Bio

From the first moment Dustin & Mariya Oldfather caught each other’s eye during a chance meeting on Second Street in Rehoboth Beach, this place has held special meaning to them. Though road trips have taken them up and down the entire eastern seaboard and they’ve visited exciting locales around the globe—the windy streets of Chicago, the tropical sands of Key West, romantic Niagara Falls, Mariya’s birthplace in Bulgaria and romantic Buenos Aires—no place has captured their hearts in quite the same way as the coast of Southern Delaware.

The Perfect Sanctuary

Undoubtedly, Dustin & Mariya share a fondness for the area because it’s where they met, but for them, it’s so much more. The peaceful pond right behind their waterfront home is the perfect sanctuary to unwind and share a bottle of wine with friends after a long day or exciting journey. These adventurers also love nature and enjoy invigorating bike rides or hikes through the woods. They share a passion for gourmet food and appreciate the abundance of fine local dining. Their philosophy of life is to live it to the fullest by continually experiencing new things, and they relish knowing they can do it here.

Even before that day on Second Street, Dustin & Mariya’s lives traveled similar paths. They both were committed to higher education, pursuing extremely rigorous studies. While Dustin trained at the Florida Naval Base and studied molecular biology and nuclear physics, Mariya completed a challenging curriculum of math, language and computers, obtaining her degree in accounting from the prestigious University of National and World Economy in Sofia, Bulgaria. From the moment they met, they respected each other’s intellect, wit and core values. But more importantly, they admired their mutual desire to embrace life on the coast.

True Professionals

It’s no surprise that Dustin & Mariya have been able to turn their fondness for the coast into a successful career as real estate professionals. As a team specializing in Southern Delaware’s extraordinary coastal communities, they are able to provide their clients with more than information and guidance toward their home purchase or sale. They offer genuine enthusiasm for the lifestyle and a desire to help their clients make the most of it.

When you combine Dustin’s innovative thinking and extensive knowledge of mortgage programs with Mariya’s strong analytical, financial and organization skills you experience a noticeable advantage in today’s complex market. Add their technical savvy, heavy Internet presence and use of virtual tours and you have two valuable resources in real estate. Both Dustin & Mariya are also certified Senior Housing Specialists and work closely with many local builders so they are able to help clients in every stage of their investment portfolio, from new construction to downsizing.

Dustin & Mariya will soon be published in a book with multiple Best Selling author, Brian Tracy, called Counter Attack - Business Strategies for Explosive Growth in the New Economy. Their property marketing has been featured in The Wall St. Journal, The New York Times, Extraordinary Properties Magazine Journal and Delaware News Journal. They have appeared on CBS, FOX and WRDE television affiliates speaking on subjects ranging from branding, marketing and real estate.

Every year since 2004, the Lower Sussex Little League in Roxana has hosted the Senior League World Series softball tournament, one of just eight world series events organized by Little League International. And two years ago, officials added the Big League World Series to the mix, so now one-quarter of all Little League world events are held at the Delaware beaches, adding millions to the local economy during it's 10-day annual run.

Read all about this huge event for our area, as well as a few other fun and family-friendly happenings this weekend at the Delaware beaches, in this edition of the “Weekender Blog,” brought to you by the Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby's International Realty in Rehoboth Beach.

Weekend Happenings in Coastal Delaware

23 July 2015, 3:00 am

During the warm weather months, there are always plenty of things to do at the Delaware beaches. From fun on the boardwalk, to eating at locally owned restaurants, to frolicking on the beach and even enjoying a good show or two, there's never a dull moment - unless you want there to be, of course.

But there are also plenty of local festivals and events to attend and enjoy, especially during the annual “festival season.”

For the next few days, the main show in town, so to speak, is taking place a few miles up north along the old DuPont Highway, known as Del. Route 13 to the younger generation. The 96th annual Delaware State Fair kicked off on Thursday, July 23, for it's yearly 10-day run, with record crowds expected once again for the annual event.

Read more about this year's fair below, as well as a few other coastal Delaware happenings this weekend, courtesy of this week's Weekender Blog,” brought to you by the Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby's International Realty.

  • 96th Annual Delaware State Fair (July 23-August 1). For nearly a century, the Delaware State Fair has been a tradition for locals and visitors alike. Located in the town of Harrington, the fair offers fun for the whole family. From exciting rides, to wonderful food and great entertainment, the fair always has something for everyone and is a tradition worth enjoying when living in, or paying a visit to, the First State.

  • Milton Architecture Walking Tour (July 25).

Snack on scallop skewers, crab cakes and more at this enjoyable summer event. Bring the kids along to participate in games and activities while you browse through the stands of local vendors from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

  • Historic Lewes Farmers' Market (July 25). There are plenty of good farmers' markets in the area this time of year, and we're not endorsing one over the many others. But we thought we'd take a moment this week to feature the Historic Lewes Farmers' Market, held each Saturday at the Lewes Historic Society complex at the end of Second Street in downtown Lewes. The winner of many awards and consistently named one of the best farmers' markets in the region, the Historic Lewes Farmers' Market is your home for fresh vegetables, home-baked goodies and many other delicacies. Check it out! Visit www.historiclewesfarmersmarket.org for more information.

  • Movie Night on the Beach (July 27). Held every Monday night during the season, these family-friendly movies are fun for everyone. Bring your family, a blanket, and some popcorn to the beach for family movie night! Movies will start at approximately 8:30 p.m. on the beach at Dagsworthy Street in Dewey Beach and Garfield Parkway in Bethany Beach.
