Colleen was amazing for making a potentially stressful downsize run so smoothly. We were newbies at buying and selling homes as we had only moved a couple of times in our lives, Also, we were downsizing from a large, four bedroom house to a two-bedroom condo. Colleen had great tips and lots of patience and was always only a phone call away. She is honest and upfront and her full focus is to help you find your perfect home. We highly recommend her!

"We wish to recommend Colleen to anyone thinking of moving. Moving can be a very stressful experience, especially for seniors. Colleen made this transition as smooth as possible with her attention to detail and also carefully listening , understanding and attending to our wishes.
You cannot expect more than that from your realtor"
Colleen, we were very happy that we chose you as our realtor when we were selling our townhouse and buying a single family home. We found you to be honest, knowledgeable of the local market, and very professional as you guided us through the process.
During our search for a new home, you always maintained positive when the results of the houses we looked at, weren't initially as expected and you did a great job at managing our expectations. During our sell, you justified the listing price, did a fantastic job at helping stage our home; you marketed the property well, which ultimately led to a quick sale of our property.
We truly felt from the beginning that we could trust you and that you had our best interests at heart. We could not have been any more pleased and impressed, and that is why we continue to recommend your services to our friends and family.

I am happy to provide this endorsement to Colleen O'Keefe who listed and successfully sold my house in Ocean Park between May and September this year (2015). From the initial consultation though to final negotiations, Colleen was thoughtful, professional, thorough and transparent. She is a person of very high integrity, creativity and determination. She followed up on every showing, giving me appropriate feedback and encouragement. She worked through all of the negotiating details carefully to ensure my best interests were captured. I would highly recommend her as a real estate professional committed to you during a typically stressful process of selling your home.

I have indeed had the pleasure of retaining Colleen as my realtor on two occasions. Her professional approach, attention to detail and availability at a moments notice is truly a testament to her willingness to provide exceptional service to her clients. Her vast knowledge, experience and commitment to support her clients throughout the entire process of listing, selling, purchasing and moving as stress free as possible. I most certainly will be retaining her again in the future.

Colleen O'Keefe sold our house in Woodcrest Drive when we moved away from South Surrey.
Colleen suggested ways to prepare our home to show at its best, and then designed a prospectus with photographs to complement the clear description she had written.
Shortly after our house was put on the market my husband was involved in an accident and needed to spend three months in hospital. Colleen assisted me in many ways during this time, she was always available to open and close the house for prospective buyers, making it easier for me to spend most of my time at the hospital in Vancouver with my husband. I was extremely grateful to her for that. She went the extra mile at all times.
Colleen assisted greatly with the final paperwork when the house was sold - and continued to do this until the day I moved out. She made the whole selling process as easy as it could be for me.
Colleen is a wonderful example of professionalism and efficiency combined with a kind heart and a real sense of responsibility - my husband and I are both very grateful to her and would not hesitate to recommend her to prospective clients.

We considered ourselves very fortunate to secure Colleen O’Keefe as our realtor. We had heard through a colleague that she was professional, and worked hard for her clients; we were not disappointed.
Colleen proved that and more. She helped us to both sell our home, and buy a home, in neighbourhoods that she was not particularly familiar with, and that were not close to her office. That did not impede her at all. She did her homework, finding out about the area we were leaving, to tell prospective buyers; then about the area we wanted to move to. Colleen took the time to find out what our needs were, and made appointments with homes in an area my husband and I felt good about. Additionally, at no time did she push or embellish details to ‘make the sale’, as we had experienced in the past. Simply put, Colleen O’Keefe is a friendly, competent realtor who has her clients’ best interests at heart. I would recommend Colleen to anyone in a heartbeat.
We recently sold our home and we were for fortunate to have the most positive of experiences. Initially the task seemed incredibly daunting, but after hiring Colleen O’Keefe of Sutton Realty, our fears were laid to rest and in a short time our sale and move complete. Colleen is knowledgeable, hard working and the consummate professional. But more than that, she possesses a passion that neither my husband or myself expected. Whether it was taking the time to explain the whole process, understanding our stresses, or suggesting the most innovative of selling techniques, Colleen brought a personal touch that gave us a sense that she was not only selling our home, but she was selling her home.
When it came to looking for a new home, Colleen was equally invested in our vision. She listened carefully to our needs, she asked the right questions to ensure we were on the same page and she set about to find the right house for us. We do not plan on moving again for a while, but if and when the need arises, we are contacting Colleen.

Colleen represented us in the sale of two properties, with each of them being sold for a better-than-expected price. Aside from her excellent negotiating skills and diligence in marketing the properties, we found Colleen to be very personable and appreciated her listening so attentively to the needs of our particular situation. She advised us well, and we were lucky to have found such a trustworthy and understanding realtor.
