"Colin is an exceptional representative of someone looking for a new lease. I am a 40+ professional with one year in Boston. I had very specific requirements but was wavering on location. Colin met me for coffee and really got to know me. He showed me neighborhoods I hadn’t considered and continually focused my priorities and search. Colin’s masterful skills found me a beautiful new leased condo within my price range with every box checked on my priority list. Colin stopped by my office to pick up required details and made the entire process seamless. For anyone questioning the need for a broker - I say it’s absolutely worth it. Give Colin a call. " - Kellie G.

"Most professional broker I've ever dealt with, hands down. Extremely responsive at all hours of the day and weekend, courteous enough to drive us to a few different places, was very thorough, negotiated on our behalf and took initiative to counter offer, professional enough that he reads the lease agreements and legal docs as a second filter before you sign anything, just very impressive in what he does. Also unlike most brokers, he's committed beginning to end, even after the checks have been written, he continues to provide help and feedback as we get ready to move into the apartment. I cannot recommend him any stronger - hands down BEST broker in Boston and best broker I've dealt with in any city. " -Aaron B.

"Colin was extremely helpful during our rental search. He set up showings and was always quick to respond to any questions we had. It removed much of the stress normally associated with searching for rentals. " - Eric S.

About Colin

You might say that Colin was destined for a career in real estate. His mother works in the field, and his father owned a construction company that built custom homes. Visiting job sites and learning about all the building phases from start to finish fascinated Colin, setting him on a path that eventually led to Compass. 

After graduating from Suffolk University with a bachelor's degree in finance (minor in real estate), Colin started his professional career at BNY Mellon. He then moved on to Berkeley Point Capital, which specializes in multifamily capital solutions. After a few years, though, he was eager to transition to real estate. He became a real estate agent in 2015, gradually building a network of investors, landlords and tenants through personal and professional relationships he had forged over the years.

In 2020 Colin teamed with William Natoli, a friend since their first year of college and a colleague at their previous agency, to found Bayley & Natoli and join the Compass family. The pair welcomed the chance to be part of a firm that is known for strongly supporting its agents' growth and maintaining an upbeat, collegial atmosphere. 

Colin serves developers, investors, landlords and everyone from first-time homebuyers to high-net-worth owners of multiple homes throughout Greater Boston. Honesty, reliability and integrity are among his guiding principles, as is letting clients know they are his top priority from Day One. He always puts in the time to understand clients' desires and form enduring relationships, a commitment that has earned him a loyal, enthusiastic clientele. 

Colin has lived in Boston since 2006 and still has family where he grew up on the North Shore. He is an avid runner and cyclist and also enjoys traveling and snowboarding.
