“My focus is meeting your needs”! With over a decade of experience behind me, I am clear on what makes for a happy and successful experience in buying and selling. You need someone who understands your preference; someone who is a skilled negotiator; someone who is tireless in follow-up; someone who pays attention to many details and finally, someone who has a strong belief in professionalism and ethics.
Whether relocating across the country, or across town, buying a home is an exciting experience, and probably the largest financial investment you will ever make. Working with a competent & compassionate Realtor committed to serving you and your needs makes the difference. My goal is to serve my clients and provide exceptional service before, during, and after a sale is made.

"Heather you were a star when it came to selling our house. Thirty days on the market and you had it sold. We are very appreciative of your never ending energy, your ethical and Professional excellence, and your tireless effort you put into selling our house. I have never seen anyone put their heart and soul into work like you did. You are amazing and we will definitely recommend you to all we come into contact with. It is a pleasure to know excellent customer service still exists!!! "

"We just wanted to write to you to tell you how much we appreciate your work on selling our house and helping us find our beautiful new one. We have bought and sold a lot of property through the years, but have never had such a positive experience as we did with you. In a relatively slow market, we sold our home in a month (which we have never done) and I attribute that to your marketing, as well as your great ideas on staging our home. You then found many homes for us to look at and gave us good advice on making offers on properties we were interested in. The home we got is perfect, we got it at a great price, and we are very happy here.
"We really appreciated your follow-up on any issues and your great communication in keeping us informed on all stages of the process. I have given your name and phone number to friends who are considering selling their homes and told them about our great experience with you. Again, thank you for all your hard work, professionalism and kindness through what is often a difficult process. You made it easy!!! "

"It was my pleasure and good fortune having Heather Harkema representing me as my real estate agent on my recent home sale and purchase. With Heather's good advice and help staging my home, my home sold the very first day. Because of this quick sale I had only one month to find a new place. Heather understood this and was very generous with her time. When I was available for house hunting trips, Heather made herself available without hesitation. Heather always responded and returned my telephone calls and emails. I have purchased and sold ten homes in my lifetime, working with real estate agents in the East Coast, Pacific NW, the American SW and here in the plains of Colorado. Heather made this real estate experience the best experience I have ever had. Her work ethic, honest communication and negotiating skills were always geared to my best interest. Heather is not only very knowledgeable in her profession but an outstanding person. I hope it's be long time before I move again, but when I'm ready. I'll be calling on Heather as my listing agent."
"As a long-time coach in the collegiate ranks, my wife and I have moved nine times to seven different cities and have vast experience with REALTORS. Without a doubt Heather stand head and shoulders above any professional we have had contact with over the past 20 years. She provided top shelf service, went above and beyond the call of duty on more than one occasions. Her commitment to the profession, her quality of service, and her genuine interest in the client is not only rare today, it is virtually unheard of in terms of the way she represented her company."

"I have dealt with numerous real estate agents and never found any to be as hard working and sincere as Heather. We are so grateful that Heather worked so hard to complete all the arrangements necessary for us to purchase our home. We are so very happy with our home."

"Heather is a person who works hard, is honest, dependable, and is truly interested in her clients' needs. These qualities are hard to find nowdays. We had pleasure in meeting Heather and through her assistance, we were able to locate and purchase our retirement property. This conclude our personal search, which was ongoing for five years. Heather always conducted in a true professional manner. She did extensive research to locate properties that might fulfill our requirements while maintaining our budget limitations. She kept us informed of code changes and restrictions. She made us aware of potential problems in certain areas. Without hesitation, she put on her booths and struggled through the mud and snow with us and for us. Working with Heather was an education from which we have benefited greatly. After closing on our property, she continued to follow up and assist us. She readily gave us information as we started to develop our property. Through her interest, concern, and assistance, we know we have saved thousands of dollars."
Ray & Kitty
"Heather worked diligently to find us the right property for our vacation home. She found us a lovely property on the side of mountain, overlooking the water. She was also instrumental in negotiating the purchase price down to a manageable amount. Of course, this meant less commission for her! However, the service did not stop there. Although the actual sale was final rather quickly, Heather still took her own time away from her family to look after our property. Whenever there was a question concerning local jurisdiction, septic design, etc., Heather was always available to speak with us immediately. She never hesitated to get on the phone and find answers to any of our questions. She didn't stop until she had all of the answers. This all took place after the sale was final. In fact, we were so impressed with Heather's professionalism, that we referred our good friends to her, when they were looking for vacation property. They bought 10 acre parcel as well. And again, she went the extra mile for our friends. She roamed all over the 10 acre parcel looking for property markers, just to make sure that the maps were accurate. I cannot say enough about Heather's dealings as a real estate agent."
- Don & Carol
"Moving to a different city is a daunting and frightening task. There is no getting around it. But when we found Heather as our agent, our job became manageable. Heather put a friendly face between us and all those difficult decisions. She worked tirelessly and always seemed to be available. She handled all parties involved with competence and charm. Heather is a big reason we ended up with the house we wanted, at a great price."
