Working with Colin Delaney was a wonderful experience. He is very familiar with all of the neighborhoods in Costa Mesa and it was a great asset to me while I was shopping for homes in the area. Colin was quick to respond to my many questions in both email and over the phone and was patient and willing to educate me on the process of buying a house as we moved along. My particular deal was a messy short sale and he stayed on top of all of the paperwork and deadlines that we had to meet in order to close the purchase. I would certainly recommend Colin to anyone looking for a good agent. – Randy H.- Bought 3165 Sicily, Costa Mesa CA 92626
As an lender who deals with lots of agents, I want to tell you what a fabulous job you did selling the house I lived in here in Mesa Verde. Thanks Colin! It was a pleasure working with you, I would gladly recommend your services to anyone I know looking to buy/sell in the Costa Mesa area. Best, Megan – Sold 2037 Mandarin Drive, Costa Mesa
Colin is fantastic, I cannot say enough good things about him. My family was in a complicated situation, both our parents passed away in a short period of time and we had to deal with the estate quickly. I had a family member living in the house that was ill and resistant to the sale. Colin was so diplomatic and calm and kind that the family member was won over in a matter of minutes of meeting him. It was a difficult situation that Colin difused immediately, and he manuevered the escrow period brilliantly. Every step of the way, he went above and beyond the call of duty (even finding the family member a new place to live and handling the application process without charge). And I believe he really gave us sound advice and we made a very strong sale. I would use Colin again in a heartbeat. He is the best. – – Kim F. – Listed with Colin, Sold Pelican Drive, Costa Mesa
Colin was a fantastic agent to work with when purchasing our first home. He was honest about each place we saw and constantly pointed out things to look for or issues that we did not notice. I would recommend him to anyone. – Colby and Steve – Purchased 2502 University, Costa Mesa
Used Colin for a purchase and a sale and very glad i did. Excellent market knowledge, well respected in the neighborhood, understands the process and the styles of the other brokers, and provides timely and attentive counsel. I am a “difficult” client and he satisfied my needs admirably. Unwavering recommendation. – Michael S. – Sold and bought a home with Colin
COLIN WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND AND FOUND ME THE PERFECT HOUSE. HE ALSO HELPED ME THROUGH A VERY DIFICULT TIME WITH THE LENDER. COLIN WAS GREAT AT PREVIEWING HOMES AND WOULD DO ALL THE LEGWORK SO I WOULDN’T HAVE TO SEE EVERYTHING ON THE MARKET. HE REALLY “GOT” WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR. MOST OF ALL HE IS SUCH AN EXPERT IN COSTA MESA, HE REALLY KNOWS ALL THE NEIGHBORHOODS BETTER THAN ANYONE. – Joanne – Purchased 1065 Redding Avenue, Costa Mesa
As an attorney and a real estate broker I was estatic at what a good job you did selling our family home. We had a very challenging probate sale transaction, and you handled it very smoothly and very professionally. I enjoyed working with you and appreciate your professionalism and focus for such a small property. Happy New Year. –Ernie L. – Colin listed my family home on Royce Lane in Halecrest
Colin helped develop a successful marketing strategy to sell our house and suggested helpful tips to sell our home, including when to try to sell and how to enhance our home to obtain the best price. I was very impressed with the entire marketing approach. He readily agreed to meet with us at night after work and on weekends. He also worked tirelessly to help us negotiate the purchase of a new home with a difficult seller. Colin made himself available, was very personable and gave us good advice. We would definitely use him again. – Leslie & Ken Gerling – Listed 1865 Rhodes Drive with Colin
John is one of a kind. He is so dedicated to our community and the happiness of his clients. Thank you John for all you do for Costa Mesa!
After attempting 3 times over the last 5 years to start searching for an investment property, I found Colin who took the time to listen to what I wanted to do and lined up properties meeting my criteria. Other agents had simply put me on mailing lists with lots of properties that I had no interest in. He notified me of new properties that had just been listed, made suggestions, and played interfererance when I had issues with the bank. – – Bill Messick- Purchased a triplex as an investment, 2229 Rutgers Dr, Costa Mesa
