Get to know Heather Stevenson
Heather Stevenson, Real Estate Broker
Heather is an innovative outside-the-box thinker that is always striving to find the latest and best in everything she does. She is extremely detail-oriented, organized and is known as a perfectionist (although she prefers to think she just has high standards). Heather prides herself in her technology, communication and writing skills. Her very first real estate blog post was featured on Active Rain with several thousand views and comments. Heather also enjoys creating proprietary applications to help with organization and to keep up-to-date with clients and our real estate transactions. Her applications are often used as examples for others and she has sold some of her systems to others. But above all her philosophy in business is ‘clients first’.
Heather recently celebrated her 20th anniversary and enjoys being an active mother to her three teenage sons. She also owns several rental properties and is very familiar with real estate investments and management. If Heather is not working, you will probably find her at one of her son’s schools or at the Boy Scout cabin as she volunteers heavily for several local organizations. In 2010, Heather was featured in the Bellingham Herald’s ’10 Who Cared’ spotlight and quoted as being ‘tech-savvy’. Then in 2012 she was honored to receive the prestigious Volunteer of the Year for the Bellingham School District. Heather also received the PTA Golden Acorn award where scholarship money was donated in her name. She also enjoys photography and videography and has created 100s of videos for friends, family, scouts and schools. You will rarely see her without some kind-of technology in her hands, as she is always hungry for more knowledge and researching new ways to accomplish her tasks and goals.
Heather comes from a banking background and is an expert in customer service & organization. This gal has been a technology guru since she learned to walk. She has grown up in the world of technology, search engine optimization and website building. She can even write in HTML (who does that?)!

Heather is the consummate professional and a great realtor. We were very comfortable working with Heather who conducted our search while we were on the other side of the country, during, during the Covid pandemic. Heather was quick to bring suitable properties to our attention and researched properties that we were interested in. Heather tirelessly did video walkthroughs of properties, directed us to helpful resources and was instrumental in our choosing a lovely new home. Heather was quickly responsive to questions, was endlessly patient and exudes genuine friendly support and enthusiasm for her work! Heather knows Whatcom County, is detail oriented, and went above and beyond in her support. We highly recommend her as a realtor.

Everything I have discovered about buying/selling a home, I’ve learned from Heather, my referring seller’s agent who is helping me sell my mother’s home in another state. Heather is a patient, easy-to-understand, non-judgmental tutor! And she’s skillful at creating charts and graphs, market analysis reports, and bullet-point lists with all the data and details a client could want, to successfully close a deal.
Heather’s vast knowledge of the industry and market paired with her compassionate, dedicated service put her in a class by herself. I trust her judgment 100% and recommend her with zero hesitation.

Looking for a home is very stressful. We are so grateful to have Heather helping us through the whole process. She made things so easy for us. Created a timeline of dates and events. We knew she had our best interest. Heather always had time to answer questions, easy my fears. We were not just another customer. Even when family matters took her out of town, her laptop and phone were always with her ready to answer our inquiries. Once we got our keys, she made sure that everything went the way it was supposed to. Thank you, Heather. Love my house. Now we are making it our home

I would give 100 stars if I could! Heather is top-notch! We needed to sell our house quickly and had no idea what we were doing. She walked us through every step of the way during the listing /closing and provided great communication. She is extremely professional, detail-oriented, and has a great system down. Heather's photos and drone footage were amazing! Within two weeks we had multiple offers to choose from. I honestly would recommend her above and beyond anyone for Sudden Valley, Bellingham, Whatcom County, and anywhere else!

Heather was so helpful in helping my mom sell her home as quickly and efficiently as possible. She spent time explaining things to my mom and getting to know her. I found Heather Stevenson through a social worker at the hospital, who knew my mom needed to move to a new home. From the beginning, Heather kept me in the loop via text, email, and phone. I really don't think it could have happened as fast and flawlessly without her help!! Thank you, Heather.

She cares about the community like no other and will go out of her way to make you feel a part of one. Heather Stevenson is the right choice if you want a thorough job!

I hired Heather because I knew her from her volunteer work at the local schools, I knew she was super detail-oriented and that she really cares about the people around her. Heather was amazing through the whole process of determining our needs and goals to showing properties to researching the house that we decided to purchase. She has all the details worked out with our very own private website that has a calendar, copies of all the paperwork, email/text reminders, deadlines, details, and more. It is an incredible system that I’ve never heard of or seen before. I really appreciated all her dedicated time to us, we felt that we were her only clients. Thank you, Heather!

I am originally from Bellingham and when I decided to make the move back here, I needed to know the real estate stats to make sure that I got a fair price in this crazy market. Heather knows her stats and showed me all the numbers and charts that helped me know that I paid the right price for my house. I am so happy that I made the move home and into my perfect house! Heather was amazing through the whole process and is very detail-oriented and explained each and every paragraph of the purchase and sale agreement. Her knowledge of real estate and the buying/selling process is incredible.

I had to sell my home due to a death in the family and I am so glad that I hired Heather Stevenson to help me through this painful time. She was sensitive and caring while being informative and making sure that everything went as smoothly as possible. Not only does she understand real estate and the process but she is very sensitive to your needs and actively listens and helps from helping you make decisions to getting ready for photos, showings, inspection, appraisal all the way to closing.

Heather helped me navigate the entire process of getting my home ready to sell, what to expect when it was active, how to handle competing offers and through the pending process all the way to closing. She kept me informed throughout the entire process and made sure that everything was completed properly and on time. She really knows the market and can inform you about real estate trends. I highly recommend Heather Stevenson.

Heather was a dream agent. She walked me through the entire step of the way and made me feel confident about the process. I appreciated her knowledge and the way she alleviated my anxiety. She is incredibly detailed and that detail helped me save money and we were able to put together a deal quickly as the market was very dynamic at the time. She was very responsive and available. I cannot recommend her enough.

Heather really helped us explain everything step-by-step when we didn't understand what was going on during different stages of the process. The Client Portal she developed was an excellent idea. We felt we could take our time and make a good decision.
