With over 10 years of experience in the Bay Area real estate industry, Heather has cultivated her skills in working with individuals in what is one of the most significant and costly transactions in their lives. Heather understands this clearly and works with clients every step of the way to ensure that the escrow process is as seamless as possible. For two-and-a-half years, Heather worked with Byzantium Brokerage, one of the Bay Area’s top luxury teams. During that time, the team closed $123 million in sales. In 2012, Byzantium Brokerage appeared as number 159 on The Wall Street Journal's Top 1,000 real estate professionals in the United States. As a crucial team member, Heather also gained insight into other Bay Area markets -- such as Tiburon and Belvedere in Marin County.
Prior to her work with Byzantium, Heather entered real estate in 2003 as a transaction coordinator at Pacific Union DBA Compass’s various branches in San Francisco. In this multitasking role, she provided a wide variety of solutions and services to agents, such as managing and auditing files as well as reviewing and maintaining an updated list of mandated city and statewide disclosures and reports. Heather also liaised with agents, their clients, title companies, and Pacific Union DBA Compass’s broker of record, which placed her in the unique position of navigating the multiple challenges that arose during the escrow process. She was instrumental in facilitating the closings of over 900 successful transactions. As such, she is well-versed in all facets of the escrow process, and she understands the intricacies of the seemingly infinite documents associated with each transaction.
As a San Francisco homeowner, Heather also previously served as president of her homeowner’s association. As such, she is familiar with the politics of condo associations and can provide guidance on complicated HOA matters.
In addition to her passion for real estate, Heather has a background in the arts. From 2002-2008, she provided graphic and costume design services for (a)eromestiza, a local performing arts company with an international track record. Having studied fashion design and math, Heather has the ability to balance the left and right sides of the brain, which is a crucial skill to have as a real estate professional in San Francisco -- no aesthetic fluff without a critical sensibility.
Whether you are seduced by the Victorians by which San Francisco is most known or by contemporary architectural styles such as the high rises or boutique lofts in SOMA, it is important to understand the challenges that any given property poses.
San Francisco; real estate: for Heather, they are her passion and knowledge. And she is ready to share that passion and knowledge with you, whether you are selling, buying, or just contemplating; whether you have a kid, a dog, or a pig, and wonder which micro hood would be most appropriate; or whether you like to frequent restaurants offering obscure ethnic cuisine, state-of-the-art nightclubs, bars known for their esoteric mixology, prized coffee shops with top-of-the-line roasts, parks that host Chihuahua cha-chas, or the lesser-known avant-garde galleries and performance spaces.
Heather is ready to explore the possibilities with YOU.
