Grace Ryan Advisors & Their Certifications / Designations:

Sean Willey, REALTOR®, MRP – Sean plans to use his MRP certification to give back to the military members and their families that serve us. There is a large contingency of active duty members as well as veterans and retirees already in the area with Fort Meade, the Naval Academy, and Washington DC nearby. Sean is trained and certified to explain the programs that would best benefit our military service members.  He is well versed on their accelerated timelines, uncertainty with orders, and how to work with buyers coming in from out of state. He wants to help them find a place they will love while they are here and help them sell when the time comes for the next transfer. Unfortunately, Sean has discovered that many military members are unaware of all the benefits that are available to them. He is going to be able to inform them of these lifetime benefits so they will receive the best benefits possible.  To contact Sean, call 410.209.9594 or email him at


Nick Sage, REALTOR®, ABR, SRS. With certifications for helping both Buyers and Sellers, Nick is able to help his clients through any real estate transaction.

Meggie Carpenter, ABR, AHWD – Holding herself to a higher standard is a quality that is important to Meggie, which is why she got her certifications. AHWD helps to educate on managing cultural background differences, and making sure she knows how to adjust to best represent her clients. The ABR certification requires additional coursework to identify how to best represent buyers as well. In Meggie’s personal brand, value and proposition, she holds herself to a higher educational standard, and the ABR certification requires you to upkeep that certification. ABR also opens you up to other ABR certified advisors around the country. The certification helps when she is helping people relocate in this area because she is able to immediately find someone who shares similar values and higher standards. The AHWD and ABR combined are focused on buyers, however the AHWD does in fact work for sellers.  To contact Meggie, call 410.303.9172 or email her at
