Heather Shimala


While originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Heather has spent over 25 years living in North Texas.  She is in the top 5% of real estate agents across Dallas and Fort Worth, and previously recognized by D Magazine as one of the best in the region.
Before real estate, Heather was a National Account Executive for a large Fortune 500 company. She regularly negotiated large contracts, conducted training sessions, and attended speaking engagements across the country. However, the toll of being away from her family so often weighed on her. Many suggested she try real estate, so once Heather decided to leave the corporate world behind and get her license, she never looked back. 
Since Heather grew up in California, she has ample connections there and regularly assists those relocating from California to Texas. These clients come from both agent-to-agent referrals and word of mouth. Anyone who works with Heather knows she is a dependable asset to their real estate journey. 
Service-oriented and tech-savvy, Heather utilizes the most cutting-edge technology and sophisticated marketing strategies to create a tech-oriented experience that is user-friendly and versatile. Heather and her team strive to make each transaction a genuinely enriching experience for her clients. Whether you’re hoping to move closer to your children or you’re looking for a place to settle down with your family, Heather is happy to work with all kinds of people from a range of price points. The relationship doesn’t end at the closing table!
Innovation, inclusivity, and relationship-building are the cornerstones of Heather’s business. She is committed to building long-lasting relationships with her clients. Connecting with people is the highlight of her work. Heather is often her client’s primary source for everything in town, from finding the right doctor to planning the perfect date night. She is proud of how many of her clients go on to become her friends. 
Part of the North Texas allure is the excellent culinary scene. As huge foodies, Heather and her husband, Jim, love sampling the trendiest eateries, especially places that serve cuisine she’s never tried before! 
At home, she and her husband Jim have three beautiful children. Their youngest, Patrick, is currently in middle school - Patrick thrives on the basketball court, riding a skateboard and loves all things sports. Her daughters, Lauren and Morgan, are presently attending the University of Oklahoma and Texas Tech, respectively. An avid traveler, Heather looks forward to taking quarterly trips with her family to explore and unwind in intriguing new places.
