I first contacted Colleen after a few negative experiences with other realtors in the Central Florida area. Of specific note was the prior realtor’s inability to communicate effectively. I contacted Colleen (coincidentally, based on her Zillow rating) and she responded within 12 hours.
I explained my family’s situation, wants, and needs and timeline for moving. Colleen provided the information (listings, areas to live, etc.) nearly instantaneously (I’m exaggerating but she was fast)!
Over the following few months we narrowed the search to one home which the owner was not willing to negotiate and we pulled the plug.
However, Colleen showed us a few new home areas in Clermont and we ‘stumbled’ upon the one we ultimately bought in.
During the ‘buying’ process Colleen was ALWAYS there and offered advice. She also stopped the process when she felt my wife was becoming frustrated with a particular salesperson. I have great respect for that. Colleen then got everyone back on track and it was essentially smooth sailing after that.
We closed on our home about five months after the initial sale which apparently is a good timeframe for a new home build.
I must say that Colleen guided us to an area of Florida that I never really had considered because it’s in the middle of the state (and I’ve been on or around the beach all my life). I have never been happier in my 47 years and Colleen had a considerable part in making that happen.
I hope to never need to buy another home but if I do…she’s the only one I want to work with.
