    Amber gave Heather 5 stars out of 5
    We HIGHLY recommend Heather and cannot give her enough praise! Her unique combination of expert knowledge, instinct, transparency and grace is unmatched in our area. Two things in particular that helped sell our home (and at a good price) were her ability to evaluate the market and her modern approach to marketing. The photos and videos of our home turned out fantastic and helped our listing stand out. We were also impressed by, and appreciative of, the way Heather kept in constant communication with us throughout the entire process. We were never left wondering the status of things or our next steps. If you are looking for a realtor who will go the extra mile and elevate your sale (or purchase), then you really need to talk to Heather, she is the best!

    John & Christie gave Heather 5 stars out of 5
    When we first started our search in the Outer Banks (OBX), we live in Virginia and had no connections to the area. Over the years we have worked with many real estate agents and knew how tough it can be to find the right partnership. We found Heather Sakers (Coldwell Banker Seaside Realty) from a blind Google search of the "best real estate agents" in the OBX. My wife traveled to OBX and spent nearly a week visiting properties with Heather. She was patient, informative, and most importantly, honest! It was great to have her as our local champion as we negotiated the purchase of our first beach house. During the process she helped secure all local estimates for repairs noted in the home inspection and provided us with points-of-contact for future maintenance and repair work on the property. If you are searching for a realty team that performs at its highest potential, then look no further than Heather and her team. You will not be disappointed!

    Heather was fantastic to work with! We purchased in Avon and live in Virginia so communication was key. She is extremely knowledgeable of the area and helped guide us through the process of buying an investment property which was new to us. We would definitely recommend her and have already given her name to several friends.

    Our Nags Head property was the 15th real estate transaction conducted over the course of 20 years. Suffice to say, we've worked with a multitude of agents all across the country. From the moment we met Heather, she was a standout. She made the entire process seamless. If you are seeking a true professional who possesses that rare trait called integrity, we highly recommend Heather.

    Wow...What an experience we had with Heather Sakers.  If I wrote down everything I had to say about our time Heather Sakers it would be a three book series.  I cannot fully articulate into words just how amazing Heather is.  But I will try... My wife and I have bought many properties over the years.  We decided that we loved the beach so much why not buy a beach house.  We chose Heather because she was ranked top 10 in the Outer Banks and really knew the OBX area. I know that Heather has many clients that she is working with, but I would have put everything I own that my wife and I were her ONLY clients.  There is no way to tell that she was working with other people.  When I texted, called or emailed her with a question or resource need (contractor, electrician, lawyer, etc) she had an answer for me within 10 minutes.  Most times within a minute.  The speed, knowledge, and level of professionalism she provided us is unmatched. UNMATCHED! I am a person that asks a lot of questions and wants to know and understand everything I am getting into (especially when money is involved).  Heather had a detailed, easy to understand answer for me with every question I came at her with.  I called Heather a pit-bull, because once she locks on to something, she makes sure she comes back with it. We had our purchase get pushed back three times because of issues our underwriter had with the inspection and appraisal reports.  It was super frustrating and annoying, but Heather emailed and called everyone involved numerous times a day, everyday until the issues were addressed.  All the while keeping us and the involved parties in the loop every step of the way. The worst communication is no communication, and Heather over communicates.  When your deal is in jeopardy of not going through, that is when people stop communicating.  Heather refused to let the lack of communication happen to my wife and I. She kept on them and would not let up until we all got answers needed to move forward.  That's that pit-bull in her. If you are going to sell or buy a property in the OBX, you would be a fool not to use Heather sakers.  Just the amazing customer service she provides alone.  Not to mention she really cared about our wants, needs, and just us as people.  We just closed on our beach house a week ago and are already looking for another purchase, with Heather of-course. @Heather Sakers - The only thing we can say to you to truly show our gratitude is....Thank you!

    I could not be happier with my experience purchasing a home through Heather Sakers at Coldwell Banker Seaside Realty. From the first phone call, past the closing, she has been incredibly attentive, enthusiastic, and professional, and always treated us like we were a top priority. Her knowledge of the local market and local insight helped extensively with our relocation process. If you want a realtor that is truly working for you, look no further.

