Inventing a Successful Real Estate Career – Tom Heller

REALTOR® Tom Heller “Invents” a Successful Real Estate Career

No matter what career path Tom decided to take, his success was probably inevitable.  He comes from a long line of family success stories, starting with Elias Heller, the family founder who gave up his farm in Germany in 1836 and immigrated to America to become a blacksmith making farrier tools. Throughout 5 generations, Tom’s entrepreneurial ancestors would patent many tools as the Heller name made its mark on the tool industry.

After 24 years in business for himself, Tom sold his own company in Ohio and moved to The Villages a little over 11 years ago with hisTom Heller wife Bonnie. Not one to sit idle, he embarked on a real estate career with the same determination, work ethic and accountability he inherited from his relatives. He soon reached a level of success in real estate experienced by few in the industry.  Tom received many awards from RE/MAX  International headquarters for his hard work and high production, including the prestigious RE/MAX Hall of Fame award which was established to recognize and salute an exclusive group of top producers.

Over the past several years, we have sold our homes in Washington, D.C., Boston, and New York areas, and most recently in Harbor Hills.  Of all the realtors who have worked with us, we found Tom Heller to be the “very best and most caring” by far! Tom is highly professional, hard-working, dependable, and most importantly – very honest and ethical.

Tom Heller made selling our home a delightful and very satisfying experience.  He was always prompt in appointments and thorough in his preparations for our meetings.  His on-target market analysis gave us confidence that we would be able to sell our home at an excellent price and in a reasonable time-frame.  Tom’s warm and friendly manner set us at ease as we progressed through this process.

Tom’s willingness to help others shines through his humble demeanor. He and his wife Bonnie also participate in several charities such as the Sumter County Humane Society, and Disabled Veterans. Tom also donates a portion of the commission from every closing to the Children’s Miracle Network.

Tom holds a Senior Real Estate Specialist designation, and is a former Eagle Scout.  We are very proud to have him as a part of the RE/MAX Premier Realty family.
