About Us

Firefighter Homebuyers was founded in 2021 by Jason Focht and Thomas Boettner, professional firefighters with a mutual interest in real estate and the desire to help homeowners who are burdened with properties they need to sell.

Jason is a native of Fluvanna County, Virginia, and a 2011 graduate of Virginia Tech. After graduation, he moved to Botetourt County, where he still lives with his wife and two daughters. Jason has had a passion for helping others throughout his life. He began his career as a professional firefighter in 2012.

A Roanoke native, Thomas graduated from Hidden Valley High School in 2009 and Jefferson College of Health Sciences in 2014. As a lifelong resident of Roanoke County, he has extensive knowledge of the Roanoke Valley. Thomas became a volunteer EMT in high school and began his professional fire department career in 2015. His trustworthy, professional persona serves him well in public safety as well as real estate.

In 2015, Thomas and Jason were assigned to the same fire company as professional firefighters. They quickly became friends and learned that, on top of a shared interest in construction and real estate and a good understanding of the market, they both had the desire to help others.

Thomas and Jason founded Firefighter Homebuyers to build on those interests and to help clients sell properties quickly and without hassle. The company specializes in assisting property owners who need to solve real estate problems and be free of properties that pose a financial burden. No matter what real estate situation you face, you can count on a professional attitude and a straightforward process.
