Heather Bilyeu grew up in Las Vegas, but her aunt lived in Laguna Beach, California. Over holiday breaks and summers Heather would visit and Heather fell in love with the California lifestyle. “You’re just a few hours from the mountains, wine country, camping, etc.”
While Heather began her real estate career in Las Vegas and was a realtor for five years, after the market crashed she moved to Los Angeles and took a job as an assistant in order to learn the LA market.
Her advice for people in business is “confidence – don’t let them see you sweat; be an expert in what you do; dress the part; tell everyone what you do; and network/socialize” (thebravobitch.blogspot.co).
Heather Bilyeu also described herself as a tomboy “despite what you see on the show. I ride dirt bikes, snow board, play soccer, and go camping. I just love adventure and speed but will always be fashionable when doing it!”
After dating for nearly three years, she was recently engaged on the show (and in real life) to fellow castmate Josh Altman. She said, “If I’ve learned anything from Josh, it’s that you have to be aggressive and go for it.”
Heather Bilyeu is currently engaged and resides in Los Angeles, California where she is actively involved in selling high-end real estate.
