"It was a wonderful experience working with the Heller Real Estate Group. I am very impressed with the level of professionalism demonstrated by everyone on their team. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."by Matt
"I have listened to the radio shows for years. When it came time to sell, I choose a very good Realtor. I did not listen through to what he was saying. He was doing the job part time and farmed it out to newcomers. Their marketing plan was more like a therapy group. At the beginning of the process I told the realtor, tell me what I need to hear about the market and how to sell. Not to assure me that my opinion was correct. I came to the conclusion that I would not sell my house in the buyers market as my listing was a hobby and their was no real or aggressive plan to market the house. To the credit of this realtor, he released me of the 6 month contract after 3 months. I then decided while listening to the show, to call. Immediately, full service. Aaron was very candid and had no problem telling me what I needed to hear. He did not try to get the listing. Soft sell. He explained the market and what the realistic expectations were. He brought in 1-2 qualified buyers everyday, no open houses, no unqualified buyers and within 4 weeks (and aggressive negotiation), we sold for a price that we needed. Almost exactly what Aaron told us it would likely sell for. Every detail of the transaction was handled by the staff for a seamless process. Thank you Chris Heller and staff."by Mike M.
"After tuning in to Chris's Sunday morning real estate show on AM600, we followed his advice to interview at least three realty companies, simplify our decor, and de-clutter in preparation for selling. We opted for the team approach of Heller the Homeseller and were pleased from Day One. Aaron Simons handled the sale of our home, Peggy de Smit took us shopping for another. Through the whole process we felt "cared for" and could rely on any member of the team to assist. We continue to recommend this agency and would turn to them again in the future if the need arises."by Jen
"Chris Heller and his entire "team" were a pleasure to work with at every stage of my selling experience. I would highly recommend Chris and his "team" to those who wish to sell and enjoy working with highly trained professionals who work quickly and efficiently and communicate very frequently during all stages of the sales process."by Kathy
"Top notch...need I say more! We listed our house and within THREE days had TWO offers (a bidding war!) and ended up getting more than our asking price. Chris and his staff did a great job negotiating the deal. And now, in just a couple of days we will close on our new house. Again, their expertise in negotiation shined through and we got a screaming deal! Buying a house is a huge financial decision and they were a great resource. Plus, they were so supportive and patient with my pregnant emotions. What else can you ask for?!"by Keena
"Aaron and the team at the Heller Real Estate Group listed our home in Point Loma and had an accepted offer in 1 week. Great job Team Heller."by Scott
"We were looking for a property management company for our property in Oceanside when we found Kara Clausen at The Heller Real Estate Group. She has been a great help to us, ie. getting the house ready for showings, marketing the property, showing the property and finding us a tenant. The transaction has been very smooth and communication excellent. She has gone above and beyond in helping us with our property."by Shawna
"The Heller Group has been incredible and is the best in the nation. I am a pretty hard to deal guy and they always been courteous, patient and ready to help me. They also fought for my friend to purchase the house next door to me and they were successful even if the house had multiple offers. I will recommend them to anyone thinking about selling or buying. I have been through a lot of real estate transactions in the past and they are the best. Especially Peggy. She is incredible and will fight for you!"by Herve
"I have to give a shout out to The Heller Real Estate Group for going to bat on my behalf as if I was purchasing a 2M home, even though it was just a 1 bdrm. condo. It was a foreclosure with a clerical obstacle that prevented me from closing on time. They reassured me throughout the ordeal and I'm glad I didn't throw in the towel. Pure professionals is all I can say!!!"by Gregory
"I am impressed with Heller Real Estate! I received updates daily and was relieved how efficient the whole team is! I like that a team worked to help sell my home. I felt like I was their priority! They did everything they said they were going to do at the first meeting, I am a big fan of following thru!"by Tonia
"Chris has handled 4 transactions for me and several others for people I referred to him. Of course, his expertise, honesty, and integrity are without question. Buying and/or selling a house is the most stressful thing I've ever done. What a relief it was to have Chris representing me! He proved that he cares personally for me and wants what is best for me!! Where do you find someone like that?? He thinks of everything and is beyond calm and patient."by Brenda
"I had to take time to write you and thank you all for your work and care in helping us sell our property... and so quickly! I have to imagine that four days is a record. It did not go unnoticed how Chris met with us personally and the good tips he gave us on how to sell and not to mention the beautiful pictures he posted on the MLS."by Karla & Ted
"Chris came to our house and we were "sold" immediately. He presented himself in a warm yet very professional manner. Both of us were very impressed with his honesty and sincere desire to sell our house!"by Bruce & Andrea
