I found her very accommodating with regards to flying down and looking at properties while on vacation. I would definitely recommend Kristine to any of my friends or family members."

"Kris is the most thorough real estate agent I have ever worked with. She is responsive, has excellent local knowledge of residential properties, and provided a seamless closing and follow up within a little over 20 days after contract agreement!!! We are out of town buyers and with some travel restrictions in place, Kris gave us a face time virtual tour of properties. She handled the negotiation professionally and fairly for both parties. We love our new home in Florida and credit Kris for finding us the ideal location for the rest of our lives. Thank you Kris!!!"

"We are first time homebuyers and Kristine was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was incredibly patient with us and helped my husband and I find and close on our first home in only a couple months in a seller's market with low home inventory. Kris was available, communicative, and always made time for us. She was diligent in following up with us, our lender, the seller, etc. even on nights, weekends, and over the Christmas holiday. She is obviously an experienced professional and we benefited greatly from her experience and negotiation skills. We were in good hands the whole time and could not have made this happen without her."

"We would like to take a moment to share our experience with working with Kris Heilman. After visiting Sanibel Island for 29 years, we decided it was time that we tried to find a place of our own.

We met Kris at an Open House and immediately saw how personable she is and knew she would be great to work with to find this “perfect condo” for us. She took the time to get to know us; which made it easy for her to know what things would be a priority to us in this “perfect condo.” Kris quickly made us feel we were in good hands with her knowledge of the Island, great working relationship with other realtors, always quick to respond to any questions we had and made sure we were informed of anything new that came available that fit within our parameters. She never pressured us (after 29 years, we were in no hurry).

We, as many others that buy on Sanibel Island, were dealing with many miles between us. Her willingness to view condos for us and send us pictures we felt was exceptional. We currently have a contract on that “perfect condo.” Kris has guided us through every step. She is very detail-oriented; making sure we stay within the time-line of closing. She did an excellent job in the negotiating process, kept us informed through the inspection, providing us with contact information to conduct our financing, obtain insurance, condo association application and all the other little details we may not have thought of. She is a true professional that places her clients first. We highly recommend you choose Kris Heilman with John R. Wood, you will definitely find your “perfect home.”
