Ocean Pines, MD
You can’t talk about coastal communities in Maryland without mentioning Ocean Pines. One of the largest communities in the area, Ocean Pines has so much to offer, with a wide range of homes including condos, townhomes, and single-family homes, as well as homes for the first-time homebuyer up to the luxury waterfront homes. The community offers many amenities, to include a Beach Club in Ocean City, MD, numerous indoor and outdoor pools, a Yacht Club, marinas, a golf course, sports courts, tot lots, nature trails, and a farmers market in season. Ocean Pines is unique in the way that it structures it’s community fees. All homeowners have a flat HOA fee that covers the general community upkeep, trash, road maintenance, leaf removal, snow removal, and more, and condo owners may also have an additional condo fee for the maintenance of their condo building and insurances. For use of the amenities, Ocean Pines offers an “a-la-carte” payment option, where homeowners can pick and choose which amenities they would like to enjoy, and leave those that they won’t use. For instance, you can pay to join the Aquatics Membership and enjoy all of the community pools, but not partake in the Golf Membership. This helps to keep the fees economical for it’s residents while giving them everything they could hope for in an amenity package. Whether you’re looking to buy a luxury bay-front retreat, retire into a maintenance-free community, purchase you’re first home, or invest in a fantastic short term or long term rental property, Ocean Pines has something for you.

We worked with Rhonda’s daughter Bethany to find a home at the beach. We actually made initial contact with Rhonda and her team through Zillow. Bethany was awesome and took the time to understand what we were looking for in a home. She actually ruled out some we suggested we look at because she learned based on her experience with us that there was some aspect of a prospective home that wouldn’t fit our wish list. She also suggested several that we missed in doing our searches. Once we decided t…
Rhonda and Bethany were a delight to work with. They steered us in the right direction and found the perfect condo at the right price for us. They also took care of all of the closing and inspection details as we were not local. We would highly recommend them for your purchase.
Rhonda was professional and friendly throughout the entire process. We would definitely recommend her service to anyone in need of a knowledgeable real estate agent. We really appreciated her reassurance and positive outlook during the process.
Great! They’re there when you need them, and take their time showing you houses so you get what you want. Great, what more can I say! You can’t get a better Realtor. They help with everything from details with closing and any help with the lawyer, and everything else!
Bethany was a true professional and worked very hard for us to receive the best price, best lot, and was a great negotiator for us. She put the customer first. I highly recommend Bethany.
Very knowledgeable of the area and did everything in her power to help my wife and me close on the house that we wanted in Forest Landing. My wife and I had a price in mind to pay for the house we were interested in and would not budge from it. Rhonda worked hard on this contact to get the house for the price we were willing to pay by digging deep for all the nearby comparables is to compare it to.
I could not ask for better service and attention. They made us feel like friends or family, not just a customer.
Bethany Frick made sure that my husband and I found the perfect home for us when we moved to Delaware from Virginia. She and Rhonda are very professional and a lot of fun to work with. Great experience.
Professional Team! Rhonda and Bethany both did a great job! We were kept informed all along the way. Documents were easy to sign and everything went smoothly. Very responsive to email and inquiries. We bought this condo 9 years ago with Rhonda’s help and came back to her when we decided to sell it because she’s awesome!
Unbelievable professionalism, compassion, knowledge, and persistence. I cannot speak more highly about Rhonda and will no doubt use her for any real estate transactions I have in the future.
