By: Marlene Colleen and her team are amazing. They will go out of their way to make sure their clients are well taken care of, they answered all of our questions quickly and got us a great offer for our house. They are all very professional and Colleen has a great personality and loads of experience. You won’t be disappointed!
By: Christine Incredible incredible service. I cannot say enough about Colleen Lyle Real Estate. The service, professionalism, the speed and the support were all above and beyond what I had imagined could be possible! Will definitely recommend and use this team again.
By: Julie I cannot say enough nice things about the team. Colleen was very friendly and hands on. She provided all the information we needed when we were deciding on next steps for our home. Carley was always readily available by phone, text or email for all my inquiries. She was diligent in understanding exactly what my needs were for my vision of the "perfect" home; which wasn't easy in this tough buyers market. Together we dealt with the disappointment of being outbid a couple of times and the encouragement to keep on looking and the pure elation of finding "the one". She was a great sounding board for thoughts on all the listings as we walked thru and filtered them until I found the perfect one. I am so pleased to have chosen your team! Wondeful experience from start to finish. One truly happy customer.
By: Kenneth This is our second time using Colleen Lyle Real Estate Inc. and we are even more impressed this time. They are a competence and professional team with a desire to ensure the client is fully informed of the process from start to finish. This sale was unique as we were selling a rental property to the current tenant. We had agreed on a price and thought we just needed someone to draw up the papers. The Colleen Lyle Real Estate Team did more than that! They were able to handle both sides of the deal, us and the buyer. This helped the process and provided our now ex-tenant peace of mind not having to find a Real Estate agent. Like any sale there were some hurdle and hiccups and we were able to count on Colleen Lyle Real Estate to guide us and provide answers to all our questions and concerns. Additionally, they provided us a recommendation for a lawyer which I must say was excellent. It is clear to see that Colleen Lyle Real Estate is a quality organization with integrity and they attract and promote like-minded businesses. We whole heartedly endorse the use of their services.
By: Kerry Working with Colleen and her team was wonderful! I can honestly say that without them we would still be looking for our dream home. Thank you so much!
By: Josee Colleen and her wonderful team were recommended to us for our real estate needs by a friend. They provided excellent service from the beginning of the process of buying our forever home to then selling our current home for more money than we ever thought possible. Most important to us, Bryan and Colleen were always honest about each property we saw and were always available to answer our many questions. We truly felt like they had our family’s best interest at heart. Being a buyer (and a seller) in today’s unpredictable real estate market can be very overwhelming. Bryan and Colleen ensured the biggest transactions of our lives were seamless and we are forever grateful for their help. In the future, if we ever decide to move, we will definitely turn to Colleen and her team again. We will also not hesitate to recommend them to our family and friends.
By: Emma Bryan was fantastic with helping us to find a perfect home to rent. He went above and beyond to find the right place for us and put up with us changing our minds and just generally being really picky! Would highly recommend Colleen Lyle and we will definitely use them again in the future.
By: Peyman I contacted Joey from the Colleen Lyle Real Estate Team to get information and ask questions about buying a new home and each time he patiently and accurately responded to my questions. He is an experienced agent and is not afraid of giving you the tips and tricks of this business! I was on the market to buy from a builder but Joey helped me anyways without any financial expectations. I would go back to him for purchasing my next home.
By: Crystal If you are looking for a professional, knowledgeable and responsive broker, look no further. Colleen and her team are all of the above! My house sold in under a week above asking, with multiple offers! They will guide you every step of the way. I highly recommend you contact Colleen for any and all of your real estate needs so you too can experience what it is like to be be there #1 priority!! #knowingthatyouareour#1priority #5stars
By: Etienne It was a pleasure dealing with Colleen and her team. They are consummate professionals when it comes to selling homes. I strongly recommend them if you are in the market of selling your residence.
By: Sebastian Great agents for both buying and selling. Attention to detail and dedication to their client helped with the listing of our current place. Bryan was really knowledgeable and accommodating in helping us view properties that were just listed and find a new place to move into. Would hire them again if we ever need to move in the future.
By: Pierre It has been a true pleasure working with Colleen Lyle and her team. In my opinion They are by far the most professional and competent realtors in their field. It is without hesitation that I recommend them to anyone seeking to buy or sell their home.
By: Jenn Bryan was so very helpful in helping me find the right home. I always felt like his only client even though I know he had others. Thanks again Bryan!
