would always respond within minutes in most every instance. It did not matter if I asked them a question on Sunday morning at 7 am or Friday night at 9....they were there for me. When they did not know answers to my questions, they would find out and get back to me in a short amount of time.I never felt frustrated dealing with them and never felt that they didn't have my back through the entire process.Our house was in an LLC which was more detailed and made it a bit more difficult in my mind. They never got upset or displayed any negative vibes as more requests were called for by the buyer's attorney as settlement loomed.Dustin was the sales guy and Mariya was the grunt and numbers person making sure every little detail was taken care of.Both displayed the upmost honesty,integrity and professionalism.You never know what you are going to get when you call a real estate agency but I am glad I used the Oldfather Group to sell my property. The strange thing about all this is the house we sold was a vacation home 100 miles away from my home in Baltimore.So hiring a company who you never met with face to face makes it even more important that you can trust and rely on.Knowing they were a Dave Ramsey ELP put my mind at ease that I was in good hands!!!!

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2013 in Millsboro, DE.
Dustin was very helpful in the sale of our home. With his help we were able to sell our home in a relatively short time for a reasonable price in a very tough market. His staff was particularly helpful in getting us through the process from contract to settlement with no problems.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Greenwood, DE.
We most appreciated the peace of mind we enjoyed during the sales negotiations. Mariya's input during the actual negotiations saved us several thousand dollars. Their staff is equally professional. They always responded quickly to any concerns or questions we had during the listing period. We will use them again.

Sold a Mobile / Manufactured home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Millsboro, DE.
We were very impressed with the professionalism of the Oldfather Group from the beginning. We heard an ad on the radio and decided to try them out. We had another real estate office previously and were very disappointed by their attitude and lack of communication after we signed with them. When Dustin came to sign us with the Oldfather Group, he was very professional, wearing a suit, tie, white shirt with cuff links! Also, when the photographer came to take pictures, he spent several hours getting the shots lined up, etc. We were very impressed with the results. They also had us on several web sites, with weekly updates. I would definitely sign with them again!

Buying a home in Delaware while living in Illinois is quite stressful; however, Mariya and her group were very helpful and always answered my emails quickly. Once I found the house to buy, they arranged everything from beginning to end. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a real estate group. I couldn't have been happier with their service.
