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.
