Honoring Retirees

Two legendary local real estate agents are retiring this year. This is not a goodbye, as they will be part of our Bluewater  Real Estate family forever. Recognizing both Betty Brown Dunn and Eleanor Copeland for their extraordinary client service and mentorships. Owner Woody Warren presents retirement gifts.

“Betty and Eleanor greeted me with big smiles and open arms when I joined the Bluewater Real Estate office in Atlantic Beach in 2017. In my new position as a compliance officer, I needed to get it right when reviewing contracts. Betty and Eleanor were a wealth of information. Both were very kind, patient, and knowledgeable!” – Relocation Director, Kristie Elliott

Bluewater honors its top producers each year, and this year’s recipient was Syndie Earnhardt.

Marcia Jordan Award

Marcia Jordan was a fixture in our office for 33 years, from May 1988 until her sudden death in August 2021. She was our first broker in charge; she implemented policies and procedures that are the cornerstone of our company today and trained many realtors at Bluewater Real Estate and many in the MLS.  She was studious, intelligent, loyal, fair, caring, and honest. Marcia was the kind of Realtor we all strive to be; professional, diligent, determined but kind. The Marcia Jordan Award was created in her legacy to honor all that she achieved and to recognize the significant impact she had on this company and us, who were lucky to know her.  

Cathy Sheaffer is the 2023  recipient of the Marcia Jordan Award. Cathy was recruited, trained, and coached by Marcia. She shares the same qualities as Marcia; she is creative and fun. Cathy is our Broker in Charge at the Emerald Isle, NC office; she is always smiling and eager to help.  This year’s Marcia Jordan Award was presented by last year’s winner and an honoring top-producing realtor Syndie Earnhardt.
