Candi Athens is a Bay Area native with broad and extensive knowledge of the mid-Peninsula real estate market. Having grown up in both San Mateo and Foster City and later moving to raise her family in Atherton, she currently lives in Redwood City with her husband. Candi is fully engaged with the community and cognizant of the rich and charming characteristics that each town and neighborhood in the mid-Peninsula has to offer.
Clients who choose to work with Candi receive the advantage of her partnership with her brother, Greg Celotti, a top producing (1%) agent since 2002. Candi and Greg’s partnership ensures that each client receives outstanding representation, crucial in-depth local market knowledge and a truly impressive real estate experience.
Here are their objectives when working with clients:
As buyer’s agents, Candi and Greg are diligent in communicating to their clients what’s available both on and off market. The “Brother-Sister Team” ensures that clients are well-informed on the intricacies of each prospective home and the surrounding area, including insight into the public and private school systems, downtown area, and parks and recreational facilities. When it comes time to make an offer, the pair are able to negotiate the best price and terms for their buyers due to their respected reputation and their robust, shared market insight.
Conversely, as listing agents preparing the home for market, Candi and Greg garner the highest possible price by working with vendors to improve what’s necessary, not what’s optional. As a result, clients never worry about paying for updates and repairs which do not increase the overall value of their home. Moreover, as agents of Compass Realty, Candi and Greg have access to the Compass Concierge program which covers all the upfront costs, collecting payment for the services rendered at the time of the property’s closing.
Altogether, Candi and Greg have raised six children and have owned several properties in the Bay Area. Their knowledge and expertise of the real-estate market extends far beyond the industry standard, and their commitment to servicing their clients’ needs is a collaborated team effort resulting in over 350+ real estate transactions in the mid-Peninsula.