By: Christine We are extemely happy with the results of having worked with Colleen Lyle and team. Attention to detail, highly tuned in to our needs, prompt correspondence, very personable, and a superb marketing strategy. From initial meetings, showings for the home we wanted, to selling our current home including staging, pictures and video, the open house, every step was top notch. We are so pleased with the end result, both with the next home that we have purchased, and the one we sold. Sold in 3 days - amazing!
By: Rob and Meggan We are absolutely blown away by Colleen Lyle and her entire team! What a huge blessing to work with people of this caliber. They met us exactly where we were at, looked out for our best interests, cheered us on the whole time, and had a brilliant strategy to get us a bidding war (which we did). The video they put together was so professional and it blew everyone away. We sold for well over asking and it all happened exactly how she told us it would. I'd hire Colleen and her team again in a second!
By: Wendy Let me start at the beginning. I was killing time by looking at homes that were on the market. Thinking that maybe, with must husband retiring, that maybe we should think of downsizing. Never really thinking of moving from our home of 30+ years, anytime soon. During my peeking at homes, Bryan Giffen from ”ColleenLyle Real Estate” popped up continually, asking what we looking for, where. All the typical questions....I kept saying I was just peaking, but Bryan was persistent ( in a good way). He was able to see where, what I was looking at. Byran sent me homes to look at, which was fine until I saw the perfect home. Now that I found it, I had the hardest job to do!!! CONVINCE my husband that maybe it was time to downsize. He was really not interested, since he was about to retire. Well as you can guess, one thing led to another. Bryan and Colleen ended talking to us on how they would sell our home, through pictures, video, open house and closed offers for a week. Now we needed to buy our home first, then ours went on the market, after the staging. As you know the worst part about selling in those showings... we thought they’d never stop. Thanks to Bryans expertise and patience, we sold our home of 30+ years, and are waiting to move into our new home. We can't stay enough about Bryan and ”ColleenLyle Real Estate.” If Bryan hadn't kept showing me homes while I was just peaking we would never have Sold/Bought our new home. Thank you for your Excellent Service.
By: Samo Colleen and her team, recently sold our house in Stittsville. If your looking for a team that cares, listens and goes above and beyond then look no further. They truly care for you and what you are looking. Thank you again for your hard work and selling our home in 5 days!
By: Carol Colleen was fantastic. She sold my house in 10 days. She was always there to answer questions when I needed her. She worked really hard. Will use her again should the need arise.
By: Josie Excellent work! Found us a house which was exactly what we were looking for and was totally unexpected. She also coordinated an amazing sale for both parties. Couldn’t be happier!
By: David Colleen and her team are fantastic! They have been incredibly knowledgeable and responsive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Colleen as an agent...
By: Solange We have nothing but praise for Joey and Colleen of Colleen Lyle Real Estate Inc. We were new to the area when we dealt with Joey in buying real estate. We actually picked their agency at random and never regretted our decision. Joey is a very knowledgeable real estate agent. Very personable and pleasant to deal with. He was always ready to show us properties and we did put him through looking at many. We highly recommend dealing with their agency and we certainly would use their services in future, if ever needed.
By: Heather and Richard Sold in a day! Downsizing, in and of itself, can be a stress-filled time. We were very fortunate to have known about Colleen Lyle’s expertise and to have decided to have her list our home when that time came. We couldn’t have been happier with her services or the services provided by those who work with her. Compassion, flexibility, honesty, integrity, and commitment are only a few of the corporate values held by this brokerage and its employees. Wonderful and painless for us, and we can’t thank Colleen enough for helping us make this transition.
By: Robby Hard working and committed to getting the best result possible. We felt really taken care of and would definitely recommend them to others!
By: Katherine The Colleen Lyle Real Estate team has gone above and beyond in making our real estate dreams come true. This is our second time buying a house, and first time selling, with Colleen guiding us through the whole process. Each time, she and her team have made the process easy. She has always made sure that we were fully informed about the properties we were interested in, she made sure we were comfortable with our offers, and she made sure to know our family, our style and what we wanted. Very quickly, she curated the properties that would suit us best, and was able to close the deal on the perfect property for us, comfortably within our budget in the middle of a bidding war. No easy feat in such a hot market! When it came to selling our home, she helped us with a stager, she set a great price (based on the comps), made sure she had all the information on our house, and sold within 4 days with 35k over asking (10 offers). The process was seamless, stress-free, easy, exciting and fun! I recommend Colleen Lyle and her team to anyone who is in the market, looking to buy or sell. They really make it easy and comfortable for the home owners (and home owners-to be).
By: Melanie Colleen was amazing. I was looking for a rental 2 years ago to get out of a bad neighbor hood. when no one else responded Colleen stepped in and helped me find a beautiful home for me and my 2 kids in my budget.
