House Buyers - The FasterHouse Team

Why use FasterHouse?

FasterHouse is a locally owned and operated house buying company. We have been around buying houses since 2002. We love it! We love buying houses and we really love helping people.  That may not be exactly what you thought you were going to hear but it is true. We all live in St. Louis and want to help out the people of St. Louis and help out the community to make it a better place.

We are the Real Estate Family that Puts People First, and we do not take that lightly. We have been around for a long time and plan to be around for even longer. Our company has been through the ups and downs and we have grown stronger because of it. Every day we look for ways to impact and inspire our community.

We Believe in Giving Back.

A portion of our proceeds are donated to Greater Giving; a non-profit that aids locally in the education and advocacy of mental health and wellness.

We are not your average house buying company… if you have a house to sell, let us prove that to you. We could sit here and toot our own horn all day but would prefer to let others speak for us. We have been Accredited with the Better Business Bureau since 2006.

We are very proud of these reviews and strive every day to live up to them. We buy houses from home owners in a variety of situations and always put ourselves in their shoes. We make fair offers and make a difference in the lives of the people we buy from. We buy as much or more than any company in the St. Louis Metro area and we do that buy offer fair prices.

How many sellers have we helped?

Lives Impacted
Year Founded

FasterHouse has bought well over 1900 houses in the past 20 years. That is a huge number! Each and every one of those houses had a unique situation that needed some attention. Sometimes the sellers needed to close fast. Certain times the homes were in so much disarray they could not be sold traditionally. Other times the sellers lived out of state and needed to easily sell the house.

No matter the situation FasterHouse was there to help and make the process as pain free as possible. We would not have bought that many houses and continue to buy that many houses if we did not treat people fairly and do the right thing.

FasterHouse Does Things Differently.

FasterHouse is bigger than the one-person home buyers, which allows us to be fast and have the financial backing to purchase almost any home, but are also not a large, national buyer of “ugly” properties. Maybe you’ve seen the billboards?

We are flexible and agile with a strong and storied history. FasterHouse is proud to be the best home buying company in St. Louis. We truly believe that if you sell to us you will have pride knowing you sold your property to people that care.

If you think all cash home buyers are the same, then think again!

We are in this business to buy homes and help people. We do not have any “one page” contracts full of confusing lingo when purchasing your home. If you have multiple potential buyers come to your house you will see one of these contracts, no doubt.

We have the funds to purchase your house so we do not need to add any contingencies. You will not have to pay any real estate commissions to sell your house. We are the one and only trusted St. Louis home buyer and have all the ratings, rankings and testimonials to prove it to you or anyone else looking to sell their home.

We Give Back

FasterHouse partnered with Magnolia Real Estate in 2021 to form a 501(c)(3) non-profit Greater Giving. Since Greater Giving began the mission has been clear and that is to strengthen mental wellness in our community. Greater Giving works with partners like Love for St. Louis, The Crisis Nursery, Youth in Need and Compass Health to name a few.

FasterHouse is Founded

Bryan Schroeder and Jim Stiegemeier started FasterHouse in 2002. Back then it was known as Schroeder, Stiegemeier and Associates (sounds like a law firm!). They both were tired of their day jobs and had a passion for real estate. They met for breakfast at Ginghams in St. Charles and decided to start a home buying company and, luckily for all of us, eventually changed the name to FasterHouse.


FasterHouse Evolves

At the beginning, the company was Bryan, Jim and their two wives, Deb and Claire. Over time the company has moved offices a couple times and grown up to around 15 different team members. In 2012, Jim decided he wanted to pursue other interests and amicably sold his share of the company to Bryan, Jim’s wife Claire still works on the team.2012

FasterHouse Expands Its Leadership Team

Bryan was looking for some young blood to infuse into the organization and decided to partner up with Sam Primm and Lucas Walls. They started their own real estate investment company in 2014 and decided to partner up with Bryan, quit their day jobs, and go in full force.2018

FasterHouse Doubles Down on its Mission to Help the Local Community and Serve Its Real Estate Needs

Lucas now runs the day to day operations and look to improve the company every day. Sam is busy growing his education company FasterFreedom but is close by to advise or support the business. FasterHouse is poised for a great future with its focus on treating people the right way and working to make the community better with every situation.
