Client Testimonials

Heather (and Robin!) did an outstanding job in getting our home on the market and SOLD. We selected Heather to list our home due to her successful track record in the area as well as her genuine passion for what she does. She truly loves being a realtor and sincerely wants to do her absolute best for you. From the terrific listing description of our home, providing excellent suggestions on how best to ready our home for sale, arranging professional photos, holding open houses, networking with other agents, and building an impressive/effective marketing campaign (flyers, online, email, etc) -Heather made it happen for us! The highest compliment we can offer is if asked if we would use Heather to sell another home for us the answer would be a resounding "YES"! If you are looking to sell your home- do yourself a huge favor and call Heather before making that listing agent decision!

Heather is professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and very responsive. Being brand new to Bradenton, she made us feel welcomed and was really helpful with local contacts above and beyond her normal responsibilities. Our transaction was very easy, thanks to her.

Heather was the consummate professional throughout the entire process. We wanted someone who had great passion for the business and would represent our home as proudly as we felt about it. There were some nuances in the process but we were able to work through them with Heather and complete the sale earlier than initially anticipated. Thank you, Heather, for your good work ethic, knowledge of Florida real estate and working with us as a trusted representative.

My wife and I needed a real estate representative for both selling and buying houses in River Strand. What we found in Heather Goldin was the perfect blend of professionalism and thoughtfulness. We knew after a short conversation with Heather that she thoroughly understood our specific needs. On the selling end, she demonstrated that understanding by beautifully and aggressively marketing the house we were selling. On the buying end, she used patience and business savvy while representing us in a tough negotiation. And during the entire process of both transactions, Heather continuously kept us in the loop with every small detail and development. We couldn't be more pleased with Heather's performance and the end result, our new home.

Simply put, Heather is amazing. She took extra time with us as first-time buyers to explain the process. She was a strong advocate with us throughout the experience. Heather fought hard for us on the deal elements that mattered. She was highly communicative and always went the extra mile. I plan to use Heather again, and I would highly recommend her to my family and friends.

Heather was the perfect choice for us. She guided us and helped us to both purchase and sell a home. Her positive attitude helped us through the ups and downs of listings, showings, cancellations and problems. She is detail oriented and has great follow-up and follow thru on questions and concerns along the process. She especially worked hard on our listing to make sure the photos were of the highest quality to bring in many potential buyers. Heather knows the local market extremely well which also was a huge plus. We would highly recommend her for the purchase or sale of property in the area.

Wow! Where to begin? Heather was incredible from the moment we met her. She is such a warm, friendly person. Right from the beginning she understood what we wanted. Her tireless search and willingness to take us to see whatever property we wanted was truly amazing! Once we found the property, her willingness to help did not end there. As Canadians and first time "U.S." home buyers we are forever grateful for all Heather's assistance with everything from home inspection to cable installation. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone looking for a Realtor with heart!!!

Heather was excellent from start to finish. She started with a detailed presentation to convince us that she would do a great job as our "River Strand Realtor" - and she did. Heather communicated with us every step of the way. Heather was there for photographs, showings, open houses, appraisals, home inspections and the closing. Heather is enthusiastic, hardworking, knowledgeable and professional. She sold our house in 10 days very close to list price. I would highly recommend Heather for anyone looking to sell their house.

My condo at River Strand was sold recently by Heather Goldin. She is so professional and easy to work with, especially since I live overseas. She managed the whole transaction without a hitch and secured a good sale for me. I strongly recommend anyone who wishes to sell their property to use Heather. She will not disappoint you. Heather, thank you for everything!

My husband and I initially called Heather to have her show us a condo in which she was the listing agent. Heather agreed to show us that particular home as well as similar properties in the neighborhood. We did not find anything initially that we liked, but were pleased to receive information on other properties that Heather thought might be of interest to us. There was never any pressure to buy and we felt Heather was truly interested in finding the perfect home for us. Bottom line: Heather Goldin is very professional and has a great sense of humor which makes buying a property less stressful.
