~~
Originally inspired by the success of her sister, Robin Mueck, Heritage Texas Properties’ Broker/Owner, Holly Wade first caught the real estate “bug” when her sister and brother-in-law bought a vacation home on Galveston Bay. Something about that purchase served as a catalyst and Holly decided to earn her own license to begin a career in real estate, an adventure she approached with great enthusiasm. 

Focused primarily on Galveston Island’s West End, Holly has built a remarkable reputation serving its resort, luxury, second home, and investment markets. Recognized as a 2012, 2014 & 2015 Texas Monthly FIVE STAR Realtor, Holly attributes that success to her dedication in helping clients achieve their goals, and the joy derived from such an important and happy experience. But, she also gives lots of credit to where she does her work. “There’s nothing like waking up every day to the sound of the seagulls and the beauty of the beach,” says Holly. 

Formerly a fitness center manager, she loves the island lifestyle and all it has to offer. It boosts her healthy outlook and positive energy, qualities that her clients feed upon. Very personable and a great listener, Holly is very service-oriented and works hard to take care of the small details that ensure her clients’ real estate transactions have positive outcomes, which allows them to place their attention on the actual move itself. 

She finds that she loves interacting with her sellers and buyers, and says that her #1 goal is to build lasting relationships. In fact, her professional credo is that, “It’s never about the deal; it’s always about the people. It’s pretty hard NOT to be successful when you love real estate as much as I do.”

It was a pleasure to work with Holly. She presented my needs and inquiries to each home owner we dealt with and gave me expedient feedback. I appreciate her professionalism and talent. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy, sell, or rent.

Holly's determination to see our sell through was fantastic. Her effort never slowed from the first day to the last that the house was on the market.

Working with Holly was a most rewarding experience. After emailing her over Labor Day weekend, she promptly got down to work. After picking up the keys held by the vacation rental company, Holly visited the next day and immediately organized a local vendor on my behalf for some remedial work. She promptly emailed me her analysis of “comps” in the area and I confidently signed to list with her at our first meeting. Holly guided me through all the certifications required to list the property. She also uses the photographic services of Brad South, the most proficient photographer for this kind of work I have ever seen. My listing posted Friday afternoon. Four parties viewed on Saturday, 4 viewed on Sunday and several more the following week. By the end of day that first Monday though, I had received sound offers from many who viewed in the initial 48hrs. I was extremely impressed by Holly’s negotiating prowess with the buyers' Realtor. She recognized the key points which were presented after inspection and possesses a discerning eye for those items deemed as essential to address versus general aspects found when owning beach property. Holly even took care of returning a Uverse modem to AT&T on my behalf. She also checked on my property again shortly before closing, made one last look over and emailed me her comments. Without doubt, Holly is the most proactive and service-oriented Realtor I ever met, with a strong drive to meet clients’ expectations and needs. She took my property from listing to closure in just 38 days. Whilst I naturally hope this review benefits Holly, ultimately it will be her future clients who will benefit the most from the relationship they develop with her. I firmly believe they, like I, will then also wish to share their own experiences with Holly and provide their own endorsements that will give readers the full and complete confidence in her they need. I can personally assure them, they will be in very safe hands indeed with Holly

Holly really stuck with the deal which could have and probably should have gone south completely. Even with this small purchase Holly worked hard to get to closing as if it was a million dollar deal. Thanks.

Holly did not actually represent us as buyers; we represented ourselves. However, Holly was easy to work with and provided a lot of effort to get the deal closed. However, we were annoyed with Holly's broker for refusing to allow us to receive a share of the commission (we are both attorneys) as is common practice and which we have done on other transactions.

The only thing I would say is I will never accept an offer from an individual without their own agent again (our broker had both sides of the deal). It seem to be messy and I did not always feel I was getting all the information.

Holly went beyond the normal realtor, client relationship. She was very helpful in areas not required by a realtor. I will definitely recommend her to anyone requiring a realtor and I would use her services again if I had the need.

Holly was quite attentive to our desire to sell the property in Galveston, and we feel that she did a great job in seeing it sell in a short amount of time. Holly is also very outgoing and demonstrates a positive attitude in her abilities as a competent real estate broker. We would definitely recommend her to others.

As semi-retired Houston Real Estate Broker (25 active years), it was a difficult decision to select a Listing Agent for our Bay home at Laffites Cove in Galveston. We interviewed several companies and agents and decided on Holly Wade with Barefoot Properties. It was her genuine enthusiasm for our home, her strong work ethic (willing to hold the house open practically every weekend) and her desire to get the house sold within our specified time frame that helped to cement that decision. Working with Holly was always a joy--she answered every possible question or found the answer for us. She kept her reports on who had seen the house and the open house interests. Also, her company, Barefoot Properties, was well-informed about the listing and privy to most information regarding the house so that they were indeed involved in pursuit of a buyer. This was very comforting and not what we had experienced with the former company we listed with--it was as if they didn't know who we were or anything about the house. Holly presented all offers with enthusiasm and dilligence. Eventually we ended up agreeing on an offer and after much haggling we were able to close within the specified time thanks to Holly's help. Please consider this letter as a positive endorsement for Holly Wade--she will get the job done! Sincerely, Deanne Thrash White Independent Real Estate Broker Texas License #0239652
