A full-blooded Italian from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Candida says that the warm southern hospitality is real! She grew up watching her father and brothers flip rental properties with her in charge of painting and spackling. It was also normal for you to see Candida tossing pizza dough, running a register or hustling in the back at her family-owned franchises (Dicarlo’s Pizza in West Virginia; Christopher’s Pizza in Jeannette, Pennsylvania; Italian Specialty Products in Latrobe, Pennsylvania). During her summer months she spent time visiting her mother in Cape Coral, Florida learning to cook authentic Italian foods. Her parents, Vincenza and Vincenzo, wanted all their children to have strong work ethics, and Candida worked two jobs in high school and three jobs in college to pay for her schooling. She studied vocal performance at Carnegie Mellon University then music business at Tennessee State University.
When she’s not hunting fabulous properties, she enjoys running, shopping, singing and cooking – just not all at the same time! Candida currently lives in a condo in downtown Nashville with her boxer, Harper. She loves downtown because of the accessibility, conveniences and maintenance-free lifestyle it has to offer.
With ten years in luxury sales, Candida is anything but shy of finding her client family the best of the best. Candida makes sure her clients are comfortable throughout the whole process in finding their luxury. She has an appreciation for all lifestyles with the understanding of budget and knows how to instill richness into even the humblest of abodes. She recently found 300 renters their home this past year at Nashville's tallest residential skyscraper, 505. Candida loves when people call her “The Nashville Matchmaker” because she believes finding a dream home is like finding that perfect relationship. With Candida's relentless go-getter attitude and positive mindset, she finds all her clients the perfect match!