By: Chany Colleen and Joey are an amazing team and really go above and beyond from start to finish to help you through the process and get you into the home you want! They know the market very well, are transparent about market conditions without causing any pressure, and overall were fabulous to work with! I highly recommend them and I would use them again in a heartbeat!
By: George Colleen is very knowledgeable and cares about her clients. Would highly recommend!
By: Karen Working with the Colleen Lyle real estate team has been an excellent experience. We are busy people with a little one at home, and Colleen and Joey have helped us every step of the way. They have provided excellent guidance and advice and noticed details that we would never have thought of. From the first meeting over coffee, finding our dream home, and selling our current home, the team have been accessible and have been able to answer all of our questions and concerns. A life event that could have been extremely stressful has turned into an wonderful adventure. And now our family gets to live in our dream home! We can't recommend them enough.
By: Ken Colleen Lyle and her team were very professional in every aspect of selling our home. We will definitely recommend her to family and friends.
By: Amy We are so happy we chose Colleen and her team to both buy our new home and sell our current home. She was patient and responsive to our needs every step of the way and really took the time to understand what we were looking for. She only made promises she could keep and we felt like we got the best information and advice when making decisions. For two people who were apprehensive about the process, we couldn’t have picked a better team to put our minds at ease! Will certainly use again and recommend.
By: Ali I've been working with Colleen Lyle and her team for several years now and both from a professional perspective and personally, I truly believe they are extremely well knowledged in the Real Estate market. They will do their utmost to serve their client, whether it be for buyers, sellers or investors. With Colleen Lyle, you can't go wrong!
By: Ofer Both Joey and Colleen have done a great job preparing our home for sell. From professional photos/videos to good recommendations, timing of open home and communication with regards to possible showing of our home. Same goes for responding to our requests to see other homes. Thank you Joey and Colleen! looking forward to working with you again in the future!
By: Ronald Dunbar Inspections interact with real estate agents every day. It is relaxing dealing with Colleen, Joey and the rest of the team. They are professional and caring and are at the top of their class. Congratulations.
By: Karen Buying a house recently, we were very fortunate to have had Mr. Joey Grimm as our real estate agent. He is dependable, hard-working, knowledgeable, and competent. Equally important, he has excellent listening skills and is friendly, polite, and empathetic.
By: Andrew As a first time home buyer, Joey and team was a great help and a pleasure to work with, I would recommend, and will. Thanks again! Cheers!
By: Amanda Very impressed as a first-time homebuyer. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
By: Tamara Colleen, Joey and their team, were AMAZING. We felt very supported. We had a unique situation and the team were very understanding and patient with our needs. They also had great communication and transparency.
By: Stephanie We cannot thank Colleen and Joey enough for all of the hard work they put in to sell our home. They work so hard and will not quit until the end goal is achieved. We are so grateful to them and have them to thank for finding our family our perfect home! I would highly recommend their team to anyone buying or selling. Thanks again Colleen and Joey!
By: Rachel Working with Joey and Colleen was a great experience! They are very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods in and around Ottawa and were keen to find the perfect house for us. After one offer fell through, they jumped right back up to the challenge of finding us our perfect family home. I highly recommend them!
By: M Dumont I had a chance to work with Joey and his team. He was very prompt, courteous, accommodating and professional. These are qualities that are important, especially when situations can be stressful, ours was handled with care. Thank you Joey.
By: Tracey Selling a home can be such a stressful event, especially when you have lived in it for decades! Colleen and her team were amazing to work with and made this very simple for me. They provided professional and courteous help every step of the way. From the superb advice on every detail, to the very professional video shot, right through to the quick responses and feedback from their wonderful client care staff. I very highly recommend this team to everyone. "Integrity" and then some! Thank you sincerely to Colleen, Joey and Courtney for reminding me why I chose you!
By: Z Nafar We interviewed several top Ottawa real estate teams before hiring Coleen and we were impressed from the very first meeting. Her attention to details, wealth of information and professionalism caught our eyes and we are glad we chose her to sell our income property. Colleen and her team worked tirelessly and meticulously with us and sold our house within days and negotiated on our behalf to get us top dollar. I would not use any other realtor and will refer friends and family.
By: Chokri Joey helped us to buy our first condo. He was always available, reachable, helpful and professional. He kept contact with as and answered all our inquiries in real time.
Do not hesitate to deal with his office, they are professional.
By: Cathy Excellent team! Aggressive on the job, and get the deal done!
By: Beryl Colleen and her team made a difficult situation quick and painless... our house was sold quickly... keeping our best interest at heart. Thanks so much.
