Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 in Groveland, FL.
She did exactly what we wanted and was there for us for every question. She was knowledgable, patience, and caring. I now have a realtor for life and would recommend her to anyone.

Bought a home in 2014.
What a great experience! Colleen took us around, day after day to find us the perfect house. Always answered mail/text/phone promtly and had an angel's patience with our three kids (4, 2 and 8 months).

Colleen was never pushy, I never felt like she was working on commission since she never pushed for any more expensive houses, never complained when we wanted to look at foreclosed homes, etc.

We ended up building a house with a builder, instead, and Colleen was there throughout. Thank you so much!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Clermont, FL.
It was a pleasure working with Colleen on the sale of my Father-in-Law's home. Selling a home long distance isn't easy, but Colleen's efforts made the entire process run smoothly. She answered my calls and emails promptly, and kept me informed of feedback from showings. I especially appreciated her patience and positive energy. The best testament to her expertise is that the home sold for the appraised value within a month after it was listed. I would recommend Colleen to anyone looking for a realtor in the Clermont area.

It was an absolute pleasure to have Colleen as my buyer's agent. She is a charming lady who will bend over backwards to please her client, all the time, helping you to stay focused on your goal. Moving is such a stressful time in one's life, but having a "helper" like Colleen certainly made my home search easier and even fun filled as I enjoyed her sense of humor along the search. I can paint you a picture of Colleen with these words: delightful, focused, professional, ethical, and very upbeat. I would be remiss if I did not mention her lovely assistant Cary who is extremely efficient and helpful as well. I am so grateful that I found them in my quest to start a new chapter in my life.

Sold a home in 2014.
Extremely hard working! Knows the Clermont area well, however, does not give a lot of guidance on price or potential buyers offers. Overall, very responsive in communication skills.

Well, I definitely did work diligently on trying to get the house sold at a price where the Sellers did not have to bring money to the closing. The Sellers basically broke even on the sale. I even showed the house to other Realtors' buyers so no showing would be missed. All offers were shown to the Seller and unfortunately 2 executed contracts fell through because of the buyer's financing. The guidance I give to my Sellers on pricing is showing them the facts on the Market Value, I am the messenger that shows the facts.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Minneola, FL.
My husband and I were recommended to Colleen to assist us with buying our first home. I couldnt believe how easy she made everything! Any question we had, even if it were nine o'clock at night, she answered promptly and would walk us right through the paperwork. She showed us all of the homes we had asked to see and really worked around our schedules and made us feel like we were her most important clients. Colleen is so cheerful, helpful, and knowledgeable; we couldn't have been luckier in our real estate agent and the home she helped us get! If we have any future home buying endeavors, we will be calling Colleen straight away. In the meantime we're passing her info to any friends looking to buy!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Orlando, FL.
I found Coleen through zillow web site...that day was my lucky day....)))she is extremely professional ,helpful and responsive ...I'm a difficult customer,it took me a year and a half to finally find the home that I like ,and during all this time she was helping me with no hesitation.we saw maybe 1500 homes together...)))Coleen never pressured me into buying something I wasn't comfortable with.she will go that extra mile to make the client happy,although its not always in her best interest...i could call her at 10pm on Saturday and she would pull all the info I needed on the house.Coleen is very knowledgeable and has a good team of experts who she calls if she isn't sure about something....And...besides all of these qualities she's a very nice person! I will definitely use her in the future ! As a matter of fact I recommended her to a couple of my friends and they gave me pretty much the same feedback! Coleen ,you are the best !thanks for all you do! Alex.

Thank you for your kind remarks. It was my pleasure to help you find that right place to make into your home. Yes, it did take awhile, but at the end it was all worth it. I am going to miss not showing you houses. I think we should now take the next step and buy an investment property :)) When you're ready to make that step, I'll be ready to help you. Enjoy fixing up your new house, see you soon!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Minneola, FL.
I relocated for a new job while my husband and daughter stayed at the old home. The email notification system Colleen uses was wonderful because my husband and I recived daily alerts, and we were able to communicate and save our notes on each home despite being far away from each other. During the 4th of July weekend she showed us multiple houses throughout Lake county and shared information regarding local parks and shopping areas. We kept adding homes to the must see list and Colleen was very accommodating despite the long hours. She also responds quickly to texts, emails and voice mails. Despite submitting an as is contract, Colleen negotiated on our behalf and the sellers repaired several issues identified on the home inspection.

I smile when I think of this customer, she came off as a tuff cookie, she had high expectations and wanted to make sure I was ready to meet them or else she would find someone else. This customer was not only organized but was great in being able to express exactly what she wanted for her family, thus making my job in helping her find that right house very easy. It was my pleasure to work with such an astute business women.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Ocoee, FL.
We purchased a home from out of state with Colleens help. She always answered the phone and was very prompt at getting requested information back to us. I felt that she cared about my family's best interests and wanted to make sure that we were comfortable with every decision along the way. It was a pleasure working with her. I highly recommend her and her team.

I am so happy we were able to get you the house that you wanted. It took some time negotiating, but Yes it ended up working out. I hope the family is enjoying being back in FL and partying in that beautiful pool.
