About Colleen Malone

I never anticipated becoming a real estate agent. My highest aspirations were to be an “intrepid girl sleuth” (a la Nancy Drew) or an “innovative advertising executive” (a female version of Don Draper?). But as it turns out, as a Realtor I get to be both investigative and creative on a daily basis.  I love what I do–it’s adventurous, challenging, satisfying, and a lot of fun!
