Heather Winham, a SoCal native who has lived in the East Bay for more than 30 years and now resides in Discovery Bay, began her real estate career in 2016. She worked as a mortgage lender for over two years before earning her real estate license, and since then, she has partnered in 50-70 transactions per year.
Heather learned the importance of discipline and perseverance at a young age, working as a dancer, performer, actor, and later as an award-winning choreographer. She constantly pushes herself to reach beyond her potential, bringing the passion that has fueled her to succeed throughout her life to her role as Partner at Prosper Real Estate. Heather’s mission is to do right by her clients by listening to their needs and going above and beyond to help them achieve their real estate goals. She treats each person she meets with respect and builds every relationship on trust.
Before entering the industry, Heather had amassed expertise in diverse fields. She founded a successful performing arts academy in Brentwood in 2000, which is still thriving today. There, she honed her communication and leadership skills, encouraging students of all ages to pursue their dreams. During her career at BDS Marketing, she was the No. 1 salesperson in North America. Being in charge of sales, training, and product management for Cannon and Beats by Dre gave her the strong negotiation skills that she now uses in the service of her clients. Heather also credits her early career as a medical assistant with her ability to listen, understand, and anticipate others’ needs through kindness and compassion.
In addition to being the mother of two girls and two boys, Heather helped raise her brother’s three children — one of whom has autism. Her current partner’s daughter has Angelman Syndrome, and this personal connection has inspired Heather to support others in the community with disabilities through fundraising and volunteering. She is especially devoted to helping clients whose families have special needs find homes that fit their unique situations.
