Heather is the absolute best. Extremely knowledgable, especially in this crazy market

Christopher & Mary Banks

My husband and I completely fell in love with a home that came on the market and quickly decided to reach out to someone to provide us options with selling our home and purchasing a new one. With the help of Zillow, they recommended Heather to us. I was completely blown away with how quick she contacted us and dedicated so much time to making things happen for us. The process from putting our home on the market, purchasing a new home and scheduling both closings went so smoothly (and quickly). We cannot thank Heather enough for everything that she has done to make our dreams come true. She honestly is the best, kindest, funniest, and organized realtor we could have ever met. We really couldn’t have done this process with her by our side the entire time!! Always will recommend her for any of our friends or family that decide to purchase a home in the future! Thanks again Heather!!

Nathan and Danielle Gardner

Working with Heather Sawyer was great! She was very patient with my girlfriend and I as we ventured through our first home buying experience. We felt like we had a expert with us the entire process. Definitely would recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor!

Casey Adler

My husband and I recently sold our house,. Thanks to Heather's expertise and guidance, we were able to complete this daunting task in a short amount of time. Heather was there for us the whole way and always there when we needed her. Because of her many years of experience, she was able to guide us through difficult decisions, She provided us with excellent suggestions to help stage our home and leveraged her broad network to find us an electrician at the last minute. The best part about working with Heather, is that she understands selling a house is not just a financial transaction, it's an emotional experience. Heather always seems to know how to lift your spirits when challenges arise and how to calm your anxiety when you are feeling overwhelmed. We highly recommend Heather for all of your realty needs.

If we could give more stars we would. My husband and I were both military and have moved A LOT, and Heather is the absolute best real estate agent we have EVER worked with. She was an absolute blessing to find!!! Incredibly helpful, ALWAYS available, conveniently flexible!!! We went through her to purchase and sell our home and wish we could keep her in our pocket forever!!! She is genuine, truthful, and will offer her professional opinion with any questions you present to her. She makes the buying and selling process incredibly stress-free and enjoyable. There are just too many amazing qualities to her real-estate knowledge and, to our experience to write. Like I said, if we could keep her in our pocket for every buying and selling opportunity we have, we would!!!

Stefanie and Jerry

My husband and I have been working with Heather for three years in what led up to the worst buyers market in years. Heather was always positive but realistic. She is so easy to connect with and really understood the needs of our family when looking for a home. Throughout the several year process, Heather was consistently available and responsive to each of our inquiries. When we found the house we wanted, in a very fast and competitive market, Heather moved quickly. As first time home buyers, she was very informative about the process, reassuring, and recommended helpful attorneys and contractors. We cannot recommend Heather highly enough!! We feel so thankful for the experience working with her and appreciated her ability to able to make a stressful process so smooth. After we closed on our house, she was even kind enough to get us a gift! We are happy to now call her a friend. Should you choose to work with Heather, you won’t regret it.

Heather, Thank you so much for your guidance and support throughout this process.  I always enjoy working with you.  You truly are amazing at what you do.Love,Melissa

Dear Heather,We want to tell you how nice it was to deal with you during the sale of our Mystic home.  You were professional in all your dealings with us and with potential buyers.  Thank you for all your effort.  As you know our lovely home sold, thanks to you.  We feel that we left a part of our soul behind after 45 years of living in a great house in the lovely town of Mystic.  Good luck in your bright future.  We see only the best.  Fondly,ML & P H.

My wife and I were in a bind and needed a place for my father ASAP. Heather was not only super responsive but also sensitive to the specific needs of our family.  She helped us quickly find the perfect place, negotiate an offer and close on the place (including all the things that go along with that) in record time.  I cannot say enought great things abouther and I would highly, highly recommend her services.  It's like being sent an angel.

Heather was awesome to work with!  We loved the first house she showed us, and she helped us put together the perfect offer so that we stood out and got the house!  Super respnsive and seriously made the process so easy as a first time homebuyer.  Thanks, Heather!

I just bought my house, Heather helped me through the whole process and really was part of the team.  She got me all th einformation I needed and really made the first time home buying process a breeze.  She is great and very personalble!!!

