Candy Gil is one of Davidson Realty’s most dedicated agents. As a result of her hard work, Candy is a frequent recipient of Davidson accolades including top sales, top lister and top producer.  

She loves working with buyers and sellers of all kinds and finds first-time home buyers and downsizing retirees to be especially enjoyable. For Candy, marketing the benefits of living in Northeast Florida is easy thanks to our great weather, plenty of things to do and affordable cost of living. 

Ensuring the best possible outcome for her customers is Candy’s #1 priority. She utilizes clear, ongoing communication to cultivate great relationships with customers as well as business partners and Davidson teammates.  

Candy originates from Oriente, Cuba, a small town on the east side of the island nation. She came to the U.S. as a child, grew up in Miami and married Ed Gil, who is also part of the Davidson Companies. The Gils lived in Atlanta before settling in Jacksonville in 1982. Candy worked as a Spanish teacher and later a Spanish/English interpreter. 

In 2013, Candy followed her lifelong passion for helping people and earned her real estate license. She joined the team at Davidson Realty that same year. 

In her free time, Candy enjoys playing golf, cooking, walking and playing Mahjong with friends. Candy and Ed also enjoy spending time with their family. Their daughter and son-in-law gave them their first grandson, and their son and daughter-in-law are expecting their first baby in August 2019. The Gils live in Ponte Vedra Beach. 

She sponsors a yearly donation drive for Foster Closet and is a supporter of children’s cardiovascular charity Patrons of the Hearts as well as St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. 

Candy continually proves to be one of Davidson’s most valuable agents. In addition, thanks to her background as an interpreter and teacher, Candy is a superb choice for Spanish and English-speaking clients alike.

Candy is no ordinary agent, my wife and I had multiple agents help before we found her. She goes above and beyond the call of duty. She has assisted us in multiple transactions and helped friends and family.

My husband and I were fortunate to work with Candy. She made buying our dream home a reality. Candy was knowledgeable, quick to respond, (even on a Sunday evening), extremely patient with us, and guided us through every step. Her top-notch negotiation skill-set saved us money and her upbeat and fun personality made the process of buying a home a pleasure. Highly recommend!

I received your letter and would like to tell you that although selling my mom’s home was emotionally difficult if it were not for my agent Candy Gil I’m not sure I could have made it through. She was very professional and very knowledgeable. Actually, the buyer’s agent got so many things mixed up and wrong I was about to end the sale because of her. But Candy persevered and kept everything on track. I am going to try and post this on google, but in case I have operator error I wanted to make sure you know as her manager. Thank you very much.

We can not say enough about how conscientious and professional Candy has been. We have been trying to purchase an inexpensive house in the St. Augustine area to fix up and stay in when we visit my son. Candy has been great about keeping us up to date and she continues to watch what happens after our offer is not accepted so if a deal falls through she has a chance to save our deal. If we have a question, or get nervous about something, she takes the time to explain what she thinks would work. Even though our acquisitions would be very little commission for her, she does such an amazing job and is always so kind. I would highly recommend this caring professional.

My wife and I moved from the Tampa area to St. John’s this past June and were in the market for a new construction home. Candy Gil was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and attentive to our home buying needs. Recommendation to future new construction buyers.......ALWAYS bring your own real estate representative with you when visiting a new construction model home center. The sales reps for these builders often times don’t have your best real estate interests at heart. We know from experience and we’re glad Candy was in our corner throughout the buying and closing process.

My husband and I have moved many times over the years, and we know that choosing the right realtor is a huge factor in marketing and selling our home. We came to work with Candy Gil through a friend that had highly recommended her. Candy was all that our friend promised....and more! I have major medical issues, and my husband works full time. That means that moving is a very stressful time in our home. Candy handled EVERY detail for us, and kept us informed constantly (which has been an issue with other realtors in the past). Our home sold quickly, and the closing went effortlessly due to Candy's diligent efforts. Believe me, you'll be really glad you chose to work with Candy Gil.

We just want to let you know that Candy Gil was the best realtor we’ve ever had all through the years we’d built & bought houses: 3 in NJ, 1 in NC, 2 in Jacksonville, & the 3rd & last one here in Jacksonville, FL was with Candy! Candy stood out because she has this very pleasant personality, very knowledgeable, & prompt & very patient in answering our questions & concerns! When we became very frustrated with the sales agent & the lenders, she was there to calm us down & straight-end the matters out! We had so much trust in Candy that after the initial paperwork was all done,  that was around July 2018, we went home to NC & never traveled back to Jacksonville until the final walk through last January, as she updated us periodically on the progress of the construction. We are very pleased & thankful to Candy. She treated us not just as clients, but also like we were her friends. We will definitely recommend her to family & friends here in Jacksonville! On a scale of 1-10, we’re giving Candy a BIG 10!!

Candy worked with my husband and I through 4 years of looking for rentals and recently a second home purchase in the St Augustine area. She is extremely hard working. Her many years of living in this area give her a unique knowledge and perspective that was invaluable to us. Candy is responsive at all times, bends over backward to help you and helps the purchase process go smoothly. She makes you feel more like an old friend rather than just another real estate customer. Thank you Candy for everything!

Candy is absolutely the best realtor - from a buyers, renters, AND sellers perspective (and my husband and I have been all three)! Even though we had never used her before, she helped my husband and I find a condo to rent when we first moved to the area. We had such a great experience with her for something that was likely so trivial for her (but meant the world to us), that we decided to use her again 2 years later when we were ready to buy a home. My husband had some unrealistic expectations and she very professionally brought him around to a more appropriate budget for what we were looking for - which turned out to be such a great investment for us! We just sold that home, and she also assisted us in finding our new home - new construction. But not after showing us so many other homes. We determined that the new construction was our best option but truly Candy was always so on the same page as my husband and I. The best part is, she has become a lovely friend of ours through the years as well. I have no question that for as long as Candy is a realtor, she will be our realtor. And hands down would recommend her to anyone needing to buy, sell, or rent in the Jacksonville Metro Area.

Candy found us the exact house we were looking for. Helped us through the closing, saving us lots of money by making sure the seller (a large Florida builder) kept all their promises, and she got them to throw in a lot of added extras. Candy was always available and kept in touch with us and the seller's agent. The closing went as planned and only took about 15 minutes. She also knows the the area (St Augustine/Jacksonville) and gave us the names of some good movers and storage facilities. To sum it up, she was perfect for us.
