During the recent sale of my condo I realized that not all realtors are created equal. After first listing, followed by a few months of no results, minimal viewings, and a poor relationship with my realtor, a friend recommended I call Candice Charron.
When my listing expired with the other realtor I re-listed with Candice and my experience was literally a night and day improvement. I have to say I was impressed with Candice in all facets. I found her to be professional, knowledgeable, well prepared, honest, hard-working, very motivated, and detail oriented.
For most people selling your home is a personal thing. Candice has a great personality and attitude which made the whole experience fun for me. Without hesitation I wholeheartedly recommend Candice Charron to anyone looking for a great realtor. Most important of all she gets results!
When deciding to sell our home we asked our daughter for the name of the realtor that had previously sold her home. We knew our daughter was very happy with the service she received both in selling her home and finding her a new one. She recommended Candice Charron.
Candice helped us to find a new home out in Abbotsford. She took the lead in searching for homes in our price range and drove us there to view several properties. When making an offer to purchase a town-home, which was under construction in a new development, she helped us gain several amenities which were not included in the list price.
Later on when it was time to consider selling our downtown condo we met with Candice in our home so she could view it, do her research and come back with some recommendations. Her advice proved to be beneficial and correct.
- She helped us make a plan to display our home in the best way possible
- The listing price was based on solid research and advice
- Her services included
o staging (we could not believe how nice our home looked)
o a professional photo shoot which displayed the suite wonderfully
o listing on MLS
o Open Houses with realtors and the public
- Our home sold for the asking price she recommended almost immediately
We found Candice to be very professional, friendly and pleasant to work with. We would recommend her to anyone wanting to sell their home or search for a new one.
Before choosing someone to represent us we went to a lot of open houses and met many Realtors. Candice Charron stood out in the group of people we met. She was the friendliest and most helpful Realtor we talked to, a very real and genuine “people person”.
Once we committed to her as our Realtor, we were very pleased that we did. Due to modern technology, she was always in contact with us via phone and e-mail, and always responded to our myriad of questions promptly. If she didn’t know the answer to our questions she found someone who did and got back to us quickly. She offered excellent suggestions and advice in our negotiations. On the rare occasion when we disagreed with her suggestion, she was very flexible and represented our ideas as if they were her own. Candice has developed marvellous negotiation skills during her business and sales careers and this helped us tremendously.
Just a few weeks after choosing Candice as our Realtor, we moved into our dream home. We consider ourselves very lucky to have met Candice when we did as we could not have found a better Realtor. We are recommending her to all our friends!

Having only lived in Vancouver a short time I finally decided after two plus years it was time to get into the real estate market. I asked friends if someone could recommend a real estate agent, Candice is one of the agents I met with. I pretty much knew after meeting her I was going to go with her as my Realtor (of course I didn’t tell her that).
Once I contacted Candice about my decision she got to work right away on my search and quickly knew what kind of person I was and what I’d actually like or not like. It was a pleasure dealing with Candice and she was always in contact with me day or night even with my busy work schedule. I always new Candice was truly working for me and had my best interest always in sight.
Thanks Candice for making my first buying experience in Vancouver a great experience!
Our real estate buying experience with Candice was excellent! She is incredibly hard working and very attentive to the needs of her clients. She only took us to see condos that were carefully selected according to what we were looking for and modified her searches based on our feedback as we looked at each condo. She was constantly monitoring the MLS system for new properties, which in Vancouver is essential as good deals don’t last long!
We were not in a hurry to buy a place and preferred to wait for a good deal, and we really appreciated Candice’s patience in that respect. Candice is also very professional, a quality we didn’t see in all the real estate agents we met with.
We would not hesitate to recommend Candice and will definitely call her the next time we buy a new home.

Candice sold our apartment in six days and helped to find a lovely new home for us. Her outstanding negotiation skills made both transactions settled at our favourable prices. She is committed; always on time and ready to go the extra mile to meet customer satisfaction. We were impressed by Candice’s communication skills as she understood our needs very quickly by asking the right questions.
