Team reviews

My wife and I have had an excellent experience working with Gary and Mary. This is our first home so we were nervous about the whole process. Gary and Mary answered any questions we had. The fact that they are able to work so closely together means they are very effective. The loan and rate are better than we expected and I was informed the entire time. I would feel very comfortable recommending 1 Stop Realty to my family and friends.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Enoree, SC.

I am new to the area, and, upon deciding to start looking for a rental place for short term accommodations, to be followed by a search for a home, i met many negative responses from property owners and realtors. Gary was different in that although he also did not think there was much opportunity for a short term rental, he and his partner took the time to meet with my wife and I to first figure out what we wanted short term and long term, and then explaining what the limitations were, and promising to look at some potential option, which he did. He found us a nice short term rental, and also worked to find us a home. We recently moved into the home, and would have had a much harder time, and probably would have ended up paying more, had Gary not been there to guide us through the many wickets, from dealing with the Seller, to finding a good bank for the Mortgage, Lawyer for closing, Insurance agent for Mortgage insurance, contractors to perform inspections and do some necessary repair activities. in a nutshell, Gary's Realty knowledge and professionalism were invaluable assets to my wife and i, and i would not only recommend him to family / friends, but would not hesitate to call on him for further real estate needs / questions. Regards, Ken Whitten

It was a pleasure working with you. My wife Mary and I truly enjoyed being able to service you and your new Bride! We have truly tried to provide a " Stop Shop" that can offer finance, real estate and property management . We are not only glad that we have been able to help another client but also feel we have gained another friend. Gary and Mary Heinecke

Bought a home in 2014 in Jackson Mill, Startex, SC 29385.

I owe so much to this wonderful man and his wife! I'm a single mom and I have worked so hard to overcome a turbulent past to provide a stable life for my kids. We moved from rental to rental throughout their lives and I never thought it possible to have our own place to call home. I actually contacted Gary about a rental and he asked why not buy. I laughed at the idea thinking it would be impossible...but with this real estate hero, it wasnt. Gary and his wife took their time, going above and beyond, to rework my credit and finances making it possible for me to be a first time homeowner. I have not just a house, but a BEAUTIFUL home for my little family. This is the most compassionate and caring couple I have ever met! It wasn't about money for them, it was about making my dream come true...and they did. I urge anyone, good credit or bad, to seek out Gary for your real estate needs. It will be the best experience filled with laughter, possibly tears, and always a happily ever after!

OH my goodness Deanna- For the first time in years I am speechless. (of course my wife will be happy ). This is such a beautiful and heartfelt review. This business is full of trials and tribulations and in today's finance world encouragement such as yours will keep us smiling and give us the incentive to continue our quest to educate, assist buyers with credit challenges and create deserving homeowners such as yourself. You really made our day!! God Bless!!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Spartanburg, SC.

I had no knowledge of the real estate business and it was my first time that I wanted to buy a home. Gary and his wife, Mary took the time to help me understand it and they found my 1st dream home for myself and my family in a timely fashion. This company is exactly what it is...a 1 Stop Realty! Thank God for Gary and Mary for their professional business. I would highly recommend this company to anyone serious about finding their first or next home!

This is the second opportunity I've had to work with Gary Heineke and 1Stop Realty. Having all our needs met by one person and one company aha made the entire process so much easier. Gary was in our corner and able assist in finding our perfect home, negotiating for us to make it happen. We couldn't be happier with our overall experience. I would highly recommend Gary and 1Stop Realty to meet all of your needs when buying a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Inman, SC.

Gary and Mary Heinecke made our wish of being homeowners come true. After years of disappointment, we had almost given up. Gary went above and beyond to help us clean things up on our credit that we thought were impossible. He and his team worked very hard for us and we are extremely grateful.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Inman, SC.

First, we would like to thank Mary and Gary for all the support they have given throughout our ordeal (which is still 2 weeks away from ending). They have been very supportive and provided us with tremendous advice.

We met by chance and it has become a very beneficial professional relationship as well as a needed friendship. At first we did not think we would need someone to help in buying a house. We had a realtor selling our place and felt we could handle the new one ourselves. Even without a formal contract, Mary and Gary took the time to guide us through our search. We are talking tens of hours of their time without any obligations. It became very apparent we needed the professional help they both could provide. I even asked for advice from them on the place we were selling. They provided the professional help even though they were not involved financially. This helped us make the best decisions possible for both selling and buying.

As stated, this is not over, but we are in good hands and can see the finish line. Again, we thank Mary and Gary from the bottom of our hearts and would recommend their services to anyone. We not only have gained an understanding of the business, but feel we have gained a friendship. Thanks you Mary and Gary Heinecke!

Julie and Van- The feeling is mutual. We are so glad that you have given us the opportunity to work with you, find you a home and help with the finance. Although this is our chosen profession and time consuming, working with both you is not really work. We love guiding people through these important decisions and as you said we have been quite fortunate to cross each others paths which have led us to a new friendship. Thank you again for the kind words. Gary and Mary Heinecke

Bought a home in 2014 in Holly Hill Heights, SC 29365.

Gary and Mary Heinecke are the best that you will find at what they do! As first time home buyers we were clueless in the beginning. We did not think that we were financially ready to buy a house, but with the help and non-stop dedication of this team our dreams became a reality! We were able to buy the home of our dreams and the best part is we didn't have to go 100 different places in the process! They worked countless hours helping us get our finances in order and getting our mortgage financed at the best rate possible! They were there for us..always there.. no matter what questions we had! Gary and Mary were only a phone call or short drive away! These are the kind of people that you want in your home buying process! You won't need to go anywhere else.. that's why 1 Stop Reality is the place to go!

Gary and Mary you will never know how much we appreciate you and all that you have done for us!

Bought a home in 2014 in Harveytown, Reidville, SC 29334.

Gary & Mary are extremely helpful and knowledgeable through out the entire process of buying a home. They have helped us find our dream home! The 1 Stop Realty is truly a unique concept and works in the best interests of the buyer. We are first time home buyers and buying a new home can be a intimidating experience. However, Gary & Mary have been amazing! They have went above and beyond our expectations. Not only did they help us find our dream home but they are also handling our mortgage. They have spent endless hours working to make sure that we get the mortgage financing that works best for us. Gary & Mary are not just your ordinary real estate agents and mortgage brokers they are in the business to make sure their customers dreams' are a reality.
