A fourth generation Seattle-ite, Heidi's career path has encompassed the investment world, marketing and advertising, and now real estate. In the early 1980s, Heidi worked in the investment industry and was recognized by the S.E.C. as one of the youngest stockbrokers in the nation. A decade later she retired from the investment business and joined a Seattle based staffing firm where serving as the Marketing Director, she nominated her company and won a 1993 Entrepreneur of the Year award as well as a Mayor's Small Business award. In 1996 Heidi co-founded a large marketing & advertising agency, Creative Connections NW, where she worked closely with a large cadre of Seattle's veteran marketing professionals. She brings 37 years of award-winning business and marketing expertise to BigDogRealty.com. Heidi launched her real estate career in 1998 and since then her savvy marketing skills have been instrumental in many record-setting sales. Affiliated now with Coldwell Banker Danforth and their Global Luxury program, Heidi offers tremendous experience and resources to her clients.
