Heaven Lee Porteous began working in the Dallas real estate industry in 2015 and joined Iconic Real Estate as soon as the doors opened. Heaven grew up in New York and graduated summa cum laude from the St. Univ. of NY @New Paltz with a degree in Theater Art. After traveling and working in New Orleans, Chicago, London, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, she landed in Dallas ‘as soon as she could’. After a successful career change from the performing arts to teaching and later marketing, she transitioned into a home design role she had been playing since early childhood when she remodeled rooms of her family’s old Victorian while her parents were on vacations in the summers. While under the tutelage of builders, developers and brokers, she obtained her license immediately to be uniquely involved in a home's story from a ‘napkin drawing’ conception to point of sale. Heaven’s home building family, The Avant Group, is the subsidiary of a very well established accounting/investment firm with several of its members actively involved in the financial and operational aspects of construction. Surrounded by experienced professionals in business, home building and brokering, she has an eye for what to look for and an ear to the ground for where to find it.
