Happy Clients

Hopefully you have come to my website becasue someone has recommended me to you. Other than meeting me directly I would think the best way to decide if you want me to be your Realtor would be to read the comments below. I always find it awkward to ask clients to write something about me - but they happily do so, and to a person they are heartfelt.

"Colin replies to calls and e-mails quickly anytime night or day!"

How to sum up such an energetic, determined realtor as Colin? His approach from the beginning was professional, dynamic and committed. He was there to facilitate us finding the house that was right for us, the house of our dreams. After a short period of looking, we found our house. My husband and I had talked about what we wanted; a yard, garden, a 20-minute bike ride to town, and a beautiful space to call our own. That’s exactly what we found with Colin.

Colin made the whole experience fun and educational. Colin has a great sense of humor, in addition to being informed on the ins and outs of houses.

Thank you Colin for your commitment to our vision and excellent service.

In the words of the Simpsons comic book guy, Colin is the “best realtor EVER!! – Jake Jones

The consummate professional!



Throughout the past twenty years we have bought and sold several homes and we have worked with a variety of realtors, but never have we experienced the professionalism and service that our realtor Colin Gareau provided.


We found ourselves in the stressful position of having to sell two homes and buy one that would accommodate our elderly parent. Colin managed to guide us through the market and sell both homes within 6 weeks. Throughout this difficult time, Colin was the consummate professional. He was extremely sensitive and responsive to our needs as clients.


Colin did an exceptional job at promoting our properties. We are certain that his thoughtful suggestions to help stage our house along with his excellent marketing strategies were the key to the quick sale of both of our homes.


During our negotiations Colin displayed integrity and honesty. His meticulous attention to detail with the legal documents made us feel very confident with the process.


Colin  Gareau went above and beyond the standard services of a realtor. You could not ask for a better agent and we would highly recommend him to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a property.

Colin was working for our best interests and not his own.

Real estate shopping can be very stressful, however having Colin Gareau as our agent helped make the process a lot more enjoyable. He was always professional, cheerful, informed, and willing to go to great lengths to do the legwork and research whenever necessary. He was the voice of reason when emotions ran high. We felt at all times that Colin was working for our best interests and not his own. 


    We enthusiastically recommend Colin to our family and friends and to anyone looking for an agent they can really trust.

We will work with him again in a heartbeat.

"If you are looking for a consummately professional, industrious and honest realtor who really cares about his clients needs, look no further than Colin Gareau.  We will work with him again in a heartbeat. We value his hard work in selling our previous property and could not be happier in our new home!”

He is extremely patient

I can recommend Colin Gareau without any reservations to clients looking for an excellent realtor.  Colin is extremely knowledgeable about Victoria and the local real estate market, in addition to having a keen eye when inspecting specific properties.   When a client is considering a specific property, he not only knows where to obtain information on a range of topics that may be of interest, such as impending development permits, but also puts in a tremendous amount of time tracking down this information to help a client make an informed decision.

Colin’s goal is not just to make a sale, but to ensure that his clients end up with a property that is suited to their needs and tastes.  To achieve this, he takes the time to develop a comprehensive understanding of the individual’s likes and dislikes, financial framework and requirements.  Unlike any other real estate agent I have worked with, Colin is quite prepared to steer a client away from a property that is not suited to their budget, lifestyle or individual preferences, rather than see them end up with less than satisfied .

Colin is easy to work with, accommodating, and responsive; and he is extremely patient. There is no hard sell when dealing with Colin, and no pressure to proceed with an offer unless the client is completely comfortable with all aspects of the deal.   


He makes buying a home fun!

I chose Collin as my realtor after having consulted him as a Rental Agent.  It was about a year after he put me into an apartment that I contacted him with the intent to buy.  I was impressed that he remembered me and my likes and dislikes from our previous working relationship.  Extremely patient, he worked with me for close to six months to find the right place for me.  I never felt pressured to buy and I always felt I could trust his judgement and advice.  He even advised me against some of my more fanciful whims and often gave me much-needed reality checks, which was very important for a first-time home buyer like myself.  Not one to hold back information, he taught me alot about the market and empowered me to make the right choice for my first home.  He is a very dynamic, personable, and professional

realtor and I had a blast looking at places with him.   He makes

buying a home fun!  Many Thanks!!
