About Me

Originally from San Jose, CA. I graduated from San Jose State University with a Bachelors Degree in Advertising/Marketing.  I worked in the advertising industry for over 17 years and eventually became Associate Publisher of a regional magazine based out of San Francisco. My husband, Jeff and I were looking for a lifestyle change and moved to a small town called Burney located in Northern California  (lived there only one year) which quickly led us to the beautiful town of Auburn where we currently and happily live.

We picked Auburn because both of us enjoy a country setting and outdoor activities but with modern conveniences. We love getting involved in the community and for many years have participated in the Festival of Lights Parade in Downtown Auburn. I also serve on the board for the Ashley Memorial Dog Park in Auburn.  We enjoy dog walking for the Placer Animal Shelter and have fostered puppies for a local animal rescue organization.

A few years ago we bought 5 acres and built our dream home. Together we learned so much about construction and my husband in particular had a very hands-on approach. I learned so much from the homeowner’s perspective which I love to share when clients are thinking about purchasing land and building.

Since then, we have put in a family orchard, flower and vegetable beds and practice organic gardening. We expanded from there and now raise chickens and even have a couple vermiculture compost piles.  I enjoy cooking, jet skiing, mountain biking, hiking, camping, shopping, traveling and wine tasting.

I help my clients buy and sell homes throughout the entire Placer, El Dorado, Sacramento, and Nevada Counties including: Auburn, Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Meadow Vista, Granite Bay and Grass Valley.  Experienced in luxury properties, lake front homes, and golf course properties.

It doesn't cost you anything to have a Realtor's knowledge and experience when buying a new house. We saved thousands of dollars on upgrades and closing costs. Candace is professional and extremely motivated to provide the answers and assistance required in today's fast moving market.

We just wanted to write you to say that we cannot thank you enough for all you have done for us this last year. We came to you with the goal of purchasing and upgrading to a newer home, without having to make it contingent on the sale of our current home. At the time, Jessica and I were planning our wedding. Quite a stressful task to say the least! In a matter of 4 months we succeeded by upgrading to a beautiful new home in a wonderful neighborhood, and completed the sale of our previous home for a price we were very happy with. All through the process you provided service that we previously believed was unheard of these days. We will always remember the way you contributed to our lives and will continue to refer your services with confidence to anyone we know planning a home purchase or sale. Good luck and thanks again, John and Jessica Bootz

My wife and I recently re-located from the Bay Area up to the small town of Cool, CA with the help of Candace Morton. We had an idea of what we were looking for but she made it all happen for us. From laying down our priorities to searching for a home to the final purchase, her expertise in her field made our transition as seem less and enjoyable as possible. Her ability to visualize what we were after was impressive and her cunning negotiation ensured us a sound investment. She was a pleasure to work with in all aspects of the journey and she even had a nice gift waiting at our door on move in day. Nobody I’ve ever worked with has ever taken the initiative that she took and I wouldn’t hesitate to do business with Candace Morton and Lyon Real Estate in the future. Matt & Michelle Stoffregen
