Meet Leighton

Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker | Manhattan, Hamptons

Leighton Candler represents the most unique and spectacular real estate in New York City. A seasoned industry veteran and top Manhattan broker for more than twenty years, both her clientele and her peers know her as an avid real estate connoisseur with more inside knowledge of the industry, the market and the history of New York than anyone else in the business. Little wonder that she enjoys the respect of her colleagues, to say nothing of a fiercely loyal clientele within the city's Who's Who.

With wide-reaching access and intimate insight into Manhattan's grandest high-end properties, Leighton serves the most discerning buyers and sellers with the utmost care, courtesy and confidentiality. She strives to assess her customer's specific needs and personality, and then zeroes in on the right neighborhood, building, and apartment to fulfill their requirements. Known for her integrity and candor, Leighton will not encourage deals until convinced that the fit is right for her client. She thrives upon the challenge of finding each customer their ideal home, scouring the island for her diverse patrons.

Originally from Atlanta, Leighton first came to New York more than two decades ago to attend Parsons School of Design, after which she spent three years in Paris directing a U.S.-based interior design firm and perfecting her French. Upon her return to Manhattan she worked as Vice President and Head Designer for the prominent firm of Elizabeth Draper, Inc., but soon started her own interior design company. Her keen creative energy and business acumen made for a supremely successful transition into real estate. After a decade as a top broker at Brown Harris Stevens, Leighton joined The Corcoran Group in 2001. She considers herself one of New York's biggest enthusiasts and as such involves herself in a variety of community-related volunteer activities.
