January 2013 UPDATE!!  This program is no longer active! We have STOPPED Preferred Partner Membership.  Up until recently, Preferred Partner Membership was the way for agents to get listings directly from us, however that has changed as of 2/1/2013.  Prior to getting DIRECT assignments from us, agents must join the Short Sale Lead Machine program and fill out our NETWORK BUSINESS AGREEMENT as well and then send it back to us.  Click Here for an overview of these membership changes.

Short Sale Lead Machine Program - This program provides agents with their very own short sale niche website, marketing program, and many resources.  They are only $1 to set up.  In addition, agents who are part of the Short Sale Lead Machine Program can get DIRECT short sale listing assignments from the Short Sale Specialist Network for a 25% referral fee.

Access to our “members only” short sale resource website.
“Preferred Partner” membership logo added to your profile at www.TheShortSaleGuide.com . This will open you up to receiving many more referrals from other agents and the general public
Agents in our network receive referrals from us based on availability and are graded based on consistency, accountability, experience, and production.
Different areas of the country produce different numbers of referrals. Our top agents who prove themselves over time receive up to 4-8 listing referrals/assignments per month from us consistently. Our AVERAGE agent receives 1-3/Month. Some rural or small areas will produce less.
There is a need for multiple agents in major cities, as sellers are “paired up” with specific agents who may best be able to meet their needs. There are a few areas where we have filled up on agents that are noted on the payment page or below, but most areas are still open for new agents. We still post TONS of listing referrals on sites like activerain.com because we do no even have ONE good agent in many areas. Not to mention we are growing in volume very rapidly and will continue to do so this year!
We believe in giving ALL preferred partner agents in our network a chance. If you join, you will receive at least one listing referral as available in your market area from us during your membership. You will likely receive several, and if you are good you will likely receive them regularly.
ALL referrals are 100% Pre Screened. They are informed about the short sale process, given a financial worksheet and list of all required documents, and instructed to have these ready for their referred agent at the time of listing.
Prior to receiving any referrals from the Short Sale Specialist Network, you MUST sign and return our Network Business Agreement. ***Please read our Network Business Agreement prior to submitting your Preferred Partner inquiry form to make sure you agree to our terms and conditions!
If you are considering joining our Preferred Partner program, please read our testimonials and see what some of our active members have to say about us. We have been doing this for a little while and have not even charged ANY membership fee until very recently. Feel free to also set up a profile at www.TheShortSaleGuide.com and participate in any way you like!

I am located in metro Atlanta and service shortsale properties in DeKalb County, Fulton County, Rockdale County and Newton County.  I have five professional licenses: Georgia Real Estate License, Georgia Insurance License, Georgia Variable Annuity License, and FINRA Series 6 &63 License.  I am qualified to effectively communicate the financial advantages and disadvantages of the shortsale.  If you property value is upside down, it is better to abandon your real estate ship with a shortsale, and you can begin to sale free toward new property ownership.