It has been a great pleasure to work with Candice and we will definitely recommend her.

I was so pleased to have Candice as our realtor. My Realtor here referred Candice and another realtor to me, and then it was up to me to choose. Both Candice and the other realtor replied back to me, however I chose Candice. She gave me the feeling that she really wanted to work for me and made me feel important.
Once I replied to Candice, she immediately asked what I was looking for and the areas I wanted to buy a house. I replied back to her with some of my selections and indicated that I was looking for a condo for my daughter. Candice said that she specialized in condo’s – strata, and I felt very relieved to know this. I continued to communicate with Candice and told her that I would be coming to Vancouver for a 3 day visit and asked her to arrange the viewings. Since Candice knows the condo market she looked at my selections and she choose some other properties to view.
When we met Candice to start viewing properties she had portfolios ready for each day and then we did a whirlwind tour. She was so friendly and my daughter and I felt very comfortable with her.. Candice choose some great properties and had everything scheduled to a tee. I believe we saw over 15 properties (wasn’t sure of the number) and then we narrowed it down to 2 properties. The property that we choose was not originally on her schedule, but Candice did some research the night before and found it and thought that it might be what we were looking for.
Candice went out of her way to ensure that once we put an offer on the condo we had all the pertinent information needed and got a house inspection taken care of. She worked continuously on our purchase and was always a phone call away for any questions or concerns. Since I do not live in Vancouver, I really appreciated the referrals she gave me for home inspectors, house insurance, lawyer and home renovation company.
Since our purchase in Vancouver I have contacted my realtor in Lethbridge, Alberta and told him to refer any clients to Candice that are purchasing in the Vancouver area. I told him that she was so wonderful and knowledgeable and that she went way above and beyond for us. I thanked him for the referral and told him that we were pleased to have her as our realtor. I know that she will continue to excel as a realtor, because she is so exceptional.
Thanks for everything,
Gina & Alanna T.
Candice Charron is by far the most professional real estate agent we have worked with. She was always doing research to find solutions to our concerns and needs. Without Candice, we definitely would have been less informed and would not have gotten the best deal possible.
Candice is also a great person who is very understanding and attentive. If she didn’t have the answer she would make sure she looked into it for us and followed up as soon as she had the answer. If your looking for someone who has your best interest in mind, give Candice a call.

We found Candice at an open house we attended and immediately liked her personality and energy. After a quick initial meeting to let her know what we were looking for Candice quickly set up several town homes for us to tour. We found our perfect home within a week, which was a huge surprise for us as we anticipated looking for several weeks or months.
Candice did an excellent job walking us through the process of making an offer, reviewing strata minutes, having a home inspection, and she encouraged us to take our time to make our final decision. When it was all completed she brought Champagne to help us celebrate on possession day.
Her personality and energy made her very easy to work with and we knew she was a quick phone call or email away. We would recommend Candice to all our friends and family.
Thanks Candice for all your hard work and for helping us find our starter home.
Catherine & Mark
I’ve known a lot of realtors and Candice is the best at finding things, returning calls immediately and soothing the frantic buyer. My realtor friend in Lethbridge recommended Candice when I decided on a home in Abbotsford. We talked on the phone and emailed, I met her on a Friday and put in an offer on the Sunday.
I am super happy with our choice. We looked at well over 30 homes that weekend, and in the end I think she knew what I wanted better than I did and is a super negotiator. Did I mention my Lethbridge home was sold and I wanted a house in less than one month? and I wanted to find one that one and only weekend?
Thanks again Candice for the dedication and hard work! We’ll have to house shop again some day.
My husband and I recently sold our townhouse after buying a house and we had Candice Charron do both ends. We had met Candice at the open house of the home in which we now own. She was doing the open house for a colleague who was the listing agent.
When we decided to put in an offer, we called Candice. When the offer was accepted subject to selling our townhouse we decided to have Candice as our agent. She thoroughly researched the current market value and movement of townhouses in North Van and presented a realistic and honest opinion of what she thought our townhouse should be listed at. She was also committed to selling our townhouse within the six week time frame we needed. In fact, the townhouse sold in just under two weeks within the price range we wanted.
