Signature Home Buyers was founded in 2008 by Glenn Schworm and Amber Higgins. Our mission is to change the perception of “flippers” by providing a high quality home at a very affordable price. Our slogan is “Turning Houses into Homes”. We specialize in residential single family homes all over the Capital Region. We began by doing all of the work ourselves on the first three homes and financed our early beginnings by selling off a car and maxing out credit cards. The next year, we decided to expand and sub-contract out all of the work, and we completed 12 homes that year. We now finance our company and homes from a base of private investors. Our goal is to build a systematic machine that is capable of 36+ homes rehabbed in a given year. We also wholesale properties to fellow investors that do not meet our specific buying criteria or timing. When we purchase houses, we pay CASH, and close quickly and hassle free. We strongly believe in win-win relationships and deals. Please feel free to check out our website below and sign up for our email notification list.

The Next Generation 
of Real Estate Investors

Where people who want to invest in real estate come to learn the systems and mindset of successful real estate investors. Our coaching, materials, and tools come from years of personally and actively investing in real estate. We are excited to share our passion for real estate investing with you, and we are confident that we provide the education needed to successfully invest in real estate.

VestorPRO provides the systems, tools, and coaching to get new investors started, and help existing real estate investor businesses grow. However, there are many systems, how-to books, information, and tools that are readily available on how to invest. Why don’t they work for most people? Why hire a coaching company? We are often told that what holds most people back is fear, lack or money, and lack of knowledge. One of the things that sets VestorPRO apart, is that we also coach on the kind of mindset a successful real estate investor has. The mindset is a large part of what takes a want-to-be investor to a successful real estate investor! In addition to the systems, tools, and coaching, we will help you work through the fear, and arm you with the education, tools, and resources you need in order to feel confident in taking the steps to becoming a real estate investor. Seldom does a flip go off without a hitch. How will you handle the problems that will arise? Would it be helpful to have a coach that can hold your hand through those hiccups? We’ll teach you the good, the bad, and the ugly.  We'll teach you how to flip houses, without flipping out!

VestorPRO offers a comprehensive real estate investing education. Our Coaching Program arms our students with what they need, combined with one-on-one coaching to catapult a successful real estate investing business.
