Heather was great to work with on the purchase of our second home. She was easy to work with, responsive to our questions and inquiries, and most importantly she took the stress out of the home buying process and made it fun.
We would highly recommend Heather to anyone looking for a friendly, knowledgeable, and experienced Realtor.
Thanks for helping us find our Wright house.

Awwww, your Wright house!! Thank YOU for choosing me as your agent. Your experience isn't "normal" in the sense that every house you wanted to offer on was already sold. If I remember correctly this was the 3rd house so the 3rd time is a charm! I hope you love your new home for many years!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in West Des Moines, IA.
We loved working with Heather! She made this experience fun for us. She was always there to answer my many questions, and we loved the way we could docu-sign all the forms, so the process was virtually painless and happened really quickly. I would recommend Heather to any one looking to buy or sell a home. She is delightful to work with and always has a smile on her face. Thank you Heather! We love our new home.

Thank you Kimberly! I loved working with you and Brett too! So happy for you both to have sold your two homes and find one that you'll build into a home together. Many years of happiness ahead for you two!!

Heather was the best. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. She is so knowledgable, informative and accommodating of anything needed and works incredibly hard to get the results you want. In less than 2 months she had sold my place and put me in a beautiful new home. Beyond just getting the job done she'll make the process fun.

Thanks, Barb! And, I'm so glad to have been able to help your friend Jenn sell her house too. Thanks for trusting me to help sell your townhouse and buy a new one!
Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2013 in Bondurant, IA.
My wife and I could not have asked for finding a better realtor in Heather! We contacted two other realtors to try and find the best one and Heather was by far the best. Her initial presentation to us was amazing and we could already tell that she had put in the time and effort to get our business and wanted to help us sell our home. The other realtors were far less prepared and their presentation was below par. She was always available to be contacted, responded in a timely manner and was always very professional. We moved out of the Central Iowa area but if we ever come back Heather will be our realtor and I have already told several of my friends in Central Iowa about her and how great she is!

Sold in 12 days! What a whirlwind! Thanks for choosing me to sell your house. I enjoyed working with both of you and would be so honored to help you if you were to ever move back! Thanks, Blake, and best of luck to you!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Beaverdale, Des Moines, IA.
We decided to sell our house in the Beaverdale neighborhood around October 2012. After reading the online reviews, we decided on Heather because of her great reviews.
Our Beaverdale house would be vacant since we were moving to another place in SE Iowa. The initial meeting with Heather went well, and we were given an honest, but professional opinion of our house value. There was some activity as far as showings ... it did start out slow ... there was bad weather on the day of our open house, and only 1-3 visitors showed -- without any of them showing "real" interest. Our house continued to be for sale through the winter with no offers, but the showings definitely picked up after the new year (January 2013). Our first offer was a "low-ball" offer, and we were pleased with how Heather used her experience to negotiate for us. Heather never pressured us to take the "low-ball" offer, and after going back & forth with the potential buyer, we could not agree on a number (disappointing ... but it was good in the long run). A couple of weeks after the "low-ball" offer fell apart, Heather informed us of another possible offer -- an "on contract" sale. With our own research, and Heather's input, we decided not to pursue this offer. At this point our house had been for sale for over 3 months, and the prior offers were discouraging. We decided to continue with Heather throughout the summer (if needed) because we were happy with what she was doing, and never pressured us to accept an offer we were not comfortable with.
Finally, a couple of weeks after the "on-contract" offer, we received a solid offer! The overall selling process was stressful and anxious, but Heather was always professional and responsive. We especially appreciated Heather's negotiating expertise.
We are happy our professional relationship with Heather ended on a happy note - with the successful sale of our house (at the end of April 2013), but I would recommend Heather even if we had not been able to sell our house. On a side note, we were given the option to stay with Iowa Realty during the start of our last negotiations since Heather moved to ReMAX, but we said we preferred to stay with Heather -- so Heather worked to get our house sold even after she moved to ReMAX. We highly recommend her! Thanks Heather!

Thanks, Say! I had forgotten about those lower offers and the contract as well. It took longer to sell but there was no reason to give your house away! Hope you're enjoying life with just one mortgage.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Urbandale, IA.
Heather worked with us to find just the right house for us to start out together in. Her knowledge and honesty were very helpful. She had tremendous patience and a great sense of humor. This was very useful in helping this pair of fifty somethings find a house to share. Once we located just the right house, she was very diligent about getting my house sold and very knowledgeable about the process. We have one more house to get sold and Heather will be the professional we will choose to help us.

Remember when you started your real estate adventure you were just "getting your feet wet"? You jumped right in! Very happy you and Lou are enjoying the new digs. I'm looking forward to the housewarming party this month!

Heather is a great realtor who helping us getting our new house. She is very thoughtful and very experienced. Without her help we were not able to find out which one is best to buy since it was the first time for us. She guided us to every step in home purchasing so smoothly and absolutely worry-free.
