Brigit Taylor is currently the Managing Broker and Director of Sales for ResortQuest Real Estate, located in Bethany Beach, DE. Brigit has been a licensed real estate professional since 1995.
Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Brigit spent her younger years as a competitive ski racer, first attending a ski academy in Vermont, then being selected as a member of the US Ski Team, and also racing collegiately at the University of Nevada-Reno.
Retiring from competitive racing at the early age of 20, Brigit went on to complete her undergraduate studies, receiving her degree at the American University in Washington, DC. Her love of skiing did not end, however, as she then spent the next five years working at various ski resorts in North and South America, Australia, and New Zealand.
Brigit finally retired from the ski industry and turned her sights full time towards real estate, working and living in the Vail Valley in Colorado. While continuing to advance in sales and marketing, Brigit pursued and was awarded an MBA from the University of Denver, and, ultimately, was hired as the CFO/COO for the largest real estate brokerage in the Vail Valley.
It was while serving in this role that Brigit’s passion for community service began. She started a foundation for her company which donated approximately $300,000 per year to local nonprofits. [Over the past 15 years, Brigit has served on numerous 501(c)(3) boards within the communities in which she has lived. Currently, Brigit serves on the Professional Development Committee for the Sussex County Association of REALTORS®, the Board of Directors for the Coastal Association of Realtors, and the Board of Directors for Beach Lacrosse Club.]
Brigit resides in West Ocean City with her husband, Dan and two children, Max and Anders.

She possesses over 25 years of accounting and financial experience. Prior to owning her own company, Mary Ellyn held several key accounting positions for the Carl M. Freeman Companies and has also worked for several local real estate and custom homebuilding firms.
Mary Ellyn is a Lifetime member of the Roxana Volunteer Fireman’s Ladies Auxiliary and has served in various positions for the Board of Directors of that organization.

Laurie graduated from James Madison University in the winter of 1997 with a degree in Health Administration and Education. She started her career in Health Education at Frederick Memorial Hospital as a health educator. After a year of doing so, she moved on to her next career in pharmaceutical sales with Novartis Pharmaceuticals. Laurie worked in pharmaceuticals for 10 years. During those 10 years, she realized that the medical industry was not her passion, it was sales. Laurie transitioned into the real estate industry in 2001, just months before the real estate industry began its down turn. Although many may see this as a bad thing, working and strategizing through the down turn in the market challenged her to work hard and gave her the experience to be able to succeed in her current position. [In April of 2013, Laurie became the Director of Sales for Evergreen Homes. Helping other to achieve their goals and helping to shape the look of our local community is her true passion and she enjoys it every day.] NEEDS UPDATING
During Laurie’s tenure in the Quiet Resorts, she has spent the majority of her time dedicated to charity working with Salisbury Outreach Services. Each year for the last 10, she has adopted up to 11 children to provide them with the Christmas that their family could not otherwise afford. She has found that there is no more satisfying feeling than waking up on Christmas morning knowing that she was able to be Santa for those in need. While it has been a wonderful experience working with Salisbury Outreach Services, Laurie wanted to focus more of her charitable time locally in the Quiet Resorts Area. Laurie joined the QRCF board in 2014.
