Our Story Minnesota Cash Home Buyers
“Dave Gallogly- Managing Partner” While in college, I got the real estate bug and a desire to help people, and it has never left me.
Growing up in the county near a small town in northern Iowa called Hampton. My parents impressed upon me the importance of family, faith, hard work, and being part of a community was important. Being in a large family made it difficult for our parents to finance our college careers. Starting school at the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) in 1981, but I needed to work my way through school in construction building farm structures during the summer months to pay the bills. These years taught me much about working hard and enjoying the process of figuring out how things went together. This was the point where I started to fall in love with real estate and the people you would contact along the way. After graduating from UNI majoring in Interior Design, I moved to Minneapolis St Paul in 1986 to take a job as an Interior Designer in Dayton’s department store (Macy’s). Being a farm kid in the city, I was excited to expand my passion for housing and helping people find solutions to their problems. Working as an Interior Designer, I was able to listen to people to determine their plans and help guide them to a solution that best fits them and their home.
Love of Real Estate and People Emerged
During this time, I always loved real estate and purchased and rented houses. Part of that passion was taking something that was needing some help and come up with a plan to fix the problems. The first house we purchased back in the early 1990s, from a nice couple who needed to sell. They did not have the knowhow or finances to do the repairs that needed to be completed. I was called by a mutual friend to see if I was interested in buying the house from them as is. They had someone out who “Buys Homes for Cash” and was offered a meager price for their house. After a conversation on the phone, we all sat down in person and came up with a win-win situation where I was able to buy the house as-is, and they were ready to buy a new home that fit their needs. Our families are still friends to this day, and it all comes down to how we both felt it was fare how we structured the sale.
Fast forward another 30 years, and we are still doing those kinds of win-win situations with people who need or want to sell their homes as-is. The difference is now we have grown into a business, and this is all we do. My passion for helping people and working in real estate has become a family business. Not everyone works full time for Minnesota Cash Home Buyers, but they all do apart and live the values I learned growing up on a farm in Iowa: Family, faith, working hard, and being part of a community.
We Love Figuring Out Solutions For People Dealing With Real Estate
Most of us go through life, wanting to enjoy ourselves and have a desire to love and be loved. But, life has a way of taking us down paths, we didn’t think we would go down. Facing divorce, foreclosure, probate, IRS tax liens, owning a house that needs repairs but doesn’t have the money to make the repairs, sound familiar? We have helped guide people through these situations to an outcome that they can live with. Some of these journeys need to be addressed as fast as you can, so the issue’s impact does not get worse. We sit down and try to explain what your options are related to your house and the different outcomes depending on what decision you choose to make. You are always in control, and it’s done with the utmost care and respect. Even though sometimes the truth is hard to take when our clients hear it.
