About Connect Home Buyers

After graduating from Western Michigan University, founder and CEO Brett Riggins set his sights on real estate investing. He turned to his wife, Arin Riggins, and fellow Western Michigan alum, and sold her on the vision. 

The two founded Connect Home Buyers, LLC in 2017, and rehabbed four homes their first year.

At Connect Home Buyers, LLC, our team is highly motivated, knowledgeable, ethical, and resourceful. Qualified to handle any real estate transaction, our dedicated staff is committed to helping people with their real estate needs and making successful deals happen.

Our team of professionals has the integrity to follow up on our promises, and the expertise to navigate any transaction to ensure you’re fully informed for making the best decision possible.

Our Company Values

We are a home buying company with a great reputation and genuinely care about every homeowner we work with. Our goal is to help you find a solution to any real estate problems you are currently facing, even if that means not selling to us.

“Going through foreclosure myself, I know how tough moving can be, especially under strange circumstances. That’s why we founded Connect Home Buyers on time-lasting values and principles. We center our day-to-day operations and every interaction with clients on these core values.”

-Brett Riggins

Real people real solutions

We understand that selling your home is a huge decision, and we want you to be comfortable selling it. We are well aware of all the “we buy houses” companies offering the same service we provide, but they do not offer the same sincerity and commitment to create real connections with you, the seller. The majority of these companies’ sole interest is to turn a profit at your expense. Let’s be clear all businesses, including Connect Home Buyers, are in business to make a profit. When we work with our clients, we make sure that you are getting the most money out of your property while creating a win/win solution. It would be unfair to say there are no other companies out there that can match our cash offers and provide excellent professional service. That’s why we go a step beyond just buying your house. We want to help you. Just know we are only one call away from helping you resolve any of your real estate problems and that it’s completely free!
