About Us
Company Business:   
Action Property Solutions principle business is the purchase of single-family houses in the Birmingham, Alabama area. We are real estate investors. We are not realtors or brokers. We are investors that buy houses. We buy houses to rent out and we buy houses to fix up and sell to home owners. We also occasionally wholesale houses we have purchased to other investors. We like to buy several houses each month if possible.

Company Operation:  
We buy most of our houses with cash. However, we also offer other flexible plans to both buy and sell houses in some cases. Regardless of a sellers reasons for wanting or needing to sell, we can usually offer a solution. We mostly use our own money from operating funds, but we sometimes use private lender money for purchases. We very rarely deal with banks because they just take too long to approve loans and sellers usually want to close quickly and get their money from the sale of their house.

Property Types We Deal With:  
We buy distressed properties as well as properties in move in condition. We buy small houses in lesser areas and we buy large very expensive houses in very nice neighborhoods. We buy houses best suited for renting in rental areas and we buy houses in neighborhoods where there are mostly home owners. We work in all price ranges.
Areas We Buy Houses In:  
We buy houses all over and around the Birmingham, Alabama area. For a list of all the areas and zip codes we work in, go to the "Sell Your House" page and take a look on the right side of the page under the title "Areas We Serve". 

Protection and Contracts:  
We handle all of the necessary paper work required to do legal real estate transactions. All closings are done with a closing attorney. All title work is done with major title companies with large well know underwriters for everyones protection. Great care is taken to assure that all documents adhere to all state and local guidelines.

Miscellaneous :  
We are a family owned business and have been purchasing real estate since 1984.

Sorry for the delay in getting this to you. Our daughter was born and I have been runnning behind on everything since then.
My wife and I were in a situation where we needed to relocate from Birmingham. However, our house was in need of some repair. We had talked with realtors about the idea of selling the house in the state of needed repair. However, the realtors were not interested in selling the house. In addition, we world have lost money on the house through listing it with a realtor. We checked with several companies that would purchase homes in need of repair.
Walter and Action Group impressed us. He knew what needed to be done to repair the house and he was not intimidated with what needed to be done. When other companies were not sure how to proceed with our house, Walter had a plan of action. We were able to get out of our house with a time frame that was convenient for us. Action Group did exactly everything that they said thay were going to do. They sold our hosue in a matter of two months!! Action Group allowed us to move on with our needed move while not being strapped by our house in Birmingham, I highly recommend them to anyone.
Thanks for all of your help. It is great to be out of the house and not having to worry about it anymore.

Thanks again,

Walter and Peggy,
I just wanted to say thanks for buying my house.
After renting the house out it was in such terrible shape and my loan was worth more than I could sell the house for. I'm not sure how you worked it out with my lender but I'm thankful you came along so that I can put this all behind me.
I would not hesitate to recommend you to others that have found themselves in my situation.
Thanks again,
Phyllis Whisenant
Walter and Peggy,
I wanted to send you a note thanking you for all of your help with our house. We were truly up against the wall, but you guys gave us a chance for a new start. We really appreciate everything and thank you for the quick honest service. You did everything you promised us you would do. It is upsetting to think of having to sell our house but one can't always foresee the circumstances life will throw at you. You made it a lot less painful and gave us the opportunity for a new start and we are very thankful for your help. If there is anyone who has any questions about any part of the process of doing business with your company please feel free to pass on my phone number and have them call, I would be  happy to share our experience with them.
Thanks again
Walter and Linda Duhon
Walter & Peggy,
I want to say thank you so much for all the hard work you have done for my husband and I. You made everything seem so easy when I though we had hit a dead end. If it had not been for you I'm not sure what we would have done! We will never forget what you have done for us! 
Thank you!

Dear Walter,
I am writing this letter in thanks for all your help with buying my house in Homewood. I was concerned at first because I had never purchsased a house without the help of a Real Estate Agent and was not sure I would feel confident enough to buy without one. You not only helped me feel more confident, but went that "extra mile" being sure I had all I need for the purchase, then your offer to call you when or if I had any questions about the house(and took you up on it) you were so kind and helpful in every way.
Again, I thank you Walter for all you have done for me and for making purchasing amy home a very good experience.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity that other lenders would not afford.  I am glad that your company didn't just look at us as a credit score, but is more concerned about giving people a second chance.  All we needed was the opportunity to get back on our feet, and for someone to believe in us.  My family and I would truly like to thank you and your company for being a blessing to us, and making our dreams come true!!!
Have a Merry Christmas!!!!

