Who We Are
We Buy Homes in Eastern PA
Why did we start Heart & Home Properties?
Over the summer, while discussing real estate, April, Kate and John discovered they had several things in common. First, both April and Kate come from healthcare backgrounds. April, as a Respiratory Therapist and Kate as a licensed Nursing Home Administrator. The second, was that many of the houses that they purchased in the past were from seniors who needed to go to the next level of care- whether it be personal care or a nursing home. Families were struggling with the overwhelming task of cleaning out a home, fixing up the home and selling it to pay for care.
In the past, families had to find us. More and more we would hear from families: “Why don’t more people know your service exists?” We started wondering the same thing! We didn’t want families to have to struggle to find us and hear about our services. Together, we brainstormed ideas on how we can get in front of people to let them know about our services.
Today, Heart & Home Properties specifically works with only the senior population and the hurdles they and their families face when selling a home. Our goal is to alleviate stress, streamline the process and ensure smooth transactions for our clients.
With over 13 years of experience in healthcare, real estate and construction, we are not your typical real estate company. We have a deeper understanding of what families are going through & go the extra mile to meet their needs and give them options to find solutions for their real estate needs.
