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.

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

Sylvia & Shane Eddy

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.
