What our clients are saying about us…
Dear Collins Group,
Lorene and I became familiar with your firm several years ago when a friend utilized you to sell her house and was extremely satisfied. When it came our time to sell, you [Collins Group Realty] were our first call.
Chip Collins and Chris Sanders came to the house and did their analysis. We were impressed with their approach and style and therefore deemed it unnecessary to look any further for a broker. We listed the house.
The brokers open house was on 8/30/16 —-the house sold on 9/5/16.
However, our timing was less than perfect in that between the sale date and the closing date Hurricane Matthew ravaged the Island, causing the buyers to postpone the closing.
We were out of town during the hurricane and therefore didn’t know the extent of the damage to our house. When we got access to the Island/house we could see that a couple windows had been knocked out but someone had already patched them. I just assumed that one of my golf buddies had done it. Turns out that Chris Sanders personally fixed them because all the handymen on the island were working on other damaged properties.
On the day of the closing I called the Collins Group office to see how things were coming along. Chip wasn’t in, but they said to try his cell phone as he was at our house supervising the installation of windows. I called the house and there he was, working with the window installers. While he was there I asked him to look around the house for some of our belongings that had been ‘lost’ in shipment. He found them and took them to UPS to be shipped to us.
It’s hard for me to convey how great their service is and what nice people they are to work with, from the receptionist to the closing staff, they are the best. I highly recommend them.
I have bought and sold houses for the last 35 plus years. Collins Group Realty is by far the most professional, service oriented and caring company that I have ever dealt with.
Mr. Ed Rogers – Seller 2016
Dealing with the Collins Group was a very pleasant experience. I especially appreciated the way they guided me through the process once an offer was made. In other words, they took over every detail until the end. Thank you so much!
Ms. Trude Diagonale – Seller 2016
Excellent communication and closing functions well-coordinated.
Dr. Arthur Gardikes – Seller 2016
Collins Group Realty was able to list and sell our home without delays. Charlotte Main impressed us with her professional attitude.
Ronald and Maria Settimo – Seller 2016
Collins Group Realty distinguishes itself from the other firms. They are very methodical, analytical and adaptable. This combination gives them the ability to bring success to their clients. I hear other Realtors say laudable things and make promises, but they turn out to be a disappointment after you have signed. Collins Group Realty is unlike their competitors – they get the job done and the experience is fun. I will go back each and every time!
Mr. Thomas Wilson – Seller 2016
We were referred to our agent and first met her while on vacation in Hilton Head. We were very impressed with her. Our agent spent so much time with us on the phone, texting and showing us many homes. She knew exactly what we were looking for! We were impressed with her group, they were very professional and friendly.
William and Marilyn – Buyer 2016
Collins Group Realty continues to go above and beyond whether you are buying or selling. Chip is the best! His team was always very responsive to any need, whether big or small. Once again Collins Group Realty has gone above and beyond to serve their clients. I love this agency and would use them again in a heartbeat!
Scott and Lisa Lengel – Seller 2016
Overall service was excellent and I was impressed with the efficiency of the support staff.
Ms. Rebecca Wirth – Buyer 2016
Chip Collins and his team have provided an excellent experience in the listing and sale of our home in Sea Pines. Chip has developed a great team esprit among the staff who work well together, while making himself always available and in close personal touch with his clients to oversee all aspects of the transaction. We highly recommend Chip Collins’ Group as THE BEST!
Richard and Nan Rideout – Seller 2016
We have recently listed..and sold..our home through Collins Group and highly recommend them as an outstanding full service company with excellent support staff. They have developed a strong reputation as The Hilton Head Realtors who have approaches and programs which exceed the competition. I am a Real Estate Broker in another state and have high standards…which they more than met. Whether listing or searching for a home, I strongly encourage interviewing Chip Collins and Co.
Nancy Wendt – Seller 2016
Collins Group Realty did an incredible job selling my home in less than 36 hours. Their professionalism and communication during the entire process was well received and I recommend their services to anyone who likes getting things done quickly and efficiently. Their communication and team approach to not only buying but selling my home has set the bar high for future real estate agents in my new region.
Mr. Jeffrey Ford – Seller 2016
I have sold two homes with Collins Group Realty and have had excellent service both times! Their team effort has provided an easy sale and closing for both of my homes.
Mr. Greg Langmaid – Seller 2016
We were living in Colorado trying to buy a house in South Carolina, which is scary when you don’t know the area well. I felt our agent went above and beyond what I asked of him to make us feel comfortable. When we found our house online, we knew it was the one and wanted to move quickly. I asked our agent if he could go to the house the following day and take pictures for me. A few hours later that same day, he called me with a video chat and walked me around the house so I could see it “in person.” It was incredibly helpful and sealed the deal for us.
Ms. Lynette Perkins – Buyer 2016
Our agent at Collins Group Realty is one of the most professional and competent Realtors I’ve ever worked with. He was patient but aware, seemed to know when I needed a nudge – he was great. His network of other servers providers is impeccable. They were responsive, professional and always over delivered on their services. This was important because I live 1,000 miles away. My first call for my next transaction will be to Collins Group Realty!
Mr. Tom Anderson – Seller 2016
Great team! Our agent and the support staff made the process easy, good communication and follow-up throughout the home buying process. Very knowledgeable and efficient in making the whole purchase easy. Thank you for all of your help!
Mr. Michael Embach – Buyer 2016
The sale of our house is the 3rd time we’ve worked with Collins Group Realty. Each experience has been excellent and this was no different. Everyone at Collins Group Realty treated us in a way that made us feel as though we were the most important client. The group always promptly responded to our questions, returned our calls and kept us updated every step of the way. We will look to work with Collins Group Realty the next time we buy or sell property on Hilton Head Island.
Mr. and Mrs. Robert Trotta – Seller 2016
We met our agent six years ago at Sun City. She knows the market and has the expertise to put her clients into a home that fits their needs. We truly enjoyed working with her from our Massachusetts home. IT was a big move for us as we had many doubts. Our agent helped in many ways to help with our decision.
Mr. and Mrs. Leo Lagace – Buyer 2016
I cannot say enough about our agent and the entire team at Collins Group Realty. Having recently closed on a pretty complicated transaction with this team, I can say that I have no interest in bringing any future business to any other agency. From assisting with clarifying terms on the contract to assisting with addressing minor “punch-list” items from the property inspection on the day before closing – this team went above and beyond!
Ms. Glenna Hagopian – Buyer 2016
Whether you are buying or selling on Hilton Head, Collins Group Realty “makes it happen” with minimal angst. The Group’s team structure assures all details are managed by experienced staff.
Dr. Alfred Cohen – Buyer 2016
Buying a new home is a taxing situation. Collins Group Realty helped reduce our anxieties by paying attention to our desires and focusing on homes that best satisfied those desires within our price range. We saw many homes and our agent was helpful in drawing comparisons and relating differences to our stated needs and desires. We were well served!
Mr. and Mrs. Piet DeWitt – Buyer 2016
Our Realtor was responsive and prompt. He consistently listened to us and provided sound feedback. Our buying process went smoothly thanks to the attention of the Closings Department. The small glitches that are inevitable in any property purchase were attended to quickly. Collins Group Realty provided us a stress-free and efficient property search and closing, and we are thrilled with our new Hilton Head Island home!
