Heather is great, flexible, and willing to work. I worked with her on a deal that we closed together, and both heather and her team were great. I recommend her to people that are moving into or around the coastal orange county area.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Turtle Ridge, Irvine, CA.

Heather represented me as seller's agent for my condo in Turtle Ridge area of Irvine and helped successfully find a buyer within 10 days of listing and closed in a little over a month. Impressive, when you consider that we never met in person and did the whole thing over call/email/messages. I found her through Zillow, read the reviews and gave her a call, then decided that I want to work with her. I'm glad that I did. Here's why...

- She's very diligent, on top of things and easy to get a hold of. You'd think these are basic traits that every agent should have these days but where she exceeds others, in my opinion, is that she's to the point, straight, and no fluff kind of agent, which are very hard to come by these days in this trade! Unlike some of the other agents who over-promise to get the deal and then under-deliver due to incompetence or personal gain motives, she tells you the reality and then goes out and over-delivers.

Here's what I mean: When I got the first offer within 10 days, she assessed the market situation (knowledge of the area) and advised me to accept the offer and move on. When I told her that I'll be losing money net on the transaction, and asked her if she'd be willing to reduce her commission, she simply said "Yes" even though we had agreed on a higher commission percentage on paper before. Again no BS! Any other agent would have risked their client and waited out for another offer but she didn't. And guess what, that was the one and only offer that came in. She has your best interest in mind and truly looks after you no matter what.

- Last but not least, she's trustworthy. It is important to delegate your biggest investment to someone you can trust. To trust someone, they need to have two things: Character and Competence. One without the other is a naïve kind of trust. And I can attest in her case she's very competent with extensive experience and local knowledge of the market, and she's high level of integrity and character, meaning her words and actions are aligned. That's why you can trust her.

That's it. I hope you find this testimonial useful in your quest to find a good agent. I tried to steer away from generic reviews and give you the actual reasons why I highly recommend Heather to anyone looking to buy or sell a house, hands down.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.175M in Laguna Niguel, CA.

Heather has helped us to find two homes over the past few years - one in Turtle Ridge, Irvine and the other in the Ocean Ranch area of Laguna Niguel. In both cases she was superb in how she advised us, responded quickly and knowledgeably to our many questions and requests, and guided us through the whole process. Also of note, she was patient and considerate of our wants and needs - even after viewing many homes, before we utimately found one that was a perfect fit. I would highly recommend her on the basis of strong competence, market knowledge, integrity, and attention to even the smallest detail. Over the years we have worked with many real estate agents and found Heather to be the very best.

Heather is the best agent I have had. She is helpful with her in-depth knowledge of the area, always available to assist in every stages of the process, even at odd hours with a buyer from oversea like us (9 hours difference). We almost completely relied on Heather with recommendations related to the transaction. Highly recommend.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $3.575M in Newport Coast, CA.

Heather is someone that I would highly recommend especially for buyers who are living overseas looking for a home in the Newport Coast area. Her excellent local knowledge, strong work ethics and integrity, friendliness, and negotiation skills were a tremendous asset when I was looking for a home. Her quick turn around time on many of my inquiries and availability at odd hours to accomodate the 15 hour time difference were vital to securing the perfect home for my family in a relatively short period of time. Heather not only goes out of her way to give you any help you need during the transaction period but is also great at providing the after service to make sure you will have little difficulties settling down in a new neighborhood. Heather is very sincere, professional, and a trusted adviser that made buying a home a very smooth process.

Bought a home in 2012.

Heather was so professional and an absolute delight to work with. I couldnt have asked for a better agent. Coming to her with not much knowledge, I immediately felt comfortable with her thorough explanation of everything. Thank you for everything youve done for my family and I! I have, and will continue to refer my friends and family to her!
