We are a family owned and operated company in Charlotte, North Carolina that specializes in providing home owners a stress free way to sell their homes, especially those who are stuck in tough situations.

We have a team of real estate and law professionals that we work with that allows us the ability to close on homes in as quick as 2 weeks.
We love houses, but most of all we love people. It is incredibly rewarding to provide solutions and relieve someone of a tremendous burden. Many people aren't even aware they have any options aside from selling a house "for sale by owner" or hiring a real estate agent. The third, and best option for some, is to sell directly to a real estate investor. We know that your home, or a loved-one's home, has incredible sentimental value and this is important to us. We are able to see past the needed repairs, damage, and complications when assessing your homes true value.

Predicting The Future Of Real Estate: Transacting In 2025
I’m no Nostradamus, but I'd like to take a stab at what the world of real estate transactions might look like in the year 2025. Yes, it’s only six or so years away, but with the speed at which technology is changing our world, to make predictions any further in the future would be purely speculation. I do like to think about what the future of our industry might look like because it gives us the ability to remain nimble and keeps us aware of trends and changes in the real estate world so we can adapt. Anyone who thinks that real estate transactions are immune to technology and shifting consumer trends will likely find themselves in a different line of work in the not-so-distant future.
First, consider what Uber and Airbnb have already done to the transportation and lodging industries. What these platforms allow consumers to do is fully vet and schedule the experience from their computer or smartphone before they ever get out of their chair. I believe this same model will eventually impact traditional real estate transactions. That means offers submitted and negotiated in real time through a technological platform — and not just by institutional hedge fund buyers or investors, but by individual homebuyers.
As our databases and algorithms for real estate pricing get more and more advanced and accurate, more and more people will be removed between real estate transactions. Think about all of the myriad platforms developed in the last 10 years to make even our biggest buying decisions faster and easier and give us confidence that our purchases are secure. In most of these platforms, technology is doing the heavy lifting and the involvement of human beings is reduced to simply completing the transactions.
I see homes in the future being listed not with a couple dozen still photos and a short description, but on a platform developed to immerse the buyer in a 3D environment where they are able to read reviews and comments on a property by anyone who has seen the property physically. Perhaps pre-loaded inspections and repair estimates included in the platform would remove the classically intensely uncomfortable period of requesting and negotiating repairs. How about links to service providers and anticipated maintenance schedules? Everything a prospective homeowner would need to know to make an informed buying decision.
The key here is information — and transmitting it quickly. People expect more and more information and to have to expend less effort to get it. They expect to have even their biggest purchases secured with a money-back guarantee or a trial period. It isn't too much of a stretch to think that real estate technology that mirrors these expectations would create a new world where the traditional agent transaction is just that — traditional. As the famous expression goes, "The speed of the leader determines the rate of the pack." But in this case, it's not the rate of the pack but the success. So what do we as real estate professionals do about it? We adapt our business model in real time, or we take a job fulfilling orders at an Amazon warehouse.
