About Me

Here is a little bit about Heather & Learka…
Heather and Learka have been partnered for so long some people don't really know one without the
other. The mix-ups and nicknames (all of which Learka's husband finds highly amusing) are endless.
'Hearka' & 'Leather' and Heather's last name being listed as 'Anlairika' are two fun ones. They
officially teamed up in 2006 after more than a year of Heather begging Learka to do it. Together
they have sold hundreds of millions of dollars in property, collected thousands of toys for
Hollywood Fire Station 27, picked up several pounds of trash on the beach with Heal the Bay,
championed causes and political candidates, and have seen an insane number of properties
throughout Los Angeles, the country, and around the world. They started their careers at Coldwell
Banker, were recruits #5 and #6 at Teles Properties, and were there until Teles was acquired by
Douglas Elliman a few weeks shy of their tenth anniversary. Though they joke it was all an industrywide plot to avoid giving them gold watches, being part of one of the most significant real estate mergers in the country was a natural fit. Plus, getting Heather and Learka to go to New York to
check in at DE headquarters on Madison Avenue or London to see their Knight-Frank colleagues
requires much less than an arm twist. They have many happy clients from work throughout
California, New York, Australia, Hawaii, the Coastal Carolinas, South Africa and of course Los
Angeles, they have touching and glowing recommendations, but their best endorsement comes from
Learka's daughter Maxine, who is also Heather's goddaughter. She says they are "the best at houses
and work" and "get houses for everyone." What could be more important than that?

Learka was born in Switzerland, lived outside of Boston from ages 6-18, attended Barnard College at
Columbia University, studied in Sydney, and received her law degree from Suffolk in Boston. She
worked on political campaigns in Cambridge, MA, and London, taught English in Japan, worked for
the Mercer in New York, and moved to Los Angeles to work for actress Meg Ryan. The real estate
roots in her family run deep; her great-grandfather built the Greeley Arcade across from Penn
Station in NYC. The building was later part of the Realty Corp. run by her grandmother Edna
Lemle, who attended Barnard and was one of the first women to study at the London School of
Economics. Learka has served on the board of the Realty Corp. and advised on real estate holdings.
In addition to real estate, Learka loves food culture. She may be a one trick pony in the kitchen with
her legendary leg of lamb but she's had guinea pig in Peru, can order sushi in Japanese, and is very
grateful to live adjacent to the famed Mozzaplex. She's parlayed that food love into an eight-year
Sous Chef sponsorship for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for pediatric cancer research funding
and years of support for See LA, the organization behind many of Los Angeles' farmer markets that
also funds EBT produce purchases and nutrition education. You can find her most Sunday
mornings with her husband Zack, a sports PR pro, and their daughter Maxine at the Hollywood or
Studio City Farmers Markets. She also skis any chance she can get, loves the Red Sox, and adores
her rescue dogs Foxie and Alfie.