    Heather is simply the best in the business. From the moment we contacted her about selling our house she was in constant contact. She gave us great suggestions for staging and moved quickly to get the house listed to take advantage of an aggressive market. Her knowledge of the OBX helped us set a price that was very satisfying without discouraging interest in the house. Once offers began to materialize she was quick point out pros and cons of each offer and helped us determine what was in our best interests. After accepting an offer, she remained committed to making sure we knew every step of the way how things stood and where we were at in the process. There was never a delay in getting answers we needed. She always was available to help us. There is no better agent to use in the OBX.

    Without a doubt, Heather is the absolute best real estate agent I have ever worked with. Professional, knowledgeable, available, helpful, and always on top of every transaction. She understands this market, and knows how to work it to her clients advantage. We have used her for two transactions in the last 2+ years, and will continue to use her services whenever we have a need.

    Heather Sakers was hands down the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. She is professional, knowledgeable, persistent, responsive, and was able to answer any and all questions we had about the process. She made the process of buying a home as simple as possible.

    It was a pleasure to work with Heather as we sold and purchased property at the same time. She made a complicated situation go smoothly and kept our lives stress free. Her local knowledge and attention to detail is a huge plus and she often anticipated our questions and needs. We have worked with Heather on two occasions and would not hesitate to reach out again if the situation came up.

    Trying to purchase a home while not living the in area can be quite challenging, especially during a market that is moving so quickly! Heather is the perfect choice - she is so knowledgeable and responsive and she was instrumental in helping us find our perfect beach home. She was always quick to respond to our many questions and worries, she made sure to get us into see the houses we wanted to see (even when there were limited turnover day hours if they were in a rental program), she kept the process moving along even with a lot of working pieces. We would wholy recommend using Heather if you want a professional, trustworthy, understanding, responsive and experienced agent.

    Heather provided us an outstanding experience in selling our second home. She gave us excellent advice, beautiful listing photos, extra service since we were out of state and couldn't line up services, multiple offers and hand holding when we needed it. We would highly recommend her as your next agent. We are 100% satisfied with our results.

    Heather is AWESOME! As a new vacation home buyer in the Outer Banks, we couldn't have been more thrilled with her professionalism, knowledge of the very fast moving market and her negotiation skills. We encountered some difficulties with a bank that was very unfamiliar with NC laws and the OBX real estate marketplace and with her recommendations, we ultimately changed lenders more than three quarters of the way through the buying process with success! Her emotional intelligence was outstanding each time we needed the seller to extend our contract - three times. As we spend more time in our second home at the beach, we may look for another house in OBX as an investment property and there's only one realtor/broker for us, Heather Sakers. THANK YOU for getting us to the closing table, we are so happy with our ocean front home!

    Heather Sakers deserves the highest praise. Her knowledge, integrity, trustworthiness and negotiation skills make her a phenomenal real estate professional. It is an unprecedented real estate market in the Outer Banks, so competitive on many levels. To say we are thrilled with the property we purchased in Nags Head and feel so fortunate to have found everything we hoped for: price, location, condition, not too big, not too small, The house is just amazing! We credit Heather 100 percent. There were multiple offers on our dream house and she was instrumental in positioning our contract to ultimately being accepted. Heather went above and beyond and got us to closing quickly and without issue. Heather is a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend her for buying or selling real estate in the Outer Banks.

    Heather is the consummate professional. She is very knowledgeable about market specifics, experienced and caring. We felt extremely comfortable with her from the outset. She skillfully guided us through every aspect of the process. Our interactions with her team , Charles and Ann,were always very positive .Very accommodating in scheduling showings and taking care of things at the house while we were away. Always available to answer questions, even when she was away on vacation. We highly recommend her. She is #1 for many good reasons.

    My husband and I live several hours away from Nags Head. It was very important to us to find a trusted agent to work WITH us. Heather has the expertise in the market area and was invaluable. Because we do not live close by, we needed somebody to manage the process. Heather was invaluable in assisting us to find and purchase our new home. We highly recommend Heather.

    Michael & Cheryl gave Heather 5 stars out of 5
    Heather was a joy to work with. She has a deep knowledge of the OBX market and is experienced in working with investors. She is responsive and professional. Her negotiating is top notch - she was even more assertive in her negotiation than we would have been and it ended up making us several thousand $ more. She worked quickly to get a great listing pulled together over just a few days and we received multiple offers over list price by the end of the first weekend our house was on the market. I 100% recommend Heather and her team and will be using her again for future investments in the OBX.

