“Over the course of two years I worked with Colleen to find the right house for me. I began the search more to learn about possibilities than to buy a place because I had time before moving to Portland. Colleen took me seriously even though I wasn’t ready to buy a place. She took me to several places to learn my tastes and inclinations and then let me know when something came on the market that might fit my wants and needs. Always ready to answer my many questions, but reticent to give advice, Colleen was a great realtor for me. I did not want to work with an aggressive, hard-selling realtor. I also appreciated her knowledge and acquaintance with Portland’s neighborhoods. She always had her ear to the ground for properties about to come on the market, and that’s how I was able to buy my home in the neighborhood I wanted. I couldn’t recommend Colleen more highly.”
“We rarely write reviews but feel compelled to write about our extremely positive experience working with Colleen Bedard as our real estate agent. Colleen is incredibly hard-working, knowledgeable, patient and honest. Though we were not sure where we wanted to live, or what we could afford, Colleen was always there for us and always gave us the sense that it was more important that she help us find the ‘right fit’ for us than it was for her to make a sale. Finally, with her help, we were able to find the right condo and, when we did, it really seemed that Colleen was almost as excited as we were! We cannot emphasize enough how honest and hardworking Colleen is. Every time she promised something she was true to her word. She never offered advice unless we asked and again that advice always had more to do with whether she thought a place would be a good fit for us rather than a sale for herself. When the closing process took a bit longer than we anticipated, Colleen encouraged us to stick with it and reassured us that securing a mortgage often could take a bit longer in these times of tighter money. And, again, when we did close on the property, Colleen seemed almost as happy for us as we were. In sum, it was truly a pleasure to work with Colleen and we honestly feel lucky to have found her. We cannot recommend her highly enough and would give her a ‘six star’ rating if we could!”
“Colleen was excellent and went above and beyond the standard in order to get my property sold. As I was living out of state at the time, she handled everything for me from checking the oil level in the furnace to overseeing the cleaning and painting projects.
When her colleagues suggested she list my property $20K lower then what she thought, she stuck to her guns and sure enough the property sold for what she had for the asking price! I would highly recommend Colleen for anyone thinking of selling Real Estate.”
