Prior to joining the real estate industry, Heath worked as an attorney at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP and White & Case LLP where he advised companies and financial institutions in connection with domestic and international financings and acquisitions. Heath’s legal background has aided him tremendously during his time in real estate as he continues to use his communication, negotiation and deal management skills to achieve the best results for his clients.

His professionalism, resourcefulness and tenacity make him uniquely qualified to chart out a plan of action for his clients and to see it through to completion.

He resides in Manhattan's Midtown East and loves his neighborhood's proximity to many of Manhattan's iconic attractions, in particular Central Park, where he proposed to and married his wife, Melissa.