    Heather was wonderful throughout the entire process. She was patient but most importantly, she was honest. Heather did not rush us into buying our home and we bought our home viewing it through FaceTime. We completely relied on her opinion and knowledge. We LOVE our home. She is an all around amazing person and realtor. Highly recommend.

    I recently purchased a condominium in the Outer Banks, NC and had the opportunity to work with Heather as my agent. I was very impressed with both her service and professionalism. As an out-of-state buyer, I had to rely heavily on Heather's knowledge of the property and the community. She fully exceeded my expectations on both! She always responded to my requests and needs in an expeditious fashion, never letting me linger throughout the purchasing process. She also suggested many professional resources that I could contact to help me maintain my property after purchase. Throughout the process, I always felt that she had my best interest front-of-mind, even though she also represented the seller. I would definitely use Heather again as my either, whether buying or selling a property in the Outer Banks!

    We live in Colorado, and the property Heather sold for us was in the Outer Banks. She quickly found a buyer, and the entire transaction was handled with me here and she there. She came highly recommended by an appraiser we hired off the web, and boy did she live up to that recommendation. When there was something I needed to do or sign electronically, she let me know immediately. When I texted, called or e-mailed her, I received, without exception, very timely responses. The entire process could not have been easier. There's a reason she's been in the top 1% of all OBX selling agents for 10 Years. Thank you Heather!

    We highly recommend Heather to anyone searching for a home or piece of land here in the OBX. She is an expert in her field. Knowledgeable about the local real estate landscape. She has worked with us for over a 2 1/2 year period searching for a home vs a lot. She gets to know you and anticipates your wants. She gets to know you so well she actually asked us why we wanted to look at a particular home. We insisted and she was right! She is responsive to all questions no matter how many and knows exactly who to call to get the answers. She has been successful in helping us purchase a lot! We are so grateful and thankful to Heather for taking the time to help us with this adventure. We look forward to working with Heather again in the near future to sell our present home.

    Great realtor! As our buyer's agent, Heather took ownership of the entire process from the showing till closing, keeping us fully informed. She scheduled numerous inspections and kept the ball rolling through negotiations and other potential showstoppers that popped up along the way. She is knowledgeable and experienced and amazingly on top of everything with great communication. We highly recommend her.

    Heather is AMAZING. We interviewed 3 realtors and selected her. She came very prepared for our meetings with all the data on comps, new builds, and relative pricing guidance and was extremely accommodating - as this was the first house we sold so we had more questions than normal. She understood our needs, what we were trying to achieve and she did not push us in any direction, but gave sounds advice on how to reach our goals most effectively- pricing included. She even helped us leverage her network to find contractors for the house repairs to be completed quickly (a pain point of ours in the OBX). Where we were floored though was in the marketing- the views, video, and digital presentation of the house were stunning. In just a few days, we had multiple competing offers on the house, which put us in a strong negotiating position. I was so thankful for her expertise and highly recommend her. Thanks, Heather!

    Recently we had the pleasure of working with Heather Sakers as we bought a new home. We had never had the pleasure of working with her previously, but after trying to contact a different agent a few times to no avail, we cold-called Heather about a home we were interested in. This was during the height of the COVID crisis when you could not even get into the OBX to look at homes. Heather was very responsive and did several virtual home walkthroughs for us. We didn't ultimately buy the first homes we looked at, but we did keep exploring and Heater proved to be a go-to resource from beginning to end. We found her to be knowledgeable and responsive throughout each step of the process. Heather has earned our highest recommendation!

She was a pleasure to work with, stayed on top of all the details, and kept us informed every step of the way. Her marketing of our home was superb, and led to amazing showing traffic the first few days and multiple competitive offers quickly. She was then able to steer us through our options right up until closing. I highly recommend her if you're buying or selling anywhere on the Outer Banks!

    Heather knows EVERYTHING Outer Banks! She is knowledgeable, patient, professional but at the same time I felt like I could talk to her like my oldest best friend. She pushed to get us the best deal possible and land our own piece of OBX heaven. My absolute favorite thing about Heather being our agent is her communication. She is so good at being responsive in a timely manor and that means the world to an anxious buyer.

    Heather was referred to me by a family friend to serve as our agent for the sale of our family vacation home in the Outer Banks. Heather provided superior service throughout the sales process including guidance on the listing, suggestions on home improvements to maximize the price, securing contractors to do work, and ultimately in securing an offer and managing the closing process seamlessly. Her service was particularly valuable given my location nearly 6 hours away and a very business work/travel schedule. I would enthusiastically recommend Heather as the top choice for your real estate professional needs.

