About Us

American Home Buyer is a local and family-owned real estate investment company that started here in Houston in 1998. We are not realtors. We specialize in buying residential properties in “as-is” condition. We have bought and sold hundreds of houses, townhomes, and condominiums in the Houston and surrounding areas (from Conroe to Galveston and from Katy to Baytown). The Better Business Bureau gives us an A+ rating, so you know you are dealing with trusted professionals.

Congratulations American Home Buyer in Houston! Winner of the Better Business Bureau Distinction Award in 2015, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023.

Locally Owned and Operated Right Here in Houston… We’ll Meet You Face-To-Face!

As you can tell from our testimonials from happy customers, American Home Buyer strives to make sure every home we buy puts the customer’s needs first. Of course, we need to make a profit, but you must get a fair price, so we always look for “win-win” solutions. We are real people, all living right here in the Houston area, with families just like you. We will meet with you and be accessible to you by phone anytime you need us through this process.

We also know it’s not just about the money.

You have other needs which we will meet. Obviously, you need someone you can trust, but you really need a buyer who understands and respects your situation. Not only do we understand “sticky” selling situations, but we can patiently walk you through these situations and answer all your questions along the way without wanting to back out as a retail buyer would. We regularly buy homes from homeowners going through a divorce, probate, foreclosure, bankruptcy, relocation, Medical Bills, Tired Landlords, inheritance, retirement, too many repairs, or just needing to move without the hassle of marketing their home. This is our expertise! But more than that…

We are Not Buying Your Home To Live In It!

Since we are not buying your home to live in it, we can close whenever YOU are ready. We can buy your house without needing it repaired or cleaned up. If you chose our cash option, then our offer is guaranteed and final. This means that we will not have contingencies in our offer as a retail buyer would. (A retail buyer’s offer will have contingencies for obtaining financing, approval of inspections, and a sufficient appraisal.) When we make a cash offer to buy your home, that is it. We have already done our own in-house appraisal and inspection, and we don’t need financing. We guarantee you closing at that price and can then move on with confidence with the next steps in your life. If you chose our Wholesale option, then the offer is contingent upon us securing an end buyer (this is explained in the agreement you will sign).

Who We Are NOT

  • Some Home Buying companies claim to send you on to “multiple investors.” These are usually wholesalers who won’t really buy your house, but flip the contract to other investors who will hopefully buy it. If we make you a cash offer, we are prepared to actually close and buy the house. We can also wholesale your property to our partner investors, but if we think that is a good option for you, we will always explain this clearly upfront.
  • We do not employ pushy salespeople and never use pressure tactics. We understand this decision is a big part of your life. A decision that requires a clear understanding of your options, with time to decide what is best for you. When we make you an offer, we will always be respectful of all your needs and rights, like your privacy and your time.
  • We are not realtors. We are an actual buyer for your property.
So… If you need a company you can trust with a proven record of being open and honest, you have found us! American Home Buyer has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and if you would like to read our history with them, just visit the BBB site.

The American Home Buyer Team

Mika Self

“Our Core Values are not just words on the wall, but truly a way of life. I am humbled to lead a team that embodies honoring God in all we do. Watching God work, in and through our team, to serve families that need to sell their house, is a true blessing. Other than time with my family, Monday is my favorite day.”

“The joy of helping others helps me excel in my role at American Home Buyer. I also cherish the supportive, prayerful environment and the wonderful people I work with. My Christian faith guides my work, embodying the principle of ‘What Would Jesus Do’.  Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my boys, rollerblading and cooking. My parents, who are retired Majors in the Salvation Army, instilled in me a strong sense of service which inspires me to meet and serve amazing people every day.”

“The most exciting part of working at American Home Buyer is the God First Culture. Then comes my interest in Real Estate and passion for being a leader.

But I most love my family, a loud and talented mess of beautiful and amazing people!”

“Working for American Home Buyer allows me to live out my faith in Christ as well as pursue my passions for Marketing and Business.

I enjoy drumming, painting, and spending time with my family, especially our 8 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. “

Carter Hedges

“I think the thing I like most about working at American Home Buyer is how kind all my colleagues are and our unique prayer culture – we pray about everything! On weekends, I like to explore national parks with my large family and three dogs. Surprisingly, I’m quite acrobatic from my parkour days. Once, I even survived getting lost on a mountain! As a Christian, I strive to excel in all I do and I enjoy seeing happy faces when I can lend a helping hand. “

Matthew Longoria

“I’m a tech enthusiast driven by my passion to help others. At American Home Buyer, I love our welcoming family environment where we work as a team towards a common goal, serving God.  My role allows me to utilize resources to help others. Our Christ-like values inspire me to better myself in all I do. In my free time, I enjoy watching sports, playing video games, chess, running, and horse riding. You’d be surprised to know, I’ve ridden in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo parade! “
