Having searched for a cabin for two years, in 6 different states, I found one of interest in Camp Connell. I drove the two hours from home to see the cabin in person and was pleasantly surprised. On my way home I noticed the Dorrington Realty office on Highway 4 and decided to stop. I was warmly greeted by Barbara who told me that the cabin was not one of their listings but that she would be happy to answer any questions I may have had and to help in any other way. Not only was Barbara helpful that afternoon, but she became my agent and I could not have been luckier. This purchase was a first for me and my family and I'm not sure if it would have happened without Barbara. Her guidance, knowledge and patience are second to none and all were put to the test... by me! She not only was the consummate professional, but treated us with the utmost respect and we were treated as friends, not clients. Even her family contributed by removing/moving unwanted items left behind by the previous owner! I can't recommend Barbara and Dorrington Realty highly enough. Not only will you find the perfect property, you'll gain instant friends as well. The memories of this purchase are wonderful, in large part to Barbara and her willingness to go above and beyond what is asked of her. She's a great agent and a wonderful person. I couldn't be more pleased and am absolutely thrilled with the "new" cabin. Thank you, Barbara!

We were so lucky to work with Barbara during the sale of our cabin. She was always on top of things each step of our sale. She kept us well inform and there was never a time when we did not know what was going on. It was truly a pleasure to work with her and we would recommend Barbara to anyone that is selling or interested in buying in the area. Thank you so much Barbara.

Barbara Heisinger was the realtor in a transaction involving the sale of our condominium. She was wonderful to work with in many ways. She was responsive in a timely fashion each step of the way — through counter-offers, inspections, appraisals, and snow storms!! Barbara kept me constantly informed about steps in the process through and including a couple questions after close of escrow. I highly recommend Barbara to other sellers or buyers in the area.
Roxanne was extremely helpful--she showed us many properties until we found the one we bought. We would have overlooked the property we ended up buying, if it weren't for Roxanne! She advocated for us during the purchase and was always quick to respond to email or phone calls. She was great to work with. We would recommend her to others interested in Buying in the area.

Linda listed and sold our property in Spring of 2012. Not only is Linda a joy to work with, she knows the real estate market in Big Trees better than anyone. After we had listed with another agent for about six months without success we turned to Linda. Within weeks we had two offers and closed the next month. Fantastic!
Linda, Just writing to thank you for all your expertise and help regarding our recent cabin purchase on Karock Road. From the first time my wife and I met up with you to look at listings, you took the lead and guided us easily through the process to close of escrow. Even though the sellers bank was very challenging to work with, you and your team handled all the details for us allowing us to focus on the excitement of our new purchase. Not only did you help with the purchase, but you continue to be a great resource for us as we adapt to the mountain life. We very much appreciate you and the entire Dorrington Reality Team for enabling this dream come true for my family and I. Thanks again for all your help, Sincerely, Bill
Thursday, October 30, 2014 Reg: Barbara Heisinger My wife and I will be completing the sale of our weekend home and separate lot in Big Trees on October 31st. The purpose of our email is to let you know what a pleasure it has been to work with Barbara Heisinger. Barbara has professionally and efficiently handled all aspects of our sale including: marketing the home and property, representing our interests, scheduling inspections and contract work, assisting us in moving items from the home, successfully negotiating with buyers' agent to resolve issues, handling communications in a timely manner, etc. Barbara is a professional in every sense of the word, she has a wonderful personality and the quality of her work has been extraordinary. She is a great asset to Dorrington Realty. We appreciate the work done by Barbara and Dorrington Realty. Thank you. Best regards, Jack & Pam

My husband and I can't say enough positive things about our experience in working with Barbara Heisinger at Dorrington Realty. From the start, Barbara was proactive about identifying the order of preferences, requirements and price range for our home and bringing forward the most relevant options. Barbara was sensitive to the fact that we were not from the area and kept in touch with new listings frequently and was great about follow up. Her knowledge of the area truly helped us to choose the right elevation and location for the property and she was extremely patient, courteous, and professional throughout the entire process. Barbara treated us more like friends and neighbors than clients. After finding the perfect home in Dorrington, We're happy to be all three!

My name is Paul and I am now retired and living in Tennessee....I was for 54 years a resident of Cupertino Ca. and had purchased a lot in Avery CA, for weekends and Retirement.......But as life goes, retirement in California became to expensive for a fixed retirement plan.....But hoping that one of the younger family members would want the place, I held onto it.....But with the crash of 2008, the lot became worthless to almost anyone except land thieves. So this year I decided to sale the lot due to no interest from the younger family generation.......BUT, I called three agents in the Area, and not one was interested in the sale of my lot........Then I had the good fortune of meeting Mrs. Barbara Heisinger of Dorrington Associates Inc......She was and is the surprise of 2015.....She not only was happy to represent me in the sale of my lot, she was down right ready to do so........So ready in fact, that my property sold in one weeks time.....I believe that is was due to her work ethics and positive outlook toward her job that make this such a successful sale for me......She not only got the price I wanted, she handled it all for me, due to me living in Tennessee......If you are looking for any kind of property, or wanting to sale one, I would ask you to use Mrs. Heisinger if you wish to fell like a real customer, and not someone to just make money on.........She is worth the effort and time you will use in looking for an agent.........Thank YOU Mrs. Heisinger....

"Linda worked with us for over a year to help us find the perfect cabin for our family. She was available for us on so many different weekends and weekdays to look at cabins and was in it for the long haul with us! She helped us narrow our search and wasn't ever pushy. She followed our lead and was patient with us. We would highly recommend her as a realtor for anyones future needs with buying a cabin in the area!"

Thank you Linda, for doing an outstanding job in selling our cabin in Big Trees Village. You kept us extremely well informed and up to date on the status and actions necessary during the entire process. Your assistance in getting necessary maintenance and inspections completed was a tremendous help to us since we live near Sacramento. We appreciated your advice and trusted your recommendations. It was a pleasure having you as our agent in this transaction.

It has been a pleasure for us to work with you------our friend was right when he indicated a year or two ago "-----that there is only one agent to work with and that is Linda Payton! "

We worked with Linda Payton of Dorrington Realty to purchase a new home in the Arnold area. Linda was our good luck charm! We've been talking about buying a second home for years and we've spent time viewing homes and talking with different realtors in the past -- but we never even made an offer before working with Linda. On the first day Linda took us to view homes (she braved a massive snowfall to show us around!), we found the home we wanted. She worked with us to come up with a fair price, helped write up the offer, and made sure all the details were lined up so we could close on time. Throughout the process she was able to answer not only questions about the deal, but also many questions about the town, resources and owning a second home. She also stopped by the house several times during the process to make sure everything was in order. In addition to knowing her stuff, Linda is a kind, thoughtful person and we are grateful to her (and the friendly, helpful team at Dorrington Realty) for helping us get our fabulous new home.
