Justin Smits | Co-Owner

I began my investing career in 2011 with tax lien investing and diversified over the years into rehabbing houses, rentals, and private lending.  In 2015, I transitioned to a full-time investor with a focus on wholesaling houses. In 2016, I joined Adrien Chabot as an owner of Region Home Buyers.

Together we’ve been buying 80 or more houses annually in the Northwest Indiana area.  Our focus is on finding off-market deals to wholesale, rehab or keep as rental properties. I love helping people who want to sell a property without waiting months or years to close. If you have questions about your situation or a specific property you want to sell, we will listen and answer any questions you may have.

Adrien Chabot | Co-Owner

Real estate has been a passion of mine since I was a teen after seeing my uncle purchase and manage several small multi-family properties. I became a landlord by default in 2012 when I turned my personal residence (which was heavily upside down) into a rental. In 2015, I was introduced to wholesaling and it caught my attention as a way to get into real estate without a lot of my own money. I did 3 deals that fall and was hooked. I quit my sales job of 8 years to go full time in January 2016.

Since then, I’ve completed over 150 transactions, dozens of flips, and loaned on several projects for other investors. I received my real estate license in July 2017 and have closed over $5M in sales so far. I enjoy teaching and mentoring others in real estate investing. Most of all I enjoy seeing the weight lift from people shoulders when we are able to solve their real estate problems by quickly buying their house.
