Heather Hafner

Realtor® | Certified Residential Specialist

A little about me...

A licensed Iowa REALTOR® since 1996 and with a broker’s license since 2005, Heather is a member of the National and Iowa Associations of REALTORS ® and currently holds a director’s position with the East Central Iowa Association of REALTORS®. Heather has earned a CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), the highest credential awarded to residential sales agents. She also has a bachelor’s degree in communications and a master’s degree in English.

Heather grew up around real estate. Her father, whose career spanned 50 years in the Maquoketa, Iowa market, was a big influence on her decision to become a realtor. She was taught and lives by her dad’s philosophy that your word and your reputation are the foundation for your business success. Heather knows what it takes to gain her clients’ trust and to satisfy their real estate needs – hard work and honesty.

A native of Maquoketa, she is devoted to seeing her community succeed by volunteering her time and energy as a member of the city’s Planning & Zoning Committee and the Comprehensive Planning Committee. She is also a member of the Maquoketa Chamber of Commerce, the Athletic Booster Club and the Christian Education Committee for the First Lutheran Church.

When she isn’t helping clients with their real estate needs, or supporting the community through committee work, Heather and her husband Bryan work as a team raising their two children, Laney and Charlie. Heather also enjoys spending time with family, the outdoors, reading, sports, movies “and whatever my kids are into.”
