Heather was our selling agent for a residential waterfront property in South Florida. We live in Hawaii, so even though we have never met face to face, Heather was responsive & professional through a challenging sale. I highly recommend her & hope to work with her again in the future.

I found Heather on Zillow after I had a very negative experience with the realtors who handled my rental property . Heather's reviews were just amazing , each and every one. When I contacted Heather and Brian we set up a meeting at my property. I live out of the area so we arranged getting together when I was in town. I was really skeptical of any realtor based only past experience. However from the moment I met Heather and Brian, my skepticism disappeared . They provided me with a computerized presentation that explained their plan to market my house along with their affiliations. The entire experience was seamless. What really impressed me that every phone call, text or email was answered in a timely basis. I felt as if I had someone really working for me. Proof of this fabulous team is my house was sold in 23 hours after being on the market! After the inspection , Heather and Brian negotiated for me and were very successful. We closed on the house in 2 and a half weeks. I highly recommend Heather and would give her 10 stars, hands down Less ... More

I would highly recommend Heather Lefebvre. She gave me great advice based on my current situation. Even thought I did not buy anything on my last trip down from NY, Heather still took the time to help me look for a place and offered to take me around when I come back. I would definitely use her again when the time comes. Thanks

Heather could not have done a better job. She found the home we were looking for, actually better than we thought we could afford. She was on top of things all the way from beginning to end, we could not have been happier. Heather went on to sell our condo in record time, sooner than we thought and got more money for it than we had anticipated. Heather is extremely professional. We highly recommend her.

When I began looking for a real estate agent, I randomly emailed about 10 different people. I got the timeliest and best responses to questions from Heather and her partner Brian so I thought I'd give them a try. I definitely made the right choice. Heather is super organized, professional, and a nice person also. She had good ideas about preparing my condo for showings and her knowledge of the beach area real estate market was superb. I have already recommended her to someone and would highly recommend her to anyone else with real estate needs. I had a second property to list after she sold my condo and there wasn't even a thought about using someone else. Her partner Brian also worked on the properties that I have listed and I've found him to be as organized, efficient, and professional as Heather. Overall I have had a very good experience with them....................Just an update.... Heather and Brian also helped me sell a second property in Fort Lauderdale and did a tremendous job once again.... I highly recommend them. Less ... More

Heather was a pleasure to work with. Very thorough and diligent. This was a difficult negotiation as it was a foreclosed property. Heather did a great job of navigating the challenges and keeping the deal on track. Will definitely work with her again in this market.

As a buyer in Lauderdale by The Sea. Heather was first introduced to me by a broker who knows my son Bruno. She was informed that I was an educated customer who always did a very thorough homework when buying or selling. Realestate is only second to my first passion for medicine. I have purchased and sold many properties over my 33 years in South Florida. Heather represented us in the purchase of a condo in Lauderdale By The Sea, where good properties do not last very long. The location was very desirable, across from AIA, with private access to the beach. Because they were already three potential buyers planning to take a second look, Heather freed herself immediately the day after I called her. We closed the deal on the spot! She saved me 10% on the purchase price by suggesting a 30% down payment. Way to go Heather! As a seller. In January this year, about six months later, my wife and I decided to sell our beautiful condo at l'Hermitage !, in Fort Lauderdale.. We purchased it pre-construction, for th elocation and the very best 24 hour panoramic views thrue South. We saw cruise ships leaved and airplane arrived through thousand of sunsets. I was not flexible on the price. Heather recommended that we add a Japanese Shoji wall to dreate a third bedroom. She convinced us to complete a powder room which we had used for storage. A thight schedule limited openings for visits and posed a challenge to her team. Still they were graceful and gentle about it. Because of her experience on the water front, she was able to pull few secrets weapons to conlcude a cash sale very close to our asking price. Heather we could not have done it without you.

I live in Canada and for the last 12 months, I have been in contact with Heather to find a place for investement and for my vacation days in Fort Lauderdale. Not only is she extremely hard working and dedicated to her clients needs, but she also has great interpersonal skills, charm and is a delight to do business with. She is very attentive and perseverant. She has expert knowledge in the field. She is extremely flexible and patient. She kept me well informed on the progression of my file and she turned what could have been a daunting experience into one which was pleasant and carried out in a thoroughly professional manner. Sure she is one of the best, professional and still personal agent I have ever met. I highly recommend Heather Lefebvre for all of your real estate needs.

