Bought a home in 2013.
Our experience with Gary & Mary has been truly exceptional. They are a fantastic team and have a tremendous amount of knowlege about the area around Spartanburg, the market opportunities, what neighborhoods are safe & growing, in addition to local markets & restaurants. They have been incredibly responsive to our requests, answering each and every concern, and have stayed in touch throughout the process. They have done this in both a friendly & professional manner. I would not hesitate to recommend their service to anyone who is considering buying or selling property. Thanks for all your help!

Andrew and Jane- We are looking forward to assisting you with the process of building a new home and truly enjoyed our time together. Upon meeting your daughter the first time before we had the opportunity to meet both you and Jane there was no question that she will be successful and that she has been brought up in a caring and loving environment with strong family values. It is, has been and will be our pleasure to work with you now and in the future. Thank you for the kind review! Gary and Mary Heinecke

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Moore, SC.
My name is Jordan. Gary and Mary Heinecke were both extremely professional, very understanding, caring, and patient with us. They were able to understand our wants and needs and translated that into the house we were looking for. They were patient because I worked in Georgia at the time and my wife is in Medical School and would be available only via phone or email. No matter what, they will give you their opinion based the area and possible resale value of each home and will leave it up to you to decide. I've already recommended them to 2 other families who are in the area looking to purchase.

Having "One-Stop Reality" was extremely easy for us in that they made the real-estate to financing transition extremely seamless and the team they have working with them, Anna and Rob, were very courteous and professional, as well. Not to mention, Mary negotiated a great deal for us by meeting all of our request and needs financially and then Gary helped us get locked in on an EXTREMELY low financing rate.

Overall,I was and still am very impressed with how receptive they were to me and my wife and how helpful they were. Still 100% satisfied 6 months later and would definitely use them again if the need occurs.

We had a blast showing you homes and we look forward to serving you in any way we can. It was truly our pleasure to help the two of two find your first home together and we are so very glad that you have enjoyed the neighborhood you purchased in. Thank you again for the kind words.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Lyman, SC.
My name is Corey, I walked into Gary and Mary's office about a week and a half ago. I didn't know what to expect hence being a first time home buyer, so i laid all of my trust onto the table. I'd like to think there are still people in this world that still care about the person standing in front of them instead of what they can get from their wallet. Both Gary and Mary restored this hope for me, they truly cared. Any corporate broker or bank would have laughed in my face when i said i wanted a loan, but Gary worked with it and made it happen. Fast forward about a week, my family found the house we wanted. They took care of everything, took away all the stress and uncertainty and now the process is almost over. Sincerely, if you're looking to buy or sell, don't think twice about who you want in your corner. Chances are since you're reading my review, you're already considering. Pick up your phone and call today!

Corey- From the moment you called us to inquire about our "1 Stop Services" we knew that you were a gentleman and a person of your word. We always try our best to provide the paramount in service but everytime we meet we do not feel as if we are working but helping a "friend". Your daughter and family are always welcome here and we are looking forward to getting you into your 1st home with as little "red tape" as possible. We thank you so much for the kind words and words of encouragement. There are times that this business and the Government regulations and oversite of the finance industry can really wear you down. Thanks for putting the "Spring back in our Step". The reason we so enjoy this business is because of the joy and excitement that is genenrated from well deserving hardworking and caring people like you.Mary and Gary Heinecke

Showed home in 2012 in Boiling Springs, SC.
Gary and Mary Heinecke have been so friendly and helpful during the process of becoming first-time homeowners. My Husband and I have just returned to SC from TX where he was stationed in the Army. We have found it very hard for someone to even try to help us because of poor credit. Not Gary he jumped right on it, making phone calls to the collection agencies we needed to pay off to make it possible for us to become homeowners! His Wife Mary is very sweet, she handles the Real Estate aspect of their business and is good with kids. We haven't started looking yet, but she has been helpful by trying to pin-point our likes and dislikes in our new home. Our journey has just started and without Gary and Mary Heinecke I doubt it would be possible. They are honest and real people, if you need any assistance with Mortgages, Refinance, or Real Estate I would recommend the Heineckes!

Dear Gary and Amy, It is Mary and I that are thankful for everything your husband and you have had to endure while protecting the United States. No one truly realizes the heartache, and difficult times that anyone in the service has to endure. Our Government should truly take care of our own and for what you have had to go through after giving so much of yourselves but yet they don't. It is our honor and pleasure to help you both on your journey to becoming homeowners. We will not rest until we find the home that best suits your needs within your budget nor leave you house poor .Mary and I have been so touched by your kind comments and you have truly made our day. We are so excited and blessed that you have chosen us to help you find you a home and truly looking forward to finding you the perfect place.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $50K in Boiling Springs, SC.
My husband and I were looking for a home together and I started calling the listing agents on the houses we liked. NONE of them called me back. I did some research on who was a good realtor in the area and no one had anywhere near as many 5 star reviews as Gary. He showed me the house I was interested in originally (which was a really beat up short sale) and I was displeased with the house so he recommended not only some beautiful homes but some great deals with incredible financing opportunities. He and his wife are what realtors and finance people are supposed to be--up front, knowledgeable, and totally on your side. He got us a fantastic deal on a brand new home and made it all so easy. They work with your schedule, your price range, your preferences, and are always available. They are great negotiators and wonderful people to work with. I would reccomend no one but Gary.

I had a great experience working with Gary on buying my new home. I honestly can't say enough about how extremely helpful everyone was throughout the process. He was there to answer any questions or concerns, and I feel I got a great deal with him in my corner. I would recommend anybody to Gary if asked where to go,

Bought a home in 2012.
Gary along with everyone at 1 Stop Realty made the process of being a first time home buyer easy and very understandable. The team there has a great understanding of both the real estate and the financial side of home buying. They search out your best options for purchasing a home that fits within your needs and budget. With any questions you may have during the process they are always there with quick responses to your concerns and with your best interest in mind. Overall they do an outstanding job and I do not see how anyone could possibly do better!

Thanks for all the hard work, -JP
