About Home Owners Resource Group

Homeowners Resource Group is a highly experienced team of home buying professionals. We are focused on helping homeowners like you to sell your house fast, without any hassle, games, or fees. Our job is to stay committed to delivering this service with transparency and integrity throughout the entire experience.

We buy houses all over the Southern California. We know the area, which means our team of professionals can help you sell your house fast no matter where it is or what condition it’s in (and even if there are tenants).

Again, we’re not agents who are trying to sell your house to others. We are professional home buyers, which means we have our own cash and are ready to buy immediately. We can even make you an offer on the spot. Once we make you an offer you can choose whether or not you want to take that offer (and you can even shop it around if you want, talk it over with others, and think about it before deciding). We have a strict no-pressure policy, and our many previous clients love it and are proof that it works.

We provide win-win solutions to help homeowners get out of their sticky situations… like foreclosure, owning a burdensome property, probate, or anything else. At Homeowners Resource Group, we focus on providing you with a solution to your situation so you can continue to do the things you love.

Homeowners Resource Group is a real estate solutions company based out of Riverside.  We focus on helping homeowners like you find solutions for your problem whether you’re going through a foreclosure, can’t sell your property, or just need to sell their house for all kinds of reasons.

How We Work With Homeowners

If you have any questions about how we work, what the process of selling a house or having us help you avoid foreclosure, or just want to learn more about us… don’t hesitate to contact us anytime!

Who We Are

Charlie Ortiz– Founder & Senior Advocate
There’s nothing more than Charlie loves besides spending time with his family – his wife and two teenage sons and his beloved rescue Macaw, unless it’s helping people with real estate problems that have become burdens to them. At heart, that is his true passion.

Charlie has been a mentor at the Inland Empire Investment Club and has extensive knowledge of homes from working with contractors, builders, and developers. Since 2012, Charlie has been working hard building genuine connections with families and relationships with communities in the Inland Empire area because this is where he lives and he loves his home. In his free time, he loves to read books, go for walks with his wife and their dogs, visit the beach with his sons, and play tennis with his brothers-in-law.


Tommy Smith – Acquisitions / Finance Manager
Tommy Smith is the Acquisition/Finance Manager at Homeowners Resource Group. He previously served in the U.S. Navy. In 2010 he earned a bachelor’s degree in business finance, graduating from San Diego State University Fowler College of Business. His discipline, structure, and enjoyment of calculating formulas is a win-win formula when assisting homeowners to solve complex and difficult issues. He has close to 20 years of experience in project and information systems management.

Tommy has a passion for real estate and constantly challenges himself to learn and improve his real estate acumen to be a tremendous asset to homeowners that need a knowledgeable resource. In his spare time, Tommy enjoys showing and training dogs when he’s not with the fury family members you can catch him on the sidelines cheering on his kids at either a basketball, football, or gymnastic event. He enjoys spending time with his wife of 14 years and kids often enjoy the great outdoors either running, hiking, or exercising.


Nick Castrellon – Marketing Manager
Nick comes from a design and marketing background with over 20 years of experience. He has done graphic design, writing and signage manufacturing for the financial, retail, and restates industries. He’s been a member of the team since 2018 and proudly uses his skillset to spread the word of HRG’s services to the folks that need them.

Nick’s “why” is helping as many people not go through what his family did when they faced foreclosure back in 2012. After seeing the HRG team help others move on from tough situations, he became very passionate about being a resource to those that feel they have nowhere to turn. During Nick’s downtime, he enjoys cooking, crossfit, playing his guitar, and being a dad to his family of dogs and cats.


Drew Nagda – Funding Manager / Builder
Drew is the funding manager / main investor that purchases the distressed properties. He works hand-in-hand with the HRG team, helping solve seller problems, and assisting the team to close out deals. Drew has a construction company, so once a deal is closed he and his team fix up the properties for either rent or to sell.

The relationship he has with HRG is complementary as he fixes up distressed properties and cleans up neighborhoods in our target areas. This helps when speaking with sellers because Drew takes pride in building beautiful houses and sellers/city officials/community members appreciate the craftsmanship and end result. In his spare time he enjoys exercising, spending time with family & dog, and supporting local youth soccer teams.
