Hello Claudia,

I'm an experienced short sale agent. I've successfully closed short sales in MD and Va in which my clients have received money back at closing and they've never had a deficiency judgment.

In several cases, the short sale lender has paid condo fees. One paid up to $14K in condo fees and the seller received $10K at closing on an investment property.

On another my seller received $20K at closing on a property she didn't live in

I have worked with Bank of America in the past. It will depend a lot on the number of mortgages or if there are any liens, the amount owned on the property (mortgage), the patience of the buyer and the timetable you would like to move into the house. If you are patient, the short sale process might work for you. I might also suggest that you use an attorney who specializes in short sale transactions and they will help move things along the process by keeping in touch with the banks on frequent basis.

Hi Claudia, if your head isn't already spinning with choices, consider speaking with me. I have closed on 11 short sales in the past 18 months, with only two that didn't work out. I have worked with Bank of America before, and while they have always been a challenge, their staff and processes are improving with experience.

I work primarily in lower Montgomery County as I was born and raised here, and I know Bethesda very well. I work with an excellent vendor that stays in constant contact with the bank, putting constant pressure on them all the time, giving me and my clients the advantage over those who use their title attorney as "negotiators" or perhaps don't hire outside help at all.

Again, Claudia, if you're going to be interviewing listing agents to handle your short sale, please give me an opportunity to speak with you.

Good Morning Claudia,

I have over 30 years experience as a Real Estate Broker and Appraiser in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Many of our neighbors are having a difficult time in this job and real estate market. My goal is to make this event as easy as possible for you and to make sure you have all of the facts. and have considered all of the options before committing to a course of action. I have successfully completed over 25 short sales, I negotiate with the bank myself and will not "farm out" the negotiations to a third party. I have completed short sales with the major players in this marketplace.

Thank you for considering me in one of the most important decisions you have to make.

Well, I'll add my hat to the ring. Here's the brief bio for the beauty contest:

* attorney and real estate broker
* I live in Bethesda myself
* handle short sales exclusively
* just last year, we closed about 75 short sales; first short was in 2006
* we're the go-to short sale folks in MD - agents, title companies, investors and others have us negotiate their deals for them, in addition to direct homeowner-based short sales
* we know BoA well of course, and currently have 3 BoA short sales in their special escalation department because of assorted out of the box issues
* everything with us is totally free, including credit repair if necessary

Feel free to call to help filter other people, even if you are selecting someone other than us. Best wishes!!
