It's been my experience that the best "short sale" opportunities are those in which the seller has secured legal council to support their initiative and guide them through an often challenging ordeal. When it comes time to communicate with the lender, they tend to listen to attorneys before RE agents.

Hello Sophie,

Talk to a few different agents first and see which one fits what you are looking for. With today's technology you could skype with several agents in an hour or two and pick their brain. Now a days everyone is certified with short sales, REO's.. you name it, there is a certification for it.

Good luck, hope you find the right one to assist you.

Interview 2 or more agents until you find one that you think is competent and easy to work with.

I have handles many short sales, for both sellers and buyers. I use a professional negotiator to get the best possible outcome. There would be no direct expense to you.

There are programs that can get you relocation assistance or even lease back.

Let me know if you would like a meeting to discuss.

Have you already located the property or are you just looking for short sales in general?

Also, have you been pre-approved for a loan?

The best advice I could give you is to research Agents that have had successful results with short sales. Find out if they are willing to give you the name of the sellers of short sales and if you are able to speak to them. Don't rely on a "recommendation" , get an actual address, with a real seller, and a real transaction.

Sophie, The Debt Relief Act is going to expire 12/31/2013 and after that it could be very expensive for you to do a short sale. I have handled some pretty difficult short sales, so please feel free to contact me to discuss further. Every day you wait is critical.
