Heather was extremely helpful throughout our buying process and made everything super smooth. She always gave honest feedback about the houses and pointed out several things in listings that I had missed. When we toured open houses together we were able to brainstorm all the work that we might wanna do in the house, and Heather was able to provide feedback on what’s possible vs not, give rough estimates of cost, and connect me with architects and contractors that could help.
We wrote two offers together. In the offer process she worked with a great sense of urgency and got the offers out very fast which proved to be a winning strategy. By far, the best thing about working with Heather is that she never pressured us to raise our offer prices and was very happy to submit offers with the price and terms that we are comfortable with and even talked me out of upping initial offers when we believe there were no other offers on the table. I’m pretty sure I could have paid more money for the house had I been with another agent.
Heather Stoltz is fantastic!!! Not only is she a pleasure to work with, but she made a point to make sure we were comfortable and that she was meeting our needs every step of the way. As first time home buyers, it was very important to us that we had someone who was patient, trusting and listens to our wants and needs.
Buying a home in such a competitive market such as San Francisco – you need to work with someone who knows how to compete in this market AND has a long track record of selling homes! Heather has all of that and more – and honestly is the best realtor you could ask for in this market! We highly recommend her if you are looking for a realtor in the SF Bay area.
Heather’s the best house-hunting friend we could’ve asked for.
She’s an SF native not afraid to brave the winding hills of Oakland at 8am or 8pm when it can be scary and weird up there for the uninitiated. She’s also got a down-to-earth take on Marin, and she’s both patient and willing to make repeated trips over the bridge to chase a wild goose. She hooked us up with the MLS for the entire Bay Area which was incredibly helpful for shopping in and out of the city, and she was very patient with our evolving sensibilities as our search for the perfect place wore on.
But beyond hooking up off-hours viewings through other brokers, Heather is an invaluable judge of a property’s condition – she knows what cracks to look for, the potential pitfalls of almost any neighborhood in the area, and since she’s a successful property owner herself, she’s got a great handle on how much you’re going to have to spend to “fix ‘er up”.
She’ll shoot you straight and smile and laugh through a year of searching with you, if that’s what it takes. We’re very happy to have had Heather as an agent and now a friend, and we’ll work with her again when we decide to move. Thanks, Heather!
Heather is SUPERLATIVE, SUPERLATIVE, SUPERLATIVE at what she does.
“Genuine”, “warm”, “responsive”, “assertive”, “savvy”, “patient”, “reassuring” and “extremely competent” are other words to describe her virtues as a real estate agent. Heather was extremely patient with multiple showings, offers, and signature gatherings. She demonstrated prior experience with financial situations that were as complex as mine. She coached me through the bid process to ensure my offers were the appropriate amount (and things worked once I finally started listening to her. :)). She opened up an effective channel of communication with the seller’s agent to maximize my attractiveness as a buyer. She kept me on task and made sure I always knew what was coming next. Any time I had a question around a process, she could essentially walk me through the flowchart off the top of her head. She kept me positive through the painful escrow process, and would act as my advocate to mitigate problems with delays with closing.
Now I am in my big, beautiful new home by the sea, and I couldn’t be happier with my experience with Heather. I would recommend her to friends in all confidence.
Heather was a dream to work with! I know that sounds cheesy, but it’s the absolute truth. We had a pretty convoluted condo purchase. It was supposed to be a simple, 30 day close and dragged out to about 100 days. If it wasn’t for Heather’s knowledge of the business, great attitude with us, and ingenuity in ways to get things done, we would definitely still be renting. It was our first purchase ever, and she was absolutely great. She definitely got herself some clients for life after this deal. Thanks for everything Heather!
Heather was a huge help to us as first-time buyers, not just in finding interesting houses that we could afford, but in taking us through the process of making offers and closing. As much paperwork and hassle as we had to go through, I feel confident that it would have been ten times more aggravating without Heather taking care of us and explaining what we needed to know. Having an agent that we could trust like that was priceless.
Heather was absolutely amazing at getting this done. She really understands the market and what it takes to get a house. She walked me through the whole process so that I was comfortable and didn’t have any surprises. She also was amazing at working with the all the related professionals (seller’s agent, loan agent, appraiser, inspector, etc) to ensure everything was done properly and on time. She keeps up to date on the industry and was a great source for any and all questions. A big huge thanks to Heather for getting me my dream home!!
Heather was great. Extremely responsive and knowledgeable. Throughout the process, she appeared to be more concerned with finding a house that fit our needs than making the sale. Once we found the house we loved, she gave us great advice and we were able to put in the winning bid. Really enjoyed working with Heather — and would definitely recommend her.
Heather is super experienced and not pushy. Smart, savvy and easy to be with- it was great to work with her.
Heather is a great agent! She will get you the home you need!
Heather is ON THE BALL! She’s the first person in the real estate/mortgage industry who works faster than I do. Very responsive, very knowledgeable. I’m VERY happy with my experience. 🙂
Heather was great. We were first time homebuyers and she guided us through the process and was very responsive in answering all my questions and negotiating with the seller, even on weekends. She was very knowledgeable about the area as well (Pacifica). I would recommend her without reservations.
Heather is so professional and knowledgable. She is a great realtor to have working with you.
Heather is great. She is dedicated to her job, waited for me to see the house for an hour, and she got me a private pocket listing in San Franciso Bernal Height district. How rare is that? Anyways, because of her, I have a home in a sunny SF neighborhood. And I got it as such as great price. Thanks Heather.
Already recommended her to a friend.
Heather understood exactly the house we wanted to live on. She was present at the right moment. She also was always in a good mood and had good advices… Thank you Heather.
The SF Bay area has unique legal and municipal buying conditions and Heather was not only well-versed in them but knew how to work within the system to maximize our negotiating position and expedite the closing.
Heather exceeded my expectations when she successfully sold a family property in a short period of time. She was resourceful, knowledgeable in all areas of her profession, compassionate to the needs of her client, and persuasive in negotiating with all parties concerned. Her handling and explanation of contracts were concise and thorough. Above all, her communication skills were exemplary. She responded readily with every inquiry and was very patient to explain in fine understandable detail complicated real estate issues, and legal aspects associated with property management. She comes highly recommended and would most definitely be a great asset to any company or partnership in the real estate industry.
I highly recommend Heather Stoltz as a realtor and as a professional with integrity. Heather is no-nonsense, get-the-work-done, and whip smart with careful attention to detail. She knows the housing market and the loan market and didn’t soft peddle any of the hurdles we’d need to cross. We immediately trusted her. Selling a TIC unit is not easy, and Heather knows how to avoid common stumbling blocks so when we put it on the market, we knew what we were in for. She found us several great offers very quickly. She’s honest. When the buyer signed our disclosures she went the extra mile to make sure the quirks of our old building and TIC were fully revealed and accepted. We feel great about the sale. And then, almost immediately, she found us another place to buy. We actually closed on both within days. Miracle.
I didn’t think it was possible, but Heather was able to predict almost everything that happened during the process of selling our house. All of her advice proved to be right on and she managed all buyer/seller interaction with transparency and positivity. She was patient with some fairly difficult people and she never ever lost her cool. When I’m ready to buy again I will absolutely go back to Heather.
Heather was fantastic and incredibly patient with me. This is my first home and despite the fact that I knew nothing about the process and what I needed to do, she guided me through each step with care, diligence, and a forgiving sense of humor. I would consider her a great asset to any affiliation and a trustworthy guide to anyone considering buying or selling a home. I looked to her for advice and an honest appraisal of the benefit, risk, and perspective that I could not have achieved on my own.
I told Heather I wanted to most painless, efficient transaction I could get and she delivered perfectly. Very professional, very knowledgeable! and really listened to what I had to say and made this easy for me.
I was referred by another real estate agent who worked with my friend in the past to Heather. Heather helped me selling my condo. She gave me enough support without overwhelming me, and I have to say that I had a pretty good experience selling my condo. When I decide to purchase a real estate, I would like to work with her again.
Heather is very knowledgeable and personable. Felt very comfortable with her from the start. She didn’t push anything on us and was there for us through the whole process.
Heather was very supportive in helping me through the selling process as the successor trustee of a home held in a trust. She had great contacts to help me get the house cleared and then maximized for sale while keeping costs under control. She had great strategies for attracting prospective buyers so that in the end we had several bids at amounts considerably over list price. I’d work with her again if te opportunity arose.

