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.

Nice to work with, very helpful.
Rhonda and Bethany are excellent to work with! They work hard, they have your best interest and they will go above and beyond to help sell your home or purchase your home! They have helped us buy a home twice and sell one of our homes and each time it has been smooth sailing with their knowledge. One thing that makes it less stressful is that they ENJOY what they do and they HAVE FUN doing it! They take it seriously but at the same time, they have confidence that they will get the job done which…
From the moment we met Rhonda and Bethany I knew that I wanted them to be our realtors for selling our house. The marketing they prepared for our house was excellent. They were professional from beginning to end while at the same time being very approachable and just friendly people with whom to work. Any text, emails, or phone calls were responded to within minutes. It took longer than we wanted to sell our house but that had nothing to do with them as realtors but with our unrealistic view of …
Rhonda and her daughter, Bethany, are both very personable and responsive to their clients. Their knowledge of the real estate business, especially Rhonda’s, is very impressive. They are also very timely and have the latest up-to-date software that aids in successfully completing the settlement details. My husband and I felt that they worked on our behalf, not the prospective buyers’. Some of the agents from other agencies did not demonstrate this loyalty to their clients. I would not hesitate t…
Rhonda Frick is a capable, knowledgeable, and personable agent. She took the initiative in addressing issues during the selling and closing processes.
Rarely have I seen a person with the dedication and patience that Rhonda exhibits! We worked with her for close to a year as we tried to complete a sale in New Jersey and move to Delaware. No matter what price range you are looking for, do yourself a favor and call her!
Before my move to Delaware, I worked for Long & Foster realtors. So, it was a natural choice to find someone from L & F here to represent my husband and I. I can’t believe our luck in finding Bethany Frick. Thank goodness she answered the phone that day. We have so enjoyed getting to know her! I also had the privilege to meet Rhonda. Both are knowledgeable professionals and they know the territory too! If you are thinking of moving to Delmarva, this is your team of choice. We were able to find o…
My husband and I were fortunate to work with Bethany Frick for the purchase of our forever home. As we lived out of state, communication was extremely important and we were not disappointed. Bethany kept us calmed, looked out for our best interests, and communicated with us often and thoroughly, answering all of our questions promptly, honestly, and patiently. In the near future, other family members will be looking to move closer to us and we hope Bethany will work with us again. I highly recom…
After my father’s death, Rhonda was incredibly helpful in preparing his house for sale, and then negotiating the sale itself. The sale occurred within a few months of listing the property; this was so helpful to us given the complications of settling an estate.
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.