Mr. and Mrs. Kurt Denlinger – Buyer 2016
We called a number listed for a house we were interested in a couple of years ago, and our agent showed it to us. We didn’t get the house but we liked the agent so much that we kept his number. When we were ready to sell our two properties, our agent was right there for us and is now the only agent we will ever call to help us. We consider him family now and will be calling him again soon to help us sell our next property. Collins Group Realty is the BEST real estate company in South Carolina! They go beyond what’s expected and take absolutely wonderful care of their clients. We highly recommend them to anyone who would like to buy or sell property fast, with the smoothest, most professional closing possible.
Mrs. Jeannette Neal – Seller 2015
Diana and I were both very happy with the performance of our agent and the support of the Collins Group Realty team. We were impressed with the way Collins Group Realty was organized to support their customers right through closing and beyond. That showed us that Collins Group Realty is very customer-centric and they have made a substantial financial commitment in personnel to support their philosophy.
Mr. and Mrs. Bob Fortier – Buyer 2015
Working with our agent at Collins Group Realty was a pleasure, he showed us many properties. He developed an idea as to what we were looking for and when he found a property he felt like we would like, he sent us all of the information. We bought the property we did based on his recommendation – sigh unseen! Thank you for the professionalism and outstanding service.
Mr. and Mrs. John Ryan – Buyer 2015
After a couple of “unpleasant” Hilton Head real estate home buying attempts a dear friend referred us to Collins Group Realty. Wow…what a difference working with professionals can be. We could not be happier and would highly recommend Collins Group Realty!
Mr. and Mrs. Ken Asbury – Buyer 2015
Our experience with Collins Group Realty has been a pleasure. The agents and staff are total professionals. We have purchased and sold several homes over the past 30 years, by far this has been “painless” from start to finish. We are looking forward to purchasing another home from Collins Group Realty. They are amazing in dealing with all details.
Mr. and Mrs. Mark Vosk – Seller 2015
We couldn’t have picked a better Real Estate Agency to meet our needs. Our agent was always there for us to answer any questions or concerns. He is a very professional and caring agent. A+ for us!
Mr. and Mrs. Rich Butler – Buyer 2015
I want to take this opportunity to let you know of the spectacular service we received with the sale of our home. From the moment I contacted your office, our agent was punctual, professional, knowledgeable, and extremely positive. At our original meeting he was armed with pertinent information which he patiently presented to my 80 year old mother and myself. He answered all of our questions and listened patiently to our objectives in selling our home. We listed our property immediately! Our agent scanned his vast list of qualified buyers, made a couple phone calls and within 1 hour had pre-qualified buyers at our door. From listing to SOLD was exactly 1 1/2 hours! AMAZING!! His follow-up skills were second to none and he stayed in contact with us throughout the entire process. I would recommend Collins Group Realty to anyone looking to market their home. We now consider them part of our family!
Mrs. Meri MacGregor – Seller 2015
We would like you to know that your agent was great throughout the entire process. It took about 2 years from start to end and we have become friends. Whenever someone mentions about checking out the area – we tell them we have the agent for them. Our agent listened to our needs and gave us honest and thoughtful answers and recommendations.
Mr. Terri Carapellucci – Buyer 2015
The seller had his house listed “For Sale by Owner.” A chance drive by the house found the owner outside. As soon as I suggested we might ask him, our agent was out of the car. We were able to view the house which we ended up purchasing. Our agent was excellent at negotiating the sale and making things go smoothly.
Mr. and Mrs. John Buck – Buyer 2015
Our agent was the best. He listened to my needs, analyzed my budget, and made very sensible recommendations. When I bought my condo, he guided me to a lender who secured my loan. The closing team is top notch. Collins Group Realty helped manage the entire process, which was great for an out-of-state buyer.
Mr. and Mrs. Phillips – Buyer 2015
Our agent was such a joy to work with – very knowledgeable and professional. After meeting with her, she knew what we desired and worked diligently to acquire the result. She is an asset to Collins Group Realty and I’m sure can work with anyone. Thanks!
Mr. and Mrs. Mac Davidson – Buyer 2015
I chose our agent because I knew she would get me a good buyer, highest price and quick sale. And that is what she did. Our agent researched the market to set my price just right to sell, assisted in getting upgraded appliances in the kitchen, coordinated with my handyman who took care of my property and suggested some upgrades including freshening up the landscape and power washing the porches. She did a perfect job!
Mr. Vann Anderson – Seller 2015
We had a very positive experience with our agent. Being an out of state buyer as well as people who had not purchased a home in almost 30 years, we required a bit more hand-holding. Our agent made time for our numerous questions before we arrived on Hilton Head, and once there as available to us on our limited schedule. Your website provided an easy way to target appropriate homes. We highly recommend Collins Group Realty!
Mr. and Mrs. Ken Gerth – Buyer 2015
The service from the day I met our agent until I closed was exceptional. Their attention to detail and professionalism was outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who was looking for a property on HHI.
Mr. Bill Kirchner – Buyer 2015
Great work all of you! I told our neighbor if they wish to sell, Collins Group gets it done pronto! 14 days!
Mr. Philip Young and Ms. Barbara Kocher – Seller 2015
Just spent the most enjoyable and informative day with your agent. He gave up a beautiful Saturday to impart his wealth of knowledge about the Island and Hilton Head realty in general. He toured us around the Island showing us the differences between plantations as well as off plantation properties. Going home to do some homework and digest all that he shared. We now have a much clearer idea of what we should be focusing on. Thank you so much, he was the ultimate professional.
Mr. Jim Turcer – Prospective Buyer 2015
I was so impressed with the efficiency of getting our home listed and then sold in 19 days! Our agent was very responsive and was always available within a short time even when he was busy. The service was excellent!
Mr. Brent Robinson – Seller 2015
It was amazing that so many people from Collins Group were working on my purchase. Everyone was so helpful through every step and constantly kept me informed on all aspects of the purchase.
Ms. Theresa Savage – Buyer 2015
The Collins Group went above and beyond in helping us sell our home. Their team approach to the selling process really impressed me. I would highly recommend you use them if you want to sell a home. We will be using them again in the next years to buy another home. Great job “Team Collins!”
Mr. Leo Short – Seller 2015
Just a quick note to tell you how professional our interaction has been with our agent. My husband and I purchased a home in Sun City today. He saved us thousands of dollars over what we were willing to offer by negotiating on our behalf. We came out in May to look at the area and our agent showed us around. He really listened to what we were looking for and found us the perfect area. We chose our agent because we found him to be the most responsive Realtor in our initial inquiries. That kind of customer service is hard to come by today. He is an asset t your group and we will recommend him to friends who are looking to retire to the Sun City area.
Mr. and Mrs. Michael Milanowski – Buyer 2015
The Collins Group Realty team is extremely knowledgeable and always on top of things. We contacted our agent on a Wednesday night and were informed on Friday morning that the seller had accepted our offer. Our agent and the team know what they are doing and do it well!! They really pay attention to detail. A big thanks to all!!
