River Strand Golf & Country Club

More than a Community, it’s a Lifestyle

Hello! I was born and raised in Illinois and graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in Communications and Graphic Design. I’ve lived in IL, IA, WI, GA, and now call Florida home since 2005.

I married my high school sweetheart Robin, and we have 3 children. We live in River Strand Golf & Country Club which is where I conduct over 90% of my business. I work full time, but enjoy yoga, tennis, reading and watching football.

Since 2015 I have consistently remained one of the top Realtors in River Strand. I live and work in River Strand but also specialize in knowing the surrounding area if you are looking to buy in Lakewood Ranch/Sarasota/Bradenton/Parrish.

I’m a customer-focused professional who believes in clear communication and efficient organization, I take pride in insuring that home buyers and sellers have the tools they need to make informed decisions. I offer staging and decorating services to sellers to give their home a current look. I enjoy adding creative flair to the real estate experience and first-class customer service.

It is my goal for each customer to say, “I don’t know what I would have done without you!'” Exceeding expectations, not just meeting them, is how I run my business.

Specializing in River Strand while maintaining a healthy knowledge of the surrounding area have made me the “go-to Realtor” with other agents when they have questions about River Strand. Living in the community gives me access to current information so I can answer a variety of questions that other agents and their buyers may have. I offer tours to interested buyers and their agents accessing areas that are usually restricted to non-residents. If a customer needs assistance in another geographic area I have a select group of Realtors which I can recommend.

I am a licensed Realtor, a member of NAR (National Association of Realtors) and I have earned the prestigious CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designation. 2016 Circle of Excellence Award winner, Rising Star Award 2017 and a Five-Star Agent in 2016-2020. Thanks for taking the time to learn about me. I look forward to learning about your needs and how I can help you.

I would like to thank Heather Goldin of Fine Properties for the fabulous job she has done as my realtor to sell my condo. From our first meeting until the final closing, Heather was available to promptly answer all my questions and walk me through each step in the process. We texted, emailed or spoke on the phone about everything. She is so knowledgeable and in tune with the market. On many occasions, I felt Heather went above and beyond to sell my condo. And through this entire process I felt I have made a friend. You are a Rock Star Realtor Heather. Please know I appreciated everything you did for me to sell my condo.

Heather was outstanding with assisting us in both selling and purchasing of existing properties. Her expertise in the local market is second to none and was extremely helpful in assisting with many of our decisions. Heather was very involved in all aspects of the closing for both properties, she was friendly, considerate, and very professional. I would highly recommend Heather for any or all of your real estate inquiries.

Heather is top notch and we can’t recommend her enough! She sold our home in less than 4 days and kept us in the loop every step of the way. She is super responsive, very knowledgeable, and she stays up to date on the current housing trends. She goes above and beyond for her clients!

Heather’s first priority is understanding the reason and urgency to sell. Based on this information she does the necessary research on comparable homes and presents realistic and competitive pricing. During the entire process she is proactive and persistent with all parties involved and punctual to all showings. This is our second deal with Heather. She is our first phone call when either selling/buying in this area or needing advice.

We were out of state buyers with no knowledge of the area or the market. Heather was fantastic at helping us know the area before we arrived, showed us around, gave us many options to choose from and helped us make a competitive offer. Then, she took the lead on all the closing details with recommendations for inspectors, title companies, insurance providers and more. Lastly, the house was empty for some time before we moved, and she kept an eye on the property till we arrived. We could not have had a better partner to help us through this journey

Heather was recommended to my wife and I through another Real Estate Agent based on Heather’s excellent reputation and knowledge of the area where we were looking to relocate. The community was in high demand and had no listed homes available. After our first contact with Heather, we knew we had the right Agent. Heather knew the community and what homeowners may be interested in selling their properties. Within a few days Heather identified three options that met our criteria. Heather managed the process from there flawlessly. We flew in to see a property we selected on a Saturday, and everything was scheduled so we could visit and fly out the same day. The house was exactly as described and easily met our expectations. From there we made an offer based on Heather’s recommendation that was accepted without hesitation. From there Heather provided all the contacts to navigate the rest of the process. From home inspection and surveys to attorneys, closing agents and insurance brokers. Without Heather’s expertise, the process would have been significantly more challenging. We are completely delighted with our experience with Heather and give her our highest recommendation.

