Oldfather Group offers scholarships for aspiring real estate agents

July 2, 2021

The Oldfather Group of Compass RE announced a new scholarship program designed to give aspiring agents in Delaware and Maryland a jump-start on exciting new careers in the real estate industry.

Designed to tackle upfront costs that keep many interested candidates on the sidelines, the scholarship program is the brainchild of company founders Dustin and Mariya Oldfather, and it is first being announced and promoted at the Delaware beaches.

“We’ve been fortunate to have our home base in Delaware’s coastal region for more than a decade and a half, and we wanted to find a way to bring more aspiring agents into the exciting world of real estate at and near the beaches,” said Oldfather Group CEO Dustin Oldfather. “This is a great way for us to recruit new talent while also tackling the main obstacle that nearly all agents experience in their first few weeks.”

The real estate scholarship program designed by the Oldfather Group will also be expanded to target new talent in other areas of Delaware and Maryland following the initial rollout in coastal Sussex County.

The program assists prospective new agents with upfront costs like books, reference materials, real estate classes and licensing fees. It also includes some of the industry’s best guidance, mentorship and coaching programs via a relationship with the Oldfather Group, one of the coastal region’s top-selling real estate sales teams for the last several years.

“If someone really has a passion for real estate, then we definitely want to encourage that passion and have them be a part of our growing team,” said Oldfather. “We’re always looking for new talent, and we like to invest in people who we feel will be good partners with us moving forward. Real estate is an exciting business! If you feel this could be the right career path for you, then we want to hear from you today.”

The Oldfather Group offers a number of benefits for agents who join the region’s fastest-growing real estate sales team, including offering a proven system of success, training from some of the best coaches in the business, next-level marketing techniques and a lead generation program that ensures all agents have plenty of opportunities for building a successful career.
