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.
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.
