DeWaal van Heerden
DeWaal van Heerden grew up with roots in the real estate profession. His mother was a Realtor, and seeing her excited about work every day instilled in him a passion for real estate and desire to pursue it as a profession.
DeWaal graduated from the Northwest University Potchefstroom in South Africa with a degree in business communications. During college, he began cooking for friends as a hobby. Soon, this hobby became much more, and after graduation, DeWaal started his own catering and events company, Live Wire Events. Through the experience and connections he gained, he soon got the opportunity to work as a private chef in the South of France. Work and travels eventually brought him to the United States where he predominantly worked as a private chef in Florida for numerous high-profile and celebrity clients.
In 2014, DeWaal decided to leave the culinary world and pursue a career in real estate. He moved to Denver and joined Nostalgic Homes as a broker associate. And, in January 2016, DeWaal joined Michael Madsen’s team. DeWaal is proud to call himself a co-founder of MODE Real Estate. This has been a dream of DeWaal and Michael’s, and became a reality in 2019.
With an extensive background in the service industry, DeWaal’s approach to real estate is focused on being an agent that his clients can rely on and trust. He believes in serving rather than selling his clients, and making the entire buying and selling process flawless for those he serves.
DeWaal is the father of two young girls who keep him on his toes all day long.
