"Heather is the most thoughtful, thorough and caring agent you could ask for. Her focus is finding you the right home not just a house & so she really listens to your wants, needs and often non-verbal cues to help you find that home. She's a champion on your behalf through all facets of the process, is very communicative and goes above and beyond to help you be as comfortable as possible during what is a pretty stressful endeavor in general. I couldn't recommend her enough and if we or anyone we know ever has a real estate need in the future, she will be the person we call and recommend." - Chris & Hana, Folsom
"Heather did an outstanding job as our Realtor - she helped us buy our first house! As first-time homebuyers, the home buying process seemed complicated. Not only did Heather's warmth and wit put us at ease, she helped us to feel excited and empowered in our options. We greatly appreciated her insight and knowledgeable perspective in navigating complicated negotiations. Heather advocated for us throughout the process and strived at all times to make sure we found the RIGHT house for our family, and she did! We couldn't be happier! Cannot recommend her enough!" - Tessa & Beau, Orangevale
"Heather is an amazing realtor and I would absolutely recommend anyone looking to buy or sell a house to work with her.
After a scary incident occurred, my husband and I wanted to sell our house quickly and move our family. Although I was highly emotional when I reached out to Heather, she was very empathetic to our situation, but every bit the professional. Heather was responsive and attentive through the whole process of selling our house and buying our next one. And I have to mention that this was all happening during the holidays. Heather never hesitated to make herself available to us for whatever we needed.
We never felt like we were just another client for Heather, she treated us like family and we are so grateful to have gone through this process with her in our corner." - Rebeca & Jonathan, Fair Oaks
"Heather is an outstanding realtor who puts her clients first. We have purchased two homes with her representation and could not have asked for a better agent. She is on top of each step in the home buying process and is always available for questions. She has gone out of her way several times to show us homes and truly wanted to find the best fit for us, not just to close a deal. Her team at Legacy Properties ensured a smooth transaction each time. We can't say enough good things about her!
Heather sold my husband our first house when he moved to Sacramento 2 years ago. Because of the amazing work she had done for our first home, we wanted to work with her again for our second. Heather is always on top of everything, very professional, and provides valuable advice. She explains every step and always keeps us updated. I enjoyed working with her and can't thank her enough for all that she's done!" - Sheng & Jessica, Carmichael
"We are grateful to have worked with Heather when we sold our home and purchased our new one. Heather was very helpful in walking us through the process step by step in a way we could easily understand. She was generous with her time and was readily available to answer all of our calls and questions (at all times of the day!)
Heather went above and beyond to help get our house ready to go to market, including hiring a great photographer and getting the word out on all her social media channels. I can't say enough about her professionalism, her care for her clients, and the joy and humor she brings to the home buying and selling processes. I highly recommend Heather Downey if you are looking for a great real estate agent!" - Brian & Christie, Sacramento
"We can't say enough good things about our experience with Heather. Our house hunt took place under unusually difficult circumstances; as recent transplants, we moved to Sacramento in the midst of the pandemic to find an unbelievably competitive housing market. Heather was our unflappable guide through bidding wars and successful negotiations. Against all odds, we ended up in a property that ticked all our original boxes and added amenities we had not even considered. From the moment we met her, we were struck by Heather's combination of genuine friendliness, consistent responsiveness and straight-forward professionalism. We are so lucky to have been able to work with her." - Andy & Betsy, Sacramento
"We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor! I appreciate Heather’s effort in finding out as much information as possible about each home we looked at. Her insight helped us make a competitive offer that got us into our first home! Being a first time home buyer is definitely intimidating, but Heather helped us through each step of the process. She genuinely wanted us to find the right place. There was no sense of being rushed or pressured like we experienced with previous agents. When we’re in the market for our second home, we will be calling Heather!" - Ellen & Camilo, Sacramento
"My husband and I were so fortunate to work with Heather during our first home buying experience! She was quick to respond to our many questions via text/email. Being that everything was new to us, she explained our options and the process well so we could understand. We like that she was straightforward as well as a delight to work with. Being that we were looking to buy a home fast, she really hustled to make it happen and coordinated everything well. She sent us updates to keep us posted through the entire process. We highly recommend her!" - Josh & Christina, Sacramento
"As first time home buyers and being relatively new to Sacramento, we are thrilled we worked with Heather Downey. From the beginning, Heather was an excellent communicator, taking the time to explain the entire home buying experience without overwhelming us. She answered all of our questions promptly and kept us in the loop throughout the whole process. With the restrictions created by COVID-19, Heather was respectful and patient. She listened carefully to what we were looking for and truly cared about us and our happiness in finding our new home. We will be recommending Heather to everyone in the future, because she is simply the best." - Matt & Julie, Sacramento