By: Neil and Leslie We met Joey Grimm when we called about a condo that interested us. He quickly provided us with a list of similar properties for comparison purposes. We liked his low key practical approach, helped us narrow down what would suit us, and always could provide objective pros and cons of properties we viewed. He made himself available, sometimes on short notice, when an interesting property came on the market. Even after acceptance of our offer, he assisted in reminding us of various requirements and deadlines to manage the stress of our purchase. We have no hesitation in recommending Joey and this team.
By: Magda Thank you Joey! It was a pleasure to work with you and your Team! Memorable and very happy experience. I especially appreciate positive and encouraging attitude while dealing with unexpected amendments and time pressure. You and your Team made me feel that buying my home was very important to you, and although you represented the seller, you took on double representation with high ethics and personal commitment. Thank you!
By: Rosa Lee My husband and I sold and purchased our Dream home with ease. Colleen and her team took care of all the details and we trusted them each step of the way. I'm so grateful to be in my house- a place where I can call home and grow my family. Thank you again!
By: Nicole Positive experience. I appreciated Joey's attention to what I was looking for in a home. I will go back to them for my next home purchase. Keep up the good work!
By: Rosa and Mathew Oh heyyyy!! Our home is officially SOLD!! We are so excited for our next move and we have so much to be thankful for. Huge shout out to our agent, Colleen Lyle, for her effort and amazing work-sold in 3 days and over asking!
By: Linda Colleen totally impressed us when we first met her. She presented herself as being very efficient, totally honest and showed us she had the strong desire to work with us and get our house sold. She explained her work ethics and started working for us and with us immediately. If we needed anything, her team was there to answer questions and help us. We would recommend Colleen to anyone wanting to sell their home. Going through a sale can be very stressful but as soon as we signed on with Colleen and her team, we felt confident that our house would be sold quickly and with no worries or stress for us.
By: Bruce and Kate Thank you, Colleen, for all of your efforts in finding us a new home. We appreciate how you kept our wishes in mind since meeting you in October, then informing us when a suitable house became available. You guided us carefully through the buying process, leading us to consider the market value of the home we wanted, helped us realize a suitable first offer, then 'held our hand" through counter offers until we and the seller reached an agreement. Your knowledge and advice on the steps in buying was invaluable. We particularly appreciated that you worked hard for US, to reach a realistic price. As the proud owners of a home we are delighted to own, we commend you for your tenacity on our behalf, your advice and your overall hard work and kindness .... especially shown during your car accident in a snowstorm!! To adapt a quote from the US postal service, "Neither snow nor sleet nor hail shall stop the US mail [Colleen!] from delivery [of documents]."
By: Hany There can be no doubt in Colleen's capacity to place her client's needs at the top of her priority list. Working with Colleen to purchase my home was an excellent experience. She went to great lengths to learn about my needs with great attention to detail and with every home we visited it became more evident she understood exactly what I was looking for, until she found the house that was perfect. I would recommend Colleen and would gladly work with her in the future.
By: Marie and Paul We were very pleased to have Colleen as a Realtor. She always made us truly feel we were her number one priority when dealing with the sale of our home. We would recommend that any one selling use her services. She is very professional and informative. She kept us appraised of any changes that came up. Well done Colleen and thank you for all the hard work!!!
By: Shawn My business partner and I met Colleen at an open house in the Spring of 2011. Our brief experience led us to select her as our real estate agent. Since then, Colleen has served us with exceptional service and has never let anything slip through the cracks. We have referred her to friends and family and will definitely be using her services in the future.
By: Stewart and Joy In life you meet a few people who love their job and provide the something extra that makes the experience of working with them enjoyable. Colleen is one of those rare people. Colleen was referred to us be a good friend and from the start she provided the advice and guidance required to make our home purchase go smoothly. Being in the military and moving many times over the years I have had both bad and good experiences but this one will go down as the best one yet. Colleen stuck with us as we learned about the Ottawa market and helped us to develop a sense of where we would finally fit in. She managed to keep up with us every step of the way arranging showings at the last minute, informing where a house we were interested in would fail to meet our needs, and providing us with new listing that would meet our needs. Even after we found the perfect house she was there through all the inspections, offers and counteroffers providing expert advice and counsel. To top it all off she hosted our house warming party. I would whole heartily recommend her to friends and family.
