Meet The Gail Nyman Group

Meet Gail Nyman

Broker Associate 

Luxury Homes Marketing Specialist 

After 40+ years in the Real Estate business, I have had experience in literally all facets of the Real Estate field. From managing real estate offices, being a college professor teaching real estate courses, training new agents in the business, rehabbing properties, experience with short sales, working with bank foreclosure properties, running a property management firm and, of course, working with buyers to find new homes and getting sellers’ homes sold. I have never had more fun in the business as I am having right now as the leader of The Gail Nyman Group!

In my spare time, (Ha, Ha) I love touring historic homes in the areas that I visit, Pilates is a passion of mine, and I love llamas and pineapples!

Property Manager with Nyman Management Services, LLC

I have been an Associate Broker and managed 100+ Agent Real Estate Offices since 1975. In 2018, I received the prestige of being the #26 Agent in Prince George’s County, MD. I work extensively with land developers, have experience in subdivision sales, have practiced handling rehab homes in the Tri-County area, and hold extensive knowledge in investment properties. I recently took over as Property Manager for Nyman Management Services, LLC. Do you have a need for a Property Manager? Give me a call!

When I’m not helping buyers find their perfect home, I’m usually invested in all things cars—buying cars, selling cars, trading cars, driving cars!! Also, if you hear me talking about a key lime pie, I’m not talking dessert—pass me a Corona with lime!





Meet Delaney Burgess

Sales Associate with The Gail Nyman Group

Maryland offers an extraordinary environment for both living and working. Delaney made the conscious decision to stay local to Calvert County after high school, relishing the unique opportunities this area has to offer. While real estate may not have been an initial passion for Delaney, fate smiled upon her and presented her with a remarkable gift precisely when she needed it the most.

Embarking on her real estate journey shortly after high school, Delaney began her career as an assistant in new construction. Through this experience, she immersed herself in the home building process, acquiring invaluable insights into the industry. After falling in love with real estate, she decided that being a Realtor was exactly what she was supposed to do in life. Delaney’s unwavering dedication to her clients extends beyond the mere act of finding their dream homes. She takes great pleasure in actively participating in local community events, championing small businesses, and supporting various charitable causes. When not in the office, you might spot her at a cozy coffee shop, taking walks with her beloved dog Franklin, exploring local boutiques, or cherishing moments with her friends and family. Although it’s worth mentioning, Delaney’s tireless work ethic means she’s always on the go, consistently striving to meet the needs of her clients.

Delaney’s exceptional track record speaks for itself, as countless families have entrusted her with their buying and selling. With her profound knowledge of the Maryland real estate market and her unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional service, it’s no wonder that she is the go-to person for hundreds of families seeking expert guidance.


Meet Jeff Burgess

Sales Associate with The Gail Nyman Group

Southern Maryland is a great place to live and work, which is why Jeff chose to call it home.  Having grown up in Prince Georges County, with a background in technology and the Real Estate Title industry, it is easy to see why becoming a realtor was an easy transition.  Being able to help families find the home where they can live, or raise their family has a reward like none other.  Helping a person, or family, sell their current house to start the next chapters of their lives has been equally satisfying.  Being on the Nyman Group of REMAX United Real Estate, where my daughter is also an agent, has been simply amazing. 

When not helping families buy or sell their house, Jeff can be found spending time with his family doing yard work and gardening, kayaking, visiting the local beaches, vacationing in Cancun or golfing and grilling with family and friends.



Meet Karli Hawxhurst

Sales Associate with The Gail Nyman Group

I was born and raised in Southern Maryland, and after spending time away in college and traveling the world as a flight attendant, I realized I wanted to plant my roots in Calvert County. I felt a strong urge to give back to the community that raised me, and that was the reason I decided to get my Real Estate license in the spring of 2021. For two years I learned the ins and outs of Real Estate as a licensed assistant with the Gail Nyman Group. I was able to work on hundreds of transactions, and I was exposed to many different scenarios that can occur. In the Spring of 2023, I took the leap to become a full-time buyer’s agent with the Gail Nyman Group.