Ms. Darla Davidson – Buyer 2015
Having now worked with Collins Group Realty on multiple purchases and sales, I can simply say that they are the best at what they do! Chip and his team are exceptionally knowledgeable, professional and personable, but most importantly, they will go the extra mile to get your purchase or sale closed. This is not an easy task in today’s market, yet is is what matters most as a buyer or seller. There is no question as to who I would use again as my realtor – Collins Group Realty!
Ms. Helaine Hebble – Seller 2015
First, we were impressed by your marketing and outstanding property photos; secondly, we were very impressed by our agent. We had many small details and changes in plans and Collins Group Realty stayed with us on the journey! Our agent is outstanding and the team was excellent and attentive – they kept us on track!
Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Brodie – Buyer 2015
With a pending job transfer, we were on a very tight schedule. Being new and not knowing the area, Collins Group Realty provided us with direction and found us a home within one week! Our agent was ALWAYS available, ready to answer all of our questions, and with us every step of the buying process. He is still following up to check on us!
Mr. and Mrs. Rahn – Buyer 2015
Collins Group Realty and my agent made the experience of selling my home painless – their understanding of the process and step-by-step support was so comforting! The appraisal was right on with the sales price. My home sold within 30 days of listing! Thank you Collins Group Realty!
Ms. Pamela Passananti – Seller 2015
Our agent took the time to listen to our needs and find the perfect neighborhood for us. He had great knowledge of the area and always gave us very timely responses. He was extremely helpful and even assisted us in finding someone to help us put up 6 ceiling fans!
Mr. and Mrs. Jason Aipperspach – Buyer 2015
Collins Group Realty explained the process for selling and buying completely! There was no “high pressure” to list. When we were ready, they moved quickly and the results were a quick sale. The team worked together beautifully making it a very efficient process. Our agent patiently showed us potential properties until we found our perfect home in the right area. Your overall service is excellent!
Mr. and Mrs. John White – Seller/Buyer 2015
Look no further than Collins Group Realty! We have just closed on the home we inherited from our mother as part of her estate. Both my sister and I live out of state, and because we were not residents of the home, there was a long list of details that we needed help with. Chip Collins was able to connect us with great contractors to get the home ready for sale, and he expertly moved the process along. When we first contacted him, he had very little time to prepare for our meeting, yet only a couple of hours later he had prepared a very detailed description of the home and lots of other relevant material. We were blown away!
He was great at keeping us in the loop as to what was going on both with the home itself and with potential buyers. We felt 100% confident with Chip and his entire team. Each person representing his team has been gracious, detailed, proactive and VERY easy to work with. We closed on the home in a very short period of time, got a great price, and completed every step of the process with ease. Bonus: Chip is a really, really nice guy! 5 stars!
Mrs. Spalding Ashley – Seller 2015
From the very first meeting, I knew our agent was a perfect fit for us. I had interviewed other agents and wasn’t impressed, then I met our agent at Collins Group Realty. He made us some tall promises that day and was able to follow through on all of them. Listed and sold in 6 days! He told us we could contact him at any time for any reason. I found a reason to put his promise to the test. We contacted him several times, for several reasons, some not even related to our sale. He kept his word and was always there for us, he is our “Realtor for Life!”
Mr. and Mrs. Ryan Taylor – Seller 2015
We came out of New Jersey and met with a Realtor from Collins Group Realty. He was the most professional and knowledgeable Realtor we have ever dealt with! He took us all around the areas we wanted to see and provided us with the history of those areas which helped us decide where we wanted to settle. We highly recommend Collins Group Realty…you will not be disappointed!
Mr. and Mrs. Michael Malinowski – Buyer 2015
Our agent is the best! Thank you so much for your time and skill, you really listened to our needs and wants. If anyone we know is in the market in Hilton Head we will refer you in a heart beat as an absolute pro!
Mr. and Mrs. Kurt Miasi – Buyer 2015
Our entire experience with Collins Group Realty was very pleasant and efficient. Our agent was extremely caring and helpful. We appreciated the entire team’s accessibility during the process which helped to make it less stressful. Thank you!!
Mr. and Mrs. William Groves – Buyer 2015
We would like to thank you for everything you did to assist us with the sale of our house. We greatly appreciated your expertise and professionalism. This will be our tenth move and we have never had an agent who was more accessible or patient when we had questions. Your negotiating skills are unparalleled to previous agents we’ve had. Your organization, Collins Group Realty, in our humble opinion, has the best and most unique marketing technique for handling all aspects of real estate sales from beginning to end.
Mr. and Mrs. Ramirez – Seller 2014
Our agent was the best Realtor we have ever worked with. He was friendly, professional and understood our needs during our home search. Our agent went above and beyond to ensure relocating to Bluffton was an easy transition for my family. Since we were living out of state, our agent continued to search for homes and send us information on any homes that were similar to our requests, including photos and community information. Our agent made our move easy and fun. We would highly recommend Collins Group Realty as the entire team was professional and personable from the beginning of our search throughout the process of closing.
Ms. Susan Whittenton – Buyer 2015
Our agent was available at the first phone call and was efficient and thorough getting information to us on homes we saw on the website. Our emails were always returned and answered in a timely fashion and he was always available at all hours including nights and weekends. This was our first time buying a home and he made the experience great!
Ms. Leah Steele – Buyer 2015
We met our agent in the summer of 2014 for the first time and she showed us a few properties. Being with our agent was like spending time with an old friend. After we left Hilton Head, she continued to keep us informed of properties and lots available. Now instead of just being a vacationer two weeks a year, we will be a full time resident. I feel if I have any questions, my agent or any associates at Collins Group realty will be able to answer them. Collins Group Realty has met all of our needs!
Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Burnham – Buyer 2015
My agent and I met in July of this year when I was in town for a job interview. Although I wasn’t sure that I would actually relocate, she spent two days showing me around the area and sharing her knowledge. After my arrival in Bluffton, we resumed the search for the right property, and my agent was a delight to work with throughout the entire process. She is very professional, as well as patient and caring, and was always willing to go the extra mile to get the job done. Going forward I will not hesitate to recommend Collins Group Realty to anyone looking to purchase or sell property.
Ms. Rebecca Hinton – Buyer 2014
If you are looking to sell or purchase real estate in the Bluffton/Hilton Head Island area, then look no further than Collins Group Realty. The best on the Island for responsiveness, friendliness, and expertise. Thank you Collins Group Realty!
Mr. and Mrs. Brad McRee – Buyer 2014
I was most impressed by the patience of all team members, especially my agent. As a first time home buyer, he genuinely cared that I knew what I was getting into, the steps that needed to be taken to successfully complete my purchase, and further to make a smooth transition after the sale.
Ms. Cheryl Gates – Buyer 2014
Our agent was wonderful. She was honest and straight forward. I felt she was looking out for my best interests and not just trying to sell something. Once a deal was made she had my back all the way and was in there fighting for me every inch of the way. If she hadn’t I probably still wouldn’t be in my new home. Our agent is the BEST real estate agent I have ever met.
