TESTIMONIALS


 

I need ten stars for Heidi not five. Heidi surpassed all expectations of what a realtor partner can be. She leads with passion and unstoppable positive energy. At every turn she guided us with insights and knowledge garnered from her deep understanding and involvement in the current market. She was clear and direct with what needed to be done to present our home in its best light. Heidi went above and beyond following through to the last polishing touches. Heidi’s razor focus on positioning our home at the right price, broad client base and loyal partnerships with other realtors contributed to generating a high volume of interest and buzz that resulted in multiple bids at our initial open house. It never occurred to me what a huge impact having a realtor who is a leader in her field, one who generates a high volume of sales, could have on heightening the profile and exposure of our home. Thank you, Heidi!

Heidi was wonderful to work with throughout the process of buying my new home. Her honest and genuine demeanor comes through in the first few minutes of meeting. Heidi is a straight shooter & tells you exactly what her role is to the seller but walked the delicate line of making me feel that my needs and concerns were just as relevant as the sellers. I would recommend Heidi over and over again. She’s a rare breed in the Residential Real Estate Biz. 5 stars all the way. If there were more, I’d give her a double 5 Star!!

If you’re looking for a great Port Washington real estate agent, look no further than Heidi Karagianis. She is outgoing and positive with an in-depth knowledge of the local market. Her prior work as a film location manager and her art background give her a special edge in knowing how to stage a house properly. Professional and hard-working, Heidi is also very conscientious -the morning after we hired her, she was at the Town Office when they opened their doors to get the Tax History of the house and all the Certificate of Occupancies to make sure they were up to date. Her energy level is through the roof, even helping us carry our cats down 2 flights of stairs to the car before showings. There’s a reason she sells more homes than others: A nice person, a dynamo with highly analytical skills make Heidi a top agent.

Heidi is the BEST of the best. We just purchased our second home with Heidi. Her expertise are unparalleled - she knows the market, has community and historical knowledge to help you navigate this competitive market, and is super responsive and attentive to her clients. I HIGHLY recommend Heidi without any reservation!

- Buyer, Port Washington

 


 

Heidi is knowledgeable about all aspects of selling a home, has her finger on the pulse of the market, and gave us advice that we could trust. She is a true professional as well as an absolute pleasure to work with! 

– Seller, Port Washington

 


 

I cannot imagine that there is anybody better at this. Actually, there isn’t. Heidi guided us with great skill through what became a challenging process. But, her perseverance, her can-do approach and highly positive attitude are skills and temperament that were absolutely necessary for us. Cannot be more appreciative. Heidi is the best.

The only word I can think of to amply describe the experience of working with Heidi Karagianis to sell my late aunt’s home this past spring is a resounding “WOW”!!! From the get-go, her creative and personal approach to uncovering and magnifying the best qualities of the house, as well as her immediate understanding of, and sensitivity to, the particular needs of the family selling the house during an emotionally stressful time made her the perfect team leader for our house sale. With one tour of the property Heidi designed a spot-on marketing plan and timeframe for preparing the house for sale, organized her crew of haulers, painters, cleaners, and got the family involved in getting the house cleared out for an early listing. Under her guidance we were able to put the house on the market well ahead of schedule and perfectly timed in the season to bring in offers that led to a record sale in the neighborhood. Since I live overseas and was there for what I hoped would be a limited time to administer and close our aunt’s estate, getting the house sold quickly but without financial sacrifice was a potentially challenging goal. Heidi, however, is a master at strategizing for max profit without discounting the seller’s emotional attachment and priorities for the house sale. In the end, her organization, efficiency, flexibility, availability, communication, and overwhelmingly thoughtful and positive attitude and attention to every detail of the sale (attention that made us feel we were her only clients rather than one sale among the many much more lucrative she was working on during the busy opening of spring season) brought us record offers and a record sale and got me home in record time. Amazing service, expertise and resources, and a total delight to work with. WOW!!!

My wife and I followed her directions to the letter and were rewarded with an open house, bid and contract in less than a week. Her expertise guided us through the entire process as painlessly as possible. Can’t say anything more than she is professional and FANTASTIC. 

