Colette worked tirelessly with us from beginning to end of this process in one of life's major transitions. We called her out of the blue while she was on vacation in Florida to let her know we were ready for a change. She interrupted her vacation to give us key guidance and support. Over six months Colette searched for dozens of properties to fit our exact needs and we love the house she found us! Colette did everything possible with a personal touch to make sure our house sold quickly, and for top dollar! She had a creative vision from the beginning before listing the house, and made sure to maximized the beauty and appeal of our home and she guided us through the process with wisdom, humor, attentive service, and kind understanding. We always felt like we were her "only" clients even though we are aware she's got lots of other listings and clients. We felt she was always available, pr…

We felt she was always available, prepared, and responsive to our needs, and that she was highly knowledgeable and competent. We would strongly recommend her based on her professionalism, hard work, and terrific results. Colette is a rare find there are far too many agents willing to throw a sign on your property but few who will treat your house like your past home and inspire buyers to visualize their future in the property. Thank you, Colette.

We just closed escrow as buyers with Colette and we could not be happier or more grateful. First of all, she not only knew the local neighborhoods/streets, but also had a great reputation and deep relationships with the local agents. Because of that, she was able to show us houses that hadn't yet been listed and find out details that weren't publicly known. Secondly, Colette has an architectural background that allows her to assess the structural soundness and required repairs that needed to be done. Third, she has a super direct and friendly personality and was available all the time. She texted back within minutes and always answered all of our questions. Fourth, she is tough and will negotiate for you like a bulldog. Our sellers tried to get of making repairs, and Colette fought for us so hard that in the end the sellers gave us credit when they had initially tried to fix it (badly) t…

Most of all, we always felt that Colette had our best interest at heart, took the time to listen to us, and watched out for us. We are so grateful to have found Colette and would never use anyone else.

We’ve worked with many agents in our home buying and selling, and Colette ranks at the top level in every way. We wanted knowledge of the overall market and our neighborhood, good communication, high energy and results. Colette delivered on all. She offered clear guidance when it was needed, told us our options when we had choices and left us plenty of room to make decisions. She knew our neighborhood as well as the nearby area and the overall Pasadena-LA market. Colette understood what the selling points for our house would be and how to present and market for maximum impact. She helped with decisions on staging, preparing, timeline, pricing and handling the large number of offers, which exceeded our expectations. We ended up with a sales price well over asking and a smooth closing process. We heartily recommend Colette and will always appreciate her professionalism, courtesy and of cou…

Richelle B.

Colette was an absolute pleasure to work with. From day 1, she met with us and found out what both mine and my boyfriend's needs were. She stopped at nothing to find what both of us wanted. And let me tell you, they were challenging wants. Walk in closet for me, big room for entertaining, safe neighborhood for both of us and of course within our budget. She brought up many different options for us to look at, spent hours with us looking at house after house, and finally when we found the house of our dreams. She negotiated the house into our price range and got extras thrown in we didn't even think of. We will be recommending Colette to all our friends in the future. We could not have had a better house buying experience than we did!

Colette is a great pleasure to work with. I give Colette my highest recommendation and suggest you hire her for your upcoming real estate sale or purchase.

Buyer

Colette was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She worked with our schedule, around our hours and was on hand at all times to schedule viewings. Her in depth knowledge of the Greater Los Angeles property market was second to none and a valuable resource throughout the whole process. Thanks to Colette's attention to detail, care and professionalism, we found the house of our dreams. She acted incredibly quickly to secure us the house, negotiated us a great price and put us in touch with a superb lender. I couldn't have wished for a better experience from start to finish. Any future property movements we undertake will be handled by Colette. We couldn't recommend her any higher. She's the best.

Buyer

Colette far exceeded our expectations in a realtor. As first time homebuyers, new to the area, she took us under her wing of expertise and helped guide us to find our perfect home. Colette was super responsive, as needed in this market where homes are selling the same day they're listed, she knew when to negotiate vs when to walk away, and was away willing to fight for us and our needs. We felt that she always had our best interest at heart and most importantly Colette is honest and genuine, qualities that we found don't come easy with finding a realtor. My husband and I would highly recommend her to anyone and will definitely be using her in the future should the need arise.

Colette Dornblum is a superb real estate agent. Her local knowledge is exceptional, and she knew exactly how to represent us and our house. She explained the entire process up front, made sure that we knew what was happening every step of the way. When we had to make decisions, she gave us great advice, and we came to trust her judgment entirely. She responded quickly to every question we had, and when it came time to review the multiple offers for our house, she laid out all the information in such a way that it was actually easy to choose the best one. We think she is the best agent in our area, and we can't recommend her highly enough. Simply fabulous!

Susan S.

Colette is a fantastic Realtor and is a pleasure to work with. My wife and I relocated from VA to CA, and didn't know the area too well. Colette was knowledgeable about the area, and helped us find the perfect place in a really short time frame. Colette even negotiated the deposit for our lease! My wife and I have now been in our rental for 8 months and have been extremely happy. When my wife and I decide to move again we will be contacting Colette!

Her knowledge of the area, of the real estate process and current market, and her negotiating skills are beyond impressive. She has gotten us (and other) the best deals hands down, and fast. I couldn't recommend her more highly or enthusiastically!

Amanda

We began working with Colette earlier this year in a real estate market that can only be described as daunting for a homebuyer. She listened to what we needed and was candid with her advice, persistent in our search, creative and proactive in her approach, and a passionate advocate throughout the process.

Colette is organized, knowledgeable, honest and friendly. In addition, Colette was very willing to work within our schedule throughout the entire process. You can expect a quick and efficient response text or email to all of your questions or concerns. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Colette was exceptionally thoughtful, professional and helpful throughout the entire process of not only selling our home for us, but helping us buy our next home as well. If we ever need an agent again, I won't hesitate to ask Colette. Her knowledge and trustworthiness is unparalleled.

Buyer & Seller

Colette is the best! She truly understood how to market our mid-century house we had a flood of offers immediately and went into escrow in less than 2 weeks. She also found us another mid-century house to purchase and transitioned us into it gracefully.

Colette sold our house for way over the asking price. I will tell you to listen to her and do everything she says. We can not say enough good things about her.