Mr. and Mrs. Sean Knisely – Buyer 2014
What a great experience! Our agent and the team at Collins Group Realty made this purchase run as smoothly as it could, despite a couple of hiccups along the way. What impressed us the most is our agent’s ability to listen to what we were seeking and then adjust his advice accordingly. Even up to the last moment, our agent remained flexible and responsive, resulting in our purchase of a beautiful townhome in Shipyard. We would recommend Collins Group Realty and specifically our agent to anyone we know who decides to look for real estate on HHI.
Mr. and Mrs. Robert Trotta – Buyer 2014
Thank you very much for all the great effort and hard work you did to sell our condo and all of the many emails to us. You made us feel our condo was in great hands. Your warm southern help and your staff made us feel all was being taken care of.
Mr. and Mrs. Hyatt – Seller 2014
My husband and I feel so blessed that we came upon Collins Group Realty! Our agent really listened to what we wanted and looked out for every one of our needs. Since we were also in the process of buying a business, our heads were exploding with so many decisions that it would have been easy for us to overlook an important detail with our future home. Our agent did not let that happen, and we owe it all to her insight and experience! We knew that we were in good hands with her and once we found our home, the rest of the Collins Group professionals lived up to those high standards as well. I would highly recommend this team of well trained professionals to anyone looking for a home. Thank you Collins Group Realty!
Dr. and Mrs. Jeff Wonder – Buyer 2014
My agent worked for me from the time I considered buying in Hilton Head. From October 2013 he forwarded me listings. In June 2014 he showed me 8 properties from which I selected Indigo Run. My agent’s professionalism is what impressed me most, Collins Group Realty sets the benchmark for customer service.
Mr. John Cleary – Buyer 2014
If you are looking for a place to call home, an investment/income property or just a second/vacation home, Collins Group Realty can help you, even if you are 580 miles away like we were or living in the Hilton Head vicinity. Collins Group Realty will work for you, advising you on every step of the process from the search to the review to the closing. We now own our vacation condo, talk to Collins Group Realty and come join us!
Mr. and Mrs. Jim Elkins – Buyer 2014
We have had the most incredible experience with our agent and Collins Group Realty. Besides being immediately available whenever we had questions, our agent offered sound advice and made us feel completely comfortable with our decisions. He was knowledgeable and helped us understand the home buying process. He clearly cared about our family and wanted to help us in any way he could. We would highly recommend our agent and Collins Group Realty and we will definitely use them again in the future!
Mr. and Mrs. Fortner – Buyer 2014
The Collins Group staff are true professionals delivering high quality service to their customers. Our personal experience over several real estate transactions, through Collins Group Realty, attest to this true customer satisfaction.
Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Bruen – Seller 2014
After our home was on the market for 2 years with a local agent with not so much as an offer, Collins Group Realty got the job done in two weeks. Our agent, on his own time, aided us in repairs needed and removing some furniture from our home. Being 600 miles away that was a huge help. Our agent is a gem, thank you so much!
Mr. and Mrs. John Draugelis – Seller 2014
I have my real estate license in California and believe that excellent client rapport plus a high regard for and from your competing brokers are key ingredients for success in this business! Collins Group Realty was recommended to me by both friends and other realtors as a highly professional, ethical, and quality company. I will recommend Collins Group to my friends who are moving or coming to live in Beaufort County. You sold my home in two days!
Mr. George Clawson – Seller 2014
It’s not very often that I take the time to complete surveys, but in this case I’m compelled to do so. If you didn’t know it already, let me tell you that my agent is an incredibly talented and devoted sales associate. His attention to detail and inquiry responsiveness is a strength that I seldom see. As I told him, “You not only made a sale, but you made a friend.”
Mr. Dean Wilson – Buyer 2014
As a buyer living overseas and knowing nothing of the area I was looking at, Collins Group Realty made it all so simple. My agent was extremely knowledgeable about the area and listened to what I was looking for. My agent was always available when needed and answered all my questions promptly. When you are a buyer with limited time, this is extremely important. The group did a fantastic job!
Penelope Hilton – Buyer 2014
Chip was very professional and very attentive to our needs. He always kept us informed and always reachable. First class operation.
Mr. and Mrs. Howard Fox – Seller 2014
Our agent was very patient and effective. He worked hard to get information to us and went out of his way to make himself available. Collins Group Realty was great to work with, top notch service from patient and knowledgeable people.
Mr. Roger Taylor – Buyer 2014
Our agent was wonderful and always very patient and kind. Our agent was very knowledgeable and we learned many things from him about the southern home experience. We are from PA and he gave us some good pointers and tips. He knew what he was talking about. Our agent and the Collins Group Realty team were very helpful to us during the buying process. We appreciated all of the returned phone calls and emails that were answered in a timely fashion. No pressure was put upon us during the process. Thank you!
Mr. and Mrs. Iannini – Buyer 2014
Although not a large $ purchase, our agent handled this transaction with an equal sense of drive and urgency. He had good knowledge, did his homework and was very responsive to our emails and calls. We truly enjoyed his outgoing nature and willingness to go the extra mile.
Mr. Jack Richards – Buyer 2014
We are definitely in debt to our agent, the guy with the “S” on his chest that stands for SUPERB, STELLAR and SINCERE. He consistently handled all challenges with the utmost care and courtesy, not to mention effectiveness. Then I learn he does this for other challenging realty situations on something of a regular basis. What a stellar experience of ministrations no matter what lengthy things surrounded this transaction. The only way to describe his process is with the words that my English nanny used to say, “Prosecute with determination and tenacity, that keep calm and carry on is for wusses.”
Mr. and Mrs. Bob Steuber – Buyer 2014
My agent took the reins and ran with selling with my home, making sure all was perfection, spreading the word, doing the paperwork, advising, and showing. It was hard to sell my beautiful place, but my husband had died and to keep it for four months out of a year would be major work for me. My agent went above and beyond in all ways!
Mrs. Gail Matthews – Seller 2014
Collins Group Realty made what could have been a long and stressful process of finding, buying and closing on a beautiful property not only an enjoyable journey but it took less than two months. Our agent listened to our requests and was instrumental in every step of the process. The whole staff was amazing and informative and because of that, we thoroughly enjoyed what could have been a very stressful process.
Mr. Eric Moore – Buyer 2014
My agent was patient, knowledgeable and efficient. Followed up constantly with me to make sure I knew what was happening at all times. As a former Realtor I was looking for that special agent and found her. Purchased a home with her help after talking with several other agents in the area. My agent was the greatest!
Ms. Jerri Pearce – Buyer 2014
We are so grateful that we chose our agent with Collins Group Realty. Our home buying experience was wonderful. Our agent was very knowledgeable of the market and area we were buying in. Our agent made several calls during our loan process just to make sure all was going smooth and nice. The housewarming gift we received after we moved in was an unexpected surprise. Overall, my husband and myself are so happy with Collins Group Realty. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Mr. and Mrs. Chip Custer – Buyer 2014
Our agent was awesome, very friendly and professional. He showed us numerous places and worked with us to help us find our new home. He was very helpful and I would definitely recommend him and Collins Group Realty to anyone looking to buy a home.
Mr. Scott Schultz – Buyer 2014
Thank you, thank you, thank you! You are the best realtor we have ever worked with. The only thing that makes me sad is that I won’t get to talk to you everyday!
