Associate Broker Heather Buchanan is Jeff Buchanan’s other half and says that together they followed God’s lead to build Buchanan Realty from the ground up.
They have a passion for serving people with uncompromising integrity, and that way of doing business has resulted in outstanding, like-minded agents joining them in their mission to put the needs of their clients above themselves to offer the highest caliber of service.
Originally from Baytown, Texas, Heather is a licensed attorney who left her law practice in Houston for a job in the Pineywoods as a local TV news anchor. Her adventures while reporting on a 15-county area gave her unique insight and knowledge of the various communities, and the people she met along the way made her fall in love with East Texas. She says she considers it a privilege to raise her family in such a wonderful community filled with clean air, gorgeous lakes, miles of towering pine trees, incredible schools, great baseball, and the kindest people anywhere!
Heather believes that God is always preparing you for what comes next, and says the fact that she uses her legal background and experience as a local news anchor every day is proof of that. While she is no longer actively practicing law, her knowledge of the intricacies of contracts and other facets of real estate law give her clients a distinct advantage. Her connections and roots in the community through both her time as a news anchor and her many hours of community service give her the know-how to guide her clients in virtually every situation.
Heather works to ensure the quality of the local practice of real estate by serving on the Board of Directors of the Lufkin Association of Realtors (“LAR”). In addition to serving on the board, she has been on various committees for the organization including two special committees that were tasked with rewriting both the Policies & Procedures and the Bylaws of the Association. She is currently the Chairperson for the committee responsible for overseeing those important documents and is further helping direct the future of LAR by serving on the Strategic Planning Committee.
Heather is also very involved in the community and supports our local teachers and students by serving on the Board of Directors for the Lufkin ISD Education Foundation, of which she is a founding member and served as President in 2015.
She has also served on the Kurth Memorial Library Board and volunteered as a HOSTS mentor, helping enhance the reading skills of children. She and her family enjoy volunteering to assist with the Lufkin Rotary Club’s Waffle Bake each year and ringing the bell for the Salvation Army at Christmas.
Jeff and Heather have two teenage sons, Chip and Blake, and Heather loves serving as the team mom for their various sports teams, including the Little League Baseball World Series National Champions, Lufkin’s Thundering Thirteen.
Heather and her family also serve in various ministries at their church, Timber Creek Church of Lufkin, of which they have been members for 20 years. She considers real estate an extension of that ministry, and she and Jeff conduct their business in accordance with Biblical principles.
Heather’s warm, outgoing personality makes her a joy to work with, and her outstanding design and staging skills lead to quick sales and happy clients. She would love for you to be her next happy client and would consider it her honor to assist you. Whether you are buying or selling, she can help, so give Heather a call today!
