Becky was incredible to work with as she knows the Southwest Michigan market and is very responsive. We were out of town prospectors and Becky responded to us as if we were ready to buy the next day. As it turned out, our house sold very quickly and we found a property that we love. All aspects of our move were very positive and I am very happy that I found her name and called her about a listing.
I have used Becky Heaps on three occasions in the past 10 years to sell my home and buy rental properties. Each time I felt like I could trust I was getting the best deal and that all the paperwork would be in order to complete the transactions. I have also had Becky show me homes for sale multiple times over the years. I can always use her as a good sounding board for ideas, my reservations, and honest feedback regarding the market and resale values. She is very knowledgeable of the Berrien County market. I would never consider using another realtor!
I have worked with Becky on two different sales. The first was the purchase/selling of my very first home and the second was our purchase of our dream home. Becky has always been professional and wonderful to work with. She puts her clients first and doesn’t mind assisting all parties privy to a transaction to get it closed. There was always open dialog and conversation and I never felt like I was being taken or left in the dark about anything. We are so lucky to have found such an honest, fun, exciting and dedicated professional to help us sell & buy our homes. I absolutely would recommend Becky to anyone thinking about buying or selling a home.
I called Becky when we first came to the area. She was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She wanted to know about us, our family and what we were looking for in a home. We were impressed with her professionalism as she showed us the homes, neighborhoods and schools in the area that we wanted. When we found the perfect home, Becky was with us. The words were unspoken but she knew we loved the house! She made the transaction so smooth and easy. We’ve worked with her several more times over the years. She is wonderful. I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.
Becky is outstanding. She is always available and very patient. She knows the local market so well that no matter what style, location or price you’re looking for she’ll find it. I bought a home from her and the process was so effortless it was actually fun. She has an incredible work ethic and I felt always she had my best interest in mind. I’m currently in the market for a new house and of course I’ve decided to work with her again. She is so patient and understanding and no matter how many times I’ve changed my mind she’s always there with a smile. I’ve worked with many other agents in the past and many times felt pressured to make a decision or that I was just a dollar sign in their eyes. With Becky I believe she could care less about her commission and truly loves what she does and that’s finding people not just the perfect house, but finding them a home.
Becky rocks! We have bought and sold a number of properties over the years. Becky is by far the most accessible and energetic realtor we have met. There are many “local” realtors but, unlike Becky, they don’t all have strong community ties. This insight was invaluable for us. We had been looking for over two years and had specific criteria. She didn’t just wait for homes to appear on the MLS. Because of her community ties, she was aware of potential sales and scoured the ‘hood for us. In less than one month and after only one other showing, she found us the perfect home. Becky listened and didn’t try to sell us. She is tireless, professional and a joy to work with. We are so glad our paths crossed.
Becky did a great job with helping us find a home as we relocated to MI from IL! We spent a couple of hours looking at 4-5 homes and made an offer on one we showed to us! We love our new home and would highly recommend Becky Heaps!!!
Becky and her husband Paul were a great team to work with! They were patient as we searched for a house and we never felt pressured. When we found the house we purchased, it was an easy process. When we put our house up for sale a couple months later, they were very helpful in that process as well. We’ll definitely go to them again if the need arises.
Becky Heaps is so knowledgeable and kind!! She knew the area and was able to find us exactly what we wanted!! She treated my family like her family!! It was a pleasure to work with her!! I would recommend her to everyone!!
My husband and I moved from southern Indiana to southern Michigan last year. Becky, Paul and Pam went out of their way to accommodate our requests to show us houses at our convenience even if it was not convenient for them. We had the opportunity to be picky and we looked at tons of houses. Never a complaint from the Realty Executive Team. They were always there for us. If we had a question and they did not have the answer, they did the research and found the answer. (ie..property lines, utilities, taxes, etc.) I would definitely use Realty Executives again and highly recommend them to anyone I know who is in the market for a new house.
Becky was my realtor when I bought my first home and she was also my realtor when I sold it three years later. It sold within three weeks and I couldn’t have been happier. I loved working with her.
Absolutely the best. I have worked with Becky for over four years and only purchased one home and am always interested in looking – she is patient as well as knowledgeable ! I will continue to use Becky for more purchased. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone !
Becky is fantastic to work with! She was friendly, energetic and exceptional and immediate at providing everything we needed. I also appreciated that she gave us our time and “mental space” to process our thoughts as we toured homes. She is a woman of great character and integrity.