Mr. and Mrs. Rob Falkenberg – Buyer 2014
It was a long journey friend! Thank you for helping us find the way. You know we had been “looking” for at least 4 years but dreaming for many more. I enlisted your assistance when I happened on a property that I had a question on. You were patient. Obviously we questioned what we wanted or needed. Again, you were patient. You helped us see what we were actually looking for ultimately.
Mr. and Mrs. Dave Gasmovic – Buyer 2014
Where to start???? Many, many, many, many thanks for all of your time, energy, patience (with my high anxiety) and kindness. I love my new home on the marsh and mi casa es su casa anytime!
Susan Protheroe – Buyer 2014
From one initial email contact and continuing right through to the closing of our new home, Collins Group Realty provided us outstanding professional service every step of the way. Their knowledge of the local housing market combined with their understanding of our personal needs made this a truly enjoyable home buying search and purchase.
Mr. and Mrs. Milczarski – Buyer 2014
Our agent was always available for my questions and my unorthodox schedule. He even stayed in contact with me on Thanksgiving while I was negotiating. I was very impressed with our agent’s dedication as well as the business connections that Collins Group Realty introduced me too.
Mrs. Carissa Branson – Buyer 2014
Our agent was extremely knowledgeable, professional and friendly. We felt very comfortable the first time we met her and we made a new friend! Our agent was persistent, hands on and always available. Our purchase was a short sale which are difficult, but our agent got us through it! We feel our agent went out of her way to go to the house and take pictures, gave very sound advice and continues to be so helpful even after closing.
Mr. and Mrs. Robert Stout – Buyer 2014
We could not have selected a better agent than Collins Group Realty to represent us in our recent purchase of a condo in the Hilton Head/Bluffton area. Professionalism, responsiveness, dependability and genuine caring for our interests were evident throughout the entire process. In an increasingly rigorous and at times difficult loan review process, our agent’s guidance and judgement was invaluable. Thanks and hat’s off to Collins Group Realty for your exceptional service for which we will recommend to anyone interested in buying/selling in the Hilton Head/Bluffton area. Thanks again!
Mr. and Mrs. Gary Olund – Buyer 2014
Our agent was remarkable from day one. She was so patient. This was a first time home buying experience for us. She was always there with an alternative if what we were doing wasn’t working. She really held our hands through this whole process. I could not have been more pleased with our experience.
Mr. and Mrs. White – Buyer 2014
Couldn’t ask for a more attentive and hardworking real estate office to do business with! If you need help finding your next home, look no further than Collins Group Realty!
Ms. Valerie Vance
We were not used to such prompt responses to our questions and requests. Collins Group was eager to guide us through all of the phases of our purchasing process – our Hilton Head eyes and ears since we were purchasing from 350 miles away. We truly appreciate everything our agent and the crew did to make this such a pleasurable buying experience!
Mr. and Mrs. Lanz – Buyer 2013
We called about a listing and spoke to our agent. After meeting our agent, we knew that he would be the only Realtor we would need in Beaufort County. Our agent has always been extremely professional, helpful, courteous, and has gone over and above helping us find a home in Bluffton. I have recommended our agent and Collins Group Realty to friends and others whenever I hear someone is looking to buy or sell a home here. Even when I called from Florida, our agent would take the time to preview a property for us. Our agent has answered every question, returned every phone call, and met us at homes at all hours to accommodate our schedules. Our agent went to our closing, and even drove my husband to the homeowner’s management office after closing. He is truly an asset and we feel lucky to have met him!
Mr. and Mrs. Treap – Buyer 2013
My experience with Collins Group has been the best experience. We have bought and sold a few houses in our lifetime and I have to say that Collins Group has the knowledge, experience, and staff to get it all done right. I cannot say enough about how nicely we were treated and how they understood our needs. This is a small island and there are many realtors to choose from but Collins Group is ahead of them all from listing, showings, caring, contract, follow-up and finally closing.
Mr. and Mrs. Sala – Seller 2013
We contacted Collins Group about 2/3 years ago when interested in homes in the Bluffton/HHI area. We live in Ohio and would view homes with our agent when on vacation or through the internet. Our agent and Collins Group were incredibly patient as we spent years searching. Purchasing a second home from a distance was challenging and after two failed attempts, we wondered if it would truly happen. Leave it to our agent to help us one more time which was successful – 3rd time is a charm! He was our eyes and ears, meeting with the builder, doing walk-throughs and everything we couldn’t do hundreds of miles away. He treated the purchase of our home as if he were purchasing it for himself. We can’t thank Collins Group enough!
Mr. and Mrs. Paul Armola – Buyer 2013
We were very impressed with your web page, ease of use, good information, and saving favorites. Our agent contacted us to follow-up on some information we requested. After meeting our agent we did not consider shopping other realtors. As a retired Organization Development Consultant who used to run workshops on Customer Satisfaction, our agent was a prince. Late in my career I was so frustrated with the services I got at motorcycle dealerships that I bought one and when I sold it we had a 97% Customer satisfaction rating, you guys are better!!
Mr. and Mrs. Flavio Corrocher – Buyer 2013
Our agent called us before we came down to the area and we scheduled a meeting. He was most helpful in guiding us through the real estate market in Hilton Head. He listened to our concerns and what we were looking for and responded with suggestions, information and listings. He took the time to show us homes and properties and provided any information we asked for regarding those that we were most interested in. He did an excellent job!
Mr. Anthony Vouvalides – Buyer 2013
We used another agent to sell our property before Collins Group Realty. We felt pressure to sell from offers that were unacceptable. With Collins Group Realty, we felt no pressure. We felt warmth and friendliness during the time our property was listed with Collins Group and our concerns and worries were quickly relieved. Thank you so much for all of your help!
Mr. and Mrs. Dan Byers – Seller 2013
I worked with our agent for two years before buying my house. During that time she was always responsive to my questions. The service was excellent!
Mr. McKelvey – Buyer 2013
Excellent and experienced services that is also very personal. Post sales service is absolutely the best. Absolutely the most dependable and ethical realtors we have dealt with. If I ever know of anyone looking for a home in the Hilton Head area, I will recommend you as the only realtor to use.
Mr. David Dalton – Buyer 2013
Collins Group Realty made our purchase of a Hilton Head condo a breeze – just like the ocean breezes of this beautiful island! Our agent was outstanding in her assistance to us. She answered questions, found answers needed, and was knowledgeable and upfront in dealing with us throughout the buying process. We definitely recommend Collins Group Realty!
Mr. and Mrs. Dan Willis – Buyer 2013
We are thrilled with the level of service we received from Collins Group Realty. Both of our properties sold very quickly and the entire experience was smooth and effortless for us. We are extremely grateful!
Melinda Cadman – Seller 2013
Our agent bent over backwards, to say the least. Since I am out of town, he made several detailed videos of properties for me to view. He answered every one of the seemingly hundreds of emails I sent him. All of this with a smile on his face that I could hear when we spoke on the phone!
