About Sell 911
We help homeowners get out of their sticky situations… like foreclosure, owning a burdensome property, probate, or anything else.
Sell 911 is a real estate company founded by Chris and Missy Buttrum. We’re a family owned business that focuses on helping homeowners, like you, get out of an unwanted house whether you’re going through a foreclosure, can’t sell your property, or just need to sell their house for all kinds of reasons.
Local and Family Owned
Before Chris and Missy founded Sell 911, our journey started when Chris was a young agent working with banks to assist with foreclosures and short sales. He listed the properties and negotiated directly with the banks on behalf of his clients. It all seemed great at first, until Chris started to see the confusing side of real estate.
Chris saw buyers unsure what the right price for a property was and sellers equally confused with their home’s value. Chris knew there was a better way, and with his wife, Missy, they founded HomeWire Realty and Sell911. We developed Sell911 specifically to create an even playing field for everyone and brought transparency to the real estate transaction.
Sell 911 Offers Alternatives to Our Sellers
We go into every listing appointment with several options for our sellers – whether we buy it cash, list it traditionally or put it on auction. Whether you are a seller, investor or a buyer – Sell911 and HomeWire Realty can help.

Real Estate Expert!
For over 19 years, Chris Buttrum has worked in the real estate and investing world, starting with his first rehab back in 2001. As the co-owner of HomeWire Realty with his wife, they now have over 30 agents working nationwide on their team all committed to the same mission: bringing transparency and honesty to real estate, an industry that far too often is filled with misconceptions and disappointments.
From Tupperware to Real Estate!
Selling real estate is not like selling plastic containers, but Missy started her passion for helping others and sales when she was a Tupperware sales manager and for the last 9 years she has been working in her true calling – real estate. She started working with her husband Chris in 2011 helping with broker price opinions, foreclosures and managing them. Chris and Missy started their own real estate brokerage company and later named it HomeWire Realty.
In 2016, Missy became a real estate broker and took over the managerial operations of their now growing brokerage of almost 30 agents across 4 states. She was also heavily involved with her husband Chris with investing in homes, finding deals for themselves and for buyers they worked with. She witnessed many of her buyers missing out on homes and outbid by others, not knowing what the other bids were, which led to the creation of Sell 911.

She has seen her level of involvement increase to the point that she is now a real estate agent in training to better team up with her husband and provide the best service they can to their customers who need to sell fast for cash.
