“I used Heather Hadden as my real estate agent starting in the fall of 2006. I purchased my first condo in February of 2007. Heather was an excellent resource for me. She was patient, professional, and honest. She took every question I had seriously and gave me solid advice. I am so happy in my condo; in my building where condos sell for 6-15% over the asking price, she was able to negotiate a $10,000.00 discount on my unit! This is unheard of in my building. Since my condo has closed, she has kept me abreast of recent sales in my building and has updated me on the market on a regular basis. I sincerely recommend Heather to any prospective buyers or sellers.”
