— Debby and Dan, absentee owners - Highland Beach
Claire remains to take full charge of all my ancillary needs whether I occupy my unit or not. It’s more than an investment for me, it’s a lifelong commitment of which Claire is a vital asset. Claire not only surpassed my level of expectations, she improved upon them! Claire is a class act whose expertise, honesty and capability make anyone who interacts with her shine brighter!
— Mary, resident - Delray Beach
For nearly a decade, Claire has helped me build and manage a real estate portfolio, identifying quality properties in the right location. My biggest fear with brokers is that they try too hard to sell what they know, and don’t take the time to understand what I want! Claire worked hard to educate me about this particular market before pushing particular properties on me.
— Michael, investor - New York
Claire, I have worked with a few other real estate people and I just want to say you are way above the standard. You marketed an unusual property, dealt first with high maintenance buyers then a difficult seller at the end. You provided me with good advice and took the heat for me on more than one occasion. In the end you got it done. Awesome.
— Nick, land owner - New Zealand
It is hard for me to express sufficiently the level of appreciation that my family and myself are experiencing after the efforts that you and your firm have made to assist with the sale of this apartment. Help with clearance and tidying, moving and the removals. Negotiations with a very difficult purchaser, his lawyer and with the management company and the realtors. You even attended the final walk through. All with the expertise and experience which was missing from this side.

The lengths to which you have gone to help with the disposing of the contents and storage of some of the remainder. To sit and help Harold sift through old photographs and office papers is well above the call.

None of the above takes account or even mentions the general care and kindness you have given to an ageing couple in need of help. The patience you have shown to them is beyond measure and makes a mockery of calling you a good broker. You are a genuinely good person as has been shown throughout.

After I left Florida on 5th August you just took over in a manner which I could never have expected. You kept me informed at every turn and, when required, solved problems without further reference.

I`ll be happy to recommend your services to anyone who enquires. It will be my pleasure.

About Me

MY NAME IS Claire Collins

I started my career as a house manager/private secretary to British aristocracy in Monte-Carlo, managing the day to day demanding role of scheduling personal affairs and ad hoc projects for diversified business interests, both social and professional.

After immigrating to the United States and raising three children, I launched myself back towards my passion which is real estate and the management and upkeep of homes.

After a decade in pre-construction and new-construction and working with customers from the ground up, I realized that I had a natural ability to help people plan, make choices and help them understand the complexities of home ownership in South Florida, where the climate is so different from most parts of the world and other States. I was asked by many clients if I would watch over their properties in their absence, and have been able to build my business  on client referrals and relationships.

Whether you need full time management services or just some help from time to time, a cleaning company or a plumber, a secretary for the day or an interpretation/transcription of an important document, a ride to the airport or someone to organize your closets - or even the total refurbishing of an investment property you have purchased - my team of professionals can get the job done.

Give us a call for a free consultation. We look forward to working with you!
