Imagine trying to coordinate an Estate Auction and Estate Property Sale from over 175 miles away! Imagine interviewing multiple Auction Companies with the hope of finding that 'One' that would give you a sense of personable, accurate and efficient service. After interviewing multiple companies - right away I felt at home talking with Chris & Sandy Collins with their personable disposition. Their expertise and years of experience gave me the assurance needed to hire them for both the Estate Auction and Estate Property Sale. Chris Collins worked with me each step of the way from start to finish with the Estate Auction process. The crew worked hard not only with sorting the many items, but also on auction day to set everything up. Fortunately, the weather was cooperative auction day and Chris moved items quickly and efficiently. From start to finish – the auction was an overall success!

Sandy Collins was a delight to work with. She was prompt with returning phone calls, text messages, and emails. This was especially helpful with selling the property due to the distance. Sandy and Chris both made trips to the property assisting me with many details - again – very helpful due to the distance. From the property listing to the closing – the experience was positive and successful.

The beauty of this team is that they complement one another in a fantastic way. Chris, with his auction expertise and Sandy, with her property sales expertise. I would highly recommend them to any individual who is looking for an Auction Company or Real Estate Company. Thanks Team Collins for all your professional support and care in assisting me with selling the family Estate personal items and property. ~Pamela Burson

We first met Sandy in 2003 when she was with Ohio University Housing, and we were tenants. When we wanted to sell our house recently, we reached out to Sandy. That was a good decision on our part because she handled the listing and sale so quickly and effeciently, what more under the current unprcedented COVID environment. Sandy's knowledge and experience with the housing market coupled with her professionlism, ability and dedication to her work, and to her clients, made every step in the sale transaction process smooth and seamless.

Sandy has a positive attitude towards the tasks she performs. This can be clearly seen as she patiently answered our questions, listened to our converns, and offered us useful information to help us make decisions.

Sandy went above and beyond, driving to and from our house at our request, to help us get some things done such as turning the water mains on or off. She is a prolem-solver, getting a contrator to fix handrails in our house in record time!

In the end, what truly matters to Sandy is a happy seller and an equally happy and satisfied buyer. Writing this testimonial gives us a great opportunity to thank you, Sandy, for handling the sale of our property so effienctly, and with so much heart. We would certainly recommend you to our friends should they decide to make a sale or purchase.

Sandy Collins made the experience of finding a home in Athens very easy and was able to give great recommendations abou the local real estate market so I could make an educated choice among all the houses on the market.  She gives a lot of freedom to her clients to do some research on their own, make decisions, and ask questions.  She always responds to inquiries within only a couple of hours maximum on week days AND weekends.  She was alway very pro-active to set up house visits in a record time and decisively managed to negotiate a great deal  for my closing cost.  I will send any of my acquaintances looking for real estate to her without hesitation.

Sandy has been wonderful to work with, very informed, very professional and friendly. She was always available to talk to us, even on vacation. She is a very dedicated, go-getter realtor. We enjoyed purchasing our home due to her upbeat attitude and willingness to go the extra mile. She comes highly recommended by us.
