My name is Brad Dolan, and I’m the founder of HappyDoor- your  local home buyer in Ottawa.

HappyDoor is a real estate solutions company that was created to help homeowners get out of their sticky house situations.  We specialize in helping sellers who need to sell their house quickly, for any reason, by offering a fair cash price for your home in any condition.

I was born/raised in Ottawa, and live here with my lovely girlfriend, Teri-Leigh, and dog (Norman). My background is in online/e-commerce, founding the first textbook rental company in the country after graduating with a degree in Finance/Marketing from Carleton University.  After the acquisition of my company by a competitor in the US, I began pursuing my interests in real estate, investing in short term rental properties in a number of US markets.

In researching the local real estate landscape, I noticed an opportunity to provide an option for Ottawa home owners in need of a quick sale of their properties.  I’m passionate about solving problems in real estate, and can often identify creative solutions that will help those that need to sell their house.

Our Mission:

We focus on helping homeowners remove the stress of selling their home by providing a solution that meet their specific needs and circumstances.

How We Work With Homeowners:

We understand that every situation is different.  We’ve helped families who were moving suddenly and didn’t think they could sell in time.  We’ve helped families get a cash offer for their house where there was significant maintenance and costly repairs needed. We’ve also helped families who inherited a property they didn’t want or couldn’t afford to keep.  We’ll work with you to identify the best possible offer specific to your situation- we will close fast and on your desired timeline.

Of course, we can’t buy every house when a seller needs to sell, but we can certainly point you in the right direction for other options. If you need to sell your house fast for cash, contact us today for a no risk, no obligation offer on your home.  We promise to make the process as simple as possible.

Does this sound familiar?

  • You need to sell your home fast to pay off your mortgage or other bills.
  • You don’t have the money to make the necessary repairs.
  • You are overwhelmed with a property you have inherited.
  • You have title or legal issues with a property you have inherited.
  • You don’t want to deal with open houses and showings.
  • You don’t want your neighbours to know you are selling.
  • You are ready for a fresh start.

Here’s how we can help…

  • We will make an offer to purchase your property, as is, within 24 hours of viewing your home.
  • No fees or commissions.
  • No obligation or pressure.
  • We only buy if it’s a win-win.
  • We offer all cash closings and no repairs are required.
  • We handle all legal and title issues.
  • We buy homes in any condition.
  • We walk you through the process, step by step.
  • We buy houses fast- within days, not months.
  • Or we can close on the exact date you need (even months away!).

So, what makes us happy?

  • When our clients say “I called around to a few house buying companies, but you gave me the best offer.”
  • When our sellers tell us how simple the process was all the way up until the date of closing.
  • We love when neighbours thank us for rehabbing the roughest house on the street, helping to enhance the neighbourhood.
  • We love the look on the faces of family members who sell us an inherited house and after renovations they tell us that they wish their loved one could see how beautiful their house looks now.
