Selling your River Strand Home?

Here are some reasons why you should use :: Heather Goldin :: Your River Strand Realtor.

1. Your River Strand REALTOR

2. Maximizing Your EXPOSURE​

3. Attention to DETAIL

I live in River Strand and do over 80% of our business within the community. I have a solid knowledge of the surrounding area but I am, “Your River Strand Realtor.” I know the difference between homes with golf deeded memberships and those without. I know the answers to specific questions from potential buyers and we offer tours of the community. Which condos allow pets over 50 lbs? Can I have a golf cart? I’ve got the answers. I work full time and I am around the corner so we make sure lights are on for showings and locked up afterwards. My family loves living here and that makes it easy to sell this fantastic community. You are my neighbor and I want to help you.

Living in River Strand is only part of my success.  My marketing approach is not “one size fits all.”  Discussing your goals & defining the selling points of your home or condo allows me to maximize your exposure online and within River Strand.   Online exposure is crucial but I also utilize direct mail, and word of mouth within River Strand.  Staging, professional photography, virtual tours,  printed media, every property from Terrace condos to Estate homes is treated like a million-dollar listing.

From our first meeting to your successful closing I am on top of the details!  Selling is stressful, but I will make it easier for you.  Extensive research will help us position your property to sell quickly and for the most money.  Moving on to negotiation strategies, educating you about Florida contracts, providing referrals for services you may need will save you time and money.  I am actively involved with the loan officer for your buyers and meeting with the appraiser.  From start to finish I am there for you.  

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.

As the #1 Realtor in River Strand in 2020 I represented over 30 sellers and buyers in River Strand alone. 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.

It is my goal for each customer to say, “I don’t know what I would have done without you!”

Client Testimonials

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.

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.

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.