- Seller, Port Washington

 


 

Heidi is the real deal. I honestly had no idea how much difference the right real estate professional makes until I met and worked with Heidi to sell our home of 30 years (and, before that, to rent out our adjoining property). She knows exactly what needs to be done to sell real estate AND she knows how to get it accomplished in record time. Her eye and sense of how to ready a house for sale simply cannot be beat. Her cadre of handypersons, painters and photographers are totally at the ready. Our 30 year old “honey-do” list was accomplished in a week! Heidi’s knowledge of the market, what people want, who is out there, what other properties are coming up, how to price, how to create a buzz, how to seize the moment and how to negotiate and close a sale are all spot on and effective. Heidi is a force to be reckoned with and a joy to work with! Despite the fact that she is handling many transactions at the same time (Heidi has been the broker of choice for many neighbors and friends) - she makes everyone feel fully attended to and cared for. I don’t know how she does it all - but am so glad she does!!

Heidi Karagianis is the platinum standard in realtors on the North Shore of Long Island. We have had the great pleasure of buying and selling two houses with Heidi, most recently selling our house and buying our dream home in the same neighborhood. Heidi guided us through the process and was there for us in every way - from negotiations, to contractors, to last minute fixes. Not only is Heidi a wonderful and fun person to spend time with, she knows the market like no other. Whether your family is interested in moving to the North Shore from NYC or some other location, or you’ve been here for the long-term, Heidi is the go-to real estate professional. We always recommend her unequivocally.

- Seller, Manhasset

 


 

Heidi's talent is unmatched! Not only is she a really pleasant and fun person to work with, but her in-depth knowledge of the area, pricing, marketing, and advice are strategic and get fast results. My wife and I had such a wonderful experience working with Heidi to purchase our Co-Op that we hired her again to sell the Co-Op when we were ready to purchase a home. Once the apartment was listed, Heidi found our buyers on the first day it was shown. She quickly negotiated a sales price higher than we had even expected and made the whole process seamless and painless, which we really value as a busy family with three young kids. We wouldn't work with anyone else!

Heidi was able to sell my property quickly and at a price that exceeded my expectations. She handled preparation, marketing, showing and buyer negotiation expertly. Always on top of everything. Best realtor I ever met. 

- Seller, Port Washington

 


 

Heidi helped us find the perfect house. She has more knowledge of the market and trends than anyone else you could speak to. We can confidently say that using any other broker in town would be a mistake!

- Buyer, Port Washington

 


 

Heidi is a Real Estate guru, a true consummate professional for anyone looking to Sell, Buy a home or just looking to get educated about the North Shore Real Estate market. In marketing our newly constructed single-family residence in Port Washington she orchestrated a team of professionals from her staff to Photographer’s and a Home Staging company to showcase our property in the best of light. Heidi brings a special pizzazz to each transaction separating her from the rest of the market. Truly an amazing experience seeing Heidi in action. She has a formula and it works every time. She marketed our property in record time and presented multiple offers after the first Open House. In our book she is a Super Star and we highly recommend her.

– Seller, Port Washington

 


 

Considerate, conscientious, concise -- Heidi is an outstanding professional. She possesses an instinctual understanding of her craft that enables her to seamlessly complete any home transaction. Our decision to choose Heidi to sell our home of 22 years proved wise. Not only was she empathetic to all our feelings, but she has also assembled a team of like-minded professionals to handle all our needs. We highly recommend Heidi Karagianis!

- Seller, Port Washington

 


 

I have worked with Heidi over a year with the potential sale of our home. She is hard working, conscientious, in a word brilliant. Her knowledge of the Long Island real estate market, to her attention of staging a home, and to her reputation amongst her peers makes her a premiere real estate agent in this area. Timing is of the essence in selling a home as well and Heidi was spot on in her advice to list our home earlier than later. The result is that we got our price, with great buyers. She is a pleasure to work with.

- Seller, Port Washington

 


 

Heidi is, without a doubt, the most hardworking real estate professional I have ever worked with. She was always responsive to our needs and concerns and always honest and forthright. Heidi knows the market and is able to evaluate properties and set realistic prices to get a property sold fast at its highest value. She is also not afraid to roll up her sleeves and help with the heavy lifting to make your home look its best to maximize its appeal to buyers. I also looked at many houses with Heidi and she was always patient and never pressured me to make a move before I felt comfortable making an offer. She understood what features were important to us and would bring appropriate properties to our attention.

