As I began the process of buying my first home I was anxious, nervous and ignorant to the process. Audra walked me through and eased me into each step alleviating my anxiety. She was honest, hard working and most of all patient. As I closed on my first house(on my birthday!) I bought a house that I believe was made for my family and in our ideal locale. She convinced me to write an offer on the house even though a contract was pending which placed us next in line to place an offer. She also stopped us from sacrificing location that would be unsafe for our children. Words can not express how professional and honest Audra is. Everyone should have the experience I had when buying and selling a home. Not only do I have the home of our dreams it came without any horror stories that so many endure. She is really is top notch!!!!

Audra helped me buy my current home plus other residential and commercial properties. She is a wise negotiator and not pushy with her clients at all. When she recommends to move forward with a deal is because she honestly believes it is the best option. I have recommended her in the past to friends and business partners who all got to love working with her.
She helped me rent my place on the beach 2 years ago and now we are searching for a condo on brickell. Top qualities: FAST, honest, genuine, very knowledgeable of best locations, buildings. Definitely recommend!

Audra knows how to find you a great property at a great price. she is very easy to work with and she is very sharp. You will be impressed by her honesty and integrity. She has helped me buy and sell several properties. I wouldn't use anyone else.
Audra was so helpful to me in selling my condo. She showed me inexpensive ways to make my home show better and be more appealing to buyers. She recommended service people who were efficient and well priced. Audra was on time and professional for all showings. She gave thorough answers to my questions (which were many) and I felt she really was looking out for my best interest. We had a contract in less than a month and the whole closing process went very smoothly. I would not hesitate to recommend Audra to anyone! She's great!
I called Ms. McCollum after seeing her listed as a buyer's agent on this site (Zillow.com). I was calling to set up showings for 4 similar condos for sale within 2 blocks of each other in Coconut Grove, FL. After discovering that I was also talking to other real estate agents, she launched into a lecture about how 'unwise' it was to work with more than one agent, and how I probably did not know 'how things worked'. I immediately offered to call someone else if she felt I was wasting her time. She said she didn't mean that exactly, and that she would try to set up showings for me and get back to me asap. (I had told her at the beginning of the conversation I had a preference for showings within the next three days.) I have not heard back from her nor, at this point, am I interested.
- How does one find the agent one prefers to work with, except by setting up showings with each one?
- I have bought and sold property quite a few times over the last 20 years. Ms. McCollum certainly seemed to make a wide range of inaccurate assumptions about me in the brief span of our phone call.
- The reason that I wanted to arrange showings within a certain window was so that a friend whose opinion I respect on real estate matters could accompany me. I made the unfortunate decision to extend Ms. McCollum the courtesy of waiting to hear back from her before trying to arrange showings through anyone else. Now I doubt that we will be able to see the properties within the necessary time frame.
I strongly recommend seeking someone else to work with.
Response from Audra on 05/09/2011
Thanks for the review. I'm sorry you were disappointed by my service. I try to always give 100% to my customers. This review is not an accurate representation of our conversation at all. I never 'lectured' you about other Realtors or told you that was unwise-to the contrary. I explained I was completely booked for the weekend-you never mentioned urgency due to a friend in town. You have reviewed me in areas of which you have no personal knowledge of my capabilities. Unwarranted review.

I consider myself very fortunate to have found Audra to help me in the search for a condo on Miami Beach/North Bay Village. There was never a doubt that she was representing me - she is very knowledgeable of the area, meetings and touring of the properties always ran very smoothly and timely, she always listened to my wants and answered my questions promptly. I would highly recommend Audra to anyone looking for property. She made the whole process a good experience.

We worked with Audra to find a rental home, then buy a home and then to sell a home. Audra is extremely patient and willing to work with a person until they find the perfect property--we took a long time to find our purchased home. When we needed to sell it, Audra took special care to make the place look nice, listed it beautifully and in the end, sold it in one day!! She's a wonderful agent!
