HEATHER LAROSE – REAL ESTATE ASSOCIATE, REALTOR®
Heather’s introduction to real estate began at age of 11 when she and her family purchased an adjoining home and property for $1.00. The home had good bones and beautiful Victorian charm; and, the town was delighted to sell to a family wishing to renovate the property that was slated for demolition.
Heather started her professional career pursuing traditional marketing roles, but she kept finding herself reflecting on the home her family purchased so many years ago. She spent her free time helping friends and colleagues find a home that “fit them”. Heather decided to follow her passion for real estate, so she pivoted careers and become a real estate loan officer in 2007. Heather learned the details of loans and transactions, but she mostly treasured the time with her clients. She found herself studying Real Estate at night while originating loan contracts during the day. Seven years ago, she became a full time Real Estate Agent.
Since 2014, Heather has excelled in her real estate career, and she has found immense fulfillment as a top producing Real Estate Agent and member of the President’s Club. While Heather recognizes this is the career she should have pursued at age 12, the experience she gained on the path towards a career of her calling makes her appreciate the role that much more.
Heather has an impressive ability to understand what her clients are looking for, and she uses that insight to help them find their perfect home. This ability is strengthened by her incessant interest in studying the dynamic trends of the North Carolina market; she is committed to forthright and fact based feedback to her clients. Recognizing that home purchases can be equal parts fun, daunting, and complex, Heather ensures that each partnership is built on trust, active listening, and a clear understanding of the process. She has a track record of providing her clients exceptional care both during and after their home transaction.
When not helping others find their homes, Heather finds herself stealing back her socks from her renegade Golden doodle named Piper, supporting local restaurants as an avid foodie, and enjoying time with her mom, sister, and six year old nephew.
