During my 34+ years with RE/MAX, my goal for all my clients has always been that they walk away from the settlement table thinking, "what a great job Dan did." As a buyer, they will find a great house at a fair price, which will provide them with years of enjoyment.

As a seller, they will receive the best possible price in the shortest amount of time, allowing for the change in their life that you have been eagerly awaiting. In both cases, everyone gets what they anticipate. A boring, uneventful settlement is what everyone wants. It means that there are not any unresolved issues to be addressed in the eleventh hour. A calm and pleasant settlement is always possible if the little details are thoroughly dealt with as they arise.

All the "t's" get crossed and all the "i's" get dotted. Nothing is left for interpretation. everyone knows what to expect and when to expect it. I want my buyers to owe a bit less than anticipated, and my sellers, to receive a bit more than expected. When my clients are in social settings where someone mentions "real estate", I want them to join the conversation and insist that the person gives me a call. In their minds, they would never consider using anyone other than Dan Thiewes.

Taken individually or as a whole, the testimonials on my site will give you a great feel for the type of care and attention that you will receive if you elect to use my services.

If my past clients are describing the type of realtor that you would like to have on your side of the table during the buying or selling process, let's talk.

The thought of buying perhaps the largest item in your life, or selling the house that you have called home for years, can be overwhelming. Make sure that you have someone at your side, someone who is watching out for your best interests every step of the way.

Talk with you soon!

Life is Better at the Beach’ is the mantra of Byron Hudtloff, an award-winning, licensed Realtor for more than 20 years. As a Realtor with RE/MAX Coastal in Bethany Beach, he truly enjoys showing clients the good life at the beach and proudly serves clients looking to buy or sell in the beach resort towns in Sussex County, Delaware and Worcester County, Maryland. Originally from Washington, DC, Byron graduated cum laude from the University of Richmond in Virginia majoring in marketing, finance and Spanish. His family first put down roots in Bethany Beach in 1969, long before the Delmarva region grew in popularity to what it is today. He is proud to have continued that tradition to this day as his family and two kids love being at the beach!

Byron’s goal from the day he began working in real estate was to ‘redefine the real estate process’ by offering unparalleled real estate guidance, representation, expertise and service. His accolades over the years prove his commitment to his clients. Byron has twice been featured on the HGTV show ‘Get it Sold’ helping clients sell their homes when they previously were unable to. He has been named to the list of best real estate agents in two local publications and is in the RE/MAX Hall of Fame. For his career achievements, he received the RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Award.

Byron is a member of the Coastal Association of Realtors and holds numerous designations. He is an Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR), a certified Residential Finance Specialist (CFS), a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS) and an internet-savvy Realtor (e-PRO).

Rather than toot his own horn, Byron would rather focus on exceeding the needs of his buyers and sellers. He has a proven track record of helping hundreds of clients successfully sell their home using an effective, aggressive marketing plan. Although things are ‘slower’ as the beach, he prides himself on offering a high-level marketing plan including professional photos, drone photos, dusk photos, property website, floorplans, a floorplan tour, professional video and new 3D tour technology. All of these techniques ensure that his client’s homes sell quickly and for the greatest amount possible. When helping buyers look for a vacation rental property or a permanent spot to call home, Byron offers the highest level of representation, negotiation and service to ensure a smooth transaction.

When he’s not busy helping buyers and sellers, Byron is active in the community. He loves giving back through volunteering with Habitat for Humanity. Byron is part of the Miracle Home Program where he donates a percentage of every commission to Children’s Miracle Network, a RE/MAX partner. He’s an active sports enthusiast and can be spotted swimming in the ocean or biking and running along Coastal Highway. For many years he has participated in area events including Justin’s 5K, Firecracker 5K and the First Responders Triathlon. He even biked over 100 miles from Washington, DC to Dewey Beach, DE helping to raise money for autism awareness.
