Candice and Ray went above and beyond my expectations in selling my home. Since this was the first home I have sold, they were very patient and answered all of my questions. They have great follow-through and I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Candice provided exceptional service in finding rental properties in the Seattle Area. I was new to the area and she was able to obtain a range of properties for me to view in two days. A basic criteria was provided to her and with her result driven attitude, she delivered!
Candice was great during our process to find a new place!
She was very assertive in the places that we went to check and listened to all our ideas and suggestions.
We are now living in a place that she found for us, and we love it! I 100% recommend her!! She is smart, responsible and very sharp!
Candice was a pleasure to work with as my Real Estate Agent. She was recommended to me when I first moved to Seattle and helped me focus on the neighborhoods that best fit my needs and price range. We viewed several condos in these areas and she gave great insight on the pros and cons of each. Overall, Candice was energetic, pro-active, knowledgeable and very responsive. I would highly recommend her! -Kim D.
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.

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. Judith D. – Sold condo in Belltown and bought on Alki using Candice on both ends!
Candice is an excellent Realtor and professional who I have had the pleasure of working with several times. She is knowledgeable, caring, patient and works with her clients in a way that makes them feel understood and well represented. I highly endorse her to anybody looking for a full time, full service Realtor who knows market conditions and wants the process fun and enjoyable.
My husband and I were shopping around in the Seattle area a little over a year ago. We had called several realtors for places we were interested in checking out. Candice got back to us immediately. Her promptness alone, stole are hearts and we decided to move forward with her. Almost every day we received listings within the price range we asked for. When we were ready to schedule a viewing, she made it happen. We made an offer and the process was smooth, quick, and flawless. We were in our new place within a month! Candice was so sweet and sociable, she was willing and able to answer any of the questions we threw her way. Although, she has not been around for a long time, her attentiveness to her customers, her eagerness to help, and her strive to be the best Real Estate Professional around is magnetizing. I am so glad we went with her, it’s not always a plus to go with a more experienced Agent, I enjoyed the fresh faced, enthusiastic lady who helped us into our first home. We plan on using Candice for all of our future purchases as well as refer our friends to her. She was so generous she even had our carpets in our home professionally shampooed as a housewarming gift.! Thank you Candice, for all of your help, the kind letters, and the little gifts you give! We could not have chosen someone better!
We worked with Candice on our new house. She was always there if we had questions and she worked very hard to get everything we wanted from the seller. We enjoyed working with her and will again when the time comes to buy a new home.
As a first time home buyer it was fairly nerve racking and intimidating going through the process and trying to figure out what was best for my wife and I and how much we could afford. Candice was very informative and helpful in walking us through the transaction and successfully purchasing the home that was our #1 choice. She was professional, easy to work with and always kept our best interests in mind. It was a pleasure dealing with her and my wife and I can say we ended up with a new friend.
When I decided to buy a house I started out talking to Candice and another realtor. I wanted to make sure I had someone who understood me and was excited to look for my new home. I decided on Candice because she always got back to me no matter how big or little my question was and she was always excited to look at homes with me. I enjoyed looking at potential homes with Candice because it was like shopping with my best friend, She always gave me pro’s and con’s which help me narrow down my buying options. When I finally found the home I really wanted, Candice negotiated until the offer went through and was excepted! I would and will recommend Candice to anyone who is looking for a realtor that is dedicated to finding them the home they have been waiting for.
Candice is a very friendly and professional agent. She was very patient to listen to our requirements; and very available to answer any questions my wife and I had. She worked hard to get comparison information for us; and kept providing good house source information all the time. She did not only help us buy our house but also became our good friend. She provided a very impressive house buying experience for us. Thanks a lot, Candice!
I highly, highly recommend Candice for your real estate needs. I reached out to her for assistance in seeking a qualified renter for my investment property. From the beginning, she set realistic expectations and managed all aspects of the listing. In the time it took other agents to confirm an appointment, Candice already had my listing up and running and viewings set up! The most important thing was she got results. Within 10 days from contacting Candice, I had a qualified, long-term tenant move in and my investment property was only empty for three days. Other agents told me to expect my investment property to be empty until the start of the next month, but not Candice. She knew what it took and got results. Without hesitation, I will be using her in the future.
Candice listed our home. and sold it in a week at full listing price. She performed a detailed market analysis and provided an expert market analysis. We listed the home in September, which presented a challenge since it was past the peak season for home sales, but Candice utilized numerous marketing tools, including various web based tools for maximum visibility. The buyer’s agent represented first time buyers who were inexperienced and uncomfortable with the purchase process and the buyer’s agent struggled to keep items timely during the closing process. Candice communicated tactfully but assertively to keep the process timely. As a result, the whole process was completed per contract, and we extremely satisfied with her work. We would not hesitate to recommend her as a buyer’s or seller’s agent.
Candice always replied to inquiries very quickly. She understood the process and worked with the lender, seller, and myself to ensure that the process was as smooth as it could be given some of the difficulties that popped up. Thank you very much for all of your help!
Let me begin by saying that I am a difficult customer and I often have complex and unusual transactions. As such, I have come to expect to be underwhelmed by services that I receive and it can be rather difficult to impress me. The sale of my home was no exception to the unusual, complex and difficult transaction rule in my life. The difference is that I was not at all underwhelmed by Candice, who was not simply a real estate agent, but oversaw the whole sale process. Candice is thoughtful, knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Since this was the sale of the home I raised my family in, I was understandably anxious. She always took the time to quell my fears/anxieties and never made me feel like I was being ignorant or a bothersome worry wart. Her experience allows her to anticipate any pitfalls, lay out a realistic game plan and guide you through the steps, without encountering any unwanted surprises. Candice goes well above and beyond to make sure you are informed and that your transaction goes smoothly and ethically. She has a network of proven professionals that are also dedicated to providing good service and a smooth transaction and she is happy to share that network with you. If anything does go wrong, or you have already hired a subpar professional, then she will help you get it resolved and back on track. She is an effective advocate, who truly cares about her clients and the communities we call home. I was baffled to know that all of the aforementioned was included in her base percentage, despite the additional complexities and additional work she had to perform. She is not simply in it for the money – she loves what she does and cares about the true meaning of “home”. What an unexpected gem. I do not hesitate to recommend her and I will definitely work with her again in the future.
