Hello and welcome! We are Alex and Viktor. Back in 2015, we joined forces to start our small but mighty family business, dedicated to providing knowledgeable and personable experience to the homeowners we work with. We founded our business to help homeowners resolve difficult real estate situations that are complicating their lives. Whenever we work with a homeowner, we always put ourselves in the their shoes. We want to help you and all of the homeowners we work with, to find the best solution for their personal situation. Sometimes we recommend that the homeowner takes our fair and fast cash offer, while other times we recommend that the homeowner lists their home with a local real estate agent. In some situations, we are able to connect homeowners with government and private organizations to help resolve their real estate problems.
Alex holds a bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering and a master’s degree business administration from the University of Colorado and MIT respectively. Before getting his start in real estate, Alex was a member of an elite engineering team building communication satellites. He was also a manager at Boeing building airplanes. Alex is a detail-oriented and highly skilled problem-solver, which comes in handy when trying to help homeowners who are facing complicated situations. He is happily married and enjoys traveling and playing beach volleyball with his wife, Lisa.
Viktor has a nursing degree from Washington State University. Before entering real estate, Viktor worked at the Seattle Children’s Hospital saving infant lives and keeping hope alive for countless families. Viktor is kind, patient, and compassionate. He is always focused on the homeowners and how to best solve their problems. Viktor is a husband to his beautiful wife, Angelina and a loving father of two children, who keep him very busy! We understand that life can put people in all kinds of undesirable situations that can be helped by a fast and fair sale of an unwanted house.
We Know About Life’s Difficulties Because We’ve Been There Ourselves
Viktor’s parents moved to the U.S. when he was only three years old. His family was facing persecution back home and they could not live in the country without feeling as if they were in danger. 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 years old to help his family, and quickly learned about the 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 college student.
When Viktor graduated from nursing school, he took a job at Seattle Children’s Hospital. In his role, 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 ensure the house wasn’t lost. 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 in his birth country. 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, 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 wasn’t enough money to buy a new wardrobe.
When he was in University he lived with his parents because he didn’t have enough money to afford a dorm room. He worked full-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 while 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. We have lived through these hardships ourselves. We never judge and always do our best to relate and understand.
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 because 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 made 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 with the homeowner and discuss the possible solutions to the problem. People will often 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 selects the option that works best for them, we get 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 review all of the available options 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 have refined our processes and procedures to work optimally for every homeowner. Our goal is to provide a smooth and efficient process for selling your home in the area. We are effective at what we do because we measure everything and take process improvement very 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 than anything they had expected. 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, people enjoy working with us, and they will often 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 offer, we are most proud of the challenging and thorny transactions that we are able to help resolve. Please see a list of different real estate problems that we’ve been able to solve in the section below.
