Nine years ago and again in 2014. We began the process without a clue what we wanted to buy, just knowing it was time to sell. Colleen helped us every step of the way on listing our home, as well as making sure we were able to purchase the perfect home for us. Once we had a contract to purchase, we then listed our home, thinking we might have two homes for a little while. David took such amazing photos and Colleen suggested a great price and we got an offer the same day we listed! We closed both homes the same day! I think the main thing is, when you work with David and Colleen, you feel as if you are their only clients and their top priority. They are patient, professional, knowledgeable, ethical and just plain nice!"
Our situation was difficult, because we were selling a home that we knew would be a “tough sell’ and the home we wanted was going to be difficult to find in our price range. When I met with David and Colleen, they were honest about our situation, yet knew they could take it on. And boy, did they! Our home sold in 12 days and we had to be in hurry in a to find the next one AND we had a beach trip planned, all within our short time frame. Not only did we find our “perfect” house within our budget, BUT we bought from the beach via FaceTime (you want to talk about trusting your realtor! J). We have been in the house almost a year now, and I absolutely ADORE my new home. It fits us perfectly. It was exactly what we wanted. We would recommend working with David and Colleen. I mean, think about it…it’s a two for one deal! With David’s awesome photography and videos and Colleen’s real estate knowledge, it’s a match made in Heaven. David and Colleen, thank you for everything you did for us. We love our home!"
She sold my house in record time at the price I wanted, despite a turbulent real estate market. Colleen kept me well informed with all the information I needed to know about the sale of my house and was always a phone call away. If you are in the market to sell or buy a home, I strongly recommend that you use Colleen Black as your Realtor."
They first helped us 8 years ago when we bought a home in Birmingham. Although it was our dream home, it was tangled up in a “short sell” situation. The Blacks took on the challenge without hesitation. Their knowledge and expertise in handling such a difficult transaction really impressed us. When we retired recently and decided to move back home to Baldwin County, we were pleased to learn they had opened an office in Fairhope. For the second time, our real estate needs were unique. We needed a property with two homes. And for the second time, the Black Team came through to help us get the perfect place. Since our move, two other family members have decided to move to Baldwin County. Of course we knew exactly which real estate agents to call."
Second, I tried the For Sale By Owner route. If I had just gone to them first, I would have been moving one year sooner. I have never seen two people work as hard to sell a house as these two worked. Thank you both for everything!"
You all went way beyond to help us sell this house. We were so impressed and overwhelmed by your dedication from day one."
I will definitely recommend The Black Team to anyone I know who needs to sell or buy. Again, my sincere appreciation!"
She was concise in explaining every aspect of the process, including communicating with me what was happening and why. Her friendly, knowledgeable approach made what can be a stressful process very easy and even enjoyable. But the best part was that it was sold within 72 hours of signing up with her – and my house sold for the asking price. I couldn’t have been happier!"
Colleen and David are professional real estate agents in the true sense of the word. They know exactly what to do, and when to do it. They guided us through each step, telling us the pros and cons of every situation. We trusted them implicitly because they did not try to sugar coat anything. They worked very hard for us from the very first visit to our home until the end. If you want real estate agents that exemplify integrity, choose Colleen and David. Colleen and David are really great people personally, but sellers want results first - and the Blacks know how to deliver!"
When we told you that we needed it sold in 45 days, we never dreamed that it could be a reality. You guys were both extremely thorough in executing a well thought out plan. My wife and I both are very impressed with all of your extra effort and out of the ordinary resources that you displayed. Thanks again."
You were so helpful and wonderful. We could not have asked for a better real estate agent."
They were willing to listen and understand what we wanted in selling our house. Colleen came to our home for the initial meeting and took her time answering any questions we had. Our house sold in a little over two weeks after we put it on the market and they made it seem easy. They use a number of ways to advertise and are very comfortable with email, texting, and electronic communication, which made it very convenient! I would, and HAVE, recommended them to people ready to sell or buy a home."
When they were working with us, they answered all our phone calls and every question we had. I call them “the people of great effort.” I have recommended them to all our friends who needed realty services, and no one was disappointed. We are still friends now, and we are sure that when ever we need any help, Colleen and David will do their best for us."
She is very knowledgeable and professional. We would recommend her to any of our friends or family interested in buying or selling a home."
In our situation, we were purchasing a home in Fairhope, AL, from across the country, which could have been an ordeal, but David and Colleen walked us through everything. Their experience and knowledge of the real estate market ensured we got the house we wanted at a fair price."
You were available to meet us at the house on numerous occasions, made the arrangements, coordinated schedules and generally made us feel like we were the only customer you were working with (I know that this was not the case - you are constantly juggling lots of deals). We appreciate your efforts and for helping making our only move in 42 (me)/31 (Deborah) years a pleasant experience."
They have great marketing skills for showing of your home and give feedback every time it is shown. I think they did a great job. I would for sure recommend The Black Team."
I always thought that buying a house would be too stressful, but with your help it turned out to be a joyful and positive experience. Your patience with me is very much appreciated. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know looking to buy or sell. Thank you so so much for everything."
Colleen is a professional Realtor. However, I believe she is more than a Realtor, because of her sincerity, friendliness, patience and integrity throughout the sale and months after the closing. I truly admire and respect Colleen Black!"
A friend who had her house listed with Colleen and David recommended them. We made the switch to the Black Team. We liked working with David and Colleen for several reasons. First, they are great at communicating with their clients. We like to be kept in the loop, and Colleen and David are excellent at this. We also feel they are great at marketing our property. Our showings increased exponentially when we switched. We closed on our house in less than six weeks after listing with them. They are friendly, yet aggressive, which is what you want in an agent. Choose Colleen and David. You won't regret it."
I told her my price range and what I wanted in my first home and where I wanted to live. When we would meet for our appointments, she was always on time and prepared. She had spec sheets on the neighborhood. She knew when the last house had sold in the neighborhood. She was prepared. By her being so prepared, it made my first home buying experience a very pleasant one. I was very happy with MY agent Colleen Black. So, if you are a potential home buyer, let Colleen take the worry out of looking for a home. Leave it to her!"
After a couple Open Houses on our own, only a few folks had even come by to see the house. Not quite the response we had expected. I was very impressed with how you marketed our home. I appreciated how we were kept in the loop about the house throughout the sale/marketing. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone we know looking to buy or sell. Thanks again!"
What a tremendous relief for us that we had someone who had our best interest at heart and that we could trust to dot all of the I's and cross all of the T's. David and Colleen went above and beyond our expectations and we would definitely recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home."
For someone we’ve never met, I have so much appreciation for you and what you have done to help us. I have already been spreading the word to family and friends in Alabama about you and your husband. Everyone has been so impressed with your marketing approach and your willingness to help out a stranger. Even though I know it must have been hard, you have truly made a difficult situation (our previous experience with a Realtor, selling of home, etc.) pleasant in working with you and your husband. Thank you for everything!"
They went above and beyond numerous times, always looking out for my best interests. They have a wonderful attitude, are on top of the technology curve, and are extremely responsive to all forms of communication (phone, text, email, etc.). I had numerous challenges in selling my home and I couldn't have overcome them without Colleen and David. I can't recommend them highly enough."
