Are there “We Buy Houses” companies that actually go out and just buy Houses that are Run Down and UGLY on purpose? I remember the first time I had heard the phrase and chuckled. I mean, I had thought I had seen a lot of ugly houses, but it wasn’t until I actually started investing […]

I don’t know about you, but when I purchased my first house, the process was overwhelming. So many documents and so many signatures. It was a little intimidating. In part, it was because I didn’t know what to expect and in part because I realized that I didn’t understand all of the documents that were […]

I purchase real estate and I am NOT going to ask you to pay a commission or a fee.…I pay CASH and because I do, I can close on the day that I tell you.
For those of you that already know me or have already called me you can attest that I answer my own phone and I return all phone calls. When you call me at 209-481-7780 you are calling me on the same number that my mother and my closest friends call me at.
I inherited my Fathers Sacramento house. The front porch was falling in, the walls had holes from being vacant and vandalized. The City fined us, red-tagged the property and forced us to put on a new roof so we had to get loans and we still couldn’t rent it out. I called one of those “I Buy Houses” signs and Peter Westbrook came out and made a cash offer. The House closed escrow and we got our money for a house we thought was worthless. Thanks Peter!Broderick R.
I inherited my mother's house with a mortgage. When my husband and I lost our jobs, we got behind in payments. Then the Bank posted a default with an auction date we didn’t know what to do. We didn’t have the $15,000.00 and we only had two weeks to do something. We called Peter Westbrook and form the beginning he was confident he could stop the bank. Within 4 days he bought the house with cash, paid off the bank and stopped the Foreclosure. Without Peter we would have lost everything.Brenda T
We inherited my parents house with a mortgage. We decided to rent it out. The tenants destroyed the house. I didn’t know what to do, I didn’t have the money to fix it and the city had already issued code violations.. I called an “I Buy Houses Stockton Sign” on a telephone pole and Peter Westbrook answered. In 4 days he paid the bank and bought my house. We would have lost everything if it weren’t for Peter Westbrook.Mike B
I needed to sell my House. I called a phone number I saw on a sign and talked to Peter Westbrook. The City of said that they were going to take away my vacant house, knock it down and send me the bill to do it. I did everything that I could to try to make them happy. A neighbor offered to buy the house and then Peter offered me twice as much. He did everything he said he would do and I just had to go to the Title Company and sign the papers. He did all of the work and now the City is his problem. Thank you Peter.Ann C.
We inherited our parents' house with one of our brothers living there. The property taxes had not been paid and it was in Tax default. We called Peter Westbrook and he found that the title was still in our parents' name, so the Stockton House never went through probate. Peter also found that there was an old auto loan that had a lien on the title and an old bankruptcy ruling to take care of that lien had never been filed with the courts. Peter handled everything including paying the back taxes, paying for the hiring a Probate Attorney and filing the probate and paying for and hiring a Bankruptcy Attorney to finalize the removal of the lien. He was patient, understanding and he took care of everything including evicting the tenants that were living in the house. We talked to real estate agents and other I buy house people. None of them had the answers for our situation. Without Peter we would have lost everything. We got paid cash.Steve H.