We feel that Candice is a personable and highly motivated realtor. She helped us move boxes into storage and made helpful suggestions to get our townhouse ready to sell. She arranged for the photographer and had the listing up on various sites within a couple of days. She went door-to-door in the 65 unit complex inviting neighbours and their friends to the first open house. In other words, she covered all avenues, determined to sell!
We especially appreciated that she kept us informed with frequent and detailed updates of the open houses and any other activity throughout the selling process. With the closing of each deal, Candice kept in contact and recommended various people required for the completion of paperwork.
We think Candice achieved what she said she would and we would not hesitate to recommend her as a listing agent.

Candice is a fantastic realtor!
She has excellent communication skills, is a strong negotiator, has solid market knowledge and understands building design (unlike any realtors I have previously worked with).
From the first day, Candice understood what I was looking for. She worked tirelessly on my behalf and was always organized, professional and personable. Most of all she had the vision and desire to understand my needs and to realize how the home could (or could not) be renovated to create my ideal space.
Candice always had my best interest in mind and I would highly recommend her to my friends and family.
I totally lucked out by having Candice as my realtor. Her knowledge was invaluable to me as a first time buyer. She is professional, high energy, and a shrewd negotiator. I hope to work with her again and again, and I highly recommend her to everyone.
I live in Toronto and owned a condo in Vancouver downtown area. When I decided to finally sell my condo in Vancouver, one of my friends in Vancouver recommended that I work with Candice as in his opinion she was a very professional and trustworthy real estate estate agent.
It was very important for me to work with a proactive and trustworthy agent because I don’t live in Vancouver and I didn’t have a chance to be in Vancouver for the sale of my property. So, Candice and I have never actually met face-to-face but I must say that I was extremely pleased (and somewhat even surprised) with the quality of agent services that Candice provided me with.
She is extremely efficient in her actions and she is a great communicator. She took initiative from day one and acted very professionally in every situation we went through while trying to market and sell my condo. Candice has great marketing skills and is very knowledgeable about Vancouver real estate market – she guided me through every step of the sale process and now looking back, I am really happy that I followed her professional advice on some issues we had faced.
In addition, I felt that I received a lot of value-added services from Candice, it was a great value for money paid for her services! I would certainly recommend Candice to everyone.
Candice, thanks once again for all your great work. Good luck!
I have really enjoyed working with you. From the first meeting I felt confident and assured that you would handle the sale of my property efficiently and effectively.
You never over-inflated the price you thought I could get for my home and I never felt pressured to sign an agreement with you. I have always felt you handled the sale of my property in a professional manner and always had my best interests in mind.
I would recommend your services to anyone who wants a professional real estate agent. I have already recommended you to my friends, co-workers and most importantly my family.
During the search for my new home I felt that the listings being sent to me and being shown to me met most of the criteria I had given you. Again, I felt you had my best interests in mind and helped to guide me to the best “fit” even though I was in a rush to purchase after you so quickly sold my home.
I never felt pressured or rushed to make a decision on a listing nor did I feel that I was an inconvenience to you even though I asked you plenty of questions about the listings and asked to see plenty of listings.
When we did find my new home I felt that your comprehensive approach to making an offer is what helped us successfully complete the purchase. I have never had such exceptional service! I can’t ever thank you enough for being there on my moving day and helping me work with my movers – you completely blew me away when you even stayed to help me unpack a bit!
Thank you again for everything! – I look forward to working with you again.
Thank you so much for your patience and helping us find the right place. You made the whole process fun and I looked forward to going out with you every time!
Thank you for answering our questions and being so great at what you do!
I am so thankful for the AMAZING referral to Candice Charron. I sincerely appreciated and enjoyed the opportunity to work with Candice over the past few weeks. I found her to be very efficient, knowledgeable and attentive of my unique needs. Considering that I have no experience with the downtown condo market in Vancouver… the fact she lives there, and understands the market intimately, provided me with a great deal of comfort. It can be disconcerting to send your son to the Vancouver Film School… two Provinces away, however, I can honestly say that Candice understood my apprehension and looked after me as if it were her own child that was beginning to embark on such a journey.
