Bought a home in Kirkland, WA
My wife, myself, and our 7 month old son recently moved from Santa Monica, CA to the Seattle area. It was a challenging endeavor with a new baby, but being in the middle of a pandemic made everything much harder. We couldn’t safely fly back and forth to prep our move, or our eventual home, and the housing market in Seattle was feeling like it was quickly leaving us in the dust from an affordability stand point.
A friend introduced us to Candace, and we immediately knew we were in good hands. She quickly briefed on what to expect in such a fast paced, ever changing housing market. She patiently counseled us, helped us form realistic expectations, and toured many houses for us on Video Chat before we even moved up here.
By the time we were here, we had a pretty good understanding of what we would need to do to get a home. Candace helped us hit the ground running, tour a ton of houses in available windows, warned us about factors we might not have considered (this is our first home purchase), and finally, this week, helped us close on our first home.
The whole time she was caring, helpful, responsive, and knowledgeable. I truly don’t think we could’ve managed to successfully purchase our home without her help, and after everything, we feel very fortunate to consider her a friend as well.
Cannot recommend Candace more highly, and I intend to connect any friends in the area with her who are looking for homes in the future.
Bought a home in Lake Forest Park, WA
Words cannot fully describe how amazing it has been working with Candace. She helped us find and purchase our first home in the midst of this crazy Seattle housing market. She took to heart all of our interests, but also provided vision, which was so welcome as newbies to the housing market and to interior design. She was always accessible, knows how to make your bid competitive and was incredibly proactive in reaching out and negotiating with the sellers (we landed our home on our first bid with Candace). Most of all, recognizing how emotional this whole process can be, we appreciated her honesty and for just being a steady sounding board (and counselor) for us. Highly recommend if you are looking for a great real estate agent!

TLDR: Don’t look any further, just hire Candace.
The Seattle market is absolute mayhem, but with Candace at your side you will not only get through it, but find your dream home in the process. Simply put, Candace is a seasoned real estate agent who knows the greater Seattle market, is super responsive, but more importantly is always on your side. She takes to heart your wish list and vision for your home, and helps you not lose sight of that during the entire process. She is also honest and open, which helped immensely as we were faced with the new realities of what it meant to get a home in this market. Candace’s professionalism, experience, and fantastic negotiation skills are what make her the best person to have representing you and your interests when making an offer. While we don’t have plans to move from our new home any time soon, I know with out a doubt we will work with Candace again should the time come.
Bought a home in Edmonds,WA
Candace is great to work with. She is personable and always has your best interest in mind. She will take the time to get to know exactly what you want in a home and will fight hard to ensure that you don’t make a desperate decision. You need that, especially in the insane Seattle market. She is also extremely responsive and makes herself available almost 24/7. She was with us through the emotional roller coaster and through 6 crazy offers. In the end, we got the perfect house that checked every single box in our wishlist, plus more. Thank you, Candace!! 🙂

Candace is the best! She helped us throughout the process of buying a new townhouse. She is detail oriented and well organized. She made us feel that we are the most important client by answering her phone or email at any time & listening to our needs and desires as well as answering any questions we had. Also, she fought for us during the process and gave us the best deal! Very professional and great attitude all the time! We felt very lucky to have her as our agent!

We loved working with Candace on buying our first home and can’t recommend her enough! Candace is a stellar real estate broker: supportive, helpful, knowledgeable, and reassuring.

She’s a wonderful partner to have in the challenges and the joys of the home buying process!
Bought a home in Shoreline, WA
I cannot even begin to explain, the whole process of buying a home was a breeze. Candace suggested an amazing lender, was always on top of everything and would show new areas that we hadn’t even considered but were exactly what we were looking for. She is personable and a great advocate for her clients. She was very responsive and answered our questions timely. In this hot market, everyone needs a real estate agent that is committed like she is.
Bought a single family home in Federal Way, WA
I highly recommend Candace Hagen as your next real estate agent! Candace was amazing to work with! The process is stressful especially during a pandemic. However, because of her expertise, relationships in the market and encouraging support I felt more at peace throughout the entire journey with her as my agent. When I put an offer in on the house I ended up purchasing she was in regular contact with the sellers realtor and with me. Her relationships with my lender and the sellers realtor helped the process go smoothly and efficiently.
Bought a home in Downtown Business District, Bellingham, WA
“Candace was our realtor for finding a home for my parents with a water view on one of the islands. She is super responsive, straight forward, kind, and genuine. She definitely cares about her clients and makes a would-be-stressful process as fun as possible. She’ll take the time to make sure you’re getting what you need. When we considered compromising on some of our must haves, like enough bedrooms for the family to visit, she made sure we stuck to our priorities. I will definitely work with her again in the future.”

“I highly recommend Candace. She’s on top of everything from the start to the end and extremely quick to respond to any questions at any point. Candace is very helpful for the entire process: finding houses, negotiations, and she makes sure that everything is moving forward correctly when in contract. Don’t hesitate to reach out to Candace, she’s great!”
Bought a Single Family home in Tacoma, WA.
“Candace was amazing to work with. We started our home buying process June 2019, and closed in a home June 2020. Over this period we had (as buyers) been unsure of what we were looking for and have changed our minds on the types of homes we were looking for several times, through all of this Candace was optimistic, energetic, supportive, responsive, flexible, comforting, and she kept us going. When we finally found the house we liked Candace was very quick to getting our paperwork completed, connected us with a better lender and continued to be responsive and available for all sorts of questions. Its been a pleasure working with her and we could not have gotten the house we love if it wasn’t for her hard work, dedication, and Encouragement.”
Bought a Single Family home in Seattle, WA.
“Candace has been very helpful from start to finish with our relocation from Vegas to Seattle. We met her during an open house last year while we were doing our research on potential Seattle neighborhoods to buy a house while our house in Vegas was put on the market. It took a while for our home to sell, and Candace kept in touch with us via email listings of MLS homes meeting our search criteria. After 6 months or so, our Vegas home found a cash buyer and we moved into a corporate rental in Seattle while looking for our new home. Candace met up with us once we arrived in Seattle; we had a pretty intense home search and saw 15 houses or so over 3 days. We made an offer on one house which we had seen last year from our research trip but it didn’t work out, so we made another offer for a new construction house which we also liked. The deal got done on this one and Candace was very helpful with the whole process: from making the offer, editing the contract, arranging inspections, helping with contractors, assisting with sourcing materials, etc… you name it, she was there for us all the way. We will not hesitate to recommend Candace to anyone looking for a real estate agent in Seattle, she truly went the “extra mile” for us!”
Bought a Condo in Seattle, WA.
“Candace was key for us to be able to get the deal that worked for us in a record time. She helped us while we’re shopping for mortgage loans and helped to speed up the process and got a good deal when making an offer. We’re able to close the deal in just 20 days after seeing the condo for the first time, it wouldn’t have been possible without her.”
Bought a Single Family home in Seattle, WA.
“We just closed the purchase of a terrific home in Seattle yesterday. This would not have been possible without the excellent help from our wonderful agent Candace Hagen. Candace is most knowledgeable, warm, caring, responsive, kind, and always eager to help. Most importantly, Candace is super customer oriented. She wants nothing less than the very best for us. We totally indulged ourselves in tremendous joy and pleasant surprises throughout the house hunting journey with Candace. We would highly recommend her to anyone.”

“Since this was my first time buying a house, I couldn’t have done it without Candace’s guidance! She was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the whole process and made sure I knew what was going on every step of the way. She also gave great advice on how to get the best deal when negotiating. I highly recommend working with her!”
