When you work with a Halton Pardee agent, you get the whole team. They were professional and diligent about every aspect of the transaction. They made buying a…house an easy thing. And even after the transaction had closed, I had several questions, which they answered without delay.

My wife and I decided to purchase a home during the months that we were planning our wedding, which was a crazy thing to do, but we had…such a wonderful experience with Colette and Halton Pardee. Colette clearly knows the market like no other and once we began working together she quickly became a friend. LA is a tough market and we're so thankful to have our dream home in our dream neighborhood, which was something we weren't sure was even possible. Would recommend Colette and Halton Pardee to anyone that's looking for a home in the LA area!!

Colette and Rachael were amazing and made our home buying experience the best we have had. We have bought six homes in six different States, but we have…never met as proficient, knowledgeable, and astute agents as we met in Colette Stevens and Halton Pardee. Colette brought her team together to guide us into winning a wonderful home. I feel so blessed that we walked in off the street to the Halton Pardee + Partners office on Ocean Park and were greeted by Colette. She will never know how much her working with us made this move so wonderful. Thanks Colette, Rachael and the whole team at Halton Pardee + Partners. You are true, caring professionals.

Colette goes above and beyond for her clients.

Not only is she friendly, quick to get back to you, knowledge and well-connected to the local scene in…
case you need any additional home services, Colette does it all with an air of professionalism that sets her apart from the competition by a long shot.

We cannot recommend her enough if you're looking for an agent.

I met Colette online through a property search engine. I selected a property on one of the major home search sites and within 1 minute, Colette called…me. I was so surprised. She was nice and calm and she did exactly what she said she would do and I could tell she listened.

The very next day she sent her assistant, who happens to be her sister Rachel, to take me to about 6 properties. Rachel walked me through a new town in Marina Del Rey and even introduced me to people who would soon become my neighbors. Colette joined us later that day and the three of us actually found a home that day. We had fun and I was educated greatly about the process at the same time.

I couldn't believe they were so familiar with all of the properties that were of interest to me. They really knew their way around from the Marina all the way to West LA, pointing out the major differences. I felt like Colette was The Mayor of each town. She shared history and future plans for every area on my list. She even returned to multiple properties at different hours of the day so I could see how the sun hits each property.

I chose a property in need of renovations. Colette helped me every step of the way, connecting me with multiple lenders, contractors, landscapers, etc... Colette invited me and my partner to events in my neighborhood to help us meet people and become familiar.

Months after I moved in, we hear from Colette inviting us to events as well as phone calls with updates about my community.

We moved from a small community, where I grew up, near Rancho Palos Verdes. I never expected to be treated with such respectful, professional and attentive service when I began my search in Los Angeles. She has a small-town authenticity in a big town like Los Angeles.

I am happy to write this review and hope that people read this knowing they really have someone on their side if they use Colette.

Additionally, my home had multiple offers with which I had to compete. I would have backed out if not for her careful explanation of a strategy that worked. The other agent really liked her and I could tell he wanted to work with her - I think that helped us.

My partner and I are forever grateful.

Colette Stevens was fantastic to work with. She was very helpful in navigating the buying process and helped us manage it with us in San Francisco and the…property in LA. She was very knowledgeable on the area and responsive to texts / calls. She helped us decide where to push on the ask and when our offer was accepted did everything to make sure all of the third parties came out on time and on schedule. Buying a home is a very stressful process but Colette and team made it so much easier. After we closed she stayed incredible responsive and helped us resolve a few left over issues with the seller.

Colette Stevens from Halton Pardee + Partners helped us to buy our first house in Mar Vista. I highly recommend Colette and the whole Halton Pardee team for…several reasons.

Colette is very knowledgeable. In the current competitive market, it is very important to have a clever strategy to make a winning offer.

Colette is professional and honest and always puts work ethics first. She never pushed us to buy a house that we did not like, instead, by highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of a house helped us to better make a final decision to whether put an offer.

Colette has a lot of connections. The people she knows through the Halton Pardee network helped us significantly to facilitate the whole purchase process, from the lending process to different kinds of inspections we did. Buying the first house is a stressful process, and it is important to deal with people who are both responsive and trustworthy.

Last but not least, Colette is a really cool and easy to talk person. She was always there for us, no matter how late we've called her.
Although we've been living in our new home for 6 weeks now after a done deal, she is still around helping us with recommendations and other things.

My wife and I are really grateful for all the help and advice Colette provides to us, and we appreciate her patience and expertise.

I met Colette through a property enquiry to her firm and found her to be very knowledgeable and pleasant. I live overseas and had very little time…to view properties. She was very accommodating of my tight schedule and efficient in securing appointment on last minute notice. After I made an unsuccessful offer on a property last summer, she and I stayed in touch and the following summer she helped me find a place that suits my investment and other objectives. She coordinated a quick closing including inspections and repairs in my absence and helped everything go smoothly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Colette to anyone looking for a residential property in the Santa Monica/Mar Vista/Venice/Marina Del Rey area!

Overall great experience with Colette. She helped us extensively throughout the process despite the fact that we were very indecisive at first about which locations we were…interested in. She provided us with a ton of research about various properties and made herself always available for showings.

Later in the process Colette assisted us greatly with negotiations and finding the right mortgage company. After we closed she helped us find a maid and interior designer and gave us an amazing gift once we settled in. Would highly recommend her for anyone looking for an incredible agent.

Colette is such a joy to work with: super hard-working, kind, smart, efficient, calm, and a true expert on the local Venice and surrounding areas. She was…incredibly patient and thorough throughout my home search, and always kept my interests and priorities in mind when recommending listings, or helping me narrow down possibilities, and I always felt first to know when something new came on the market (she's always on top of the latest and greatest!) Colette makes herself readily available at all times, and is super quick and efficient at providing information, sharing updates in real time, and will go the extra mile to see a deal through to completion. Yet, she is not overly pushy, and I never felt pressured- she truly has her clients best interest in mind. (She will be patient if you're a first time home buyer just starting your search; but she can also turn on the heat to meet the needs of any major investor who is ready to move on multiple deals!) Overall, Colette is fair, honest, friendly and a true pro when it comes to the LA real estate market. Plus, she is SO fun to work with!! I recommend her to anyone looking for an agent in LA.

My husband and I worked with Colette Stevens to purchase our beach condo in Marina del Rey. We really can't say enough good things about her. She is…knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with Colette made it as painless as possible, we would highly recommend her.

We worked with Colette Stevens from Halton Pardee and she was amazing. We originally made an offer on a house and wanted to submit it soon after…visiting the open house. We called Colette at 6pm on a Saturday and she wrote the offer up for us within 1 hour! She maintained that level of responsiveness throughout our buying process and was always available to answer our questions. She always had our backs as the sellers were trying to rush us through the process, even though the delays were down to their fault not ours! She went well above and beyond and her clients needs always come first. I will definitely use her again in the future

I highly recommend Colette Stevens. She is sharp, quick, knowledgeable and always a pleasure to speak to. Above all, she is the hardest working agent I've known and…when I ask Colette to do something, I know I will be expecting an excellent job done.

Just closed my 2nd purchase with Colette and hopefully more!

I lucked upon Colette Stevens at an open house and was fortunate enough to have her become my realtor. Colette was friendly, knowledgeable, hard-working and extremely helpful.… I had absolute trust in Colette and she didn't let me down. It was my first time buying a home (condo) and I needed all the help I could get. I'm extremely grateful to Colette and the entire Halton Pardee team, for their help. I would recommend Colette to anyone I know who is looking to buy anywhere in the area.
