The Power Of Railey Realty. Number 1 at Deep Creek Lake
Since 1974, Railey Realty has been a locally recognized name in Deep Creek Lake vacation homes and residential real estate. Over the last ten years, we have expanded our expertise to include all of Garrett County, Maryland and neighboring counties in West Virginia and Pennsylvania. I am very proud to state that, even without franchise affiliations, Railey Realty has listed and sold more properties than any other area real estate company. Our team of agents with over 350 combined years of experience, is the most experienced and productive in the market place. Through their devoted efforts and inside knowledge of the area, Railey Realty continues to be the area's leader for sales and listings in the Deep Creek Lake and surrounding area.
The company's reputation at Deep Creek Lake is unsurpassed with creative, innovative thinking combined with their honesty, integrity, and professionalism. Instead of competing with other area brokerages, they cooperate with them in order to get results for you.
Let me help you explore Deep Creek Lake!
You don't have to live all your life in Garrett County to understand and appreciate its beauty and uniqness.
I have had the privilege of living in San Diego California, Mission Beach California, Winter Park Florida, Old Town Alexandria Virginia and Lake Como Italy. I have traveled and spent time in many states and countries including Germany, Switzerland and England. I have visited Yosemite National Park, The Sequoias, taken buggy rides in Sedona, gambled some money in Las Vegas, experienced the Grand Canyon, skied Lake Tahoe and Mammoth and surfed the waves in La Jolla and Mission Beach.
Now I have the privilege of living in Deep Creek Lake Maryland. I have been real estate agent for 13 years. I worked with ERA Van Metre for 3 years and Long and Foster for almost 10 years. Yes, I come with lots of awards and I am proud of them but at the end of the day it is all about good service and satisfied customers.
I am so excited about my move to Railey Realty. I am confident that joining Railey Realty along with my new marketing plan, web site and concierge service that I am going to see my real estate business go to another level.
If you are thinking about buying or selling I would love to talk with you. I love talking about Deep Creek Lake and all its opportunities. If you are thinking about coming to Deep Creek Lake for a visit and would like to get recommendations for places to stay or explore give me a call or send me an email. Even if you are not thinking about buying or selling you are still welcomed to call me for lodging and restuarant questions and recommendations or find out about some of our new activities such as our Zip Line, Segway Tours and Mountain Coaster. I am more than happy to help you explore Deep Creek Lake!
Do you have any good testimonials that clients have provided you
I have known Carol Wills for almost 10 years. I can say without a doubt, Carol is one of the hardest working Real Estate agents I have ever known. Carol's admirable work ethic shows that she not only has a love of real estate but also of technology. Carol has always been on the leading edge when it comes to her knowledge and use of the newest forms of communication and marketing. Before our Long & Foster office in Old Town Alexandria lost Carol to the Deep Creek Lake area, Carol taught a number of classes to her fellow agents. It was a time when our company had provided agents with the ability to personalize web pages. Most of us had little or no idea how to even begin much less accomplish a professional looking page that would draw customers in. Carol was happy to share her knowledge and ideas with anyone who wanted. She also volunteered to advise agents on other aspects of internet-based marketing. Carol has continued her involvement in the latest technology. She is a diligent person who loves to take on new challenges. Bonnie N.

I am happy to hear that you have additional opportunities in the marketing side of the real estate business. As I have mentioned many times, it was a pleasure working with you and sharing ideas about this particular market. What was very exciting was the formation of http://www.deepcreeklake360.com/. You took control of that project, when I was preoccupied with the marina operation, and put together a wonderful marketing tool that far exceeds any local or regional real estate web site.
From a business standpoint, you have spearheaded internet based marketing for DCL Properties that gives the owners of those three projects measurable information to evaluate their housing projects on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. For this, your commission should be in the 10% range to fully compensate your efforts.
Thank you again for your professionalism.

Hi Tracey, It was nice meeting you at my recent closing. The formation of The Deep Creek Lake Team will surely be a positive addition to Long & Fosters marketing efforts. I certainly appreciated Carol Wills timely informational calls & up dates which set my mind at ease. I realize that the vacation home market today is not exactly "robust" but Carol and Sam were very diligent in their marketing efforts and secured a buyer in record time. In the future if I decide to purchase another vacation home in the Deep Creek area I will certainly contact Carol.
Regards, Park Casteel
We tortured Sam and Carol for 6 months trying to find the house that met our very specific requirements. Sam and Carol consistently provided new listings and spent several hours on multiple occasions looking at properties with our family; some special moments that you would not normally experience with a typical agent. Their knowledge of the area, DNR regulations, Garrett County processes and local resources were invaluable in helping us to make decisions. As we had hoped, our experience concluded with the purchase of our new home, but just as exciting is the relationship that was created with Sam and Carol."

I purchased a house in the Silver RIdge community in March 2007 and had the most pleasant experience that I have ever had with a realtor. I used Sam Housley and he was great. He wasn't pushy, he knew the area very well and the house details. He was great leading up to the settlement, able to answer all of my questions in a timely matter and fabulous follow up and even after settlement. He followed up with me numerous times and took care of outstanding walk thru issues until they were completed. I would recommend Sam to anyone who needs a very credible and knowledgeable realtor. It was overall the best service I have ever received from a realtor!.. Jennifer Gruber
My wife and I have had the good fortune to have Sam and Carol represent us in both purchasing and selling properties in the Deep Creek Area. Their knowledge of the local market conditions, creativity in marketing a property and customer service are unparalleled. With Sam and Carol representing us my wife and are secure in the knowledge that we have on our side the premiere real estate team in Deep Creek. Rich and Brooke Nagle
