Heather Martel caught the real estate bug early and attended her first real estate summit before graduating from high school. Four years later she purchased her first house, which led to another which she successfully flipped for a 43% ROI. From then on she was hooked.

Meantime her curiosity and passion for learning led her to earn her Masters of Education leadership from the University of Michigan which she used to bring innovation and new learning methodologies to schools.

In 2014 Heather decided to take a leap of faith and pursue real estate full time. She founded Rove Investments that specialized in real estate investments to serve the short-term rental market (an exploding sector thanks to AirBNB) and has now expanded into the commercial sector.

Heather has been passionate about blockchain technology and its application to commercial real estate. An incredible networker and connector of people, Heather met Julie by chance on the other side of a commercial deal she was working on and was already meeting regularly with Mustafa to explore the application of Blockchain technology in commercial real estate.

Over lunch at a restaurant in Ann Arbor called Freds, Julie and Heather founded projectFRED, and within a week Mustafa, the third founder was brought into the fold. When not exploring blockchain technology, transacting real estate deals or meeting new people, Heather loves to bike, hike, run, windsurf and sail. She also acts with a local theater group, volunteers with local charities.
