Awarded by the Chicago Association of Realtors
After spending twelve successful years as a human resources consultant and corporate leader in Chicago, Heather knew that it was time for a change. So in 2007 she made the leap into real estate and hasn't looked back! Her ascent to "Top Producer" status as recognized by the Chicago Association of realtors by her second year in the business (and each year thereafter) confirmed the move! In those years she has helped hundreds of clients realize their dream of buying or selling their Chicago home.
As a Chicago native, Heather understands the diversity and the different lifestyles offered by each neighborhood in this vibrant, appealing city. In the last 15 years she has lived in Ravenswood, Roscoe Village and Lakeview and as a full-time agent, Heather is dedicated 24/7 to her clients' needs. Her strong work ethic and commitment to excellence ensures that from the beginning to the end of her clients' home buying or selling process, no detail is missed.
Heather is a graduate of the University of Denver and has an MBA from Northwestern's Kellogg Graduate School of Management. In her free time she spends time with her husband Jens and her two young sons, Pierce & Chase and her two lovable mutts, Syndey & Laika. Heather is an active member of the Burley School District community, a Chicago public elementary school in Lakeview.
