Colleen is the “Sourcing Queen” of all things design for Gibson and Heatherington Luxury Properties. She is a daughter of serial DIYers who were renovating homes and enlisting their children to help, before DIY was even a verb. They taught her to be hands on, creative and not to be afraid to try something new; even if they failed. They taught her to work through all projects with pride and to appreciate the final results with humility. Always loving home design, it was the renovation of her first home along the Main Line of Philly back in 2011 that allowed her to really show my abilities.
Colleen says, “I feel that luck is two parts: Preparedness meets Opportunity and I was ready to express my creative side again after moving to Dublin, Ohio in 2019. I serendipitously met Ryan and Will when they wanted to elevate the design within their ever-expanding entrepreneurial venture into luxury rental properties and real estate ownership.”
Colleen hopes to continue to grow with G&H Luxury Properties and make our rental client’s expectations of comfort and relaxation within contemporary design, easy to enjoy during their visit to Ohio and beyond.
