Nora Martin, broker of record of RE/MAX Realty Group Rehoboth, said, “I had the honor of knowing Alma Ashley, and Heather is following in her footsteps. Heather has a high regard for the client relationship, works extremely hard for the property owners, and is loyal to her company and agents. Heather always goes above and beyond.
