"To give Heather the appropriate credit she deserves for her unparalleled professionalism and knowledge of the market would not, I hope, distract from her equally appreciated talents of openness, grace and warmth. We bought and sold our Sonoma home under Heather's guidance and the 100% trust we had in her for both transactions was more than justified. The purchase four years ago was quick, easy and financially in our favor. The recent sale, too - not easy to achieve during these challenging Covid times. Quite simply, Heather puts her clients first in every way and that, coupled with her position of immense respect in the industry, is what made her our only choice to steer us through these life-changing events." - Catherine B.
"We met with Heather and she was prepared with a professional presentation. She included comparable properties, and a thorough marketing plan. She guided us through the process from pre inspections to staging and has an awesome photographer. The result was we received multiple offers within 10 days. Heather is a consummate professional, warm and knowledgeable and always put us first. We will utilize her services again and recommend highly to her future clients. In our minds she is the Number One real estate professional in Sonoma County." -Bruce M.
"In one word, Heather is exceptional. We live out of state and had been casually looking in the Sonoma area for over a year. Heather knew what we were looking for and sent us every listing that met our criteria during that time period. She even went to properties and made videos for us to see because we could not tour homes in person. We came to Sonoma this summer for vacation and we met Heather in person to tour several properties. That day, we found our dream property. We knew it was exactly what we wanted, but there were other buyers equally as interested. Heather is smart, extremely organized, quick to respond, patient, a listener, and an excellent negotiator. She has tremendous knowledge about the area and the history of many of the properties. She guided us through the process so easily and smoothly and she was always a step ahead. She counseled us on how to position our offer to be the strongest and she was correct every step of the way. She was calm, focused, and determined to make it happen for us. She has excellent relationships and contacts in the area which are an added benefit. She always had time for us, was available to answer our questions, and went above and beyond. We left Sonoma this summer with a property that our family will cherish for a lifetime. We will always be grateful to Heather for making it happen." - Audrey L.
"My wife and I were looking to purchase a vacation / weekend home in Sonoma County. I found Heather online, and she was instrumental in helping us purchase our home in a tough market for buyers with tight inventory. Heather was active in sending us listings and responding to our questions. She was knowledgeable of the local markets and the properties themselves. Once we were under contract, Heather was very organized in keeping the process moving along and getting us to close in a timely fashion. She was also key in referring a great lender and several vendors to assist with inspections / quotes. I highly recommend Heather and would work with her again." - Gautam G.
"Heather was so great to work with. So helpful and extremely knowledgeable about the area. Her Rolodex of help in the community was outstanding. Thanks Heather for your hard work we love our new home." - Michelle P.
"I was referred to Heather by a family member who used her years ago. I was already looking for a home and didn't really feel like other agents were giving me the help or listening to the desired needs I had in regards to my search for a home. Heather instantly made me feel heard, made my quest a priority, and didn't make me feel pressured at all. She was very knowledgeable about the area and made our desired date to move in happen (10 DAYS!!!). Whether you are new to the market and need some handholding or a seasoned homeowner- I highly recommend Heather." - Nicole S.
