We are not only real estate investors who give fair offer for your property, buy it “as-is”, pay cash, close quickly without any agent fees and extra costs. We are first of all open, honest and supportive human beings. We have had lots of ups and downs ourselves. We know there is ALWAYS a solution and often that solution comes with someone’s support!
We do not only buy houses…. We do not only structure various real estate deals…
We also and MOSTLY support and connect people:
- who own a property that seems to have become a burden,
- who have liquid resources to invest in such properties and by doing so – give timely support to others, as well as develop their business,
- who are looking forward to moving to another page or chapter in their lives quickly and confidently,
- who are in need of a partner that doesn’t take advantage of them, shows available solutions and helps to implement those.
Rectrices are the steering feathers of birds, that help them set the direction of their flight. We chose this name for our initiative as we believe in the power of bird-eye view – the power of seeing all possible directions from above and setting up for our next trip with confidence and purpose and will to win.

Rectrix Investments is a family business founded by Rebecca Hakobyan and Amit Gupta. We are based in DMV area, but we also have partners in other states, such as NV, CA, and TX. We have 15+ years of extensive experience working in fast-paced corporate companies. We have held managerial positions leading different teams, medium- and large-scale projects with the involvement cross-functional teams and multiple 3-rd party vendors all over the world.
In 2019 when we decided to change the course of our lives and to focus on our own business initiatives, we knew that we have to find a business where one of the focal points of our system would be supporting people, giving them another chance to move forward with confidence, building long-lasting relations and partnerships based on high level of integrity. And that is exactly the reason why we considered dedicating our time to real estate investments.
Real estate is a serious matter with serious capital investments and emotional attachments. No matter who we deal with – a homeowner who has appeared in a difficult situation, an investor who wants to build a business, a lender who is ready to finance interesting real estate deals, an agent who needs to find new prospects – all of these people need support and advice, transparency and analysis to be able to make decision confidently and to execute them intelligently.
WHY US? WHAT TO EXPECT AND GAIN FROM OUR PARTNERSHIP?
Courage to look into anyone’s eyes with pride and confidence
Our values are the core of our business and the axis of justified existence as human beings. We DO NOT compromise on our values and that is why we are able to face any situation, to talk to anyone without pride and confidence.
From the very beginning of our communication with the local players in real estate investments niche, we found out that not everyone wants to be honest, open and is willing to share information that would help one make well-analyzed and calculated decisions. We found out that people create artificial sense of urgency for you to make quick, unaware and purely emotional decisions. That’s when we understood that our commitment to open, equal opportunity and accountable working ethics could be exactly what many sellers and investors are looking for.
Planning and analysis leading to educated decisions, experience leading to their timely execution
With 30+ years of collective corporate experience in highly dynamic and competitive industries, out of which 15+ years in senior management roles in construction, marketing and other cross-functional areas, we are confident to deliver the quality of well-analyzed and planned and timely executed projects.
With the complexity of the issues we faced at senior management roles, we have the gained the flexibility and agility to be able to structure deals that would benefit all players in any real-estate related situation.
Ability to connect, motivate and unite people for a better cause
We know how to connect people who think differently, talk different languages, and often have conflicting interests. We enjoy bringing them all to the same ground, uniting them through common goals and creating win-win environment…
We don’t hide, we don’t exaggerate, we don’t make things to seem artificially complex. We build trust and partnership through integrity, transparency and accountability.

Our Values and Principles
Myths and Truths About Us – Real Estate Investors (REI)
Many, especially real estate agents and some property sellers, believe that real estate investors are highly not reliable as they look for easy money and they don’t take this seriously and responsibly enough. They might fail finding funds, they might just aim to act as an intermediary hoping to sell the property other investors (and get out if they don’t find any finances). Lender also beware of REI, as situations when REI run out of funds to finish their rehab projects, are not rare either.
MYTHS: As in every business there are only few who truly succeed, a few that do well (but could do even better) and many that fail. So one should have a certain criteria when dealing choosing Real Estate Investor partners. If you choose the ones that have a great potential to become a good investor or have already had a proven track record, you will do a good business too.
TRUTHS: There is a great plethora of “REI recruitment initiatives” by already established investors – another business by itself, as there are fees for those courses/initiatives/recruiters. As many of those initiatives preach that doing real estate investments is easy, that you don’t need any education to do this, that you’d become well off just by doing this, they are able to recruit many “want-to-be” investors. This is a business with a low-entry barrier but with a high turnover rate, because this business does like calculations, it does like people management and relationship management, it does like project management skills. It’s true that one wouldn’t need a formal education if one had all these abilities innate. However, let’s agree, that these are rather skills that one often acquires at schools or work. Again, choose your REI partners carefully, apply selection criteria.
MYTHS: Not really… There are factors that make real estate investments business much more humane and lovable than it might seem at the first sight. The entire ideology behind REI is creating win-to-win situation, value-added for every single participant in the supply chain of this business – sellers, lenders, brokers, agents, appraisers, contractors, investors themselves, buyers, communities.
Because of its low entry barrier, this business is open to all, it gives hope for a new opportunity! …. an opportunity to any ordinary citizen who is ready to work hard and consistently, to earn well and build family wealth. Investors change communities to better! Many former high-crime communities have become nicer and have been able to attract newer generation of residents because of REIs multiple individual investments and rehabs.
The ecosystem for small and medium scale RE Investments is for people by people – literally. You will very few institutional giants, all players are individual or small group of individual aiming to find their role in the supply chain and making money by helping others make money.
TRUTHS: It’s business at the end of the day. So yes, if needed, we need to make tough decisions and exits.
Many of “REI recruitment initiatives” preach that you can do business in minutes, just by using some softs to find properties and making phone calls, just by sending out postcards or doing other traditional marketing tricks.
MYTHS: Things seem nice and easy only when you are not part of the successful business. Once you are responsible for it, then only you get to face the challenges and see the real life behind the scenes. No software will help you do business, if you are not ready to work consistently. To create a team and/or a system that would actually work for you is the most important part of this business and guess what – it DOES TAKE TIME and HARD WORK. Depending on your goals in terms of profit, you should define for yourself how many hours per day or week you want to invest in the business. Whatever you choose it has to be consistent – business doesn’t like sporadic approaches.
TRUTHS: Once you have your system and team in place (people who partner with you in different stages of your business or even people working for your full-time), then it will take you less time to do more deals. However, remember, it’s all about people and project management and things happen when managing situations and people. So be ready to hop in any time and be top of your investment projects.