Jennifer Raj – Buyer 2013
The emailed listing alerts were very helpful in identifying properties of interest. Once we decided to move forward with a physical search, our agent was able to line up 8 properties in one 4 hour block. Our agent’s advice and knowledge about the properties was very helpful and appreciated. When we made a decision, our agent was awesome in working the sale, answering our questions, and keeping us informed (even after the property closed). Collins Group Realty is a must for buying and selling on Hilton Head Island. Their staff have a thorough knowledge of the real estate market and work together to ensure a trouble-free and pleasant experience.
Mr. and Mrs. Edwards – Buyer 2013
It was such a pleasure to work with Collins Group Realty when we purchased our condo through them. They are a comprehensive group that can service all your needs when buying/selling property in the Hilton Head/Bluffton area. My husband and I highly recommend them if you are looking for an outstanding professional realty group.
Mr. and Mrs. Whitley – Buyer 2013
Collins Group Realty was an exceptional experience for an out of town seller. Attentive, knowledgeable and they really cared about me. With updates of what the market and our house were doing I was always informed. Thank you Collins Group Realty!
Mr. and Mrs. Gregory Vieau – Seller 2013
Our agent was incredibly helpful with the whole process. Always made himself available to answer any questions I had on a property. Because we are living out of state he would video homes for us and that was a tremendous help. He helped us find the perfect home in the exact neighborhood we wanted! I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor.
Mr. and Mrs. Maino – Buyer 2013
Our agent was the most professional, straight-forward, no-nonsense agent I have ever known. She was extremely knowledgeable of all plantations and developments in Hilton Head and was able to easily guide us to the right places. She is the best agent we have ever worked with and we have bought and sold 4 homes in 3 states!
Mr. John Lazinski – Buyer 2013
Our agent and the entire team at Collins Group Realty surpassed by far any real estate group that I have ever used in purchasing a home! Our agent was patient, responsive, and most importantly knowledgeable regarding ALL of my needs and questions from purchasing to closing. When I sell/purchase another property in Hilton Head, Collins Group Realty will be my realtor of choice!
Mr. Robert Mitchell – Buyer 2013
We were recommended by a trusted friend and after speaking to Chip, we knew we had the right firm. Collins Group Realty is a true leader in the field. We felt they had our best interests in a difficult market and their ability to list, sell, broker, and close a deal was an honest commitment.
Mr. and Mrs. Morda – Seller 2013
Three years ago I saw a property for sale and notified my agent. She was prompt and showed me two properties that fit my interest. She continued to send me alerts and when I was ready to buy (3 years later!) she was right there! Whenever I had a question, there was never a delay even when I called on the Fourth of July. Collins Group Realty was the most efficient agency I have ever worked with. They are the best!
Mrs. Kathleen Updike – Buyer 2013
We loved our experience with our agent and the Collins Group Realty team. Everyone took the time to make sure we understood the buying process, so when we finally found our home and submitted the offer, everything flowed smoothly. We would definitely recommend our agent and the Collins Group Realty team to anyone in the market!
Mr. and Mrs. Mayhew – Buyer 2013
Our agent was 100% wonderful, so personal, understood what we needed and didn’t try to push us into something just to make the sale. We bought our house on the Island from New York, not a lot of people can do that but with our agent’s help and honesty, we were able to buy our dream home. We will refer her to anyone looking for a GREAT agent!
Mr and Mrs. Maloney – Buyer 2013
We heard about our agent through one of our friends. His reputation of doing the absolute best job for his clients proceeded him. The services rendered met all of our expectations. Our agent is the consummate professional, we could not be more pleased will of his tireless efforts in helping us in areas that were foreign to us. A better job we could not ask for!
Mr. Stanley Kennedy – Buyer 2013
Our experience with Collins Group Realty and our agent was fantastic. We recommend them wholeheartedly! All questions were answered promptly and we were kept informed on a regular basis via phone and email. As residents of Michigan desiring to purchase a home site in the Bluffton area, our questions and concerns were many. During our brief visit to Hilton Head in March, our agent spent quite a bit of time showing us viable properties and providing answers to all of our questions. After returning to Michigan without making a purchase, at our request, our agent would visit new listings and provide us with detailed pictures of home sites which came on the market after our departure. With our agent’s guidance, assistance, and expertise, we are excited to be owners of a home site in a beautiful Bluffton community. We are confident our agent will do whatever he can to assist his Clients!
Mr. and Mrs. Bednarz – Buyer 2013
Knowledgeable, honest, realistic, down to earth communication, offered pros and cons for decisions that needed to be made. NOT pushy, flashy, dramatic. Very professional, responsive, respectful, good sense of humor and pleasant to work with. Highly competent and professional sales team who managed excellent rapport with both seller and buyers agent. Excellent internet presence, Chip and his team are highly recommended.
Mr. and Mrs. Kissiah – Seller 2013
Collins Group Realty served our needs very well. Buying a second home was very nerve-racking but our realtor was great during the process. From beginning to end our realtor was clear and knowledgeable. She tolerated house hunting with our 3 children and never hesitated to answer our questions. We would highly recommend the entire Collins Group Realty team! Thank you!
Mr. and Mrs. Kurt Pendl – Buyer 2013
Our agent was amazing! We had a short window of timelines to fly down and visit properties and our agent made everything happen. The seller tried to stall our closing and our agent once again made it happen! I would recommend Collins Group Realty without a doubt, our agent is the best!
Mr. and Mrs. Joe Foreman – Buyer 2013
When we had to sell our home quickly, Collins Group Realty stepped in and delivered. With just two weeks on the market, the home sold for an excellent price. We were most pleased with the effective networking and the unwavering support of Chip and his associates. We highly recommend them!
John Hutcheson and Elma Rios – Seller 2013
One of our really good friends heard we were in the market to purchase a home and recommended Collins Group Realty. I am so glad they did, our agent was AMAZING!!! Our agent followed up and followed through on everything. He was reliable, dependable, and enthusiastic for us. He was always on time, he always returned phone calls, and he stayed in contact with our lender when times got rough for us. Collins Group Realty helped ease every situation and every bump we ran into. I feel like Collins Group Realty went above and beyond the whole time. You guys are the best!!
Mr. and Mrs. Lombarski – Buyer 2013
Everything from our agent and Collins Group Realty was 100% top notch. Collins Group Realty has been our realtor of choice for the last two home sales and two home purchases. The reason we keep returning to Collins Group Realty is that our agent provides prompt and courteous service. No question is too small or unimportant. Our agent is always friendly and knowledgeable regarding our real estate transactions. I would recommend Collins Group Realty to all of my friends and family.
Mr. and Mrs. Ken Long – Buyer 2013
Customer service and good communication is key in any sales transaction. We believe Collins Group Realty stands above other firms in this area. Our agent made every effort to make our transaction smooth and always had our best interest at heart. Collins Group Realty is a well run organization where the Client is always treated with respect and patience. All staff listens to the needs of the Client.
Mr. and Mrs. Tim McHale – Buyer 2013
We were very pleased with the services provided by Collins Group Realty. They recently acted as listing agent for the sale of our Sea Pines condominium in a very difficult market for sellers. They were highly professional and effective in every phase of the process. Especially strong are their integrity, knowledge, marketing capabilities, and communications. It was a pleasure dealing with them and we highly recommend Collins Group Realty.
