I am originally from Salt Lake City. I moved to the beautiful coastline of Mendocino, California in 2003. Some of my best memories come from some old dirt roads in Mendocino. As a rock and nature lover, I loved the beautiful state of Utah, but my entrepreneurial dreams called me to relocate to a more progressive state such as California. Although I moved over a decade ago, I continue to support organizations in Utah such as The Wasatch Gem & Mineral Society and The Utah Rock Hound Gem & Mineral Club.
Shortly after moving to California, I started my first business from the ground up in agriculture, where I learned all the major components of running a business including marketing, sales, customer service and accounting, to name just a few.
In 2003, still attempting to fill my thirst for the love of nature, I decided to attend College of the Redwoods and graduated in 2005 with an Associate Degree in Science. I also achieved a Natural History Certification. These hands on classes filled my head with tons of knowledge of soil composition, organic gardening techniques and plant identification. In 2009, I decided to pursue my creative passions and began making jewelry and opened Coast Jewelry Designs with an online Etsy shop, which to this day continues to earn a flawless 5-star rating from my customers.
For me, excellent customer service and maintaining relationships is the core of my success. While working as a travel agent, I was awarded on numerous occasions for my superior customer service skills. I was in the top 10% of Holland Americas sales agents. I am a hard-working, diligent, loyal, and a natural problem solver who is dedicated to meeting my client’s needs through leadership, clear communication, professionalism, and a can-do attitude. Although I don’t claim to have all the answers, my confidence and determination will keep my clients raving.
After 15 years of entrepreneurism, I have decided it was time for a new journey and I moved to Grass Valley to pursue a career in real estate, where I will be able to combine my extensive knowledge of business, my love for the land, and passion for helping people. I thrive in providing my clients with clear and professional guidance through some of the most important transactions in their lifetime. My true joy is found in making my clients’ dreams of land, home, and business ownership a reality. My commitment to produce results that satisfy above and beyond is always my goal.
When I am not working you’ll probably find me spending time with my two young daughters. Having spent my earlier years driven by my career, I waited to have children. Today I strive more than ever to maintain a work/life balance in order to give my children everything they deserve from a mom, which even more-so than material necessities, is my time. When I have free time away from my children, I enjoy spa days with girlfriends, and long walks at the park with my dog.
If you’re looking for an agent who is dedicated, sincere, knowledgeable, and client-focused, look no further. My high standards of excellence before, throughout and even after each transaction far surpass others in the industry. With Heather Stoddard you haven’t just found an agent, you’ve found a friend.