Becky made buying my first home an enjoyable experience. She was knowledgable, always available, and professional. I even went back to her a few years later to purchase some commercial property. And when it’s time to sell my house, I’ll give her a call again!
Buying a house in another state can be difficult and stressful but Becky made the experience easy and fun! She was always available to meet with us, sometimes with very little notice and never made us feel like we were wasting her time. We love the house we finally settled on and feel like we also made a good friend in the process. It doesn’t get any better than that! Would highly recommend Becky and her team to anyone house hunting!
We were in a hurry to purchase a home and Becky spent an entire day, in the snow, showing us 9 different houses in the area. Her knowledge and expertise was crucial in our decision to purchase a home, yet she was never pushy-answered all of our questions and let US decide the right home for our family-and we found our dream home! Becky made the purchase experience extremely easy and went above and beyond any other realtor I have ever heard of. Anytime someone mentions looking to buy or sell a home the first thing I do is recommend Becky and Realty Executives, Pro Brokers. If we were to ever consider selling/buying again, Becky would be the first and only realtor we would use. She is the best!
Becky Heaps and the Heaps Team is nothing short of Premier Real Estate Organization. I have always received professional and knowledgeable guidance during both of my purchases. The “family touch” they put on their communication, follow up and assistance, is amazing. I can’t see myself using anyone else, as I feel I am apart of their family. I recommend Becky and her Team enthusiastically.
Becky and Paul were excellent to work with. They were always there to answer any questions or concerns that I had, in a timely fashion. I had a lot of confidence in their abilities and they didn’t let me down. I always recommend them to anyone that I hear is either wanting to buy a home or sell theirs. Great team to work with!
I recommend Becky Heaps wholeheartedly! She and her whole team were superb, both in selling our former home, and in finding and purchasing our new home. They helped us prepare our old house to go on the market by identifying which improvements were going to help us sell quickly and for top dollar. Once our home was ready, the Heaps team analyzed the market to come up with a competitive sale price. There was assistance in staging, and professional quality photos were taken and posted online. Four days after going on the market, our house was sold! There was only one problem. We hadn’t yet found a house to move into! In this arena too, Becky Heaps and her team excelled! They made note of every key issue for us: size, price, school district . . . the list goes on. They even remembered that I am ridiculously over-sensitive to poison ivy. When we went to look at a house that was surrounded by woods, agents arrived early enough to scour the area and make sure there wasn’t poison ivy anywhere close enough to be a problem for me. They entered all of that information ( minus the poison ivy 🙂 ) into a database that generated an email directly to us every time a house that fell within our parameters came onto the market. It was a lifesaver! We were the first ones through the door when the perfect house for us came onto the market. We were advised as to what a fair offer would be, and it was accepted. In the course of getting our financing approved, we of course had an appraisal. The new home appraised higher than our purchase price. 🙂 We couldn’t be happier with Becky Heaps and her whole team! If we are in need of realtors in the future ( unlikely, as we really ARE in the perfect house for us! ), there isn’t anyone else we would even consider calling.
If you’re looking for insight into the market, understanding of the buyers and sellers both, or patience and quick responses when working with clients, this is the realtor for you. Becky Heaps found us the perfect house! That may not sound so special, but my husband and I are really picky – like, we asked Ms. Heaps to take us through 30 or so houses kind of picky. She always knew ahead of time whether we’d love it or not, but she patiently led us through each one so we could be sure. I was looking for fixer-uppers, my husband was looking for move-in ready with no renovations needed. Her honesty and tact when dealing with the disparity should earn her an honorary psychology degree. Beyond that, she was available night and day, responded immediately to queries, and told us the truth about each house we looked at or were thinking of looking at. I wish I could write another review about how great she was at SELLING the house we were living in. Again, her honesty, tact, and practical selling suggestions were irreplaceable. She held our hand for everything we were uncertain about and was respectful of all the things we’d already made up our minds about. I’ve worked with several real estate agents in the past – some who are even relatives – but I’ve never had a better experience than I did when working with the Heaps Team!
I have often recommended Becky & Paul Heaps to friends and family. Her help and persistence allowed our family to live in the house of our dreams and make a stressful time A LOT less stressful!
Becky was outstanding throughout our selling, searching and purchasing process! Here knowledge with the area and honesty we knew we were in excellent hands. Sold & bought within 7 days!! Couldn’t ask for anything more in a realtor! Becky and The Heaps team outstanding!
