About Grandview Homes

Providing emotional and financial relief to home sellers in the Chicagoland area since 2009.


Grandview Homes was founded in 2009 by Tom Detelich, a 30-year veteran of the banking industry, and Ken Bernhard, a lifetime entrepreneur, after recognizing the challenges that many home sellers face when selling a less than perfect home in less than perfect circumstances.

1000’s of Homes in 100+ Communities

With their combined 50 years of expertise in finance and real estate, the entrepreneurs have purchased more than a 1,000 homes in over 100 communities throughout the Chicagoland area.

We have been an A+ designated member of the Better Business Bureau since 2009.

The Largest Independent Real Estate Buyer in Chicagoland

As the largest independent real estate buyer in Chicagoland, we understand the challenges and circumstances faced by sellers who have a less than perfect home to sell.

We have purchased the following “less-than-perfect” homes:

  • Interiors dating back to the 1970’s and earlier
  • Mold infestation
  • Foundation problems
  • Asbestos issues
  • Water damage
  • Hoarder-type
  • Fire-damaged
  • Vacant
  • And other unique situations

We Understand Your Unique Situation

There isn’t a circumstance that we haven’t faced, so you’ll have the confidence of dealing with an organization that truly understands your unique situation.

We also have a special understanding of the unique circumstances faced by Seniors and their family members dealing with situations such as:

  • Entering into a Senior Living Facility
  • Passing of a family member
  • Probate or disposal of the family home

We have Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES), designated brokers on staff who understand these special circumstances and are prepared to offer solutions that go beyond simply buying a home.