Candice met us for the first time at the property and had already done quite a bit a research. She had a really good idea what the property would sell for and was spot on. She kept us updated frequently and was proactive when dealing with the agents showing the property. I will absolutely call on Candice again.
Candice is awesome! Her knowledge of the Seattle area was invaluable. She uses technology to make the search process quick and easy. Although Candice leverages technology to a great extent, you do not have to be technically advanced to participate. Every thing was easy. Candice is a great communicator. She puts the customer first and really listens to your needs. She is a kind, professional, caring person who loves her job and does it well.
Candice is fantastic! She worked with me to find Condos in the Seattle area that matched my criteria, as well as taking me on a tour of each of the ones that I was interested in. Once I settled on a place that I liked, we made a competitive offer and she helped me throughout the whole process and was able to answer all my questions. Definitely 5 out of 5 stars- Candice is very dependable and highly recommended!
Candice was great from beginning to end. Whe we were ready to take the house off the market she was relentless, moved forward, found a buyer and closed the deal. Would highly recommend her to all.
Candice was amazing throughout our whole home selling experience! Of course it didn’t go as smoothly as I would have liked (as things of this nature are bound to have hiccups) but Candice navigated us thru the rough patches and made it all better with her great attention to detail, knowledge of real estate, and professionalism. If you are looking for an agent that cares about you as a person and not just a profit look no further!
We lucked into finding Candace, and how very fortunate our meeting has proven to be! Not only is she very personable, she is great at what she does. Candice is incredibly knowledgeable about real estate, home buying, homes, and Seattle itself (and on the rare occasions she doesn’t have an answer, she is quick to find one!) For a first time home buyer, this was both appreciated and very reassuring. Candice is very dedicated to her client. She is quick to return calls and texts, she is flexible in making appointments, and she is very much ‘on your side.’ Thank you so much for everything, Candice!
I could not have asked for a better first experience buying a home. Candice was fantastic to work with throughout, from my first interest in my property to negotiating to closing. Candice was attentive, consistently checking in on how the process was going leading up to and during the closing period, though not over-stepping. She empowered me to learn as I went through all the different steps and helped explain why certain things were happening and what might possibly happen as a result. As a first-time home buyer, I was clear from the start that I may not always know all the right questions to be asking and Candice took that to heart – I was confident that she had my best interests in mind. I absolutely recommend working with her, especially for a fellow first-time home owner.
Candice is so professional, so good at selling homes, and such a joy to work with! My entire experience – from deciding to sell my house to actually selling it – was only a few weeks. Candice came over and walked through the house with me, discussing options of what could be done to best present the house. I spent a couple of weeks cleaning and packing up things. She came back to the house, mop in hand, and helped me with the last bit of clean-up and then staging. She had professional photos taken and created a great one-page overview. She held an open house on Saturday and Sunday, and on Monday we sold the house! Such an easy and positive experience. Candice was hard-working, very knowledgeable, and driven to help me put my house on its best showing to find a new owner. She communicated several times a day during the process, and was always super helpful and genuinely interested in doing the best she could for me. Thank you, Candice!!
Candice is simply AMAZING! This is the 8th home I have bought and Candice is the best realtor I have used! I contacted Candice at 11pm on a Tuesday night by email as I was looking for a realtor to help in my very specific neighborhood search in West Seattle. She immediately contacted me by email and we set up an interview appointment for 11am the next morning. At 3pm she showed me a house I fell in love with and put an offer on the next day. Candice had reached out to the seller, knew there was a potential other offer coming in, and expertly orchestrated a fantastic offer that the seller accepted. After my offer was accepted Candice was tenacious in making sure every detail was covered. Candice went throughout the house noting every defect, bringing them all to the attention of the seller. She has highly qualified professionals to help at every step, including inspectors, mortgage brokers, and contractors. Most importantly, Candice is a joy to work with. She is professional, knowledgeable, fun, high-energy, and always available. Candice is a fantastic listener and truly understood what I needed throughout the process, from first contact to closing. I highly recommend Candice to you.
Candy did a fantastic job as my realtor. She knew of my financial range early on, helped me find properties that were specifically in that range, in addition to the locations I was interested in. This being my first home purchase, there was a lot of phone calls, text messages, and emails from me outside of normal business hours which she continuously responded to both in a professional, kind, and timely manner knowing how nervous I was. She walked me through the entire process multiple times so I understood clearly how we were going to proceed each step of the way. Once we found the right property and we’re getting ready to make an offer (including after the offer was made) it seemed that the sellers agent was not entirely interested in putting a lot of back and forth / time into questions regarding the property history and negotiations. Candy clearly took hold of the situation and drove it the entire time. Each step of the way she was coordinating with my lender, the seller, the seller’s agent, and myself driving the entire negotiations and sale until close. There was some difficult negotiations to work through (such as a square footage discrepancy from the listing and appraisal) and she helped me understand that process and our negotiations options. She protected me (her client) from start to finish, played great hardball, with the goal of getting me the best purchase possible. Long story short, I’m sitting here typing this in my condo right now. I love my condo, and Candy did a great job guiding me through this entire process. She clearly knows what she’s doing! It was the right purchase for me, and she was the right agent to work with. I’d highly recommend here to anyone looking for a realtor.
