If how someone treats you is how they feel about you, then the real estate professionals at Wallace Home Group, ReeceNichols Eastland, will undoubtedly treat you like family. With agents licensed in Missouri and Kansas and based in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, this dynamic team of dedicated professionals stands at the ready for all of your real estate needs.
Upon first meeting Heather Wells of Wallace Home Group, you are welcomed by her warm and inviting personality. There is something intangible about her that makes you feel right at home. However, she will be the first to let you know she is part of a team first, and that everyone in this group leads with a heart of service for others.
Raised in a real estate family, Wells essentially cut her teeth in the industry. Her parents both have strong roots in the business. Her dad Larry Wallace began his career in the early 1970s, initially working with Harden Stockton and then transitioning to Coldwell Banker before purchasing JC Nichols with two other executives and growing it to the revered status known as ReeceNichols today. Wells’ mom, Marcia Wallace, obtained her real estate license in 1989, followed by Wells three years later. The two worked in the same office but in separate roles.

“My mom was the head of our team until a few years ago and truly is the legacy behind it,” reflected Wells, who credits Marcia with setting a strong foundation for the solid work ethic and guiding principles this team follows. Wells’ sister Jenny Nagel is also an integral part of this team. Jenny previously worked as a title closer for years and brings to the table a wealth of expertise with respect to closings, title work, and contracts. Wallace Home Group has now grown to a team of six agents and a transaction coordinator. In addition to Wallace, Wells, and Nagel, team members include Jeannette Hedberg, Amy Hurley, LuAnn Roberts, and Erica Holmes.
“We are a family boutique team, and all of our agents are like family to us,” emphasized Wells, who credits the overall success of the team to the relationships they create within the community. “We have sold thousands of homes and enjoy both repeat and referral opportunities to do business.”
Wells and her team pride themselves on their overall knowledge of the market, which includes new construction and relocation services, and their superior customer service. And, they also understand the various chapters in life through which people transition.
“We walk with our clients through all stages of life,” noted Wells. “We have a highly compassionate team who assists each client on their own personal journey of life. It means so much to us when clients call us to help them in situations, such as referring a grown child to us who wants to buy a home or perhaps, they are in the process of selling their parents’ home and moving them into assisted living.”
The Wallace Home Group fully appreciates that buying and/or selling a home is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make in life, and it is a process they do not take lightly. With their real estate experience and expertise, they can walk you through the entire process, managing all of the details, and offering you the peace of mind you deserve.

“We work hard and are big in setting goals for ourselves,” expressed Wells. “But it is not about the numbers. We do the hard work so we can help others through the entire process. This is not a job for us. It is a career and a lifestyle. We all love what we do.”
With such a strong focus on relationships, this expert team endeavors to make each transition seamless and enjoyable. Plus, each team member is fully aware of what’s going on with respect to everyone’s clients. As a result, there will always be someone to help you when you need the help.
“There is such strength in our team, as we all know each other’s clients, which is a great benefit not only to each of us but also to our clients,” smiled Wells.
When you work with anyone at Wallace Home Group, you are guaranteed agents who love what they do, continually learn about new systems and changes in the market and ensure that each and every transaction is as easy and rewarding as possible.
“Our team just has great energy, and that vibe attracts the type of clients with which we work,” noted Wells. “We are all super optimistic about things, no matter the situation.”
