About us…

We are Alex and Viktor, and we joined forces to begin this business in 2015. We are a small but mighty family business dedicated to providing knowledgeable and personable experience to our homeowners. Our goal is to help homeowners resolve difficult real estate situations that are complicating their life. We put ourselves in the homeowner’s shoes and come up with the best solution to the problem; sometimes we recommend the homeowner to take our fair and fast cash offer, while other times we recommend the homeowner to list with a real estate agent. In some situations we connect homeowners with government and private organizations to help resolve their real estate problem.

Our Backgrounds


Alex has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in aerospace engineering and business administration from University of Colorado and MIT. Before his real estate career, Alex was a member of an engineering team building communication satellites and then a manager at Boeing building airplanes. Therefore, he is a detail-oriented and highly skilled problem-solver, which comes in handy when trying to help homeowners in complicated situations.

Cofounder Alex Romanov and his wife LIsa

Viktor has a nursing degree from Washington State University and for many years worked as a nurse at Seattle Children’s Hospital saving infant lives and keeping hopes alive for countless families. Viktor is kind, patient and focused on the homeowner and how to solve their real-estate problems with compassion. We understand that life can put people in all kinds of undesirable situations that they need help getting out of quickly, which is where we step in.


We Know About Life’s Difficulties Because We’ve Been There

Viktor’s parents moved to the U.S. when Viktor was three years old because they were facing persecution back home and they could not live in the country without feeling endangered. After the move, Viktor’s family settled in Port Orchard, WA and his parents worked hard to support a young family. However, sometimes their efforts were not enough and Viktor and his siblings went to bed hungry. Viktor started working when he was 11 to help his family and quickly learned about the kind of effort that you have to put into a job. A few years later Viktor worked and studied at the same time and learned first hand about life as a poor college student.

Finally, when Viktor graduated from nursing school, he took a job at Seattle Children’s Hospital. In his job he was responsible for keeping babies alive while they battled life-threatening diseases. He built relationships with the parents and helped them cope with the sickness of their child. Often times Viktor sacrificed comfort to support his young family and worked night shifts to earn a bit more.

When the 2008 housing crisis came, Viktor helped his parents after they nearly lost their house to foreclosure. He dipped into his savings to help his parents save their house. Because of Viktor’s life experiences, he knows what hard times feel like and he always advocates for people who are on the verge of losing their home.

Alex’s family moved to the U.S. when he was nine years old because of a lack of jobs. During the first few years in Upstate New York, Alex’s family was on food stamps while his dad was finishing his studies. Alex learned that you could earn a little money by recycling bottles and cans and so he worked every day after school to save up for toys that his parents could not afford. Alex went to school wearing the same clothes nearly every day because there was not enough to pay for new clothes.

When he was in University he lived with his parents because he didn’t have enough to afford a dorm room and worked full and part-time to support himself. Alex graduated with student debt even though he went to an in-state school, so he knows how difficult it can be to pay it down when living expenses pile up.

Therefore, when we talk to homeowners who are facing challenges in their life, whether they’re health-related, financial, or family-focused, we sympathize with the homeowners because we know how much pain and anguish these issues can raise because we lived through them ourselves. We never judge and we always try to understand and relate.

Our Purpose

We started our business because we saw family and friends hurt by the 2008 housing crisis. People close to us lost or almost lost their homes when they were let go from their jobs when the economy sunk and businesses closed. We saw and read about banks unfairly seizing homes, kicking out homeowners, and selling houses at the courthouse steps. We decided that we wanted to help homeowners, inform them about all of the options available to them, and buy houses from people in situations where it makes sense to sell.

When a homeowner contacts us we strive to find out the key details of the situation and what the homeowner is trying to achieve. Then we analyze the situation together with the homeowner and discuss the possible solutions to the problem. Often times people realize that there are resources out there that can help them to avoid selling their house altogether. For people who decide that they do want to sell their house, we discuss the different options that are available to them such as selling with an agent, self-listing, or selling to us for cash. Once the homeowner picks the option that works best for them we go to work and follow our reliable processes to reach the homeowner’s goal as quickly as possible.

Knowledge is Power

In our business, we strive to educate homeowners so that they can make the best-informed decision that suits their needs and their unique situation. We believe that knowledge is power and we are happy to share it with all of the sellers with whom we work. This makes them become better homeowners and home-sellers in the process. When we meet with our customers we lay out all of the available options on the table and discuss each option in detail.

We are focused on continuously improving our service; all of our team members spend up to a quarter of their time on training and education, therefore we are highly skilled and can solve nearly all homeowner problems.

Smooth Sailing if You Work With Us

Over the years we built up our processes and procedures to work optimally for the homeowner. Our goal is to provide a smooth and efficient process of selling your home. We are effective at what we do because we measure everything and take process improvement seriously. People who work with us always comment on how smooth the transaction felt and that the experience of selling us their house was easier and more pleasant then they expected it to be. The keys to this successful recipe are well-tested processes, a well-trained team, and open two-way communication to update the seller on every step of the transaction. Because of these three factors, our business runs smoothly and people enjoy working with us and recommend us to their friends and relatives.

How We Overcome The Bumps In The Road

We value transparency and therefore we are always communicating with our customers about the progress of the transaction and any issues that we foresee. Because some real estate transactions are complicated (title issues, bankruptcies, difficult tenants, etc.) they require more time and additional resources. However, we always inform the seller if we expect difficulties during the transaction and describe the steps that we will be taking in detail. This way the homeowner is not surprised and has confidence in our ability to resolve their real estate problem. While customers with simple real estate transactions rave about working with us because of the speed, efficiency, and great communication, we are most proud of the challenging and thorny transactions that we help to resolve. Please see a list of different real estate problems that we’ve been able to solve in the section below.

Credibility and Transparency

We believe that these days you should not trust every business you come into contact with, especially on the Internet, and we feel it’s always smart to complete a background check on the company you are dealing with. We pride ourselves on being honest and transparent, so we are happy to put it all on the table and publicly share our details with you!