Dear Mr. Baker,
I would like to take a few minutes to express to you my appreciation for your service.  When I first contacted you, I was at a loss of what to do about my house situation.  You and your wife, Peggy seemed genuinely concerned about my situation and finding the best possible solution to save my credit and any prior investments I had made.
I appreciate the prompt responses and the willingness to take on the role as trustee with the mortgage company.  That way, I could concentrate on moving forward.
Many people should know about your business and services.  I think it is an alternative way to the real estate business that moves a little faster than the conventional way and suits the needs of all parties involved.
Thanks again,
Paulette Ulgen
Walter, Peggy, and Tommy,
Thank you so much for taking our situation and making it a positive outcome.  You worked diligently in every aspect of the take over and sell of this home.  You took a nearly impossible situation and made it happen.  You don't know how much we appreciate all of your hard work.  Out of all the calls we made to you, you never made us feel like we were a bother.  You are miracle workers and we feel blessed that we found your phone number and made the initial call.
We wish you all the success you so truly deserve and may all your future adventures be smooth and prosperous.
Again, thank you for everything.

To whom it may concern,
I, Robbie Hall, found myself (single parent) in a financial bind as far as making a mortgage and keeping up my home.  I was employed with a company that closed the doors.  I found myself working part time for quite a few months before going full-time.  I wasn't sure about what to do.  I could no longer afford the up-keep of my home and other things.  I didn't want to cause foreclosure.  One day on my way home from work, I noticed several signs stating "Avoid foreclosure, we will buy your house", etc.  The next day I wrote several numbers down and called a few.  One man wanted me out in a couple of weeks, not giving me any time or much info on how his program works. At this time I became very dicouraged.  I then prayed about it.  About a week later I called Mr. Baker.  He was very pleasant, understanding, and he never pressured me.  He came out and viewed the property and then contacted me to let me know he was interested.  We set up an appointment at my convenience.  He throughly explained his program and even paid me for my time. He sold and closed on what was my property.

To whom it may concern,
I am very happy with the quality of service that I recieved. Walter Baker and Tommy fish are very honest and do exactly what they say they will do.  They called when they said they would and always returned my calls.
I tried for over a year to sell my home using so called "Real Estate Agents."  Walter and Tommy sold my home within a month.  I recommend them very highly.

To whom it may Concern,
You probably get letters of praise and recommendation for Walter and Peggy Baker.  This letter is to do just that.  As you read you will see that our situation was probably very different than most.
Back in December 15, 2002 our son Joey had a light stroke.  At the time I was separated from my wife and we lived in different living situations, with me living one place and my wife and son living elsewhere.  My wife and I decided to reconcile our difference not only for us, but also for our son who is getting better and better day-by-day.  He still has his share of bad days, but things could be worse.  God is allowing our son to be here with us and we don't take that lightly.  Without our son being unable to drive or work, we had to take on his portion of insuance and medication which without his insurance, some of his medication would cost hundreds of dollars.  Believe me, we are not made out of money and I don't know too many people that are.
Things got tight and we had to declare chapter 7 bankruptcy.  The house was going into foreclosure and was going to be sold at the courhouse steps.  Then here comes what we like to call our light at the end of the tunnel.  God must have known at that time what we needed was the special angels that he put in our lives, and they are Walter and Peggy Baker.  From the first moment we met them they had feelings for us and understood our situation in regards to our son.  They came along and took a load that was on all of us off, and they did it with professionalism and courtesy.  If God hadn't sent them when he did we would have lost everything.  That's what we all have to understand is that God knows exactly what time we need things because he works on his time and not ours.  The question is would we recommend Walter and Peggy Baker to any one?  The answer to that would be yes.  Walter and Peggy are both understanding and caring.  Thank you both for everything.
Thank you,

Dear Peggy Baker,
We want to express our appreciation for your prompt response in selling our house.  We had a realtor and attorney working on the sale, but they did not know how to take care of a foreclosure.  We are very grateful for our realtor suggesting that we call you.  Your knowledge as to prevent foreclosure and working with the mortgage company was crutial in taking care of this.  You knew the right procedures and how to handle difficult people, including me.  Your services are not as well known as they should be. 
Thank you again for handling a difficult situation when we were not able to ourselves.  Your expertise was invaluable to us.

Dear Mr. Baker,
I want to thank you for the purchase that you made of my mom's house.
I recieved your phone number off of a sign on the side of the road.  Not knowing andthing about you or your company, I decided to call you about buying my moms house.  You met me the next day.  Knowing that the house was half finished, you provided me with a quote for the house within two days.  You made the extra effort of coming to me to sign the contract and within thirty days, the house was closed on.
You did everything that you said you would do and for that I recommend you to anyone who is selling a house.  If I should ever have any need to sell another house then you can count on me calling you.
Thank you again,
Joann Barnes
Walter Baker and Tommy Fish,
I just want to say thanks for all your hard work in making the deal happen for my new house.  Your team is great.  Thanks for sticking with me and making things happen.  You guys are true professionals.
