Mike and Tim met while living in the Windy City after college. Their interests in real estate, construction, and an abundance mindset brought them together. They began by helping each other build their individual real estate companies. During that process, they witnessed an extensive amount of unethical behavior in “off-market” home sales. These transactions were littered with lying, shadiness, and pushy sales tactics. The homeowner was always left with the short end of the stick!
They realized that they could build a better company that provided only transparent, honest off-market transactions. A company built on win-win solutions. Built on relationships. They decided to combine forces and founded Green Street Home Buyers – the rest is history.

About Green Street Home Buyers
Green Street is a real estate investment company based out of Durham, NC that serves the entire state of North Carolina. We are a small team of investors who buy properties directly from Homeowners and Landlords with all-cash offers. Because we buy “off-market” there are no extra fees, commissions, or expenses when we buy your house. The price we agree on is the amount you’ll receive at closing.
You can choose the closing date. We’ve streamlined the house selling process to remove agents, banks, and contractors, so we can close very fast. We always buy properties in “as-is” condition. No repairs are required as we perform any renovations needed ourselves.
We specialize in providing win-win solutions to help property owners get out of sticky situations. We often deal with situations like foreclosure, tax problems, burdensome/ugly properties, inherited properties, bad tenants, or anything else (we’ve seen it all). Green Street focuses on providing you with a solution to your situation so you can focus on the things you love to do.
