About Us

Our Mission

Express Home Sales was founded to protect homeowners from predatory investor tactics when selling their home. We believe that every seller should get the most money out of their property, regardless of their situation or the home’s condition, and we take a “whatever it takes” approach with each and every one of our clients.
