The Nation’s Largest Senior
Home Buyer Network
The Nation’s Largest Senior Home Buyer Network
As-Is is OK at Mom’s House
Our founders began buying houses in 2011 to give seniors and their families an easier, less stressful way to sell mom’s house.
As our experience grew so did our knowledge of the senior living industry and we realized what a barrier selling the family home could be for community operators as well.
Mom’s House sought to raise the bar; today we have the nation’s largest network of certified home buyers experienced in as-is senior home buying and we work directly with senior living operators from coast to coast.
Our Mission & Vision
To help families solve one of their biggest challenges in the journey to senior care by offering an easier, less stressful way to sell mom’s (or dad’s) house without cleaning it up, cleaning it out or paying realtor fees. Through our nationwide network of certified home buyers, we purchase senior homes outright, in as-is condition so families can close within weeks instead of months and get mom the care she needs.
Our ecosystem is made up of senior care and service providers across the United States that includes our network of certified home buyers, senior living operators, placement agents, home healthcare providers, downsizing experts and elder law attorneys working in alignment to ease each family’s burden in the journey to senior care respectfully and compassionately.
With the nation’s largest network of home buyers, we purchase homes outright without realtor fees and in as-is condition to solve one of the biggest challenges families face in the journey to senior care. Our trusted network of certified home buyers offers local coverage in cities across the United States and is trained to guide families through our easy, stress-free process with compassion and respect so families can close within weeks instead of months.
As a St. Louis native, Phillip’s passion is Cardinals baseball and Blues hockey. When he’s not watching sports or with his family, he’s helping other families solve big problems by buying houses. While he started as a home builder and developer, he quickly transitioned to buying houses from seniors or the adult children.
Over the last 22 years Phillip has bought hundreds of houses and has a passion for working with families; his sellers love him! There isn’t much he hasn’t seen, so creativity and care are his go-to when it comes to buying houses and helping families solve some of their biggest problems. It’s his entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to making the home selling process easier for seniors that led him to create this nationwide network of Mom’s House Certified Buyers.
Phillips has two young sons, Drake and Sterling, and a super wife, Melissa, who’s all he could have ever dreamed of. (Well, except maybe his lifelong dream to one day own the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team. #baseballnut) He is an avid tennis player and also loves playing hockey with his two boys. Phillip volunteers for multiple charities, including Brace for IMPACT 46, an organization that supports youth programming in both St. Louis and Haiti, and Special Spaces, which builds custom rooms for terminally ill children suffering from cancer.
