Let me introduce myself:
I grew up in California in a mountain cabin (thus my name Heidi) by Lake Tahoe and then in the bay area village of Saratoga. Beach loving girl that I am, I started my university years in San Diego. The summer before I finished my degree at Baylor University, I met my husband on the beach in Santa Cruz. We moved to Whidbey because my in-laws discovered the wonders of this island while delivering custom cabinetry. We raised two girls who are now building their own homes with my two son-in-loves.
My knack for all things home developed nicely surrounded by an extremely talented husband and family in the building industry for 40+ years. Decades of experience with the buying, selling, and remodeling process will help me to prep your home for sale or negotiate a purchase for you. I always treat my clients like friends, so as we get to know each other, I’ll listen and be all in for you beyond what you ask or expect!
When I’m not working in real estate, I love to be in or around some body of water. A vacation where I can swim and float in clear, calm water is my favorite thing. I like to stroll the beach with my pup spotting whales & eagles and finding sea glass, sand dollars and more. You’ll also find me lost in all things literature. I'm a closet fiction writer, an avid reader and I love to snuggle in, study tons, and stay cozy at home with my sweet guy.
I am so grateful for you all. With 27 years on Whidbey, sharing what this community has to offer with you brings me joy. As first time buyers, military families, or those seasoned in real estate, you will have me through every step of your transition into or out of your Whidbey home. Not much in life is more important than home-where you belong. Therefore, I do not take your trust in me lightly as I do my best for you and your family.
Two quotes remind me how, even in the most challenging of times, our hope of finding home remains as beautiful as ever. “The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing — to reach the Mountain, to find the place where all the beauty came from — my country, the place where I ought to have been born. Do you think it all meant nothing, all the longing? The longing for home? For indeed it now feels not like going, but like going back.” C. S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces
“I have come home at last! This is my real country! I belong here. This is the land I have been looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now . . . Come further up, come further in!” C. S. Lewis, The Last Battle