"Heather seems to have an uncanny ability to be everything all at once. Need someone to look for your dream house? She'll scour the listings day after day for you. Need someone to make sense of this complex process? She'll guide you through every part with intelligence, patience, and a great attitude. Need someone who keeps in regular communication? Need someone to play hardball in negotiating with a seller? Don't let the kind smile fool you, she'll get in there and advocate for you with everything she has and get results. When we started looking for homes, Heather told us that this is supposed to be a fun process and I could not fathom how it could be. Somewhere along the line she changed it up on us and she made it exactly that. We now get to welcome our first child in a home that is everything we hoped for and it is thanks to Heather's dedication, knowledge, and kindness, and just a dash of Harry Potter references. Do not hesitate to let her be this amazing person on your behalf!" - Angel & Lucy, Sacramento
"Heather is incredible. She made the process low stress. She is super organized and an excellent communicator. She puts in the work! You can tell she's in the business to help people and not just push a deal - any deal - through. My favorite thing about her style is that she'll make recommendations on how to approach things with the seller/listing agent but will ultimately defer to you on how to handle. She's direct - absolutely no BS. She will be an excellent advocate for you!" - Kenny O., Sacramento
"Heather was amazing through the entire home buying process. Any time I needed her she would make herself available to me. She bent over backwards to get things done and I couldn't have asked for a better Realtor. Buying a home is not an easy process, but Heather definitely made the process a lot easier and stress free. Even after purchasing my home she made herself available to help me with questions and concerns I had. I would 100% recommend using Heather if you're interested in finding your next home. Thank you Heather!" - Ryan C., Citrus Heights
Heather is an outstanding Realtor! I had a wonderful experience working with her. She has a vast amount of real estate knowledge. She gave me her full support and advocated for me during the difficult and stressful time of house hunting and purchasing a home as a single woman. She was extremely prompt with texts and emails and was available at all times to help me and/or answer my questions. I appreciated her communicating to me what I could expect and explaining everything that is involved in the home buying process. Heather is an overall incredible person and Realtor. I felt like Heather always had my back. - Betsy C., West Sacramento
I had the privilege of working with Heather to purchase my first home in Sacramento. She patiently explained each step of the home buying process and ultimately helped me find the perfect home. I was very impressed with her attention to detail and timeliness throughout our interactions. Her extensive knowledge of various neighborhoods within the greater Sacramento area helped me to identify and negotiate a great home at an amazing price. She is extremely professional, honest, and friendly. I look forward to working with her again in future real estate ventures! - Sheng M., Sacramento
The idea of buying our first home brought excitement as well as bewilderment. The process seemed overwhelming and foreign. Heather was there for us. Teaching us one step at a time. Spending more time and effort than I would have ever expected from an agent. She answered calls and texts for every small questions. She took the time to explain the big things. On top of all that, Heather has a "je ne sais quoi" about her. She is able to bridge the gap between buyers and sellers that can sometimes be mysterious. Her ability to connect with all the parties involved has a value you cannot put a price on. After going through the home buying process with her I feel empowered and knowledgeable, and I feel like I am more than just a client. Heather and her family have become part of our family now. Thanks to her, we have a forever home. - Serena & Mark L., Sacramento
Heather was so great to work with!!! She set my expectations on the type of home I was qualified to purchase, and then helped to educate me on the homes we viewed. Once we found a home that checked all the boxes, Heather was ON IT!! Also, she helped to guide me thru the purchasing steps and helped to set my "timing" expectations as well. Heather's expertise and knowledge of the real estate world made my home buying experience a pleasure. I am only sorry I am not able to buy more!! - Mary Ann M., Sacramento
Having Heather as our Realtor was an absolute pleasure and a breeze. As we were looking for a home in Sacramento while living in Southern California, we needed someone who could be our boots on the ground and do all the leg work for us, which is exactly what Heather did. She attended Open Houses, booked private home viewings, took countless videos of homes and neighborhoods, and talked to neighbors to make our out of town home buying experience as personal as possible. When we were able to visit for in-person home tours, we found an amazing home, and Heather helped put our complex offer together in an amazingly quick turnaround time. Heather is always quick to respond, clearly defines each step of the home buying process, and truly loves seeing people find their homes! If we ever have any real estate needs in the future, we will definitely be working with Heather, and will be recommending her to everyone! - Nick & Hawley A., Sacramento
