Where You're At

  • You’re looking to sell your home in the Holly Springs, Topsail Island or the Greater Raleigh-Durham area
  • You are listing due to an employment relocation, up-sizing or down-sizing as your needs change 
  • You want an experienced listing agent with extensive marketing experience.
  • You want to have a partner that will be by your side throughout the entire process advocating for you every step of the way.

Moving out of a home you’ve known for years can be hard, and it can be harder if you don’t have someone to partner with who doesn’t take the time to understand that.

I understand that, friend.

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!! 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.

" Heather really cares about her clients. "

I cannot truly capture here the amazing work that Heather did for our family. Her professionalism was beyond reproach even during challenges. Her network of contractors and industry professionals came through for us repeatedly. Every person she called on our behalf dropped everything to help her out, a true testament to her reliability and well deserved pristine reputation. Heather approached every challenge with a clear strategy for success and she pushed through where others would have given up. She is a true professional who works long days, nights, and weekends for her clients. We are so fortunate to have worked with Heather and are even luckier to call her a friend after this experience.

"Our expectations were exceeded tenfold."

My husband and I can’t say enough great things about Heather. She is truly an amazing woman and realtor. She helped us find our forever home in a very short period of time. Prior to working with Heather we had been looking for a home for over six months. Once we started working with Heather we were closing on a new home in a month. She was realistic about the changing market conditions, and she provided helpful suggestions about pricing to get us our home. Heather was professional during the entire buying process. She was truly a pleasure to work with and we are grateful to her for going above and beyond for us.

"She is truly an amazing woman."

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 to 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!
