Testimonials (25)

It was a pleasure working with Colette and Teri. They were always there if we had any questions during the selling and closing process. We were extremely surprised at how quickly the house sold and for more than the listing price. Colette and Teri make a great team and we would recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home. Karen & Claude Foley
They were extremely helpful and pleasant to work with. Christoper & Suzanne Silva
Colette Harron is the best! 15 Pettipaug LLC
Colette Harron is proactive, responsive, genuinely cares for her client's needs, and sets realistic expectations. There were no surprises. From staging to close, Colette conducted herself with professionalism and courtousy, and we were truly blessed to have her handle the sale of our home. It is a pleasure to leave this testimonial. Elizabeth Kusche
Michael Perkins, Colette Harron and Teri Lewis were all amazing to work with. Their knowledge, attentiveness and professionalism are second to none! Nancy Brault
I never expected to be treated as the most important client in history, but we were. We were advised with our interests in mind, we were guided without being made to feel we were just a transaction needing a push. We were treated as good friends. I can see exactly why Colette is famous, not because she sells, although she did that, but because she is simply superb. I have bought and sold homes in many places, no previous experience even comes close. Howard & Carter Fish
Just wonderful!! Nancy Brault
Colette was wonderful to work with during my recent purchase. I will work with her on the sale of my current home. Nancy Brault
Colette was wonderful - knowledgable, kind and made the sale as painless as possible Claudia Vannes
Colette and team are fantastic to work with. Andrew Guziewicz
Colette Harron was simply much more than I could have anticipated. She normally sales very high end properties and mine was a special historical property but less than $1Million. She treated my property and me as if we were multiples of this amount, was simply professional everyday, followed through everyday and always calmly. I cannot recommend her more highly. Colette is THE best, Mary Mary Matthews
Knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy, and sensitive to our needs are just a few words to describe Colette Harron. It was a very pleasurable experience working with Colette. Bette & Terry Lomme Bette Lomme
Collette Harron is simply the best of the best. Professional, personable, patient, understanding, punctual- always available by phone or in person. She has a way of always making you feel that you and your house are the most important thing- John & Jean Baxter
Colette is excellent to work with. Atlantis Building Co. Inc.
Colette is an outstanding professional - her knowledge of the area and the market, her understanding of both buyers and sellers and her empathy is simply incredible. She is very efficient but never pushes a client to make a decision - once the decision is made, she implements promptly and effectively. We cannot thank her and her team enough. Reena & Sanjay Mithal
Collette Harron is a fabulous, attentive agent! She always responded quickly to our questions and/or concerns and handled all matters with confidentiality. Three fitting adjectives for Collette…"professional, responsible and consistent”. We would use her again in a heartbeat and will definitely recommend her to friends! Joan & Arthur Wright
Colette Harron was fabulous. I would recommend her highly Kathleen Cordsen
Colette did a wonderful job listing and selling both houses that I entrusted to her in record time at more than I thought we would get. Extremely happy with her professionalism and expertise. Julia Balfour Living Trust
Colette was lovely. Our experience with her started with an interesting twist as the house we were interested went under deposit prior to our second viewing, when I was suppose to bring my husband to see the property. Needless to say I was very disappointed that we didn't have the opportunity to put in a offer prior to the sellers accepting that offer from the other interested party, but I was informed by Colette that the buyers wanted a timely response from the sellers and they did move quickly to accept that offer. Thankfully for us that offer fell threw and opened the door for us to make an offer, our offer was rejected by the sellers as another higher offer came through, again disappointed we thought it was a sign that the property was not meant to be ours. But as faith would have it that offer also fell apart, so I encouraged by husband to put forth our highest and best offer and with the experience and expertise of Colette our offer was accepted by the sellers!! We were thrilled that the 3rd time was a charm!! Colette guided us through the closing process which was relatively easy as ours was a cash offer with no contingencies. She recommended a local attorney who was very good and followed up with us right to the closing date which went off smoother than any other real estate closing we had, and we've had several. I would highly recommend and refer Colette to friends, family and even those I don't know looking in the Essex, CT area. She is a delight, highly knowledge and now someone I consider a friend. Looking forward to our move to Essex soon as we have some renovations to do before moving into our beautiful new (at least to us) home. Matthew Walston
Working with Colette is a great pleasure.  She knows the Connecticut Shoreline so well, is patient and encouraging, and wonderful to see houses with.  I bought a house through her and just recently sold one.  Both transactions were easy and drama-free, and I credit that to Colette.  The photographs taken by Peter, posted by Colette on her website, were beautiful--they captured the light and all the charm of the house and its view. She is the best!  Luanne Rice
Colette Harron is wonderfully professional and a pleasure to work with. Thank You Sylvia & Shane Eddy
Colette Harron is simply outstanding. She has the reputation she deserves which is that she is the best. Antonio & Lynn Robaina
Colette Harron is WONDERFUL. We love working with her. Thank you!!! Patricia & Philip Holt
Colette was wonderful and in full command of preparing the home for sale which resulted in the unbelievable 4 days of marketing before we had an agreement signed! Kimberly & Francis Gilhool
The Connecticut real estate market has been terrible for years and it took a long time to sell our antique home just outside of Essex village on a main road without a new kitchen. Colette Harron, our realtor was stalwart with us throughout this difficult period. She was supportive but candid, hopeful but realistic and always balanced throughout the process. She guided us when my co-owner and I were not in agreement on what to do - lower the price or not lower the price. Colette, though French, was from Switzerland - ever prudent and careful in her guidance, neutral, although her guidance was there if you listened. She is wise and her wisdom, sensible moves and some good luck eventually resulted in the sale of our home. Colette knows Essex and Old Saybrook especially Fenwick and most importantly knows human nature. Fenwick homeowners wouldn't waste their time on anyone less than Colette. My retirement prospects are a little better today and I thank Colette, Joanne and the staff of your Essex office for helping us to sell our home of 33 years. Thank you. Rich Wackenreuter, Clarksburg, Maryland Richard & Maureen Wackenreuter
