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.

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 the team of transaction coordinators 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.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 in Clive, IA.

Travis Heckman became my real estate agent by pure chance. I found a house I liked on Zillow and called the first agent in the attached list. I consider myself lucky, because Travis was able to make the whole process of purchasing a house of my and wife's dreams as pleasant and rewarding experience as possible. 1. First, Travis was very friendly. That helped to ease up the tension we had in anticipation of a very significant investment. 2. Travis was very professional. He was able to provide both overview of the current real estate market situation, and specific details about each and every property he found for our consideration, or we found for purchasing consideration. 3. Travis was very prompt, right-to-the-point, and accommodating. My wife and I are very busy people, and we appreciated Travis' timeliness, speed of electronic documents exchange, accuracy of each and every processed paper (and there were TONS!) and numerous accommodations to our time and situation. 4. While providing the service, Travis was never pushy; on the contrary, he always honestly provided existing "pros" and "contras", leaving decision to us, and providing practical advise upon request. 5. We felt overall support of the company behind Travis' services. Heather Write personally monitored the process and offered additional support any time it was needed. As the result, we believe we found and successfully purchased the house of our dreams for a good price. I will use Travis' services again, and I will recommend his services to all of my friends. Thank you, Travis, and thank you, Heather Wright & Associates!  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $125K in River Bend, Des Moines, IA.

I was recommended to Jessica Wichers from one of my friends, and she was absolutely fantastic to work with.

As stressful as it can be searching for a new home, Jess made the process very easy. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area and was able to answer any questions I threw at her, and I threw A LOT of questions at her. If she didn't know the answer right away, she would research it and get back to me right away.

Jess helped me find houses in the neighborhood I was looking to move into, and was very flexible with my hectic work schedule to take me on showings, most of which were on the weekend and had been sprung on her a day or two before I wanted to walk through them.

Being a first time buyer, I wasn't quite sure what I was to expect with the entire process of buying a house. Jess gave me a time line of things that would happen once I put in my initial offer and helped me through the entire process, from our very first meeting to the day I was signing the paperwork and getting the keys to the house.

Of all the great things I could say about working with Jess, the most important to me was that she gave me so much attention. I never felt like I was being forgotten about, or pushed backed to work with another buyer or seller. She was always courteous and prompt with anything I asked her about.

I can honestly say, if it were not for Jess, the home buying process would have been much more stressful and probably would have taken me MUCH longer. I was very lucky to have gotten her as a recommendation, and I will be recommending her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Urbandale, IA.

Great experience all around. The entire team at Heather Wright and Associates were wonderful to work with. I made the offer on my home during a very busy time but the response time to my questions was always quick. I always felt like a person and never like a number. I will definately be coming back if/when the need arrises.  More Less
