Candice Vilaire - Lic. Associate Real Estate Broker
A “pioneer” resident of Boerum Hill and an established real estate professional since 2005, Candice offers clients a combination of local smarts and business savvy. You will benefit from her wealth of knowledge about Brooklyn and her first-hand experience renting and buying property in the area.
As a native Brooklynite, Candice was always enchanted by the unique spirit and history of the Brooklyn neighborhood she calls home. She saw the area’s charm and potential, long before Brooklyn appeared on the mainstream radar, and would frequently tour the surrounding streets and cobblestone blocks admiring the construction of the brownstones and churches. It was out of this genuine love of charming old Brooklyn that her passion for real estate evolved.
Patience, empathy, compassion and a sense of humor are the hallmarks of Candice’s personal style and business ethos. She understands the emotion involved with renting in this competitive NYC market as well as buying or selling a home, because she has been there herself, and works diligently to ensure that all parties’ needs are understood and met. As a result, Candice not only enjoys repeat business and referrals, but calls many former clients friends. Candice’s professionalism and friendly style have been recognized by her peers and the media alike.
Candice knows all of the area’s top landlords and real estate related service providers and can refer you to reputable, local attorneys, mortgage brokers and other professionals.
On her spare time, Candice loves to keep active and enjoys practicing Yoga in her neighborhood and is an avid runner.