    Heather is very professional and knowledgeable of the OBX real estate market. We chose her to take over the sale of our home in Martin's point. She exhibited a patient and calm approach on all aspects of the selling process. She was never pushy on any decisions to be made. She put our minds at ease when our closing happen right during Hurricane Dorian. Our communications with Heather from questions and concerns were answered promptly even before and after she gave birth to their new baby. We would recommend her highly to anyone who is buying or selling at the Outer Banks.

    Heather was amazing, beginning to end. Her knowledge of the area and market was so helpful in pricing my home. She gave me great suggestions on things I could do to improve the appearance of my home. Anytime I had questions or needed anything she was super responsive. When I received a contract, she was in labor. She communicated throughout the whole process from her hospital bed, she didn't miss a beat! Her negotiation skills and knowledge of contracts was a life saver when receiving offers. She is all about her customers, not a commission. I would highly recommend her to anyone and am so blessed to have had her on my side. 5 star agent!

    Heather is professional, knowledgeable and simply amazing. We relocated here two years ago and had a few bad experiences in our home search. As soon as we met Heather at a soccer game we knew she was the right fit for us. Our budget wasn't huge but she never discourage us and was patient with all our questions which she always had the answers to or had them within a few hours. Heather worked hard to keep us on budget and within our time frame as well as having all our home needs met. I had 8 years real estate experience in VA and worked with 100s of agents, I can say with complete confidence that Heather is the highest ranking agent on my list! Heather Sakers goes above and beyond and will guide you through every step of the way.

    Hard working and always available. As she is always updating us on property available in the area we were able to find a diamond in the rough and make an offer quickly. Although the loan proved difficult, Heather's dedication and knowledge of the process left us feeling confident that we had the right person on the job. Not to mention that she was able to sell our condo in three days for asking price! Great job and we wouldn't use anyone else when buying or selling in the future. Sakers sells!

    Heather was a phenomenal agent that went above and beyond to exceed our expectations. We lived multiple hours away and were not knowledgeable about many of the local practices and current market and she not only educated us but gave great professional opinions. Once we got into the negation stage she was clearly committed to our best interest, encouragingbus to walk away if the sellers didn't come back appropriately. We appreciated this greatly and it showed her loyalty. Extremely easy to reach by phone/text/email and always followed up. We will definitely use her for any future purchases/sales in OBX. Her communication and knowledge really set her apart from the rest, and we have purchased many homes across the country, you will not be disappointed!

    We knew leaving our home of 23 years on the Outer Banks would be a more than stressful time for us. Our family, friends, and home church (Church of The Outer Banks) would all be 900 miles away when we committed to a new adventure in Englewood, Florida. Our true salvation to make this process as stress free and timely as possible was to choose a professional local real estate agent. And that's where Heather Sakers from Coldwell Bankers truly became our saving grace. Thru her professional and expert approach at marketing skills and faced with the daunting task of prepping our home for best dollar value, (which she somehow managed to do), she sold our home in record time. With Heather at the helm, our transition to uncharted territory was met way beyond our expectations. Not only did she keep us informed every step of the way, but she helped coordinate our move so that we were able to close on our home in NC on a Monday, and close on our home in Florida 2 days later, (what we thought was going to be and should have been an impossible task) ! Heather knows the real estate business but most of all, she is a people person. We know many folks (including family and friends) that have worked with her and will confirm her commitment to do what is right for you. Without a moments hesitation my wife and I highly and very proudly recommend Heather as your agent. Not only will she work steadfast on your behalf in a professional manner but you will have a true lifetime friend.We would surely give her more stars if available !!! All we can say is "Heather, ThankYou,ThankYou,ThankYou !!! YOU ARE THE BEST !!!!! Bob and Gret

    We not only sold our Duck home promptly,it was without stress thanks to Heather. The first time we sat down with Heather, we met for two hours discussing the house itself and the market in detail. She came completely prepared with market statistics and her pricing of the house was spot on. Heater showed a great sense for the market and the strengths and weaknesses of the house, Heather is professional, responsive, and firm when she has to be, She was a real pleasure to work with. I unconditionally recommend Heather to anyone selling a home on the OBX.

