Ocean Atlantic Sotheby’s International Realty welcomes new rental agent


Ocean Atlantic Sotheby’s International Realty (OASIR) this week announced the addition of Gertie Hillman, rental agent, to their team of real estate professionals.

“We are thrilled to have Gertie join our company,” stated Justin Healy, OASIR’s broker. “With her passion for excellent customer service and knowledge of the real estate rental market, she is truly a great asset to our team.”

Originally from Williamsport, Pa., Hillman graduated from nursing school and specialized in operating room and critical care services. She moved to the Delaware coast in 1988 and her lifelong interest in nutrition and health led her to ultimately found and run two businesses in the Lewes area, Gertie’s Greengrocer and Nutrition the Key To Life. She obtained her real estate license in 2011 and said she is excited to have joined the OA Sotheby’s team.

“I’ve always loved helping people, whether through my nursing career, nutritional advice, or with real estate services,” said Gertie. “I am thrilled to be working in the rental department and assisting people with their vacation, transitional or permanent homes.”

“With the market heading in a very positive direction, our concentration continues to be on building a strong and professional team of real estate experts in both sales and rentals,” said Kathleen Schell, OA marketing director. “The rental market has remained exceptionally strong in 2013, with a continued need for rental inventory. Some of our long-term rental properties are only on the market for a matter of hours before we have had multiple contracts submitted for leases.”

In addition, OA Sotheby’s offers weekly rentals, from condos to oceanfront homes, ranging from $800 to $8,500 per week throughout Coastal Delaware. There are still a few weeks available on some weekly rental properties at the beach for this summer season and early fall, they noted; however, the inventory is limited. Rental Manager, Kathleen Archino explained, “A few last-minute getaway weeks are still open, but please call soon if interested!”
