Member Profile

Nancy Heer

Nancy grew up in Central California living on a ranch with horses, sheep, cattle, chickens and all the other farm animals.  She feels it was truly a great way of being raised, and with relatives nearby who all were great athletes she became involved in track, softball, volleyball & basketball at an early age.

Nancy moved to southern California after high school to attend California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks where she participated on the track and field team.  After graduating with a Fine Arts BA degree & minor in Psychology in 1986, she moved to Huntington Beach to begin her career.  After a brief stint working at a gallery her commercial real estate career began after she moved to Honolulu, where she worked for a Property management company.


She moved to Oregon in January of 1991, and it was snowing at the time.  Nancy was not sure it was the right move at the time, but now she truly loves Oregon and it is home.  She began her banking career at Bank of America working in downtown Lake Oswego and has been in the industry ever since.  Nancy is active in continuing education and graduated from Pacific Coast Banking School at the University of Washington in 2005.


At Wells Fargo she serves as the Senior Real Estate Industry Specialist where she oversees the state of Oregon & Southwest Washington and supports the Business Banking Group.  She works with Relationship Managers and Business Development officers as a partner on Commercial real estate investor properties.  As the industry specialist she handles all facets of the financing and manages a portfolio of assets that include hotels, Multi-family, retail, office, industrial mix-use properties and construction lending.  Nancy truly enjoys working with local developers and investors on projects in the state and throughout the west coast.


Nancy is very active in the community and has acted as the past president of the board of directors of Serendipity Center, a therapeutic K-12 school.  She has been on the board for past four years serving on the executive committee, is the past chair of the annual gala dinner event and is a member of the capital projects committee and fundraising committee.  She has also been involved as a member and past president of CREW since 2000 serving on a variety of committees including golf chair, corkscrew committee and sponsorship committee and is currently a member of the programs committee along with the other fabulous committee members.


Nancy has been married to her husband Paul for 12 years( a native Oregonian) and they have a very fun and spoiled Lasha Apso, Tetley, who turned 8 years old on July 4th. They take him on as many trips as they can and he has definitely earned his doggie frequent flyer miles with over 25 flights.  Nancy and her husband love to travel to warm tropical places in the fall and winter and enjoy the Northwest summers golfing with their friends at WVCC.  She loves to garden and grows wonderful vegetables and flowers, as she enjoys making arrangements.  Cooking is a delight of Nancy’s that is a stress reliever, along with Pilates and jogging.  Nancy is a member of an investment club with wonderful ladies in Lake Oswego and enjoys her monthly meetings to go over their stock portfolio and catch up over a glass of wine.

July Program Recap

Beautiful Addition to Portland's Skyline and Economic Recovery
By: Paul Watts, Founder/CEO, Grafitti Removal Services

At July’s CREW member’s luncheon, we were treated to the exciting news of how and TMT Development was progressing on Park Avenue West, the new building at the corner of SW Park Avenue and 9th.


Park Avenue West Tower will be a 30-story, 546,000 square foot mixed-use development in the heart of Portland’s Central Business District. Portland’s newest tower will include 13 stories of Class A office space, 15 floors of residential units, and feature unobstructed, 360-degree views from virtually every floor.  Park Avenue West Tower takes a comprehensive approach to sustainability, and has secured pre-construction LEED Platinum certification with the U.S. Green Building Council.


The tower, which is certified LEED Platinum, will be the most environmentally-friendly building in Oregon, surpassing Platinum designation.  It was designed to reduce potable water by 40 percent, cut energy costs by 32 percent and features Portland’s first 40,000 gallon rain harvesting tank.


Vanessa Sturgeon, president and CEO of TMT Development, explained some of the great amenities the new tower will offer and how her family works with local contractors and local vendors to bring this new building very local.


Vanessa emphasized the importance of having a local contractor build the towers and explained that Hoffman Construction was picked because of the long friendship and working relationship both families have had over the last 40 years.


When asked how the elevators will cope with the heavy traffic of people and long lines waiting for the elevators, Vanessa explained that TMT Development has installed a state of the art elevator that will move at speeds of 1000 feet per minute.  Ladies and gentleman hang on to your coffees, this speed will get you to your destination faster than you can say “ what floor was I supposed to go to.”


Vanessa also announced that River Stone Property Managers will be managing the residential part of the building and TMT Development will be managing the commercial side.  One of the most exciting aspects of the new tower is that every floor will have 36” operational windows to let the Northwest sunlight in and give every floor a reason to be in a good mood.
