John Wallden spent summers in Rehoboth Beach while attending the University of Delaware and earning degrees in English and Communication. He opened his first restaurant in Wilmington at the age of 26. The lure of the ocean and love of small-town charm compelled him to return to Rehoboth more than 20 years ago. He recently sold his last restaurant venture in town and joined Ocean Atlantic Sotheby’s at the perfect moment. John is so excited to work blocks from his home in the town he knows and loves so well.
