Days of our Lives fans know Heather Lindell for her playing the outlandish Jan Spears, but in addition to carving out a successful acting career, she has also done well-selling luxury real estate.
Heather Lindell’s Other Life
In a recent story that appeared in Forbes, the actress, who goes by Heather Boyd in her other career, detailed her life doing double duty as an actress and real estate broker.
“After a stint on Broadway in La Cage aux Folles from 2010 to 2011, I decided residential sales was a better fit for me. Specifically working with young families,” the actress told Forbes. She’s spent the past seven years at Hilton & Hyland, and has become a pro at matching her clients up with the right property, even during these challenging times, when the market is more competitive than ever,
“I’ve had my license for 15 years and originally was on the commercial side as something I did between acting gigs,” she said.
As an example of her success, Lindell recently found a prime 1930’s Spanish-style Glendale Hills home for a long-time client, and even though bidding became quite heated with 82 offers, she was able to structure her client’s offer to stand out. This, combined with communicating clearly with the listing broker, resulted in a winning bid for the client.
“My client is beyond happy, which of course makes me happy,” she said.
Working in Los Angeles has helped her stay abreast as to the best areas for real estate and she’s always had a passion for it. With the success she’s had, it seems to have been the right decision, and she notes her business has grown organically through client referrals.