Heather and Brian sold our house in Fort Lauderdale in 2 months. In a crazy market, that is fantastic, when other houses on our street still sit. We got what we wanted, too. They both have great business acumen, but it's the little things that made them great: 1. THEY CALL AND TEXT BACK IMMEDIATELY 2. They know the market and gave us great advice when we needed to modify our business plan. 3. We received a weekly report from them summarizing the activity of the week and recommendations to move forward. I cannot recommend these guys enough. I am 62 and have owned a dozen properties in my life. I have NEVER had more straightforward, proactive service out of an agent. I will use them again on a condo I'm going to sell in a year or so.

I highly recommend Heather to anyone who is looking for an exceptional Agent. I live in California and was looking for a vacation home in Ft. Lauderdale. I first made contact with Heather by an E-mail I sent through Zillow. She responded immediately and we set up a call to discuss my needs. From there on Heather took care of everything. Since I live in California, she pre-screened all the properties before I flew into Florida and she set up appointments for me to view all of the pre-selected homes. Because we were in such a time crunch, she worked with us through the weekend and 4th of July holiday in order to make sure we had all the information we needed. Heather continued to work with us over the following few weeks and on our second trip she found us the home of our dreams. She negotiated a much better deal than we anticipated and worked diligently with the selling agent to secure the property. Since I was back in California, she even did the walk through and took possession of the property for us. I would like to say the story ends there but she has been there for us even months after the close of escrow. Because we only use the home a few months out of the year, Heather set us up on a vacation rental program to generate income on the property. She personally oversaw the entire process, including all the contractors, interior decorator, pool service, landscaping, furniture and even the management company that will be taking care of property. I can?t stop raving about how great she?s been. All I can say is Thank you, Thank You, Thank you!!! There is no way I could have ever of done it without you. Heather is not just a real estate professional; she truly is a real estate concierge who will deliver above and beyond your expectations. Less ... More

I today wish to express my sincerest thanks to Heather Lefebvre,Real Estate Broker-Associate. Not only did she find my fine new house in Ft. Lauderdale for me, and helped me negotiate with the former owner for a fair price. She also assisted me in every conceivable way to carry the whole deal through: Heather arranged appointments with lawyers, and contacted electricians, bricklayers, carpenters, etc. for me who could execute the necessary repairs and alterations to the house, and on top of it controlled and supervised the work to be done. So, my new house was ready for my move-in in a rather short time, and I am now looking forward to my first holidays to be spent there. I believe that all these services went far beyond any service one would usually expect from a broker, and I really cannot imagine how I, as a buyer from overseas, could have handled all this without Heather's professional and very efficient help. Thanks a lot again, Heather! Mirko AhrensGermany Less ... More

Heather helped my partner and I find a home in Boca Raton this year. Not only did she expertly navigate us through the tricky South Florida market but she did so with kindness and sensitivity to our needs. Not only did Heather help us purchase our perfect vacatiopn home, he also connected us with a great loan broker that went above and beyond to help us relize our dream. I do not think you will find a better realtor in South Florida, in fact, not anywhere else either. If you are looking for property in South Florida, give Heather a call. She will teat you right and do what it takes to get the job done right. Thank you Heather! Less ... More

