About Heather

A real estate professional for more than 30 years, Heather Doran is known for integrity, diplomacy and sincerity in all her dealings. In her tenure in the business, she has first and foremost strived to be someone in whom her clientele can put their trust and faith in. Every transaction, she believes, is always about her customer. “You are the driver, I am the passenger who’s there to guide, educate, and provide the best service possible.”

The key to Heather’s success has also been the result of her patient demeanour and dedicated work ethic. She knows how to listen, is generous in offering information, and more importantly, knows when to stop talking. Her main intention is to understand her client’s needs and build a relationship that will last over the course of time. When orchestrating deals for her buyers and sellers, Heather is assertive and effective without being too aggressive. While she is a strong negotiator and advocate for her clients, she is just as much a compassionate, friendly, humorous partner who eases a process that can often be quite stressful.

Heather offers clients a seasoned knowledge of the Central City and surrounds and an intimate understanding of what makes each distinct residential niche so special and unique. Heather specializes in all areas of the Central City and Eastern Bays, which she knows extremely well. She also serves clients seeking or selling in the Central Bay and Auckland South areas.

If you would like to be one of Heather’s success stories and are contemplating selling or buying, then call me I would be delighted to help you.



“Meeting Heather and dealing with her was an absolute pleasure.  Her attention to detail and superior communication was a pleasure to experience.  We cannot talk highly enough about the high level of service we received from Heather.  Heather is extremely helpful, her genuine down to earth personality and drive to get the best result was commendable.  If you are dealing with Heather you need to know that you are dealing with someone who is honest an whom you can trust.  We trusted Heather and she sold us our dream home!  We are more than happy to recommend Heather to anyone who is buying or selling”

We have known Heather now for a considerable period of time, part of which time we had our home listed for sale but struggled to sell due to not having a Code Compliance Certificate.

Undeterred Heather worked tirelessly, and found a buyer who was willingly to offer us the sum we needed to make the sale viable.  The sale was completed successfully and swiftly.

Heather has a vivacious and engaging personality.  She made the selling process remarkably painless despite the obstacles.  She dealt with the legal and technical details swiftly and professionally, and was always a pleasure to do business with.

We have no hesitation in recommending her to any other prospective buyer or seller of property.

As a buyer, I consider I was fortunate to be dealing with Heather for my purchase of a holiday cottage at Waiwera. It was an unconventional purchase, involving shares and a Licence to Occupy, and Heather was very thorough in explaining the terms, process and restrictions associated with the cottage. She was always willing to respond to my questions, kept me fully informed, and was even prepared to come in to Auckland to assist with the purchase. Even though it was a relatively low value purchase, Heather gave it her full attention.  I was also aware that she kept in regular, and thorough, contact with the vendors.

I am looking forward to enjoyable times in what I call my “tiny house”!

Thank you!” Heather”.

Hello Heather

Peter and I would like to thank you for the fantastic effort you put into marketing our house at Coastal Heights, Stillwater, to enable us to purchase our new home and lifestyle in Whitianga.

We have ”history” as they say, with you selling our Deep Creek house… achieving over the listed price and working above and beyond to reach settlement when the “ cash out clause” was invoked.

Naturally you were our “Agent of Choice” to market Coastal Heights, again achieving a great price along with another miracle when the “cash out clause” was invoked on our purchase of Little George Place.

The stress levels were rising in our house, but your calm, professional, confident approach in both situations enabled us to move forward with joy.

Thank you for listening, really listening to us both as we came to grips with this huge decision to move to Whitianga.  We both would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family, who are about to market their properties.

Wishing you continued success in the market place.

Regards Fiona and Peter - Whitianga

To Whom It May Concern we first met Heather back in late 2015. We had expressed a desire to sell our home but the timing was not quite right at that stage. As the months went by Heather would occasionally visit making a courtesy call to indicate that she was still there and keen to assist us. We kept turning her away and it was a year before we were ready to contemplate a sale. At that time, we selected Heather to represent us as we liked her patience, politeness and the persistence she had shown over this time. Selling a home can be stressful but Heather did her professional best to ease us through the process of an ‘expressions of interest’ marketing campaign. This method we were unfamiliar with but Heather was more than optimistic of achieving a very positive outcome. This was achieved in early March, 2017 after a vigorous three week marketing program. We were very happy with the result and the price that was achieved. We would highly recommend Heather's services to any other potential vendors who may be contemplating selling.

I engaged with Heather as a property purchaser and found the overall experience very positive. Heather is totally professional in her dealings. She has an exceptional work ethic, very high personal ethics and is very buttoned down on process. Communication is top notch with Heather on the job; she responds in a very timely manner 24/7, does what she undertakes to do and really goes the extra mile to make sure that all details are taken care of. 

As mentioned, I was the purchaser in the transaction, I found Heather was always courteous and respectful and was definitely a strong advocate for her vendor client. There is no doubt in my mind that she would be totally dedicated and tireless in achieving great results as a sales agent.

Heather Doran did a great job in helping my Family Trust purchase a Commercial Office Property in Queen Street, Central Auckland. From my initial enquiry, Heather was prompt in providing me with all the necessary information, arrange viewings, and ensured a quick turnaround on feedback from the Vendor. On a personal level, Heather's warm and friendly style certainly helped with my negotiations. I would certainly use Heather again as an agent for any future property transactions.

Dear Heather after having previously marketed my home through another reputable agency, of which the outcome was completely unsuccessful, this resulted in a feeling of despondency over the selling procedure.

I was then advised by a friend to approach Heather Doran, a Real Estate agent who came with high recommendations. Engaging Heather in the marketing of my property was the best decision I made in accomplishing a successful outcome.

Her approach to marketing my property was very professional, as she outlined all the pros and cons of exactly what a buyer could expect, thus eliminating any surprises for potential buyers. This resulted in Heather obtaining a successful sale, a result that I am very pleased with and most grateful for.

In my dealings with Heather, I have found her to be very professional, helpful, and of very high integrity.

I, therefore, have no hesitation in recommending Heather Doran to anyone who is contemplating the buying or selling of a property, no matter where it is.

Again thank you very much.
