Did not deal with Colleen Blatz.
I cannot say enough amazing things about Colleen. She worked tirelessly to find us our dream home and made herself available to accommodate our busy schedule. As first time buyers, she answered all of our many questions about the home buying progress and was very involved at all stages of the deal to ensure we were getting everything we wanted. I give her my highest recommendation!
Very pleased with outcome and my realtors patience and kindness in assisting me to find and purchase a new home. There are all types of avenues people can use to purchase a home. I appreciate my realtor and her assistant for taking the initiative to embrace a new process in order for me to purchase a home. It was a business arrangement that turned into a friendship. Thank you

From the very first time we met Colleen at the showing of the very first home we wanted to view, we knew it was a match! She was professional, attentive, patient, knowledgeable and kind. We were still a little uncertain of the type of home we wanted, and where we wanted to settle...but through it all, Collen provided top notch customer service. It is very evident that she was made for this career: because she works with families as if they were HER own friend or relative in the search for the home that best suits their family! We'll be forever grateful for the support that Colleen provided to assist our family in moving into the home of our dreams!
Nicole Simon was an outstanding agent and was invaluable when it came to helping us negotiate our way through the sell of our old house and purchase of our new home. She really understood the market and was always quick to respond.
Colleen Blatz was professional, competent and an overall asset during my home purchase. I enjoyed working with Colleen and appreciated her attentiveness.
Colleen was AMAZING! She was so accommodating and I always felt like she had my best interest at heart. She said from the very beginning that she treats all her buyers as if they will be potential sellers in the future. I didn't have a car when shopping for my new home and she arranged pick ups and drop offs with me when needed, even with her partner when she was out of town. She helped advise me when I was on the fence about places and would rather see me happy then choose something quick so she could get a commission. The only bad thing about closing was seeing an end to our business relationship.
We were very pleased with The Blatz team! Our realtor Nicole Simon was amazing! When she was out on vacation she had Colleen fill in for her which she was wonderful to work with as well. We would highly recommend them!
Colleen was a terrific agent. She was always available to answer questions and give us her expert opinions. She helped make the entire process run smoothly.

Colleen,We have sold numerous houses in our adult life and you by far where the most professional, efficient and knowledgeable. Your attention to detail was unbelievable and without your assistance, we would not have been able to sell as quickly as we did. You guided us along the way making it a smooth contract and sell….Thank you for making the job of selling and moving so pleasurable. You are absolutely the BEST!!!

"We came across Colleen through one of the online platforms as we were not happy with our first two realtors and we are so very glad we decided to call her and since then she has been an absolute pleasure and we could not have imagined a better realtor to guide us through our home buying process. The most outstanding qualities about Colleen are her knowledge, insight, promptness and her responsiveness to any questions one may have. She truly acted in our best interest and evaluates a home with you as if she was buying it, looking for things that we would miss, asking the questions that first time home buyers like us wouldn't think of, and above all she invested her time with us and never made us feel rushed. Her honesty and guidance helped us maneuver through many houses and even steered me off a new home construction that I liked a lot but she could see that the quality was not there and I am so glad we listened to her and waited until we found "the one". We would personally recommend Colleen to anyone looking to buy or sell a house because she will put you first and do what's best for you. We are considering future real estate endeavors and our go to realtor will always be Colleen without a doubt". P.S. - I could keep writing about you because that's how amazing you were and once again thank you for being awesome and the best!Roshan & Rachael
We can't say enough good things about Colleen. Before choosing Colleen, we met with 2 other realtors. The other realtors were pushy or just didn't seem to understand what we were looking for in a house. The minute we met Colleen, we knew she was the right realtor for us. Immediately, you can tell that she is experienced and knows what she is talking about. She is quick to respond to emails, texts and calls--no matter what time of day or night. Our buying process became difficult with negotiations & repairs. Colleen basically had to do the job of the other agent in order to make sure we were able to close on time. She went above and beyond! She always provided sound advice and treated us with respect. Most importantly, we have an infant and she was able to work around our crazy work and nap schedules! Colleen helped us find the perfect house! We would recommend her and her team in a second.
It is our pleasure to let you know the following:Working with Colleen was absolutely a fantastic experience from the moment we first contacted her until the transaction came to a highly successful close! Colleen gave us great advice regarding getting the property ready to list and show and pricing the property. She was available every time we needed her including on New Year's Day and after normal work hours. She went above and beyond in all areas to sell our property for our desired price and timeframe. Even after the property was under contract, she was very instrumental in making sure it closed according to schedule. In addition to her invaluable knowledge and work ethic, she is one of the nicest people you could ever want to have as a partner in selling your home. We feel very grateful that we had the good fortune to have Colleen be our agent and now our friend!I wish Colleen could list our big house in Orlando that we are selling now. I can't find another Colleen in Orlando so we didn't list it yet! WE are spoiled!We are truly grateful and feel very lucky to have met and worked with Colleen and your team! Best Regards, Deb and Chris
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Coleen. We appreciated her determination to sell our house as quickly as possible. She was responsive & professional through the entire process and will definitely use Coleen again! Thanks so much,Kelly
Colleen was an incredibly articulate and straightforward agent that was always positive and a pleasure to work with. Her patience and attention to the details that were most important to us made the home buying experience much less stressful. She was by our side every step of the way ensuring that we did not make any decisions that were not in keeping with the best interests of our family as well as ensure that our investment would be marketable in the future when the time comes to sell. Without question, we will go out of our way to use her again in the future if/when we are prepared to sell our home and search for a new one. Her positive attitude and candid feedback earned a trust and friendship that I have not experienced in any of my previous times I’ve bought a home.

