Jim Broderick

Heather D stepped in as our selling agent after we went months with no luck trying to sell our home and we live several hundred miles away. She immediately went above and beyond all expectations and had us up and running fresh out of the gates. Within days we had additional showings, lots of activity and interest in our home. She guided us through some tough predicaments being there for us as we live in MA. Her knowledge and expertise are second to none and without her we would still be looking for a buyer. I cannot say enough kind words about the level of professionalism, fairness and compassion that Heather D brings to the table. I would strongly recommend her for any of your real estate needs. Thanks again Heather D!!!

My experience with Heather was nothing short of amazing. In fact, I might argue that I have never met anyone better at their job than Heather. She was with us literally every step of the way as we were living in Virginia and building a new home in North Carolina. Heather identified issues that I would have never noticed, always followed-up with the builder, and literally spent hundreds of hours at our house making sure the work was done properly. When it was time for our closing (we were forced to do it in our car because of COVID) and there was Heather sitting outside of her car (in the rain) ensuring that all of the documents we were signing were in order. So yes, I would highly recommend Heather for your home buying or selling needs.

For two working professionals, with four kids, trying to sell and buy a house (during a pandemic!) responsiveness and a true partner on this journey were key. Heather was the perfect person for us! She worked diligently, responding to texts, phone calls and most importantly being patient and kind as she helped educate us through the process. We also loved her marketing, using a mix of social media, real estate sites and her network. We appreciated Heather’s approach as she walked our house with us prior to pictures to identify little tweaks room by room without feeling we had to stage a house. I felt like I could still live in my house while also making it appealing to buyers. Heather’s dedication did not stop once we had an offer. She was there for us using her knowledge and contacts through inspection and the final paperwork. She has an incredible supporting network of contractors and lawyers that she works with who not only do great work but also made us feel like we were important and a priority. We enjoyed working with Heather and would highly recommend her for any real estate transaction!

Tania Bergquist

My husband and I were so fortunate to have heard about Heather through another recommendation when we started looking for our first home. Heather patiently worked with us, gave us a ton of helpful information regarding the whole process and mostly, she made a point of helping us find exactly what we were looking for. Heather always had our best interest at heart, and she went out of her way to make the purchase of our home as simple as possible. I recommend Heather everyone! Not only is she a wonderful realtor, but we consider her a forever family friend. Thank you again for all your hard work Heather!

Rob Hultkrantz & Nora Esmat

 Heather was absolutely amazing during the search for our new home. She helped us navigate a hectic market, was always quick to answer questions, and helped us find the right house in the right location. We will definitely be going back to her for any other real estate searches

Edd & Lauren Lovette

If you are considering selling your home, we highly recommend Heather Donovan.  She lives in the neighborhood and is very familiar with the local market.  Heather was able to help us buy a dream property and was very patient with us as it took over six months to find.  She also knocked it out of the park with selling our Sunset Oaks home.  We had 33 showings the first weekend and had a contract for full price within three days.  Her guidance through the prep and the marketing was essential

—Edd & Lauren Lovette

Rodney & Laurel Durban

The difference between selling a house and making a house available for sale is in the marketing of the home and neighborhood.  Heather understands this better than most.  We originally listed our house with another agent in early July 2019.  After 65+ days on the market, we received a single low offer.  Heather took over the listing on a Friday in October 2019 and by the following Monday, we had two offers above the asking price - an asking price that was higher than the previous listing.  Heather took the time to consider the unique characteristics of our home and the neighborhood to understand likely buyers and promoted the home in places where those buyers were most likely to see it.  Oh, and she made the entire process easy for us. We would highly recommend her!

Hector & Crystal Agosto

Great experience from start to finish with Heather! She helped with both our selling and purchasing transactions, which both closed on the same day! She kept us informed throughout the entire process and payed close attention to our needs during this stressful/emotional process.  She is very knowledgeable and professional but yet personable at the same time.  I'd definitely use her in the future and would recommend her to family and friends.

Heather & Brian McGowan

Heather was an excellent and made the transition from out of state to Raleigh as stress free as possible. We were able to limit the number of trips down to be at key activities and all else was handled virtually. We were very pleased with her great inspection resources as well as other service recommendations. We would definitely recommend her to anyone who is in a need of a realtor!

Margaret & Carlos Fontiveros

We are beyond grateful to be able to work with Heather Donovan to sell our current home as well as to purchase our new forever home.  She first caught our attention with her generous distribution of beautiful orange pumpkins on everyone’s porch in our neighborhood of over 600 homes at Halloween.  Simply from that kind gesture, I knew that I wanted to work with her.  However, when it came time to start looking for a new home, my husband wanted to try a different realtor.  The experience turned out to be quite disappointing and after just a few weeks, I implored him to switch to Heather.  We are SO glad we did!!  Heather really cares about her clients.  She is quick to respond to all emails, texts and phone calls and seems to be available at any hour of the day.  She listens to her client’s needs and always gives 110% to do what she can to keep her clients happy. She will get involved as much or as little as her clients prefer but you can always count on her to make sure things are getting done.  She is smart, savvy and experienced and I trust her completely!  She understands the home-buying experience from both the seller and buyer’s perspective and all of the emotional and personal feelings that come along with it.  However, don’t let that pink jacket or pink logo fool you- she is tough as nails on the business side of things too and does not shy away from conflicts that may arise when trying to help her clients get the deal they want or need.  After several months of working with her I am please to not only call her my realtor but to call her my friend.  It is difficult to find words gushy enough to express how I truly feel about Heather - she is just SO good at what she does and you will not regret a decision to work with her!

I have known Heather for over 20 years both professionally and personally. Next time I buy a house or know of a friend or family member buying/selling, I will not hesitate to recommend Heather. To Heather, clients are not just transactions. She genuinely values everyone she works with, she is highly creative and can think outside the box to creatively market your property or find you the home of your dreams. I recently watched Heather build her photography brand in a year and has a network of over 14,000 that she could share your property with. Heather is one of those individuals that truly cares about people, she wants clients to have a good experience, she is very detail oriented, very responsive and she works hard at remembering all the little details/things that matter to that client. I highly recommend her!  https://www.facebook.com/HeatherDRealEstate/videos/1583739521715352/

I have known Heather Donovan for more than a decade. I met her during her tenure as the amazing advertising director for Indian Country Today Media Network. Heather is the consummate professional—savvy, extremely skilled in sales and marketing, detail-oriented and attentive to the needs of her clients. It was always a pleasure being able to bring my company's clients to Heather because I knew that she would treat them well and they would get great results. Over the years, Heather also became a friend, which I think has been the case for many of us who know Heather. I was thrilled to find out that Heather had decided to go into real estate. This is a natural fit for her since she is, above all, a "people person" and people are drawn to her energy and wonderful personality. I highly recommend Heather to everyone!
