Heather Wright blends optimism, realism and professionalism with an unending tenacity for client accessibility to define her career. With seemingly unstoppable energy, in the past year, she sold $5 million dollars in real estate, starred in a DIY Network remodeling show and purchased one of the most gorgeous old homes in the city of Plattsburgh… not necessarily in that order. She is fierce in her determination to be great at her career, calling upon her open, infectious enthusiasm and her true grit to make a successful living. Peeling back a few layers, you’ll find a history buff with a particular obsession with the Victorian era. Heather is people-centric, engaging and bright with old-school, old-soul charm.
What important lessons have you learned in your career?
I have learned that no two situations are ever the same and you need to treat every single person with empathy, compassion and understanding. You never know what someone is going through. And you need to listen. Not always talk.
What’s the most exciting trend happening in the community right now?
An infusion of youth and creativity!! I am seeing so much downtown activity in the 16 years I’ve lived in Plattsburgh. The art and music scene is constantly evolving, in addition to the vivacity of the restaurants downtown with outdoor seating, live entertainment, family activities and historical events. Also, I am witnessing a fresh group of younger people getting involved in politics and participating in boards and committees. It makes my heart smile.
What’s your dream job?
I’m in it. I cannot really imagine doing anything other than what I do.
