I have worked with Candice on a number of occasions including purchasing a home as well as Property Management of an existing home. Her service is second to none! She is a pleasure to work with.
I’ve received thanks and compliments from every client that I’ve referred to Candice. She’s well organized, highly motivated, and guided by a sound moral compass. With her network of trusted contractors and handymen, up-to-date knowledge of both tenant and owner responsibilities, and her prompt monthly disbursement accounting, she has taken the worry out of owning a rental property for over 15 years.
First Candice listened to our wants and showed us properties that we were interested in. When we finally made an offer she met us to make the process easier. We had some issues with the HOA’s and Candice went to bat for us always on our side and went the extra mile to clear some issues that we had with the association. She always met me or my contractors over at the condo before we closed so I could get the bids that I needed. She even let in the chimney cleaner because I couldn’t get there in time. Candice was the most thorough and efficient agent that we have ever worked with. She sent us a disk of all our paper work and that impressed us both with her professionalism. My husband Alan Pekarcik has been a commercial broker for over 20 years and he was also impressed by Candice and we will definitely use her services again.
Candice goes above and beyond as a realtor. She has helped me buy two homes and short-sale one home. She also initiated and helped rent my condo during the selling process (when it was vacant for 6 months). I look forward to purchasing and selling homes with her in the future. I have personally recommended her to members of my family and she has helped them purchase and sell many of their homes as well. Her knowledge of the market and communication with other realtors has helped me get the best possible prices when both buying and selling. She also has a network of people that she regularly communicates with which can come in handy for financing or with any issues that may arise during the negotiation process. She is proficient in real estate law as well and will research in depth anything she is unfamiliar with. My family and I have been extremely pleased with her both professionally and personally.
We lived in a rental home that Candice managed and her professionalism and friendliness made living in that home one of the best experiences we’ve had in a rental. Thank you Candice for all you did for us!
Candice was aggressive without being pushy, handled all questions and issues during the process with ease, and made our home purchase a breeze. She knows her stuff! She also does property management and had access to lots of resources.
Candice is the best agent we’ve ever worked with. She is knowledgeable, professional, and extremely responsive to our needs. She have helped us to purchase several investment properties and is managing all properties for us. The value of our investment properties have all gone up significantly and rising still. She was also able to find us good tenants within 10 days of closing escrow above market price. Our tenants are very happy with our properties and the services & cares provided by Candice and her team!
We could not have accomplished all these without Candice! She is the BEST in her business and we would like to think she is also a family friend!

We use Candice as a property manager for our rental unit and she is awesome! We highly recommend her. We live in Kansas and have complete peace of mind with Candice in charge.
Candice was very helpful when I decided to move to California. She started sending me property searches of potential condos for two years before I decided to move out here. She was patient through the whole process and we finally found a property I could buy after I moved out in the tough rising market. At every point during the buying process, she responded to every question promptly and communicated in an effective manner. Her integrity, market intelligence, and organization set her apart from other agents. Her knowledge of the market and how to get things done in the right way, allows her to make desired results happen right on time for closing. She is great at following up as well and will not leave any loose ends or unfinished task. I am thankful to Candice for the many ways she helped me in my purchase.
Candace is one of the most professional people I’ve ever met! She has been managing property for me or almost 3 years this has been one of the few times in my life I’ve worked with somebody who consistently exceeds my expectations
Candice is truly the most outstanding agent/broker we have ever worked with! She helped us purchase a home and negotiate a great price. Candice also helped us to lease our first home and found the greatest tenants. She handled every aspect for the buying and rental process so my husband and I felt truly taken care of and stress free. She is professional and thoroughly knows the real estate business. Her honesty made us feel so comfortable, that she had our best interest throughout the entire process of leasing our home and buying our beautiful new home. We feel very fortunate that Candice is our broker and highly recommend her to all of our friends!
Candice has done a great job managing our rental condo for the past several years. She handles everything! Re-rentals are taken care of quickly, helping us to avoid skipping monthly rental income. We highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a great property manager.

You will not find a better Realtor in Orange County.
I recently bought and sold two homes with Candice and her team and left beyond impressed. Having worked in the mortgage business for years.. I value people that are passionate about their craft, serve with tremendous customer service, display integrity, and have the proper expertise to deliver. In Candice Blair you have these qualities in abundance.
