House Heroes: America’s Super Home Buyers!
My name is Lucas Machado – founder of House Heroes. We buy houses, land, condos, and apartments. Once we purchase property, we fix-and-flip, rent, or build.
Our company was founded by me and our co-founder Earl White. We grew up together in Kearny, New Jersey. For years, we talked about working together in real estate, even just to buy one multi-family house. In 2013, we started looking at properties. Fast forward 5 years and we’ve purchased over 100 houses!
Our goal is to work in real estate till we are old and gray with our children joining the company. House Heroes is a family and friend owned business. Earl and I were “Best Man” in each other’s weddings. Our acquisitions manager is Nick Machado (my brother) and our media manager is Meghan White (Earl’s sister). Our mission is to help people sell quick!