Christian Kiraly

I started my home search for something closer to my job.  I had called about one house and was referred to an agent on the for sale sign.  Ther first agent, forget it, unprofessional, pushy and not even worth pursuing the house.  I called on another house shortly after and was put in touch with Heather Sawyer.  Heather contacted me almost immediately.  She was personable, had professionalism knowledge of the market and took my needs seriously.  Since COVID hit, the market was ridiculous with over bids and houses selling faster than the supply.  Heather always got me into showings no matter what time and as fast as she could!  After several offers that were well over asking and I was outbid, I was becoming discouraged.  Not Heather, she kept working at it even when I was getting disgusted.  Heather then contacted me and said she knew of a house that was perfect for my needs and got me into a showing immediately.  Shorter versio is that her tireless efforts got me a home that I am very happpy with.  Without her help I would probably still be looking.  Over the past few years, I have dealt with several real estate agents and non have come close to Heather's client commitmnet.  She is a true professional and an asset to her Agency.  I still contact her when I need advice on a contractor or just have a question.  I'm never rushed or leave feeling like I was a bother.  I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a top notch real estate agent in the area. Five stars across the board.

Robert Paciotti, HomeSnap Review

Heather is an amazing realtor to work with and goes above and beyond for her clients.  Heather was lways prompt to answer any questions I had, and to show me properties within days of asking.  She gives great and honest advice, and made me feel confident in my decision to purchase my condo.  I have worked with Heather several times in the past and I will continue to do so in the future.  I recommend her to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell.  She also makes the process fun, and I genuinely enjoyed seeing her each time she would show me a property.  I cannot say enough good things about Heather.  Highly recommend!

Melissa Goss, HomeSnap Review

 Jon Arruda and Heather Sawyer were an absolute pleasure to work with. They displayed total professionalism yet we feel we have friends for life. They always responded to any questions or concerns immediately and kept us up to date.  We would not hesitate to recommend Jon and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell property.08/05/2014 - cardladyjanBought a Single Family home in 2014 in Waterford, CT. 

cardladyjan, Zillow Review

For the last two years our family has been looking at homes. After a number of ups and downs we finally found a realtor who listened to our needs in a home and our wants in a home. She took the time to show us a number of homes and revisit homes that were of interest. We were more than happy with Arruda real estate team who put our needs as a family in their best interest!.04/30/2015 - Stacilynn22Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Gales Ferry, CT.Primary point of contact: Heather Sawyer

Stacilynn22, Zillow Review

The Arruda Real Estate Team who worked with my husband and I recently was outstanding! Throughout two separate closings this past year, we had extremely positive experiences with Jon and Heather. They had tremendous patience with us, helped with realistic expectations (we were buying properties that needed work), and they spent a tremendous amount of time negotiating for us. We sincerely felt like they were partners with us in this process and held our best interests as their own. We can't recommend them highly enough to others and will absolutely use them again in the future.12/09/2015 - chesp33Bought a home in 2015 in CT 06340

Could not ask for a better agency to represent us. Realtor Agent Heather Sawyer was exceptional in her attention to details, her photographs of the house gave the house a spirit of its own and she was very sensitive to our concerns. Heather was always available to answer questions for us as we navigated through the paperwork for the sale of the house. Extremely meticulous in every aspect of the sale. We could not have been more pleased with the service and the friends we have gained.11/02/2017 - pporter027Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Groton, CT.Primary point of contact: Heather Sawyer

I worked with Heather Sawyer and I can’t say enough wonderful things about my experience with her. She was on top of everything, she was authentic and represented my best interest. I would recommend using Arruda Realty to anyone that is looking for someone who will advise them and work to help them find the home of their dreams.01/29/2019 - hgatchek2Bought a Condo home in 2019 in Waterford, CT.Primary point of contact: Heather Sawyer

hgatchek2, Zillow Review

We were impressed with the extremely professional, friendly and caring approach to the sale of our previous home. This included being ahead of time for showings with fast and detailed feedback on potential buyer's comments. Always available and accessible during the sale and the purchase of our new home. We also received superior negotiating advise for selling and buying. Having bought and sold 6 homes in our lifetime we recommend the Arruda agency very highly. THEY ARE THE BEST we have encountered !04/02/2019 - rebelrob27gaBought and sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Groton, CT.Primary point of contact: Heather Sawyer