Heidi was a dream to work with. She set us up for success! Throughout our whole process, we felt like we were getting star treatment. We trusted her right away--she's open, honest, and let us go through our listings with as much transparency as possible. She is really fun to work with, and it felt like getting a professional tour along the ride! We feel like we really lucked out and got a great unit, but it wasn't luck at all: it was Heidi and her expertise! I would seriously recommend Heidi to anyone looking to move to Port Washington. She is wonderful! 

- Renter, Port Washington

 


 

We had such a positive experience working with Heidi to find our home! She's highly competent, extremely responsive, and was genuinely interested in learning about our family and helping us find the perfect home. She was the only realtor we have ever worked with that always returned our phone calls promptly, always did exactly what she said she would do, always arrived early, and always knew the property (inside, out, and backwards). We've been lucky to find realtors we liked working with, but Heidi has, hands down, been the most professional and hard-working agent we have ever met. My husband and I have worked with agents in Los Angeles, Boston, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Long Island. By far, Heidi has been the most knowledgeable and pro-active. Every realtor will say they have 'their finger on the pulse' of a neighborhood... but that's usually just marketing. I can honestly say, Heidi knew EVERY listing, EVERY agent, and had us in to see EVERY property days before it hit the masses. She knew all the neighbors by name. She is incredible (and tireless!). Heidi went above and beyond to find the home that fit our family. She was honest with us (but never discouraging) and gave us feedback that we needed. She was patient and kind and FUN to work with. She took the time to really get to know our family which we truly feel helped us make the right decision. We would work with Heidi again in a heartbeat and would recommend her highly to anyone who asked us for a terrific agent. 

- Buyer, Port Washington

 


 

I cannot express how impressed I have been working with Heidi. She is the consummate professional. She handles complex and emotional issues with grace and sensitivity. Her follow through is exemplary. She has a wide circle of professionals to draw on within crazily short notice to get projects completed and the house ready for sale. She has a designer's eye and a businessperson's experience. She is available virtually 24 hours for help, assistance and guidance. And she does all of this with positivity and enthusiasm, making the entire process a lot less stressful. I recommend Heidi highly and look forward to working with her again. 

- Seller, Port Washington

 


 

Heidi was an outstanding Realtor and I recommend her very highly. From start to finish, I was 100% satisfied with Heidi's advice, expertise and extraordinary professionalism and knowledge of the local marketplace. I actually found Heidi via online reviews and spoke with several of her previous clients, who all spoke glowingly. Heidi was very responsive from my first inquiry to the time of closing. The home that I was selling had been mine for over 15 years, the place where I raised my children, and was a very special place to me. I chose Heidi because I knew she would push me to move forward and guide me through the process, while I had little time to devote to it. Her guidance was spot on, from lightly staging the house, to the timing of listing and, ultimately on, selecting the right offer. She recommended top notch resources (stagers, inspectors, lawyers), and was more than willing to stand in for me during several of the phases that I was not able to attend. All in all, she made it a painless and very productive process for me and my buyers. I'm delighted to have finally been able to move on with nothing but great memories and I honestly don't think I could have done it without Heidi to guide me.

The search for the perfect house is never an easy one, and the process of buying one is an even more difficult one. One thing that you can do to make the process more enjoyable and a bit easier is to have somebody good on your side like Heidi. We were looking for a house in Port Washington, and we went through a few people before we found her. It was like having a weight lifted off our shoulders that we didn't even know we had. Of course we had our hesitations initially - not from anything on her part though - it was mostly due to agents we met prior to her. Could we trust her? Does she really have our best interests at heart? The answer is a resounding yes, yes, and wow yes. She knows all about the market, inventory, neighborhood, and what is considered to be a fair price. When she gives advice on offers, please listen - she 100% knows what she is talking about and is only giving advice to best help you. If you want a house, she will fight for you. We had a difficult time closing on our house due to the seller's bad attorney and the sellers that liked to play games. Heidi was with us every step of the way, chasing after people, following up, and making sure that we got the house. She was completely honest with us, and was so responsive that I never even got to a point of feeling anxious. I could go on and on about Heidi, but below are some snapshot points about why you should go with Heidi. -She is extremely patient and understanding. -She understands what you are looking for, and will show you houses based on that. She won't waste your time with other places that you definitely won't like (unless you want to still see them). -Extremely responsive - even after closing and her job is done, she still keeps in touch! -She refers good people if you need a contractor or lawyer. A good lawyer is a MUST. -She 100% has your best interests at heart. -She's simply the best! :)

