My Reviews from Past clients

REVIEWS FROM PAST CLIENTS


What was your favorite part about working with Candice

Candice took a dream I presented to her and turned it into reality by using imagination and hard work to find a way to land the condo I wanted.

 What did Candice do to set herself apart from other Real Estate Agents?

As seems to be the case: “The condos you are interested in almost never come on the market.” Candice found a way to not only create a sale, but also negotiated a fair deal for both buyer and seller. She took the time to research the properties, found the names of owners and wrote hand-written personal letters to each owner indicating she had an interested buyer if they might be interested in selling. It worked, and I got my condo!

 What did she do to make you feel valuable as a client?

She treated my needs seriously and did not take the easy route of saying: I’ll let you know if anything turns up.” She created a sales opportunity where there appeared to be none. The mark of a great agent.

 Would you recommend Candice to others?

Yes.

 In the future, what can Candice do better to make each client have the best experience possible?

Candice needs nothing more than as much experience as she can squeeze into her early experience in the market. Candice is a quick study with a lively imagination. She has a window of opportunity as a relatively new agent without the burden of being stuck in a system. The more challenges she faces the more she will find her own imaginative ways of solving the problems that buyers and sellers throw in her path.

We just felt compelled to comment on our experience in having the good-fortune of working with Candice Oftebro.  In our opinion we found the best realtor in the greater-Seattle area. Right from the beginning Candice had a real grasp of the home we desired and worked diligently to find what suited our needs. Never did she try to over-sell us and for that we were most appreciative!  Her diligence, having the concern and honesty to direct us to the right home, having an outstanding sense of the variables that make for a wise purchase, and just her simple pleasantness made us feel we had a real advocate.  Frankly speaking, we didn’t really understand all the ins-and-outs of purchasing a home but with Candice we felt a real sense of confidence and assurance that she would deliver.  And deliver she did! WE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE SATISFIED!

Our previous home purchase was much less enjoyable.  Our agent at that time seemed to be working for the seller, certainly not us.  We could only describe that experience as cold and unconcerned.  However, with Candice, we found her to be empathetic to our needs/concerns—the epitome of real professionalism.  We never doubted we were in the best of hands when we saw how well educated she was in the field of real estate.  We would also like to say, that what put her over the top, was the genuine, unpretentious way about her.  She made us feel we had known her for years but in reality only a few short weeks had past.

Candice, in our humble opinion, is tops!  We don’t feel she needs any recommendation but for what it is worth, yes she is the hands-down, obvious choice for anyone looking for a true professional and just an all-around charming person.

 What did Candice do to set herself apart from other Real Estate Agents?

She had a fabulous attitude, and definitely made the experience about us finding what we want in a timely manner. Never once did we feel like we were just her paycheck.

Listened and did everything we asked and more!

Yes! I already have!

 What was your favorite part about working with Candice?

Candice has amazing energy and enthusiasm.  She has creative ideas and works tirelessly.  I completely trust her.

What did Candice do to set herself apart from other Real Estate Agents?

From the first meeting, Candice asked great questions and really understood the best about my house (the beauty, personality, functionality, “homeyness”) – and also the challenges that come with an older house.  She was able to share current information about the market and had clever ideas for moving forward.  She was positive and personable.

What did she do to make you feel valuable as a client?

Candice takes her job to heart.  She worked at selling my home like she was selling her own home.  During weekend open houses, she arrived looking beautiful – setting the stage with background music, scented candles and opened windows to let in the light.  I could call her anytime or any day, and she was there to help.  She would also call me with ideas and updates on a frequent basis.  I knew she was my partner in this big event.

Would you recommend Candice to others?

Definitely – yes!

In the future, what can Candice do better to make each client have the best experience possible?

No suggestions . . . my experience with Candice was exceptional.

Working with Candice, on the purchase of our condo, was a pleasure.  She approached the project with enthusiasm, great energy and good humor.  My priority, in selecting an agent, was that she be quickly available for showings.  My husband and I knew, approximately, where we wanted to locate and had limited time in which to find a place.  Candice had fresh listings in my email each morning, and within a few days we had a new home.  From start to finish she answered all questions, returned calls promptly, kept the many moving parts, of a home purchase, advancing smoothly and always kept us in the loop.

Candice is intelligent and very professional.  She was a delight to work with.

When reflecting back on our recent condo purchase with Candice as our agent, my immediate first thought is her ENERGY!

Candice was upbeat, professional and ready to start the journey that would eventually lead us to the right place.  If we were at all interested in a particular place she would quickly get to work investigating the pros and cons, special assessments, etc…We felt that our search for just the right spot was important to her. She was not just looking to make a sale, she was finding us a home.

Any phone calls or emails were responded to quickly and efficiently.  What sets Candace apart from other agents is that she has the energy of a young person coupled with the wisdom of someone with years of experience.

Since closing and moving into our condo, Candice has checked back with us to see how things are going, affirming the fact that she is interested in more than just making a sale.

I would highly recommend Candice to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the future.

Sincerely,

Randi J. M. – Queen Anne Condo buyer

Candice helped our family select and buy a home near my hospital in Renton this year.

Her experience seamlessly matched the who, what, when, and how of real estate into a tailored home-buying result for us. I would describe Candice’s approach as no-fuss professional, personable, and timely – all qualities that as a physician I appreciate. Our experience in searching for and buying our home with Candice was enjoyable and clearly defined. Once the home was purchased, she continued aftercare indicated to us that he was also in the process for the long haul, as we were. In life it is good to know an effective, personable, and trusted doctor, lawyer . . . and now, realtor. We are certainly glad our friends introduced us to Candice!
