Candice Employee — Seniors Real Estate in Gold Coast, QLD

Candice I Guillaumier

Financial Coach

Peter and Janie have had an interest in the real estate industry for many years and harbour a passion for innovation when defining the mature age real estate experience.  Peter has teamed with his wife Janie to offer a quality, inclusive and stress-free service that will ultimately smooth the challenges when transitioning from either full or semi employment to full retirement and the downsizing and lifestyle challenges that comes with it.  In support, Candice their daughter provides unbiased financial coaching and advise, a must before starting this paradigm shift in life.

Seniors Real Estate is the redefined real estate product developed by Peter and Janie having witnessed themselves the uncomfortable and sometimes ill-informed decisions their own parents and relations have made in the past when transitioning. They have also spent much time counselling their own off spring whilst they too considered their first purchases on the property ladder.

Peter has spent time as a Prestige Property Specialist with one of the Gold Coasts leading and top end real estate agencies before embracing his passion for better all-inclusive buying, selling and downsizing options for mature age and Veteran clients.

Both Peter and Janie bring commensurate age experience and complimentary skill sets to the business. Peter’s experiences garnered as a Veteran having served in both the British and Australian Army as a member of Commando Forces and eventually Army Aviation as a pilot and project manager.  Janie has been a full-time teacher, mother, wellbeing councillor and yoga instructor, whilst Candice is a mother and brings clarity and common sense to family finances.  Combined, they bring advocacy, reliability, integrity, exemplary communications, and patience to the table.  Furthermore, they embrace traditional values and a desire to fully understand the needs and wants of their clients.