Who would think selling your house could be fun? Heather and Grayson were indeed fun, quick to respond to all questions, staged the house beautifully, dealt with all the details, professional and most importantly sold the house in a week for asking price. Highly recommend!

Living in Canada, and with pandemic travel restrictions, we recently decided to sell our vacation home in River Strand. Heather Goldin and her team expedited the whole process for us, and the property sold in less than 2 months! Heather was fantastic in professionally and efficiently handling every detail, right down to arranging storage of our personal items. She provided excellent advice on pricing, and beautifully staged the home to enable a quick sale. We were kept well informed by Heather, as she guided us painlessly through the whole process! We are convinced that her knowledge and experience in River Strand real estate was a huge advantage, compared to other realtors. In our experience, Heathers' efficiency and attention to detail are unmatched! We strongly recommend Heather to any potential River Strand buyers or sellers!!

Spectacular service from a truly motivated and highly professional agent. Heather achieved the sale price we wanted in the timeframe that we needed. All aspects of the sale were handled by Heather and her team (including furniture removal). A completely stress-free experience for my wife and me. Moreover, she managed all of this whilst we were locked down in England. Top marks to this lady.

Heather was fantastic from start to finish with listing our home. She is knowledgeable, professional, prompt with answers/feedback and most of all she truly cares. Go with Heather for selling your home. You won’t be disappointed!

We recently sold our property in RS and, as it turned out, were fortunate we chose Heather as the listing agent. Over the years we have been involved in the purchase and sale of many properties therefore have met numerous agents.
Never have we met a more professional, efficient and capable individual! She is unbelievable....from a totally positive personality, to an understanding of the market topped off with a fierce determination the complete the transaction! If you are considering buying or selling a property in RS you must speak to her...you will be happy you did.

Heather Goldin is a fantastic realtor! I found myself needed to downsize unexpectedly. I needed a realtor who understood the River Strand market. I interviewed other realtors who demonstraed they didn't know River Strand. Heather showed herself to be very knowledgeable about the area. She also wasn’t out “for a quick sale at a low-ball price”. Once into the process, she offered great advice on staging and offered to lend some props. Once I was under contract, she managed all the various parties (title company, HOA estoppel process, buyer’s realtor, etc.) to ensure a smooth closing. That became even more important as COVID 19 became a reality in our area. I highly recommend Heather – your River Strand specialist!

When my wife and I wanted to sell our home we enlisted Heather. She was extremely helpful and professional. She listed our home and it was virtually painless. We would recommend Heather and her team to any of our friends and neighbors to use her firm. Thank you, Heather, for all of your help!

Our sale was met with some unusual circumstances and Heather had the resolutions, answers and resources to make it happen. Her knowledge and ability to work under pressure and adversity was impressive. We were very pleased with the sale and experience with Heather at the helm.

After buying and selling properties for over 40 years, using the services of many Realtors, we have never met anyone that compares to Heather Goldin. From her attention to detail for both buyer and seller, to her professionalism, ethics and always positive “can do attitude”, Heather Goldin is the epitome of the Total Package Realtor! I would, without hesitation or reservation, recommend Heather Goldin to anyone seeking the very best of the best.

Heather was a great real estate agent, very professional and optimistic. She listed and sold our home, finding us a cash buyer with a quick and seamless closing. We recommend her enthusiastically! Thanks Heather!

You might find this unusual, but as a fellow Realtor, I was on the other side of a recent transaction with Heather. She really is a great agent, paying attention to details and always in communication. While we all like to think we work for great Brokers, it really comes down to the quality of the agent. Heather is among the best.
