Coleen Brennan: Engel & Völkers Private Office Group In the Fall of 1986, after recently moving to Newport Beach from Park City, Utah, Coleen Brennan made a career change that would alter her life in ways she never imagined. After more than a decade of financial success running her own manufacturer's rep firm in the snow sports industry--earning a pilot's license and flying her own plane to service her accounts in the Rocky Mountain states--she traversed into the highly competitive real estate arena. Fast-forward nearly 30 years and today Coleen has a list of clients and property transactions that consistently rank her among the top agents in the country. “Clearly, this is an example of 'over-night' success'!" she says, tongue-in- cheeck. Though the time seems to have passed quickly, Coleen recounts with uncanny clarity the numerous market cycles she has seen over three decades. “One of the benefits of being completely immersed in one's work is acquiring sensitivity to its pulse. This level of awareness can be a significant advantage for both my clients and company.” Having this depth of market knowledge has proven to be a competitive edge for Coleen. Combined with her old- school work ethic and drive to succeed she has garnered numerous sales awards and a top 1% national ranking among her peers in the luxury properties category. “As a competitive athlete I learned in order to be good you had to put the work in. And In order to put the work in you have to love what you do.” Though she does sneak away occasionally to pursue her fly-fishing passion, Coleen loves her work logging 10 hour days, seven days a week, and always being available to take care of her clients. “Real estate is about location. Being a real estate agent is about service. Clients are my priority.” Coleen's instinctive desire to help people matured after her post-graduate years while participating in a research study for early identification of Autistic children. “Being able to help these kids was a life-changing event.” Recently inducted into Engel & Völkers prestigious Private Office Group, Coleen is now uniquely positioned within EVUSA to network closely with the company's top agents, nationally and across the globe. As the real estate markets--particularly here in the Newport Beach area--continue to see a globalization of clients this level of communication becomes vital to both buyers and sellers of luxury property. Coleen's office in Corona del Mar is a continent away from her modest roots outside of Boston. But it's connected to the world. She invites you to stop by or give her a call to discuss how she and Engel & Volkers' global network can make your next real estate transaction the best move you've ever made. With nearly 700 offices around the globe, Engel & Völkers is one of the world's leading service companies specializing in the sale and rental of premium residential property, commercial real estate, yachts and aircraft.
