 Colleen loves Real Es-
tate it’s more than a career, it’s a
passion she has enjoyed for 16
 She likes to help those who
need her expertise in contract law
and real estate. Colleen’s ser-
vice is for everyday people who
are selling the home they’ve lived
in for a lifetime, people who are
new to Canada, or someone who
is just starting out on their home
ownership journey. Selling or buy-
ing a home might seem straight
forward, but it is lled with many
pitfalls if the contracts are short
on details and don’t account for
the what ifs that happen in life.
 She went to school to study
law where she earned a parale-
gal diploma and then worked for
a large real estate developer. Ex-
perience on the developer side of
Real Estate gave her an insight
into strata plans and details like
airspace, commercial entitle
ments, covenants, easements,
and statutory right of ways. She
understands how all these legal
rights will affect the sale of the
home or the lifestyle of the pur-
chaser. She knows what to look
for to ensure her clients are pro-
 Real Estate is complicated
and too often a buyer doesn’t
know what questions to ask to en-
sure they will not be on the hook
for an unforeseen expense or
living in a strata that restricts their
lifestyle. Colleen knows what to
look for, how to write a good con-
tract, and has advanced training
in real estate law to help her pro-
tect her client’s interests.
 There is more to selling a
home than exchanging cash for
keys. The process can be frus-
trating and if one is not careful,
it could cost you more than you

Colleen has access to data
and the experience to price your
home according to the market.
By pricing the home right,
it will attract buyers right away.
When a home is priced too high, it
will sit in the market and lose the
interest of potential buyers be-
cause it will not show well against
other listings in the same price
range, which the buyers agent
will show with comparative past
If it is priced too low, without
the right marketing strategy, the
seller may not get a fair offer and
walk away with less than they
should have.
When the market is hot, a
well-priced home can result in
a bidding war because the best
chance for the highest offer is
to get a higher number of buy-
ers interested in the listing at the
same time. Even in a hot market,
homes which are overpriced will
sit unsold and interest will wane,
no matter how nice the property.
With the data available to
her, and her experience in the
market, Colleen is able to help a
seller price their home to attract
interested buyers.
How a home is shown to the
marketplace matters. Colleen
uses the latest tools to create a
full marketing package to show-
case the home’s best features
and tell a complete story.
Starting with photos, vid-
eos, 3D Matterport tours, and
oorplans she is able to help get
potential buyers excited about
seeing the home. When buyers

How a buyer feels when
walking through your home mat-

comes in. Colleen knows how to

you need extra help, who to bring

Do you know how much pa-
perwork is involved in a real es-
tate transaction? Colleen does
and with her legal training, she
understands the level of detail
required to get it right. Realtors
have a duciary responsibility to
their clients to protect them and
ensure their interests always
come rst.
This responsibility comes
easy to Colleen, who naturally
cares about other people and is
driven to be of service. One of her
rst jobs in Real Estate was as
a licensed assistant to a team of
successful Realtors who dotted

How are your negotiating
skills? Do you live for the deal?
Can you negotiate like a pro?
Colleen has been negotiating real
estate deals for 16 years. She
knows what a good offer is and
advises her clients on what to of-
fer, what to ask for, and then ne-
gotiates on their behalf to get the
best deal possible. Throughout
her career, she has undergone
training and learned from those in
the industry about negotiation and
getting the best deal for a client.
Colleen Shorter does a lot
more than show homes or put up
a sign. She analyzes the market,
the properties, and the paperwork
to ensure her client’s interests are
taken care of. She makes sure
her sellers properties are show-
cased to the market properly to
bring interested buyers in. She
uses her skills and talents to ma-
neuver through a deal and un-
derstand all the details that could
affect the outcome of the sale.

I love spending time in Ambleside.
It is the best place to live in the
lower mainland because of the ocean,
beach, mountains, and shopping

Ambleside Life
When Colleen Shorter
moved to the North Shore, she
felt like she was nally home. It
is where she belongs and she
never wants to leave. Whenever
she drives north over the Lions-
gate bridge, she gets a warm
feeling and a huge smile on her
face because she is living in the
best place in the world. She en-
joys living the healthy lifestyle
the North Shore offers.
The community has every-
thing she needs. It has the Park
Royal shopping centre, small
business boutique shopping,
yoga classes, doctors, pharma-
cies, the park, the beach, and
the mountains. You can swim,
bike, walk, ski, snowshoe, and
never have to drive. Whether
she visits the Capilano suspen-
sion bridge, the dam, Grouse
Mountain, the river, and trails,
she is happy to be in the natural
environment of her community.
