Hear What Others Have To Say…
"We're so glad someone who cares bought it..." "It was in bad shape for awhile. There was a lot of tenant turnover. We're so glad someone who cares bought it and fixed it up. It looks so much better now."
"Even though it was a challenging situation, you stayed on top of things and really worked though the process with me."
Thank you so much.
"Janel has been my angel in resolving a challenging situation...""Janel has been an amazing asset in working with me 3000 miles away to evict my renter, clean up the house and set up a doable contract to buy my house. She has been very professional and easy to work with. Janel has been my angel in resolving a challenging situation.
I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home."
"My ex started to fix up one bathroom, but didn't finish...""The house needs a lot of work and is bigger than I need now. The roof is leaking. One of the eaves needs repaired. My ex started to fix up one bathroom, but didn't finish, so the walls and shower were never installed. The flooring is in bad shape, and it needs many other small repairs. I'm not able to fix it. Family members want me to fix it up, replace the roof, and sell it, but that's a lot of work. They aren't the ones who will be doing all that work! I just want to sell it to someone who can fix it, and move into a smaller place."
Thanks for buying my house as-is!

"We're ready to cut back and retire soon. It's time to sell our 6-plex.""We manage our own properties and do all the work ourselves. It's hard to take a vacation. It's time to sell one of our properties and not work so hard. We're in our 70s now. We're ready to cut back and retire soon. We've owned this 6-plex for 12 years. We've made some updates, and tried to keep up on the repairs. It's generally in good shape. We've spoken to our CPA and have a plan."
"So you want to buy rentals?? We're happy to sell to you!"
"After my parents passed, my siblings and I had been cleaning up their property."
"We could have gotten estimates, hired a contractor, split the cost of fixing and remodeling it, then listed it and sold it... but we'd probably just break even on getting our cost back. There was a lot to do, and it would take awhile to get the work done, especially if we tried to do some of the work ourselves.
We just didn't have the time or extra money to put into it. It made sense to just sell it as-is for cash, so we could all move forward. It was a relief."
"Closing was easy and went pretty smoothly, and the price was fair.""It's the last of a bunch of rentals we needed to sell. We didn't have the time or money to fix it up and keep it as a rental. We needed to get out of the landlord business.
It's good to be able to move on.
