Born and raised in Los Angeles, Candace knows the city inside and out. An award-winning producer and widely respected agent, Candace has experience and knowledge in every facet of the real estate business. She takes pride in representing everyone from first-time home buyers to seasoned investors; distressed properties to luxury estates. Candace is a knowledgeable representative for buyers and sellers looking to purchase or sell homes in any price range throughout the Westside and the San Fernando Valley. In addition to her long and successful career selling real estate, in 1998 she founded her own Real Estate Appraisal Company. She performed appraisals throughout Los Angeles, Ventura and Orange Counties and supervised real estate appraisal operations for a large bank portfolio. She maintained a cost-effective balance in the portfolio by projecting accurate value and marketing time. With this experience and knowledge she is often asked by her colleagues for her expertise in pricing properties. Candace's clients are assured to get impeccable service, built on integrity, high standards and values. Her focused attention to detail and strong negotiating skills result in her clients getting the best possible price and terms. But it's not just her experience and market knowledge that give Candace an advantage. She understands that clients are entrusting her with a major life decision, and that buying or selling a home can be an emotional experience. Every transaction has a story, and Candace understands how to navigate the narrative with warmth and tenacity. Candace not only works in L.A. real estate, she also embraces the outdoor lifestyle that Southern California has to offer. She is an avid snow skier and scuba diver and also enjoys hiking and running marathons (just for the medals!). She's dedicated to multiple causes, both local and globally, and is most passionate about wildlife, animal rescue and helping the less fortunate. Her most memorable travels have been to Borneo with the Orangutan Foundation , and to Thailand to stay at Elephant Nature Park near Chiang Mai . Her next adventure is to visit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Africa.
