It’s a family affair…!! We are Mario & Lorinda Pienaar.
Together with our kids and team, we are passionate about helping people, buying homes, adding value (often with our son’s design input) and living our dream to provide REAL estate SOLUTIONS that impact NJ neighborhoods and Lives, One Home at a Time.
We Buy Houses In New Jersey
We at Ritsel Homes have been in the Real Estate Business for over 16 years. During this time, we realized that no matter the reason for giving up your property, whether it’s planned or just the reality of life, coming up with Real Estate Solutions is always better and easier when we put the U (You) in the heart of it.
For this very reason, we understand above all else, that no one will accept an offer that won’t work for them. That is why we go all out to present our highest possible offer. The way we do this is by doing our due diligence, and by keeping our renovation costs as low as possible.

Having grown up in a rural part of Namibia on the southern tip of Africa, founder and managing member Mario Pienaar qualified as a Chartered Accountant (South Africa) in the early 2000’s while starting and growing various businesses on the sideline. His professional career took him to London in the United Kingdom where he continues to work as finance professional, setting his sights on exploring the world and building wealth through real estate investing.
Having met his wife Lorinda, another South African in the middle of London, Mario & Lorinda started to acquire properties in early 2006. That trend continued since moving to the USA in 2015, but now fully focused on the US market.
The single-family home remains close to heart for both Mario & Lorinda, but they also expanded into the Commercial Real Estate (retail, multi-family, light commercial, etc.) and recently started to incorporate Real Estate Notes into their business.
While operating as an independent business, Mario is part of a national group of investors that buy both single and multifamily homes as long-term investments. He also focusses on residential redevelopment projects, wholesaling and above all; solving challenges rooted in the desire to Improve NJ Neighborhoods and Lives, One Home at a Time!
