Agents For Change: Meet Heather Hartley

0

Heather’s passion for architecture and design was literally bred into her. With a talented builder as her mother, Heather grew up frequenting open houses, salvage yards and job sites. After graduating from the Bryn Mawr School, she migrated south to Clemson University and eventually planted her roots in her second favorite city, Charleston, SC, becoming the art director for a children’s book publishing company. Heather enjoyed the creativity but felt unfulfilled sitting behind a desk. Craving a change, she often envisioned a career in real estate. In 2008, she returned to Baltimore with her Lowcountry love and now husband, Jared, and joined the Krauss team to pursue that calling. Heather does not think of real estate as sales; instead, she views it to be more like matchmaking. Impeccable listening skills and honest guidance allows her to build lasting relationships with her clients. Heather believes that strength in negotiating requires a delicate touch and has found great success infusing positivity and camaraderie into her transactions. A natural go-getter, she enjoys the opportunity to creatively seek out houses for her buyers. Real estate is Heather’s true passion, and she feels very blessed to wake up inspired every day.

Historic Pigtown bathhouse and fire station transformed into apartments, ground-floor café

Kim Lane likens Pigtown’s three blocks along Washington Boulevard to a barbell.

The weights down in the 700 block, closer to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, are the local shops that have served as the commercial core of the just-barely Southwest Baltimore neighborhood. Up in the 900 block, past a stretch of mostly row homes with addresses in the 800s, are more weights—newer ones—comprising newer businesses and organizations, including the Mobtown Ballroom, the year-old Suspended Brewing Company, the Hopkins-operated SPARC women’s health center and, soon, a three-story culinary workforce training outpost for the nonprofit Paul’s Place.

“Our work now is how to connect the two [sides], how to get people walking down here, flowing back and forth,” says Lane, executive director of Pigtown Main Street.
