“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.”Luis Alonso San Jose,California
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 Ahrens Stockholm, Germany
Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 in Lauderdale By The Sea, FL“I am from out-of-state and just bought a 4 bedroom property with Heather.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.”Chi Cheung New York, NY
“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.”Jeff D Jupiter, Fl
