In 1983, Candice was bitten by the real estate 'bug' as a radio air personality broadcasting live from a new home development in Palm Springs, CA, although it would be nine years before she would act on it.
After attending college, university and radio broadcasting school in Southern CA, Candice taught Communications, Commercial Acting and Personal Development classes for four Los Angeles area modeling institutes and held onsite image development seminars for local businesses. Candice also spent almost two decades as a top rated radio air personality. She appeared in two feature films and co-hosted six local telethons for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and United Cerebral Palsy.
Candice began her real estate career at a large property management firm in Orange County, CA where she learned the fundamentals of leasing, fair housing and representation.
In the mid 1990s, as a freelance writer and editor, part of Candice's job was to transmit copy online. As the Internet began to change how business was done globally, Candice picked up skills by joining online communities on AOL, Prodigy and other BBS as she worked for large east and west coast publishing houses from her Southwest home. Because of her online skills, she became a trusted colleague and valuable team member.
When Candice obtained her Arizona real estate license in 2001, her first order of business was to differentiate herself from competitors boasting neighborhood familiarity and years of experience. The obvious choice for Candice was to take her real estate business online, where she had a leaps-and-bounds advantage. Candice's first educational goal in real estate was to earn her ePro Certification in 2002. She quickly became well known in her Bullhead City, AZ market as 'the online REALTOR', designed a one-of-a-kind top local website and powered up her real estate business, closing over 80% of her transactions online and building a strong referral and client base in her first two years.
In 2004, Candice earned her broker's license and opened Next Wave Real Estate Investments in 2005. As Designated Broker, Candice employs only ePro Certified agents. A 'boutique' office, Next Wave thrives via referral business, much drawn from the thousands of agents with whom she has developed relationships over the past six years.
Candice was instrumental in forming the Bullhead City/Mohave Valley Association of REALTORS inaugural Technology Committee, serving as Chair in 2006 and 2007. After spending two years as an association Director, Candice is sought after for participation in task forces. She created the Association's first Orientation PowerPoint presentation. Candice teaches MLS Basic, Advanced and CMA courses for the Association.
In 2006, Candice earned her Certification as an ePro Trainer, incorporating ePro Technology Workshops into New Member Orientation and MLS courses offered by the Association.
Candice has been a Client Communications instructor for the Commercial Real Estate Institute in Phoenix since January 2007.
And as a well known local broker, Candice is quick to lend a hand to members needing technology assistance.
