In 2007, I'm looking forward to spending most of my time with my best clients.
I'm not normally a crusader, but I'm ready to pick up a pitchfork and march to Washington.   Short sale after short sale is being hyjacked by the underhanded tactics of the junior lien holder.   It works like this:   Mr. and Mrs. Homeowner are in trouble and need to sell their home before it gets...
