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.
