About Us- Who are we?
We are a local family-owned business in Hixson, TN focused on solving real estate problems by providing speed, convenience, and peace of mind to sellers. We solve problems that are generally outside of the realm that realtors work in, and because we are investors we have the flexibility to offer you multiple solutions when buying and selling property, plus we are direct buyers so you don't have to deal with endless showings. We believe that everyone should be able to sleep well at night, and, as investors, we have options that traditional sellers do not. We take pride in creating relationships that last, and provide a customer service experience that is tailored to you.
I'm originally from Minnesota and Rachel is from Atlanta, we met in 2014 on a study abroad and got married the following year, and had our first baby (Ivy) in December 2019. Like most young couples starting out, we were broke and struggled to find any traction. We had lots of dreams and ambitions, but we struggled to see past our monthly bills, so we knew we needed to make some major changes. I had read books and listened to lots of podcasts about real estate, business, and various ways of investing (in addition to my Entrepreneurship major), but in early 2019 we decided to jump all in and take action.
Since taking that leap, we have grown in more ways than we thought possible, and we've become very connected and involved in the community here in Chattanooga. We love the area and the people, and we want to do our part to see Chattanooga and it's residents thrive. Helping breathe new life into a neighborhood by renovating a property and helping a family out is a very rewarding experience and it's what I see ourselves doing the rest of our lives.
Many people know there’s money to be made in real estate, but very few people take action because there’s a level of risk involved, it’s hard work, and honestly it’s terrifying starting a business. Beyond the potential money to be made, there’s a real impact to make in people’s lives that’s much more fulfilling than the paycheck- helping someone avoid foreclosure, providing a real estate solution in a divorce case, or solving a real estate headache for a grieving family after the loss of a loved one. We aim to make a tangible difference in ordinary peoples’ lives and build a better future for ourselves so that we can pursue what we’re most passionate about and create a lasting legacy for our children. We do what we do to make an impact on the Chattanooga community
Fun facts about us:
We love hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, practical jokes, traveling, learning other cultures, board games, animals, and dad jokes (ok that’s more of my thing...if you have a good joke to share please message me!). Rachel works as a dog groomer at The Ark Pet Spa & Hotel in Chattanooga (south-side location) and she loves dogs, horses, and Netflix documentaries. We’re both members of Rock Bridge Church in Hixson, Rachel helps with the kids, I serve coffee on the welcome team, and we're part of a small group together. I’m a member of F3 Chattanooga, a men’s group fitness and community group. I’m an avid reader and podcast listener, mainly- history, theology/religion, philosophy, business, investing, and economics (hit me up if you have any recommendations for me or want any from me!). I have also studied 2.5 years of French, 2.5 years of Spanish, and 1.5 years of Arabic. Ivy's favorite book is "Llama Llama Red Pajama" and she loves saying hi to people.