    Heather was the real estate agent for our sale of a house in the Sanderling community of Duck, NC. She was outstanding. Heather has a lot of experience and is very knowledgeable about Outer Banks real estate. She was thorough and it was easy to work with her. Heather responded promptly to any of my questions, replying during the day or night. I would recommend Heather to any potential buyer/seller.

    Heather was recommended to us and we couldn't be happier. She was a pleasure to work with. Was always on top of things and when she needed to research a question we had, she was usually back in less than a day with a response. Her knowledge of the business process was amazing. Our closing was delayed due to Hurricane Florence and she handled everything beautifully including getting us in the following week to close. I would recommend her to anyone that I know.

    Heather did a great job getting the word out about our home with wonderful photos and informative sales materials. She was also a pleasure to deal with - friendly, knowledgeable, approachable, professional, honest. Ours was not an easy sale in a tight market at our price point, but Heather's determination successfully won out. We enjoyed working with Heather and recommend her to others.

    I have had the pleasure in working with Heather three times in 5 years. I have purchased a home, sold a home and purchased again. During those stressful times I knew I had a realtor that was reliable, honest and driven. Heather was with me during the entire process to answer questions and guide me to achieve my goal. Phone calls were answered almost immediately and if I left a message they were returned ASAP. She took the worry from me and made the process as smooth as possible. Even though my journey is complete, I know I can call Heather anytime with a question and she would be there to answer. Heather is a kind, genuine and very knowledgeable realtor /friend whom I would unequivocally recommend to anyone.

    Heather was fantastic in assessing the value of the house in the market, both at initial listing and later when the sales price needed adjustment. She is very responsive and responds via email or text very quickly. As we finally received an offer, she was a big help working through a few issues at closing (unresolved lien from a decade ago). Highly recommend.

    Heather is one of the better residential realtors I have dealt with in my many buys and sells. Hard to find one who is truly honest...for the good or bad. Would highly recommend using Heather again on another purchase or sell.

    My husband and I recently used Heather to search for and buy a home. I can not speak highly enough about her and her skill set. Her attention to detail, networking skills, and knowledge of trends in the Outer Banks are what won us over. We had interviewed several agents and did our research (lots!) on agents in the area, before picking her and are so happy that we did. We would, and have, recommend her to anyone. She conducts herself with the highest of integrity, gives sound advice, doesn’t procrastinate and knows the market very well. Her networking abilities are superb. We highly recommend her and would use her again in a heart beat.

    We have been working with Heather for over ten years. We are now of our 3rd house, and could not be happier with Heather representing us. She is the consummate professional and is full of wisdom, creativity and honesty. She is an incredible resource - helping with all of the details related to purchasing a beach house. Home buying can be a complicated process, and the beach has complexities specific to the area - it matters who you chose to represent you, especially when working from a distance. With Heather, you will be in good hands and will have chosen the best on the beach!

    Heather was extremely valuable to us as we sold a home on the Outer Banks. Her extensive knowledge of the market, excellent communication skills, and responsiveness to all of our questions made this process less stressful, giving us much peace of mind. Her marketing skills, attention to detail, accurate advice, and encouragement were exceptional. We would happily recommend Heather to anyone in the real estate market and look forward to working with her again when we consider a purchase on the Outer Banks.

    Quite simply, Heather is the best real estate professional we have ever been associated with. Her attention to detail, responsiveness, experience, and knowledge of the Outer Banks market made her an absolute pleasure to work with. She kept us informed of all showings and general interest in our home regularly, as well as answered all of our questions in a very timely fashion. This particular sale was a short sale and Heather was able to direct us to the proper professionals to handle that portion of the transaction with great efficiency and success. If a rating greater than 5 was available, I’d give it to Heather!

    Heather went above and beyond for us! We were selling our home and looking for a new home at the same time, and Heather was our agent for both. As far as selling ours, Heather took great pictures, advertised really well, and gave great advice as far as staging/list price/negotiations. Where I was really impressed, however, was on the buying side. Heather always made time to show us whatever home we were infatuated with at the moment - usually same day! :) And she would always point out things we weren't necessarily considering during our walkthroughs - the good and the bad. She took time to understand our needs and wants as a family and really wanted to find a house that fit us perfectly. When we were considering renovations, she lined up contractors and designers to meet with us within days. She rolled with our ever-changing plans like a pro and didn't blink an eye. We are so happy with our sale and ecstatic in our new home. If you want a realtor who is dedicated to YOU, you can definitely trust Heather!

