About Reno Area Home Buyers

Reno Area Home Buyers is a local investment firm located in Midtown, Reno, NV. Founded in 2019 and 5-star rated on Google through the purchase and sale of over 100 homes, we buy houses all over the area – south to Gardnerville, north to Cold Springs, east to Fallon, and everywhere in between. Our bread and butter is single family remodels, but we also purchase multi family apartments and do ground-up development too. We buy property directly from the seller, and when we buy a house, it’s our main priority to offer the ‘Easy Button’ through a seamless and transparent sale process. No matter the condition of the home and in any situation, we do everything we can to provide a win-win solution for local property owners here in Northern Nevada.

Meet The TEAM

Alex Ficco- Co Owner

Alex Ficco is the co-founder of Reno Area Home Buyers. He grew up in Gardnerville, NV and has been a Reno resident since 2011. Without a formal real estate background, Alex started out in the industry in 2018, quickly finding his niche in marketing directly to sellers and offering a simple off-market sale process to homeowners. Before real estate, Alex was a valet attendant at Atlantis, so he may have even parked your car at one point! Today, he is the Sales and Marketing Manager at Reno Area Home Buyers and takes pride in continually improving the process for the local homeowners that choose to do business with us. In his spare time, Alex likes to race motocross, and is a “crossfit at 5:30am every day no matter what” type of guy. Alex Ficco is a NV real estate licensee lic. no. S.191469 with eXp Realty.

Wes Pittman- Co Owner

Wes is originally from Incline Village, NV. He and his high school sweetheart, Megan, (from Sparks, NV) got married while Wes was in college at Arizona State University in 2010. Wes worked on Phoenix’s light rail system as a transportation planner with URS Corporation. Though a great experience, Wes realized his interest in planning was largely related to investment and land development. Since moving back from Arizona in 2015 to Reno, NV, Wes has worked primarily in the real estate space and launched Reno Area Home Buyers with Alex in 2019.  Wes has two children, Ella and Mather that were born in 2020 and 2021 respectively. Wes loves business, rock climbing, back packing, back country skiing, making music, meditation, buddhist philosophy, and spending time with his family. But his most important life achievement is winning best costume for the “beer” division of the  2022 Luggi Foeger Uphill Downhill backcountry ski race at Diamond Peak – he looked great as a flamingo. Wesley Pittman is a real estate licensee lic. no. S.0180874 with eXp Realty.
