    Colin was super helping in helping find and purchase my home in San Francisco. While looking at properties, he helped point out insights that wasn't immediately noticeable. He rearranged his schedules so that we could see numerous places when available. He was there to help me find my home and not just sell a unit. He helped navigate and kept communications with all parties during the purchase process. We had numerous snags during this phase and Colin went out of his way to try to rectify these by exploring different options and going above and beyond to keep things moving along. His contacts also helped secure a low interest rate as well. When I finally go the keys, he went out of his way to help me move some things over so that I could begin experiencing my new home sooner. I truly appreciated all of his help throughout and definitely recommend him for your real estate needs.

    Colin is an ALL-STAR real estate agent. Colin is very responsive and enthusiastic. He has a great work ethic and we appreciated his style - we've never felt pressured to make an offer on a house that we didnt like. It was fun touring with him, and he often had informative thoughts on the houses we saw. He's very open to show us many houses and a wide variety, and we've had many tours with him that helped us get the right house. We appreciate all the Colin have done for us and we would love to work with him again

    Colin blew me away with his knowledge of Berkeley and architecture. He also exceeded my expectations by accommodating my busy schedule, even meeting me into the evening for showings. If you are a first time home buyer, I think Colin will provide you with an unparalleled experience.

    We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Colin Elbasani and his team. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. Colin is honest, hands-on, and he really helped to take the pressure off of us. Colin truly goes above and beyond for the entirety of the home buying process. Ultimately, Colin is a pleasant surprise who will not only help you navigate the troublesome waters of the real estate market, but make it an enjoyable and fun experience as well.

    I had the pleasure of dealing with Colin for the sale of my Berkeley house located at 1347 La Loma Avenue. The house had been rented for several years and was in need of much TLC before it could be put on the market, Being a local Berkeley person, Colin suggested the right companies for the work to be done and even invested some of his time in performing tasks.I was amazed by his dedication and professionalism. Once the house was ready for viewing he hand-crafted a flyer that he then distributed door to door in the neighborhood. Also, he invited neighbors to a party/open house held only for them, He spent many long hours and days holding the house open. In addition, upon entering the premises they were greeted not only with a pleasant welcome, but with music, and an abundance of delicacies and drinks for both adults and children, including fresh baked cookies prepared by Colin himself. The house actually sold because Colin kept the house open longer than usual thus resulting in a quick sale due to all his efforts, He has my highest recommendation!

    Colin is a great real estate agent. I just bought a multi unit in Silicon Valley and Colin was absolutely fantastic. Professional, courteous, knowledgeable and diligent in his work. Colin has a lot of patience and we now consider him a friend. No other realtor would of gone above and beyond like Colin. We will definitely be using him in future investments.

    Colin is absolutely great. He is a fierce negotiator and his relentless nature always got us the information we needed to make an educated decision. Colin is not like every realtor: IN IT FOR THE MONEY. We never got the sense that Colin didn't care. He is such a nice, caring and honest human being. Before listing our home he pressure washed it for us, helped us paint a few rooms and even helped us move things out of our storage. Colin is THE BEST realtor in the East Bay. Hands down, THE BEST.

    Colin Elbasani was essential in making the purchase of our home, 'happen'. We were so lucky that my wife happen to discover him. We were in the market for a new home in Hercules and my wife had her sights on this particular home which wasn't even on the market. Colin did some checking and it turned out the owners were interesting in selling and after some very skillful negotiations by Colin we were able to secure a reasonable price. Then came the loan process, through Colin's contacts were guided through a difficult loan process. At several points this deal could have fallen through, but thanks to Colin's determination & persistence he in large part made it happen. Through the whole process Colin has gone the extra mile to help our dream come true. This is why I highly recommend Colin Elbasani to help you with your real estate purchases.

    Colin exceeded expectations in all respects. Every time I called, he would answer. Every question I had, there was a thoughtful response. He prepared all of the bid/closing materials with speed and skill and guided us through a smooth closing in ~20 days. I can't think of any way Colin could have been more thoughtful or dedicated and I know we had the best possible outcome. Fantastic guy, would recommend to anyone and everyone.

