About Ohio Cash Buyers
We buy houses. Wait, let us back up a minute. We buy houses to provide win-win solutions to help homeowners get out of all kinds of sticky situations… like Foreclosure, Divorce, Inherited properties, Estate, Rentals that have turned into a problem to maintain, Probate, outdated properties, military members getting transferred, and much more! Now for the boring part.
Ohio Cash Buyers is a real estate company & professional homebuyer based out of Springboro, Ohio. We’re a family owned business, and we’ve been here for over 16 years. We make it our mission to help homeowners like you find real solutions to your house problems, whatever they may be. Our knowledge and experience allow us to create Real-Life Solutions to Real-Life Problems when other’s simply can’t. Any condition, any situation. Do you want to sell your house fast because you’re going through a foreclosure? Maybe your house needs some updates. Perhaps you’ve already tried listing it with a Realtor and that didn’t pan out.
Anyway, you can read more about all of those things on our FAQ page. Back to who we are since that’s why you’re on this page:
Meet the Ohio Cash Buyers Team!
Every step in our process was carefully designed by our company leaders. The Ohio Cash Buyers business model and value system has made us the #1 Home Buying Company across Ohio. Allow us to introduce you to the people who make it easy for homeowners to sell their Ohio home FAST no matter the condition or the situation!
Bryan Blankenship, President/CEO
Bryan is Ohio born and raised – he grew up in Germantown and Middletown. He has been a Licensed Ohio (and Kentucky) General Contractor, REO pro and pro flipper for over a decade. During this span of time he has established relationships in the industry that allow us to craft offers that others can’t match, which is the driving force behind the company’s success. It’s not all about the fair cash offer, though. What REALLY makes him stand apart is his ability to provide help and value in a wide variety of ways – it all boils down to how can he really help his neighbor!
He has been featured in magazines and podcasts, though he prefers to be behind the scenes, making sure things get done the way they should be. It’s not uncommon to find him with his nose in a book, as he has a great love for learning and constant self-improvement. Bryan is usually the first one to know about new construction products and technologies!
When he’s not working (which is quite rare!), you can find Bryan enjoying nature, traveling, racing anything with an engine, or spending quality time with loved ones. He and his wife reside in Lebanon, Ohio, and are both animal lovers with 3 rescued cats at home (and an occasional rescued Raptor that they foster).
Tony has lived in Ohio his entire life. As a former programming engineer in the tool and die industry, Tony was rehabbing properties in his spare time until he decided to make a full time move into the real estate industry and join our team. Tony has a long history of being able to build, fix, or make anything needed to complete a project and his true passion comes from seeing the property transformation take place (sometimes we even call him the “House Whisperer” due to his uncanny ability to assess a house so quickly).
During free time he enjoys being outside, working on a project, or relaxing in front of a fire. He enjoys spending free time with his family. One of his favorite past times is working or riding on something with an engine, either dirt bikes, buggies, or fast cars.
Christina Dreve, Acquisitions
Christina comes to the team after being a mortgage loan officer in Cincinnati. As a hobby, she also coached aspiring authors to write their books and has written several books herself. She has heard a lot of great stories!
Christina loves hiking and kayaking, and has even climbed forty feet high into a redwood tree in California (with a harness and rope!) Her latest home project is fixing up her backyard and figuring out what color to paint her front door next spring. On the weekends you might also find her searching for mid-century modern end tables at resale stores.
She loves all things real estate and has an amazing ability to figure out best options and think of creative ways to work around things that seem impossible to fix!
Morgan Felger, Transaction Coordinator & Marketing
Morgan has a ton of previous experience in sales and marketing! She has been in the real estate industry for several years now, and has a real passion for people. She is an amazing asset to our team and LOVES being able to get a bird’s eye view of everything – from there, she can make sure everything is working and flowing as it should.
Morgan can’t live without her notes, which she color codes with different highlighters (she always keeps some on hand and at the ready!) and is highly-organized.
She enjoys playing softball, and she is an avid bowwoman. Morgan spends most of her free time with friends & family. She is driven by results and the support of her team, and we are excited to have her onboard!
Troy Dessauer, COO
Troy is Cincinnati-born and raised. He has an extensive history of experience across a spectrum of sales and customer service. Troy is the type of person who absolutely cannot rest on his laurels for more than ten seconds. He owns a successful retail business that he has built up to the point of self-sufficiency, which has opened him up and allowed him to now come on board with the OCB Family to share his expertise in business operations, sales support, and customer service.
When he’s not at the office, you can probably find him on a hiking trail or a beach with his family and four dogs (all beagle mixes). His mother and sister run the front desk of his store, so we think it’s safe to say that Troy is a strong believer in family-operated small businesses, and we’re very glad he’s joined ours, too!
