When in the Greater Des Moines area, look to Heather Wright & Associates to provide the professional, personal real estate service you want – and the results you need.

Heather has been helping home buyers and sellers as an independent agent since 2010. She holds numerous designations and awards, including the DMAAR Circle of Excellence in 2012 and 2013 and the RE/MAX Platinum Club award for 2013.

By 2014 her business had grown so much that she knew she couldn't continue to provide the excellent service she's known for without some assistance. She needed to create a team.

Heather never does things half way, so she soon enlisted two licensed agents, a team assistant, and a transaction coordinator.

Theirs is a team in the true sense of the word – a group of people with a common goal to provide each of their clients with the utmost in professional service and care. While clients do primarily work with only one member of the team, the others are on hand to provide back-up and assistance, so clients are never left waiting.

Jessica Wichers (Jess) brings 5 years' experience in retail management to her role as an agent. As a manager she honed her problem solving and negotiating skills and learned to "roll with the punches." In retail, as in real estate, circumstances are apt to change in an instant.

Travis Heckman brings a different expertise to his clients. Years of experience in construction and remodeling gives him insight into the problems, solutions, and possibilities inherent in every home.

Team assistant Terri Heckman and transaction coordinator Linda Ruppert help keep everyone else on track – making sure that all "back office" activities are completed and all deadlines are met. Their efforts leave agents free to spend more time in direct contact with clients, providing them with the service and attention that all clients deserve.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Bloomfield-Allen, Des Moines, IA.

Heather Wright and Associates were recommended to us by a colleague where I work. After the initial interview in our home, the wife and I decided right away to look no further and proceed with her and the rest of the team. We moved out of State and were able to still work closely and completely with them during the selling of the home. Worth noting is the teams ability to handle every situation. In our example, it was closing on a sold home even though we were miles apart! I would highly recommend Heather and her team for your consideration when selling a home.

Thank you.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in West Des Moines, IA.

My wife Tara and I met Jess in late August after we had sold our home and were anxiously looking to start the search for our "dream house". Over the next two months, this adventure turned into a series of events that almost drove us crazy, but thanks to Jess we made it!!! I feel the need to elaborate only to illustrate the workload that Jess took on with us. We had a short timeframe to find a house, make an offer, and close (5 weeks). We spent hours with Jess looking at dozens upon dozens of houses for close to 3 weeks. Realizing we weren't finding exactly what we wanted, we shifted gears and chose to down size and purchase a house that we could live in short term and then turn into an investment property upon finding our long term home. Little did we know that with the help of Jess, we would then find our long term home just a few weeks later. As a result, we actually ended up purchasing two houses within 6 weeks of each other and Jess was fantastic through the entire process. Not only did she make herself extremely available, she proved to be very knowledgeable about all the options in our price range. In fact, our long term home ended up being a foreclosure that was below our budget allowing for remodeling work that should get us everything we were looking for. We had missed this house when doing our own online searches. In addition to her positive and upbeat attitude, we were most pleased with the fact that Jess never tried to "sell" us something. She quickly learned what we wanted and were looking for. When we'd walk into a new house, she would help point out observations that were in line with our wants/needs, weather they were in favor of the house or not. We felt like we had a trusted friend with us, and not someone that was trying to rush us into a sale. If our investment property works out and we look to purchase another house in the future, Jess WIchers has solidified our future business!!!  More Less

Thanks so much for the review, Andy & Tara! I know Jess worked hard for you on both houses and that last one was an experience, for sure. We're so happy that you were able to get that foreclosure gem and I know we'd both like to see the "after" pics once you've made it your own.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 in West Des Moines, IA.

I worked with Travis exclusively and he was GREAT! Over and beyond with help before, during and after the purchase. He helped me to find local people to help me with insurance, a locksmith, an internet provider, cable TV...etc