    10 days and $30K above asking. It doesn't get much better than that. From Day ONE Colin was patient, informative and always thought outside the box. We followed his suggestions to the letter and it paid GREAT dividends. He definitely KNOWS his real estate and has amazing knowledge of the Bay Area market. Everything he shared with us turned out to be accurate. He's a great personality with high energy. You can't go wrong with choosing Colin for all your real estate needs.

    I enjoyed working with Colin, He was very friendly and we hit off immediately. He was very knowledgeable and aa real go getter. He understood my needs. He was very accessible at night and on the weekends. He explained each step, every offer, every contract line by line and made sure I understood everything. He listened to all my concerns. We found a house I am very happy with my purchase and would work with him again if I ever decided to buy another house.

    To say Colin goes above and beyond would be an understatement. He is dedicated to his clients to the nth degree. He gets to know you and your taste and he then leaves no stone unturned in trying to find the perfect fit for your needs. His local knowledge, keen eye, engineers mind means that he won't take you to see anything and everything. He does not waste your time, instead provides you with a detailed, bespoke list of potentially perfect options, and then steps back, and let's you decide. He does not crowd, he does not force his opinion but he also is honest. Colin knows the Bay Area spy style and is always one step ahead. He also understands the market and its twists and turns. It is surprising he has not been doing this for 30 years. If it is genuine, insightful, efficient, thoughtful input that you are looking for, Colin is the realtor for you. And when it comes to putting in your offer, the relevant accurate paperwork is in your inbox almost before you are off the phone telling him you want to put in an offer. He is quite simply fantastic. The utmost professional. Thank you Colin for helping us and securing us a dream family home.

    Best experience I could possibly have imagined. Colin made our dream home a reality. In fact, he made our dream manifest itself as though he were a genie.

    Colin works very hard to make sure that his clients are completely satisfied with their Coldwell Banker experience. He has impressive attention to detail and is always available to help out. Colin is enthusiastic, very very smart, and does not stop until he gets the job done, whether one is buying or selling. In this crazy California market, having Colin in your corner is the best choice ever. He's a rare find. If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with him, do so!

    I cannot speak highly enough of Colin's efforts in helping us purchase our home. Of all the agents I have ever worked with, Colin is the only one that answered my call, no matter what time of the day it is -- to answer my queries or sooth my anxieties. He is relentless and generous, not only with his time, but also with his wealth of real estate knowledge. He is not the kind of agent who is just interested in making a good sell, he is a fantastic negotiator who believes in getting his clients the best deal on a home they truly love. He will see 3000 homes with you, without complaints, until you find one that is just right. I highly recommend him as an agent. The process of finding a house in the Bay is terrifying, but Colin can help make the process, actually enjoyable.

    Colin was the most tenacious and dedicated Real Estate Agent/Realtor that I have ever worked with; day after day he would continue to stay in contact, providing consistent updates on properties and keeping myself and my wife motivated in purchasing a property in one of the most competitive housing markets in the USA. Besides the aforementioned, he provided transparent advice on cost and value, and has a personal passion for real estate and renovation projects. When closing on our property his negotiation skills were outstanding - he managed to get the purchase price down to an incredibly lower rate than the property was later evaluated at! I would highly recommend Colin to any buyer or seller. His optimism, determination, negotiating skills and knowledge of the Bay Area property market is second to none.

    Colin is a great realtor. He understands what you are looking for in a home and will go the extra mile to help you find it. He helped my husband and I find the perfect home, well within our budget. Working with Colin didn't feel like interacting with a realtor, it was more like working with a friend. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends when they need to buy a home.

    I was put in contact with Colin Elbasani by the Zip Realty web interface. It was not my intention to take him on as my realtor since I'm only helping out a friend with looking into making a real estate investment. Nevertheless Colin has been very helpful in suggesting potential opportunities that fit what we were looking for, even though he won't be the buyer's agent. Colin took the time to meet in person to discuss the generalities of what we are looking for.

    I have known Colin for years, when I had my gallery and frame shop in Berkeley. He is truly an honest and genuine person. Colin has been looking and showing me what is available in the market and giving me the options which are open to my wife and I. Like so many in this area, affordability as well as a safe environment are important to us. Colin has been very instrumental in navigating the world of home buying.
