Heather’s goal is for you to look back on the services she provided to you and proudly recommend her to everyone you know. If real estate crosses your mind, Heather wants to cross your mind too, every single time.

She is the oldest of 3 sisters and her sweet Mama and Daddy still live in the house that she grew up in. Heather grew up in a farming family and her mother was a teacher. She was taught from an early age that hard work pays off. Heather attended East Carolina University in Greenville, NC and was licensed in 1997.

Heather started her family in 2006 and could not be more proud of her two girls and to be raising them in Southern Wake County, in Fuquay-Varina.
