“I want to develop a practice recognized for its high level of commitment and service to its clients,” says Richard Candia. “A practice that delivers not just a single purchase or sale, but that stands ready to serve as a solution for any real estate needs the client may have in the future, as well.”
Rich’s past career experience spans politics, higher education, and policy, and helped hone a unique combination of skills. These include the ability to analyze, and communicate information; to identify opportunities for his buyers and sellers through effective networking; and to link what might appear to be unrelated bits of information into powerful, productive tools for the benefit of his clients.
“My primary service is information,” says Rich, “full, tailored, continuous information.” Rather than a barrage of possible listings, his buyers instead receive a customized list of properties that meet their specific wants and needs. Everything is communicated in context, with information on the various aspects of the market tailored to their individual interests. “That ensures that my sellers have a clear vision of what I intend to accomplish for them,” Rich says. A first generation American born in Jacksonville, Florida, to Bolivian parents, Rich grew up in a military family, speaks English and Spanish and earned his MBA from Florida International University.
Richard is also extremely active in his community and in support of his industry. He is a member of the Miami Association of Realtors Commercial Board; serves on the State Board at the Florida Realtors Association; he is a member of the Advisory Council for the Economic Development Council of South Dade; and a member of the Board of Directors of the South Dade Chamber of Commerce.
Richard is married with two grown children. He is very active in his parish, enjoys good wine and traveling with his lovely wife.
