BUILDING A LIFE AND CAREER IN SANTA ROSA
Born and raised in Sonoma County, Heather is a true regional expert. Aside from a few years spent away at school—where she studied parks and natural resources management—Heather has lived in Santa Rosa all her life. So she knows all about the local neighborhoods, farmers markets, and recreational areas—making her an invaluable resource for new residents. Located just 30 minutes from the beach and about three and a half hours away from the mountains of Truckee, Heather loves the variety of geography available near Santa Rosa.
But the topography isn’t all that draws her to this region of the North Bay; the people are as varied as the landscape and Heather is passionate about helping them all achieve their goals. “I love helping people with those big transitions,” says Heather, describing how moving from a big home to a small home or opting for a different lifestyle can change a person’s whole life.
While she was always interested in real estate and the security that homeownership can provide, Heather was hesitant to enter the industry right away. But after helping her entrepreneurial family run their bookstore while raising young children, Heather was inspired to try something new. She pursued her passion for real estate, got her license, and committed to bringing ethics and authenticity into her transactions. Now, Heather enjoys helping clients turn their visions into reality, discover the numerous lifestyles available within Sonoma County, and change their lives for the better.
Giving Back to the Community
When she’s not helping buyers find their ideal homes or working with sellers to upgrade or downsize, you can find Heather enjoying the outdoors at Taylor Mountain Regional Park and Annadel State Park; hiking Pomo Canyon Trail; spending time with her children; and looking for ways to give back. To support local realtors, Heather is actively involved in the North Bay Association of REALTORS®, serving on the board of directors for the region as well as helping with fundraising and advocating for realtors through the Santa Rosa chapter committee. Since she has kids, she also gives back to the local schools, serving on the parent council and helping out with fundraisers. In addition, Heather partners with the Sonoma Land Trust, donating time and money to support the organization’s events and fundraising efforts to protect green spaces throughout the county.
