Collins 11/20/20 presentation on state of market and expert response to questions about areas of opportunity made me want to immediately seek his help in finding the perfect investment for me and my wife. Although my expectations were already lofty, he exceeded them in every way. Hes the consummate professional.
I did not just simply give him all excellent scores to make it quick, he truly was excellent in all the above components of the process. ~ Jerry F, Back Bay
Collin came highly recommended by a close friend, I was not disappointed, I referred him to few other since.
I've purchased and sold several properties and It's the first time I experienced working with an agent who partnered to understand my needs and wasn't rushing to cease any potential opportunities...
Collin has strong ethics and is passionate about doing things right with a strong attention to details without losing sight of the big picture.
He cares and advocates for you, understands the other party's prospective, he knows the market, the city and its various communities very well.
He has a classy and incomparable edge to introduce units on tours, he is the perfect guide to your purchase.
~ Pierre Domain Boston
I've purchased a couple of homes with Collin's help and he has always been able to provide a level of insight into the property and market well beyond what I would expect. His guidance on the offer process has always been especially valuable and has left me feeling very confident in my purchases. ~ Zach Gauci, Boston
Collin was highly recommended by a former colleague (also a real estate broker). He did an excellent job, 100% professional and very helpful and understanding of our needs. He was tremendously helpful in negotiating and understanding the pros/cons and pricing of the homes we looked at, and his diligence carried through after the sale. ~ Anand, Charlestown
Collin takes the time to get to know you and finds the right property for you. He is not just after a commission. It was a pleasure working with him ! ~ Diane Demoulas Charlestown
Collin was extremely attentive and very thorough during our sales process. We used him to purchase our condo and we had a great experience so we decided to have him represent us with the sale as well. During this stressful time he made things so easy and is a joy to work with. It was a quick and seemless transaction and we would be happy to recommend his services to family and friends! ~ Willig: Waltham
We cannot wait to give Collin's name to all of our family and friends. We could not have been more impressed with his professionalism, communication, leadership and guidance during what can be an incredibly stressful time. We are so grateful to have worked with him and cannot wait to work with him again. ~ Keith & Maura Foley
Collin came in as a second opinion on the sale of my home. I let him know that I was working with another realtor and wanted his opinion on the market analysis. He gave me a comprehensive market analysis and came to the table with low costs updates that would sell my property at the price I was looking to sell. From the outset, we were very aligned and he did a great job preparing my home to sell. From our initial conversations, I knew he was better aligned with me than the other realtor and ultimately decided to use Collin. I was ecstatic with his service and driving the sale above asking. I would highly recommend Collin to my friends and family. ~ Shant Arakelian, South Boston
Fabulous, Simply Fabulous! ~ Joe Bardenheier, Boston
We have worked with Collin multiple times now over the years and cannot recommend him enough. He makes the process of buying and selling a home so easy. Every question we had was answered, every detail was considered, and every step was communicated. ~ Scott, Jamaica Plain
Collin was great! We knew we would be selling into a difficult market and hoped to do so quickly. Collin was able to get great pictures taken quickly and had us listed as soon as possible. He helped us set a fair price and find a buyer within 10 days. We've already recommended him to a friend, and the buyer now has him listing his condo. ~ Mike & Allyson, Boston
Collin Bray was patient, responsive and extremely helpful and calm every step of the way during our condo search. We had a number of bumps along the way that had nothing to do with Collin but each time, Collin stayed calm and inspired confidence in his handling of some very unusual circumstances. He has enormous integrity, a great network, and terrific knowledge of the Beacon Hill/Back Bay market. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him, and we are very grateful for his help getting us to the finish line in a wonderful condo! ~ D & D, Boston
We had several challenges that arose regarding the condo which was a part of a family estate. Colin dealt with every issue, some which were quite complex, with utmost knowledge and professionalism. He untangled these complex issues and sold the condo in an efficient and timely manner. He is reliable, trustworthy and knows the market. We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience with Colin Bray! ~ Mira Courpas, Washington, DC
Colin was knowledgeable and personable and used an I Pad.
Colin was a real pleasure to work with. Never rushed me. Made sure I understood everything.
The property sold in two days at $50,000 over asking. An excellent result.
I recommended Colin to a neighbor and he sold his unit also. ~ Pat- Brookline, MA
Collin's understanding of the real estate market in the Boston market is top of the line. His advice regarding pricing, staging and marketing were critical to the successful sale of our property.

Collin went above and beyond the call of duty as the buy-side broker for our condominium purchase. He was always pleasant, available, and punctual, and he acted as an enthusiastic advocate on our behalf when dealing with the developer.

After a months long search, Collin Bray helped me find my dream condo in a South End. He took the time to understand what I was looking for so that we didnt jump at every property that came on the market and I ended up with exactly what I was looking for. As a first time buyer, there was a steep learning curve and Collin helped me get up it and ultimately feel confident in what I was doing.

