Candace Carlisle


Candace Carlisle began her undergraduate years at the University of Texas as Dallas in 2001 and graduated with a bachelor of business administration degree in 2003. Taking a break between her undergraduate and graduate schooling, she plunged into the UNT journalism program to get her master’s degree in 2006.

After graduating from the Mayborn in 2008, she went to work as a reporter for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, where she covered breaking crime news in Tarrant County. Not long after that, she moved to the Denton Record-Chronicle, where she covered breaking news, but also wrote articles on higher education and business, often covering UNT and TWU.

After two years at the Record-Chronicle, Carlisle moved on to the Dallas Business Journal. She began as a staff writer, focusing on both commercial and residential real estate coverage in the DFW area. Occasionally, she would cover a sports story as it related to facilities and stadiums.

Carlisle is now a senior reporter at the Journal and is still focused on DFW real estate. From stories on grocery store construction to politically charged reasoning for the lack of Trump Hotels in Dallas, Carlisle handles it all.
