– Rey & Heather
“My experience with Colin Gilroy, Realtor was a wonderful whirlwind experience! I knew that I needed to sell my house in a fairly short period of time, so I allowed Colin to walk through while the house was basically in shambles because of the painting, etc. that was going on.
I thought for sure that he would focus on the bad parts of the house that did not look so great at the time. Instead he noticed a lot of what was hidden behind the mess, and included all information that he collected in an easy to understand and logical Market Evaluation.
He left me with all the information to go over which included a proposed price range based on similar homes in the area, and made sure that I understood that all decisions were ultimately up to me.
As any homeowner would, I felt overwhelmed with all of the decisions, which Colin helped me through, and was able to knowledgeably answer any questions that I had, and provide his opinion when asked. I felt that he understood and sympathized with my circumstances surrounding the sale, and made it as easy as it could be on me.
I was so impressed with the marketing plan that he put into action, and he always kept me informed of how many were interested in the property. I ended up receiving 9 offers on the property, and sold it for 32% MORE THAN LIST PRICE! I truly believe that I would not have had as good of a response and outcome if it hadn’t been for all of Colin’s hard work and great ideas! Spectacular!”
