About Heather



I adopted Cookeville, Tennessee 17 years ago. I moved here from northeast Ohio where I was the Client Coordinator for a real estate office there for approximately two and a half years.  I've been a REALTOR for 16 years. I've loved the real estate industry ever since I answered my first call from a prospective buyer. It gives me an exciting opportunity to help buyers find homes and sellers make a move. I love helping people achieve the American Dream. When I am not working (which is rare), I enjoy spending time with my husband Matt, our son Barrett Matthew and our little girl Hadley Ellen.


I offer service above and beyond what is normally expected in Cookeville, Tennessee and surrounding areas real estate. I believe the essence of my job is more than simply buying or selling properties. It's about building trusting relationships with the people I work with in the Highlands of Tennessee. I feel that this friendly spirit allows me to easily connect with my clients and it lets me show them how to make the most of their Upper Cumberland real estate experience. I know in order to reach your dreams that I have to work hard for you, and that's why I always go the extra mile.

I specialize in representing my clients in the purchases and sales of single-family residences and income property within the cities of Cookeville, Algood, Rickman, Livingston, Sparta, Baxter, Monterey, Gainesboro and surrounding areas. I keep current of all transactions in these areas, and I'm also always familiar with the current active MLS and for sale by owner market. And most important of all, I am not a high pressure salesperson! I am only out to help my clients make the best decision possible in buying and selling real estate in middle Tennessee.Still not convinced that I am the REALTOR for you?  Check out what some of my Raving Fans said!!!
