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 the 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 the 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 Realty, Candi and Greg have access to the 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 extend 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.

"Working with Greg and Candi on the sale of my home was a fantastic experience in every regard. They are a knowledgeable, efficient and dynamic “brother-sister” team who orchestrated every aspect of the sale.Their attention to detail in preparing and marketing my home to appeal to buyers both online and in person was instrumental in receiving multiple offers. At first, I was a bit hesitant to do any work to the home, but they managed the entire process and the investment was worth every penny. The final sales price well exceeded my expectations!As a team, Greg and Candi work seamlessly together and I always felt well informed throughout the process. Their in-depth knowledge of the local market and agent community is excellent and their negotiation skills outstanding. I could not have been any happier with the process or results.I would whole heartedly refer them to anyone looking to sell or buy a home on the Peninsula!." - Gladys Orozco

I would highly recommend them for all your real estate needs (if I move back to the Peninsula I will definitely use them for my purchase also).

"Greg & Candi are an amazing brother-sister realtor team, who helped us buy our first property (at a great price!). We met them by happenstance (in hindsight, we're so lucky!), and after a couple of meetings, we knew they were the most knowledgeable, committed and genuinely nice realtor team. Searching on MLS, it was also clear to us that they are a prolific buying & selling team who have built up a great clientele (& hence referral pipeline). We picked them vs. a couple of other realtors who we had talked to - and boy, did we make the right choice! Knowledgeable: Both Greg & Candi know the Peninsula incredibly well, having grown up here. They helped us differentiate neighborhoods, navigate disclosures/CCRs etc., suggested great service professionals (handymen, gardeners etc.). Committed: From day one, Greg & Candi demonstrated that they are invested in us. Starting from a personalized presentation, to staying up late to file offers, to being a really good strategist during negotiations, and most importantly being really honest with us. Genuinely nice: At every step, Greg & Candi were patient with us, helpful at all times and they also made sure we settled in smoothly after we closed. We definitely know that we'll be recommending them to all our friends who are looking to buy or sell in the Peninsula." - Abhilash Ravishankar
"Greg is truly at the top of his field, Speaking from experience, I've bought and homes in many states and Greg is one of the best real estate professionals I've ever worked with. He was patient and thorough when helping me search for a home on the peninsula and was able to understand what was important to me. When it came time to make an offer, Greg again patiently walked me through the idiosyncrasies of the bay area. When it came time to sell, there was no question who I would ask for help. Greg and his team did a fantastic job with staging and prepping the home. They made it look so nice that we seriously considered moving back in! Greg was again patient and super helpful, answering questions and being truthful, while dealing with the offer process. If I need real estate help in the bay area, I wouldn't go to anyone else." - Andy Johnson
"We have known and worked with Greg for a couple of years now on both the home buying and selling sides. From the beginning, we liked Greg because he was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, responsive, patient and most of all, trustworthy. He guided us through bidding on multiple homes and was always quick to respond to our emails and phone calls and always had incredible patience through the whole process. When it came time to sell, we knew we were in great hands with Greg. He knows the market so well and has a wonderful team including an outstanding stager, landscaper, painter, handy man and more. He knew the exact right time to list it to get us top dollar for our home and he delivered. 12 offers later and we couldn't be more ecstatic! In addition to the wonderful experiences we've personally had working with Greg, the real estate community feels the same way about him. Whenever we told anyone who our agent was, if they knew him, they raved about him and consistently told us we were in great hands. If that doesn't say it all, I don't know what does! Thank you Greg for making this crazy market so easy to navigate with you by our side!! You are the best!" - Angela & Mark Broxterman
"Our home-selling experience with Greg and his wife Julie (who served as a project manager in preparing our for sale and staging) was exceptional. We'd been referred to Greg by two other people we knew, and ultimately chose to work with him after vetting several other recommended realtors. Greg is honest, forthright, skilled, knowledgeable, consultative, assertive when needed, and highly trustworthy, always putting your needs and interests first. We also loved working with Julie, who spent many hours serving as a proactive go-between among us, vendors, and a reliable group of contractors they often work with (paint, flooring, landscaping, handyman, design & staging, etc.). We look forward to continuing to work with Greg when we buy our next home" - Art Wolf & Nancy Evans
