Do your due diligence. Measure how happy you are where you are now. Compare present with potential earnings. If it all worth it?
Whenever someone in a position of authority leaves a company, I always wonder why???
Did they discover some practice of the firm to be something they could not take part in?
Before you accept the position do your research. Check out the company ask around and try and find out if they have "goodwill" in the local, state and national governing bodies for the industry.
Find out if they are any legal cases pending in which they are named as a defendant.
As far as them doing loan mods and short sale, providing they are following the letter of the local, state, and federal laws, you should not have couse to worry.
Best of Success to you,