When buying or selling a home…there is no better choice.
A PROUD NEW HOMEOWNER IN LAGUNA HILLS
I rented a condo that NPP managed. Candice and her associate Debbie were wonderful, very friendly and professional. They were extremely responsive whenever I had to get in touch with them with a question or concern. I knew that I didn’t have to worry about any maintenance concerns because they were always on top of it and had great follow up. It was the best rental experience I’ve had!
Candice not only sold my home in exactly one day at the highest price ever achieved in that neighborhood, she managed and facilitated an extremely fast close of escrow. Before selling my home, she managed the property as a rental, selecting excellent tenants, managing all issues during the two years of rental and facilitating a thoughtful transition from rental property to sold home between the buyers and the tenants.
I could not have visualized a better experience and would recommend both services enthusiastically…
My son and I have been working with Candice on property purchases and sales for several years and she has been extremely professional and always gets the job done. She is prompt and stays on top of things until they are completed. Candice also recommends excellent contractors who are prompt; proficient and have reasonable rates. We look forward to future successful years of working with Candice on real estate transactions.
Candice has made it a joy to own an investment property, even though I live thousands of miles away. She is always careful to check with me, but she is so competent and thorough that usually all I have to do is to approve her recommendations. She has turned my property into a painless, profitable investment. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who has real estate needs in the area.
We were so lucky to meet Candice. She was so responsive and so helpful, helping us research and understand everything in the contracts. She was a real advocate and did not rush us into making decisions until we found the home we loved and wanted to call our own. I am glad to say that after working with Candice we not only have a realtor for life, we have a friend for life. I highly recommend her.
My husband and I just bought a home in San Clemente. Thank goodness we started working with Candice!! This process could have been a nightmare, but she is an absolute dream come true. Honestly, she’s an inspiration! She didn’t overlook one single email, text or phone call in the midst of coordinating between us, the escrow company, lenders, our trustee, the sellers agent, the termite company, the home inspectors, the neighbors and whoever else she helped to keep organized. She kept an incredibly warm, calm and friendly demeanor throughout the entire process and didn’t hesitate to answer thousands of questions for us. Candice feels like a great friend as well as a powerful ally. She has been an incredible source of advice and information on all things, and has offered us her help even after we close. She helped us screen contractors, even meeting with them for me when I was out of town. I find myself asking, how does she do it?! In the future, I refuse to work with anyone else in this area.
Candice is one of the most knowledgeable and competent people I have ever worked with. She is extremely informative and helped my wife and I every step of the way in the purchase of our first home. She was always available and responded to all correspondence quickly and accurately. She even helped us find a great contractor for remolding! I highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy, sell or manage homes and properties. Not only was she supremely great at her job, she is one of the nicest people I’ve met.
Candice is the most professional person I’ve encountered. She’s polite, friendly and knowledgeable. She knew which neighborhoods to avoid because they weren’t good for kids, and she was patient enough to show me more than several properties–a few of them more than once. I also have a German Shepard and she was able to negotiate a lower pet deposit. This is the second time I’ve worked with Candice in seven years and if I ever move again, she’s the first person I’m calling! Candice is the best choice when looking for a new place to live.
Candice is the only real estate agent to work with and you are making a HUGE mistake if you don’t. She is intelligent, driven, and a fantastic negotiator. She will do everything possible to get you the house you want even if it means knocking on doors to see if people want to sell. She is knowledgable on all aspects of the buying process and well educated in its complexities. Additionally she has resources at her disposal to help solve unusual problems that arise. Lastly, she is not at all just interested in showing you the home and getting her commission. She is 100% there with you the entire way and will make personal sacrifices in order to ensure a smooth ride for her clients. My family has used her for many transactions and we will continue to use her without even wasting a moment thinking about using anyone else.
Candice was wonderful in finding us the best property with everything we asked for on the market She also has done an excellent job taking us thru the entire processes including mortgage and escrow. We love her service and will recommend to anyone we know. Jack and Nancy
I know Candice personally and professionally and would not hesitate to refer her to anyone. She truly has her clients best interests at heart and uses her extensive knowledge to generate a positive outcome for all involved. She listed our home and was on top of every detail, it was a seamless process and we were very happy with the end result.
