At the Oldfather Group, we work with a wide selection of valued clients on a daily basis. They come from many different backgrounds, but all have one very special thing in common - they're all either conducting, or hoping to conduct, real estate transactions here at the Delaware and Maryland beaches.

We're extremely proud of the fact that we're consistently ranked as one of the top local firms in terms of buyer represented sales, but a lot of our work is also focused on cultivating and taking excellent care of our clients who are wishing to sell their properties for one reason or another.

With 14 years of experience in the coastal Delaware, and now Maryland, marketplace, we've seen just about everything imaginable. Because of this, we can offer a

If you're like most of us, your home is one of the most valuable things that you own. So it stands to reason that taking care of it over the years is of utmost importance.

And that leads us to home improvements, which probably anyone who has ever owned a home has undertaken. Some are minor, like replacing wallpaper with a fresh coat of paint or ripping up your carpeting to expose or lay beautiful new hardware floors.

Others are more extensive, of course, and can range from upgrading your kitchen or bathroom with new fixtures to even something as major as adding a couple of new rooms to your home.

But did you know that some home improvements can significantly add value to your home, while others can be a bit of a "money pit?"

Today, we're going

For generations, people young and old have preached about the health benefits of living at the beach, breathing the salt air, laying in the sun and generally just feeling more relaxed on a regular basis.

If you’ve ever wondered whether or not this admittedly unproven theory has any merit, Ocean City Realtor John McAdams may help you make up your mind.

Down 50 pounds since his move to the beach in 2011, McAdams now weighs the same as he did as a high school senior in 1981. He also boasts higher energy levels, a much lower cholesterol rate and a brighter outlook on life.

It’s a life that could be a whole lot different in 2018, if not for the permanent move to the beach and the advent of a healthier lifestyle.

Greetings everyone, and welcome once again to our "Weekender Blog," as always brought to you by the real estate professionals at the Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby's International Realty, for two years running the top real estate firm in southern Delaware in terms of buyer represented sales.

We're going to be placing our weekly events-centered blog on hiatus for the off-season after next week, but we'll still be posting a few "special events" entries throughout the winter months, featuring things like the "Winter Wonderfest" in Lewes and both the Chocolate Festival and the Polar Bear Plunge in Rehoboth Beach.

And we also have some great things to tell you about for the next couple of weeks, before everyone begins settling in for the

Two gems of southern Delaware’s fall festival season take center stage this weekend as both the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival and Bridgeville’s Apple Scrapple Festival return for their 2017 runs.

Each festival draws thousands of visitors from throughout Delaware, as well as surrounding states, and contribute significantly to the local economy during the so-called “extended season” between Labor Day and mid-November.

There are other events on the schedule as well, most notably the CAMP Rehoboth Block Party on Baltimore Avenue, but these two are certainly the belles of the ball for the next few days here in coastal Delaware.

Southern Delaware’s fall festivals keep visitors coming to our area long after the traditional Memorial Day to Labor Day

Each week, we feature great events coming up over the next few days in the coastal region. And as we're in the middle of the 2017 fall festival season, there's surely plenty to tell you about.

This weekend's calendar is actually highlighted by a special annual festival in coastal Maryland, as Ocean City plays host once again to the four-day Sunfest event at the inlet.

This is always a great autumn event that never disappoints, so be sure to check it out if you're able. You can read much more about Sunfest below, of course.

Back across the state line in Delaware, we have one of the biggest bicycling events of the year, a beer-centric happening at the fabulous Big Chill Beach Club at Delaware Seashore State Park, a fun event in Milton and an

Well it's hard to believe, but we're only a few days away from the traditional end-of-summer Labor Day Weekend. The season sure went by quickly, as it always does, but we think you'll agree that it's been a fantastic few months here in coastal Delaware.

And while the passing of the traditional summer season can be a sad moment, marked by the always entertaining Bethany Beach Jazz Funeral next weekend, it also means the start of a couple of new seasons that we think you'll enjoy. And those are...

  • The so-called "Locals Summer," which generally lasts for all of September and into early October

  • The 2017 Southern Delaware Fall Festival Season, which will last into early November

So while the Memorial Day to Labor Day summer season

Greetings everyone and welcome once again to your coastal Delaware "Weekender Blog," brought to you every Wednesday by the real estate professionals at the Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby's International Realty.

We're in a bit of a lull right now between the big events of the summer and the always exciting southern Delaware fall festival season. That being said, we have several great choices for you to consider over the next few days here in the coastal region.

For example, you've probably heard about the solar eclipse that will be enveloping the planet early next week. Two of our fantastic state parks have scheduled programs for you to watch the big event, complete with "viewing glasses" and much more. Continue reading for more

It’s certainly stating the obvious to say that southern Delaware has more than its fair share of beautiful coastline and spectacular beaches.

From the “nation’s summer capital” of Rehoboth Beach, to the historic charm of Lewes and the “quiet resorts” of Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island, the First State excels in offering residents and visitors alike an eclectic choice of fun, relaxing and even exciting coastal resorts.

But where do you go if you want to enjoy some solitude and some “me time,” far away from the hustle and bustle of the main beach resorts in Delaware and neighboring Maryland?

Well, you have a few choices…

First, you can go to the main beaches during the “off-season,” when things are typically quieter and you'll likely have no
