My primary thought process is always the Golden Rule. My best intention and driving principle are to treat you, my clients, the way you want to be treated as if I was your client and you were my Realtor. I started my Real Estate career in 1987 in the title industry and became a Realtor in 2006. I career as a Realtor started in Catonsville, and I was rated one of the Top 100 of my former Brokerage. In 2016 I transferred to Ellicott City where I was part of my office’s No. 1 team for four years.

In January 2021, I was invited to join Northrop Realty, Northrop Realty provides its agents with the tools to succeed. The administrative staff is behind you and has provided me with the tools to be successful, so successful that I was rated one of the Top 20 agents in the Brokerage since moving my license.

I take my responsibilities as Realtor very seriously and enjoy working with my clients and turning them into friends. The relationship does not end at the settlement table; our relationship goes beyond that. My clients always call me a resource, and I do work by referral. I am never too busy for your referrals.

I currently reside in Catonsville; have lived here for the past 30 years. I service the Catonsville area, the Baltimore Area and the surrounding counties.

I am from a large family, the last of eight children; my family is the backbone of the person I have become. I attribute this mainly to my late parents, who taught me to work hard for what I need, pray for what I want, and that nothing is handed to us.

In December 2015, I had the honor and the privilege of being part of a fantastic adventure. I was part of the Living Donor Kidney Transplant, an eight-way kidney exchange program. I donated my kidney to someone who needed it, and in exchange, my family member received a kidney. I was unable to donate directly.

“So much of what is best in us is bound up in our love of family, that it remains the measure of our stability because it measures our sense of loyalty.” – Haniel Long.

I love what I do, and being around others, helping and gaining trust in all my relationships is very important. Many will attest to my character as a person. Doing a job well, valuing what one does, having a sense of purpose, and being a part of a more excellent vision or plan is vital. Remember me whether you are purchasing or selling your home or perhaps if you know someone looking to do just that.

“To give real service, you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.” – Douglas Adams.

I am looking forward to working with you!

What My Clients Are Saying

“Working with Colleen was fantastic! She made selling my home such a breeze. She was such a great communicator! She was quick to respond to any of my questions or concerns and took care of all the little details I didn’t think of. Colleen kept me informed along the way leading up to closing. She worked well with her colleagues to get paperwork sent over quickly to get signed. Colleen had so much knowledge about my community and property when I called on her to help me sell my home. Colleen was such a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with her again in the future! I would recommend Colleen to any family or friend to help them with their home buying or selling process.”


“Colleen is a fantastic agent who does a great job no matter which side she is representing! She has helped us buy 2 homes and sell 2 homes. Most recently, she helped us go under contract for the sale of our home in less than a day and for substantially over asking. We wouldn't use anyone else!”

“We had an absolutely wonderful experience working with Colleen in both buying and selling our house! She is extremely knowledgeable and provided excellent advice in all phases of buying and selling. Her guidance with how to prepare our house to be put on the market led us to sell our home well over asking! We recommend her to all of our friends and family!”


“Colleen is top notch! She goes above and beyond in every way. She works tirelessly making sure you have all the information you will need so every process goes smooth. She will support you in every way through the entire process. Her attention to detail and professionalism are to be commended. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a real estate agent!”


“Colleen was amazing to work with. She was very responsive and took care of all the details. Our house sold very quickly and for over ask. Next time I’m looking to buy or sell I will definitely be calling on Colleen. Thanks again!”

Michael Fields

“Colleen did a great job streamlining the process for us and adapted well to changes in our timeline to put our home on the market. She was highly accessible, helped us find an agent in the region we were moving to, and got us in touch with people to offer quotes on repairs. She is very well connected with local contractors and people to jump in and lend a hand. The entire process from hiring to the closing of the house was 2.5 months and she made life easy with a priority-based to-do list that included repairs, cosmetic updates, and reminders to make sure the home was clean. If you need to sell your home quickly and have an agent who doesn't beat around the bush and will set realistic expectations, then Colleen will be great for you!”


“Colleen is relentless in the best way possible! She never stopped looking out for us through every step of the process. She was on top of every detail every second. Very responsive, bubbly and funny. 100% recommend her for your realtor needs. If you’re a firefighter or first responder she’s your lady. She comes from a firefighter family and has a program that helps first responders, never looking for a handout but it was a very welcome sight to have a check cut back to me at closing when every dollar helps. Colleen was great and I honestly recommend her, she’s always working for you.”

John Rebovich

“Ms Colleen is absolutely amazing. This is not my 1st home purchase, however this was the easiest process. Ms Colleen kept everyone in the loop step by step. At all times I knew exactly what was going on. My closing took 3 weeks. Moving forward this is my agent of choice.”


“Colleen was fantastic. We were selling my mother-in-law's home after she passed away, and lived about 2 hours away from the property. This was not a problem for Colleen. She foresaw potential problems and was able to head them off before they became significant.The buyers were difficult, but Colleen was able to navigate every issue. She kept us informed via phone call or text, and also kept a good record of documents which we could access through our e-mail. We feel so blessed to have worked with Colleen. She even helped us with finding local services needed to sell the property (grass cutting, various water tests). On top of all of this, Colleen was kind. She never spoke down to me, and did a great job explaining to me (sometimes twice!) the intricate details of what is needed in buying/selling a property. We aren't planning on moving or buying/selling any property soon, but if something comes up and it is in Colleen's area, she is getting a call from us!”


“Working with Colleen was a fantastic experience! She helped us buy our first home and was integral to the process. She's a fantastic communicator and works diligently to make sure what you want is what you get. She is/was very knowledgeable of the areas and the home-buying process and we look forward to working with her and her team again in the future!”
