She wants her clients to know that she will do everything in her power to make sure they’re taken care of.

At CBNOW we make impact not only in our communities but in our families and this is what she had to say about that. “Coldwell Banker has meant a lot to me, especially Chris Hannan. They have given me the opportunity to build and succeed by providing the support and resources I needed. Also, it’s given me the ability to be an independent contractor, and that has allowed me to care for my family in the way they needed. It has brought us closer.” She is hopeful that after you have worked with her you will feel that she was proactive, dedicated, hardworking, and open minded along the journey. What brings you joy? My wife brings me the most joy. Everything that I experience with her brings me joy. Buying our first home, caring for our pup, and just sharing life. I’m very family oriented and just having that is definitely joyous. Her hobbies include traveling, spending time with family, her pup, and trying new restaurants. Her charity involvement includes volunteering with my mother at Judeo-Christian-Outreach-Center. She is passionate about real estate development and her family.

Finally, she advocates for two different causes that are very close to her heart. The first cause is addiction. She would love to open up a rehab facility that services addicts of all kinds and provides therapy for their families as well. The other cause that is important to her is helping families that do not qualify for assistance and struggle to care for their children the way they’d like! Candice is passionate about finding ways to serve you well. She worked as a nurse for 6 years and learned how to serve her patients. Now, she is ready to serve you as a real estate professional and do it with excellence.

We wanted to share one of his client reviews since it explains Mike so perfectly.

What an adventure and Mike was there every step of the way! A very challenging sellers market brought with it more than one curve ball and Mike knew just how to handle every one. Mike leveraged his years of experience and knowledge to make sure our offer was in line with todays market and innovative enough to get it accepted. We really appreciated Mike's straight forward approach and his commitment to making sure any decisions we made were in our best interests. There was never a lack of communication. If Mike didn't answer the phone when I called I knew I could expect a text or return call very shortly. He was with us every step of the way. If I didn't understand something he took the time to explain it until I had no questions left. He always took the time to make sure we understood each and every step of the home buying process. Anyone looking for a realtor doesn’t need to look any further. Mike Loflin is your man. The personalized service, the knowledge he brings and the level of comfort you come to find after you've been working with him a short time does not compare to others. He is truly a Five Star Realtor.

What brings him joy?
He said he likes selling the lifestyle and helping people. His hobbies include, paddle boarding, playing drums, surfing, skiing, snowboarding and finally spending time with family. This favorite sports team is the Dallas Cowboys. He also advocates and gives to causes that have to do with diabetes.

Melissa Ly


Meet Melissa,

She has a story of freedom, and she’s thankful for being a citizen of this country. Her favorite quote comes from Suze Orman, “People first, then money, then things.” She has a few golden rules she and her family live by. It’s better to be safe than sorry and hope for the best but prepare for the worst. She and her family were refugees from Vietnam. They came to America for freedom, and they have experienced that for over 30 years now, and that has greatly impacted their life. The backbone of her family is the belief that no matter what you have to always be grateful. She is a Navy wife and a mother of three, now adults. Education is something they value, and her children have been accepted to very prestigious higher education universities, one being Johns Hopkins University. She is a woman of strength. Just to give an example, two days after giving birth to their second child her husband was deployed to war for 9/11 and was gone for almost seven months. As a realtor she would like to be described as passionate, a good listener, and an agent who fights for her clients to find the very best home. She leads and guides from her heart, and that has been working, for she has been a realtor for 16 years and counting. The three things she encourages her children to remember: Work hard. Be grateful. Give back in your community. CBNOW has been a second home to her, a place to grow her business and increase the possibilities for her family as her income increased. It’s also grown her time management, given her an opportunity to be a mother, and to be there for her family too. It’s a career that is flexible and has been a huge asset while her husband was active in the Navy. One thing that brings her great joy is finding a home for a first time home buyer. Her hobbies include spending time with friends and family. She also enjoys crocheting and volunteering. Her charity involvement includes helping migrant workers on the Eastern Shore by providing clothes and helping collect items for them while they are working here. She is passionate about helping people be successful, and her profession fits right into this passion. She also advocates and has helped fundraise for the America Cancer Society.
Her husband and she both have their real estate license. She speaks fluent Vietnamese, and that is an added benefit to their business.

Lastly, one of her strengths is she likes to share on Facebook showing her everyday life, taking care of her kids, and showing herself working in the field. I hope you have enjoyed learning a little bit about her story.
