" is extremely knowledgeable with real estate and was patient/helpful throughout the process of our first home purchase. I felt comfortable and that I had a true teammate in & her team. We could not be happier! "

"We have had 4 realtors over 3 states (CA, NH and TX) and interacted with many more. We met by chance but have now worked with her on two purchases, one sale and a fourth transaction where she found us an excellent realtor in another city to handle the sale of my mom's home. In all of these has been professional, responsive and simply nice to work with on what is a sometimes confusing and often stressful process. On top of that, she got us both houses that we went after for prices that we were happy with and sold ours for what we wanted in 7 days. We have had some good agents in the past, but stands out as the best for both buying and selling. "

" was always professional, courteous, punctual and extremely fun to work with throughout the process. She listed and sold our old home and helped us find the perfect new house for our family. We loved working with and would recommend her to anyone. She has excellent contacts and is willing to go the extra step to get the job done."

"Thank you for making our dreams come true!! Your knowledge of the area, expertise, quick feedback and openness made this happen! You are the best of the best and we so appreciate all the time you devoted to our family. We love you!!"

" is very knowledgeable in real estate. She is also aware of current style trends which aides her customers in their search. I found her to be attentive and detail oriented. I plan on continuing to use her services for all my real estate needs!"

About Heather
Heather was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. She relocated to Texas in 1990 but still travels to the Bay Area often to work with clients and visit family. Heather has been in the real estate industry two decades, starting her career working for a Custom Home Builder. She also worked as a National Sales Executive where she developed negotiation and client experience skills, traveling all over the country. Eventually she wanted a career where she could develop these skills further and have the flexibility to not travel as often as she had young kids. She was licensed in 2008 and the Shimala Group was founded in 2016.

At home, she has a supportive husband, Jim, that also helps with the Shimala Group Business. She also has three beautiful children. Her youngest is Patrick, who is in middle school. He enjoys boxing and skateboarding. She has two daughters, Lauren who is currently attending the University of Oklahoma and Morgan is at Texas Tech. In her spare time, you can find her and her husband exploring what Dallas/Ft. Worth has to offer! They are huge foodies and like to find the "Hidden Gem" restaurants that DFW has to offer. Their ideal date night is food, wine, and shopping in Dallas!