Heidi was referred to me by a friend who used Heidi as her broker when she found her home. At the time, I was given a few numbers of real estate brokers, but this friend was persistent that Heidi “is the best” so I decided to meet her before making my final decision. After the first time of looking at areas with Heidi, without a doubt, I knew that she was going to be the one who would find us our home. It had been years of my husband and I being indecisive about where we wanted to move. We had looked at basically every suburb of NYC. After one day of going around with Heidi we had found a town that finally felt like the place we could call home. I give her a lot of credit for that and am very grateful. Heidi immediately picked up on exactly what type of home my husband and I were looking for and she was there with us to guide us throughout the entire process, every step of the way. Heidi truly exemplifies the meaning of hard work. She will do everything she can to accommodate her customer’s needs. She works around the clock and is highly motivated and successful. She goes above and beyond for her customers, genuinely cares, and is also a great source of finding resources in the community. I would highly recommend Heidi to anyone looking for a home.

Heidi Karagians is a top-notch broker! She made the entire process of buying a first home wonderful. She was there for us the entire time!! Her local knowledge of Port Washington is impressive. At our initial meeting, she gave us a detailed tour of the entire area. On top of that, her responsiveness was outstanding. She returned all calls, emails, and texts within the hour with detailed answers. In addition, her negotiation skills were assertive and persistent. I highly recommend Heidi Karagianis--she is phenomenal and gets the job done!!!

Heidi is professional, insightful, responsive and a great listener. After an initial conversation on the phone with my husband and I, she immediately understood what type of homes would be of interest to us. Prior to meeting Heidi, we had met with other brokers who just aimlessly sent us around, seeing 1 or 2 houses each weekend. Feeling the process is dragging on too long without any interests, we started searching online on our own. That is when we came upon one of Heidi’s listing and left her a voicemail. That same night, Heidi already called us back and we chatted awhile on the type of home we are looking for. By Friday, she already hand-picked a huge list of properties for us to choose from. Her list was spot-on. By Saturday, we met Heidi for the first time but felt as if we've known her quite some time. She was very organized with an itinerary planned and arranged for the keys to each property. She asked us to park our car so she can drive us to each of the properties while providing us valuable info about the neighborhood along the way. At each property, she provided such great insights during the walk-throughs. Heidi really go far and beyond to help us quickly find the perfect home within our criteria. She really impressed us from the start. With her help, within a few weeks, we won the bid on our beautiful dream house with all the amenities we had wanted. We would definitely recommend Heidi to any home buyers. Heidi provided such dedication, knowledge and experience beyond our expectations.

Heidi Karagianis is outstanding. I consider her to be in the top 1% of all professionals I ever met in my personal and professional life. She helped me with a house purchase recently, and I cannot be happier with results. Unlike so many real estate agents, Heidi treats her job the same way a top investment banker would. She is knowledgeable, extremely responsive, understands your true needs. Heidi doesn't waste time. She delivers results and is an incredible pleasure to work with. Getting from offer to close was a difficult road, and she was there every step of the way truly representing my interests. All referrals I received from her (unsurprisingly) turned out to be tier one professionals. I will gladly do business with Heidi Karagianis again anytime. 

- Buyer, Port Washington

 


 

HEIDI KARAGIANIS is a TOP FLIGHT REALTOR who made our recent home purchase one of our BEST EXPERIENCES EVER. Her professional manner, sweet demeanor and thorough knowledge of real estate are FIRST CLASS. After unsuccessfully searching for a house for over 2 years, my wife and I were extremely frustrated (to say the least) and on the verge of giving up. We then met Heidi who was a godsend (no exaggeration). She LISTENED to our needs (other realtors we met don't) and quickly found our dream house. Since it was a "hot" house with many prospective buyers & bidders, Heidi showed great skill and persistence in getting our bid to be quickly accepted which was no small feat. Without her, I am not sure we would have ever found our dream home and become this happy! In sum, I absolutely recommend Heidi without any reservation to anyone in search of their new home.

