ALEXANDRIA, VA, Aug. 3, 2023 — CENTURY 21 New Millennium, a leading residential real estate brokerage in the Mid-Atlantic region, announced today that the company has partnered with Q. Williams Real Estate Associates, a Bowie-based brokerage with more than 30 years of service to Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. home buyers and sellers.
Through this partnership, the dedicated team of Q. Williams Real Estate Associates sales professionals will align with CENTURY 21 New Millennium’s growing Bowie (Md.) office, located at 16900 Science Drive. Their wealth of knowledge, industry insights and client-centric approach align perfectly with CENTURY 21 New Millennium’s mission to deliver extraordinary real estate experience to clients across Prince George’s County and the greater Washington region.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to add such a high-quality company as Q. Williams. Karen’s and her father’s reputation throughout the industry and the community says it all,” said Todd Hetherington, founder, CEO, and co-owner of CENTURY 21 New Millennium.
Forsythe will remain with CENTURY 21 New Millennium in a supervisory role at the company’s Bowie office. Her extensive experience and leadership skills will be instrumental in fostering a seamless transition and integrating the strengths of both brokerages.
“When your company carries your family name, integrity and quality are paramount,” said Forsythe. “In my search for a new brokerage, my goal was to be part of a company that also shares our goals and provides a strong foundation as well. CENTURY 21 New Millennium is that brokerage.”
A longtime member of the real estate industry, Quay Williams began his career like many agents, working for a local broker after retirement from the government and U.S. Army Reserves. During the 1980s, he worked his way through the ranks of career real estate professionals to achieve legendary status among his peers. Along with his unprecedented sales achievements, which include induction into the Prince George’s County Association of REALTORS® (PGCAR) Hall of Fame, he was known for his integrity and the quality of his work.
In 1991, Quay and his wife Peggy decided to open their own company and an affiliation with a national franchise began. Through his own efforts along with family and a growing group of quality agents, Quay built his company into one of the premier real estate companies in the region.
In December 2004, Quay passed away and the torch of leadership was passed to the next generation. Quay’s daughter, Karen Forsythe, assumed the helm of the company after working with him as a father-daughter team for many years. Continuing the themes of integrity and quality that Quay valued so highly, Karen has led the company, along with an outstanding management team, for nearly 20 years—the last 13 of which as an independent broker under the name Q. Williams Real Estate Associates in honor of the company’s founder.
Through this partnership, CENTURY 21 New Millennium bolsters its position as the leading CENTURY 21 franchise in the Baltimore-Washington metro area and one of the largest and most productive real estate brokerages in the region, with more than 1,100 licensed sales professionals generating more than $3 billion in total annual sales volume.
