"My wife and I went through the homebuying process for the first time. We were very lucky to get in touch with Art. He explained the process well and kept us prepared for the next steps. He shared his honest opinions on homes we went to look at and didn't pressure us to to go for something we weren't sure about. He even recommended against bidding on a couple homes that he felt were overpriced. When we finally found the right one, he got our bid together quickly enough and got the seller to accept it before even having an open house (where we surely would have been outbid). We have been living in the house for about a month now and we love it!" - David & Rita

"Art is one of a kind! He helped us find a "needle in a haystack" after looking for a year with different agents. He is VERY patient, has amazing attention to detail and has access to resources I haven't seen any other agents use. He is very proactive - doesn't wait for things to happen, he just handles them! He also helped manage other areas of the buy including making loan and vendor recommendations. He made the entire process seamless and stress-free. Thank you Art!!!!" - Angela

"Art Heckman is excellent! I recently purchased a condo in Newport Beach, and am happy to say the entire process was an extremely positive experience. Art paid close attention to detail every step of the way, was extremely knowledgeable and professional, and had good access to resources. From the beginning Art knew exactly what I had in mind and aggressively searched, resulting in the property I just purchased. I couldn't be happier with my new home and with the experience I had working with Art Heckman. Thank you Art!" - Nancy

"Finding Art was the single best thing that happened to us during our home purchase process. We had gone thru several local agents before we found Art. Art was the only one who was able to understand exactly what we were looking for and helped us find it. In fact, he showed me my home before it even had a public open house. He knew the market and the area very well and understood the real-estate landscape at that time. It was a short sale and Art has plenty of experience finding both those and regular sales. Once we finished the purchase, Art then helped us list our old house for rent. The renters he found and screened for us are still there (it's been over 2 years)." - Nini

★★★★★
"Art is an AMAZING realtor!!!!!!!!!!!!! He was there with us step by step through the entire process-from house hunting to closing. He is extremely knowledgeable, persistent and knows how to get the job done. We were up against an all cash offer and he still managed to close the deal for us. He was there to answer any questions through the process. Thanks to Art we are making our dream home a reality. I would give him my highest recommendation and strongly urge those looking for their next home to contact him." - Becky & Phil