Troy Quote: “With this team, and Bryan’s vision and know-how, our only obstacles are the ones we create. So, we identify and eliminate these obstacles and the sky is the limit.”
Heather Carroll, AP/AR
Heather originally hails from West Virginia, but now that she’s crossed state lines and been in Ohio for a while, she’s fallen in love with our little piece of the Midwest! She is another vital part of the team who works as one of our administrators wearing many hats within the office. She is experienced in a variety of things, and is integral to our AP/AR, as well as keeping the rest of us on track.
Her bright smile and positive attitude keeps everyone in good spirits, and she always remembers everyone’s birthday, anniversary, and favorite place to eat! She has even been known to bring special treats to our crews now and then.
Nichell Williams, Property Management
Nichell grew up in Illinois (not Chicago, way far south of there, think cornfields and cows!). She is our superstar Property Manager, though that title really doesn’t do her, and all that she does, justice (chances are that if you need anything, contacting her might be a good place to start). She’s also Mandi’s sister, but we don’t hold that against her! She’s been involved in Ohio Real Estate investing and Rental Property Management since 2008. She worked in the Medical Radiography field before deciding that Real Estate was the way to go for her.
Nichell joined our team in 2009 and has been a hugely integral part of our continued growth and evolution. On top of her career with us, her little ones (Leif age 5 and Holly age 8) keep her very busy! She works from home most days to take care of her family. When she does get some free time, she loves outdoor activities of every kind. Hiking, biking, jogging, camping….anything involving nature – you’ll find her there! We are all super thankful to have her as part of our team and she’s thankful for a company that allows her the flexibility to work from home when needed!
Dan Blankenship, Acquisitions
Dan is another homegrown Germantown/Middletown native. He joins us from a background of sales and customer service as a former small business owner. He served in the US Army for five years in the late 80s. After coming back home, he joined AK Steel in Middletown in 1990. In 2006, he left that position to form his own small business, which he ran and operated until 2018. He really enjoys getting to know people and figuring out real solutions to their problems.
One of Dan’s greatest joys is being a doting grandfather to his 7 grandchildren (the youngest is 2 weeks old, and the eldest is 11 years old). He is ready and available to help out at any time, and he loves to talk! It’s not likely you’ll find a more down-to-earth, neighborly guy to sell your house fast (or not so fast) to.
Aaron Kirk, Rehab & Maintenance
Aaron grew up in Troy, and he’s what you might call a “big teddy bear.” After pursuing a secondary education and obtaining his degree, he started learning the ins and outs of home renovations.
He is often out in the field checking in on our ongoing projects or doing whatever it is that needs done! Aaron loves the outdoors with a passion, and enjoys spending time out in the sun, rain, or snow with his family and two dogs. He’s a jack of all trades, and a valuable addition to the OCB family!
Michael Murray, Acquisitions
Michael has been involved in Real Estate since 2013. He has an intense passion for building relationships with individuals who are looking to buy OR sell their home.
He is the proud father of five children who are all very active in sports (including him!). In his free time…well, this is what he said about that, ” *chuckle* get real, there is no down time!” – he is either at a property or a sporting event, and maybe even on the phone at the same time.
Roman Suarez, Acquisitions CSR
Roman’s friends call him “Man”. He’s got two children and a wonderful wife, and he recently held a formal wedding ceremony in October after 7 years of being married! He was a choir master in his church, so singing is his forte. Roman also loves to read, and has even written some ebooks that are live for sale on Amazon!
He studied Architecture in college, but ultimately decided to pursue a career in customer service instead. Roman is a master at his craft, and he can answer any questions you might have for us while putting you at ease. Maybe you can even get him to sing for you over the phone sometime!
Vlad Legaspi, Acquisitions CSR
Vlad has been involved in customer service for over 12 years. He honed his skills over time before shifting over into quality assurance and sales for the last few years. He joined our team because he loves combining his prior experience and knowledge from the lending industry with his passion for talking to (and helping) people!
He spends most of his free time on the weekends playing video games as he’s discovered they’re a great way for him to relax and unwind, and to connect with a large network of friends from all over. Vlad sounds young on the phone, but don’t let that fool you! He’s very knowledgeable and a pleasure to chat with.
Janice Ramos, Acquisitions/CSR
Janice has been involved in real estate and property management for several years. She was even an escalation specialist before coming to work with us – not an easy job! Her friends and family call her “Jan.” She also has experience in team management and analytics, so she keeps us on our toes in the office!
Janice really enjoys spending time with her family and baking for them. She says that seeing them enjoying the pastries she makes brings her true joy. Yes, she’s just as sweet and wholesome as she sounds on the phone, too!
