"Shocking indeed.  I'm very interested to find out if that is the case in other states?  REO agents work hard for the banks, so I guess it's an extension of their business relationship.  Definitely interested in what others…"

About Me/Profile of yourself: - Please add your Brokerage Company name also!
I am dedicated and passionate about providing all my clients unmatched customer service, patience and diligence; whether you are a first time buyer or a distressed home seller or a real estate investor. I am certified in Foreclosure prevention and short sales.

I also work with Out of the Country Sellers needing a reliable Realtor proficient in long distance communications. I have represented Sellers who live in Indonesia and in South Korea.

I have a passion and love for the business as I do for all other things in my life. I received my R.E. license in 1998 and was with Fred Sands Realty before I joined Re/Max Beverly Hills (9 years) and last year in February 2009 I moved over to Keller Williams Realty Westside office. Prior to Real Estate, I was in the entertainment industry with the reality show COPS which I left to practice Real Estate. I have never looked back!

This would certainly streamline the short sale process. I know it's simplistic thinking, but we need some creative thinking to put a stop to the foreclosure bleed.
