Heather was amazing. We found the perfect house with her help. She was super patient, always responsive, and helpful the whole way. I’ve already referred her to 2 work friends!

Heather is the best! Her attention to detail and quick follow up makes her the one and only realtor I’d want to work with in all North Carolina

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!

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!

Every phase of selling our old house to buying our new house went flawlessly ! Heather not only is a great and trusted realtor but a person you can depend on to get results and go the extra mile to wrap up a deal !  We are so glad we picked Heather as our realtor – trust me , you will not find a better one !!!

— Pat & Ritchey Magee

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!

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!

— Heather & Brian McGowan

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.

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!
