Treating people as neighbors first

From an A+ BBB rated business.

We believe in putting people before profits.

We believe in treating others how we’d want to be treated. At its core, helping distressed homeowners find solutions to their problems is a human-to-human business.

While many home buying companies may focus on acquiring your home using pushy tactics, we focus on how we can help you find relief from your current situation. You may have a home in need of extensive repairs. Maybe you’re behind on payments and unsure of what to do. Perhaps you’ve inherited a home that you want to sell quickly.

You might even be on the brink of foreclosure.

Look, I get it. Who am I? Rae Hoffman, Owner of AMI House Buyers. I wasn’t born into the real estate life. In fact, I once went through a foreclosure.

I bought a home in Florida in 2006, right at the top of the market. A few months later, the market came crashing down. My county’s employment was primarily generated from new construction, and it was financially devastated by the crash. I would move shortly after to an area with more opportunity, unable to sell the home I’d left behind.

After years of paying the mortgage on an upside down, empty home without any market relief in sight, I stopped making payments, and the bank foreclosed. I’d had years of success under my belt, but the real estate market showed no mercy. I was frustrated at not being able to fix the issue. I felt utterly helpless.

So when I say I get it, I really do. Sometimes life happens. It’s one of the reasons I choose to work with distressed homeowners today.

Your situation does not determine your future; your attitude does.

I went on to found a successful marketing agency, enter the field of real estate investing, became a real estate agent, and eventually ended up in the position to be buying homes in cash without the seller paying any closing costs or commissions — and helping homeowners find help in tough situations.

Without experiencing that past, I wouldn’t have my present life as I know it. I wasn’t born a Texan, but I got here as quick as I could.

When Harvey hit, we did the only thing we know how to do — put our boots on the ground and worked to help the community rebuild. We volunteered our time wherever it was needed and raised over $20,000 via friends and colleagues to help Harvey-affected families in the greater Houston area.

AMI House Buyers is your bright spot in a dark time.

We exist to be a resource for you so that you can learn about all your options and find the best solution for your needs and situation. We respond to vulnerability with compassion and we protect your private information. AMI was built on three core strengths — skills in finding the people who need us, conquering challenges, and treating others as neighbors first.
