2008–2017 Top Producer
2018 Top Producer Team
Awarded by the Chicago Association of Realtors
After spending twelve successful years as a human resources consultant and corporate leader in Chicago, Heather knew that it was time for a change. So in 2007 she made the leap into real estate and hasn't looked back! Her ascent to "Top Producer" status as recognized by the Chicago Association of realtors by her second year in the business (and each year thereafter) confirmed the move! In those years she has helped hundreds of clients realize their dream of buying or selling their Chicago home.
As a Chicago native, Heather understands the diversity and the different lifestyles offered by each neighborhood in this vibrant, appealing city. In the last 15 years she has lived in Ravenswood, Roscoe Village and Lakeview and as a full-time agent, Heather is dedicated 24/7 to her clients' needs. Her strong work ethic and commitment to excellence ensures that from the beginning to the end of her clients' home buying or selling process, no detail is missed.
Heather is a graduate of the University of Denver and has an MBA from Northwestern's Kellogg Graduate School of Management. In her free time she spends time with her husband Jens and her two young sons, Pierce & Chase and her two lovable mutts, Syndey & Laika. Heather is an active member of the Burley School District community, a Chicago public elementary school in Lakeview.
Heather was wonderful!!! She is prompt, thorough and professional. I highly recommend Heather!!
Heather was a pleasure to work with. I was referred by a friend who had a great experience, and Heather did not disappoint. She gave us tons of useful information and gave us confidence to make the right decision in our buying process. We are very happy with the condo we bought, and we would not hesitate to bring in Heather again for any buying/selling in the future!
Heather was great, she went out of her way to help us, often jumping at the drop of a hat to get from the city to Gurnee to show us a house when we were worried that it might go before we got there. I'd totally recommend her to anyone looking in the area.
Heather was always available when we came in from out of town. She attended to our specifications and desires
Heather has assisted me in two home purchases and one home sale. My second home purchase was in the west suburbs and she was very accommodating with scheduling viewings. She met us out there on weekends as well as week nights. After looking at homes in several different neighborhoods we finally found the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood within our price range. The home sale went great as well. We had a contract in our hands for the asking price four days after listing. This allowed us to start looking for a new home right away. Heather and her assistant were great throughout the entire process.
This is the second time we've worked with Heather and again had a great experience. We appreciated her industry knowledge and advice throughout the process of both selling and buying condos. She was great at understanding what we really needed and wanted and taking time to talk us through our options. She has a great network of vendors in the industry, as well, which was useful as we brought our condo into shape for selling. We will definitely continue working with Heather in the future!
Heather is one amazing agent, who will do everything necessary to meet your real estate needs. In a little over a year, she sold our two condos and helped us purchase our new home. My wife's condo had been listed in the past by 3 agents with no luck. Heather was able to sell it close to our asking price. My condo, the one that we lived in, needed painting and carpet replacement. She took charge of the work needed and did such a nice work, that I did not even recognize it! it was so beautiful. We listed and in less than a month we had closed. I cannot say enough good things about Heather. She is a great agent and a better person. We will definitely go with Heather on future real estate needs. aL Barrera
Heather is a trustworthy, experienced real estate professional who will get your place sold for top dollar. She spent over an hour with me going through the comps and the strategy for putting my place on the market. From the date of listing, I was under contract in less in a week and the deal was closed in less than three. It was a fast, seamless process and I am forever grateful for Heather for making it all happen!
Working with Heather was an amazing experience. Her knowledge, experience, advice and genuine caring eliminated our apprehensions and concerns. The selling process was smooth sailing from beginning to end. Our house was sold in two days, all the credit goes to Heather. I would definitely recommend Heather to friends. She is honest, sincere and always there for her clients. Michael & Lourdes Hayes
Heather is a wonderful realtor. She helped me sell my condo in the west loop when I lived in San Diego. I had not worries under her care. I used we again to buy a house in North riverside and she traveled many times and made the deal happen. She is a wonderful person and friend.
Heather was incredibly responsive, organized, and incredibly helpful through every part of the buying process. I couldn't have asked for better service.
Heather took on the sale of my condo with vigor and really ran with it. I was really amazed at how fast she had folks walking through. She was very professional and effective in securing a buyer. Her team was super helpful, in setting up pictures, securing potential workers to take care of necessary repairs in the condo, as well as offering to be available to assist workers and cleaning crew in gaining access to the unit to ensure work could get done. Communication was clear, focused and consistent throughout the entire process. I could not have asked for better service.
