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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Meredith, Des Moines, IA.

My husband and I recently purchased our first home and I'm so glad we found Heather to help us through the process. The home we bought was FSBO, which we were a little nervous about, but Heather made sure to negotiate with the sellers in advance so there were no surprise fees. Everything was straight forward and very organized, We had a family emergency around the same time and Heather was great about being sensitive to our situation, but also making sure to keep us on track for our target closing date. We will definitely use Heather again if we buy or sell in the area.

I hope you're enjoying your new home and everyone is settled in. Looks like your street is pretty enthusiastic with holiday lights! Neil will have to string some up next year when it's still warm out. :)

Sold a home in 2013.

Heather did an incredible job as my realtor. She was professional, excellent to work with! She answered all my questions and emails with a fast response. She went above and beyond what an agent should do and as result, my house sold quickly. However the 1st buyers financing was a nightmare and she listed my house back on the market and had it sold in 4 days. Impressive! Great knowledge of real estate and the market. I would and will recommend Heather to anyone. Did an amazing job!!!

Heather helped me purchase my first home and she was excellent to work with. She is very responsive and she makes the homebuying process as seamless as possible. She also has a great reputation in the DM/Metro area and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
