When it comes to buying and selling homes, husband and wife team Jon and Stacy Bichelmeyer of Archway Homes have a very long and successful track record throughout the metro area.
“We have roots in the Kansas City community for over 40 years, and I’ve been buying and selling homes for close to 20 years, long before HGTV inspired the new investors in town,” said Jon, a third-generation real estate investor.
Archway Homes buys homes “As Is” in any condition: pretty houses needing little to no repair, ugly houses needing everything repaired from leaking roofs to bad foundations, cluttered houses, or houses in need of cosmetic updating. They do so by providing a no-obligation offer within 24 hours, can pay cash and close within three days or on a future date of the seller’s choice, and there are no fees or commissions to pay .
Homeowners who work with Archway Homes include everyone from those moving due to illness, facing foreclosure, a job transfer, they have a difficult home to sell, or some other reason why they can’t, or don’t want to go through a traditional selling process.

When taking care of her 1940s home became too much of a financial strain, Yvette B. decided it was time to sell. “Although I had performed the usual routine maintenance and spent a great deal of money upgrading things like the old water pipes, gutters, and doors and windows, it still needed quite a few things,” she said.
While researching several companies that buy homes for cash, she encountered nothing but wonderful accolades about Archway Homes.
“When Jon came out, the first thing he did was listen to what renovations I had already done to the house, and to some of my dreams and plans which, unfortunately, never came to fruition for me financially,” said Yvette. “After he finished his walk-through, he said that it was a great house, and was very gentle and kind about the fact that, in his words, ‘it needed a little lovin’.” I knew then that he didn’t just care about making a good business decision for him, but also about restoring the home with love.”
Lynda Thornbury’s desire to sell was due to a personal loss.
“My father had built the house and it had been my childhood home,” Thornbury shared. “After both of my parents were gone, my brother took it over and lived in it until he passed away. And since I have no other siblings, and my husband and I have our own house, I had no need for it anymore.”
When a relative showed Thornbury an article about Archway Homes in the newspaper, she decided to give them a call.
“My husband and I had tossed around the idea of rehabbing it ourselves, and know we could have made more money on it. But I liked the idea that Archway Homes was [owned by] a local couple, and that they would buy at a fair and reasonable price, and with a quick closing.”
When all was said and done, Thornbury was happy that everything flowed so smoothly.
“Jon is very nice and it pleased me how punctual he was in showing up right on time,” she said. “We closed on the day he said we would, and the money was wired to my bank the next day. I was just very pleased.”
Yvette echoed those sentiments.
“I am very happy to have sold my home to Archway Homes,” she said. “They are very well-known and respected in the area, and lovingly restore the homes they buy and resell. I know that what they will do will bless the next owner and the neighborhood.”
“Selling a property can be a stressful process, regardless of why,” Stacy said. “Our experience has given us the ability to remove the hassles for the seller by doing all the work ourselves after the contract is signed. With us, selling your house as-is never felt this good!”
