Bought a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $350K in Hanover, MD.
I worked with Candy when I bought, and then years later, when I sold my home. She is the BEST! Candy has a great deal of knowledge about the local market, and was very patient as I ran her all over the county to find my dream home. When we found the one I wanted, Candy was excellent at negotiating the deal, getting through all the paperwork, and representing me at settlement. If you need to buy or sell a home, Candy is the one to call on.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Ellicott City, MD.
My husband and I enjoyed working with Candy as we searched for our beach home. She is professional, dependable and experienced. We found the perfect house and had fun doing it with Candy. She made the entire experience painless and an absolute pleasure! I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.
Sold a Single Family home in 2005 in Glen Burnie, MD.
Professional. Personable. Knowledgeable. Candy actually listens and cares about the needs of her clients. I have purchased two homes and sold one through Candy. The process was seamless and worry-free. Not calling Candy for your real estate needs would be a mistake.
Bought a Mobile / Manufactured home in 2014 in Lewes, DE.
Candy Williams is the best real-estate professional we have ever used. We looked at so many homes over the course of more than a year. She understood our desire to find the perfect summer place, the size we needed, in the location we wanted and within our budget. Candy was extremely patient and helpful and never sounded discouraged when a home turned out to be a poor fit for us. She simply said, You will know it when you find it. Of course, she was right.
We loved the fact that she offered her opinions only when asked, so that we never felt she was trying to sell us on a home. She did a lot of research to get answers to questions we had about several properties and quickly responded to every communication we sent her. When it came time to make an offer and negotiate a deal, Candy was at the top of her game. She went to bat for us with the seller’s agent when a difficult situation arose just before closing and quickly & calmly resolved it to our satisfaction. We were very happy she was working for us! So happy, in fact, that we have decided now to list another property we have with her, even thought it is out of her normal area.
We absolutely love our second home and would definitely recommend Candy to anyone in the market to buy or sell a property.

Thanks Tom, you and Marita were delightful to work with on this transaction. I am glad that you love your new beach place!
Bought a home in 2013 in Indian Beach, Dewey Beach, DE 19971.
My spouse and I bought and sold a home in Annapolis, MD and we bought a lot and a home in DE. In all of these experiences, Candy was professional. She is clear and concise in all communications. She was very familiar with the local market in both areas. Her quiet manner was appreciated. She was available whenever we wanted to see a property. As a result we had very positive real estate experiences and we would highly recommend Candy to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Sold a home in 2012 in Indian Beach, Dewey Beach, DE 19971.
My partner and I had very little prior experience with real estate transactions and when it was time to sell our condo, we needed a lot of "hand-holding" along the way. Candy was wonderful to work with! She was very patient and always supportive, calmly guiding us through a process that would otherwise have been completely overwhelming. She demonstrated knowledge and expertise in helping us to list our condo at the "right price", efficiently handled all of the marketing involved with the sale, skillfully executed the contract, and meticulously facilitated our settlement. We couldn't have asked for a better outcome or a stronger advocate.
During the process of purchasing our next property in Rehoboth, she remained steadfast and committed to helping us find the "perfect" place. We searched high and low, often requesting to see properties that would amount to being a "wild goose chase", but she was always willing to go the extra mile (literally!) for us. We appreciated Candy's positive attitude and good-natured approach to helping us find our "dream home". If we drove her crazy with requests for viewings which were all over the map (again, literally!) or with our constant queries, she never let on. Instead, she was graciously accommodating and worked very hard our behalf.
Under Candy's tutelage, we purchased a wonderful lot in an ideal location and she even connected us with a builder that is absolutely perfect for us. I can not recommend her highly enough!