    Heather was so incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. We were looking for a second home/rental property on the beach. Heather took the time to fully understand what exactly we were looking for and what was important to us. She then sent us lots of options to start with, and she was willing to go see as many houses as we needed to until we found the right one. Then once we made our decision, Heather went above and beyond helping with everything we needed to do for inspections and financing. We are so happy with the decision we made and absolutely love the house. Heather truly went way beyond my expectations and I will highly recommend her to anyone looking for a house in the area.

    Heather is the most knowledgeable and thorough realtor I have ever met. She was very informative every step of the way as we made our first purchase in OBX. Heather went way above and beyond with all of her guidance and many contacts she gave us. In the end, we settled on a great home at a great value and this wouldn't have happened without Heather. She is very organized and there was never any pressure along the way. I highly recommend Heather!

    Heather recently served both as the buying and selling agent in the purchase of our new beach home. While I did have some reservations about a potentially mixed allegiance, Heather dispelled all of those concerns with her unbiased disclosure of information and stellar customer service. The majority of our conversations were handled remotely, but access to her was as if she was in the next room. Heather was very busy, however she was extremely responsive and gave me her full attention when we connected. While I know she had many clients, she had a way of making us feel we were her only customer. In addition to her responsiveness and customer care, her information was timely and accurate. She set appropriate expectations and made the entire process as seamless and stress free as possible. Heather Sakers is a true Real Estate Professional whom I would highly recommend to handle your real estate needs

    Heather was referred to us by our neighbor in Northern Virginia who had also purchased a vacation/second home in Corolla with her. Heather was fantastic and her knowledge and familiarity with the market in the Outer Banks unmatched. As we are not local to the OBX, we depended on her to provide guidance about possible homes, the market, appropriate offers and counter offers and to help us through the inspection and closing processes. Heather was fantastic - responsive, attentive, knowledgeable and above all, a pleasure to work with. We would refer her services to anyone and will certainly enlist her for future transactions!

    I ran into Heather during an initial whim to look at a home (Devonshire Place) in the OBX area to call a family owned place for our family to use during the future years, it’s something we have wanted for many years since the family has been renting homes in the area at least twice a year. Initially I was not as familiar with the differences in a single family condo and standalone house but with Heather's help and knowledgeable guidance I learned a lot. Then began the task of narrowing down a search for something that would fit the family needs from size, location and cost. We went back and forth for many months close to year before we settled down on the area and what the costs would be. So in the last month we were able to make a dream come true with Heather's help in acquiring a home in the Corolla area. She also guided us through lots of the red tape (paperwork) and simple things as local companies to get furniture and insurance from, this I think made life simpler and less stressful f through this whole process of buying a home in the OBX. Heather also would return calls and emails at all times of the days as I and the family had them and was always helpful and working with us when needed to make showing times work for us since we are not locals to the area.

    Working with Heather to purchase my vacation rental property was a phenomenal experience, even with me being out if town. Heather was very responsive and thought of lots of little ways to keep me abreast of the progress as my home was being built. She frequently sent updates and pictures. Heather kept me informed of every step in the process in a timely manner. Whenever I left Heather a message, she returned calls very quickly. Whenever we ran into glitches, Heather quickly proposed creative, amenable solutions. Heather's use of technology made the process as painless as possible for me as I purchased my home from a distance. Overall, it such a great experience that I referred friends to Heather and they are buying a property through her as well!

    Oh my goodness where do we begin? Heather Sakers was absolutely wonderful to work with! We interviewed a couple of realtors to see if they would be a good fit for us, and after meeting with Heather, I knew she was exactly what we needed. My husband is active duty military, so we were being transferred out of state. This was a bittersweet process for us, we loved our first home, completely remodeling it ourselves and pouring so much love into this home. Heather understood this and went above and beyond for us. Her experience speaks volumes and her knowledge of the Outer Banks housing market was spot on. She knew exactly where to price our home and the type of potential homeowner that would love our home. We listed, received an offer and closed on our home in two months. Heather, thank you for holding our hands through this process. You were such a blessing to us! Sincerely, Kristin & Jeremiah Strombeck

