Here is a little bit about Heather & Learka… Heather and Learka have been partnered for so long some people don’t really know one without the other. The mix-ups and nicknames (all of which Learka’s husband finds highly amusing) are endless. ‘Hearka’ & ‘Leather’ and Heather’s last name being listed as ‘Anlairika’ are two fun ones. They officially teamed up in 2006 after more than a year of Heather begging Learka to do it. Together they have sold hundreds of millions of dollars in property, collected thousands of toys for Hollywood Fire Station 27, picked up several pounds of trash on the beach with Heal the Bay, championed causes and political candidates, and have seen an insane number of properties throughout Los Angeles, the country, and around the world. They started their careers at Coldwell Banker, were recruits #5 and #6 at Teles Properties, and were there until Teles was acquired by Douglas Elliman a few weeks shy of their tenth anniversary. Though they joke it was all an industrywide plot to avoid giving them gold watches, being part of one of the most significant real estate mergers in the country was a natural fit. Plus, getting Heather and Learka to go to New York to check in at DE headquarters on Madison Avenue or London to see their Knight-Frank colleagues requires much less than an arm twist. They have many happy clients from work throughout California, New York, Australia, Hawaii, the Coastal Carolinas, South Africa and of course Los Angeles, they have touching and glowing recommendations, but their best endorsement comes from Learka’s daughter Maxine, who is also Heather’s goddaughter. She says they are “the best at houses and work” and “get houses for everyone.” What could be more important than that?
