Working with Dorrington Realty was a no-brainer given what we were looking for. After our first tour with Suzy, we didn't even consider working with anyone else. Suzy was always professional and insightful, helping us navigate the quick turnaround between listings hitting the market and offers being accepted. Her friendly, upbeat demeanor made that stressful process feel like a game — and a game we could and did win. She helped us make offers in a way that ended up saving us a ton, while still remaining competitive.
Always Professional! -
Suzy’s secret superpowers! -
It was our very first experience selling a house, so we didn’t know the process. Plus that house was not our main residence and most of the time we were not onsite to deal with whatever was happening. Suzy took care of absolutely everything. She gave us good advice on how to prepare the house for showing and helped on things we didn’t have time to do ourselves. She gave the last touches in the house to make it look its best. She also kept us updated every step of the way. We were very pleased with her recommendations to decide on an asking price and on the conditions of the sale. All the paperwork was easy to process since we signed all the documents online. Every question we had, she was able to answer very quickly by text, email, or over the phone. From the day we discussed for the first time to sell our cabin until the sale was finalized it barely took over a month which is much faster than we thought it would be. And the entire time we trusted entirely Suzy to be the best agent we could possibly have. We were in good hands with her in charge ! We are very thankful for all her wonderful work and we would recommend her in a heartbeat !
Very thankful for Suzy -
I had been looking for a mountain getaway for several months on my own, and met Suzy at an Open House. She was personable and friendly, and I knew (having grown up in a multi-generational real-estate family) that she knew exactly what she was doing and was the Realtor for me. She found a perfect property very quickly, and was incredibly supportive and efficient during the offer, inspection, and escrow process. Picking Suzy was the best decision I made all year, and I love my new home. I would absolutely work with her again.
Picking Suzy was the best decision I made all year! -
My husband and I walked into Dorrington Realty one morning to ask a few questions about our mountain property. We feel very fortunate that Nancy Elzig just happened to be working that morning. She couldn't have been more informative and helpful. We decided to have her come and take a look at our property and the rest is history. Not only did she answer all of our questions, but took care of any details to get the property ready for sale. She expertly and quickly managed the listing, exposure, open house, and sale of our mountain home. I've never experienced such ease in real estate transactions. Nancy was there every step of the way. I truly felt she had our best interest at heart and this proved to be true from the moment we walked into her office until the final escrow closing. Now I view Nancy as a friend instead of just a friendly professional. If anyone desires an honest, experienced, and efficient realtor, if you select Nancy, you are probably going to gain a new friend as well. Louise B.

Sheila was willing to meet and work with me quickly. She really listened to my personal story and eagerly helped me. I was especially impressed with the staging and marketing of the home. She really made the place look beautiful! She explained everything very well and I was comfortable during the whole experience.

We found Dorrington Realty during a road trip to the Calaveras Big Trees. When we decided to look for a cabin, we contacted Dorrington Realty and got to know Sheila Rosen. Sheila was friendly and accommodating. She knew the Dorrington area well and steered us toward cabins that fit our rustic style preference. When it came time to make an offer and take on the buyer inspection process, she really represented us well. She made certain that inspectors had access to the cabin, suggested some great companies to use, and went above and beyond to help us bring the sale to a close. We highly recommend Sheila; she is a fantastic realtor.

|Linda helped us and another couple buy a cabin in Arnold in 2009 and then helped us sell it in 2018. We have enjoyed working with her. She is very professional and efficient. We had a cash buyer and a fast escrow. She was instrumental in helping to make sure the process went smoothly from inspections, to repairs and getting the cabin ready to list. We highly recommend Linda Payton for your real estate needs.

Linda, We would like to thank you for a pleasant experience with the purchase of our new cabin. It was refreshing to have a Realtor who followed through and kept us informed through the process. We felt confident you had our best interest in mind. We appreciate the professionalism and the follow-up after the purchase! You made the experience a pleasant one!
Randal & Raquel - Turlock, CA
Roxanne was extremely helpful - she showed us as many properties as we wanted and found the one we ended up buying - I would have overlooked it, but she suggested we should see it! She advocated for us during the purchase, was always very responsive to email or phone calls and was great to work with! We were very happy with our purchase and would recommend Roxanne to others interested in buying in the Arnold/Dorrington area.

Linda, I wanted to take a moment and "thank you" for everything you did for me when it came time to sell my cabin. You were always there to guide me along, call outsiders for help when needed and make things happen. I always enjoy working with a "let's get it done" kind of business person who can be kind all at the same time.
Linda - San Ramon, CA
We walked into Dorrington Realty having never contacted them before. Linda treated us as long-time friends. She is highly knowledgeable of the area and found us exactly what we wanted within our price range. Linda made the process of buying our cabin easy. She went above and beyond even after closing. We highly recommend Dorrington Realty. Mary and Lisa

Barbara, Stan and I want to thank you for all your hard work in helping us to live out a life long dream of owning a cabin in Camp Connell. We were so blessed to have you as our real estate agent! From the moment we met with you and until the final lender docs were signed we knew we had the best agent working on our behalf. The process would not have been as smooth without your guidance. We will highly recommend you and your agency to our family and friends. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Stan and Denise - Manteca
Barbara, we want to say thank you for all your hard work in helping get our cabin! You were always on top of everything and keeping us informed whether it was good news or bad at the time. Always steering us in the right direction and always offering your assistance. Will definitely recommend you to everyone we will meet up in the area!! Thanks again!

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....

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.
