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. In 2013 we moved to River Strand Golf & Country Club which is where I conduct over 80% of my business. I work full time, but enjoy yoga, tennis, reading and watching football.
The proof is in the numbers: 2018 #1 Realtor for $ Volume in River Strand, #1 Realtor for Listings Sold in River Strand and #1 Realtor for # of Buyers in River Strand.
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.

Meet Karen Sergison
I was born and raised in Chatham, New Jersey. I lived in Bethany Beach, Delaware for the last 15 years where I have had a successful real estate business for the last 12 years with an average of $10M a year in sales. My real estate business was focused in a golf course community and the surrounding resort area working with many 2nd home buyers and retirees. Prior to a career in real estate, I had a career in Information Systems at AT&T for 13 years and as Director of Technology for a School District.
My husband and I purchased a condo on Grand Estuary in November 2017. We made may upgrades to the home and planned to be snowbirds. However, after spending time here for the months of April and August, we decided to make River Strand our full-time home. We purchased a Coach Home in August 2019 which we are renovating and sold the condo. We look forward to spending many years enjoying all River Strand has to offer.
I am an avid golfer. In Delaware I was a member at Bear Trap Dunes Golf Club where I served as advisory board member and ten time women’s club champion. I co-chaired for the Women’s Golf Association Dunes Pink Classic for seven years which has raised over $300,000 for the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition. I also served as an officer on the Delaware Women’s Golf Association. I look forward to continuing to be an active member of the River Strand golf community.
I look forward to working with Heather and our clients in River Strand whether buying or selling.
I have a MBA in Management from Fairleigh Dickinson University and BS in Business/Computer Science from Albright College.
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) and SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist) designations. 2016 Circle of Excellence Award winner, Rising Star Award 2017 and a Five-Star Agent in 2016, 2017 and 2018. Thanks for taking the time to learn about me. I look forward to learning about your needs and how I can help you.
What my clients said
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!!!
Thank you, Heather, for a great experience buying a home. The process went smoothly and your help was invaluable. We will absolutely refer you to our friends and family looking for a home in the Bradenton/Sarasota area.
5 Star rating for Heather. She is an outstanding Realtor. We couldn't have found our dream winter home without her. She goes the extra mile. We fully recommend her.
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.
Heather Goldin is above EXCELLENT in every way - as a person, highly professional, knowledgeable, always nice, patient with 'demanding high energy lady like myself. She delivered THE BEST Real Estate SERVICE. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone and did give her cards to some River Strand residents. I will never forget how smoothly my transaction was with Heather Goldin. Merci beaucoup!
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.
