The Foodie Realtor

Small Size 1The Foodie Realtor of Bham

Foodies of Birmingham was founded by Mandy (McDaniel) Williams, a Birmingham-native. She enjoys a large spectrum of cuisines, from multi-course meals at fine dining establishments to finding local gems hidden inside of gas stations and food trucks. She started Foodies of Birmingham after seeing a need in Birmingham for a more comprehensive food guide that offers an in-depth look at some of the cuisine. Amongst her favorite restaurants and bars in Birmingham are: Pho Que Huong (a Vietnamese restaurant), Paper Doll Bar, Los Valedores (a taco truck), Red Sea Ethiopian, Freddy’s Wine Bar, The Atomic Lounge, Klinger’s European Bakery & Cafe, Ocean, and The Rougaroux.

Mandy is an alumnus of Birmingham-Southern College, where she studied classical music performance, and UAB Graduate School, where she studied communication management. She is an active member of the Opera Birmingham chorus, where she most recently performed in Puccini’s Tosca in March of 2019. She owns and operates McDaniel PR, a full-service public relations and marketing firm that specializes in small businesses marketing. In addition to PR, Mandy is also a real estate agent at LAH Real Estate in Homewood, AL, where she specializes in home sales.

Mandy and her husband, Johnathan, reside in Homewood with their two children: Isabella, a Homewood High School student and Color Guard team member, and Liam, an energetic and athletic 10-year-old. When she’s not stuffing her face with delicious foods, Mandy enjoys attending Homewood High School football games and outdoor adventures with her family and Scottish terriers.
