Client Testimonials

I have worked with Carrie Heller and her team on a variety of opportunities over many years and have enjoyed their professionalism and personalized service consistently in my dealings with them. They take the time to understand, investigate, follow up and provide feedback so that both company and candidate have the best opportunity to choose well in committing to a new employment relationship.  They are focused on identifying solutions that truly fit and in maintaining relationships over the long term, not with simply making a sale.  Her team is responsive, committed to the client’s success, and can be relied upon for open and frank communications throughout the process.  The Heller Group is a class act that delivers.

Sherri Pinsler has been a valuable partner in our legal recruitment efforts. As a former lawyer, she understands the practice and business of law. Sherri has worked hard to understand the needs of our practice group, but it is her eye for talent and her understanding of cultural fit that make her so good at what she does.

I have worked closely with Carrie Heller and her team and highly recommend her.  She was an outstanding resource on a very difficult and complex project.  I could trust her judgment and she has the utmost integrity.  It also never hurts to actually like the person you work so closely with on critical projects that reflect your own abilities.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with The Heller Group as both a candidate and a client, and they consistently exceeded my expectations on both fronts. When I was a candidate, I found them to be honest, objective and empathetic to the candidate experience; their investment in the process was apparent and comforting. As their client, I relied on them to be thoughtful in their approach, tailoring their suggestions to our specific needs. They showed resourcefulness and resilience during the recruiting process – traits that I really value in a recruiter.