Becky and Paul are THE BEST realtors you will find in the area, hands down!! They helped with the selling/buying of our past and current home, and they were always available and very tentative to all of our needs. They are both very knowledgeable of the market and surrounding area, and made the process effortless. They work very hard from start to finish to make sure you get exactly the home you are looking for, and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!!
Becky has assisted me in purchasing two different houses and selling one. She is amazingly helpful and knows all the ins and outs of her business. She’s very responsive to questions, patient with all the visits and re visits to potential houses. She returns calls quickly and moves quickly once a decision is made. She walks you through the whole process and keeps things calm in a stressful time.
Becky and her husband Paul came recommended to me by a good friend. 1st was trying to find my next house before putting my existing house on the market. They listened to what I was looking for and took me to see a few options. None of them were me. I found a great neighborhood but the houses I could afford had an odd floor plan. Meanwhile my mom who came along pushed me to look at another house down the street from that one. I wasn’t even going to look because the price point was out of my range. Becky took me to see it, I fell in love and she figured out how to get me into that house. Then we had to see my house. She met with me the day before I left to go out of town. She called me the next day while on my trip and told me she had someone she wanted to show it to but wanted to check with me first since it wasn’t officially “on the market” yet. She had my house sold before I returned from my long weekend away. I’ve lived in my current house now for ten years and have never regretted a moment of it. I’ve recommended Becky to other friends and will continue to do so. Awesome to work with!
We have dealt with Becky (and her husband) several times in buying our own home and investment properties. When we first came to St. Joseph and didn’t know anyone, Becky was so friendly and knowledgable, she made us feel at home right away. When my in-laws decided to move here, they also used Becky and loved her. She is very friendly, not pushy, not overbearing, but still knows her stuff. I would (and do) recommend her to anyone in need of a real estate agent.
Becky’s knowledge of the area and the homes that were available that fit our needs was amazing. On the day of our very first viewing we met Becky and she presented us with fresh baked cookies. Our 4 year old daughter was so excited by that gesture. From the first viewing to the day we moved into our new home Becky was always just a phone call away to answer every question no matter how big or small it was. Becky and Paul Heaps are professional beyond anything we ever expected and we highly recommend The Heaps team if you want honesty, a dedicated staff and all of your needs and concerns taken into consideration when buying a new home.
Becky and the whole team were great. We thought we were going to take our time to find the perfect home and they were very low pressure and let us move at our own pace, and even facilitated meetings with home builders when we were considering building new. When we found the one, much sooner than we thought we would, everything was very efficient, organized, and professional. They were great at helping us navigate through a non-typical home buying experience. We don’t plan to move any time soon but if we do, they’ll be the first to know.
We loved working with Becky. She spent a lot of time with us, making sure that we found the perfect home. Becky understood what we were looking for, and she never pressured us into anything that we didn’t want. She had great recommendations for a house inspector and other local service providers. We have been pleased with everyone that she suggested. If we ever sell, we would be sure to work with her again!
Becky was very painted with our search. We vecilated on making a decision and she stayed focused and patient. She expedited our offer and followed up to the close.
Becky worked very hard, was very energetic, and always responsive. She always took time with us and was flexible in scheduling to work around our obligations. On top of that, she is a person who is fun to be around!
Becky is very personable and easy to work with and is very knowledgeable about the real estate in St. Joseph and surrounding areas. She showed us a variety of houses that fit our budget until we found the perfect vacation home for our family. Becky and her husband Paul are very friendly and we still keep in contact with them today, and we’ve recommended them to friends and family.
Reality Executives is an amazing company to work with. Their professionalism and friendliness is impeccable! Becky & Paul helped my husband I sell our starter home with ease! They then used their knowledge and experience to find us a home that was perfect for us & our growing family. I really appreciate how comfortable they made us feel. They worked with us and communicated to us throughout the process! We will definitely use Reality Executives for all of our real estate needs in the future! Thank you for being such a great company to work with!
Becky was willing to go above and beyond when it came to finding houses, showing houses, or meeting to discuss our progress. She was open, honest, stayed on top of everything for us. That allowed us to purchase our current home quickly. Our home had only been on the market one day when Becky found it for us. We thought we had missed some great houses by being outbid, but no we won big with our current house. I would highly recommend Becky Heaps if you are wanting to buy a home.
My husband and I worked with Becky to find our first home together. We moved to Michigan as I was working with Whirlpool and didn’t know anyone. Becky made us feel right at home and was a super agent. We told her what we wanted and she did a great job in helping us find our place. There was no pressure at all and she always made sure to listen to us. We would highly recommend her if you want someone that will truly support the biggest financial decision of your life!
