“My wife Lindsay and I contacted Colin 2 years ago, as we began to discuss the possibility of moving to a single home to accommodate the family we hoped to have.
Colin went through the home, discussed our budget and our wishes immediately. Although we weren’t actively looking at that time Colin kept in contact, particularly when coming across something he thought suited our needs and wants. When we had a desire to look at a property, he was always willing to do so. We appreciated his flexibility, but also his opinion when it came homes that caught our eye.
His attentiveness and willingness to accommodate our needs and schedule would not hold more true than the day we found the house for us. We contacted Colin very early one Saturday morning. He made arrangements to see the property within hours (prior to the Open House that was to take place the next day), and took us through with a fine tooth comb. As we were discussing putting an offer in my wife went into labour. Colin’s only concern was for Lindsay, but I asked if we could go forward with an offer. Colin was very patient, but understanding the market, he knew the house would not last at the price and location. He got everything together and came to the hospital multiple times to meet with me (in the waiting room).
Colin was extremely helpful in listing our property to sell. He identified areas we should improve. It was advice we took and believe it helped greatly. Colin knew the stress of trying to sell when already committing to a new home, but always did his best to calm us. He was realistic but optimistic. In the end, all went according to plan. We are extremely happy in our new home with our family.
Colin was accommodating, knowledgeable and very understanding. Although he was never shy to share his thoughts with us, he never pressured us. Colin would often say, ‘This is the biggest financial decision you will make. You have to be happy with your decision.’
I would highly recommend Colin Zappia to anyone selling or buying a home.”
