Do You Want To Help Us Buy Houses And Get Paid For It?

We buy houses for a living and we could really use your help! We do a lot of marketing for our business in order to keep buying houses but we can't be everywhere.

That's where you come in! There are a lot of ways you can help us market our company to buy more houses. Even better, if we buy a house from someone you sent our way, you will get paid a predetermined marketing fee for your efforts.

This is not a pyramid scheme and you will never be asked to pay for anything. We are an agent-owned, reputable company simply looking for help to get the word out that we buy houses.

These are great opportunities for college students, Uber and Lyft drivers, retail workers, or anyone looking to make some extra cash. You can help us in your spare time or even doing what you normally would in your daily life.

Keep scrolling to see how you can help us buy houses. If you feel we can help each other, fill out our form to let us know if you have any questions or if you are interested in performing one (or all) of the opportunities and just want to get started! If your location is a good match for where we want to buy houses, we will contact you soon!

About Us

Michelle and Andrew

Up and Up Home Solutions is run by Michelle and Andrew Stargardt and is agent owned. That means we must follow strict ethical guidelines when working with anybody, not just our clients and customers. We are a family run, honest real estate investing company.

We buy houses in Illinois as a way of helping people that don't want to sell the conventional way. We believe having the option to sell a home fast allows people to spend their time doing what they want to do. It's all about helping people.

Help Us Distribute Business Cards

Distributing our business cards is a great way for you to help us get our company in front of homeowners with little of your time invested and a lot to potentially gain! Each home we buy from someone referred to us by one of the cards you distribute will earn you a $250 marketing fee!

Here's How It Works

  • We Send You Cards - We will send you a stack of business cards to the address you provided. These cards will have a unique phone number associated with you. Don't worry! You won't have to answer any calls or texts, we'll take care of that part. We use a unique phone number so we can keep track of exactly where homeowners found out about us.
  • You Pass Them Out - Here's where we need your help. Once you receive the business cards we send to you, start getting rid of them! You can hand them out individually, go door to door, or leave stacks of them at the usual local places you visit (with approval of course). You could leave a handful of cards at gas stations and pumps, home improvement stores, bars and restaurants, grocery and retail stores, or anywhere you can think of! The more people that respond to your card, the better for both of us. Be creative!
  • You're Done! - Sit back and wait to hear from us. That's it! If we buy a house from someone that calls your unique phone number, we will pay you a marketing fee of $250!

Drive Around With Our Vehicle Accessories

Applying our company's decal or license plate frame to your vehicle is probably the easiest way you can help us market our property and there is no limit to how much you can earn in marketing fees. Each home we buy from someone referred to us by your vinyl window decal or license plate frame will earn you a $250 marketing fee!

Here's How It Works

  • We Send You A Decal or Frame - We will send you a vinyl window decal or aluminum license plate frame (you pick) to the address you provided. Instructions to put the sticker on a flat surface of your vehicle's window will be provided and it only takes minutes to install. The license plate frame can replace the one you already have and only involves a few screws. The sticker or frame we send to you will have a unique phone number associated only with you. We will handle all of the phone calls and texts to this number and we will know homeowners saw the number from your vehicle.
  • You Drive Around - You can drive around as you normally would and aren't required to drive any specific amount of miles. We will never need to check your odometer or even ask you to take pictures of your vehicle. If you commute to work, drive for Uber or Lyft, or just like to cruise around, this is a great way to make some extra cash!
  • That's It! - When homeowners call the number on your vehicle and we end up purchasing their property, we will pay you a marketing fee of $250! We both win! The more you drive around, the more opportunities you have. However, we understand that there will be times when you can't have a decal or license plate frame on your vehicle. Just remove it and reapply it when you are ready to. If window decals or license plate frames don't work for you, door magnets may be available upon request.

Find Us Fixer-Uppers

Our goal as a house buying company is to buy distressed or abandoned properties so we can fix them up and sell them to a new homeowner. Driving around to find these homes can be fun but we can't be everywhere. If you come across a fixer-upper and let us know about it, we will pay you a marketing fee of $250 if we buy the home!

Here's How It Works

  • Find Us Fixer-Uppers - When you drive around as usual or cruise around local neighborhoods, look for homes that could use some TLC and don't already have a for sale sign in the front yard. Properties with really long grass, boarded up windows, holes in the roof, or other signs of distress are exactly what we are looking for.
  • Give Us The Details - If you've found a property that needs some work, take a few pictures, write down the address, and text or email the information to us for our review.
  • We'll Do The Rest - If the home isn't already on the market, it fits our buying criteria, and you are the first person to send us the property information, we will pay you a marketing fee of $250 if we are able to buy the house. It's that simple!

Install Yard Signs In Your Designated Area

Yard signs are a very effective way to market our company to a sizable group of homeowners looking to sell their house. Yard sign installation requires more work up front than some of our other marketing options but the effort can pay off significantly! Since we buy homes in a large geographic area, we could use your help putting these signs out. The good news for you is that any home we buy from someone referred to us by one of the signs you installed will earn you a marketing fee of $250! Even better, we will also pay you a $50 marketing fee for every 100 signs you have installed!

Here's How It Works

  • We Send You The Signs - Once you and our company have an agreed upon, designated area for you to install our yard signs at predetermined locations, we will send you the signs and wire frames you will need to install them. The signs will have a unique phone number that identifies it to us as one you installed. We'll handle the calls and texts from homeowners but we will know they saw the number from one of your signs.
  • You Install The Signs - Once you receive the signs and frames, you will go out to the locations we have sent to you and begin installation. We require the signs to be placed typically at locations like busy intersections, exits of home improvement and grocery stores, and other high traffic areas. It may be best for you to install the signs when there is less traffic, like nights and weekends.
  • Send Us Pictures - After installing each sign, take a picture of it and upload it to the link we provide you. Make sure to keep GPS location tracking and time-stamping on in your camera settings so we can verify your installations. Once we have verified the pictures' authenticity, we will send you a $50 marketing fee for every 100 signs!
  • We'll Take Care Of The Rest - We will handle any phone calls that go to the unique phone number that identifies you. If we end up buying a house from one of these callers, we will pay you a $250 marketing fee!
