Roland Candace & Alex

Partners in life and in business, Roland Wilhelm and Candace Gunther are a leading force in the marketing and sales of residential properties throughout the greater San Gabriel Valley. The pair’s proven commitment to their clients has led them to establish a strong, referral-based business, one in which diplomacy, patience, and compassion are among the traits for which they are repeatedly praised.

With over 30 years as a licensed Realtor, Roland brings a sterling reputation to the team as a top seller’s and buyer’s agent in the area, a territory that includes Pasadena, Altadena, San Marino, La Cañada, Monrovia, and Glendale. Combining a proftable eye for art and antiques with a professional background in statistics and IT systems design for several large commercial real estate frms, Candace  easily switches between the analytical and aesthetic to deliver results for her clients. Moreover, team member Alex Ford adds his intelligent wit and photographic memory to provide a fresh approach to the marketing strategies for each property.

Beyond the hours spent diligently serving their clients, Roland and Candace are involved in frequent motorcycle charity rides that allow them to give purpose to one of their shared passions. Roland has raised money by riding across the country (Pacifc coast to Atlantic coast) in under 48 hours, riding from Mexico to Canada in under 24 hours, and riding from Mexico to the Arctic Ocean on Alaska’s
northern border. Additionally, the duo has taken it upon themselves to invite friends and clients to join them in preparing dinners at the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House for families whose children are undergoing medical treatment at nearby hospitals.

As long-time residents in the Pasadena area, Roland and Candace are forever grateful for the opportunity to make a living doing what they love in a neighborhood that they both cherish. The vast network of vendors that they have formed relationships with—inspectors, plumbers, roofers, electricians, lenders, etc.—proves an invaluable resource not only during the lifecycle of a real estate transaction but well after the ink is dry. No matter who a person is or where they originate from, Roland and Candace believe that the ingredients involved in fnding one’s “dream home” are the same for everyone—an awareness born from professional and personal experience that is central to their life’s work.
