We’re A Family Business That’s Ready To Serve

sale home by owner Greenville

Pitt Home Buyers was started by the Johnson family in 2018. After moving to North Carolina in 1996, we began noticing that the home selling process was becoming progressively more complex and long. This posed a real challenge for people who were going through divorce or foreclosure and needed a fast exit, so we started pounding the pavement and figured out ways we could help!

Now full disclosure, we’re a Christian company. We get that it may deter some people from working with us, but we conduct business in a way that we believe is pleasing to God. We believe in being straightforward and transparent about how we operate. And get this… It works!

Hi, I’m Mike Otranto and this is my assistant, Ruby the Beagle (she keeps up the morale around the office). We work closely with Pitt Home Buyers and are experienced rehabbers. Real estate has been my passion since the mid-2000s, and I’ve always preferred to buy houses directly from owners and not deal with banks, auctions, or 3rd parties. I believe in working locally with the people of my community. If you need to sell your house in Raleigh NC, I’m here to help!

James Hinton – Master Wholesaler

Hello! I’m James Hinton! I began learning about real estate in 2010 when I began shadowing a close friend, who subsequently taught me everything he knows! I moved to Atlanta in 2012 and immediately sought out investors and mentors so I could further my education and grow my industry knowledge. Soon after I returned to North Carolina so I could settle down, help solve real estate problems, change situations, and improve clients’ lives!

Creative Solutions That Fit Your Needs

Everyone’s situation is different, so whenever we sit down with a new client we make it a point to understand your specific needs. Whether you’re behind on your mortgage payments, you’ve inherited a property that you don’t want, or you have horrible tenants and you’re just plain fed up. All of these challenges have different solutions and our goal is to educate you on all of the ones that are most relevant to you.

Realtors know how to list on the MLS and Wholesalers know how to make cash offers, and that’s pretty much it. Pitt Home Buyers is different because we’re able to use our creative mindset and investing experience to develop effective solutions to life’s real estate challenges.
