Are you happy in your current career? Heather Henry owned her own mortgage company and worked as a REALTOR® seven years ago, successfully on both counts. But when the Senior Vice President of Sales at America’s Preferred Home Warranty (APHW) reached out with an opportunity, Heather realized she wasn’t actually happy. Things have changed a bit since then.
“Taking that leap is the most amazing thing I’ve ever done,” Heather said. “It sounded like a great company, and I would be effectively growing my own business. I thought it had to be too good to be true, and I was hesitant—but I’ll never forget taking some time off to visit Michigan and meet everybody.”
Those final interviews set a life changing career in motion for Heather as an APHW Area Sales Manager. “I absolutely love my job!” she exclaimed. “I mean, I really do! With the connections I’ve made and helping real estate professionals to build their business, and even throughout COVID—I have REALTORS® calling me more and more these days, because it’s just that relationship we’ve built. I’m not salesy; it’s just talking with them. That’s what I do, and I love it.”
Loving her job has clearly made a difference for Heather, as APHW recently recognized her as the Salesperson of the Year at their annual awards ceremony—the first female ever to achieve it! “It blew my mind! I was crying so hard I turned off my camera to compose myself,” Heather recalled, adding how they’d shown a video of her daughter and family to announce the award. “Brendan and Steve Pratt and everybody, they believed in me, and that was the important part.”
Heather believes in her heart that Brendan’s offer seven years ago was a God thing. “The Lord was giving me something. I was going to have to take a leap—and I just kind of let go,” she said. “It has been an amazing ride, and I am looking forward to many, many more years at APHW.”
