We decided to move to Kirksville Missouri from Jefferson City Missouri in
early 2009. We moved to Kirksville to be close to an ageing parent and
to find a better school system for our son, Jacob, who is autistic. One
of the measurements we use in choosing businesses and in meeting new
people is how they treat our son. We patronize places that treat him
like a real person. We met Rick Bachman at an open house and liked him
immediately, but he hadn't passed the 'Jacob' test. So we made
arrangements to view some houses with Rick and brought Jacob along...the
rest is history! Rick tirelessly traipsed through endless properties,
high fiving Jacob and answering every question, whether about video games
or homes. After a year (or more) Rick found us the PERFECT home and the
best part? We made friends with Rick and his entire family! How much
better could it get?? New community, new home, new friends. That's why
we recommend Rick Bachman and Heritage House...cause you aren't just a
client and it isn't just a house...it's a future, a home and a community.
Rick was a pleasure to deal with. We liked the fact that he was very down to earth, unlike some realtors. He didn't show up in a suit and tie trying to sell himself to us, but rather he came wearing a nice shirt and blue jeans and showed us the house and told us what he knew about it (positives and negatives). There was no reading between the lines with him. He had a very flexible schedule and made himself available when it worked best for us. If we couldn't meet in person, we could always reach him on his phone. He made the buying process simple for us. We didn't have to do a lot of work. He always kept us up to date with every piece of information he had. He answered any questions we had to the best of his ability. He seemed to genuinely care about making sure we were completely satisfied with the entire buying process. Even a few months after closing when we had an issue (not with him), we called him just to get an opinion and he helped us out with that as well. He could have just brushed us off since everything was already finalized, but he didn't. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a realtor. Thanks Rick!
I first met Rick on a quick trip from Louisiana to look at hunting properties. Rick dropped everything to accommodate my short schedule even at the last minute. He quickly assessed what I was looking for and literally in a matter of a few hours had several choice properties for me to view. Upon visiting the properties Rick had all the information and documents I requested, as well as a bundle of addition information. He was very accommodating and treated me like a longtime neighbor. That was a refreshing experience for an out-of-stater. During the negotiation phase Rick was awesome. He kept in touch with me continuously and was very detailed in his updates. The purchase of my new farm was a great experience, and Rick will definitely be my Go to Guy when I purchase more land. Rick made this whole process feel like a hand shake deal between friends. He was very gracious when meeting my wife and daughter during the closing. This is why I highly recommend Rick for all mine & your future purchases. Thanks Buddy. See ya around the campfire.

I came from out of state looking for houses and Rick was phenomenal. He made himself available to my limited schedule and showed me numerous houses to learn exactly what features I needed. He kept me appraised, by phone, and internet, of all available possibilities after that initial weekend. When I returned to Kirksville to purchase a home, Rick had every detail of every home available to me so I could make a solid and speedy decision. My friends, when learning of Rick's hard work, diligence, aptitude, and the fun we had together, were sorry they did not have "Ricks" in their states.
Similar to my wonderful purchasing experiences, Rick sold both of my homes within weeks of listing them. He was honest and analytical with the listing features and price, he made excellent recommendations in presenting my homes, and he marketed my homes with skill. Truly, Rick went above and beyond in every possible way. I am proud to call him my Realtor. I am happier yet, that we became friends from these wonderful experiences.
Since 2007 we have had the pleasure to work with Tise Frazier at Heritage House Realty in the purchase and sale of homes in Kirksville. We have purchased two homes from Tise and sold one when we were transferred to Pennsylvania, and her professionalism shown would lead us to buy a third if the need arises. When we first met Tise she listened to our needs and found the perfect house for us, and for our son who is at ATSU. Tise is truly a Kirksville Ambassador to everyone who relocates to Kirksville. She knows the town, she knows the inventory and she listens to the clients needs.
We have used Rick to buy multiple properties and have had never had any problems. He is always straight forward and honest about anything he knows about the property, and he never pressures you like I have seen a lot of other realtors do. We will always use Rick for all our realty needs and we strongly recommend anyone else to do the same.
