We met Linda and Michael in the spring of 2019. We had lived in the neighborhood for many years and seen their “For Sale” signs often, so we guessed they were the ones to go to when it came time to sell our home. We guessed right! We went into contract with the builder on our new home and (after months of careful planning) unexpectedly had to sell our property in Evergreen in a hurry. Linda and Michael were fantastic! Their expertise in pricing our home was truly impressive. Linda was indispensable in finding contractors and handymen to do some last minute fixing up, and guiding us through the process of selling. Ultimately, we sold in 7 days at $20k over asking (which was about $50k more than we thought we could get!). On the other end, Linda helped us through the process of buying new construction and identifying a fantastic mortgage broker to work with. Ultimately we got a better rate than the builders lender could offer. The Colar team was great to work with and was a great benefit to us on both ends of the process. We can’t recommend them highly enough.  Art Ferdinand and Kim Mjaseth


It was a pleasure working with Linda and Michael. Extremely professional, efficient, and friendly, they helped us sell our home and walked us through every step with patience. We felt they truly cared for us and wanted to make the sale of our home as successful as possible.  David & Margaret Richardson


Michael was attentive and very professional in the dealings with the whole process in selling my house.  He was patient and was so accommodating where he made a dozen two-hour round trips to my house to go over all the paperwork involved in selling my house.  I recommend him highly as a Realtor for selling or buying a house.  Lois Chiang


Aloha Linda. You have been a Godsend to us!  I'm not sure if anyone else would have been so conscientious, thorough and such a pleasure to work with! Also, you made the process seamless even with us living in Hawaii and our properties in California!  Thank you for everything.  Howard and Rose Young


I have had the pleasure of working with Linda Colar two times within the past few years. My first experience with working with Linda was in 2012, she worked with me over the course of several months to find a home in a very competitive market at the time. Linda’s office was located approximately 40 min away from my target area and she never failed to accompany me to all my home viewings whether they were private showings or to an open house I could simply have gone to on my own. She made the time to accompany me to do her due diligence in learning more of what I was looking for, to answer my questions and to develop relationships with the realtors to gather an understanding of what the sellers were looking for.     After closing the sale of my home in 2012 Linda continued to stay in touch periodically. She followed up with me asking me if everything was okay, she went over and beyond to make certain she put me in touch with contacts to assist me with getting some projects done – many things not required of your realtor after the close of your home.  Linda staying in touch throughout the years and her personable and diligent service lead me right back to her when it was time for me to expand and make another move. In early 2019 I contacted Linda and she jumped right in and didn’t miss a beat with assisting my husband and I in finding our home. Her experience, professionalism and her people skills helped us through a bidding war on our house and even helping us beat out an all cash offer with having us really personalizing our (not so all cash) offer package. She did an amazing job. And I have no doubt that if it were not for Linda, I would not be in my house today if it weren’t for her developing the relationship with the selling agent, her experienced negotiation skills and guidance to close the deal.     I unequivocally would use Linda again and recommend her expertise, especially to assist in a tough and competitive market.  Linda Belin-Harris


The Colar Team is outstanding!  They went the distance with us during a tough and problematic time.  Our problems became theirs and they were more than professional and understanding and helped in ways others would never have.  They made a very difficult transition workable and tolerable.  The advice and counsel they gave, helping us through all the steps of selling our home of 26 years was priceless.  Manny and I are very lucky we found The Colar Team.  We could not have done this without their skill, patience, and knowledge of the industry.  We thank them with our utmost admiration.  Leona and Manny Jurado


First of all merry Christmas to you and your family.  We are so very thankful for the two of you.  Selling and buying a home is no longer a simple process.  Having you all as our advocates was truly a blessing.  I wish all the various "professionals" that we dealt with throughout the process had even half the competence and integrity that you all exhibited daily.  We look forward to inviting you all over for dinner in the new year.  Arthur and Debbra Markham


We chose the Colar Team because of Michael canvassing our neighborhood for years. When we decided to sell our house, they were the first choice. The last time we sold a house was 39 years ago, so it was a total change from what we remember.     I called and spoke to Linda we arranged a time for her and Michael to come see our house that was the end of January. They put our minds at ease as to how best to handle the selling of our home. They mentioned the steps that are involved, paperwork of course, scheduling inspections.  What helped me a lot is that Linda was with me when inspectors were in the house. She explained what they will be doing, she was also there in case they had any questions I could not answer.     Linda was truly a huge help.  I like to say she held my hand through the whole thing, but what she and Michael did was put our mind at ease on any and all aspects of the selling of our house. If we had any questions I would call, text or email her and she was right on it.  She is a very calming person, and you need that when you are making such a huge decision to sell your home.     If you want to sell your home do yourself a favor and call the Colar Team.  It was truly a pleasure working with the Colar Team.  Frank and Sandy Fantino

Professional and diligent is a great way to describe the Colar Team. After years of seeing Michael working in our neighborhood, we decided to list our home with him and Linda. We felt from the beginning that we were in good hands. They handled every detail thoroughly from the open house to the closing. They were with us every step of the journey and paid attention to every detail. With their advice and guidance, we had our home sold in the time frame and price that we had envisioned. We wholeheartedly recommend the Colars for your Real Estate needs.  Steve and Jane Hamblet


We just wanted to say thank you to Michael and Linda for the incredible job they did on the sale of our home. We had to sell our house sooner than expected and were worried about selling late in the fall. We really thought it might sit vacant through the holidays. The Colar Team reassured us and were confident that they would be able to sell our home. From the minute we set up our initial consultation to meet them, through escrow they were right there with us. They advised us of what we should or shouldn’t upgrade on our house to make it the most marketable and within our budget. We spent 2 weeks making our home ready to show. They would come out and check on the house and us regularly during this period. Within two weeks our house was on the market and they hosted our first open house on November 1, 2014.     The pictures showing our house online were amazing and professional. On November 26, 2014, only 25 days after, we closed escrow. Michael and Linda were always available to answer our many questions and concerns. They were always helpful in explaining the process and also supportive as they knew we were nervous. We want to thank them for making a scary time for us a much less stressful time. The whole process went very smoothly and they are extremely knowledgeable in what they do. This really gave us confident in our decision to sell and in knowing that we were doing the whole process correctly. Again, thank you to the Colar Team for an amazing job. We highly recommend them when it comes to real estate.  Craig Evansa and Shala Larsen 


Linda and Michael assisted us with two transactions.  We had to sell our home and purchase a new one.  In the business of selling our home, it was on the market in September 2011 and was in pending status within less than 1 week.  Linda and Michael had their professional stager assess our home and give us advice on how to best present it at the open house. Linda used MLS as well as Facebook and other internet sources to sell our home.  They had one open house the following weekend and that was all it took!   Unfortunately, we had to “short sell” our home but it still sold and closed quickly while Linda worked very closely with our bank.  Linda and Michael did a fantastic job!!!     Our family would like to thank the Colars for their utmost professionalism, yet personable approach to our home selling and buying experience.  They made the painful process of selling a home easy and not too stressful.  They made the buying process fun, quick and efficient.  We would highly recommend them for either selling or buying needs when it comes to your home.  Shawn and Arlene Matz


…Only in the experienced hands of Michael and Linda Colar could our real estate transactions have gone as smoothly as they did.  With their professionalism and well-honed skills, we were guided through two quick closings.  We got our new home at exactly the price we were willing to pay and our old home sold in 7 days for 100% of the asking price.  Both transactions seemed amazingly simple compared to our original home purchase four years prior.  Their high sense of ethics, graciousness, and reassuring demeanor kept us calm through the entire process.  Doug and Heather Hayden
