Heidi was born and educated in Germany. Her job in the travel and airline industry, Hapag-Lloyd in Duesseldorf and Berlin, took her to Honolulu in 1969, where she met her husband Steve. Her real estate career started in 1980 on Maui and after moving to Kaua'i in 1982 she joined Sleeping Giant Realty which is today Oceanfront Sotheby's International Realty. Heidi has an exceptional level of market knowledge, accumulated over her 38 years in real estate, while selling residential and commercial properties. Heidi sees herself more as a real estate matchmaker than a salesperson matching her clients with the right property. She is proud that the majority of her clientele is made of referrals and repeat clients. In her free time, Heidi enjoys the company of her husband, her Great Dane "Nui" and her Black Lab "Buddie". She also loves playing tennis as often as possible.