I am from out-of-state and just bought a 4 bedroom property with Heather. --Personalized Feedback-- Heather did things right from the very beginning. I have contacted / had communications with around 20 agents over the last 8 months to buy properties (NYC, Chicago, Ft. Lauderdale) and Heather is the best agent that I have worked with. Unlike most agents, Heather was immediately responsive. She arranged a call to understand what I was looking for. She did not attempt to sign me up for automated MLS listing updates (aka mass spam), which many agents do and reflects what I consider poor service. Instead, Heather considered my goals and sent me a targeted list of properties to consider. In addition to her list, I did my own research and came up with ~25 properties to consider. Heather went through each one and gave me feedback, which helped focus our search. Between her list and my list, we ended up with about 10 properties to check out prior to my weekend visit to Lauderdale By The Sea. --Prepared and Organized-- During the visit, Heather showed my wife and I the area and the 10 properties. She obviously knew the area well, having grown up there. She had checked out some of the properties beforehand, which helped optimize our short time there. She had a schedule set up and we never wasted time sitting around waiting for something. --Negotiations and Sale at Our Initial Offer Price-- We ended up deciding between two properties. The owners of the first property had made some renovations, were taking a hit, and were being unrealistic in the negotiations. We thus approached the second property. The owners of the second property had already come to a deal in principle with other buyers, but Heather was nevertheless able to intervene on our behalf. In fact, we ended up buying the property for a lower price than the other buyers because Heather was able to convince the sellers that our payment structure was better. The sale price ended up being our initial offer (Heather successfully resisted any upward adjustment). The two appraisals for the property were at and above the sale price. --Local Connections and General Help-- Our property is a secondary home. Heather had great connections. Her colleague, Brian, is very helpful and helped us repaint the entire home at-cost ($2000 for a 4 BR home). He organized a big team of painters, took before and after pictures, and also made measurements where we needed them in planning our furniture purchases. Brian is also helping with carpet, pressure, and general cleaning. Heather and Brian coordinated with and let in the termite inspectors, wind mitigation inspectors, appraisers, surveyors. Being out-of-state, this service was invaluable. Heather also recommended a good property management company. --Generally-- Heather is very responsive, generally responding to emails within an hour or less. She also responds to voicemails promptly. If she is out, her colleague Brian will respond. For me personally, one of the more frustrating things in working via email with people is often their reading comprehension. Fortunately, with Heather, when you ask several questions in an email, you will get a precise response to each. I've never had a hedgy vague or non-responsive answer from her, and you never have to repeat questions to get a proper answer. Overall, my wife and I were very happy with Heather's service and hope to work with her again in the future. Less ... More

Chi and Sojin, Wow! Thank you for taking time out of your busy NY schedule to write such a detailed review.You really made my day(smiling!) I work very hard and many Buyer's are not loyal and do not value my time as a professional.You both were excellent to work for exclusively.We had a common respect and understanding from the beginning. You had many great questions along the way.Thank you for trusting me to show you your locations of interest-the positives and negatives of each home in detail,discussing vacation home program perks and all the points of interests visitors desire to have access to in close proximity to your home. Thank you for trusting me to recommend the home that was best for not only vacation home reasons,but for resale value as well. To new beginnings...I am excited to see your home furnished and ready for really good times and making you money :) I promised Sojin an Herb Garden. Let me know when you arrive if she wants it.

Very attentive. Heather works for you. She will talk to realtors and banks for you. She has expert knowledge in the field. She is extremely flexible and patient. Heather places the clients intrest above her own. She does not steer you in the direction for the larger commission for her self, but the best value while helping you get the property that is right for the client. Other agents push what they like on you. Heather pays attention to what you want and works night and day until the she finds the right property. She is understanding if you needs change in mid process and alters accordingly without missing a beat. Once you are qualified with her, she is in your corner come what may.

I highly recommend Heather Lefebvre for all of your real estate needs. She has an excellent reputation in the industry of having a vast knowledge of the South Florida area and understands the entire scope of the real estate market. Her attention to detail, work ethic, and dedication to each of her clients are second to none. She is constantly researching the market- making sure she finds the absolute best deal for each specific situation. In 2007-08, she was instrumental in helping me sell my property in Plantation Acres, along with assisting me with my relocation to Jupiter, FL. Not only was her research vital in helping me make a smooth transition up to Jupiter, but her knowledge and expertise with the closing process of both my sale in Plantation, along with my purchase in Jupiter, was top notch. I know that I can always count on Heather for all of my real estate needs. Her integrity and dedication is unmatched in the industry. Less ... More

After several attempts to locate an agent to help an out of state purchaser find a home in the Miami, Florida market, I came across Heather. She was very patiened with me and helped me understand the short sale system. After I purchased my home with Heather's help, I referred her to the rest of my family that also enjoyed working with her and her patience, they also were able to close within a month after me.
