Linda Bova is originally from the Baltimore area of Maryland; however, she has been a resident of the Eastern Shore since 1977. Linda earned her real estate license in August of 1998, and was presented with the “Rookie of the Year” award by O’Conner, Piper & Flynn (an NRT company now under the Coldwell Banker franchise name) for her sales that year. She then earned the Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR ® ) designation in 2000, and the prestigious Broker credentials in March of 2006.
Linda’s early successes in the real estate industry led her to open a real estate franchise, Realty Executives, in 2002. She later sold her share of that franchise back to one of her partners in 2006. After purchasing commercial space on Rehoboth’s famous Coastal Highway in 2007, Linda opened The SEA BOVA Associates, which is the second real estate office she has owned & operated. Linda strongly believes her innovative boutique-style office offers fresh changes for the better: Keeping the office on a small scale minimizes the managerial time consumed by a large or inexperienced staff, which lets The SEA BOVA Associates dedicate all of their time on client representation for each of their sellers and buyers.

Pamela M. Schaefer
Another “Jersey Girl,” Pam Schaefer, joined The SEA BOVA Associates at the end of March 2022. Pam is from Spring Lake, New Jersey, but has been a Delaware resident since 2009. During her college years at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, Pam’s summer job was as a lifeguard at the Warren hotel in Spring Lake, which was formally owned by her maternal grandparents.
Pam developed an interest in becoming a real estate professional because of her experience as an owner/investor of her own portfolio of vacation rental properties located in various states from Vermont to Florida. She completed her Delaware real estate licensure exam in May 2021, and worked with a local real estate franchise brokerage prior to transferring to The SEA BOVA Associates.
Before her real estate career, Pam was a successful antiques dealer in N.J., where she bought, sold, repaired, and restored antiques. Her flagship store was Relics from the Past in Brielle, but she also had other storefront locations. Most recently, Pam was the marketing director for the sightseeing division of Liberty Helicopters in New York City for 20 years.
