"They always send me excellent leads, well qualified and ready to go. I am closing two more deals in April from listings they sent my way. And they even sent me my first million dollar listing...so when I tell you the leads are good...THE LEADS ARE GOOD! If you do short sales, if I were you I would contact them right away. You will be very glad you did."

"The Short Sale Specialist Network is awesome to work with. Probably 75% of the leads that I have gotten have turned into listings. I currently have 8 listings, 3 of them under contract that came directly from them. The best thing is that I don’t have to pay for them unless they close."

This group does an amazing job of screening their leads to the point that it is a 99.9% certainty that the homeowner is ready to list by the time you have their contact information. Their commitment to quality and integrity is outstanding. Since these qualities are imperative for me to consider being associated with anything, and hard
to find these days, I feel extremely fortunate to have formed this alliance."

I am very impressed with the Network. I thought I knew so much until I joined nearly a year ago. Nearly 80% of my questions have been answered through the network. This is better than all of the classes offered by my local MLS. I wanted to test the waters before referring other agents - and the waters are deep with knowledge.
I am somewhat disappointed that upon joining the partner group I have yet to receive one referral. I must be doing something wrong. I understand that the Los Angeles area is booked. So what is the advantage to pay to join the partner network? Another year is coming around soon and I will have to pay again. Someone please explain this to me. Again, the SSSN is superb.
This company speaks volumes with providing leads! A lot of flukes and imitations out there! That's not the case with the SSSN when it comes to providing leads, the volume with SSSN is consistently there. I like the fact that for every lead you get, they highly refer you as a professional with their company as one entity! They garner as much information as possible and qualify "if you will", the clients position to see if they are facing a hardship, not to say that we take a backseat and let them do most of the work. They simply ask enough questions to make us look the professionals they are touting this company and their agents to be! So a big thumbs up, they keep it real, simple and yes the leads come and a very friendly staff. They are tangible, friendly and above all easy to reach, just ask April and Andrew on my behalf! Mike is on the right path to grow this company, so, hope he continues to plant seeds and grow SSSN, and in turn, we reach out and help those who at all costs need professionals to assist and avoid foreclosure as their only option! :-))))
I joined less than 30 days ago. Expired listings have always been my primary focus. A seller called me from one of my mailers. She had been working with another agent for the previous year, the home was sold and the transaction didn't make it out of underwriting. Chase closed the file. This is where I come in. I met the client, called the previous agent and offered him a referral fee to share his knowledge with me. Chase was going to accept no less than $130,000, file closed. I listed the property at $125,900, the seller is redoing the paperwork
and I just received an offer. I felt insecure with the whole thing, until I posted on the Chase message board on the Short Sale Specialist Network. I received help from a few of the members. I now have the courage to proceed,
rather than feeling unsure of myself. Thank you
I am Happy to be a member of the Short Sale Specialist. My first Referral was AWESOME!! A double referral (both Seller and Buyer) met with both Clients in one day. Closed out within 30 days and walked away with $18,000 Commission. UN-BELIEVABLE for a short sale. This group of people are great to work with and I would Recommend this network to any one wanting to BOOST their Short Sale Business.
You definitely have an awesome testimonial there Hazel, I've mentioned it around to a few people! I remember when that deal happened back in like March or April. We referred her the seller and if I remember correctly the buyer was already in place. Easy deal with Litton (They ROCK!). Pretty good return for a $295 preferred partner membership fee, especially when that $18,000 commission was in your POCKET the month after joining us...
As a typical Realtor/Salesperson, and having the mentality to go with it, I must apologize for being out of touch with the people and organization that gave me most of my success in 2010 ,SSSN. The main reason I am the leading listing agent in my office, and in my Farm Area, is because of this great organization and people like Mike, April, and JP. I have recently had my first closing and have a hand full of pending offers. As the new year rolls around, I have already made a commitment to be more in touch with the people that I owe my success to. I have signed up for the GOLD membership in the Buyer refferral program, following the systems and the forumula of success that has made me happy to say I am a Realtor, and I can help.

Since Joining SSN I have received 5 leads, I have closed one, another in escrow and working on other three to list! Thanks so much!

I got my first referral and i contacted the seller and meet with them and i went to the appointment prepared with my short sale package and listing agreement and they gave me the listing right away. I am preparing the package to send it to the bank as soon as i get an offer. Helpfully it is on the way. I get a lot of referrals from attorneys, loan officers and clients but, I am so glad to be part of the Short Sale Specialist Network. 

I love Short Sale Specialists! The leads I get are high quality leads that they have prequalified. I have not only gotten listings but I have also gotten sales! They really know this niche market! If you are doing short sales you want to get involved and be a part of this organization!!
I absolutely love the leads I receive from the SSSN.  I just closed my first deal, I have 3 under contract, listed one this week and got another lead today.  I can't thank them enough for the increase in my business. 



I am so happy to say I have CLOSED my first deal with SSSN!! :D  I just want to thank April, Andrew, JP, Mike L., and everyone in SSSNetwork!  Looking forward to a lot more deals! :D


Mohammed B.

Pretty good one if I'm not mistaken Mohammed, Andrew showed me the other day. 


We sent him BOTH the buyer and the seller on a $300,000 listing for a 6% commission which came out to like $20,000 (15K after referral fee).  Pretty good return on investment...
