Team reviews

I had a unique and wonderful experience with Heather and her group so I feel the need to share with all of you. Several weeks ago I contacted Heather Wright and Associates because i was getting ready to sell my house (duh). She was able to make an appointment to see my house with in a day or two and was very nice, funny and educated on my property before even coming over. She had some great recommendations and answered all of my questions with simple answers. As it turns out someone I work with was very interested in my house so Heather was kind enough to give me info for how to go ahead with the sale without using a realtor! At first I thought she must be crazy but as it turns out I've been bragging about her ever since. She's great. I highly recommend her based on her honest alone; not to mention her professionalism with my barking, territorial dog. Thanks, Janel Sporrer

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in West Des Moines, IA.

I can't begin to thank Heather enough for her outstanding service and polished professionalism. She helped me quickly price and sell my mother's long-time home during a very difficult transition, as we moved my mom to an assisted living facility. Making arrangements from Chicago, I needed a very reliable professional who knew the market, could price my mom's house fairly and guide me on how to prepare the house for sale, attract buyers, negotiate effectively, and, ultimately, seal the deal. Heather proved to be very knowledgeable and executed flawlessly. We sold the house within days of putting it on the market at our target price. Most of all, she kept in close communication and simplified what could have been a complex process by answering all my questions in great detail and with grace. Heather's upbeat attitude is infectious. She is a treasure!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Ankeny, IA.

Heather was simply amazing and words would be insufficient in describing her awesomeness!! We "stumbled" upon her by chance, and couldn't be happier. We picked her from a list of agents for one of the first houses we liked, and got a call from her not five minutes later, and that too, on a Sunday! She helped my husband and I purchase a house recently. We looked at many, many houses and after a few showings, Heather "knew" what we wanted in a house! Heather was easy to work with, and made a sincere effort to work within our schedules. She never rushed us into any decisions, and was extremely patient with us, answering all questions with as much detail as possible. She communicated with us promptly and responded to messages at any time of the day! As stressful as buying a house is, Heather made the whole process much more pleasant!

Thank you, Tony & Rasna! I know you'll be happy in that home for many years. And, I'm super jealous of your new gas range!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Westwood, Des Moines, IA.

Heather is a very effective marketer. We had multiple showings on our first day on the market. She is honest and direct and gets the job done. In addition to this she is funny, kind and helpful. She is a hard working problem solver that thinks outside the box. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Thank you, Emily! We did get creative with your sale and purchase - but it worked out in the end which is what's most important. I know you, Bob and the kids are really happy to have a lot more space to grow in your new house. Congrats!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Urbandale, IA.

Heather Wright and her team are incredible at what they do! Heather was super quick to respond to my many questions and made our listing process as simple as possible. We received an incredible offer within 24 hours of listing our house that we accepted. Heather followed us through the entire process until our house closed. She will be my first phone call if I decide to sell a home in the future, and I will recommend her to anyone who wants to sell their home quickly and at asking price. Great job Heather Wright and Associates!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Urbandale, IA.

Heather has an outstanding knowledge of the Des Moines real estate market and her execution of the sale of my mother's condo exceeded my family's expectations. As several of us live in other states, she and her team handled all the details and communicated with us frequently - commonly returning calls within minutes. She gave us very sound advice throughout the process beginning with a competitive pricing strategy and all the way through the negotiation of the final inspection details. Her marketing techniques generated significant showings and the home sold in just over a week. When the buyer's financing fell through, she re-listed the home and again sold it in just over a week. We would certainly recommend Heather and her team to anyone needing to sell their home.

Thanks, Doug! It just goes to show what proper presentation and a strategic marketing plan can do. It was a pleasure working with you, Al, your mom and the elusive Stan. Call me anytime!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Gray's Lake, Des Moines, IA.
Primary point of contact: Jessica Wichers

Very helpful, responsive and listens well. Showed us homes we asked to see and didn't try to push us into a home she may have liked. Very pleasant to work with, responded to emails even when I didn't expect her to (as in after hours both early and late in the day). We will definitely work with her again should we choose to sell this home (years from now of course). :)

Sold a Condo home in 2015 in Urbandale, IA.

What a pleasure to write a review for Heather. My brothers and I recently listed and sold a townhouse through Heather after a bad experience with another agent from a competitor. The Zillow reviews played a large part in our "interviewing" Heather as a potential listing agent. The rave reviews below are accurate. What a pro! It is hard to match the efficiency, communication, and expertise the team at Heather Wright Associates provided. While our mother resides in Clive and the property was in Urbandale, two of us are in Indianapolis and Chicago. We were impressed with the quality of prospects she provided, the use of technology to list, promote , communicate with us, negotiate and close the deal. She put my mother at ease and provided support and confidence through the process. Heather has boundless energy and her personality and sense of humor made this enjoyable, if you can believe that!! My only regret is that I don't live in the Des Moines area or I would have my house listed with her when the time comes to sell. My mother has already recommended Heather to her friends and my brothers and I will do the same to our many friends in Urbandale and West Des Moines. Thank you going above and beyond our expectations.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $150K in Merle Hay, Des Moines, IA.

I can't say enough great things about Heather Wright! We just purchased our first home with her help and she made the process painless and quick. From the very first phone call I had with her I knew that she was going to be fantastic to work with...she was enthusiastic and excited about helping us find our home. Being new to the home buying process, she answered each of our many questions with great detail and in a way we could understand. We found a home we loved very quickly and can't say thanks enough to Heather for helping us through the very end (and even after!)

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $225K 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!
