— Property investor from Australia, Bought a Condo in Imperial Point, Fort Lauderdale, FL
THE BEST! Candy was absolutely incredible from the very beginning to the last! It is rare to know someone that is amazing in everything she does.
My husband and I are from Australia and were looking to buy our first investment property in the US back in June 2016. We started searching for a realtor online just the way we search for a good restaurant. We narrowed down to three realtors and wrote to each of them about our intention to visit Fort Lauderdale in Dec 2016 and what we were looking for. While the others took days to respond, Candy was the first one who replied to us within 24 hours! She immediately listened to what our likes, dislikes, needs and budget via internet voice calls, Whatapps and emails and started sending us information and listings details to provide us ideas of what to expect in acquiring properties in the US. During those 6 months before we arrival, Candy was super responsive and was always available to speak to us any time we had question despite the time difference of more than 14 hours between the US and our country.
Finally we met up with Candy in Dec16. Candy definitely went above and beyond her job. 5 STARS really isn’t enough to be given to her exceptional professional service. I’m a naturally skeptical person, especially about the real estate market let alone buying in a foreign country. She was down to earth, patient, extremely knowledgeable about Fort Lauderdale real estate, and the ins-and-outs of buying homes in the US, and was incredibly flexible and accommodating in scheduling viewings. She showed us quite a number of condos and each time she was fully well prepared and organised giving us detail information fact sheet of the each property. After each viewing, Candy impartially analysed what works better for us and giving us honest opinion, future values and potential issues of each property rather than pushing for a quick sale.
She was never pushy and never ever once we felt pressured to make an offer or to speed things up. Her attention to details demonstrates her passion for her job and her attitude to provide genuine caring services to her clients. Once we found the condo that we liked, her flawless negotiation skills helped us to buy the property at our budget. We could not be happier. She also made sure we understood each part of the negotiation, approval and closing processes and explained exactly what we were required to do. The entire process cannot be more transparent. She is the one to trust and will stand beside you and do her very best till you find your dream house.
We flew back home after we signed the purchase agreement but before the transaction was closed. Candy flawlessly acted on our behalf to deal with the seller, the home warranty company, the HOA, our lawyer and the closing company until the seller has handed over the property for the transaction to close.
Again we had no hesitation to rely on Candy to find a tenant for our property. Candy’s extraordinary efficiency blew us away once again. Candy organised the cleaning and the minor repairs of the property to ensure it is in the best shape for potential tenant inspection. And she found and secured the perfect tenant for us in less than 5 days after listing our property with the rental we asked for! In truth, we cannot think of any way in the process could have been smoother, more positive and stress free.
From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank Candy for going well above and beyond during the entire process and would recommend her without reservation to anyone looking for an exceptional dedicated realtor who genuinely works for her clients best interest.
