Don’t Take Our Word For It! Hear From Heather’s Past Clients ​​​​​​​


“Given the grueling negotiations in almost every other aspect of our divorce, I was dreading the process of selling our home, but thank goodness for Heather! She made it so smooth and easy, keeping us informed the whole way and handling it like a professional business transaction. I’ll admit that I was skeptical at first to use a realtor to represent both my soon-to-be-ex husband and me, but it ended up being the best decision we made because Heather saved us so much time and helped us secure the maximum value on our home. At no time did either of us feel slighted. It was incredibly helpful to have an objective third party who could provide us with well-researched and expert guidance without feeling as though there was an ulterior motive to have one side “win.” Heather was so kind, thoughtful and compassionate throughout the process, which made a really difficult time in my life, much more manageable.”



“A few years ago, I reached out to Heather to help me sell my home. My wife and I were going through a divorce, and we needed to sell quickly. She quickly assessed our situation and began providing solid advice while connecting us with stagers, moving companies, and lenders. My wife had already started working with some of these companies on her own but ended up going with Heather’s recommendations so that everything could be more easily coordinated. By putting our full trust in Heather’s hands to treat the situation fairly and objectively, we sold our house in record time. I never expected our divorce realtor to become a friend, but it’s hard not to with Heather. We’ve stayed in touch over the years and I’ve recently re-hired her to help me and my new wife begin our new home build as we write the next chapter in our lives.”



“You can’t go wrong with Heather! She was amazingly compassionate, knowledgeable, and efficient. My ex-husband was less than compromising, to say the least, but somehow Heather worked some magic and was able to get him to work with us. My divorce nearly broke me emotionally, but Heather was there every step of the way to keep me focused on the goal. She was the bright spot during a very dark time. I can’t thank her enough. She is a top-notch professional.”

“Even if you’re fully ready for a divorce, it still sucks. But, working with Heather takes the pain out of the process. Reach out to her. Just do it. She knows her stuff. You won’t be sorry.”
