Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Felton, CA.
I would highly recommend Heidi Robinson for real estate needs in Santa Cruz county. My husband and I both work at home and so needed work space and well as living space. That along with wanting to live in Felton and having a limiting price point made finding a place for us a challenge. When we first sat down to talk about our parameters, Heidi was quick to pick up on our needs and wants. She told us it would be possible to get a property at our price point, but that finding one with the space layout we needed would be a challenge. However, she thought that with persistence, it could be done.
She set us up with a search tool of the MLS that showed us the properties that met our parameters as soon as they came on the market. She had us do drive-bys and go to open houses, and personally showed us places that looked like good possibilities. We made offers on three properties that we did not end up buying, but it was all good training for getting the property that we eventually did purchase.
Over the whole process, having a person to help us who was professional, straight-forwardly honest, encouraging and pleasant to work with was a big boost. We could not have asked for a better experience with a realtor. She has years of experience doing this, and knows all the ins and outs. She counseled us on how to get an offer accepted. When we were in escrow, she took care of a myriad of necessary details. Now we have a delightful place to live and work!
In sum, Heidi Robinson’s service as a realtor is truly exemplary. She is the best!
Heidi is at the BEST!!!!
She listened to me and she is extremely knowledgeable. She is very detailed which was really important to me. She took me through the total process and was at my side always....going to County, getting old permits, etc.
Her advise was excellent. I found the house of my dreams and it took one year to find it. I was respected and felt no pressure from her, so I could wait for the right opportunity. I just can not say enough good things about her. Some agents want to be your so-called friend.....but when I am going to spend a lot of money..... I want a professional.....AND THAT WAS HEIDI ROBINSON.

I do not like Real Estate Agents, in general. I find them toothy, charming and will say almost anything to make the sale. Were it not for “Disclosure Laws”, we would all be in trouble. Suffice to say, my attitude about Real Estate Agents has much room for improvement.
WITH ONE EXCEPTION! Heidi Robinson is stellar. We searched for 1 1/2 years.....and Heidi hung in there with us, the whole way. Looking at property, after property all over the county. Coming from Woodside and the Peninsula we did have some perspective, however, Heidi did provide valuable insight throughout the process, with superb local knowledge.
She held our hand, walking us through the Santa Cruz Planning Dept. for a few houses that we did not buy. For those that do not know, the Santa Cruz Planning Dept. can be challenging. But she was there, bright eyes and bushy tailed, every time….hours on end. With no guarantee of a sale with us.
In the end, she found us a great deal on EXACTLY the property we were looking for...for so long. Then she really became more impressive. Not only did she do an excellent job of negotiating the deal…. But she did not stop there, her attention to every detail was impressive, by any standard.
I would highly recommend Heidi Robinson, and I do not even like Real Estate Agents.
We worked with Heidi on finding our house in the Bay Area and looked extensively in different neighborhoods for the 'right' property. Heidi was always well-prepared, had relevant information about the home, neighborhood or specific property issues available and provided insight into the home-buying process from start to finish.
We can highly recommend Heidi to anyone looking for a new home in the South Bay and Santa Cruz Mountains.
Sold a Single Family home in 2005 for approximately $750K in Santa Cruz, CA.
When I was looking to buy property Heidi was very accessible, always ready to show me property, and did lots of research ahead of time. She was very knowledgeable about real estate in my area and her advice really paid off! When I wanted to sell she gave me so much help and ideas about so many things! I was really impressed with what she told me I needed to do to get the best sale price for my property, because it worked! I got multiple offers! For both purchasing and selling, Heidi knows how to get the best deal!

Heidi knows the San Lorenzo Valley are very well. She was great at finding us our perfect home. Our home was actually the 7th out of the 8 we looked at. We weren't expecting to find something so perfect so fast. She worked around our scheduling difficulties and we were able to get everything done super fast. I highly recommend Hiedi to anyone who's in need of a realtor.

Heidi was a great agent to work with, she got the job done and really listened to our needs, we will definitely be working with her again! We had mult back and forth offeres and Heidi was able to move the sellers forward to get them to look at the properties repair needs and ajust price accordingly.

I highly recommend Heidi Robinson as realtor. I have worked with other realtors, and although they were competent, Heidi was without doubt the best. I recommend her for three basic reasons: 1) she knows the market, 2) she has mastery of the complicated 'nuts and bolts' of the ENTIRE purchase process, from loan brokerage, to qualification. escrow, inspections, you name it, and most important, 3) she is able to quickly understand what her clients want, and then find that kind of property. I was really impressed at how fast Heidi understood my pretty picky mix of wants and don't wants--combined with a demanding price point. It's like she had ESP; in a very short time, I think we made two tours of properties, she was able to 'home in' (pun intended) on the house I wanted, in the area I wanted, the type of situation (privacy) I wanted...and the price I wanted. She guided, she shepherded me through the purchase process, she 'held my hand' and calmed me when I got frustrated, and I am 100% sure that without her help I never would have found this house, or if, by some miracle, I had found it, the deal would have fallen through. The purchase process is complex, and it can break down or be delayed at many points--and then you lose the house you want, you lose time and you end up paying more. California is a competitive market and not acting quickly enough or in the right sequence, a matter of a day, can cost you. That's why I'm so convinced that having Heidi on my side was the key in making my house purchase fast, painless, successful and profitable. Now I have my home, I'm delighted with it, and Heidi got me such a good deal that I've already seen equity growth--within one year. Thanks so much Heidi, and I look forward to buying my next property with you as well.
Heidi was very helpful and available throughout the process. She brought many things to my attention that I did not consider or know about prior. I always felt she had my best interests in mind. I would recommend her to anybody, she has great knowledge about the Santa Cruz / Central Coast area. Thanks again!

I can't recommend Heidi enough if you are looking to purchase in Santa Cruz County. She is highly knowledgeable about the area including the nuances of forest living, such as trees, soil, etc. - these details made a huge difference! In addition she is extremely honest and forthright and that is always appreciated. I would definitely work with her again if I decide to purchase another home in the region, and if I ever sell, without question, I will be calling her. Do yourself a favor if you are looking to buy or sell in Santa Cruz County and call Heidi.
