Distress Market Experience
REO Foreclosure Professional, Short Sale Professional, BPO Broker Price Opinion Professional
Considering Broker Referrals
I used to work for mortgage servicers, including handling collections, foreclosures, and REO until I decided to get my real estate license and joined the "dark side" in 1994. Started out doing BPOs, occupancy inspections, and initial services until I landed my first REO account and that's all I've been doing since 1997. I and 3 partners opened Tropics Realty Group that year and things were looking good until the boom hit and REOs dried up. Ultimately only 2 partners remained and we decided to join forces with Keller Williams in 2004. Now it's just me and my team doing it all for a dozen clients including OneWest Bank, NationStar, CoreLogic, and Bank of America. Since 2008 we've sold over 600 REO properties totaling over $84 million in sales. I've also branched out into other areas of real estate, such as sourcing properties for hedge funds to purchase as well managing those rentals. I am CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) certified, and we are fully equipped to help people avoid foreclosure.
