COLLEEN BLISS, REALTOR®

As a real estate professional, my strength and success have come from knowing the Tri-Valley market, listening to customer needs, delivering the right solution, and providing unique insight, perspective, and support. My focus and attention are on earning trust, serving your needs, and exceeding your expectations. My 25+ years of business have fine-tuned my skills in navigating complex issues including the art of negotiation. I believe identifying needs, analyzing options, monitoring details, and building trust in relationships are keys to a successful business.

After all, we are all navigating and negotiating issues every day, right? Even when I'm playing tennis or flying, I am practicing my negotiating skills. I hope to prove my negotiating skills to you in selling or buying your home.

We have bought and sold 5 homes in our 30-year marriage and working with Colleen had to have been the easiest by far. Colleen stood by our side every step of the transaction with a sense of calmness and focus which was extremely reassuring. She always did her homework and was very knowledgeable and made sure that she gave us the most up-to-date and correct information. Every question or concern was handled with the utmost professionalism until she was absolutely sure everyone involved was completely satisfied. We had a couple of Open Homes and we always felt that Colleen represented us with a sense of sophistication and warmth that made potential buyers feel at ease. She also is very creative with staging your home to bring out all the highlights and also with the financial aspects of putting together the offer. Would we use Colleen again or highly recommend her? We would in a heartbeat!!

Colleen Bliss is a fantastic real estate agent. Colleen sold our >$3M home in Ruby Hill, successfully marketing the unique advantages of our home versus competitive homes on the market. And Colleen did far more than provide excellent sales and marketing. She identified the pre-sale areas of improvement, balancing any investment cost versus sales and pricing benefits, as well as providing contacts for capable and cost effective contractors. She wisely supported the negotiation of the sale, ensuring we did not pay for inspections or other requests that were not typically paid for by the seller. And she did this while making the buyers and buyers' agent feel comfortable with the process. Colleen continued her hard work after the sales contract was signed. As we had moved out-of-state, Colleen personally managed the elements needed to close based on the various inspection results, finding the most cost efficient methods to do so. As we had left our furniture to enable low cost staging, she handled the efforts to sell that furniture to multiple parties she found through her network and outside her network. She handled final clean-up prior to close of escrow, and all along the way helped the buyers too to make their upcoming acquisition seamless. In the end, we were able to sell our home ahead of others at a competitive price, and were then supported in extreme ways to ensure all the details that needed to be managed were done effectively and efficiently. We highly recommend Colleen!!!