By: Susan and Chris We weren't planning on selling our house and buying a new one but the one house that we loved came up for sale and we didn't want to pass up the opportunity. It wasn't great timing to be selling: the summer was drawing to a close and it was back to school time. We had the added stress of needing to sell quickly in order to proceed with the purchase of our dream home. Colleen's name was given to us by some friends who had used her when they were house-hunting and spoke her of her tireless energy. We interviewed two other agents and then Colleen. She wasn't off our driveway before we called her back in to sign her; we were that impressed with her presentation! What impressed us most in our initial meeting with her was her obvious passion for selling houses, her knowledge of the market and her comprehensive plan to sell our house. She had definitely done her homework before our meeting. We were also convinced of that tireless energy of which our friends spoke. Everything we saw in our first meeting with Colleen came to fruition. She had her stager at our house the following day, we had a weekend to do our part, then her photographer came in, the sign went up, and we were on the market! Our first offer came in the first day we were listed. Colleen navigated the dealing with confidence and ease and what could have been a series of complicated transactions went off without a hitch. We are now happily living in our dream home. We won't hesitate to recommend Colleen to anyone buying or selling a home.
By: B. Dundon As a military family, we typically have one week in which to find and buy a house. Colleen dedicated her time to us, listened to our needs and helped us find the perfect house in a wonderful neighborhood. Her negotiating skills were exemplary and won us the house at a price $5000 lower than we even thought possible. We would highly recommend Colleen to any of our colleagues and friends and will without a doubt enlist her expertise when it is time for us to move again!
By: Danny and Veronica As first time home buyers, we were very inexperience and nervous. We heard about how real estate agents can be very aggressive and quite intimidating but then we met Colleen. She was so friendly and never pressured us in the slightest. She was definitely the nicest real estate agent we have ever met. Colleen took the time to explain the steps of buying a home with us and never rushed us into things. Colleen even brought us several different homes in order to show us what to look for when buying a home. We learned so much during the process and it was a great experience buying our first home with Colleen. We would absolutely recommend Colleen to anybody looking to sell or buy a home.
By: Gabriel I'm one happy buyer! I had the good fortune to meet Colleen after finally becoming committed about buying my first home. I was immediately impressed by her expertise and energy. It's clear that she enjoys matching people with the right house. From the first viewing, to the last signature on the purchase, I appreciated Colleen's insight, promptness, and accommodations to my schedule. Most of all, I appreciated her ability to balance between the buyer and seller's wishes so that everyone is happy at the end of the day. I would highly recommend Colleen to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. When I'm ready for my next income property, I definitely want her on my team.
By: Anonymous Everything we saw in our first meeting with Colleen came to fruition. She had her stager at our house the following day, we had a weekend to do our part, then her photographer came in, the sign went up, and we were on the market! Our first offer came in the first day we were listed. Colleen navigated the dealing with confidence and ease and what could have been a series of complicated transactions went off without a hitch.
By: Bev I had the pleasure of working with Colleen when she sold my house. In a lackluster market with many competitively priced houses in my area, Colleen proved to be a highly knowledgeable, motivated, and customer oriented Realtor. She impressed me from our first meeting and didn’t waiver once. She brought a positive energy and drive as she focused on selling my house. She was always reachable, answered my questions clearly, and ensured that I understood every step of the house selling process. Colleen is a winner. I highly recommend her.
By: Chantal I would highly recommend and will recommend Colleen Lyle to everyone I know that will sell or anyone looking to buy. She was beyond amazing and made our entire selling experience such an easy and smooth ride. She is very professional and takes the time to work with you to ensure that all of your needs are met. You will always be her number one priority. She is super committed and passionate and super hardworking. I would strongly recommend her to anyone in a heart beat and will be using and working with her in the future.
By: Janine Colleen Lyle and her team were definitely the right fit for us. They were honest, hard working, and not afraid to be tough when negotiating time came. It’s certainly nice to have a team that is not only motivated and competent in their field, but very personable at the same time. We would not hesitate to recommend the Colleen Lyle Real Estate Team to anyone for their real estate needs!
By: Renee It was great working with Colleen, she's very passionate and knowledgeable about what she does! She sold our house in 6 days and we couldn't be happier!
By: Brett Joey took the stress and worry out of finding a new place and was able to locate exactly what I was looking for, quickly and professionally. I would wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone looking to rent or buy in the Ottawa area.
By: Janine & Aaron Colleen, Joey & Christine are an amazing team. Colleen sold our home essentially in 2 days, and went well above and beyond in that regard. Joey spent countless hours helping us to find our dream home, and Christine answered every single question we had along the way. We can't thank them enough for everything they did for us, and we'd highly recommend their services to anyone selling and/or purchasing a home.
By: Ann Smith Hi, just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited!
