We Are Local Home Buyers in Maryland

We value fun, family, integrity, and compassion!

Hello! We’re Ian and Melanie! Real People Just Like You!

Our Maryland house buying company was started with a goal to grow our business into one that is profitable. However, we chose to buy houses in Maryland because it provides us with the best opportunity to have a positive impact on the greatest number of lives in the shortest amount of time.

Ian and I are passionate about a few things: our family, having fun, and helping others! And we’ve got two kiddos who love to goof around just as much as we do (see below)!

Our House Buying Team

Melanie Hartmann

Founder and CEO

Melanie Hartmann, the founder and CEO of Creo Home Buyers and began pursuing purchasing real estate in 2016. She does a little bit of everything from managing the website, to making cash offers, to managing operations. Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, she is most interested in bringing value back to local neighborhoods by renovating vacant houses in Baltimore.

By investing in real estate, Melanie plans to use the time and resources it provides to put efforts back into Our Mission: serving students and funding programs to help young adults obtain gainful employment and have successful school careers.

Ian Armitage,


Ian Armitage, the co-founder of Creo Home Buyers, was born and raised in Baltimore, MD. With an educational background in mathematics and mathematics education Ian is passionate about helping young people. While in college, Ian tutored Baltimore City school students through the reading intervention program Reading Partners.

After college, Ian spent a year working at a sales and marketing firm. He found the best piece of advice he received during that year was that being a good listener is a lot more important than being a good talker. Ian got into real estate because he felt that was where he could do his best listening, have the biggest impact, while still having dinner with his wife and children.

Ian prides himself on his honesty and integrity. Very few things in this world can be done without trust and trust is the focus of Ian’s approach to real estate. Helping out those who may have had a bad experience trying to sell their home in the past, either by themselves or with an agent. It was also impossible for Ian to pass up the opportunity to work with his wife everyday, growing as a family, as partners, and as professional home buyers.