- Buyer, Port Washington

 


 

There is a reason why Heidi is a top producer at one of the top firms in the business: Heidi is simply the best there is! It is such a pleasure to work with her because her level of professionalism, her attentiveness, and her friendliness alleviate much of the stress that goes into the process of buying a home, and she brings the fun and excitement back into it. Looking for a home with Heidi is like looking with a friend who truly knows what you like and has your best interests at heart during the search. She listens to your preferences, needs, and concerns, and finds what she thinks would be a great fit for you (and she is always on point!). Heidi walked us through the entire process from search to close so seamlessly and with such attentiveness that despite how busy her schedule can be with other clients, she makes you feel as though you are her only client. She is honest about what is possible and available and will not push you towards anything that you are unsure of just to close a deal, like some other brokers my husband and I have dealt with in the past. I cannot begin to express how much we appreciate how professional and on top of things she is. When Heidi works with you, she is fully focused on you and you never feel rushed or second in line. She makes herself available around the clock for questions and concerns, she responds to calls, emails, and texts within minutes, and she is always clear, detailed, and fully informed. And she is very sweet and friendly, too! It is very easy to begin a listing-related conversation with her that ends in fun stories and laughter. She is also an excellent liaison between yourself and the other parties involved during the purchase process and is proactive at making sure that all the moving parts come together smoothly and in a timely manner. She has an extensive knowledge of the markets in Port Washington, Manhasset, and the surrounding areas, and she works all over the North Shore (...and now that Douglas Elliman is partnered with Knight Frank, she can help you with international properties too!). She also has wonderful contacts throughout the rest of Long Island and Westchester. If you are looking for help with buying or selling your home, Heidi is who we would recommend! We are so glad we worked Heidi and so happy to have found our home with her help!

Heidi Karagianis helped me buy my dream home! Dreams do come true. She is highly knowledgeable about the Sands Point, Port Washington, and Manhasset communities. Heidi has great negotiating skills, and she will work very hard in finding the best home for you. And she does it all with such warmth and respect!!! 

- Buyer, Port Washington

 


 

After working in the real estate industry (in both the commercial and residential forums) for over a decade, it was a truly a pleasure working with Heidi. My family and I could not have asked for a more diligent, thoughtful, intelligent and honest broker. Heidi was available 24/7 for our family and on a moment's notice. It was Heidi's local knowledge and expertise that not only found us our home, positioned us in this uber competitive market to be the winning bid and but then guided us through the entire process to closing. Home buying (especially your first home) is insanely stressful and thanks to Heidi the process was seamless and extremely positive.

- Buyer, Port Washington

 


 

Heidi is truly a first-rate realtor. She is warm and responsive but also savvy and assertive. Before we were even ready to buy, she spent an entire afternoon showing us around the different areas of the town and different styles of houses so that she would understand our needs when we were ready.  When we found our perfect home in Port Washington, she was tireless in her efforts and left no stone unturned to make the deal happen. She guided us through the entire buying process with patience and skill. I give Heidi my highest recommendation. She is truly a gem!  

- Buyer, Port Washington

 


 

Heidi is excellent at her chosen profession. She loves both what she does and her clients, and when you throw 'love' into the mix, it totally changes the game. We are so thankful that she found us our first home in Port Washington. Heidi left no stone unturned for us in our search, secured the property for us in a very competitive market, was a constant help throughout the buying process, and continues to be a friendly face for us whilst we settle into our new town. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

- Buyer, Port Washington

 


 

My family’s journey of finding a home began three years ago. We looked at many towns and over 75 homes. We worked with several different realtors and no one gave us what we fully needed in a realtor. We found Heidi by chance on an MLS listing and i truly believe our prayers were answered. Not only did she find us a home (in a matter of only a few months) but for every home that came out in the market in the area we desired, Heidi made sure we were the FIRST ones in to see it! She understood our urgency of finding a home and I never met a realtor who was as professional, accurate, quick to respond to all my emails and questions as Heidi. She really proved herself right from the start and there was no doubt in my mind that she wouldn’t find us a home. She listens to everything you tell her (which isn’t common with realtors), understands what you need to the exact detail, and is the most honest person i've ever met. I highly recommend Heidi to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home in any town, anywhere. Anyone who works with Heidi will love her from day one!
