Colleen Bentz is an awesome realtor. We used her for the sale of our El Dorado Hills house in May of 2017. We are experienced sellers, but Colleen's financial background enabled her to understand transactions far better than any other agent we have encountered. Her use of technology, and her ability to set realistic goals were a wonderful help to us. Her office support is great, too.

Colleen is a good listener and she thoughtfully answered all of our questions. She remained positive throughout the entire experience. We highly recommend Colleen to anyone who is considering buying or selling a house.

She showed great understanding of the process and our needs. Colleen displayed utmost professionalism and gave us good advice and suggestions.i know that it was challenging for her to have to deal with three owners living in three different cities. But she rose to the challenge and was able to meet our expectations.

I previously had the pleasure of purchasing a property with Colleen's help. When it came time to sell a co-owned rental property, Colleen was the agent for me. She was quick to respond to any questions I had, and even helped with ideas for preparing the property for sale. The next time I am in the market to buy or sell, I will definitely call her!

We hired Colleen to sell our Sacramento house while living in the eastern USA. The house sold in 2 months. Colleen interfaced with us in every regard. There is no way we could have managed this sale without her. Colleen picked up more than her share of house marketing duties, going out of her way to meet subs for repairs and other property work. We had a new roof put on, cement work, full interior painting and plumbing, to name a few. Colleen met the subs, let them in and stayed with following through in all details related to supervising terms and completion. Colleen held open houses at generous intervals and immediately returned feedback to us. Colleen is genuine, knowledgable and honest. Our house marketing took skill due to complicating circumstances AND our house sold for what we wanted in 2 months time. Completely happy and blessed that Colleen has the skill and dedication to have worked as hard as she did with representing us and our house.

Colleen is very organized and has in depth knowledge and expertise on both the process and local real estate. She is very patient when it comes to showing houses and providing organized information about every listing visited. She represented us as buyers agent and always provided a good estimate of winning bid. In addition, Colleen is very easy to work with and is good in negotiating skills to create a win-win situation.

Buying a home can be stressful, but Colleen was there to help every step of the way. She is the ultimate professional; knowledgable and patient. In fact, I purchased the first home she showed me although I saw many, many homes over a two month search.

Colleen is an honest and sincere person who ensured I was truly happy with my new home. I have already recommended her to a family member!

We recently bought our first home in Folsom, CA. It was great working with Colleen and she made the whole home-buying process worry-free and memorable for us. The best part of working with Colleen was that she diligently looked for homes based on our needs in and around Folsom with the same spirit from day one until we found our dream home. She was there with us at every step, helping us understand the process and providing valuable references and contacts who provided great service and helped us close escrow quickly.

Colleen always made herself available to address any questions or concerns we had about the houses we looked at or the process itself anytime. We'd definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a enthusiastic, resourceful and overall awesome real estate agent in the area.

It was in our very first meeting itself that we were impressed with Colleen. She had a really nice folder that held what a sample contract and in which we could store details of all the houses we would be visiting. Since we were first time home buyers, she went over the entire process with us in detail and took good note of our taste and preferences. From there on in every meeting she researched and came prepared with details of the houses we were visiting - taxes, Melloo Roos, history of ownership, why the house was being sold etc. Outside of our meetings, she was readily available for guidance over phone, email and text. She encouraged us to ask questions and ensured that we understood the intricacies and nuances of the home buying process. She never rushed us and always made us feel like we were her only clients :) . It is for these reasons why I feel Colleen is an excellent realtor and just as our friends did, we highly recommend as a realtor.

We really did not understand all the paperwork and process of buying a house. Colleen was GREAT !! She was patient with us and explained everything we needed to know. It was great to have someone we felt was truly on our side and represented us like family. Her knowledge of the local area is amazing and every thing was shared with us.
We highly recommend Colleen Bentz !!! Thanks for your great service !!

Colleen is an amazing agent! She simultaneously is very sweet and easy to work with, while also being persistent and firm when she needs to be to make sure things keep moving. We sold our house in a week, and she worked hard to make sure all of the steps in the process went smoothly. We had a few hiccups at the very end of escrow, and Colleen did everything she could to make sure we closed as soon as possible. When we ended up being 2 days late due to purchaser's paperwork issues, Colleen promptly negotiated for us to not have to pay back rent for the few days of overlap while moving, due to the inconvenience. Even the sales agent for our new house commented on how great Colleen is! I would highly recommend her to friends and family!

I went to the mailbox area at my apartment and saw a flyer there. As I took the flyer, I meet up with Colleen and right off the bat I know she is pretty good. I got lucky that I ended up with a wonderful person who cares for me. I thank Colleen for all that she did for me and I feel better now that if I have realtor to help me one day. I would recommend her to my loved ones because I know she has a big heart. Thanks you Colleen for helping me with my first home!

We were so pleased by the tremendous job that Colleen Bentz did for us. She was very gracious and professional through out the entire process.

We would definitely recommend her to others and would not hesitate to use her services in the future.
