About Berks County House Buyers And What Sets Us Apart From Others
WHY did we create this company? We have worked in real estate since 2004. Homeowners would come to me all the time and say: “I’m so frustrated! Real Estate Agents keep telling me I need to fix all these things in my home or clean it out to sell it!” These homeowners didn’t have the time or the money to pour into their house. They wanted a quick, easy solution to selling. As our company grew we came across even MORE homeowners in situations that real estate agents were not a solution for. Home owners that needed cash BEFORE they moved, homeowners that needed to move quickly… the list goes on! We created this company to provide a solution for homeowners that do not fit in the box of listing their home on the market. We solve unique problems when we buy houses in Berks County. WHY Berks County? My business partner & I are life long residents of Berks County, PA (You can read more about us and the rest of our team individually below!). We have been working in real estate for over 12 years and know the local market like the back of our hand. In 2018 she and I decided to join forces. We each had our own real estate businesses and we were both growing those businesses quickly & needed help! So we teamed up! And to this day, we contribute our continued growth to our philosophy of always going the extra mile for homeowners and being honest, trustworthy and reliable. For us, the transaction is not about the house. Its about getting a homeowner that is in a stressful, overwhelming, or difficult situation some relief!! We pride ourselves on providing options to homeowners to find a solution that is best for them. You can read more about our entire team below!
My name is April and believe it or not, I didn’t always work in real estate, I previously worked in healthcare which is why I naturally love helping people locally! My husband, son, and furry doberman dog friend and I live in West Lawn. Over the past 15 years we have helped hundreds of homeowners in Berks. We renovate houses and also buy rental properties. When I started my company my goal was to provide sellers with a one-stop shop for selling their home.
We provide you with multiple options for selling, with no obligation, and let YOU pick the option that works best for you and your family. We provide win-win solutions to help homeowners get out of their sticky situations… like owning a property in need of repair, owning a property behind on taxes, owning a property full of stuff that you don’t want to clean out, going through probate, or anything else. We make the process about you and your specific situation. Its safe to say that over 12 years as both a landlord who owns rentals and someone who buys houses to renovate.. I have seen it all and am confident I have the resources to help you!
My name is Modesta! And I am a lifelong resident of Reading, PA where I currently reside with my husband and daughters. I attended Kutztown University and have my Master’s degree from Alvernia College. I worked as an Internal Consultant for the Continuous Improvement Department at Carpenter Technology for over 5 years. My natural ability to problem solve led me to my current passion of helping distressed sellers with options to sell their home and provide a solution. I enjoy meeting homeowners and getting to the root of the problem to figure out how I can best serve them. I love educating home owners on their options for selling and walking them through the process from the time we view the home until the time they re-sell so that they feel comfortable and the process is stress-free! I am passionate about providing clean, affordable housing for residents of Berks and take pride in our renovation work and our rentals. Aside from helping homeowners in Berks, I also currently own L&S Equity which is my real estate company that holds rental properties and also provides consultation and education to other local landlords.
Justin is our project manager! He does all of our property inspections. Sellers will often meet him when he comes out to take pictures of a property. Justin knows his way around a house like no other and has an amazing gift for being able to visualize the potential a project has. Justin will come out, take pictures of the home and fill out an inspection report. This is an informal inspection. It helps us to understand what work will have to be done to the property to update it. When we renovate a home, Justin oversees and coordinates all of our contractors. He picks out all of our paint colors, designs and layouts for all of our projects. He has a great eye for things that oftentimes save us money which means we can pay the seller more for a property. For example, in some instances I feel the kitchen has to be completely replaced, but Justin will say: I think we can salvage those cabinets and paint them. 🙂 This saves us an enormous amount of money that we can then give to the seller by paying more for the property! Justin brings all the pictures back to Modesta & I and we review them with our contractor so that we can come up with a fair cash offer.
Meet Lorena! Lorena is also a lifelong resident of Berks County. Lorena owns Cozy Corner Transactions. Her company helps real estate investors and realtors coordinate a smooth transaction with homeowners and the title company. When we purchase a home, the whole transaction is processed with a title company. They file all the paperwork to make the transfer of the home complete! Lorena works with the title company to schedule the time and date of closing for all of our homeowners we work with. She also helps homeowners understand what paperwork they need to bring to closing and helps assist them with getting this in order. She helps to transfer over utilities as well. Lorena does everything she can to make the closing process as easy and as smooth as possible for our homeowners. The second you speak with her you will understand why she is PERFECT for this role! Lorena has such a calm energy about her and is super sweet to work with. We are blessed to have her on our team!
Meet Denise! Denise is that warm friendly voice you probably hear on the phone or the lovely woman you get a text message from 🙂 Denise does all of our intake. She speaks with sellers in the initial stages to help them understand what we do and to see if they are a good fit for a fair cash offer. Denise has years and years of customer service experience and is one of the sweetest people I know. We are so blessed to have her on our team. Like all of us at Berks County House Buyers, she is a life long resident of Berks County. She has a huge heart and prioritizes helping people over everything.. which is why we feel so lucky she joined our team. She fits right in with our core values and our motto of People Before Profits. Once a seller speaks with Denise, she will often then transfer them to Modesta or April so that we can get a better understanding of how we can help you move forward from an unwanted house.

More About What Sets Us Apart:
Berks County House Buyers has been serving the Berks County area for the past 12 years. As many other “house buying” companies have come and gone, Berks County House Buyers is still operating out of West Lawn.
We approach every situation looking for a solution that best fits your needs as a seller or if you’re handling the sale of the property for a loved one, we look to make the entire process easy.
Some home owners need to sell quickly. Some home owners have a home in need of significant repair. Some home owners have a home they can’t clean out in order to sell.
Over the past 12 years we have learned that every situation is different. There is no “one size fits all” offer for sellers.
Unlike other companies that buy homes cash, we don’t just give you a cash offer. We give you several options.
The market value, a cash offer, a monthly income offer; we see if your home might be a good fit for
our perfect tenant program. We let YOU choose the offer that best fits your needs.
