Our Founders

Hi, My name is James. It’s always been my passion to help people. After graduating high school, I was at a crossroads. Do I go to college? Do I start work and go to college later? Well, I went into the Military. To serve my country was one of the most challenging and fulfilling times of my life. After 4 years I decided I was ready for different challenge, so after completing my service with an Honorable Discharge I left my post that had become home and came back to Bakersfield CA, where I was born and raised.

I then began a career in the hospitality business. That’s a professional way of saying restaurant, bar and nightclub business. Here I spend the next 20 years. I excelled in the

business because of my attention to detail. Most people think the restaurant business is about food and drink… nope, it’s about small details, understanding profit and loss and being able to train your staff to be better then the staff in the restaurant across the street. I’m going to go ahead and pat myself of the back for a second, and say I was the best! I could see my patron. I knew what the expectation was, and I met it daily. In my little city of 450,000 people and 380 competing restaurants, per square footage my place was by far the busiest and highly successful. After 2 decades I decided I wanted a new challenge.

Starting in 2015, after careful consideration I decided to become a real estate investor. Learning to be a real estate investor was challenging, exciting, fun, and a lot of hard work! 6 months from day 1, I was in my first deal. There’s been more than I can count since, but I will always, vividly remember my first. It changed my life. There’s a number i’ll never forget… $24,821.00, It’s the amount of money that wired to my account the day I closed my first deal. Until that day I had never been able to look at my bank account and see that much money. I’ll have to say it felt good. Current I am the Vice President for SellCash HomeBuyers, Inc. We’ve done more deals in a month then most Real Estate Investors will do in their life, and that’s not me bragging… Well maybe a little.

Something I want to share with you. There is truly no better feeling than having financial freedom. It allows me to enjoy doing what i want in life and not being forced to be part of the daily grind.

Now a goal in my life is to help folks obtain that ability as well, however my forefront focus is always my beautiful wife and amazing life. Cheers!

Michael Quarles’ entrepreneurial spirit and goal driven mindset have led him to create six businesses. He is a “Massive Investor” and expert specializing in residential real estate. At the age of 18 Michael bought his first piece of real estate and built a duplex on it. He admits that he didn’t know what the heck he was doing, but that has never stopped him. Michael takes action with unwavering confidence in his ability to achieve his goals. Don’t tell Michael that he can’t do something because he will always prove you wrong. As an accomplished real estate broker and contractor, Michael has completed thousands of real estate deals and built over 70 new construction units. He has vast experience with fix and flips,

With “WholeTailing” as the cornerstone, Michael developed a highly systemized business model to buy houses in person or virtually. The system he created placed him at the forefront of buying real estate nationwide. Today, Michael and his team at SellCash HomeBuyers are buying an average of one house per day all across the country.

To help other investors build successful marketing campaigns, Michael created the largest marketing company for real estate investors. Later, Michael would open the Alex & Ryan Call Center to help turn marketing responses into deals. Alex captures the initial call, completes the seller questionnaire and measures seller motivation. If the prospect qualifies, an appointment is set for Ryan to negotiate a contract. The Alex & Ryan Call Center is a virtual acquisitions team and by far the best opportunity to outsource a key part of the house buying process.
