Currently, Steve is focused on the strategic growth and expansion of the Water Pointe Realty Group Rental Services Division, which provides rental leasing and management services to investment owners of vacation condominiums and homes on south Hutchinson Island. In addition, this division also offers a wide variety of vacation rental opportunities to the seasonal tourist rental market and other local tenants with short-term rental needs. The Rental Services Division is located in the Water Pointe Realty Group Hutchinson Island office, directly across from the main entrance to the Indian River Plantation Marriott Resort and Marina.
Steve Osburn’s extensive industry experience spans a 43-year real estate development and brokerage career that commenced in 1975 when he joined Radnor Corporation, the real estate development subsidiary of Sun Oil Company (Sunoco) of Pennsylvania. He eventually became president of this national commercial and residential development company, and held management responsibility over a real estate portfolio totaling $1.3 billion. In 1999, Steve and his business partner Bill Dean purchased IRP Realty, a local, island-based real estate company that promoted a strong focus on sales and rentals of waterfront homes and condominiums on Hutchinson Island. In 2018, after nearly two decades of growth and successful residential brokerage operations, IRP Realty proudly joined forces with the owners of Willoughby Realty and Water Pointe Realty Group of Stuart to form the new and stronger Water Pointe Realty Group we have now become today.
Steve has been continually licensed as a Florida real estate broker since 1980. He has been an active association member of the Martin County Realtors® of the Treasure Coast, and has previously served on the board of directors and various committees. He has earned the Graduate Realtor® Institute advanced education designation, and is a member of the Florida Association of Realtors® and the National Association of Realtors®.
A permanent Florida resident since 1978, Steve and his wife Mary Lou continue to live the waterfront lifestyle they love in their home on the Loxahatchee River in Tequesta, Florida.