Heather is very efficient and effective in her helping my son to find the condo close to his office in downtown Chicago as per my sonâs criteria of purchase. She always answered our emails/phone calls as soon as she could. Moreover, she successfully negotiated with the sellerâs agent for our offering price. Itâs been our pleasure to work with Heather and we highly recommend Heather as your realtor.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Heather. Heather is extremely knowledgeable on real estate in the Chicago area. My husband and I worked with her for almost a year in our pursuit to find the "perfect" home and she was extremely patient with us through the entire process. She would always provide us with enough data and information, so we could make an informed decision. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone embarking on their house hunt journey!
Working with Heather was a truly great experience! As a first time home buyer, I had lots of questions and Heather patiently and expertly answered all of them. She has great knowledge of Chicago and its changing real estate market, and helped me find a condo that I'm really happy with. I highly recommend Heather for anyone looking for a new place in Chicago.
She was very informative and made me feel comfortable being a first-time buyer. I was very happy with my experience and I will plan to use her services again in future transactions.
Heather was absolutely great! She made the process as easy as possible on me. Even with some bumps along the way, she still made sure everything would work out. She was always able to work around my schedule, which was great. I was very happy with my experience and I would definitely recommend Heather to others!
She was very straightforward with what to expect from a market perspective. She had alot of knowledge and pointed out features and potential issues about some of the homes when we were touring them. She knew what we were looking for and ultimately suggested we see a home that we didn't have on our list and ultimately purchased! I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Thanks so much for everything! We had a great experience and found our dream home. Thanks for taking the time to help us become familiar with the different options so that when we found the right one we were ready to make the move. We don't plan on selling any time soon, but we'll be calling you again next time we move for sure! Megan & Jeff Hamilton
Heather is a wonderfully personable, knowledgable agent, who consistently worked to provide us with listings that fit our wants and needs. She worked dilligently to get us into houses that were not only within our price range but also fit our strigent criteria regarding neighborhood and school system needs. Heather truly provided us with a 5-star experience, and I will definitely be recommending her and Dream Town's services to friends.
Heather was fantastic, I called her just out of the blue (based on an outdated listing) and am so glad i connected with her. She helped me find and buy a place that I love, all within a month. She was fantastic about explaining all the steps to me and answering all my questions; she gave great advice and I could tell she really was trying to get me the best deal and making sure I didn't overspend. Thank you Heather!
Heather really guided our family through the process of buying a condo in the city. We are suburbanites with no knowledge of what to consider when buying a condo, Heather really walk us through what all we needed to consider. I had also ask Heather that my daughter who was going to be the primary resident of this condo be included in the process, again Heather fully explained to her all that has to be considered in buying property. With our lack of knowledge of the city and condo purchasing, Heather was extremely patient and did not pressure us into make quick decisions. When I am ready to sell the condo we purchased Heather will be who we contact.
Heather was friendly, professional and very responsive. She seemed very knowledge about the local housing market, and was very perceptive about our property preferences. We would definitely recommend her to someone else.
Heather was amazing! Having recently relocated to Chicago from Dallas, we were initially concerned about whether we would be able to find affordable real estate options in such a high cost location after being in a very low cost location for 16 years. Heather helped us with the process and took us through all the various housing options in Chicago and we were very much appreciative. She made the anxiety go away and allowed us to view things in perspective. Heather built a strong relationship with us and made us feel comfortable that she would be our agent for life and that this was not "just a transaction". Thanks Heather!!!
Heather is very knowlegeable and also a pleasure to work with. She has impeccable integrity, which is very important given the amount of money involved. She is always responsive and patiently handles all questions.
We were very pleased with our experience with Heather. She had an expert knowledge of the process and went above and beyond to ensure that everything went smoothly, in spite of some complicating factors beyond her control. Heather represented us in both the purchase and sale of our home, and had we not left the Chicago area we would have loved to continue working with her to find our next home. Overall, Heather is an outstanding realtor and we have nothing but the highest praise for her work.
If you want the best real estate agent, heather is the one. Trustworthy, bright, very responsive, and fun!
