Who We Are

Every home is special, and every client is unique. Whether you’re buying or selling a home, the Petrone Team can help you find just the right fit.

Airy, Montgomery and Bucks counties, and New Jersey.


Four generations of the Petrone family have been in the East Falls area since the 1850s. Originally family owned and operated, this real estate brokerage was founded in 1975 by Joseph D. Petrone Sr. and has been in the same location ever since. The team is now proud to be part of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach network, a company with over 60 offices throughout the region all with the mission of helping people achieve the dream of home ownership in an ethical, professional, innovative and caring way.

Heather was recently elected as the Pennsylvania Association of Realtors district vice president for Region 1, which encompasses all of Philadelphia County. A member of the Greater Philadelphia Association of Realtors, she has been consistently active in a variety of leadership roles with GPAR since 2004, including as a two-time president. In 2007, Heather was installed as the youngest president in the history of the association and was awarded the Boyd T. Barnard Realtor of the Year Award. She is an instructor for real estate pre-licensure courses and mandatory continuing education.
