Who we are

Synergy Homes of Southern California is an Orange County based company that purchases distressed homes in fine neighborhoods. Our goal is simple: Restore and update these homes to current safety codes while protecting the home values of surrounding homes.

Our approach is unique. We are not a large investment firm. We look at our purchases on a case by case basis. Most of our purchases help families out of difficult situations…and into their next step.