Mr. and Mrs. Victor Samuelson – Seller 2013
Our agent was very patient and helped us find the perfect home. She worked after hours and was easy to talk to and enjoyable to be around. She was very professional and informative about the areas and was able to give us so much information. We feel like we have made a new friend!
Mr. and Mrs. Spradley – Buyer 2013
Our agent was by far the best realtor we have ever worked with (and we have worked with a lot). She understood our dream and worked tirelessly to make it happen for us, even though we were not spending a lot of money. Patient and upbeat, it was always a joy to spend the day with her.
Penelope Singleton – Buyer 2013
I recently had the good fortune to purchase an ocean front condo on Hilton Head Island. I hired Collins Group Realty to represent me as my buyer’s agent. As a Realtor myself, I had knowledge and expectations of how I felt the process should go. My agent exceeded my expectations in all areas. Although I know she had many other Clients that she was working with at the time, her attentiveness and timely communication made me feel as if I were her only Client and number one priority at that time. She assisted in every detail and made a long distance transaction, which could have been very stressful, pain free and pleasant. I highly recommend the services of Collins Group Realty!
Amy Albright – Buyer 2013
What impressed me the most was how our agent treated us – with respect and value. Some agents we had talked with in the past treated us as if we weren’t going to make them as much money as someone purchasing a million dollar property and we just didn’t feel comfortable with them. Collins Group Realty made us feel comfortable immediately. We wanted a realtor who would listen to our needs and then work hard to help us find something that met those needs. Collins Group Realty will do that and will treat with you with respect and friendship. They are our realtor for life!
Mr. and Mrs. McRee – Buyer 2013
I found Collins Group realty online. I started using their search feature and found it to be much better than Zillow. After talking with our agent, I set up automatic alerts for the property I was looking for. If it wasn’t for the combination of alerts (the market moves fast) and the quick response I received from my agent, I would never have been able to buy my properties. In addition, my agent gave me expert advice and detailed pictures which gave me the confidence to buy sight unseen.
Mr. and Mrs. William Eddy – Buyer 2013
My sister-in-law emailed realtor friends all over the country for the best real estate salesperson in Hilton Head. Within 4 or 5 minutes, 9 people emailed her back and said Chip Collins was “the man!”
Sherry Freeman – Seller 2013
Collins Group Realty had all the answers before we had the questions. Our agent took the time to introduce us to the mortgage broker, insurance agent and closing attorney. Additionally, they found us the perfect home!
Mr. and Mrs. David Mathews – Buyer 2013
The excellent service started with our first meeting with Chip Collins and continued through to closing. The sales brochure, including photos of our house and the description, was terrific. Then an open house of realtors was held within two days of listing on the MLS. But the most impressive aspect of the service was the follow-up. The details related to selling our house while at the same time preparing to buy another one were sometimes overwhelming. But in addition to staying on top of the process and ensuring we were making good decisions, Chip was a calming influence that was greatly appreciated.
Mr. and Mrs. Alan Protheroe – Seller 2013
You made a life long dream a reality. You made the process easy for us. You never wasted any of our time and made the experience very enjoyable.
Mr. and Mrs. John Godinsky – Buyer 2013
Our agent was excellent. We feel that she went above and beyond our expectations for a real estate agent! Very easy to work with and could not have more helpful in finding a condo that fit our needs.
Mr. and Mrs. Bryan Edwards – Buyer 3013
My experience with Collins Group Realty was above and beyond the call of duty. Our agent worked with me from step on to the finish line with no delays in communication. I felt like my agent and Collins Group Realty had my best interest at heart and I am more than grateful to be in the dream home I am today.”
Mr. Jeffrey Ford – Buyer 2013
We have worked with several realtors but have never worked with such a professional and caring team as Collins Group Realty. Our agent worked FOR us and looked out for our best interest. She did everything we asked in a timely manner. if we had questions or concerns, she took care of them even if it was after office hours. If we have need of a real estate agent in the future it will be with Collins Group Realty.
Mr. and Mrs. Ron Lippard – Buyer 2012
Our agent was very knowledgeable of the area and one of the nicest people I have ever met. He helped us for about 3 years to get to this point and we are grateful to him for his help and understanding. This was hard for us and our agent made it better, a true gentleman!
Mr. Dan Brassard – Buyer 2012
During the entire process, Chip was always there for us. The open lines of communication made a complicated situation go as smoothly as possible. It was a pleasure working with Chip and the entire Collins Group. We would definitely recommend him to our friends and family. We knew we were in good hands!
Mr. and Mrs. Mark Adelman – Seller 2012
Collins Group Realty has the best website for searching a range of property types by location. The website allowed us to refine our searches, change our criteria, and refine again. Collins Group contacted us immediately to answer any questions we had. Our realtor was also able to help us with creative options, and answer detailed questions on expenses, utility bills, etc. The level of service and support provided enabled us to find the right property and make arrangements for all of the inspections and closing requirements.
Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Tufft – Buyer 2012
When my brother passed away, I was facing the challenge of selling a property almost 1500 miles from where I live. I was unfamiliar with the market and the Island. I did some online research and Chip was my first call based on the reviews I read. From day one, Chip was there to handle everything. I flew into Hilton Head and met with him. He and his staff held onto the key and helped when it was time let in the cleaners and utility companies. They also helped line up necessary repair work. It was a huge help. The communication from Chip and Ollie was outstanding.
Mr. Scott Arvig – Seller 2012
I would like to single out my agent for her untiring efforts to close the short sale at the most favorable circumstances for me, and work the buying end to devise a creative owner-financing strategy which allowed me to purchase a house much quicker than would have otherwise been possible. My analogy for my agents is a highly-professional and personable pit-bull terrier. She never once said “that’s not my job” while many others did. When there was a hole to fill, Pam was very quick to take charge on any task that would get us to our goal.
Mr. John McNeil – Buyer/Seller 2012
Since I am a Managing Broker of a large real estate office in Atlanta with 80 agents, I live and breath real state on a daily basis. It takes a lot to impress me since I’ve been in the business for 26 years. My agent was very impressive and we were thrilled with the service he provided. His response time to any question or call was always immediate. I tried to talk him into moving to Atlanta to join my office!
Mr. and Mrs. Charles McPherson – Buyer 2012
Working with our agent was like working with a best friend. She listens to what the client needs and wants and tries her best to make it happen. Our house hunting was enjoyable and fun and our agent helped me not stress out over buying a new home. I appreciate her congenial personality that compliments her working relationship with her clients.
Ms. Nancy Fontana – Buyer 2012
Collins Group Realty allowed us to take our time (almost 2 years!) perusing their website, tagging listings we found interesting. When we were finally ready to look in person, our agent was patient and so helpful. He really went above and beyond in lining up places for us to see and handling the walk-thru and closing. Very satisfied!
Mr. and Mrs. Robert Harbron – Buyer 2012
It had been many years (42) since we had purchased property. Our Collins agent walked us through every step of our purchase. We bought a Foreclosure townhouse in Bluffton and the paperwork could have been overwhelming if not for the help of the Collins Group. We are delighted with the wonderful restaurants, shopping and friendly people in Bluffton. Our townhouse and Millcreek are a joy!
