Kandy Magnotti knows a thing or two about change. She’s undergone a lot of it, and having a first-hand understanding of how life can change, oftentimes unexpectedly, is one of the reasons why she was extremely successful in her prior career as a therapist/grief counselor and currently as a full-time Realtor©. After working for 20 years in the healthcare industry, Kandy experienced a drastic change when she left her 10-year career as a clinically trained therapist and simultaneously went through a divorce after nearly 20 years of marriage. Today she describes all of it as a blessing in disguise. Coupled with a fierce work ethic and a first-class aptitude for attention to detail, she knows precisely how to help clients going through life transitions big or small with an empathy, kindness, and superior level of integrity that truly sets her apart.
Today, Kandy runs FL Suncoast Real Estate & Relocation Consulting with the boutique firm, Preferred SHORE, as her broker, serving the the coastal communities of Florida, including Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg, Sarasota down to Naples on the west coast to Delray Beach, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale down to Miami on the east coast in addition to all coastal areas in the Sunshine State. Kandy specializes in high-end, luxury properties with a specific focus on working with people looking to relocate to Florida. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, Kandy had a gut instinct that Florida was primed to be a relocation destination in high demand, which inspired her to transition into real estate full time. Her compassionate guidance combined with a New York bred grit and determination enables Kandy to consistently get her clients into the dwelling or investment property they desire. Having a prior sales background with Pfizer helps her effectively negotiate with precision. She helps people going through life transitions turn them into a fresh start. “I see real estate as so much more than a transaction,” she says. “It’s actually a significant financial and life transition that I am facilitating.”
Kandy doesn’t just credit her careers with shaping her success, but her background as well. Born in Panama, she saw firsthand the work ethic that helped her family achieve their own American Dream. Additionally, having spent time in Europe, China, Iceland, Canada, Latin America, and the Caribbean, she’s well-traveled, which gives her a unique ability to relate to people of all backgrounds. While she’s deeply enjoying real estate and the Florida lifestyle, she’ll forever be most proud of her accomplishments as a mom to her twin daughters and the opportunity to raise them in an environment that allows them to thrive all year round. For Kandy, the most rewarding part of her work is being able to make a positive impact on someone’s life, whether that’s getting them through a tough time, or getting them into a new home—and now as a full-time Realtor© that’s often both at the same time. As she tells her clients: “If you can dream it, I’ll help you achieve it.”