As first time home buyers I don't think we could have had a better realtor than Heather. Heather is extremely patient and truly cares about her clients. She took the time to educate us on the aspects of buying a home rather than simply push us through the process. During our long search (almost 2 years), which started in the northwest suburbs and ultimately ended in Lakeview, Heather was terrific. Heather made us feel at ease in what was a somewhat stressful experience for us as first time home buyers. She was understanding of our continually changing minds (house in the burbs to condo in the city) and made herself readily available to us for showings and questions despite her busy schedule. Heather is extremely knowledgeable of the Chicagoland market and is a true professional. I highly recommend Heather to anyone looking for not only a savvy realtor but also someone you can trust with what is a very important decision. Don and Diana Cunningham, Lakeview
Heather's greatest skill is the close...and I have to say it is one of the most important. In that crucible, so much can change so quickly, you need a knowledgeable and skilled person on your side to navigate the turbulence. Heather has a grasp of what's real in the market, a knack for communicating with all types of agents, and a follow-through to get it done (not to mention the ability to soothe clients who are anxious with the challenges faced in a complex deal). She keeps the deal going and fights for what you need and what is best for you. Ty and Meegan Beckmann, Bucktown
As being first time home owners we were very skeptical, afraid, excited as well as overwhelmed with all the decisions, choices and nature of this the home buying experience. Heather was extremely patient in accommodating our needs by explaining each step. She addressed all our concerns, never rushed or pressured us and gave us excellent guidance with all the background information that we needed on a home. She also has a great network of contacts so you will not have to worry about finding a lawyer, mortgage broker, contractor, home inspector, etc. They are all professionals and worked out well for us. It's truly been a pleasure working with her and we look forward to finding our next investment property with her. Reema Sanghvi and Vishal Kapashi, Bucktown
I don't think that we could have found a more patient real estate agent - we were considering two completely different types of properties which added to the complexity of our home search, but Heather was very supportive and had a good understanding of what we were looking for. It is helpful that she is extremely knowledgeable about the Chicago neighborhoods, and we really valued her opinions and honesty. She was always very responsive to our questions and arrived to show us houses with a posiitve and upbeat attitude, even though our search took a long time. We are now very happy in our new townhouse! Allison Scheer and Steven Bidny, Lakeview
We had a clear idea of what we were looking for but after visiting numerous properties over many, many months we still didn't find "the one." Heather kept us on track and from losing hope that we would never find that perfect place. We couldn't be happier in our new condo and could not have done it without Dream Town! We recommend working with Heather, especially to first time home buyers, her kind attitude and hard work will help you reach your goal.Katey Gaffney, Lincoln Park
Heather and Sarahjane were absolutely brilliant! They were always available, quick with responses, and up-front and honest with us. They worked tirelessly to market and show the home we were selling, and we simply had a blast with both of them shopping for our new home.
Heather is a breath of fresh air amongst the world of real estate. She is highly knowledgeable, thoughtful, responsive, enthusiastic, and patient enough to always have another home to view, or helpful comments on why the house you just saw is good or bad. Her goal is to ensure that you find the home you truly want. I look forward to our next purchase with her. Ken Bahk, Lakeview
Working with Heather was a fantastic experience. She was very patient with us throughout the entire process, always willing to answer our questions and fully explain where we were at in the process. She provided up to date communication and you always knew where you stood in the process. Being fairly new to the home buying process, Heather provided a lot of insight and knowledge that helped us envision our potential new home. We went into the house hunt thinking we wanted to be in a specific neighborhood but Heather was able to expand our search giving us options we never really knew we had and it just so happens this is where we ended up buying our home! She really made the process seamless and fun from the beginning to the closing. Thanks, Heather!Jennifer and Bryan Cali, South Loop
I just want to say Heather is one of the best real estate agents ever! She was so patient and kind. She's very knowledgeable and was able to find me the perfect condo. She made my home buying process easy and stress free. Thank you Heather and Dream Town Realty for all of your help. Towanda Harris, South Loop
Heather s superior knowledge of Chicago s real estate market and her dedication to us made our entire real estate search stress-free and enjoyable from beginning to end. She worked tirelessly and responded to our emails and phone calls in a timely manner; even well into the late night hours. She was always willing to be by our side and explain the purchasing process each step of the way. We are extremely happy with our new condo in the South Loop and will definitely work with Heather again in the future. We have and will recommend Heather for anyone s real estate needs.Ryan and Laura Blackledge, South Loop
