    My Client Testimonials

    I had called Colleen in reference to another house that was advertised in the general area of where her sign was. Through our discussion I discovered that it was not even her listing but she took the time to talk to me about the area and what to look for in a builder or available properties. I was in another state at that time and really was not in a good buyers position in this market but Colleen still took the time out to help me get familiar with the area that I was going to relocate to and treated me as though I was important. I remembered our conversation and her willingness to help me months later when I was in a good buyers position so I went through my relocation company and insisted on having her represent me on our purchase. It should be noted that she was not the first agent that I was referred to or even spent time with but she was the one who I wanted to represent me when it came down to making our purchase. She took care of every detail that we needed towards the purchase and closing of our home. Colleen discussed items with us and had things added to the closing agreement that protected us from what could have been very adverse to us later on. Colleen made us feel protected and represented us in a manner that was not only professional but like a friend would look out for another friend. Colleen was requested by me through my companies relocation company and although Century 21 affiliated was not on their list of preferred agents we were able to have Colleen represent us with the approval of Colleens chain of command. They were all very nice and very professional in the way that the request was made and the approval was given. Our whole experience couldn't have been better! ~ Terry & Lynn Knott - Winfield, Indiana

The Century 21 staff was able to adapt to our difficult process. The closing could have not went any better, information was explained in simple terms. Thanks to everyone involved Excellent , plus all things stated in the beginning of this survey. Bye -the-way, Thank you very much Colleen !