Mr. and Mrs. Dick Holden – Buyer 2012
Collins Group Realty made the home buying process easy. Our agent found me the perfect house for my family at the perfect price. Everyone at Collins Group Realty was helpful and caring and made the process go smoothly, even though I was out of state. I highly recommend them!!
Mr. Seth Kiyper – Buyer 2012
We had visited HHI and always wanted to own there. I visited the website for information and received a call from our agent. Our agent worked with us for 4 weeks by email. When we arrived on the Island, she had lined up our requested houses to view. She answered our questions but applied no pressure. We made our decision and she and the other staff “held our hand” through the complete process. It made us feel that we were the only concern of the company throughout the process. The process we dreaded was quite an enjoyable experience. We feel we made friends already on the Island.
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Milloway – Buyer 2012
We found Chip and the Collins Group personable, dynamic and effective. They sold our homes in less than a month. Very impressed.
Keith Bogart and Kay Haislip – Seller 2012
Collins Group Realtyis very true to their words, “Structured to Serve.” This experience has been very smooth. They kept me updated on everything and made it possible for my family to obtain their first home.
Mertis Gadson – Buyer 2012
After meeting our agent, my wife and I were very satisfied with the level of service she provided. Collins Group goes above and beyond for their clients and excel in their knowledge and expertise of the Hilton Head area properties.
Richard Zapczynski – Buyer 2012
Collins Group (especially our agent) quickly became a near-family type relationship. Buying a retirement home from another state was a difficult decision. Constant communication and having a really “trustworthy” person dealing on our behalf helped the transaction move smoothly and comfortable.
Dot Rushworth – Buyer 2012
We recently purchased a townhouse in Bluffton. Our agent must be the most knowledgeable person on your staff. He explained everything upfront, walked with us through each step and answered all of our questions. He is a jewel!
Brenda Holden – Buyer 2012
Our agent was attentive to my needs as a first time home buyer. He was extremely flexible when it came to setting up times to get together. He knows the value of great customer service and I could not have had a better experience.
Alixandra Scremmer – Buyer 2012
The associates of Collins Group Realty are the ultimate professionals in every phase of the process – market analysis, listing, showing, communication and the closing.
Helen Adams – Seller 2012
Mr. and Mrs. Blake Adams – Buyer 2012
Our agent was great to work with and I have sung his praises to everyone who has asked who I listed my home with. He and his staff did an outstanding job all the way through.
Sylvio Maestro – Seller 2012
I researched Hilton Head real estate for more than one year, making daily use of your website – which is outstanding. I’ve been in the Internet business for 17 years, operate multiple Internet firms and I found your website and email alerts incredible in terms of their usefulness and timeliness. I’ve maintained more than a dozen separate searches across five plantations, and identified more than one hundred favorites. Your website has no peer in the Hilton Head real estate market. Once I located our agent through your team, I knew I had a keeper. She managed my comprehensive search, evolving requirements, many days of showings, offers on multiple properties, and my persnickety attention to detail with extraordinary professionalism and grace.
Barry Harrigan – Buyer 2012
We talked with two of your past sellers and they said they got great results, fast and right on with the current market which is what we needed. Through a careful presentation of the market activity, our agent got us priced right and we had two offers. He worked tirelessly after the contract was signed to get us results.
Joan Eggers – Seller 2012
From the start, our agent was quick to respond to my inquiry. Each time we met she provided a terrific overview of the island, plantations, benefits and drawbacks of each location. We do not live on the island so we really appreciated the honest input. her knowledge of the island was invaluable. I travel all over the world with my business and honestly, I get very frustrated with how many companies have lost touch with the value of providing a great customer experience. I was so impressed with the entire Collins Group organization in truly respecting and delivering a quality service from start to finish. Home buying, in this case, should always be like this: a very seamless transaction with little stress.
Glenn Walls – Buyer 2012
Dr. Hans and Ursula Schmitt – Seller 2012
When we decided to list our home in Windmill Harbour, we interviewed three different real estate agencies. We selected Collins Group Realty because of their emphasis on serving the customer. We were not disappointed. Chip and his team are very responsive, accommodating, and internet savvy. We appreciated their knowledge, solutions and utmost integrity in solving each issue that appeared. It’s nice to go through this process feeling like you have a friend at your side.
Mr. and Mrs. Uber – Seller 2011
In the summer of 2011, our agent showed us many units in Sea Pines. This allowed us to learn about the area and narrow down locations we were interested in. He did an excellent job and we learned what we needed to in order to make an informed decision in June of 2012. Thank for making buying real estate in Sea Pines a positive and easier than expected endeavor! This was a fun and professional experience from the initial showing of properties through the closing. We love our Villa!!!!!!!!
Mona Siwiec – Buyer 2012
How do you find a good realtor when you live 5 hours away and know of no one that can recommend someone? You take chances. We “signed up” on numerous realtor sites and your agent was the only one that called to offer her help. She wasn’t pushy at all but we could tell from our first conversation that she knew the area and gave us great information in that first call. She was indeed a great realtor. Collins Group also offered a specialist with closing which helped make that long distance closing a breeze. We couldn’t be any more pleased with the service.
James Osberg – Buyer 2011
Collins Group Realty provided first rate professional service from start to finish. We felt comfortable from the beginning of our search to the closing and Collins Group Realty was there every step of the way. We highly recommend Collins Group Realty.
Andy Giannella and Alicia Poinsatte – Buyer 2011 and 2012
We closed in a week on a foreclosure and our agent kept on it every day and was with me through the process all day long! A very effortless closing!
Joseph Seratelli – Buyer 2009, 2011, and 2012
The Collins Group are a full service real estate group. They are fast and
effective in all aspects of buying a home. They were prepare to and did answer
any question that we had during our search.
Paul Keating – Buyer 2011
Collins Group Realty is a well-oiled team, tops in the local market. Every employee with whom I had the experience of contacting was always courteous and helpful.
William Sawtel – Seller 2011
My agent was always available to answer questions, give advice and generally hold my hand through the whole process. She understood my financial situation and how important it was for me to sell my house and she worked hard to achieve that end. She did a great job of staying in touch with me and letting me know what was happening. She gave me good, solid advice on what I needed to do to sell the house. She made me feel like she took a personal interest in my situation. I felt like she gave 100% to me and I’m very grateful for her help. I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor.
Susan Deichmiller – Seller 2011
Collins Group Realty went out of their way to help us find a condo that would suit our needs at a most affordable price. Their skills are impeccable and we are very pleased with our outcome.
Karen Zook – Buyer 2011
I was put in touch with an agent with my first call to your office. The agent was very helpful and knowledgeable and this instilled confidence in us to deal with the Collins Group.
Nick Botha – Buyer 2011
Our agent went above and beyond her duty to hold our small deal together when things started to go bad. We never would have closed on this property without her diligence.
Debora Becerra – Buyer 2011
Everyone was very nice and helpful. Our agent showed us the type of properties that she knew we’d be interested in. She knew we were on our vacation and didn’t want to waste time being shown things that were not going to work for us. This efficiency helped us be able to buy our condo and enjoy our vacation.
