Vista Sotheby's International Realty


The starting point is to obtain an
accurate valuation. Then engage an
experienced Realtor who will design a
marketing plan specific to your property
to ensure the highest sales price.  

Sotheby's International Realty
is the largest luxury real estate company
in the world and all our listings, in every
price range, benefit from that cachet.

Colin always has a database of qualified buyers.
This includes affluent entertainment
business and all cash international clients
who are always looking for both
investment properties and residences
in Southern California.   

When is the best time to sell?
Circumstances usually dictate when is the
ideal time to sell but in general...

1.) When prices are rising,
especially if you have owned the
property for a while and built equity.

2.) It can also make sense to sell in a flat or
even a down market if you are going to trade
up as the home you are buying may be less
expensive than it would be in a rising market.

Seasonally, most homes are sold locally in
spring and summer, (April through August).
But this is not necessarily the "best" time to sell.
Often it can make sense to put a home on the
market outside of the busiest selling seasons as
the competition will be less - and buyers in the
market at those times are very serious. Timing
will also depend on when you the client feel
"ready", both in terms of having the property
ready and being emotionally ready.    

Call Colin to discuss your needs or start
your search here, which is a direct feed
into the most accurate and current
listing information of homes for sale.
See something you like when searching?
Just tag it as wanting more information
and Colin will get back to you.

 Colin can arrange for you to view any home
listed for sale. Contact me with the address, 
your desired date and time,
and I will set up a showing.

With Colin as your buyer’s agent you
can be assured of solid advice on values,
and strong negotiating skills if you
decide to make an offer.

Many of our clients also like us to set them up
on our “auto e-mail” system with their search
criteria. This sends them new listings on a daily
basis that may be a match as soon as they
hit the market, saves time searching,
and keeps you immediately informed.

When is the best time to buy?
When 3 criteria are met:
1.) When you can afford to.
2.) When your lifestyle requires or wants it.
3.) You intend staying in the same area
and home medium to long term.

What my clients are saying  

***** Highly likely to recommend ***** Colin is the real deal. I've dealt with many agents over the years to buy and sell and I haven't always had the best experiences. He, on the other hand, imparts an immediate sense of calm when he explains how he works and what to expect. He is graceful and eloquent, but most of all, knowledgeable and experienced, and his negotiating skills are second to none. He helped me find a home that was a perfect fit for me and assisted greatly when things got difficult and the deal almost fell apart. Real estate transactions can be very stressful. Quite frankly, I will never use anyone else to buy or sell another home - Colin is that good.

***** Highly likely to recommend ***** First, Colin Campbell helped us to buy a nice new home with views of Manhattan Beach. Second, my current Manhattan Beach house was sold in a quick and efficient manner. Thanks to Colin Campbell and he was always available to answer our questions. Great guy to work with and we highly recommended Colin Campbell.


~ Allee Harmony / Manhattan Beach

***** Highly likely to recommend ***** Colin is a friendly, professional dedicated real estate agent. We had a wonderful experience working with him. We always felt confident with his expert advice and we felt very supported throughout the entire house-buying process. Colin was always very committed to our satisfaction. We felt like a priority. We also appreciate the kind of person he is and would give him our business again and again.


~ Erin Infusino / Palos Verdes Estates

***** Highly likely to recommend ***** We were very happy with Colin's services in the sale of our home. At our first meeting we were impressed with his heartfelt honesty and willingness to assist us without being pushy. We kept Colin in mind and when we were thinking of selling our home and contacted him, he responded immediately with a complete market survey of the houses in our area. He continued to inform us of the state of the market until we decided definitely to list with him. It was with great diligence and expertise that Colin advanced with the sales procedure. He was most helpful and competent in all aspects of the sale. In addition, Colin was always a gentleman. His appearance is clean cut, and he is consistently suitably dressed for business. We highly recommend him.


~ Avner5 / Palos Verdes Estates

***** Highly likely to recommend ***** From the first meeting we were impressed with Colin Campbell. He had the market knowledge, understood our needs, listened to our concerns and the fact for some reason the house was not attracting offers we needed when it was listed with the previous agent. His market analysis surprised us. The price Colin can get for the property was better than we expected. When we showed doubt he expressed confidence that the property will sell at, or slightly higher than the listing price. He delivered on each of the predictions he made, including the time period he will sell the house in. That is why we give him 5 Star. And, also for his professional and courteous services.


~ Natu Patel 1008 / Rancho Palos Verdes

***** Highly likely to recommend ***** Colin was recommended by my Loan Officer. I was impressed by how quickly he contacted me. We met and went over the type of property I was looking for. He found 10 homes. We visited each one the following weekend. The 3rd one we visited was the one I really loved. We put in a bid and I was able to buy the home. I was really impressed by Colin's knowledge and skill in finding a property of my dreams. I really love my home and appreciate how Colin was able to find it within two weeks.


~ Gitnouye / Rancho Palos Verdes

***** Highly likely to recommend ***** Very professional, organized, and focused. Completely understood the features & selling points and how to market the house. Sold the house in 4 days for over asking price. Photos and marketing materials were first rate. Doesn't get any better than this.


~ Jvee72 / Palos Verdes Estates

***** Highly likely to recommend ***** Colin has found us two homes which we purchased with his help, as well as selling our last home. His approach is honest, sincere and extremely professional. He was thorough in his research of what we were looking for and provided detailed information regarding the neighborhoods and current values for us to consider. We won't hesitate to call him when we are looking for another property.
