On every short sale, there is usually some problem that arises that requires a little fixing. This deal had problem after problem after problem. My clients hung in there and didn't give up hope though. Problem #1 - We get a solid full price deal after about 100 days on the market. The lender ( Chase ) does their BPO, and it comes in $55,000 over our sale price. Problem #2 - The furnace malfunctioned and the pipes froze. Problem #3 - Chase secured the property and removed my lockbox despite my sign being in the front yard. Problem #4 - The 2nd mortgage was assigned to Greentree in MERS. Mortgage Electronic registration systems. So there was nothing on the land records showing that Greentree had authority to service the note. The new buyers title company wanted stacks of documentation fr...

Most of my clients come to me as referrals.  I do treat the with the same skills and procedures that I would, as if they came to me on their own.  They are provided a package of forms, marketing samples and banking information.  At my first meeting with them, I explain the relationship that I will be offering them and then ask them if they have any questions.  The questions range from pre-approval's for buyers to staging for sellers.  Questions answered upfront, make it easier to work along side people and know their expectations.  I love when clients ask me questions! Here is my favoirte question.  It is asked by listing clients, though, last year, I started to offer this information to my buyer clients.  What were those sites on the internet that you told us about?  I know that you of...
