Heffington Realty a longtime supporter of local community – Published in the January 9-15 edition of the Johnston County Sentinel

This week’s Member Spotlight is on Heffington Realty (HR)! Seigel Heffington first obtained his Real Estate License in 1974 and served as an Associate under Converse Real Estate for 7 years.  In 1981, he started Heffington Real Estate; in 1999 he made a name change to Johnston County Real Estate; then Green Acres Realty; and finally settled on Heffington Realty in 2005.  As a licensed real estate agent for over 45 years, he’s seen just about everything and the business has been well supported over that length of time from the citizens of this great community and all over Johnston County.

HR has several Associates that are also great professionals when it comes to all of your real estate needs.  Sherry Yochum, Broker Associate; Mike Lovett, Sales Associate; Lela Barnes, Sales Associate; and Melissa Heffington, who is currently studying for her license exam and should come on board sometime early this year, are all motivated and excited to work with property owners trying to sell and those looking for a new home in Johnston County.

The business, in all of its forms, has always supported the City of Tishomingo and Johnston County.  HR is a member of the Chamber of Commerce, the Johnston County Industrial Authority, Johnston County Historical Society, Tishomingo Lions Club, the Family Health Center of Southern Oklahoma, and Tishomingo Daughters.  They also support the Johnston County Free Fair, 4-H Clubs, CPASA, TDT, Murray State College, the local Boy Scouts chapter, Chickasaw Nation programs, all Johnston County Schools, the Tishomingo Golf and Recreation Club and many more.

Perhaps you’ve noticed the beautiful, wood waterwheel just beside the realty office? It was built roughly 5 years ago and has been a great success at drawing attraction to the HR block in the downtown area. “We thought it might be attractive to tourists who visit our town and want to see something a little different. Little kids close their eyes, make a wish, and toss their coins in the pool. I’ve seen hundreds of people taking pictures with the waterwheel as background. It was even seen in a country music video. As far as we know, it’s the only main street waterwheel in Oklahoma and we’re proud of that,” noted Heffington.

“We appreciate our customers so much,” Seigel said, “living in Tishomingo has been a great opportunity for us.” You can learn more about Heffington Realty by visiting them online at www.heffingtonrealty.com, visiting their office at 306 W. Main, or calling 580-371-9885. Just look for the water wheel!
