  • "Very professional. Quite a contrast with the previous Realtor we had dealt with." Joseph Frederick

  • "The selection of a realtor is difficult for many reasons.  The first reason is that there are so many choices.  We all have friends who are in the real estate business.  How do we choose one over another?  In my mind, this is a serious matter because of the size of the investment.  My first criteria was that you needed to choose a realtor who was associated with a well known respected agency.  This is what led me initially to JR Wood.  The choice of the individual realtor was much more difficult.  I believe there are professional realtors who take their career seriously and others who want a part time career.  I believe that you should only work with a professional.  My second criteria was to work with someone who understood me.  I was selling a large home and purchasing a smaller home.  I understood that the process could be time consuming.  I wanted to work with someone who viewed the process as a partnership.  I felt that I wanted to be part of a team.  Once the sale was accomplished, the purchase of the new home was more complicated.  There are so many choices.  The key for me was to select a realtor that understood my needs.  I didn't want to waste time looking at hundreds of homes that didn't meet those needs.  I wanted to continue that same partnership where I would communicate my needs and my realtor executed on that plan. Once I chose Heidi, the entire experience could not have gone any smoother.  We worked together as a team to accomplish the sale of my home.  Heidi offered suggestions on staging my home, conducted a proper amount of open houses and took charge of the process.  She made a very difficult process seem easy.  The sale met my goals and we moved on to buying a new home.  I had some very particular criteria for the new home.  I was patient and didn't feel the need to move quickly.  Heidi never pressured me into looking at homes.  However, when she found the right house, she was very confident that my goals would be achieved.  I am now settled in my new home.  I appreciated Heidi's support and friendship during the process.  It is easy to see why Heidi has so many repeat customers.  Once you have found a professional, it is hard to settle for less." - Tom Sukay

  • "Just wanted let you know how much we appreciated working with you over the last 10 months.  The sale of the house has lifted a heavy burden on my sister and me but it is with a sad ending to 30 years of visiting Naples and the final physical closure of my parents lives.Thank you for all your advice and help." - Susan Maynard
  • "Heidi Varsames made our condominium purchase a real pleasure. We were immediately taken by her personality and professionalism. Her pleasant, outgoing nature made our time with her actually fun. Her appearance and the J.R. Wood milieu definitely spoke business. She was always quickly available whether the question was facts or furniture. Heidi was always prepared or knew where to get the information. She guided us into a price range that met our needs and comfort level and walked us through bidding, purchase and closing in a seamless manner. Her recommendations for insurance and title agents were (almost) as good as she. Heidi also went the extra mile when a last minute problem arose. We strongly recommend her to any buyer or seller. " -  Joe and Fran Frederick
  • "We worked with Heidi to find our new home and she was a huge asset in helping us make our decision.   She understood exactly what we were looking for and did her homework on houses and communities that fit for us.    Heidi brought us many options and we completely trusted her opinion.   Always upbeat and fun, her patience, resilience and superior knowledge brought us to the home we wanted.   Heidi has been there with us from start to finish and I know if we have any questions about the process or area she is a phone call away.   Heidi has greatly exceeded all our expectations!" - Kathleen and Jim Prosper
  • "My fiancé and I began looking for a house in January 2015. We spent countless hours searching Trulia, Zillow, Craigslist, you name it. We were introduced to Heidi and in the first day I started receiving listings that matched our exact criteria. When we found our dream house Heidi made sure to do everything she could for us to get it. We ran into loan issues, insurance issues, and all sorts of issues in trying to get this house. Heidi fought for us every step of the way to ensure this would be our first family home. We couldn't have done it without her willingness to help ( even when she was on vacation) she pulled the deal together and we closed on July 26th! We would recommend Heidi to anyone looking for a home." - Meaghan O'Brien
  • "At all times Heidi Varsames was professional, pleasant, well informed with regard to the history and current market of Naples and Bonita Springs area and beyond and, an excellent listener. She heard our needs and concerns and found prpoerties to match. Heidi provided in person service as well as service on line after hours via John R. Woods up to date computer data service. Heidi came prepared for our day of viewings with all the information we needed to assess each property we were to visit." - Lynn Barber
