Growing up in a Real Estate family, I understand the importance of guiding buyers and homeowners through the financial & emotional process.
As a Real Estate Consultant, my three most critical roles are to Consult, Negotiate and Overseeing all transactional details. As a Consultant, I guide prospective clients through the process of clarifying their goals because when their goals are clear their decisions are easy. It's important that they know what is truly important to them and in doing so, I can be the best Consultant for them. As a Negotiator, I treat clients money as if it were mine. When it comes time to making or saving money, I am a strong negotiator and clients soon come to realize that I earn every penny. Last but certainly not least, as the person that Oversees ALL transactional details, with over 100 phone calls and over 150 pieces of paper per transaction, that attention to detail is not only critical but an error could be costly.
Follow up is extremely important to me, as I make sure that my clients and all industry counterparts are always kept abrest of what exactly is transpiring. My clients advocacy is my number one goal.
On a personal note, I have been living in Arizona for the last 24 years and raised 3 wonderful children. I have seen the tremendous growth and how it has transformed the valley, especially in the Luxury market. The Real Estate industry has become and continues to be sophisticated and demanding every day. As a consummate professional, I consistently and continuously educate, train, and meet with mastermind groups to better serve my clients.
When you are relocating or looking for a second home to escape your winters, I will patiently listen to all your wants and needs, then find the best home that suits you. I am also a staunt advocate that my clients live close to their work, especially if there are children involved. So, if you have children, you absolutely want somone with extensive knowledge of the Paradise Valley, Scottdale, Chandler, Gilbert and surrounding school districts.
In conclusion, if you need someone who will go the extra mile to help you meet your goals, then I am your Real Estate Consultant For Life!

Without a doubt, Colleen was the best real estate agent with which we have ever worked. Her availability, ability to multitask, her commitment, her professionalism, attention to detail, and uncanny aptitude in looking out for OUR needs was unparalleled. My wife and I made many comments about how lucky we felt to have had Colleen as our real estate agent for a move out of state. She was practical, down to earth, and we feel like she was a hound dog in watching out for our interests on a daily basis. We could not have asked for more. - Carey and Elaine - See more at: http://www.sayyestothisaddress.com/testimonials.html#sthash.JTM2nIsX.dpuf

'Colleen sold our Mesa home quickly, efficiently and at an excellent price. She worked hard to make sure the home looked terrific (she made some great suggestions about how to show the home to potential buyers). She hired an excellent photographer, utilized her contacts and marketing skills, and got a full price offer in 8 days. Her attitude is a do-whatever-it-takes to service her clients. Above and beyond service and a great realtor. Highly recommended.' - Jeanette - See more at: http://www.sayyestothisaddress.com/testimonials.html#sthash.JTM2nIsX.dpuf

'Colleen was wonderful to work with. We have high expectations and she has met them and exceeded them. We really appreciated that she came to the final signing at the title company. She always made us feel that our needs were important and we felt that she actually cared. She was on top of the details for the transaction and she was just really fun to work with. She negotiated the purchase of our home and we were able to get it with multiple offers - she rocks!

'Colleen, I got to reflect on you and the amazing commitment you've made to improve every aspect of your life. Your health and well being is off the chart. At the ‘Build Your Body Build Your Business Event’ you inspired everyone with your determination, courage and pure willingness to press beyond anything you had ever done. What struck me most was during our coaching session about "HOW", your openness to grow your business so you can help more people reach their goals showed me that you are now more then ready to let go and really GROW!

Our agent in California recommended her to help us buy our home in Chandler. She was "phenomenal"! We did not hesitate to call her when it came time to sell our home. Again, she exceeded our expectations in every way! Colleen is so good laying out the ground work, preparing a "plan" for us, and always communicating with us during every phase of the selling process. Answering ALL of our questions, addressing our needs. Colleen is and was always there for us. Colleen is very positive and enthusiastic. She has that special gift and recognizes people need to be informed and in-the-loop at all times. Again, she was always there! Just incredibly outstanding. Deeply satisfied and truly "blessed" to have a true dedicated professional who really cares about who she is as a person and as an agent and cares about serving people the best that she can. Again, Colleen has exceeded our expectations, especially during the selling process in a tough market! She is "genuine, honest, and true". She loves doing what she does best and it shows! We would recommend Colleen without hesitation! She is one in a million! Thank you Colleen! - Larry and Rosie - See more at: http://www.sayyestothisaddress.com/testimonials.html#sthash.z2We0n2e.dpuf

We have known Colleen Olson for many years. She is one of the finest people we know. She assisted us in buying a home several years ago. She was proactive, enthusiastic, an excellent listener, and extremely knowledgeable. Colleen's efficiency was exemplary and she quickly ascertained what we were looking for in a home and then moved quickly to find the best options. Her expertise was highly evident; her negotiation skills are outstanding. We would not have found/gotten this house without her level of professionalism and efficiency. She accommodated our busy work week schedule by meeting with us on Sunday - immediately after finding the best options. I feel Colleen's work ethic, exuberant personality, and commitment to her clients is of the highest caliber. I take any opportunity I can to recommend her to other potential buyers. Colleen is looking out for the best interest of the client. Her experience and expertise is highly appreciated, given the enormity and gravity associated with buying a home. I fully trust her judgment and skills. She made the process enjoyable! - Pam and Irvin - See more at: http://www.sayyestothisaddress.com/testimonials.html#sthash.z2We0n2e.dpuf

We were given options from the relocation department at Intel and Colleen had come highly recommended to us from other families that had recently used her for their move. She was amazing with communications and keeping us updated on everything regarding our home choice and purchase. We are so grateful for having Colleen as our Realtor! She knew the area so well and we got to know all about our family and worked hard to make a vested interest in what suited us best. She helped us find our forever home and we are so happy here! - Russ and Joy - See more at: http://www.sayyestothisaddress.com/testimonials.html#sthash.CMajq9F4.dpuf

Colleen's experience in dealing with Intel relocation and all the processes was key in allowing for this process to go smoothly for us. She always either answered the phone or responded to a voicemail within minutes of us trying to contact her. She had a knowledgeable assistant that was also helpful in this process. Colleen went out of her way to make us feel at easy and comfortable with everything that happened during the sale of our current home. She also helped assist us when working with the agent in Oregon when issues arose. Colleen is the most knowledgeable realtor that we have ever worked with and consistently demonstrated care and concern for us!!!- Michael and Nicole - See more at: http://www.sayyestothisaddress.com/testimonials.html#sthash.z2We0n2e.dpuf
