What People are Saying About Emilee Collins

Client Reviews

Emilee Collins is a highly knowledgeable REALTOR®. She helped us find the perfect piece of land for our dream home. She knew all the right questions to ask to make certain that the property would meet all our construction needs. I highly recommend her.

- A. Rutherford

We highly recommend Emilee Collins! Top notch Realtor. She was a pleasure to work with. Professional, timely, prompt on communicating with us. We were moving across country to be closer to family in Durham and being thousands of miles away added a another level to finding a house for us in the time frame we needed. Since we couldn’t be there she took the time to meet with our local family members to look at places for us, FaceTime us, text and emails. When we found the house that we wanted she was on it to the very end to make sure everything was in order. Through the process of buying our house we found that not only was she great to work with but she was respected by her colleagues and business associates on how she does business. Buying a house can be stressful but when you have a great team in your corner it makes a world of difference.

- J. Aubrey

We loved working with Emilee Collins while selling our house. She guided us through each step of the decision making process. It was clear to us that she has an in depth knowledge of the real estate market in our area.

- W. Mundy

It was such a pleasure to work with Emilee. She was professional, friendly, knowledgable, and helpful throughout our selling process. She has an excellent eye for staging and prep, and an array of helpful connections within the real estate community. Our home was listed within weeks of our consult, and under contract within 72 hours of listing. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell!

- L. Paulakonis

Emilee was FANTASTIC! She was a pleasure to work with, helped us in every situation that arose. When we missed making an offer by 10 minutes, she counter-offered just in case the 1st offer fell through. Emilee is very knowledgeable in ALL aspects of real estate. The first time she and her husband (building contractor/inspector) came over to look at our house and meet, it was like seeing your best friends. They walked through our home and property, sat down went over our questions and discussed all the things we would need to accomplish and encounter during the selling of our home. Sold in 20 days! We were ecstatic; even when we were emailing and accepting offers at midnight. She is a realtor that works for YOU, whether you're buying or selling. We felt like part of her family.

- M. & R. Wilson

"I have moved 30 times before our last move and Emilee handled it the best of them all. We moved from Ohio and had the most complicated situations come up and she helped navigate us through it all smoothly and successfully. She has experience beyond being a realtor that adds so much to her knowledge and expertise. If you need someone you can trust and depend on, is well connected for many local resources (she found us our movers and saved us when ours bailed!), and is simply a delight to work with, then Emilee is the best choice."

- S. Adams

Working with Emilee is an absolute breath of fresh air. She is highly committed, attentive, and was a constant source of calm strength during a very stressful and tight timeline for selling our home. She truly knows Orange County and put well-deserved value on the unique niche where we lived. Emilee was immensely helpful throughout the entire process -- from staging and photos to inspections, repairs and moving. Her kind, personable and genuine disposition combined with her classy professionalism is a rare gem!  We are incredibly thankful to have found her and would work with her again in a heartbeat.

- L. Edwards

We are delighted to offer a 5-Star review for Emilee Collins, REALTOR®. To put it simply, Emilee is the best real estate professional we have had the privilege to know. She worked with us for more than two years as we moved to North Carolina from another state and went through a lengthy transition process. Emilee neither pushed us nor lost patience throughout this process. When we were finally ready to buy a home, she was the quintessential professional in every phase of home buying. Emilee is extremely knowledgable of the real estate market and the financing arena. She guided us with expert advice every step of the way! More than that, Emilee showed such personal care and compassion toward us, guiding us in every detail of the process. Do yourself a favor and contact Emilee Collins if you are buying or selling a home!

- The Brewers

Emilee guided us through buying a home, then preparing our previous home for sale and selling it. It was a great comfort to have Emilee managing the process throughout – she made us aware of all the steps involved, alerted us to the timeliness of each step, advised us as to the applicability of each step to our particular situation, and had the local contacts to get each step accomplished promptly and properly. Emilee earned the trust and respect of everyone involved on either side of each transaction. We highly recommend her!

- R. Ferry

Professional, organized and will listen to what your needs are in a home. She also knows the right questions to ask if you aren’t quite sure. She is experienced and has many connections in the community and is happy to make recommendations if you are new to the area. What an all around great experience.

- A. Carter

High quality service, personable and friendly, attentional to detail, prompt

Our experience with Emilee at Collins Design Realty was an amazing one! The process for finding and purchasing the perfect lot for our future home was simple and stress free. Emilee was always available to answer any questions we had, and the purchase process was step by step with no surprises. We never doubted our best interests were being considered, and Collins Design Realty continues to remain in touch and willing to answer our questions post sale. We are very pleased with our Collins Design Realty experience and would most definitely recommend their services to anyone in the market for a land or home purchase.

- M. Twisdale

Emilee Collins is a sharp, class act who knows how to get a deal done. Whether selling or buying, she has a hawk eye for the details. While you're looking at the molding and closets, she is looking for home integrity issues. Emilee ensures that homes suit her clients long term. When selling a home, Emilee has impeccable taste for staging, and resources on hand for last minute repairs. All of this along with an incredibly big and warm heart. I recommend Emilee highly.

- Heather

Emilee listens to your needs, concerns and interests-- THEN goes about her investigative research of properties that might meet your needs. Not only is she well-informed and professional but is delightful to work with her! She helped our family think through the pros and cons of a property that met our needs but wasn't available at the best time for our future planning. We would not hesitate to recommend Emilee for any of your real estate needs.

- Cathy V.

Emilee dedicated a great deal of time to facilitating my home purchase. As a first time home buyer, I was apprehensive about the process. She provided the reassurance and expertise I needed to navigate the market efficiently and successfully. Emilee's approach is as comprehensive as it is personalized. I have immeasurable gratitude for her assistance and know-how!
- Steph

Thank you so much for all you did to sell my home and make my move go smoothly. I couldn't have been happier with the way in which you handled every step in the process, making it all clear and as easy for me as possible. You had great intuition about the changes I needed to make to my home before the photographer arrived which resulted in fantastic photographs of my home.
I can't imagine a more ideal combination of skills that you and Chad possess to help assist people in the selling and purchasing of homes. Your professionalism, efficiency and understanding was very much appreciated! I have already recommended your services to my family who will be making moves in the near future.
