Heather Benfield joined the Bloom Realty team as a REALTOR®, using her fondness and expertise of the historic areas of Jacksonville to assist buyers in the search for their home. She thrives on helping people become familiar with their neighborhood and all the benefits of living in a historic district. She specializes in the Riverside Avondale, Springfield, Murray Hill, and San Marco areas of Jacksonville.
A native of Texas, Heather lived up and down the East Coast before finding a home in Jacksonville, where she has resided for the last 10 years. Heather attended the University of North Florida, where she graduated summa cum laude with a degree in History and Art History. With an enthusiasm for the past, Heather found a love for the Riverside Avondale area, with its rich history, passionate residents, and high walkability scores.
She previously worked for Riverside Avondale Preservation and the Riverside Arts Market as programs manager, where she helped move the neighborhood forward with innovative initiatives. During this time she also personally hosted events like Picnic in the Park, and was awarded BUZZ Magazine's 30 Under 30 in 2014.
Heather resides in Murray Hill with her husband and two dogs. She enjoys daily bike rides, volunteering with local non-profits, gardening, and travel.
