Here are a few testimonials from our buyers:

“Heather was knowledgeable and helpful about everything we asked her. She knows and loves the area and took so much time and energy to help get us in the best house for us. Any interaction we’ve had with her and her team was completely positive and I cannot recommend them highly enough!” —Kourtney G.

“As you already know, or are about to find out, buying your first home is an exciting but stressful experience. While planning a wedding at the same time, we definitely had high expectations for finding the rightplace to start our lives together as a family. Heather was great to work with, she was willing to travel near and far to look at houses that we thought were “the one”. However, after seeing some of these houses, we were left with wanting more. Even though we wanted to look at a dozen homes in a dozen different areas, Heather was always quick to respond, set up showings around our schedule and was very knowledgeable about anything we, as first time homebuyers, had questions about. After a few weeks, we walked into a house that felt like a home. Heather helped us find the perfect place to begin our family. We moved in before our wedding and now love the married and homeowners life. We would recommend Heather to anyone searching for a new home. We not only found “the one” in each other but also found it in our first home as a family.” –Chase and Karly W.

“I can’t begin to describe the dedication Heather has with each and every client she helps make their dream of being a homeowner come true. My family was in the market to purchase a home and she knew exactly what we were looking for. I didn’t need to nor had the time to search on my own. I received a call from Heather to hurry and look up a particular hoe as the sign was in the yard but not yet listed on MLS and she knew this was “the house” for us. We made an appointment for the very next day, wrote an offer and had it accepted. If it weren’t for her keeping her eye out we would have missed out on our dream home.” —Angela G.

“Heather listed and sold our home in Ingalls and also helped us buy another home in Pendleotn. Heather did a fantastic job and our house was on the market and sold in 14 days! She is extremely knowledgeable about the Pendleton market and the surrounding area and I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking to buy/sell. Thank you Heather for all that you did for our family!” —Jonathan K.

“We used Heather Upton as our Realtor for both selling our home and purchasing a new home. We have worked with realtors before. Heather’s performance was superior to that of Realtors we have used previously. Her experience and knowledge in the real estate market proved to be very significant. Heather did an excellent job of guiding us through both the selling and purchasing process. Heather helped guide us in the right directions and in the right timeframes throughout the entire process while also letting us make our own decisions. We initially established prior to engaging a Realtor what we anticipated we could sell our home for and what we would have to spend to get the new home we wanted. With Heather being our Realtor she was able to help us improve all of our original expectations on both selling our home and what we paid for our new home. Heather’s intuition and knowledge of the real estate market proved to be accurate. Her experience and straight forward approach helped make our real estate transactions occur very timely and accurately. Heather is very professional but personable. I highly recommend Heather Upton to anyone for your real estate needs.” —Kent and Jan S.

Home Heating Safety. Here Are Quick Tips.

As the winter weather has made its way to us, remember to maintain your heating systems to keep your home safe.

If you have natural gas heating in your home, you probably know that natural gas has a sour smell (think rotten eggs). If you smell gas, it is important to be cautious because you likely have a gas leak. Here are some tips if you should smell gas:

Avoid Flammable Items. Any spark can set off an explosion. Avoid turning on lights, igniting flames of any kind and do not shut down electronic equipment.

Leave Your Home. It’s not safe to stay in your home if you suspect a leak. Leave immediately upon the smell of gas.

Call The Professionals. Call your gas company or 911 from your mobile phone away from your home. They will come out to your home to inspect the leak and be able to remedy the situation.

If you have an electric furnace, here are some troubleshooting tips:

Little or No Heat. Try increasing the temperature by five degrees and give the system a few minutes to register the change. Also, check the filter. A dirty filter can prevent proper airflow and reduce the heat.

Blower Runs Nonstop. Switch the thermostat from on to off or auto. If the motor doesn’t turn off, it’s probably a faulty relay and you’ll need a qualified professional repairman.

Noisy Furnace. This may be indicative of a bad belt that is worn, damaged or sticking.

No Power. If the furnace won’t kick on at all, check the fuses to see if one is blown or tripped. You can reset the power or shut off the unit for about thirty minutes, then reset the furnace. Sometimes the furnace may just be overloaded.

It is recommended to have your furnace, water heater, and other natural gas appliances inspected annually by a licensed technician. Prevent problems by spending the time and money to have your heating systems inspected. And, stay warm everyone!
