Water Pointe Realty Group Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Water Pointe Realty Group’s story began in the summer of 2002 when two friends came together with similar goals and philosophies.

Dave Derrenbacker and Mark Eble, who each owned independent real estate brokerages at the time, regularly talked about the dreams they had for their respective companies and how they wanted to grow. They both wanted to train and retain the best associates available, to work as a team with other service providers, and to offer the outstanding service that their clientele desired. Dave and Mark had hopes to lead a firm they were proud of and that associates would be proud to be affiliated with – so why not do it together?

What started as a casual conversation quickly turned into regular meetings at Harry & the Natives in Hobe Sound. With a desire to create a better company, and frustrated by a lack of professionalism within the industry, the two brokers decided to team up and bring the assets of their individual firms together to create a new boutique real estate firm. On January 1, 2003, they officially merged to create Water Pointe Realty Group.

“I am extremely proud of what we have built together,” said Mark Eble. “When I think about how I’ve spent half of my 40-year real estate career developing one of the area’s best independent real estate companies, the things that stand out to me are the friendships that have been created within this fantastic group of like-minded people.”

The company has grown tremendously through the years. In 2018, it welcomed two additional brokerages under the Water Pointe Realty Group umbrella, making its stance in the community even more profound. The leadership team now consists of seven brokers with a combined industry experience of nearly 250 years and the firm currently has four locations across Martin and Palm Beach counties, more than 80 full-time associates, and an exceptional team of support staff. Water Pointe boasts several recipients of the prestigious Realtor® of the Year title as well as awards for community service.

“I sincerely take pride in the fact that we have established the foundation and work ethic to truly do things the right way,” said Dave Derrenbacker. “We feel really fortunate to have accomplished all of this while also firmly establishing the company as a leader in the real estate industry. I never could have imagined when we started this venture that I would have the opportunity to work with and become friends with some of the best people I know.”

On February 23, 2023, Water Pointe Realty Group landed right back at Harry & the Natives,  gathering its associates & staff to celebrate the 20th Anniversary and all the firm has accomplished.