I should also mention Candice took “going the extra mile” to a new level, literally, … while we were in the final stages of preparing our offer… I was getting tight on time to catch my plane back to Saskatoon. Candice released me to the airport so that I could return my rental car and check in. She completed the documents, printed them from home and then headed out to the airport herself where we signed them on the hood of her vehicle in temporary parking. I’m convinced that had we not presented our offer immediately that afternoon, I would not be the owner of a new condo in Vancouver as we speak… unbelievable SERVICE!!!
Beyond the quick, friendly and efficient service, I must also say that Candice has a vibrant personality, an amazing sense of humour and although she is very business focussed and oriented, it was great getting to know her as an individual as well. I continue to think we will have a relationship beyond the “Sale”, which is so important to me.
My thanks again for the TERRIFIC referral that I was given… it was greatly appreciated!
I met Candice after I stopped working with an agent who didn’t listen to my needs or price range. This person was aggressive and tried to pressure me to make an offer even when I was not sure.
Candice took the time to hear what I wanted and showed me places that fit my lifestyle and my budget. She found me details about buildings I couldn’t get from an MLS search and explained how condos worked.
She worked on my schedule and showed me a reasonable amount of places on our search days so I didn’t need a day to recover. I would highly recommend her.
Candice was recommended to me by several friends who had worked with her to buy properties and what a fantastic recommendation she was! She saved the day on many occasions by her in-depth knowledge of properties in the areas I was looking at, within the price range that I needed to buy. Her extensive knowledge saved me lots of time and effort and ensured that I bought a property that fit my lifestyle and my budget.
Candice’s extended network of capable colleagues also meant that I was able to arrange mortgages, appraisals, and insurance without any problem. Thanks Candice for a great job and for helping me establish my new life in Vancouver.
A very happy homeowner!
During the Summer Bert and I were trying to become familiar with the real estate market in North Vancouver. We were looking for a second home in order to be able to spend time near family. Our home is in Ontario, where the market is quite different.
We met Candice by chance at an Open House. We liked her. She was cheery, personable and attentive as she listened to our story. We had met two other realtors and found that they didn’t listen carefully, although they were keen to do business. Candice made comments appropriate to our circumstances.
At first we had not decided what type of housing we should look at. After we decided that we wanted a Strata, Candice prepared a list of 10 in our price range that were having Open Houses the next Sunday. We organized our tour and were quickly able to determine our priorities after looking at these places. Then Candice arranged a tour for us to see some other places. She was able to provide us important details.
Once we settled on a possible Strata for purchase, Candice was superb at extensive research involved with all aspects of the Strata itself, as well as the Strata Corporation. In addition, Candice has a broad network of helpful people involved in housing. For example, she gave us the name of a Notary Public who was excellent to work with. Besides that, when it was time for negotiating Candice showed herself to excel in that area as well. As we worked with Candice we quickly gained full confidence in proceeding with our purchase.
We found that Candice was by far the best person we have ever dealt with. She stands head and shoulders above any others we have met. We are delighted to recommend her and will contact her for any other real estate needs.
Bert & Carolyn
Candice, I want to say thank you for helping me buy my first home. You were very good to me. Your patience with all my questions along with your knowledge and confidence made me feel secure. You have a really nice way of making people feel comfortable and at ease.
This is an experience I won’t forget. You made the whole process uncomplicated and I will always think of you with a lot of fondness.
Because of the great service that we received from Candice Charron we really wanted to go above and beyond with our testimonial and supply something a little different.
We read through every testimonial on the web site and found that everything that we wanted to say had already been said. Even in situations completely different from our own, we feel that every recommendation is simply indicative of the ‘Full On’ support that we received from Candice. If you’ve never bought a house before you should still already know that a lot of people provide bare minimum service and in a stressful time such as buying a home, this should never be allowed to stand.
