"Successfully Selling the North Shore for Over 25 Years"
“I always want the best for my clients”
– Colleen McGinnis
A real estate veteran of over 25 years and a long time North Shore resident, Colleen McGinnis has both the experience and the devotion to real estate to get deals done in any market. Colleen is sensitive to the fact that buying and selling a home is a very personal experience, and strives to make the process a seamless experience.
Colleen works with both buyers and sellers and is an expert in negotiations, having dealt with numerous types of transactions over her lengthy career. Colleen thrives on the strategy behind the deal, and has never put her clients in jeopardy of missing out on what they desire.
“From the initial meeting Colleen was prepared, eager and attentive. She was straightforward in her assessment of our home and its potential value and presented us with a concise plan. She clearly knew her market.”
A people-person, Colleen’s clients are always her first priority. She understands the business, and she knows how other agents operate. Connections are important to her; with clients or others in the industry. Hard work has earned Colleen respect from the real estate community, as well as a solid reputation with other agents.
“Colleen sees the big picture and can keep a deal going forward, regardless of the level of professionalism on the other side of the transaction. A true professional, she is strictly business with a warm and patient client-focused practice.”
A lover of homes, real estate was always a field that intrigued Colleen before she made it her career. For Colleen, the root of it all, is that she really believes in what she does. Whether it’s volunteering, teaching children or selling homes, she will throw her heart and soul into whatever she focuses on.
“We strongly recommend Colleen McGinnis as a professional and reliable realtor. We have used her services during the buying and selling of several of our homes. She is efficient and very knowledgeable, especially in the pricing of houses within the current market. She is easy to work with, very professional, and always open to questions of any kind.”
My goal for each client is to make them feel as if they are the only people I am working with and that they have my full attention at all times. I am always accessible when my clients are in need, and my job is to do the best I can for you, no matter what it takes.
I understand that buying or selling a home is a personal endeavor, and my goal is for my clients to always trust me completely, and know that their best interest is the only thing that is important.

She is a goal oriented professional...knowledgeable, energetic, creative...with a congenial personality and strong work ethic and exceptional communication skills.