Becky helped me find my home several years ago. I was living in an apartment, with an annual 30 day window to renew my lease, giving me 30 days per year to search for and find a home. Well this went on for several years – I must have looked at dozens of homes – never finding the right one for me. Becky was extremely patient, and kept coming back each year with a renewed sense of conviction about finding me a place of my own. Finally it all came together – I found my home and Becky closed the deal professionally and efficiently. Thanks Becky!
I am very pleased with my results using Becky as my realtor. I am very particular about my house requirements and Becky went above and beyond to find me my perfect home. Her level of professionalism and knowledge of the area were top notch. I definitely recommend Becky as a realtor for anybody buying or selling a house!!
My experience with Becky was amazing! She was very effective on keeping me updated on every new home coming in to the market. She was also really great showing me the area and giving me great tips about the location since I was new to the area.
In 2003 we moved to Southwestern Michigan leaving 10 years later because of job change. Becky was instrumental in making the house buying then selling a painless smooth process. An unending source of advice, contacts with reliable local home and yard maintenance business people then when the time to sell came staging protocol onto the best mover to fit our needs. Simply said she is the best !
Not only is Becky very knowledgeable of her craft, she is a “hoot” to work with. She makes house looking, buying, and closing fun. I certainly would ask her to list my house when we are ready to sell and most certainly would recommend her to my friends for any real estate transactions. Thanks Becky for making a stressful procedure fun. My husband and I felt comfortable with the entire transaction. You are in good hands with Becky!
Becky and her team are great! We were picky and wanted to see many homes – some multiple times; Becky and her team were always quick to get a showing set up and greet us with a smiling face. Would recommend her!
I purchased my home using Paul & Becky & was extremely happy. I was looking for a unique property, which took time to find. They were with me every step of the way. Awesome job. Thanks Paul & Becky! Shirley Taylor
I have worked with Becky and Paul at different times over the course of several years and they have always been easy to work with, responsive, knowledgeable and give 110%. They know the area and know real estate- I highly recommend The Heaps Team.
Becky and Paul are the best in the business in Berrien County. We let them know what we were looking for and they found several properties that met our needs. We finally settled on a great house with all the extras we were looking for in the range we were seeking. These two go above and beyond to make sure that everything gets covered before, during and yes, even after the sale. We were impressed with the after sale attention this team provides. It’s great to find and work with great people.
Becky guided me through the whole process of buying my house. Her staff was just fantastic. I never felt pressured. They answered every question I threw at them. They really listened to me. I love my new home!!
We were very impressed with the entire Heaps team. They were very knowledgeable and always available. Very patient with us finding our perfect home. They truly care about your needs and wants. I would recommend them to everyone!
We worked with Becky Heaps and she was amazing. She was organized, efficient, knowledgeable, and was able to guide us through the process seamlessly. Most importantly, she was very kind and conscientious, keeping our family’s best interest at heart throughout it all. With such a complex and tedious process as buying a first home, Becky’s inherent integrity made it easy to trust her completely through the process. It took so much stress off of our shoulders to know that we could count on her! Would very highly recommend the Heaps team- indeed we hope they will be our realtors for life!
Becky was absolutely wonderful to work with. Went above and beyond the necessary just to help us purchase! She is very resourceful, and her team can work miracles.
I would definitely recommend Becky and Paul- “The Heaps Team”- to anyone looking to move in St. Joseph or the Southwest Michigan area. We relocated from a different state and they helped us find a house that was just right for our family of six. When we had exhausted the listed homes during our search, they contacted homeowners to find homes ready to go on the market or owners considering selling in the area we preferred. That’s how we found the house we ended up purchasing! They guided us through the finishing stages of the buying process with a team member, Pam, who focused on all the steps that come up after the initial buying agreement. She managed everything with the lender, inspection and closing (and much more). This was our easiest move yet! So happy we ended up with Becky and Paul!!!
We have rented a property the Heap’s team managed, purchased a home with them as our buyer’s agent & are now working with them to sell our home. The service they have provided has been incredible. Their response time is immediate, they anticipate our needs & provide a level of service that is truly top quality. I love Becky’s problem-solving approach to this industry. Each obstacle we faced was nothing more than that. She & her team offered us solutions & did all of the leg work for us.
Becky, Paul and Pam do an excellent job from start to finish. They dealt with our finicky taste and flakey decision process with the utmost customer service. We appreciated that someone was always available for a last minute showing and Pam did an excellent job getting us to close. Definitely recommend the Heaps Team!
