As you think about selling you’re probably wondering…

Which Home Buying Companies Are Legitimate?


John Medina here – co-founder of the John Medina Buys Houses

We buy houses all over Los Angeles and Orange County. I started in real estate in 2013 (more on that later). 

When I started in this business my mission was simple: Do good business with people and make money doing it. Since then I’ve purchased nearly 100 properties and I’ve done it gaining trust and having respect for the people I choose to work with.

We believe before you do you do business with anyone, you should know what they stand for. It is only then, will you know if they’re a legitimate home buyer, or a flim flam man.

For us, that begins with understanding our core values. Please take a second to watch the video below to find out more about what we at John Medina buys houses stands for!

Why I Set Out To Be The Most Trusted Home-Buying Company In Los Angeles.

My Name is John and my background is in Plumbing.I spent 25 years as a commercial plumber doing it for tons of high rise buildings and universities all over Los Angeles. In 2013 I decided my days of crawling under houses was done and I decided to take my knowledge of construction and apply it to flipping houses.

That’s when my company John Medina Buys Houses was born.

My goal when starting the company was to conduct business using the same values I had when I was a plumber.

And that was:

  1. Shoot straight with people. 
  2. Do what you say you’re gonna do.
  3. Be fair and leave people in better situations than when you found them.

You would think this is common sense but it wasn’t.

Too many guys in my industry lie, cheat, and scam to get business. So in order to do well all I focus on is…

Doing good business with people by being fair and upfront. 

Solve their problems and provide an easy stress-free experience!

It worked in plumbing and it works to this day in real estate.

I knew that in this industry there wasn’t exactly a stellar reputation.

And I wanted to change that…


I Wanted to end the search for a Legitimate Home Buying Company In Los Angeles.

And that’s exactly we did.

We didn’t want a slimy snake-oil salesman looking to take advantage of retirees and seniors to be the only option.

We wanted to be a company people can trust. 

At John Medina Buys Houses, we’re focused on providing you with a life-changing solution and ensuring the process is simple, fast and fair. 

Like we did with David…

John Medina Buys Houses sets a different standard for selling your home. We go the extra mile by offering services not found in the typical sale. 

Our team is upfront, honest and caring. Regardless of your situation, we provide an easy home sale on your terms. No hassle, no stress. 

But beyond just buying houses, we are not some faceless company. We are part of the local community and we’re invested here. We live and work in the same places as our customers and strive to make it better.

Why should you care?

Why should this matter to you?

Listen, I’m not gonna sit here and tell you all the warm and fuzzies without getting to the brass tax.

So here’s the deal...


We Buy Houses For Cash Near You, Right In Your Neighborhood.

We are a real estate company and we buy and sell houses for homeowners who don’t want to go the traditional route.

We are not hiding the fact that we are making a profit on the homes we buy. And, just so you’re clear on what our business does here it is…

Our basic formula is this:

  1. Our company buys houses at a small discount. (Usually a house that needs some work).
  2. We (take on the headaches) fix up that house to be the nicest on the block. 
  3. We put the house back on the market and sell it for a profit.

That’s it.

In fact here is some of our work…


We do have other means, such as our retail division with agents on staff and buying rentals but “flipping houses” is the basic nuts and bolts of it.

We are approaching close to 100 houses that we’ve bought and flipped and over time we’ve gotten very good at it.

And That means…


An instant house sale without all the headaches is in your reach.

Our proven home-buying process allows us to make better offers to you.

This allows us to actually close on the properties we make offers on (unlike many “homebuyers”)

This allows the homeowner to be done with the sale, quickly and easily.

And what’s the one thing we constantly hear our homeowners say once the process is done?

I can’t believe how easy that was!

– Every Customer ever