I highly recommend Heather Stoltz as your realtor agent. She is very smart in helping you to deal with everything in home buying/selling process. She helped me a lot on my first time buying home of a short sale property. She uses her expertise and experience in realtor market helping me to overcome a lot of hurdles I need to cross. I am really appreciated for her hard work and patience in the long loan process ( due to some problems, the lender asked for three times extension of closing day). I would like to recommend her to others without any hesitance. She is great and excellent.

Heather did great for me–was very patient with all my questions. She helped me through the two or three hurdles, and the deal got done (true test of any real estate facilitator). I’d buy through her again and recommend her to friends.

Heather has done an awesome job guiding me through the process of buying a property in San Francisco. She knows everything very well about all of the different types of properties for sale (short shale, TIC, REO, etc). I will certainly contact her the next time I buy or sell a property.

She is the best, did such an awesome job from the very beginning until the closing. Flexible, easy to deal with, understanding, genuine, professional, prompt, good with computer techs., assisted with getting roofer, cleaning, staging, paint, moving, etc, you will love to have such agent.
Heather made the process of selling my house a seamless process. She brings to the table a huge amount of knowledge, experience and professionalism. I am 100% satisfied with my partnership with Heather and highly recommend her as a top level agent.
Heather was the absolute best throughout our home buying experience. She was professional, knowledgeable and we could not have asked for better guidance or support from her! Although we don’t miss house hunting, we definitely will miss seeing Heather regularly!
Heather Stoltz was the sweetest and most personable real estate professional that I’ve ever met and had the opportunity to work with. Aside from her abundant knowledge and experience with the San Francisco market, she was gracious enough to guide me through a very complex purchase. She knew everything about TICs, the conversion processes, and reassured all my questions. She was A+ for me, and I’m sure that anyone would be overwhelming pleased with her professionalism.
Heather was simply amazing! This was our first home purchase and Heather held our hands throughout the entire process. She knew what we wanted and worked hard to get us into our dream house. We 100% recommend Heather as your next agent!
