Our Story

Paul Thompson met Cole and Rachel Acklin at a meeting for the Central Arkansas Real Estate Investors. They all shared the same goal of learning as much as they could about real estate and putting their knowledge into action. They traded books, attended learning seminars, and bought and sold houses. After about a year, Paul’s wife Lucy started getting involved as well. Together Cole, Rachel, Paul and Lucy launched WinCore Homes, a team focused on understanding people’s needs and finding the solution that works for them.

We named our business WinCore Homes because our our core value is that each deal has to be a win:win for everyone involved. We want our clients to walk away from the transaction feeling empowered and excited to move forward with their lives.

We chose real estate and single family houses because everyone needs a place to live. For most people buying or selling a house is the biggest transaction in their life…and we understand that. We’ve made it our mission to know everything possible about real estate. We continually strive to forever invest in our greatest asset, which is our knowledge of the industry.

We serve Little Rock, North Little Rock, Benton, Bryant, Cabot, Jacksonville, Maumelle, and Sherwood.

Our Vision

Our vision is to enable others to realize their freedom and a slice of the American dream. You can still raise your family in a clean, affordable, and safe home.

If you are crushed under debt, panicked and scared, we have the knowledge that can break you free. Sometimes bad things happen to good people, and we can help relieve that stress with a quick-easy-fair answer. We know how to structure the paperwork so you are protected. And we can do the repairs on the house so you can move on with life.

We know what it’s like. In Paul’s early twenties his grandmother passed away and her house ended up going back to the bank because the family didn’t know what to do. At the time, Paul didn’t know the strategies that can preserve people’s equity. Had he known then all that he has learned since, the family could have sold the house and enjoyed some of the benefits of it instead of losing it to the bank.

Not every problem is the same and not every problem has the same answer. Sometimes it takes a 3rd party to come in and create a mutually beneficial solution so that everyone wins. Even the banks. They don’t want foreclosures on their books or beat-up vacant houses to repair.

Let us put our knowledge to work for you.
