Agents: Candace Young

I was born and raised right here in Longview, Texas, attending Pine Tree, then Kilgore College and ultimately the University of Texas at Tyler where I studied Journalism and Public Relations. Shortly after that, I decided I wanted to be a real estate agent … but isn’t it funny how God sometimes has other plans for us? The next 12 years were spent as a full-time stay-at-home mom, raising a family while running a small medical transcription business. At the beginning of 2018, I decided it was time to come back to real estate and I’m excited to see how God uses me on this next adventure!

I love traveling and sharing this great country we live in with my kids. My husband and I have promised to take them to all 50 states before they’re 18 and we are halfway there! I also adore camping, reading, fishing, gardening, shelling peas, and watching my kids play in their favorite sports. I’ve been married for 18 years to the sweetest man around and we live on a 5 acre mini-farm in Diana with a big garden, chickens, dogs, and cats. I am a life-long member of Mobberly Baptist Church where I have taught various aged kids in Sunday School and Bible Drill.

During a recent sermon at church, our pastor asked the questions, “What is in your heart and what are you passionate about?” I immediately answered those questions in my head with “my husband, my kids, my faith” but I dug a little deeper and recognized that I had a passion for helping people. I hope to put that passion to work for YOU in helping you find the home of your dreams!
