  -03/04/2018 - April Jones , Client

  -01/30/2018 - vr lasse , Client

"Candace was very helpful on our journey toward home ownership in Indiana. She knows the area well and was very patient with us as we asked questions about the area. She helped us as we purchased our dream home and made the process very easy. "

  -01/25/2018 timbrown4561 , Client

"I was looking for a home with more space but couldn't decide between a town house or a condo in a high rise building. I contacted Candace, and she came to my home and sat down to gain a thorough understanding of my needs (and wants) and also explained what services she could provide. Candace was very patient, showing me a variety of town homes and high rise condo units that were within my budget. She helped guide me, based on her observations of me during viewings and our conversations afterward. When I decided that I wanted to live on an upper floor with a view in a high rise, Candace took me to several properties that I found appealing. When I found the one for me, Candace was quick in helping me negotiate and close the deal with a price that both I and the sellers were comfortable with."

  -nainsworth44 , Client

"Candace was super helpful and attentive to my needs with buying and then years later selling my property.

I would happily work with her again"

  -jmcmanamee , Client

"Candace was wonderful to work with. She showed us exactly what we were looking for. I couldn't have asked for a better agent. She was punctual, professional, and genuinely cared about finding the right property for us. I highly recommend Candace Taylor. "

I would refer her to anyone and in the future I plan to have her as my realtor again. I've heard stories of how stressful buying a home could be, but with Candace Taylor, everything went easy and perfect, Thanks again Candace, Excellent work!"

  -township1987 , Client

"Candace was fantastic. She quickly understood exactly what we were looking for and was willing to spend HOURS looking at about 15 houses in one day since we were not living in the area at the time. She helped us navigate a very contentious seller relationship and made us feel totally supported. HIGHLY recommend her services. "

  -zuser20141001083958018 , Client

"Working with Candace was a true pleasure, and her service was outstanding. She worked extremely hard to help us find the right home, not just sell us any home. She listened and paid attention to us, then worked hard to identify properties that aligned with our needs. Her responsiveness was impeccable. When it came to the process of making an offer and negotiations, her skills and guidance were invaluable to the process. She's the best!"

  -badgerporter , Client

"Candace helped make our relocation from Minnesota go smoothly. We only had one weekend trip and she was able to help us see all our options so we were super comfortable making an offer on the house we loved. "

  -emaestrayer , Client

"Candace made the whole selling and buying process from start to finish as painless as possible. I would definitely recommend using her to all my family and friends. She responded very quickly to all my questions and is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate process in northwest Indiana. I was also very impressed with her use of real estate technology like Dot Loop to review and sign documents and Showing Time to schedule showings of my previous residence. This helped save a significant amount of time and allowed me to handle many requests remotely. I would definitely use her again for any future real estate endeavors"

  -zuser20140601150110208 , Client

"Candace was essential in our home buying experience on many levels. I was purchasing a home in NW Indiana while living in South Florida. She was available for jam packed days of showings on the few days I could physically be in the area. She was very knowledgeable of the areas in which we were interested and the information she provided us about schools, neighborhoods, etc... was very helpful in our decision making. She was comfortable to worth with also. As first time home buyers, Candace was also very helpful in guiding us through the process and helping to coordinate with the various parties involved. Overall I feel like what could have been a very stressful experience was simplified and made easier. "

  -steph557 , Client

"I have nothing but good things to say about Candace. She helped me through every step of buying my first home, answered all of my questions in a clear professional manner, and was quick to respond to my emails and concerns. She was always organized and had showings lined up in a timely manner. "

  -KyleYoung6 , Client

"Candace is a lovely person and a pleasure to do business with. She helped me buy my first home, which I closed on last week. When I first started looking into buying a home I initially talked to another broker who seemed more interested in showing me properties he was stuck with. I didn't feel like he was really listening to what I was looking for in a house. Talking to Candace was the exact opposite of that experience. She took her time, listened to what I had to say, and made constructive suggestions. She walked me through the entire process, carefully, step-by-step, so I never felt overwhelmed or unsure. Candace is very responsive to texts and email, and I could reach her at any time with a question. She even presented me with a bottle of champagne at closing, which I shared with friends later that evening. It feels good to have a champagne-worthy event in life! I will recommend Candace Taylor to anyone looking for a home."

  -marybellefleur , Client

"Candace was referred to me through USAA. She was helpful in walking me through every step of the buying and selling process. My closing on the property I bought was delayed a few hours because of my lender. Candace was able to get a legal "ok" from the owner to allow her and the movers into the property. She was there with the movers while I rushed to the closing. She was amazing! My 14 and 11 year old boys give her 6 stars, calling her "off the charts.""

  -jadams267 , Client

" Highly likely to recommend Candace is absolutely incredible! Anytime I requested to look at a place, it took less than five minutes for her to reply with a time. She is professional, kind, caring, and definitely only wants the best for her clients. During the entire process from offering to closing, she was there, up front and honest! Candace gave me thebest experience possible as a new homeowner and I have already referred everyone I know to her. I'm happy with the home she found for me, but when I'm ready to buy again, I wouldn't go to anyone but Candace. Thank you so much! "

  -zuser20160624102245747 , Client

"Candace is what an ideal realtor should be-- professional, ethical, always timely in her communications, and pleasant! She guided us in selling the house in a timely fashion and always answered any questions we had in a thorough and patient manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Candace as realtor for a buyer or seller...in fact, when we are in a position to purchase a house in a year or two, we plan to contact Candace. "

  -edwedeking , Client

"My girlfriend and I decided to make the move from Illinois to Indiana and had the pleasure of working with Candace. We initially looked at a multi-acre property for numerous reasons and began negotiations. Candace walked us through the contract page by page and explained everything thoroughly. Long story short, the seller countered and I took that opportunity to exit the transaction and look at new construction. Candace was very responsive and was able to exit that transaction very quickly for us. She then showed us some new construction options. We loved one of the models that she brought us to and decided to move forward. She kept in contact, as new construction is a slightly different process, and assisted us along the way. Candace is prompt, responsive, friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I would definitely recommend Candace."

  - spenachi , Client

"Candace was always professional. Her knowledge of the area was more than adequate. She was available to fit my schedule, even on short notice. Buying this house was the best realty experience I have had. "

  -nick terry88 , Client

"We were so fortunate to have been referred to Candace as our realtor when when we were looking for a new house in Chicago. As our Realtor, she helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. She was so patient with us as we looked at homes over several months and she cautioned us about making unreasonable offers when we fell too quickly for overpriced homes. She was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Candace was that she was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs than she was on closing a deal. We would recommend her to anyone as I already have to friends. Thank you Candace!!"
