What service do you provide to your customers? Ohio Cash Buyers is a family-owned home-buying business. Founded in 2014 with the goal of helping neighbors and improving communities, Ohio Cash Buyers solves a wide array of difficult and time-sensitive real estate problems that require creative and tenacious solutions. For those facing the possibility of foreclosure, or who have inherited a house or own a rental property they don't want to keep; for people preparing to downsize or move into assisted living facilities—Ohio Cash Buyers is there to help.
How do you decide what products or events will be offered to customers? We use our knowledge and resources to provide custom-built service solutions to our neighbors. It's really based entirely on their unique situations and needs.
What was your vision when you started the business? I went through a foreclosure myself many years ago, so I understand firsthand what kind of impact that has on someone, their family, and their entire future. I wanted to do what I could to spare others from having to go through it, too. From there, I expanded my knowledge base and network, and witnessed the Probate process, and brought that under my umbrella of expertise as well. As our team has grown, we've added local experts in various industries to improve our ability to achieve our goals of improving our communities!
Since you have owned the business, what accomplishment makes you the most proud? This is a tough one! It's so difficult to pick out just one example of the great successes we've achieved over the years. If I had to pick one, I think it would have to be the pure joy and relief we witness on our homeowner's faces when we've closed on their property, and they're finally free or whatever yoke they were carrying around their necks that came along with it - sometimes it's an entangled divorce full of stress and uncertainty, sometimes it's an elderly widow who has no family nearby and feels very alone and anxious, sometimes it's a family who has just lost a loved one and they no longer have to worry about the house full of years of hoarding and weeks of effort - at the end of the day, that's what makes it all so very worth what we do!
What is your most popular product or service? Our custom, no obligation fast cash offer is what usually prompts someone to reach out to us in the beginning. Once they start talking to us, they begin to realize all of the things we can do for them, and it's often a mixed bag of emotions and facing reality - but we're there with them every step of the way, and since we don't sugarcoat anything, they are grateful for a very objective and realistic approach to their situation. Even if we aren't the answer to their problems, chances are we know exactly who to connect them with that CAN help.
What is something new that customer can look forward to seeing at your business in 2021? We've added some amazing new team members this year already as we've expanded, allowing us to do even more!
What kind of charities or non-profit organizations does your business support? We're active in Raptor, Inc and do foster and release of some of their raptors. We also support the Southern Ohio Wolf Sanctuary, Fur a Good Paws, and the Clay County Animal Rescue and Shelter.
What would you like to say to your customers? Thank you for believing in us and trusting us to handle tough situations! We were very honored and humbled this past fall to win the Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Outstanding Ethics in the Marketplace, and we couldn't have done that without the community's support.
