I had read recommendations for Coleen DeGroff on Facebook, and I decided if everything that was said was true, this was the Realtor I wanted to work with. I sent her a contact email and got a very prompt reply. Once we met and she got a sense of what I was looking for, she sent me a list of homes that met my criteria. After narrowing down the list, she took me around to show me the properties until I found the one that suited my needs. The condo was a short sale, but Coleen assured me she would be with me every step of the way, and that she would stay on top of things. She promised and she delivered!
Any time there was any paperwork involved, she contacted me immediately to meet with her to sign things, and was willing to drive to whatever location was most convenient for me, even if she had travel a long distance. She even recommended reputable home inspectors and homeowners insurance agents.
She really worked hard for me as a buyer, and I had 100% trust in her the entire time. Coleen is a “real” person who has experienced the highs and lows of homebuying, and her personal experiences allow her to understand what the buyer is going through and what his needs are.
As many have mentioned, Coleen’s sense of humor is priceless. I had so much fun working with her, but at the same time, I knew she was serious about the business of real estate, as she was treating it like a real business getting a couple of employees and managing them with pay stub online.
If you want someone who will go above and beyond to help you buy or sell a home, Coleen is the person to call on.