    On our initial meeting with Heather Sakers, we knew we were about to work with someone very special. From the onset, Heather presented herself as a true professional. It was obvious that Heather was very passionate about helping her clients find "the right" home. She was courteous and sincere. From the onset, the relationship we developed with Heather was built on a foundation of respect and trust. Heather presented herself as engaging but not obtrusive. Her knowledge of the local real estate market was uncanny. We expressed to her what kind of property we were interested in. Without hesitation, she was able to provide us with an accurate, well-thought-out list of such properties. Heather's passion in helping others is commendable. Her outstanding work ethic is admirable. Her dedicated partnership with local contractors is seldom seen. She is able to build an alliance between the client, contractor and community (Closing Specialists, Home Owners Association, Rental Company, Utility Companies, home furnishings contacts, etc). Heather has tremendous honesty and integrity; she will always "do the right thing." She is very tenacious and always timely. Heather's expansive knowledge of the real estate process enabled her to provide insight and options that we would have never considered in our quest to purchase a home. As a result, Heather saved us a tremendous amount of time and money. As we would present Heather with, what seemed like, a never-ending list of questions, from contract negotiations to closing fees, she was always very quick to respond with detailed accurate answers. After closing, Heather will never abandon a client. Even though we have closed on the property, Heather continues to ensure that any remaining issues/questions we have are promptly resolved. Over the last 35 years I have been involved with numerous real estate transactions.This real estate transaction led by Heather Sakers has, by far, been the smoothest, most professional, most complete and most enjoyable real estate venture I have ever participated in. Thank you Heather! You rock!

    From putting the house on the market to eventually selling the house, Heather was absolutely wonderful to work with. She consistently provided feedback on the status and activity, or lack of activity at times, and solutions to assist in helping us get the best offer for our house. When we did receive an offer, she worked with us every step of the way, and took on responsibiltes to help us through the process while we were out of the country. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone selling or buying a home, she is an outstanding agent!

    Heather was extremely professional and understands the OBX market. She priced our house perfectly. We felt very comfortable with the listing price. She was always accessible for questions when we needed a little extra help (even on vacation). I would recommend that before you sign with any realtor, getting a second option from Heather Sakers! She helped get our house sold quickly and for the full asking price!!!

    Heather was an amazing real estate agent to work with from the very beginning. She provided documented information in helping us determine our best sales price and supported it with her expert opinion. She was always prompt with her return phone calls and she always did what she said she would do. She handled the negotiation, home inspection and closing transaction with precision and made sure we were very informed each step of the way. I am a home builder in Richmond, VA and my wife is a real estate broker and we were both very, very satisfied with working with Heather. We would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying/selling their home in the OBX. Heather is a real professional!

    Heather is an outstanding agent. This was our first home purchase in the OBX. We have never dealt with flood zones before and Heather was very knowledgeable and helpful.

We feel Heather is not only our agent but also a friend. We highly recommend Heather.

She was honest, smart, insightful, responsive, professional, dedicated and resourceful. She also had a great network of honest and reasonable craftsmen who were awesome.

    Heather worked for me and my husband late last summer on the purchase of a wonderful home in Nags Head. She represented us and the seller as a dual agent and we couldn't have been happier with her fairness, promptness, knowledge of the area and her relentless attitude of getting things done. We are a very busy couple who live in another state and the seller had already moved away so she effectively handled all the details of the sale for everyone and made the entire process as smooth as possible for all. We couldn't have been more satisfied!

    Heather Sakers worked with us for two years by showing various properties and updating new listings. Heather was always available to meet our schedule with a pleasant and encouraging attitude. Heather continued to guide us with her extensive knowledge of the local real estate market. Her response time was easily within the same day as any of our questions. Heather is intuitive, honest, and a genuine professional while being a very friendly person. It was because of her attention to the details of our property bid and her amazing negotiating skills, that we are now owners of an Outer Banks property. Heather is completely dedicated to helping her clients find the home of their dreams. We would definitely recommend Heather Sakers for any of your real estate needs.

    How To Create An Inviting Laundry Room

    We can all agree that doing laundry is probably not the way you want to spend the day off. This disdain may even make your laundry room one of your least favorite rooms in your house. However, just because laundry can be an arduous task doesn't mean your laundry room has to be an unwelcoming, dark space full of clutter. In fact, a well-organized space can actually make you feel more focused and productive. A bright, clean space can even put you in a better headspace to complete your least favori...
