Very aggressive on behalf of her clients - Tom Williams - Huntingto July 2017
Candace is truly a gem. She took such good care of us through every step of the process, and even after the sale closed she has continued to go above and beyond in being helpful and resourceful. She operates with calm and patience at all times, even while still communicating a sense of urgency and keeping the process moving. - Ellen Dunne, San Francis June 2017
Lindsay Smith was recommended by the broker from the local office. I was leary of working with someone who had not been recommended by someone I know. But once we established communications, Lindsay kept in constant contact with me (I was out of state). We talked via email, text, and phone often. We met when I was in town and she showed us properties she set aside with our specific criteria. Lindsay is very knowledgeable about Novato and about the myriad details concerning real estate in this area. She is very relaxed and easy to work with. My husband and I were thrilled with her professionalism and her service to us.
We were very pleased with our home buying experience. Lindsay Smith is a great asset to this office! - Arlene And Jeff Hankins, March 2017
Carole is professional, timely, sticks to the budget, and knows the neighborhoods. She is thoughtful and accommodating. I would use her as a broker again and have recommended her to friends. - Elizabeth Brix, Santa Ro March 2017
Her understanding of our needs and attention to our problems. This woman has the patience is a saint. She worked so hard for us dealing with an incredibly difficult and incompetent lender; she was amazing. We got our house only because of her diligence.
We can't say enough in praise of Ms. Kilkers work.
She is a five star representative of Century 21. We will recommend her to everyone.
We will never use Wells Fargo Bank again.
Thank you. Thank you. You are like a good friend. - Benay Von Husen December 2016
From previous interactions we had found her to be reliable an knowledgeable and communicative. Easy to work with.
Didn't have much interaction with staff but what the was went smoothly.
She was very accessible and easy to get in touch with. Responded to our inquires immediately.
In addition to Candace's performance as an agent there was the added, and very welcome service of her husband, Randall, who is a contractor. He handled all of the details required to comply with codes etc... this was very helpful as we were not in the area and able to set those things up. - David Stoebel, Ashland O April 2017
She works so hard for you. Really goes the extra mile to insure everything is great. - Bobby Novato Ca April 2016
My wife and I were searching for a home in the North Bay and looking at several websites. We wanted to live in Marin Co. or Sonoma Co. We found that Marin County was out of our price range. We have good friends in Petaluma and we thought it might be a good fit for us. My wife found Denise Kilker of Century 21 online and she had a conversation with her and they hit it off. We decided that we wanted her to be our broker. She searched hard for us for properties in the North Bay, including Petaluma. Turns out there were fewer homes in Petaluma that we could afford. There were more homes in the Cotati and Rohnert Park area. We didn't want to move as far north as Santa Rosa because I work in San Francisco. We found a home that we liked in Rohnert Park. Denise was also was very helpful in working with our lender and expediting the process of getting our loan. We could not have done it as easily without her help.
We would not have gotten the home we bought at the below market price without Denise's help in negotiating. She was very helpful in helping us work with the title company and the seller's realtor as well.
We have complete trust in Denise Kilker. She was available for us at all times during the transaction. She is very professional yet friendly and warm and she was/is also very patient with us.
This was different than any other sales experience we have ever had. We didn't feel like we were being talked into buying a home but rather that we were being helped in finding a place to live. - Juan Aldana, San Francis December 2016
Totally please with Candace Shelton and her professional skills and knowledge and would recommend Candace Shelton to anyone thinking of selling their property. Trying to sell a property and being in a different state (home for sale in California, and I live in Virginia) was a huge challenge and Candace skillfully handled every concern and issue. - Jan Ramp, Herndon, Va April 2017
Candace & Randall were invaluable assets in the sale of the house. - Joanne, Novato, Ca March 2017
Candace and Randall solicited (in a positive approach) their services via mail and phone and I found them to be knowledgeable of the local market including the neighborhood as well as very professional. Subsequently I couldn't have made a better choice to list the home as the trustee of the estate. They took care of everything and considering the condition of the home it was quite an extensive undertaking. As a business owner with limited time and Candace knowing the market, pricing the home correctly and selling in such a short time made the process seamless and actually enjoyable. I would highly recommend Candace Shelton. - Scott Olund December 2016
We were concerned about the hassle and complications the sale of my mom's home was likely to bring, and Candace and Randall did a wonderful job of assuring us that getting the house ready, and then sold, would be no problem. They laid out a great plan, and then implemented it coordinating with us, and helping my elderly mother be comfortable with the process, in a kind and friendly and very professional way. We couldn't be more satisfied with the process and the outcome.
My husband and I feel that Candace and Randall went above and beyond what we would normally expect of a Real Estate Agent. We were very impressed by how they work as a team. The house was in rough shape, the back yard a mess, and we agreed to sell it "as is" - empty and clean, but ready for a fix up. Randall oversaw a lot of repairs and preparation the house needed. Candace marketed it to best advantage, contacted neighbors, and managed to get two offers within the first week. They coordinated the work and the sale with us while we were out of state during the time of the sale. And they kept my elderly mother, whose house it was, in the loop with personal visits to her care home and phone calls to help her through the sales process. They kept me informed of every step in the process, and we were able to coordinate everything together by phone, text and email while my husband and I were out of state. Candace's exemplary organization and communication skills made this possible. Randall's skills and experience as both an Agent and a Contractor made it possible to get the house ready for sale while we were out of town. The kindness and compassion they both showed made the entire process easy for my mother. We could not have envisioned a more positive experience or outcome to the sale of my mom's home. We had the offer, and a back up offer, within the first week. - Brad And Robyn Myers October 2016
Candace was very important to the sale of our property. She guided us through the process professionally and cheerfully. I would highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying property in Marin. - Scott Neeley Novato, Cal July 2016
Candace was recommended by a long time friend. He is a managed at Century 21 in Santa Rosa CA
Candace and Randall were exceptionally easy to work with. Every thing about the transaction was explained clearly. Communication about the progress was clear, she took the time to make sure that I understood the process. Candace was in constant contact with the Buyer's Agent and made sure that the deal went through smoothly. Candace did an excellent job and I would not hesitate to recommend her.
Randall Rudolph (Candace's husband and agent) also was a big help, he helped me trim the trees back from around and over the house, installed Smoke Detectors, and made a dump run. - Glen Phillips Middleton July 2016
Candace and Randall are both very professional and knowledgeable. They staid on top of every aspect of the sale and provided timely and accurate guidance throughout the sale. - David Whitwill, Ellensbu March 2016
I would recommend Candace to anyone buying or selling a home! She was attentive and respectful. Candace went to bat for me when I needed it most. I will be forever grateful for her services. - Simone O'leary, Novato December 2015
Candace is on top of things as they occur and is pleasant and easy to have on your team. Always available to respond. - John Monte December 2015
Absolutely Awesome!! Knew her market and neighborhood well. Wouldn't work with anyone else in Novato! Wonderful person!!
Nothing to add or change. Candace was exceptional! - Colleen Silva August 2015
Candace Shelton is an excellent real estate broker. She always followed up any
actions or questions that I had. She is focussed, generous with her time, patient, and understood my needs throughout the process of searching for a home.
