When Heather first started in real estate she adopted a simple strategy – one which has been the cornerstone of a successful eighteen-year career to date with LJ Hooker. For her, it’s always been about people, not houses. And with two LJ Hooker Bronze Club awards under her belt, it’s clearly a strategy that will continue to stand her in good stead.
Heather comes from a service industry background – and it shows. Her aim is to make the property process stressless rather than stressful and her cheerful, happy demeanour goes a long way to achieving that – proof positive being the fact that 95 per cent of her sales come from repeat business.
A background training as a nurse, working as a receptionist, several years as the only female consultant in Queensland at a telecommunications company and a supervisory job in communications at police headquarters for seven years gave Heather a jump start in real estate in 1998.
