As a first time home buyer, I was intimidated by the entire process of buying a home. Heather helped me understand every step and was extremely patient with me. She made the whole experience less daunting and I was able to have fun! I truly value her knowledge and expertise, and highly recommend her! She helped me find a condo in the area I was looking within my budget. We closed last Friday and I couldn't be happier!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Bath, ME.
Heather is a pleasure to work with. She was extremely responsive and patient with all of our (many) questions and concerns. She helped us navigate our first home-buying process with comfort and ease. It was clear that she cared so much about our experience and our happiness with our new home- we couldn't have asked for a better agent!
We are happy to recommend Heather Shields. She has a pleasant and approachable manner and having grown up in the area is also very knowledgeable about the properties on Casco Bay. Heather was responsive to all phone calls and emails from us and was thorough and timely with all the details associated with buying the house. She also obviously has a good working relationship with fellow agents. Our experience couldn't have been better.
It is a pleasure to recommend Heather Shields. She is a knowledgeable, approachable realtor who goes the extra mile for her clients. Heather not only helped us to buy our dream house, but she also voluntarily stepped in to facilitate the sale of our other home at the same time! She is responsive, detail oriented and earned our trust early in the buying process. Heather is a great communicator- she's direct and gets the answers you need in a timely manner. We felt like we were her only clients during our time working together, though we knew she was working just as hard negotiating several other deals. We would definitely work with Heather again!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in South Portland, ME.
We were absolutely thrilled with our experience with Heather Shields. We corresponded with two other agents before coming to the area to purchase a home, and neither one was very responsive. Heather returned every phone call and email promptly. She listened carefully to our wants and needs, and she was proactive in helping us find the right home for our family. She was very knowledgeable about the area and about houses at all price points, plus she explained the whole purchase process very well. Although we were not the biggest spenders she was dealing with at the time, we felt like nothing was more important to her than our satisfaction. She also has a great sense of humor so was able to make the whole process fun.
We were nervous and fairly clueless first-time home buyers. But Heather's knowledge, her warm and friendly demeanor, her relationships with her colleagues and her expertise in real estate helped to make our experience as first-time home buyers truly positive.
We would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone buying or selling a property.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Yarmouth, ME.
I have moved a lot in the past and, as a result, have worked with a number of realtors in Maine, Virginia and Maryland. Working with Heather was definitely one of the best buyer realtor experiences I've had. She is a hard worker and prompt in responding to my questions, etc. She has great relationships with other important people in the home buying process, and referred me to one of the best and most thorough home inspectors I've worked with. More important, Heather is a good listener and, as a home buyer, I can't think of a more important trait in your realtor. If the realtor is not listening to what you want and don't want, chances are you'll never find (or it will take forever to find) your home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $325K in Rockport, ME.
Heather Shields is an outstanding Realtor. She is organized, executes everything quickly and thoroughly, an excellent buying and selling advocate without the slightest hint of condescension and her people skills are second to none. Buying or selling a house is personal, private and can be painful sometimes but working with Heather is always a pleasure. I wish she could sell real estate nation wide!
While looking for a house, our broker, Heather, took the time to identify with our situation. She provided listings that matched our "must haves." Responses to our questions and inquiries were immediate and thorough. Could not be more pleased with Heather's efforts, professionalism, and insights. Thank you Heather!
