Colleen was there for me for every step of the selling process. She helped me make decisions and steered me in the right direction about different choices when negotiating with the buyer.
She was also on top of the paperwork all the way through the process. Of the 4 house closings I've gone through, this is was definitely the easiest as almost everything was electronically signed. I would definitely recommend Colleen!

Colleen McLean is a Real Estate Wonder. Personable, knowledgeable, experienced -- and just a pleasure to work with. She was a true partner to make sure that we represented our Home beautifully. We listened, and did what she recommended to make our house the best it could be before we listed -- and as a result, we had multiple offers within 48 hours of listing our property! Within 5 days, we were in Escrow that successfully closed almost 10% above our asking price. Throughout the process, Colleen was readily available to answer our questions and calls, to move things forward with the right vendors and inspectors, and she made the counseling process easy to understand. We would (and do!) recommend Colleen to all our friends. Highly highly highly recommend.

Colleen found me the only perfect house in Venice for me. Along the way she made the experience fun and enjoyable. I recommend her now to all my friends. She's helped three of them that I know of already. Thanks again for being the best.

Many kudos and thanks to Colleen for her professionalism and easy going personality. It was fun shopping with her and going through all the paper work involved with real estatre. But she made it all accessible and as painless as possible. We love our house and feel like we were well taken care of in terms of getting the best price, negotiating the reapairs and credits and finally helping us get moved in. We will use her again!

To Whom It May Concern: My brother and I are very appreciative of Colleen McLean and highly recommend her for a seller or buyer’sreal estate agent. We were selling our family homeduring a very difficult time.  Colleen came to our rescue. Colleen was our selling real estate agent for our home in Venice, California home. We contracted Colleen to be our selling agent during our first meeting.  We had great confidence in Colleen’s professionalism, knowledge and experience.   Since Colleen lives in the area, she knows the advantages of living in Venice.   Plus, she had done her homework and came prepared.  She reviewed with us the homes for sale in our immediate area and some adjoining.  She brought property printouts of those houses, therefore able to discuss features, house and lot size, and comparable housing selling prices.  With Colleen’s experience and knowledge in the real estate field and the value of real estate in our area, we were able to quickly agree on a selling price for our house. The real estate world was a foreign language to my brother and me.  Colleen efficiently and patiently explained the procedure of selling the house to a layman.   She became our real estate teacher.  She addressed our concerns and questions when reading the contract. Colleen’s decorating knowledge was apparent as we toured the house and yard with a buyer’s eye.  She made suggestions to us in order to prepare the house for sale.  With humor and sensitivity, she gave us a list of tasks. We discussed a tentative sale date along with an open house date.  She came to the house several times to check on our progress and to offer encouragement.  Colleen gave us ideas to make some jobseasier.  In short time, we had the house ready for sale.   The house sold very quickly.  We had an offer on the house only four days after open house, which we accepted.  Within three weeks we were in escrow and the house sold!  Saying thank you to Colleen does not express our gratitude.  We are so grateful for her knowledge and experience of the real estate field.  She is professional and caring.

To whom this may concern,

We had both the joy and the privilege of working with Colleen this past year and a half while hunting for our new home.  She was tireless and always punctual and willing to drive and spend the extra time explaining the ins and outs of home buying to our very green selves.  There were many coffee meetings at the Grind, figuring and  configuring our needs, offers, desires, and panic attacks. We were so tired of bidding wars in our area that we asked Colleen what we could do?  We are in our dream home today because we listened to her and she played a little hard ball, hard sell with the sellers to only look at our offer.  They listened and through following Colleens suggestion on what to offer, we made it in.  She also had gotten us in at the earliest time possible to see the house.  She was always ahead of the game and very patient with us!  She always with a smile on her face would say, " Oh sure, and shall we see 4 more houses?"  She would even come over at 10pm to chat or to get papers to us. I also want to add that everyone she suggested we use from the lender to the plumber have been great reliable professionals.  Happy house hunting!

have we worked together?

How was it?  Please let me know, I would love to hear from you.

Where do I begin about Colleen...When you hire a designer, a lawyer, a therapist, a realtor,
or any consultant, you want the truth and you want upfront, blunt advice.  And 90% of the time, you don't get it. With Colleen, it's different.  From the first meeting, to the 4th transaction closing docs 6 years later, honesty and true guidance shines through.  As a veteran in an industry full of egos, greed, and self-interest, I can truly say, I've learned how to read people and that recommendations go a long way...good or bad.  Colleen truly possesses the quintessential qualities, knowledge, and overall personal commitment to deliver the perfect costumer service experience and overall best "end product".  A home buyer should only remember the joy of the house they live in, not the perils that go along with the process; which happen with nearly every purchase or sale.  After recently going through three escrows with Colleen, and finally closing on "the right one", I can look back, and look at the first two and remember her saying to us "This isn't the right one for you" in certain ways for of which she straight up said "You're simply laterally moving!....why???".  A good consultant, no matter what field they are hired for, are hired to guide you in a positive direction for a field you are not an expert in.  A good realtor guides you to a sound financial investment, a "perfect home", or in rare cases, both.  Colleen can do either or both, you just have to tell her what you want...and if not, she'll most likely figure it out for you.  Unlike very few people or consultants in my life,

I would recommend Colleen any day of the week (and already have on many occasions) .  She will always have a place in our lives...and hopefully continue to eternally find us "the perfect home"!!!