We worked with Collin to find and purchase a home in South Boston. He is very knowledgeable about the area, down to individual streets and developments, and understands the price competition that each property will command. He helped us negotiate for our property and understood the appropriate strategy to use in order to have our bid accepted. He is professional, responsive and extremely patient with clients that are new to buying a home. We would love to work with Collin again in the future and are happy to recommend him to anyone that is currently looking for a realtor. ~ SN, South Boston
If you are considering buying or selling a home, look no further than Collin Bray. We recently worked with Collin on purchasing a property and he was incredibly helpful. His knowledge and understanding of both the market and process is unparalleled. As a couple unfamiliar with the neighborhood, Collin's experience and awareness of not only the current market, but future developments was crucial in our decision-making. Using his strong networking skills, Collin was able to get us a showing before the open house. If you are in the greater Boston area I highly recommend working with Collin Bray! His expertise, professionalism and dedication to his clients is unmatched. ~ Freddy Petkus
Collin not just listened to what I was looking for but heard it as well. Rather than show me properties to just make a sale he was selective. A great time saver for us both and greatly appreciated.
Collin was able to make what could have been a highly stressful experience into an enjoyable adventure as I looked for the perfect condo. ~ Gina G, South Boston
Collin made the whole home buying process painless for me. From our first chat where he laid out what I should expect and helped me understand how it all would work, through the finding and evaluating of properties, he had good insight on units and neighborhoods and was happy to explain anything I needed.
When the time came to make an offer, he gave me good advice that ended up landing me in a place that I am very excited about at a very reasonable price. Collin continued to accommodate my schedule and needs throughout the closing -- connecting me with the right people, explaining things I was unsure about and helping me get what I deserved from the seller.
Working with Collin was a great experience and has left me with a much more positive view of home-purchasing than many of my friends who have been shopping in the Boston area. ~ Zach Gauci, Boston
Collin was the buyers agent for the first of 3 condos. After months of less than professional service from my previous broker the buyer suggested Collin to me. I interviewed him and he was very informative and professional. He clearly did his homework and was easy to work with. ~ Tom Demeo, Somerville, MA
Collin sold other units in building AND in the Back Bay very important in decision making/sent comp's to assist in pricing condo
Had 4 offers within 3/4 week period ~ John Maraganis Boston
Collin Bray of Century 21 is the most knowledgeable Agent in regards to the Boston market. Collin & I have developed a relationship over the
years of respect to his knowledge. He has helped me find great Tenants over the years & I only would consider him, when it came time to sell
my home in Boston.
They are top shelf and know their market, I would only recommend this company.
If I where to purchase property in Boston again, I would only go to Collin Bray of Century 21. They are the best choice for this Boston Market. ~ Yvonne Shevalier
We had worked with Collin Bray in the past to find our rental apartment in Back bay. We were very impressed with his professionalism and how quickly we found the perfect apartment.
Once we started looking for a home to buy we knew from the beginning that we wanted to work with Collin again. We were complete novices in home-buying. so in our initial meeting, Collin methodically walked us through the whole procedure from the beginning to the end. We then talked about what was important to us and the areas that were suited to our needs.
During the search we found Collin and James Larkin to be very knowledgable and prompt in answering our questions. Collin was very proactive and resourceful to come up with inventory that we had not paid attention to or were not yet on the market.
Collin helped us with our bidding strategy too and we not only got the first house we bid on but we also managed to save quite a bit of money.
The walk-throughs and final walkthrough were a breeze with both Collin and James paying attention to every detail.
The closing and the financial side of things can often be the thing that can be tricky (or so we had heard) but Collin has a fantastic team who worked diligently to answer all our questions and made sure we closed in time.
All in all we are both extremely happy about working with Collin and his team and could not ask for more. We have already passed on his details to friends of ours who are in the market and will continue to spread the good word. ~ Soheil and Vidya, Somerville
As a first time home buyer I was quite apprehensive of the whole process but that was quickly put to ease working with Collin. He made a significant investment of time to understand what I was looking for and provided fantastic anecdotes from his experience to help define the search. From there he arranged a great array of properties and once we found the one his project management skills took over. I was extremely impressed at his willingness to educate me on the process and his ability to maintain timelines, both his own and those of everyone involved.
All in all it was a stressful process made enjoyable by Collin's hardwork, expertise in the area, and seemingly endless network that ensured everthing ran smoothly.
He's a credit to his team and I can't say enough about him and would highly recommend working with him in your search for a home. ~ Dylan Rushe, Boston
Collin helped me buy my first home. He took the time to educate me during the process as well as inform me of the Boston marketplace. He was an excellent communicator and it was very easy to reach him as I was overseas during most of the buying process. I would recommend Collin to any of my family and friends! ~ Andrew Cambridge, MA
The service provided by Collin Bray surpassed any other realtor that I dealt with in the past. He helped me with every aspect from preparing the property for sale to closing on the property. I do not live in the area and not once did I need to travel to the Boston area for any reason. It was a trouble-free experience thanks to Collin. ~ Scott Howard, Wappingers Falls, NY
Collin was everything we needed in a broker for our first home purchase. He's very knowledgeable about the market and the process, he was patient with us as we learned along the way, and he was able to negotiate a fair price for us. Best of all, he does a great job as an adviser, helping us stay focused and make good decisions when things got stressful and/or emotional. We are extremely happy with the house Collin got us into and would look forward to working with him again. ~ Jack Canning, Framingham
Collin was very knowledgable and professional. Two of the most important qualities we look for when dealing with an agent. ~ ArchBuild Group, Boston
Collin was attentive and proactive from the start, helping me to define in which neighborhoods I was looking, and giving good advice on cost and value.
Collin focused on the properties which were right for me, both in terms of specifications and aesthetic. He only asked me to see properties which were in range, and I felt confident he was highlighting the best places on the market.
When it came down to making an offer Collin really excelled, showing his knowledge of the market, and helping me to find a good price point. In subsequent negotiations, Collin was very supportive, and I feel he played a large part in my winning bid.
I would recommend Collin to anyone looking for a place in Boston. ~ George Vinton, Boston