Colleen Blatz went above and beyond the call of duty to help get our house sold. She is professional, courteous, has attention to detail, client focused and has her clients focus best interest on her mind. Her knowledge & expertise in real estate, the market, along with her superb negotiation left me with a very positive impression of her. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.
Colleen is an exceptional agent who demonstrated the utmost professionalism and integrity when faced with any challenge. As an out of state homeowner there were alot of details she handled without hesitation. She was always available and very patient with closing the deal. Most importantly she kept me grounded and focsued when I was ready to jump ship. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Colleen Blatz's passion for real estate coupled with her knowledge of the market put us in the perfect home! She has years of experience and was able to negotiate a great deal. She was always available and willing to go the extra mile. As we prepared to move to North Carolina Colleen made sure every detail was covered and the process couldn't have been smoother!
Colleen Blatz is an exceptional real estate agent. After meeting with me and my husband , she understood exactly what wee were looking for and went above and beyond the call of duty to show only those properties that matched our needs. She followed through with everything that had to be done to ensure that the purchase of our home went smoothly and was stress-free. This has been a tremendous help to us as out of state buyers. I have the highest regard for Colleen both professionally and personally and would recommend her to any persepctive home buyer or seller.
Colleen was great to work with when my husband & I bought our 1st home. She acquired an excelelnt sense of what we were looking for in a house, while keeping in mind our budget. She was also patient with us through all our questions and decision making. She offered good advice and suggestions to us as new home buyers. We have enjoyed working with Colleen and have recommended her to friends and family members. We are now working with her again to purchase another property.
It was a pleasure working with Colleen when I purchased my new home. I found her to be knowledgable, efficient and always ready to do wheatever neccessary to get just what I needed! If you are looking for a realtor that will work hard for you, Colleen is your person!

Colleen was terrific! Warm, friendly, & knowledgeable. She was always available and responded immediately to email questions. She was patient as we looked at places for several months. She was easy to work with, and we'd recommend her to other home buyers.

After moving out of state, I was nervous about selling my condo in Cary, particularly because I was 1,000 miles away. I needed a realtor I could trust. I found that and so much more in Colleen Blatz! Colleen is amazing! She's very knowledgeable about the process and kept me informed. She followed up on every lead and sold my unit within weeks! Her fantastic negotiating skills, attention to detail, and dedication resulted in my home selling at the highest price of all comparable homes in my area! I am overjoyed! I would definitely recommend Colleen Blatz to anyone in the market to buy or sell real estate!
Earl and Michelle Dancy
We were looking for a nice home in a great neighborhood. When a house became available Colleen contacted us and we fell in love with the home. We are not only friends but neighbors. She's amazing!
Colleen was very accomodating to my specific requests when searching for a new home and was able to find a place that was perfect for me when no other realtors I had tried could. She also went out of her way to help make the entire process easier for me, especially relating to transition dates and closing.
"I interviewed many agents through friendships, through networking and through unsolicited requests Most seemed qualified and capable. I selected Colleen not just because she was the most knowledgable of the neighborhood and market and brutally honest, but for her ability to get the job done. I had no idea how or where or when to begin or what to do to sell a house after raising three boys for 15 years in the house. Make no mistake, its a project and Colleen isn't an agent, she is a project manager.Colleen engaged at the first meeting, not on negotiation fees but on understanding my timeframes and then reviewing my house. I had many different views on what i needed to change, stage and fix. Some agents said nothing, some said everything. For instance, Do I paint all rooms, even one that is just painted? What is the new neutral color? Do I keep or stage furniture? Wall hangings? Cabinets? Do I need to replace countertops? Colleen put a detailed plan together for me on what has to be done and what does not. She is not afraid to confront you on hard decisions. Most importantly, she set a mutual timeline to get onto the market at the right time and we laid out a biweekly to do list over five months. Colleen checked in weekly and provided the right resources and project management to keep the project on track such that we hit the early spring deadline. Secondly, the new game in selling is the pictures (Zillow, Trulia) Now, its all about the pictures. Colleen engaged interior design help and a professional (big time) photographic company and spent days getting the staging perfect. The best testament to her investment that she made and the corresponding results was a quote from one of my boys "Dad, this is more amazing than HGTV - this isn't our house!"Third, the project doesn't end at a signed contract. Colleen's role changed and she rode herd on the contractors (repairs from inspection), appraisers, finance companies, banks, buyer's agent, lawyers, etc. - always on top of me daily to ensure closing is a non-event. In the end, we sold in three days wth multiple offers for more than asking price and more than what all interviewed agents said would be the total max, on a good day. And we came in 56% of budget on repair/staging/moving/cleaning costs and finally closed 1 month earlier than my best case scenario and both the buyer and seller are very happy." Kudos Colleen. Feel free to contact me for any details. -- Tom Tisdale
Colleen was great!!! Very professional!!!
Colleen sold two properties for me in Raleigh in less than 18 months. I am an overextended professional who was forced to relocate. My growing business is my first priority, leaving limited time for preparing my home of 10 years to be "move in ready" or overseeing the punch list items of a new construction project that I would never occupy. Colleen truly took charge of the details. She arranged contractors, picked out paint colors, and even staged my house with beautiful items from her own home. She answered every call, email and text and eliminated the stress of selling two houses and moving to a new city. When I told her that she "God sent", I meant it.
