Bought a home in 2014.

Heather not only did a great job helping us to buy our first home, but she went above and beyond when issues arose to make sure that we were taken care of. She gave us daily lists of homes that had gone on the market as well as showed us homes all over the area. She pointed out issues that we didn't notice and gave us her expertise. She walked us through every step of the way and was always prompt to contact us back if we had questions or wanted to set up a viewing. We would strongly recommend Heather as your realtor, especially after we had gone through others who didn't take the time to listen to what we wanted.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in North of Grand, Des Moines, IA.

Heather's team was great to work with! As a first time home buyer, and single parent, I didn't know where to start. There was not a lot on the market in my price range, but I was determined to find a great starter home for me and my daughter.

After just about a week, and viewing almost a dozen different properties, we put in an offer on a nicely renovated bungalow just blocks from where my daughter is to start high school in the fall. Jessica, a member of Heather's buyers team, was with me through it all...the inspection, the finance piece, addendums to the purchase agreement, repairs, the walk through, etc. They were always so quick to respond and talk me through the process. I would definitely recommend them to anyone buying or selling real estate!!!

Congratulations on your new home! To think...you almost didn't look at that house at all. Imagine - you could still be looking! We hope you have many years of happiness there!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Ankeny, IA.

Heather was HIGHLY recommended to us by a very close friend that has used her when they purchased their home. When we met Heather for the first time, she was oozing with real estate knowledge and made us feel very comfortable. She even brought us warm chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven to make us feel more at home! Heather was easy to get ahold of, quick to respond, and worked diligently to meet our real estate needs. With her, we sold AND bought a house in only 11 days!! I would say that next time I move I would use Heather, but she did such a great job helping us find a home that I never want to leave our new beautiful residence. Thank you Heather for all of your hard work! I would definitely recommend her to others.

Omigosh! The cookies is a great idea. I could warm up HyVee cookies on the car engine en route. No, that's gross. Thanks for the great review, Jill. Many, many years of happiness for your family in your new home!

Bought a home in 2014.

In January, my wife and I began to look for an apartment to rent. Just for fun, we decided to view a house for sale, as well. We contacted Heather because she was listed on Zillow - good luck for us! Heather not only showed us the house (pointing out important structural problems that we, as inexperienced homebuyers, would never have seen), but she also helped us realize that purchasing a home could be less expensive than signing a lease for an apartment. Heather helped us make sense of the process of the financing process, connected us with excellent loan agents, and explained how to approach negotiations with sellers, all while showing us multiple houses each weekend (and doubtlessly working with many other clients, too). Even after we closed on a home, she continued to provide us with resources and guidance. I'd recommend Heather without reservation to anyone else who is entering the home buying field for the first time!

Thanks, Michael! Yes, looking out for foundation problems is always a concern. Sure, I want to sell you a house today, but I also want you to call me in a few years when you're ready to sell. That would be a tough sale if I didn't point out serious structural issues. So glad everything is working out for you two!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Merle Hay, Des Moines, IA.

Heather helped us buy our first home while we were living in a different city. She did a great job explaining the process to us and guiding us through each step. There were a couple houses we thought we liked a lot, but Heather pointed out the issues that we were overlooking and helped us avoid making a mistake. We sent lots of emails and called many times with questions, and Heather was able to respond to all of them very promptly.

We are very happy with the home we bought, and I think we would have ended up with someone less perfect without Heather's help.

I'm so glad you love your new home! Thanks for choosing me as your agent - I really enjoyed getting to know you and helping you in the home buying process. The home you picked was the best choice both structurally and for your lifestyle and I hope you're happy there for many years!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Drake, Des Moines, IA.

What can I say, other than Heather Wright sold our house in just two days. And for more money than we were asking. In December no less. Every step of the way working with her to find a new home and sell our old one was a breeze. She's super organized and made sure our listing really stood out from the crowd. Every last detail was perfect. We also appreciated how responsive she was to calls and messages – we always knew what was happening through the whole process. Professional merits aside, she's also a really nice person with a great attitude. We highly recommend working with her.

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

Heather was very supportive and informative from beginning to end of my house sale. She was very honest and I felt that I could trust her through this process. My house sold quickly and she facilitated the sale even though I was already in another state. I highly recommend her! Thanks, Heather!

Thank you, Dee! So happy I could help you get back to warmer weather. All of us in Iowa are slightly jealous you're there and we're in this polar vortex. If you ever move back - call me!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Urbandale, IA.

Heather is a wonderfully patient agent. We found her to be transparent with the process and really helpful at showings. At the beginning of our house hunt Heather guided us to define our parameters, then we spent time looking at a variety of houses and when we found the right one, Heather really helped us through the negotiation process. Heather and her team made closing easy and stress-free. I would recommend Heather Wright without any reservations.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Ankeny, IA.

I worked with Heather in purchasing a new home as well as selling my current home. She provided lots of insight into the real estate world and great guidance. She was able to provide recommendations for various services needed for the two transactions. All contacts were great to work with. I was very comfortable with asking Heather questions and she was always quick with a reply. She always stayed on top of things and provided follow up as needed. She would provide reason for what she recommended and why. In setting the price to sell our home, there was quite a discussion. She did list the home at the price we wanted but discussed a plan of action for selling the home quickly if there was no response to the initial listing. Heather new the desire for a double oven in the new home and when the purchase offer was written she included that as part of the offer. I was always kept informed of what was going on with each transaction. I was very comfortable working with Heather. She was very nice, knowledgeable, understanding, honest, and quick to respond. Heather was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her.

Thank you Lisa! I hope you're settling in to the new place. Selling and buying at the same time can be really stressful but you made it look too easy. Enjoy having an association to dig you out of the snow!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Johnston, IA.

Going into this process with a vision of our dream, Heather and Deb were helpful and pleasant. After looking at around 7-8 homes in the area, we found a house that met just about everything we were looking for. Deb kept us informed and the negotiations were quick and simple.
