“Education is for improving the lives of others and leaving your community and world better than you found it.” -Marian Wright Edelman
Having spent years in education, it seemed only natural to transition into a career of helping others in their quest to learn and grow in the world of real estate. I have had a lifetime of experience observing; my mother as a principal broker, and my father, as a contractor. They’ve taught me many of the complexities of buying, selling and building real property.
I’ve also personally bought and sold real estate, rented property and purchased and leased commercial property. I’ve learned many of the hard won lessons you can only obtain with personal experience. And now I can pass those on to my clients.
Real estate is my new passion and I’m excited about giving my clients the information, advice and help you seek from a Realtor. I’m dedicated to working with clients and providing them with the knowledge of how real estate can defray your taxes, leverage your hard-earned money, and provide you a comfortable home.
Why Work With Us?
Here’s what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
I cannot think of a single thing Heather could have done to have improved our experience as we went through the process that started with negotiating through a bidding war, that continued with finding a highly qualified home inspector and dealing with an unrealistic appraisal well below the market value established by the multiple bids, and concluded with a successful closing that delivered the perfect home.
One reason I chose Heather was because of all her rave reviews. Now I know why she has nothing but great things said about her. Heather was with me every step of the way, holding my hand when I needed her to; explaining the process as many times as necessary, until I fully understood.
When it came to the important decisions to make on my own though, I felt empowered to make the judgement calls. Heather put together an amazing team of people to make it all happen, in the necessary time frame, and truly went above and beyond in many big and small ways; from the very beginning to the very end (and beyond). I am so grateful I landed in Heather’s experienced arms for this first time journey of mine.
Heather is fantastic! We couldn’t have gotten the house we have without her expertise. She’s extremely professional and friendly, truly the best in her field.
David and Jessica Koenig
Heather is the perfect realtor for us. She started by setting up an interview to get an idea of what kind of house we wanted as well as finding a neighborhood in which we wanted to live. She set up and took us around to look at several houses while getting a stronger feel for what we wanted each time we went looking with her. Heather never pressured us to make any decisions while being firm in her convictions and advice when she knew a certain house was what we wanted. She also helped remind us about our deal breakers such as traffic noise when we were seeming infatuated with a house that was too noisy. Heather is amazing when she estimates what a house will end up selling for. We are from Eugene and have had a really hard time accepting the reality of the Portland market. She has been spot on almost every time with price. We trust Heather. We have never said that about a realtor before. We have yet to get a house but are excited to eventually close on a house with Heather. She has stuck with us when even we thought she should give up on us. Heather puts what is best for us first and she is our perfect realtor!
Heather was with us every step of the way. She was extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhood because she lives a few blocks away! We cannot have had anyone better in this stressful process. We plan to use Heather again in a few years when we sell our home and move to assisted living!

Heather was an absolute rock for me during a period of time when we, as a family, were trying to decide whether to upgrade to a new home. Heather was there during all of our back and forth trying to decide whether to move to a new home (and likely out of our beloved neighborhood) or remodel our current home to fit our needs. Heather was so patient with while we explored the options on the market and toured multiple homes. In the end, we decided to remodel. Heather was there for me during the whole remodel process giving her expert advise. I can’t say enough about her professionalism, knowledge, and optimism. She’s a complete blast to work with!
Heather is far and away the best realtor i have worked with. She is very knowledgeable about:
1- The market (pricing, crime, general ambiance, demand etc)
2- Construction (what is and isn’t important when looking at a purchase).
3- Referrals (she hooked us up with the best inspection team).
4- Research – she pointed us to some great websites to research neighborhood, crime rates, zoning, water quality etc.
Heather isn’t a pushy sales person but she’ll do what it takes to get the right house for you. Most importantly, she cares about you getting into the right situation not just making the sale. Based on previous experiences with realtors, she has a really unique business practice which i have appreciated tremendously. She is top notch.
Heather was the listing agent when I saw an open house and price reduction on Zillow that fit my parameters. She handled both sides of the sale/purchase like the professional she is. The seller got the quick sale they wanted, and I got the speedy purchase I wanted without a single glitch along the way.
Heather is energetic and good humored. She has infinite patience. She knows the area very well and was able to show me properties that corresponded to my shifting ideas of what I wanted in a home, and where I wanted it to be located. The flexibility was invaluable as I was new to the area.
Ultimately Heather found me my home and arranged inspections, negotiated price and settled the purchase in a very short time.
I would definitely recommend Heather to anybody looking to buy a home.
Heather Paris commanded an impressive level of integrity and knowledge in her role as our real estate agent. She worked with us remotely for months before we moved to Oregon, coaching us through some tough decisions, and was always direct and honest when we needed it. She is extremely knowledgeable of the Portland area, and takes very seriously the ‘good fit’ of the property to the buyer family. In a word: she cares… she cares about the family, the relationships and their happiness in the future home. She is certainly the most capable realtor I’ve come across and I am forever grateful she helped us find our way to our new home.
