Heather Kinealy

Sales advisor

Realtor, mom, wife, and travel hound.

"Strength lies in differences, not in similarities." - Stephen Covey

Heather is Aurora born and bred but now resides in the quaint little suburb of Downers Grove. She and her husband try to give their kids the gift of travel and experiences so that they have an appreciation for how truly wonderful the world really is. They do this whether they like it or not.

She loves dry humor, sarcasm, decorating, creating Pinterest boards that she may or may not ever use, and is a horrible bowler (although she's been in a bowling league for 5 yrs). She loves Orange Theory and tries to submit to their program a few times per week to keep herself sane. She also loves to cook and almost considered leaving her career to go to Culinary School, but has decided to pour all of her creativity into real estate instead. 

Heather had a long corporate career before real estate where she learned how well you treat the customer, and how they feel about their experience with you, is of the utmost importance. Heather has been told she's "externally focused" and doesn't think that's a bad thing.

Whether it's helping you sell your home or buy a home, her focus is to guide you, educate you about the market in your area, and ultimately come up with a game plan to work together to accomplish your goals. It's your house, your money, and your time. She's here to assist you in any way she can.

"We worked with Heather for over a year in anticipation of selling our home and moving to another state. She was tremendously helpful in this process. We needed a guide to help prepare our house for the sale. explain things as we progressed, be available to answer our questions and be a therapist when our anxieties peaked. Heather was all of this - and more! She brought an interior designer in to plan colors and design ideas to help us best present our home. They later returned to stage the house when we listed. After the staging, we fell in love with our home - it was more appealing to us than it had ever been when we lived in it. Heather also walked us through the home prior to listing and advised on work that should be done (and things we could ignore) to put ourselves in the best position to sell. We remained in contact with Heather over the course of 9 months while we overhauled our home and prepped it to list. Throughout that time she was available to answer questions, offer suggestions and counsel us as we worked through a sometimes difficult process. Moving is a big deal - one of life's biggest events - it really helped to have Heather's support and wisdom throughout. We listed our home and it sold quickly - even before we had found another home! We are extremely pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend Heather to anyone looking to list their home."

My family and I spent a little time renting a BrightLeaf home recently. We found the quality of the house to be top notch. Our interactions with Jarrett and other members of the BrightLeaf staff met and often exceeded our expectations. Overall a great experience!
