Hi there! I'm Heather, Realtor in SoMD & VA

Do you believe in coincidences? Because I think you landed here for a reason, and I’m so excited to have you! My name is Heather Cooksey, and I am currently serving the Southern Maryland and Virginia real estate market. I’ve had the pleasure of helping families and friends close on the home of their dreams, and have dedicated my life to ensuring the growth of our communities is done in a way that affects us positively.

welcome home

I am the agent that does things differently

I could sit here and bore you, saying I have strong negotiating skills, local market knowledge, and so forth – and of course, I do – but one thing I want to share with you, the thing that is the most important tool I can provide you in your home sale or purchase is my passion.

I didn’t get into the industry to make money. I got into the industry because I fell in love with it. I fell in love with homes, the character each one had, and the beautiful people I got to help transition from one to another. I fell in love with hearing people’s stories, really getting to know their needs for their futures, and focusing on ensuring you found a home that actually met those future goals.

Real estate can be a stressful thing, moving out of a home you’ve known for years can be hard, and it can be harder if you don’t have someone to partner with who doesn’t take the time to understand that.

" Equipped with her knowledge in the business, determination in her work ethic, and earned respect by her peers, Heather makes an outstanding Real Estate Professional."

What To Expect When Working With Me...

A luxury, proven real estate system combined with a low pressure, friendly approach. 

Communication.   I tailor our comunication style to fit your needs. 

Professionalism.  I want this experience to be fun and laid back, but of course utilizing my professional background to get the job done.

If there’s one thing I bring to the table is passion for my career.  I am full time real estate & you will not find someone who loves their job the way I do.

Pet Peeves


As my client, you might hear me complain a time or two about agents who don’t answer the phone.

My Life's


The Hood I Call


I currently call La Plata, Maryland home.  I’ve lived here my entire 30 years of life and don’t plan on going anywhere anytime soon. 😉

My Real Estate


Something about a cozy feel, lot’s of fireplaces, a screened in porch and land really makes me swoon.

After Hours


When I’m not working you’ll find me at the gym, spending time with friends or trying to herd my 3 year old and keep her from injuring herself.

My Happy


There’s no place that helps me unwind better than spending an hour or two at the gym, followed by a nice sauna session and then spending the rest of the day with my kiddo.




Walk-In Pantries

Wrap Around Porch

Heated Bathroom Floor Tile





Lack of natural light.

No bathtub in the house