Candice did everything in her power to expose any item that was holding up the process and motivate anyone who was not practicing due diligence towards achieving a timely business ending. We just don’t understand how in spending all that quality time with us that she managed to have time to work with anybody else.
Richard and Jill
We live in Winnipeg, Manitoba and recently had Candice Charron list our Condo in downtown Vancouver. A friend of ours that lives in Vancouver knew we wanted to sell our condo and recommended Candice to us.
We contacted Candice and after talking for a short while, felt very comfortable with her. She had answers to our questions and gave us a great education on the Vancouver real estate market, feeling confident, we proceeded with Candice as our listing agent.
The whole process was pain free as Candice looked after everything, once the paperwork was signed we sat back and waited for an offer. Candice kept us well informed, showings, open houses, market activity, you name it she was on it! We would certainly use Candice again! And P.S. she returns your calls and e-mails promptly….
Shelley and Randy
Candice Charron was referred to me by a family member who described her as an amazing realtor. The glowing testimonials provided by happy clients posted on her website confirmed that assessment. I contacted Candice and was impressed with her immediate and complete responsiveness to all my questions and concerns.
There was a long wait from the day I first emailed Candice to the time when I was ready to go ahead with listing my property for sale. She waited patiently and at the right time was fully prepared with an organized action plan. From start to finish, she gave me undivided attention, returning emails and phone calls promptly in a friendly unhurried fashion. In preparing the property for listing, Candice’s creativity and ingenuity were remarkable. Her extensive marketing experience resulted in a visually attractive listing on the internet, which undoubtedly contributed to the sale being completed within the time-frame I had indicated. In a very short period of time in selling, Candice held a couple of open houses with great success.
Candice was dedicated enough to go the extra mile, taking a keen interest in doing the very best possible for me. She looked after every little detail, demonstrated boundless enthusiasm and good humour. Her cheerful personality contributed to a positive experience. I can highly recommend Candice to anyone looking for a realtor who can provide excellent customer service, as Candice is the best one I have had the pleasure to work with.
I used Candice Charron to list my condo to sell and I was so impressed by her services that I insisted my sister use her to list her condo after the realtor she had couldn’t sell hers and her listing ended up expiring after 6 months.
I know its hard to find a good, trustworthy Realtor and I just want to reassure anyone looking for a realtor to sell their property or to buy for that matter that Candice is all that, plus very motivated, hard working, and will market your home to sell “quickly”. She has great experience with all types of residential real estate, single family, townhouses, vacant lots, condos, and has helped re-build and renovate homes.
She listed my condo and sold it within 11 days while other condos in the building are still sitting there unsold, some for months, others longer! She sold my sisters place within 33 days, the same story, other condos that were for sale at the same time still sitting there unsold.
In my opinion the Realtor you choose must be motivated, have an action plan, and sell as quickly as possible, for the best price! I meet many Realtors every day in new development sales, and based on that, I know a good Realtor when I see one. I trust Candice, and hope anyone looking for a good realtor won’t look any further. List with Candice if you want it SOLD!
Candice Charron is by far the most professional real estate agent I have ever dealt with. I had the privilege of having Candice as my agent when I sold my condo last year, and purchased a new one recently.
I was quickly impressed by her expertise of the real estate market, along with her detailed knowledge of most municipalities in the Metro Vancouver area. In addition to her vast knowledge and skill set, she is a consummate professional and works extremely hard to make sure you are completely satisfied. She pays attention to the little details, is always punctual and well turned out.
She is most certainly a strong negotiator and got me the best purchase price for my new condo. However, Candice’s best quality is her down-to-earth and genuine personality. I feel many real-estate agents lack these important qualities these days.
Candice made the transition from the sale completion to moving in a breeze. In addition to checking in on me after I moved in, she provided me with a detailed list of things to complete before moving in (i.e. set up Hydro, strata payments, visitor parking pass etc..) While I don’t plan on moving anytime soon, if I needed the services of a realtor, I would look to Candice first.
If you want top quality service and honest assessments choose Candice. Her stats and awards speak for themselves!