I understand the importance of being able to communicate genuinely with my clients and finding common ground with every person I come in contact with. Most of my clients are first time homebuyers. I enjoy helping first time buyers with one of the most monumental moments in their lives, and I work tirelessly to make sure they understand every step of the process, and are never left with questions. My main goal is for each client to find their dream home! When I’m not searching for the perfect home for each individual client, I love being outdoors, going on hikes, going to the beach, being on the water, yoga, and playing with my German Shorthaired Pointer named Riley!



Meet John Christ

Sales Associate with The Gail Nyman Group

I have 30 years of experience in the real estate industry.  I am a Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser and I have experience as a realtor listing and selling foreclosure properties. I grew up in Prince George’s County MD and had a career in law enforcement for over 22 years before my beautiful wife and I relocated to Lusby, MD.    I have a great knowledge of Southern Maryland Real Estate including Calvert County, MD, Charles County, MD and Saint Mary’s County MD. 

The great thing about real estate is that I love it and when you do what you love you never go to work again.  Real Estate is a passion for me and I enjoy finding great deals for my clients.  When I am not finding great homes for my clients you can find me on the golf course or at your local car show.   



Meet Tannar Jones

 Tannar Jones is a Calvert County native and local. She loved growing up in this rural small town, where she is close to beaches and surrounded by family. She is ecstatic to be in her hometown, pursuing her passion for real estate.

She loves that her job involves sharing her love for Southern Maryland and why it is a beautiful place to call home. With her vast knowledge of the area and all the best local places, she can offer valuable insights and recommendations to her clients, whether they are looking to make an informed decision about their real estate needs, seeking out local amenities, or exploring hidden gems.

Tannar Jones is heavily involved in her community by participating each year for Christmas in April and events to raise money to End Hunger in Calvert County. When Tannar isn’t in the office working or showing homes to clients, you’ll often find her at Skipjack Crossfit working out or golfing at Chesapeake Hills with her boyfriend, dad and brother. 



Meet Julie Valltos

Client Care Specialist with The Gail Nyman Group

Growing up and starting my roots here in Southern Maryland I always knew this was my forever home. How fitting is it that I get to be involved in the behind the scenes details of our clients finding their forever home and learn the stories behind selling their home right here in the heart of it all. Having the ability to create relationships with our clients through some of the most challenging times creates a deeper meaning for me.

Being able to point my focus on ” What do we need to know and do to make the idea possible” in every transaction allows me to put my attention to detail to action. I interact with our clients on an everyday basis from the beginning of a transaction to the end, every step of the way. I work side by side with Gail to make sure everything gets done to serve our clients in the most efficient ways possible.

On my off time I enjoy traveling to new places, learning new things, decorating, meditation, & essential oils. I have a daughter who is the light of my life and has fully changed my perspective on life.  Fall is my favorite season of them all, bring on the colder weather and rustling leaves.  My birthday is two days before Christmas so you can only expect that my favorite holiday is Christmas as well! Fun fact: My brother and sister had to wait for me to come home from the hospital to open their Christmas gifts that year, that’s certainly a gift they couldn’t return!

As a second-generation Realtor, I have had the pleasure of being around real estate
most of my life. Born and raised in Southern Maryland, I have a strong knowledge of the
market and what attracts people to the area. I focus on providing home buyers and

make the real estate transaction as seamless as possible while educating and assisting
my clients. I previously worked in the commercial insurance industry in sales and
customer service with a focus in real estate.

golf or enjoying sports in any capacity.

Meet Margot Kennedy

Property Manager at Nyman Management Services LLC

I have always worked in some aspect of real estate. I have been a Property Manager and Controller in the retirement home business, a senior accountant and leasing manager for a shopping center developer, and a residential real estate agent. During these times, I also fixed old homes to rent or sell and have acquired ownership in large multifamily properties as an equity or general partner. My favorite part of all my jobs has been getting to know my clients and customers and helping them identify the right place to live or work. After twenty years as a Realtor, I decided that I wanted to focus more of my time on investments and only work with a few of my long-term real estate clients. When the opportunity came to work for Nyman Management Services as a Property Manager and help expand the business, I jumped on it! It’s something I enjoy doing and it provides me with a more predictable schedule so that I can work on my property acquisition. Plus, I mentored with Gail to learn the residential real estate business when I started, so this is like coming home.

When I am not playing in the real estate world, my favorite times are spent with my husband, kids, grandchildren, and German Shepherd Dog. They are the light of my life!
