Real Estate Agent - CG Real Estate
Finding themselves severely upside down and crunched for cash, I received an email requesting assistance in short selling this clients home.  We had a little hiccup, but also a positive surprise!   Single lien Indymac short sale, with PMI.  After 90 days we received a low offer and ran with it.  ...
Back in June I took a referral from a " local expert " real estate agent in Torrington, CT  that needed a short sale expert to get the job done for him.  I wish all agents would understand their limits and refer it out instead of trying to stumble through a short sale with their clients financial...
Yet another approved short sale with Wells Fargo Home Equity!  As per the norm, a little twist just before the closing, but nothing we were not able to resolve with a hammer and crowbar!  :-)   So here's the deal.  These clients called me after having their home listed for 3 YEARS!  After chasing...
All in all, this was a fairly smooth transaction, even though it took a little longer than I would have liked. We were able to price the home aggressively and get a contract within the first 2 weeks.

My clients had contacted me back in July about listing their home.  Deep in foreclosure, and going through the State of Connecticut mandatory foreclosure mediation, they had come to the conclusion that the best way forward was to pursue a short sale, and chose me as their Connecticut short sale R...
A pretty strong statement, but BOA has led me to believe this through it's own actions.  Here's why.  Most other lenders begin the foreclosure process like clockwork, right at the 90 or 120 days late mark.  I regularly consult with clients of Bank of America that are 15, 24, 36 months with no pay...

    Bet you didn't know this?  Dumbfounded today, after getting word that the bpo on one of my listings came back 50k over the list price, I decided to do a little research.  I had the feeling that this was the case, but needed to confirm it.    After speaking with a few attorneys, and they in tu...
