Hello! Welcome to my website! My name is Collette Matthews and I have enjoyed my role as a Real Estate Agent with Crites Realty since 2001. I have helped over 300 families with their Real Estate Needs. I always say “When I can help people make a difference in their lives, I am happy and I am doing what I love to do!” My goal is to make every transaction as easy on the customer as possible. Having lived in Junction City, Kansas most of my life, I consider myself fortunate to come from such a friendly community. Once you move to Junction City, you will know why I am proud to call this MY HOME TOWN!!!
Having a background in education, I possess the same skills it takes to be a great teacher in my Real Estate Practice, educating my Buyers and Sellers on the Home Buying/Selling process so that there are no surprises along the way. I am knowledgeable, helpful, and accommodating. I feel that good communication is imperative and I strive to keep Buyers and Sellers informed throughout the transaction. I answer phone calls, emails and text messages promptly. So if you are looking for a trustworthy, resourceful, hardworking, and caring agent, please give me a call!
“Collette is the cream of the crop, a wonderful real estate agent!!! She helped us via email before we even stepped foot into Kansas and then she found “our” home within four days!! She found it, really – it had not even hit the MLS listings yet. She called us late afternoon, we walked thought the house by early evening and we had a signed contract with the owners before midnight!! We were afforded the opportunity to see her as a wife and mother also, what a wonderful, well-rounded woman she is! We would not hesitate to use her again, or honestly, anyone she recommended!”

“Dealing with Collette on our house purchase while we live in a different state was a great experience. She helped us through the process from start to finish and seemed to genuinely care about getting exactly what we wanted. She was always there, even when I had a question about what to do next. She was always available when I needed her, and always upbeat and positive.”
– Bought a home in 2012
“Collette was beyond outstanding with her service regarding listing and selling our property. Her cheerful and “can do” attitude won us over immediately and we knew she was the right realtor for us. Collette’s follow-up with all potential leads were amazing and we thank her for her encouraging words when our home did not sell as quickly as we had hoped. We find her to be one of the best realtors in the state of Kansas! Best of luck to you, Collette.”

“Collette was extremely helpful and competent in helping us buy and sell our house in Junction City. She has the interest of her clients at heart and she maintains very good professional and personal relationships with them. We highly recommend her.”
– Sold a Single Family home in 2008 in Junction City, KS
“I recently sold the home my parents built in the mid sixties. This was also the house in which I grew up. There was a lot of emotional attachment to this home. From the day I went in to discuss putting the house on the market to the day of closing, Collette was understanding and sensitive to the situation while at the same time maintaining professionalism. She conducted several open houses and made suggestions as to staging to make the house a little more inviting since it was devoid of furniture and other decor. Collette kept me informed and returned calls made to her in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to recommend this agent to anyone considering buying or selling a home.”