Becky, Pam, and the team were with us through the ups and downs of the process. Becky took me to the list of homes I found during an internet search and quickly determined my style. She recommended the best neighborhoods and homes and found 4 that would work. She did NOT let us settle. She worked diligently to get us our top choice … even when it seemed the deal was going to fail she did not give up and got us into our top pick. Pam was amazing through the closing process and ensured all of the documents were ready. Closing took place on schedule. Thank you Becky, Pam and the rest of The Heaps Team!
Becky’s use of technology, her understanding of the market, and her lightning-fast communication gave us the opportunity to land a beautiful home that we would have missed had it not been for her keeping close tabs on what homes were being listed and suggesting we look at it within minutes of it hitting the market. We always felt as though we were her only client even though I noticed the ceiling-to-floor list of properties that her office was working at the time. Her guidance in placing a bid was well-explained and eerily accurate, making us extremely confident in making our offer. Becky’s energy and enthusiasm are infectious, exuding excitement and fun in what otherwise could be a potentially stressful life-decision process.
The Heaps Team provided fantastic service in helping my wife and i in finding our new home. We live out of state and Becky and Team worked tirelessly helping us select a new home in a short time. I would proudly recommend The Heaps Team to everyone looking to buy a new home or rent your home for you.
Becky was very helpful. She made buying my home an enjoyable experience. She and her team did an amazing job helping me through the entire process. She only showed me homes in my price range and size I was looking for, and found it in the perfect location.
We used the Heaps Team as a listing agent and they sold our property within two weeks and they were able to negotiate the price we expected from the beginning. After every property showing they provided us immediate feedback (good or bad) from the customer which was very helpful on our end. This allowed us the to make immediate evaluations on price and quality improvements based on real feedback from the potential buyer. I would highly recommend The Heaps Team for real estate needs in SW Michigan.
Becky and her team went above and beyond in every way!!! Becky is so easy to work with and is an expert on Southwest Michigan. We have relocated and have lived in 10 states and I can honestly say she is one of the best real estate agents we have ever worked with. We would highly recommend Becky and her entire team for all your real estate needs. They are the best.
Becky and her team did an incredible job helping us find the home we wanted. She was always quick to respond and always was quick to get back to us. Always worked around our schedule to get into homes. Becky is incredibley knowledgeable about the local real estate market and gave great honest feedback. She did a great job getting us the best deal possible on the house we wanted and walked us through each step of the closing process..I would highly recommend Becky and her team.
We had a great experience working with Becky & Paul! They are extremely knowledgable about the area. There were honest about the pros & cons of my house so that I would know what to expect as people were looking. And they were extremely responsive to any questions or concerns that I had during the selling process. I was also extremely impressed by the process for determining the price of my home. My home sold quickly and for a good price – so they are definitely doing something right! I would definitely work with Becky & Paul again.
They were extremely helpful and proficient in every aspect of the home buying process. Scheduled home viewings worked well around or busy schedules, processing of all necessary documents was outstanding and closing was Hassel free.
Becky goes out of her way to be sure buyers are comfortable through each step of the process. She is upfront about market trends while doing everything possible to find the right home for her buyers’ needs. In addition, Becky often connects with other realtors and homeowners to scout potential sale properties before they even hit the market. This allows her buyers early access to the best homes available. Becky Heaps is a lot of fun and great to work with!
Paul and Becky took the time to get us in the houses we wanted to see quickly, which was great since houses in St Joseph are moving so quickly. We were just casually starting to look when we came across a house we really liked and Becky helped us with the process since we hadn’t bought a house in 15 years we forgot exactly what to do. We also sold our house thru the Heaps Team and their office did an amazing job of organizing the sale. We Sold our house the same day we listed! Whenever we had a question Becky was there to answer. They were a lot of fun too, which made the process more enjoyable.
The Heaps team responded instantly to our online request via text message. They found us our dream house that wasn’t on the market yet using their connections. They helped us through the buying and selling process. They sold our house in 2 days using their selling plan!
Becky and Paul Heaps, and in fact their entire team, were a pleasure to work with in helping me find a home (not just a house) in the St. Joe area. I was touched at the amount of care, patience, and understanding they showed each time I passed on a prospective home for one reason or another. They helped me keep the faith that the perfect home would soon turn up, and sure enough, it eventually did. To The Heaps Team: thank you!
I highly recommend the Heaps team. They are absolutely wonderful. Very patient and extremely helpful. They all made my condo purchase go extremely smooth and painless.