It was such a pleasure to work with Candice. She has a very pleasant genuine demeanor. She’s also sharp as a pin! Candice was not just in it for the money, she actually cared about our situation. This was our first home purchase. We dealt with a greedy money hungry shark of an agent prior to her. Our loyalty lies with Candice and her company for our future Purchases. Thanks Candice much love and respect!
Candice Blair is a class act. She was so professional, knowledgeable, and kind-hearted. Her genuine desire to help you is apparent in all that she does. She is an extremely kind person and so sweet, yet she is still able to negotiate well and make sure things get done. You will be so happy & feel fortunate to have her as your realtor. My husband and I were looking to sell our home and stumbled across her sort of by accident. We already had someone else we were planning to use, however, we were so impressed by her expertise, professionalism, and genuineness that we felt compelled to have her list our home. We are so glad we did and we even ended up having her help us on the buying end too because we felt so comfortable with her. She helped us find the perfect home! Candice has a great work ethic and is extremely thorough so you feel so reassured that everything is covered, which is so important with buying/selling a home. She went above and beyond for us. We will be forever grateful!
Candice has been amazing. She Has helped us leasing homes in Orange County since 2009. She is extremely detailed and knowledgeable about Orange County. Because of that my wife and I promised ourselves that when we finally buy a home we will call Candice immediately. She has connections everywhere, whether it be a handyman, locksmiths , gardener etc. Candice is never concerned with how much money she will make, she is genuinely only concerned with her clients well being. She fights for you every step of the way. She helped us purchase our dream home, and made the escrow process seamless and stress free and we are forever grateful.
My family and I recently used Candice for both selling our house in Lake Forest and buying a house in San Juan Capistrano. She was great! From the moment we began the process of staging our house and listing it to the open house to finding our next house and closing all deals, Candice was outstanding at all stages. She was always incredibly professional and we always felt that our needs and interests were her priority. When issues arose (as they always do when buying or selling a home) she dealt with them immediately and she was accessible whenever we needed her. We plan to stay in touch with her and recommend her to our friends when they are buying or selling.
I can not express our gratitude and level of appreciation we have for Candice. She is so incredibly knowledgeable and thorough in her work. Candice has always gone above and beyond taking care of us, finding our dream home, and executing a fantastic deal with an easy and seamless process. She has a true love for helping people and doing whats right for them. I highly recommend Candice Blair to anyone in need of a genuine realtor who has a big heart for helping to make great decisions. We are so happy in our new home!
We met Candice while she was a showing agent at an open house we attended. She immediately stood out for her warmth, attentiveness, and knowledge of the house. She was more prepared than other agents we’d encountered. She also wasn’t pushy; we never felt pressured. We didn’t really like the house, but we liked her. When it was time for us to pick an agent, we reached out to Candice. From beginning to end, she was accommodating, patient, sincere, helpful, and took the time to learn about us. She efficiently helped us hone in on our search and identify potential houses. While touring the houses, she was knowledgeable about neighborhoods, traffic, schools, tax rates, and anything else we could think to ask. One time, she even contacted an HOA for us to inquire about rules surrounding fence construction. She also has a great feel for how much potential renovations would cost, and has reliable contacts for those renovations if so desired. When we finally found our dream house, her insights helped us determine our offer amount and negotiate the repair list after inspections. She even helped clear up some issues with our lender and insurance company by dealing with them directly. As first time homebuyers, the thought of spending our life savings on a single purchase was daunting, but Candice and her team patiently helped us through the process and made it as painless and stress-free as possible. When we dealt with the lender, title company, inspector, seller’s agent, appraiser, and others, they all seemed to only want a sale to go through ASAP. But when working with Candice, we knew we had someone on our side who genuinely cared about us and wanted us to get the best house for the best deal. We really can’t recommend Candice and her team enough, and have already passed along her information to our friends and coworkers.
Buying a home is a stressful time but Candice eased my anxiety and was patient and knowledgeable. She ensured the process would go as smooth as possible and handled every hiccup without hesitation. She was able to get us in a house that I thought was out of our budget. I was highly impressed with her negotiation skills and her patience with all my questions. Thank you for finding us our “forever” home.
I was very happy with Candice, and her knowledge. I felt comfortable knowing she can answer all questions and concerns I may have. Our condo sold right away, and closing went without a hitch. I would recommend her without hesitation.
