What my clients are saying  

We went with Collins Realty Group because they offered the full service that other Brokers were offering, but for only 4% instead of 5% or 6%. And they did a lot of other things the other Brokers could not do, and they were all for free. They provided a Home Inspection by a licensed Indiana Home Inspector. They built us a custom Website with our address as the URL. They helped us stage the home with a Certified Staging Professional. And they provided Drone Video and Photography by a FAA Licensed Drone Pilot. They said they did all this to help sell our home quickly and make the transaction as easy as possible for us. It worked. The transaction went very smoothly. Our house was opened for appointments to view on Friday, August 21st. By Saturday, August 22nd, we had 7 requests to view, 5 offers (2 for full price) and we accepted one of those. The closing was set for October 2nd and was closed on time. It couldn’t have been any better. Jeff and Kirsten Limbaugh