I would highly recommend working with Sara Smith, and Heritage House. It was such a pleasure to work with Sara - she walked me through every step of the process of selling my home and property in the country and helping me downsize to a smaller house in town. It was a very difficult decision to move from my dream house in the country to a house in town, but she made it so much easier for me. She always listened to what I wanted and needed, and helped me make some of the very difficult decisions I needed to make. She always explained everything very thoroughly so that I knew exactly what was going on. It was no easy task, I'm sure, working with two other realtors and three buyers/sellers, but she was always professional, and always so kind and patient with me at the same time. She was always there for me, and it was such a pleasure to work with her. She made the entire process from the very first day of the listing process to the end of "moving day" so much easier for me than it would have been otherwise. Thank you Sara!!
"Mike was extremely helpful and informative in the buying process. I would definitely recommend him as he is very attentive to your needs regardless of the time of day."
Pat was extremely professional and she was available when we really needed her. We sold our home and purchased a new home with Pat's assistance, and we would not use anyone else. Thanks, Pat!
Tim has been my realtor in both the purchasing and selling of my homes. His professionalism and knowledge was key in making these transactions go smoothly. He was always willing to accomodate my busy schedule and the advice he gave was invaluable. I am so grateful to have had the extra care, attention, humor and expertise Tim offered all the way through. I have recommeded Tim to my family and friends and would do the same to you.
I would highly recommend Pam Danner to anyone buying a home. Pam is a very honest, caring person, who listens to your wants and needs in a home. She is also very patient. If I have questions I can always reach her by phone and/or email and always get a reply back. After discussing with her what my daughter and I needed and wanted in a home she went to work finding our dream house and stayed within my budget. She found our house, walking us through all the steps as we wait for closing. Again, I would and will recommend Pam to all my family and friends whether they are buying or selling a house.
What a blessing to have a realtor that actually cares about you and your property. Ms. Jones is unique in her ability to make you feel like you are selling a "goldmine" when possibly you are not, but a regular working-person with a regular-everyday house.
One of the things I enjoy about Emily is her feed-back to me after a showing. Other realtors keep you guessing on what is going on with the marketing process. Emily is always professional and ready to tackle a new project.
As with other "sellers", the market is slow, but Emily still give me hope that someday soon, the right family will come along so I can pass the goldmine on fo rnew memories.
"Thanks for getting our house sold. Everyone we know thought selling our
house was going to be impossible. You were the only person we talked to who
was positive about it selling."
"Dear Mike, We want to thank you for all of the countless hours you spent helping us sell our properties. Your market knowledge, expert advice and never ending patience made the entire process seem simple and produced the results of our expectations. Without a doubt, we will call on you for all of our real estate needs in the future and we regularly recommend you with confidence to our friends and neighbors. Thanks again and best of luck."
"My wife and I would like to express our appreciation of Mike LaBeth. This past summer we decided to list our home for sale and move to Kansas City. Our timing was somewhat suspect with the economic recession that our nation found itself in. This did not daunt Mike; he agreed to take our listing on with enthusiasm.
We found Mike to be the ultimate professional. He was very professional in his approach, and methods of marketing our home. Mike kept us informed weekly as to progress, or suggestions of things he wanted to try in order to help us sell our house. The economic crisis of the summer caused Mike to explore and suggest many new or non-traditional methods to stimulate interest in our home. Mike was very innovative and positive in his approach during this difficult time for real estate. Through it all Mike maintained a positive attitude and approach which was comforting to us.
When the offer came through, Mike gave us a very understandable presentation of the details, and immediately switched into service mode to help facilitate and expedite the closing process. Because of Mike’s assistance the closing went off timely and without a hitch. Mike LaBeth helped us achieve our goal to relocate to Kansas City during this very difficult time in the real estate market. He was the ultimate professional and saw the deal through to the end. Not only did he help us to sell our home so that we could realize our goal to relocate, Mike also demonstrated his personal caring and hard work ethic. My wife and I feel the best end result for us was that we gained a trusted friend; we would recommend Mike to anyone with no reservations.
Mike will deliver all that he promises, and be very professional throughout the process."
