What is the one thing that your clients should
know about you?
I am 100 percent committed to my responsibility
whether purchase or sale. Real estate is my chosen
profession and my passion. I was proud to be recently
mentioned in The Wall Street Journal for brokering the
highest-priced condominium sale in our entire region.
It’s easy in this industry to be an order-taker—
you get a phone call and show a house—and I am
definitely not inclined that way. Expert negotiation is
essential, and I go above and beyond in my efforts for
clients. It’s an honor for me to assist people with the
biggest financial decision of their lives.
How would your clients describe you?
Here’s what several of my clients have said:
“You and I went through a war together, and I wanted
these words to reflect all of my admiration and love for
“My husband and I have been represented by Zelda
Heller three times now—buying, selling and buying.
We remain astounded at her almost mystical ability to
close a deal.”
“When Zelda Heller makes ‘a few calls’ on your behalf,
you won’t mistake the experience. I can still hear her
Rolodex furiously turning and her speaking to every
single person on our list (and hers) on a familiar, first-name basis in her elegant, South-African accent.”
“We entered this real estate market as complete outsiders, and have emerged, via Zelda, with the success
and profits of the best-connected insiders in DC.”
“Zelda’s credibility, reputation, integrity and goodwill
are reflected onto her clients.”
It’s an honor for me to assist people with the biggest
financial decision of their lives.” “
