Here’s a Little About The Company

We’ve been passionate about real estate since buying our first property at the bottom of the latest real estate cycle, in 2009. As we gained experience living in 1 unit of that property and renting the other unit out, we saw what a great opportunity real estate could be to start a profitable business, while also providing quality housing.

Since we didn’t have formal training or a background in real estate, we learned by reading lots of books, listening to lots podcasts, and otherwise consuming as much information as we could. After a short time educating ourselves and meeting other local real estate investors, we made friends with local investors who helped us learn how renovate properties and sell for a profit. After working in partnership with other investors for a couple of years, we went out on our own.

We love the business of real estate and the opportunity to help sellers who sometimes are in difficult situations sell their properties quickly and easily.

For many people selling the traditional way, with a Realtor, is a good option. But for some, they’re willing to accept slightly less than they’d get with a Realtor in exchange for an easy sale. Some sellers want to avoid having to deal with the hassle of getting their house ready for the market and having lots of buyers walking through their property. They’d rather deal with a private buyer who can buy their house the first time they meet with them.

We offer that alternative to sellers and look forward to doing it for many years to come.

4 Brothers made selling my house very easy. I gave them a call and they came out and took a look at my house, and we were able to agree to a price and closing date right there and then. They were able to work around when I needed to close, and even let me stay in the house for two weeks after closing, until I was able to move to my new place.

I had a great experience working with Jon to sell my house in Northern VA. From the time I initially called in, to the time I sold the house and got my money was less than a month. They were accommodating with my needs and were upfront about the process. I definitely recommend giving them a call if you are looking for a way to sell your house quickly and easily.

When I inherited my mother's house in Silver Spring I contacted a number of investors about selling it. In fact I had it under contract with another investor who ended up not actually going through with buying the house. I contacted Jon to have him come out and give me a price. We worked everything out while he was there on a pretty simple contract form. He gave me the 2 months I needed to clear out the house. And went to closing exactly when he said we would. It was a pretty easy and painless process.

I recently did my first deal with Jon and I was thoroughly impressed with his professionalism. He was prompt with his responses, and provided me with pertinent information in a timely manner. I would highly recommend doing business with Jon and 4 Brothers, as they exemplify the way businesses should be run.

I've done business with Jon for years. He is someone I would feel extremely comfortable trusting helping me make the best decision with the biggest financial asset a typical person makes in their life... dealing with a house. His knowledge of real estate sales and renovations exceeds that of most agents and general contractors who deal with only one of those aspects of the business. He is a true professional.

I worked with 4Brothers to sell the house of a client for whom I had power of attorney. House was quite run-down, so didn't try to use realtor. My interaction with 4Bros employees and reps was completely satisfactory. No problems at all.

My experience with Four Brothers was very satisfactory. Kevin in particular was a wonderful resource. He spent a lot of time with me - I was nervous about selling, but he made it easy and comfortable. I know who I would call if I sold another house.

My husband and I lived in a three bedroom home, that need a lot of work and was draining our bank account . We reached out to 4brothers buy houses. Kevin came out made us an offer that was fair, we sold as is . They helped with our relocation to a one bedroom condo and helped us close on both properties at the same title company on the same day. I have told my friends and family about this company.
